Do you find yourself getting sick often? Feeling fatigued and depleted? Can’t sleep properly? Getting irritable, anxious and stressed?
If you’re constantly physically and mentally exhausted, it might be time to cleanse your aura and chakras.
What is an Aura?
Your aura is simply a magnetic energy field or “spiritual skin” that surrounds your body. The aura serves as your unique protective energetic boundary, but with unhealthy living, an unfulfilling work-centric lifestyle, toxic relationships or simply with time, your aura picks up and exchanges energies, emotions, stress, trauma, and psychic debris from those around you.
When something occurs physically or emotionally, it is generated first energetically.
This constant bombardment into your personal energetic space drains you out, and weakens your auric field, which can make you feel:
It can also impact your immune system, making you more susceptible to falling sick. All of these reasons are exactly why you need to cleanse your aura from time to time.
What are the Chakras?
Chakras or “wheels” in Sanskrit, originated from ancient India, and are essentially the body’s main energetic organs or centers. Although the body has thousands of chakra points, the 7 main chakras or “energy wheels” that run from the root of the spine to the crown of the head are used in healing.
- Root – base of the spine
- Sacral – below the belly button
- Solar Plexus – above the belly button
- Heart – center of the chest
- Throat – center of the neck
- Third Eye – center of the forehead
- Crown – top of the head
Each of the 7 chakras has its own vibration or frequency, which is associated with specific issues on the spiritual, emotional, and physical level.
When the seven chakras are spinning harmoniously, we feel in alignment. A block in any chakra can affect the entire system.
Blocks or imbalances can show up as physical and mental health issues, pain, and emotional tension, and are warning signs that something is not quite right.
For example, repeating migraines might indicate an imbalanced third eye chakra, or chronic digestive issues can suggest a block in your sacral chakra. A painful divorce can affect the heart chakra, and childhood trauma and fear can be felt in the root chakra.
Cleansing the chakras is important to clearing imbalances which are causing negative patterns to manifest and repeat in your life.
What is Chakra and Aura Cleansing?
Chakra cleansing involves energetically opening the chakras to the right amount, and clearing stagnant energy, blocks and negative energy. The cleansing also involves sending healing energy to the chakras so they can heal and function properly again.
Different healing modalities are used to cleanse the chakras and aura. Some of these include Reiki, meditation, metaphysical healing, crystal healing, Shamanic breath work and more. In most cases the process includes cleansing the aura of stagnant emotional clutter and negative energy to pave the way for deeper chakra energy work.
After a chakra and aura cleanse, most people experience a drastic difference in the way they feel. Most people report feeling lighter, like a weight has been lifted off their shoulders, and that they’re able to consciously push past what’s holding them back.
Chakra and Aura Cleansing at Home
Going to a professional healer is great, but there’s no reason why you can’t experience some of the benefits of chakra and aura cleansing at home.
Aura Cleansing Bath or Shower
Taking a bath or shower can instantly relax and make you feel at peace. An aura cleansing shower or bath is a ritualistic process where you use essential oils, salts, and visualization processes to cleanse your energy field.
Bath: Add lavender or eucalyptus oil to your bath with 1-2 cups of Himalayan sea salt. Soak in the tub for 15-20 minutes.
Shower: As the water drips down your body imagine negative energy being washed away as the water starts to drain.
As you soak or shower, visualize divine energy surrounding you and flowing through you, cleansing your body inside out. Imagine your fragmented aura being repaired and healed. End with visualizing a bright white light enveloping and protecting you.
Aura Cleansing Herbs
One of the most ancient aura cleansing practices is smudging. The process involves burning a sage stick, and letting the smoke cleanse the aura.
With your legs slightly apart guide the sage stick from your feet to the head. Visualize the smoke clearing away your negative energy. Make sure to keep an intention in mind as you perform the cleansing ritual. This could be something as simple as saying:
I release all of my negative energies and emotions, and invite positive healing energy into my life.
You can also smudge your crystals with Palo Santo to get rid of any built-up negative energy before you use them for chakra healing.

Aura Cleansing Meditation
Meditation and visualization are powerful and preventative techniques to thwart bad vibes to stick with you. Even 5 minutes a day of mindful meditation can make a big difference.
Find a quiet place to sit and concentrate on your breathing.
Inhalation: With each breath you inhale, imagine clean bright light entering your body.
Exhalation: With each exhale, imagine your negative emotions being pushed out.
Chakra Cleansing with Crystals
Placing crystals corresponding to each chakra on your body is a highly effective way to cleanse your chakras. The process involves placing each stone over a specific chakra point and imagining a bright light glowing from the stone and flowing through the chakra.
Start from the root chakra and focus your attention on the problems you want to resolve. Breathe deeply as you visualize the chakra spinning harmoniously. Move to the next chakra until you reach the 7th or crown chakra on top of the head. End with grounding.
