While winter is the season of hibernation, and self care, in Spring we emerge, just like nature does, to show the fruits of our winter sabbatical.
You are no doubt aware of traditional spring cleaning where we are focused on cleaning our physical spaces. I wish to introduce you to energetic spring cleaning. To be honest though, this does not need to be confined just to Spring.
There are a variety of ways to clear the energy in and around our spaces and ourselves. Choose the method or methods which resonate with you, and use when you are feeling guided to. You may be guided to switch it up as spring progresses using most, or even all of the methods below.
Diffuse Essential Oils - Lemongrass is a powerful tool in cleansing the energy within a house, room or office space. It also encourages those with hoarding tendencies to courageously let go of everything they no longer need, so it’s a great one to use when decluttering. Follow with Frankincense which will significantly raise the vibration in the room.
Use Incense Sticks - Find a quality Frankincense incense. Allow the smoke to permeate the room, then open the windows allowing the smoke and the wind to transport the energies out of the space. Frankincense is a powerful tool for raising the vibration in a space. Sage can also be used in the same way. Sage will clear the lower vibrational energies out. Be sure to catch the ashes as they fall. I use a half paua shell for this, but any heat proof container will do.
Invoke the Violet Flame - The Violet Flame has been gifted back to humanity to transmute lower energies to the light. Call on St. Germain and the Violet Fire to blaze through your home, clearing and transmuting all that is needed. You may visualise a purple flame traveling through your space as required. You can also utilise the Violet Fire as protection around your property boundaries. Call on St. Germain as above, and sense the wall of purple fire remaining on your boundary.
Call in Archangel Michael - Archangel Michael is able to assist us with many things, but only if we ask. This is the planet of free-will, so the Beings of Light are not allowed to interfere without our permission. Invite Archangel Michael to bring his flaming blue sword to remove any cords and attachments from your energy field which are no longer serving you.
The Seekers - no, not the Australian music group from the 60’s/70’s, but a specialist team residing in the quantum that you are able to call upon.
“Seekers Activate. Enter this building/room/yard (insert as appropriate) removing all that does not belong. If it refuses to leave, eliminate. Activate”
Open the windows - such a simple way to clear out stagnant energy. Allowing the sun and the breeze to sweep through your space, moving the older energy out and literally allowing fresh energy in.
Declutter - Now, you may believe that decluttering is purely a physical cleanse. While it does cleanse on a physical level, it also serves to clear our space energetically. Removing possessions that no longer spark joy (a la Marie Kondo), or just removing bits and bobs past their use-by date, does wonders for shifting stagnant energy from our homes, as well as assisting us in feeling lighter and more free. There are many books and websites dedicated to de-cluttering, so if this is a clearing method which resonates to you, there is no shortage of information out there.
There are of course many more methods. Some of these delve a little deeper, removing entities and spirits, which generally requires someone who has specific experience with this.
However, these ways I have shared, are useful for basic energetic space clearing, and can be done on a weekly or even a daily basis if you are guided to.
Happy Spring Cleaning!
