Space Clearing: The Ancient Ritual
Space clearing is a Ritual that can be found throughout the world, across cultures. Science has proven that everything is comprised of energy, constantly flowing, changing and affecting all areas of our lives. The term space clearing refers to the art of cleansing a space of lingering energy, stagnation or energetic disturbances. Transforming existing energy to that of a higher vibration.
The idea that we can exist independently of our environment is a misconception.You are not separate from the world around you. Everything is comprised of constantly changing energy.
The energy of the places in which we live, work, shop and vacation will affect our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Bring integrity into your spaces so they are in balance with the flow of nature and supportive of your intentions. The ceremony of space clearing moves stagnant energy and infuses your home, boutique, or hotel with vitality and well-being, creating spaces that add immeasurably to life’s satisfactions.
Space clearing clears the emotional debris that accumulates in buildings. Some things to note when setting out to clear your space:
- Less is best. Start by clearing clutter. This is one of the simplest and most powerful Feng Shui remedies and should always be a first consideration. Check for objects that may symbolically represent blockages to the flow of chi. Remove things around you that are not in good repair; change any burnt out light bulbs, clean windows, dust mirrors, sweep entryways.
- Cleansing the energy of the outer environment is only part of the correction. Make sure your personal energy is in a good place. Do not space clear if you are feeling worn out, sick, angry or sad. Cleanse the clutter from your body by journaling as a form of release.
- Change is good. Always set a clearly defined intention for your clearing. There is great power in symbolic acts. Your intention is very important in any clearing that you do. Allow yourself the time to thoroughly articulate any specific or long-term objectives. There are many space clearing techniques available (smudging, palo santo, sage, chimes, singing bowls, misting, salt ect.) and all will work in support of your radiating intentions. Envision the space as you would like to experience it.
- Open doors and windows to allow for beneficial circulation. This also gives an outlet for stale energies. Move clockwise around the space you are clearing giving special attention to doorways.
- The interior entry is the location where the building inhales its energy, therefore it should be thoroughly cleansed, clutter free and enhanced with a flowering plant or any single item of beauty.
After clearing a space it should feel lighter and look brighter. Photos have shown a space can be up to 3 shades brighter.
Our ancient ancestors understood how to properly integrate their lives with the energy in the environment. Different cultures used different methods with a common understanding that we are at our best when we are in agreement with our surroundings.
Declutter your space energetically while creating positive energy through resolution, intention and blessings. Lift your Spirits with the Sacred Art of Space Clearing.
