Spring cleaning your home is a tradition that stretches back eons in some cultures, and it might be one you uphold in your own house.

But there’s more to a seasonal deep clean than merely removing dust and grime – it awesomely alters the ambience to make the internal environment feel lighter, more positive and peaceful.

So by investing more psychic energy into springtime domestic engineering, it might become a cathartic experience that opens entirely new dimensions in your life.

With that in mind, here are five household hacks for a spiritual spring clean.

1) Bobo broom

The Bobo Ashanti are a sect (or Mansion) of Jamaica’s indigenous Rastafari religion and are familiar to suburban Jamaicans in places like Kingston because they sell hand-made household brooms door-to-door.

But this video explains that a Bobo broom has spiritual powers – so even if you can’t get your hands on one, imagine you’re casting out corruption while you dispense with dirt with your own brush.

2) Lucky horseshoe

Nailing a horseshoe to your door is supposed to bring good luck and protection, so it might be worth incorporating this old school belief into your spring cleaning plans.

Forged from iron and fire, this symbol of strength, skill and surefootedness should be hung with the open ends facing downwards, so that good fortune flows down onto all who pass under it.

You can buy horseshoes from blacksmiths or garden centres, but one which is found by chance is supposedly supercharged with symbolic energy.

3) Door colour

Changing the colour of your front door might align the energies of your home so that everyone inside it is full of life-affirming energy.

For instance, this front door Feng Shui guide from The Spruce suggests that blue or purple doors might boost productivity, while green and brown harness harmony.

Whatever you choose, it’s a reasonably inexpensive way to recharge your household aura.

4) Open doors and windows

Another tradition in Caribbean cultures is to ‘let God walk through the house’ for a few hours following a robust cleaning session.

The idea is that by opening your doors and windows and waiting outside, whichever higher power you identify with most will make their way through your home while they bless every nook and cranny.

Be sure to stay close to the homestead if you’re trying this hack – otherwise it’s an open invitation to undesirables like burglars.

5) Tough mats

When you and your family wander through the outside world, all sorts of unmentionable muck can cling to the soles of your feet.

But spiritual detritus might be sticking there too – some Christian denominations believe this is one of the symbolic reasons early followers of Jesus washed each other’s toes.

So a mat might be an investment in your psychic health as well as a hygiene product — to find an appropriate model, check out this doormat resource from manufacturer Kleen-Tex.

Follow these five hacks and you’ll feel terrific inside and out, all year round.
