How to clean yourself, gems, crystals, objects and more.

Clean everything and regularly. We in general, give off negative or positive energy when we’re in good or bad moods. Traumatic events leave energetic ‘stains’ which give off poor energy. Gas mains, water pipes, running water under your house, electricity pylons – all give off negative energy. You don’t want anyone energy in your live. Protect your and nurture it.

Water, Salt and incense will be your best friends here. But there’s more.

What to clean? Gems, crystals, pendulums, jewelry and other objects
Tools: The Sun and Moon or Earth

Place your gems, crystals, pendulums, jewelry, all types of objects, in a place where they will be fully exposed to the energizing rays of the sun and moon. Even if the day is cloudy or you cannot see the moon, their rays will energize the stones as long as they are directly exposed to these elements of nature. They will normally be cleansed within 24 hours of exposure. 

However, stones such as black tourmaline which are being used to deflect negative energies or help release negative energies in your physical and energetic bodies, may require up to 48 hours to become fully cleansed and regenerated. Stones such as aquamarine and amethyst will fade in the sun so you will have to use another method for cleansing and regenerating these gemstones. 

You can also place your gems, crystals, jewelry, whatever, in the earth, either directly into the earth or you can place the gems and crystals into a cloth covering, preferably a natural fabric such as cotton or wool or silk. Leave the gem or crystal buried for at least 24 hours to ensure that they become fully re-energized.  If possible, find a spot where the soil is not being spread with chemicals through fertilizers or pesticides.  This cleanses all negative energies and re-energizes the stones.

What to clean? Yourself
Tools: Bath salts, Candle, bowl or base

First, take a bath to prepare yourself physically for the spiritual cleansing using bath salts you can use also essential oils like lavender, rose petals, chamomile, cinnamon. Be creative and with purpose!

Second, write down the aspects of your life that you wish to cleanse. Focus on items that contribute to negativity and keep you stuck. Include everything that needs to be released to clear your spirit. Then as third step, meditate on the list of negatives you just created. Envision the negativity in your life dissolving, turning to dust and blowing away on the wind and repeat a mantra such as, “I release all that is negative in my life. I release its power over me. I reclaim the power of my spirit.”

Forth, burn the list while repeating: “I am purified by the flame. My spirit is cleansed and freed”. As you do this, imagine everything negative rising up from your spirit and vaporizing.

9 Ways to Cleanse Negativity


Negativity is a pain in the neck and every-time you try to accomplish something, negativity might block you. That’s why I decided today to share this short but insightful article published by The Alchemist. Original source:

You must be wondering, there should be a way to cleanse negativity. Of course there is. 9 to be exact (if not more). Here we are going to present you easy ways to banish and cleanse negativity.

Is negativity around?

The First question you have to answer is “does negativity surround me?”. Well to answer this we have to go one step back. Here you can find 10 Signs (and symptoms) when negativity is around. Have you answered yes in more than 5 (out of ten) questions? Then, it is time to make a change and try and see how your magic can help you rectify the issue.

And here is how to get rid of Negative Energy and Cleanse Negativity:

    1. Setting the intention to get rid of all this negativity is step one. The stronger your will, the stronger your magic.
    2. Forgiveness. Simple acts of letting go and forgiving our selves and others have extremely healing properties. All we need to recognise is that everybody tries the best they know how and let things go.
    3. Using the power of water for its cleansing properties. Best solution is to prepare a hot bath, use some salt (or Epsom salts) and add essential oils of herbs with cleansing and healing properties such as eucalyptus, achillea, sage, myrrh and peppermint. Please remember to dilute and do not apply directly on your skin. Dive in and soak your body. Feel the cleansing properties of water removing all the debris from your body and aura and take deep breaths to allow the aroma of the oils replenish you.
    4. Ask assistance from your Deities, the Universe and any higher forces that you work with. The first step is to recognise that you need help, put your pride aside and ask for it. When you ask they will listen.
    5. Carry crystals which ground negativity and have protective properties such as onyx, obsidian, black tourmaline or tiger’s eye. Remember to cleanse them every so often as they all have storing capacities.
    6. Time for a good house cleansing.
    7. Cast a purification and cleansing spell.
    8. Cast a protection spell.
    9. Use the upcoming ritual of the chalice and the athame

Always remember to take baby steps and keep going, asking for help is not a sign of weakness and whatever the situation you are stronger than you think and you can always surpass your expectations.

Spell for Managing Negative Habits


Poppetry used in aiding a host’s breaking of negative habits.

You will need the following items for this spell:

  • 1 poppet
  • 1 stretch of cloth
  • 1 bowl of water
  • 1 jar
  • 1 lighter
  • 1 dash of salt
  • X drops of lemon juice

Casting Instructions for ‘Managing Negative Habits’


  • Understand that this spell is meant to aid in managing a negative habit, not cure it.
  • Ask permission of the host for a strip of cloth from a garment they own (skip if you are the host).
  • Make a poppet of desired form and material (not using the cloth strip yet).
  • Take a bowl of water and add a dash of salt and the desired number of lemon drops.
  • Keep a jar and lighter handy.


Take the strip of cloth and soak it in the water mixture, adding the cleansing energies of salt and lemon to the host’s personal energy. Wring out the cloth so it is damp (not dripping or dry) and wrap it around the poppet. As you do so, realize that the salt absorbs the residual energy of the habit and the lemon helps break it down time to time. As this spell is for managing an on-going issue, repeat as necessary, adding more lemon juice drops as you go for build up. As the spell cooks, leave the poppet in a jar with the lid sealed. Once finished, safely burn the cloth and poppet, then bury the ashes in a place deemed acceptable.
