You must not live in a house before blessing it and dedicating it, for instance, to one of the seventy-two Spirits of Nature. It is possible to learn the names, attributes and virtues of these Spirits and to invoke their assistance for all kinds of good work. They are always close by and they ask nothing better than to be useful, for God created them to help the servants of light. It can be extremely useful to know these things.

There have been any number of cases of disasters brought on by objects that no one had thought to bless or consecrate. When certain objects that were once in the possession of malefactors and evil men were sold and came into the hands of other people, they often caused an accident or other misfortune. Sold again, they again brought misfortune on their new owners, and so on, until, eventually, they were destroyed.

Every room has an imprint on the etheric plane of all that happened
For, don’t forget, everything that happens, whether on this earth or in other regions of the universe, is reflected and absorbed by the objects in the vicinity. It is important to know this.

I have often spoken to you about it: everything you do in every room of your house leaves an imprint, an image, a recording, an indestructible memory on the etheric plane, which remains on the walls, the furniture and all the objects in the room. A medium, someone who is sensitive to these things, could tell you exactly what had happened in that room.

Rocks and mountains bear an indelible record all of human history
God has conceived creation in such a way that the earth—particularly mountains and rocks—bears the record of human history from the very earliest times, billions of years ago. This is something which human beings will, one day, learn to decipher; they will learn to get all their knowledge from nature, for the minerals of the world are one immense library, the greatest archives in existence, and it is they that will reveal the past history of man.

Every word, every thought or gesture, every sentiment, either good or bad, is reflected and leaves traces of its passing on the surrounding objects. And these traces are virtually indelible; they are hidden deep beneath other traces which are constantly being laid on top of them, but they are still there and it is possible to retrieve them.

Initiates can recount the different periods through which mankind has passed
It is these traces that constitute what is known as the Akashic Records and they can be studied by those who are interested and capable of doing so. Many Initiates in the past have studied the history of humanity as it is recorded in these Archives: they have gone into the whole thing in great detail and have transmitted much of what they discovered to us.

This is how we have learned about all the different periods through which mankind has passed, how often and by what means it has perished, the degree of technical civilization and spiritual evolution that human beings of these different periods had reached, and so on. Cabbalists say that these archives are located in the Sephirah Daath: the memory of the universe.

Ask Heaven to send entities to rid your possessions of negative influences
The essential thing to remember is this: you must be conscious of the objects that you possess or use. The first thing to do when you buy or receive something is to ask the Invisible World to purify and exorcise it, in case persons or events have left discordant traces on it which could have a negative effect on you.

Begin, therefore, by asking Heaven to send you entities that know how to rid the object or place of all negative particles or influences. Secondly, invite some spirits or entities of light to dwell in it—if it is a house or land—or to impregnate it with good vibrations so that it will have a beneficial influence on you. If you do this for everything, absolutely everything, even the clothes you buy and wear, you will see how enormously you will be helped, encouraged and strengthened. Your life will take on new meaning and you will bless Heaven for this new light.
