A witchy tip from St.—-Decontaminating people before they enter your space
I don’t know how your lives are set up, but I am very lucky to have a lot of personal space. Like … a lot. 99% of the time if someone needs to speak to me they have to walk through a door or pass a threshold.
Humans carry a ton of muck, like animals who get barbed seeds stuck to their fur and incidentally pollinate the world they live in with said seeds. So, when people step into your personal space, they pollinate that space with their energy.
Of course you can always cleanse that space after they exit… every time they exit … over and over again … until you give up.
You can set up a decontamination block. Much like one before you enter a sterile area— such as a lab where they make microchips.
You do this by fortifying your thresholds and doors. My door has a nice, glowing, white film that people pass through before entering my space. It decontaminates their energy and leaves all of their bullshit outside.
When they’re done talking to me, they leave, pick their shit back up and go on about their business <—- which keeps me from running into it when I leave the space. However, it also makes people very aware that your space is different from the rest of the space. Sometimes you get the stepping in and out, and comments of your space being warmer/colder/more pleasant, etc.
So yeah … decontamination.
Do you frequently charge it? And how do you charge it usually? spells, herbs, scents, wipes? I am thinking using potted plants as anchors but won’t that hurt the plant though? I love my babies! D:
I recharge it once a week or every two weeks. I have a reminder set up in my calendar on my phone. Being persistent keeps it from breaking down too far and needing a lot of energy to rebuild.
I am not a tool-heavy practitioner. So, I rely heavily on my own visualization and sensation skills. With that said, you could definitely charge some Clorox wipes and literally wipe down the door frame with the intent to create the protective barrier, and visualize it/sense it sealing.
Plants — I’ve had a sad experience with negative energy and plants. Plants are sensitive. I have a giant spider plant and a pothos vine plant. When I moved into my new office, I didn’t have time to cleanse the space (the previous occupant was a shitbag) and it nearly killed my pothos. It still hasn’t really recovered. My spider plant is flourishing though. So, I think it depends on the sturdiness and correspondence of the plant.
