There are all kinds of energy clearing techniques out there. The key is to choose the one that resonates with you the most.
Even if clearing negative energy sounds too woo-woo, the techniques do help to concentrate your attention on a certain problem so the best solution can be found. Your energy flows where your attention goes and since everything is energy, it might be a good idea to use energy clearing techniques at least once in a while.
Certain astrological events like an eclipse (e.g. Super Blue Blood Moon that will be happening on the 31st of January) can enhance the power of these techniques. The time of an eclipse is perfect for letting go negative energy blocks, so you can generate new energy and improve the quality of your life.
Getting Ready for an Energy Clearing
In a sense, an energy cleansing technique is like a self-guided meditation. You apply your visualization ability, creating certain images in your mind, which allows you to interact with the energy-informational field. The results you get from performing an energy clearing self-guided meditation depend on your skill, which you can learn and improve by vividly imagining a given scenario (e.g. seeing yourself under a white stream of light, cutting the cords, etc).
There are several ways to enhance energy clearing techniques. You can get really good results if you involve a symbol or a combination of four commonly used elements for energy cleansing: Earth, Water, Fire or Air (see How Astrology Elements Can Improve Your Meditation).
Even though you often remove a lot of negative energy without even knowing about it through your daily routine, you can get much better results if you consciously perform one of the energy clearing techniques during the time of the eclipse.
Salt and crystals represent the Earth element while water clears negative energy when you are taking a bath or a shower. Scented sticks and sages embody the Air element and Fire element is enacted through a burning flame of a candle.
Using a beeswax candle
A burning beeswax candle, however, can symbolize all four elements at once. Earth element is represented through the body of the candle, melted wax is a symbol of water, smoke from the candle is air and candle flame obviously stands for the fire.
Beeswax works much better than generally used paraffin wax, which is a byproduct of petroleum production. It is a more natural material and it has a high-frequency vibration.
The qualities of beeswax make it a great energy-informational conductor for recording a thought-form or your intentions (just like Dr. Masaru Emoto experiments, except here you have beeswax instead of water, see also: How to Make a Wish Come True with a Powerful Manifestation Technique). It is probably one of the main reasons why candles are used in many different religions.
Performing an energy clearing
All you have to do to start an energy clearing process with a beeswax candle is to put it in a candleholder on the table in front of you. Have a conversation with a candle and ask it to remove negative energy. It might sound weird, but all that you are doing is charging the candle with your words.
When you light up a candle, you start the energy cleansing process empowered by all four elements. The burning candle removes negative energy from everything and everyone around it. Thus, you also clear your energy, as long as you are around the candle. Please make sure to follow fire hazard instructions when burning the candle inside a house.
Burning beeswax candle simply helps you concentrate your attention and your energy at the point of here and now. If you gaze at the candle flame, you could reach a meditative state much quicker, relax, silence your inner dialogue, get rid of anxiety and even reach new states of awareness.
It is also important not to hold certain emotions inside if they begin to rise up. Just let yourself live through an emotion and if you feel like crying then don’t hold yourself back. Allow the candle to “burn away” the negative energy blocks that are in the way of realizing your full potential (see also: How Finding Your Life Path Number Can Help You Discover Your Full Potential).
You can also try colored candles for different purposes and there are ways to analyze how the candle is burning to know where the negative energy is coming from.
You might find useful to look for guidance if you are new to energy clearing techniques or want to learn more advanced practices. However, you have to remember that you are the one who holds all the answers to the questions you have.
Any type of energy cleansing ritual or meditation can only help you eliminate negative energy and the noise from the communication channel with your own true or higher self. When you have a clear connection with your true self, you always have the energy you need as well as the intuitive knowing of what you need to do next in order to realize your purpose.
