Moving house rituals

1

We are moving house and are in the middle of boxes and dust!!
I really can't wait to be done as I had forgotten how exhausting moving was... As I take (a very much deserved) break from it all, I decided to do my checklist of things to do when entering a new apartment.
I am quite superstitious and have always done some rituals in a new home, (yes I do feel a little like Phoebe Buffay from friends;)) 

Here are a few:

*What are your good luck/ Feng Shui rituals before entering a new home?

Make your own sage smudge stick and burn it throughout the house to clear negative energy
2

Do not bring broken items from your previous home
3

Place salt in each room of your house to absorb any negative energy
4

De- clutter all unnecessary items from your old house and keep it minimal 
5

Water is an important Feng Shui element for your house
6

Place Hematite crystals in your house for grounding the energy and protecting your new home
7

Sprinkle rice by your entrance door and sweep it outside asking the bad energy to leave with it
8

My greek evil eye

  4. Interesting rituals. It's an exhausting time but a great excuse to totally declutter and take only the things you need and love.

  5. I didn't know about these rituals but it's very interesting to read. We're planning to move later this year, currently in Korea but hoping to head to Dubai. I'll remember some of these for sure!

    Hope you've had a great weekend. Happy Monday! :)

  9. Moving is so much work. So I´m not the only one who runs around the house with burning sage to get rid of negative energy :)

  19. Great tips! Even though I am not superstitious, it got me thinking. If walls had ears, they would know all stories of all people that lived in a house...
    Thanks for the great input and sweet comment!

  20. Moving is the WORST! Hope it all starts to come together soon. It kind of makes the process easier for me to unpack and organize one room at a time. Good luck, my friend! x
