Spiritual protection and cleansing are important practices that many forget or choose not to facilitate regularly. I always say, "PRACTICE SAFE CRYSTALS." Working with crystals, pendulums, oracle/tarot cards, and other divination tools, scrying, even meditation, lucid dreaming, and astral projection, are not to be taken lightly or rushed into. I speak from experience on this. Spiritual protection is no joke.

Then we have cleansing. You wash your bodies regularly, right? Each day we accumulate energetic debris that can build up over time and the longer we wait to clear it away, the harder it is to do so. Think of plaque on teeth. Ok, not the greatest visual but you get what I mean. It is believed by many that this energetic debris starts in our energetic field. It then travels closer and closer to the physical body where it may manifest physically causing dis-ease.


There are MANY ways to incorporate spiritual protection and cleansing into your life. I list some possibilities below but please remember to go within on this one to find what works best for you. I'm just giving you some ideas to dive deeper into if you choose to do so.


Cleansing and Re-tuning Crystals

Cleansing and re-tuning crystals is an important part of working with crystals but it doesn't have to be a huge ordeal. Crystals are much more stable than we are and in my belief, need much less fussing over than we may think. Some common ways include: sound, sunlight (caution: some crystals will fade in sunlight), moonlight, salt (not a great idea for most crystals), burying the crystal, water, and of course sage or smudging. Others love the moon. It's a preference thing. To delve into this topic further, please visit the crystal cleansing page here.

Cleansing Space

Make a salt water spray-use sea salt or himalayan salt if possible, but it is not required. Spray corners of room, behind doors, inside closets, anywhere where you feel it needs to be cleansed. Be sure to have clear affirmation that you are cleansing the space.

Burn white sage, rosemary, other sacred herbs, or palo santo wood, in corners, behind doors, etc. with affirmation you are clearing space.

Sample Affirmations

I am safe, secure, loved, and divinely protected.
I exhale negative energies and inhale positive energies.
Negative energies and thoughts have no power over me.
I live a heart-centered life and trust my intuition.
I live my life to the fullest and without fear.
I release all fears and worries.

NOTE: always open a window to let the "negative" go OUT. You can direct the negative or unwanted energies to go out the window or with your mind’s eye, create a black hole and direct the “negative” energy to go there. I personally like to transmute the negative energy by turning it into white light.

Gem Spray - Make a gem spray out of certain crystals like Black Onyx, Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Black Obsidian, etc. Spray like you would spray salt water.

Essential Oil Sprays - you can also add some essential oil to the gem water spray if you like. I add sage essential oil and Palo Santo to my space clearing gem spray. But you can also make a spray with just water and essential oil, or you can add some essential oil to your salt spray!

Sound - sounds can clear a space and fill it up. Clap hands, beat a drum, go around to each corner, behind doors, etc. Say affirmation. Again, open a window any time you are clearing a space.

Tuning Forks


Happiness and laughter can clear a space - There can only be one frequency in a space at a time. So if you play happy music, go around with chimes, laugh, sing, joke, etc. you will PUSH out the unwanted energy because the joy and laughter is higher frequency. I will often go round my house with chimes or my singing bowl, after I do the other methods as well. If you don't fill the empty space with high frequency, joy, etc. then it leaves space for the unwanted, negative energies to come in.

Crystals - You can place certain crystals around the space. Black Tourmaline, Smokey Quartz, Hematite, and Black Obsidian are awesome for protection and clearing. Salt lamps and Selenite lamps too, are great for clearing the air and creating a warm, peaceful environment. You can place pieces of Black Tourmaline around doors ways and windows or in each corner of the room. You can also make a crystal grid to protect the space.

Visualizations - Visualize your space filling with white or golden light. You can also visualize anything that you feel is cleansing.


Spiritual Cleansing and Protection - Parts 1 and 2



Cleansing Self

  • Use Selenite, Clear Quartz or Labradorite to cleanse aura.

  • Black Obsidian arrowheads, Black Kyanite blades to release energetic cords.

  • Take a salt bath (use sea salt of place a piece of Himalayan salt (Halite) into the bath. Note: it will dissolved over time).

  • Spray aura with vibrational spray made of Smokey Quartz, Citrine, etc. Add sage essential oil or Palo Santo oil.

  • Dance and sing, laugh.

  • Imagine that you place all troubles and fear into a basket and tie a helium balloon onto the basket and see the basket float away.

  • Swim in the ocean or any body of salt water. Visit the beach page.


Remember, you do not NEED anyone to cleanse you or your space. You can do it yourself. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! However, if you would like some assistance, I do offer one to one services. You can learn more about that here.



Ways to Cleanse Your Aura

Using Crystal Wands

  • Crystals on window sills and around doors.
  • Crystal grids and mojo mags.
  • Visualize white light or golden light around you and in your space.
  • Visualize placing a mirror around yourself.
  • Visualize placing a bubble around yourself.
  • Visualize placing a shield around yourself.
  • Visualize placing a brick wall around yourself.
  • Visualize that you are standing in mud. Cover yourself with mud and imagine pieces of violet glass sticking to the mud, all around you. Violet is protective and the mirror is reflective plus the mud is grounding. GREAT visual!
  • Call AA Michael and ask that he place his shield around you or his protective cloak.
