I’m so excited about helping everyone make space that’s wider, brighter, and more clear. What I mean by this: the less interference and the less blocks you have, the more you’ll thrive.
If you’re sticking in the same patterns, you can clear more space and expand. If you’re feeling like a shadow or a bad mood or a problem is sticking to you, clearing more space can make it so much better!
Everything I do in feng shui is very practical: We shift the inside and the outside. You change your energy (on the inside) and you take action (in everyday life on the outside), and the synergy is super-spectacular!
Making space is the step before all big changes on the inside and outside. Whether it's cleaning house or clearing energy patterns, creating more clarity makes the actions you take far more pointed and meaningful. That clarity makes the the difference between targeting a problem directly and treating symptoms of a problem to find relief. The more clarity you have, the more you can get to the heart of things.
And that’s amazing! Let’s get into some space clearing today on a much more subtle and powerful level than ever before.
Simple clearing: If you’re looking to do some great, big freedom-making, having less in your space is typically best, so always dump the clutter. Clutter is a magnet for bad vibes.
I have some books staring at me to be removed from the shelves and donated today; they’re taking up space and they’re creating a bit of a haze where I can be so much more clear. Do something easy like taking out the trash, and your space is instantly more clear. Even if it’s hard to clear, you can do it!
Smudging: You’ve likely heard about burning sage, and how it can clear the space of lingering stagnant energy, stress, and those bad vibes you can’t quite shake. So, yes, a bundle of white sage burned is always fantastic, with all the windows open.
Stagnant water clearing: You can add a few drops of palo santo oil to your toilet (where water is stagnant) and/or gently crumble a tiny bit of your sage wand in the water and close the lid. In this way, the stagnant water will become a magnet to pull negative energy out of the space rather than just collecting stagnant energy.
Floral awesomeness: Yellow flowers are the best for sunshining golden energy. Roses or sunflowers are my favorites. Or try multicolored flowers, which can enhance the streams and flow of positive vibes in your home.
A magnetic bowl of negative vibe clearing: Where things feel really murky or depressed in your home, try a bowl of water filled with a cup of Epsom salt and a few drops of a clearing essential oil like sandalwood or frankincense left in the space to collect negative juju like an air freshener would. If you don’t have essential oil, chopped up lemons and a bit of a crumbled sage wand can work. When I make these, I only leave them for a day or so and then I pour them down a drain with gratitude.
Here’s the summation of all space clearing: You can feel when you’ve got more clarity. And you can feel when you’ve got blocks or you’re stuck or limited in some way.
