Why it feels so good to sleep in your own bed

Have you ever wondered why it feels so good to sleep into your own bed, especially after you’ve been away travelling for a while? It’s partly to do with the comfort factor of your own mattress, pillow, bedding, and so on. But there are is also a deeper reason that I have discovered as a result of conducting space clearing consultations around the world over the last 35+ years. It’s all to do with understanding how energies are imprinted.


Energy imprinting

We all leave a trail of energy behind us wherever we go in much the same way that we leave a trail of human skin flakes in our wake (about 80% of most household dust is human skin). We leave energy imprints in the places we visit and especially in the items we touch. The longer we spend in a place and the more we touch the objects in it, the more imprinted the place and the objects become.

It’s not surprising, therefore, that the most deeply imprinted item in most people’s homes is their bed. Over a period of time you imprint your energy into your mattress so when you lie on it, it feels like “coming home” to yourself.

I’ve had the opportunity to energy sense hundreds of homes and read many kinds of imprints that people leave in walls, furniture and personal belongings. But it’s beds that are the most absorbent and the most revealing of all. By energy sensing with my hands, I can read just about everything there is to know about a person from their bed. Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, sexually – whatever is happening in their lives, it’s all imprinted there. It’s not just that mattresses are very absorbent, it’s also that this is usually the place a person spends the most time in any 24-hour period in the stillest and most energetically open state.

One of my space clearing students who was having difficulty learning hand sensing hit upon a brilliant way of developing it. She had her young son lie down next to his bed and alternately energy sensed him from head to foot and then energy sensed his bed from head to foot until gradually she was able to feel the similarity with her hands. If you try this yourself, note that you don’t actually touch the person or the bed – you run your hands a few inches above them, reading the etheric field.

There is a sliding scale of imprintability I’ve developed in space clearing that calibrates building materials. The least imprintable materials in their solid state are metal and glass which, incidentally, is one of the main reasons why a front door made from either of these materials is a feng shui no-no – it isn’t able to anchor the energies that a front door is supposed to (wood is a much better choice). At the other end of the scale, porous materials such as soft furnishings (mattresses, sofas, etc) are the most imprintable. As a simple guide, if you were to pour a glass of water over a substance, the more saturated it would become, the more receptive to energy imprinting it is too.

First the good news…

Some energy imprints are very desirable. A large part of what makes a house a home is imprinting it with your own energy. This also explains why a place with soft furnishings feels more homely. It’s partly the comfort factor but also the degree of imprinting that is possible. Homes with steel or glass furnishings may look sleek and elegant, but these materials are difficult to imprint so the place never feels very welcoming or nurturing.

Now the not-so-good news

Imprinting also brings with it a number of problems that most people are not aware of.

Firstly, all energy imprints gradually lose their vitality and stagnate so if you don’t do something about it, your life will start to stagnate too. Imagine what your home would look like if you never physically cleaned it. There would be layers of grime and cobwebs everywhere. Well, that’s what most homes are like on an energetic level.

Another problem is that everything that happens in a space is imprinted in the walls and furniture, so if you want to move on from the past you first need to clear out the old imprints. Otherwise history just repeats itself and you never move forward in your life.

Take the example of a bed belonging to a couple in which one of them has previously had a relationship with someone else. When I hand sense such a bed, I find that there are three distinct energies that can be felt – each of the current partners, and also the previous lover. Essentially there are three people’s energies in the bed, not two, and because of this, the current relationship is very likely to end the same way the previous one did. It’s a disaster waiting to happen.

How to clear energy imprints

I’ve done many consultations where someone has started a new relationship and is living in the same property that their partner lived with his or her ex. This is never ideal because it always feels like the first person to live in a place has a greater degree of ownership than the person who comes to join them. There is also the problem that the energies of the previous partner need to be cleared out so that new relationship can flourish.

Space clearing can help with this, but something more is needed when it comes to clearing out energy imprints in the mattress. A good guideline is to get yourself a new mattress every 10 years, and sooner if you start a new relationship that you are serious about and want to succeed. The basic rule is: New relationship, new mattress. Or even better: New relationship, new mattress, and a new home that neither of you have lived in before.

If you can’t afford a new mattress just yet or have a fairly new one but it’s imprinted with history you want to move on from, there is a technique I’ve developed that you can use. It’s called bed thwacking, and while it’s not as good as buying a completely new mattress, it’s certainly the next best thing.

Sharing your bed with a partner

Some couples like to keep to their own sides of the bed and they always sleep this way. I find it very easy to discover this when hand sensing because the individual imprints are very clearly defined.

So here’s a wonderful tip if you sleep like this and your partner goes travelling and you miss them: Just snuggle into their side of the bed and wrap yourself in their energy imprint. You’ll be amazed how good it feels.

If you’re in the kind of relationship where you and your partner often switch sides of the bed you won’t be able to experience this effect when they’re not there, but on the other hand, your energies will be more interwoven so you’re likely to be a lot more open to each other at deep emotional levels than couples who stick to their own sides. On the other hand, in order to keep the relationship healthy, there’s a lot to be said for having phases of each partner maintaining their own individuality. You can experiment a little to find out what works best for you.

Another important tip for creating and maintaining a happy relationship is: Never discuss your problems in bed. Why? Because that’s what gets imprinted, and then you go to sleep in that space, with your problems swirling around you all night long.

If you must discuss issues with your partner before sleep then move to another place, preferably not in the bedroom at all. Keep your bed as a clear space for sleep and intimacy. And NEVER sleep in the same bed with unresolved arguments between you. You’ll be engaged in astral wars all night long that do long-term damage to a relationship. If you can’t resolve an issue between you before the end of the day then it’s best for one of you to sleep somewhere else in the home that night and work through the problem in the fresh light of the next day.

Space clearing after splitting up with a partner

When a couple splits up, the person who moves out has to find a new place to live. That can be pretty tough. But if you are the person left behind, you will have a different kind of problem to contend with. You will be left with all the energy imprints in the home of everything that happened there.

These imprints will be in the walls, the furniture, and especially in the bed you shared together. The history of good times and bad times will all be mingled in together, and if the relationship did not end well, there will be a layer of stress, arguments and unhappy times overlaying everything else. It’s very difficult to pick up and carry on living in such an environment, and there is also the problem that these imprints can cause history to repeat itself if you begin a new relationship while living in the same place.

New life

The best solution when a relationship ends, is therefore for both partners to start a new life in a new home, but there are many situations when this is not possible – for example, if you have children, it can be very destabilizing for them to have to move and perhaps leave their school and their friends. It can also be just too expensive to even consider.

A good solution in this situation is a deep and thorough space clearing to clear out the frequencies of the old relationship and bring in new frequencies to help you build your life anew. Be sure to include bed thwacking too, to help to clear out the imprints from your mattress.

Full information about how to do a space clearing ceremony can be found in Part One of my book, Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui.

It would be a good idea to also read Chapter 15 of Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui which explains how to free yourself from negative or non-productive associations you may have with items in your home that are associated with the old relationship.

The kiss line

Developing etheric awareness is an essential skill for anyone wishing to develop space clearing skills beyond beginners’ level and, in the process of doing so, there is something you are likely to come across that I call the kiss line.

The kiss line

There are two main types of loving relationships in which you can experience it. One is with a sexual partner, when you lie naked next to them, your bodies touching. The other is with a baby, child, friend or close relative, when you have some part of your skin resting in contact with theirs. You both need to be very relaxed, comfortable with each other, and perfectly still.

With a sexual partner it is easiest to feel if you are lying side by side rather than physically intertwined with the other person, but with practice you can tune in to the kiss line in any position.

Put your awareness on the line between you where your physical bodies touch and feel what is happening energetically in that space. If you and your partner both have a degree of etheric awakening, it will feel as if your skins are kissing each other all along that line.

It’s as if every possibility that exists between you is in that line, in an exquisitely condensed quintessential form. There is an intelligent knowingness, with multiple interchanges of energy and information each second. The more love, openness and honesty there is between you, the greater the energy exchange and level of bliss. Conversely, if there is anything one of you is hiding from the other, the effect is diminished accordingly.

Women who’ve had exquisite experiences when breastfeeding their babies will know exactly what I’m talking about, even if they’ve never put it in these terms before.

This is not something you will find if you lie naked next to your pet, by the way. Yes, there is something that can pass in the love between humans and pets, but it cannot be compared to what I’m describing here. The kiss line is essentially human.

Is it the same if a robot vacuums your home?

IRobot vacuum cleaner‘ve always been fascinated by how effectively vacuuming removes not just physical debris but also refreshes the energy of a room.

A vacuum cleaner is a physical, mechanical device, designed to suck up dust and all the inevitable bits that get dropped on the floor. But because stagnant energies also sink to floor level, it does a remarkably good job of revitalizing them too, through its vibrating, sweeping, sucking action. Or as Hoover’s oh so memorable advertising slogan of 1919 put it: ‘It Beats, as it Sweeps, as it Cleans’.

Robot vacuums
And now we have a new generation of robot vacuums, designed to clean up after us automatically without us having to lift a finger. The good quality ones are still too pricey to be mainstream, but it looks like the future of cleaning is heading that way. My question is, because no human operator is involved, does your home feel as clean after a robot has cleaned it as it does if you clean it yourself using a good old-fashioned handheld vacuum?

Technically (and depending on the efficiency of the model, of course), there may be no difference. The same amount of dust and dirt gets hoovered up and the floor looks equally clean. But just as food tastes different according to the love and care that is put into it by the person who cooks it, so a room can feel different according to whether it is vacuumed by a mechanical device or by a human who puts care into it. Scientists can’t measure this subtle quality, but most people can sure as heck taste it in food, and more sensitive folk will be able to feel the difference with a robot vacuum too.

So does it really matter?
Well, here we get into the realm of etheric awareness and space clearing. If you’ve ever had your home space cleared by one of the professionals I’ve trained, you will know how different it can feel after all the stagnant energies and astral imprints have been cleaned out and new, higher frequencies have been instilled. It is as if a fresh wind has swept through, cleansing and revitalizing the space at a very deep level, and resetting your home as a clean slate on which to write your life.

My husband, Richard, and I, regularly space clear our home and keep it energetically maintained in this way, so that it supports us in our lives rather than holding us back. Because of this, we have noticed a huge difference between how it feels when we vacuum the floors ourselves and how it feels when we hire someone to do this for us.

When we vacuum ourselves, we presence and own the space as we go. When a cleaner does it for us, he or she may use the same equipment, and it has the same mechanical action, but it never feels as clean. On a physical level there’s no difference, but at the higher levels, just as with food that is cooked without love and care, something is tangibly missing.

Or rather, here in the West it is. When we lived in Bali, we were fortunate to have a wonderful woman called Padmi who cleaned our home beautifully. Not just at the physical level, but at the higher levels too. The Balinese have space clearing rituals they perform on a daily basis, and they naturally carry spiritual forces of purification in their blood. Padmi did not just beat as she swept as she cleaned. She loved and cared for and presenced our home too. Ah, how we miss her now!

So there is a spiritual component that can be brought to the mundane action of vacuuming a home, and if the result can be so different when your average western cleaner does it, how much greater will this be if the task is relegated to a robot? I’ll leave it to you to experiment and discover for yourself.
