I use those methods for cleansing everything I need, you just have to choose the one that suits your intention and materials (for example you won’t use flame for cleansing a new set of cards etc. :) )
Hold a vanilla scented candle in both hands until it becomes warm to the touch. Chant three times:
Vanilla chase this mess away.
Keep it far from me today.
Light the candle and let it burn until the anxiety disappears
from the book Everyday Magic
by Dorothy Morrison
I modified this spell slightly. I used a wax cube and a candle warmer.
Stand under the rain (as long as you wish). Let it pour over you and as it does, visualize the water taking all your negativity with it as it flows down. When you are wet, say in a strong whisper:
“Magical waters that fall from above,
cleanse me of hate and fill me with love,
I desire to possess no negativity,
Only positivity should flow through me.
As I will, so mote it be!”
Intense Personal Purification: for those times when you desperately need to clear out negative thoughts and habits from yourself. (This spell does involve blood magic)
- blood (your own)
To make oneself pure as anew
prick the body cleanly through
Blood for blessings, sage for smoke
burned, and cleansing be invoked
As the chant states, prick a finger and put a few drops on the leaves of sage. Burn it and speak the chant, repeating the last 2 lines a few times until you feel better.
