After the clearing out

This is one of the cleansing rituals that works for me. I'm telling you all about it as Julie asked for details. We've both been having a good clear out of all the rubbish from our writing spaces but cleaning and clearing aren't always enough to get rid of the negativie vibes.

I use these tiny dishes, one for each corner. They contain the elements of air, fire earth, and water. I use salt for earth, a candle for fire and this morning a leaf fell into my hand so I'm classing that as air. After cleaning my room I place one dish in each corner. Light the candle and leave for an hour or more. It always works for me.

Other methods are -

Using a mister filled with water and a few drops of your favourite aromatherapy oil. Spray around the room.

Light some incense. Walk around the room leaving a trail of perfumed smoke.

Shift energies by clapping, putting a wind chime near an open window or ringing a bell.

I know this isn't going to be suitable for everyone and I was a bit dubious about posting it, and then I thought why not share my methods. After all there are no negative vibes in my writing room. And I happen to love little rituals like these.

    With a few more positive rituals like yours, the world beyond our 'writing rooms' would no doubt be a better place.

    Happy new year!

  2. Thanks, Lynne

    I like the ringing of a bell one and earth, fire and water. I'll give them a go.

  3. They sound good :) Thanks for posting them

  4. That's interesting, because when I have a clear out, I use a skip. That's where I've been going wrong!

    Happy New Year and may 2010 full of positive vibes only!

    It's nice to be able to give a room a different feeling. And how we feel does affect our writing. Thanks for sharing
