I have been asked many times about different types of clearings and cleansings. Some of them include room smudging (just like my article on negative energy cleansing) and personal or house clearing. This particular tip concerns areas in your home that might be stale or holding low vibrations — it just doesn’t feel good or right for some reason. It can be used quickly without smudging the whole house.
Space Clearing with Bells
We all know about wind chimes and bells hanging outside the house. It keeps the negative energies from entering the house. And it is a pleasant sound whenever the wind or breeze rings it. But bells can be used inside the house as well!
Usually small spaces, such as corners of a room, under tables, or next to dressers do not get as much movement as the rest of the room. So the energy gets “stale” or holds “old” vibrations. As a result, the room starts to take on a sour feeling when you enter it. It just does not feel vibrant like the rest of the house might.
This room might be one that is a guest room used only for visitors. Or it could be a “catch-all” place for those items you do not use all the time. Or, you might have had a repairman or service provider in your house and you want to spice up your living space again.
I always keep an old bell — I think it is a cow bell! — in my dining room. It has a special place on top of the sideboard. When ever I feel like an area of my house is stale or not lively any more, I just get the bell and ring it in that area.
I always start in a corner of the room nearest the doorway. Each corner gets a good shaking and a special intention of love and light. I work my way around the room, and shake the bell the loudest and longest in each corner. As I approach the doorway going out of the room, I bow towards the center of the room and ask for special blessings for the space.. Then I shake the bell several more times (just for good luck!)
Yes. It is that simple!
I even have jingle bells (left over from holidays gone by) hanging on the front and back door knobs. Every time we come in or out, the bells clear the path. I also have a few bells like that on the back of dining chairs. Every time we pull out a chair to eat at the table, the space is cleansed.
This Space Clearing with Bells tip is just one of many that you can use in your home, workplace or even your car! Other cleansings can be simple and easy, or more elaborate and geared towards ritual or ceremony. They all are positive ways to enrich your home.

Many Blessings on your cleansing endeavors.
