Sage is wonderful to cleanse the house of negative things. And gets rid of the spirits you don't want there. Then you can use sea salt and/or quartz crystals on the window sills and any other openings, doors too. This should make your place "feel" lighter and more pleasant for you. Feel free to mail me. I love helping. Blessed Be...
