In 1990 my studies took another leap forward when I discovered Bali, a tiny island in the Indonesian archipelago. This vibrant, spiritual culture is one of the best examples of a people living in perfect harmony with their natural surroundings and they have the most highly developed purification ceremonies I have encountered anywhere on earth. I fell totally in love with the place, spent most of the next three years there, and have continued to live there for half of each year ever since.
I discovered a natural aptitude for the Indonesian language and then started learning Balinese, a wonderfully descriptive and incredibly complex language with three levels and umpteen dialects, known to only a handful of westerners. Bring able to speak this language started to really open doors for me, especially with the older priests and shamans who speak hardly a word of Indonesian, having left school long before the study of this language was introduced. There will be a lot more about Bali and the results of my work with these priests and shamans as this book unfolds.
Starting to teach
Note about the name 'Space Clearing'
Since the publication of my book this has been adopted as a generic name for all kinds of energy clearing techniques. Please note that all references to Space Clearing on this website refer specifically to the ceremony I describe in my own book, which is the only one I can guarantee the effectiveness of.
For a long time I resisted teaching Space Clearing to anyone except a few close friends because I didn't want to get labelled 'weird'. Then I started teaching a metaphysical workshop called 'Create the Life You Really Want' and I noticed something very interesting: People got good results from the workshop, but the
people who got really mega results were personal friends who I had taught how to clear energies in their own homes.
At first I just taught half hour or one hour seminars on Space Clearing. Each time I was swamped by people telling me how exciting the information was, wanting to know more and asking me to do private consultations in their homes. I was amazed and surprised and delighted all at once.
I now teach Feng Shui, Space Clearing and Clutter Clearing workshops all over the world, and my work is constantly developing and expanding to encompass a whole range of other topics.
The name 'Feng Shui' originates in China but over the years I have discovered that every culture in the world has a form of Feng Shui and also the branch of Feng Shui concerned with clearing and consecrating spaces that I call Space Clearing.
Some of the information I have come across in books and different cultures has been conflicting, but because I work from the energy standpoint all the time, it has been very easy for me to discern which bits work and which bits don't. Some techniques are universally effective and others are based only in local superstition. My life has been an exciting journey of discovery, and a process of researching, checking and refining my findings.
Now, seven years on from when I first published my book, I can also report that the ceremony I created has proved to be highly effective for (and acceptable to) people of all cultures and religions backgrounds. In other words, it is lodged at a high enough level to be completely non-denominational. I have received tens of thousands of emails from all over the world confirming this is so.
When I do a consultation, the first thing I do is go around the inside perimeter of the space and take an energy reading on many different levels. Then it's a matter of working with the person or people who live or work there at whatever depth they want me to.
I remember one woman was so pleased to discover my abilities that the 1-hour consultation she had originally booked me for developed into a seven-hour in-depth reading of virtually every room of her four-storey mansion. She was a very caring mother who had had a string of difficult problems with her adult children. When she discovered my ability to fine-tune and read the energy of her home, she asked me to go into each room in the house and tell me exactly what was stored in the walls, furniture and ornaments. I was able to tell her about each of her children, about their characters, their inner struggles, their higher aspirations, and what help each of them would most benefit from.
People often ask me if I think my skills are unique. I think I have a natural etheric 'know-how' but the rest is down to years and years of perfecting my abilities. Since I began teaching the information contained in this book in my workshops, many people have discovered that they too can learn to read energies and can space clear their homes and work places.
I have formulated ways of teaching this material so that without any previous training, people can go and begin to use it in their own lives immediately. Letters and phone calls arrive daily telling me of exciting things that have happened as a result of doing this. Now I have also put the material into written form so that many more people can access and use it.
