Have you ever had an experience of feeling a cold area in your house? No, not temperature wise. You could potentially feel a cold spot even in the depth of summer heat. What does this mean, when you feel a strange coolness, or have other impressions in a house?
Feeling a presence in your home
There are many ways you could detect a presence in your home:
- Feeling a cold area
- Feeling dizzy or light-headed in a particular space
- Experiencing strong emotions that are not related to anything currently happening
What does this mean?
Energy can linger, outside of the confines of time and space. In other words, energy can remain in a house long after an event.
When people think of an “event”, they’re usually talking about something disturbing or uncomfortable. Whoever complains because their house feels happy? When does anyone ever show concern about “the feeling of love” in their home?
No, not necessarily.
Several years ago I was called upon to help explain and clear a house that had been purchased as a flip house. The prior owner died in the house, taking his own life. Out of respect, I will not share details, only what I have learned through this experience.
It took 2 sessions to clear this house. First, I walked through the house, finding areas where the owner “bonded” to the house. I helped him release his circumstances and conflicts by bringing in the support of Mother Mary. While walking the house I passed through a cold spot and felt light headed. The new owners later shared with me that this cold spot was where the prior owner took his life.
Later the owners called me as a follow-up. I did not have to revisit the home. Working on a soul level lifts the confinement of time and space, and I was able to work with the energy from my own home. What I found as I reexamined the energy: his emotional energy remained. His soul was not present, only the emotionally charged energy. Once I cleared that “cloud” the house felt much warmer and welcoming.
A soul or spirit can make an appearance and may be felt in one way or another. On a positive note, many clients and friends have shared their experiences of feeling a visit from a loved one who has passed. It could be symbolic: a single leaf remaining on the tree outside your window; feeling a hand on your shoulder, or simply knowing that soul is with you.
A spirit doesn’t always appear in the place of their passing. On several occasions, after my mother’s passing, I would walk into my own home and feel her presence as I entered. “Yes mom, what do you need?” Spirits can also show up to help you release an old, unspoken conflict. Those encounters are often challenging to decipher since they are not explained by current events or feelings.
Sometimes a spirit is there to resolve an incomplete experience, or they are just “stuck”. Oftentimes all it takes is a simple hello and calling in spiritual guidance and support to help them on their way. This doesn’t happen all that often, most souls allow themselves to be freed from their everyday stories, emotions, and conflicts.
A Cloud of Energy
In my younger years, before any training to enhance my intuitive skills, I had an experience that remains within my thoughts to this day. I stepped into what can only be described as a “vortex of energy”. This was the place where my brother passed away. His heart stopped, at an early age. What I encountered was not his spirit, but the release of emotions as soul and body parted ways. I left the room, walked to a different part of the house, and worked with God to help free his energy.
What can help when you feel something or someone is there?
I’ve worked with clearing energy from those who have passed, as well as present-day conflicts with neighbors, family, etc. Energy is energy. Some of the strongest tools I have to offer are compassion, understanding, and the power of free-will. You can always set up an appointment for a clearing, healing, or blessing for your home. Oh yes, and clearing, blessing, and healing for the people and pets as well! Click here to schedule.
For your own personal use, here are some ideas:
- Use white sage and sweetgrass blessings
- Bring the energy into the present using forgiveness
- Use honor, give the energy permission to release
- Know your boundaries, and the boundaries of others
- Call for support: great spirit, mother earth, Jesus, God, Buddha, guardian angels.
- Recite the Lords Prayer:
“Pray then like this: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.'”
