“Empaths are highly attuned, sensitive individuals who have a natural connection to the subtle worlds. These are the subtle worlds of thought, emotion, spirit and energy. These people tend to be artistic, intuitive and right-brained individuals who process the world around them through “feeling”.”
It is essential for empathic people to take time for rest and relaxation. This is how you disconnect from harmful energies, and recharge yourself so that you feel more vital. I urge you to make a daily ritual of this. You will find yourself improving every day.
A powerful way to recharge your essence, and bring yourself to center is through the ritual of bathing. Bathing has been a powerful form of energetic cleansing for thousands of years, and it offers you a chance to charge your energy with good intention.
Adding crystals to your bathwater will create a unique vibration that can infuse the aura, and invigorate the spirit. I have created a simple bath for empaths. Try this and see how you feel.
Crystal Bath for Empaths
Gather 3 crystals: Citrine, Amethyst, and Rose Quartz.
Citrine is the path opener stone. It pushes out negative vibrations and enhances the aura to a state of wellbeing. Amethyst is a stone of protection, and clarity, opening the third eye to help with clear intuitive perception. Amethyst will also act as a vacuum for holding unnecessary energies. Rose Quartz is a heart stone, releasing any bound up energies that may be clogging the heart center.
Combined together, these 3 stones create a calming, healing and stabilizing vibration that will benefit anyone, especially the empath.
Also gather essential oils of lavender, rosemary and geranium.
To create your sacred bath fill you tube half full with warm water. Make sure that the temperature suites a relaxing state of mind. This is a type of meditation, and isn’t meant for bathing with soap. You are creating a sacred moment.
Add to the water 3-5 drops of each oil. Be sure to do this as the water runs, dropping them under the spout so that the oils are dispersed evenly through the bath. You can even drop the oils in ½ cup of witch hazel, and then pour them into the bath.
Now place each stone into the water, focusing on their specific vibration. Ask for their energies to infuse the bath, and charge your aura to bring you into equilibrium, and honor your highest good.
When the bath is ready, simply step in and sink down. Let yourself melt into the calming presence of the scents of the botanicals, the vibration of the crystals and the serenity of being alone, and in the moment.
Release anything that seems to be troubling you. Imagine that it is flowing out, into the water, and transformed by the healing properties. Let yourself be filled with light, and vitality. Feel this in every fiber of your being. You are glowing.
Set an intention for yourself. Affirm that you are safe, balanced and whole. Affirm that you are in this moment, now… fully present, open to the shift, and completely deserving of this gift.
Stay there for at least 15 minutes, or as long as you like. When you are finished express a feeling of gratitude. Towel yourself dry, and turn in for the evening.

I have written extensively on spiritual/psychic cleansing, which is the act of releasing negative, unwanted and unintentional energies that surround you. This is an affirmative process that defines your space, and reestablishes your connection to your highest good. With that being said, spiritual cleansing is just that cleaning.
If you dust your home, rest assured that you will need to dust again. If you cleanse your energy body, you will need to do it again! What a practical concept. You are wiping away the unwanted, but you must replace it with something.
Think about it this way, when you are spiritually cleansing yourself, you are setting an intention hat you are releasing something unwanted, to allow you to connect with something you do want. Break that down… what do you want…well to put it simply you are wanting to be happy, you are wanting to feel good, you are wanting to be whole, completely tapped into your natural state of wellbeing.
Vibration is the key. Everything is a vibration, whether it is a low/negative, or high/positive vibration…everything is vibration. When you are spiritually cleanse yourself, you are ridding yourself of accumulated, negative gunk.
What allowed that negative gunk to form?
You! Your state of being, either consciously, or unconsciously you welcomed those negative vibrations. Now that is not meant to instill a sense of guilt in you, or fear. It is just the fact of the matter. This can come from a simple willingness to be open to whatever is around you. And at different times of your life you will find your defenses are weak.
The key to successful spiritual cleansing is to raise your vibration, and protect your energy self. Raising your vibration means that you are moving from a lower vibratory state, to a higher one. You are moving from fear, to acceptance. You are moving from pain, to wellness. You are moving from anger, to love.
When you clear one vibration, you must replace it with its energetic opposite. This is where most people fall short. If you spiritually release your pain, and then continue to follow pain patterns, then this will only be a very, very temporary fix.
Clear the negativity away, and choose a vibration that is opposite then you will not need to cleanse yourself as often. Taking protective measures after spiritual cleansing will fortify this process, and essentially take you to the next highest vibration.
Name your vibration
Before you do a spiritual cleansing session take some time to meditate on your state of being. Name your vibration. Give it a name. What do you feel in that moment?
Give it a one-word name. Be simple, be clear, and be honest. There is power in a name. If you name something you are getting to the heart of whatever it is. It doesn’t matter the source of your vibration. The vibration itself is all that matters.
Maybe you named your current vibration as anger. So you are feeling anger right now. You are being bound up in anger. You are vibrating with anger, and you are attracting more opportunities for anger.
It doesn’t matter where your feelings of anger come from. They may come from you, and you alone. Or maybe your experience of anger is brought on from someone in your life. On the deepest level all things are coming from you because somewhere you have accepted that state of being.
Remember, everything is a mirror of your inner world.
Later you can look for the source, and make a conscious effort to eliminate, or avoid that thing!
But for now we are naming the vibration. You are experiencing a vibration of anger. So what is the opposite of anger? The opposite of anger is love.
So you are eliminating, cleansing away the vibration of anger to make way for the vibration of love. You want to experience love, and in order to do this you have to wipe away the feelings of anger.
Go through the process of clearing away anger. This can be done in any number of ways. Cleanse yourself with a Sacred Sage Bundle to release negative energy. Try misting a botanical mixture like, The Gypsy’s Aura Elixir. Do a sea salt bath to clear way negative energy. Whatever method works for you… do it.
And then… replace it with the opposite vibration.
How to choose a better vibration
You can simply choose the next vibration. Remember, your most powerful tool for change is your mind. Your mind is the way you direct your reality. When you consciously manifest your life, you can experience whatever you want.
That sounds simple, and easy. And really it is. But for most people it is easier said than done. But here we are, in this moment, choosing to do something different. And that is the key!
Name your next vibration. Name the next highest vibration you can believe in. Maybe you are releasing anger, and wanting to move to a place of love. But love might be way too far off for you to go right now. So we move to a vibration of acceptance.
You are accepting your experience. You are accepting yourself. Acceptance is the pathway to love. Maybe you are going to move to a state of like… and then from there you can move to a state of love.
A few ways to infuse your energy body with a new, higher vibration
Work with crystal energy. Crystals are seeds of energy. They are concentrated forms of intentional vibrations. When you work with crystals you are infusing yourself with the essence of whatever vibration that crystal holds.
In this case we are moving through anger, to love. So using a stone of love, that vibrates with love, will open the heart center, integrating into your vibration, and helping you get to a move loving place.
This can be a simple process of holding a stone of love. Or taking a bath infused with a love crystal. Rose quartz is a powerful stone of love. It is gentle, and friendly. This will help to balance and fortify your intention for love.
Herbs, and botanicals also vibrate at a high rate. Taking an herbal bath will help to infuse your aura with a certain vibratory pattern. The traditional tool Florida Water has been used for years in spiritual practices because it vibrates at a high rate. It basically eradicates negative vibrations.
You can use Florida Water after you have done a traditional spiritual cleansing. Mist yourself with Florida Water, dab it on your wrist. And as you are doing this set the intention for yourself that you are going to feel a higher vibration.
Affirm this, concentrate on it. Meditate on it. Remind yourself of this higher vibration every time you begin to stray from it. And believe it, feel it in every fiber of your being.
When I work with clients during an Intuitive Consultation we are naming the energies at play in their lives. When we name these energies, and see how they are working through life… we can find points of power to make change. This will give you a snapshot of where you are, where you’ve been, and how that is dictating the path you are going down.
When I work with clients during a spiritual cleansing, energy session we are working to remove these negative blocks, and filling the holes with a higher vibration. I enjoy this process because it is a proactive approach to spiritual/psychic cleansing.
We are not only removing, or working to remove the block, but we are trying to replace it with something better.
If something is making you sick, you treat the symptom, and remove the source. If you just treat the symptom of your sickness… in this case your energetic disharmony, without removing the source then you will only get back what you had before.
I invite you to take this step forward. I would be happy to help you along the way. I want you to feel empowered. I want you to move forward in your life in a positive direction. We can do this together if you like.
Follow your heart!
For most of us we see our pets as our friends, and family. For me I consider my beautiful black cat as my best friend, or as I like to call him… my familiar. He is my other half, the wild, spirited side of me! I learn so much from him, and I constantly feel under the invisible protection of his vibrant spirit.
One thing I have learned over the years working with psychic energy, and various cleansing techniques is that our pets not only love us, they also work to heal and protect us. Meaning that at times they take on a lot of unnecessary energy. Not to mention they encounter their own share of emotional ups and downs, and physical ailments.
In which case it is reasonable to consider performing a cleansing, and healing ceremony on your pet friend. There are many techniques you can use for healing and cleansing your pet. But you want to consider two things: Pets are physically sensitive to smells, oils/herbs, and touch. And they may not fully understand what you are doing.
I want to mention that cats are not able to process essential oils, and they can have severe negative effects on their physical health!
I find using a technique that is engaging for my pet works far better. My favorite form of pet cleansing and healing is an egg cleansing. This is a simple, yet very powerful technique! Personally I have had so much success with this technique, and it stands as one of the most curious techniques amongst those interested in the art of spiritual cleansing.
Begin by washing a fresh, white, free-range/organic egg under running water. I like to rinse my egg in a mixture of water, lemon juice, and sea salt. Dry the egg, and place it in a small bowl.
Find your pet; bring him or her a little treat or bowl of food. Talk to your pet sweetly, explain what you are doing, and see how receptive he or she is. You may find your pet is instantly ready for the cleansing session. If your pet isn’t being cooperative give him or her some time. Sit with your pet for a bit, stroking its back, and showing it some affection.
When your pet has decided to participate, begin rubbing the egg from his or her head, down the back, and legs. Do this until you’ve covered the whole body. Do this in a similar fashion to how you would affectionately stroke your pet. He or she should be really excited about this part.
As you are rubbing the egg across your pet’s body, focus on the eggs natural ability to absorb negative energy. See any dark energies being sucked from your pets body, and into the magnetic interior of the egg. Feel out any areas that need special attention. Trust your intuition.
When you have finished crack the egg open into a cup of water. Look at the yoke to see if any interesting shapes or images from in the remains. This can give you clues to the energy surrounding your pet, and any distinct things pulled from its aura.
Dispose of the yoke, and water in the toilet. Flush the contents and visualizing the negative energy leaving for good. At this point I like to pour a cup of vinegar or lemon juice into the toilet and flush again. This ensures that the energy has been washed away, and dissolved.
Rather than breaking the contents of the egg, you can throw it into a running stream, or toss it into a naturalized area off of your property.
Another alternative to this cleansing technique is to wrap the egg in a cloth, or paper bag, tucking it under your pet’s bed. While he or she sleeps the egg will absorb the negative energy in the same way as the above technique. Follow the same method of disposal.
You can repeat this as much as you like. Be sure to always respect your pet’s boundaries! If you pet does not wish to have you perform this ceremony, then do not do it!

Pyrite is one of my favorite stones to work with. You are probably familiar with Pyrite, commonly called, “Fools Gold”. It is a highly reflective, metallic stone that forms in cube shapes, or round disks. When held in one light it shines a soft gold, and turned another it has a lighter, almost silver hue.
Pyrite actually means, “fire” connecting this stone with fire energy. Pyrite grows as cubic crystals made of iron sulfide, which connects it to earth energy. If struck together Pyrite will actually create sparks.
Energetically Pyrite ground, centers, focuses and establishes boundaries and authority. In times when you need to be more focused, extroverted and assertive, Pyrite is a powerful ally. Working with the energy of Pyrite will help to re-establish your natural connection to the earth, pulling it into your core, creating a type of personal “fire” that can be directed to clear away unwanted forces, or ignite new ideas.
Ideally, Pyrite is used for psychic and spiritual protection. Naturally it pulls in stray, excess energy, and mingles this with strong earth energy. This energy creates a force field around the wearer that fortifies the personal aura, but adding an extra layer of armor. This force field establishes personal space, and boundaries, and keeps unwanted influence at bay.
The reflective quality of Pyrite hints at its ability to deflect negative energy and influence. I have found that Pyrite will deflect, and return negative, and harmful thoughts to the sender. This is especially helpful for people who suffer from depression, anxiety, and mental anguish.
Empathics, spiritual workers, and public figures benefit greatly from Pyrite as it helps to define personal space, and boost self-confidence so that you can overcome, face, and eloquently work through any situation. Visualize Pyrite as a grounding rod for high impact energies that are inundating the wearer.
Keeping Pyrite in the workspace is especially auspicious because it transmutes energy. On a deeper level Pyrite ignites an alchemical process that marries Earth and Sun. When kept in a workspace you will begin to feel a subtle strength that permeates the air, adding to the flow of creative ideas, confidence, and the ability to follow through to the end.
Pyrites transformative quality is the core of its power as a protective stone. Unlike stones that just ward off negative energy, Pyrite actually pulls the unwanted energy into it’s core, thus establishing a protective boundary that will deflect any remaining energy that works to overwhelm it’s perimeter. I like to this of Pyrite as a proactive stone. It doesn’t passively weather the storm, it works to shift and change the energies at play for a more conducive atmosphere.
Tapping into the protective nature of this stone is simple. Find a beautiful piece of Pyrite that speaks to you. Hold it in your hand; establish a connection with the stone by feeling it. Let it speak to you. Befriend it.
What does it feel like when you hold it?
What parts of your body does it activate?
What emotions, sensations, and impression do you have?
Graciously ask for your Pyrite crystal to create a protective barrier around you. You can be general, or very specific about what you wish to be shielded from. I like to affirm my intention by speaking out loud to the crystal. Holding it in my hand, turning it around gently on all sides. Breathing into its life force, and inhaling it into my own.
Once you have established this connection carry your crystal with you. Keep it in your pocket, purse, or on a piece of jewelry. I carry a bag that I keep my current crystal friends in. When I am working in a stationary setting I will take them all out, one by one, saying hello, reaffirming my intention and asking for their help again, and then I arrange them around me!
Sleeping with Pyrite on your bedside table, or under your pillow is especially powerful. This is beneficial for people who feel they are under psychic attach, extreme pressure, or if you are experiencing nightmares.
Cleanse and recharge Pyrite crystals by placing them in a bowl of rock salt. Set them in a sunny window to recharge, and pull out their luster. Never put them in water. Pyrite is especially friendly with Black Tourmaline, and Hematite.

I want to talk about psychic and spiritual cleansing for another individual. This is a subject that has come up a lot in recent emails, and comments so I think it is important to address it here.
When working for other people in a psychic/spiritual sense there are many layers to the process because you are working with energy, more specifically, the energy surrounding the individual. In order to have a truly solid working the person should be open, and receptive to the cleansing process. If they aren’t open to the process, then they most likely aren’t ready to release whatever is around them.
This does not mean that a cleansing can’t be performed. On some level their higher self may be receptive to this wave of good energy, and willing to let it in. But when people are in psychic trauma they usually oppose whatever has their best interest in mind. So if you are performing a cleansing on someone who isn’t aware of this, you must send it out with the intention that they will receive the good energy if they would like!
With all rituals you are trying to create an energetic and conscious shift through the use of symbolic language and concentrated energy… this can be done in many ways, some simple, and some elaborate. But the process of spiritually cleansing another person can be very simple. All you will need are a few tools of intention.
To begin we will work with a few candles, as they are powerful forms of concentrated and focused energy used by many religions and paths throughout history, and the world! Read more about candle’s here!
You will choose a candle that represents the person being cleansed. This candle is often called an, Astral candle, it represent the person on an energetic level. Often times this candle will be in the color associated to their astrological sign. You can find this information below.
You will need a black, or white candle. This candle will be the magnet that attracts and holds whatever negative energy and attachments are connected to the person being cleansed. This is essential a psychic vacuum, much like an egg is used in spiritual cleansing. Read about Limpia with an Egg here.
You will also need a blue, or pink candle. This candle will be filled with an intention of love, positive energy, health and Universal blessing. Whenever you are performing a spiritual cleansing you want to fill the spaces that are cleared away with good energy! Move something in time and space, and something else must take its place.
Gather together your 3 candles, along with sea salt, spring water, sweetly scented incense, and a lighter. You can also have a piece of paper with the persons name written on it, or a photograph of them. This is an energetic connection to them to help focus your intention.
Find a space where you will not be disturbed. Place all of your tools of intention on a table, tray or in one area of the ground. Make sure you have proper candleholders, a pitcher of water nearby for accidents, and that nothing will be in the way of the candles as they burn. You may want to place them on a plate so you can easily move them to burn after the cleansing.
When you are ready to begin find a seated position on the floor. Close your eyes and begin to breathe deeply. Let your breath become rhythmic… in and out. Feeling your belly expand, rise, and then fall. Lulling you deeper into a meditative state.
Allow your mind to unwind. Your thoughts to disentangle. Relax your feet, your legs, your hips, and your core. Relax your chest, your shoulders, neck and arms. Let your head fall down between your shoulder blades. Let it hang for a few moments just feeling a good stretch. Keep breathing. Keeping your rhythm.
Now begin to visualize yourself being surrounded by a beautiful bubble of white light. See it glow brightly, growing around you and forming a beautiful protective barrier. This is the white light of the Universe surrounding you in protection.
Around this white light visualize a beautiful blue light. This blue light glows brightly with a gentle hue that evokes a feeling of love, and healing. This is the healing light of the Universe adding to your intention.
Now you can begin your intention for cleansing.
Mix the sea salt, and spring water together. This is a powerful cleansing agent. Sprinkle the salt water around yourself, and around the space. Sprinkle it over the candles, and the other tools you have gathered.
Now light the incense. Let the smoke waft around the space, and around your body. Let it lift the energy in the air, and create an atmosphere of power, and sacred healing. Take your 3 candles and waft them through the smoke of the incense to release any stray energy held within.
Hold in your hands the first candle, the astral candle. Wash it gently with salt water, allowing it to cleanse and bless the candle. Now with the candle held in your palms begin to concentrate and visualize the person begin cleansed. Think of them as they are now. Their personality, their physical characteristics, their voice, their movement. Their mental and emotional state. Intend that this candle represent whomever you are cleansing.
Place the candleholder overtop of the photo/paper with their name on it. Now light the candle in the holder and say:
I affirm that this light is (name the person).
Now hold in your hands the second candle, either black or white. Wash it with salt water. With the candle in your palms begin to focus on the person being cleansed. Focus on their condition. See all the pain, the struggle, the sorrow, the attachments and limiting energies going into the candle. Intend that the candle is a magnet that attracts and absorbs the heavy energy surrounding whomever you are cleansing.
Light this candle from the astral candle. As the flame of the astral candle lights the flame of the banishing candle, see it as transference of negative energy. From the person you are cleansing, to the candle! Now place it in the holder and say:
As this candle burns down, so does the negative energy surrounding (name the person).
Take the last candle in your hand, blue or pink. Wash it with salt water. Hold it in your palms and visualize it glowing with a beautiful light filled with love, blessing, and healing and positive energy. See this candle as a beacon of blessing, shinning into the life of the person being cleansed.
Light this candle in the flame of the astral candle. See this as a new life for the person. As the flame burns brightly, say:
I intend that as this flame burns bright it fills the life of (name the person) with love, happiness, healing, positive energy and blessing. This is the light of the Universe smiling upon him or her.
Take some time to allow the candles to burn, and just breathe into your intention. Continue to visualize the power behind the candles. See the person being released of all negative energy, and being blessed. Visualize them being surrounded by the white light of protection, and the blue light of healing.
Now say a prayer, silently or out loud:
This cleansing session is for the highest good of (name the person). This intention is his or hers to freely accept.
Allow the candles to completely burn down. If, for some reason, you have to extinguish them before they can burn down, do it with a snuffer! Place the remaining stubs in a paper bag, sprinkle sea salt over it, and dispose of them in the trash.
This spiritual and psychic cleansing ceremony can be used for another person, or you can use it for yourself. The choice is yours. Just change the wording accordingly. Make sure you feel confident about performing a cleansing like this. Listen to your intuition, and evaluate your own energy levels!
