Please read through the entire cleansing process before beginning. This ritual requires advanced planning!
When performing a major house cleansing you want to move from the top and back of your space and out the front door. If you have an attic or crawl space, begin there. Most folks like to cleanse and purify the home in a counterclockwise fashion.
It is also helpful to have at least one other person help you perform this ritual. It is physically exhausting and almost impossible to carry everything required from room to room without extra hands or a tool belt!
Creating Your Floor Wash
You can prepare your floor wash in advance.
Begin by boiling one quart of water. Add the Bay Leaf, Hyssop and Rue Herbs. Stir and boil for 9 minutes. Cover and Remove from heat. Allow herbs to steep for 9 more minutes and then strain into your gallon container.
In a separate bowl, dissolve the Rock Salt and Blue Balls in 1/4 cup of Ammonia. Add this mixture to the container also.
Now pour in the bottle of Chinese Wash (or other Uncrossing Floor Wash). Add nine drops each of Uncrossing Oil and Holy Water.
Fill the container to the top with water and mix thoroughly.
Advanced Preparations - The Pre-Clean
Spend a couple of days cleaning and organizing the home before engaging in the actual Ritual. Do the dishes, finish the laundry. Put everything in its place. Remove all cobwebs from ceilings and corners. Get those dust bunnies from under the beds and furniture. Sweep out attics and basements. Scrub out toilets, sinks and tubs. This is a great time to change light bulbs, clean draperies and wash blinds. Your house needs to by physically clean before you can make it spiritually clean.
On the evening prior to the Ritual, put a small pile of salt into the four corners of each room. Allow to sit over night.
Mapping The Cleansing
As you clean, change the water in the bucket frequently. This is why I have you mix the Floor Wash in a separate container. Try to gauge how many buckets it will take to cleanse the entire space and divide your Floor Wash up this way. Use all of it, but make sure you have enough to cover the whole space. I typically use one bucket per room.
Ideally, you want to walk each bucket out of the house and to the crossroads to dump it. Rinse the bucket outside with your garden hose. If you cannot do this because of nosy neighbors, etc., take the bucket to the curb and throw it down the sewer/storm drain. If you live in an urban apartment, you can dump the dirty water down the toilet. Neither of these are the preferred method. We like to take bad 'things' to the crossroads.
Also, you need to have an advanced plan for how you will move this water through the house. DO NOT go back through a room you have already cleaned with the dirty water.
If you have attics, basements or carpeted rooms, you can sprinkle the floor wash using the Bouquet of White Flowers. Remember: This Floor wash has ammonia and bluing in it. Be careful with your furniture, light colored carpets, dust ruffles, etc. If you have an abundance of carpet in your place, substitute Holy water and a pinch of Cascarilla in the Floor Wash for the ammonia & blue balls.
Lastly, the second half of the cleansing ritual requires you open all your windows and doors. Make plans for how to do this. Don't wait until you are in the middle of ritual to find out a window won't open or that you can't open the door without closing your pets up in another room.
The Morning Of the Cleaning - Protecting Yourself from Attack
In the morning, bathe and anoint the third eye, the navel, the bottom of feet, the wrists, back of neck and groin area with Protection Oil. You can make a Cross with the oil if you like. Use Cascarilla to coat the navel.
Tie the red string or ribbon around your waist. Put your underpants on inside out. Wear read undies if you have them. Put on light colored clothing.
Go through the house and open all interior doors and draperies, blinds or shades.
Begin at the top/back of space and moving from room to room, sweep each pile of salt to the center of the room and out the door. You can sweep the salt directly into a dustpan held outside the threshold of each door and place this salt in a brown paper bag or bucket.
Once you have swept up all the salt in every room, take everything you swept up that is now contained in the bag to a safe place outdoors. You can dispose of it properly later.
Beginning the Ritual - Step One
Dress 4 White Offertory Candles with Uncrossing Oil. Light one.
Go to the Front Door with the candle and make your prayers: I recommend 1 'Our Father', 3 'Hail Mary', 1 'Glory Be' and 1 Nicene Creed ( the 'I Believe') if you are Catholic. You can also say a Prayer to St. Michael for your protection while cleaning. If you are Pagan, call forth your alignments. You may want to perform the Lesser Banishing Pentagram Ritual.
Next, make a statement of your intentions to the Spirit. Let it be known that you intend yo reclaim your space for yourself and your family (Suggestions listed below).
Sit the candle on a white saucer at the front door and prepare your first bucket of Floor Wash. If you like, present it to the four directions and/or four archangels.
The Floor Wash - Step Two
Following your predetermined map, move through each room - wiping down windows, electrical sockets, faucets, drains, phones and woodwork with your white rag. Mop the floor from back of the room and out the door. Use the flowers to sprinkle floor wash under furniture, in closet corners, tops of windows and doors.
When you have finished washing down the entire place take the last bucket of water and place it with the Brown Bag of Salt from the earlier sweep.
Ritual Fumigation - Step Three
Go back in the house and Light another White Offertory Candle. Light your Charcoal and place it in the Incense Burner. Following the same path as you did when sweeping and mopping, go back through the house and fumigate each room with the Incense. You may add a pinch of Sulfur to each batch your burn. Allow the billowing smoke to reach up into cracks, crevices, corners. Make sure you fumigate behind curtains and fan smoke under furniture.
As you enter each room, allow the smoke to billow and fill the room, then open the windows and exterior doors. At this point, you will want to recite a banishing or exorcism prayer. Command all negativity and/or unfriendly beings to leave the premises (Suggestions Listed Below). Continue this process through each/room area and move yourself out the front door. Leave the incense burner and candle wax outside with the Brown paper bag and bucket of water.
Disposal of Mess - Step Four
Now you need to dispose of the Last bucket of water, the swept up salt, candle wax and incense ash. The easiest thing to do it take them to a crossroads away from your house. Light the third White Offertory Candle and pray to the Spirit that they keep all the negativity trapped there in the crossroads so that it cannot return to your home. Pour some rum and leave the 41 cents. Dump the ash, wax and salt out on the ground in a pile Over your left shoulder (if possible). Do the same with the bucket of water. Now walk away and do not look back.
If you cannot do this at the crossroads, you can perform the same disposal at either the cemetery or in running water - like a river, lake or at the ocean. If you go to the salt water, pour a sweet drink like Kola Champagne instead of rum.
Cleansing Yourself - Step Five
When you return home, walk in your house backwards. Go immediately to the bath and light your last White Offertory Candle. Make your Prayers to have any negativity removed from your body. Perform an Uncrossing Bath.
House Dressing - The Final Step
At this point, you may be tired and exhausted. However, it is advisable to redress or re-balance the energy of the house at this time. You may want to perform a simple House Blessing or House Protection Ritual.
You can move through the house in a clockwise fashion from the front door to the top/back and anoint above each window and door with a cross or protection sigil in Protection Oil. You can trace over this in Cascarilla if you desire.
Many folks use a prosperity, blessing or success floor wash and apply it in the opposite pattern that they did the cleansing. Some folks use an incense to instill the house with positive energy moving front to back and closing all the windows and doors as they move from room to room - keeping the new, positive vibe trapped inside.
At the very least, make a Blessing and Protection Prayer.
