To understand the art of Space Clearing, we must first realize that space clearing is not part of Traditional Feng Shui. Space Clearing is an ancient form of ritual that has been present in almost all cultures of the world and traditionally involves the use of water, salt, herbs, incenses, fire and sound to raise the energetic vibrations and purify the atmosphere. It is a ritual of blessing and consecrating a dwelling for the occupants. If we depart from the idea that our psychical world is formed by Chi (energy) vibrating at different rates of speed and forming different realties that may be created by our thoughts, ideas and emotions, then we are able to understand that everything around us is composed by a vibration rate which many times cannot be perceived by our psychical reality. Emotions and ideas are energies in motion vibrating at different frequencies. Although we cannot see these vibrations with our eyes, they are all around us.
Just like the signal of our cellular phone or the sound of a dog or a dolphin, we can hear beyond the range of the human capacity to hear these vibrations that are not normally perceived by us. Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, we are all influenced energetically. If a person who is constantly sad and upset lives in a space, that space starts to absorb part of that sadness –upsetting energy. Therefore, we can define space clearing as the art of clearing stagnant Chi or dark energy and transforming the vital Chi through and around structures to an optimum level. This type of ritual allows us to remove and clear out old residues of past feelings and emotions that may have been built up from previous habitants or after periods of sickness, divorce, bankruptcies etc. This stagnant Chi can be easily found attached to walls, furniture and statues. We can find high amounts of stagnant Chi in corners and dark rooms. The accumulated energy affects the flow of Chi within the dwelling and within the lives of the occupants. It is important that we do not confuse Space Clearing with other types of rituals that are associated with spiritual clearing or rituals related to the removal of spiritual entities from dwellings and people’s auras. This type of ritual is mainly concerned with disembodied souls that may attach themselves to the dwelling and on certain occasions even to a living person without their awareness. These entities may feel trapped in between dimensions and become earthbound. Many times they are not aware that they are dead and need assistance in finding the light. To help these spirits to become aware of the situation and make the cross over to their next level of advancement in a calm way, we require the assistance of those with expertise on these matters. The ritual of space clearing raises and revitalizes the energies as well as improves the Chi creating a shift in the vibration of the space. The effects of space clearing are infinite, being one of the most powerful rituals for clearing, purification and harmonizing energies in psychical spaces and lives. This allows us to re-energize the space and gives a person a brand new start.
