When do I carry out a Spiritual Cleanse?
One of the easiest ways to identify if you need a spiritual cleansing is by asking yourself if there is a blockage in any area of your life. Usually, when a specific area of your life is blocked, there is a spiritual problem there. Something that is not being released.
You may also need a spiritual cleansing ritual if you frequently surround yourself with toxic people. If you have experienced a serious discussion at work or had a dramatic exchange with another person, that energy is likely to remain in and around you. So it’s a good idea to cleanse it out.
Other reasons for doing a spiritual cleanse of any kind is if you’re feeling depressed or distressed for no apparent reason.
