How To Cleanse Your Aura of Negative Energy

energy cleansing

An aura is the energetic field that surrounds your body. It’s not uncommon for your auric field to get weak when you pick up on other people’s negative emotions and energy. It is often influenced by the people you interact with and the situations you find yourself in.

Aura cleansing is a set of techniques used to remove this negative energy from the body so that you can feel refreshed, energized, and vibrant. In this guide, I’ll show you how to cleanse your aura of negativity, allowing you to increase your power of attraction and become the best version of yourself.

How To Remove Negative Energy From Your Aura

Repeat Positive Affirmations and Mantras

positive affirmations and mantras

Positive affirmations and mantras are the easiest and fastest ways to cleanse your aura. You can recite affirmations to yourself anywhere, at any time, and with no preparation.

Simply choose an affirmation and recite it out loud, allowing yourself to truly feel the power of the words you are saying. You may need to repeat the phrase several times to gain the intended effects.

Continue repeating it for a few days, coming back to it as often as you need to. You can even write the phrase on a sticky note to put on your refrigerator, mirror, or desk, so you are reminded of it often.

Visualize Your Aura

Visualizing your energy field with aura readings will allow you to get in touch with your spiritual energy. Create a quiet, comfortable place where you will not be disturbed. You might find it helpful to do a short meditation to relax first. Then, spend about 15-20 minutes focusing on your breath as you form a vibrant white light in your mind and allow it to spread through and around your body.

Keep focusing on the light until it radiates through every part of your body. You should feel calm and connected to your aura by the end of this exercise.

Practice Smudging

Smudging is one of the best aura cleansing techniques to heal and clean your energy field.  Smudging is the practice of burning herbs to cleanse your aura. Different herbs serve to heal and cleanse different things. Here are a few you might try:

  • White Sage: This herb is one of the most popular to use for smudging as it works to clear all negative energies, regardless of the source
  • Thyme: Another popular herb, thyme works to heal past traumas and the negative emotions associated with them
  • Cedar: Use cedar to eliminate fears and inspire courage
  • Palo Santo: This herb works to heal your aura actively
  • Mugwort: Use mugwort when your intuition needs a boost
  • Coastal Sage: Actively repair tears in your aura with this herb

Create a quiet, sacred space where you will not be disturbed before the ritual begins. Encourage the smoke to swirl around your body and head as you focus on healing. The smoke is also useful to cleanse the space around you for a more positive living environment.

Protect Your Energy

Creating a protection bubble around your aura puts you in control of what energies can affect it throughout the day. Take time in the morning to relax and visualize a divine white light coming down from a higher power. Allow that light to connect with your body and surround you with protection.

Avoid Negative People

We absorb and internalize the energy others put into the world. For this reason, surrounding yourself with negative people can take a toll on your aura as you take in that negativity. Prolonged exposure to negative people will drain your spirit, leaving you feeling tired, stressed, and not yourself.

The simplest solution is to avoid spending time with negative people as much as possible. If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot avoid them, take some time to cleanse and heal your aura as soon as possible to avoid any cumulative effects.

Cleanse Your Mind of Negative Thoughts

Another aura cleansing technique is to clear your mind of negative thoughts.  Make time to reflect on your thoughts from time to time. Are there any negative patterns that keep popping up? If so, do your best to remove pessimistic thoughts that are bringing you down. You need to choose to focus on the positive.

Of course, you are only human, and you are bound to have bad days or find yourself in situations that bring your spirits down. Allow yourself to feel these emotions, but you do not want to stay fixated on them. Then, make an effort separate from any negativity.

Remove Energy Blockages

Blockages suppress your energy from flowing naturally and shining brightly. You will find that blockages leave you feeling tired, sluggish, apathetic, and prone to procrastination. Connect with a healer who can identify and remove your energy blockages and realign you with your spirit. You will be surprised at how much a quick session can improve your auric field.

Take a Spiritual Bath

Taking a spiritual bath is an effective aura cleansing method.  Spiritual baths can consist of herbs, essential oils, sea salt, and plants.  First, create a serene environment so you can focus on your cleansing intention. Then, fill the bathtub with warm water and the oils or herbs of your choice. As you soak, picture your aura being cleansed and repaired.

Try some of these herbs in your nest spiritual bath:

  • Lavender: Add the essential oil or lavender buds to enhance relaxation and restore your aura
  • Sage: This herb serves to heal all parts of your aura and eliminate negative energy
  • Rose: The petals or essential oils of a rose plant promote love and positivity
  • Citrus: Citrus oils from lemon, lime, or bergamot fruit will energize your aura, leaving you feeling refreshed and restored

Use essential oils or herbs that match the current needs of your auric field. Consistent spiritual baths may lead to more noticeable results.

Create Crystal Grids

Crystal grids allow you to clean the aura and direct energy toward a specific intention, such as healing. You will need to select crystals and arrange them in a geometric grid-like pattern. They can be placed on a bed, on your body, or the floor on a sheet or cloth.

Select one crystal to be your center and then arrange the other crystals to surround it. Visualize energy flowing out from the center crystal to the others as you focus on your intention to cleanse your aura.

The types of crystals you can use for this ritual vary. When you intend to cleanse your aura, you should consider using:

  • Clear Quartz
  • Amethyst
  • Selenite
  • Rose Quartz
  • Citrine
  • Black Tourmaline

Each of these crystals can play a powerful role in healing your aura and protecting it from future damage.

Use Essential Oils

essential oils

Essential oils do not need to be used in a bath to have a positive effect on your aura. You have many ways to use oils throughout the day to cleanse, heal, and protect your energy. Mixing some drops of an essential oil into a carrier oil, such as coconut or vegetable oil, is one of the best uses. Apply this mixture to your wrists, neck, or temple.

You can also use a diffuser to allow the scent of the oil to spread through your room. Do this during meditation or other healing rituals to enhance the effect.

Final Thoughts

Making time to cleanse your aura will allow you to feel your best. You will find that when your aura is cleansed and radiant, you find it easier to gain what you desire and feel at peace. Practice these techniques often to ward off negative energy and protect your aura from damage.
