It feels important at this stage to give you some ideas about keeping your energies clean. We all pick up energetic debris, as we pick up dirt as we go about our daily lives. Our bodies need washing; so, too, does our energy field.

An Epsom salt bath is a classic way to clean your field. Lay in the bath for about 20 minutes, into which two handfuls of salts have been dissolved. This is equally effective in the shower. Starting from the feet, use a handful or two and scrub your body, paying particular attention to the chakra centers. Intention is important here. If you’re in a hurry, just use a smidge on each chakra center. Rinse thoroughly; these are salts and if left to dry on your skin you’ll itch. During times of intense effort, this can be done daily. Otherwise, once a week or so is fine.

Using a sage bundle is also an option. Light the end of it, and use the resultant smoke from the bottom of your feet to the top of your head. (Yes, it smells like pot.) You can find sage bundles at most alternative bookstores. Kitchen sage is also fine, though leaf is preferable to rubbed. Light a small batch of it in a fire-safe bowl or plate, and proceed as above. Doing this in a hotel room is not recommended; you could set off a fire alarm with the smoke.

If you’re doing intense work with the public, you might consider wearing a small quartz crystal. Clear quartz is best for this purpose. The crystal will absorb a lot of negativity. Cleanse it daily by holding it under running water.
