The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Citrine the Path Opener

The idea of the Labyrinth has always fascinated me because it is a metaphor for life. There are many challenges we encounter; we look for the “right” path to follow. But if you stop and be still you realize that the only path you can follow is the one before you. You must keep moving forward to reach your highest potential.

That doesn’t mean there is a set destiny that you are locked into. Life is a Labyrinth. There are many turns, dead-ends and complications. Sometimes you are completely lost, and completely confused. The truth is you cannot make it to the end of the maze if you sit down where you stand. Stay in motion!

I have found stones to be very beneficial in helping to shift energy to spiritually cleanse and create change. As I meditate on the idea of the Labyrinth I see the stone Citrine. This is the “Path Opener” stone.

Citrine is a beautiful yellow and white stone with a crystalline structure that allows light to pass through its transparent surface. If you look closely amongst the cloudy areas of white and honey you will see glimmers of rainbow light. Citrine has a gentle feeling of empowerment and nourishment.

Citrine has been regarded as a stone of success and luck. It is said to attract prosperity to sales people and merchants. It shifts a perspective of lack, to one of abundance. Citrine has the energetic properties to bring about dreams.

Citrine never absorbs negative energy, so it never needs to be cleansed. It actually breaks up negative energy and helps to dissolve it in the atmosphere. Because it helps to nullify negative influence it increases your sense of personal power and allows you to have clarity of thoughts and emotions.

Mentally and emotionally citrine works to shift the thought patterns and feelings that are limiting your success. This stone simultaneously dissipates limiting vibrations, and pushes you upward to a more inspired state of being. This rise in vibration aligns you with Spirit and helps you live a more authentic life.

The source of energetic blocks doesn’t matter when working with this stone because it permeates the aura with a type of charge that releases blocks, and then realigns and magnetizes your energy field to attract positive influence. This is why it is called the Path Opener. It opens all the closed doors to success.

Citrine Labyrinth

You can use the influence of citrine to help you work through your own personal labyrinth. This will work to clear away blocks and obstacles on your path, and energetically push you into a place of success.

To begin gather a few citrine crystals, a variety of markers, and a large sheet of white paper.

 

Give yourself some alone time. Put yourself in a relaxed state. Ground and center.

 

Contemplate where you are in life. Look at the areas that feel blocked, stagnant or negative. As yourself where you need to “freshen” things up, and create some traction to align you with your goals.

 

If you’ve picked 3 areas then draw a triangle on the sheet of paper. If you’ve picked 5 then draw a five-point star. Draw a large circle at each point, and in the circle write a word or phrase to sum up the blocked area you are working on shifting.

 

Now take one crystal per block you are working on. Cup it in your hand and focus on your breathing. Let yourself move into the essence of the crystal. Place your thoughts and feelings into the crystal programming it to create change in the chosen area. This will align the crystal with your intention. Now place the crystal at that point.

 

Do this for each blocked area.

 

Leave the crystal grid in a safe place where it will not be disturbed. You can visit often and reaffirm your intention. Let the grid stay active until you see change in each area.

 

Other Ways to Use Citrine:

 

  1. Wear Citrine. You can access the influence of this powerful stone by simply wearing it. You can wear it as a pendent, or set in a piece of jewelry. Traditionally you would wear a stone as close to the body as possible. This can be done by tucking it into an undergarment, or creating a charm bag that can be worn under the clothes. Make sure to program your crystals by holding them and sending thought forms explaining what you need the crystal to do. This will activate it!
  2. Create an Elixir from Citrine. Citrine is a type of quartz, which makes it safe to use as an elixir. You can infuse spring water with the properties of citrine by adding a few citrine crystals to a fresh jar and placing it in sunlight for a few hours. This can be added to bath water to create a spiritual bath to infuse your aura, or you can drink the mixture alone or add it to tea, etc. Either way the water will yield the results of the stone. I find this method to be very effective.
  3. Place Citrine in a Purse. Traditionally citrine would be placed in a purse, or any place you would keep money. You can add a few crystals to your cash register. This will help keep the vibration of your money clear, and allow you to multiply by magnifying your intention of prosperity.

 

As with all energy work… the power is in the intention! Be ready for change so that the crystals can begin helping you attract the life you want.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Introduction

Have you ever stepped into a room that felt peculiar? Have you ever placed your hands on an object that just didn’t feel right? Have you ever found yourself in a foul mood for no reason? Sounds to me like you need some spiritual cleansing and protection!!

We have all had those uncanny experiences of taking on another persons mood, feeling on edge in a room after a fight, or not wanting to go near that old object for no logical reason. It may seem like it’s all in your head, but it’s actually you being affected by energy.

We are all made up of energy, we are constantly interacting with energy and we are always directing energy. Thought forms linger and hang heavy in the air like bubbles. Energy collects like dust. Everything takes on an aura that is part intrinsic life force and part accumulated clutter of everything that has ever come into contact with it… you included!

Spiritual cleansing is the act of energetically clearing the slate. You wipe away all debris that has accumulated over time from different experiences. This can make a space feel lighter and brighter, it can improve your mood and release any uneasy feelings that may hang in the atmosphere.

Everything can be spiritually cleansed and protected. Begin with yourself and your home. But don’t neglect spiritually cleansing and protecting your vehicle, your pets and all other objects in your life! Always spiritually cleanse anything foreign you’ve drug into your life: old furniture, books, objects from the thrift-store, everything!

Spiritual cleansing should be a part of your daily routine. If you practice spiritual cleansing and protection you will feel much more vital and positive. You give yourself the chance to fully utilize your energy for conscious manifestation!

So I’m sure by now you are asking, “How do I do this magical business?” ….well let me share with you a few basic techniques:

Basic Spiritual Cleansing Exercise:

Fumigation is one of the simplest and most effective forms of spiritual cleansing. This lifts the negative or stray energetic debris creating a fresh and balanced aura.

All you need is a smudge of cedar or sage or a stick of your favorite incense.

Light your smudge and begin wafting the smoke around whatever object you are cleansing or yourself if you are performing a self-cleansing. Allow the smoke to encompass the object.

You can also perform this simple ritual in your home by wafting smoke into corners, closets, doorways and windows. Make sure you allow smoke to creep into the dark places. Remember, if it collects dust, then it collects stray energy!

I recommend doing this weekly or when you are feeling under the weather or need to clear the air! This should also be performed anytime you bring a new object into your life or if you move into a new space.

Basic Spiritual Protection Exercise:

Spiritual protection is a form of “sealing” the aura so that good energies stay in and unwanted energies stay out. This will disentangle your energy from that of other people and stop you from taking on the mood of others or keep you from feeling drained.

Basic visualization is all you need for this exercise. Close your eyes, focus on your breathing and allow yourself to get to a place of ease. Begin by seeing a waterfall of pure, white light flowing from the Universe and encompassing whatever you are spiritually protecting.

The white light will create a spiritual force field around the object of your visualization. I recommend doing this as often as possible. You should begin each day by spiritually protecting yourself. Put up your white light before meetings, if you are meeting with someone particularly cantankerous, or when you are on edge.

You can read more about white-light exercises, here.

There are many forms of spiritual protection and cleansing. Some are more in-depth than others, but the basic results are the same. I will be posting new tips, tricks and techniques regularly.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Understanding Energetic Cords

Energetic cords are created from attachments that we make to people, places, things and ideas. Negative energetic cords are often the source of our depleted energy, fatigue, depression and anxiety… and they can keep us from manifesting our goals, dreams and desires.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Got White Light? Staying “Psychically” Safe

Lately I’ve been thinking about psychic protection and how important it is. I am constantly around new people, rushing on and off buses and down hectic streets and I constantly feel the invasive and alien presence of other people’s energies trying to intermingle with my own. I always place protection around myself, but its in those moments especially I silently surround myself with a good solid shield.

During session I often talk with people about their energy levels. Many people complain about feeling drained at work or around a certain individual. Some people struggle with sleeping at night or being in certain areas of their house even. And I often find it is because of a lack of protection. It’s extremely important to be protected energetically.

The importance of surrounding yourself with energetic protection is the utmost! Our energy is like a glowing, swirling mass of beautiful golden light. It is magnetic, brilliant and sparkling. To quote Gollum, it is, “The precious!” Your energetic field, some may call it your aura, your life force, it is the conglomeration of everything that you are and if you aren’t protecting it you are allowing any and everyone/ thing to have access to it.

What I like to do, which is very simple, is to visualize a white light like a waterfall falling from the sky, flowing around me, forming a glowing shield of bright, white, fiery light around me. I instill in this image the intention that no harm can cross this shield. I also like to visualize mirrored sphere surrounding that white light, reflecting outward. And I put the intention that all negative and harmful energies be deflected from me.

I often call on protection when I feel really in need. No matter what your spiritual or religious background is you may call on Spirit to guide and protect you. You can even call on a specific energy by name. Such as an angel, deity, master or saint. I like to call on Archangel Michael because his energy is intense, vibrant, loving and extremely powerful. I know if he is around nothing is coming my way. I have a personal connection to him and it makes me feel even safer to call on him and his band of helpers.

I see Michael as this tall, beautiful, dark headed man… with a chiseled jaw and sturdy figure. His eyes burn with devotion and authority and his gestures are gentle and graceful. He carries with him a fiery sword that wards off and cuts through all negativity and harm. I ask him to stand near me surrounding me in protection and I always know he is there. Please explore… pull from what feels right to you. If you feel an affinity with a particular entity then ask them to protect you.

You can also recite a prayer or chant. Even wear a few protective talismans or stones. Use whatever invokes a sense of protection and security around you. Be mindful that whenever you are in crowded places especially you are more vulnerable to others latching onto your energy. So you may wish to have a ritual of sorts to do often or on the spot if needed.

If you aren’t psychically protected what you can experience is a feeling of being drained, angry, anxious, depressed, physically sick and spaced out. Basically it is the affect of either people pulling at your energy and draining it, or you taking on the energy of other people; you either become victim to a psychic vampire (someone who sucks away your essence) or you pick up empathetic impressions (you take on the emotions/ mental state of someone else). White light helps to avoid this.

Even if you think this sounds too esoteric or too mystical magical… try it. See what happens if you just take a few minutes to visualize white light around you. Try it before taking the bus to work, or before going into a stressful meeting or entering a busy coffee shop. See how you feel afterwards. I promise it will help.

I hope these techniques offer something for your spiritual practice! Please, let me know if you have any other questions.
