Spring Cleaning 101 (energetically speaking).
Spring is here and it brings with it all sorts of energies! Yay! As you may know, Mercury went direct this past Sunday, April 15th. As of the 17th, Saturn went retrograde. Many of us are also experiencing an array of ascension symptoms, as we start transitioning from 3D to 5D. This means that we are going to be dealing with a lot of stuff. That stuff is karma.
Saturn rules the sign of Capricorn, which of course, is my sun sign. Oh boy, have I already been feeling the affects of my planet going retrograde. My anxiety has come back out of the blue, in *kind of* full swing. This is because I am dealing with a lot of old things that need to be healed during this time. I mean, think about all the things I listed in the first paragraph. Woah. A lot is truly going on.
Saturn is also the ruler of karma for all. So yeah, you can see why this is important now. Saturn also rules our fears, our goals, and our discipline (among other things). This means that no matter where Saturn is in your chart, you will be experiencing things that have to do with the aforementioned. Saturn is retrograde for about 4 1/2 months. It goes direct on September 6th.
During this time, we will all be doing some intense inner work. So, to get you ready to begin dealing with your stuff, I thought it would be fun to share some cleansing techniques with you. Shall we begin?
My first recommendation when cleansing and detoxifying is always going to be sage. Sage is the number one cleanser of energy, in my book. It has the power to heal you of your stuff, and it also has the power to cleanse the energy in your home or any space, really. I try to sage multiple times a month. I usually do it on the weekends, as I am cleaning my house.
The best way to use sage, to me, is by cleaning your home first. Clean up your space, put everything where it belongs. Get it looking and feeling the way you like it. Then, once you have done this, put on some new age music (or any music that helps you relax and unwind), open the windows, and light that baby up!
I go around each room of my house, paying particular attention to the corners of the room, where I feel energy may be stored/stagnant. I also make sure to go over spots in the room that I feel may need some extra clearing. I sage my bed and ask Spirit to fill my relationship with love, health, and support. I wave sage over myself and my cats. I wave sage in closets, and even in the bathroom.
As I am walking through my home, with each new area or room that I enter, I say, “Spirit, Universe, my angels and guides: Please cleanse my home of all old or stagnant energies. Remove all energies and emotions that are no longer serving us.” Sometimes I add in, “Clear this room of any negative energies or dis-ease,” just to make sure nothing is lingering around that I don’t want. After I make these requests, I end with, “Fill this space with love and light. Help us to attract the things that will best support us as we follow our dreams.”
And I literally say this in every room and corner of the house.
You can modify yours to suit your needs. If someone was recently sick in your home, make sure you throw in that part about removing illness. If you have been having relationship problems, make sure you ask Spirit to fill your relationship with love and understanding. Hell, even if you don’t have a relationship problem, asking for more love could never be a bad thing.

My second recommendation for clearing your personal energy, or the energy of your home, is selenite. I have two selenite wands. One is rather large and the other is quite small. I have found that simply holding the selenite in my hands helps me to feel recharged. Having it in the home does the same thing. I tend to use my smaller wand when I need a quick pick-me-up. I use my large wand when I want to wave the energy around my body. I usually do this before meditation, or before doing a reading for a client.
Did you know that selenite can also cleanse and recharge your crystal collection? Place your crystals next to a selenite wand and this will keep their energy cleansed so that they are ready to help you out when you need them. This is a great thing to add to your spring cleaning routine!
My third recommendation for clearing your energy, helping you cope with stress, anxiety, and fear, and to get through the next few months of Saturn retrograde is the Bach Rescue Remedy. This is a blend of flower essences from Bach Flowers. I have been taking it a few times a day, a few times a week. I notice that nothing takes away the anxious ball of energy that sits in my solar plexus better than this remedy.
I got mine at a local health food store. But I found it on Amazon for cheaper. If you are interested in trying it for yourself, here is the link: Rescue Remedy Dropper.
Make sure that you read the label if you decide to purchase this. I use it by dropping four drops on my tongue, at least twice a day. Sometimes I skip a few days. I am trying to only use it when I really need it. However, it is safe to use daily.
Another way to take it, is by dropping four drops in a water bottle and drinking it throughout the day. This can be refreshing and it is nice to know that you have it with you. But keep in mind that it has a very herbal taste. I love the taste, but not everyone likes super herbal stuff. Maybe watering it down might be the best option for you if you don’t like the taste! Either way, I highly recommend it.
So there you have it, my tips for clearing your energy, cleansing your space, and healing your stuff. During this time, I highly recommend saging at least twice a month, if not more if you can. Energy is changing at a rapid pace, and a lot of old karma was already coming up. Now, with Saturn retrograde, it is coming up even more.
Remember to take care of yourself, get plenty of rest, and drink lots of water. I notice my appetite is changing too. I am not as attracted to foods that I used to love and this feels very weird for me. If you are experiencing this, please make sure that you find some foods that do sound good to you. Pay close attention to your body and give it what it needs. And please, get the RESCUE REMEDY. It helps so much!
Please contact me with any questions on how to use any of the items I mentioned. I would love to help!
