There are ALWAYS times in life when we wish we could just step away from ourselves and have a break from the energy that is emanating from our own bodies and minds. I feel this especially when I'm dealing with negative emotions like anger, frustration, anxiety, or that dreaded shame spiral. There are times when I can't get away from myself fast enough.
Luckily, we have breath, crystals, Intentions, and the ability to focus our energies elsewhere by shifting our emotions, our mindset, and our spirit.
Cleansing your energy is actually easier than you think and working with crystals to rebalance and boost that cleansing is a wonder-FULL way to find peace, get grounded, and try again. Check out these amazing crystals to pair with your cleansing routine when you need a break from it all.
