How do I create a safe space to work in?
This is a question that I have been asked several times lately. So here a few ideas of how you can achieve this.
When you do any therapy or energy work, especially when Crystals are involved, it is paramount to set firm boundaries and create a space that is safe for everyone to enjoy.
Before you start any work, be it for yourself, for a client or a group of people, go into the room and make sure it is clean.
With clean I mean both physically and energetically.
Physical cleanliness is something we are all used to. However, something you might not have thought about: Are there any items in the room that could be regarded as offensive or disruptive to anyone due to participate in the session? These could be pictures, literature, objects but also smells and sounds (ticking clocks are a favourite).
How do we clean a space energetically?
Go into the room and see how it makes you feel. Do you feel happy, safe and uplifted? Or does the room feel stuffy, prickly and dull? Either way it won’t do any harm to take steps to raise the vibration in the space. There are several ways of achieving this. Here are a few ideas:
- Playing uplifting music such as the ‘Ave Maria’ or Gregorian chants
- Ring bells, tingshas or clap your hands
- Lighting a Candle or a Himalayan salt lamp
- Use an Essence spray
- Use essential oils such as Lavender or Frankincense in an oil burner
- Place uplifting Crystals such as Apophyllite or Celestite in the room
- Place some fresh flowers or plants in the room
- Place an object or picture holding Love Light vibration in the room
- Using incense or smudging
Once you have raised the vibration in the space to be used you want to keep it that way. Ensure doors and windows are secure so you won’t get any surprise visitors.
Placing a Crystal that has been programmed to be a door protector by the entrance to your work space will ensure that only energies of a high vibration can enter the space.
Using energetic protection for the space to be used is sensible and in my opinion absolutely necessary. There are several ways this can be done. Here are a few ideas:
- Ask for the Archangels to come and protect the space
- Program one or several Crystals to act as protectors of the space
- Use Reiki symbols (ask your Reiki master if you do not know which ones to use)
- Use your intent!
When it comes to working with energy your Intent is your most powerful tool. In my experience intent is most potent when you combine the will of the Heart and Mind with that of the Soul. Once these three aspects are aligned there is not much that can stand in it’s way. This takes practice.
If you are good at visualising then use your inner sight to create safe walls, if your talent is more kinestetic then you can use your pointed finger or a Crystal wand to draw circles or lines around your space. If sound is your way of feeling your way through life then you can imagine a sound barrier.
Let your imagination flow! There are as many different options of protecting a space as you can think of. The main thing is that you find one that works for YOU and those who will share the space with you.
It’s no good waving your arms and drawing circles if this makes you feel silly. You need to be in your power place and comfort zone to do this.
Once you have finished go into the space and really FEEL it. Does it feel safe and nurturing? If so great, if not why not? Then go and rectify what needs to be done.
There is no need to spend a lot of time and effort. You will find that you become quicker and more efficient with time. It’s just like learning to drive a car – complicated at first but then it becomes automatic.
If the above is full of spelling and grammatical errors – in my defence: English is not my first language.
If you don’t agree with the content: It’s all a matter of opinion and this is all I am stating here. We are all different and therefore entitled to do things the way we feel is right at this moment in time.
Wishing you a fantastic day.
Much Love & Blessings
