Kia ora Cushla,

I have many karakia, but not on the internet, I will find the right one for you and send, also, in the interim, try getting a glass bowl and filling with water from outside, either rain water, or tap water, then flick it around the home, as you are flicking the water, think of positive, happy thoughts asking to keep your home safe, asking to bless your home, insure you flick the water everywhere, in the corner of your rooms, on the curtains, on the carpet.. you won't end up with a wet house as you're only flicking water off your finger tips. kia ora, I do this every Sunday and I also cover the outside corners of my home too. I even ensure I flick a bit over my teenage sons, to shake off all that teenage stuff that I'd prefer was kept at the gate.
Kia ora

Tena koe Cushla

I have had experience in these matters before and a karakia alone may not always be effective. There are many things that can cause these events and many factors like, religious background, personal belief system and cultural awareness, that can contribute to the effectiveness of your karakia.

There are other factors to be considered also such as;
1) How long has it been happening or was there a time that it did not happen and if so, what has changed since then?
3) What is the history of the home you live in and the land it is on?
4) Has someone new entered your household?
5) Has there been any significant change in your household since it began?

There is usually a reason or cause for things of this nature and it is a good idea to try and find out what those causes are and if possible rectify the situation. If you are unable to find the source, then use this karakia. If you have some one to support you with this, someone you love and that loves you, then ask them to be apart of it.

This Karakia is old and very powerful and will achieve the desired effect. It is good for starting anything new. However, you must then show gratitude by offering something back. Im not saying you should become an angel or you are the cause..no! you are the cure!..but like all things there is a price to pay and if you can not find the cause then you will need to pay the cost which can sometimes mean helping others or seeking further knowledge. You will know what to do. Dont worry! HAVE NO FEAR! ..Kia Kaha E hine!

E Io nui Io roa
Taakina mai Te Pure o Rangi o Nuku
Hei whaka-takawaenga
te huinga iti te huinga rahi
Taakina kia purea a hinengaro kia tau ko te Whakaaro-nui
Taakina kia purea a whatumanawa kia uu ki te Rongo-mau
Taakina kia purea kia whai-kiko nga kaupapa whakahihiri tangata
Kia Tuturu!
Ka whakamauaa kia tina! Tina!
Haumie e! Hui! Taiki e!!!

(Translation)
Io Almighty Io Eternal
Instill the purifying element of Heaven and of Earth
as a medium for the gathering of the few and of the many
Instill clarity of mind so that goodwill is the intent
Instill intergrity of heart so that peace is maintained
Instill purpose that outcomes pertaing to the wellbeing of mankind to be purposeful!
Make it tangible and practical!
Join! Gather! Unite!

If you have access to a fresh water spring, get some water in a glass bottle and sprinkle it around your house, in every room and around your boundary line repeating the karakia until you have done it all. May the Most High Loving Spirit protect and guide you and yours!

The Karakia must first be understood by you so that the thought process behind it in you is held and the vibrations of the karakia with the intensity of your thought and understanding will commit to the reason of your karakia.

Sometimes a simple quiet prayer said from the heart can be the most effective way 🙂 I say simple prayers and I always get a calming feeling. Always say them for protection.

Kia Ora Cushla,

The following karakia - you may find helpful, especially if you take heed of what Matahuru offers.

Me mau mai ki te Pirihi he wai, i roto i te ipu tika, ka mea ai te Pirihi.
[When water is to be sanctified, the priest shall say]

E te Atua Kaha rawa, ora tonu,
Almighty and everliving God
i whakatapua e koe te wai
in baptism you give water a holy use to wash away sin:
hei hakarameta mo te horoi i te hara.
Sanctify this water
tenei matou te inoi atu nei ki a koe.
as a sign of cleansing from all the powers of evil;
he nui nei hoki tou aroha, kia whakatapua tenei wai
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
i runga i te Ingoa o te Matua,
who triumphed over evil on the cross,
o te Tama, o te Wairua Tapu.
and now lives and reigns with you for ever.
AMINE
AMEN

Kia Ora Ano Cushla,

Mehemeamko tikanga a te iwi me ruirui te whare ki te wai, me whakatapu te wai i te tuatahi i mua atu i te ruiruinga. Hei konei ka haere te Pirihi ki te wahi i roto, i waho ranei o te whare ka rui haere i te wai i te tuatahi i mua atu i te ruiruinga.

If water is to be used the priest shall visit various places, inside and outside the house, and sprinkle water, saying :]

Ka ruirui e tatou tenei wahi,
hei horoi atu i nga mea poke,
a te rewera a te tangata ranei,
i runga i te Ingoa o te Matua,
o te Tama, o te Wairua Tapu.
AMINE.

We sprinkle this place,
to wash away the effects of evil,
whether of people, or of spiritual powers,
in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
AMEN

Naku Noa na Retimana

kia ora Cushla
i don't need any karakia's to get rid of any unwanted kehua's hangin around. I do what my old man always did. I swear at them and tell them to bugger off. 100% fool proof, 🙂

Kia ora retimana, in regards to your karakia, that is one which we use in my church, and unless cushla is a priest it is not right for her to sanctify the water.....Ma nga pirihi anake tera karakia.

And i think you will find your translation is wrong as well....
