Get Rid of the Funk: How To Clear Your Space for the New Year

By Monita Baker

You’ve done the physical cleaning of your home to prepare for the New Year now it is time to do the energetic cleaning.

What is energetic cleaning?

While feng shui balances and empowers a space, Space clearing through blessing and ceremony clears the negative energy and resets the space with a more harmonious energy and feel.

A space clearing or blessing can transform those defeatingenergies that may be affecting you negatively. A clearing is especially recommended if tragic events have taken place in the home or office.

Everything all around us is energy. Your home and belongings absorb energy both positive and negative. As energy tends to accumulate it can cause disharmony, not just in your physical space but also in your life.

When the energy of a space becomes stale and stagnant it can also become Toxic.

Anger, fear and emotional outbursts can linger in a space causing blockages.

This blocked energy can show up as:
  • fatigue, conflict in relationships
  • sleep disorders
  • mental and emotional stress
  • health issues
  • forgetfulness
  • negative thinking
  • headaches/migraines
  • business problems
  • lack of progress
  • blockages of creativity

When we clear the energetic blockages << Test First Name >>, we open ourselves to:

  • increased energy,
  • improved health,
  • better relationships,
  • mental and emotional clarity,
  • overall positivity

A space clearing/blessing ceremony is one of the best techniques to notice an immediate shift in your environment.

Some Clearing/Blessing Tool Essentials that I use in my practice include, but are not limited to:

  • Candles are an expression of the element of fire and invokes the energy of purification and inspiration.
  • Herbs such as sage, cedar, lavender and sweetgrass have long been used to purify the energy of a space. The herbs represent the earth energy and when burned, the smoke is the air. The smoke absorbs the negative energy and carries it away we can refer to this as an “environmental healing”.
  • Resins such as Copal, frankincense, myrrh and dragons blood are also use to purify and sanctify a space.
  • High quality natural incense is a quick way to freshen up your space while calming the energy.
  • Essential oils like lavender, eucalyptus and mint are also powerful space clearing tools.
  • Music and Sound have a profound influence on the energy and mood of a space. Shift your energy using bells, singing bowls, gongs or drums
  • Crystals have specific energies and in a feng shui blessing ceremony utilizes the specific qualities of the stone to clear the space.
  • Fresh flowers have a very high vibration and bring the energy of harmony, joy and aliveness to any space as well as feeling of happiness and calm.

As a space clearing refreshes the energy in your home or office by removing blockages and transmuting negative energies; a blessing ceremony is a beautiful ritual that brings your space into harmony with your goals.
