Protection Rituals: Day 4

Hi! Welcome to our fourth day of cleansing. Hopefully you are already starting to feel relief, clearer and less tired. I know after that foot bath yesterday I felt so energized and sharper. Today is super simple and super easy. Take a bath with your sea salts or take a shower with your sea salt scrub. Its your choice. We are onto the maintenance portion of our cleansing and setting up a daily or weekly routine to not allow any build up of negativity in our energy. We wash away our cares, our worries and our negativity with some water and salt and feel refreshed and brand-new everyday, which is how we were truly meant to feel.

Sometimes maintenance can be difficult for us absent-minded ones. I’ve tried sea salt scrubs once a  week, but I found that I kept forgetting to use it. To combat my forgetfulness, (let’s call it “being in the moment!”), instead I got this daily exfoliating scrub with sea salts in it, but I found that yes it does take the edge off and I feel my energy is much clearer, yet I really felt like it could be better. Call me crazy for demanding my cake and eating it too, but I wanted something so easy and quick as well as the feeling of sparkling clean and clear energy too! I know I know, I’m a glutton! I work with people all day and I’m all up in their energy and things could get hairy for me in that sense. I could walk away from a session feeling totally drained or slimed. At the end of the day I want to wash it all away without having to burn sage, or use my singing bowl all the time. Sometimes I’m just lazy. There I’ve said it. I’m lazy about clearing my own energy after I’ve done it for others all day. So although these methods were working, I deeply longed for a lazy girls answer to this. Then one day, actually recently, the universe answered my silent prayers.

I actually happened across something even better (than some of my tools eeek!) that takes the slime off, the edge off, and cleanses very deeply very quickly.  All in a bar of soap. There is this Dead Sea Soap I found one day while lurking at the Vitamin Shoppe. As soon as I opened it and held it in my hand I could feel an intense clearing taking place, which totally shocked me since it seemed to work faster and better than some other things I had been using. Plus, this soap is so soft on your skin. It has all these oils in it, you wouldn’t even know you were using sea salt.  The first day I used it I could feel my inner light shining again. The second day I used it I felt totally clear on such a deep level. Now I use this every day. Sometimes I use my sea salt scrub then use this soap! If you go out and get the soap please know not its very exfoliating like sea salts normally feel, its more of a soft-clean feeling on your skin, but sparkles you up on the inside so everybody knows you’re really a glittery and magical person.  Ok I’m done raving about this soap. Wait one more. It lasts a long time too!

Why Everyone Needs a Clear Quartz Crystal

I collect crystals like I collect shoes…and purses and coffee mugs.  Its true, when I moved I gave away over 50 pairs of shoes. Why? Well perhaps to make room for all my crystals. If you’ve had a healing session with me you know I will put different crystals over different parts of your body, and if you’ve ever opened your eyes during a session you may have thought I looked like a lunatic as I waved my double terminated clear quartz over certain parts of your body and auric field as I pulled random things that definitely should not be there from your energy. I make faces too as I see what is coming out of your body, so hopefully you kept your eyes closed!

Why do I always use crystals? Well they make life easier and it can take the healing deeper. I’m all about getting more out of one session and clearing and re-energizing your body to the maximum in a session. For example, I can just put a rose quartz on your heart chakra or in your hands, do a couple things to awaken the energy, and the healing begins on its own. If you love the glorious nature of crystals I’m sure you’ve tried this yourself too, and know what a powerful healing tool they can be.

Why do you need your very own quartz crystal? So many reasons, its aesthetically pleasing, healing and protective, and a powerful transmitter of energy, but the main one is that it is like this amazing little helper carrying out your wishes even when you are not focused on it. You just give it a job and it does it, all day, every day. How awesome is that? All you have to do is program it, clear it every so often, then re-strengthen its program every so often. Pretty easy right? You can have it do all kinds of things such as, asking for protection, healing your body, helping you with confidence, clearing up trapped emotions, losing weight, building strength, finding a relationship, helping your current relationship – pretty much anything you can think up it’ll help you do.

  • Get yourself a beautiful piece of clear quartz. You can get smokey quartz or rose quartz or other types, but I suggest clear quartz for this since they are clear and don’t necessarily have too much specific properties on their own. For example, smokey quartz is great for clearing away energy. I tend to use this in a finely pointed version to do psychic surgeries and clear away negative energy at the same time. So choose one that meets the needs of what you want it to do for you.
  • Cleanse your crystal. You can use Reiki symbols to clear it, bury it in a dry bowl of sea salt,  put it in a bag and bury it in the sand or soil for a few days, leave it to cleanse under the sunlight or moonlight, or clear it with your mind or your own healing abilities.
  • Sit with your crystal, clear your mind and meditate for a few minutes so you are in a scared space and very present with your crystal. Ask it to carry out your wishes for you. Talk to it as if you know its hearing you and there for you. Send it love and gratitude. Close the session and put it in a space where you can see it everyday.

That’s it, really easy right? Every so often, give the crystal thanks, give it a clearing, and ask it to carry out its function again or give it a little reminder. Now you have this amazing little helper that is there for you 24/7 and assisting you along your path.

A couple side notes – if your crystal chips or breaks, that is the intensity of the negative energy it absorbed for you. Also, its important to keep it clear so that it can do its job effectively. If you already have a quartz and its not programmed to do a job, it could just be absorbing negative energies or may have already been programmed along the way, meaning before you got your hands on it. If this is the case its important to at least clear it since its been long overdue!

Enjoy your Quartz!
