In this competitive home buying market, you need any advantage you can get. It also pays to make sure you not only get a home, but that you end up in the right home. This is where witchcraft can give you an edge.
The first thing you’ll want to do is to tune up your intuition and make it clear to your guides that you are opening yourself up to their messages. Last Fall the housing market was really hot and my husband and I were feeling a lot of pressure to put our house on the market. I consulted my tarot cards and they made it very clear that if I waited until March that the market would be even hotter and I would make substantially more money as a result. This turned out to be 100% true.
No one can predict when the peak of the market will be, but being able to do so can mean the difference of tens of thousands of dollars or more in your pocket, money that can though go towards your new home. It may seem crazy to some to leave the timing to my tarot cards, but in this case it paid off big for me.
Your intuition is also going to be crucial when you are in the buying phase. As you are doing walk-throughs, tune in psychically as much as possible. We saw a lot of houses that seemed like perfectly good houses, but there was a clear feeling of dread and unease when in the house. Pay attention to those messages. If a house makes you feel uneasy, stay clear even if logically everything is “right” about the house and you don’t have a logical reason to say “no”. You could be picking up on future disasters with that house that a home inspector would not be able to warn you about. Maybe there’s tons of deferred maintenance and shoddy DIY under the surface. Or maybe a tree is destined to fall onto the house during the next storm. Something is warning you and it’s best to heed it.
In Shintoism it is believed that homes have a spirit just like people do.
If you have any mediumistic abilities, try to commune directly to the spirit of the house. In some cases, this could be a literal ghost that dwells peacefully and surreptitiously within the home, or the spirit of the home itself. In Shintoism it is believed that homes have a spirit just like people do. Tuning into this spirit is often easier than trying to communicate with a human spirit. Especially if you approach the spirit of the home with a sense of respect and reverence. Homes want a good match, just like people do, so it helps to approach the house with a collaborative attitude.
One house we saw had been built in 1978 and was practically a time capsule. The home had been impeccably maintained and I actually liked the funky retro vibe. The house made it clear to me that it was happy as a 1970s home and was not looking to have any major renovations done. The problem was that my husband was only willing to buy the home if he could do some updating. Due to this, I decided we should pass on the home. Sure, we could have done the renovations anyways, but going against the spirit of the home would have left the home unhappy and created an adversarial relationship. I personally would have been weary of the misfortune that would invite.
Sometimes the spirit of a home will really like you and call out to you. When this happens, you will feel almost haunted by the home, obsessing about it until you can get an offer letter together. The house knows that you are the right buyer for it, and it will even keep other potential buyers away until you can be available. Maybe this is a home that needs work done to bring it back to life and it knows that you are the only person with the patience and vision to really make that happen. Although this can turn out great for the house, it might not be the best situation for you. I spent the last 8 years restoring a Victorian home in Boston. Although the home turned out great, it was a very stressful 8 years indeed.
Older homes are going to have more power than younger homes.
If you like a home, you can ask the spirit of the home to try to keep other bidders away so that your offer is accepted. The home has some ability to do this, but it really depends on how powerful the home is and also how sensitive the other prospective buyers are. Older homes are going to have more power than younger homes. If the house is new but the land is ancient, you could try appealing to the land itself, although the land may be angry if trees and whatnot were recently cleared off of it in order to build the house.
You may have more luck asking the home to try to influence the seller directly since the current homeowner should theoretically be more entuned with the house than any would-be buyers. When we received the multiple offers for our old house, I asked the house who it wanted us to pick. I took the process of choosing the new caretakers very seriously and the house was adamant on one particular couple. This turned out to be a very good choice. The house you are looking to buy could be convinced to do the same for you.
Once you have an offer accepted, your work is far from over! Experienced homebuyers know that so many things can go wrong from the time you have an offer in until you have the keys in hand. For this stage I found it helpful to appeal to the Kinfetch.
The person with the most will is able to bend the kinfetch to their cause.
When a contract is formed, a type of spirit is created that watches over the contract. We know from experience that often in contracts one person will benefit over the other. It’s not supposed to be that way, but somehow it happens anyways. The witchcraft explanation is that the person with the most will is able to bend the kinfetch to their cause. It is better for that person to be you. You can strengthen the kinfetch in your favor by making small offerings to it such as burning incense or burying lucky coins on the property.
When working with the kinfetch, I really focused on the contract being fair with no surprises and nobody getting screwed. I also focused on having a good house inspection. If you are selling your house while buying another, it’s important to realize that any attempts to con a buyer will only cause the kinfetch to transfer that same misfortune back onto you when you buy your next house. This is because if you are selling and buying at the same time, it’s as if you have one big contract going and it will be the same kinfetch for both. Any wish to “screw over the buyer” will include yourself since you are also “the buyer” in this case.
“My new house will be even better than I expected”
While you’re at home packing and waiting for your closing date, it can be nerve wracking. Am I doing the right thing? Is this the right house or did I rush into a decision? During this time it’s helpful to use some Law of Attraction to keep the positive energy up. During the 3 weeks until the move, I kept repeating to myself the mantra “My new house will be even better than I expected”. I visualized being happy in the space and being continuously pleasantly surprised by new things about the house and the new area I moved to. This visualization then became that exact reality.
I was very happy to have worked on the kinfetch for selling my old house too. The process went smoothly and the new owners are indeed the right people and I feel good about them living there and being good stewards to the house. When we moved apparently we left behind a box of a few items of childhood mementos. The new owners would have been well within their right to throw them away but instead they actually paid the expense to track us down and have them shipped back to us. I felt like some good karma had definitely paid off.
My overall advice for buying a home is to listen to your intuition at all times, but also to be sure to put out good positive and kind energy during the entire process. If it starts to feel like you’re never going to find the right house, that’s usually a good sign that you will find the perfect house not long after!
