I often get asked how to properly clear a home or space from negative energy.
The very first (and most important) thing to do is to set your Intention - what you desire and project. Your intention here would be that your home/space is clean and clear from anything other than the light.
As you burn your sage or spray your
“clearing spray," say
aloud or in your mind:
"My home/space is clean and clear from anything other than the light."
Simultaneously hold the burning sage or clearing spray, using its vapors/smoke to outline your home. Outline with smoke or spray all the doors, all the windows and room. Just imagine following the lines of each room.
When finished, put out/rub the smoke out of a sage stick with sand or dirt. You can also use water, but water can mold the remaining sage stick.
