One of the most important things we can do as spiritual beings is to keep ourselves and our personal space clear of lower vibrational energy.
What is lower vibrational energy?  
It is a collective of our negative thoughts, fear, worry, greed, addictions, abuse…you get the picture. These lower thought forms can stick to us, our environment and cause havoc in our lives. It can weigh us down and prevent us from raising our vibrations and consciousness.
Below are 10 simple yet effective ways you can clear and shift your space.
1. Use of Sage
The ritual of burning sage has been used throughout time for thousands of years. Sage is packaged in bundles and loose in bags. Be sure you have a shell or heat resistant dish to help catch the ashes. *For those who are sensitive to smoke, sage mist is equally effective*
2. Place a Crystal By the Front Door 
The crystal acts as a gateway keeper absorbing any unwanted energy (stress, fear, anxiety etc.) so it doesn’t enter your space.  Suggested crystals: hematite, black tourmaline, tiger’s eye, selenite, jet, blue lace agate and turquoise.
3. Burn a Combo of One Black and One White Candle
The black to absorb negativity, the white to bring in the light.
4. Place a Bowl of Water That Contains Two Tea Lights and a Pinch of Sea Salt in The Center of Your Home.
After the tea lights have finished burning, pour the water and salt outside into the grass. Do not pour down your sink or toilet,  you may create some plumbing issues.
5. Sprinkle Either Black Salt or Sea Salt Across The Threshold of The Building.
After clearing the inside, I sprinkle salt as a sealant keeping the inside of my dwelling and or business crisp, clean and clear.
6. Recite the Abbe Male Spiritus Prayer – A sacred prayer for banishing.
In Nomini Patris
(In the name of the father)

Et Fili 
(and the son)

Et Spiritus Sancti 
(and the Holy Spirit)

Abbe Male Spiritus 
(be gone evil spirits)

Abbe Male Spiritus

Abbe Male Spiritus

In Nomini Patris

Et Fili

Et Spiritus Sancti

In Nomini Jesu Christi 
(In the name of Jesus the Christ)

(So Be It)
7. Blend 4 Mojo Bags Filled With 3 Different Herbs 
Place the 4 bags in the 4 corners of your home. Suggested herbs: rosemary, sandalwood, angelica, clove, cedar, sage, thyme, peppermint and sweetgrass.
*Make sure the mojo bags are out of reach of children and animals.*
8. Burn Incense
Burning incense clears and brings in good energy. I suggest: Blue Nag Champa, Dragon’s Blood, Sandalwood, Chandan, Frankincense, Amber, Myrrh and Copal.
9. Clear the Clutter
When we have clutter in our space that we don’t need or any use for it, it causes stagnancy in our space. You can always donate the items if you are struggling with throwing your old goodies away. A home that is physically clean = An energetically clean home.
10. Have Zero Drama Tolerance 
Keep away the drama and the drama-filled people and triggers. Drama is an energy and vibrates and will attract a like frequency. You can request for spirit to assist with keeping your home and or space clear of unwanted energetic influences.
Tip: Be sure to stay on top of keeping your space clear. We have many experiences within our daily activities. Some influences are more of a challenge than others. Therefore, it is necessary to space clear one a weekly and yes, sometimes daily basis.
The benefits of space clearing are: healthier relationships, healthier bodies, abundance, joy, and raising of our consciousness.
I can’t think of any reason why anyone would not want to keep their own personal environment feeling clean and filled with light.
Blessings and Light,
