Perspectives on Power – 82 – The power of consciously cleansing


There are many different rituals throughout all cultures surrounding the energetic cleansing of a space.

I am aware of only a few myself, but I can say this for me personally there is great power in pushing my body to (or beyond) physical limits of exhaustion (aka 90 minutes hot yoga, running a 5km in under 30 minutes, daily squats and mountain climbers).

There is also great power in a cleansing nap or long deep sleep. Heck, there is even an energetic cleansing that happens in the literal cleansing actions such as taking a shower or washing my hands even. I guess everything that isΒ  intentional could have cleansing power brought forth by choice and point of focus.

It is spring in the Northern Hemisphere right now and a perfect time to think about cleansing our homes, our vehicles, our calendars,Β  our committments, our lives really. Ask yourself what is really important to you and then make space for it by cleansing out things that are no longer nourishing and energizing. You deserve to be surrounded by people and things that support you and mirror your awesomeness. Do not settle for anything less. Be impeccable in your spring cleanse. Leave no corner untouched.

I look forward to sharing a carefree, creative, adventure filled summer of the senses with you now that we have harnessed the power of cleansing.

    1. Thank you Ed. Hot yoga is generally hatha postures done in a classroom that is heated to 85 degrees farenheit or higher. I have done yin classes in a hot room, and those are poses that are relaxed into and held for 5-7 minutes at a time to really help the deep tissue. There is also a Bikram style which I think may be 98 degrees and the same 26 postures done in sequence everytime. One can really monitor body changes after a year of practice. There is also power yoga in a hot room. That means you will be doing a lot of sun salutations and the class is designed to flow through a variety of postures holding for one or two deep breaths at a time. These are challenging and rewarding for me! If one is not accustomed to practising in sauna like temperatures I would recommend finding a hot yin class first to try. πŸ™‚ As for ‘namaste’ – the divine in me sees the divine in you – as a loose translation. It is a classic greeting and parting in yoga classes and generally said with the hands in a prayer pose around the heart center. It gives me a wonderfully warm feeling to express it and receive it. Thank you ever so much for asking so that I had the opportunity to answer and share this feeling! Have a wonderful day! πŸ™‚

      1. Wow, that’s fascinating. Never heard about all that. Some of my friends and family have started yoga, but haven’t told me too much about what it is. 85 degrees? Wow, that is hot.

        Thanks for letting me know what namaste is too – been seeing that word more and more around these days. That’s really cool. Thanks for the thorough reply!
