What is space clearing?
People talk about “clearing the air”, often after a disagreement. The truth is that doing something to actually clear the air, the atmosphere, in a room or the whole building can make a big difference.
The objective is to make the place feel better, lighter, more pleasant to be in.
Many years ago, I paid for a full space clearing for my home from one of Karen Kingston’s people (author of Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui). This was very interesting. It involved lots of flowers, candles, and bells. It was very expensive too!
I had to clean and tidy the house thoroughly first and buy flowers and candles.
The practitioner spent time in each room cleansing it. Then she placed a candle and flowers in the centre of the floor, before moving on to the next room.
Towards the end of the session we put my wishes for the future into a Balinese Bell and rang it around the house.
Then I had to go out for a couple of hours.
She also tested in each room for electro magnetic fields, underwater water etc. and advised me to change a few things about the decor.
The house did feel lovely afterwards and it was therapeutic for me to have it done for me after my alcoholic ex-husband had moved out. It felt like a true fresh start.
The biggest thing I realised though was how much the thoughts and words of the house occupants get stored in the fabric of the house.
If we could all be positive happy bunnies all the time, once the space has been cleared then that would be a good start to helping it to stay that way.
However, life happens and most of us have bad days, cross words and other events that create turmoil. Therefore, clearing the space regularly yourself is a good habit to get into.
Things you can do yourself
It might be obvious but a lot of clutter really drags us down. Part of us is trying to keep track of each item so just imagine how much energy that takes.
Karen Kingston’s book (mentioned above) ‘Clear your clutter with Feng Shui’ is superb. Only a little book but she talks about the effect that clutter in each room has on us. That is great motivation to sort it out!
Sacred Space sprays
These are superb. Extremely effective and you can use almost anywhere.
I use these Sacred Space Sprays a LOT and really heartily recommend them.
Alaskan Essence Space Clearing Sprays. They work instantly and smell delightful.
I first found discovered their effectiveness at
Spray them in this order –
- “Calling All Angels”
Purification ‘Space Clearing’ Spray is the perfect gift for therapists, real estate agents, interior designers and travellers, anyone who works with spaces or people. Purification clears out unwanted and stagnant energies from homes, offices, therapy spaces and hotel rooms.
Calling all Angels Spray is perfect for children and anyone in need of divine love. It invokes the love, guidance and protection of the angelic realm and brings a soft, loving and serene energy into your heart and space. Children love to use this spray before going to sleep!
Lighten Up ‘Energy Flow’ spray brings light and uplifting energy to those who feel sadness, loneliness or anxiety during the holidays. Especially helpful during the long winter months.
The Guardian Spray helps you create a powerful force field of protection in your aura and environment.
I would not be without them now.
Alaskan Essences also produce a Sweetgrass Hydrosol which is also for space clearing – similar to sage smudging in action. They also sell the space clearing combinations in dropper form so you can put drops around the building instead. (The drops can also be taken in water to clear your own energy field if required.)
I do sell these, ask if you are interested.
Shamanic traditions burn particular materials to ‘smudge’ the people and the
A Peruvian shaman will often use Paulo Santo wood as a powerful way to shift heavy energies.
Burning such things can be a bit tricky and potentially dangerous so do take care with this, and be aware of fire detectors too!
Plants and flowers
Natural things can uplift us.
Plants give out oxygen during the day so can freshen the atmosphere. Some plants are especially good for us, for example Peace Lillies which also apparently absorb low energies.
Fresh cut flowers, if you like them, can delight you with their lovely colours and smells too. Make sure you remove them when they are over though.
Crystals are a big topic on their own – each crystal has different qualities it can add to the room it is in.
It is important to cleanse the crystals when you get them and regularly afterwards to keep their qualities good.
Essential oils can be used in a diffuser . Each has unique qualities and some are also antibacterial.
There are some great books about them. I particularly like Valerie Ann Worwood’s ‘Fragrant Pharmacy’.
Some essential oils specialists provide blends of oils for specific purposes, such as allowing you to focus, relaxation, sleep etc.
Sound can be a great help – Singing Bowls and
I often play a recording by Jose Luis Herrera of Ceremonial Ikaros (haunting vocal music, channelled directly from spirit in Peru) to prepare healing spaces.
Playing uplifting music can be enough to lift the energy of the room.
Lively music that makes you feel happy can be enough at home. I have a playlist
It is possible to obtain audio files or CDs seem completely silent yet are putting out healing resonances into the atmosphere. I sell one type of those which puts bio-resonances into the atmosphere silently. Great for offices!
Constant space clearing
If you have a home or business premises with ‘problems’ that aren’t clearing with the simpler ideas above then these will probably be required.
Geopathic Devices that plug into the mains and clear your environment – the bigger one will do an entire house or any area up to 400 square metres. There is a smaller, travel, device that will do a room. I’ve put a separate post on to describe these two.
What if none of this works?
Well I would be surprised if these ideas don’t make a significant difference.
If there still seems to be something that is not clearing then consider calling on a professional to take a look and offer advice. I do provide space clearing in various ways as part of my services, details at the bottom of the page.
Carol’s space clearing services:
Space clearing of the clients’ home, vehicles and workspace is often included at a gentle level during remote e-Lybra9 bio-resonance e-Pendant top up sessions.
The e-Lybra9 can also remotely target the specific home/designated area as a separate session.
My extensive shamanic training gave me various methods to clear homes and businesses, working from a layout plan remotely.
Various advanced shamanic divination techniques may be used to clear stuck situations may prove useful – one example is a house that was for sale but never got a second viewing or feedback. Within a month of this technique being performed the house was sold and the occupants had found a new house of their dreams!
