Ever walk into a space & have it just

not

feel

good?

Have it feel yuck & stuck?

I know I have. That feeling is a very real thing!
It’s the vibrational frequencies of the space interacting with your electromagnetic field.
We naturally crave an environment that feels energetically welcoming.

A home or work space that’s vibing with feel-good energy is one that you feel at home in, that you feel positive in, that inspires creativity & good conversation.

It’s a place you enjoy doing your favorite things in or allows you to relax, meditate, read…and on and on.

Since a good-feeling space is not a vibrational match to negative feeling frequencies, you’ll be less likely to have arguments, sadness or even uneasy feelings in a space that’s been energetically-tended-to.

The good news is there are some vibrational things you can do (some involving crystals) to help make your space more inviting and even create a sacred space of your own. So let’s get into those:

9 Easy Ways to Raise the Vibration in your Home or Work Place
1. Clear the clutter & do some physical cleaning – I know this one doesn’t feel like much fun & not even very metaphysical, but it’s a must-do before you do anything else!

A space that’s filled with clutter or dust is energetically clogged & not allowing the energy to flow, not allowing the stagnant negative feeling vibes to clear out. So, get to de-cluttering first & then dust, vacuum & just make the space sparkle.

You’ll feel the change right away!

2.  Use essential oils – 100% pure essential oils (organic fair-trade & sustainably harvested preferred!) are high vib’ing. You can add them to your space in a couple of ways. You can actually use them to help clean in the above step.

Here’s a great video with more on how you can use them for cleaning your space:

Then once the cleaning is done, keep the vibes high in your space by using the oils in an oil burner or a diffuser.

NOTE: If you’re doing this in your work space be sure to get permission from those around you! B/c the oil scents may not agree with everyone & I’d like to keep you outta the trouble zone.

3.  Salt Lamps – these are great for inducing negative ions into your environment & for restructuring the energy of our environment. Plus they shine a soft beautiful & comforting light that does wonders for our energetic state. 

I have a full-on blog post all about salt lamps & their benefits here.

And these days you don’t even have to go to a specialty metaphysical shop to get them! You can find them in any home-ey type store. I found these in Bed, Bath & Beyond…

4.  Crystal Placement – simply place crystals throughout your space intuitively; wherever you think they feel or look best.

Just having the crystals in your space will entrain the energy around you. Whenever you enter the space, you’ll feel the difference from a space that isn’t as vibrationally aligned.

5. Crystal Grids – creating a crystal grid is a way to organize or structure the energy from your crystals towards a specific intention. So it’s more advanced than just placing a crystal in the space.

I have a blog post here and a best-selling book here that I wrote all about how to do a crystal grid. It’s kinda my thang. 🙂

Something I really like to do to restructure the energy of the space is to grid the entire room.
You can grid a room by simply taking 4 clear quartz points and putting one in each corner facing inwards towards the center of the room. Then just let them communicate with each other.
6. Sage Smudge –  Pick up a smudge stick, or loose sage (usually white sage is used for the purposes of clearing out) and burn it slowly (after you light it blow out the flame & it will cont. to smolder & smoke) in a fireproof safe bowl, dish or shell like an abalone shell. 

Allow the smoke to waft around & smudge the space.

Some like to use a feather or a ceremonial fan to control where the smoke goes a bit, like into tight corners & to help spread the smoke around.  It also helps to keep the smoldering sage stay lit.

NOTE: You can use a gem elixir smudge spray if the smoke from burning sage will bother you or isn’t appropriate in your work place (cuz it’s not).

C’mon, do you want to be caught standin’ there with your burning sage & smudge fan with the smoke alarm blaring & the sprinklers going off in your work building?

Didn’t think so.

7.  Sound Clearing – We can easily use acoustic energy to restructure the energy of our space (it’s all about sound vibrations). Very easy to do!

You can use any sort of high amplitude (loud) acoustic instrument, but I prefer to use something that’s pleasing to my ears:

  • tingshas
  • crystal singing bowl
  • Native American drumming

There are many more options than this. Take your pick! You may also choose to put on a CD or a sacred space music station like this one.

8.  Let Mother Nature in – open up the windows & grow indoor plants.

Mother Nature induces negative ions & that’s a GOOD THING for our spaces. So as much as possible allow nature into your space!

 

9.  Feng shui your space

I am no feng shui expert but I do believe in the powers of inducing the correct energy into your space through the proper placement & alignment of objects. For this I’m going to refer you to a good source to get you started.

And lastly, I’ve got a FREE Crystals and our Sacred Spaces eKit to help you pull all these elements together. In it, you get tons of sparkly inspiration on creating a sacred space all your own.

If you haven’t picked yours up yet…you can do that here.

How Often?
I’m usually asked how often we should do these things to keep our spaces sacred & energetically tended to.

My feeling is you can never do too much of it…but if I had to give you a guideline, I’d say shoot for once/month. And if something has occurred in your space that has made you feel uncomfortable or bad in any way then do something right then to raise the vibes.

Are you gonna try out some or all of these tips & raise the vibration of your space?  Do you feel the difference?  I know you will! Share your experience in the comments below.

How to Clear Negative Energy Out of Your Home FAST

I’m often asked…
Can we clear negative energy out of our home or room using crystals?
Yep, yep…we totally can!

What do I mean by “clearing your room or home of negative energy”?
Well, a lot of the time, when people enter into a room they can actually physically feel what I like to call “yuck & stuck energies” from “negative energy or negativity” and they want to clear it out.

Here are a few other blog posts I’ve written on the subject:

  • How To Deal with Negative People in 5 Sparkly Steps
  • 4 Crystals for “Protection”
  • Crystals Tips for Empaths & Highly Sensitive People

There are many ways to clear the energy, like sage smudging or using sound acoustics (as I demo in the below video):

In this blog post I’m going to focus on how to clear negative energy specifically with *crystals*.
How do you clear energy using crystals?
To clarify, what I’m talking about is mainly “purifying” the energy in a space or transmuting the energy using crystals, because they’re so great at doing that.

You want to make sure you start with “re-tuned” crystals; meaning that the crystal has been cleared of any previous energy & reset back to its dominant oscillary rate (or base vibratory rate). (Click here for my preferred energy clearing technique for crystals).

Now, I don’t think that crystals need to be cleared all the time. (And here’s why.)

But if you’re using them specifically for the purpose of retuning energy, transmuting the energy, purifying the space then you want to start with crystals that have already been retuned.  So go ahead & CLEANSE AWAY!

I feel the best way to do that is:

  • Gather the crystals up you’re going to use in a bunch
  • Use a crystal singing bowl (I recommend & use these…use coupon code: HM10 for 10% off your order!), Tibetan singing bowl or some tingshas to bathe & reset those beauties in sound acoustics; clearing them w/ the vibrations of sound. Sound energy is my favorite way to re-tune the crystals! It’s the easiest and the safest way to do it, believe me.
  • Crystals in Your Space
    1 thing that you can do is to simply have crystals present in your space that are large enough to emit energy in all directions.

    The larger the space, the larger the crystal you want there.

    [caption id="attachment_17979" align="aligncenter" width="595"] Trying to climb into my large amethyst geode. ;)[/caption]

    Size does matter in this respect.

    For this purpose, I wouldn’t use a single crystal point b/c generally, that will just send the energy up through the apex (that’s what we call the point) in 1 direction.

    A better choice would be a cluster that can radiate the energy in many different directions. A cluster has  many different apexes (appices) that point in all different directions so the energy can be emanating all over.

    Or you can choose something that’s cut & polished for the purpose of radiating energy in all different directions…like a sphere; like my HANDSOME Lapis Lazuli specimen here…look at those pyrite sparkles!

     

    Remember, the larger the room the larger the crystal needed! So if you’re trying to do this for a very big space it might be better to have a few crystals or a larger single piece.

    If you want to do this for an average size home or office then I recommend putting 1 crystal in each room rather than relying on 1 crystal to do the job for the entire house.  Or even doing a crystal grid to surround the property (more on that below).

    Gem Elixir Sprays!
    Another sparkly option is to create a Gem Elixir Spray; a similar practice to sage smudging, but uses the power of crystal vibrations in water to clear your space.  You would create a gem elixir spray with the specific intended purpose of retuning, transmuting, purifying the energy in the space. 🙂

    [caption id="attachment_2303" align="aligncenter" width="570"] Sorry Crystal Hotties. Not for sale. I can’t keep up with production on these. They sell out as quickly as I can make them! So, YEAH! It works!![/caption]

    A gem elixir spray takes on the essence of the gem or crystal (& any other essences you might add to the mix).

    There are sooo many different, FUN & creative ways to make gem elixirs
    For energy-clearing your room you could try this gem elixir combo:

    • Smokey Quartz + Black Tourmaline Gem elixir spray.  You’d use those specifically  b/c those 2 crystals are well-known for transmuting & purifying energy in a space. These powerhouse crystals are ideal so that any kind of energy coming in gets transmuted to neutral.
    • Add some essential oils to compliment & enhance the energies choosing oils that are known for clearing space such as sage (specifically salvia officinalis or salvia apiana) for the purpose of transmuting energy in a space.

    Grid it!
    You can create a crystal grid to transmute the entire room, space or home!

    You can grid a room or space with either clear quartz to help purify that energy or even Black Tourmaline or Smokey Quartz to transmute.

     
    Gridding with Clear Quartz:

    • take 4 points of generally the same size
    • Put 1 crystal:
      • either in each corner pointing inwards
      • Or 1 on each wall, if it’s four walls, have one @ each wall pointing inwards

    Like I’ve said, this is not the only way to clear energy. There are many different methods.  But these are a few crystal tips you can try out, experiment & have fun with. 🙂
