As an energetically sensitive being, we may find ourselves affected by people, events and even spaces. Though subtle, we can often feel the shifts of energy which can bring us discomfort and unease. Practices clearing these spaces starts in our physical environment. When this physical container is clear, it allows the light of our soul to expand and create greater manifestations from within.
Feng Shui is an ancient practice of maximizing the energetic flow of a physical space. All things have Chi/Qi – a life force energy which is always in motion.
Paying attention to these trusted principles can help us be in more cooperation with the harmony of life around us. When we apply these methods, we may discover ease, joy, abundance and creativity is more easily able to find us.
Stagnation occurs when there is no flow. This stuck energy can feel like something is off, lethargy and simply being uninspired. When this blockage is allowed to fester, arguments, sickness, depression and loss of material wealth may result. The tensions will certainly mount if we do not pay proper attention to how energy is allowed to move around us. Feng shui space clearing is one practice we can engage to ensure the flow remains.
When to Clear Your Space
While routine cleansing should be a normal part of your home care, I like to also clear, charge and bless the home during significant moon phases like the Full and New Moons, during eclipses and at the holy-days. Each will give us a subtle reset which can program the energy of our space to resonate with our own intentions.
When matched with sacred days honored throughout time, we will get an extra boost in the form of blessings from the natural world. If we can match the vibration of clear intent with our personal goals, energies can more clearly manifest for us.
Anytime you feel unsettled in your space, this is a good indicator that feng shui space clearing may help. More obvious reasons could be a fight, a trauma or guests who may not match your frequency, which also offer an ideal time to clear your physical space.
Moving into a new home can be hectic, but merging with your new space so that it may be ready to hold all of you is also a must. Clear out the old tenants and introduce yourself to your home room by room.
And don’t feel like this ritual cleansing only applies to your home! Cars, offices and yards are carriers of energy and may need our attention from time to time.
Works spaces likewise are crucial as we all have tensions that arise at work. A little bit of feng shui clearing will help us be more focused, productive and at ease in this most important aspect of our lives.
In feng shui, salt can purify “negative” energy bringing the charge back to neutrality. Some people feel the new energy as clear, purified and clean. It can then hold and lift the intentions we set.
Let us acknowledge that just because something feels funky, it doesn’t necessarily equate to evil or “negative.” Rather it is simply a disruption that affects our energy fields.
Like a duck swimming in a dirty pond, the dirty water is not bad, it is just affecting the duck in ways that are not optimum for its well being. Energy is the same, to label it as negative or bad will only program it to be so. Energy is neutral, it’s subtle affect on us is where we can be patiently aware.
