A Space Clearing Ceremony.
This was an absolutely stunning town house in Islington spread over five floors. It had been previously owned by the Roman Catholic church until the 1960’s and was a place where pregnant unmarried girls and young women from Ireland were sent to have their babies. They were then strongly encouraged to give these babies up for adoption, at this time there was no other choice.
Michelle, the owner of the property herself had Irish heritage and felt called to bring healing to the land of this place. As we opened sacred space and I spent time in the house, we tuned into the qualities of uncertainty, deep shame, fear, desperation and feeling controlled. There had been very little choice for these young women, as it was perceived that these babies would be given a ‘better chance of life’ in Holborn and the surrounding areas.
At first, it wasn’t apparent where the heaviness lay, except that I was shown that there was a deep root of pain right into the centre of the house footprint going into the earth. The pendulum showed me that there was heavy energy in the first three floors of the front rooms in the property but these rooms were easily cleared with my crystal and bell.
The Shamanic Ceremony.
It was very easy working with Michelle, infant it felt as though the whole day’s work was a gift from heaven in more ways than one!. First we put up an altar facing North West, this was guided to me by the ancestors. The altar had spring water, fresh flowers from the abundance of the beautiful walled garden, chocolate offerings for the land spirits and the ancestors and many crystals. Michelle set up the altar and had also brought a labyrinth with her, handmade by herself and a friend. The opening of the labyrinth faced the trees at the back of the property.
Next, I journeyed to the root of the pain and cleared it with my vogelwand, whilst Michelle walked the labyrinth over and over again in honour of all the women and girls who had suffered under the roof of this house. Afterwards, we felt that there had been kindness but that there has also been a few domineering and controlling individuals on the church side. I later, connected the space to the christ consciousness grid and asked the star beings to take extra care of this place.
We played some music, the essence of which for me was about empowerment on behalf of all young women, stepping into their sexuality.
An Ayni Despacho
We then created an ayni despacho for the house and women, using different coloured rose petals from the garden. Yellow in particular was for healing. An ayni despacho harmonises the energies and brings them into balance. We blew in our own wishes and prayers for ourselves, our families and friends plus our wider projects and groups/communities. This was such a beautiful experience, knowing that we were bringing everything into balance with the living energy of the universe.
The Despacho Fire
At first the despacho burnt easily and then we struggled to keep it alight, but we persevered and this eventually burnt to ash. After it had burnt, we felt that the work was complete and I experienced the energy of the land moving like a clear river under the house once more.
We travelled back to Lewes on the train, chatting and laughing – A day’s work well done! Thank you Michelle for inviting me to work on your land, it was a great honour and I hope that there will be more opportunities like this in the future, as I really enjoyed this experience.
