Just as you clear negative energies from yourself, it is also possible to remove old or stagnant energies from a room or particular space. In fact, don’t stop at simply cleaning your each room in your home. Go ahead and begin clearing the negative energies from your space.
The space around you is important! I often refer to it as our intimate environments when discussing the arrangement and design of a space. The thing is, not only do you want to keep your rooms free from physical clutter but, you must also clear the energies of a room.

- Smudge stick

Step One • Cleanse Yourself and Others
Before you cleans your space, you must first cleanse yourself and anyone else in the room with you. Please refer to Self-Clearing of Negative Energy.
Step Two • Walk Around the Room
The next action is to walk around your room with the smoldering smudge stick and waft it into all corners. While you are doing this, call on the spirits of the sage to remove negativity from the room. Then, ask for balance and harmony throughout the space.
Step Three • Walk to the Center of the Room
Now walk to the center of your room and stand quietly. First, turn to the east and using your smudge stick and feather, fan smoke four times to the east. While you are doing this, say this:
Spirit of the East, great Spirit of Air, cleanse and inspire this space.The Smudging and Blessings Book

Turning to the South, again smudge four times and say this:
Spirit of the South, great Spirit of Water, strengthen and bring peace to this space.The Smudging and Blessings Book
Step Five • Turn to the West
Turning to the West and smudging four times, say this:
Spirit of the West, great Spirit of Fire, energize and protect this space.The Smudging and Blessings Book

Now squat down and waft your smoke towards mother earth and say this:
Great Mother Earth, nurture this space from below.The Smudging and Blessings Book
Step Nine • Stand Quietly and Visualize
Now stand quietly with eyes shut and visualize the Great Spirits standing guard around your room. In the tradition of the Native North American Spirit Animals, they are:
