Energy clearing meditation

Close your eyes and take three deep breaths.

Imagine a huge root growing from your base chakra (located at the base of your spine), down through your legs, through your feet and into the ground. Growing deeper and deeper in to the core of Mother Earth, wrapping around a large crystal there.

See, sense or feel a pink light beaming into your base chakra from the crystal, going up through your root, into your feet, up your legs and into the base chakra. Swirling around and grounding you.

See, sense or feel this energy now shooting up through your body and coming out of the top of your head, tumbling down all around you. Clearing and cleansing you.

Now see, sense or feel a light coming down from above into your head and through your body, through your root into Mother Earth. Imagine it going through your arms and out through your hands. This is cleansing you also.

See, sense or feel all this energy circling through you, clearing and cleansing your mind, body and spirit.

Stay with this as long as you wish and then when you are ready, take three deep breaths and come back to the room.

Energy clearing meditation

Sage cleansing prayer for negative energy

When using sage to smudge yourself or the space you are in you can ask the sage to help you with a small prayer. This is something I do when using sage, as follows:

Grandfather Sage, please cleanse and clear me of all negativity. 

Anything that no longer serves me, please help release it.

For mind, body, spirit and aura.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

If clearing your home or space, you could say:

Grandfather Sage, please clear and cleanse this space of all negativity.

Please release anything that no longer needs to be here.

In all directions, space and time.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
