You wash your body and clean your house – why wouldn’t you regularly cleanse your spirit?
We regularly come into contact with unsavory things, especially if you happen to be a city dweller. Whether it’s bad vibes at the office, a heavy talk with a particularly needy friend, negative self-talk, or an unwanted aggressive encounter with a stranger, all these things can leave a negative imprint or residue on our aura/spirit – or at the very least, leave us feeling totally drained.
Over time, just like an unkempt household, negativity can build up around us and block us from our higher self – as well as block positive things all around us that are meant for us. If we’re blocked, not only can we not see the good, we also can’t accept it; that’s because it’s too murky around us and we’re clouded with all the negative junk.
With Uncrossing or unblocking spells, the goal is to clear out and cleanse away anything that’s holding you back from your higher self and your true calling. It’s like sweeping away heavy cobwebs, clearing away all the negative self-doubt and cloudiness to reveal your life path. As with all magic, it’s about taking back control of your life – and this includes taking control of your spiritual hygiene.
So how often should you do an Uncrossing? The short answer is, it depends on what you do in your everyday life. “Obviously people have different professions that bring them in contact with various kinds of energy, and everyone’s different. I definitely don’t recommend doing an Uncrossing everyday, but doing some kind of cleansing ritual on a semi-regular basis,” says Stacy Rapp, owner of Enchantments.
“If you work at a hospital, for instance, you’re going to want to do more Uncrossings than someone who works from home,” Rapp continues. “But the one thing we do recommend to everyone is you balance the Uncrossing with an Attraction. So it’s like, if you do an Uncrossing, you want to follow it with something to attract positive energy into your life and space.”
Before we can invite positive change into our lives (love, money, career success, etc), we have to make room for it. You wouldn’t buy all new expensive furniture before you’ve given your house a good sweeping, right? Uncrossing does exactly that: it removes negativity in your space and aura, and unblocks anything holding you back from your highest potential, including people, ideas, and things that are no longer serving you.
Sometimes a thorough clearing out/cleansing can be a bit uncomfortable: you’re getting rid of all the shit that’s just not for you, that doesn’t resonate with you anymore, that isn’t serving you – and that can sometimes make us feel uneasy. It’s all too easy to stay in the same routine, to build walls, to block out people, to “protect” ourselves from what's “out there.” But building walls never really works and when it comes to magic, a good cleanse and Uncrossing is the first step.
There are many ways to do Uncrossing and as with all magic, you should do what works best for you. Whether it’s using candles, herbs, incense, prayer, chants, baths, or meditation techniques, pick and choose what resonates with you and go from there.
