What About Clutter?

We call the energetic work that we do, by removing negative energies, geopathic disturbances, spirits and and other anomalies, "Clearings." Our goal is to clear the living space and sometimes the very personal space of our clients and return to a neutral, benign environment that can then be filled with light, love and harmony. Often, and this seems to be more frequent of late, the homes we visit are very cluttered, some verging on hoarding.  It is an obvious indication that a healthy flow of energy is blocked in many ways.

Feng Shui principles are a part of our practice and the basic goal in Feng Shui is to promote the constant flow of energy throughout the environment.  Blocking the energy with objects that prevent a natural path for the energy results in stagnation and the inability to purge negative energy. It is analogous to blocking an artery or choking the breath.  You see this in homes or businesses that do not have an obvious means of entry, a "hidden door," or an uninviting entrance that is obstructed by walls, furniture or a staircase.

Clutter affects specific areas in different ways.  When a bed is surrounded by boxes and clothing piled around it, or even when one side of the bed is up against a wall, it prevents circulation and movement in your life. Blocking one side prevents you from "sharing the bed" with another. There is no room for a partner in your life. It is best to have a bed in a position that allows easy movement around it. A bed should also always be on a frame that allows air to move beneath it. One of the profound changes that can be brought about is by removing a heavy chest or piece of furniture at the foot of the bed. This simple action allows you to move forward in life, removing an impediment to travel.

When we are called for help in making changes in a space, because the home feels oppressive, dark or just off, we find that what the home needs is a cleaning, more than a clearing, or at least a cleaning and organization first. Then the clearing can be far more effective.  Sometimes we accumulate things and surround ourselves with objects and memories in an attempt to feel grounded.  Instead this is just weighing us down, not connecting us to the earth.

So look around, if you can't find what you are looking for, if you have to walk around something to get where you need to go, open the path, bring in the light and lighten your life.

Aware of Your Surroundings

We recently went to a home just north of Corvallis at the request of a family who had been experiencing a general unease as did their two young children, 18 months and 2 1/2. The two year old seemed particularly unsettled, so much so that he often told his parents that he didn't want to go home. Like most of our clients, they called because they knew that something was out of balance and they felt this most acutely in specific areas of the house and the yard.

As soon as we arrived, got out of the car and walked up the front walk, the three of us immediately felt nauseated.  it stopped us in our tracks and we walked the yard gauging where the feeling was most intense.  After we brought our tools into the  living room, we sat down with the family and discussed their perceptions, experiences and efforts that they had employed to get rid of the sensations.  The mother said that the condition was most acute in the northeast corner of the house, in an upstairs bedroom where she usually sat to nurse or cuddle with the kids.  She had been diligently searching for a possible cure.  Her strongest hunch was EMF, but there were no high power transmission lines or transformers in close proximity. As we walked through the house and yard and examined the electrical system, grounding, etc., it became apparent that EMF levels were normal and this was not the cause.

Earth Energy Grids
In the yard, at the edge of a small backyard patio, below the window of the bedroom, we found a vortex that was especially powerful and the where the strongest feelings of nausea occurred.  The family mentioned that it had been so uncomfortable that they no longer used the patio.  This vortex was at the intersecting lines of the solar grid, which normally would be the site of a benign vortex.
There was, however, a dry fault running directly beneath the vortex which amplified the force.  The line of the grid extended through the house and the front yard along the line where we had first experienced the queasiness.

Earth Acupuncture
When we mentioned the fault line, the parents told us that during the rainy season water flowed over the ground along their north fence line and pooled right where we found the vortex. We dealt with the vortex by reducing and confining it through energy work and construction of thought forms to contain it.  We then used earth acupuncture at three intersection points and enhanced the energy with cinnamon essential oil.

We conducted a thorough spiritual house cleansing to rid the house of negative energies, that in part were residual energies from prior tenants. Following a cleansing with salt and fire, we went throughout the home with healing incense and handheld crystal bowls.

For us, the most unsettling and unusual aspect of the clearing was that we advised them to strongly consider moving.  This is rare for us, perhaps only the second time we have so advised. The family is in no immediate danger, but the conditions of the land and the surroundings was clearly not going to advantageous for their future. In fact, before we left we worked with acupressure techniques to "sedate" and balance their adrenal (triple warmer) meridian. We taught them to do it on each other and the children.  We will soon revisit the home and see how the mitigations hold and how they have enhanced their well-being.

Magical Uses of Salt

The Magical Properties Of Salt

Without exception, every civilization on Earth has very similar ideas about the magical properties of salt - namely that it absorbs psychic and negative energy and binds it into its own structure.
My Mother and Grandmother taught me the use of salt to cleanse a home at an early age. During spring cleaning we would walk through the house and toss salt into all the corners of the rooms, leave it for 24 hours and then sweep it up and toss in down the toilet. When we moved to a new home as we did often as we were in the military my mom would toss salt into the moving van several hours before we began putting boxes in.
From the Roman Catholic rite of preparing holy water, which contains both water and salt to the Indian custom of using salt on wounds to draw away unhealthy spirits, and with evidence that salt has been used in just that way for as long as humans have employed magic, there is clearly a strong consensus and that tends to be simply based on truth, fact and experience.

Protection Against Psychic Phenomena

Salt has always been used as protection against psychic attacks, and to disable unwanted psychic phenomena.
Ordinary salt may be sprinkled across thresholds and around the perimeter of dwellings, inside and out;
Salt mixed with sand is used for forming magic circles;
Rock salt crystals can be added to "medicine pouches", carried in pockets or worn in a small bag about the neck.
Sprinkling salt around someone's bed protects from unwanted nighttime visitors and reduces the likelihood of unwanted spontaneous Orbs.

Please note: Salt dampens/draws ALL psychic energy forms - it doesn't distinguish between "good" or "bad" psychic energies. For active magicians and priests, it is therefore to be handled with care so that it doesn't inadvertently dampen their abilities and disturb their magical works. On the other hand, salt can be very successfully used to counteract overactive psychic emissions, such as in very young gifted children who are experiencing unwanted psychic phenomena, teenagers and women in menopause *temporarily*.

A Simple Example Of A Salt Spell - Spiritual House Clearing

This simple magic ritual demonstrates some of the main points of using salt. It is easy to do for anyone, and makes a big difference to a home, and its occupants, but most of all to the magician who performs this spell.
1. Find a beautiful glass bowl of any size. In psychic workings, the physical size of an object really does not matter - a huge bowl won't do any more than a small one. Psychic energy absorption is not like filling a suitcase!
2. Fill the glass bowl with salt - simple cooking salt or pretty rock salt, it matters not.
3. Place the bowl with the salt near the hearth of the home - the center of the home. In some houses, that is in the kitchen; in other homes, it can be the sitting room, or perhaps a den where everyone gathers. You know where your hearth is.
4. Leave it there for three days.
5. On the third day, take the bowl and the salt somewhere where you can release both the physical salt as well as the psychic attachments it has absorbed. You can throw this salt into a river, or a fire, or simply into a sink with the tap running. As you empty the bowl (you can do this a handful at a time), tell the salt about your worries and troubles and your fears, your negative thoughts. It will take those as well and while you're there.
6. Re-fill the bowl and replace it near the hearth.
7. From now on, empty the salt bowl once a week to keep your home free of harmful energy under normal circumstances; or more often if there is extra stress, as you feel is right.
You will notice a distinct improvement in the atmosphere of your home within a few days.

Salt For Purification

With salt's extreme ability to draw away remnants of psychic energy, including "ghost manifestations" of many different kinds, salt has always been used for psychic clearing and for purification.
Magicians and priests routinely prepare for ceremonies by taking a bath, which contains salt as one of the main ingredients;
Magical objects and crystals are cleansed by immersing them in salt water;
Bowls of salt may be placed into a room to absorb negative energy or psychic energy disturbances;
Throwing salt is generally regarded as a device to clear the aura of a person or an environment of leftover psychic energy.
A box containing salt can be used to purify anything that is placed upon it;
Crystals placed on a bed of salt or on a saltbox require less, or no clearing at all.
It is easy to make your own scrubs for cleansing and I use them all the time when I come home from doing a house clearing. Here's the recipe I use.

Distance House Clearing


We are often asked to perform clearings for homes and businesses that are far from us.  When travel or budgets don’t allow us to actually come to the client we do distance work.  Working with energy makes this as effective as being there. We can connect with the location through a number of means.

Map Dowsing
Dowsing is one of the most ancient forms of energy work. Most of you are familiar with “dowsers,”
people who can locate water, pinpoint the best areas to drill or find underground streams.
You commonly see them with a forked stick or metal rods in their
hands, which they use to determine the direction and location of the sought object.
Using maps to find things through dowsing works for finding water, minerals, lost objects and people, energetic patterns, anomalies and spirits.

Today we have the great benefit of using tools like Google Earth and other mapping applications that give us detailed satellite and street views. Additionally we can request photos and or videos from clients, which can also be scanned for energetic patterns and forms.

Meditation Guides and Divination
In meditation we often gain insights and impressions of the property and the forces around it. Being calm and centered and quiet allows the focus necessary. At this time it is also good to call in your guides, whether they be angels, gods or goddesses, ancestors or masters.  These guides assist in discovery and ultimately as allies and agents of the clearing.

Pendulums and Charts
We use a pendulum to seek answers to questions about conditions in the property, forces we may be dealing with and determining remedies.  Often we employ a range of charts, as in the illustration, and the pendulum guides us to answers and possible solutions.

Tarot and Runes

Other divination tools that we employ are the Tarot and Rune stones.  These are wonderful instruments that guide you to insights and different perspectives of assessing problems and suggesting improvements.  We generally lay out a spread of 3 to 6 cards to get some guidance and or cast some Rune stones or throw a set IChing hexagrams, whatever medium we are drawn to.   

The ClearingWe create an altar on which we layout prints of the maps and relevant photos. Offerings are made with traditional elements of food, drink, incense and water. We may add things that are important to the spirits, which are being appeased or moved into the light.  We place a copper pyramid over the altar to focus the energy. Our fundamental goal is to eliminate the dark and negative energy within the property and then harmonize the energy and fill the area, above and below with pure, positive, golden light. We use music, mantras, frequencies and other pertinent recordings that often play continuously for the hours or days that the clearing may take.  Other useful tools for the altar are various crystal forms such as merkabas.

Advantages to Distance Clearings
There are several advantages to being physically removed from the site. Often it gives clarity and objectivity that is more difficult to achieve when there.  There are fewer limits on the amount of time for the clearing.  When a visit or a longer trip is required there is often a “deadline” for completion of the rituals and ceremonies.
So do not be daunted by the distance between you and us.  You may be across the city or across the ocean, but we can, together, achieve a successful clearing.

How do you know if you suffer from geopathic stress? The average person spends six to eight hours a day in the bedroom sleeping, making this part of the house the most likely to transmit geopathic stress into the body, if it exists underground. Cats tend to sleep in places of geopathic stress, while dogs avoid them.

Pulling your beds and desks away from the wall at least 4” will reduce the impact of geopathic and electromagnetic stress coming from wires and pipes in the walls.
Removing geopathic stress isn’t hard to do and reportedly 80% of the population has the ability to do it. Here’s an easy-to-do technique that you can do today that will make a world of difference in your life:

This is what you will need:

Make two coat hangers into an L shape 4”x 16” each

Several copper rods attainable from your local hardware store - #4 copper wire. You will need to either have them cut or cut them yourself 18” long. You should have at least 10.


Hold the short side of each L in each hand. Do not squeeze the rods too tightly as they need to move. You want to walk around the perimeter of your home or office clockwise. You can do this outside or inside, room by room. Begin by taking a deep breath in and out. After you do this, ask to be shown the geopathic stress lines coming from your left that are harmful to your health. Holding the rods parallel to the ground and parallel to each other, walk in a straight line slowly around the perimeter of your property or room. Where the rods cross, you have found a geopathic stress line.

For outside: Every time the L rods cross, copper staples must be placed at each spot where they cross. Take one copper rod and bend each end 2”, forming a giant staple and push the bent ends into the ground.

For inside: Lay a straight copper rod parallel with the wall at the each spot where the L rods cross. Doing this will divert harmful radiation supporting healthy people and a stress-free environment.


There are in fact three distinct areas in house clearing work for complete space clearing
we must consider them all.

One major problem area is negativity from geological anomalies and underground water courses in or about buildings.

The two other very important categories are

1 - strong emotional imprints in a place, and

2 - any old 'residual spirit' type energy left in the building

Each successful house clearing looks at all three. When you think about it this makes perfect sense.
We all know that in practice energy difficulties rarely relate to one simple factor. And with house clearing long traditional experience tells us the same thing It shows us clearly that problems here
come from some combination of the following,

1 - black streams or lines

2 - strong emotional imprints

3 - old residual energies

And what's more...there is also a correct space clearing sequence a step by step way to work when clearing each house to ensure best results because just as each individual is different,
each place is also different. And naturally then, each clearing is a little different in it's own individual way.

High levels of success come from many years of experience experience we gain down the years
in all the clearing work we do. Getting this right gets house clearing right and brings the best positive change to the whole energy of the house - land - workplace involved.


There are in fact three distinct areas to be addressed in house clearing work, and this is often an important one of them.

The Effects of Negative Emotional Imprints and How to Deal with Them

Emotional imprints in a building are most commonly felt in it's energy, and through definite changes in our feelings as we pass from room to room. Though we rarely stop to think upon it, we encounter subtle changes of this nature between different rooms in practically every house we enter,
but it is only in circumstances where such feelings are dramatic and overwhelming, that corrective action to disperse them is necessary.

For instance....

if a room in the house has been used for a long unhappy convalescence more especially where the person subsequently died there this may leave residual pervading feelings of melancholy or coldness in the room. With experience, we can track down such depleting energy to negativity on a specific item, maybe clothing or furniture etc.

Negatively 'charged' items generate discomfort in a room, or indeed throughout a whole house in some cases,as a direct result of their strongly 'held' sad memories of the past.

In general of course, we cherish our many mementos,treasuring them for the happy memories they bring us, but it is equally true that sometimes an item can be carrying strong negative 'unhappy' vibes around it.

Emotional imprints are cleared using an experienced combination of space clearing methods.

The first thing to do is dislodge any stale energies in rooms and spaces this is traditionally done with drumming and sound. However I like to set a pyramid on the fire point in the house, place a triskel on the fire point and place a tea candle on top of the triskel. This begins the clearing process for me. I then go through the whole house and burn epson salts and alcohol to clear the negative energy.

The second stage is resolving negative emotional energies themselves this is traditionally done by preparing the correct flower essence remedy required and using this throughout the house

Individual items of furniture etc are closely checked for negative energies and treated or removed as required.

The final stage is to uplift the entire tone and energy of the building this is traditionally done with music and I play crustal singing bowls throughout the premises and follow this with Balinese temple bells.

This beautiful music disperses all negativity in it's wake and raises the energy of the house beautifully.

Finally I set the energy of the house with resin Incense called GOD SMILE, which is an ancient recipe from the book of Genesis and goes all the way back to Egypt.

House Clearings a a Distance

At Energy Shifters we often get inquiries about house cleansings in locations far from our home base in Portland, Oregon. Occasionally our clients are able to arrange travel for us to the location. But more frequently, we work at a distance.  In these instances we work very closely with the homeowner. 

Over the past few months we’ve had a few interesting clearings. One was in Costa Rico, Tucson, Phoenix, Ottawa, London and several in Los Angeles. The point is that these distance clearings are as effective as ones we are able to do in person. We prefer to work in person, but this is not always possible. 

We prepare in the same way, gathering information from the client, “visiting” the site by Google Earth, photos and narratives from the client.  We believe that the clients’ observations and instincts are most valuable and accurate.
Map Dowsing
We use map dowsing with the printed maps and satellite locations. Street view images and other view of the property are useful.

We use other forms of divination such as a pendulum, tarot cards and other methods.

The situations vary. In one case it was a geopathic vortex that drew negative energy into a home causing anger, illness and confusion. We were able to isolate and relocate the vortex.  In another case we worked for a realtor who experiencing difficulty in selling a seemingly very attractive property. What blocked the sale was that the previous owner remained very possessive of the property in her desire to not allow anyone else to buy.  This resulted in a powerful block to potential buyers; the home had been on the market for over 8 months. Our remote clearing resulted in removal of the negative energy and a sale within two weeks.

Other cases involved the assistance for spirits in leaving a home.  We have found that our ability to communicate with spirits and entities is not hampered by distance. In other situations negative energies have been generated by traumas, abuse, foreclosures and other prior activities in the home. Many times this type of clearing requires more involvement by the clients.  We give them ceremonies, prayers, rituals and other activities to mitigate these negative energies. 

While we prefer to work in the home, office or land involved, we have found many effective means to complete the cleansing from a distance.

Harmonizing a home with Merkaba Stars


Merkabah, also spelled Merkaba, is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. "Mer" means Light. "Ka" means Spirit. "Ba" means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, (wheels within wheels), spirals of energy as in DNA, which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another.

The meaning of the word, “Merkaba” is ancient; and it carries great energy of Spiritual transformation. A Merkaba Star, or Mer-ka-bah Healing Crystal, carries the meaning and energy of a vehicle of Divine Light which is used by Seekers, Healers and Realm Walkers - the Masters - to travel into the Astral realms and thereby connect with the higher realm beings of Light. 
It is a tool for Ascension.
  • Mer means connecting thread- Light
  • Ka means The Spirit or Astral Self
  • Ba means The Body or Physical Self
Therefore, we see that a Merkaba configuration creates for us the opportunity to thread our thoughts through time. Always with honor and always remembering that there are safe guards. We cannot willfully commit causal affects. 
Merkabahs are perfect tools for self-healing and advanced Reiki techniques.
In Sacred Geometry it is based on the primal pattern, Love, which created all things and all universes, both visible and invisible.
Constructed as a three-dimensional Star of David, Merkaba means that we have 3D interlocking triangles - which mean that the Realms are intersecting, merging the Divine and the Human together... Shamanic Healing and Realm Walking.
For the healer this means that the healing gifts and powers are amplified and one's personal Divine spark is awakened.

 How to Use a Merkaba:
Using a Mer-Ka-Ba surrounds your being with energy spirals and is very symbolic spiritually of the Wheels within the Wheels image which transports a Seeker to higher thoughts, lessons, and states of being as they travel on their Journey-Quest.
Hold it, Meditate, Anoint, Breathe...
Merkaba Healing Crystals are known for activation of the Light Body merged with the Physical Body in Awakening deep Spiritual Transformation.
As a Healers Tool, these Quartz Merkaba Stars extend a focused pulse of intention not only for transverse distance healing but also reaching through the Astral Realms and affecting healing in time. 
With practiced effort, it is said that you can send energy through time and extend your Journey-Quest into the Astral Realms.
The 20 points on the Merkaba Star contribute to its ability to radiate a programmed intent outward.
Healers: Program Merkabahs for specific intentions and then give them to those in need.
I use the Merkaba Stars to create a sacred energy and harmony around a home.
I do this by measuring the circumference of the house to see how close it relates to the Golden Means. Then we add the measurements it needs to be the right rectangle and place the Merkaba Stars in the earth around the four corners of the house, this creates an energy barrier that protects and harmonizes the house. I then use my large crystal pendulum to tune the four Merkaba Stars to each other.

I purchase my Merkaba Stars from India but you can buy them at  www.healingcrystals.com  and they come in many sizes and types of stones. I find for my use the clear quartz are the ones I lik
