As human beings who are designed to be susceptible to the effects of our environment and other people, the issue of energy clearing is of paramount importance. The more sensitive you are, the more readily you will pick up and absorb the energies and moods of people, places, and other entities that may not serve you.
"Clearing" means releasing accumulated energy that we don't want or need. This undesirable energy may be our own (stress, anxiety, depression, jealousy, anger, loneliness, etc.) or it might come from outside of us.
Fortunately, there are many effective ways to clear energy, a few of which you may already be engaged in. The following is a list of some of the most popular energy clearing techniques:
-Expressing you thoughts and feelings, verbally or through writing, art, dance, etc
-Having a good cry
-Chakra clearing (Doreen Virtue has a good meditation CD for this)
-Communing with nature (including plants, trees and animals)
-Practicing forgiveness, acceptance, and gratitude. Making amends
-Listening to music; singing, toning, or chanting
-Clearing physical clutter
-Physical exercise (aerobic, yoga, tai chi, etc.)
-Releasing through grounding practices
-Crystals, aromatherapy, sea salt baths, etc.
-Overcoming/healing addictions, compulsions, and obsessions
-Native American or other rituals (sweating, burning sage, drumming, chanting)
-Past life (or life between lives) "regression" (Doreen Virtue has a good guided imagery CD for this)
