 Try Not To Confuse The Meaning of Space Clearing With De cluttering

I recently wrote a blog post explaining What a Space Clearing. There were beautiful comments and short stories but I did notice some have confused Space Clearing with the physical action of de cluttering. Take out the physical discussion out of the conversation and just talk energy work, also known as metaphysical science. 

In essence you are working with the "unseen"world, which could also be refereed to as Spirit or source, or really any term that relates to the practice of faith you follow.  As shared in my previous post the art of Space Clearing has been practiced in ancient India, Egypt, China, Japan and in every native culture around the world since the beginning of time. 


Space Clearing is not de cluttering. By doing the action of de cluttering it will further enhance the benefits of receiving a Space Clearing, but they are separate in how they function.

Space clearing is a very effective tool especially in homes that have some negative energy looming.  I have a few friends who clear energies and you can tell the difference when you go back in the home.  There are many non-believers who can't even fathom the thought of energies in a home, but then they probably aren't living in a peaceful, harmonious environment.

I'm not that familiar with the process, but I visited a yoga teacher at her home once and I thought she had been smoking pot because she had just finished burning something to clear the space. It was quite funny when I found out what the smell actually was, LOL.

We had a listing once that a couple was interested in, but only if they could do a space clearing before writing an offer. They did, they were happy with the results and bought the house.
