We cleanse and detox our body because we know how important good health is and how amazing it makes us feel. But what about cleansing and detoxing our mind? What about all the toxic thoughts, conditioning, and programming that have built up over the years?

There’s no real benefit in drinking green juices to fuel your body and then filling your mind up with negativity, jealousy, judgment, anger, or rage. There’s no real benefit in filling yourself up with kale chips and all healthy greens and then self-destructing with negative thinking, alcohol, or drugs. There’s no real benefit in going to the gym every day to be strong and then letting others abuse you and walk all over you.

What good are any of these things doing if your mind is not functioning at an optimal level; and you don’t feel love for yourself; and you don’t live a predominantly positive, happy, and peaceful life?

If you want to create change and move forward in your life you MUST work on your mind. A healthy mind leads to a healthy, happy, and confident YOU!

spell: cleansing the body of negative energy.
  • clear the mind and light a white candle (representative of positive energy), speaking the following incantation: “Mother Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Spirit, I ask thee to cleanse my body of all negative energies”.
  • light a black candle (representative of negative energy), saying the same thing.
  • light a green candle (representative of healing), speaking the following incantation: “Mother Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Spirit, I ask thee to free and heal my body from all negative forces. Blessed be!”
  • sit back, keeping the mind clear, for fifteen minutes, after which time you should feel renewed and fresh.

At least once every month I sage where ever I am living. In this picture I am using white California sage. This process is called; smudging.

Smudging is a spiritual cleansing of negative energies. I don’t consider this ritual to be religious because my spirituality is personal and what I make it to be. Its my own. Smudging has a religious background which I fully respect but do not call myself religious.

You must first ground yourself by calling all your energy back to you… Imagine your feet as roots planting themselves firmly in the ground.

Light the sage and begin to waft the smoke around the rooms of your home, cleansing specific objects as well.

To help stay focused you can say; “I cleanse this room of any impurities and anything that does not support the people who live here”.

After, all the rooms are done I give myself a sage bath, making sure the smoke swirls completely around my body and the bottoms of my feet.

I am left feeling refreshed, positive, and at peace.

Love to you all ❤️

Goddess of the Day: May 29

Sulis - Healing Goddess of Britain.  Worship of Sulis was widespread throughout Britain, Rome, and Celtic lands.  Though she is a solar deity, Sulis rules elemental water and aids in healing diseases and ailments.  She rules purification and the healing of the mind, body and spirit.

(text from Brandi Auset, The Goddess Guide)

Throughout every day, we have the opportunity for mindfulness and meditation. Often, the best opportunities hide within the most mundane tasks. When we perform regular tasks like taking a shower or bath, we often fall into an autopilot state. This apathy and detachment from the present moment is something that does not serve our spiritual practice, as it disconnects us from the very experience of living. Showers might not be the most enticing part of our lives, but they can be a wonderful experience of bodily care and sensory engagement. 

For the full blog (and a lot more information), you can click here. If you just want the exercise, then I’ve copied that over below!


  • Make sure to find a time where you don’t have to rush your shower. Although you may end up taking less time as a result of this exercise, you might also move slower and with more care and expand the time you shower or bathe. You want to give yourself ample time to relax into this experience.
  • After undressing, pay a quick moment’s attention to your body, perhaps the slightly sticky post-sleep sweaty feeling, a mild aroma before you shower, grime from the day, or whatever else your body offers. Reflect on why you are choosing to wash yourself right now. Close your eyes and sense these, then thank your body for its natural processes.
  • Before starting the shower, reflect on the source of water and how the element reaches your bathroom. Visualize its path from your local lake/reservoir, imagine it flowing into city pipes, up into your shower’s pipes and out of the shower-head.
  • After you start your shower and climb in, focus on your body and how it reacts to temperature. Then, as you begin to wash, pay extra attention to the sensation of soap and water on your skin.
  • Use your hands to wash yourself, rather than a cloth. It’s more intimate and forms a deeper connection between your mind and body.
  • Move slowly as you wash, giving each part of your body much-deserved attention and gratitude.
  • If you have a spot on your body that you are not happy with, whatever that means to you, pay extra attention to it and thank your body as you wash it for containing this individual trait. Recognize your uniqueness and the power in your human form to be completely different than any other being on this planet.
  • Regard yourself as a spiritual being washing your human body that hosts you. We are all, ultimately, consciousness incarnated.
  • Don’t worry too much about how aware you remain throughout the entire shower. Just keep returning to sensation and a state of presence when you get distracted by mental activity.
  • Water is naturally cleansing, so allow this effect to grip you. If it aids you to visualize the water from the shower-head as a stream of bright white healing light, add this to the exercise.
  • Know that water can and will wash away pains, stress, and clean you on a spiritual and a physical level. It’s a much more passive version of an intentional Pranayama meditation.
  • After you shut off the water, before grabbing your towel, bring your awareness to the sensation of water on your body as it drips off and cools you down through evaporation. Once again, bring thanks to the water the earth supplied you.
  • As you dry off, similarly pay attention like you did while washing yourself. How does the towel feel different? How does your body itself feel different after the shower? What about your mind and emotional self?

You can easily adapt this for a bath, just by changing your visualization of the water source a little differently. With a bath, you can imagine the water, when the tub is full, glowing a with a bright and healing white light that comforts and sustains you as you bathe. It’s almost as if you get to bathe in this light itself!

Feel free to comment on the original blog, check out the website, or send me any asks you wish on tumblr. :)

Before going to bed each night, ask Archangel Michael to clear and cut away any negative or lower based energies that might have attached to you during the day. Then ask Archangel Raphael to fill you with green healing light. Use you imagination to feel this green healing light flow through your entire body and fill your heart to overflowing. This is a powerful healing experience!

Burning Herbs to Heal & Cleanse – How to Make Your Own Smudge Stick

Smoking with plants is a cleansing ritual performed by communities across the world. In Native American communities, herbs are burned to heal and cleanse the mind, body and spirit, and incense, aromatic plant material bound with a combustible base, is traditionally used for similar reasons in many Christian, Buddhist and other religious and medicinal ceremonies.

Belinda Evans shares her easy way of making a smudge stick, on The Plant Hunter.

Cleansing Potion

hey so I bet many of you have been within a situation where you need a quick cleansing to refresh your mind, body, and spirit but don’t have either the time or fancy ingredients to whip up a high class potion. Well here’s a simple way to construct a “kitchen witch” potion for cleaning up any negative and dark energy on yourself within minutes.


~rainwater (spring water works too. not. purified)

~lemon (whether it be juice from a bottle or actual lemon slices) *organic is always nice

~salt or quartz crystals


~sage (for protection against negativity that could be added back onto you after the potion) *optional

pour your rainwater into a glass cup (plastic is okay but glass amplifies it a lot better), slide in yo lemon, sprinkle in your salt or drop in your crystals (wash the crystals before inserting to not only clean them, but spiritually cleanse them), add in your sage *still optional, and bathe it under the sunlight for a few seconds before sipping.

Certain people like to cast circles, gather the power of intention, and add in their own personal light and energy into the potion which in turn does advance the potion and make it work better for the specific individual but it’s totally up to you if you want to take it to that extent or not. Good luck! ~Jo

I don’t mind crying. I used to try to hold back tears and build a dam to trap my feelings, but it’s not worth it. It’s not worth having all of this sadness bottled up, just waiting to be shaken a little too much the wrong way, only to explode. The pressure is too much. Sometimes crying just hurts, but inevitably, things start to get better. Crying cleanses the mind, body, and soul.
