Our auras can absorb negative energies depending on the personal circumstances that we find ourselves in. We can pick up negative energies from situations and also from the people around us. So cleansing our auras are a must if using magick. Hot Bath Have a hot bath with 3 tablespoons of sea salt or ? cup of baking soda. As you relax in the bath, imagine the water is penetrating all the layers of your aura, drawing out all the negativity and leaving it bright and cleansed. Hot Shower As the water washes down over your body, imagine the negative energy in your aura being washed and drained away. You should start to feel the brightness as the aura begins its cleansing. Walking in the Rain (my favourite) As in the shower, walking in the rain and imagining the negative energy in your aura being washed away brings wonderful results. Smudging the aura Use a smudge stick around your aura. If you can ask someone to do this for you it is more beneficial as they can walk completely around you.
Smudging is an ancient native American tradition which involves the burning of a sage or sweetgrass wand. Many cultures now use this method. The idea is that the smoke draws out the negative energy, and as the smoke clears it takes away the negativity and neutralises and purifies the aura. Brushing the aura White feathers can also be used to brush the aura in a similar way to the smudge stick. This can easily be done by flicking the feather all around your body in outward motions to brush away the negativity. The fingers can also be used in the same way, rather like a comb, brushing away the negative into the atmosphere. Imagine that all the little bits of negativity that you are brushing away is being swept into a container of any kind. When the container is full, imagine it going deep into outer space and emptied. This will then be neutralised within that time frame. Positive breathing Deep breathing is another good way of cleansing the aura. Choose a nice quiet place where you won't be disturbed.
Seat yourself comfortably. Take deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth. After a couple of minutes of deep breathing, imagine that you have a ball of pure white light above your head. Imagine this light becomes brighter, and you may even start to see gold within the light. Imagine this light growing larger and brighter and then bring it down slowly towards your head, allowing it to penetrate the aura and feeling the brightness and lightness of this beautiful light as it works its way down your body. You may feel a little light headed as the light moves through your body. This is normal and it will pass. Envision the light as it continues to move down your body and through the soles of your feet. Imagine then that you have roots beneath your feet and the negative energy is flowing down through these roots deep into the earth. The energy that has been drawn away will then be neutralised in mother earth. Now imagine the roots turn bright white, they may even sparkle with flecks of silver and gold. This is the pure clean energy you now imagine as it moves back up through the roots, up through the soles of your feet and into every part of your body, radiating outwards so that your whole aura is filled with this pure white light. When the light reaches the top of your head, allow it to move upwards into the material world. You should now feel totally revitalised. All the negativity in your energy field is sucked up as the light moves over your aura.
