Our auras are like magnets picking up vibrational energies that are floating around everywhere we go. It is important to cleanse our auras freeing them of foreign vibrations and negative energies. Here are a few simple ways to do it.

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: 10 - 15 minutes


Here's How:


Using your fingers as a comb, comb through the space surrounding your body from head to toe.

Clean your hands with running water before and after doing this.

Stand under a waterfall or shower.

Walking in the rainfall.

Run freely and playfully in the wind.

Using a single feather or feather whisk make sweeping motions through the space surrounding your body.

Smudge the area surrounding your body with the smoke from sage, lavender, and/or sweet grass.

Immerse and soak your body in an Epsom salt bath.



Turkey or owl feathers are especially good feathers to use for sweeping the aura.

Take care to do some deep breathing exercises while cleansing your aura to aid in flushing your inner body.






To help balance your light body and align your chakra energy system repeat each of the incantations listed below.


Speak the first part of the phrase out loud as you inhale.

Speak the second part of the phrase as you exhale.

 Repeat each of the twelve incantation ten times.

 When you are finished you will feel centred and balanced

Meditation - Your Cleansing Room


You are going to create a cleansing room for yourself –

This will be your room -no one else can enter it.

This cleansing room can be decorated and have in it what ever you want – large shower – marble sunken bath - white tiles – fluffy towels – candles - lovely scented bath or shower gel. Candles - Flowers - It is up to you.

Take some time to decide what you would like in your room. Visualise your room and feel at home and relaxed in it.

When you are ready and you can visualise your room very clearly – imagine lying in a lovely bubble bath and feel all your cares slipping away.

When you feel tired – drained or just need a pick up – all you have to do is imagine your room then do the following meditation:-

(Step 1) Place both feet on the ground and mentally prepare for your meditation.

Begin by grounding and centring yourself.

Close your eyes and imagine (visualise) that thick fibrous

roots growing from your feet and also from the base of your spine.

These roots are going down into the Earth. Going down through

all the layers of Earth and Minerals into the core of the earth.

When they reach the core of the Earth they are going to Anchor

themselves into it and you will feel very grounded.

(Step 2) Next follow this simple breathing exercise to relax your physical body:

Breath in through your nose and release very slowly through your

mouth. Repeat this three times then unconsciously continue breathing

this way through the meditation.

If you notice any mind cluttering thoughts, imagine them floating

away in a bubble. (Don’t worry if this seems difficult – it takes

practice before being able to completely quiet your mind. You will

still be able to meditate.)

Below is a good way of using your room to destress and bring calm

to your mind and body:-

Imagine(visualise) the following:

Walk over to your shower. Enter it and feel the lovely warm water coming

down around you. As you stand under your shower imagine that all your worries

and cares are going down the plug hole with the water.

If you prefer to have a bath – enjoy lying in your bath feeling very relaxed and

when you have finished - before you get out of the bath - pull out the plug and

imagine all your cares going down the plug hole with the bath water)


When you have finished your shower or bath you notice that at the other end

of the room there is a pedestal – walk over and stand on to this pedestal -

as you do so a lovely warming bright light comes on and shines down on you

like sunlight. It feels warming and energising.

As you stand under this light you can feel your body being energised as the

beautiful white lights shines all around you.

Relish in these feelings – You feel at peace and energised.

Stay here for as long as you want – it’s your space.

When you are ready – feel your feet on the ground – your bottom on the seat

and open your eyes.
