Yellow is a ‘sun’ color. It makes us feel happy and optimistic
It lifts the soul. It is cheerful, joyful, friendly. It helps you go through changes. Lemon is a natural cleanser with qualities of purification and love. The lemon symbolizes the human heart, light and love. Lemon is known to bring in feelings of healing and love in addition to calming and a sense of well-being.
So, with this in mind, it seems only fitting that lemon would be the ideal agent to help with energetic and spiritual cleansing. Here is what you do.
Set aside a time to hold your Spiritual/Energy Lemon Cleanse.
This can be done with either a bath or shower. Both are nice and have unique qualities. With a bath, start by adding a few drops to the water prior to entering. With a bath you can feel totally surrounded and emerged in the cleansing. With a shower, it is easier to visualize the negativity being washed off, down the drain or to change water temperature to aid in different feelings. Both are nice.
Hold the intent the entire time that the purpose is to cleanse energy, ridding and washing away negative energies for the highest good. Ask for divine protection.
Visualize and feel the negative, heavy issues being washed away.
Think of, visualize and feel the cleansing qualities of the lemon being used to aid in this. I like to use several lemons and taking them just from the refrigerator so the are nice and cold. I also de-seed them just prior to use.
Lighting a candle helps bring in the transformative and regenerative energy of fire.
Keep in mind that coughing or gagging can be the physical expression of the body eliminating energetic gunk. Go with the flow.
Playing soothing music may add to the goal.
Holding each lemon or lemon half in the palm of you hand acknowledging the cleansing spiritual quality of lemon, honoring and thanking the lemon will help strengthen the effects and bring in more light and love.
During the cleansing gently squeeze drops from the lemon slowly from head to toe. Feel the cleansing, feel the love, feel the gunk wash away. Bring in the light and love. Surround yourself in light and love. See and feel bright yellow, golden light as you do this.
If you have other essences, lavender or chamomile, make nice additions and helpers although, not necessary.
Any of this can be tailored as desired. The important thing is the intent and feeling of cleansing and restoration.
