What is a House Clearing?
Put simply, a house clearing is all about pushing out bad energy and finding new ways to bring in good, positive, healing and productive energy.
We have to understand that we live in a world based around energy and its movement. We see physical examples of this all around us. When water is unable to freely move it becomes stagnant. Saging, I will completely remove and push out the filth leaving a clean flowing environment and enhancing whats already naturally there.
Why do a House Clearing?
House clearings can help motivate to tidy a home and refresh the vibe. This can is especially important after repeated unwanted behavior in the home. For example, arguments, spiritual disturbances, divorce, drug behaviors, addictions etc.
Another reason to do a house clearing is honoring the spirit of the home. Your home is a sacred personal refuge from the stresses and chaos of everyday life and you should treat it as such. A home is where growth and cleansing can take place. It is your safe zone. It’s so important to uphold and enhance the energy in your home.
As you walk throughout the day you pick up energy from around you in your environment and from other people. You want to make sure you have a protective and cleansing layer as you enter back into your home.
How often should I Clear my Home?
Every home should be professionally, religiously and spiritually cleansed once. After that point my personal belief is the owner can spiritual cleanse their home by themselves or upkeep with their environment.
What are the Benefits?
-Better sleep. A better in flow and out flow of energy. Some research has suggested the use of sage contains compounds that could help ease insomnia.
-Classic garden sage (Salvia officinalis) is sometimes burned like white sage. It’s also been used to improve sleep and soothe anxiety.
-The most-used types of sage have antimicrobial properties. This means they keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay.
-White prairie sage (Artemisia ludoviciana) is both antimicrobial and antibacterial, White sage (Salvia apiana) which is used most often is antimicrobial. And both have been shown to repel insects.
-Though scientifically unproven, burning sage is may release negative ions, much like the additional support of salt lamps. Using aids like this, when you are releasing negative ions you are neutralizing positive ions.
-Most Common positive ions are allergens. which include pet dander, environmental pollutions, dust, mold. So neutralizing these will help with the negative effects of exposure to these things. (allergies, coughing sneezing watery eyes etc) However, please note If this is the case, burning sage may be a blessing for those with asthma, allergies, bronchitis, and other respiratory conditions. **But inhaling the smoke during the smudging can aggravate it. Wait until the smoke clears before spending time in the room.
-For healers in traditional cultures, burning sage is used to achieve a healing state — or to solve or reflect upon spiritual dilemmas. This has a small amount of scientific basis. Certain types of sage, including salvia sages and white prairie sage , contain thujone. Research of thujone is that it is a very mild psychoactive herb. It’s actually found in many plants used in cultural spiritual rituals to enhance intuition.
-Tradition suggests that smudging can literally lift one’s spirits to banish negativity. Some research supports this.There was a small case study in 2014 that did document the use of white prarie sage (estafiate) as treating anxiety and depression and other mood disorders *only in certain cultures.
-In addition to dissipating negative energy, improving mood, and strengthening intuition, smudging with sage is also thought to increase one’s focus. Salvia white sage has also been said to enhance cognition and alertness.
Lastly a benefit is purely in ridding the body, objects, and spaces of bad energy can help welcome in newer, fresher, and more positive energies. In a way, this could have an energizing effect and help with fatigue.

When is a Good Time to do a House Clearing?
At any point is fine. If you want to do one before you cleanse or tidy a home that will work. My personal recommendation for when to sage would be during the spring time and the fall after a nice house clean.
What is it Like?
Steps I Take: First, walking around the whole home and property, I will assess, feel and get to know the spirit of the home. I will feel for stagnant energy; bad energy, good energy etc. and make a note. I will use my discretion for disclosing any information.
Then going through heavier parts of the home with a sage of the house’s choice.
I will then spray or use an essential oil in parts of the home as necessary.
then move through the home clearing the walls and floors spiritually.
I end the clearing with a prayer, sustaining and purifying the home. The owner is free to join or not join. My recommendation is to be apart of the final prayer of the home, but is not required.
After which we will have a full discussion of the home and I will give suggestions of crystals, plants, oils, arrangements etc.
Do I Have to be Home?
You can if you want to be! You are welcome to follow and watch the process. You can also go about your day and I will proceed to cleanse and will contact you when it is over.

I will arrive on site with all things I need. Be open and ready for sage, I may ask for windows to be open. Children are welcome this is a sacred experience so I would ask for respect and reverence during the process which, but with that children and their natural excitement and questioning is still reverence and does not disturb me or the process. During the process talking and questions are 100% ok.
How Long is this Process?
Depending on the space anywhere from 45 min to 3hrs.
Most common time has been 1hr 30 min.
How do I Prepare Prior to the Clearing?
