If only we had gotten there sooner. . . .
Small problems can mask huge problems, like a wallpaper stain over a rotted board. Often we are asked to clear the energy of former owners or tenants. The violent husband (see the holes in the doors). The suicidal drug addict. The sufferer of some strange disease. What can be chilling is not only these unfortunate people's problems, but what we discover that may have contributed to them, such as toxic electromagnetic fields that set the stage for depression and illness. Clearing the unhappiness of former residents is not enough if underlying structural problems remain for the current inhabitants to stumble over.
Certain electrical wiring protocols can cause huge magnetic fields. We'll track them for you with our gaussmeter, and tell you where to point an electrician who advocates a safer, healthier circuitry. Living in strong magnetic fields is like living in a house with a stereo blaring 24/7. And wiring mistakes are surprisingly common, unfortunately, even with new construction. Other problems can come from the wiring to the whole condo complex going under your floor, being the first home off the transformer, living along a highway, large electrical fields coming from the neighbors through the water pipes, a nearby cell phone tower, etc. We can help you look at the burden your body is under from your own appliances and computer-related gadgets. And we'll measure the radiation coming from the neighborhood. Shielding can help somewhat, and common sense a great deal.
Harm can be citywide, e.g. Estes Park's water supply runs through large pipes directly under huge electrical lines from a reservoir to a lake housing a big power plant. It almost seems that a fridge should run if plugged into Estes' tap water!
I recently read of a group that raised private funds to preserve a Civil War battlefield, which would have otherwise underlaid new homes and businesses. Would you move into a home on top of a former battlefield? You may have. You might be lucky to have been told about the "original homesteader" of your land, but were you told what natives he displaced? How traumatic was that displacement, not only to the original tribe, but to the land that was treasured and honored in ceremony by these people, only to now be cemented under and ignored?
The dynamics of Indian burial grounds can differ greatly between tribes, according to ceremonies performed there and beliefs held. Dominant culture, with its replaceable hips, bodies "left to science," and genealogical fascination with headstones doesn't attach much spiritual significance to bones. In contrast, many native tribes believe that a soul's ability to transition successfully—and remain on the other side—is connected to the fate of its remains on Earth.
In Colorado, when any bones are unearthed, the Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs must be consulted for possible repatriation of the bones. Colorado has only two Indian reservations, but the Commission must contact all forty-seven tribes who have historically had ties here when bones are unearthed that are not identifiable as to lineage. If you find human remains on your land, call the police, who will have the local coroner examine them and start the process. Then reclaim the land for your own purposes by having it cleared.
In some tribes, elaborate rituals are performed in the cemetery not only at the time of burial, but periodically, to please or appease the spirits of the dead. You can imagine that in communities where ancestors are honored and consulted after their deaths, there can be a temptation for the deceased to stick around and meddle in their offsprings' lives rather than going on. Your home built over such a burial place may not be particularly restful!
In some European countries, it's not unusual for a doctor to prescribe a clearing. Say your late husband died of cancer, and now your new husband has cancer, sleeping on the same side of the same bed in the same room. Coincidence, or noxious "earth rays," a.k.a. ley lines? We work with ley lines, but it's a different planet than our ancestors inhabited. Big transformers and microwave towers release electricity not only through wires or the air, but through the ground, causing electromagnetic waves that travel far. Furthermore, the natural magnetic grid of the planet is shifting.
We relate to natural ley lines, including lines reaching out from "power spots," as flexible conscious beings. The inflexible human-made ones can be very problematic. Often their waveforms will have unnatural jagged edges. And they are regimented like soldiers in their consistency, unresponsive to the play of life trying to interact with them.
Geological formations can affect the well-being of inhabitants. Underground fault lines and underground waterways can be helpful or difficult, or both. Microwave (cell phone) tower emissions have very different repercussions for those living in a granite bowl like Estes Park—playing along the surface like sheet lightning—than for those living on loamy soil in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
When asked to check out land or a building before our clients purchase it, we look for a good match geologically. Does the business need a feeling of solidity—a base from which to launch (bedrock), or the flexibility to catch the currents (nearby water)? A house built on the alluvium of a former river bottom may prove unsettling for a Taurus but feel peaceful to a Pisces.
We've cleared a couple homes in a town in Kansas where extensive underground excavating was done by individual coal miners who didn't always leave maps of their tunnels. Homes have been known to suddenly collapse into big holes. The town has more than its share of instability, socially and economically. Sometimes the clearing of emotions in your home is pretty superficial to the huge hole under it, literally or metaphorically. For peace, you may wish to move.
If needed, we'll bring geological maps and do beneath-the-surface sleuthing for you. With a master's degree in geology, seven years as a district geologist for Florida, six years' service on a county water board, and twenty-five years as a general contractor, Peter can likely uncover any physical problems that may have led to your feeling uneasy on your property.
