EVERYTHING IS ENERGY
If ever near the ocean, do you notice the energy of the water in motion and the abundant negative ions this produces, bringing more energy and vitality? How does that make you feel.
What if you enter a building or someone’s home and it felt heavy, dense, depressing and the energy just feels stuck? The energy seems to linger for no apparent reason. You start to feel drained and out of sorts and you don’t know why?
Now compare the two energies – one is unsettling and the other uplifting – which would you prefer?
Buildings and rooms hold energy and that includes the furniture and other physical objects as well as the people present and past. Just because you can’t see it, it doesn’t mean it’s not there. Everything is energy and there are vibrations and frequencies in and around us that that can either optimise or diminish our mental, physical, emotional well-being, health and vitality.
A LITTLE HISTORY
Space Clearing has been practiced traditionally amongst many Ancient cultures throughout world, and is based on the principle of introducing higher resonant frequencies for purification using specific methods and tools based on cultural belief systems throughout the ages.
Native Americans used smudging rituals for healing, cleansing one’s aura and space clearing with sage, sweetgrass and cedar.
The smoke of African sage is still used as an offering when praying, to call the ancestors, invoke trance states and to cleanse the energy in spaces and around people.
Asian traditions use gongs, bells, and incenses for space clearing.
Throughout the Middle East incenses and resins have been used for centuries to cleanse a space and bring in higher energies, using myrrh, frankincense, and copal.
In South America Shamans have used Palo Santo Wood and Incense for healing, clearing, and bringing in positive energy. There are additional methods and tools used to space clear, and include essential oils, sea salt, crystals, intention and prayer.
