Saying Goodbye to a Longtime Home

Are you Moving and Need Help Saying Goodbye?

Welcome to a space clearing that uses Feng Shui and the Intuitive Learning Circles for saying goodbye with respect and without attachment.

Saying Goodbye to a Longtime HomeIf you are in the process of moving, you may be surprised how hard saying goodbye to the place you called “home” is.

Home is so much more than a building. It includes the people, the community, the memories and intentions that have helped you generate your life up until this point. They are all important, whether you liked them or not!

You may say, “I don’t have time for this right now. I’ve got to get moved out. I’ll do it later.” Or, you might be involved in a longer transition and say, “My old house is going to become a rental or sold later. I don’t have to deal with that now.”

It’s also possible that you simply need to leave behind some old memories or ways of being so you can gather yourself more fully into the present.

Whatever your situation, going through a renegotiation and space clearing like this now, rather than later, will make your whole transition so much easier. Not only that, if you can be fully present and without attachments, whatever your future holds will have much less baggage and confusion.

A wise person once said, “when one door closes, another one opens.” The principles and customs of Feng Shui absolutely concur with that sentiment. The intention of this exercise is to facilitate that movement by saying goodbye with respect. That way, your mind is clear and you are truly free – open to embrace your future, whatever that involves!

Saying Goodbye ~

In this mind exercise, we are going to create a ceremony for saying goodbye and preparing for a prosperous new beginning by using our imaginations to paint the picture! All you need to do is relax and gaze softly at the Circles while you follow the directions that go along with each one. Bring along a piece of paper and something to write on or draw with.

Mind Body Integration - Self-care for loss

For best results, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of your body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

Feel free to move at anytime in any way to help you embody your experience!

Begin by bringing in your Soul and Higher Self to oversee the process of saying goodbye.

Old Soul


Breathe deeply and open up communication with your heart and Soul. Doing this will help you to know what’s truly important to you about making about this transition.


The Importance of Agreements

The mind works through agreements. Saying goodbye and setting up a new life goes so much easier when you release all agreements with  the parts of your life that are over and done with.

Mentally release your Soul contracts or agreements around this building and any past significant buildings in your life. Visualize actual contracts with the property, the land, the city and the community and burn all that is over and done with. Include the people and organizations that you’re saying goodbye to. These relationships may not be over, but surely they are going to change! Use this Circle to let go of those agreements.

“I let go of all Soul Agreements that are complete – over and done with.”

See old debts, vows and resentments burn up like old contracts in a beautiful violet flame.

If you have completed a project in this home, acknowledge it by letting that contract be released into the fire.

This would include raising children, building a career, being in relationship of any kind.

Saying goodbye is a conscious acknowledgment of what has been important to you.


Pull up any energetic stakes or ties that you may have planted on your turf.

Note: This process may happen incrementally, depending on your timeline for moving…

Begin with your current home and the land it’s on. What was your original intention when you moved into this place? It’s very helpful to uproot any completed or outdated intentions and send them to the Light, so that something different can happen more easily.

Once you do that, you may notice that you still have ties to other places you’ve lived, especially childhood homes. Now is a excellent time to pull up those stakes as well. If you can engage your imagination and see those stakes going to the Light, your move forward will be much easier!

Next, expand your awareness to other places that have been special to you in your environment – favorite or significant places like restaurants, parks, schools, even doctors offices. You will be able to tell when you’re ready to address a particular attachment because you will feel that pull – that painful tug on your heart.

You can uproot your attachment and feel even better about all these places. That’s because you can now connect with them through Love rather than suffering and pain.

Clear Your Baggage and Set Things Right.

With this new awareness, you can consciously let go of anything that would be better to not take with you.  Of course that means physical objects like furniture, clothes and accessories, however, a lot of baggage is energetic in nature.

Preparing to move is an excellent time to set things right emotionally and spiritually. You’d be surprised how moving can bring up other issues or problems that aren’t really yours and need to be returned. When that happens, it’s best to imagine those things going to the Light. If you think of something that you actually physically need to return to someone, make a note of it and plan to return it.

“I return anything that belongs to someone else. All debts and confusions are set right.”


You can do the same with people. Maybe there are a few people that still cling to you for reasons of their own. It could be neediness, anger,  jealousy, co-dependence or any kind of pain and suffering. It’s time to firmly send them back to wherever they came from, so that the both of you are free to move on.


Gather Up Your Power

As part of setting things right, you need to reciprocate. For example, there could be some people that you are clinging to as well! You will want to reclaim your authority by recalling all parts and functions that belong with you. You don’t want to leave things behind that other people will have to deal with. Use this affirmation to help you:

“I call back all energetic parts of myself so that I can move forward in wholeness.”

Include your personal power, special abilities, talents and gifts. If you can take back any harmful intentions, grudges or resentments, you’ll be doing everyone a favor – especially you!


Now It’s Time to Call Back Your Essence.

This is like a Soul Retrieval. Use this chart to call back all parts of your Essence that may have gotten lost or fragmented during your life in this home (or anywhere else, for that matter).

“I reclaim my Essence with appreciation and gratitude.”

Energy Medicine for the New Paradigm

Note: It’s worth it to recall those special places you released your agreements with. A fragmented part of yourself could very likely be wandering around in those places. Call them back so that you can live in wholeness!


Get Grounded and Centered in your Solar Plexus Chakra.

Your Essential Self functions best when it’s unified and positioned in your Solar Plexus Chakra. Envision your Self standing upright and facing forward to enhance your gut instinct.

Clear Destructive Emotional or Mental Patterns.

Dissolve any harmful mental or emotional patterns with this symbol. See those attachments like a large cloud bank that you can consciously send to the Light or see them dissolve into pure sunlight – the darkness all gone.

Let the Sun safely transmute, transform and complete this stage of your journey.

Please note: It’s very helpful to use both of the symbol above and below to clear the entire space while you’re smudging with your favorite cleansing plants, woods or resins.

If there’s been any illness, loss or disease involved with your environment, use this symbol to send that energy to the Light as well.

When One Door Closes, Another One Opens.

Before moving on, bring completion to the process of saying goodbye. Let this Circle help you close those old doors and pathways so that your new path can become clear.

“All old doors, holes or pathways are sealed and healed.

I follow the direction of healthy protection.” 


Express Gratitude.

Finally! Thank all the people, places and experiences that have been a part of your life. They have helped you create who you are today.

This is a good time to find and follow through on a simple action that will mark the end of Saying Goodbye.
