Have you ever entered a home where you immediately felt light and uplifted? Or have you had the experience of walking into a room where the very atmosphere left you feeling depleted and drained? Have you noticed how a room feels after an argument has taken place? Did you sense the tension and heaviness there?
All of these responses can be explained in terms of the energy of environments. Every space has energy. Your home is not only a composite of materials assembled for shelter, but also every cubic centimeter of it – whether solid or seemingly empty space – is composed of infinite flows of energy.
When you enter a space that makes you immediately feel light and uplifted or walk into a room where the atmosphere leaves you feeling depleted and drained, you are responding to the energy of the environment. Sometimes energy in a home or office can become stagnant and dull. When this is the case, you may feel tired and listless or become agitated and angry.
When you cleanse and purify the energy in your home, it becomes a sanctuary – a retreat from the discord of the world, a place of refuge and protection. It becomes an anchoring point from which you venture out into the world and as well as being a welcoming abode for your return. A home that has been cleansed and blessed is a home that is safe to be yourself, a place to embrace your joy, and explore your pain. Space clearing can turn every inch of a home into a sanctuary of sacred space that nurtures the soul.
About Your Chi
Where intention goes, energy flows. The more chi (inner energy) you have, the more powerful your space clearing will be. When your chi is flowing, you can project your intention into a space magnificently and gracefully.
An exercise to activate this unseen, yet very real inner life force is to imagine that you have a ball of energy in your hands. Slowly move this energy ball around. After a while you should feel an increasing sensation in your palms. This is your chi increasing. A visualization to project your will into a space is to imagine that your body is a sacred vessel through which vast, loving energies of the universe are pouring through your hands and into your home.
Using Mudras to Dispel and Activate Emotions
Using mudras is one of the ways to shift the energy in your home by dispelling or activating certain emotions. Traditionally, mudras, which mean “seals” or “signs” in Sanskrit, are devotional hand gestures used in many cultures across the world for a variety of purposes, including healing, yoga and martial arts. They were used to deepen the energy of an individual and used to bless and seal the energy in a room. Today, we use mudras to implant and seal healing qualities into a living space. Mudras work well in space clearing because through them you can channel energy flows of the universe through your fluid movements in a powerful way because you are using your body as the tool. Just as mudras are used to align elements and energy within the body, they can be used to do the same in a space. Combining these specific body movements and gestures with essential oils creates powerful shifts of energy in any space. You can also use these mudras to release or activate an emotion or a pattern of energy.
What You Must Do Before A Space Clearing
It is essential that you become very certain about what you hope to accomplish in a dwelling and that you:
• Get rid of piles of magazines you will never read.
• Transplant or throw out plants that are dying or dead.
• Repair or toss anything that has been broken for a long time or has parts missing.
• Do a thorough cleaning.
• Vacuum the rugs, mop the floors, wash the windows.
• Open the windows wide to allow sunshine and fresh air to fill your home.
All of this will contribute to making your space clearing more potent.
Deep within each of us is a longing for home. We yearn for a place of comfort where we can be ourselves, where we can realize our dreams. Make your home a sanctuary of soothing abundance and health by using the wisdom and techniques of ancient civilizations and cultures all over the world.
