Why you should not do Space Clearing if you are pregnant
Jan 25, 2021

Reading time 2 min.

I’m always glad when someone checks with me if it’s OK to do space clearing while pregnant because it definitely is not OK. And it’s not OK while breastfeeding either.

Clutter clear is one of the preparatory steps for space clearing and it’s fine to do that while pregnant or breastfeeding. But it’s not OK to do the whole 21-step space clearing ceremony. This is clearly explained in my book, Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui, but somehow some people miss this information when they read it, or try to do space clearing without reading the book at all.

Babies are very etherically vulnerable

If human babies were hatched from eggs like chickens are it might be a different matter because the eggshell provides a degree of etheric protection. But a baby in a womb is connected directly to the mother and is very energetically open and vulnerable. Everything that happens to the mother washes through it, and if the mother conducts a space clearing ceremony then she will be exposing the baby to energies that it is not equipped to handle.

Some of the space clearers I have trained have taken time out from professional work to have a baby and they report that the same is also true during breastfeeding. Energetic residues from the stagnant energies that are cleared during a space clearing ceremony pass into the mother’s system and make her breast milk taste so bitter that most babies will refuse it for a few days until her body has processed it out. This can be very distressing for both mother and baby. So space clearing is also not recommended during breastfeeding.

Space clearing before a birth

Many pregnant women instinctively feel the urge to clean, tidy and prepare the “nest” as the time of the birth approaches. My own mother told me that her waters broke when hanging new curtains, and I’ve heard many similar stories. Preparing for the birth of a baby is certainly one of the most important times to do space clearing so that the space is as energetically clear as possible. Particular attention needs to be given to the baby’s bedroom and other rooms in the home where it will be spending the most time.

So who can do the ceremony if the pregnant mother can’t? One option is for their partner to do it, if they have read my book and feel confident to do so. Or a professional space clearer can be called in – someone who has taken my training and maintained their skills. But beware of “cowboy” space clearers, no matter how well-meaning, who offer their services without any professional training at all. They can seriously mess up the energies in your home.

It’s fine for a pregnant woman to be present during the setting-up stage of the space clearing ceremony (hand sensing, creating the space clearing altar and activating the flower offerings in all the main rooms of the home) and during the harmony ball process at the end. But she will need to step out of the building during the clapping and belling circuits, which is when the heavy-duty clearing work is done.

Space clearing after a birth

With a home birth, it’s best to have a space clearing done both before and after the birth because birth energies can be very chaotic. It’s usually only necessary to space clear the room that was used for the birth, not the whole home.

So what can pregnant mothers do themselves? Clutter clearing! Pregnancy is a wonderful time to cast out the old to make room for the new, and will really help to satisfy that nesting instinct.
