Transforming Space and Spirit: Weekly Ritual for Energetic Health

Life can be a whirlwind, and sometimes, our spaces reflect that chaos. I’ve noticed that when my surroundings are cluttered, my mind follows suit. This realization led me to create a ritual, a weekly practice that’s as much a discipline as it is an act of love. It’s a blend of the order I cherished in my military days and the energy work I embraced during my shamanic training.

Military Precision Meets Shamanic Wisdom

My time in the military taught me the importance of order and discipline. Everything had its place, and a well-organized space was a well-functioning one. Later, my shamanic journey unveiled a new understanding – the energy that permeates our surroundings. I learned that our environments don’t just hold our things; they hold our energy.

The Ritual

Every week, I dedicate a day to this sacred practice. It starts with cleaning in the traditional sense – picking up, organizing, dusting. But there’s more. I use Florida water, known for its cleansing properties, and essential oils to purify and uplift the energy of my space. Each motion is intentional, each swipe a gesture of care for my surroundings and, in turn, for myself.

The Science and Spirituality of Clean Spaces

It’s not just about aesthetics. Science tells us that a clean and organized space can significantly impact our mental health and overall well-being. Spiritually, it’s about harmony – the harmony between our physical environment and our inner state. This practice is my bridge between the two, a ritual that cleanses both my home and my spirit.

Practical Tips and Tricks

You, too, can start this journey. Begin with something small – organize a drawer, or introduce a plant into your space. Use scents you love to infuse your surroundings with positive energy. Remember, it’s not about perfection; it’s about intention and consistency.

A Practical Guide to Revitalizing Your Space

Transforming your space into a sanctuary of tranquility and energy isn’t just beneficial; it’s a fulfilling experience. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you create a space that mirrors the clarity and peace you desire.

Step 1: Declutter Room by Room

  • Begin in one room. Focus on collecting and clearing away any clutter, trash, or items that don’t belong there.
  • Be mindful as you do this. Consider if each item reflects the energy you want in your space.
  • Organize as you go – everything should have its own place.

Step 2: Deep Clean

  • Once decluttered, start cleaning. Dust, sweep, mop, or vacuum. Make the space physically clean and inviting.
  • Simultaneously, tackle your laundry and dishes. This ensures that, by the end of your ritual, every aspect of your home feels refreshed.

Step 3: Energetic Reset

  • After cleaning, it’s time for the energetic reset. This begins with intention. Stand in each room and set a clear intention for the space. It could be peace, productivity, love, or whatever resonates with you.
  • Use Florida water for its purifying properties. Sprinkle it lightly or use it in a spray to mist around the room.
  • Essential oils can be used in diffusers to infuse the space with calming or uplifting scents.
  • Smudging with sage, palo santo, or your preferred herb helps clear negative energy. Remember to open a window for the old energy to leave and new energy to enter.
  • If you’re attuned to Reiki, use it to infuse the space with healing energy.

Step 4: Final Touches

  • Once you’ve energetically cleansed each room, revisit them for any final touches. This could be rearranging a few items, adding a new plant, or simply admiring your work.
  • As you complete your ritual, acknowledge the effort you’ve put in. This practice is a form of self-care and love.

Our external and internal worlds are deeply intertwined. A cluttered room can lead to a cluttered mind, and vice versa. By taking time each week to care for our spaces, we’re also caring for ourselves. This ritual is my way of bringing harmony into my life, and I hope it inspires you to find your own methods of creating peace and energy in your surroundings.


🌟✨Remember, this practice isn’t about perfection; it’s about creating a space that reflects and supports your inner state. Whether you do this once a week or once a month, the key is consistency and intention. Your home is your sanctuary, and caring for it is caring for yourself.

I’d love to hear how you maintain energetic health in your own spaces. Share your practices and experiences in the comments. Let’s inspire and learn from each other in our collective journey towards balanced and energized living.
