The next Pillar of Power and Wellbeing is the Pillar of Purification.
As you may have guessed, this core tenet of Energy Healing focuses on the practice of self purification as a means to maintain balance, health, wellbeing, personal power, and even brilliance!
Purification is the process of making pure or clean. From an energetic and spiritual perspective, this means removing, transforming, and reducing thoughts, habits, energies, substances, and spiritual forces that move us away from our highest expression of Love and Light.
The following are the top four sources of physical, energetic, emotional, and spiritual toxicity and they also happen to be the top four sources of positive and restorative energies:
Food can be amazing source of purifying and restorative energy and yet, for the mainstream consumer, it has become a colossal source of toxicity, suppression, and control. Modern, highly processed foods dull our senses, carry a tremendous toxic chemical load, and vibrate at lower frequencies. They are designed to appeal to our primitive brains and create a chemical dependency.
The easiest way to immediately improve one’s health and wellbeing is through food as it is something we all consume every day. The nutrition of maximal health is complicated but can be distilled to a simple set of powerful guiding principles. To start:
- Eat a variety of whole organic foods
- Minimize processing and intake of pre-packaged foods with more than 10 ingredients.
- Exchange “Fast Food” with “Slow Food” that is prepared at home
- Eat fresh foods grown locally and in season
- Drink plenty of clean water (unimprinted mountain spring water is best but filtered city water will do)
Not considering the individual’s unique chemistry and physiological needs, these guiding principles will form a strong foundation for clean, purifying nutrition.
As social beings, humans always form small groups of people around whom we spend the majority of our time. As conscious living beings, we are constantly projecting parts of ourselves onto those around us. What is being projected onto you by the people you spend the bulk of your daily hours with?
Chances are, if you are like most, that the people around you are conditioned by the negative influences of a faced paced, high stress modern society and are thus projecting onto you the issues and negativity that will naturally result.
Because of this, it may be to your benefit to create proper boundaries that limit others’ projections and help you buffer negative energies unconsciously projected by your friends, family, and co-workers. These basic tips will help create a healthy buffer against negativity:
- Focus on positive, uplifiting conversation
- Do not indulge in gossip
- Chat about good news rather than bad news
- Empathise without taking on other people’s pain
- Excuse yourself from negative conversations that cannot be transformed into positive
Where do you live? You most likely you already know that, depending on where you live, your energetic field might be continously bombarded by invisible and disruptive artificial electromagnetic fields produced by the modern technological marvels that run our society.
Smart phones, computers, tablets, wifi, bluetooth, power lines, cell phone towers, and countless more devices and appliances are constantly generating energetic fields that disrupt our own. Light pollution from artificial illumination, sound pollution from busy cities, air pollution from vehicles and industry, toxic clothing and personal care products all tax our health and wellbeing at all levels.
Some simple steps to mitigate damage and exposure to environmental pollutants and allow your body, mind and spirit to self cleanse, include:
- using natural hygiene products
- turning off all lights and electronic devices when going to bed
- visiting nature as often as possible
- wearing only natural fiber clothing against your skin
- grounding by being barefoot on earth.
The things we do for entertainment encompass all of the other categories, including food, people, and environment. The next time you think about fun, consider the people you are having fun with, the messages being transmitted to you through shows, music or movies and the quality of the foods you are taking. Are these things helping to raise your vibration and consciousness?
Instead of the mainstream sensory overload and subconscious media programming try these alternatives:
- Go for an invigorating hike or walk in nature.
- Chat with conscious, kindred spirits.
- Take a relaxing picnic with caring loved ones.
- Nuture your creativity through art and make something inspiring
- Read a book that will improve your life in some way
These are all powerful ways of cleansing, detoxing, and purifying one’s self on all levels in order to be the best possible healer and source of light and inspiration to others.
I would encourage you to take time on a daily basis to cleanse yourself physically, mentally, and energetically with gentle purifying practices. At least once yearly, treat yourself to deep cleanse and restorative personal experience such as our annual Mt Shasta Divine Starlight Retreat for healers.
