A home should be more than just a structure. It is your retreat from the world.
If you’ve ever purchased a home, you know it’s not just about what you see… it’s about how you feel. That’s why realtor Helen Lynch goes beyond the updates and staging when selling a home. She recognizes the important role energy plays in feeling at home.
You cannot see energy with the naked eye, but you can certainly feel it.
The energy left by the previous tenants is called an “imprint.” It’s not necessarily bad or negative energy. It may be a combination that does not align with that of new buyers. This can lead people to feeling off or even uncomfortable in a home, despite no visible factors.
Three ways to cleanse your home:
1. Open the windows
A recommended method for first-timers is to simply open the windows and use your hands, a broom or large poster-type board to “swish” or “shoo” the energy. Visualize the negative energy leaving through the windows.
2. Burn some Sage
Place the herbs in a heat proof pot or bundle them with twine. Use a small flame and extinguish it when smoke appears. You can place the sage in one spot and allow the smoke to billow throughout your home or carry it around from room to room. Rose, lavender, frankincense and patchouli are other herbs/oils that are said to be specific for energy cleansing.
3. Incorporate Salt Lamps
Himalayan salt lamps are said to cleanse, deodorize and reduce allergens as well as balance energy. Salt lamps purify air through the power of hygroscopy, meaning that they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment then absorb those molecules – as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying – into the salt crystal
There are many ways to remove energy from your space, which can go a long way in restoring balance and harmony in your life as well as that of other family members. It may not be something everyone believes in the practice, but when a home needs to be sold quickly, buyers are often in a position of “We’ll do anything.” Helen recounts of a property that was on the marketing for over three months. She asked the sellers if they would be interested in an alternative method, they agreed. Within three days of the cleansing, contracts were signed and the property was sold.
Whether it is understood, or not, there is something that Anne Mcdonough’s services provide that go beyond what the eye can see. The practice has aided in the sale of many homes.
