So, last week we took a good look to determine how you can tell if you have been slimed. That alone is worthless, unless you know how to clear the energy, right? What I teach my students is when we release energy, we have to replace it. Why? Nature abhors a vacuum. 1. State your intention to clear the energies Place both hands on your heart and say your intention out loud, a few times. We gain and lose a lot of power from our throat chakra. Use the power of your voice for clearing and protection. 2. Yawn away the negative energy Yawning (& farting) are great tools for clearing. (Those around you would probably prefer that you stick to yawning). 3. Rosemary, Sage or Palo Santo Sage is the most well-known herb used for this clearing technique, but Palo Santo or Rosemary work well too. Light the sage, palo santo, or rosemary, and when you have a good flame, blow it out. Using the smoke, counter clockwise “spin” all seven of your chakras. As you go through each chakra, pull your arm away from that area like you’re pulling a scarf off of your neck with one hand. Then smudge around your outer energy field. (Don’t forget the bottom of your feet!) Next, go around your whole house, making sure you get into all the corners and under furniture. Open windows and doors so the lower energies leave the space as you command them away. Hint: If you have money issues (especially if it popped up recently), clear your purse/wallet with the smoke, too. 4. Say a clearing and protection prayer/mantra Here is an example: I, (insert your full name), refuse any living and non-physical being to enter my body, mind, soul, spirit and energy field for intentions other than love. I break all contracts, vows and agreements I might have made knowingly or unknowingly in all time, space, and dimensions that in any way diminish the fullest expression of my joyful soul essence. I break these agreements from this moment backwards, through every experience of my past, & from this moment forward until the end of all time. I command that these energies & people to leave my space NOW! They have no power over me. I ask for divine protection from these energies, that they NOT return to my energy field in any way, for any reason. I now build a shield of light around me with this heart intention and my free will. I thank you that it’s already done. I suggest repeating this mantra daily or weekly, out loud. Place your right hand over the back of your throat chakra as you say this prayer. Feel free to modify this prayer to make it “yours”. 5. Use a rattle to break up the energy …and move around in your space while you’re rattling. 6. Burn lemon peels Use a cheese grater to get some peels and throw them into a non-stick pan to cook for a short time, like you’re sautéing onions. The smell will fill up your space to repel any lower energies that may be lurking in it. 7. Laugh it off Laughter is a very effective tool for clearing lower energy. Joy is the highest vibration there is, so it works beautifully for canceling out lower vibrations. 8. Light a candle …with the intention that the flame absorbs and melts away these lower energies. 9. Salt Sprinkle a very small amount (a few crystals) of Himalayan salt into warm water, mix it well and drink it. Or – draw a hot bath and put a few table spoons of it in the tub to soak in. If you don’t have a bath tub, you can take a shower, putting the salt on the floor. In either case, set the intention that the water will pull away the negative energy as it is released back to the earth to be cleared. 10. Create an ‘attractor’ for lower energies Pour a glass of water and set the intention that lower energies that are in your field will be absorbed by this water. Keep the glass filled with water until your energy feels clear and free. Then pour the water in the toilet and flush it, or pour it out in the yard for the lower energy to be transformed back into love by mother earth.
