People today are buying more used items than ever before, 'shabby chic' is the old NEW, but antiques have always been loved by many. However, not everyone who purchases used furniture/old windows and other objects think about the energies around or within the object.
"You often hear someone discuss the fact that they can "feel" energy. Sometimes, a very sensitive person may become uncomfortable in an antique store, sensing the various energy signatures [vibrations] coming from everything from the silverware to the furniture. Perhaps what they are feeling is predecessor energy. This is the energy that has been imbedded in an item that was owned by another person. Some people love how old antique furniture feels, others find it quite uncomfortable.
Other people can become exceptionally uncomfortable in homes were someone passed away, there was fighting as a precursor to a divorce or physical, mental, emotional or spiritual abuse took place over a long period of time. Those sensitive people probably will not be able to purchase a house with this negative energy unless they cleanse the home to clear that negative energy and "heal" the house. Other people will not specifically feel it, but will find themselves affected by this powerful predecessor energy. For example, someone might buy a piece of furniture (the price was right!) from someone who lost everything they owned because they went bankrupt. They may or may not ever notice that from that day forward, they have increasing difficulties financially. They probably would not think to ‘wash’ the furniture/window/desk/or chair, or energetically cleanse it in any way."
I have taken the time to cleanse each window with the burning of my home grown sage, rosemary and lavendar cleansing bundles (read about this process in my Blog) not once but twice, once before bringing them into my home and again before I ship them to your home. Any possible negative energy has been released and replaced with positive energy to bring peace and happiness into the home, office or event where the window is displayed so everyone can enjoy it.
"The smell of burning sage can increase relaxation and aid in deeper meditation. Physical and Emotional Advantages
Burning sage is useful in cleansing oneself from psychic and emotional trauma. Much like clearing a space, the smoke from sage can be fanned around your body with the intent to remove emotional blocks in the energy field.
Removal of Unwanted Spirits
Sage can be burned in your home to cleanse it of a haunting or unwanted spirit activity.
Sage produces a calming, yet stimulating tea which contains powerful antioxidants. Sage has aromatic, antiseptic, antibacterial and antispasmotic properties that contribute to its effective treatment of a variety of maladies. One of the most prevalent uses of sage tea, due to its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, is for inflammations of the mouth, throat and tonsils, as well as gingivitis. Further down the digestive tract, sage tea aids in digestion as it stimulates upper digestive secretions as well as intestinal mobility, bile flow and pancreatic functions. Sage tea is used to combat liver and kidney issues. Consumed as an iced tea, sage acts as an astringent, so it is useful in controlling diarrhea. Hot tea has a diuretic effect and aids in the expulsion of toxins from the body. Sage tea is also applied topically as a rinse or gargled for inflammations.
Preparation of Tea
Pour approximately 1 pt. of boiling water over 1 oz. of dried sage leaves."

"This native of Europe is often used for invitation of the spirits. The name may be derived from the Latin lavare (to wash) or livendula (meaning bluish). In ancient times lavender was an important herb used in mummification. There is a legend that the clothing of baby Jesus was laid upon a lavender bush and acquired the fragrance. Some Christians still regard the scent of lavender as a safeguard against evil.
Lavender burning promotes calming and is said to attracts love. Lavender is well known in aromatherapy practice, as a calming, soothing, balancing aroma. Lavender transforms energy, brings change, wisdom and healing. Lavender is also great for a room where you need a good nights sleep: place the lavender pillow under your pillow at night and enjoy the heavenly scent. It will transport you off into dreamland. For extra strong scent, first place the pillow in the microwave for a couple of minutes. The lavender pillow can also be used to scent your dresser drawers.
Soaking 2 tablespoons of dried lavender in a jug of hot water makes lavender tea. Drunk as a tea is a natural treatment for anxiety and headaches. It also soothes stomach upsets and flatulence, and cold lavender tea can be used as a mouthwash. The tea can also be used as a compress by soaking strips of bandage in the hot liquid and laid on the bruise or wound. The heat and the antiseptic qualities of the lavender combine to treat the wound. Warm lavender compress placed on the chest can help congestion, or breathing the lavender steam helps breathing."
