Sage is used in cleansing and clearing of energy. Used by the Native Americans and Shamans and becoming more popular by the general public. The smoke is meant to call up to the spirits in prayer and purify the energy of intention.
Which brings me to my topic this week “Energy Clearing”.
This is the majority of my work. When a client comes to see me I clear their energy. They are completely transformed and feel better than when they first arrived at my front door. After the session they generally ask “How do I clear my energy and keep myself protected in the future?”
There are many ways to clear your energy. Having yourself cleared by a energy worker is most effective. But learning tools and adding them to your day to day life is vital for keeping yourself vibrant and healthy!
As I mentioned in my previous post, “Raising your Vibration” is a start to keeping your energy clear because it keeps you vital and strong. Diet, exercise, plenty of sleep, and a good positive attitude, are all important to your well-being.
Many years back when I was apprenticing with my teacher, I was shown how to clear my energy, as well as that of other people and environments. The first thing he mentioned about keeping yourself clear and protected was grounding. I can still hear his voice with that authoritative tone, GROUNDING. And I might add he is right. If your head is in the clouds and not here and now with two feet on the ground, you are more receptive to allowing energies onto you. When we are grounded, we are connected, we have more life force which aides in a stronger frequency. Also we are less susceptible to “dramas” which are riddled with negatives!!
Now you hear what I’m talking about? We have choice in what we allow to come to us! If we are coherent and present less “stuff” is apt to get past our radar. This is the game, staying as conscious as possible. Which means a daily practice of a spiritual connection. Meditating, journaling, walking in nature, exercise or anything that clears the mind and calms the nervous system and begins to bring us into the present moment, is important for a balanced way of life.
The expression “go jump in the ocean” is one of the most sound pieces of advice anyone could give you. In all the Maori ceremonies they use the ocean in cleansing those negative forces that attach themselves to you. Whenever I would get any negatives stuck to me the first thing my teacher would say would be “Go to the Ocean”. I cannot explain to you in words why this works but trust me, it does.
Awareness is key. First we need the awareness that we are “off” or “not ourselves”. Prayer and intention are, for me, my most common tools. When used with absolute certainty and a genuine heart we can clear most energies. I won’t go into this too much but I do ask for “helpers” to guide and protect me with clearing. It really works and I still to this day am in awe of it!
Aligning yourself to positive people and situations is very important. Asking ourselves: “Why am I here?” “What is my intention in bringing myself to this situation?” The relationship department is the hardest one of them all and can be tricky. We have to be fully in our integrity with this. And there are plenty of blind and stubborn areas that don’t always want to move because we become attached or don’t want to take responsibility. But this is why we are here, we need to work through these dark areas. To make the choice towards the most positive result for ourselves.
Cocooning is one of the most powerful ways to protect yourself. This ancient technique was demonstrated to me by my teacher. It is a shield that you create around your auric field, to keep away unwanted energies. Since this requires some explanation, it is something I will be focusing on in my next workshop.
And now I want to talk about Neutrality – this is a state of mind, an equilibrium. Not a positive nor a negative, but a completely neutral space. Imagine the serene monk, with a clear, calm expression on his face. Not in the state of love nor the place of resistance. This is where you are untouchable. This, of course, takes years of practice.
I know there are several other things people use for protection. Stones, oils, crosses, sages, crystals, chanting, mantras and various other things. These are wonderful tools for setting your intention, but nothing is more powerful then”Knowing who we are” and standing fully in that. As it once was passed down to me the great wisdom of “I AM”!

“If I could get all my friends to Shari I would in a heartbeat. As a past healer-hopper I had tried them all but all I can say is Shari is the real deal. I have had such phenomenal experiences with her, you’d hardly believe it if I told you. It’s best to go see for yourself anyway. Believe me, you’d be doing yourself a favor. She channels some serious juice that can transmute deep fears and trauma that, who knows, you may have carried for lifetimes. At least I feel she did that with me. Very grateful that she is in my life.Thank you Shari! xoxo”
