If I have had a particularly draining day, I have a ritual to assist me in cutting the cords of stress and releasing all the tension of the day. I begin by taking a symbolic shower. I allow the water to pour over me envisioning all the colors of the rainbow flowing through the water. I ask God to wash away any negativity that is attached to me or that I have absorbed. I stand in this shower long enough, taking calm, slow deep breaths, until I feel that the negativity has been washed away.
Before I drift off to sleep I say the following:
Archangel Michael, protector, please post sentinels on all windows and doors and bath my entire home in beautiful white protective light.
God, act as a chimney sweep and clear and balance my chakras and my aura and energy field as I sleep.
May I awaken feeling refreshed, re-energized and filled with God’s light.
