The kiss line

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.

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.

White altar cloths & colourizers

White altar clothWhite space clearing altar clothsWhite colourizersAn altar is used in space clearing to create a symbolic representation of the focus for the ceremony and an anchorage for the frequencies of change it is designed to bring about. This increases the effectiveness of the ceremony enormously.

Begin by laying a white tablecloth on the table you will be using for your altar. Ideally use a brand new tablecloth, or at least one that has never been used for anything else before. Between space clearings keep it with your space clearing kit rather than just throwing it into a drawer with mundane items.

The next item to lay on the altar is the altar cloth. They come in a range of sizes (large, small and miniature) and a range of colours. But the most popular colour by far is white. It also happens to be the most difficult to make. There are only eight weavers in Bali who are skilled enough to create them.

When to use a white altar cloth
White is used in the space clearing ceremony to bring in the frequencies of clarity, simplicity and purity. It is the combination of all colours in the visible spectrum. Made of cotton silk interwoven with gold metallic thread and small bursts of colour, the weave of these cloths reflects this unique quality.

Clarity: For situations where you need to make decisions and move forward in life.

Simplicity: For situations where you need to unravel a situation that has become too complicated.

Purity: Purification lies at the heart of space clearing, and many religions use white as a symbol of spiritual purity. It’s also widely associated in many cultures with the quality of cleanliness. It’s therefore always a good choice for a space clearing ceremony. You can’t go wrong with white.

When to use a white colourizer
There’s no need to use a white colourizer if you’re using a white altar cloth. This would be an unnecessary duplication. But you can certainly use a large or small white colourizer with an altar cloth of a different colour if purity, clarity or simplicity is just one of the focuses of the ceremony you are doing.

For example, if your main focus is prosperity and you need to gain more clarity about how to improve your financial situation, an excellent choice would be a purple altar cloth to bring in the frequencies of prosperity and empowerment, with a white colourizer to highlight the frequency of clarity.

Purple altar cloths & colourizers

Purple altar clothPurple space clearing altar clothsPurple altar cloth close-upPurple colourizersAn altar is used in space clearing to create a symbolic representation of the focus for the ceremony and an anchorage for the frequencies of change it is designed to bring about. This increases the effectiveness of the ceremony enormously.

Altar cloths are available in a range of colours. This article explains how purple is used.

About purple
Purple is used in space clearing ceremonies to anchor the frequencies of prosperity and empowerment.

Of course laying a purple cloth or colourizer on an altar doesn’t magically make money drop into your lap or make you feel more self-assured. But what has been observed time and time again is that taking the time to get clear about your focus for the space clearing ceremony and creating an altar that symbolically depicts this very much increases its effectiveness.

These hand-woven Balinese altar cloths and colourizers, created with an intricate weave of metallic gold thread, provide the best anchorage for these frequencies in the context of the ceremony. They are also extraordinarily beautiful to touch and see.

They are made by the most highly skilled weavers in Bali, and it takes 20 full days to make a large purple altar cloth, and 12 days to make a small one.

When to use a purple altar cloth
The primary use of a purple altar cloth is when prosperity or financial issues are the main focus of a space clearing ceremony. It’s also a good colour to use when you need to boost self-esteem or emphasize personal empowerment, particularly if you’re facing a situation where you need to take control of your life and make some decisions.

When to use a purple colourizer
If the creation of wealth or boosting self-esteem is a consideration but not the main focus for a ceremony, it is best to add it to the altar in the form of a colourizer rather than an altar cloth. It can also very helpful to include on an altar if you’re the kind person who has trouble saying “no”, or who tends to put other people’s needs before your own, sometimes to your own detriment.

Is decluttering a sacred ceremony?


I’ve heard there’s a new trend in the UK for creating decluttering ceremonies.

Apparently what happens is that instead of just sorting through your stuff and heaving bagfuls of it out of the door, you light some candles, play some lovely music, and generally try to convince yourself the whole process is sacred in some way. At the end of the session you burn a line of candles next to the wall to magically remove “dead energy” from the clutter-cleared area.

Oh dear.

For a start, burning candles near walls is not a space clearing technique. The only tangible effects of doing this are likely to be black candle soot smudges up the walls and wax drippings on the floor.

And while clutter clearing can be hugely transformational because you are letting go of the old to make room for the new, in my experience the most effective approach is a practical, down-to-earth, roll-up-your sleeves one, with the grit and determination to get the job done. Some people find they can do this better with some music playing, but it needs to have an upbeat rhythm that will keep you moving, not sweet little melodies that will sooth your soul.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all in favour of anything that makes clutter clearing more enjoyable and fun. People who follow the systems I teach report that their whole approach to clutter clearing changes and it becomes a treat they genuinely look forward to rather than a chore that has to be done.

But trying to make a sacred ceremony out of it is a hopeless cause. The low level stagnant energies that accumulate around clutter keep you a world apart from anything sacred. Lighting a few candles, however sincere your intention, is not going to suddenly change that.

Levels of Consciousness
So where does clutter clearing fit in the scheme of things?

A useful calibration that I teach to the space clearing practitioners I train is a scale of Levels of Consciousness, where Level 7 is the lowest level that human life can sink to and Level 1 is the most exalted state of enlightenment that can be attained. The activities of everyday life are at Level 6, whereas humans are designed to live at Level 5 and above. Experiences of the truly sacred begin at Level 3, and are very far removed from what most people will ever come into contact with.

The numbers assigned to these levels have not been randomly picked out of a hat. They are derived from decades of exploration of spiritual realms and human consciousness, interwoven with the study of how space clearing can raise the energies of a space to facilitate higher levels of engagement.

How this relates to clutter
One of the main reasons that clutter is such a problem for anyone seeking more meaning in their life is that it keeps you in the mundane environment of Level 6. I would go so far as to say there is no point in doing any kind of self-improvement work at all unless you have cleared your clutter first.

And will clutter clearing automatically move you up to the realms of Level 5? No, it’s not that easy. Not by a long way. But it is the first essential step towards a life that is not encumbered by material possessions, which can open the door to an awareness that there can be more to our earthly existence than living at Level 6.

How this relates to space clearing
Clutter clearing is one of the preparatory steps of the space clearing ceremony I have developed, which is specifically designed to raise the atmosphere of a space from Level 6 to Level 5. How effective this is depends on a number of factors such as the skills of the person doing the space clearing, the equipment they use, their ability to follow the prescribed steps exactly, and so on.

When conducted by one of the expert space clearing practitioners I have trained, the ceremony can achieve Level 4 or even Level 3 results on rare occasions, at which point it becomes as much about opening spiritual insights for the occupants of the home and as it is about purifying the energies of the building itself.

The results of space clearing are not permanent, of course (the ceremony must be regularly repeated to maintain high level energies of the space), but I include it here because it offers a very tangible experience of some of the higher levels I have described, and sometimes even a glimpse of what sacredness really is.

Is it OK to space clear while pregnant?

Pregnant woman

I keep getting asked this question and am always glad when people take the time to check because the answer is most definitely – NO.

It definitely is NOT OK space clear when pregnant, or when breastfeeding for that matter. It’s fine to do physical clutter clearing, which is one of the preparatory steps for space clearing, but not the whole 21-step space clearing ceremony. This is clearly explained in my book, Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui, but somehow some people miss this information when they read it, or try to do space clearing without reading the book at all.

If human babies were hatched from eggs like chickens are it might be a different matter, because the egg shell provides a degree of etheric protection. But a baby in a womb is connected directly to the mother and is very etherically open and vulnerable. Everything that happens to the mother washes through it, and if the mother conducts a space clearing ceremony then she will be exposing the baby to energies that it is not equipped to handle.

Some of the space clearers I have trained have taken time out from professional work to have a baby, and they report that the same is also true during breastfeeding. Energetic residues from the stagnant energies that are cleared during a space clearing ceremony pass into the mother’s system and make her breast milk taste so bitter that most babies will refuse it for a few days until her body has processed it out. This can be very distressing for both mother and baby. So space clearing is also not recommended during breastfeeding.

Many pregnant women instinctively feel the urge to clean, tidy and prepare the “nest” as the time of the birth approaches. My own mother told me that her waters broke when hanging new curtains, and I’ve heard many similar stories. Preparing for the birth of a baby is certainly one of the most important times to do space clearing so that the space is as energetically clean as possible. Particular attention needs to be given to the baby’s bedroom and other rooms in the home where it will be spending the most time.

So who can do the ceremony if the pregnant mother can’t? One option is for their partner to do it, if they have read my book and feel confident to do so. Or a professional space clearer can be called in – someone who has taken my training and maintained their skills. But beware of ‘cowboy’ space clearers, no matter how well-meaning, who offer their services without any professional training at all. They can seriously mess up the energies in your home.

It’s fine for a pregnant woman to be present during the setting-up stage of the space clearing ceremony (hand sensing, creating the space clearing altar and activating the flower offerings in all the main rooms of the home) and during the harmony ball process at the end. But she will need to step out of the building during the clapping and belling circuits, which is when the heavy duty clearing work is done.

One final note. With a home birth, it’s best to have a space clearing done both before and after the birth, because birth energies can be pretty chaotic. It’s usually only necessary to space clear the room that was used for the birth, not the whole home.

So what can pregnant mothers do themselves? Clutter clearing! Pregnancy is a wonderful time to cast out the old to make room for the new, and will really help to satisfy that nesting instinct.
