Cleansing Green Fire Ritual
Excerpt from Trust Your Vibes by Sonia Choquette
My favorite six-sensory ritual to open the way to a higher vibration on all levels is to make what I call green fire. Green fire cleanses the atmosphere, leaving it in a pristine state, and invites a fresh start. It’s a powerful ritual to officially signal the beginning of a new season in your life. (Some five-sensory people think rituals are pagan and ridiculous – I prefer to see them as artful and creative, as they speak to our nonintellectual side. I’ve done rituals all my life, and I can absolutely assure you that they work.)
To perform a green fire ritual, write down all that you desire to mentally and emotionally release. Next, grab some foil, a box of Epsom salt, a bottle of rubbing alcohol, a deep pot, and a match. Line the bottom of the pot with foil to protect it, fill it with two cups of Epsom salt, and pour enough rubbing alcohol over the salt to fully cover it. Place the pot on a protective plate in the middle of the floor of the main room of your home, apart from anything that can catch on fire. If you have a fireplace, put it there. As you light the mixture, ask your Higher Self, angels, and guides to help you release all old and negative vibrations, leaving your environment free and clear of unwanted energy.
Place the list of old vibrations in the fire. It usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes for the fire to burn out, so remain with it. Whenever I burn green fire, I like to drum out the old energy as well. If you have a drum, you might want to do this; if you don’t, you can always make on with another pot. Making loud noises helps dissipate negative energy as you burn the fire, so feel free to make loud sounds, grunts, or chants. Laughing is another great cleanser, and this ritual does make one laugh. Another helper is to ring a bell while burning the fire. You can also shout at the energies in your home – a simple “Get out!” does the job, and it’s fun to scream this.
A green fire ritual is very powerful and effective and should only be done with real intention. I do it every three or four months, or whenever I feel a little blocked, just to clear and renew my spirit. It’s a wonderful ritual to finish this week’s psychic purge. Notice how much lighter and more conscious you feel after cleansing your energetic space.
