Space Clearing Your Home or Office

The term ‘Space Clearing’ refers to the art of cleansing and consecrating spaces. It Is a profound and highly effective technique for clearing and revitalising the energy in buildings, including homes, office, schools, hospitals and even cars.

Quantum physics has proved that everything In the Universe and beyond is comprised of energy, constantly flowing and changing and affecting all areas of our lives. Theoretically, the beat of a butterfly’s wings, for example, can affect climatic patterns in another pat of the world, showing that even the subtlest of changes in energy can have a major impact across the globe.

Similarly, changes in energy levels in the place we live, work or socialise can have far-reaching effects on our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.

Energetically, everything that happens in a building – actions and emotions – ripple out like the affect of a stone dropped in a pond, and becomes recorded in the walls, floors, furniture and objects, plants, animals and people.

Strong emotions, traumas and repeated physical or emotional patterns are imprinted in the very fabric of the structure.

Walking Into a room whore an argument has just taken place for example, often causes people to remark ‘You could have cut the air with a knife’, meaning that the atmosphere was so dense it was almost physically tangible.

The residue of these energy ripples accumulates around the building, particularly in corners and soft furnishings. Like the build up of dust in a home, this leads to the energy stagnating, affecting the flow of energy of vibrant energy within the building and within the lives of the occupants.

Our homes are mirrors of ourselves, reflecting our hopes, dreams and spirit. If, for example, a person is feeling blocked in a relationship, the energy in that part of the person’s home will almost certainly be stagnant – either physically or with clutter, or stuck energy.

Space Clearing clears, raises and revitalises the energy in our own personal spaces, and in doing so, raises the quality of our lives. It allows our living spaces to become a collection point for positive, vibrant energy, which in turn is radiated out to the rest of the world and the universe beyond. It also clears away energy that previous occupants have left there, as well as energy of people who visit you. Carried out regular, it keeps your home clear, raises the vibration and helps to keep your life moving forwards in positive new directions.

Space clearing is particularly effective when used in conjunction with conventional Feng Shui and regular decluttering of your space. The combination of these three processes gives many clients a life-transforming experience.

Space Clearing Your Own Home

Space clearing your own home can be very powerful in terms of your own progression and will connect you with the heart of your home, which is the heart of you. For more information I suggest the book ‘Space Clearing’ by Denise Linn or ‘Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston.

Initial Preparations

  • Give your home or office a thorough deep clean – in particular include things you don’t get round to as regularly as a quick dust and hoover – such as the inside of windows, cleaning behind the sofas, and under the bed. The more energy you put into this, especially visualising that you are clearing away what is not longer needed, the better the results you will get
  • Then sweep the floor and the area outside of your front door. I tend to do this all of physically cleaning the day before, amd then start with fresh energy when I wake up
  • Collect together everything you need for the ceremony (see below where I describe items you can use in your personal space clearing process)
  • Be clear in your intentions. Think about why you are clearing this space – i.e. to remove any negative vibrations from the previous occupant, or f you have been unwell, or had a break up - releasing that energy Or if you have had guests staying, you may want to let their energy go, to re-attune your home to your own vibration. It is also very important for therapy rooms – to keep the space cleared regularly to release the client’s emotions. I would also do it when I was about to embark on a new project or go on an important trip – to manifest the highest outcomes from your project or travels.

Preparing Yourself

  • Remove all jewellery / metal accessories from your person.
  • Wash your hands and face, and if possible take a shower or bath. Roll up your sleeves (our forearms are the most sensitive area of our bodies).
  • Open the windows and door– this is really important to let the stagnant energy out!
  • Place protection around yourself – visualise yourself surrounded by a bubble of golden or white light that only lets through positive energy.

A simple ceremony

  • Set up a table with a cloth that is only used for space clearing. Place your space clearing equipment which could include bells, drums, rattles, singing bowls, special incense or sage (I supply this to clients) and a dish of sea salt on the table.
  • Prepare a flower offering for the building and put it in a place that feels right to you.
  • Stand at the front door and announce that you are here to space clear the property. Call upon your guardian angels and helpers if you wish (and it feels appropriate or whatever you consider to be your higher power).
  • Set your intention for the space clearing – say out loud and you could also write it down. Use the wording such as ‘My intention is to clear away all negative or stagnant energies, to make way for a fresh start for our business and create a happy, vibrant space that benefit all who live or work here, visitors, pets and plants.’  
  • Take the salt outside and sprinkle it across all doorways leading into the building.
  • Stand inside the space with your back to the door and walk around in a clockwise direction, sensing the energy with your hands, and make your way back to the door.
  • Walk around the house again, clapping or using some sort of sound – if you have a drum, rattle, singing bowl etc, in each corner.
  • Then walk around again, in a clockwise direction burning the sage to clear any negative energy. Visualise it leaving out of the windows. Visualise the sage or incense smoke purifying all of the walls, flooring and air in the building cleansing it and releasing any trapped energy. You could use a feather to help waft the energy that is leaving out of the windows.
  • Keep repeating your intention out loud.
  • Then wash your hands under running water to cleanse away any remaining energy.
  • Walk around the building again making the sign of infinity (a sideways figure of eight) with your hand. This is a powerful energiser for your property. If you are trained in Reiki you could also use the Cho Ku Rei symbol or simply send positive energy throughout your home.
  • Write a list of all of the things you want to happen within your life over the next few months – focusing on achievable goals – which could be emotional changes, better health, more clarity and focus as well as more tangible things such as more money etc. Add things that are the next steps – challenging possibly but within reach.
  • Walk around the property again, this time with a stick of lighted incense that you like the smell of. I use Paleo Santo wood for this which you can but easily online.
  • Visualise your positive intentions and wishes flowing out of the incense and being carried around each room, filling all of the corners. Again use whatever words feel right to you. During this part, I say things like, thank you helping me/us achieve xxx, thank you for making the next few months happy, positive and successful, thank you for making my personal life and business a complete success and lots of positive opportunities flowing my/our way.
  • Imagine now that you are preserving this positive energy in the building by imagining white or golden light completely surrounding it and sealing the good energy in. Also if you have a crystal of any sort, you can hold the crystal, and visualise the positive energy you have created programming it, to hold your intentions,  Make sure you have cleansed it under running water before programming it. Then put this somewhere in the building – possibly the north, or the centre of your home or in a sacred place to you.
  • Thank your guides and helpers, and your home.
  • Then wait for the magic to happen – it is usually almost instant.

Fine Art Brings Happiness

A beautiful and moving image now graces my wall: layers of vibrant colour alternatively reveal and conceal forms of significance, depicted with emotion and artistry. The abstract quality is such that it is a timeless piece I will always value and enjoy.

Feng Shui Consultation for New Home

Growing up in China, I have always interested in Fengshui. As we were moving to Ipswich, I googled Fengshui consultant locally and that is how I found Rachel. I am so glad that we connected through the email initially. The house move took 9 months, Rachel was so patient, and she offered me advice through the process. I was so excited to meet her the day after we moved in. It provided us with a lot of comfort and guidiance at the new home. With her consultation, we had a much better understanding of the new space. Rachel is very intuitive, she did the dowsing, cleared the geopathic stress by using 'acupuncture'. The ritual she carried out involved all family member, so it was rather special.  By using Fengshui principle and combined with our personal astrology, Rachel pointed out where the 'special corners' in our house, for example the wealth, relationship, friends and helpful people etc; She also helped us choose the interior colour, elemental accessories, positive symbolism in art works etc. I am so glad that I have found Rachel. It made us settle in and connect with our new home much quicker. The declutter has given us a much healthier space to live in. Whenever I feel disconnected with our home, I try to use some of the Fengshui she taught us to refresh and cleanse. I am so grateful that I contacted Rachel at the first place. 

Feng Shui Resolved Serious Mental Health Issue

I asked for Rachels help with a young family member. They were having mental health issues which involved refusing to attend school, withdrawing from friendship groups and showing signs of psychosis. Rachel discussed with me her findings regarding her birth date and time in relation to her specialised work. Together we put a plan in place as I was to help. I carried out her recommendations. She stated that this time would come to an end this Spring and they would be through the part of the chart that was causing the chaos. I am so excited to report that they were again attending school until the lockdown. She is fully interacting with her family and is again part of her friendship group. Due to the lockdown and her now being well she is catching up with the school work she missed and will be ready to start again when the time comes. She is now off all medication which included ADHD and antidepressant prescription drugs. I cannot thank Rachel enough. If you are on the fence regarding her work, don’t be, it will be the best thing you could do for yourself and those you care for.

Feng Shui Consultation Solved Tenant Crisis Ipswich

"Before I got in touch with Rachel, I was at a loss to know what to do. I had bought a flat to rent out in Ipswich, but it attracted the wrong types of tenants. The previous three tenants had either not paid their rent or had left the flat in a very bad state of repair, or both. In effect, I was just chucking money into a big black hole. I wanted to keep the flat, which I would eventually pass on to my son, but I still had the mortgage to pay. After reading about feng shui and the effect it can have, I was keen to find out more. I contacted Rachel and she explained what she intended to do and why. Admittedly, I was a bit sceptical at first, but I was keen to give it a go. Much to my amazement, after a six month rent void, that same week, a potential tenant turned up at the flat. The couple liked what they saw and moved in within two weeks. Much to my relief, they also paid the rent on time. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone in a similar situation."
