Cleaning your Spirit

Last updated on Thursday, March 3, 2016

Only you can truly clean your spirit. Healers can help, but you are the only one who can truly make this work. 

This is a very common way of cleaning your spirit/getting rid of negativity from your sprirt .You may have heard of it before or can read this on other sites. 

Step 1

Take a bath to prepare yourself physically for the spiritual cleansing. I recommend using Dead Sea bath salts in the water, as salt is traditionally considered to be a cleansing element. As you relax in the hot water, meditate on the specific areas of your life that need cleansing. once you get out, picture all of that negtivety going down the drain.

Step 2

Write down the aspects of your life that you wish to cleanse. Focus on items that contribute to negativity and keep you stuck. Include everything that needs to be released to clear your spirit.

Step 3

Meditate on the list of negatives you just created. Envision the negativity in your life dissolving, turning to dust and blowing away on the wind. If you have religious beliefs, you can pray to your deity or higher power during this process, asking for help with your cleansing. Otherwise, simply repeat a mantra such as, "I release all that is negative in my life. I release its power over me. I reclaim the power of my spirit.” This phase is also good to say frist thing in the morning, and also at night.

Step 4

Burn the list. You can ignite it with a candle ( or grill which is where I often do this) but do it in a safe place where there is no danger of starting a fire. The best spot is over a sink or bathtub. Put a plate in the bottom of the sink or tub to catch any ashes, which you can scatter outside. 

Step 5

Chant "I am purified by the flame. My spirit is cleansed and freed." as the paper burns. As you do this, imagine everything negative rising up from your spirit and vaporizing.

Make sure to followup your spiritual cleansing with a reminder to help you stay on a positive track. Put a bowl or vase of water in a visible place such as a windowsill. When you feel negativity trying to return, imagine it being drawn to the water and trapped in it. Empty and refill the water vessel each week, and picture negativity going down the drain along with the liquid. (I often put this in my bedroom or/ and in my front window.)

Note: If you visit a psychic who says you have been cursed and offers to sell you a cleansing, beware. This is a common tactic to get money out of you by scaring you. It is very unlikely that you have been cursed, and you don't need to pay anyone to perform a cleansing on your behalf. You are the only one with the power to remove negativity from your life.
