If youíre like most, you love to shop at used furniture stores and antique shops. You can often find some pretty spectacular bargains or items that will enhance your home. When you purchase second-hand items, you are bringing home the chi or energy vibrations of those who owned the piece before you. You are in luck though, you donít have to bypass these gently used things, you just have to clear them of the energy they hold and replace it with your own person chi.
Clearing energy from previous owners is especially important it the items came from a home where there was a death on the premises, a divorce, bankruptcy, illness or any other negative situation. If you donít know the circumstances behind the item being for sale, do a clearing to protect you and your family as a precaution. In other words, anytime you bring a pre-owned object into your home, clear the energy of the previous owner even if it comes from a very happy environment. Itís better to clear the energy of others and start fresh with your own personal chi.
So, howís the best way to do this you ask. Well, there are many things you can do to clear energy, even negative energy with very little preparation. It is, however, important to do this before you put the item into use in your home.
One of the simplest ways to clear energy vibrations is to set the object in the sun for 24 hours. If there is a full moon, you can place the object in direct moon light overnight. If this isnít possible because of the weather or no access to a suitable outdoor area, place in a window with direct sunlight or moonlight.
Another way to clear energy is with smudging. Use a sage smudging bundle. Follow a sacred smudging ceremony to clear negative energy and replace with your own positive energy.
Energy vibrations are susceptible to noise so you can stir the vibrations by ringing a bell, beating on a drum or pan, or clapping your hands loudly over the object. Complete this by playing soft music or ocean sounds to create a positive energy flow.
Now that you are aware of ways to replace negative energy vibrations in second-hand items, find some terrific treasures for your home and give them your own vibrations.
