Hello wise friend,
Your mattress holds energy. You sleep on that energy all night, every night. Year in. Year out. It’s an intimate energetic exchange between the two. So it makes perfect sense (to me )to cleanse and clear any heavy, stagnant or toxic energies that may have soaked unknowingly into the aura of the mattress.
The ritual of cleansing your mattress is like a huge detox for your energy fields. A sweeping away of ghosts of the past, old wounds, bad dreams pain memories or ill health.
It’s quite simply life changing.
The energy you sleep on:
Here’s a few cleansing rituals to choose from. Go with what feels right for you. Do all if you sense your mattress holds strong toxic energy.1. Sprinkle mattress with combination rock and sea salt. Lightly rub into mattress. Leave for at least 4 hours and then vacuum up. Sea salt works well for emotions. Rock salt for heavier denser energies.
2. Place a bowl of sea salt under your bed that has been infused with a few drops of juniper essential oil. Change every week (new salt) until you feel there has been a shift of energy. Essential if you’ve had an emotionally challenging year or the mattress is second hand (and that’s a whole other story).
3. Cleanse the aura of your mattress with a sage smudge stick or palo santo. Perfect for monthly cleansing maintenance or after a bad dream or restless sleep. I tend to smudge in, around and under my bed at least once a week.
4. Sound medicine. Leave your device on the mattress and play a healing mantra. The longer the better. This is the one I’m loving at the moment. In fact its playing right now. Takes me straight back to my English retreat in September.
5. Grid your bed for protection. I prefer to grid my bed with black tourmaline. It’s the most protective crystal from the mineral kingdom we have. Perfect for physic attacks or feeling vulnerable to the energies around you. You will need 4 pieces of black tourmaline. Any size. Pop one under each corner of your mattress. Call in the light, use a crystal wand or activate with reiki to energetically join the four pieces of black tourmaline to form a protective shield.
