How to Release Self Doubt & Cleanse your Energy in 2020

Do you ever feel the energy change when people walk in the room? or feel like you can sense negative or stagnant energy? Maybe you're an empath or just  

Energy is all around us, it speaks volumes. Some people can hear you without speaking a single word. 

At the start of 2019, I felt overwhelmed and exhausted. I couldn't stand to be around people due to finding their energy-draining and I was setting unattainable, unrealistic goals that would only lead me to feel a lack of achievement. I soon realised, I just needed to do more inner work and break free from the habits that were really holding me back. It wasn't the fact that I didn't get up every day at 4 am for that 5-mile run I wanted to do at the beginning of the year. It was because that no longer served me, firstly I don't really like running anymore and I hate going out at 4 am in the cold. I was focusing on the results rather than the intention. Once I realised that; my whole mindset and energy changed. My intention was to move my body to make it feel good and to have more energy. Instead of going for a run, I started to meditate, went to yoga, worked with my crystals more, set boundaries and stopped saying yes to situations and people that didn't serve me and by the end of the year, I was feeling much better however it took me till around October to realise this! 

With this in mind, I want to support you in feeling good this year, I want you to love yourself enough to set intentions that energise your mind, body and soul. When you make a change that cleanses your aura you reach a higher frequency and state of being. Taking inspired action and making a change will make you feel amazing! Want to know how? ...

1. Get rid of toxicity 
If you had a mirror looking in on your life, how would you feel about the energy around it? What is holding you back, clear anything that is no longer serving you weather that be things, people or places. It might be difficult at first but once you set boundaries and clear the things that don't fill you up then you can start making space for things that do. 

2. Cleanse your space 
Cleansing is a great way to get rid of stagnant energy. Make it a safe space. Start with smudging using elements such as clary sage or palo santo. Sage is powerful as well as protective, it cleanses what we perceive as negative energies and is also calming. Palo santo is more gentle but it purifies and protects whilst being a mood lifter. If you don't have these get creative, use candles, crystals or essential oils anything that makes you feel revived. 


3. Change your inner dialogue 
Often our inner self-talk can be the most destructive. If you wouldn't say it to someone you love then don't say it to yourself! I know this one takes practice but it is worth doing. Every time your self-talk starts to become negative. Say to yourself " that thought is no longer serving me, delete" and replace with a new self-loving thought. 

4. Crystal Cleanse 
Crystals are a great way to keep energy clear and cleanse you and the spaces around you. Find one crystal you love and work with it for the week. If you are a crystal collector like me you might find this difficult but trust me it will be so powerful. Once you have chosen your crystal, only work with that crystal and move your others away from you. Meditate with it, carry it with you and see if you can note any changes in your energy. Avoid using crystals that are too grounding like tourmaline or black onyx. Try something cleansing but uplifting like Smoky Quartz, Amethyst or Diamond. 

Each month at Zuela, we are going to share our crystal of the month with you. January's crystal is Diamond for new beginnings. Diamonds help purify energy, support us during meditation and embrace ourselves. An affirmation to use whilst with this crystal is " I align & vibrate with the purest light" 





Diamond is a lovely stone to use for this exercise but don't worry if you haven't got any diamond crystals, you can easily work with another stone for this. 

Each of these steps is not meant to pressure you, do the ones which you feel good to you. Have fun them, the more you enjoy and do things for you the more inspired the change. We can't wait to see your cleansing routines, don't forget to tag us @_zuela #zuelaheal
