How To Cleanse & Protect Your Aura

Cleanse your aura from “energy vampires” and protect your energetic field!

Hey Gorgeous Goddess,

Today I want to dive into yet another juicy article with you. In this article I’m giving you my personal tips on how to cleanse your aura and the tools you need to protect it from “energy vampires”. These simple, yet effective practices are life changing and I’m so excited to share these helpful tools with you! Let’s dive in…

What Is An Aura?

Have you ever noticed how much your mental, physical, and emotional state is affected by the people you surround yourself with and the environments you put yourself into? That is because your body is surrounded by an energy field that is referred to as your aura. It acts as a magnetic field of energy that picks up on the emotions, health and state of those around you. Your aura can be affected as you exchange energies with other people or the environment around you, which is why it is so important to cleanse this energetic field frequently and protect it well.

What Is An Energy Vampire?

An energy vampire is someone who drains your emotional energy. They feed on your willingness to listen and care for them, leaving you feeling exhausted and overwhelmed after an encounter with them. Energy vampires can be anyone from your spouse to your best friend, a family member, colleague or neighbour. It’s important to become aware of this toxic behaviour and then take inspired action. Equip yourself with the knowledge and tools you need to protect yourself from these energy suckers and support yourself through the experience, if and when you encounter one!

Let me give you an example… Recently I was catching up with a friend and about 2 minutes into our chat she started off-loading all her problems onto me. Immediately I could feel her negative energy pouring out all over me. She caught me off-guard and I certainly wasn’t prepared for that type of conversation. As she spoke, I could literally feel my body absorbing her negativity. The energy she brought with her triggered my flight or fight response and made me feel uncomfortable, anxious, stressed, and overwhelmed!

After my friend left, I did a mediation with deep belly breathing to help calm my nervous system and ground myself again. I journaled on it for quite a while but still felt the effects of this very unpleasant interaction with yes, an “energy vampire”. I was reminded how much my energetic state can be impacted by another’s and I started brainstorming all the ways I could cleanse my aura and how I could protect it in the future from “energy vampires”. Today I am sharing my favourite practices with you.

How I Personally Like To Cleanse My Aura

My absolute favourite way to cleanse my aura is to swim in the ocean. There is something so powerful about being completely immersed in nature. For me a dip in the ocean is like a full-body re-set and cleanse of my mental, physical, emotional and energetic state. It is seriously THE BEST detox ever!!!

Tips: You can also swim in a fresh water lake, cleanse under a waterfall, have an aura cleansing Goddess bath, use a sage stick around your home, diffuse lemon & lime essential oils and work with a selenite crystal to help cleanse your space of “dead energy”.

How I Protect My Aura

I love holistic health because there are so many resources and tools we can pull out to support ourselves naturally. When it comes to protecting my energetic field there are a couple of tools I personally like to use. If I know I’m catching up with an “energy vampire”, you’ll find me reaching for my essential oils and crystals! Before I leave the house to see them, I’ll put on a few drops of Tea Tree Oil and/or Frankincense, as they are both protective oils. I also like to work with Black Tourmaline, Obsidian and Labradorite Crystals. Sometimes I’ll wear a piece of jewellery that includes one of these crystals (it’s like placing a shield of protection over the heart chakra).

Tips: Make sure to cleanse your protective crystals regularly as they absorb a lot of negative energy. Cleansing them ensures that they don’t store low vibrational energy and makes them more effective and powerful for when you need them most!

Signs That You Need An Aura Cleanse

Over the years I have become very in-tune with my body and more conscious of my surroundings. I can immediately feel changes to my aura, whether they be positive or negative shifts. I thought I would share with you my personal red flags so that you can look out for these signs in your own life too.

  1. Feeling out of balance or unstable, physically, mentally, and emotionally.
  2. Feeling tired, low on energy or burnt out.
  3. Feeling angry, frustrated, stressed, tense, anxious, overwhelmed, or depressed.
  4. Feeling unsettled after spending time around an “energy vampire”.
  5. Feeling unsettled after being in a toxic, busy or loud environment.
  6. Feeling unwell and recovering slowly from illness.
  7. Feeling like my vibrations are low or I’ve lost my “mojo”
  8. Feeling unmotivated or uninspired, as if I have lost my creative energy.
  9. Struggling to fall asleep or waking between 2am-3am.

Encountering negative people and toxic environments is something that we can’t always control or avoid completely, but we can consciously minimise our expose to this. Use your tools, get out your supportive and protective oils and crystals, particularly if you know you’re catching up with someone who is typically an energy drainer and make sure to cleanse your aura so your energetic field is not compromised by their negative energy.

Huni, I hope this article has inspired you to cleanse your own beautiful aura today and protect it with the supportive tools I have shared with you. I can promise you that if you start to implement this into your life regularly, you will start to feel the positive effects of aura cleansing! Share this with your besties right now, to encourage them too!!! I want to spread the message of true health and happiness to as many people as possible and I would LOVE your help so get sharing!
