Energetic Care & Practices
This post is a follow up to last week’s Energetics Are Everything. I suggest you read that first if you haven’t already 🙂 In this post, I want to dig deeper into energetics by sharing my own energetic beliefs and care, as well as sharing some energetic practices that you may find useful, especially if you’re new to this type of work.
As I mentioned in my blog post last week, I am by no means an expert in energetics. I can only share my current knowledge, beliefs, and practices. Please feel free to take what resonates with you and leave the rest behind.
My daily energetic practices revolve around the auric field and the seven chakras.
The aura is one of the layers of energy that is closest to our physical body. The chakras are energy points in the body, starting at the base of the spine and extending up to the crown of the head, that correlate to certain physical, mental, and emotional attributes. Some people work with the basic seven chakras, others with eleven, and others with 114. For now, as an energetic newb, I work with the seven main chakras.
My physical body and energetic body, particularly my aura, chakras, and connection to source/spirit, are what I personally refer to as my sacred channel. It’s part of my daily routine to practice energetic hygiene and cleanse and recalibrate my sacred channel.
My Energetic Hygiene Practice AKA Cleansing My Sacred Channel
I do this every morning and again in the evening before I go to bed.
Step 1: Cord Cutting – I stand with my feet firmly planted on the ground and then cut energetic cords. I hold my hands up in front of me, palms facing my body, and do karate chop motions all around my body. I pay special attention to the area around my head, ears, throat, and heart. As I’m doing this, I envision that I’m cutting energetic cords that may be connected to me in the moment as a way to release what I no longer need to carry or feel.
Step 2: Grounding & Tapping Into Higher Energy – Once I take care of any active energetic cords or leaks, I focus on grounding myself to the earth while also opening my channel to tap into source, spirit, and my higher energy. First, I envision energetic roots extending from the soles of my feet and down into the center of the earth. Then I envision the four elements–earth, fire, air, water–infusing my roots with their own energy. Next I breathe in deeply as I pull that elemental, earth energy up through my roots and into my body, all the way up to the crown of my head. Then I ask to connect to the universe, source, spirit, and my higher self and picture that connection as golden/white light that fills the crown of my head before flowing down my body and through the roots of my feet.
Step 3: White Light Cleanse – Once I’m grounded and tuned into to source/spirit, it’s time to call on the white, loving light of the universe and source to cleanse and recalibrate my sacred channel. I’ll grab my selenite crystal tower and hold it to the crown of my head, and one of my selenite hearts and hold it to my heart, calling on the white light and breathing it in deep before I picture it washing over my body, cleansing me (and my energy/aura) from head to foot. I’ll do that body cleansing deep breath two more times. Then I take a deep breath and envision absorbing the healing white light through the selenite crystal at my heart and letting it fill every cell and fiber of my being (both physically and energetically). Then I do a deep exhale to release that breath and energy, and my sacred channel is cleansed!
Since this practice is a bit more in depth, I like to bookend my day with it, as I mentioned. However, sometimes throughout the day, I may need to do a quick grounding, cord cutting, or energetic cleanse. You can be flexible with your practices and routines. You don’t need to follow an in-depth routine, step by step, in every moment. Figure out what feels good for you, and once something starts to feel boring or stale, experiment and shake things up until you find a practice that resonates with you.
I’m also a fan of professional energy healing for energetic care and well-being. I like to book a monthly appointment with my energy healer, usually waiting until the day before to feel into the type of session I want to experience. My practitioner does a lot of hands on energy healing that includes working with the divine and angels. Some of my favorite types of energy work include Turaya Touch and reiki.
I can honestly say that learning about energetics and creating daily energetic practices has changed my life. I feel so much more in tune with myself, and it also gives me a sense of empowerment. I think sometimes it’s easy to just go with feeling crappy and spiraling into negativity, scarcity, or whatever the case may be, but you don’t need to be a victim to your circumstance or current way of being.
You can literally shift your thoughts and experience by simply shifting your energy.
It’s a total game changer!
