The Blessing and Clearing of Space…..Cameron's Story
It is an elusive topic to say the least and one of my favorites. This time of year we think more of unwanted entities referred by the greater populous as ghosts. There is that….yes. When I clear space I feel like a mediator between the seen and the unseen. I represent both parties in the spirit of coming to agreements in an attempt at getting along. There are times when room mates, neighbors, friends and family of those who have passed just need an objective point of view to work through some snaggles. The Clearing and Blessing of space does't always mean firing the unseen and unwanted guests and insisting that they leave. There are times when beings on the other side need assistance in transitioning, there are times when they want to be heard and then willingly move on, and there are times when the energy in the space doesn't present as "un-embodied" at all, but has more to do with emotions and experiences that have taken place in the space or home. I asked on of my clients to write her story. In and of itself, writing is a very clearing activity and has the effect of clarifying and cleansing within the writer. So here I gratefully share with you ~
"I was in love with the home my husband and I bought last year....except for the basement. At first I chalked it up to new carpet fumes but the dizziness and generally toxic feeling I had when downstairs persisted through multiple carpet cleanings, vaccumings and constant open windows. Six months into ownership we got to know the previous owner of our home and learned that his family had had many happy memories here but also a few tragic ones that ultimately ended with divorce and much sadness. In fact, the room in which I felt most toxic had been home to a very troubled kid the family had taken under their wing for a short period of time. He had caused a lot of tension in the household and his presence was ultimately the catalyst for the couple's divorce.
After our meeting with the previous owner my husband and I both experienced a disconcerting sense of inhabiting someone else's story that we wanted no part of. It actually caused us to feel distant from each other and we both felt a bit ill. It also became clear that the previous owner was very attached to the house and the family happiness it had represented to him at one time.
It was recommended to me that my home needed a clearing badly and that I should call Elizabeth.
Treating my home like a Reiki client, Elizabeth gave it a long distance clearing and shared her findings with me on a beautiful recording. I learned so much from that recording I can't include all of my aha's but here are a few highlights: Elizabeth was able to feel that one wall had too much water in it and needed to be dried out. She did not sense the presence of mold. With some snooping I found that one of the interior concrete walls had mineral deposits seeping out which is a sign of too much moisture. Thankfully, Elizabeth appears to be correct about the mold, we still have not found any.
Elizabeth also did a clearing on my physical body and noticed that my right wrist was holding on to a sense of responsibility for other people's pain. Indeed, my right wrist had been bothering me and yes, I did have a feeling of wanting to "heal" the previous owner's family even though this was so far beyond the scope of my responsibility or capability. In addition, Elizabeth offered a number of easy recommendations such as getting a dehumidifier, keeping interior doors open and using essential oils in order to uplift the basement. She emphasized the importance of energetically "claiming my space" and knowing that my home would rise to meet my vibration if I could hold steady. I am happy to say that I can finally fully inhabit all 1700 square feet of my home without reservation. My dizziness is gone, my family is happy, and the basement is warm, dry and smells good. I fully plan to have Elizabeth here for an on-site clearing before we need to use the room in question for a second child."
