I recently shared this great technique with a client and thought, “hey, let me post this on my website so more folks can benefit from it”….
We have all had the experience, one time or another, of stepping into a room that feels, well, yucky. You can’t put your finger on why, but it just feels awful standing in that space; perhaps it’s beautifully appointed, nice and clean, filled with art and flowers, yet you can’t wait to step out of that room. Chances are, something emotionally unpleasant happened in that space and what you’re feeling is the energy that still lingers there. Of course it feels yucky! Conversely, a room can also feel unpleasant if the energy in it has gone stagnant, dead, flat.
Many years ago, when i was a Feng Shui consultant, I used many different kinds of space clearing rituals to rid homes and businesses of dark, heavy energy. Eventually I settled on just one technique because I found it consistently gave the best results everywhere I used it. It’s very simple, and also very effective and powerful, and requires very few props/tools.
- several small, fire proof metal bowls, found at all indian groceries or any store with a good kitchen department
- something fire proof to set the bowls on, like a brick or silicon pot holder
- 91% rubbing alcohol (not 70%)
- epsom salt
Put approximately 2 Tbsp of epsom salt in the bottom of your small metal bowl, drench the epsom salt with rubbing alcohol. Make sure your hands are dry, set the bowl on the fire proof holder and put a flame to the bowl…. Shazam!! Let the fire burn itself out; as it does so, it rids the room of all dark, heavy energies and leaves the space sparkling with light. You may need to use several little bowls in a large or particularly heavy room to get the best results, but this technique always gives excellent results.
