What Energy Clearing Is, and Why You Should Do It
Yesterday, I spent 40 minutes clearing the energy in our house, and now the whole place feels lighter and happier.
If this sounds crazy to you, I hope you will stick around and let me tell you what that means, and not just run away thinking I’ve lost my damn mind.
What energy clearing is
It’s an intentional process to get stuck energy moving. There are lots of methodologies to to do it, and we will be talking about them a bit more next week, in advance of the 5-Day Energy Clearing Challenge that we are hosting the week of August 19th.
How energy attaches to your space
Let’s start with the basics. You are a human being, composed of cells, which are made of molecules, which contain atoms, which are pretty much pure energy. So you are an energetic being. With me so far?
As humans, our thoughts and emotions shift the energy inside our bodies in different ways. Think about how heavy and sluggish you feel when sad, or how light and peppy you feel when super happy—your thoughts and emotions have influenced your own physical state, weighing your energy down or allowing it to expand. We share that energy with the beings around us (humans and animals), and with our space.
Also, as you probably already know, your energy can be influenced by other people’s energy. Think back to a day when you were in a pretty decent mood, then ran into a friend or coworker who was having a shitty day. After they told you all about it, your own mood and energy plummeted. Or think about the last time you were near a baby who was laughing hilariously (or watched one on the internet. Here. You’re welcome.)
The fact is that energy is all around us—in the molecules of air, water, and matter that make up everything in our world. And I don’t mean to freak you out, but your house is interacting with you—sopping up your energy the way you would a friend’s, and reflecting it back to you. And when it gets full of heavy or stuck energy, guess what it is reflecting back? That’s right. Stuck energy may be bringing you down.
What I did yesterday was to get all the stuck energy in my house moving again. Because circulating energy is healthy energy, and healthy energy is happy energy.
But first, let me tell you about my house.
I live with my husband and our cat, Kismet, in our rancher. It has three bedrooms, two of which spend most of their time as offices (his and hers). It has two bathrooms: one in the master suite, a term that means bedroom + postage-stamp sized bathroom + walk-in closet, and one located on the hallway that runs the length of the house. It’s got a laundry/utility room, a dining room, a kitchen, a living room, and an addition on the back that is my art studio. If you count the hallway (and I do), that’s 11 rooms or spaces within my house.
Clearing the energy in my entire house took about forty minutes.
I’ll go over the general steps in more detail next week, but suffice it to say that it involved a bit of tidying and cleaning, and a lot of energy-clearing actions, all of which are super simple. And it was fun, since I blared happy tunes and was dancing around my house from corner to corner.
Since then, my husband and I (and the cat, we suppose, though she is a bit sphinx-like about these things) have been enjoying a happier, more relaxed energy in the house.
If you are interested in clearing (some say cleansing) the energy in your house, we hope you will sign up for our 5-Day Energy Clearing Challenge! It will consist of seven emails (one each before and after the 5 days), a FB group, two PDFs (a single document plus a 3-page booklet), and a giveaway, which is pictured below (on the right). You can sign up for the challenge by clicking the image below and on the left, or by clicking HERE.
Finally, look for a bonus blog post this Friday, which explains how I got into energy clearing in the first place, and demonstrates why energy clearing is personal for me.
