A therapists heals her unsettled new home by healing her grief

Lorna came to me to enhance her practice by fine tuning her psychic skills and healing abilities. Because my programs emphasize self-healing in the beginning, she was able to share with me her lingering sadness of relocating to a new home.
 
There was nothing from appearances around her new home that would reveal a spiritual problem. It was in a great neighborhood and everyone in the neighborhood got along well.  But it didn’t feel like home to Lorna. She couldn’t pinpoint it exactly. It just wasn’t “home”
 
As I began exploring more about the move, it became apparent that the move was motivated by neighbor hostility in her previous neighborhood.  She felt “ganged up” by neighbors due to the destruction of the canyon stemming from another neighbor’s construction project.
 
From a shamanic perspective, altering the environment without asking the nature spirits of that land can create serious disharmonies to the environment.  We aren’t familiar with this idea in the west, but other traditions honor changing landscapes by calculating astrological dates as well as performing divinations and rituals to ensure peace in the alterations.
 
What bothered Lorna more than the neighbor conflict was her relationship she cultivated with the wildlife from the canyon as well as a particular tree in her backyard. She made a silent vow that she would take care of them, but the forced move caused her to break her vow.  On top of this, there were very few people Lorna could share her grief with because, to many, this seemed inconsequential if not downright “crazy”.
 
As an empath and shamanic practitioner, I understood the depth of her pain.
 
My work with Lorna focused on healing her grief by Lorna reconnecting with the spirits of the former land and providing a heartfelt explanation and farewell as to why she had to leave.  From this work, Lorna learned that while she physically parted, spiritually she was still very much connected to the tree, plants, and animals in that location.
 
After a few sessions on her own, Lorna shared with me that she felt she had made closure with that neighborhood and felt that the living spirits of the neighborhood gave her permission to move forward in her own life.
 
We then turned the focus of the work to honor the spirts of her new home.
 
Lorna believed one of the issues with the new home was that a hoarder had previously lived in the home and wanted to clear the imprints of that energy.  However, to Lorna’s own surprise this part of the work didn’t feel needed as much after working on closure with her old home.  I encouraged her to talk with the house spirit and begin forming an alliance with her new space.
 
With Peace restored from leaving one home, Lorna was able to envision new potential to establish her connection with nature and harmony in her new home.
