Let’s talk about hygiene.
I specifically mean spiritual hygiene. It’s important to maintain a healthy spiritual practice.
I see a lot of people in other groups who ask about dark energies and seem to have a stream of bad luck. Quite often, they seem to think they’re hexed or something. The truth is, most witches worth their salt aren’t going to bother hexing someone just because we don’t like them.
What’s more likely is that the person experiencing all this darkness is not practicing proper spiritual hygiene. They may be the type to complain, but ignore advice or find every reason the advice can’t work. They don’t meditate unless it’s to do spells, and many don’t know what a spiritual cleansing bath is. The only time they ground and center is before or after a spell. These aren’t just assumptions, I’ve asked and advised people and this is what I’ve gathered.
The fact is, we live in a world that has a lot of light and a lot of dark. We have to be aware of both sides of that coin and maintain our spiritual energy properly. If you only clean your room once a year, you’re probably going to have a messy room. The same goes for our souls/spirits.
Personally, I recommend daily maintenance. Ground and center every day, cleanse and refresh your aura daily, and cleanse your Chakras (or your energy centers) regularly.
If you’ve been feeling disconnected or like you’re under some sort of dark cloud, chances are you haven’t been maintaining daily upkeep on your spiritual source. This leaves us open to exhaustion on more than just a physical level; this tires us out spiritually and mentally, as well. It’s important that we’re balanced on all of those levels.
So, how do we balance ourselves, Witchlings? How do you practice good spiritual hygiene? What is your favorite method? If you haven’t been doing regular cleansing and re-balancing, do you think it’s affected your practice in any way?
