- Double Vision: House Harboring Negative Energy?
I think that my house is harboring negative energy. I have lived here for nearly a year, and on numerous occasions, I have felt intense negativity. It wasn’t like a ghost, but similar. When we moved in, there was already a halogen torch lamp in the second bedroom, which we moved to the hallway; interestingly, I have only felt the negativity in this hallway and bedroom. This house has been a home to drug abusers, including an abusive couple who had an autistic child. (This child actually screwed in a number of light switch plates in strange places around the house.) I have lost two roommates since I moved in last February, and under bad but strange terms. I am wondering if the lamp itself could be harboring negative energy, if it is attracting negative energy, or if it’s something else in the house itself. Also, what should I do?

Houses can and do hold energy, as can the land itself. It doesn’t have to be the energy of someone who lived there. I once lived in an apartment that had very negative energy.

I lived there for about a year, and it was truly one of the worst years I can remember, so I can relate to what you’re going through.
Find a local New Age shop and buy a sage bundle. If there isn’t a store nearby, you can find one on the Internet. (Simply type “sage bundle” into a search engine.)
Once you have the sage, say a prayer for protection. You can use the following prayer or choose your own words. “Dear Mother/Father God, I ask that you protect me and everyone living in this house from anything negative. Wrap me in Love and Light. Please remove whatever is NOT of Love and Light in this house. Thank you.”
Light the sage and then blow out the flame so the bundle is still smoldering. Then start in one corner of the house and work your way through the ENTIRE house. Do not forget closets, window sills, built-in hutches, etc. You need to simply wave the sage bundle through every room and every wall and every nook and cranny. As you are walking with the sage, you will feel the energy shift numerous times. You may at any time say out loud, “Whatever is not from Love and Light must in God’s name leave this place immediately.”
If a negative force is present, it HAS to leave if you tell it to in God’s name. That is a universal law. Continue through the whole house with the sage. When you are done, put it out in a bowl filled with sand or dirt. Just stick the burning end into the bowl and leave it there. If you desire, you may ...
