The Importance of Cleansing
When I say cleansing, I am not talking about your house or teeth. I am referring to a spiritual cleanse, to clean energy. Energy tends to build up on things, both good and bad and needs to be cleared. Spiritual cleansing is really important to self-care as well as the care of your belongings. And after doing it, you will feel refreshed and amazing.
It is important to remember that your items, such as crystals, or anything really, will also gather energy and need to be cleansed. Another thing to remember is that cleansing will not keep good energy. If you want to add good energy, you need to charge. Cleansing simply put, means getting rid of all energy good and bad.
Cleansing can be done using plants, smoke, the 4 elements, and intention. Intention is the most important part of any spiritual practice, and cleansing is no different. There is no right or wrong way to set intent. But focus on what you are cleansing, and with a sense of respect, focus on what you want the cleansing to do. As you are thinking about that, light some incense, or sage and wave it around what you wish to clear off energy. There are many other ways to cleanse but that is the simplest. It is recommended that cleansing is followed by charging. Remember that there is no right way to cleanse as long as the intent is there, you have done it correctly.
