Space clearing is a way to clear out and revitalize the energy in your home. It provides clarity and order. During a space clearing ceremony, the subtle energies in your home are purified, cleared, and revitalized.
Every event leaves an invisible mark on a space or room that lingers as fine energetic vibrations. Since we are in a state of constant resonance with our surroundings, this energetic debris also has an impact on us. This explains why we feel uncomfortable in certain homes or places. During space clearing, rooms, apartments, houses, and offices are cleared of interfering energies and revitalized, and the existing energy qualities in the spaces are energetically cleared and neutralized. The consecration at the end of the ceremony instills higher frequencies in the space, thus lifting the energy in the room and giving it a clear and harmonious atmosphere.
Apart from our bodies, our invisible thoughts, emotions, and experiences are always with us in any space that we occupy. These energies can be very burdening without us even realizing it. All too often the invisible obstacles and blockages are what prevent us from moving forward in our lives or keep us from feeling comfortable in a room or situation. Space clearing identifies these blockages. This can refer to applying the art of feng shui to the living space or can also involve any other aspect of one’s personal life: our relationships, our working environment, our particular living conditions. Sometimes we feel like it is impossible to continue living the same way. This might be because we have lost a person who was close to us. Sometimes there doesn’t seem to be anything blocking us, but we still feel stuck in certain areas of our lives. Space clearing is one of the most effective methods for clearing these blockages and arranging the energies around us so that our lives flows well and moves us forward – instead of holding us captive.
Space clearing is recommended as a complement to a feng shui or clutter-clearing consultation and is an excellent way to prepare for a new phase in your life, changes in your personal life or career, or to bring closure to a difficult time or period of illness.
When dealing with the topic of space clearing, you will inevitably come across the name of Karen Kingston. She is the founder of The Karen Kingston School of Space Clearing in Cheltenham, UK. Her works Creating Sacred Space With Feng Shui and Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui have long been considered required reading on the topics of feng shui, clutter clearing, and space clearing. Space clearing is the art of clearing, revitalizing, and consecrating a space and stands for the art of clearing and revitalizing energies and buildings. According to Karen Kingston, the world’s leading expert on space clearing –- a special form of feng shui: feng shui is the art of balancing and harmonizing the flows of energy in a space to maximize the potential for those who use it.
A space clearing ceremony can have far-reaching effects. Old blockages are cleared, at the same time freeing up room for new energies that previously did not have access to the space. Karen Kingston says that there are three main reasons for disturbed energy flows in a room: physical debris, the energy of previous occupants, and clutter. With a space clearing ceremony, you will be supported in gaining new momentum for your life. Everything burdening you will be tidied up. Your relationships – whether personal or professional – will experience a new surge of energy, new drive, and new enthusiasm.
Karen Kingston also talks about consecration in the context of space clearing. A space clearing ceremony consecrates the house or building where it is held. It thus is no coincidence that her second book, first published in 1996, is entitled Creating Sacred Space With Feng Shui. The bestseller has been translated into 25 languages and has sold over 1.5 million copies.
Create sacred space with feng shui. Karen Kingston has also influenced and inspired the work of Annette Kurtz. Annette Kurtz completed the rigorous Space Clearing Practitioner Training with Karen Kingston in 2006. For over ten years, Annette Kurtz has been practicing in the areas of space clearing, clutter clearing, and feng shui with tremendous enthusiasm and a deep sense of connectedness and gratitude. Annette Kurtz is one of five globally active and certified space-clearing practitioners trained by The Karen Kingston School of Space Clearing in the UK.
Karen Kingston has devoted over 30 years of her life to the art of feng shui. Feng shui can be translated as “wind and water” and is a millennia-old Chinese tradition that was first used in China over 3,000 years ago. Feng shui has to do with harmoniously and consciously living together with Mother Earth and achieving the highest quality of life for all people. It is the art of balance, harmonization, and increasing the natural flows of energy. Since this energy permeates all things, this age-old art can be applied to every aspect of our lives.
Space clearing expert and bestselling author Karen Kingston spent twenty years living in Bali. Our ancestors knew and understood the language of invisible energy flows quite well. In some cultures, like in Bali, for example, this knowledge still exists and is practiced each day by the people who live there. The people in Bali live in harmony with the physical, visible world as well as with the hidden world of invisible energies. In her books, Karen Kingston describes how the daily sacrifices to the house shrines and the wonderful, highly developed ceremonies in the island’s 20,000 temples ensure that balance and harmony are preserved on the entire island. In 2010, Karen Kingston returned to her home country of England and released an updated, expanded version of her standard work Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui as an e-book in 2011.
My clients come to me with all kinds of situations. Often their focus is on personal and professional areas of their lives or they are going through phases of their lives accompanied by major changes: family problems, career challenges, internal imbalance, or an upcoming move. In all of these cases, space clearing, clutter clearing, or feng shui can provide the necessary momentum.
Everything is interconnected. When a life-changing event occurs – a separation, a move, a job loss, or even the death of a loved one – space clearing can help to restore inner balance. Sometimes it is necessary to break old ties and habits before something new can come into our lives. A typical symptom of our times is that we have more on our plates than we can handle: a demanding job, a constant lack of time, expecting too much of ourselves. Lots of things end up getting neglected. When we also have old, stagnant energies in our environments, in most cases even from predecessors, then our everyday lives can become stuck. Space clearing, clutter clearing, and feng shui can bring clarity into both in the personal and professional areas of one’s life. There are countless stories that attest to the success of a space-clearing ceremony for clearing blockages in clients’ families as well as in their personal or professional lives. Everything is in relation to everything; everyone is in relation to everyone. The clearer the relationships are, the more harmoniously energy will flow. An untidy home reflects an untidy inner life. And vice versa.
Space clearing, clutter clearing, and feng shui can be helpful in these areas of life:

The extent to which our surroundings influence our emotional state often only becomes clear to us when we begin to grapple with it. Everything that surrounds us is full of life, and this life generates energetic fields that have an effect on us. If we feel restless or blocked, this could be due to a disrupted flow of these energies.
Feng shui is the teaching of the harmonious and conscious coexistence of all people and things. The central approach is pulsing energy, frequently known as qi (chi). When this energy can move freely without interruption, the highest quality of life can move in. Our homes are thus a reflection of our spirit. This has a reciprocal effect. If we are not doing well, this will be reflected in our environment. If the natural flow of energy is disrupted in our environment, then this can affect our spirit. Residential spaces that observeing the furniture placement according to the principles of feng shui provide visible harmony and inner peace. Space clearing thus always follows the intuitive teachings of this millennia-old philosophy. After all, harmony can only be created once all elements are in synergy with one another.
Space clearing, a special form of feng shui, provides new momentum for what can take place in a space. It releases energies. Buildings or spaces are consecrated in festive ceremonies to create sacred spaces that are in harmony with the rhythm of all elements. In a setting of complete peace and contemplation, human and space come together.
Clutter clearing is the material version of space clearing, so to speak. It has to do with very specific things like untidiness, chaos, and disorder. All of these visible disruptive factors tie up the power and energies that keep you from moving forward in life. But they happen to be where they are for specific reasons.
Annette Kurtz engages in a conversation with you to uncover these reasons. Usually, the disorder has to do with specific events in the past. Unconsciously, but visibly, this has allowed chaos to build up around you. During clutter clearing, you learn to let go of this stuff. After a clutter-clearing ceremony, you will literally feel a sense of relief and feel lighter.
Clutter can be defined as junk, disorder, or confusion. In the context of space clearing, clutter refers to everything that has been surrounding us for a long time, even if we no longer perceive it. The clutter is frequently items from the past that consciously or unconsciously remind us of something that ended a long time ago. It is usually associated with pent-up emotions, outdated ways of thinking, or deeply ingrained thought patterns. It is then that these things – without our noticing – have a tremendous influence on our well-being. They tie up our vital energy, hold us back, and impede our personal development, and keep us from creating space for the things that matter most to us and from moving joyously ahead with our lives.
The visible, material disorder or clutter that we perceive around us can almost always be transferred to our inner emotional state. The greater the chaos is around us, the more difficult it is to find inner balance. Clutter causes many clients to feel overwhelmed and to experience with clutter a sense of overwhelm, shame, frustration, tiredness, exhaustion, and lack of flow and harmony. If we are able to get rid of the chaos around us, then we will also be able to restore our inner clarity.
Clutter clearing is a good way to prepare for a space clearing consultation. In working with my clients I help my clients to uncover what is holding them back and what blocks the flow in their lives. This leads to a realization that was not previously possible and triggers a transformation. By gaining a completely new perspective on their own situation, my clients are able to find a new path to inner harmony and manifest lasting change.
My very personal experience of trying to strike a balance between the international business world and a desire for inner harmony has made me the person I am today. Despite enjoying success in my career, I always felt like something was missing. It was this feeling that led me to travel to Indonesia many years ago. There I experienced a revelation and began to study traditional cultures of the Far East.
I trained under various instructors – experiences that opened my consciousness in a way that allows me to help others. Karen Kingston, with whom I completed the rigorous Space Clearing Practitioner Training in 2006, has shaped and significantly influenced my work. Today I am one of five globally active and certified consultants with the privilege to use the title Space Clearing Practitioner from The Karen Kingston School of Space Clearing in the UK.
