All energy affects each and every one of us. Diana Burney does a wonderful job presenting prayers, meditations, and affirmations that we all can implement into our daily lives. She shares with us her vast experience in a very user friendly manner. As we journey through life, Diana’s chakra assessments, forgiveness exercises, and steps she provides for us, will help us to manifest change and bring about healing and harmony. By following her clearing process, each of us will be able to remove negative energies from our home, workplace, and personal space. The section on Angels and Archangels is very interesting and informative. Diana is clearly knowledgeable as well as a gifted healer and intuitive. Her book is truly a gift!
Through her book, Diana Burney has generously shared her experiences, training, energy, and wisdom. Ms. Burney presents to us the interconnectivity of sacred practices, positive and negative energy, the intuitive mind and divine guidance, and the harmony of life. In processing, assimilating, and living the cornucopia of this seasoned text, especially the prayers, mantras, affirmations, and invocations for an intuitive mind and divine guidance, I have had a profound positive experience. I highly recommend this book to all celebrating and experiencing your spiritual journey. We express our gratitude to Ms. Burney for sharing herself and her spiritual strengths with us.

This is a must have, must do book. If you are looking for step-by-step guidance in ways to eliminate less-than-optimum energy from your life, this is definitely a great resource. It offers both specific how-to’s for release, and clear insights into origins or patterns. This well-organized, easy-to-understand book shares what the author learned from decades of service in clearing energy for people, property and business. As a writer and publisher, I greatly appreciate the work that goes into so clearly conveying such important information in a way that each reader can readily put into practice. For me, the most important aspect is this work is self-empowering — allowing anyone to take action to better their lives. I can’t rave enough about that! Just read and do! If each of us makes even a small effort to clear our own life, just think of what we do collectively! — or how we can help others.

Diana Burney has produced a wonderful text for the novice and experienced spiritual practitioner. Her easy to read style takes the reader through some very complex ancient practices with simple straightforward instructions.
I particularly liked her scripts and guided imagery for special needs and lessons. In many texts of this kind, the reader is left to own resources or requires a guide and reader to engage in the practice. Not in this text. It is simple and even for the novice you can start and reflect and review your progress along the way without disrupting the spiritual benefit.
Diana is an experienced teacher, trainer and practitioner that is evident from her examples of client work and her own life experiences. I highly recommend this text and it should be a ‘must’ on one’s own personal library shelf…for use and review.

I can highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn how to “clear” yourself, home, business and life. If you understand and agree that the world is made up of energy, then learning how to clear that energy is essential. What surprised me (pleasantly) is that Ms. Burney gives the reader instructions on how to clear yourself, home, and business almost at the start of the book–no endless waiting to get to the heart of the matter here, as I’ve found in so many books before this one. She does explain clearly before this the reasons for clearing, of course, but doesn’t make you read through endless explanations before giving you the real how-to. I’ve known Diana Burney personally since the mid-90’s, when I took her then-course on clearing (which has developed more since that time and is certainly worth taking if you wish to continue learning this method in order to help others), and have found her to be caring, intelligent, and always helpful. Diana has spent many years and a lot of hard work developing this method in order to help others, and I congratulate her not only for getting this book published, but also for being a recent Finalist in the USA Best Book Awards in the categories of New Age and also Spirituality for “Spiritual Clearings”!

Ms. Burney has a remarkable talent for understanding the unknown, translating her talent into useable steps for clarity, comfort and ease. “Spiritual Clearings” by Diana Burney presents a step by step process that unbinds energies, that holds a home hostage. The end result is a home filled with joy and laughter. A perfect 5 stars book. Thank you, Ms. Burney.
P. Halbrook “truth seeker” (USA)
I have not been able to put this book down! It is such a well-written, step by step course on clearing negative energies from yourself and your home that even a novice can perform the clearings with confidence. There are recommended techniques in the book that tell exactly how to protect yourself and others by increasing your vibrations and maintaining a high vibratory rate through prayers, chants, and meditations. Highly recommended!
Amy O’Neill (Blissfield, MI)
With this book, Diana Burney has provided clear and easy to follow guidelines that even a novice like me can do. Not only that, but her explanations give a clear picture and also give the reader the confidence to know they are using the techniques appropriately. I highly recommend this book to all my friends, novices and experienced clearers alike!
R.S.M.  (Burke, Virginia) –
A blessing for the soul. Diana Burney guides you to a simple plan to enrich your life and create your own spiritual experiences. Don’t hesitate to begin creating your future, sustaining change and clearing away negative energy. Energize your life and begin the road to self-empowerment.
Harry Singh  (Trinidad)
Many books start with descriptive theory telling you why you should perform a specific object, however, this books starts on the line of prescriptive theory going straight to the ‘how’ which is a great relief for any seeker. There are great explanations and the structure of the book allows you to go straight to the issues or stages which you currently occupy after you read it and the flows logically and intuitively. The problem that I have with many books in the self help and spiritual field is that they leave you in the dust about what to actually do, this book literally caught me off guard in how fast it got to the point, and I give it 5 stars for that.

I am reading your book and it is awesome! You are so good at blending the practical with the spiritual and bringing it down to an earth level so we can all get it. I have recommended it to my friends and I hope they will use it. You possess an uncanny ability to connect the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual all for the purpose of healing and letting God work through you. Many of us feel that God abandons us through our lives. Spiritual Clearings is the conduit that helps us find God within ourselves. Reading and following Spiritual Clearings puts responsibility on ourselves as individuals to choose God and the Spiritual Path. We need to follow the path and the quietude within ourselves, there we will find our answers, in the quiet and peace, there is God. Many other spiritualists want us to believe they are the source we need to be cleared. Diana, thank you for showing all of us that the source of power, light and healing is within us, when we look for it. Thank you for helping us find our way to the light. Many blessings to all who read Spiritual Clearings.
Julie of CatsMcCoy (New Jersey, USA)
This book is incredibly rich with explanations and definitions of different types of negative energies, how they can arrive into my life and manifest themselves for potentially a long period of time. This information was insightful in itself yet Diana Burney goes on to articulate clear distinct step-by-step instructions on how to help clear these negative energies and emotions. What’s different about this book from other self help or spiritual books is the simplicity of presentation on a topic that fundamentally is complex. It presents a comprehensive approach – top down and bottom up – no fluff in this book. Definitely a book to purchase, read and like the title says “practice”. I anticipate I will be referring to the writings in this book for many years to come.
Beverly Wahl (Chicago, IL)
Spiritual Clearings by Diana Burney is an amazing book. It is clear, concise and easy to follow and perform on yourself. I have been working with Diana for many years and receiving clearings on our business and family as well as our home and she is amazing! This book has been needed for a very long time! The format is set up in such as a way that it is easy to follow even if you have little experience yourself. Diana has a wonderful way of writing that is very comfortable and positive. I read the whole book in a few hours! Thank you Diana for your wonderful healing work!
Angela L. Jones (Los Angeles, CA)
I stumbled upon this book in Barnes and Noble and then later purchased it on Amazon. I was instantly drawn to the book and haven’t been able to put it down. The book is an amazing gift of healing and protection. This in my opinion, is a must have book in our current time and can help those open to the process move on from past wounds and attachments that keep them from living from their own Divine State.
Stacy Solomon (MI)
I bought this book some time ago and while I normally do not write reviews, I felt compelled to do so for this guide. Ms. Burney’s writing style is superb and thoroughly enjoyable to read. I call the book more of a guide because the insights she shares are immediately applicable; she provides just the right balance of background knowledge and practical instruction to allow the reader to benefit from her wisdom and bring greater harmony into their lives. Overall, reading the book felt like having the opportunity to study one-on-one from a spiritual teacher. Ms. Burney shares not only her vast knowledge without falling into the pitfall of other writers of becoming obscure, but personalizes it by bringing in her experiences and insights she gained along her own path. The result is a book that reads more like a friendly chat with a trusted friend than elitist erudite litany. I would highly recommend the book to anyone interested in gaining awareness of the impact and influence of energies (their own and others) in their lives and seeking to resonate at a higher level.
Satchi (Boulder,Co)
I was given this book by a friend after a series of troubling events in my life and that of my family members. Since we were all in “crisis” mode I followed the instructions in the book to “clear” myself and husband and kids, all with their permission, immediately afterward, the sleepless, reported sleeping thru the night, “best sleep ever” the emotional difficulties and troubles began to smooth out and we found ourselves in a much more positive direction all the way around.
I immediately bought copies to send to three of my best friends. All found the book extremely helpful. I recommend this book for anybody that feels themselves inexplicitly stuck energetically, emotionally, financially, etc.
Simon Tan (Singapore)
Personally, I feel that the book “Spiritual Clearings” by Diana Burney makes for a good reference book (as it covers many varied but essential aspects of the topic) as well as a practical manual for those seriously looking to do their own clearings. It offers a concise and yet sufficiently detailed scientific explanation of this subject. In this manner, it takes the “superstitious” element away. Thus, providing a solid background for a novice to do the clearing exercises confidently. The clearing exercises are broken down into various sections and offers a step by step DIY approach. A person in an “emergency” can easily pick up the book and start doing his/her own clearings immediately. Of course, the efficacy depends on the faith and state of mind of the person doing it (amongst other factors). An aspect of the book that struck me immediately was the employment of prayers, mantras and affirmations from various spiritual traditions. At the same time, the reader is not led to chant the mantras/sacred sounds blindly as the meanings behind them are clearly explained. Everything is aboveboard and full of Spiritual Light. There are also sufficient meditation and visualization exercises to uplift the vibrations / spiritual frequency of the individual to help improve both his/her own inner and outer circumstances. One thing that I would look forward to is whether Diana would be kind enough to translate the clearing,meditation and visualization exercises into a guided practice Audio CD.
S. Gordon (Reno, Nevada)
I have to say that I have never seen such a comprehensive clearing book! I have sold all of my actual “paper” books and resolved myself to only purchasing for my Kindle app. NOT THIS ONE! I must have it in tangible format. I believe the greatest gift the author imparts in this beautiful book is the fact that we can all heal ourselves and various aspects of our individual world’s that have been disrupted by forces either known or unknown to us. This could be the best purchase you ever made for under $20. What’s your sanity worth?
S Mossman (Toronto, Canada)
I have read a number of books on spiritual development and this book tops my list as one of the best. I highly recommend it to the individual who is looking to advance spiritually and move forward on their quest towards growth, enlightenment and knowledge.
The adage holds true “When the Student is Ready the Teacher Will Appear” in this well researched informative book. Burney’s writing style is concise, descriptive and accessible. It almost felt like she was conversing with you in the comfort of your very own living room chair. Her recounts of her own personal spiritual growth humanize her and make her relatable.
The author is a well known popular psycho/spiritual healer who has performed thousands of clearings on individuals, homes, money lines and pets. Based on years of research and hands on experience, she teaches the reader through her recounting of real case histories of clients and what they needed to do to release karmic attachments, clear negative energy on themselves and in their environment.
The content of the book excited me because the author takes the reader on an incisive, pointed and fascinating journey of the emotional/physical/psycho spiritual health and healing that can occur when an individual starts paying close attention to signs, to trusting their intuition and to reprogramming their thinking so that a positive paradigm shift can and will occur. She discusses how we can change our lives when we feel “stuck” or “sinking”. Important subject topics essential for spiritual advancement are also discussed, such as; protection methods, blessings, angels, our emotions and how to release them, intuition, mantras and meditation.
I continue to implement many of her suggestions for spiritual growth in my own day to day life. Meditation has become an integral practice for me and I purchased Mala Beads for prayer/mantra recitation upon one of her many recommendations.
Thank you Diana Burney for assisting me on my ongoing spiritual journey, I am eternally grateful.

Spiritual Clearings by Diana Burney has blessed my life and given me hope and inspiration to continue my path of healing, clearing and self-discovery. It is extremely well-written, very comprehensive and covers all aspects of clearing yourself, home and business. This book will help you face each day with hope, courage and love.
E.Z.( New York)
This book was given to me by a woman I never met before and proven to help me a lot clearing my self and my space. Two years ago, I was going through an “investigation” period during my Saturn return phase. During that phase I started experiencing multiple phenomena and I decided to try the techniques given in this book. Since then I have developed a positive change, and my space feels more balanced. It is a safe self powering source with practical material, clear explanations how negative energies can be released and detached both from yourself and your environment, how the chakra system works and processes energy, and how to identify reasons for blockages. Diana Burney did a great job connecting a vast spectrum of information into a comprehensive self help book, and most important, it is a great reminder that:  “WE” have power to positively change ourselves and our environments.

I purchased a copy of your book yesterday, at Elysian Fields here in Sarasota, Florida. I purchased a small bundle of white sage at the same time. I actually went to the store for the sage only, something I have used for years for smudging. I looked around, and something drew me to your book. I am an empath, who has only recently learned techniques of shielding, and of the Violet Flame, from other sources prior to yesterday. Author Jenna Forrest helped me with a video available via youtube. I performed my first self-clearing ritual this morning (I had to go purchase a white pillar candle first), and smudged beforehand. I have the “bubble-of-protection commands” page bookmarked for daily maintenance, Diana, thank you so much for your wonderful book!

“Back in March, 2010, I purchased your book on Spiritual Clearings… and have been using it a great deal with my Ho’Oponopono practice. Thank you very much!!!”
Marilyn Kaye Muma-Reid (USA)
I had my home, property, pets, business, and cash lines cleared by a wonderful lady on Saturday. By Saturday afternoon, I had been offered 2 jobs, have an interview on Tuesday for an awesome position and my home seems so much more relaxed. (even in the midst of more trouble on the horizon) COINCIDENCE????? I THINK NOT!!!!
Maria Ochoa (Chicago)
In November in 2009 shortly after the release of your new book I decided to get my notebook out from the Class you taught here in Illinois on How To Do Clearings.   So the first one I did was the first one in about 2 years and of course it felt so good to be released of things and your book inspired me to keep the notebook out on my desk and I decided to do more clearings, more often.
Paula Snellings
I just wanted to thank you for sharing your knowledge and wisdom with me through your book “Spiritual Clearings”. I used the personal clearing steps and that experience has really touched my inner soul. I was wondering if you provide courses to learn more about clearings. I feel I have been called to learn more about this subject. I live in Virginia and see such a great need for these kinds of services. If you have any suggestions for my further learning I would appreciate it.
Trish Brennan
Your book and website have many beautiful suggestions and I am trying to create new spiritual habits.  My experience has been that I rise from the muck for a period of time, but I can’t seem to sustain it. In the meantime, thank you for the wealth of information you’ve provided.  I’ve found comfort in just knowing I can tell negative energy to leave and cease to exist.
Teri Ras
I just bought your book Spiritual Clearings yesterday….my friend bought hers a few weeks ago. She loves her book, I love mine as well. Its my Bible. Thank you for ‘Sharing’ your knowledge….
Random House
A blend of spiritual and practical material, Spiritual Clearings offers a comprehensive checklist of situations that may require a personal, home, property, or business clearing, from confronting illness or feeling “stuck” in life, to having trouble selling a home, to high employee turnover. In addition to describing energetic blockages, such as negative thought forms, author Diana Burney also discusses different categories of energy, its presence in the invisible world, and the unseen influences or beings that may be drawn to discordant energy. Through spiritual clearings, Burney proposes, we can release our own negativity as well as guide unseen negative forces toward the light. The book’s clearing rituals include prayers that invoke the assistance of higher beings such as archangels and Ascended Masters, incantations and chants from different spiritual traditions, the visualization of divine light and the violet flame, and the expression of gratitude. Additional meditation and visualization exercises, descriptions of divine beings, and a summary of the universal laws provide readers with a clear path to fulfilling their potential and creating a personal environment of confidence, creativity, love, and acceptance.
