“Having someone to love is family; having somewhere to go is home; having both is a blessing” – by Unknown
A home is a place that becomes central to our lives and family. It is a place to unwind and be a safe haven in tumultuous seas. It is a place where we can laugh, cry and let our guard down and be our true self. It is a place for family and friends to gather and create memories.
You may have purchased a new house or finished renovating and have hopes and dreams of what this may bring in your future. You may not like the feeling or energy of the house and would like to clear the house of the past. Whatever the reason, a house blessing can be a ceremony to announce this house is now your home as a sign of new beginnings, a fresh start or a cancellation of the past and moving forward.
You may choose to have a simple gathering of those who are important to you, a simple morning / afternoon tea or a house warming party. However you choose to have the ceremony you may like some official words to acknowledge moving forward or you may like a ritual. For example a tree planting to exemplify strength, life and future hopes. I would work with you to make this happen in a way that suits your nature and personality and takes into account the layout of the house.
