I did a house clearing on Saturday – getting rid of the negative energy the new purchaser had been experiencing. I had several interesting experiences of my own while on the way, where the outside light was several times blindingly bright and I couldn’t see. Then I misread my own writing and saw the address incorrectly, turned around and went the wrong direction. Then just stopped, breathed, and started again slowly. I noted all that confusion, and wondered if something was in the way.
The house itself is wonderful – I could see why she had fallen in love with its open and airy feel, the beautiful floors, all that wonderful autumn light streaming in. But she had felt negativity when she first looked at the house, and had continued to be bothered by it at every visit.
Not a ghost, exactly. In fact, the previous owner is still living, in a senior facility. My intuitive understanding / feeling of the situation is that his negativity, unfocused, had drawn in other negative energies, and that what the owner was picking up. She had even pinpointed the most ‘polluted’ part of the house.
We talked over her concerns first, then walked the house, first floor and basement, and walked outside as well. After that, we began the smudging, which is a wonderful tool for clearings. We walked counterclockwise through the house, and through each room, smudging doorways, closets, windows, chandeliers, all openings. We smudged the garage and the attic access in it. We entered the area of concern last, smudging even the electrical outlets, and all the electrical cords strung around all the pipes in the room.
The owner said she had felt the energy improve when we first lit the smudge, and that it got better as we worked with the healing smoke. I was a bit surprised, and glad, after the confusion of getting there, that there was no interference during our work.
I left her with a small smudge stick, as a souvenir or maybe for future need, and also gave her a small bag of clear quartz crystals, to be placed in drawers, corners, closets, as needed, to give the energy a boost and keep it clean.
A wonderful house, wonderful owner – and it was great to be able to restore peace in that place.
