Spiritual Cleansing Using an Egg

Spiritual cleansing is the practice of removing and clearing away negative or misaligned energies from the Aura or energy bodies. We are multifaceted beings composed of body, mind, heart, and spirit. Through daily living we encounter numerous types, textures and frequencies of energy. From simple thought forms, waves of mood and emotions, energy imprints and entities. Just as you accumulate dirt, sweat and physical residue, you also accumulate the energetic equivalent. So spiritual cleansing is essential!

Read an Introduction to Spiritual Cleansing and Protection. 

Spiritual Cleansing is a Practice

I want to be clear that spiritual cleansing is a practice, not something you do once and then forget about it. You take a bath daily; you should practice energetic hygiene daily. In fact, a common thing I hear from those seeking spiritual cleansing is that they feel stuck, blocked, crossed, lethargic or even cursed. Often this is the result of accumulating so much misaligned energy that it snowballs into a whole streak of “bad luck”.

There are rare instances when a person is “cursed” or entangled in some energetic web sent by another person intentionally or unintentionally. Sometimes these situations are connected to an entity or spirit being. But this is very rare, and usually something that can be avoided with a daily practice of energetic clearing and shielding.

The Egg as a Tool for Spiritual Cleansing

The use of an egg in spiritual cleansing is rooted in many ancient traditions. It is common in Mesoamerican and Mexican folk practices of “Limpia” or cleansing. And it is very common in Appalachian Folk Healing.

The egg has long been regarded as a symbol of life and growth. Curanderos, Shamans and Folk Healers alike use this energetic technology to literally absorb stuck energy. In this way the egg is a special container that takes on life and energy, when directed specifically it acts like a vacuum absorbing whatever isn’t necessary or vital.

Though there are a billion ways to perform spiritual cleaning, the egg cleansing is a stand out method. Across time and tradition the egg cleansing ceremony has been performed and that is a testament itself to the validity of this energetic tool.

I personally cherish the egg cleansing. For years I have used the egg cleansing for family members, clients, pets and myself. Time after time I’ve seen astonishing results from using this method, and I know that countless others have as well.

One particular story that always comes to mind when I share this technique is the time my family adopted a malnourished puppy. She was a very small mastiff that had been fed a diet of rice. Needless to say she had a lot of health issues. The bones in her legs had grown faster than her ligaments, which caused her to walk on her joints, rather than her paws.

One night I performed the egg cleansing on her to help mitigate the situation. The next morning I woke up to find her walking on her paws. Her ligaments had stretched so she could walk normally. I was astounded that the healing work happened so quickly.

There is no guarantee that cleansing with an egg will result in such quick and profound results. But I’ve seen pretty miraculous things happen… so it’s worth doing. Regardless, always approach this, and all other energetic techniques, as a compliment to traditional medicine. This is not a replacement!

Performing an egg cleansing is very simple. You can approach it from a spiritual or religious perspective, or simple understand that this is a way of transferring energy. You are basically sweeping over the body with the egg removing the energetic debris held in the body and aura. The sponge like prosperities of the egg absorbs and traps misaligned energies so that they can be discarded.

Common Reasons to Perform an Egg Cleansing:

  • Daily and general energetic hygiene.
  • After a break-up, trauma or heavy emotional drain.
  • When dealing with mental and emotional blocks.
  • Experiencing lethargy, energy drain, nightmares or insomnia.
  • Battling some kind of illness.
  • Haunting or spirit attachment.
  • When negative influences are apparent cursing, crossing, slander, gossip or jealousy.
  • When feeling stuck.
  • Soul loss.

Again, this is not a replacement for any form of traditional medical treatment. Use this as a compliment. You and only you are responsible for your wellbeing.

How to Perform an Egg Cleansing on Yourself:

Here is a simple ceremony to perform an egg cleansing on yourself.

You will need:

  • A fresh uncooked egg.
  • A clear glass of fresh water.
  • Some type of incense (frankincense or cedar works well).
  • Protection oil (like bergamot, pine, sandalwood or vetiver).

Step by step instructions: 

  1. Wash the egg by running it under a faucet and imagine that the egg is being cleared of any lingering energies.
  2. Find a private place where you can perform your cleansing work.
  3. Light your incense. Say a prayer or affirmation asking for your guides, guardians, ancestors and angels to be with you. Ask for the assistance of whatever form of Divinity feels appropriate for you.
  4. Pass the egg through the incense smoke while praying that this be a tool for spiritual cleansing to restore your to your highest expression of good.
  5. Hold the egg in your palms and imagine it being blessed or intend that it is a tool of energetic clearing. Think of this as you asking that the egg work to remove all negative or misaligned energies from your body, mind, heart and spirit.
  6. Relax, breath and become present. Hold the egg in your dominant hand. You can make contact with your body or hold the egg a few inches above.
  7. Begin at your head focusing on the crown. Moving downward to your forehead, eyes, lips, and base of head, throat and shoulders.
  8. Move down each arm, touching the palms and then back up, switching hands so you can work the opposite arm.
  9. The sternum, heart, down the stomach focusing on solar plexus, naval, small of the back, reproductive organs, and then down each leg touching the soles of the feet.
  10. You can return to any specific areas of concern. Places where you can pinpoint pain, illness, tension or any other issues.
  11. Now crack the egg in the glass of water and set the shells aside to be thrown away.
  12. Use your protective oil (make sure to dilute in a carrier oil like olive oil) to seal the aura by placing a few drops in your palms. Rub your palms together to warm the oil until the scent becomes strong. Ask for protection from all negative, intrusive or misaligned energies and rub your palms from the soles of your feet, up your body, palms, throat, until you get back to the crown of your head.
  13. Thank your guides and the Divine for their aid.

After the Egg Cleaning

  • You can read the egg. Look at the egg yoke suspended in the glass of water to see if there are any signs, anomalies (like blood or objects) or other indicators of the energies removed during your cleansing.
  • After reading the egg dump the glass of water in the toilet and flush it! If you decide not to read the egg the flush immediately, or discard the egg without breaking it. Make sure to flush the egg yoke only, or throw the whole egg into a running stream, a trash can offer your property.
  • You can take a cleansing bath, work a protection candle or pray for added results.
  • If your cleansing results weren’t successful or you still feel blocked repeat the process again for a series of 3 days or 9 days.

A Few Extra Tips for Egg Cleansing 

  • Hold the egg at the base of the head, where the skull and the spine meet. This is a very receptive area so energy tends to enter and collect here. This will help remove any strong attachments.
  • Think of the egg as you would a sage smudge and “sweep” through the aura.
  • Sleep with an egg under your bed, either in a cup of water, or in a bowl of sand. The egg will absorb negative energy from your aura, and the room while you sleep. This can help with nightmares as well. Dispose daily.
  • Much like tea leaf reading you can break the egg into a bowl of water after you’ve done the initial cleansing and look at the yoke. Make sure to let the egg yoke settle in the water. If you are skilled at this you can determine how the cleansing fared by the shapes that are formed.
    • Bubbles and globs mean the energy was absorbed. This is typical.
    • Strings can mean that a more deliberate energy was pulled from the aura.
    • Black dots, or blood mean that something major was pulled from the aura. Or illness was removed. Repeat the process again.
    • If the egg cracks. Repeat the process, and focus on the area of the body where the egg cracked.
    • DO NOT GET STUCK ON THIS! All that matters is the act of rubbing the egg over your body and disposing of it…Do the technique again if you feel you need more results.

I hope these techniques offer something for your spiritual practice!

Use at your own risk! You are responsible for your own wellbeing. This is not a replacement for medical treatment.

    • Shaheen Miro on January 9, 2015 at 2:25 am

      Jackie,

      I want to clarify. When you say nothing happened after the cleansing… do you mean your cleansing didn’t work? Or do you mean nothing appeared in the egg?

      Thank you.

      • Liz on February 19, 2019 at 10:33 am

    thank you

    • Shaheen Miro on January 9, 2015 at 10:19 am

      Hello Jackie,

      No worries about the time difference. When doing any type of cleansing it may not be an instant thing. Especially if you are removing layers and layers of energy.

      I would repeat the process a few times. Traditionally you perform a spiritual cleansing for 3, 7, 9 or 13 days in a row. Try this and see how things turn out.

      It doesn’t sound like you are doing any thing “wrong”. This method is very simple, as long as you stay very intent on what you are doing. I would make sure as you go through the process you say some type of prayer, or affirmation that lines up with your intention.

      What appeared in the egg when you cracked them open? Bubbles, lines, colors, shapes, anything?

      Sometimes it is insightful to crack the egg and let it dry. Then read the shapes that have formed in the dried egg yoke.

      • Xander on February 3, 2016 at 5:40 pm

    after the cleansing process iimmedily dispose it must i do first the reading and then flush it .i didnt check for and marks
    thank you for understanding please walk with me through the cleansing process

    • Shaheen Miro on January 9, 2015 at 3:27 pm

      Hello Jackie.

      If you are doing the cleansing, and you want to check the egg for possible signs then you need to crack the egg open first, check for any signs, and then dispose of it.

      When doing the cleansing you basically want to rub the egg over your entire body, as you would with a bar of soap… visualize the negative energy/attachments being absorbed from your aura, and into the egg. Say a prayer while doing this, or some type of affirmation.

      When finished, crack the egg open into a small bowl and look for signs. Then dispose of it.

      Repeat this for 3,7,9, or 13 days. See what results come after.

      Also, you can use this technique with the other spiritual cleansing methods. Don’t be afraid to try more than one.

      All the best,
      Shaheen

  7. jackie on January 10, 2015 at 7:19 am

    i do it again the egg was so messing the egg smell so bad.the was break the part of the shield at the bottom.maybe the was not rigtht thanks for yout respond

    • Shaheen Miro on January 10, 2015 at 4:39 pm

      Jackie, when performing the cleansing you want to make sure the egg does not break. And also make sure it is a fresh egg. If the egg cracks and smells during the cleaning then it may be a sign that some heavy energy is present I your aura and I would repeat the process.

    i try again but see nothing only a few bubbles what did i wrong please help.nothing is change
    wait for answer

    • Shaheen Miro on January 26, 2015 at 12:35 pm

      The process of doing the cleansing with an egg is dependent on what you see afterwards. That is more a divinatory system to give you some ideas about the energy at work around you. If you see nothing in the yoke, then there isn’t any peculiar energy lingering around you. If you feel that nothing has changed, I would repeat the process for a series of days. Once a day for 3, 7, 9 or 13 days. I hope that helps!

      • Tita on January 28, 2015 at 3:08 pm

        I’m just wondering if you could read the egg if I took a picture after ? I’ve never done it before?

        • Shaheen Miro on February 2, 2015 at 5:37 pm

          Hello Tita, Yes, I actually interpret egg yokes for people. It is a service I offer. You can find a link for it at the bottom of the Limpa with an Egg page.

    […] Spiritual cleansing, or “Limpia” with an egg is an old, and powerful form of spiritual cleansing. It is very popular in Latin folk-magic, but has its roots in many cultures. You can read more about self-cleansing with an egg, here! […]

  11. Vee on February 16, 2015 at 12:30 am

    I have heard that the egg needs to be fertilized or with a chick for the best results. Is this something you have heard or recommend? Or do the eggs just come from your local grocery store? Also does it matter if it’s a brown or white egg?

    • Shaheen Miro on February 16, 2015 at 5:10 pm

      Hello Vee, Some traditions do say that you should use a fertilized egg, etc. But this to me doesn’t make sense because it would absolutely show traces of blood, etc. Seems more like a scare tactic. The egg that you use in a cleansing can be either brown, or white. Though I prefer to use a white egg. It can be from the local grocery store… get free range and organic. I like to use fresh eggs from the farm. I try to keep people from getting stuck on the “superstitious” aspects of these techniques.

  12. lay on February 25, 2015 at 8:59 pm

    i got this done for me before 2 times one time is looked like black snakes the next time it was like bubbles with red dots it looked like something were not shower if it was bubbles. can you tell me what happen both times

    • Shaheen Miro on March 2, 2015 at 9:58 pm

      Without seeing photographs I am unable to give you any insight. I would suggest doing the cleansing again if you do not feel satisfied with the results. All the best, Shaheen

  13. Cathy on March 22, 2015 at 11:51 pm

    Hello,

    So, I perform the egg cleansing just by saying a prayer about the person who I want to be cleansed, myself, and then crack the egg in a glass of water. When I crack the egg, I only pour out the egg white. The results were very disturbing and I’d like to know what they mean. White clouds rose up to the surface of the water and formed what looked like a golfball. The rest of the water was completely filled with bubbles and white strings. If you could give me any input on the interpretation, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you.

    • Shaheen Miro on March 25, 2015 at 10:16 pm

      Cathy, you can pour the whole egg into the water. I would let it settle for a few minutes. Maybe even while you take a spiritual cleansing bath.

  14. Jessica on March 27, 2015 at 10:39 pm

    I did a cleansing on my daughter and on the yolk park it had a small medium size circle around it kinda like an eye do you know what that means ???

    • Jessica on March 27, 2015 at 10:40 pm

      In the middle bottom of the yolk sack

    • Shaheen Miro on March 29, 2015 at 6:24 pm

      Jessica, I cannot comment on the egg’s meaning without seeing it. If you perform the cleansing again you can book an interpretation session if you like. All the best, Shaheen

  15. DIANA. Aguilera on March 31, 2015 at 7:34 pm

    I have a question i haven’t been the same for awhile i was fine for along time then my boyfriend came in December and i was fine then i got sick and people tell me mean comments to and im a good person never did nothing wrong to no one to hate me and i feel someone has done a spiritual on me

    • Shaheen Miro on April 1, 2015 at 12:12 am

      Diana. I am sorry to hear you are dealing with such heavy energy. Have you tried any of the spiritual cleansing techniques?

  16. Tanya on April 11, 2015 at 11:33 pm

    I have a few questions. First, does the lemon juice have to be fresh or can it be from the bottle? Second, if we want to break the egg to look at it, are we supposed to break it in the same bowl of salt water & lemon juice or a different bowl of regular water? Last, does the type of water make a difference (i.e. filtered, bottle, tap etc)? I ask because our water is reverse osmosis so we use filtered water with salted system and wasn’t sure if something like that would affect the reading. Thanks

    • Shaheen Miro on April 12, 2015 at 11:26 pm

      Hello! The lemon juice is better if it is fresh. The egg should be broken into a separate bowl of regular tap water. For the bath it is nice to use spring water. Or something very fresh.

  17. sally on May 1, 2015 at 5:12 am

    Sorry to bother you, i have a question I did an egg cleansing and then put it in glass of water and I was tol to put the glass of water with egg under my bed over night and throw the egg the next day in toilet flushed well I forgot to throw the glass of water with the egg the next I left it under my bed for 2 or 3 days is it still ok or do I need to do another cleansing now, please respond thank you so much, I appreciate your wife

  18. agony on May 29, 2015 at 6:27 am

    When I did my cleansing the next day when I was reading my egg I noticed my glass was cracked my egg was really bad had a bad smell no blood a lot of lil white bubbles murky water and webs I wanted to know that it means if the glass cracks? thanx much.

    • Shaheen Miro on June 1, 2015 at 10:34 pm

      The glass cracking would be a major influx of energy. It would be beneficial to do another session, or a series of cleansing sessions.

      • agony2015phx on June 3, 2015 at 6:09 pm

        I thought so, so would it best best if I did the cleansing naked?cause I heard that’s the best way to do a cleansing and also thank u very much.

        • Shaheen Miro on June 3, 2015 at 11:46 pm

          You can do a cleansing however you feel comfortable. Though being nude does seem to work better in my experience. I often do cleanings before taking a shower/bath.

  19. Shannon on June 4, 2015 at 7:22 pm

    Hi I have done this technique .
    I purchased a white egg only ,then I brought it home and wash it ,place it on a white circle plate , then i left it there for a while , and thought of all the bad energies to be taken away from me.
    I had a shower to cleanse my body , i place a cup of water on the white circle plate ,then pick up the egg , then I rubbed the egg , all over my crown of my head and rubb it everywhere on my body from top to toe and underneath .
    When I was ready I cracked the egg into the glass of water gently,
    Then then placed the plate with the glass of water , with egg in it. Under my bed , and woke up tosmallning to find what I have seen .
    I am pretty sure it worked as I have a straen of clear yolk running around the outside and swiggels inbetween , and long stands lifting up to the top of glass

    • Shaheen Miro on June 5, 2015 at 12:41 am

      It sounds like your cleansing worked well. It is something that I like to repeat a few times to make sure everything is really cleansed, and blocks are removed. If you want me to interpret your egg after the cleansing you can purchase an interpretation session and email me pictures. All the best!

    Hello I got it right the egg I used was bubbly and stringy like there’s strings on top of water what does this mean?

  22. claudia on July 16, 2015 at 7:55 pm

    Hi
    Someone told me to do the egg cleanse only on Tuesdays and Thursdays, a YouTube video said Tuesdays and Fridays before midnight. I see that you said you can do it for three days, etc. Does it really matter? Why would someone say it had to be on certain days.
    Thanks!

    • Shaheen Miro on July 20, 2015 at 10:24 pm

      Hello. The egg cleansing can be done whenever. You can pick certain days and times based on planetary energies, but that is not necessary for a general cleansing.

  23. Donald Rodriguez on August 4, 2015 at 10:40 am

    I’m broke all the time I’ve done limpias and they work for a day or two but it always comes back I’m depressed all the time nothing seems to work out it’s like there is something that follows me it seems to jump from me to my son I’ve done us both at the same time and a day or two later it’s back in the water I see bubbles packed like a dozen of eggs on top of the water I get so depressed I sleep a lot if you have any advice please contact me I feel so alone with no one to help.

    • Shaheen Miro on August 5, 2015 at 12:50 am

      When doing spiritual cleansing you are removing the negative energy. You must also fill that space with positive vibrations… thought forms, energies from crystals and botanicals, etc. And then seal the aura to keep things at bay. Trying the egg limpia, and then anointing yourself with florida water can be very helpful.

  24. Abdul wahab sundiata on August 21, 2015 at 8:16 pm

    I have done it for a number of times n i have good resalt,but how do i protect mysalf with the egg?I use to get 1/4 of gold at my work place but after the process i had a pound of good.But protection!

    • Shaheen Miro on August 21, 2015 at 8:27 pm

      Hello Abdul, The egg is not meant to be used for protection. Think of the egg as a vacuum. It absorbs negative energy, but it does not keep it at bag. You can protect yourself with crystals, oils and visualization. If you would like to set up a consultation we can create a unique practice for you to protect yourself.

  25. nathaly on August 23, 2015 at 9:42 am

    Hi. I did the egg cleanse tonight and i was wondering do i crack the egg into the glass of water and then put it under my bed for the night or do i just get rid of it right after the cleansing. Thanks if can get back to me.

    • Shaheen Miro on October 4, 2015 at 10:28 pm

      Hello. You crack the egg into the cup after the cleansing. So I would do this in the morning after you sleep.

  27. glenda on October 4, 2015 at 6:43 pm

    I tried the egg cleanse I saw a few bubbles and some long white lines, but I didn’t throw the egg in a drain or flush it I just throw it in the back of my yard would it make a difference, and I didn’t throw the salt water and the lemon juice either

    • Shaheen Miro on October 4, 2015 at 10:29 pm

      Hello Glenda. The egg needs to be flushed, or thrown off of your property. This removes the energy held in the egg from your life. If you throw it on your property then you are essential planting that negative “seed” back into your life.

  28. glenda on October 5, 2015 at 3:49 pm

    So if I do it again and disposed it the right way will it help to remove the negative from the one I had the thrown on the property?

    • Shaheen Miro on October 6, 2015 at 12:04 am

      I would repeat the process disposing of it the proper way. Do it a few days in a row.

  29. glenda on October 6, 2015 at 1:09 pm

    Should you used the same egg or a different one every day

  30. A on October 29, 2015 at 3:22 pm

    Hi,

    For the bath do I crack the egg in the water or just have it with me in the water? Also, what type of water do I have to use to crack the egg into and bath in?

    • Shaheen Miro on November 1, 2015 at 10:49 pm

      Hello Anna, You can add the egg to your bath (not cracked) then you can toss it out after, or crack it into a clear glass of fresh tap water. You can look for any signs in the yoke. This is just an added step!

  31. Anna on October 29, 2015 at 6:44 pm

    Hello…do I crack the egg in the bath or keep it whole while bathing in it? Also, can I do this 13 times in a row or it has to be different days?

    • Shaheen Miro on November 1, 2015 at 10:49 pm

      You do the bath 13 days in a row at the same time each day.

  32. Jess on October 30, 2015 at 4:10 pm

      Hello Jess, I offer a service interpreting eggs cleanings. You can find the link at the bottom of this article to pay for it. Send the pictures to me and I will give you my insight. That is the only way I can tell you what it might mean. Thanks

    Do you know of the other method of putting an egg in a glass of water under the bed for nine nights? Any experience?

    • Shaheen Miro on November 4, 2015 at 5:52 pm

      Hello Mosee, You can put the egg under your bed in a glass of water, without breaking the egg. And in the morning you would dispose of the egg off of your property. or break it into the toilet and flush it down. You can do this for 3, 7, 9 or 13 days in a row. Using a new egg each time.

  34. Kelly on November 6, 2015 at 11:29 am

    A spiritualist performed an egg cleansing on me yesterday. Firstly i was told to rub the egg over my entire body. He then placed the egg in cloth and while praying he rubbed the egg all over me then held it under my ribs and belly and asked me to break it. The egg was really hard to break, it was like trying break a metal ball. I managed to eventually break the egg the messy contents was in the cloth. I could feel it. The sharmon/spiritualist opened the cloth in front of me, it did not leave my sight and i could not believe still can’t that from the yoke he pulled out rope with eight knots in it. He then cleansed my hands with salt and told me that it was 8 times i had been hurt by someone. Unreal and feel heaps better overall, lighter not so heavy inside.

      Hello Kelly, Thank you for sharing this experience. It is very fascinating to hear about others success with the egg cleansing. I do believe these things can happen, but I always urge people to make sure they are working with a trust worthy practitioner.

    Hello
    What does it mean if the egg white color is bright yellow?

    • Shaheen Miro on November 20, 2015 at 1:44 am

      Hello, I would have to see the egg to offer a valid interpretation.

    To seal the aura, how much sandalwood to olive oil should be used? 1:1? After getting the correct amount I t should be rubbed all over the body then leave it or can it be washed away after rubbing it all over the body?

    • Shaheen Miro on December 10, 2015 at 10:23 am

      I would do 12-15 drops in a 1 ounce of oil. That is a good mix, and a good amount to use. Unless you have sensitive skin. Always check. You can rub it all over your whole body like you would lotion. or place on the pulse points… wrist, behind the knees, base of neck and temples.

        My husband had some work done and when the lay cracked the egg there was an albino baby snake and hair is this possible? Or are we being scamed she didn’t ask for more money however but she did say it was rooted in him and would take several cleanings as there are many layers and she said she is not looking for more money.

        • Shaheen Miro on February 2, 2016 at 10:51 am

          Hello. Thank you for relaying your story to me. Is it possible? Yes, when it comes to energy and spiritual phenomenon anything can happen. Is it common? No, it would be very rare for something like this to happen. But I cannot say for certain about this situation. But I hear these stores very, very, very often about people seeing something sinister in their egg, the healer advises that they need another cleansing, and eventually it leads to some form of deceit. My suggestion is to 1. Follow your intuition. Does the person feel right to you? 2. Measure your results. How do you feel after the sessions? 3. Book a session with someone else to get another opinion. In order for me to give you prober advice I would need to book a session with you, and spend the time exploring your energy/situation. Please, let me know if I can help. Shaheen

    My grandmother was from Puerto Rico and did the limpia only in the dark with an egg she had wrapped in a handkerchief. I remember her having the egg at church, putting in the Holy water bowl. I thought she was strange. She also would collect rain water and keep eggs in there. Always worked! It was shown to her by her grandmother who was an islander. Not sure where. So her limpia ritual was old and passed down first hand.

    • Shaheen Miro on February 28, 2016 at 8:37 pm

      I love hearing this powerful stories of people having this tradition passed down to them. It gives so much insight into the process. I am not sure where her grandmother was from, but I assume that there was still a strong Catholics tradition connected to her practice since she used the holy water. I have not heard of it being done only in darkness, but it makes sense as it was often used in sickrooms which were often kept very dim. The handkerchief makes sense too as they are often used in relation to energy work and cleansing. Was the hankerchief white or red? Or just a random color/print?

  40. Mark Rodriguez on March 3, 2016 at 1:15 pm

    What happens if the yoke egg is coverd in white?

    • Shaheen Miro on March 3, 2016 at 6:48 pm

      Hello Mark. I would have to see it to give an accurate description. But I if it is thick, opaque and white, then I would say it means there is a heavy energy veiling you.

  41. Jazmine Castaneda on April 27, 2016 at 12:28 am

    Hello,

    My mother is Mexican and she does limpias on me occassionally. She does not know how to read the egg. A few minutes ago, she was about to finish the limpia and it broke. She put the egg yolk in a clear glass. It had some bubbles and strings. I was teading your article and I wanted to know a more defined meaning of the strings. Thank you.

    • Shaheen Miro on April 27, 2016 at 5:06 pm

      Hello There. Thank you for sharing your experience. I would first suggest doing another cleansing if the egg broke before she broke it intentionally. Strings can mean many things… But basically they are energetic cords that are being pulled out. I would have to see the egg to give a specific reading on your situation. You are welcomed to do another cleansing, photograph the egg in the water, and send me the images for an interpretation. You can find a link in the article to pay for an egg reading.

      • serenamirium on April 29, 2016 at 6:54 pm

        Hello Shaheen I just want to know 2 things first of all is it important to know how to read the egg after a cleansing with it and second i wanted to ask you what other methods out there are good for protection and to avoid bad vibes thank you, i hope to hear from you soon.

        • Shaheen Miro on April 29, 2016 at 6:59 pm

          Hello. To answer your first question… No you do not have to read the egg. That is not a necessary step in the process, and it is often the one that people get the most fixated on. Doing the cleansing is the important part, and then doing the proper work to keep yourself cleansed… And to change your mental/emotional state to match. To answer your second question… There are so many methods for spiritual protection. I have tons of articles on how to cleanse and protect yourself. Find one that works well for you. The most important is to cultivate right relationship with yourself, and the world around you. Making sure to have positive, nourishing and empowering thoughts. And to only interact with people, and situations that build you up. A simple technique I like to use is working with crystals to amplify my intentions. Black tourmaline is a wonderful stone to keep with you. And selenite. Also, I keep a bottle of my aura elixir with me at all times to help lift my aura and keep me in high vibe. You can get a bottle here on my website.

    • Shaheen Miro on April 29, 2016 at 6:06 pm

      No, the egg cleansing is done with the solid egg. The egg is like a vacuum pulling out and holding the negative energy accumulated in your aura. Then the egg is disposed of it release the energy. I hope that helps!
      Shaheen

  43. Aditi on May 24, 2016 at 7:09 am

    Hi. Please, tell me that if we keep an egg under the bed to remove negative energies from the body as well as the room, for how many days do we need to keep it there? and should the egg be just thrown away or to be broken to see the shape of the egg yolk? Awaiting your response. Thanks in advance!

    • Shaheen Miro on May 24, 2016 at 7:56 pm

      Hello, You can place the egg under your bed in a cup. Some people like to fill the cup with water, and pray over it. You can also place the cup on your nightstand. Remove the cup each morning, or leave it for a few days. Your situation and the quality sleep will help you decide. You can just dispose of the egg in the trash… I recommend outside of your home. Don’t fuss with looking at the shapes. Shaheen

  45. Ashley on June 12, 2016 at 11:32 pm

    Hello,
    Thank you so much for this information! I would love to do the cleansing but I have a few questions:

    1. Where can those types of oils be purchased to seel the aura? I’m from a small town and there aren’t very many choices.
    2. Can the cleansing accidentally attract any type of negative spirits or etc? I’m only asking because I get nervous lol and because I don’t want to get into a situation where things may get worse instead of better.

    I really feel like for the last few years there have been forces working against me and I’m hopeful for the outcome of this.

    Thank you in advance!

    • Shaheen Miro on June 12, 2016 at 11:38 pm

      Hello Ashley, and thank you for your comment.

      You can purchase many oils online, or through a natural food store. I also create custom blend oils for people, and would be happy to create a mix and mail it to you.

      When you perform a cleansing I suggest keeping a few things in mind. You are extracting negative energy, and influence from your life and aura. You should be mindful of what created that negative influence… It could be thoughts and emotions, your environment, interaction with other people, or something stronger… Or a combination of all of the above.

      When doing a cleansing make sure you give yourself space to relax, meditate and align yourself with those positive intentions. The added protection of using an oil, crystal, or just repeating an affirmation helps to seal your aura and keep negative energy at bay.

      I cannot comment on your specific situation without doing a session with you, but the above is a general guidelines for most instances. Though there are time when a stronger working is needed, and it might be advisable to seek spiritual help and guidance… Which I am always happy to give.

      Please, let me know if you would like a protection oil, or anything else I can do. Use the contact form to send me a private email.

      All the best,
      Shaheen

    My daughters egg was not able to be read. Once i cracked the egg in th glass it was scrambled. What does that mean pls respond shes only 10 months

    • Shaheen Miro on June 27, 2016 at 5:38 pm

      Hello Imperia. I do not typically read eggs without seeing photos. When you say scrambled do you mean the yoke was already broken up when you cracked the egg? Or do you mean there was a lot of white in the egg? I would suggest doing it again. It could mean there is a lot of negative, or conflicting energy around her. You can find a link to pay for a reading and email me photos so that I can interpret them. And I would suggest doing some cleansing work on yourself, and your home. I hope that helps. Shaheen

      • imperia on June 28, 2016 at 5:18 am

        Yes the egg was alrdy broken up when i cracked the egg. I will send you a picture next time i do her one.. I was told it was because they were doing witchcraft on her so i had to ask.. Thanks for taking the time to reply.

    • Connie Tavera on August 2, 2016 at 11:04 am

      Hi. I was just wondering if you would know what it means if you forget the prayer while doing a cleansing on someone, or yourself? I am a true believer cleansing with an egg but about a week ago I was cleansing my husband and in the middle of the Our Father, my mind just went blank. So I started again, but I wasn’t even sure if I was saying it right.

      • Shaheen Miro on August 2, 2016 at 11:19 am

        Hello Connie, I would safeguard yourself wile doing a cleansing by writing out the prayer and placing it on a table next to you. Typically we would have a few tools laid out to use. But remember, the words are not as important as the intention. But you could have experienced forgetting because you were releasing some major energy that caught you off guard. I hope that helps, Shaheen

  47. Dustin on July 19, 2016 at 6:13 pm

    What do it mean when the egg brakes when I’m cleaning someone before I even finish cleaning the person

    • Shaheen Miro on July 20, 2016 at 9:13 pm

      Depending on the situation, I would assume that the cleansing was successful and it absorbed some heavy energy. I would follow the process with a spiritual cleansing bath for both of you.

  48. Arturo Pichardo on July 24, 2016 at 3:24 am

    What if a snake or powder comes out of the egg? What does that mean

    • Shaheen Miro on July 24, 2016 at 7:14 pm

      Has this happened to you for an egg that you personally bought, and used?

  49. Amy Darlene on July 26, 2016 at 7:50 pm

    I was wondering what it means if the egg cracks in the middle of the limpia. I had it crack on my arm yesterday

    • Shaheen Miro on July 30, 2016 at 11:28 am

      Hello Amy, great question… And one that I get pretty often. If your egg breaks it is usually an indicator that some very heavy energies were removed, and you should dispose of it right then and begin again. I would suggest doing a series of cleansings to help mitigate whatever is energetically ailing you. Please, let me know if you have any other questions. Shaheen

  50. Brenda on August 4, 2016 at 9:07 am

    I did a cleansing on my daughter
    Bubbles , lines & the egg nog looked cooked .. If you can plz give me a respnonse back of what it can mean? Please … Thank you !

    • Shaheen Miro on August 4, 2016 at 6:56 pm

      Hello Brenda. Thank you for contacting me. I hesitate to interpret eggs without seeing photos. But I would read that as some energies were removed… Something heavy and a bit limiting. I do not know the nature of her situation. If she has some phsyical illness, or emotional heaviness happening around her. But this is a good indicator that the energy was extracted. I would repeat the process a few times and do some added spiritual protection. Shaheen

  51. Linda on August 11, 2016 at 11:21 am

    After I cracked the egg in a glass of water can I keep it under my bed to see if anything changes overnight?

    • Shaheen Miro on August 12, 2016 at 12:30 pm

      Hello Linda, I received your egg and will do the reading shortly. You would not crack the egg and then place it under the bed. If you want to place the egg under the bed you should place the whole egg into a glass of water and then place it under or next to the bed. Imagine the egg is a vacuum, and it absorbs negative energy as it is programmed to do. Shaheen

  52. Christie Hernandez on August 18, 2016 at 8:06 pm

    Hi my husband is from Mexico and has been doing the egg cleansing on me because I’ve been very Ill and the doctors can’t find out what is wrong but every time he cleanses me the egg comes out the same when we put it in the glass of water the yolk is covered by the whites of the egg but it’s so cloudy you can’t see through it and looks horrible we don’t know how to read it but it’s the same every time please help.

    • Shaheen Miro on August 25, 2016 at 9:25 pm

      Hello, Thank you for contacting me. I cannot speak on the medicinal issues you are expeicning, but from a spiritual/energetic perspective it seems as though you are caught in a bundle of negative energy. This could be sourced from a number of places. First, you want to remain in a place of love, and uplift meant… It can be difficult, but fear can create more of these negative energies. I suggest doing more than just an egg cleansing. You might try a spiritual cleansing bath, and working with your guides. If you are open to it, Archangle Michael is a powerful entitie to work with for these issues. I would love to set up a private session to look at your situation in more depth so I can offer some suggestions. Shaheen

  53. Linda on August 25, 2016 at 1:08 am

    Hi im linda…i did the egg cleanse and noticed webs in the glass on top of the yoke what does that mean any negative energy?

    • Shaheen Miro on August 25, 2016 at 9:17 pm

      Hello Linda, Thank you for the question. Yes, typically in an egg cleansing we read webs as negative energy that has been wrapped around you being removed. Often times I you will repeat the cleansing until there aren’t any webs, or very little. And continue to do any cleansing and protection work outside of the egg. It doesn’t necessarily mean that there are people working on you or anything… It can literally be that you are caught in a web of negative thinking (which is most often the case). Shaheen

  54. sandra batista on September 3, 2016 at 7:49 pm

    I tried this. When I cracked the egg, there were air bubbles and it fell slowly. The white was mostly clear and fluid, but the yolk looked pale yellow and was hard as though it had been the yolk of a hard boiled egg. (The egg was raw when I started and usually has dark yellow yolk.) Do you know what this means?

    • Shaheen Miro on September 5, 2016 at 5:40 pm

      Hello Sandra, Without seeing the egg I would say… Repeat the process again. It sounds like you have some energy clouding you that could be mental/emotional/spiritual. It doesn’t sound like anything directly sent to you… More your state of being at the moment. I would also do some other cleansing practices and prayer work. Shaheen

      • Jessica on September 21, 2016 at 2:35 am

        I recently did my 2nd limpia… But I had a few pins.. Shooting from the yolk.. Also a big bubble with almost a tornado like form connecting to the yolk.. Also my yolk was cooked.. Also short lines shooting down from the top of the glass And a white dot on yolk.. Is this bad?

        • Shaheen Miro on September 22, 2016 at 2:01 pm

          Hello Jessica. So glad you decided to do an egg cleansing for yourself. It sounds like there was a lot happening in your egg. I cannot read an egg without seeing photographs. But my suggestion is to do another cleansing and see what the results are. Then follow with some protection oil. Shaheen

  55. ria on October 1, 2016 at 10:28 am

    Hi. I’ve placed the egg under the bed twice and in both occasions, the egg cracked and bubbles came out. The first one stink awful lot, (after 7 days under the bed) the second one cracked but didn’t smell (but i noticed on the third day so I took it out immediately) Would you mind if I ask if that’s a bad thing or a good thing? Many thanks

    • Shaheen Miro on October 1, 2016 at 11:12 am

      Hello Ria, Wonderful to hear from you, and thank you for sharing your experience. It sounds like in both cases some heavy energetic blocks were removed. I would repeat the process a few more times, and follow up with a cleansing bath and some protection work. Doing some cleansing throughout the day along with visualization will be very beneficial. You can mist some Aura Elixir around you during the day and before bed as another added measure, and visualize white light surrounding you in protection. Just remember… the eggs job is to remove negative energy so when the egg displays signs of negative energy that is a good thing… your detoxing. Shaheen

      Hello. Can you tell me what method you used to do the cleansing? Was it a fresh egg that you blessed, and passed over your body once and then cracked? or did it sit for a series of days? Traditionally this would mean that something heavy and harmful has been removed.

I woke up I’m the middle of the night happy , praying knowing everything is going to be ok. This morning the egg was cracked in 4 different spots there were brown dots floating. What does this mean?

    • Shaheen Miro on December 9, 2016 at 7:57 pm

      Hello Diana, Typically if the egg cracks at any point during a cleansing session… without you dropping it or doing anything to it. It means that it has pulled some major negative energy, and should be repeated. Shaheen

    Hello and thank you in advance. Ive just done a cleanse and I did have one big bubble and just two other small ones. The big one floated to the top immediately. The thing I am wondering about is the thick halo of white that was right on top of the egg. Could you please tell me, what does that mean?

    • Shaheen Miro on March 20, 2017 at 7:11 am

      Hello Shirley, Thank you for sharing your cleansing experience. I always remind people that the reading part of the cleansing is just an extra layer… the cleansing is the most important part. Because I cannot see the image it is hard to read. But bubbles typically mean success with the working… and maybe some specific attachments that were released. A circle or halo can be a sign of success. Or an attachment that is still present. Depending. Always trust what you feel. If you’re unsure do the cleansing again. A series of 3 cleansing sessions is a wonderful start. Shaheen

  62. Christy on April 23, 2017 at 12:20 am

    Do you have to use the oil for this to work?

    • Shaheen Miro on April 23, 2017 at 1:59 pm

      Hello. There is no exact way to do the cleansing. Just traditional suggestions. However, I highly recommend using something to seal your aura after the cleansing. Think about it like you are cleaning a wound, and you want to bandage it to keep out infection. If you do not have any special blend or essential oil for protection you can simply use Olive Oil like you buy from the store. Put some of the oil in a separate bottle just for this use. Hold it in your hands, near your heart and pray over it. Ask for the light of Spirit to fill it with healing and protective vibrations.
