Are you planning to clear away the negative energy from your home?
If you don’t know how to do it, take a look below:
I’m going to inform you steps to remove negativity from your surrounding by taking advantage of the power of a salt bowl.
1. Choosing a bowl
Before starting the ritual, it’s better to cast a circle first.
Let’s begin with choosing a bowl to use for the ritual. Depending on your preference, you can go with either a fancy choice or something simple and plain. In my case, I prefer simplicity so a black or white soup bowl will be my ultimate pick. You can prepare a smaller bowl if you don’t want to use much space for the negativity removal process.
If you plan to leave the bowl in the house for more than a week, I advise you to select the one non-porous.
“Why can’t I use a porous bowl?” Well, it doesn’t mean that you can’t use. The thing is that salt will penetrate all the porous material and perhaps destroy the protective layer it has. But if you have no problem with this, simply use whatever you want.
2. Choosing the type of salt
After having a bowl, you now need the main ingredient for the ritual. It’s fine to use the salt you already have in your cupboard; however, when it comes to removing negative energy spiritually, I don’t feel that industrially processed salt is natural enough. In fact, it’s mechanical and lifeless to me.
Due to that, I decide to use solar-evaporated Hawaiian sea salt. For anyone who wants to find the fancy feel, then consider pink Himalayan sea salt, Japanese flake sea salt, kosher diamond crystal salt, black sea salt, or other natural kind. If you don’t like you salt bowl having just one type of salt, then mix it with some regular sea salt.
3. Adding herbs and essential oils
This is the optional step, meaning you can follow if feeling want to.
When preparing for a ritual to remove negative energy, you all can be creative when reaching this step. Have a look at your cupboards and read the spice rack and tea tins carefully. You can consider adding some other herbs to your salt bowl to enhance the energy cleansing power.
For example, I choose juniper berries for my salt bowl because this is a protective herb that can help prevent me from adverse elements. In addition, peppercorns and cloves are also my favored picks – aside from protection, they are known as ingredients for negative energy banishment. In some cases, I will add some a few drops of thieves, lavender, or tea tree for better.
Other protective herbs for selection are bay leaves, rosemary, rue, and garlic. Not many know but the combination of salt and lemon can clear off negativity perfectly.
You can also use chakra stones to your spiritual bath.
4. Chanting your intentions out loud
Once all ingredients are in the salt bowl, use a spoon and mix everything together or you can just do it with your fingers. Remember to clean your hands first. While mixing it up, please saying your deepest intent out loud.
Repeat the following chant:
“Here I pray for this bowl of salt to cleanse the energy of my house and help me eliminate all the negativity.”
Do the meditation and keep your mind calm. Visualize that the negative energy is lifted off your shoulders. The power of your salt bowl will fulfill your wish and make you feel at peace in mind. Repeatedly chanting several times before going to bed to keep yourself more cleansed.

5. Finding a place to set out the salt bowl
The last step is to find a suitable place in the home to place your spiritual salt bowl. There are some ideal spots for your consideration, such as near the window or the hearth, or in the kitchen. From my experience, most people prefer to put their bowl of salt near the door.
The salt bowl can raise your awareness about the situation; thus, be conscious when using it. Take advantage of it as a cleanser to freshen your energy every time you pass by. The salt can help you push away or absorb the negativity, or you can send all the errant energies into the ground by holding a handful of salt in your hand.
Others say that they usually place four salt bowls in four corners of their bedroom. We all know that the resting space gives off the coziness, and its presence will create a magical feeling to all practitioners. If you want to try this but don’t like to add many salt bowls in the room, then simply sprinkle it at every corner from your main bowl.
As I mentioned windows earlier, you can pour the salt on the windowsills, but make sure your windowsills are not metal as well as your pet won’t climb up there (if any). Sprinkle some on the carpet in the living room and leave it there for absorbing for 30-60 minutes, and then clean it away with the vacuum.
You should give this a chance, and soon you will realize salt really changes the energy of the whole house.
A Glimpse at Feng Shui Cleansing Ritual

Feng Shui experts say that you need to prepare a mind with pure intention to draw positive and loving energy. Moreover, for the best timing to carry out the ritual, Friday is believed to be the best day in a week.
- Clean the physical fuss in your house and remove any object carrying old, stagnant energies recalling moments in the past.
- Open all the doors and windows to welcome a great source of energy to your home.
- Play relaxation music to keep your mind at calm and relaxed.
- Concentrate on the primary goal.
- Light the sandalwood and move it from your head to your toes. Let the smoke run through your body so that it can eliminate the negative energy as well as absorb anything disturbing.
- Maintain your focus on the ultimate intent while smudging the house. Start from the front door and keep moving clockwise to each room. Make sure you don’t skip any part in your home, such as closets, or under and behind the furniture.
- Return to where you began after finished clearing the whole house. Recite your affirmation to clear yourself.
- Sprinkle a pinch of salt in every corner. As soon as the salt attaches with inches of your space, the cleansing energy power will be activated and absorb negativity gradually. Repeat the ritual 2-3 times a month and clean the old salt at the same time.
Things to remember:
Don’t forget to take a spiritual bath before performing the ritual.
You should NOT eat the salt using for the session. As it absorbs the negative energy, consuming it will bring unbeneficial influences to your life.
Also don’t leave the salt bowl everywhere; otherwise, other members or your pets in the house will contact with it. Once the interruption occurs, the cleansing process will be paused and change the flow.
To avoid these situations, practitioners must throw the salt into the trash or somewhere you don’t like.
That’s all for the topic of how to cleanse your home of negative energy with salt.
Aside from using salt, you still can make use of other ingredients to magically provide peace, positivity, and happiness to your personal space and everything surrounding. Placing a salt bowl at any corner in your home can help absorb and remove negativity.
