7 Ways to Protect And Clean Your Aura

by Julie on September 7, 2012

It is critical to protect your aura on a daily basis, especially if you (or your children) are empathic and obviously pick up on other people’s energy.  Or if you are developing your intuition or are already fairly intuitive, then you are also more susceptible to picking up negative energy or even negative entities.  I am frequently asked how to help a child or adult who becomes overwhelmed in crowds, who picks up on other’s emotions or even pain.   In this article, I will discuss several of the more common ways that you can protect yourself and/or protect your child and cleanse negative energy.

  1. Protection Bubble–This is the most commonly known way of protecting the aura.  I do this virtually every single day upon awakening.  It gets me connected to the Divine and begins my day on a positive note.  Imagine white light coming down from the Divine/God/Your Higher Power.  It comes down to the crown of your head and then spills out over you and down under your feet.  You are now surrounded by a white light bubble.  White is pure and thus, highly protective.  It is also full of love from our Creator.  Now, that your bubble is around you, you are protected from any negative energy coming inside your bubble.  You can now change the color if you’d like, add mirrors to reflect away any negative energy (I use this when going into a place that is known to have negative energy or where there will be a large group of people), put hearts to emanate love, whatever you want to put on it to affect your energy for that day.  This is easy to teach to children and if they are not old enough to do it themselves, you can do it for them.  Just imagine the bubble around them.  Before I began homeschooling, my kids did this every day before school.  It made a HUGE difference.  You can put bubbles around your house too.  :)
  2. Carry a piece of black tourmaline with you.  Black tourmaline is one of the best known crystals for protecting against negative energy.  It’s relatively inexpensive as well.  You can find jewelry with it also.
  3. Receive regular energy healings.  Energy healing will clear any blockages you have and I also check for negative entites and any emotional cords that may need to be cut.  Both of these can impact your energy tremendously!!  They can cause mood swings, anger, an imbalanced emotional connection to another that you can’t seem to break, behavior challenges in children, an increase in fear, and so on.
  4. Smudge your aura regularly.  Smudging is a Native American practice using white sage to cleanse any negative energy.  When my kids or husband (or even me) start getting cranky, whiny, angry, etc., I pull out my smudge stick and cleanse everyone.  It is also a good practice after you’ve been around people who drain your energy and/or large groups of people.
  5. Stay grounded.  Grounded means your energy is connected to Mother Earth.  You are not floating around in the ether which is where very spiritual people sometimes prefer to be.  :)  However, it makes us less aware of our physical surroundings which can make us more susceptible to negative energy.  There are many ways to get grounded.  My favorite way is to stand or hug a tree.  Trees are amazing beings that will ground you and remove your negative energy sometimes within just a minute or two.  I’ve walked into an oak grove sick and walked out 20 minutes later healed.  Give it a shot and let me know how it works for you!  Oh, be sure to thank the tree for helping you.  Another way to ground includes carrying a piece of hematite, a very inexpensive stone, with you.  Or wearing it in a piece of jewelry.  You can also wear the color red, which is associated with the root chakra, to help you with grounding.  Be careful not to wear too much or it will aggravate your energy.
  6. Keep your aura close to you.  Every time your aura crosses someone else’s, you are picking up on their energy.  If you keep your aura close to you (just by imagining it as so), your aura doesn’t interact with so many others’ auras.  To see where you aura is, hold up your hands and push out as if you were feeling for your protection bubble mentioned above.  When you feel a difference in the density of the energy, that is where your aura begins/ends.
  7. Use sound to clear your aura.  Certain tones have the ability to clear our energy.  Find a Tibetan singing bowl, a handheld chime, a ceremonial drum, or tuning forks with a tone that is soothing.  It’s clearing your energy and that’s why you feel better after hearing the tone.

You certainly don’t have to do all of these every day.  Mix things up, determine what works for you.  Then do it consistently.  Most of these spiritual cleansing options are very inexpensive or free.  I recommend the protection bubble every day as the foundation for good protection.  Then add whatever else works for you and/or your children.

Are you doing any of these already?  What has worked for you and what hasn’t?  Did you even realize protection was so important?  I’d love to hear your thoughts and invite you to leave them below.

Love this thank you. I had been doing a shield around me of a pyramid filling it with white light. On the outside edge I would make them black because black has lots of protection. At least for me it does i will try many different variations and see if one of these yield better effects.

Billy, thank you for reading and commenting. I love the pyramid idea as well! You definitely should do whatever works for you!

Raquel February 22, 2014 at 5:53 am

I agree with Billy, when I wear black I feel somewhat in control of things and feel very much loved and protected, strange but true. So I know it works for me, cause I certainly feel confident in what makes me comfortable.

Raquel,

Yes, black is a color of protection and a color of the Divine Feminine so it can make you feel protected and feminine. Adding other colors to it can add other aspects that you may need as well, such as pink for self-love or blue for communication. Thank you for commenting.

Hi Julie! I enjoyed your article & I enjoy your f/b page! Thank you for sharing all the info.! I am going to try a number of your suggestions! I know my daughter has some blk. tourmaline so I’m sure she will share with me! :) I have been told by a few psychics that I have a negative energy/blk. cloud around me that I need to get rid of!!! I am fairly new to healings etc., but my daughter is quite familiar! Even tho’ I try to stay as positive as I can, everything is going wrong in my life!!! Is this the negative energy I have around me? I am so glad I came across your page & look forward to learning!!!
Thank you! :)

Hi Sherida, thank you for visiting my site and my FB page! Yes, a negative entity can definitely be causing the challenges. If you are unable to clear it yourself, I perform negative entity clearings so let me know if this is something you are interested in.

Blessings,
Julie

I love how you explain the bubble and where to draw it from! I also love the tree strategy for removing negative energy! That’s a new one for me! I have a friend who communicates with them but we didn;t discuss hugging them. I also believe hygiene is important in cleansing energy, especially exfoliating the entire body. Very refreshing. Thanks for your article! Namaste, Jen

Reply

Julie September 2, 2014 at 4:16 pm

Jen, thank you so much for your feedback!! I hope by now you’ve had some experience with trees. :) And what a great tip on exfoliating, there are definitely times when I shower and bathe to remove energy that is not mine so I like the idea of adding exfoliation!

Namaste,

Julie

Thanks so much Julie as your posts are always quite useful – the one thing that I”ve recently started doing as our needs seemed to be so extreme with our kids these days is to stop using the words ‘protection’ and trying to use ‘empowering’ and ‘owning your own space’ more as my boys are 13 and 15. I get the need for the protection and use it all the time but the word implies that they cannot help themselves – so we’re working more with building that power from within by using the three jewel protection method from Marcy Calhoun (growing them from the inside and expanding them out anchoring them at the solar plexus and then charging them with sunlight and color and then by the holy spirit directly through our heart chakra). I no longer want to tell them how ‘sensitive they are’ without also making sure to remind them of just how strong they are as well – simply a matter of tapping into that energy and managing it better. It’s a real issue for us as thier etheric layers are so thin to begin with – with all this energetic change going on right now globally – and the fact that they are at huge public schools it’s a daily challenge. Have any other parents of teens with this issue? I”m hoping to get hooked up to some local folks here soon (my health has been an issue holding everything back.) Know it will get better so appreciate your site Julie!!!!

Julie October 23, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Linda, I love how proactive you are but I do respectfully disagree with your idea that protection implies that someone cannot help themselves. In fact, I think of it in just the opposite way. That we are always in control of our own energy and even that of what we receive from the Universe through the Divine, our guides, angels, etc. So protecting ourselves from negative energy IS helping ourself. You can still do the inside work you speak of, but for people that are especially empathic or are newly developing their skills, protection can be critical.

Yes, many of my clients discuss the overwhelming challenge of the energy in public schools. One of the many reasons I homeschool my children. :) But I know not everyone can do that, so helping them to manage it is key.

I have recent been attack in my sleep . I felt that somthing was pulling my energy from my head and I got up the thing or the enity went through the ceiling of my bedroom. Can you respond to this what should I do?

Amber April 15, 2014 at 1:55 pm

Hi Tonya,
Sounds disturbing, sometimes I would wake up in the night after having a bad nightmare and feel that something bad was causing it. So I googled.
Sleep with a piece of Amethyst under your pillow (Amethyst turns negative energy into positive) a small bag of sea salt or a chunk of Himalayan rock salt (salt has very protective and cleansing properties) tucked into your pillow case. You could also wear a protective symbol as a talisman (there are many pick the one that feels right for you) preferably made of solid silver. It helped me sleep better knowing I had some form of protection. Hope this helps.

I’m new here, and although I have been an empath all my life, I recently learned about it. I have to say that there few things in this article, that I’m doing it already without knowing about it. For example, going to the forest to heal, since I noticed that once I enter to the forest I’m completely heal, I decided to go every Sunday. Also, using the hematite stone… it was a gift from someone that I barely knew.

Many thanks for this wonderful article.

Hi julie,
I am new to this site i would like to know more about my aura and more about past regression…i googled few but i never found an appropriate answer. Sometimes i feel i work so hard but result zero..please help

Reply

Julie September 1, 2013 at 4:14 pm

Abhishek,

Welcome to my site! Your aura is the energy field around you and is fed by your chakras. I don’t actually do past life regression but what I do is take a look at your past lives and tell you how what happened there is affecting this current lifetime. I can also heal past lifetimes if the option is given to me. What you refer to “working so hard but no results” is definitely something I can take a look at in past lives.

Hope that is a start.

I definitely need an aura cleansing and past life work done. I’ve definitely I’ve been told had someone negatively pray over me. I believe I’m a good person, want a loving family which I never really had good friendships and loving relationship and a job and career that’s supportive but as soon as things look up negativity draws itself into these would be blessings. Please Julie I could use your help

I usually have a similar routine, but lately have foundyself so busy, I’ve been neglecting things. My problem is is that I have a psychic vampire, who I cannot remove myself away from currently. I say the prayers, put up the bubble, and the mirrors. At times, I can sure feel her anger. How can I rid myself of her negativity other than going back to daily routines? Even then, she was draining.

Hey growing up I was always empathic and sucked in everyone’s energy I’m really psychic and have problems even knowing myself at times. Seeing my life through others eyes. Now I have come to realize the importance of a protection. thanks so much. Ill begin implementing this in My practice and let you know how it goes. Oh yeah. As a performer I always wondered why I could perform really well by myself or close friends but umbel around others. Now it all makes sens. I’m to much of a sponge.

White is very pure Bella and yes, it is possible although not very common. It is a sign of a highly spiritual person. I’m not sure what you mean by “inner crystal aura” so I’m not sure how to respond to that. Our aura is our personal energy field that is fed by our chakras, which are affected by and affect all aspects of us: physical, emotional and spiritual.

Thanx Ma’am.
i have tried the energy bubble b4 i read this beautiful post. And i felt a definite positive change in my life.
What i do is, i take bath in the river Ganga(India), world’s holiest river. I chant ‘Ram’ and go inside the water 3 times while chanting. then i fold my hands and bow before the life-giver sun (i imagine it as if goddess Durga is there, the life giver to all beings). Then i feel as if im getting empowered and light falls all over me. This is done all in mind.
Well, u can try this as well, esp. if you know hinduism. u will feel the change.

Thank you. Your site will hopefully be beneficial. I have been researching areas and chakras for like six months now. I’m having some difficulty because the only guidance I’m receiving…..in this physical world anyway……of course god has helped me…is through the computer. I am in much need of a spiritual guru. I believe my chakras need to be cleansed..and am working on finding out how. Thank you again….so much for the advice…..its funny how sometimes we do things our whole lives not knowing why. Then you research and are like…..Wow…that’s why I do that….lol…thanx….blessings….namaste

Thank you for reading and commenting. A reading or coaching session with me would probably be really beneficial to help you. Or an energy healing session to clear your chakras, see what the blocks are related to, etc. My 1-hour readings and coaching sessions are on special right now and that is ending Sunday so it’s a great time to book with me! Give me a call at 512 931 4325 if you are in the U.S. and we’ll get you paid and scheduled.

I’m desperately trying anything right now. I’m married to Autistic person who has a malevolent personality. I’m sure he attracts destructive energy. I’m planning to leave but won’t be able to for 10 more months. Living in the same household trying to keep my aura clean is a challenging battle and I loose everyday. How much of black tourmaline do i need? I have once piece that is about 2 inches long.

Reply

Julie September 2, 2014 at 4:20 pm

Lea, do you keep it on your person? Since black tourmaline is inexpensive, I would recommend placing a number of pieces around your home as well. Your partner might need an energy healing to clear his energy. In my work with people with autism, I sometimes see that they attract negative entities and are very empathic, thereby picking up a lot of negative energy. I do energy and entity clearings so if this is a service you are interested in trying, please give me a call at 512 931 4325 if you’re in the U.S. or go to my Contact button above if you are outside the U.S.
