Cleansing Your Home of Unwanted Spirits and Entities

Mackenzie Wright's picture

Spirits and various entities can be lurking everywhere and anywhere. The vast majority do not have enough power to harm human beings, and many don’t even want to harm you— more often, they’re just attached to a location or object, or they’re wandering because they’re unable or unwilling to move on. They can be unpleasant, annoying or their presence may simply frighten you. Others are more malevolent, filled with anger or fear, or may have a wicked disposition. They might try to intentionally scare you and the people in your house, or even want to hurt you.

They can come into your life in many ways. Perhaps they’ve always been in your home, but you never noticed. Perhaps you disturbed them by touching something they used to own or renovating a room. A visitor or new purchase can catch their attention. Perhaps they came in with an object you bought at an antique store, or they were just wandering by and took interest in you.

Salt has long been used as a protection from unwanted spirits and entities. Bless a bowl of salt and throw handfuls around the room, charging the entities to be gone.

When you suspect unwanted visitors are acting up in your home, take charge to try and get rid of them before things get out of hand.

Fuming

Fuming is a process of burning dried herbs to banish unwanted entities. Clouds of fragrant smoke ward them the same way bug repellant can ward mosquitos.

To fume, place a heat-proof pot on a heat-proof surface. Light an incense charcoal briquette (never use barbecue charcoal, which is toxic when burned indoors) and put it in the pot. Then open all the windows and sprinkle a spoonful of herbs on it every few minutes to build up billows of smoke.

Certain herbs repel entities and make them slink back from where they came. Use sage or thyme if it’s a minor problem. If you feel the entity is mischievous or maligning and might not want to leave, use something stronger such as garlic powder, juniper berries, cinnamon or cloves. Leave the room if using these stronger herbs and come back when the smoke clears.

As you begin sprinkling the herbs on the hot coal, tell the entities very clearly that you want them to leave.

Water or Oil

Blessed water or oils banish entities, particularly those with more evil intent. Many churches sell holy water, but you can have your clergy bless it or bless it yourself with a prayer. You can also say prayers to bless a vial of olive oil, clove oil or cooking oil mixed with chopped, raw garlic.

Sprinkle holy water, or dip your finger in oil to draw a religious symbol (such as the cross) or a protective symbol (such as the 5-pointed star) on every door, wall and window in the house.
As you go from room to room, utter blessings and prayers from your Higher Power to assist you, and firmly tell the entities they’re not wanted and must leave.

Salt

Salt has long been used as a protection from unwanted spirits and entities. Bless a bowl of salt and throw handfuls around the room, charging the entities to be gone. Protect your home further, place a line of salt across every door that leads into your house and across every windowsill to create a barrier that will repel spirits.

Get Help

Some spirits and entities are stronger than others, or their intentions are so evil that they are not easily deterred. If you have a very nasty intruder, things may not improve—or may get even worse! While these cases are rare, it is the time to call in a professional medium, spiritualist or clergy person to help you
