For part one: A Feng Shui Haunting in Long Island
I had chills just being NEAR that room. Although he had tried his best to clean it, you could see bits of tin foil, towels, boards and apparently anything else she could find to try to avoid the cameras she was sure were "spying" on her. She was truly very ill.....her clothes and personal items remained and were scattered about. My client explained that she now lived in an apartment and could not fit her things. She also did not take the medicine prescribed for her.
Clearly, this man was very torn. In his Country, he told us, it is forbidden to divorce for ANY reason. Yet he felt he had to protect his child. He took the child every week for a visit but had not seen much improvement in his soon to be ex. It was heartbreaking listening to him.
We climbed up to the next floor which had just two rooms---and that bathroom that had been "sealed" to protect against all the prying eyes. Upon reaching the landing, there was a door; I thought perhaps because it was an older home it had been put in but noticed it was an unusual place for a door.
We next entered what was formerly the master bedroom...with the door that "made noises" of opening and closing and sometimes pounding....and her things were everywhere in THIS room as well. He needed to move on somehow and although she didn't have space, he had to remove her items from the home. It felt as if she were still there-and all around him. He looked so sorrowful but realized I was right.
We went into his child's room next and it was an oddly shaped room. We began to rearrange some of the furniture. His child had no headboard but instead just a window behind him. There was nothing to back him up. I found It interesting to hear that his son did NOT hear the noises although he was fearful in the home and would not stay alone in a room. I offered other suggestions for things to change and thought his son should help him and have a say in his territory.
Turning around to go downstairs my client closed the doors behind him. That's when WE heard it-the door opening. We were stunned and turned so fast---and saw nothing. The door hadn't moved. Not an inch. I went back to open that door wondering WHAT it was-and walked back through both rooms. On my way back out I noticed his son had a small crawlspace that I hadn't seen and asked permission to open it.
The door opened easily and we saw MORE storage of his mother's things left behind. I STILL didn't know what it was but knew this energy was powerful. I asked him to remove that as well-as soon as he could and he agreed.
I did several forms of space clearings for this home, making sure not to miss anything and asked my client to participate as well which he did. I asked him to call me as I have had to go back on several occasions when the energy is as strong as in his house. He looked so sad that we were leaving but I reminded him that while I wasn't sure what was in his home, I felt it was his wife's energy that had remained behind.
I was NOT expecting a call early the next morning-very early. With one happy man who told me it was THE FIRST NIGHT IN THREE YEARS he had NOT heard noises and slept the night through. I was thrilled but cautious....not being sure exactly what it was, I didn't know if it would return.
He kept in touch with me for a very long time and was so grateful. The lights didn't flicker anymore and he reported that he slept well EVERY night - which enabled him to get to work earlier and get HOME earlier to spend more time with his son.
His last phone call was to let me know he was taking his son away on vacation, had removed the last of her things left behind and felt like a "new person." I learned so many lessons from this consultation, one being that while I always think of Predecessor Energy, I had not realized how strong it could be with someone who was unstable.

When moving, please CLEANSE your homes. Do it again if there is a life changing event. Put your intention into it, use Sage, Sound or one of the other methods but DO IT.
