Clearing Difficult Energies
We clear and remove unhealthy energies from your energy system and your surroundings to improve your experience of daily life. We are energetic beings, porous and penetrable, and because of this we resonate to the energies in our surroundings, and our surroundings also tend to gather and hold energies that are not always beneficial to us.
This is normal, yet not desirable. Energy fields come from a variety of sources; the pressure of unfinished business from our ancestors, judgments from others, expectations, geopathic stresses, and the energies of past events in a building and on the land, to name a few.
Removing unhealthy energies generally falls into one of two categories of shamanic work:
- Clearing your Personal Energy Body; the Extraction of Spiritual Intrusions
- Clearing your Work and Living spaces
Clearing can greatly improve your immediate living experience and allow you to live in greater ease and peace of mind.
Clearing Personal Energies
I invite you to read this interview with my teacher, Betsy Bergstrom, which is a beautiful article on how we can become attached to and be affected by certain energies.
Here, also, is a fascinating article about possession sickness in the wake of the Japan tsunami in 2011, and how they were cleared.
Clearing personal energies isn't all darkness and depossession, however; simple energy clearings can be very effective in lifting moods, bringing you clarity, and easing minor body aches and dysfunction that seem to never go away. There are both simple and complex methods for clearing the energies that tend to lodge in our bodies in an unhelpful way.
Space Clearing -- Clearing the Energies of Places
Clearing the energies of places and anchoring healthful and pristine energies can really help with your day-to-day experience in that place. Space Clearing combines the art of placement, like Feng Shui, with the energetic work of actually clearing and removing detrimental energies and energy fields from buildings and land.
Living spaces benefit from periodic clearings, and, like a Spring Cleaning, you will notice a much brighter and happier place to spend your daily time.
Factors to consider
Although houses and buildings can be moved, it varies from difficult to impossible to change the setting of a house set in a valley to make it look like it is now a house on a ridge-top. In the same way, it may be difficult to fundamentally alter the underlying energetics of the land on which a building sits and which influences everything that goes on inside that building. The land can play an enormous role in the difficult energetics you may be experiencing. Imprints from what has happened there before can influence the energies in a space, and can take more intervention to smooth out. This may or may not be changeable.
For example, I once had an office on the second floor of a large medical facility. There were people below me, people above me, and people all around me in various states of anxiety about their health, all day, every day. I had to work each day to clear and maintain the energies in this office which was literally suspended in the middle of a potent soup of thick and difficult energies. In this case, the land helped. Former farm land, the land spirits contributed what they could contribute.
Regularly-shaped spaces and buildings with simple geometry are the easiest to clear. Complex shapes or places with twisting hallways tend to be a little more difficult to clear. The land that a building sits on has a bit to do with how easily a building, home, or office can be cleared; Some places clear very easily. Others just can't seem to hold a good energy field at all. I use a wide variety of clearing methods in my work to clear out old, stagnant energies, and to anchor in pristine and vital energies of blessing. When I work with you, I teach you some of the simple clearing methods so that you can help keep your space sparkling with vitality.
If you feel that your living or working space could use some clearing, contact me and let me take a look. It could be that the daily experience of your place can be greatly improved!
