Cleaning your aura, sounds funny doesn’t it? Yet we brush our teeth every day, removing the foreign particles (food and bacteria), preventing the build-up of plaque, and leaving us with a fresh and clean mouth. The same is true of our aura. A clean and clear aura is one of the first steps to understanding a little bit more about ourselves.
Most people have an aura filled with the energy of other peoples’ thoughts and feelings. That makes it very difficult to differentiate your true thoughts and emotions from those of other people in your life. If you are having trouble getting in touch with your Spirit, with your Highest and Best Self, it’s probably because you have a multitude of competing voices, competing energies, clogging up your internal channels of communication. Cleaning out your aura will remove the foreign energy, making room for your voice, your special, unique vibration to shine.
I would like to offer a couple of very simple tools that you could use every day to release any foreign energy from your space.
The first tool that helps to keep our aura clean and our vibration clear is called a grounding cord. A grounding cord is literally an energy cord that connects your body to the center of the earth. It acts like a vacuum cleaner, helping you efficiently release any energy from your system that is not your own.
You will know you are ungrounded if you are tired, lightheaded, scattered, anxious, or just plain grumpy. During our constant interactions with people and the environment around us, we continually pick up other peoples’ energies. We literally become an energetic dumping ground accepting energies from those we interact with on a daily basis. This reduces our ability to perceive and act from our own authentic knowledge, power, and inspiration. Feelings of relaxation, centeredness, and clarity of thought, result from grounding to the center of the earth.
Exercise: Grounding To The Earth
Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor and your eyes closed. Take a couple of deep breaths and visualize a wide, hollow tube connected to your hips. This tube falls below your feet, through the floor and continues down to the center of the planet. Feel this cord anchoring into the core of the earth. Feel a slight upward tug on the cord as it lets you know that it is completely anchored and secure.
The purpose of this cord is to act as a vacuum cleaner sucking foreign energy right out of your aura and returning it to Mother Earth where it will be recycled and returned to its original clean, clear essence.
Foreign energy makes your body feel tight, tense, and uncomfortable. As a society, we have become so used to holding tension in our bodies that we have forgotten our natural state of relaxation and comfort.
An old Chinese proverb states, “Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.” Maybe you have some tension in your shoulders, or your feet. Bring your awareness to that point and feel the sore spot release. Let it go. As it releases, imagine that energy dropping right out of your body and falling down the grounding cord. Let it go. Give your body permission to release all that stress, all that foreign energy. You don’t need to store it in your body. Release it all.
This grounding cord stays in place the entire day, continually vacuuming up all the gunk in your aura and returning it to the earth. Take a couple of deep breaths, open your eyes, get up, and walk around. Imagine your grounding cord still in place. It moves when you do allowing you complete mobility.
See if you can feel the tug, securely anchoring you to the center of the earth. Anytime during the day that you begin to feel tired, scattered, anxious, or annoyed, imagine this grounding cord moving to maximum release. Feel the rush as all that foreign energy leaves your aura and moves back to the earth.
Now that you have removed some energy from your space, you will want to fill in those gaps, those empty spaces in your aura, with energy that is in alignment with your unique vibration.
As you continue to sit quietly with your feet on the floor and your eyes closed, take a couple of deep breaths. Imagine a gigantic golden sun above your head. See the sun filled with golden light. Imagine that this sun is about three times the size of your body.
Now place a giant magnet in this sun and ask this magnet to call back your own scattered energy. Let all your energy come back from the past, from the future, from your job, family, friends, colleagues, any place, situation, or problem where you have invested your energy.
Feel all that energy zoom back into the golden sun. Ask that your energy is returned to its original clean essence, to the highest vibration and frequency that is just right for you today.
In addition, fill this golden sun with whatever you would like more of today: relaxation, peace, abundance, self-validation, whatever qualities you feel would benefit you most today. See those qualities permeate the sun, vibrating at a frequency that is just right for your body.
Now, pop the golden sun and let all your own energy and all those qualities flow into your body, filling in every cell and membrane of your body. Allow the excess to move from your body out into your aura.
Feel yourself refreshed and vibrating at your optimal frequency, enveloped in a cocoon of energies that are just right for your body. The world around you can be full of chaos and turmoil, but you, in the center of your aura, filled up with your own energy, can be relaxed, free from stress and turmoil. Own this space. Know that within your aura, you are in charge. You are the master of this space.
Sit in this wonderfully peaceful space of relaxation and fullness for a moment or two. When you are ready, open your eyes, and notice how you feel. Is your body vibrating a little bit differently? Maybe a little bit faster or lighter. Fill your aura with a golden sun of energy anytime that you feel scattered, unfocused, or are not operating at your full potency.
