"Spiritual Consultant" Cleanses Houses of "Negative Energy" So They Can Be Sold.

Chapman, 52, is a petite woman who wears a half-dozen bracelets on each wrist with turquoise, lapis lazuli, tiger's-eye, citrine, tourmaline, moonstone and mother of pearl, all of which give her protection and enhance her intuitive ability, she said.

The Fremont resident said she uses a pendulum and candle to help cleanse homes of negative energy by going from room to room in a counter-clockwise direction. Afterward, she uses a combination of sea salt, sage and her hands to send "healing energy." She charges a $300 flat fee for her work.

Part of her job, as she sees it, also involves finding homes -- in this case for the spirits that inhabit some houses.

"We need to send them to a better place," she said. "And we give them escorts -- angels, seraphim, what you will -- to assist them on their journey."

"They're here." "Go into the light," right? They've already made that joke:

"Not everyone wants to talk about it. This is 'woo-woo' stuff," Chapman added.

But it is not so unusual. In 2004, centuries-old Indian remains were found at Hidden Oaks, a development of 21 $2.8 million homes in Lafayette, according to developer Branagh Development Inc.'s Web site. After the discovery, the developer took a series of steps, including relocating remains to a central area and honoring the dead, a state official said.

"There might have been a small offering of tobacco or a bigger ceremony," said Larry Myers, executive secretary for the California Native American Heritage Commission. "No one wants 'Poltergeist.'"

That's a real estate truism to rival "location, location, location."

Thanks to "anyperson," apparently hailing from the "someone" school of screennames.
