We’ve taught you a bit about auras, but one other important thing to note about the energy surrounding you is that auras are like magnets. They are always picking up vibrational energies that are floating around, and they do so everywhere we go. That’s why it’s super essential to cleanse our auras freeing them of foreign vibrations and negative energies, especially if you are a particularly empathetic, intuitive person who picks up on other people’s energies. Luckily, it’s quite a simple process, and there are many ways to do it.
Discover six ways to cleanse your aura:
- Visualize Your Aura
Go sit in a quiet, distraction-free zone in your house. Stay seated comfortably in a position you can relax in for about 15 minutes doing some de-stressing breathing exercises. Be conscious of what you’re doing, and be aware of your inhale and exhale movements. You can even meditate for a bit. Once you find yourself beginning to totally relax, form a white light in your mind and have it surround you. Allow it to flow throughout you, from the tips of your toes to the top of your head, and visualize it moving up and down your back near your spine. If you get distracted or thrown off, you can get yourself back on track by revisualizing the white light and controlling your breathing.
- Discard Your Negative Energy
We’ve all been around a poop. You know, a person who is completely negative, always has something bad to say about any given topic, and generally has a big frowny face on more than a smiley one. This person affects more than just themselves, though; she’s distributing negative energy to you whenever you’re around her. Thus, your aura will get dimmer. One way to protect yourself is to make sure you surround yourself with more positive people than negative ones. Cut out the ones that are negative, once you figure it out. Find positive people who think like you, who always have a smile to offer, and who have kind souls. These are the people that can help offset the negativity collecting in your aura.
- Cleanse Your Own Negative Thoughts
Still have negative energy wafting around? You might have to look inwardlyand make sure you aren’t the poop in your life! Start paying attention to your thoughts. Are there a lot of negative ones? Take a look at them. Are they untrue, delusional, or paranoid? All the more reason to chuck them out. Focus on the bright side of things; it really does help! If you are having a really bad day, it’s okay to express your bad feelings, but don’t wallow in that place. Make your day a good one by treating yourself to your favorite tea. Play your favorite song of the moment. Find a friend to hang out with. If you notice that a negative thought is trying to creep in, confront it with a positive one. If you keep practicing this, you will be able to conquer the effects of negative thinking.
- Create a Protection Bubble
This is the most commonly practiced ways of protecting the aura. Practitioners praise it as a beautiful way to connect them to the Divine, and when it’s done in the mornings, it’s a defining positive note for the start of their days.
Here’s how you do it. Imagine white light coming down from the Divine, God, the Universe, whatever your higher power is. Connect this light to the crown of your head, and then let it spill out over you and down under your feet. You are now surrounded by a white light bubble. White is pure and thus, highly protective. It is also full of love from our Divine. Now that your bubble is around you, you are protected from any negative energy coming inside your bubble.
You can now change the color if you’d like to change the protection and power. You can also add mirrors to reflect away any negative energy if you are going somewhere you know will have negative energy or if it will have a large group of people.
- Get Energy Healings
Sometimes you need to get your energies realigned, and an energy healing will clear any blockages you might have. Healers can also check for negative entities or emotional cords that may need to be cut. Don’t underestimate the power of these energy checkups, and they can impact your energy tremendously! You might find your mood swings, imbalanced emotions, or connections you can’t seem to get rid of are all fixed once your energy is realigned, and thus help you be at your best to protect your energy.
- Smudge Your Aura Regularly
Smudging is a Native American practice using white sage to cleanse any negative energy. It’s similar to the house cleaning ritual we showed you in regards to Feng Shui. You can cleanse your house, people, and things. We recommend doing it after you’ve had a lot of people in your home, or after you’ve had a lot of energy drained.
Why do we list so many methods? Because it can get boring doing the same thing every day, and everyone’s auras are different. Depending on the color and size of yours, you may respond differently to different methods, so try them all, mix them up, and figure out what works the best for you. Make sure you stay consistent though; bad energies do creep up on us at nearly every moment, so push them out and seize the day!
