Fall Equinox Space Clearing with Copal, Archangel Michael & Grounding
Posted by : Mary Wutz /
A great way to prepare for a new shift in seasonal energy is to clean house: Physically, Mentally, and Emotionally.
Removing clutter from corners, bookshelves or counters, collecting things for which you no longer have use, and giving your living space a deep physical cleaning is a beneficial way to be in the flow with the next wave of energy from the seasonal shift.
Energetically, many of us already know that burning sage is a great way to clear stagnant or unwanted energy from a physical space, but some other plants that I like to use (depending on the day) are Palo Santo, Frankincense and Copal.
Personally, I feel that using Copal Resin/sap has the deepest clean feeling to me. I reserve this resin/sap for seasonal shifts in energy or when I’ve had a really “dirty” houseguest. The resin that is used for burning comes from the Copal tree, which is native to central Mexico. These medicinal trees are sacred to the Mayas and were traditionally used for clearing the body of diseases and also to keep mosquitos away.
Another way I like to energetically clean is with the help of Archangel Michael. I simply close my eyes, ask Archangel Michael to clear any negative energies that are not of divine light and love from my house and auric field. I then visualize or sometimes actually see his periwinkle light engulfing the entire space of which I’m clearing, and sucking up any lower vibrating energies that do not have my highest good in intention kind of like a vacuum cleaner.
Finally, like the icing on a cake, I like to seal my space with a grounding prayer. For the last couple of years my favorite plant to work with in term of grounding energy is Cedar. I will inhale a few drops of Cedar, or place Cedar E.O. into my home diffusor and prayer to the spirit of cedar to ground my home and myself and help to keep my feet firming rooted into the earth. I then connect with the spirit of Cedar, or do meditation like the following from Nancy Levenson:
Give over your impulse to control anything now and release to gravity
Where are you on planet earth this very moment?
What does that even mean for you?
How can the earth be intelligent?
What is intelligence after all?
And, as you lie here see small roots begin to release from your back and drop deep into the earth
How does it feel?
Can you sense grounding and stability?
