The difference between space clearing & clutter clearing


Space clearing

Moving energy present in a space, stopping old draining energy from imprinting on our current life.

Space clearing is the art of clearing and revitalizing energies in buildings.

The term “space clearing” has passed into the English language as a generic term for all kinds of energy-clearing techniques, but originally it was the name Karen Kingston coined to describe the specific ceremony she pioneered and developed since 1978.

Involves the use of various techniques such as clapping and belling, done in a particular way and a precise order.

Clutter clearing

Moving objects, giving them a home, organizing them into storage clearly organized, rehoming, or simply letting go, is a process of fully organizing your home so you know exactly where every item is.

Clutter clearing is one of the recommended steps to prepare for a space-clearing ceremony. It can also be done by itself, with no intention of doing a space-clearing ceremony or even the knowledge that such a ceremony exists.


It primarily involves clearing physical objects from a space, although there are also deeper levels that address mental, emotional, and spiritual types of clutter.

People generally begin with physical level clutter clearing and then progress to the other less tangible but equally important types. 

On my first visit to your home, I may instruct you to work on clutter clearing before I proceed with a Space clearing ceremony.

There are 4 categories of clutter:

1. Items you do not use or love

2. Collection of untidy or disorganised

3. Too many things in too small a space

4. Anything unfinished.

What does your home feel like? 

Do you enjoy living there?

Do other people enjoy visiting your home or do you never get visitors?

Your home is a box of energy! Which can be great or extremely disruptive!

If you've ever had the experience of walking into a room after there has just been an argument, you know that you can literally feel it hanging in the air.

People sometimes say 'You could have cut the air with a knife!', meaning that the atmosphere was so dense it was as if the argument were physically tangible.


Who needs space clearing?

Everyone! on one lever or another. There are very few buildings in the world that are so well designed that they don't need regular space clearing.

Many people now choose to make space clearing part of their regular home maintenance so that their space is energetically as well as physically clean and clear. 

How often does space clearing need to be done?

Once a year is standed practice. but if there is a major life-changing experience such as a loss of a loved one, or a major change in your life such as the end of a relationship, job etc. or just seem to be going through a difficult time, then a space clearing exercise will be needed more often. 



The power your home can hold

Clearing the space on an Energy level

Energetically, everything that ever happens in a building goes out in ripples like the effect of a stone being dropped in a pond.

These emotions become trapped and imprinted in the fabric and structure of the home, in the walls, floor, ceiling, furniture, and other objects. Over time being left to its own device, this energy can become very heavy and stagnant even manipulating those who live in this space.


Everyone creates a certain amount of etheric debris on a daily basis, which leaves a stagnant residue in their home in the same way as everyday living creates cleaning and tidying on a physical level. 

But repetitive actions and behaviors are deeply imprinted, and events accompanied by strong emotions or trauma are the most strongly imprinted of all.
