5 Ways To Cleanse your Energy
Updated: Feb 7
In this blog post, I explain the Energy system briefly and give you 5 ways to cleanse your own energy field.
Do you already know about your Energy system? The invisible system that lies behind all of your other body systems, behind all of your human organs, behind all of your physical being? You may know this system as "The Chakras", and you may know your energetic field as "Your Aura".
Your energy system lies at the core of your being.
This system goes deep.
It is through this system that you are capable of receiving your life force energy.
It is through this system that you are capable of achieving what you once thought impossible.
From your emotional health, to your mental, physical, and spiritual health, your energy system impacts it all.
Your energy system consists of 7 energy centers, that are called chakras. I'll keep it simple, those energy centers are like little wheels that always have to keep turning in order for them to be healthy.
Chakras are what give you the right To have, to feel, to act, to love, to express, to perceive, and to know. They all have a color, a meaning, a location in the body, a main focus point, and when blocked (when the energies are not flowing freely) they all relate to different malfunctions in the body.
Many traditions have recognized the subtle energy centers in the human body called chakras. By bringing them in alignment, and cleansing your energy field you are aiming for a happier, healthier, and more at peace you.
Caring for your energy truly is healing for your Mind, Body, and Spirit.
I will create a separate blog post on the Chakras, explaining them in more depth, but for now I'll stick to telling you about my 5 Go To Ways On How To Cleanse Your Energy.
Before you get into it, you need to ALWAYS set your intentions, and when you are done, say thank you. That goes for anything you do for yourself actually.
Always set good intentions! and always give thanks!!! The universe will respond to that!
5 Ways To Cleanse Your Energy
1 DEEP BREATHING (GROUNDING)
Take some time to breathe!
Take as long as you need for yourself whether that's 20 minutes, or 5 minutes, or even only 2 minutes, that's perfect!
Sit down with yourself, either in a sacred space with a candle lit, bundled up on your favorite chair, chilling at the beach, or in your car on your way to work.
Wherever you are, you can do this!
Close your eyes, and breathe. Breathe deeply in through your nose, and out (kind of excessively) through your mouth. Try it! it feels nice.
Now, do this at least 3 times, or as many times as you need. By doing this, you are grounding yourself and your energy so you can feel safe and secure enough to let go.
When you exhale, let out allllll that needs to be let out !!
Breath after breath, continue to cleanse any negative, heavy, low vibe energies that you may be carrying.
2 WRITE DOWN WHAT IS WHEIGHING YOU DOWN
Do you ever write stuff down?
What about the stuff that is bothering you or weighing you down emotionally? What about all the negative, guilty, and shameful stuff that is making you upset, angry, or sad?
Well, if you haven't already I invite you to try it.
It might feel weird at first, and you may not know what to write or how to start, that's ok! Just be open to what's up.
For the purpose of this writing, I prefer pen to paper for sure! There is something powerful about letting your pen flow and write what needs to come through.
Honestly, it doesn't really matter where you write, as long as you are expressing yourself and putting the thoughts that are in your head onto a sheet of paper, or notes in your phone.
You are writing for yourself, with yourself.
This will allow you to release the negative vibes and cleanse your energy.
Write down everything that needs to be released and let it go.
3 BURN SOME SAGE - PALO SANTO
Plants in general are purifying and cleansing to our space and our being, but here I'm talking about burning certain parts of these plants as a tool to help cleanse your energy.
You may know White Sage to being used by Native American people in traditional incense rituals. Many human beings enjoy and appreciate the cleansing properties that it brings to oneself and its space.
Palo Santo is a sacred tree native to South America, also known to be used in traditional healing and spiritual ceremonies for centuries.
Regardless of which one I use, this is how I practice my ritual.
First, as with all, I set my intentions on cleansing my energetic field. I ask all negative energies to kindly leave my field, I express gratitude for the burning sage that is assisting in cleansing my energy while I wave around my sage or Palo Santo. I love to always flow in the infinity figure 8 to help the flow of energy.
There are many ways that you can burn these plants with the intentions of clearing up unwanted negative energies. I would say do what feels right to you. Let yourself flow with the intention of cleansing your aura.
Trust, breathe, burn, flow, cleanse !
4 TAKE A SHOWER
Yep, that's right! Just a regular shower like you do every day, or every other day. All you have to do is be a little more mindful, A little more present with yourself, and A little more intentional.
Have you ever thought of taking a shower as the same as cleansing your aura?
Once I tell you, you won't be able to un see it. Or, at least that's how it was for me. Since the first time I heard about this concept, I automatically feel my aura cleansing when I am in the shower.
It's actually very simple.
If you are someone that rushes in and out of the shower you may find this a little more challenging, but over all it is quite simple and I believe that you can do it.
Get in the shower as you normally would, do what you need to do but take time to breathe, and be present with yourself. Feel the water falling on your head, and washing down your body. Imagine, visualize this to be also true for the energy that flows through you.
Do this for how long you need.
Appreciate and give thanks to the water for helping you cleanse your energy.
5 MOVE YOUR BODY
Keep it simple!
What's the first thing that comes to your mind?
Dancing, Walking, Running, Jumping, Flowing, Stretching, Kicking, Punching, Lifting, whatever it is, do it!
Moving your body is essential for your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. While you move your body in any way that feels good to you, you are cleansing your energy, clearing up old stagnant energies, and making room for new, positive happy energies to flow into your field, and into your life.
Bottom line on my 5 ways to cleanse your energy,
Do it with intention! Do it with love! Do it for you!
