Is there a room in your house where the energy is feeling sort of… heavy?

Sounds like you’ve got a little Qi stagnation.  Just like in the meridians of your body, your Qi can get stuck in areas of your house as well.  It can manifest in different ways, sometimes it’s just a cold area, sometimes a scent that’s just off or it can be a room that no one ever spends anytime in.  Use your intuitive and trust it.  This is an easy way to clear A LOT of energy in a room VERY FAST.  This is much more powerful than sage, but it clears in very much the same way.  Think of sage as 4th grade and this is as a senior in high school. space-clearing

 I do these energy clearings at least once a year in at Tao to Wellness and my house as well.

Epsom Salt

Rubbing Alcohol

An old mug or disposable metal pan, no bigger than a bread pan

An additional disposable metal pan bigger than the above

A spray bottle filled with water

An old towel or two


Choose an appropriate place to do your burn.  On the floor and away from furniture, rugs, etc.  You do not want anything within 4 feet of your burn.

Put down towel (folded) and spray lightly with water.  If you’re doing this on a carpet, you may want to have additional layers underneath.  Place larger pan on top of damp towel.  Take the mug or pan you plan to use and put it inside the larger pan, (bigger pan for big rooms or very heavy energy, saves time on clearing a room more than once, but will have a MUCH bigger flame, be careful!) fill mug or smaller pan halfway with Epsom Salt.

Take rubbing alcohol and pour into smaller mug or pan, just covering Epsom salt about ½ to 1 inch.

Now, you are ready to light your fire!

Be very careful, the flame can be very abrupt when you light it.  Keep hair and face away.  Use a long lighter or long matchstick.

Watch the flame, meditate and visualize the room’s energy clearing away.  Let the flame go out naturally.

Much Love,
