Helping your pet find balance


When I work with animals, I often receive signs that they are somehow feeling out of harmony. This is shown in a variety of ways during animal communication sessions. It can be as simple as seeing flickering images...as if someone is changing the channel very quickly on a television, and I'm unable to grasp what I am looking at. It may be either static or blurry images, or a screen filled with noise. It's often accompanied by feelings of anxiety in my stomach or a rushing sound around me, like wind or when I'm about to fall off a cliff. Yes, it can be quite intense.


Animals, and people, can pick up on feelings of stress, anger, sadness, worry and a myriad of other things. This will shift the energy field (auric field) all around and may cause them to become very uncomfortable and even sick. It could be due to issues with the animal or the guardian that they live with. There may be arguments, depression-induced fear or believing in something that is untrue. If this happens, it's time to do a clearing. What is a clearing? It is a purposeful way of welcoming good energy into your home, and it's very simple to do.


How to clear the energy


One way to clear energy is to perform a simple clearing. There are several ways to do this. Find one of the methods below that works for you.



1. You can set a new intention for your home


Before you do anything else, set an intention for your home. What do you want your space to help you release? How do you want it to feel?


As an example, you could say, "My intention is to cleanse negative energy from my home, so I am focused and productive", or "My intention is to release my ex's energy and feel peaceful again."



2. Burn dried herbs


You can simply light a dried herb of your choice in a fire-safe container and blow it out. The orange embers will continue to burn. Fan the embers until smoke fills every crevice in the room. If you suffer from asthma or are sensitive to smoke, skip this tip and use plants to clear your space instead (see tip No. 8).



3. Place crystals in your home


Black tourmaline and hematite are two stones that can be placed around your home to clear negative energy.



4. Walk through your space making noise


In order to break up negative energy, drums, gongs, and even clapping hands can help. Make a full loop by playing an instrument (or clapping) towards the walls at your front door and moving clockwise through the inner perimeter of your home.



5. Burn incense


Burning Palo Santo incense is thought to be a powerful energy cleanser; light one end of a stick and spread the smoke as you would with herbs.



6. Salt is a great way to clean your house


In addition to sterilizing cutting boards and wounds (ouch! ), salt also clears negative energy. Here are some ways to use salt around your home:


  • Spray every room with sea salt dissolved in water in a spray bottle.

  • A thin line of sea salt should be placed in front of your home's entrance or around your property's perimeter.

  • On your altar, place a small dish of salt.

  • To clean surfaces and floors, dissolve salt in water.

  • Use Himalayan salt lamps.



7. Freshen up the place with a lemony scent


Here are some unexpected ways you can use lemon at home. Lemon is naturally invigorating and uplifting.


  • Steam your space with lemon peels simmered in water.

  • Fill your home with small dishes filled with fresh lemon slices.

  • Diffuse lemon essential oils.



8. Bring the smell of plants into your space


You can also dispel negativity with sage, lavender, and frankincense essential oils.


If you don't want to use your diffuser, fill a clean spray bottle with witch hazel and distilled water, add 20-30 drops of your favorite essential oil, shake, and mist your home. Or buy fresh plants like peace lilies, aloe vera, or English ivy and place them in vases throughout your house.



9. Imagination


When you breathe in deeply, visualize a glowing, golden light within your chest space. Extend that light outside of your body, and then spread it throughout your living space with the intention of clearing all energetic congestion.



10. Organize your clutter


Keep your home clean and clutter-free to prevent negative energy from congregating. Last but not least, open your windows to let fresh air in.

Have you ever noticed how the energy in your home can affect the people and animals around you? If your favorite pet starts shedding hair, stops eating, begins acting strange or just seems really down in the dumps, try doing a simple clearing of the space. That means you and your pets too! After you have finished this ritual of purifying, see how it's changed the energy. You might find that it's shifted into a more positive way.


The goal is to make a difference in your life, and the lives of those you love. If you know someone who always struggles with negativity, please share this blog post with them. They deserve happiness, just like we all do.
