To make it short, we need to cleanse our energy field around us = aura for the same reasons we wash our hands. Juts list 5 things you always wash your hands after or before. I am sure if I ask you why? You would know a reason for each one right away.
That is the same with energy. Everything is energy. We just don't realize that we see or hear it. Think about colors or music. Colors are vibrations. There are certain colors you can't stand and there are some you would wear them all the time, and or if you could, you would bathe in them. And there are periods in your life when you are especially crazy about one specific shade.
It is the same with music or sounds. There are some kinds of music you can never get bored of, they lift up your spirit or calms you down; and there are certain types of music or songs that when you hear them, you want to run. The reason is your energy, your vibes are harmonized with certain colors and sounds; and you are dis-harmonized with others.
When you go to certain places, you step in and want to turn around and leave right instant; and there are places, you never want to leave or you want to visit as often as it is possible. Last example: there are certain people you can't stand regardless everybody talks the highest about them and/or they try everything to make you accept them; and there are others you "fall in love with" at first sight and you feel you have know them forever. You open up for them and there are no walls between you.
Does any of these sound familiar or make sense?
Then let's take the next step. There are energies or beings around us we do not see or hear. We may feel their presence, but we cannot tell what makes us so uplifted / euphoric or more often, awkward or very uncomfortable.
There are many spirits around us who could not pass over, who still hang out on the Earth plane but they are not in a human body any more (they are called earth bound spirits, or people often call them ghosts). There are several types of these entities and there are several reasons why they are here, but what we need to know about them now is that they can get attach to your energy field or hang around in your home/office etc. They find you for usually two reasons. They got attracted to your energy either because you send out negative and low vibes, like anxiety, bitterness, low self esteem which may result in guilt, fear, enviousness etc., or they are around you because you have really high vibes and they hope you will help them. They want to pass over but they cannot do it by themselves. (The group of spirits, you have also heard about or seen in movies, that need help from you to deliver a message to a person or the world, and that is why they bother you, can be put into this category. Once they are helped, most of them are willing to leave). But living people around you, like your neighbors, co workers, bosses, kids, family members etc can project negative energies toward you. How? simply just thinking or saying bad things about you, what they don't like about you or what bad things wish you to experience.
Since it is not a mediumship training, let's just say that you are either high or low, you may attract these beings. They will get into your aura, they may altar your thinking, your diet, you may start craving for things you have never liked before or gave up many years ago. They may bother you while sleeping ... most of the time they are harmless. They are basically "lost people without a body". Again, this blog does not let me to go into details about who (what spirits) and how intensively or how strongly they interfere with your energy, but one thing is sure: they have low vibes and they are not helpful to you ex.: they can make you sick; so here we are we are back where we started: it is time to wash your hands again.
So the way to keep you clean and safe from these low vibrational beings is to cleanse your very personal space = aura around you. You can consider your aura as a kind of extension of your body; and you want your body to be clean, right?
HERE ARE SOME EASY TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES ABOUT HOW TO CLEANSE YOUR AURA:
1/ imagine yourself under a shower of white light. It can come from a shower or a waterfall or from white and divine clouds.... anything. Imagine that this white light is running down on the outside of your aura, then it cleans the actual energy field = aura. You can go further, and you can imagine that this white light washes down your skin and your body inside as well; all your organs, tissues, cells and atoms. Come on! Close your eyes and imagine it. When you are done, come back and read further.
Here are some of the mudras that will help you be clean and free of energetic debris and beings: This is the 1st one, called Kasyapa.
You can hold your fingers the way this picture shows or you can put your thumb on both of the fingernails of your middle and ring finger.
If you feel you really need to clean your room or house, put your left hand in Kasyapa behind your back on the sacrum and put your right hand in Karana in your lap. Close your eyes and imagine you are breathing in white light and and as you exhale while holding your hands in these position you start growing and your energy is getting bigger and bigger, feeling up the room then the whole house and pushing out all unwanted energy from your home and property. You can say any prayer to enhance the power of this strong technique.
One of my favorite mantra they taught me from above (while I am holding my hands explained above): "I am one with light and light is me." These low vibe beings DO NOT LIKE light or love so this mantra will ring the bell for them and also for you too. Remember : you are light = energy and god. You can change the words saying: "I am one with love and love is me"
Finishing up this blog, we are exposed to so much though forms, emotional forms in life, meaning the dramas of your co-workers and the ones you created. Next time we will talk about protection, but for now just imagine you are walking in water. This water is full of trash like, plastic bags, soda cans, food left overs etc. yuk, hu? Well, unfortunately, this is how most of our natural water resources look like. But this is symbolically how our energetic environment is: the plastic bag is jealousy from your neighbor, the soda can is a headache from your spouse and the food leftover is guilt from your coworker about yelling at her child this morning.. you too? Wow. you got hooked on it.
The first step to know your own energy and being able to tell when you are under other people's influence is to get to know your OWN, DIVINE energy. That is why you need to cleanse and cleanse and cleanse.... Instead of getting on FB while you are waiting for your child at his basketball training next time, imagine you are sitting under the white shower while you are having your hands in any of the mudras mentioned above. If you want to take it to the next level, just keep saying to yourslef and god: "Thank you God!, Thank you God!, Thank you God!..." etc. You might be surprised how differently you will go on and finish your day!
Let me know if you have any questions or comments about this topic. See you next time learning about some protection techniques!
