Janet and I were called to a farmhouse in Chickamauga, a small town tucked into Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, known for the Battle of Chickamauga, the second most deadly of all Civil War battles. According to our clients, their house was built in 1875, and replaced the original home, which was used as a field hospital during the battle. Prior to writing this, I did a little research and learned that many families in the area had offered their houses to care for the injured, as over 3,900 soldiers died and 25,000 were wounded during the bloody battle.
We were greeted by our clients at the farm gate and directed up a gravel driveway to a quant white house. There was a large field in the back of the house with a cooling breeze coming off of it. This was truly beautiful land.
We made our way inside and began our preliminary walk through. Everything felt great until we reached a room on the top floor, which had a certain heaviness to it that made us both uneasy. The energy was particularly intense near one of the windows, which by no coincidence, was covered in dead ladybugs. I closed my eyes to see what kind of a hit I would get about this area. I saw energy running up and down in a shaft from the land below. I questioned about clearing it, but received the answer that it was a permanent thing. This puzzled me. Could we not clear this negative energy?
Janet came over and connected with it. She confirmed that it was a portal for sure, but the corpses of soldiers, which been stacked on the ground over the portal, had tainted it. Now it made sense to me. It was a natural and permanent Earth portal turned negative by humans. The ladybugs were probably attracted to the portal only to be overcome by the heavy energy.
We also discovered that a couple of the rooms at the front of the house, on both levels, had some thick energy. Following a hunch of Janet’s, we made our way outside, and there it was, a lot of heaviness on the porch and front yard. This was the same energy we were feeling in the front rooms. This happens often, the energy of the land breathes up through the floors of a house undeterred.
It was time to check in with this energy to see what was going on, so we sat together on the porch steps and meditated. This is basically what tuning into energy is. It’s meditating with the openness to receive helpful information. This time the information came from the land. The land has its own intelligence and acts as a representative of Earth herself.
The following is a summation of the message I received:
The humans (soldiers) who were injured and dying here tried to hold onto their mangled and bloodied bodies. There was very little letting go and allowing the shift to spirit. The energy was extremely intense as the men endured great pain while fighting to stay in their bodies. This emotional energy covered the land. It was not the blood and bodies that left the impression, it was the emotions associated with trying to stay alive and trying to keep limbs, the dread of death, or the begging for it to release them from the pain.
The land said, “I can heal myself. This is what I do. I take the dead of the earth, trees, leaves, animals and humans, and bring them back to the land, back to my bosom. This is how I cleanse. I have done this forever. Let the wind rush off the field and clear the land. You humans have built a house here and it blocks the cleansing flow of the wind from the back field. Open the doors and windows and let the wind through. Let me clear the area. Let me do my thing. Tell the house to cooperate. This will help tremendously.”
Janet received the same message about letting the land do its thing. We talked about the situation for a bit and then went to work. We ushered in angels to begin the clearing process, which the land had promised to continue long after we left.
Immediately, we felt a shift in energy, which feels similar to a change in humidity, like going from a heavy humid day to a dry crisp day in moments. Minutes later, Janet said, “Do you see them? Do you see the people coming out of the house onto the porch?” I hadn’t yet, so I tuned in with my mind’s eye. Yep. There were people walking out all right!
One of them, a small girl with blonde hair wearing a white dress, walked up behind me and placed her hand on my shoulder. When I see random things like this I know it’s a genuine hit. I would not have imagined there would be the earth-bound spirit (aka a ghost) of a small girl stuck in this horrendous Civil War battle. Still looking for confirmation though, I asked Janet if she saw the girl. “Yes”, she said. “What does she look like?” I asked. “She has light hair and a white dress on.” You can’t make this shit up.
We eventually crossed over all of the spirits and allowed the land to begin clearing itself. We also went over to the side of the house to clear the heavy energy of the portal, which was attracting and killing the ladybugs in the room upstairs. We walked back inside to check the energy of the house and it felt peaceful and at one with the land.
Afterwards, we spoke to our clients and conveyed the land’s message to them. We recommended that they actually ask the house to participate in allowing the energy of the land to move through it, and that they open the windows as often as possible to allow the cleansing breeze from the back field to blow through the house.
Our clients contacted us recently to say that the ladybugs have disappeared. Janet and I are so grateful that the couple is able to enjoy their beautiful green piece of American history.
