We live in a fast-paced world, always racing against time to reach our goals, to be better than yesterday, and to feel fulfilled and useful. And in all the chaos we may find ourselves, one must never forget to take care of their wellbeing.
It’s a fact that we’re under the constant influence of toxins, both physical and spiritual. And while there are so many sources on how to detox your body, not many know that detoxing your soul is just as important.
Here are 8 very powerful ways of detoxing your soul that can set you at peace and allow you to experience the beauty of this world from a calmer perspective.
1. CLEAR OUT CLUTTER
Although clutter is a physical thing, it does affect the energy flow. In fact, clutter keeps the negative energy from being transmuted or neutralized, which means that living with it means living in a hive of negativity.
Reduce your possessions to the things you actually need and remove everything else. Clean your living and work space and allow for the energy flow to be reestablished.
2. GO OUT IN THE SUN
Exposing yourself to the natural elements, especially sunlight, are especially good for detoxing your energy. Not only will the sunlight provide you with plenty of Vitamin D (good for stress relief and a natural antidepressant), but it will also feed you with the energy you may be lacking.
Nature is the best healer. It nurtures the body, mind, and soul, and presents a polar opposite of the urban, stressful life most of us are used to. Spending time in nature will provide you with loads of oxygen while rejuvenating your energy and healing any blockages and negative influences.
Even 5 minutes a day is more than nothing, and it will serve you for the whole day. The serenity and energy that meditation provides is one that should not be underestimated. It has been shown that meditation has many positive effects on the brain, and spiritualists will tell you how important it is for the soul.
Exercise, besides the physical benefits, serves as a powerful grounding tool. In times of high stress and/or depression, exercising will allow your energy to settle down and any excess (both positive and negative) will be given off to the earth for transmutation and neutralization.
6. TREAT YOURSELF
Who said you didn’t deserve a little pampering? And who’s the best person to give it to you if not yourself? Treating yourself is a sign of loving and respecting yourself as you love and respect others. So, give your mind a break and do what pleases you most.
7. TAKE A BREAK FROM TECHNOLOGY
Technology should serve to make our lives better. But the way things are going today, people tend to do themselves a bad favor with technology. Excessive consumption of anything is dangerous and unhealthy, and that also goes for technology. So, put the smartphone down, get away from the screen, and look up in the sky for a change.
8. DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE
Many people tend to focus on earning money while feeling completely destroyed by the fact that the job they do isn’t something that makes them excited and happy. And while you should definitely consider working something you love, sometimes the choices aren’t at our disposal.
This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t dedicate some time of your day to do something you truly love. Whether it’s something creative, sports, family outings, or whatever is lingering in your heart right now, doing it will liberate you in unimaginable ways.
