Why You Need to Do Space Clearing?
Just before Chinese New Year, my family and I clean our entire house. Spring cleaning is practiced by people all over the world. It is usually something done in Spring time. Hence, the name – spring cleaning.
Do you do spring cleaning at your home? If you do, then you know what I mean. And you can understand the need to clean the house of dust and dirt. So that everything is like new again.
But what about clearing and cleaning energies that are old or unwanted or unwelcome or left stagnant in certain areas of your home? These negative energies can cause illness, bad luck, attract unwelcome spirits as well as many other forms of negativity in our lives.
Everything is simply made up of energy. And every space is capable of holding energy.
Energetically, anything that ever happens in a building is recorded in that space: the walls, the floor, the ceiling, the furniture, etc. It gets imprinted in the very fabric of any structure. Energies from repetitive patterns get deeply imprinted. That is why when good repetitive actions, such as meditation, are practiced regularly in a certain space, the energies of that space feels peaceful and calm.
On the other hand, any event accompanied by strong emotions or trauma is recorded more intensely. For example, the atmosphere in a room can become dense after there had been an argument in that room. It would be as if one could cut the air with a knife.
The residue of energy imprints can accumulate around the edges of a room. And it can build up, particularly in corners. It is interesting to note that many native cultures do not live in home with any corners; for example, the Native Americans, the Zulus, the Eskimos, etc. These people know that low energies can dwell in these corners, and get stuck there.
Children instinctively know, and some are able to sense these dark energies lurking in corners, spaces under the beds, in the closets, etc. This is why they avoid some places or cry when they are there. Sadly, in these modern times, the ancient practice of space clearing has been almost forgotten.
Take a moment to have a good look at the space in your home around you.
What would it look like if there had not been any housekeeping since you moved in? Lots of dirt and dust after a year, right? Now imagine the amount of energies accumulated over the years because they have never been cleared. There would be a lot of unwanted or unwelcome energies everywhere or lurking in rooms, corners and any other spaces in your home, right?
What is Space Clearing?
When I visit a place of worship, I can feel elevated feelings of peace and calm. How about you? Do you feel it too? This is because many of these sites are constantly purified by prayers, chants, rituals or some form of space clearing. And these spaces are kept at a high level of energy.
During times of high ceremonies, even more space clearing would be done, and done more often. This is to raise the energy levels even higher. So high that the energies in the area would enable some to experience enhanced states of being during these ceremonies or rituals.
Over a decade ago, I learned how to do space clearing from a shaman. It required a space clearing prayer and tools. Also, over the years, with practice I have gotten quite good at it. After every space clearing session, I found that the negative, unwelcome and unwanted energies departed from that space.
In addition, when you have done space clearing, you welcome new and good energies. Again, there is a space clearing prayer taught to me by the shaman teacher for this to happen. And with these new and good energies, you raise the quality of your life and experience, making it more meaningful, constructive and purposeful.
Why Do You Need to Do Space Clearing?
You would be surprised to find out that many people do not see the need for space clearing. I had my share of meeting such people.
After I explained the need, some of these people finally understood. Some remained unconvinced.
From those that understood, some did not take action. I do not know why. My guess would be their lives are going well, and they do not feel the need for it.
Finally, then there are the ones who understand the need, and they learn how to do it, what tools to use, etc. Click the image below if you would like to find out why you need to do space clearing.
Who Needs Space Clearing?
Everyone. Everyone needs space clearing. I need it. And you need it, too.
We are all made up of energy, and around our physical form we have energy fields that make up our aura. This too needs to be cleansed once in a while.
I also use the space clearing technique to cleanse auras: for me, for my parents, my dog, etc.
And so I use space clearing tools to cleanse my aura and the aura of my family.

Where Should You Do Space Clearing?
Everyday, you can accumulate a certain amount of psychic debris in your body and energy fields as you go about doing stuff in your life. You will bring these energetic debris into your home, and it can be dumped there.
Similarly, your everyday living can create physical garbage. You will need to tidy and clean your home regularly. Otherwise dirt, dust and clutter will fill your home. As you can see, space clearing too needs to be practiced regularly.
Another thing you should know is that very few modern homes are so well designed that there can be no areas where energy gets stuck. See all that furniture in your beautiful home? Well, these negative energies can get stuck there, and further heighten the problems.
How much negative or stuck energies build up in a place can also depend on the Feng Shui of the place, the activities of the people living in the place, people who visit the place, and even external forces that can invade or intrude into that space. Also, you need to consider energies left by previous occupants.
Space Clearing helps to clear out unwanted or unwelcome energies in your active space. These lower levels of stuck energy that hinder your progress in life. By doing space clearing you can remove these negative energies, and bring in beneficial, good and positive energies. The latter can help you improve all aspects of your life.
What are the Benefits of Space Clearing?
You can reap so many positive benefits from regular space clearing and energy balancing. First, and foremost you will feel light, joyful and at peace. Depending upon your specific situation and intention, you can also experience:
- Improved Sleep
- More harmony in relationships
- Better finances
- Better career
- Better health
- An increase in your energy levels
Other benefits include:
- Remove bad, unwanted, or unwelcome spirits from homes, buildings, offices, etc.
- Clears negative energies.
- Remove blockages from spaces
- Cleanse and purify people, spaces and objects (done for hundreds of years)
- Purification also gets rid of evil influences, bad dreams, bad thoughts and illnesses
What are the Tools for Space Clearing?
There are many space clearing tools available, and you have choices. Here is a list of some of the items that can be used for space cearing:
- Singing Bowls
- Essential Oils
- Hand Clapping
Of course, there are many more space clearing tools that can be used. The above list is just to mention some.
For more details about the tools that you can use for space clearing, click on the image.
One of the best tools, and my personal favorite, for space clearing is the Sacred White Sage Incense. I use this when I do space clearing for my home and office. And I also use it for my clients when they engage me to do space clearing for their spaces. I find it the most effective. If you are looking for any, I highly recommend the one shown below.
In addition, there is a proper way to do the space clearing. Also, you need to say the right words to have the divine beings and energies to assist you.
When Should You Do Space Clearing?
It is all up to you. As mentioned in the beginning of this article, you can do it before the New Year.
For me, I do it before Chinese New Year. And I also do it whenever I feel I would like to cleanse and raise the energies in my home.
Sometimes, I do it after something bad happens, or when someone in my family falls ill, or when I intuitively sense that the energies in my home are not quite right.
I am sure you would like to be careful, and know when you should do space clearing. Click on the image to find out more.
How To Do Space Clearing?
There are steps to do space clearing. My shaman teacher taught me how to do it correctly. And I will share with you the basic steps here. But, please know that while it is not a complicated process or difficult thing to do, I advise you research and learn more details before attempting it.
Of course, I will be writing a full and complete article about this in the near future. It will help you learn how to do space clearing step by step. Please do join my mailing list to get updates when I publish these articles.
For now, I will share the basic concept of space clearing. I will use the Sacred White Sage smudge stick as the tool for this example. Basically, you light up the smudge stick, and use the smoke from the incense to fill the spaces in your home. As mentioned above, as I do the space clearing, I will say a prayer taught by my shaman teacher. After it is done, I will then fill the entire house with good energies by bringing in Divine Love energies.

What Else Can You Do with Space Clearing?
Before I complete this article, I would like to share with you a few ideas on how to use space clearing.
Would you like to create a sacred space that you can use for your private prayers and worship? An area where you can do your manifestations? Or simply just a space for meditation? You can use space clearing to help you create that sacred space.
I have done it at holistic centres. I conduct meditation sessions, and I used space clearing to clean the rooms where the sessions are held. And everyone who attended my meditations have found that it helped them have better meditation and experiences.
Another use for space clearing is to clean your energy fields. Or aura if you prefer that term. I use space clearing to clean my aura regularly. And to remove any energy blockages.
You can also use space clearing to energetically clean things such as crystals or even your wallets.
If you own a crystal, I am sure you have heard that it needs to be cleansed once in a while or whenever required. I use space clearing techniques to clean all my crystals.
Each crystal has a purpose. But at the same time, it absorbs all kinds of energies. So, when people touch it. Or when it is exposed to a place where there are negative energies, it can weaken the crystal’s properties. Or worse, turn it into something bad.
There was one time when a psychic saw my collection of crystals and she was amazed how clean my crystals are (in her own words, she said that she has never seen crystals so clean). She was curious how I did it, and was more amazed when I shared with her that I use the space clearing technique combined with Divine Love Energies with Flowing Love Meditation.
For wallets, we put money into them. And we never know where the money came from, and what negative energies it may have. Always better to clean the wallet and its contents regularly. It can also enhance attracting money into your life.

This is awesome information and very informative. I do understand that the corners of a home collect many things, it always seems that is where the dust settles, so it just makes sense that energy will collect there as well. I am really looking forward to finding out more about space clearing and will patiently be awaiting your step-by-step guide in how to do it.
Thanks Dena. Yes, as you can see what happens in the physical world. So does it happen in the world of energies.
I will be writing the step by step guide soon. Watch for it. 🙂
Hello Tim, this post comes at a particular good time. As you know, I am a counselor helping adults with mental illness to achieve independence. One particular client, a talented musician, keeps a very neat room and on his drawer has rocks and artifacts that he feels bring positive energy to his room. I look forward to talking to him about your article. I’m sure he’ll find it as fascinating as I do. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Thabo. Thank you. I am very happy and grateful that my article can help people.
You are doing great work. I am honored that you find this post useful for people you are helping. Thank you so much! 🙂
It is important to clean the entire house before Chinese New Year. But we should to it more often too. Not only for positive energies, but it is also good for overall physical health. One thing I must remember from your article here is to clean my purse too! Need to attract more money into my life. Thanks, Tim for sharing.
Totally agree with you, Sharon! 🙂 I do space clearing every time before Chinese New Year. And also whenever I feel the space needs some uplifting.
And yes, very important to clean the energies of your wallets and purses. Any item that keeps money. Even safes. We don’t want any lingering negative energies to block money from coming to us. When we do cleaning of our money wallets, purses, safes, etc, we are inviting money to come to us. To flow to us freely and easily.
