Sweeping with Intent
From Global Psychics

At this time of year, every Witch gets out her broom for some inner travels, to make some magic. You too can create some magic with your own brooms by carefully sweeping every inch of your home and property – and doing it with the intent of clearing out the old stale energy and making room for some new life to enter your space.

Here’s how it works. Make a ritual of the exercise by planning it, setting aside a specific time to do the clearing work – you could also decide that this is a great time to make a family event of the work so you can also wash the walls, woodwork and floors, giving your entire home a real fall cleaning, but that’s up to you… Choose some upbeat music to play in the background while you work indoors, do everything you can to set the mood for your work. Begin by saying a private prayer (no one else needs to now what you’re really up to), giving thanks for your home and all that it represents to you… Light a candle, and keep it burning while you work…. then get started.

Room by room, sweep the ceiling and walls to clear any of the cobwebs that might have collected over the summer, then do the floors – be sure to sweep the corners, and to sweep every inch, moving everything out of the way to do under the beds and cupboards – regardless of whether you think it needs it or not. As you work, keep your mind focused first on your gratitude for everything that makes you feel safe and secure in your life, then on clearing away any old energy that might be interfering in your progress, and finally on what it is you wish to create in your life over the next months. If your home is carpeted, use a vacuum, but try to use a broom for the ceiling and walls and any tiled or wood surfaces.

Then be sure to dust everywhere, again, picking up and moving everything out of the way so you have cleared the dust completely from your home (even if it’s only for an hour… we live on a very busy street and the most we can ever hope for is a couple of hours dust-free…) Be especially careful to dust and scrub your phones, intercoms and all areas associated with communications from your home. This is a good time, too, to tend to anything living in your home. Clearing any dead leaves and twigs from your plants and giving them some extra food for the winter is an especially good ‘active meditation’ to include with this exercise.

Remembering your witchly intents of clearing out the old stale energy to make room for new life, it is important to be thorough with this particular exercise!!!
When you’ve swept and dusted every inch of your home, head outdoors. Rake the garden, sweep the deck, the patio, and with special care, sweep the entrances to your home, including the driveway and surrounding sidewalks. If you live in an apartment, sweep the hallways all the way to the elevators or whatever outer doors allow you entrance to your home. Even if this is the responsibility of a caretaker, this is one time when you want to do the job yourself. If anyone questions you, just laugh and tell them you’re in the mood for some serious spring cleaning and your own apartment just didn’t give you enough to do… They may think you’re a little nuts, but I doubt you’ll find anyone objecting to your giving the area an extra polish…

Keep in mind as you work that you are clearing the way, making it easy for everything and everyone you need in life to reach you easily… So be sure that you’ve swept around your mailbox too! When you’ve finished your work, take a moment to once more give thanks, now for all the blessings to unfold this summer. Now that your home is clear, you’ll be ready!
