Land Spirit Reading
Indigenous people and ancestors from the plains of Africa to the Americas… from the depths of the rainforests to primeval European forests… from the shores of tropical islands to the coldest regions on Earth… have always made efforts to live in harmony with the spirits of the land. Urban life doesn’t stop that union — most people are just tuned out to these energies. I am not.
If you’ve read my article, How to Honor Land Spirits — and why you’d want to, you already know that I believe in respecting the ancient land energies that exist side-by-side with us.
I’m talking about the nature spirits. Those that reside in the trees, bushes, gardens, the rocks, the water, and even the earth itself surrounding our homes.
Sometimes there are spirits of the indigenous people who lived there. I find that they are often protective energies, who have chosen to be spiritual caretakers of the land.
And just in case you’re wondering, you don’t have to live on a 10 acre lot to encounter land spirits. I live in an apartment, and yes, there are land spirits here as well. They surround the exterior of my building.
Since I began honoring them, I find that not only is my space extremely serene… I have also been warned of potential dangers. (Which I’ve written about in How My Land Spirit Protected Me — a personal story from an apartment dweller.)
A Land Spirit Reading will help you understand who these energies are
When I do a land reading, I tune in to space surrounding and underneath your dwelling to discover who the land spirits are and what they’re like. Not every land spirit on a piece of property wants to talk, but when they do, I often encounter them in trees, bushes, rocks, gardens, or even a particular spot on the land. I sometimes encounter fairies. And I often come across the deceased who haven’t moved on.
I will tell you if there are any imbalances, problem areas, or even portals on the land. A lot of people will instantly equate ‘problem areas’ with evil spirits, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes the way the energy comes from the earth makes people uncomfortable. Sometimes your property has a destructive history. Sometimes you have an unruly earth bound spirit. Rarely is it an evil spirit as we see in scary movies.
Finally, I tell the spirits of the land that you are aware of their presence and I ask if there’s anything that you can do to live in greater harmony with them. If any offerings are required (mines like dried roses or a little Florida water), I will let you know.
In fact, all of the information I discover is reported back to you.
Who should get a land reading?
If you’re a current land owner — or even a renter — who feels uncomfortable (for no apparent reason) on your property… get a land reading to find out why. A feeling of discomfort can sometimes mean the spirit(s) of those who died on the property haven’t moved on. It may not even be a ‘scary’ spirit, but just feeling like you’re not alone can be unnerving.
As I mentioned before, you could be experiencing the residual energy of tragedy that happened there. For instance, did you know that the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear reactor meltdown happened on the land where decades earlier Nazi’s burned down a synagogue filled with Jews? Sometimes the land holds onto pain and it will manifest as disaster after disaster in that one place.
When I first started learning about the energy of land 20+ years ago, my mentor and I walked a busy, crunchy-ish neighborhood on the outskirts of Washington D.C. There was a restaurant on this one street that had changed hands 5-6 times over the course of three years. (And no, it wasn’t haunted.) Despite other restaurants in the area doing well, the people who rented this particular building were always met with some kind of financial ruin. A land reading would have helped the owner discover what was going on. (It was a curse on land.)
When you move onto a property and your life starts going to hell in a hand basket, it could be indicative of something going on with the land. Sometimes the things you cannot see with physical eyes will either have you breaking a contract, or in crying therapy if you don’t take care of business! I know because I’ve lived through these things, and that’s why I am where I am today.
If you’re looking to buy a specific piece of land, get a land reading to understand what the atmosphere is like BEFORE you spend your money. I had a couple come to me a few years ago who were in love with a house on an acre of land. They were already renting the house and had been given the opportunity to buy it.
I came in like a cold water shower on a winter morning and warned them not to do it. (The wife told me she didn’t want to hear it.) The primary land spirit told me that the house would be a money pit. (They actually showed me an image of the movie The Money Pit.) As much as I hated to be the bearer of bad news, I simply translated what the land spirits told me.
“I absolutely, positively would not do it,” was the last thing I said to them.
“Well thank you for your services, but the home inspector gave the house a clean bill of health. I don’t know what to make of your prediction,” was the message the wife sent me back.
Unknown to me, they were still planning on buying the house — that is until two weeks after the land reading, one of the main pipes burst underneath the basement. (Cough, cough… hellooooo money pit.) That couple ended up moving out a month later and purchased a much bigger, nicer house for the same price.
Do you have a piece of property on the market that just won’t sell no matter what you do? You can keep banging your head against the wall, doing one price reduction backflip after another — but if the land spirits ain’t happy, you’ll sit there empty handed. A land spirit reading can help you understand the who, what, where, when and why of the situation so that you can fix things and sell the property. Think of it as a spiritual renovation.
How does it work?
This reading is done remotely — (unless you’re within a 10 mile radius of North Miami Beach, Florida).
After you order the reading, I’ll need at least six pictures of the land surrounding your home or apartment building. You can email these to (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Three days after you send me the pictures, I will email you a complete report of my findings. And yes, you are invited to ask questions along the way.
Does this mean you’ll also cleanse the land or do a blessing?
No, this is just the reading. In the reading, I will tell you what to do to make peace with the land spirits, if that’s what’s needed. I will often suggest things like Florida water, palo santo, gridding the land with different crystals or herbs, and so on.
If you have heavier energies on the land, or if you’re just flat out scared to deal with this stuff, I can most definitely do a cleansing and a blessing. The only thing I ask you to do is that you do a good spring cleaning to the space before I begin.
If you’re in the Miami area, I prefer to cleanse and bless in person. If you’re not in the Miami area, I also do remote land, home and office cleansings.
