INSIDE: Restore yourself through spiritual cleansing and start the fall season by tapping into your highest potential. There's no better time than now to start fresh!
We have arrived at the moment when the seasons change. We feel the fall with the change of color in the leaves, the temperature drops and so do our energies. We feel the need to be with ourselves and harvest all that we have planted in the summer, set our intentions, and reset ourselves for this new beginning.
There is nothing more motivating than starting a season feeling refreshed and aligned with our intentions. Spiritual cleansing, especially in the fall, has a special meaning. We can pause to separate what has served us from such a hyped season as summer and let go of what no longer does.
There are several rituals we can practice in ourselves or in our environment for fall spiritual cleansing, and there are tools that can help us, such as the powerful energies of the moon, fire, and crystals.
Let's explore how we can use these tools for our spiritual cleansing...
11 Fall Spiritual Cleansing Rituals
Our spiritual and energetic selves can accumulate quite a few negative energies, emotions, and blockages over a year, or even within a season.
Fall spiritual cleansing rituals are designed to remove these impurities in with the help of fall energies. The result? We get to restore and balance our inner selves with clarity and positive energy.
Here are some of our favorite ways to do it...
Have a Cleansing Fire Ritual
One of the most powerful ways to release negative energy and welcome positive change is through a spiritual cleansing fire ritual. Fire is a powerful symbol of purification, renewal, and the burning away of that which no longer serves us.
Gather around a fire pit or campfire, contemplate what you want to let go of in your life, and offer it to the flames. See the fire burning away your burdens, leaving your life and making room for new beginnings.
Meditate With Fall Crystals
Autumn is a season of grounding and balance, making it an ideal time for a spiritual cleansing meditation in combination with crystals that resonate with fall energies.
Crystals such as Smoky Quartz, Carnelian, and Red Jasper can help us stay centered and focused in autumn. Hold them or place them around you during times of meditation to help welcome in the cleansing energies of fall.
Sage Your House
Smudging with sage and spiritual cleansing herbs is a powerful way to cleanse the energy in our living space. Go from room to room with a bundle of sage and allow the fragrant smoke to cleanse and refresh your home.
A piece of advice? Focus on the corners and doorways where stagnant energy tends to collect, and make sure the windows are open, allowing negative energy to escape.
Make a Spiritual Cleansing Spray
We can create our own spiritual cleansing spray by mixing water with essential oils, such as lavender, sage, or frankincense.
Spritz it around your living space to clear the energy. Spray yourself for a personal cleansing of the body. Carry the spray with you throughout the season to maintain a positive aura everywhere you go.
Cook & Bring in the Aroma of Fall Foods
Welcome the scents of fall by cooking and enjoying seasonal foods like apple sauce, apple cider, and pumpkin bread. The aromas not only stimulate our senses, but also connect us to the essence of autumn and its transformative energy.
Take a Spiritual Cleansing Bath
A relaxing, spiritual cleansing bath with Epsom salts, lavender essential oil, and rose petals can help cleanse our bodies and soothe our spirits. As you soak, visualize the water cleansing you, washing away stress and leaving you refreshed.
Do Some Space Clearing & Decluttering
Spiritual cleansing of our homes can have a profound effect on our mental and emotional well-being. Take some time to clear your home of what you do not need.
Everything we own requires a certain amount of energy to maintain. So, when we engage in space clearing practices like this, we make room for new energy to flow freely into our lives.
Do a Full Moon Ritual
The fall full moon offers us a powerful opportunity to release what is no longer serving us. Participate in a full moon cleansing ritual by writing down your intentions, desires, and what you wish to release. Then, leave it all to the energy of the full moon.
Create a Spiritual Altar for Autumn
A beautiful way to cleanse your soul while welcoming in the new season is to create a sacred space in your home dedicated to the spiritual cleansing energies of autumn. Decorate it with fall foliage, candles, crystals, and symbols of transformation.
You can use this spiritual altar for meditation and reflection throughout the season, or display it prominently as a reminder of the new energies you are bringing in.
Cook & Heal With Spiritual Cleansing Herbs
Incorporate spiritually cleansing herbs, such as sage, rosemary, and thyme into your fall recipes. These herbs have healing properties that can both nourish our bodies and support our spiritual journey.
Write Down What You Want to Let Go of & Burn it
Similar to the spiritual cleansing fire ritual, we can take it a step further and write down the things we want to release on a piece of paper. Then, burn it safely either in campfire, a fireplace, or in a metal bowl. As it turns to ash, visualize the negative energy being released into the universe, never to return.
Engaging in a spiritual cleansing ritual every autumn can be truly restorative and necessary to stay in balance. When we do these things at a marked moment of the year, such as a change of season, it helps us to not only define our intentions and goals for the next season, but also to elicit the energies of the season to help make it so.
Do the ritual you identify with most. Consider using the crystals and herbs that the fall offers us to begin anew this spiritual season. Enjoy!
