Simon Cowell says his home is much more ''peaceful'' since he called in a house healer.

The 'X Factor' USA judge decided to rid his Los Angeles mansion of negative energy after a friend recommended he try out the strange treatment and Simon says he's thrilled with the results.

In a series of tweets, the music mogul said: ''I have to say the house healer did a great job. I did it because if you believe something can make you feel happier then try it.

''I wasn't trying to get rid of bad things but I believe your home should be peaceful.

''And two people came round today and said the house felt different. So you never know.''

And it seems the house healer has also brought him good luck as a new TV show he's been working on has been picked up by a station.

He tweeted: ''And a new show we have been working on for a while got picked up this week. Spoooookeeeee. (sic)''

Simon - who also has homes in the UK and Spain - revealed his house healing plans earlier this week and said he was very excited about it.

He wrote on twitter: ''Hello. I had someone heal my house. Strange but great.

''The healer brings in good energy. Someone told me about it. It takes a couple of days.''
