A 2018 Nautilus Silver Award Winner for Body, Mind & Spirit Practices
In this comprehensive guide to crafting your own spiritual intentions, rituals, and blessings, urban shaman Mama Donna draws upon a variety of world cultures to show how to transform your environment into a sanctified haven. Spiritual blessings of our surroundings can help enhance our daily lives, from processing emotions and releasing negative energy to setting the stage for our fondest dreams to come true.
Your immediate surroundings are the psychic as well as physical spaces that you occupy in the world -- they house not just your body but your energy, your thoughts, your demeanor, your spirit, your deeds, and your legacy. Shouldn't the energetic atmosphere within your walls support you emotionally and spiritually as well? A personalized blessing ceremony engenders an aura of hope and the possibility of positive new beginnings, creating a safe milieu conducive to regeneration. Times of celebration and transition -- receiving dinner guests, hosting a family get-together, traveling to a new locale, moving offices or homes -- also deserve to be sanctified. This book is your guide to creating a warm home and blessing your space for any occasion.

Have you ever entered a room and it just didn't feel right, yet you couldn't explain why? Do you sense a natural comfort with some people but are immediately stressed by others? The truth is that we're all influenced far more than we realize by the invisible energy of the people and places around us. This, along with difficult experiences in your past that still weigh you down, can keep you from being a creative force in your life.Clearing is a gentle but powerful way to release the old stress you're still carrying from your life history, as well as transform how you're affected by the energy around you each day. Many people experience immediate shifts in their energy during a clearing, and significant change often unfolds in the days and weeks afterward. In fact, clearing has even been described as "accelerated meditation" because it can lead to a sense of calm and happiness that typically results only after years of a mindfulness practice.In this simple, elegant guide, Jean Haner teaches you, in easy-to-follow steps, how to clear your own energy or that of any person, as well as bring harmony to the energy of the spaces you inhabit, so you can reclaim your vitality and joy, and open up infinite new possibilities in life. Healers, intuitives, energy workers, highly sensitive people, and anyone who just wants to optimize their energy and live their best life will find this to be the perfect training. Jean refines energy clearing to its pure essence--the power of the compassionate heart
