New Year Spiritual House Cleaning
January is the 1st month of the Gregorian calendar, named for the Roman god Janus. Janus is the God of doorways and is often depicted with two faces, one to look forward and the other to look back which signifies the end of one year and the start of a new one. January's full moon is called the Wolf Moon and it's astrological sign is Capricorn. A popular custom is to open the front and back door of the home to welcome in the new year and to let out the old year.
This is also the time to cleanse the home of negative energy to make way for a new and prosperous year. Now that things are slowing down and the traffic in and out of your house will be back to normal it is the perfect time to perform this spell to cleanse your home of old or unwelcome energies and boost protection for those who live there.
This can all be done with one easy task. Take a new broom and tie on the following:
Basil for cleansing, lavender for happiness, nutmeg for good luck, gardenia for peace, cedar for cleansing, and lemon slices for cleansing.
You can place your ingredients in a small bag or piece of fabric and then tie that to the broom. Hold the broom in your and tell it that it's function is to clean away all residue of the past year and to instill peace, happiness, and good luck for the new year. Sweep out the entire house starting at the front door and work in a clockwise direction around the home ending at the back door. Sweep all the old energy out, close the door firmly and seal it with a kiss. While sweeping picture your home with a peaceful and loving atmosphere. See yourself and anyone who lives in the home happy and at peace with one another. Try to hold these images till you are finished.
~Note~ The sweeping that will be performed during this spell is a spiritual sweep, not an actual sweeping of the floors. Your broom is sweeping out negative energy, so you will be sweeping right above the floor. Make sure to get under beds, in closets and corners, anyplace where negative energy can build up.
I wish you all a prosperous new year!
