7 Energy Cleansing Rituals for Your Body, Mind & Spirit
If you regularly feel like a dissatisfied and unhappy wreck despite your want for freedom, serenity, and joy, you are certainly not alone.
You've probably had moments of feeling fantastic, only to have it be derailed by the actions of another person or thing. The bad energy from that person or scenario may have attached itself to your aura.
It's crucial to guard yourself against negative energy, since it hinders the human energy field.
Here are 7 energy cleansing rituals to help...
Clearing Energy with Crystals
Energy cleansing rituals often include the use of crystals and healing stones because their crystalline structure allows them to absorb negative energy from their environment.
These spiritual tools can be used in numerous different ways. It can be as simple as wearing them as jewelry, carrying them in your pocket, placing them on your desk or pillow, infusing them with your intention, making a crystal grid, or using them during meditation.
We have been blessed with a diverse assortment of crystals, with each one having certain beneficial energies and healing properties.
To choose the crystal that is most suitable for you, simply follow your gut. When you tune inward, you will find that you are drawn toward the crystal that can help you the most at the moment.

Smudging Your Environment
Burning dried sage or other kinds of dry herbs is an ancient Native American energy cleansing ritual that is performed with the intention of purifying oneself or one's surroundings.
Smudging may be done by anybody. Smudge sticks, such as sage and palo santo, are all you need. Simply light the stick, blow out the flame, and waft the smoke around the space to clear out negative energy.
It is recommended that the ash be contained in a container of some type so that it does not disperse. Many people like to use an abalone shell for this purpose.
You can also cleanse yourself by letting the smoke flow around your body. Start at the top of your head and work your way down to the soles of your feet.
Use Essential Oil Sprays
Essential oils have been used for their ability to aid in the release of negative energy and the promotion of good energy since ancient times. They have the power to alter your frame of mind and take you to a mental place that is cheerier and more positive.
There are hundreds of options available to be used in energy cleansing rituals, so you can really tailor your rituals to be anything you want them to be. You can diffuse them, dab some on your skin, and some (not all) can even be used internally.
Here are some examples of how to use certain oils in your rituals:
- Diffuse Lavender essential oil while meditating to benefit from its stress-relieving properties.
- Dab some Orange essential oil on your wrists to bring in a feeling of happiness.
- Open a bottle of Frankincense essential oil and breathe it in before you sit down to do some journaling to open up your spiritual senses.
Have a Singing Bowl Sound Bath
The tranquil sounds that come from a singing bowl can promote overall relaxation, helping us let go of built-up tension, anxiety, and other unfavorable sentiments and emotions.
As you move the mallet around the top edge of the singing bowl, close your eyes and allow the sound to reverberate throughout your body. As you do, imagine, your cells being cleansed of all negative energy. See your aura colors brightening.
These energy cleansing rituals can be done at the end of a stressful day, at the beginning of your day, or any time you need a break throughout your day.
Use Epsom Salt on Your Body & in Your Home
Epsom salt is not only an effective detoxifier for the body, but also an important Feng Shui cure that can be used to purify your home and your life.
Put bowls of Epsom salt in various locations around the house so that the salt can function as a magnet, pulling out negative energy that has been stuck in your home.
Cleaning portions of your house with salt water, such as the windowsills, the kitchen floor, inside the refrigerator, and the bathtub, can also help to clear stagnant energy from the home.
Of course, the most common way to use epsom salt is to place them in your bath water. Soaking in water that is infused with epsom salts helps to detoxify the body and ease aching muscles.
The traditional Chinese practice of Feng shui is primarily based on the idea that the placement of things in a space can encourage or obstruct the flow of good energy. To experience joy, good health, and plenty of resources, we require this energy to flow freely.
Clutter, along with other items in your home that you do not use or enjoy, obstructs the natural flow of energy and leads to the accumulation of stagnant energy. When you're surrounded by this energy, you'll have a hard time moving forward in your life. It can affect your motivation and energy levels.
When the energy isn't flowing in your space, the act of life itself can feel like work as if you're always fighting against the river rather than flowing with it effortlessly. With energy cleansing rituals for clutter clearing, you can balance and refresh that energy.
Take these simple steps:
- Choose a room to start with.
- Put away clutter.
- Donate things you don't need or haven't used in a while.
- Organize the items in drawers, cabinets, or closets so clutter is not left out.
- Arrange the furniture in the room so that it feels inviting and open.
A clean and minimalist area not only enables energy to flow easily through it but also produces an atmosphere that is quieter and more tranquil. You'll have an expansive feeling, a sense of freedom, and you'll feel like you can think more clearly and breathe more deeply again.
Clearing Energy with Feng Shui Practices
According to Feng Shui, the presence of Si Chi, which is low decaying energy, causes a place to appear dull and lifeless. This is because Si Chi is an energy that is in the process of deteriorating.
The absence of order, the presence of sharp items, and buildings that block the flow of energy may all contribute to the formation of negative or stagnant energies.
There are so many Feng Shui tips that you can use to clear energy in your home or work space.
Feng Shui plants with colorful flowers and fragrant leaves, or herbs, such as basil, rosemary, or mint, can be dispersed around the home to help clear bad energy from the area while simultaneously energizing the environment with good vibrations.
The ringing of bells or wind chimes is another common Feng Shui strategy that creates favorable vibrations and facilitates the smooth flow of Chi.
The more you include energy cleansing rituals in your life, the more free and happy you will feel. There are so many options and you should seek out the methods that feel fun for you. Enjoy!
