2021 Oct 12 — House Clearing Basics
Last week we learned to cut cords to build our energetic defenses. This week we learn how to clear or renew the energy of a home, office or other space where negative energies may have accumulated. In fact, it’s a good idea to clear your own house or personal space on a regular basis.
Always begin by opening sacred space. Clear your heart and your mind, then spread your wiracocha around yourself and the space. Call on the four directions to help you bring beauty, joy, and healing to the space.
Light a candle. I always work with the element of fire—you want to combust and metabolize energies, and fire does exactly that.
Always leave at least one window or outer door open to give whatever you might encounter a way out.
Sometimes I start by making a small offering of wine or alcohol. Intrusive entities have very low consciousness and are attracted to the pleasures of the senses. I invite any wandering entities to come slake their thirst, then I take the alcohol outside the space I am clearing—the unwanted entities follow me right out the door.
Allow your sage smudge stick to burn until it smolders. Keep a seashell or dish handy to catch hot ashes. Smudge yourself first, then methodically walk around the house counter-clockwise, allowing the smoke to spread throughout. You can pray as you work, or simply stay focused and connected to your breathing.
Last week we used feathers to connect to nature and cut cords, this week you can use your feathers to scoop negative energy out the door, making room for beauty and sweetness. Pay attention to tight spaces and corners, where stale energy tends to accumulate. Sweep smoke into these spaces with the feather—and scoop negative energy out. Don’t forget the garage, closets, and bathrooms.
If you encounter a stubborn or unpleasant entity speak to it firmly, but kindly. Explain that it can’t stay there—the space belongs to someone else, and you are there to help it go home. If you have an extraction crystal use it to attract the entity. To it a clear crystal is like a welcoming luminous cathedral, and it wants to enter it. Once it’s in there, it will stay there until you are able to release it.
To do that, take the crystal out and away from the space. Call upon the four directions and the lineage of the Pampa Mesayok to take the entity home where it belongs. When the time is right, blow a strong puff of air over the crystal with the intent of vacating it.
When your work is finished, walk around the house clockwise with a burning palosanto stick to or other beautiful essences and invite in sweetness and beauty. Then, smudge yourself again, close sacred space and step outside to let the energies you set in motion get to work.
Are you ready to clear or renew the energy of your home or office?
