What is Space Clearing
and How Does It Work?
Space Clearing is used in every culture, world-wide, to transform
unseen detrimental energies, in and around us, into beneficial
energy. Native Americans burn sage and cedar, the Balinese use
temple bells and incense, Africans use drums and sticks, Roman
Catholic priests use prayer and ritual.
Dowsing and Space Clearing
I follow a protocol for clearing that involves tuning into and
identifying the energetic disturbances affecting you in a prayerful
state, using the art of dowsing. I check for the energetic balance
of your space and for the type of disturbances. There is a wide
range of possibility, from metaphysical (such as negative thought
forms, emotional disturbance, previous occupants, ghost energy,
site disturbance) to geophysical (electromagnetic frequencies,
underground water, fault disturbance, negative ley lines, and
more), to personal clearing (we affect our spaces—our spaces
affect us). Once identified, I acknowledge and witness the energy
with compassion so that it can clear/transform.
The process is similar to yoga or massage. As you enter an area of tension, you breathe into the area, giving it your attention, until it releases. In acupuncture, the needle is inserted in the area where energy needs to be moved. This clearing is similar, only on an energetic/spiritual level. It is often appropriate to combine personal clearing with environmental clearing, as our personal energy can have a profound effect on our spaces.
I use my dowsing system and spiritual help to ask permission,
to find the appropriate time, and how much information is needed
to be witness. I start every Feng Shui consultation with a clearing.
I also do clearing work independent of Feng Shui consultations,
on an hourly basis. I start with a floor plan, plot plan, and
aerial photo to map dowse before our visit. On site, I dowse
the property to identify and clear disturbances. I usually have
a few Feng Shui suggestions for you to ground the clearings.
Dowsing is a very old method, using tools such as a Y rod, L
rods, or pendulums, to get information as answers to questions
that can be answered Yes or No. It's a way of accessing the higher
mind by bypassing the intellect, using the autonomic nervous
system. It's most commonly known for finding underground water.
Its use is much wider, as dowsing can be used to find most anything,
from missing persons to ghosts.
Energetic disturbances have been observed to cause illness and difficulties for the occupants. Once cleared, the occupants usually notice a lighter atmosphere and change in their situation. Clearing can be done remotely or on site, depending on the circumstances.
When to call for Space Clearing
People call for Space Clearing when something is out of balance
and they want to enhance beneficial energies in their lives.
They may be moving into a new space and want to make it their
own, are having a run of bad luck, accidents are happening, a
project keeps getting stalled, a house is not selling, people
have trouble sleeping or are getting ill, or unusual occurrences
"Thank you so much for doing the energy
work in my space! Since we began, my energy has been much stronger
and many noticeable changes have happened. I had been feeling
stuck for a long time. Now things are moving in a positive direction!
My intention was to build my confidence personally and to enhance
my ability to articulate my expertise professionally. In the
past couple of weeks, I have successfully completed a presentation,
have negotiated with the buyer of my home from a strong position,
and have received new work from out of the blue! I am definitely
feeling better about myself!"

"I was amazed, after we did the energy work, that my goal
for retaining information was so dramatic. In my acting class,
I was shocked that I remembered 100% of my monologue, first time
through! That was a first. My other goal of wanting balance and
centeredness is resulting in my reacting to certain events with
calm, including my reactions in traffic, have changed dramatically.
I have been having wonderful days!"
Jane D., Bedford, MA
"Your space clearing was SO fabulous! Not only did it lift that dreary feeling I always had on coming inside, it also brought the three things I wanted from your consult: serenity, passion, abundance. The serenity began right away with your clearing of negative energies from the space. I also healed the hurt child within my psyche about two months ago, which has brought that serenity to a new and stable level. The abundance clicked in after my DSL line was disconnected for nonpayment about a month after your consultation and -- while using a friend's office to connect to the Internet -- I checked out the jobs I was qualified for on Monster.com. I discovered I could make a LOT more money by going back into the corporate world -- a direction I have since taken, and got the first job I interviewed for! As for passion, my favorite fellow of these past 15 years and I started having conversations at a much deeper level about three months ago, with the result that I'm now moving in with him. Woo-hoo!"
Wyn S., formerly of Natick, MA.
"Chris, since your work, I am way less stuck!! In fact
I have been on a massive clean up clear out. All rooms have been
cleaned out of need, don't need. The studio is full of things
for the Yard sale. It is going to be HUGE. I have all the "I
don't need right now" stuff packed neatly in boxes in each
room VERY organized. I will begin the touch ups for paint, and
wash the windows next week. Then the house will officially will
be for sale! Yup I am movin!! Clearly I am moving energy!"

“I am very thankful to Christine for restoring the peaceful environment in my home. Christine sought out the source of the energy disturbance and cleared it from the space. She provided helpful insight and followed up with me at intervals to ensure the situation was entirely rectified. Her
kind and understanding manner was comforting and her talent restored
balance and harmony.
"My motivation for contacting Christine was that my sister had come to stay with us and was most disturbed during her first few nights. She got quite sick and told me some unusual experiences had been keeping her up. As this was the second guest to report such activity and I had felt it myself (but of course one often writes off their own such experiences), I asked Christine for a consultation. Christine was most responsive and addressed the matter immediately, as she was concerned that my sister had gotten ill. Afterwards
my sister experienced no further disturbances, got quite comfortable sleeping
in her room, and was completely healthy for the rest of the summer.”

“I certainly can say that I found the change of energy in the two spaces in my home and the three in institutions to be dramatic after the clearings you did. You are impressive in your focus and clarity ....you are a gentle, comfortable person to be with during the process ....and I couldn't have been happier with the results.”
—Di Clymer, Concord, Massachusetts
“I have been curious about Feng Shui
and Space Clearing for a long time. Chris did a session
with me in early June. My sleep had been disrupted and
there was a water leak in my basement. After working with
Chris I am sleeping soundly through the night, and my home is
more peaceful and loving. And~ get this~ even though we
have had torrential and more rain than ever in the area where
I live, my basement has not developed the small lakes that formerly
would come with a normal rainfall. Gratefully,”
O, Bedford, Massachusetts
