As expectant parents, we go to great lengths to prepare for our babies arrival. We decorate their nurseries with cute and functional furniture, stock up on diapers and wipes, and read all the parenting books we can find.
However, there’s one aspect of baby preparation that often gets overlooked – spiritual cleansing.
Did you know that babies are highly sensitive to energy? They can easily pick up on negative vibes from their surroundings that affect their mood, health, sleep, and overall well-being.
That’s why it’s crucial to spiritually cleanse your baby’s nursery before they arrive (or even after) to create a peaceful and positive environment for them.
You can spiritually cleanse your baby’s nursery in 7 easy steps using simple items you probably already have at home.
Step 1: Declutter Your Baby’s Nursery
The first step in spiritual cleansing your baby’s nursery is to declutter. Clutter can create stagnant energy and make it harder to maintain a clean and organized space.
Start by going through your baby’s clothes, toys, and other items and deciding what to keep, donate, recycle, or throw away. Only keep items that bring you joy and serve a practical purpose.
Step 2: Clean Your Baby’s Nursery
The second step is to clean your baby’s nursery thoroughly. Use natural and safe cleaning products to avoid harsh chemicals that can harm your baby’s sensitive skin and respiratory system.
Focus on areas that accumulate dust, such as window sills, baseboards, and fan blades. Don’t forget to wipe down all surfaces, including the inside of drawers and closets.
Step 3: Smudge Your Baby’s Nursery
To smudge your baby’s nursery, light the herbs or incense and allow the smoke to permeate the room, paying attention to corners, closets, and doorways.
The smoke from smudging can clear away negative energy and purify the air.
(And so we’re clear here– this isn’t something we are suggesting someone pregnant do, or someone do around babies. Enlist the assistance of a friend.)
Step 4: Use Crystals in Your Baby’s Nursery
Crystals are beautiful and powerful tools for spiritual cleansing. They can help balance and align the energy in a space and promote healing and positive vibes.
Rose quartz, amethyst, and clear quartz are popular crystals for babies’ nurseries. Place them strategically around the room, such as on a shelf, in a window, or near the crib.
Remember to cleanse and charge your crystals regularly.
Step 5: Play Music or Sounds in Your Baby’s Nursery
Music and sounds can have a profound impact on babies’ energy. They can soothe, comfort, and stimulate their senses. Choose music or calming and gentle sounds, such as lullabies, nature sounds, or white noise.
Consider playing music during feeding or nap times to create a relaxing and nurturing atmosphere for your baby.
Step 6: Add Plants or Flowers in Your Baby’s Nursery
Plants and flowers can bring life and beauty to your baby’s nursery. They can also help purify the air and promote positive energy.
Choose plants that are safe for babies and require minimal maintenance, such as spider plants, rubber plants, and peace lilies.
Place them in pots or hanging baskets, and don’t forget to water and care for them regularly.
Step 7: Set an Intention for Your Baby’s Nursery
Setting an intention is a powerful way to infuse your baby’s nursery with positive energy and meaning. An intention is a statement of what you want to create or attract in your life. It can be as simple or elaborate as you like, but it should reflect your values and hopes for your baby. Write your intention down, and place it somewhere visible in your baby’s nursery, such as on a wall or shelf.
You can also say your intention out loud, visualize it, or meditate on it regularly.
Some examples of intentions for your baby’s nursery include “This is a safe and loving space for my baby to grow and thrive,” “My baby is surrounded by positive energy and joy,” or “My baby is healthy and happy.”
Spiritual cleansing in your baby’s nursery can help create a peaceful and positive environment for your little one.
As you prepare for your baby’s arrival, take the time to connect with your own inner wisdom and intuition. Trust that you have everything you need to be a loving and nurturing parent, and that your baby will thrive in the space you create for them.
Enjoy this special time of preparation, and welcome your little bundle of joy into a beautiful and energetically charged space!
