A breath of fresh air
September sees the start of spring, when the entire planet seems determined to renew itself. Everything, from plants to people, is refreshed and re-energised. Now is the time to clear space in your life for newness. Plant new seeds, wear new clothes, learn new things – and make a point of eliminating anything that clutters and clogs your life. Get stuck into those wardrobes and eliminate what you no longer need or wear. There is a freedom that comes from embracing minimalism. Less is more, as the saying goes.
De-saturate your space
Over time, the space you live and work in becomes saturated with the existing vibrations and there is no space for new energy to enter. Space clearing is essential to clear out old, stagnant energy and invite fresh, bright opportunities into your life.
Choose a day and time when you know that you will be undisturbed. Prepare yourself by taking a purifying bath with sea salt. See, sense and imagine yourself in a cocoon of protected violet light, maintaining a clear energy field, filtering out negative energy.
When you are ready to start the process, quietly observe each room and the feelings you experience. What do you notice as you sort through your possessions? Are you clinging to something because of a memory or the way you used to be? Eliminate anything that is no longer useful to you and your current lifestyle – if it no longer resonates with the core of your being, put it on the “give away” pile. Make a list of suitable charities – many, such as the local SPCA, will send a bakkie to collect your donations.
Space clearing tools
The following items are required for a complete space clearing:
1.) Several small tea light candles and holders, one for each main room
2.) Good quality incense, or space clearing spray
3.) Sea salt
5) One Quartz Crystal point PLUS a Smokey Quartz, Black Tourmaline and Rose Quartz pebble
Space clearing process
Begin by opening as many windows, doors, drawers and cupboards as possible.
Start at the front entrance, hold in your left hand a Smokey Quartz and Black Tourmaline in your right. Mindfully walk from room to room, breathing deeply as you focus on your intention to clear and energise your space. Imagine yourself surrounded and protected by pure light, saturating each room.
Returning to your entrance area, light as many candles as necessary, one for every main room, and place them safely in that space.
It is important to remain focused on your intention to disperse stagnant energy either by clapping your hands in the corners of each room or sounding singing bowls or bells. Light incense (or use a space clearing spray) and wave through the air from floor to ceiling, permeating the area.
Completing the inside of your home, walk through your space visualising pure white light. Using a Clear Quartz point, draw the infinity sign over doors and windows, sealing the process. Having created an environment that is positive and open to new beginnings, maintain regularly by lighting candles and burning incense. Play harmonious music to entrench the lightness.
Stand facing the East a metre away from the outside of your home, walk in an anticlockwise direction and sprinkle sea salt as you walk to dissolve negativity.
Return to the East. Now walk clockwise seeing your environment filled with loving, positive and prosperous energy. See specific hopes, dreams and aspirations being fulfilled, manifested and grounded as you are creating your future in the here and now. Write these hopes, dreams and aspirations on a piece of paper and bury it in a pot plant at your front door – place a piece of Rose Quartz on top of it.
Finally gather all your space clearing items, cleanse your gemstones in mild detergent and lukewarm water and place in the sun to dry. Keep them on a bedside table or desk to continue benefiting from the energies of the mineral kingdom.
Having completed the space clearing process, acknowledge the feeling of lightness created by taking the time, effort and energy to change your life, not only for yourself but those around you. Take a shower and feel wonderfully refreshed.
