Sometimes negativity and toxic environments can weigh you down so much that you have to do a complete cleanse to shake them off. Meditation, positive thinking, eating for health, and mantras are all helpful on a daily basis, but may not be enough. Even when you try to avoid toxic elements you may end up dealing with them in the work place or even with your family. A deep cleanse can help you shake off this toxic energy overall, leaving you looking and feeling your best.

 Internal Cleanse

A cleansing juice or smoothie can go a long way toward removing the toxins you have put into your body through the week. Add energy boosting foods like ginger and carrots if you feel like you need a boost as well as a cleanse. Below are some of the best foods to use in a juice or smoothie to cleanse the body.

  • Apples
  • Avocados
  • Beets
  • Blueberries
  • Cabbage
  • Celery
  • Celery Seeds
  • Flaxseed
  • Garlic
  • Grapefruit
  • Kale
  • Legumes
  • Seaweed
  • Watercress
  • Yogurt with live active yeast cultures

External

An internal cleanse will help you remove the toxins you have ingested, but your mind and body may still feel weighed down by some of the negative energies you have absorbed over the course of the week. A cleansing bath followed by meditation can help you get back on track and focus on your positive and healing energies.

Take a Cleansing Bath

When we talk about a “cleansing bath”, it’s about more than just washing the dust off for the day. You’re going to focus on your mental and emotional energy as well. Sage and salt are you go-to items for this remedy. They don’t just work well for a bath cleanse either. You can use them to free your home from negative energies as well. You can learn the specifics of different kinds of cleansing baths by reading this article about various cleansing baths, but the basics are below.

 

Light up some sage, in some form. Even rubbed sage sprinkled on a tea light candle is better than nothing. Sprinkle salt in your bath tub. Sea salt is best. Run a hot bath. Soak in the bath and wash yourself with the water in the tub, working from head to toe. As you wash, imagine the negative energies from the day being washed from you. After the bath, run the shower and picture yourself rejuvenated by the fresh water as the tainted water runs down the drain.

 

Follow this up with an inspiring meditation. In the coming week, try to avoid negative people and energies in order to sustain a happy, healthy demeanor.
