From time to time I receive an email that says: ‘Much though I would love to, I cannot afford to buy a Balinese bell. Can I use a different type of bell to do space clearing instead?’
Why Balinese bells are the most effective
I really do appreciate that Balinese bells are more expensive than mass-produced bells such as Tibetan bells. That’s because of the purity of the metals used to create them, the skill involved in making them, and the time it takes to produce them. Handcrafted items are always more expensive than mass-produced.
But they are totally worth it and I’m thankful they exist in the world. I would never have started teaching space clearing publicly if I hadn’t discovered them. It takes a full month to create a space clearing bell, and there are only a handful of Balinese craftsmen and women skilled enough to make them. That’s why they cost a bit more.
Without doubt, a highly quality bell is the most important piece of equipment needed to conduct a space clearing ceremony. If you use a lesser quality bell, the results you’ll get are unlikely to inspire you to ever do space clearing again. Your first time will probably be your only time.
Balinese bells are the only type I have ever found that are so effective at clearing stagnant energies in buildings and, depending on the skill of the person, can also be used to wilfully shatter astral imprints too. I’ve tested hundreds of other kinds of bells in my travels around the world and none have even come close.
The level of craftsmanship skills in Bali is extraordinary. The island is, after all, the purification centre of the planet. And the family of master bell-makers I work with produces the highest quality bells in Bali, and has done for hundreds of years. I’ve really done my homework on this.
Why Balinese bells are the safest
When I wrote my first book, Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui, I was very mindful of the various types of perverse energies that can be found in some buildings, so I included clear guidelines to minimize the possibility of people picking any of these up while doing space clearing.
So this is another reason why, in all honesty, I cannot advise anyone to ‘save some money and have a go with just any old bell’. I have a responsibility to make sure that people have the right equipment to do the job safely, and Balinese bells are the only ones I have ever found that have this. The truth is, I would not have written my book at all if I had not discovered bells of this calibre that people could use to do space clearing in their own home.
