After a long day of working hard, we benefit from the refreshment and relaxation of a nice shower or soothing bath. The same therefore applies to our energy tools used in therapy treatments. Cleansing is an important aspect of any treatment session both for the client and therapist but also for the tools that are used. Tools may range from crystals and silks to musical instruments and flower essences. This article will focus on cleansing your silks however many of these techniques can be utilised to cleanse a wide range of energy tools.
There are many different methods of cleansing your silks, from the physical hand wash to the energetic waves of sound from Tingsha bells or a singing bowl. We will describe a few methods here.
Breath – This method is completed by sending healing breath into the silks. This method involves visualisation, literal breath and the intent to cleanse.
Aromatic scents – This method involves burning herbs, plants or incense known for their clearing and protective qualities. An example of this would be burning dried sage. The burning smoke can be wafted over the silks, again adding intent that the scent and smoke clear the silks. Please be aware that not all of your clients may like these scents so choose with care.
Crystal cleansing - This method involves placing a self cleansing crystals such as Citrine on top of the silks with the intent to cleanse. The crystal should be left in place until you feel the task has been completed. You can also programme a quartz crystal specifically for the job or cleansing. This would become a very powerful tool but don’t forget to cleanse the crystal too!
Moonlight - This method involves leaving the silks in the light of the moon, intending for the lunar energies to cleanse and revitalise the silks. Different phases of the moon can be utilised for greater effects such as the waning moon used for a deep cleanse and the waxing or full moon used to revitalise the healing energy of the silks.
Sunlight – This method is not recommended for our silks as some of the dyes (especially the blues) are not as light fast as the other shades.
Wind – This method involves wafting the silks or leaving them on a washing line in the wind intending that the wind element clears and transmutes any non positive energies that are left on the silks. Take care with the amount of direct sunlight they might be exposed to aiming to avoid any fading.
Sound – This method employs sound to cleanse the silks. This could be the sound emitted from a tuning fork, Tingsha bell or singing bowl. You could instead chant or tone into your silks. Mantras such as Om are very powerful and easy to remember!
Reiki – This method asks you to simply charge the silks with reiki until they feel cleansed and revitalised.
Flower essences – This method is similar to aromatic scents where the energy of plants are used to cleanse the silks. Flower essences have the advantage of being scentless and are very powerful. Spraying above the silks with a clearing and cleansing essence is all you need to do.
Intent - This method is the simplest of all but does require that your mind has clarity and full faith in its ability to manifest. You must focus your mind so that you see, feel and hear that the silks are cleansed and revitalised. Practise makes perfect with this method!
Angelic assistance – This method calls upon the support of the angels to cleanse and revitalise your silks. You may call forth Archangel Raphael the angel for healing or even Archangel Michael to transmute any non-positive energies. You could keep it even simpler and ask for the cleansing and revitalising angels to help prepare your silks for their next client. Just remember to say thank you.
