Cleansing, Protection and Grounding Techniques
What is an aura
Your aura is the energy field that surrounds your body. It acts as a magnetic field of energy that picks up on emotions, health, psychic debris and circumstances around you. Your aura can experience stress as you exchange energies with those around you, which is exactly why you need to clean your auric field.
White Light Waterfall:
An easy method of spiritual cleansing when you are in the shower both morning and evening is to visualize white light falling from the shower head with the water. Close your eyes as you feel the warm water soothing over you, see the light begin to glow a vibrant white, and as it washes over you it lifts the debris and heavy energy from your aura. This is an effective method that you can practice every day when you shower.
Another technique I like to use is to sit with your feet on the floor and imagine roots going from your feet and anchoring down into the ground, then imagine a brilliant white light above my head ( crown chakra ) . Bring that white light down though your crown chakra all the way down through the others chakras and fill your whole body with white light. Start to see this white light rotating inside of you removing anything not for your highest good, then start to see it spinning outside of you removing any negative debris from your aura, then once you feel its all been removed send this up to the universe to be recycled and turned into beautiful healing energy, the universe will then send this energy to where it needs to go in the world. Finally see yourself surrounded by this white light and know you are protected.

ENERGETIC CORDS and how to release them:
When you interact with people, you develop what is called an energetic cord, like an energetic tube and the energy flows back and forth to the attached person or place. The cords grow with the intensity of the relationship. The largest cords are the ones that connect to parents, siblings and long term relationships. When we release these cords we are not releasing the positive aspect, we are releasing the negative energy, draining our energetic body. For example, let's say that you have a cord connected to your mother who constantly suffers with anxiety and depression. Without knowing, that person starts draining energy from you and you may start to feel tired, drained, anxious, depressed, without knowing why.
Calling on Archangel Michael
You are calling upon the energy of Archangel Michael to release negative energetic cords attached to people, places, fears, stories or situations.
Simply have the thought " Archangel Michael please cut any negative cords attached to me right now ", you can visualize him with a sword and cutting away the cords, don't worry if you can't, just know it's being done.
RELEASING ENERGETIC HOOKS
This technique requires you to call upon the energy of Archangel Michael and ask him to use his magnet to remove any negative energy, knifes, hooks or debris from your back that has been placed there from other people's thoughts, negative situations you have been around, negative interactions you have had with other people. Again if you can visualize he has a big magnet in his hand and he places it over your back, again don't worry if you can't, just know it's happening.
CLEANSING HOME/WORK SPACE
Call upon Archangel Michael and say " Archangel Michael I ask you to come and remove any lower vibrations or any negative energies from every part of my home, I then ask that you then bring in beautiful bright healing light to fill every part of my home. I then ask you to cleanse everyone in the home and with your sword I ask you to cut away any negative energetic cord or ties from people, situations, places, fears, stories & the past, and I then ask Archangel Raphael to heal the cords or ties that have been cut and send healing to everyone in the house for their highest good, Thank you. I then ask archangel Michael to stand at all four corners of the house and protect us from any negative energies. Thank you.
Whenever we ask, always finish with a Thank you.
Grounding Yourself Why grounding is important:
Grounding is basically balancing out the spiritual and physical energy in your body, by connecting yourself with the earth. When you are grounded, you feel like you are here, in the physical, in the present. To be grounded gives your energy a point of steadiness and you will feel clear, centred, strong and focused.
When you are grounded it allows you to be present, organize your thoughts, and grow in a way that is in alignment with your vision. When you are ungrounded you may feel frantic, stressed, in chaos, easily distracted, powerless, spacey, and unconnected to your body and life. Being ungrounded can make you feel out of control and trigger anxiety because you become easily influenced by other people and your environment. We all have those frantic days where there doesn’t seem to be enough hours, or where we are overwhelmed, people pleasing, trying to meet others’ expectations, feeling scatterbrained, or lost. These are the times when it’s really important to re-ground, bring your energy back to you, refill your cup, and realign with what is important to you. When you are grounded, you become your own energy source, drawing on a strong foundational relationship within yourself. Grounding allows your body to access your talents, your power, and nourish your visions and goals to create the best life for you.
Different grounding Techniques:
You can imagine yourself standing barefoot on grass, moss, sand, or on the earth. Imagine roots growing out of the soles of your feet and the end of your spine and see them growing deep down into Mother Earth.
Soak up the beautiful, red energy from Mother Earth and let it come through your feet and spine into your body, running up, through your energy body and nourishing you. Do that for a couple of minutes each day.
Sitting on The earth
Sit on the earth whenever possible, breathing it all in. Again, imagine growing roots deep, deep down into the centre of Mother Earth, and let her energy come up and warm you.
Walk barefoot in nature whenever possible. It really helps us to connect with the essence of Mother Earth. Really pay attention to feeling the grassy ground beneath your feet.
It helps us to release stress and soak up fresh energy.
Walking in nature
Nature is our greatest healer; being out in nature opens a person up to the Energy of Mother Earth, which is deeply healing and so refreshing. While walking, just feel the connection to Mother Earth with each step you take.
There are many more grounding techniques I.e. Meditation, finding a hobby you love, exercise, breath work, and journaling etc.
