always neglected. This Diwali, clean all those long forgotten corners that you may
have stuffed with broken, unused items. Bring freshness and positive energy in your

layer of paint on those dusty windows and rusty gates.

negative energies in any space. So include rock sea salt in your cleaning regime.
You can either make a salt water solution and spray it in the corners, or put small
amount of salts overnight in a glass bowl (only on Saturdays) in those spaces where
you feel that energy isn’t right! However do not forget the bowls of salt next day as
the salt absorbs the negativity from the atmosphere and stores in itself. You must
dispose of it properly by either flushing it in water or burying it in earth.


3. After all the cleaning is done, do not forget to light the entire space. There is a
