In all this, the practice of meditation is very beneficial for the mind, body and soul. In the bath you could do a light meditation, one that you can do yourself to remove and clear away gunk accumulated through the day or the week. In the shower you can do meditation of where the water is “white light” cleanser cascading over you and through you, aligning your chakras, transforming your outer bodies.
Meditation is about silencing the mind, releasing the chatter. Like with anything, the more you practice, the more you will become proficient. With meditation it is the connection.
Starting with a guided meditation is a helpful first-step for most people. So start with short meditations and then build up. I have had many people say to me that they fall asleep, but this is ok, persevere.
Meditation for protection is a great tool. The way I use meditation is to get to my connection point in my mind, then use it as viewing portal of myself to see what I need cleansing. I can pick up on anything that should not be in or around me and remove it. It is such an effective method, especially for psychic attacks and energy vampires.
After cleansing, the next best thing I find is to do smudge with cleansing herbs.
- White Sage
- Palo Santo “Holy Wood”
There are a number of other herbs you can purchase online for smudges, but these are what are handy for myself and have used for years. I am sure many of you have used a smudged and know that when using, have a bowl with you to catch any bits that can sometimes fall off. We never smudge near curtains or flammable items in the home or on your persons.
Remember, it is the smoke you need to swish around yourself so to release negativity and to cleanse. How long you do it, is up to you and I find it best to say a prayer a few times over as I smudge. Below is a prayer you could say, or you could make up one for your personal needs.
Into this smoke,
I release all energies that no longer serve me
All negativity that surrounds me
And all fears that limits me
As Above, So Below
So Mote it Be
