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

Spiritual cleansing baths are among the most powerful and effective forms of clearing negative energy from your aura. I suggest a spiritual cleansing bath at least once a week to help things stay fresh and vibrant.

Recently, I was asked a very good question, how do you take a spiritual bath if you only have a shower?

I have a few suggestions for those of you who don’t have a shower, or don’t enjoy soaking in the bathtub.

White Light Waterfall

An easy method of spiritual cleansing in the shower is to visualize white light falling from the shower head with the water. Close your eyes as you feel the warm water soothing you, see the light begin to glow vibrant, golden white, as it washes over you it lifts the debris and heavy energy from your aura. This is an effective method that you can practice every morning when you shower!

Crystal Cleansing

I am a big believer in crystals! They are wonderful tools for moving, shifting, attracting, and banishing energies. I’ve written before about the psychic vacuum… this is when you use an amethyst crystal to absorb negative energy in a room or from your aura. You can adapt this method for the shower.

Find a nice sized crystal that fits comfortably in your hand. While you are showering begin to rub it across your body, or just an inch over it, as if you are washing with a bar of soap. Visualize the crystal absorbing the negative energy that has accumulated in your aura. My favorite crystals to use are: clear quartz, amethyst, and citrine.

Make sure you place the crystal in a bowl of sea salt after each use!

Herbal Sachets

I love using herbs and other minerals my spiritual cleansing baths. You can adapt most of these by using a sachet. In a small muslin sachet (the kind used for tea) place a handful of herbs that are good for cleansing (or other energetic properties you want to infuse your aura with). Good choices are… sage, cedar, rosemary, lavender, or hyssop (Make sure that you aren’t allergic!). You can also fill the sachet with white rice, sea salt, garlic, or crystals.

To use the sachet rub it over your body, again, like a bar of soap while you shower. Let the warm water infuse the herbs within to release their properties. Most sachets can be used a few times. Re-place as needed. You can use tea bags in much the same way if you have an appropriate herbal mixture.

Miscellaneous

Here are a few other methods you can use.

If you don’t have time for a cleansing bath, and aren’t interested in a shower, then you can also fill the sink with warm water and a few drops of essential oil (Lavender, Tea Tree, Sage, Citrus) or vinegar. Use the water to wash your face, hands, and feet. Use a fresh washcloth and towel to dry off.

Make a sachet over some of the above ingredients. Place the sachet in a large mixing bowl. Pour boiling water over the sachet, as if you were making a nice cup of tea. With a towel or scarf cover your head and the bowl to allow the steam to wash over your face (just like a traditional steam facial).

Fill a spray bottle with fresh spring water and a fresh drops of essential oil (any of the ones mentioned above). Or make a pungent herbal tea to fill the spray bottle. After you’ve showered, spray your body down with the mixture. This will freshen the aura!

I hope you enjoy these methods!

The Gypsy’s Tricks For Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Psychic Armor

Do you feel icky in public? Does your mood instantly change for no reason? Do you ever feel thick clouds hanging heavy over a room? Do you experience thoughts that come from nowhere? How about feeling like someone is in your bubble? Sounds like you need to put on some psychic armor!

The Reality of Energy

There is a never endless storm of energies brewing around you. Energy hangs heavy in the air and floats about, mostly, undetected. People invade your space by trying to intermingle their alien energies with your own. It is easy to be caught in the tangled web of energy, which leads to mood poisoning, energetic cords and attachments. These are all signs of a weakened psychic shield.

The importance of surrounding yourself with energetic protection is the utmost! Your energy is a glowing, swirling mass of beautiful golden light. It is magnetic, brilliant and sparkling. To quote Gollum, it is, “The precious!” Your energetic field is your life force, a conglomeration of everything that you are… and if you aren’t psychically protected, everything you encounter!

Your aura is filled with all the thoughts, feelings and experiences you have. You’ve also collected a number of attachments, and cords in your aura, which eat away at your energy and leave you drained. It’s the equivalent of leaving your wifi unlocked… But WORSE!

You Need Psychic Protection When

If you have difficulty sleeping at night. If you feel foggy at work. If you are drained after spending time with a particular person. If you are drained, angry, anxious, depressed, physically sick and spaced out. If you feel like people are pulling at your energy, thus draining it. Or you are taking on other people’s energy.

You can become a victim to a psychic vampire (someone who sucks away your essence) or pick up empathetic impressions (you take on the emotions/ mental state of someone else).

Protect your energy! Protect your life-force! Protect your precious!

What You Can Do

Surround yourself with a shield of protection! Regardless of how you perceive Divinity, you have access to spiritual protection. You should surround yourself with a beautiful bubble of divine light. Have you had your does of white light today?

If not… try this! Visualize a white light falling from above, like water, encompassing your entire body, from head to toe. See the light surround you in a warm, robust bubble of white fire. As you surround yourself, set the intention that, “Only energies serving my highest good may enter this divine shield”. Nothing can cross this shield!

Take It a Step Further

Visualize a shield of mirrors, reflecting outward, surrounding the bubble of white light. These mirrors will deflect any negativity and harm sent your way. Intended, “All harm and negativity sent toward me shall be deflected”.

If you are feeling particularly vulnerable you can call your angels and spirit guides in. Remember, your guides are most helpful when you ask for them. You can ask for the aid of any angel, deity, master or saint that feels right to you.

I often call upon Archangel Michael. He is the divine protector. His energy is intense, vibrant, loving and extremely powerful. He always appears to me as a tall, dark headed man, with a beautiful smile, chiseled jaw and sturdy figure. His eyes burn with devotion and authority. His gestures are gentle, and filled with grace. He wields a fiery sward to ward off harm, and cut through negativity.

When I call Archangel Michael, I ask him and his band of helpers to stand beside me. To protect me from all harm. And to cut away any negative and stray energy which may be affecting me. I know without a doubt that he is there.

Explore what works for you!

Begin with the simple white light exercise. This is the easiest way to protect yourself. You can do it in a flash. Whenever you are feeling invaded and vulnerable, close your eyes, take a deep breath and see the light surround you. Zip yourself in tight!

You may find a certain color, other than white, makes you feel safe and secure. You can surround yourself with colors of any particular intention, along with your white light. You can see yourself surround by a shield of any material. Whatever works for you to create a strong and sturdy energetic shield!

Try it before taking the bus to work, or before going into a stressful meeting or entering a busy coffee shop.

See what happens. It couldn’t hurt to try a little white light!! I promise it will help.

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.

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.

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.

All the best,

Shaheen
