The object most touched in the house is the doorknob. While the door separates one space from another, it’s the doorknob that allows us to enter. The doorknob is the tool we use to change our location so it represents a tool of change. Because the doorknob gets so much use and is touched by so many there can be a lot of lingering energy on a single doorknob. If you are going through a time of difficult change, a time when you wish you could change, or a time where you wish the changes could be finished so you could be comfortable again here are some tips.
Doorknobs as tools of change
The doorknob on the door leading outside probably gets the most use. You touch it when you’re happy, you touch it when you’re sad, you touch it when you’re angry or disgusted or disappointed. And so does everyone else in the house. Mix a half a cup of water with a half a cup of vinegar and a half a teaspoon of sea salt and stir until the water is cloudy. Then take a rag and clean the doorknob. This will remove any negative energy that is attached to this “tool of change”.
Repair any doorknobs that are not working. Change is difficult enough without having good tools at your disposal. The most important doorknobs to repair are the ones leading outside, followed by doorknobs to personal areas such as bedrooms, and then finally dealing with broken doorknobs on storage rooms or closets. When the doorknob is being repaired (even if it’s repaired by someone else) for that space of time you’re actually sitting between the two worlds, the old world that you did live in and the new worlds that you’re going into. So as the doorknob’s being repaired be mindful of what else is going on in your life. The universe may send you messages at this time.
Use a doorknob as a reminder. Choose a doorknob that you use a lot. Hang a ribbon or a charm from the doorknob to represent what you wish to have in your life. If you wish more abundance in your life you could hang coins from the doorknob (either Chinese coins strung on a ribbon or you could glue American coins to the ribbon). If you want to attract love you could hang a little heart charm from the doorknob. Each time you touch that doorknob you say to yourself “I welcome this new energy into my life”. After a few weeks the charm can be moved to a new doorknob to stimulate the energy.
