The Metaphysics of Cleansing

Traditionally, metaphysics refers to the branch of philosophy that attempts to understand the fundamental nature of all reality, whether visible or invisible. It seeks a description so basic, so essentially simple, so all-inclusive that it applies to everything, whether divine or human or anything else. It attempts to tell what anything must be like in order to be at all.

Cleansing is the washing away of that, which is unclean. When talking about cleansing in alternative medicine, there are three main areas in our lives, which need to be addressed. Cleansing the body, the mind and the spirit.

Cleansing the body is done to keep our physical machine in optimum health. We are born into a body with physical limitations that begins aging the day we are brought into this world. We can learn to use the body’s own healing mechanisms to trigger change. There are many ways to bring about corporeal awareness and change.

Cleansing the mind is done to bring awareness to all that causes us limitations in thinking. The overthinking that is rooted in fear and deters us from living wholeheartedly, can be one of our biggest detriments. We can learn to free our minds from this imprisonment and create a focused and well balanced mind set.

Cleansing the spirit is brought about by learning to accept a Universal power that is greater than ourselves. It is the ability to look at those beliefs which do not serve us any longer and the possibility to honor those beliefs that do serve us.

How to Declutter

The first lesson is to start small! Start with your desk, a closet, or one room. It is easy to get overwhelmed when deculttering. Do not allow it. I love to clear the space of everything. Take a look at the empty space. Ahhh. Remember when this last occurred? How do you feel in this space now?  Use these ancient techniques found in the proponents of Feng Shui, to help clear out the clutter…

Cleansing Detox

A great way to remember to detox is by doing it at the change of seasons. Of course, detoxing can take place anytime, but it seems especially powerful around a seasonal transition. Detoxing is not only limited to our physical bodies, but to our mind and spirit as well. Limiting beliefs, lack of trust, poor boundaries, excessive worry, fear and anger…. can all be helped by our approach to a seasonal detox…

Cleansing with Energy Medicine

Energy Medicine is based on the belief that the human body is composed of energy fields. When the energy is properly distributed and circulating freely, the body is healthy. Greater self control and self balance, awareness, inner peace and connective energy to the source of truth are all important in the path to attunement. Energetic Cleansing is related to the act of seeing, both physically and intuitively.

Creating A Sacred Space

Making a sacred space of your own, whether it be an altar, meditation space, area for your crystal treasures or just room for you to breath, can be a fun and exciting choice.  Start by finding a space to use on a regular basis as “your” space. Doing this, conditions your mind to become familiar and therefore feel relaxed once you are in this space. It will allow you to immediately relax…

 

Cosmic Meditation

The following meditation is said to be one of the meditation taught by Buddha about 2500 years ago. The primary focus is your breathing. However, the primary goal is maintaining a calm, non-judging awareness, allowing thoughts, feelings and sensations to come and go without getting enmeshed in them. This calm, accepting, spacious awareness is your Core Self… your Essence.

Crystals for Cleansing

The mere fact that crystals are placed in an environment suggests to the subconscious mind that healing, on some subliminal level, has already begun. When crystals are placed in a room, they will automatically charge that area with energy. The clearing, focusing, radiating beauty aspects of a crystal, works, regardless if someone is aware of these traits or not. These are some elements of a crystal’s power.

 

Herbs Used for Cleansing

From the ancient Mayan culture to the Egyptians, Romans and Indian tribes, herbs have been used, historically for cleansing for centuries. The burning of herbs, called smudging has been practiced to purify objects and locations.

Sweet Grass:  has the most sacred usage of all the purification herbs. It is a seasonal plant and grows only in certain places. Sweet grass is used primarily for the blessing of one’s self.

Sage: is used for smudging and blessing of our homes and Sacred places. It is commonly used in tea smoking pipes, sweat lodge ceremonies and smudge pots.

Cedar: is considered by some tribes as the “tree of life” because it withstands the four elements year round no matter how harsh the seasons are. It is one of the planet’s oldest trees.

Essential Oils for Cleansing

The power of our senses can be harnessed as an unbelievable tool that you can use to your life’s advantage! Diffusing essential oils stimulate our olfactory nerve. These essence can restore balance and harmony to your body, your surroundings and to your life. The energy of a scent can invigorate and cleanse your environment. Here are some of the most noted oils for cleansing and clearing!

Cleansing for a New Year

It has always been a family ritual to clear out the old things that have “gathered in the corners” and then cleanse the space around you that you utilize most often. Many people often do a cleansing of their homes or business on the eve of the New Year or New Year’s day to release the old and ring in the new. These are beautiful traditions that I always love to see people undertake.
