Sometimes a home needs a blessing before the new buyers move in. Maybe the home has bad ju-ju from a divorce, or mean-spirited people have been living there. Maybe the home is just down-in-the heels from neglect or abuse. The energy needs to be changed. Here’s how I do a short, simple blessing for particular homes . . . or special clients.
Gather my kit:
Turn on the music
Put on the prayer shawl (optional)
Set the compass down in the middle of the living room floor (to orient the house . . . and the owners . . . to the four directions)
Light and place votive candles out on the axes of the 4 directions, a few feet from the compass
Meditate in silence for little while
Face the North and say: From the spirit of the North we ask for blessings on this home. We promise that we will honor our Ancestors in this home, the Ancestors of this family and of all peoples who have dwelt upon this place. May the Ancestors be remembered and honored in this home.
Face the East and say: From the spirit of the East we ask for blessings on this home. We promise that we will honor all our Relations in this home. May our Family find this home to be a place where bonds of love between the members of this Family grow stronger with every visit. May our Family be honored in this home.
Face the West and say: From the spirit of the West we ask for blessings on this home. We promise that we will honor our Friends in this home. May our friends find comfort and ease, laughter and fellowship with every visit. May our friends be honored and entertained in this home.
Face the South and say: From the spirit of the South we ask for blessings on this home. We promise that we will honor the greatest spirit of the universe, whatever we believe that spirit to be. We promise that this house will be a sanctuary where righteousness and kindness dwell. May the Greatest Good be honored in this home.
Ask if the new owners would like to say a prayer.
If so, cool.
If not, I say:
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
Om Peace Peace Peace be upon this home and all who dwell within. Amen.
I ususally give the new owners the votive candles and holders as a little souvenir.
