Space Clearing, one of the elements of Feng Shui, is perfect for creating a peaceful energy in your home that will support you to stay centered and balanced.
Space Clearing is a process for cleanses the energy flowing through your home. Space Clearing involves doing a simple ceremony to release the negative energies. Start by creating an altar on your coffee table. Cover the table with a beautiful scarf, and then add a candle, spiritual figurine, a crystal or objects that represent the sacred to you.
Start your ceremony at the altar with a prayer or meditation to call in angels, your spiritual helpers and guides. State your intention of cleansing your space from all negative energies and ask these celestial beings to help.
Next move through each room and clear the energy by ringing a bell, beating a drum or burning a smudge stick (desert sage tied tightly into a bundle). This can be obtained at a health food store or New Age bookstore. It is one of the most powerful ways to Space Clear. Native Americans have used this method for centuries to clear and uplift energy. Be sure to open a door or window slightly to release the negative energies as you clear.
Affirm Your Positive Intentions
After you have cleared each room, move through again stating your positive intention for that space. For example, in the kitchen, you might affirm your intention to have peaceful stress free meals that nourish your body. In the bedroom, you might affirm your intention to have restful sleep that regenerates your body. To seal the intention, use your hand to draw the infinity symbol in the air. The infinity symbol looks like a figure eight lying on its side. You could also draw in the air any other sacred symbol that is meaningful to you.
Complete your Space Clearing Ceremony by returning to your altar and giving thanks to your angels and spiritual helpers. Ask that the new energy be integrated with calmness and peace. You now have clear energy to live peacefully in each day.
