Power Tools That Create Powerful Feng Shui

I had every intention of getting this written yesterday on the power day of 11-11-11 (2018 breaks down to an 11 when you add it all together), but it was pouring snow and I was busy doing the space clearing that I am about to recommend to all of you.  I have written about space clearings in the past, but not about the quadruple threat of using sage, sweet grass, Palo Santo wood, and juniper.

First, let me explain the benefits of yesterday’s energy.  It is primarily significant because of all the 1’s.  According to Joanne Sacred Scribes Angel Numbers, when we notice the number 1111, we are at a point where our thoughts are manifesting into our reality more quickly than before.  We must pay attention to what we are thinking when we notice them.  Some consider this a type of spiritual awakening to a higher level of consciousness.  For more information, check out Joanne’s blog at http://sacredscribesangelnumbers.blogspot.com

To begin any type of ceremony using Feng Shui, it is good to take a few moments to center and ground yourself into the present moment.  Often, we become overwhelmed and our energy gets scattered.  We don’t even realize how scattered we are until we pause long enough to draw our energy in and ground it down.  Find a place to sit, close your eyes and take a deep breath.  I like to do the mind-calming mudra along with the mind-calming mantra. I couldn’t find a photo of it online that I liked, so I took my own below.  The mantra goes something like this:

Gatay Gatay, Para Gatay, Para Sam Gatay, Bodhi Swaha. I say this 9 times while visualizing my energy returning to me.

Once you are mentally prepared and you have all your ceremony ingredients, it’s a good idea to verbally say a little protection prayer.  The one I like using is from the Pensacola Paranormal Society and is used with permission:

“Mother, Father, God, I command that all negative energy and energy that is not conducive to my well-being be removed through this process. If there are any attached spirits to this home, I evoke Archangel Michael to use his sword to remove them and their tie to this place. I ask for your protection and guidance in the process. Thank you, it is done, it is done, it is done.”

The next thing to do is to crack all the doors and windows in the area that you are cleansing. Then, light up your sage.  I like to use sage first because it clears the vibe of a place. Scientifically, sage removes the bacteria out of the air, and spiritually, it has been used in the form of “smudging” to clear the negative energy out or off of a person, place or thing.  As mentioned above, intention is important, so add your desired outcome into this equation and you will be all set to move on to the next item in your space clearing toolbox.

I do not know if there is a set order in which these things need to be done, but I allowed my intuition to guide me, and it chose the Palo Santo wood next.  This is an item that I only recently discovered.  It offers energetic protection, removes bad energy, uplifts emotions and fills a home with blessings.  The smoke from Palo Santo soothes the energy of a space and adds an additional layer of support and protection.

Say the following intention/prayer outloud when you light the end of the wood:  “I ask that the plant spirit of Palo Santo please infuse this space with blessings.”

The next tool I used was a dried bunch of Juniper leaves.  At the time, I did not know what a workhorse this herb truly is, so I especially want to share it with you here. “Used in purification ceremonies, burning Juniper washes away doubt, hesitation, hostility and judgement. Waft the fragrance of burning Juniper throughout the home to cleanse and protect against negativity.” (https://www.energymuse.com/juniper-smudge-stick.html). You can use it in combination with other smudging herbs as I did, or on its own, especially if you are depleted or unmotivated.  It is all about abundance and good luck, and we can all benefit from extra in those departments.

The final herb that I used is my absolute favorite!  Even its name tells its secrets.  Sweetgrass is often braided and dried and used to attract positive energies.  It has a vanilla, fennel type of scent that sweetens the air and reminds us that we are sacred humans playing a game with energy.

I included physical intentions by adding Young Living oils in the form of Abundance and Joy (self-explanatory), a hefty chunk of Rose Quartz because it symbolizes love and the attraction of more of it into our lives.  The Amethyst encourages healing, trust and intuition. Citrine is an amazing stone that is one of only two that never needs to be cleansed.  Instead it transmutes and dissipates it instead.  It enhances willpower, and aligns the chakras which can get out of alignment faster than newly balanced tires! The last crystal I used was a clear quartz wand.  Clear Quartz is an amplifier and when combined with everything else in my space clearing toolbox, it is the final piece of the puzzle needed to tune into the higher energy of our homes.

The rules of life are easier to follow than we realize.  We are powerful creators who have forgotten the power of our thoughts, and these space clearing tools can act to remind us of our divinity and strength.  It’s time to wake up and remember who we really are.

Using the Violet Flame with Feng Shui

In last month’s blog, I discussed an energy clearing technique called The Triple Grid, and I mentioned that my next blog would focus on something called the Violet Flame.  I am writing today to fulfill my promise.  If you regularly follow this blog, you are most likely aware of Feng Shui, and by that rational, you have an awareness of that which is invisible yet tangible.  What a dichotomy!  How can something be invisible and tangible?

There is one thing that I know every person has felt but never seen and that is the wind.  Wind itself is invisible, but we feel it right?  We see the damage that it can do when it is too forceful, but we don’t actually see wind.  Ahh, but what about tornados?  Aren’t they a visual example of wind?  Are we actually seeing wind or are we seeing the debris that is caught in the wind?  I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the actual translation of the words Feng and Shui are Wind and Water, two things in this world that are both seen and unseen, or tangible and intangible.  Pretty cool isn’t it?  I think it is cool, but then again, I am a Feng Shui nerd!

Now, let’s get back to the Violet Flame.  According to Troika Saint Germaine, the Violet Flame is a Divine Gift and tool that can be used by anyone, and was given to us by Ascended Master Saint Germaine. It is Spiritual Alchemy in action, and it is worth more than all the gold in the world.  What is Spiritual Alchemy?  The word alchemy is defined as the “the transformation of matter”. (Merrium-Webster), so it stands to reason that Spiritual Alchemy will have a transformative effect on our spiritual selves.  This is not to be confused with religion.

As humans, we are composed of four spiritual bodies, including the Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual bodies, or P=EMS. (I made that up so I could remember the order of the bodies!). When we connect to our Higher Self and we ask that the Violet Flame transmutes and transforms all limiting thoughts, habits, & beliefs from all of our bodies: Physical, Emotional, Mental, & Spiritual, we are doing some heavy duty etheric house cleaning, only the house in this instance is our body.  If you want to go a little further, add in the phrase, “in all dimensions, time and space; past, present and future.”  That should take care of any lingering negativity.

While I do not have copyright permissions to use anything from the linked site below, I can include the link in this blog so that you may benefit from the gifts within it.  It is by far one of the very best and most accurate sources on the topic of the Violet Flame that I have ever stumbled upon, and if you follow this link, you will not be disappointed by what you discover. http://ascension-stgermain.com/violetflame-article.html

Another thing that I read today is that  “Energy is never lost nor can it be “deleted”, however, it can be CHANGED into a higher frequency.” (http://ascension-stgermain.com/violetflame-article.html)  I feel like I’ve always known that energy cannot be deleted, but I’ve never thought of it in those terms.  The word delete is such a modern term.  Before the advent of computers, I don’t think that we would have used the word delete as frequently as we do now.

Now, since this is a blog about Feng Shui, and Feng Shui is all about energy, it makes perfect sense to apply this wisdom that we use to clear our body of negative energy, and use it in our homes and offices as well.  If we apply this concept of changing energy to a higher frequency as it relates to the concepts of Feng Shui and the invisible and visible within our homes and our workplaces, the potential for change is outstanding!

Take a moment when you can be undisturbed by loud neighbors or purring kitties, close your eyes and quiet your mind.  Speaking out loud, ask that the Violet Flame descend into your home.  Let its light permeate every molecule of space in, through and around your entire home.  Ask that the energy be transformed and transmuted, cleaned and cleared of all limiting thoughts, habits and beliefs, from all predecessor energy, in all dimensions, time and space; past, present and future . . . You know the drill, especially if you have already practiced what you learned by following the links above.

This is powerful and sacred work that we are doing on ourselves and on our surroundings, but let’s take it one final step further.  What if we started sending this Violet Flame to the places that need it most?  Can you think of a certain house in the United States that needs the alchemy of change to flourish?  I’ll give you a hint.  It is big, and white and it is also called the White House.  What if one by one, we started visualizing the Violet Flame at work in the White House or in Congress?  Holy cow!  Instead of spinning our wheels bitching at one another about politics, we can use the alchemy of the Violet Flame to alter the energy.  I can’t think of a place that needs a Feng Shui adjustment more than the White House.  Talk about predecessor energy!

I am including one other resource for information about the power of the Violet Flame below.  It’s author, Marius, is an artist who creates beautiful artwork of spiritual beings and spiritual symbols.  Many years ago, I ordered a small, 5×7 photo of his Violet Flame artwork and it has helped me to mentally focus and train my brain to “see” the flame in my mind’s eye.

I would also like to add that a few years ago, I was teaching a meditation class at Apple computers in Austin, TX and one of the participants in that class later created his own interpretation of the Violet Flame and gave it to me as a gift.  It is the featured image in this post and one that I cherish to this day.  When we surround ourselves with beautiful energy, beautiful light and the ancient healing gifts of this work and the power of Feng Shui, we create an anchor for more goodness to follow.

Feng Shui for Your Auric Field – How to Clear Your Energy Fields

When something feels “off” in our homes, it can often be traced back to some of the pillars of Feng Shui, things like the design of a room, the layout, the colors we see, or perhaps even a memory of an encounter we had with someone we loved that had a bad ending.  Once you recognize the source of the problem, the study of this ancient practice of Feng Shui has solutions, cures and specific techniques to clear the tangible or intangible problems.

Now, what happens when something feels off within us?  Once you’ve ruled out any sort of cold or illness, it may be time to turn your attention to your energy body.  Whether you are familiar with the an auric field or not, it is there, regardless of your belief or skepticism.  The auric field is an energy field that surrounds each and every human being extending about 3 feet in every direction.  It could almost be described as your own personal cocoon.   It is sort of like our body’s home, if you will.  Or perhaps a better way to describe it would be to say that it is our body’s force field.

However you describe the aura, the fact remains that it is a permeable layer, meaning that it allows energy in and out.  If you’ve ever been around someone who is really happy, that happiness can almost magically rub off on you just by being around them.  You might start to feel better or happier without realizing why.  The cells of your body will tend to gravitate to that sunniness, to that joy-filled person that created this feeling within you.  And it doesn’t even have to come from just one person.  Once you align with an energy that feels good, you become a magnet for it.  Your energy vibration craves it, and the law of attraction teaches that as long as you stay in that higher energy and elevated state, like will attract like and you will attract people that match you.

The same is true if you spend too much time with someone who is angry, judgmental or bitter.  Spending time with this type of people has just as debilitating an impact on us.  The most difficult thing is learning to recognize the difference between feeling your own mixed bag of emotions, or if you have somehow picked up on someone else’s energy.

Are you picking up what someone else is putting down?  Are sure you want that?

Because people lie and hide their true emotions so easily, we might not realize that we are hanging out with someone who isn’t in a good place emotionally.  An emphatic (a.k.a. empath) or a very empathetic person can inadvertently absorb another person’s emotional confusion and sadness.   Just like we enjoy the positive energy of happy people, an unhappy person may also feel some relief from their own low emotions because that empathic companion is probably willing on some level to absorb some of their negative load.

Whether you absorb negative energy on purpose or by accident, once you become aware that something doesn’t feel right within you, the only way to shake it is to do your own personal auric space clearing.  You might even call it Auric Feng Shui!  I know of two very effective tools for doing just this.  One is called the Triple Grid and the other uses the Violet Flame.  If you aren’t comfortable daydreaming a little, this will take some practice.  Visualizing is just intentional daydreaming in my opinion and that is the key to unlocking this tool and using it to feel better.

I use both of these tools regularly, depending on the amount of time I want to spend on it.  The first is from a website called the Alchemical Mage.  For my own auric health, I apply the individual version of this technique, but spoiler alert, you can also use your home, on someone else’s home or some other public place.  You don’t need anyone’s permission or approval either.  This is a technique that I have shared with many of my Feng Shui clients over the years, and it works beautifully!   You can copy the following link to that page here: http://www.alchemicalmage.com/techniques/grid.htm. (Updated 1/22/19:  Since I wrote this blog post, the above link has been taken down by the sites administrators.  If you would like this information, I have the original book with the techniques and I can teach it to you.  Just contact me at logynnbnorthrhip@gmail.com or 512-496-9232.)

I was drawn to write this tonight because I met a friend at a bar near Pearl Street yesterday that has been in business for over 45 years.  It is doubtful that anyone has ever done a space clearing on this place.  I was completely enthralled with the history that must have occurred at this establishment.  However, once I got home, I felt a despair and depression that is not my usual.  I was extremely tired at a very early hour, and when I did wake up, I wasn’t refreshed.  If anything, I was in a massive funk.   I felt like I was riding on an emotional roller coaster and I COULD NOT SHAKE IT.

Finally, halfway through the day, a lightbulb finally went off in my head and smacked me into awareness.  I turned off the t.v. and found a comfortable spot without any of my pets crawling all over me, and repeated the following words out loud as I visualized each step.  The first is for our spaces and the instructions that follow it are for our individual energy fields.

The Triple Grid

From the book What Is Lightbody? and Tools for Living Heaven tape set

This is for keeping areas like your home, workplace or car energetically clean. In the Triple Grid technique you ask the specific group to set up their level of the grid, designating the geometric shape, size and location. Spherical grids are the most stable and easy to maintain, so we suggest working with this geometry for most everyday applications (such as around your home, car or workplace). You will want to renew the grid weekly or when ever you notice the energy getting funky.

“Legions of Michael: grid level one, spherical, my house. Destroyer Force Angels: grid level two, spherical, my house. Circle Security: grid level three, spherical, my house.

“Destroyer Force Angels: please spin your grid, spinning out astral entities, adverse electromagnetic frequencies, fear, disharmony, anger, adverse astrological influences, expectation, frustration, viruses, fungi, bacteria, worry, astral distortions, miscommunication, sadness, enemy patterning, scarcity, loneliness, karmic monads, and anything that distorts the spiritual signature or clear communication with Spirit. Spin out anything that hasn’t been mentioned in this or any other language, but which you know needs to leave the space at this time.” (These are just a few suggestions. Fill in whatever is needed according to your situation).

When the clearing feels complete, continue with, “Reverse spin, same stuff.” When that feels complete, end with, “Stop spin. Thank you.”

“Legions of Michael, please infuse your grid with the energies of Grace, Purity, Faith, Hope, Peace, Liberty, Harmony, Love, Mercy, Alpha/Omega, Rapture and Victory Elohim. Infuse with love, intimacy, the Unified Chakra, being centered, clarity, full connection with Spirit, tolerance, clear communication, health, wealth, following Spirit without hesitation, mastery, sovereignty, living Heaven, and anything else that hasn’t been mentioned in this or any other language, but which you know needs to be in the space at this time. Please seal your grid. Thank you.” (Again more suggestions. Fill in whatever you need, according to your situation.)

“Circle Security, realign your grid to harmonize with upper-dimensional gridworks. Release all distortions and parasites on the grids. Infuse frequencies for clearer communication with Spirit. Seal grid. Thank you.”

The Triple Grid can be done around a location without you being physically there. Try doing it around the mall, the courthouse, the grocery store or the post office, before you get there. Remember that it cannot be used to manipulate others; it just makes particular energies more or less easily available. This is a very versatile technique. We have given you the everyday applications. The spherical geometry is very stable and easy to maintain. Live in it all the time and it will be easier to live Heaven on Earth.

The Triple Grid should NOT be used around your own fields, as the speed with which the Destroyer Forces spin might cause your own fields to fray. (See the Triple/Quad Grid: Individual Field Version for a technique to grid your own fields.)

“Quad Grid” Version

This is an expansion of the Triple Grid, where you request assistance for dealing with the electromagnetic anomalies and surges that are currently very active on the planet. As the planet approaches Zero Point magnetics, electromagnetic surges are very common. This addition to the Triple Grid will help you keep your fields healthy through the planetary shifts.

The Ze’Or Continuum is a group of beings who originate from another universe. They are pure-energy beings, and they are the sentient embodiment of physical forces, such as gravity, electricity, magnetics, thermals, etc. They have come to assist Earth and her inhabitants through the electromagnetic shifts we are experiencing preparatory to Zero Point. They are always available to assist upon request.

Basically, you request the Triple Grid as normal, adding a line in the beginning: “Legions of Michael: grid level one, spherical, my house. Destroyer Force Angels: grid level two, spherical, my house. Ze’Or Continuum: grid level three, spherical, my house. Circle Security: grid level four, spherical, my house.”

Proceed with the grid, requesting the Destroyer Force Angels to spin their grid, the Legions of Michael to infuse it. Then, you request the following:

“Ze’Or Continuum, please set your grid for harmonization and optimization of electrical, magnetic, and gravitational frequencies. Please ensure that my fields remain harmonized with all of the electronic and mechanical devices in my space, and that I and the devices in my space remain harmonized in frequency with any electromagnetic surges, ley-line activity, Schumann Resonance, and any other electro- magneto-gravitational events and conditions occurring in this area. Thank you.”

You then request Circle Security to seal the grid as normal.

Triple/Quad Grid: Individual Field Version

“Legions of Michael: grid level one, spherical, my fields. Grace Elohim: grid level two, spherical, my fields. Circle Security: grid level three, spherical, my fields.

“Grace Elohim: please fill your grid with your energies, releasing astral entities, adverse electromagnetic frequencies, fear, disharmony, anger, adverse astrological influences, expectation, frustration, viruses, fungi, bacteria, worry, astral distortions, miscommunication, sadness, enemy patterning, scarcity, loneliness, karmic monads, and anything that distorts the spiritual signature or clear communication with Spirit. Release anything that hasn’t been mentioned in this or any other language, but which you know needs to leave my fields at this time.” (These are just a few suggestions. Fill in whatever is needed according to your situation). Then, “Spirit: I ask you to release all energies, entities, thoughtforms, emotions, cellular memory, orientations, pictures of reality, devices, intrusions and effects in my body and fields that are not of my core Divine essence, NOW!”

When the clearing feels complete, “Thank you.”

“Legions of Michael, please infuse your grid with the energies of Grace, Purity, Faith, Hope, Peace, Liberty, Harmony, and Victory Elohim. Infuse with love, intimacy, the Unified Chakra, centeredness, clarity, full connection with Spirit, tolerance, clear communication, health, wealth, following Spirit without hesitation, mastery, sovereignty, living Heaven, and anything else that hasn’t been mentioned in this or any other language, but which you know needs to be in my fields at this time. Please seal your grid. Thank you.” (Again more suggestions. Fill in whatever you need, according to your situation.)

“Circle Security, realign your grid to harmonize with upper-dimensional gridworks. Release all distortions and parasites on the grids. Infuse frequencies for clearer communication with Spirit. Seal grid. Thank you.”

The Triple/Quad Grid, Individual Field Version, is a good one to use when you’re outside, when you’re travelling between gridded spaces, or anytime you feel you need to get clearer. It can be infused into a crystal and worn around your neck or on your person; when you feel like renewing the Grid, just request the deva of the crystal to “Renew Individual Grid.” You might need to do a full version once a week-otherwise, renewing it one or more times a day can be done as outlined above and is still effective. You can also add the optional Ze’Or Grid, as outlined in the Quad Grid section of the “Triple Grid: Field Version”, above.

In my next blog, I will share instructions for my other favorite space clearing technique – The Violet Flame.

Until then, enjoy playing with this one and see if you notice a difference when you use it on yourself, on your loved ones and in your home.

The Truth Behind Feng Shui Space Clearings & Blessing Ceremonies

This blog is about one of my favorite things in Feng Shui.  It involves something that most people never think about: clearing the energetic imprint of a space and then blessing it. There are entire books written on the subject of space clearing alone. However, for the purposes of this blog, I am only going to describe the way it is used by the Black Hat Sect Tibetan Buddhist Feng Shui practitioner. Try saying that three times fast!

First, let me tell you why you might want to do a space clearing ceremony. We all know that energy is present in our homes, and I’m not talking about the kind you get from the electric company.  In the form of chi energy, it either meanders through your home or it dashes around like a boomerang.  How it flows depends on how the home is designed, but what about the energy of emotions?  Anyone who has ever gone from zen to crazy in 2.5 seconds knows how quickly and potent emotional energy can be.

In our homes, this emotional energy sticks around, even after the dust of an argument has settled. However, arguments are not the only way that emotional energy effects your home.  Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

Has your home ever been burglarized?

Has anyone ever been assaulted in your home?

Has anyone ever died in your home? (very common in older homes)

Was your home built on or near a cemetary?

Is it near a church or funeral home?

When something tragic happens in your home, that energy becomes palpable. I once did a space clearing at a 100 year old house.  The homeowner was aware that several previous inhabitants had died in the home. It may not be the easiest thing to talk about, but it really is important to know the history of your home.  If you don’t know the history, it is better to clear it all out just in case.

In a standard Feng Shui interior space clearing, we use two main ceremonies: Smoking the Orange Peels and Sealing the Doors.  In the Smoking Orange Peels cure, the smoke combined with the Three Secrets Reinforcement intentions, clears out the negative energy  from the space. The second step involves employing the Sealing the Doors cure.   This prevents the negative energy from re-entering.  This ceremony is especially important if your home or business has ever been robbed. I hear so many people tell me that they have been robbed not once, but two or three times. To prevent it from continuing to happen, it is necessary to get rid of that energy once and for all.  And finally, if you live in a home that has unwelcome spirit energy, this is definitely the ceremony of choice.

Once the inside in complete, the real fun begins.  A Blessing Ceremony encourages growth, luck and prosperity. This is often done when moving into a new home or business location, during times of bad luck, as a cure for predecessor problems or when under spiritual attack.  A Blessing Ceremony uses rice, cinnabar, high proof “spirits” and the recitation of the Ten Powerful mantras during the Three Secrets Reinforcements to charge the rice mixture.  The rice then becomes food for the hungry ghosts and represents seeds of blessings and desired outcomes that we ‘plant’ with our intention to create the life we want.

While anyone can learn to do these type of space and blessing ceremonies with a little training, hiring a certified Feng Shui practitioner can take the guess work out of it so that you can focus on the most important of the Three Secrets, the actions that you desire to see made manifest!
