For your instruments of practice, gossiping, and everyday living.
First, the instruments of practice:
Instruments of practice like runes, pendulums, etc (Not cards). Wrap them in clear wrap, pop in freezer for 30 minutes. Then take them out, let them sit in the clear wrap until room temperature. Now it’s time to sage them. For me, this gets rid of all negative energy and puts the items back to its starting point. For pendulums, you may have to re-train.
Cards, whether they be tarot, lenormand, or an oracle of any kind, are different. Putting them in the freezer is a big NO NO. They could get damp and warp. And I don’t know about you, but I hate warped or torn cards. So what is a reader to do? Well, there are lots of things you can do. I’m just going to name a few.
- You can put your cards back in order and then shuffle.
- You can spread your cards out in the Full moon light by a window sill. Perhaps even add a gemstone like quartz on top of them.
- You can walk barefoot in the grass with your cards in your hands and shuffle them.
- Or you can do what I do and sage every card.
Any of these should ground your cards and get rid of any negative energy.
Second, gossiping people:
If someone is talking about you and you want to shut them up, write their name an odd number of times on a brown bag or piece of paper. Then write crossways “shut up” the same amount of times. Put said paper in a zip proof baggie and fill half with water. Then toss in the back of the freezer for as long as it takes for them to “shut up” about you. A little alum tossed in the baggie is okay too, if you have handy.
Third, negativity in everyday comings and goings:
My “go to” is sage. I sage everything that comes into my home or workplace. If I’m feeling a little negative I burn white sage incense.
When I’m at work, I’ll slip off my shoes and walk in the grass for about 5 minutes. This helps to ground me and the negativity seems to go into the ground.
