The Process of a Spiritual Cleansing
When you are starting your spiritual cleansing, it is often a great idea to clean your body. Take a relaxing bath, using bath salts to truly cleanse deep down in your pores. Remember cleanliness is Godliness and is necessary in many religions before one can partake in meditation, prayers, or spiritual practices. While you are lying there, relaxing in the suds meditate on everything you would like to cleanse or any aspect of your life that you believe needs cleansing. Some people like to write down the things that come to mind as not to accidentally forget something.
Balancing Your Chakras
Once you have cleansed yourself physically, you can begin with the actual spiritual cleansing process of the spirit. Balancing your Chakras, as well as extensive meditation, is a beautiful way to clear your body of negative energies and to restore your aura. Chakras are featured in the yogic and tantric traditions of Buddhism and of Hinduism. These are the centers of the body where one takes in all forms of energy, whether it is negative or positive.
The 7 Chakras
There are 7 chakras located in your body. They begin at the base of your spine and go all the way to the crown of your head. The seven Chakras are:
- Crown Chakra
- Brow Chakra, also known as Third Eye Chakra
- Throat Chakra
- Heart Chakra
- Solar Plexus
- Sacral Chakra
- Root Chakra
There are also said to be seven chakras below going down the leg. You can use numerous techniques you can use to open, clean, and balance your chakras and to push and expel out all negative energy. Breathing exercises are an essential part of Chakra meditation. They will not only help you relax, they will also help push out bad energy and pull in positive energy. Simultaneously, they will be opening up new paths in your body that help you balance and center yourself.
Never underestimate the meditation and breathing part while spiritually cleansing yourself. It works on many levels and even helps you think and comprehend why there may be negative energy in your life, and how you can minimize the negative influences.
Spell to Balance your Chakras
Chakras are the energy centers located in your body. As you have just learned, there are seven chakras in total, and each one is associated with a different color. When the chakras are out of sync, you can experience various types of health-related problems. For example, when the crown chakra is blocked, you may find yourself getting headaches and not know why. Many magic practitioners take the time to cleanse and balance the chakras before undertaking any ritual. Keeping your chakras balanced is an excellent way to help you stay grounded and centered.
This spell is a vocal spell for balancing the chakras. There are no tools or ingredients needed, just a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Before beginning, you should know where each chakra is located and what color it is associated with.
How to Perform the Chakra Balancing Spell
- The first chakra is found at the base of your spine, and its color is red. This chakra controls our overall health.
- Second is the chakra located around the lower abdomen or the womb for women. Its color is orange, and it governs creativity.
- The third chakra is found in the solar plexus, the color is gold, and it controls our will.
- Fourth is the heart chakra, which controls emotions and is associated with the color green.
- The fifth chakra is at the base of the throat, the color is blue, and it affects communication.
- The sixth chakra is the third eye chakra, located between your eyebrows. The color of the third eye chakra is a deep violet-blue; this chakra is responsible for psychic vision.
- The last one is the seventh chakra found at the crown of your head. The color associated is purple, and this chakra governs the connection to the divine.
To balance the chakras, using your voice, hum at the lowest pitch you can. Do this by stretching your jaw down and keeping your lips closed. Gradually raise the tone of your voice until you reach the highest octave your vocal cords will allow. Repeat this vocal exercise for as long as you feel it is necessary. Focus on cleansing each chakra center as you do. Include meditation and breathing exercises to expel the negative energy and replace it with positive energy.
Different Ways of Spiritual Cleansing
Some other rituals and exercises are used to cleanse your self spiritually. Write all the negativity on a piece of paper. Be as specific as possible. Once on paper, you then meditate, deeply envisioning all the negativity that is in your life. Then you envision everything negative catching fire or dissolving, turning into dust, and then the wind blowing it all away. Some find it necessary (depending on your magical tradition) to say a prayer to one’s deity while others will say a mantra. Once you have adequately meditated on it and feel like the time is right, you will light the list on fire, physically burning it. While the paper burns say the following:
I am the purified flame. My spirit is now cleansed totally and freed
Easy Spiritual Cleansing Spell
There is nothing like the power of nature to spiritually cleanse every crook and cranny of your psyche. In almost all cultures the power of sunshine, fresh air, and running water is a cure-all for most emotional problems and almost all of the mental snares we can get into it. There is a part of this ritual that asks you to wish others well as there is nothing more purifying for the spirit.
If you have a problem with fate it is recommended that you take a walk in the woods to an isolated stream or body of water. Make sure the sun is shining.
Ingredients for the Spiritual Cleansing
How to Perform the Spiritual Cleansing
As you go through the woods, pick flowers. Each flower that you pick symbolizes something better that could happen in the future. Pink flowers symbolize love, Blue one’s mental health. White ones symbolize mental purity. Red ones symbolize lust and passion. Yellow flowers and herbs symbolize healing and money.
Take yourself to the body of water near enough to where you can hear it splashing or bubbling. Spread the flowers in a circle at your feet and sit in the center. Light the tobacco with your lighter and then visualize the smoke purifying you spiritually.
Lift your face to the sun and feel it beating down on your face. Ask to be purified. Ask a higher power to take your cares and concerns away. When you feel purified and cleansed open your eyes and gather the flowers at your feet. Cast them into the water thinking about blessings for yourself and for all of those who you love.
This simple spiritual cleansing and purification spell is based on an infusion from an old Celtic “healing waters” spell. The elements in the infusion of water are sacred to the fairies, elves, and good spirits. You may do this spell even if you do not have every single herb or flower bud supplied. Just use as many as you can.
Each element in this infusion has its own meaning. Lavender is for peace and healing. The violet buds are for prosperity. Pine needles heal and clean the aura. Rosemary purifies and cleanses the aura and banishes bad memories. Rose petals are for unconditional love. Lime peel helps you regain emotional or psychic control over a difficult situation. Lemon peel purifies the aura and the physical self.
What you will need for the Purification Spell
- 1 part lavender buds and leaves
- 1 part violet buds
- 2 part rosemary
- 1 part pine needles
- 1 part rose petals
- 2 parts lime peel
- 2 parts lemon peel
How to Cast the Purification Spell
This ritual can be done any time but is most effective if done on a Wednesday.
Boil the herbs and fruit peels in a pot with about a quart of water over medium heat.
When the water is richly colored and the herbs are scenting your kitchen, drain the water off into a jar.
Place the jar in sunlight for an entire day to absorb the radiant energies of the sun.
Just before sundown fetch the jar and run a bath.
Get into the bath and make sure you are wet from head to toe.
Chant these words until you have filled the jar with as much energy as it will hold.
By the sun and the moon
I am cleansed and now pure
Nothing can touch me
Nothing can change me
I am whole, strong and in a state of grace
Now dump the contents of the jar over your head as if you are baptizing yourself. Soak in the bath of moon and sun charged herbs for as long as you can and then pat yourself dry.
