Why it’s not OK to do space clearing with a child or baby present

Cute child with harmony ballIf you have babies or children under eight years old, they will need to be taken care of away from the home during the ceremony.

Why it’s not OK to have children present

They are vulnerable and sensitive to energy changes
Young children, and especially babies, are vulnerable to picking up energetic debris that is cleared during the ceremony. They are also very sensitive to energy shifts and may become unsettled while the space clearing is going on, which means you would have to stop what you are doing to attend to them.

Everything needs to come to a standstill during the ceremony
Ideally during the entire ceremony, and definitely while activating offerings and doing the clapping and belling circuits, all activities in the home need to come to a complete standstill. This includes playing games and turning off equipment such as TVs, computers, tablets, phones and other gadgets.

Parts of the ceremony children can participate in

It usually works very well for children who are three years old and above to come back into the home for the harmony ball part of the ceremony, near the end. They can be present while you’re frequencing the harmony ball, and if you have an extra one to give to them to use, they can join in the circuit where you go from room to room, shaking out the new frequencies into the space. You, the adult, must be the one that does the actual frequencing (you can’t give that level of responsibility to a child), but they can certainly follow round behind you.

Most kids really enjoy this, and because they’re smaller than adults, they can get into places you wouldn’t be able to, such as under tables and in closets. It’s very cute to see!

How hand sensing reveals deeper levels

What’s on the outside is always on the inside, but what’s on the inside is not always on the outside.

What this means is that everything in a person’s home is a reflection of something inside them, but this does not mean that this is all they are. There may well be latent talents that have never emerged, or yearnings and desires that have never been expressed.

Reading energy imprints

I see this all the time in the houses I visit to do consultations, and this is where my hand sensing technique comes in so useful. Rather than accepting everything I see in a client’s home at face value, I nearly always begin a feng shui, space clearing or clutter clearing consultation by doing a hand sensing circuit to get a deeper reading of the space.

Hand sensing involves reading the energies imprinted in walls, furniture and other items with my hands. The best way I have found to explain how I do this is to use the analogy of reading a book. How is it that we are able to translate the tiny symbols we see printed on a page into meaningful concepts just by scanning our eyes over them? Most people would not be able to explain this if asked, but we all do it just about every day of our lives. With hand sensing the principle is the same, but it is unseen energies rather than symbols that are being read and translated. With practice, it can be developed to a very high level of accuracy, and I’ve successfully taught many space clearing practitioners how to do it.

What hand sensing reveals

I once worked with a young woman who had asked for a feng shui consultation. She explained in detail the difficulties she was experiencing in her relationship and with a book she was writing, but I could tell these weren’t the real issues at all.  My hand sensing circuit revealed that something much deeper needed to be addressed before she would be able to make much progress with either.

The only items she owned that had any vibrancy about them at all were a colourful picture of two people dancing, a very cute image of two bunny rabbits rubbing noses together, and a rug she had bought in India. Everything else was energetically bland, and sure enough, when I began asking her about the various pictures she had on the walls, she used words such as ‘harmless’, ‘calm’, or ‘not disruptive’ to describe each of them.

As we worked our way round her apartment, she gradually came to realize that these items all reflected how life had been for her when she was growing up, attempting to avoid the heavy hand of her step-father by being as obedient and unobtrusive as possible. Even though she had owned her own apartment for five years and was free to decorate it as she pleased, she had chosen items that would be inconspicuous and unremarkable. In fact, going deeper still, she hadn’t even chosen most of them herself – they had been gifts she didn’t even really like from her mother or sister.

She wasn’t living her own life at all, and what was on the outside clearly showed that. The real “her” was trapped on the inside. No wonder the writing wasn’t flowing, and no wonder she didn’t feel able to talk freely to her boyfriend. She had been stifling her self-expression all her life.

As soon as she realized this, she immediately began taking down pictures and removing ornaments, as if she couldn’t bear to have them in her home a moment longer. She also began to confide in me other things she hadn’t yet admitted, such as how ardently she longs to have a baby, and how much she resents the way some people treat her. It was all there, just waiting for the opportunity to bubble up to the surface, but no-one would ever have guessed this just by looking. It was all so well hidden beneath the subservient exterior that had kept her safe as a child but was now stifling her creativity as an adult.

I left her with many suggestions for how to turn her home into a joyous canvas for her life rather than the dutiful shell of existence she had settled for.

‘I thought you would tell me to move my sofa,’ she said, as I was preparing to leave. Well yes, furniture positioning can be important and I did check it while I was there. But getting to the source of an issue that has been running someone’s life is a far deeper and much more meaningful level of feng shui that can bring about profound and lasting changes. It is always a great privilege to be invited into a home to put vision on such things.

Does space clearing really clear imprints?

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.
