Question...with some rambling mixed in. (Pagans, Witches, Wiccans)

I found Paganism when I was 14.  I am not knew to the myriad of beliefs but I have actually never done any casting or working with herbs/candles for a specific intent....though I do have some base knowledge.  I've never done it out of fear....fear of screwing up royally.


We are getting a new house.  It is a rental but it is something I could see us buying down the road.  It's big, backed by a small amount of woods and when I am there I feel peaceful and at home.  I have been "pining" over this house for a year.  We are in the process of scrubbing down the house.  Before we move in even a stitch of furniture I want to do a cleansing.

I've heard about burying crystal quartz at the corners of the house, salt in the windows and at the door frame, and doing a smudging but I wanted to know if there is anything else I should be doing.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Okay, so you know me and you know I don't know anything about this stuff.  I honestly just googled.  I know it's not perfect, but I'll list some sites...

http://www.paganlibrary.com/rituals_spells/index.php  If you look on this one, there's a bunch of links, it would be under House Cleaning and there's a House Blessing too.

Like I said, I don't know anything about it, but I thought I'd at least try to help since no one else answered.  I hope you find something.

Oh, and I saw the inside pictures, I LOVE it!!!

I like sage and cedar for cleansing. I get a smudge stick and take it room by room, then open all the windows and doors to allow the negative energy to drift away on the wind (I usually do this at night, not sure why). You can also "sweep" away anything negative with a besom (I've done this once or twice around my alter and whatnot before rituals). Haven't tried the crystals, but I used to use salt like crazy when I was still in my parent's house because it's the only thing like that I could use. Don't worry about screwing anything up. Start with some basics as far as casting goes. Something simple, like finding a lost object or pleasant dreams. Oh, and something you could do before moving in (just thought about this) is to ask the god(dess), elementals, etc. (any of them, all of them, whatever you like) to bless your home with postive energy and protection or something like that. If you're interested, I have a group here on CM for new Pagans (not saying you're new, it's just kind of for information and where to start kinds of things).
