How to Cleanse Your Energy

You know that feeling when things get a little too messy and a little too cluttered in your life? Whether it's your room, your office, your home, your car, your pets, yourself…we all know that feeling when we've had enough and it's time to clean. We literally throw our hands up and get out our tools such as vacuums, mops, dust brushes, and cleaning products. Sometimes we put on our music and we get to work. The reason we get that feeling is because our energy field is telling us so. It's literally screaming, please clean me, I’m dusty, overwhelmed and I’ve had enough.


We don't talk about it a lot, but our physical environment is actually an extension of our energetic fields. We know when our energy fields are in need of cleaning because we start to feel things such as stagnant, unmotivated, resentful, down, stuck in the same loops, you get the idea and I'm sure you could keep adding to this list. My Mom once taught me "move a muscle, change of thought". This resonated so much. When I would find myself ruminating on things and feeling stuck, I'd often find that the things outside of me were stuck too. My room needed to be cleaned or my car. After I did a little cleaning, I'd feel so much better and have a much clearer perspective on my life. When we physically pair an action step with a thought, we begin to shift the energy around us. Louise Hay says “a feeling is a thought in action and a thought can be changed.” I agree and like to incorporate that intention when cleaning my energy field. If we change our thought in the moment and pair it with a physical action step, magic can happen.


As we all recently learned, our biomagnetic field, which is our energy field, goes out about 6 to 8 feet around our body. This is our comfort zone. We can all feel and notice when someone's in our comfort zone. This energetic field also will retain energy from other people, situations and experiences that we've had. Just like our physical space, it's important to be mindful of our energetic one. Take inventory on what is still present in your field mentally, physically, and emotionally, and see if you still want it there.


Here are a few tools to help you cleanse your energy field:


  1. Sage - Sage is antiviral, antibacterial and antimicrobial. When burned, it cleanses and purifies the air around us, as well as, helps to cut energy cords that are no longer serving us. Simply light some sage, crack a window, take a twirl in it and say thank you angels for releasing what is no longer serving me at this time. Thank you for bringing me back into Harmony and balance with myself and that around me. I leave it by my front door and take a twirl when I get home. I also sage my house and clear the energy every time I vacuum. Lighting a white candle after helps to keep the energy pure. Can’t hurt, right?

  2. Water - Water is just magic. It is the only element that can be a solid, gas, and a liquid. We use it to bathe ourselves and can use it to cleanse our energy. When taking a shower or a bath simply imagine the water removing all energetic cords that are no longer serving you, visualize them being washed down the drain. I like to thank the water for cleansing, purifying, and helping me feel new again. Soaking your feet in saltwater is incredibly neutralizing as well. Water Gazing or meditating near water and asking it to take away what is no longer serving, can be just as powerful.

  3. Exercise - Exercising literally helps us to purge and release unwanted toxins and energies that are no longer serving us from within. There are so many healthy ways to express and emote such as dancing, running, lifting, swimming, taking walks, connecting with nature, and many more. When we can create a little bit of a fire within ourselves, it helps us to burn, purify and cleanse from within. Sometimes when I can't stand the energy anymore, I just put on a song and dance it out.

  4. Selenite Wand - The Selenite Wand is one of my favorite tools to use for cleansing. Selenite is a crystal of the angels and one of the only ones that is self-cleansing. When you wave the wand around your energy field and ask it to cut cords, you truly feel the energy shift, move and change. I slowly wave the wand about a foot in front of me and a foot behind me and ask my guides to cut all cords that no longer serve me, return them where they belong and bring me back to peace. Most of the time I literally feel tingles.

I hope this offers you a little bit of support on your soul's beautiful journey. Hang in there. Remember April showers bring May flowers and most of the time, things feel cleaner and calmer after the storm.



 

Looking UP in Awe and Wonder

Cosmic Showers ~ A Pileup in Pisces


by Ursula Duffy

The energy has been building for a while, but it wasn't until Saturday, 4/9 in particular, that I started noticing the extreme influences. The clouds, the weather, my dreams, reflections, Spring springing. Everything has felt liminal and imaginary and like the bardo. Existence has felt like walking a tight rope between realities. I went to the beach on Saturday, 4/9 and the experience was ethereal. There was a rain shower off the coast, the kind that you can see from the shore. The clouds were amorphous, gray, white, pink, blue and all shades in between, ever flowing and changing. It was sunny and shady and cold and warm and raining. The sky's reflection was crystal clear in the mirror shimmer of retreating waves, strewn with flocks of sandpipers. At one point, the roar of the ocean startled me, sounding like a fighter jet, and for the first time in a very long time, I watched rain drops falling on the wet shoreline sand. Totally surreal.


I liken the vibe of late, the current Cosmic Showers if you will, to movies like Vanilla Sky, Waking Life, What Dreams May Come and The Shape of Water. Stories that exist in a fantastical version of reality, in a dream or on the verge of many dimensions that all blend into one. Like existing in a Monet painting, or "...to sleep - perchance to dream...", or entirely unsure if we're dreaming this experience, or if we're in someone else's dream. This is the lived experience of the Jupiter/Neptune energy, the exact convergence clicked into exactness on April 12th at 9:22 am (EDT). This is the extreme essence, expression and once in our lifetimes energy of these two planets meeting up in Pisces (23 degrees), which last happened in March of 1856. You may have been feeling extra sensitive, extra intuitive, great sadness or volatile emotions, like escaping, exhausted, dazed and confused, super inspired creatively or having vivid, lucid dreams. It can be some or one extreme, or all of the above. Listen to your body. "Open your eyes."


We also had a Libra Full Moon on Saturday, 4/16, which was at the helm of Venus in Pisces; her happy place, but also where the rose-colored glasses are worn as an overdone accessory. Relationships were in the spotlight and the confusing and emotional energies may have a tuned up influence. This Full Moon also opened up the energy gateway for the first Eclipse Season of 2022 (4/16 - 5/20). Remember, this is the first and only time in our lives we're experiencing this particular vibe in the Cosmos, collectively and individually. We currently have four planets and one Goddess asteroid in the zodiac sign of Pisces (Jupiter, Neptune, Venus, Mars and Juno). The waning Moon just exited the sign today, meeting up with each one along the way. Pisces allows us to open up to our own transcendence and connection to Source, but it can feel confusing. It may be helpful to know the Pisces part of your chart, where this is happening, and how that relates to the rest of your Soul's fingerprint. It may hold some keys and information in navigating the tidal waves. We're also now on the precipice of the first eclipse, which will be a New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Taurus on Saturday, April 30th. Stay tuned to our YouTube channel for the next Taurus Rising episode for more details and information about this Eclipse Season. We'll be posting a new episode soon!


I've recently added two of my Astrology reading services, one is brand new, to the Sea Goddess website. If you want to learn more about how these energies are affecting you, visit my page and book with me here.


From my Cosmic Shower to yours,

Reap a Harvest of Happiness


by Kendra Hammell, Higher Self Healing, LLC


This month I encourage you to create an Ashram. I welcome you to clear a space inside or out, small or large, that’s full of intention, life and crystals. Sometimes we can get so overwhelmed and in our heads that we forget we have the power to create. We can create new habits, new surroundings, new goals, new relationships, etc.

For this project, I had the desire to work with some different stones to create my intention seeded rock garden. The Intention was to connect the Root and Heart Chakras and this Carnelian (see photo gallery below), with its fiery orange and red hues, spoke to me (it looks like possible flower agate as well). When working with crystals, part of the fun is to just grab and go! You will connect with it sooner or later and know exactly what that stone is there to support you with, or you will know exactly who to gift it to. I also had to find something to Ground the energy in my sacred space. I always look for black or metallic pieces to anchor the space. This can be anything you wish or feel called to bring in. The more “you” the better. I’m going to also add some Quartz points, and Pink Nirvana Quartz for the higher Chakras and super high vibration. I set intentions for illumination and peace. I am seeding my happiness and well being. I brought in Pyrite and a Golden Healer for the golden flame of illumination. A magnificent Citrine Smokey tower to release stress, a Shiva Lingam for generative power and Chalcedony for good will.

I’m using Green Calcite to renew purpose and bring vitality, Blue Apatite to bring health and expand spirituality, and some Picture Jasper to connect to Earth mother energy. A few more of my favorites - deep orange Kyanite to connect to the strength and courage inside, Rose Quartz for unconditional love and I’m using a flame to ignite and invoke manifestation energy. I am also setting intentions for clarity as I am full of gratitude.


You can layer your rock garden with plants, water features and anything you wish to honor yourself and space. This is a place to meditate, wander off into your inner self and connect to your higher self. If you're outside, make sure the crystals you choose are able to get wet and withstand weather conditions. A quick list of stones that can’t get wet can be found here:

New Feature!

Raindrop Orchestra


by Krystle J Bailey, Author. Publicist. Freelance Writer.

IG: TheDailyBailey5

I particularly love the different sounds rain makes

depending on which surface it lands on.


A symphony of cleansing.

An orchestra of letting go.


I imagine the clouds freeing themselves of the heaviness of the rain.

Maybe that's why I love the rain so much.


It's like mother earth understands

what it feels like to be bursting at the seams,

unable to take one drop more.


The only way she can go on

Is in the freedom of a good cleansing cry.

One that rinses the remnants of days prior.


It is in her infinite wisdom that she knows,

while the rain releases her burdens,

it is healing those that depend on her.


I imagine her wiping the tears from her cheeks as she begins again

shining

nurturing

loving

giving

holding

building


Until the next exhale.
