We’ve talked about clearing your tools with intention, with sun and moonlight, with water and with earth. Let’s talk about using another element for clearing- lets talk about air.

The best way to clear energy with air is the use of sound. There are lots of ways that you can smudge an object or a space with sound. You can:

  • chant or tone,
  • drum,
  • use other percussion instruments, such as rattles,
  • clap your hands or stomp your feet,
  • use a singing bowl,
  • or pretty much any other kind of sound that you chose.

The basics of smudging with sound are:

  • position the object or yourself so the sound gets into every part of the tool or space. This may mean that you position yourself so that you can bathe the tool in sound from all sides or that you have to move around the object or space so you get every part of it.
  • set an intention that the sound will clear your tool of any energy that is unnecessary, dysfunctional or harmful and that energy will be disposed of safely or recycled into something positive.
  • be aware that, in the process of clearing with sound, some of the sounds may be unpleasant or unharmonious. Roll with that.
  • Listen to your body and your inner wisdom for cues on when you may make the sound louder or softer, spend more time on a section, or change the rhythm or pitch of your sound.
  • Places where the sound suddenly changes (quieter/softer/muddy)are places where there is stuck energy and extra sound is needed.

When the sound sounds right and you feel like the energy is good, your tool is cleared.

Water is a great way to clear metaphysical tools, but earth is another element that you can use for clearing unwanted energy

teal aura eyes C

  • Find a place outdoors where you can place your item on the ground. Set an intention that all negative, excessive or unwanted energy will soak into the earth and be recycled into something  positive or productive. Pick a place where it will be safe and not blow away or walk off.
  • If your item won’t be harmed by the process (as an example, not good for books), you can bury it and let the earth work on it from all directions. Set your intention as before
  • If the energy is excessive or unwanted, but not negative, you can ask a plant to take that energy. Set up a flowerpot with a growing plant in it (something sturdy is better, so you don’t give it indigestion). Ask the plant if it is willing to take any unwanted energy and transform it into something positive, and go inward to listen for a response. If the plant is agreeable, place your item on the potting soil and let the plant go to work.
  • Some crystals, such as black tourmaline, are self cleaning. Some, such as hematite,  are good for grounding out negative energy. Some, such as the combination of amber and jet, are good for clearing negative energy and transforming it into positive energy. Keep in mind that some crystals are tools that you can use to clear other tools.

How long does clearing like this take? It depends on the method, the item and the amount and type of unwanted energy. I like to give it at least one moon cycle, but sometimes you don’t have that much time. The best way to know if you’re done is to pick the item out, close your eyes, screen out other distractions, and pay attention to how that tool feels and how you feel holding that tool. If it’s busy or buzzy, if it makes you feel tense, if it doesn’t feel right, you need to clear it some more. If you feel good when you hold it, you’re ready to go.

More ways to clear tools are coming…

Another way to clear your tools of unwanted energy is to use water. Water works well from a number of reasons.

  • It’s one of the four elements.
  • It’s fluid and  flexible.
  • It’s powerful (given long enough, a drip of water can wear away rock.)
  • And, when we think of cleaning, we tend to think of water, and that symbolic link makes it good for energetic cleansing as well.teal aura eyes C

There are a number of ways to use water to clear a tool energetically. Two of the better ones are

  • You can put it in a container filled with water to soak, setting the intention that the unwanted energy will release into the water and you can discard it later, or
  • You can hold the object under running water, setting the intention that the unwanted energy will be washed away and return to the earth to be transformed into something beneficial.

It’s important to note that some items can be damaged by water

  • Some crystals are soluble and can dissolve in water
  • Some other items, such as ones made of paper, may dissolve

If there’s any question whether a tool might by damaged by water, you would want to use a different method for clearing its energy

So here we are in the holiday times of the year. It’s a wonderful time, but it can also be a stressful one.

No matter what spiritual path you’re on, , it’s easy to get stressed during the holidays, given everything we  try to get done then. Even if we’re working hard at making merry, we all can use a way to let go of stress at holiday time

In expectation of miracleLet me make you an early holiday gift of one…(It’s a gift that keeps giving…)

The next time you’re feeling anxious, angry, overwhelmed or down, instead of suffering, try this:

Take a deep breath, and

Look up at the ceiling.

(Repeat as needed…)

Give it a try now. Think of something that brings you down (income taxes, your least-favorite co-worker, cleaning out the fridge,…). Notice how it makes you feel,where it hits you in the body and in the spirit…

Then breath deep and look up. Feel the difference?

While it’s no substitute for Prozaac, most people find that when they do this, they feel more positive, centered and able to cope with whatever’s going on in their lives.

Why does this work?

When we’re stressed, we breath in a short and shallow way. Breathing deeply and slowly triggers a mind-body connection saying “all is well”, and actually puts us in a better place, health and emotion-wise. Looking up seems to strengthen this reaction ( and when I’m facing challenges, I find looking up valuable for spiritual reasons as well…).

I like to think that we’re all hardwired with ways to change our beliefs, heal ourselves, find our centers and create our own best lives.

And, by the by, this technique is not just for the holidays, but works all year long. …

In any case, remember next time you’re feeling overwhelmed or down, breath deep and look up… and have a better day (or holiday)

PS  and just a thought- don’t do this in front of your pushy aunt  Margaret, your boss or any other person that is contributing to stress you’re feeling. They will surely take it the wrong way and this is the path to more stress…

Right now, we’re living in a world in flux. Not only the everyday stresses, but lots of other big things going on. Terrorism. Political upheaval. The economy. War.

And a lot of people find this all overwhelming. Even scary.

That’s a reasonable reaction- but there’s one that’s even better.

Don’t focus on what’s wrong in the world. Focus on what’s right instead. Count your blessings. Give thanks

The Law of Attraction says that what we focus most on determines what we get more of, whether by attracting it to us or by manifesting it out of nowhere. When we focus on what’s right with our world, we shape it into something better and we attract more of the good stuff

And in this day and age, that may not only improve our lives, but also the lives of the people around us as well.

So, on this day of Thanksgiving,  take time to give thanks. As you enjoy your turkey, count your blessings and give thanks for all of the things that are good in your life and everything that is working

And make this world a better place

Happy Thanksgiving

Catherine

Whether you’ve got a metaphysical tool that’s picked up some energy you don’t want to hold on to, or whether it’s a new tool and you don’t know what it’s already carrying, you’re gonna want to clear your tools of unwanted energyteal aura eyes C

One way to do that is with sunlight or moonlight.

Natural light, especially when paired with an appropriate intention has a great deal of power for clearing out that negative energy. Some people will leave a tool in the sunlight or moonlight for 24 hours, others prefer a full solar or lunar cycle.

Find a place where you can leave tools so that they are exposed to sun or moonlight but still safe and private. Some folks like to leave them outside- I usually put crystals and other items in the bathroom window on the back of my house, where they can take the sun without someone else helping themselves to them

When your tool has had its sun bath, pick it up, close your eyes and pay attention. How does it feel- does it feel clear and open to you, or is it still buzzing with excess unwanted or negative energy? Sometimes tools may need additional time to clear.

More ways to clear tools are coming…

You clear the energy of tools when they’re new, to be sure that they haven’t picked up other energy that  you don’t want and that could affect what you’re doing with them. You clear the energy of tools when you’ve had them for awhile, because even if you’re the only one using them, they may still pick up energy you don’t want them to carry.

You clear the energy of your tools when your inner wisdom tells you it’s time to clear them.

And, before we get into the various ways that you can clear the energy of tools,  lets start out with a step that you will use with just about every method of clearing your tools.

Let’s start with setting an intention.teal aura eyes C

As I’ve said before, setting an intention  just a fancy-schmancy way of setting a goal for what your energywork (be it spell, visualization, prayer or energy manipulation) is going to do. In this case, the intention will be something like “It is my intention that the ________ will clear any unwanted energy out of this tool, leaving it in perfect condition for me to work with.”

(Please note- those words are not exact and you may substitute a way of saying that that you feel comfortable with. The example is just to give you a template to work with.)

How do you set that intention? You can:

  • Think it.
  • Say it.
  • Chant it
  • Sing it.
  • Write it (once or as many times as seems right to you. Three is a magick number, for instance)
  • Put it out to the Universe in any other way that seems right to you.

And focus on your intention as you go ahead and do your clearing process- because energy flows where your attention goes.

Easy- peasy…

And now, we’re ready to go on to ways to clear your tools of unwanted energy…
