Winter has allowed us to rest and reflect and now as Spring officially approaches, it’s time to shake off the blahs and prepare for the season of rebirth and growth. Here’s the perfect Spring ritual for the season’s first full moon.
Energetic Spring Cleaning
It’s time to clear out the old, stale or lingering stagnation and make room for the new. What better way than to start by cleansing yourself, your crystals, tarot cards and divination tools?
Set aside at least 30 minutes for yourself. Lock the door if needed. This is YOUR time! Take a clearing salt bath. Add 26 ounces of plain old table salt into warm water in your tub. Pick it up at ANY grocery for way under a buck. No need for expensive Himalayan salt for this clearing ritual. Put the ENTIRE 26 ounces in the tub and swish it around to dissolve the crystals.
You can add Epsom Salts if you have sore muscles, but regular salt has green (clearing) prana energy and that’s what is going to breakup that staleness in your aura and allow the old stuff to be washed away. Add a drop of essential oils if you like. Citronella is the featured oil for March.
Add your crystals into the water and let them soak with you. They will benefit from the salt cleanse and you will benefit from the crystals energizing the bath water. (Caution: not all gemstones can tolerate salt water. Check before soaking them.)
No tub? No problem. Use a good quality salt scrub or salt soap to cleanse your aura. Soak your crystals in a bowl of salt water instead of the tub.
Create a Sacred Mood
Turn the lights down and light a citronella candle. Yup, the familiar sent used every summer to keep the bugs off. Citronella refreshes a weary mind and lifts the spirit. It can be used for ritual purification or to cleanse a new home of old, lingering energies. It dispels heavy and dark thought-forms and negative energies. Pick one up almost anywhere. Just be sure it has essential oils, not fragrance oils. Only essential oils have therapeutic benefits.
Turn on some frequencies. Use music set to 528 hz, 432 hz or listen to chanting, prayers or meditations you like. Download ($.99) or listen (free) to my 20 minutes of Ho’ Oponopono chanting for the perfect spiritual cleansing.
Slip into the warm tub and try to get as much of your body under the water as possible. Use your hand or washrag to sprinkle water over areas exposed. Focus on release and clearing. Envision the salt breaking up the staleness and the water rinsing it away. If a troubling thought or emotion arises, take a deep breath and blow out hard, envisioning it leaving your body, mind and spirit...dissipating into nothingness... allowing the water to dissolve it and wash it away. You’ll want to soak for no more than about 20 minutes.
Carefully remove the crystals and place them off to the side to be rinsed later. Now, shower off, wash what you need to wash, imagine all the staleness is now just being washed away with the water as it flows over your body. You feel refreshed and clear. Thank the water and dry off. Get into some favorite clean clothes. Soft night clothes are my favorites.
Next, rinse your crystals in clear water to remove all traces of the salt. Rub gently if appropriate and envision any dirty energy is being lifted off and properly disposed of. Pat them dry.
Clear your divination tools with sage, Palo Santo or incense. Light your smudge and waft the smoke around your tools. See all the old and stale being lifted away and disbursing. You can also chant, “Clear… Transmute… Heal!”
Once you, your tools and crystals are cleared, time to recharge. The first full moon of spring couldn’t be a better time! Place your crystals (and yourself) out in the full moon for an hour or more. Overnight is best (for the crystals!) Be sure to remember where you put them if you are burying them or placing them in or around plants. You can also place the crystals, your cards or other tools on the windowsill to soak up the Lunar energy. Don’t fret if it is cloudy. The energy is still there.
Finally, you will want to reprogram your crystals for upcoming season of growth and renewal. Everything (including you!) will be more effective if they have been cleared, charged, and programmed.
Program Your Crystals
To program your crystals after cleansing and charging them in the moonlight, hold them and focus your attention on the crystal and say, “Crystal, listen to me. Strengthen my aura and protect me from psychic contamination.” “Help me be more self-confident.” Or whatever simple command you wish your crystal to do for you. If you want all your crystals to do the same thing, you can program them together. If not, work on programming each one individually.
There you go! Your crystals are now cleared, charged, programmed and ready to help you in your life. You can use them in your space or carry them in a pocket or wear as jewelry.
Doing this during a full moon will amplify everything. Full moon energy is known to help with:
· Manifesting goals
· Love Knowledge
· Legal undertakings
