A spiritual house cleansing is often necessary to remove spiritual influences that can lead to a wide range of symptoms in your home, including persistent sickness, financial difficulties, emotional turmoil, a prevailing spirit of anger or chaos, and even more dramatic, creepy, even terrifying and paranormal activity.
The Internet is full of advice regarding spiritual house cleansing that is trite, weird, ill-conceived, and all too often, rooted in bad thinking at best and deception at worse.
Sage for Spiritual House Cleansing?
Many sites I found recommended using Sage. By taking this herb, waving it around the house or diffusing it in the air, they claim, spirits will be driven away.
Hey, that’ll work, because spirits hate sage.
(Really? Or maybe the spirits encourage you to use the sage to numb you to their presence so they can continue oppressing you secretly. Maybe sage is actually a spiritual magnet for demons…)
We need better thinking about spiritual house cleansings.
Earth Energy Disturbances?
Others encourage countering “negative energy” through moving your furniture around (really!) and changing negative charges on your household items or thinking to positive charges.
Yeah, because applying Feng Shui and electrical engineering to driving away spirits solves the underlying problems that bring dark spiritual energy to your home.
Universalist Prayers / Spells
One site recommended uttering prayers in rooms or casting spells over “holy water” or “essential oils”, especially prayers or spells that concluded with “in the Name of”, and then insert the name of whatever deity you believe in.
Whatever deity you believe in!
Really? I mean, don’t you just want to ask, “What if the deity I have belief in doesn’t want me to be spiritually at peace?” Or “What if the deity I believe in is powerless over the spirits in my house?”
“Believe Anything” is Not Good Advice.
Honestly, wishy-washy “it doesn’t matter what you believe in as long as you believe in it” statements are not just stupid, they are destructive. It’s intellectually dishonest feel good nonsense.
Why? Because essentially every faith is exclusive, and therefore almost every faith is false, because if the worship of all the gods are exclusive, then only god can be true.
But let’s be practical and think this through.
What if you are an atheist, and you keep seeing dark figures in your house at night that horrify you. But you think, “Hey, I don’t believe in the supernatural.” So you issue a spell in the Name of Atheism.
Good luck with that.
Or what if you follow Shiva, and those dark spirits actually have an assignment from Shiva to oppress you? You really think issuing a prayer in the Name of Shiva to drive those spirits away is going to work?
What if you worship Mother Earth, but you don’t realize that Mother Earth is just a tool of a powerful spiritual entity that is also in charge of the demons and ghosts oppressing you?
Do you really think praying in the Name of Gaia is going to work in driving those spirits away? What if an evil powerful spiritual entity is lord of both Gaia and the other spirits oppressing you? What if there’s a strategy to lure you down a destructive path? When you pray in the name of Mother Earth, those spirits might withdraw as a tactic to lure you down a new and more destructive path, such as a receiving a chronic autoimmune disease or other catastrophes.
You might retort, “Well, I don’t believe that. In fact, I refuse to believe that.”
What if your beliefs are wrong? What if truth is objective, and it doesn’t matter if you believe it or not.
Up is up, and down is down, and if you jump out of 10th story window, you will plummet to your death, whether or not you believe in gravity.
The fact is, following “any” deity is a pure prescription to failing in your spiritual house cleansing.
Where to turn?
What if you’re a follower of Gaia, or an agnostic, or a Muslim, and you suspect there’s something to this Jesus thing, but Christians are such hateful hypocrites and after all, the Bible isn’t really true, but you want to believe, but you don’t know what to do?
More Than a Prayer.
There has to be a better solution to the problem of conducting a safe and effective spiritual house cleansing. Most people who come to this site want a prayer and a procedure, well I have pages on these ideas, but they leave a lot to be desired.
I assume a lot of knowledge on you, the reader. But what if you don’t share some of the knowledge I’m assuming, even if my knowledge is accurate? What good is it to you?
That’s why I wrote Peace in Your House: Spiritual Cleansing of Life and Land.
Peace in Your House is a spiritual house cleansing manual rooted in actual history by actual scholars.
In Peace in Your House, you’ll learn about the power of your thinking to attract or repel spiritual oppression (page 32).
You’ll learn how our culture has trained us to think incorrectly about the spiritual realm, training us in conflicting idea, some rooted in science (page 47) and some rooted (page 54).
You’ll learn just what the Bible is and why it’s trustworthy in some things but not others, and just how to use its wisdom correctly (page 73).
Think like Jesus.
Then, I take you on a journey to train your thinking to be just like how Jesus Christ thought about the world. Why Jesus? Because he had huge success in cleansing lives and homes of spiritual oppression, and he said we could do the same thing!
We need to think like Jesus did about the forces of darkness that unleash spiritual oppression in our homes in the first place (page 87).
We need to think like Jesus did about the remedy (page 121). You can get a high level review of that here. The book goes into considerable more detail, taking you step by step, deeper and deeper, into this spiritual reality behind our physical world.
You’ll never see things the same way again!
After that, we examine ways to receive supernatural information to guide us in cleansing our homes of dark spiritual forces (page 149).
Once all that groundwork is laid, we start applying our knowledge to spiritual house cleansings. First, I interview several veteran spiritual house cleaners (page 245) and offer firsthand accounts not found anywhere else.
We’ll learn about cleansing families (page 259), homes, objects, oil, water, and salt (page 269). And only then do I go into detail regarding applying this knowledge to procedures for spiritual house cleanings (page 303).
Why wait till the very end? Why not just put those procedures on this website? Well, they are available, if you click around and search for them. I’ve already linked to them above.
But just giving the final chapter is irresponsible. It’s like giving a high-powered rifle to a novice, and saying, “Go and bring home a deer.”
The prayers and procedures are powerful, but they can be dangerous if applied on foundations of sand. I want to equip you with the foundation of rock, so you can clean your life and land of all dark spiritual forces.
Where Can I get “Peace in Your House?”
