Nevertheless, on move in day I was armed with my sage and copal. I was ready to bless the space and clear out anything that was not for the highest and best. To my shock and relief, none of it was necessary. The office space was energetically clean and sterile, a blank slate.
At least at first. That changed VERY quickly.
Within days of moving in, the practitioners and many of my students began to notice (as well as comment on) that there was A LOT of Spirit activity. No one felt threatened. The Spirits seemed to be loving and well intentioned. There just seemed to be a lot of it. And I naively thought the energy was high because there are such amazing light workers here and that the Spirits had shown up because they were excited at what we are creating here. The Spirits were good after all, so why should I worry?
It wasn’t until the Spirits began to be distracting that I realized something was amiss. During a lunchtime meditation I found myself having to close the door because a little girl was playing hide and seek and kept vying for my attention. Later that same day during a practice circle, several accomplished student mediums found themselves communicating with Spirits whom the sitter didn’t seem to recognize or connect to… Something wasn’t right.
It took me a couple days, but then it hit me… I had been so worried about the energy that might already be in the office space I didn’t even consider the energies I was bringing with me. The Spirits that had been hanging out were MY CLIENTS.
Over the years, I have found that it is not uncommon for Spirits to show up early for a reading. I’ve always joked that the back room of my home (the space I do readings in) is my “waiting room.” My rule has always been, as long as they stay in my reading room and don’t bother me, my husband or my babies (fur babies included!) they are welcome to hang out there as long as they like. I hadn’t thought what this would mean when I moved into my new office.
What did my new office mean for the Spirits? It meant they suddenly had somewhere else to hang out. And at the office, because I didn’t specify, they now not only had more than triple the space, they also suddenly had the opportunity to interact with people… The office had become a giant waiting room for my Spirit Guests to wander around and poke anyone who was around. Not COOL!
After realizing this, I immediately took action and began to clean up my mess. A “waiting room” has been created and there is now only a couple of places Spirit can hang out. And under no circumstances are they are not allowed to bother the other practitioners or students.
Now back to the peace, tranquility and quiet.
