That's how I like to think of emotional clearing. Sometimes I tell my clients to get out the 'fire hose' when were dealing with a particularly sticky energy, but most of the time is just a 'brushing off' or 'sweeping out' or maybe a nice swish of cleansing water to wash away the energy we no longer need. (metaphorically that is)
Have you ever thought about how much energy you pick up every day that doesn't even belong to you? If you were wading through that much muck all day and climbed into bed at night without taking a shower first, would your spouse divorce you?
Energy is kind of like that.
Imagine what it would feel like to walk in the door, after a long day working, and feel amazing. Light! Energized! Peaceful! Simply ask the energy "Who does this belong to?" You will hear an answer - the first thing that pops into your head is usually the answer. It's going to be a) someone else, b) something else like the Earth, or c) you. If it's not you, ask that energy to "Return to sender with consciousness attached" because you do NOT need to keep it. It does not serve you. It's been said that over 90% of the emotions we feel are picked up somewhere and don't belong to us. Wouldn't it be nice to stop carrying your boss's anger, your co-worker's anxiety, and that person in the checkout lane at the grocery store was dumping fear all over you.
We are all energetic beings and we communicate through energy much more than we realize. If you would like to read an interesting point of view on this subject, read the book "Blink" by Malcolm Gladwell. We are brilliant at perceiving energy whether we know it or not.
So try this tool for a couple of days. "Who does this anger belong to?" "Who does this resentment belong to?" "Return to sender with consciousness attached." (That's so they can recognize this energy as something they can also delete.) Use it all day for a week and see how you feel?
What if your life could get so much better and it could be simple? What would that be like? Anything is possible.
