Of course I began this post ages ago and meant to have far more time to sit peacefully and write .
I have rushed into the city for 2 days to pick up items for two fairs I am setting up a display table at . So I think I best at least get this post written down so people can visit and get the general idea on what is involved in cleansing & blessing the home & surrounding area.
Cleansing & Blessing the home is a wonderful refreshing gift . We offer this service free of charge as well but of course like to encourage people to try this on their own . We do seasonal blessings &cleansings just as you do spring or fall cleaning . There can be casting out cleansings just as we do getting out loads of items for the second hand or doing a cleansing fast of the body , mind & spirit . There may also have been an event which took place such as a birth or death in the family that one may feel the need to have a home blessed & cleansed .
A home / yard blessing can take from 1-2 hrs depending on that which is needed as well as the size of the living & outdoor areas .
So what is involved in the cleansing & blessing . Well it is a spiritual service that is for certain . Next I tell people I will not bother to do a home blessing if the people themselves have not gone to the effort to clean the their home or that of their loved ones first . It does not mean your home need be spotless , spic & span . No but it is pointless to give the medicine if the patient is not going to also take the steps to get well in all areas of their lives . The same goes for a home blessing . I cannot come in and cleanse a home of a hoarder unless they are taking the steps to tackle their home also.
Prayer is always #1 of course . I pray after speaking to the home owner etc. what is needed , wanted , going on etc. Then pray pray pray ☺ from here will be chosen what smudges etc. to use .
I am a silent prayer person but am also working on bringing a drum along , however my busy dh is far to busy right now to make me my drum , however when he does guaranteed it is going to be very special ☺
For now below are some pics and descriptions of what goes into blessing & cleansing of a home
lol first off You need , One Mum & perhaps a bunch of wacky kids
I thoroughly sweep the inside of the dwelling with a small hand held broom. This represents getting those old cobwebs , spirits etc. out . Get the air stirring from top to bottom ☺
We then head outdoors to sweep the yard , don't forget to open those gates and close them again ☺
this is a broom from the Philippines and India made from coconut , dh wants to start making the small corn brooms for people from local home grown broom corn ( yes he has great ideas )
we have a variety of items & tools for this process
such as holy water , salt & oil
I then walk around the home and yard to bless with holy water , oil & salt
If you feel in need of a priest then we by all means should call in a Priest to bless our homes !
I am not here to argue with others if I should or should not be providing this service if you have a problem with take it up with your god because it is a problem between you and creator that does not involve me !
However many people are not catholic nor christian and not open to nor do they feel comfortable having a Pastor or Priest into thier home they are however comfortable having someone like myself or a friend come into thier home to provide a blessing .
I am an intercessor / shaman . I love prayer , it is my spritual work , a part of who I am . I will never ever not be able to pray it is a must for me I also love to share as well as teach prayer to others . I offer it free and many are happy to recieve ☺
