I think the general impression of house blessings is that they are mostly either done to cleanse and protect a home of “entities” or because it’s a new home or space. These are reasons to have a home blessing, yes, but there are other reasons, too. I want to talk about different reasons to have a home blessing and in particular, an Angel home blessing.
Home blessings have been done for centuries and across various religious and spiritual beliefs. Making a ritual of blessing a space is nothing new. The new part is more about the way the ritual is conducted and perhaps the intent behind the ritual.
There are many ways to conduct home blessings. How you want it depends on you.
You can conduct it very simply ore more elaborately. You can have it with just one person or many people. You can make it short or you can make it long.
I love things to be simple yet powerful. So for my home blessing I didn’t go out and get a lot of supplies for the blessing. I gathered a number of staple supplies that I could reuse over and over for the spaces I’m in and whatever other homes that I may be asked to bless. For me it’s largely about the intent of those within the home as well as the intent of their friends and family for them. But maybe the gathering up the supplies you plan to use is part of what makes it sacred for you. Something to think about.
Why have a Home Angel Blessing?
The main reason for a blessing of space is to have a personalized home angel that resides within your personal space for the specific purposes you have asked the home angel to help in.
How cool is that? A home angel that is for: where you dwell and everyone, everything that goes on in within that space and around it.
When I first heard about this, I thought it was a beautiful concept and a wonderful way to get closer to God’s Messengers that are there for us always. Having a unique angel guide to reside within for our specific needs is a very special gift.
Some reasons to bless your home with an angel are:
- to punctuate your gratitude for the home that you do have
- to reinvent, refresh, reawaken, recreate the energy of your existing home
- if you are moving into a new space (any kind of space that you will be spending lots of time in)
- when a new baby comes to live in the home, when you bring home a new four-legged family member (dogs, cats or other cuddly friends)
- when you move in with your partner or have a new roommate
- when an old partner or old roommate moves out
- when you have a specific change that your are intending upon, i.e. to have a baby, to create abundance and prosperity, to find your soul mate, to live your life’s true purpose … get the pix?
- to place round the clock protection of your home
- to reel in and anchor down the particular blessings that you desire for your home/space.
A typical blessing of space is actually a relatively short ceremony. What makes the Home Angel Blessing special is that it is long enough to feel sacred, loving and a celebratory event.
The Home Angel Blessing brings together as many or as little very important people in your life — those friends and family who you love and adore.
Love is a very important ingredient in the home angel blessing. When there is love, your particular home angel will not feel shy to come around because the angel can feel the circle of love waiting to receive him/her from where he/she is waiting to be called for your specific home.
Every home has a unique angel, but you may not have the pleasure of knowing your angel unless you welcome your angel on in through this beautiful ceremony. Your home angel wishes to make a connection with you, be invited by you, and called into the home to be anchored there.
Your home angel is waiting to be called home.
One of the fun parts about the Home Angel Blessing ceremony is coming up with your home angel’s name. People really do know their home angel’s name. Our first home angel’s name is Mikalonia. Actually, it was my husband who received her name. So cool.
Once your home is blessed with an angel the feeling of your home will be different. Because of your home angel being anchored in your home, there is a holy protection around you always. Your home’s peace and harmony will always be restored. You can ask your home angel keep watch on your home while you are out, watch over and protect any beloved pets, or even lift any “fog” that is darkening your home. Archangel Michael is always there for us, too. It just gives a special feeling to know that we have a specific guardian for the specific home or space we are in.
