Juice cleanse. Check. Yoga, a little meditation and daily journalling – triple check.
We’ve been intentional about transitioning to the new fall season, but are still feeling a little lingering mental and emotional negativity that needs clearing and love these two rituals from crystal healer, Heather Askinosie of Energy Muse for just that.
Rituals with crystals? Just remember, these kinds of exercises are all about you and what you’re thinking, how you’re feeling – adding the crstyals to the equation just helps amplify it all. Speaking out loud to ourselves might be a little unorthodox, but it just helps keep our intentions “crystal” clear!
As the seasons change and we move from summer into fall, it’s the perfect time to take nature’s lead and initiate change in our lives. Allowing yourself the space for inner reflection helps you to identify what limiting thoughts or habitual patterns keep you stuck. The more honest you can be with yourself, the easier it will be for you to break down the layers and break through the walls so you can embrace who you really are.
Fall celebrates change. Your bikinis are placed toward the back of your drawers and your boots come out of the closet as the weather begins to change. As the air becomes crisper and cooler, it’s important to remember to breathe even deeper. Through breath, we tap into an inner voice that says, “This year is coming to an end soon. What can I let go of now to shift, transform and evolve?” This is where your crystals come into play!
Black tourmaline will be your crystal ally to help you become aware and mindful of what no longer serves you (negativity, anger, fear, hurt, blame, etc.) so that you can consciously let go and allow a new energy to take that space. It’s very important to cleanse, purify and release all toxic, negative and unwanted energy from your home and energy body to keep yourself vibrating at your highest self. Once you have released this lower vibrational energy from your space, mind and body, you will feel clearer, focused and centered.
Are you ready to release any limiting thoughts to rid yourself of any negative mindsets? These two black tourmaline crystal rituals will purify and clear your mind, body and soul!
This fall, be a catalyst of change. Let go of what no longer serves you to awaken your highest potential!
Black Tourmaline Purification Bath
3 black tourmaline crystals
1 box of baking soda
4 instant coffee bags
2 cups sea salt
a sage stick to smudge yourself, your home and your bathroom
Smudge your body with sage. Ask that the spirit of the sage purify, cleanse and release any unwanted energy from your energy field now. (Make sure to have windows and doors open so that any negative and unwanted energy can be released.)
Next, smudge your black tourmaline crystals, asking that all impurities and unwanted energies be released from them now. Now, hold all three crystals in your hands and program them by saying: I program these black tourmaline crystals for purification, protection and releasing negativity. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Now, smudge your bathroom. Ask that the spirit of the sage purify, cleanse and release any unwanted energy from your space now.
Fill up the bathtub with water. Add your three black tourmaline crystals, baking soda, coffee bags and sea salt. State out loud your intention for the bath. It could be something like: I release anything that no longer serves me. I release any stuck or blocked energy and all low vibrational energy now.
Get in your bath and soak for 11 to 21 minutes, submerging your head under the water throughout so you are cleansing every part of your body. Feel free to say prayers, clear your mind and let go of any limiting beliefs while soaking in the water.
When you are done unplug the drain, and see all your unwanted energy going down the drain.
Place the three tourmaline crystals outside in the sun to be recharged and energized for 8 hours and throw away the coffee bags.
Black Tourmaline and Selenite Body Grid
A quick and easy body crystal grid for when you want to give yourself an energetic reset
3 black tourmaline crystals
1 selenite crystal
Lie down on your bed or a flat surface, like a yoga mat.
Place 1 black tourmaline in the palm of each hand. Place the third black tourmaline below your feet, between your legs. Place the selenite vertically down the middle of your chest.
Start to breathe in for 7 seconds and then breathe out for 7 seconds. Repeat for three rounds.
State out loud anything you want to release, cleanse or let go of from your life. See this energy being absorbed into the 3 black tourmaline crystals. Continue to state out loud anything you want to let go of until you feel as if you have said everything you need to say.
Now, shift your focus to the selenite on your chest. Visualize white light emitting out from the crystal and filling your entire body with healing, loving light. This light is now being absorbed into every cell of your being. State out loud with conviction words that describe the magnificent person that you are. Allow this change to vibrate all around and within you. This is who you are.
When you feel complete, stand up and shake off any residue energy.
Place the crystals outside for 8 hours to recharge and re-energize.
