Everything in the Universe is comprised of energy. The energy in the places you live, work, shop, and socialize can have far-reaching effects on your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. If an argument, divorce, or robbery occurs in a home, and that energy does not get cleared, it can accumulate.
Do you ever feel like you've resolved something but you can still feel the feelings you had before it was resolved? Even with arguments, you might find yourself agreeing that it's over, but still feeling a bit disgruntled about whatever it was that went wrong.
So imagine that your thoughts and feelings exist as energy that might still be with you even when you move on to something else. Kinda like smoke that you can't see anymore, but can still smell or feel in your throat or chest.
And you know the joke people make when they say, "if these walls could talk...?"
Well, I know our homes won't actually tell our stories, but I believe they do live there, and to say a complete goodbye to the year, it might be good to say goodbye to the energy of your experiences during the past year.
How to Get Rid of the Energy of 2018
Many people think of cleaning and decluttering as they make the transition into the new year, and I recommend that, too, if you can. But on top of giving your home a fresh, clean face, you may want to clear its energy.
Out with the old! Here are three ways to use energy clearing to say a final goodbye to 2018...
(1) Fresh Air: Open doors and windows, letting air come in to fill the space with fresh energy as it clears out the old. The first time I ever tried this technique was in a duplex I was renting. Each room was filled with windows and honestly, the room didn't feel the same after I did it.
(2) Aromatherapy: Make an essential oil spray and use it in any area of the house you want to clear. Lemon essential oil is a good choice for clearing negative energy from a room. Here is a link for making your own aromatherapy spray.
(3) Sound Healing: Use a sound bowl, other sound instrument or a recording of one to clear the energy. Sound can be a powerful way to clear energy.
Strike it first and then move the mallet around the bowl in each room you want to clear. I suggest standing in the center, so the sound radiates in every direction.
As you should with each of these techniques or tools, start with the intention of clearing negative energy. Wouldn't hurt to have some specific ones in mind. :)
And after clearing away negative energy, what you're most likely to feel is a sense of lightness. Today, it felt to me like the energy sparkled!
If any, which of these ideas might you try? Have you ever used an energy clearing tool or technique?
See you tomorrow!
