Feng Shui

Space clearing has gotten a lot of news latest as a trend in today's living. Negative influence such as geopathic stress, mechanical devices (such as cell towers, computers), dimensional influences (negative thought forms), stellar influences, and traumatic events like crime or war leave a negative energy imprint on the environment. By removing these negative energies, one's home becomes a healthy place to live.

If you have donations for the sale, please bring them by Friday noon and we'll also include in the sale.
