The Importance of Personal Space
Vibrational Aura & Room Sprays
B Y P E T E C A S W E L L
FROM EVERYTHING WE ARE and everything we do
It is space which makes this everything possible
Without space we would have nowhere to exist or experience life
Space is the void which contains and affects everything we do, think and feel
Our personal space is one of the most important elements
of our spiritual growth and happiness.
The space we are in affects how we feel.
It can make us feel happy and elated
or it can make us feel sad.
Even the most beautiful settings can feel oppressive
if we do not take care to keep our personal space energised and clear.
Energy and Space
Lower energies harbour repressive patterns and higher energies inspire us to form positive attitudes and viewpoints.
Energetic clutter can build up in our own aura and in our living and work spaces. This can come from our selves, other people or over use of a space. It can come from the outer environment, or the work we are doing. Emails, letters and communications entering our space all bring with them a package of energy which is easily visible to clairvoyants and psychics. All this energy builds up in your personal space or aura and unless there is some way of clearing this space, it can cloud the beauty of life. We build up patterns in a space, some negative and some positive. When we are going through changes old energy can build up in the outer aura as it rises to the surface ready to be cleared away.
There are many physical ways to clear our aura and personal space, from holidays and travel, to taking a walk in the country, or just opening a few windows and cleaning a room. These are all very practical ways but they take time and when we are working with spiritual growth and higher vibrational energies there is a need for something a bit more specialist, which cleans the energy in the room and attunes the energy to higher frequencies.
When we travel we loose many of our old patterns and some of the energetic debris in the aura crumbles away. Our personal space can expand as those old routines and patterns are lost which normally encage and darken our lives. We feel uplifted as our personal space clears from the problems and patterns of our daily life, but as much as we would like to we cannot travel all the time, and its effect can become limited through repetition.
For many years I have cleared my own personal space through meditation and bringing higher energies into my personal space and aura. I have used similar techniques in healing to clear energy and blockages from clients. It has been my personal talent in life to help people clear energetic blockages and debris from their aura. Working with my mother Patricia Caswell I was excited to discover and create a range of highly attuned spiritual vibrational essences which are starting to show me an effective way to clear our personal space, using the essences as sprays. What I loved about using these new essences as sprays was it could be made more widely available to more people. It helped to empower the clients as these sprays were the tool, the missing link which would enable them to attune their aura and space to higher energies to allow clearing to take place. Patricia has been quite amazed at the feedback from this particular range of essences:
When I have sent the bottles to people with clear inner sight, they comment how they can see the bottle glowing, how pure the energy is, and how it has helped them.
Essences and Space
Vibrational essences have come a long way since Bach flower remedies. Not only have the range of essences increased, but generally so has the purity of the plants and the vibrational frequency. Some of the plants sourced today have a much higher energy than the original Bach Flowers and many have developed into more spiritual and higher uses. Along with this increase in vibration have come more uses. They have been used on animals, plants, nature and now, for what I have found them most effective, as clearing sprays. I have used the Light Spirit essences as room and aura sprays for nearly two years and I am always surprised by the number of instances when they become invaluable.
As co founder of Light Spirit Essences I have to be a little biased and prefer to use essences from my own range because I believe them to have the highest spiritual vibration from my experience and from testing with extremely gifted psychics. These essences have been developed into an effective range of room and aura sprays. The range was developed in India by Patricia Caswell, an experienced practitioner and visionary guide.
These essences are diluted into spring water and sprayed around the house in a simple spray bottle, available from most chemists for less than £1. You can add rose water, lavender or citronella or your favourite perfume to the spray. They are so simple to use, just spray around the house or body a few times a day.
When you have many people in a space, or you are introducing changes, or going through a bad time, a room clear spay is invaluable, for keeping a place clear of unwanted, heavy or old energies. Spray the room once or twice a day to set a routine for cleansing your personal space. Not only does the spray change the energy, but the action and positive thought of spraying also has a beneficial effect on the space and on your perception of the space. It re-enforces the process. It is also helpful to re-enforce this process with physical action such as cleaning the space, clearing away old mess, disposing of unnecessary items & clutter, opening windows and decorating or using flowers. These physical processes increase the effectiveness of this process, help stimulate change and re enforce new and positive outlooks.
Once you have used a clearing spray, you can then introduce the appropriate energy into the space. In a spiritual or healing space you can use spiritual room and aura sprays to create an atmosphere suitable for working on higher energies. In the bedroom use a more relaxing spray. The routine of spraying the essence in your spiritual space on a daily basis re-enforces your practice in that area.
In healing centres, surgeries and workplaces you will be amazed at the effect the sprays can have on the collective energy of the space. These are places where a lot of energies come and go and interact. The space can be wearing if the energy is not kept high enough or clean enough. Just like a smelly or dirty room, the energy needs cleaning and maintaining, just like the physical space. In health practices it is particularly important to use sprays or some other method of cleansing the space. People often leave a lot of worry and anxiety behind in these centres. It is vital that the energetic space is kept clear and the vibration kept at a high level to enable practitioners to perform effectively.
You always notice when you go into a room that doesn't feel right when the energy is poor, stale or negative. Any space takes on a certain energy and these sprays help you to adjust and lift the energy in the room to the optimum and keep you happy, stress free and uplifted.
These Essence Sprays remind me of composing music. It is often the quiet sections of music, the spaces between the notes, which create the void, to allow the noise of the instrument to sound so beautiful. It is the same with space. It is this empty space all around which makes everything else we place and do in it create so much fun, laughter, joy and happiness. It is the nothing of space which is the real gem making everything we possess in existence possible. Look after space and space will look after everything else.
My First Personal Experience of the Sprays
When Light Spirit Essences first developed the room sprays, I was about to go skiing to the Alps in France and my wife packed the room clear spray, unknown to me. We travelled across France and stayed in some pretty dingy Motels on the way, and the atmosphere in the rooms really got to me. When we arrived in the Alps I was surprised how claustrophobic our ski apartment was, it felt pretty awful and we had booked to stay for the month. Everyone was feeling like we had booked the wrong place and complaints were rife.
I had forgotten about the sprays, until my wife found the room clear spray in the case and wow! What a difference. I was quite surprised to see the change from heavy, tense and claustrophobic, to clear and spacious. It just changed the feel straight away. The room stayed the same size but it just felt so different. We used the spray morning and evening on the room and the corridor outside and didn't have another problem all holiday. Even my teenage daughter who tries her best to ignore our ravings noticed the difference. On the way home we used the spray in all the same motel rooms for the trip across France and were continually amazed at the difference. At home I always make a lot of effort to keep the energy clear and uplifted in our house so the difference is not always so noticeable. But when you start with an unloved, overused and grubby motel room and then you introduce the light energy from one of these sprays, the difference is quite amazing. I returned from the trip a total believer in this new use for these powerful essences.
Note: There is no preservative in the spray bottle once the essence is diluted into water. You should not take sprays internally and dispose of contents after a couple of days and clean the spray bottle. This a good excuse to spray plenty around the house.
