House Blessing Spells and Talismans

by Raven and Crone

HOUSE BLESSING

Assemble:
Salt and Water
Incense for fire and air
Milk and Honey
Oil for anointing
Wine for the offering, can be white wine or a cider
Bells, Pots, Pans, Whistles, etc.

Cast a circle in the main room - living room and after casting, visualize the circle expanding to include the entire house. Call upon the spirits and energies living in the house or apartment. Invite those who will be harmonious with the new household and its energies to remain. Invite - ask those who will be happier elsewhere to depart.

Release all "energies" not compatible with the new household. This may be expressed as a "release" in order to unbind anything that may be stuck. Then call upon, greet, and invite ancestors, patron deities, and all harmonious spirits and energies to dwell in the house as they please.

Gather up the pots, pans, and all the noise-makers. Go to each door and window, not forgetting the fire-place and dog-door, making as much racket as humanly possible--to shoo out anything unwanted. This can be fun, and also raises lots of energy for the next important step. Go again throughout the house and at each portal  such as doors, windows, etc. sprinkle salt - water and cense, saying:

"By the Elements I purify and charge this portal."

Then anoint the portal with milk and honey, saying:

"By Milk and Honey I ensure prosperity and peace within this place."

Finally, anoint the portal with oil, saying:

"With Oil I seal this portal and protect all within."

At the front door a special prayer is said, asking the guardian deities of God and Goddess to freely grant entry to all friends and loved ones, and to prevent passage to any who would do harm." Then, if it's a house, pour wine across the width of the threshold; if it's an apartment anoint the threshold with light touches of wine.

The house holders then each take a sip of wine, leaving some as an offering to the Gods, and the Circle should be closed. The remaining wine, milk, and honey should be offered to the Gods outdoors.

This is very effective if done as part of a house warming party, followed by much feasting. It has also been done very effectively by two people. It only takes about 30 minutes to do a large house. You can take the time.

Do make certain to "ground" afterward, by closing the circle and by eating.This ritual can "stir" up everybody and make the house feel full of "buzzy" energy. Author Unknown

Blessing New Home Chant

Touch the lintel and touch the wall,
Nothing but blessings here befall!
Bless the candle that stands by itself,
Bless the book on the mantle shelf,
Bless the pillow for the tired head,
Bless the hearth and the light shed.
Friends who tarry here, let them know
A three fold blessing before they go.
Sleep for weariness - peace for sorrow
Faith in yesterday and tomorrow.
Friends who go from here, let them bear
The blessing of hope, wherever they fare.
Lintel and windows, sill and wall,
Nothing but good, this place befall.

HOW CAN I PERFORM A HOUSE BLESSING AND WHAT METHOD SHOULD I USE?

There are many ways to perform a house blessing. It's important to use the method you feel most comfortable with that you are either drawn to, or coincides with your spiritual beliefs. You can combine elements of different house blessings into your own method.

WHY DO PEOPLE PERFORM HOUSE BLESSINGS?

House blessings have been performed for centuries and span various religious and spiritual beliefs. A house blessing can be done to increase the flow of good energy and bless, or to protect against a haunting or unrested spirits that may reside there.

HOLY WATER

Some people revere holy water as a very powerful tool in house blessings. You can scatter holy water about and say some prayers of protection or cleansing, as in a traditional house blessing or exorcism.

SEA SALT

Some use sea salt scattered around rooms and or a structure's foundation to ward off active spirits. Sea salt cleanses and protects, creating a shield that the spirits cannot communicate through.

INCENSE - SMUDGE STICKS

Others use incense and or smudge sticks, in conjunction with a ceremony and/or incantation to protect and bless their homes.

HERBS

There are herbs that have been used throughout history as a representation of protection. This belief throughout the centuries contributes power to it's self and use. They can be used in ceremonies and scattered about, burned or kept in a pouch.

FENG SHUI

Many people observe the guidelines of Feng Shui to assist them in creating an interior that is inclusive of a healthy flow of energy. Colors, images and placement of decor and furniture is all a part of Feng Shui.

TALISMANS

Some people still choose to wear and utilize talismans as a means of protection, as many of our ancestors did throughout history. These can be in many forms; charms, pouches, stones, crystals and symbols. These can be of any faith as talismans of the past and through to the present all represent different beliefs and deities. From a crucifix to rosary beads, a pentacle or rune.

ICONS and STATUES

Statues and icons representing various deities are very powerful and have also been used throughout history to present day. These could vary from a statue of the Blessed Mother to angels, Buddha or Isis.

PROTECTION OF THE PAST: SUPERSTITION and FOLKLORE

There are many folktales and beliefs through history that include warding off evil spirits and energies. Minds and souls of the past put much faith in a jar of sand on their windowsill and doorstep. They believed any ill spirits that wandered there would be trapped in counting the grains of sand and never enter. Glass "spirit globes" of spun glass were hung in windows to enchant any dark spirits passing by and keep them from entering. Talismans and protection pouches were also quite common and popular.

EMPOWERING A TALISMAN OR HOUSE BLESSING

Whether creating a talisman, pouch or performing a house blessing, the energy of your mind and soul that you place into it is very important. Keep your focus of protection and security in mind as you perform or create your protection blessing/talisman.

EMPOWERING YOUR HOUSE BLESSING WITH WORDS

The words used in a prayer, incantation or ceremony are very powerful when created from your own mind and soul. If you feel unable to use your own, then a pre written blessing would be best. It's most important to have a strong faith in the power of whatever words you use, whether it's written by yourself or another.

Good luck with blessing your home and performing your own protection ceremony. There is no other house warming gift that gives more peace and serenity. by Rachel Cadran

TO PROTECT AND BRING PEACE AND HARMONY TO YOUR HOME:

Take equal parts of Betony and Lavender or what ever you prefer, blend them together in a mortar. After mixing well, charge the herbal mixture. Using a small amount, sprinkle across the doorstep. All the while, you should be concentrating on the vivid barrier and repeat the following incantation:

"This doorstep with its welcome ways,
be guarded by a shield of rays.
to guard this home by day and night,
protect it with this door of white.

Let nothing enter not of good,
and those within do as they would.
The aura left by herb and spell,
will safely seal this entrance well."

TO BANISH NEGATIVE FORMS FROM YOUR HOME

Begin with a purification bath. Light the twin candles on the altar and burn a protective and/or cleansing incense. Fill your chalice with fresh water and be sure to consecrate it and blessed salt. Kneel or assume the Goddess position as you say:

"Naked come I into this sanctuary
With love and faith
From those who have gone before.
Innocent am I in understanding
Holy and pure in my love of all good and blessed things.
Supreme Goddess, ruler of light,
Lord of all
Hear my prayer,
Help me now to dispel this thing of unholiness
This creature of darkness,
Who dooms itself to shame and unhappiness.
Save him if it is thy will to do so.
Send him to the light.
Mercy is the song I sing;
Forgiveness the word most precious.
In thy everlasting grace I say this.
In humility I ask this.
So mote it be."

Take up the chalice of salt-water, face the east wall, dip your fingers into the water, raise your hand and say:

"Powers of the East
Powers of the daystar rising
And all fresh beginnings
I purify you with salt and with water
For good vibrations of friendship warmth and love."
Then sprinkle some extra water and proceed to the south. Say:
"Powers of the South
Powers of the summer sun
Which warms our bodies and our minds
I purify you with salt and with water
For good vibrations of friendship, warmth and love."
Repeat in the west:
"Powers of the West
Powers of the purifying and cleansing waters
From which all life comes.
I purify you with salt and with water
For good vibrations of friendship, warmth and love."
Repeat in the north:
"Powers of the North
Powers of the earth, the ground
On which we stand.
I purify you with salt and with water
For good vibrations of friendship, warmth and love."

Then proceed around the room sprinkling water over all the thresholds,windows, and doorways and in all corners.

REPEAT IN EVERY ROOM

Add more incense to the burner, take up, and do the same thing, using the same verses substituting "fire and air" in place of "salt and water." As before, proceed around the room censing all the thresholds,windows, doorways, and in all corners.

REPEAT IN EVERY ROOM

Take the fire candle or a candle for this purpose and your athame and, starting at the door or entrance, walk slowly CLOCKWISE through the house, through each room pausing at each door, window, and mirror and moving the candle across it, also pentagramming each window, doorway, and mirror with the athame. Proceed room by room spiraling clockwise. All the while chant the following:

"By the One Power
I hereby consecrate this space
To the Goddess and the God,
According to free will
And for the good of all;
I hereby release,
In all time and all space,
Any negative cause, effect, manifestation, form or essence,
Any negative event, thought, energy, idea or vibration,
And transform it to
And replace it with
Only positive, joyous good
In keeping with the Universal harmonies
Of the Goddess and the God.
This space is divinely protected
This space is perfectly safe.
Nothing and no one can enter this space
Unless I (or my loved ones) allow them to.
This space is sacred
Consecrated and dedicated to positive living
For myself and my loved ones
And for the work of positive magic.
No harm can come to this space, or anyone in it."

As you draw each pentagram say:

"Only good can enter here
No negatives can enter
All harm is sealed out."
When you are back at the entry point conclude:
"Love lives here
Health lives here
Abundance lives here
(Name self and loved ones) live here
We claim this space for ourselves, for the mutual good
And so mote it be!"

PEACEFUL HOME

This spell is very good if there is a lot of turmoil or stress in the household. Do the following spell, and while doing so, remember to focus on your intent for a peaceful household. Sew a small pouch of lavender cloth. Place a small trinket in the pouch for each member of your household. Add to this a pinch each of lavender, rose and chamomile, before placing each pinch in the pouch, remember to hold it for a moment and REALLY focus, finally, add a small amethyst. Now, anoint a lavender or pink candle with peace oil and then light it. Sit in front of the candle and hold the pouch in your hands and whisper the following chant over it softly 3 times:

     Blessed Goddess, most gentle one,
     calm my home for me.
     Relieve all tension, send it far,
     so from stress we shall be free.
     Touch my family with peace and calm,
     and the sweetest softest bliss,
     bless my home, Great Gentle Goddess,
     with your calming kiss.

Set the pouch with the candle. Allow the candle to burn down completely. Hang the pouch in your home, preferably in the room where everyone gathers the most. Whenever tension seems to build, repeat the above chant 3 times and envision peace and tranquility radiating from the pouch and The Goddess. ~source unknown

Moon Water Ritual for a Peaceful Home

Fill a glass bowl or jar with clean water. Place either a quartz crystal, moonstone, or both in the water. Add three drops each of rose and lavender oil, and set the water outside overnight in a place where the light of the Moon can shine upon it.

Say this blessing upon the water:
Moonlight,
bless this water,
clean and pure.
May it bring peace
and simple joy
to my home.

On the following morning, pour the water into a spray bottle or covered jar, allowing the stones to remain in the water if possible. Use the elixir to mist each room of your home, and visualize peace and harmony. You can add the rest of the water mixture to your bath water,or use it to anoint objects.
