Simplified Energy Cleansing Process

Enhance and support the balance, peace and vitality of your home.


Many of you are home now. You're on new routines, possibly spending more time together than ever before and in each other's hair, maybe overwhelmed by all that "togetherness." Those of you working in essential services and your family members who are dealing with added physical distancing also have an extra layer of challenges and worry.

We know you're making the best of it, but stuff happens. You can address that human "stuff" — tension, anxiety, out-of-place emotions, arguments that hang in the air, extreme worry — and strengthen your home's balance with the Perelandra Simplified Energy Cleansing Process.

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 what impact it will have.

Examples of times you'd use this Process:

  • Your daily life has changed because of the pandemic.

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

  • Your family is also going through a difficult transition, with kids, parents or grandparents moving out or moving in.

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

  • You are still going to work, are exposed to the public and worried about what you might be carrying back to your home and family.

  • You're quarantined alone and find yourself full of angst, wanting to cry for no discernible reason every time you walk into the kitchen.

  • You've had a particularly challenging homeschooling lesson, probably about math, and everybody's bumming.
    (Tip: If you're having trouble getting in the right head-space, watch Episode 2 of Some Good News with John Krasinski on YouTube together and then do the Simplified Energy Cleansing Process!)

  • You just have this sense that there's something more you can do to take responsibility for your own "stuff" rather than expecting nature to deal with it.

  • You are counselor, massage therapist, acupuncturist, chiropractor, physician, divorce lawyer and even though you're conducting your business from home through video conferencing, you're starting to feel the weight of all that arbitration when you sit down to your desk and computer.

  • 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 will not need to have any other Perelandra products on hand in order to do this Process. All you'll 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, that treasure-trove of clothes you just bought at the local thrift store, the free couch you just picked up from a friend of a friend, 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 whole 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.

  • If you own a restaurant, grocery store or other essential business that is still operational, with staff and customers coming and going, while taking new and unprecedented health and safety precautions, make this your final cleansing task each day.
