Amethyst: Are you struggling with stress and decision-making? We get it! That’s typical when dealing with deciding decor, where to put the furniture, home layout, and other family factors. If that’s you, Amethyst can be your best bet. This purple gemstone helps balance emotional and mental well-being.

Black Tourmaline: For the ultimate home protection, pick up a few Black Tourmaline crystals. Like an alarm that scares bad energy away, it repels negative vibes you’ve collected from outside and are trying to bring inside the home. Set it up near the doorways so those bad vibes are cleared away as soon as you enter. You can also try a crystal grid for ultimate home protection. Using Black Tourmaline at every four corners of the house and clear quartz in the center (optional), let the dark crystal work its magic.
Here’s a bonus: Try the Selenite Cleansing lamp to absorb negative energy while also reflecting vibrant, joyful energy for everyone to feel. If you have children or need some nighttime soothing vibrations, try an appropriate home decor piece made of Agate to protect and heal while you sleep.
First, Cleanse the New Space
When you move into a new space, it most likely has collected stagnant energy hanging around from its previous owners. While they may have packed the furniture, dishes, and said goodbye, their bad vibes can often stick around. The point here is that crystals can only do a part of the work. You’ll have to give them a clean slate to work with. To clear the air, try a cleansing ritual before moving in or at least on moving day.
Drawing on ancient techniques and Feng Shui, cleansing with sage, Copal, or Frankincense can bring energetic balance back into your space. First, make sure all the doors and windows are open to give the negative energy a chance to leave the home. Light the sage or Palo Stick for 30 seconds or until you have a steady amber to blow on. This will create enough smoke to cleanse and neutralize.
Next, waft the smoke into each room, remembering to hit corners, ceilings, and any small space. Negative energy tends to accumulate in corners—much like dust! Then, touch windows, hallways, closets, and all other areas with the healing smoke.
Cleanse your crystals, too: If you’ve already chosen your brilliant crystals for the new home as suggested above, you can utilize this cleansing moment to clear your crystals. Using the smoke to cleanse them will reinforce your intentions programmed within them and remove any energy that has followed them into this new place. This ensures that the two main energy collectors (rooms and crystals) are cleansed and ready to receive positivity and light!
First Cleansing, then Protection, then Manifested Positivity
Moving homes is an exciting endeavor that should be met with love and abundance. Many things can diminish your ability to think clearly and positively when dealing with the stresses of changing places, but you can take comfort in known that you have taken the necessary steps to a healthy, loving home. Cleansing is key to entering a place with a clean slate while protecting with powerful stones is key to keeping your energy at your ideal vibration. Then you have the safe space to manifest the warm, nurturing home that everyone adores.
