Performing an energy clearing of your space, the tools used for connecting, and your body should be a regular practice. Most of us are pulled in so many directions as we go through our day that we may not realize that we are carrying other’s emotions and/or pain in our own energetic and physical body. The regularity of energy clearing will vary for each individual.
As a sensitive, I have to practice strong boundaries with energy of others, spaces and spirit. Over the years, I have worked diligently on changing my environment at home and workspace to promote a more peaceful existence. Consistent practice of good spiritual hygiene by clearing and grounding is still a must. About once a month I also receive Reiki treatments to assist me in this practice.
I would love to help you find the most effective way to clear and ground! Through continual practice you will notice a shift to a more peaceful existence in your day to day life. If you can agree that your thoughts create your reality, you may understand that a peaceful heart and headspace can help you make some seriously awesome changes in your life as well.
What element resonates with you most? Air, Water, Fire or Earth? Each of these elements have ways to help you clear and ground. Some of us are more connected to one or two elements over the others. That is totally okay! The journey of finding what works for you is a fun one!
If you are mostly connected with the Air element some breath work techniques may work best for you. Inhale for a count of three and exhale for a count of five. Try some yoga poses, walking, dancing, martial arts, and/or sound healing.
If you are more connected to the Water element finding yourself near a large body of water like a lake, pond or ocean would be super cleansing and grounding. If you don’t live near a large body of water just taking a shower or an Epsom salt bath would do wonders. The use of essential oils topical, infused, or diffused is incredible help as well!
If you find that you are someone who resonates with the Fire element you might love to burn white sage, Palo Santos wood, or even a small candle. Burning these with the intention of clearing the space, tool or yourself to a neutral energy and feeling anything negative go with the smoke or the flame.
If you are drawn to the Earth element you find that you are really connected to working with crystals. A few personal favorites are hematite, tiger’s eye, black tourmaline and selenite! Standing outside barefoot may be excellent exercise for you as well. Standing, leaning or sitting beneath a tree is also a very powerful way to cleanse negative energy and to get grounded.
On days I’m finding myself discouraged, overwhelmed or just not in flow I find it so powerful to journal, pray, and to give others the encouragement I need myself. If I need to slow down my internal thoughts, I find a good book, snuggle my puppy, and even take a nap to reset!
I suggest while trying all these new ideas out that you take some notes about how you felt before you tried the technique and how you felt after. If you can grade it on a scale and find what works best for you and incorporate it in a daily routine, you are headed in the right direction!
