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