Okay, let's talk about clearing, energy clearing that is. If you are an Empath or highly sensitive person then learning how to clear and protect yourself is really important.
There are many circumstances when an energy clearing might be useful or necessary. Every item, person, location and situation has the potential for a healthy, well-protected aura (energy field that surrounds/emits from a person, object etc.) but a clearing becomes necessary when that energy field is compromised.
There are different non-beneficial energies that can disrupt the energetic balance:
2. Taking on/absorbing negative energy from the environment
5. Negative emotions and self-inflicted blockages
Items that may need clearing:
2. People, animals
3. Home, office, land, plants etc
4. Objects (books, art pieces, furniture), crystals, rocks etc.
The first step in clearing is to determine what it is you are dealing with. Become the story investigator in your life by being curious as to what is "really" happening. First start off by observing or noticing how you are feeling or how the energy in the space feels. Then establish a diagnosis. For example, if the space feels heavy, dense or stuffy then this could be a sign that the space could use a clearing. The more you tune into the energy within you and around you, the more you can build up your accuracy and ability to diagnose. The more you can accurately understand what is there, then the better you will be equipped to map out a proper strategy for a clearing. Sometimes, clearings are multi-layered.
Side Note: If you are unable to work this first step, I suggest sending out a heartfelt prayer for help and/or getting professional help! I will give you a couple examples of how to clear things, but by no means is it meant to represent a full set of tools that might be necessary in situations you encounter. Sometimes, Reiki or a Dowsing Energy Healing is what a person or space, etc may need to fully be cleared.
Before you get started with any clearing, make sure you are properly protected.
STEP 1 - PROTECTION INTENTION/AFFIRMATIVE PRAYER:
I ask the Divine Realm/God/Spirit/Source/Universe who is here for my highest good to put a strong white light barrier or white bubble around me so no negativity can come in. I thank you in advance.
Another Protection Intention/Affirmative Prayer Option:
Depending on your beliefs; I am surrounded by the White Light of the Christ, through which nothing negative can penetrate. I thank you in advance.
STEP 2 - CLEARING & HEALING PRAYER: You will ask Divine Spirit/God plus any personal guides/angels/masters/saints that you are working with who is here for your highest good for the following:
(Make it a heartfelt prayer and be as clear as you can be within your request)
"I ask Divine/God/Spirit/Source/Angels/Divine Realm who is here for my highest good to please clear/heal myself/this space/my friend/this situation/relationship from any and all trauma and negative energy in all time and all space with anything that it has caused and created negative energy and send back any negative energies to their proper place in the Universe purified, healed and transformed in a white light bubble in all time and space and please return all truthful soul energies to me from in all time and all space healed, transformed, purified and reintegrate them. I ask Divine/God/Spirit/Angels/Divine Realm to strengthen my strong white light barrier around me. Thank you!"
This is a good way of asking for a clearing. A simple clearing is easily accomplished this way. Always make sure to connect into gratitude after you say a prayer or an intention!
WHY A CLEARING MAY NOT STICK:
Some circumstances however are a bit trickier because the clearing is multi-layered.
Let's say you want to help to clear a friend who has been surrounded by negative energies and feels depressed. You are using all the tools you have and nothing happens. Why might that be?
Well, let's say for example your friend has a deep-seated guilt issue and he/she feels the need for punishment, that guilt has the power to override any clearing attempt you make.
If this is the case, the guilt needs to be cleared first and your friend will have to do some self-forgiveness work (self-forgiveness mirror work meditation can be handy for this) before any clearing attempt on your part would be successful.
Another reason, can be that a person might not be open to a clearing especially if the item/energy to be cleared gives them power/comfort or is used to solicit negative attention.
Use discernment! If it is self you are dealing with, have the courage to be honest with yourself. Acknowledge how you feel, connect into the emotional frequencies of love, being brave and vulnerability then take a moment to see or embrace the "real" truth of what you are moving through. Ask yourself if there are any lessons to be learned before the non-beneficial energies can be released. Whatever the answer is, be kind to self and gentle as you move through each step.
If you are working with someone else, maybe you have to let go of the attempt to clear him or her for the time being and respect his or her free will. Lean into not taking it personally because at this point this is what this person is choosing as an experience. Make sure to up to your protection so everything else can deflect off of you and you stay in your alignment and space of love and compassion.
And as always, have fun while doing this, you can learn a lot about yourself and the world from the comfort of your own home, simply by paying attention and rethinking/examining your choices. May God bless all of you on this journey!
Much Gratitude, Sending Reiki to all of you, Light & Love,
