Pagan/Wiccan Religion/House cleansing gone wrong


Hi, I hope you may be able to help!  I have been cleansing and blessing my home for the past 13 years very successfully with wonderful results.  Recently as soon as the white sage extinguishes something negative immediately occurs.  The  first incident was our neighbour hit into our parked car and became very aggressive and angry with us for no reason, as we were in the house and the car was safely parked. The second time, a thief jumped into our yard trying to escape with six police officers in tow.  Third time,  I became very tired and suffered with a headache all day/night and; now it's the fourth occasion, my whole family including myself are now suffering with headaches, stomach problems and vomiting. I have now stopped but since last month we have been experiencing one health problem after another.  Have you heard of this type of problems to occur and why it might be happening now or what I may be doing wrong.  I have not changed the method of house cleansing, blessings and protection I followed that worked so well.  In anticipation of an answer with kind regards and blessings.

Hello Vanessa,

I have experienced and helped individuals in a similar dilemma. As you know there is a balance in everything magical. In this case you have built up quite a bit of cleansing energy with Sage. Over the last 13 years, like humans and antibiotics certain energies have been slowly growing immune to the white sage.

So, first, you are doing nothing wrong. On the magical planes I think that a resistance to the magic of the sage has occurred. Here are some suggestions that may be of assistance.

1. Obtain some Sweet Grass to replace the Sage
2. Obtain some Lavender, ( live plants are best if possible )
3. Burn the Sweet Grass and say the blessing as you have been doing
4. PLANT some Lavender at the doorway of your house and put some around the Windows
5. Establish a Mirror Shield around your family and home. If you wish assistance with this one please contact me privately here or at

Bright Blessing,

I am a full Professor at Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary and the Sr. Pastor of the Wite Rayvn Metaphysical Church ATC,a Gardnarian 3rd Degree and am also ordained through the International Metaphysical Ministry. I have previously been ordained as an Orthodox Rabbi, and Christian Minister. I am a Registered Spiritual Counselor, Metaphysical Practitioner and have been a Licensed Spiritual Coach, (2007) and a Reiki Master since 1995. I am the High Priest of the Family Tradition mentioned above. As I learned each technique, I realized the benefits and the shortcomings of each one. As I continued to search, study, learn, and incorporate these into my own growth I became a more balanced, happy, satisfied person, for myself. As I become more satisfied with myself, I attracted more balanced, happy, satisfied people into my own life. I realized that these techniques combined together, can be used by ANYONE. Therefore. I became a Spiritual Coach to be able to share this with anyone who wanted to - Be ALL that they ALREADY Are. I am a published author, and have many articles on alternative healing techniques, including Reiki,meditations, shamanic practices, training courses, and articles on following your own life and spiritual path. I have earned a Doctorate of Metaphysical Science (DMsc) from the University of Sedona.
