Once I was in Ghana, West Afraka, I watched girls sweeping their earthen flooring with a deep sense of objective.
Preserving the house clear all the time started with sweeping away bodily dust. However this exercise additionally symbolizes eliminating adverse vibrations. For instance, if somebody adverse comes into your house, decide up a clear broom and sweep out the low vibes after they depart.
For deeper cleaning after traumatic occasions resembling demise or fireplace or violence, “sweep out” your Physique Temple as properly by consuming inexperienced leafy greens and recent fruits. For cover upon getting swept your house, place a braid of recent garlic above or by your door. Preserve a brush by the door for emergencies. When a adverse individual or expertise departs, merely sweep the unhealthy vibrations out of your sacred area.
In case you can, use a cinnamon broom or sweet-scented broom to comb in good vibrations and to ship sweetness and kindness to the person who has simply departed the home. Use compassion while you sweep out and launch adverse vibrations.
To make a cinnamon broom, boil a big pot of water, flip off the flame, and add 2 tbsp. of powdered cinnamon. Place the pot on the ground on a trivet and place the broom within the water. Permit the broom to steep within the pot for 4 to eight hours. Take away the broom and shake off the surplus water in a tub or outside. Let the broom dry within the solar if potential.
