Awhile ago I received a suggestion from my sister that those people who read my blog might be interested in learning about ways to cleanse negativity. I think that she may have suggested this for a number of reasons – one of them being that I cleanse myself and my home every day. As a Lightworker it is crucial to my daily work; however, my sister also knows that I have been asked by a number of people to help them cleanse themselves and their homes of unwanted and negative energies and entities. It has evolved into part of my service as a Lightworker.
There are numerous ways to cleanse and heal negative energies and there are many good books concerning this topic. Much is currently being written on this subject now and my only caution if you are considering buying one of them is that you choose one that comes from a place of love and doesn’t frighten you. Your intuition will guide you. I suggest that you choose a book that avoids sensationalizing the topic. Fear is so attractive to negative energies. It is like a magnet.
When I perform cleansing work for myself and others, I always work with the Angelic realm. It has been this way for my entire life; however, now I am more conscious of what I am doing. I also have more tools in my toolbox. Especially since studying with Dr. Doreen Virtue. Although there have been other teachers along the way who have helped me to ‘awaken’ my capabilities in this area – Dr. Virtue has a way of teaching that appeals to me. I hope to share with you what I have learned over the years from my teachers and from my own experiences.
Archangel Michael is one of my guardian angels and has been my entire life. Nevertheless, I always invoke him for protection for myself and my clients no matter what the nature of my work is on a particular day. I suggest that you do the same if you are in need of protection or cleansing for yourself and/or your home or space. Michael, as the leader of all the Archangels, is the astounding protector and will help you in all areas of protection, whether it be space-clearing or the release of fear-based energy. To say that Michael is a miracle-worker is to state the obvious. He is non-denominational and helps all of us who call upon him. Do not be surprised if you feel heat when he joins you or see flashes of electric-blue light or purplish sparkles.
While Archangel Michael, the angels and Ascended Masters can always help us to protect ourselves and clear negative energies, it is important to know that there are things that we can do to keep ourselves and our spaces clean. Just as we cleanse our bodies every day with soap, it is necessary to cleanse our energy.
Simple acts such as stopping every so often during our busy days to take a few deep cleansing breaths of fresh air can make a difference. For those of you living in the country or near the sea, then your ‘pure’ air free of pollution is an especial gift. Also, replacing our chemical cleansers with environmentally friendly cleansers such as those that are citrus based , can clean and uplift energy. Hanging chimes and crystals and using mirrors to deflect negativity all work. Amethyst works to protect against negative psychic energy and also increases your intuition and helps you to connect with your spirit guides. I have found, when surrounded by negative, dark, incarnate energies that carrying a black stone is particularly helpful – for me obsidian is a good protector. However, there are a myriad of other stones waiting for your discovery. Enjoy finding out what works best for you. I am only at the beginning of my journey with the mineral kingdom and will write more on that topic further down the road.
Smudging a place with sage or sweetgrass is a well-known way to purify. Remember the ENTIRE house needs to be smudged – every nook and cranny of the space. Frankincense and myrhh was suggested by one of my psychic mentors as being of great effect. Aromatherapists are especially helpful in suggesting what to use in our diffusers.
Uplifting music raises the energy of a space. Let intuition be your guide as to what is best for you. Many people have found Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony to be helpful. Chanting is a powerful way to raise vibrations. Cds of Buddhist monks chanting are often used in the protection of people within buildings and there are other sacred chants that are very helpful in the imparting of protective blessings.
Some people use salt to attract and absorb negative energies. They either wash down the walls with rock salt or they scatter the corners of each room in a house with salt and sweep it up after 24 hours have passed.
There are also so many powerful symbols that you can use from many ancient traditions to cleanse and purify and heal negative energy. As a Reiki Master I use Reiki symbols daily to cleanse my space and fill it with light before and after every client. I do this for the protection of my clients, family and friends and myself. Most people are able to ‘sense’ the cleansed energy immediately in one way or another. One client a week or so ago told me : “I could feel myself starting to detox the moment I entered, because the energy was of such high frequency.” Of course, flocks of angels were with us! Nevertheless, the instant that I draw the Reiki symbol, I feel the energy clearing – it is very palpable. You can feel this too. Work with symbols that resonate for you – such as a heart. Why not draw a HUGE heart over your body or in the air in your living-room. What happens?
Perhaps the best known way to protect and clear ourselves and others of negative energies and entities ( and yes, there are entities, I ‘see’ and help remove them) is to hold positive thoughts of appreciation and gratitude for what is good in our lives. These good thoughts lead to good feelings and help us to live from a place of love rather than fear. Love is our best protection and it is the most powerful force in the universe.
May the Light be with you, Monica
