Randy and I just returned from a family reunion near Allegheny National Forest.  The scenery was breathtaking.  The cell service was non-existent.  The people who lived and worked at places like “Bob’s Trading Post” were down-to-earth and friendly.  The town of Kane, PA consisted of art deco storefronts begging to be repainted.  Kane is similar to many other past-their-prime towns in rural America.  These are the kind that were established around the time of the Civil War circa 1863.  They enjoyed continual growth in the early part of the 20th century with the population gaining its peak in the 1920s, and then sharply declining as the descendants left the homestead to further their education.  Many would relocate to advance their careers.
We stayed at the Olmsted Manor nestled at the edge of the forest, which reminded me of our recent visit to Asheville.  The wood energy of the trees was cleansing and rejuvenating.  Used primarily as a spiritual retreat, there was a walking labyrinth nearby.  The founders of this area were hardworking, religious and desired to make a better life for their families. 
My husband’s great-grandparents bore 12 children (two of whom died in infancy) and that generation bore 42 grandchildren which bore 113 great-grandchildren which produced 177 great-great-grandchildren. 
Did it ever occur to Andrew and Emma Lindquist how far reaching their progeny would extend?  It made me think that it is important to not only take responsibility for our daily thoughts, actions and beliefs which affect our present life but also how those thoughts will affect the future of the world.  Don’t we want to create a healthy and happy legacy for our children and their children and their children?  As we visited the original homestead I wondered about the stories that the original farmhouse could tell.  Our homes are not just wood and nails.  Those walls hold the invisible energy fields of human thoughts, emotions and intentions. 
Denise Linn, one of my most beloved feng shui teachers who has taught me “Elemental Space Clearing,” outlines a four part plan to create that positive legacy.  1) "Re-establish our connection to the past by exploring our roots and realizing that we are a product of a long and noble lineage of human beings that came before us." 2) "Sort through our heritage by embracing that which strengthens us, and by breaking negative ancestral patterns." 3) "Shift our limiting beliefs about the future at a fundamental level." 4) "Take concrete actions to empower the future."
Look around your room right now and notice what ancestral influences are reflected in your home.  Do they make you feel good, safe and protected?  Are there negative emotions associated with any?
Space clearing is an energetic practice used by ancient civilizations of all cultures.  It is finding its rebirth in our country as people feel the need to clear old negative patterns and create positive ones. Before construction of a new home, before moving into a new home, annual seasonal cleaning, after a misfortune or anytime you want a ‘lift,’ energetically space clearing your living environment would be appropriate.  I can help you with that.  Call me for more information. 
Your thoughts create your actions.  Your actions create your legacy.  Your descendants will reap those seeds for generations to come. xo mo
