Energy got you down? Clean it Up!

If you are not experiencing delightful days, happy relationships perhaps you need to do a little space clearing.  These tips are able to be done by anyone to lighten up the energy of your home.

You already feel energy.  Some places just ‘feel’ right, others have lingering energy from past arguments, illnesses and even deaths.  Anytime you choose one chair or room or store over another, you are responding to energy and placement.

It’s All Energy

Feng Shui teaches us how to understand the energy of our homes and its effect on our lives.  A Space and Energy Clearing is a necessary part of a clean and healthy home or office and often a part of everyday life to ‘clear the air’.   Without it, it’s like living in a pile of other’s dirty laundry.   Like going into a smoky bar, that energy influences you, lingers on you and colors your energy.

As we move throughout spaces, our thoughts, words, and actions become imprinted with in the energy of the space.  Popular ghost hunting and psychic phenomenon shows elaborat on the fact that we can feel the remnants of conversations and people who have been there.

Even after a thorough cleaning with natural products, the energy can be depressed and stagnant.  An energy and space clearing will do wonders for your ability to focus, enjoy and brighten your whole life.  A Space Clearing, or House Blessing, will reset the energy for ease and enjoyment free of negative influences.

Shifting the energy

You can begin to easily shift the energy of your spaces using your intention, sound, scent and/or more elaborate and traditional methods that will take some time and focus.

There are levels of space clearing, some as simple as clapping, others are more elaborate that remove negative energy from generations and eons and reset the space to the Divine blueprint for nourishment.  The latter is best done by a professional.

I highly recommend that each home or office have a professional thorough space clearing to reset it back to its original blueprint to support life.   I have done Space Clearings on many homes and offices, often within a day or so shifts occur in the people who live and work there, less stress, more joy, easier relationships.  I have also performed space clearings for real estate that have netted offers within days of the clearing.

Do It Yourself?

You can shift the energy for an evening or forever, before a meeting or before dinner.  It takes intention and focus.  You can do a more thorough clearing using a system I recommend for beginners called the Do-It-Yourself Space Clearing Kit by Christan Hummel.  It will take you about a day to learn and about 2 hours to do yourself.  Buy only the entire kit, as the CD’s are wonderful and add benefit to the clearing.

A Quick Energy Reset

I recommend that you take a centering breath and set your intention to shift the energy.  I always imagine myself surrounded by a Golden Sphere of protection, you can too.

Stand at the entry to the space or home and set your intention for fresh new energy of love, light and health (or whatever you want to experience there: easy communication, harmony, equity, etc.)  Walk clockwise using one of the following methods and you’ll have shifted the energy to the positive.

Clapping, Chiming a bell

Clapping is a wonderful and abrupt way to shift the energy.  In China, traditionally they did not clap at the end of a grand performance so that they would take the energy of the performance home with them.  We clap in acknowledgement, but it also severs the ties that were formed between us.

Set your intention to clear the room of any and all negative energy and to fill the space with Light and Love.  Stand at the door and clap three times.  Notice the sound of the first clap, usually it’s dull, and gets more clear and crisp as you progress.  Clap into each corner, each closet and as you do say your intention:  “Light, Love and Happiness” or whatever it is that you want to fill the space with.

Bells are wonderful energy clearers, the more beautiful and sacred the bell the better.  Use it in much the same way you would use your own hands to clap.  Just like the song “If I had a Hammer” by the Mamas and the Papas, “I’d ring out danger, I’d ring out warning, and I’d ring out love between my brothers and my sisters…”  Of course, using a Hammer wouldn’t quite have the same affect…do not try that at home.

Music is another way to embed the energy with positive frequencies.  I particularly like soft classical, happy music and I often use Reiki Mountains by Sambodi Prem to play in my home while I’m away.  I come home to a peaceful space.  Click here to listen to a sample of the CD.

Sage Clearing

Ancient indigenous civilizations around the world use the smoke of a grey-green herb to cleanse their spaces.  Native Americans use white sage, although when you go to purchase sage you’ll find many other herb combinations in the traditional sage wands.  Yet, not everyone can tolerate the smoke & smell that is sometimes confused with marijuana.

Sage wands are available either online or in some places like Whole Foods.  They vary in their intensity and strength usually comes bundled in a wand or sometimes you can find it loose.

Make sure you have a bowl or large shell to hold under the sage to catch any embers.  Light the sage and let it burn for a few moments then blow it out so that the embers are smoking.   Set your intention for a ‘smooth, easy clearing’ and connect to your Starting at the door of the building, I set my intention for “Clean, Clear, Light and Love.” As I walk around the rooms (usually clockwise) I repeat that phrase continually as I wave the smoke into all the edges and corners, all the way around the outside and inside of the space.

Incense and Essential Oils:

For thousands of years the healing and energetic benefits of plants and herbs have been known and used.  Incense and essential oils are potent forms allowing their effectiveness to be magnified.   When used in Space Clearing, they add their own powerful impact to further clear the energy and reset the space for health, wealth and happiness.

“Essential oils…are the natural, aromatic volatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. The distinctive components in essential oils defend plants against insects, environmental conditions, and disease. They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve, and adapt to its surroundings. Essential oils are extracted from aromatic plant sources via steam distillation, and are highly concentrated and far more potent than dry herbs. While essential oils often have a pleasant aroma, their chemical makeup is complex and their benefits vast—which makes them much more than something that simply smells good.” (Young Living Essential Oils)

A few drops of an essential oil diffused into a space can uplift and clear the energy.  There are many blends available; I particularly like Clarity, Joy and Release from Young Living.  I also use Rose Oil which is a very high frequency, White Angelica will impart a sweet, light and almost holy feeling, lavender oil which is antiseptic and calming at the same time (when applied to a non-broken skin burn quickly will actually reverse the damage), citrus is clearing, grapefruit will help you lose weight, vanilla is warm, sensual, relaxing and sexy, and so on…

Incense is a tree gum resin that is captured and dried into small nuggets.  Sometimes you’ll find incense sticks, some with charcoal in the mixture and some without.  Sometimes you’ll find the nuggets themselves, which are burned on a special charcoal with an indentation in the center and all of it is placed in an incense pot.   My favorites are Blood Dragon, Nag Champa and Frankincense & Myrrh.


The intention with which you do anything is imbedded into that ‘thing’ or event.  Take a moment to reset the energy and watch how you will begin to have more fun, lighten up, see the joy and love and this is what will continue to fill your spaces and your days.
