Elemental Energy Clearing
As summer nears its close in the sign Virgo, here's how working with the natural elements can help you clear any stagnant, residual energy.
The balmy days of summer are gradually yielding to the crisp embrace of autumn and the sun is journeying through the meticulous sign of earthy Virgo. This period is where nature herself offers a wealth of wisdom and opportunity. It's a time to harness the innate and esteemed qualities of Virgo—precision, organization, and practicality (plus, Mercury is also in retrograding through Virgo and so also revision)—and align them with the natural elements to embark on a journey of energetic renewal. In this blog, we'll explore how working with these elemental forces can help you release stagnant, residual energy, allowing you to step into the coming season with clarity and vitality.
Water has long been revered as the source of all life, a symbol of the depths of consciousness, and its spiritually cleansing properties. It is foundational to many ritual practices, from river baptisms to spiritual washes infused with herbs for baths or home cleaning. The use of water to cleanse energy and release any negative or stagnant emotions is essentially ancestral as what was once a bathhouse is now a spa. When used for spiritual baths where specific herbs, oils, or crystals are added, the energetic or healing properties are infused into the water. These baths are believed to not only cleanse the physical body but also purify the aura and restore balance to the energy field. Additionally, water can be charged with intention and used for energetic cleansing by creating a sacred space, such as linen and room spray. This can also be done by placing a bowl of water in a room and setting the intention for it to absorb any negative or stagnant energy present. You can amp up your ritual by adding a Rose of Jericho plant. Once the water has muddied from energy abosrption, it can then be discarded, symbolically taking away the unwanted energy. Overall, water serves as a versatile and potent tool for energy clearing, allowing individuals to release and purify their energy, creating a sense of renewal and balance.
The element of fire is believed to possess transformative and purifying qualities, making it effective in releasing negative energies and promoting spiritual cleansing. By harnessing the energy of fire, individuals can create a sacred space where they can let go of emotional baggage, stagnant energy, and any blockages that may be hindering their spiritual growth. Whether through the use of candles, bonfires, or smudging rituals, fire is seen as a catalyst for change and renewal, allowing individuals to connect with their inner selves and invite positive energy into their lives. A flickering flame and the warmth of fire are not only visually captivating to the mind making it easier to enter an alpha state for meditation and resetting thought programming, but also symbolize the burning away of negativity, leaving behind a sense of clarity, lightness, and spiritual rejuvenation. Burning incense, a single bay leaf with an intention written on it, or simply a candle, are all simple ways to integrate cleansing by fire.

The element of air in tarot is related to thought and thought is also known as the element of the crown chakra. Not to mention, sound travels fastest through air which alludes energetically to sound healing as the best method to engage this element; only second to breathwork as deep, intentional breathing expands our inner awareness and helps us to connect more soundly with the present moment and our inner most self.
Air, with its invisible yet tangible presence, is believed to carry the essence of life force energy and can be utilized to remove stagnant or negative energies from a person, object, or environment. Through intentional breathwork, smudging with sacred herbs such as sage or palo santo, or even simply opening windows and allowing fresh air to circulate, the spiritual use of air can create a sense of renewal and balance. By consciously directing the flow of air, individuals can release energetic blockages, invite positive vibrations, and create a harmonious atmosphere conducive to spiritual growth and well-being.
Breaking stagnancy with sound can be done through use of tools such as bells, singing bowls, tuning forks, or any musical instrument.
The spiritual use of earth for energy clearing is a practice that involves connecting with the natural elements of the earth to cleanse and purify one's energy field. This technique is based on the belief that the earth holds a powerful energy that can help release negative or stagnant energy from the body and restore balance and harmony. By grounding oneself and connecting with the earth's energy, individuals can release any unwanted or heavy energy that may be weighing them down. This can be done through various methods such as walking barefoot on the earth, sitting or lying down on the ground, or even using specific crystals or stones that are believed to have grounding properties. By incorporating the earth into their spiritual practice, individuals can tap into its healing energy and promote a sense of calm, clarity, and a sense of inner peace.
