Energy Clearing for your Home

I helped a friend “clear” her empty, new apartment today that she is about to move into.  These spaces contain the “energies” of previous owners/renters and of their ancestors and even their enemies (especially the homes that sit vacant or empty for lengths of time). and I thought I would just write a HOW-TO for anyone else who wants to remove negative energy from their living environments.

Materials Used:
White Sage smudge stick
White candles (I use three)
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
Essential Oils (Fighting Five, Grapefruit, Cinnamon, Clove)

First, open all doors, windows, drawers and cabinet doors.  Stagnant energy must be able to freely flow out of corners and out of the room/house.

Set your intention to remove negative energy and to seal the space with love and light.  Light your candles.

Light the smudge stick and move it in circles around your body from head to toe, making sure you get smoke under arms, between legs, and on bottoms of your feet.

With lighted smudge stick walk around each room making sure each of the corners and niches are infiltrated with smoke.  Blow the smoke around the entire house, walking in circles around each room to ensure complete coverage.  Smudge each room, closet, bathroom, cabinet, etc.  This is a lengthy process but if you are thorough it will be well worth it.

This is where I like to drum or use clapping to assist in breaking up and moving stagnant energies.

Once you have covered the entire house, take your sea salt and sprinkle it along each threshold of each exterior door and along the window sill of each window.  Close them as you cover each one.  I like to say a binding intention as I close each door/window regarding the complete sealing of the space and the elimination of all negative forces now and in the future.

Go back to each door and window and sprinkle essential oils where you put sea salt.  If you wish, sea salt and essential oil coverage can be completed in the same step. Caution: oils may stain or damage certain surfaces.

Notice the difference as you walk around your home, now free of the muck that zaps your energy and lowers your overall life quality.  Enjoy!

The Exit Strategy & Writing on the Fly…

Before incarnating into this lifetime, our Higher Self creates a Master Blueprint for this lifetime.  Many times this is done with the collaboration of a Soul Mate or a Soul Group, those who are agreeing to assist or interact with us when we are on the Earth.  Along with certain karmic missions to be completed while we are alive, we may also plan our Exit Strategies, or the specific way we agree to leave the physical body, or to die.

Last year I experienced the event that I believe now was my planned exit strategy.  I had a natural ascension of the spirit from my physical body while my dear friend sat with me in possible preparation for my passing.  My friend was what I call a Soul Mate, and had experienced the death of her ultimate love partner and of her best friend during the first two decades of her life.  As I realized I was really preparing to leave the physical plane, and that meant I would be leaving her sitting with the third death of an important person in her life, something made me change my intention at a moment’s notice.

I believe that from that point forward I have been “living on borrowed time” and writing my life’s destiny “on the fly.”  It’s as if my Soul Mate and I who had decided to experience my natural ascension made a non-verbal agreement at that moment to modify the end of our journey together here in this lifetime.

While my friend was very concerned that she had perhaps somehow messed up my right to die, or something like that, and I do admit I had concerns as well about how and when I would be leaving the earth finally.  My childhood religion had told me I had the benefit of a Rapture if I stayed faithful and did good works.  I did seriously believe that I had waived my painless dignified religiously-approved exit from this lifetime because of my concern about leaving her enduring the emotional pain of losing yet another loved one to death, in her actual presence in this instance.  I wanted to save her from enduring that pain, and made a split-decision to “try again later” when she wasn’t going to have to watch.

The reason I was leaving in the first place is because my useful time here was expiring.  I had done what I came to do, or so I thought, and my near-death experience seemed to substantiate this.  Needless to say, if you can learn something new every day in one’s normal life, imagine the urgency and creativity that can be employed when one realizes that each new day is one more than was originally allotted in the blueprint. 

In eight months of spilled milk – or time since I first planned on checking out – I have realized some profound truths which have allowed for great transformational fundamental growth of my soul, in terms of evolution.

DEATH: It was really exciting coming out of my body, which itself appeared to be cold, old, and losing all energy.  While I could not speak or write due to slowed motor function, my mind was very sharp and active.  I was alert and aware of my consciousness separating from my body, and was not scared at all.  It was painless and seemed like a seamless transition based on what I was comparing to other stories about near-death or out-of-body experiences that I had heard previously.

RELIGION: My upbringing in the Christian church provided much beneficial guidance for how to live life with a connection to God.  However, by nature, subscribing to one of the world’s religions also limits one’s beliefs by creating bias and establishing parameters for how we think about spiritual life.  Christians do not believe in successive phases of death-like transitions during life, or in reincarnation.  My experience was life-altering, in terms of expanding my view of how consciousness transcends the body, space and time.

SOUL FAMILIES:  Examining my feelings and the meaning of what it meant for me to make a compassionate decision which changed my game-plan last minute for a friend really made me think about the decisions and agreements we make during the time spans between death-to-life.  We agree to go through difficulties to aid in the karmic repair or soul development of our chosen soul teams.

FREE WILL:  Although a pre-planned experience was expected, we were supported by the universe as we modified our plan of execution for moving through this event together.

LIFE PURPOSE:  Since this event occurred, my entire life concept has changed.  Subsequently, the types of opportunities that become available for me to open up to the world expand greatly.

To Judge or Not to Judge…?

My childhood religious training heeded the warning: “Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone,” reminding believers that we are not to judge the actions or choices of others.  God is the ultimate Judge, according to the Bible.  Our society has judges in our judicial system, and we also normalize the concept of judges with television gameshows like America’s Got Talent.  But the concept of Divine Judgement has me pondering a few things….

I strongly agree that, while it is natural for a human to reach mental judgements on many people/places/things in the course of a day, it is spiritually damaging to let your judgement (or discernment may be a better word) project outwardly onto a thing such that it is affected by that perceived judgement.  Not only can we be a factor that limits another’s opportunities for growth or success if we profess our opinion publicly, we may also limit our own opportunities to start or develop relationships by deciding that someone or some thing is one way, or another, with a condition which carries judgement.

Perhaps the more pertinent point is that our stance from which we pass judgement NEVER contains all of the information necessary to determine the REASON for the action or choice standing to be judged.  We can never know what someone’s past experiences are that create the inclination to act a certain way.  It is not feasible for us to have all of the information or knowledge that another may have when making decisions.  This suggests that we are never the best candidate for judging something relating to another’s internal experiences.  They are.


Yes, we do perceive our faults to be more obvious than others.  We do hold ourselves to standards that we would not consider applicable for others.  And we are more aware of our own imperfections than we note when we look at others.  While these criticisms deal with subjective qualities, we have rules, regulations, and laws by which to measure our status in other areas of life.  Aside from the random parking ticket or civil offense which can render a negative judgement based on “the books,” ultimately WE OURSELVES are the ultimate overseers of our righteousness as we inhabit the earthly plane.

Some may argue that Judgement Day is the Come to Jesus Day, and that a meeting with a Divine Source is in order, but from many people who have had near-death experiences, we hear that the Life Review phase of leaving the physical body is the equivalent of what many may call God’s Judgement.

As Divinely connected beings, our own Life Review is governed by higher ideals and universal principles.  It is actually our comprehensive assessment of how we as humans held up to the Divine Order of the Cosmos.  Even this process seems almost automatic to the part of ourselves which is cerebral and functions via decision-making and evaluation, or judgement.

Overall, the best judge of my character turns out to be me.  I have the most finely-attuned set of standards for myself, requiring me to take on zero toxic shame or guilt as I authentically express myself in everyday life.  One of my missions in this lifetime is to help others to see where they have taken on guilt or shame from a past judgement that someone else placed on them, and to show them understanding compassion where previously they had none.  This frees the soul of undeserved guilty feelings, and reminds us that we can never be the accurate Judge of anyone but ourselves.
