Over the past few months I’ve been having a huge re-think on so many levels -and taking care of your own ‘personal energy’ has cropped up time and time again for me.
We take the time to clean our homes, our clothes, our bodies, our cars…the list of stuff goes on and on. Cleaning is definitely something most of us do frequently, and without much thought but its important to us to keep our possessions, bodies and environments clean.
When I went in for surgery earlier this year, the attention to having a clean and sterile environment was of paramount importance. When an operation takes place in theatre there are restrictions on who can enter and leave the room, for obvious reasons.
So why don’t we focus half as much attention towards our own personal energy and space? People enter our space every day and each person brings their own particular vibe into our realm. You know what I’m talking about, ‘vibes’. There are people who can leave you feeling drained, angry, frustrated, happy, uplifted etc. and whether we like it or not, energy can linger. We cant always control the people we come into contact with and we certainly cant control their moods or disposition but these encounters have the potential to leave us feeling a little out of kilter.
Being a huge lover of all things natural, I try to find a solution in nature for most things in my life. And if you’re interested in cleansing your own personal energy or even the energy in your own home then there are plenty of natural remedies to help here.
There are so many herbs that can cleanse a space and their benefits have been used for centuries by Native Americans. Burning herbs of this nature is usually referred to as the ancient art of smudging. It’s the ceremonial name given for the ritual of cleansing and purification using a selection of herbs, often sage, which are bundled together with string to form a smudge stick before being ignited. The smoke from the herbs is believed to cleanse negative energy and purify living spaces, as well as people and objects such as furniture, tools etc.
This is a subject I could dive into and prattle on about for ages, so I’m going to keep this short for now. Its just a little post to put the thought out there for now.
Whatever you do, don’t overlook your own personal energy field. Its all about the vibes!
Sending you all love and good vibes.
