The Forgotten Healing Art of Space Clearing
To live a life of grace and abundance, it is vital to have a good flow of clear, vibrant energy in your body, in your home and at your place of work. So, what do I mean by ‘energy’?
Every day we react subconsciously to our own thoughts and feelings, but we also respond and react to the energies around us in our environment. The fact is that many people have tuned out this level of awareness, so they don’t even realise they are being affected!
Have you thought about the energies – particularly “thought forms” – that are affecting you in your home, or at work? Maybe you feel good when you enter your home or place of work – but maybe you don’t? If so, that’s a clue…
Everything retains a memory in its field, so that includes our homes and places of work.
“Thoughts, then, are structured vibration – some fleeting and others that are recorded and become permanent… Some thoughts are so strong that they colour the entire environment in which they occurred. Stated more simply, there are thought fields in the home, the office, and in organizations and groups, by virtue of the thought vibrations of those who created these institutions and those who live there.” Dr Valerie Hunt
Space Clearing: a specialised branch of Feng Shui
Most people think of cleansing their space by doing some sort of sacred ritual like ‘burning sage‘ for example, which is a great way to start!
However, the forgotten healing art of “space clearing” is actually a specialised branch of Feng Shui that works at even deeper levels by cleansing and purifying the energy of a building, transforming stagnant energy into clear, vibrant, flowing energy. A skilled intuitive can sense the unseen by ‘tuning in’, and this process can be done ‘remotely’ by those with the correct psychic awareness.
Not only may you be subject to geopathic stresses, negative energy radiations, and electrical discharges, but you are also creating a bubble of psychic energy with every thought, word and accompanying emotion.
Every thought, word and action has an energy and can lodge itself in the very fabric of your place of work, or home. Space clearing will remove the negative energies and an immediate change in the atmosphere will usually be felt.
In our overly materialistic society, many people struggle with the ‘non visible’ energies that impact them. Yet more and more people resonate with the truth that their problems in the “real world” have their roots in an invisible field of energy… this goes beyond mere superstition, or placebo…
Once you understand that everything is affected by everything else in this quantum soup of energy, your life will make much better sense. Indeed, many are choosing to make clearing part of their lives so that their personal energies and their homes and homes are both energetically, as well as physically, clean and clear.
Often changing the energy of a space will result in a desire to make physical changes to reflect the new energy coming in.
Our lives mirror our environment and our homes mirror who we are.
More often than not, whenever there is a definite shift in consciousness, we feel compelled to change one or more aspects of our outer lives to reflect our new state of being. If you have ever felt compelled to carry out a spring clean of your living space, you will remember how free and light you felt afterwards! Getting rid of ‘old junk’ and its accompanying ‘heavy energy’ matters!
If your home or work space is energetically cluttered, this might be a reflection of your own internal state and/or be affecting you on deeper levels without you realising. You may have symptoms such as tiredness, depression, loss of appetite, and feeling moody or withdrawn without really knowing why…
Concrete, bricks, stone and wood have the capacity over time to absorb stagnant energy and because of their yang nature, the energy takes longer to discharge.
One of the major factors dealt with in Feng Shui is known as “predecessor energy”. This is the “vibration” left behind by the previous owner – a reflection of their health, their moods and their chi or ki!
Today, new owners will immediately have a “house warming party” when they move into their new home… subconsciously, they feel that the ‘old energy’ does not belong to them!
We have all experienced walking into a room where two people have just been engaged in an argument where we could literally feel the dark, heavy atmosphere present in the room. At the other end of the scale, most of us have walked into a room where children were at play and sensed it as a feeling of lightness and laughter.
Space clearing before moving into a new home was considered a vital first step in traditional cultures and is still practised in some form today throughout the world but the ancient art of working directly with unseen energies has been largely forgotten.
Since energy is always changing, it is important to remember that this is reflected within our space.
Here are some key examples of when you might consider space clearing:
- When you move into a new home to clear out the energy of the previous occupants.
- After or during physical or psychological illness. If you or a family member have been ill the vibration of the home will be affected.
- After big life changes. Bereavements, separations, divorce or a change in job are major stress factors in our lives.
- Clearing conflict in the home. If you have had any violent arguments or quarrels within the home, these can leave a tangible mark. If you have been burgled or robbed this can leave a very negative, tangible feeling in the home.
- Making a fresh start in life. This can set the tone for new enterprises, new relationships and a whole new beginning that is not tied to the past.
- Enhancing your inner development. Clear, free-flowing energy may draw you to a new, higher level of expression.
Of course, you need to make sure you are not duped, and find a reputable intuitive to do the work – it’s not always easy in this world but asking the right questions will help! And trust your gut!
On the other hand, if you remain overly sceptical, and keep blocking your intuitive mind, then you will never find someone to help you, no matter how good they are. You will just keep asking questions and the person will rightly tell you to go away! Nobody likes to have their time wasted by a mind that is constantly sitting on the fence!
