Surviving Life 101 - Spiritual Cleansing
Your life is spinning out of control. Everyone you come into contact with except a very limited few seem to be ignorant to you or oblivious to your existence, the fact that you have thoughts and feelings. Your significant other, a loved one, best friend, someone whom you are really close to, who affects your life in magnitudes is either being a real jerk or not emotionally available to you right now. You just want to crawl under your bed or into it, pull the covers up over your head and sleep until this all goes away; but you can't because you have responsibilities.
Your best option now is to do a spiritual cleansing on your self, your personal space and your mode of transportation. Somehow, negativity has taken over your life and you need to reclaim it.
To do this, you will need sea salt, candles and incense. It is fairly simple and anyone can do this to better the quality of life at any time. I typically do one with each seasonal change whether I need to urgently or not. I also do this in my home to aid others in their cleansings as they happen simultaneously. Help is good in this instance. Call on the aid of a close friend or family member. Even a small child can spread handfuls of salt throughout your home. Enjoy this time of cleansing together. The more happiness you show outwardly, the more you will attract into your life.
With that in mind, start by removing any and all cobwebs from your home and/or office. Be sure to check behind doors, furniture and appliances as they like to hide there. Cobwebs have the tendency to catch and hold onto negative energies. If you haven't rid your personal space of cobwebs in a long time, imagine all the negative energies that may be trapped there. Maybe you went through a tough divorce years ago and your life has been in turmoil ever since, you can't find any level of happiness in your life and although you are ready to move on with a new love partner, things never seem to work out. Maybe there was some other devastatingly traumatic experience in your life that you forgot to clean up after...This first step alone will greatly benefit your situation. However, I do recommend that you follow the cleansing all the way through to attract the happiness and beauty into your life that you are worthy of.
Next, go through your home and spread the sea salts all over. Do not forget dark corners, closets, behind and under furniture, wherever you feel a good cleansing is needed. While you are doing this, focus your mind on the intention of removing all negativity. I personally think of this as adding salt to the wound of negative energies, burning them away from me, my family and my home. Also, while you are helping yourself, you may at this point wish to share these intentions with the Universe. Think of others who are suffering right at this moment and don't know what to do. Help them. There's no added work, just the courtesy of a thought ;)
Now you are ready to light the candles and incense. Be sure to spread them throughout your home, office and/or automobile. Place candles in unlit corners to bring light into that area of your life. You don't want to leave anything out. The smoke from the incense will travel through your home and cleanse. At some point, it will meet somewhere in the middle and send smoke signals to the Universe, calling assistance from the forces of Love and Light. Many Lightworkers work for you everyday despite your knowledge of them.
(Lightworkers are beings who have the strong inner desire to spread Light, Knowledge, Freedom and Self-Love throughout the entire galaxy. They sense this as their mission and are often attracted to spirituality and therapeutic work of some kind. Due to the urgency and deep feeling of this mission, Lightworkers often feel different from other people, experience different kinds of obstacles on their Way while life provokes them to find their own unique path. Nearly always solitary individuals, they do not fit into mainstream societal structures.)
At this point, you will need to open all windows possible and your kitchen and bathroom cabinets as well. Open your windows to release the negative energies from your home. The cabinets should be opened to allow the cleansing to work there as well.
Next, go through your home with either a bell, clapping your hands, banging pots together or anything you might come up with creatively to make a lot of noise. Do it loudly. This rushes the negative energy out. This part is fun so enjoy yourself while doing this. Do what your instinct tells you to do: laugh, scream to the bad energies to leave your space now, etc. I often do this with a friend who tends to cackle while we are doing this part of the cleansing. We have lots of fun and I think that spreads throughout the home and flushes it as well. Her home is always full of light once we are done. It's amazing :)
Now, play some soft or happy music, preferably something that is energizing to you and will make you want to dance around a little. Life is in fact a dance. If you dance and/or sing while cleaning, you call on positive energies to enter your space.
From this point in the cleansing, it is all clean up. Sweep, vacuum, dust, take trash out. Remove everything that you don't want there. Don't forget to continue your song and dance. It adds your positive energies, positive emotions to the area being cleansed and makes the lasting affect very nice.
You may use any candles or incense that you wish. It is advisable that you use those things that speak to you personally (feel good to you).
