I had a buyer bless her home and the superintendant who was building her home.  They dug holes on each corner of the home  and placed 1500.00 in each home and then burned the money.  Ironically the buyers home burned down 4 years later.

Yes. I clear mine frequently as well. Not as much of anything negative, but just to rebalance and refresh and attract good. There are many ways to clear a house and get stale, old or chaotic energy out. A favorite from a Feng Shui master I knew was to twist some grapefruit peel into a bowl of water and set it out for a couple of days. But I also knew a voodoo priestess in LA who would clear a house with rum and cigar! :)

Not that I'm aware of.  I've had a few have concerns over Fung Shui  10-15 years ago, but if anyone had a priest come over to exorcise demons "The Power of Christ Compells You" style, they never told me!

Yes I have.

And they were in appearance exactly like one would expect those to appear. Their own drummer, wisdom created through a life examined, able to live wholeheartedly. They were great listeners, with ears and spirit, and steadfast in following the light that illuminated their path.

Some would call them radical.
Some would call them extreme.
Some would call them Kooks.

I call them 'Friend."
