Backflow Incense Burner
Homes and offices can retain the energy of the previous owners or occupants. Maybe things are not going well in your life and career. This could be due to stagnant negative energy, spirits or entities. Burning incense is used in Feng Shui to clear out this negativity.
Two common types of incense sticks used for a cleansing burn in Feng Shui are rosemary and sandalwood.
Cleansing a Space
- First, thoroughly clean the space. Get rid of all clutter then sweep, dust and mop the areas in which you want to do a cleansing burn. If the weather is permitting, open the windows to allow fresh air to flow into the room.
- Put your burning incense (in a holder of course) in the middle of each floor of your house if you want to cleanse the entire home. If you just want to do one room, place it in the middle of the room
Releasing Negative Energy, Welcoming Positive Energy
A good way to release the negative energy from your life is to recite prayers, affirmations, well wishes and positive thoughts while performing your cleansing burn. The same is said for negative thoughts. Releasing your negative thoughts by vocalizing them allows the release of the negative energy you are carrying, into the smoke, where it dissipates. Do the same for positive thoughts. By vocalizing our positive thoughts, positive energy is carried by the smoke and released into the universe.
Finally, you don’t have to do a cleansing only when you’re feeling down, ill or when your career isn’t going as planned. Cleansing is great for the times in your life when you are surrounded by positivity as well. This keeps the positive chi flowing in your space and around you.
Never leave a burning item alone in a room. Even an item that is only releasing smoke is hot enough to ignite a flammable substance or burn skin. Always use caution.
