Dear Ruby

M y hus­band passed away last year and although the past 12 months have been ex­tremely tough, I’m ready to start let­ting go and mov­ing on. The first step for me is sell­ing our home, which is full of beau­ti­ful but now painful mem­o­ries. How­ever, since putting it on the mar­ket I’ve not had any in­ter­est from buy­ers. Could my strug­gle to sell be down to my own emo­tional state? And if so, what can I do about it?

Dear Maryanne

Your emo­tions, or rather your resid­ual en­ergy, could def­i­nitely be what is stop­ping your house from sell­ing. The warm, com­fort­ing feel­ing of be­ing ‘home’ (which is what most peo­ple look for when house-buy­ing) is not so much about the build­ing but the en­ergy put into it. De­spite the fact that you may have en­joyed years of pos­i­tive en­ergy in your house, a short stint of po­tent neg­a­tive en­ergy (in­tense grief be­ing the per­fect ex­am­ple) is enough to dras­ti­cally shift the feel­ing within those four walls. This geo-psy­chic stress is of­ten very ap­par­ent and off-putting for buy­ers. For­tu­nately, neg­a­tive en­er­gies can usu­ally be cleansed through the rit­ual and rather pleas­ant use of aro­mather­apy.


Es­sen­tial oils are not only won­der­fully ef­fec­tive for heal­ing your body and mind, but your home too. Try dif­fus­ing this pu­ri­fy­ing smudge blend every day (par­tic­u­larly dur­ing view­ings) to ban­ish neg­a­tive en­er­gies:

3 drops frank­in­cense

3 drops rose

2 drops ju­niper

2 drops lemon

2 drops white sage

If you don’t have a dif­fuser, make a room spray in­stead! Just mix your oil blend in 200ml dis­tilled wa­ter that has been charged in moon­light. Add a pinch of sea salt and a black tour­ma­line crys­tal for ex­tra cleans­ing power. De­cant into a spritz­ing bot­tle and spray lib­er­ally about your home.

Soo the your soul

As with ev­ery­thing, the best way to re­solve an is­sue is to get to the root cause. In this case, that’s your own emo­tional tur­moil, so it’s a good idea to in­tro­duce some self-care prac­tices to help ease you into the process of let­ting go.

Some­thing as sim­ple as a daily bath can go a re­ally long way. Stud­ies have shown that be­ing sub­merged in warm wa­ter helps to switch the brain into a quiet, con­tem­pla­tive state which is es­sen­tial for griev­ing, re­mem­ber­ing and ac­cept­ing. Com­bine this with the ther­a­peu­tic ben­e­fits of es­sen­tial oils by us­ing an aro­mather­apy bath oil, such as the Peace blend by Beat­i­tude, to soothe your soul and pre­vent the trans­fer of neg­a­tive en­er­gies any fur­ther.
