Why It’s Good Idea to Clear a House, Room or a Space?

Why It’s a Good Idea to Clear a House, Room or a Space?

Have you ever gone into a house,  room or space and it just felt wrong?

This is because disharmonious energy is being held in this house, room or space.

On the end of the scale have you ever gone into a house, room or space and just felt at such peace and harmony?

I know I have in some holy places and in my Reiki Masters teaching room.

This is because this room was holding on to the harmonious energy and had probably had been deliberately cleared and filled with peace and harmony by the person that lives or operates there.

I say “disharmonious” because even though we as humans can experience this energy as “negative,” though it’s not necessarily inherently negative.

Animals, especially dogs & cats & horses, in my experience, can really tap into these energies and will not enter the space or shy away from it, if it doesn’t feel right to them.

All spaces have the capacity to hold energy and essentially all spaces do. Places can be like people, in that they can be in either a “good” or a “bad” mood.

I’m sure you’ve been in a mood yourself at times because something or someone put you in a bad mood. That negative frame of mind can be felt by others and your surroundings absorb that energy.

So if you are often in a bad mood the rooms you sit in will start to feel like the mood you are in the most.

I hope you have a practice or a spiritual or meditation technique to both keep yourself aware of these energetic fluctuations and to help you in releasing any negative patterns that you get into, and instead bring in positive, loving and healthy ones.

I’m sure you’ve have met people and maybe you’re one of them, who aren’t great at letting go of a bad mood and shifting their energy.

Moods aren’t actually things that happen to us, they are created by how we react to the circumstances around us, along with personality tendencies that we carry inside of ourselves.

We have a choice to either keep allowing and experiencing the moods or we can let it pass through and bring in positive energies instead.

House, Homes & Spaces are essentially the same.

There’s really no such thing as a bad space.

It all comes down to what has happened in the space, and how what has happened in the space has been processed by the space and/or handled by the humans who live in the space.

Just like people need to release the negative energy they’ve picked up, spaces need to have this same type of energy released.

Many spaces almost never hold onto disharmonious, or “negative” energies. For example, the beach and seaside are so attached to nature and the Earth, which has a constant flow of negative ions from the running water would simply convert, the disharmonious energies into harmless energies very quickly. I believe the Earth naturally converts naegative energy into unconditional postive love energy.

Of course, inside of a house or space with poor energy flow that has never, or rarely, has its space cleared, these disharmonious energies can build up really quickly and become stored in the space, in the fabric of the walls.

You will notice, especially if you are sensitive, you will start to feel fed up or anxious and go on to release even more of your own negative energies into the space,  which gets stored by the space. And it quickly becomes a vicious cycle.

This is like a person who never works on themselves and then finds it only takes a small “bad incident”, like someone cutting them up at the traffic lights, and it pushes them over the edge, in anger they give the finger and give chase, acting as badly as the person that cut them up. And so the spiral of attracts more negative things into their experience! like getting seen by a cop and arrested for poor driving!

Thankfully, just like a person who works on their spiritual development and learns how to release negative moods and cultivate positive ones, you can do the same for all of the houses, rooms and spaces in your life.

The easiest, simplest and most effective tool I’ve found for this is Reiki clearing energy.

When you use Reiki to regularly clear your house, rooms or space you can stop the build-up of negativity and bad energies.

When you fill all of the spaces in your life with the love and light of Reiki, it can help to foster a sense of love and peace, as well as support your health, and the health of your loved ones, on every level.

Recently my friend Ryan’s son Eddie wouldn’t go to sleep and often woke up in the night, so we sent some clearing energy to the room he slept in, and did that remotely, as he is in Zurich in Switzerland and we’re in the United Kingdom. And the next day he slept much better and almost all the way through, so we send clearing energy to his room on a regular basis to keep it in a positive state.

What Types of Spaces Do We need to Clear?

Your House & Rooms in the House

I suggest that you clear every room in your home, as well as your house as a whole, at least every 3-4 months.

Doing so on both of the equinoxes and both of the solstices can make a wonderful ritual and if you want to do more often, using the power of the full moons is a great time and reminder.

We spend a lot of time in our homes and energetic hygiene is just as important as physical cleanliness. In the same way that dust spiders collect in corners of the rooms, less than harmonious energy often collects in our homes from many sources.

Blessing a room, or all of the rooms in your house will help everything you do in that room or house to go more successfully. It will help all of the people who live there to get along more harmoniously and it will give everyone in the space a general sense of peace and clear calm.

It will make the space feel crisp and clear like the air at the seaside…..

It’s a good idea to bless any room in which you’ll be spending a significant amount of time, or in which you’ll be doing any sort of important activity.

So some other examples of spaces that it is really important to clear include:

Anywhere that people have released negative energy

Has a fight or disagreement recently occurred in a room in your house?

Even if you’re not sure, you know that all-too-familiar experience of walking into a room and feeling like you could “cut the tension with a knife.

This is because when people have a fight, they release negative energies from their auras.

After the fight has ended, and even if the disagreement was resolved in the end, those toxic energies can still linger in the space. This can lead to the people that come into the room feeling tense, stressed, anxious, fearful or even angry. When that happens, the chance of another misunderstanding or disagreement occurring is much higher than it would normally be.

Be sure to clear the space any time that any other type of stressful event has taken place.

Wherever the energy is stagnant

Do you have a holiday home that gets boarded up for months at a time?

Then clear the each of the rooms shortly after arriving.

Is there an area of your home where you don’t often go or where the air doesn’t move so well?

You can tell if it’s an area like this by the accumulation of the dust spiders, as though all of the other air in the home blows into that room and then just stops there.

Because they impact the energetic health of the entire home, spaces like this should be cleared regularly, even if you’re not planning to use them.

And if you’re planning on spending some time in one of these spaces, then clear it first.

Hotel rooms

Hotels, motels and rented lodging are often overlooked spaces that you would benefit from clearing. Usually, you’re just focused on beginning your holiday, but taking just a few minutes to clear your room or space can make a big difference in how your energy body, and thus your physical body, is able to adjust to being away from home.

Because hotel rooms serve as a constantly changing dwelling for a multitude of people, they can contain a lot of unfamiliar energies that have been released by these guests. And since while you are sleeping, you are very open energetically, it just makes good sense to clear the space after you check in.

That way you can just focus on enjoying your stay!

So How Do I Clear A Space?

Are you ready to go clear a room, or better yet, all of the rooms of your home? So there are a lot of ways to do this.

And here is just one super easy and very effective method that doesn’t require any tools except your intention Or ask us to come and do it or do the clearing from afar, as Reiki energy has no locational limits, it can be sent anywhere we desire…

Let’s begin!

Step 1:

Sit in the centre of the room.

First, draw the Reiki Power symbol on each of your palms.

Clap your hands together 3 times saying the sacred mantra silently to yourself with each clap.

Second, draw the Reiki Mental/Emotional symbol on each of your palms.

Clap your hands together 3 times saying the sacred mantra silently to yourself with each clap.

If you don’t yet have use of the Reiki symbols, then just intend to activate the Reiki flow.

Next, place one hand on your heart chakra and the other hand over your solar plexus chakra until you can feel the Reiki flowing strongly, usually for anywhere from 30 seconds to two minutes.

If you don’t yet practice Reiki, that’s okay. Instead, close your eyes and visualize white light at each of the steps, Intend that the space will be cleared of any negative energy, and that it be filled with positive energy and love and light. Or ask us to do the clearing for you.

Step 2:

Pick one of the walls of the room with which you would like to begin. Then visualize a large Emotional symbol, followed by a large Power symbol, on it.

Or you can draw, using your hand, a large Mental/Emotional symbol, followed by a large Power symbol, on the wall in light.

Now, aim your palms at the wall and say to yourself, or out loud,

“I ask that Reiki clear this space of any negative energies, entities or vibrations the do NOT have unconditional Love for this space and it’s occupants.  May this room be filled with the love and light of Reiki.”

Now, with your hands still aimed at the wall, send Reiki to the wall for about 30 seconds to one minute, or until it feels done. You’ll know.

If you don’t like the statement I suggested, feel free to find one about clearing the space that resonates with you and then say it with clear intention, because that’s what really counts here.

Next, repeat this process with each of the other walls, followed by the ceiling and then the floor.

Step 3:

Once you have sent Reiki to the 6 surfaces of the room, then draw in light with your hand, or visualise, a large Emotional symbol, followed by a large Power symbol, in the centre of the room.

Once again, repeat your clearing intention.

Continue to channel Reiki into the entire space while visualizing the room filling up completely with the love and light of Reiki. You can do this for up to 10 minutes, or until the space feels clear and light to you.

How to Clear Your Entire Home

Now if you want to clear your entire home, just clear each individual room in the house by following the steps above.

Then, once the interior of the house is cleared, do the same steps for clearing a room, but for the whole home by focusing on each side of the house, and the roof and foundations, instead of walls, ceiling and floor of a room.

Lastly, visualise a large Mental/Emotional symbol, followed by a large Power symbol, going all the way around the outside of the home and the gardens, clearing the entire space.

Congratulations, you have just changed the energy in your home and it’s now a peaceful, crisp, clear and a special space that you and others will feel and Love to be in.

Much Love
