As part of your regular spring cleaning routine, here is a wonderful way to give your home a fresh start for the season:

Do the Perelandra Simplified Energy Cleansing Process for your home. (And for your business or office!)

Machaelle and nature developed the Energy Cleansing Process in 1981. It helps us take responsibility for the unbalanced energy we sometimes leave hanging around, often without realizing we're doing it or its impact.

With this process you can strengthen your home's balance and address the human "stuff" that can linger in your environment — tension, anxiety, out-of-place emotions, barbs from an argument that now seem stuck to the walls, extreme worry, a recent chaotic or disastrous event in your area.

What better time to "clean up" that lingering human stuff than right now?

Examples of times you'd use this Process:

  • You feel like there's something more you can do to take responsibility for your own "stuff" rather than expecting nature to deal with it.

  • Your family is also going through a difficult transition or you have suffered a painful loss.

  • You and your partner have an all-out battle-of-wills that ended with both of you thinking, "Oh, I shouldn't have said that." Now even the family dog seems to be out of sorts.

  • You're struggling financially, depressed, anxious or out-of-sorts in any way.

  • Your job involves interacting with the public and you're worried about what you might be exposed to and carry back to your home and family.

  • You're full of angst, wanting to cry or eat a month's worth of cream cheese at once for no discernible reason when you enter the kitchen.

  • Your child had a rough school day and it's having an impact of everyone in the house.

  • You are counselor, massage therapist, acupuncturist, chiropractor, physician, divorce lawyer, etc. and even though you're conducting your business through video conferencing, you're feeling the weight of all that arbitration when you sit down to work.

  • You or someone in your household has been ill or is particularly vulnerable and there's always worry and fear in the air.

The first time you do it, the Simplified Energy Cleansing Process takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. When you're familiar with the steps, it may take about 20 minutes. As Machaelle explains in the instructions, your ability to focus and the attitude you bring to what you're doing are important. You don't want to rush.

You do not need any other Perelandra products on hand in order to do this Process. All you need is a clear mind, a good attitude and the instructions.

It also doesn't require that you live in a house with land. You can do this process on a single room that you rent, your apartment, your cubical at work, your car, your latest online order delivery &mdash anything. The only requirement is: You must either own, rent or be officially in charge of a specific environment, property, farm or garden, etc., in order to do the Energy Cleansing or any other Perelandra Process on it.

WE MEAN THIS! DO NOT try to Energy Cleanse your neighborhood, your office building (unless you own or rent the whole building), your grumpy neighbor's house, your town, your country or the planet. Imposing your will on the rest of the world in this way isn't helpful. We do not have the right to make the decision for anyone except ourselves, for our own home and land.

Also, this process is designed to be used on objects and environments (land, home, office, etc.) — not on people. Don't use it on yourself or others.


How often should you plan to do the process?

It would be reasonable to do the Simplified Energy Cleansing Process weekly on your home.

In some situations, it may be helpful to do the process every day. A few examples:

  • If you are working from home, particularly if the work is stressful, doing the process at the end of each day would be beneficial.

  • If you're a package delivery or freight driver, cleansing your truck at the end of each shift would be smart.

  • You own a restaurant, store or business with staff and customers coming and going (even if they're just pulling up to the curb). While taking all of the necessary health and safety precautions, make this your final cleansing task each day.


More Tips On When and How Often

#1. During times that you or anyone in your household is under a lot of stress, financial strain, or in any type of crisis or dealing with a serious illness, you will all benefit from incorporating this process into your cleaning routine, doing it weekly. Use this process more often if needed and after unusual events and changes like a heated argument or particularly upsetting event or bad news, preparing for visitors, when big changes are happening — kids moving out, parents moving in, new dog or cat or parakeet, death in the family, including death of a companion animal, renovations, and when repairing physical damages from tornadoes or fires or floods.

#2. Anytime your home environment feels out of sorts, or you are feeling like something is just "off" at home — try the doing the Simplified Energy Cleansing Process and the EoP shift (below) for your home environment.

#3. If you're a counselor, massage therapist, social worker, dentist, teacher, HR professional ... Daily energy cleansing of your office would not be too much! It will benefit all who come to you for help and you too. There will be situations and times where an energy cleansing after each client would be beneficial, especially following any particularly charged or difficult sessions, classes or meetings. If you can't fit the energy cleansing in between clients, simply shift EoP to the room to rebalance the environment and prepare it for the next client, patient, employee meeting or class. This will support you, the work you do and the people you serve.
