Want Good Energy? Find the Beauty in Your Life

My Spirit Care, 25 Years of Psychic and Spiritual Advice for Thousands of People

People tend to get depressed in the winter: maybe you can relate. There is a diagnosis for this condition, called seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, for short. During winter, there’s almost no color in the world around us; just shades of grey and dull browns…muddy asphalt…dirty snow…little light…and instead of being outside in nature, people just want to retreat from it. Having been caged indoors for warmth, artificial light and safety, by the time Spring comes around we are famished for glittering sunlight, chirping birds, and green foliage. We are yanking at the leg irons to get outside once again. We ache to be released from a four-walled human habitat; the beauty of nature pulls on our heart strings and awakens the life within us. Why do you think that is? It’s because all domesticated human beings are wild inside…and believe it or not…the “Great Outdoors” is the cradle of a human soul.

Nature’s winter season has an important counterpart within the human psyche. Domesticated humans undergo spiritual winters. During these times, self-expression and personal growth will hibernate right alongside the bears of the wild, especially for those who suffer from SAD, and this human spiritual winter can come during any season of the year. During those times, we are depressed and the world seems grey on the brightest, most beautiful of days.

Be that as it may, in their natural state humans have a soul hunger for nice days and green trees, for the beauty, color, and exquisite symmetry of nature.  Psychologically and spiritually, healthy humans crave beauty, they thirst for it. Surrounded by beauty, the spiritual luster within a human being can come to life. Maybe you have noticed: people tend to be more pleasant toward one another on beautiful, nice days; they also tend to be more outwardly civil when they are within a beautiful environment. Beauty and cultured behavior frequently (although not always) go hand-in-hand.

We all know towns and cities that are outright ugly. Maybe you live in one of those places: poorly zoned communities with run-down, shot-gun buildings on tightly-crowded lots, garish, eye-sore signage piling up to the sky and spilling over onto the sides of the road, leaning poles with multitudes of sagging wires, litter, broken sidewalks, acre upon acre of asphalt and pavement, dust, junk, litter, barred windows, dirty air, over- crowded roadways with the racket of sirens and back-up beepers. These man-made, unnatural, and offensive expressions of human society look especially terrible in the season of winter, but if we want to know why we have to put up with them we should know there is a reason they exist. They reflect the perpetual spiritual impoverishment of those who created them…those who develop property out of greed, those who oversee communities but do not inspire or nurture them, and those who choose to live in unsightly ways because they have gone utterly blind to beauty and its critical importance in our psychological and spiritual lives.

So here we are: with millions of people living in physical and spiritual blight simply because the greedier  society becomes and the more financially inequitable, the more hideous the common human environment becomes. Beauty-in the form of function and design at least- is now largely the purview of the rich, leaving the rest of the masses to contend with decay and all the negative intrusions it brings to human Consciousness.  To live in man-made desolate places, without countering the ugly things with those that are beautiful, is to parch the human spirit and to slowly…invisibly…desiccate the living soul.

Beauty in our Environment Gives Rise to Good Energy

Robin's eggs in nest-2Without beauty around us, it is difficult to thrive. Collectively, unless we become conscious of and respectful of beauty, humanity’s expectations of a “great society” will collapse into ruin. However, just because one has to live in an ugly place does not mean we have to embrace our circumstances as inevitable. Not only can we be advocates for community change, but we can surround our personal environment with things that are beautiful to us. We can also create physical order in our lives, which is an expression of beauty in itself.

As a clairvoyant, I can tell you that the spiritual reality is a magnificent array of an unlimited Light Field, arranged in exquisite order.  There are also regions of chaos and darkness, inviting the creation of order from and harmony within them. There are probability fields, and convergence points, from which the instant physical reality arises…and this has direct meaning to you in your personal life.

Your aura, or spiritual body, is a fast-moving field of colored light particles as well as waveforms of energy. These change with mood and emotion. When you are feeling down, your aura will take on a muddy, darker hue and when you are energetically “up” it will brighten. When your aura is bright, you attract more brightness, your good energy begins to expand and your aura gets stronger. A strong aura is a protective shield against negative energy.

When you find something beautiful to focus on, this alters the convergence point of a particular timeline moment, and if you do this frequently, you change the frequency of your personal vibration to a higher rate; meaning, your life will begin to express more positive events. The Hopi have a saying, very spiritual, and it is, “Walk in beauty.” The First Nation peoples were inseparable from Nature, from the beauty of our Mother Earth that envelopes all of us, if we have the eyes to see and a heart to hold it. Their advice is extremely sage. We would all do well to walk in beauty. Nature shows us the way.

The word, “beauty”, can also be capitalized like a proper noun because in the context of this article, Beauty is a force of Consciousness and a Divine expression. -A Deity in its own right. While it’s valid to say, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and while to one person purple/orange/green nail polish is beautiful, and to another, it’s ugly, the kind of beauty I’m writing about goes way beyond the fickle fad of the day or an intellectual debate or so-called sexual attractiveness. True beauty is that which inspires the vital energy, the Divine Consciousness within a person… it always has a subtle life force…and because it comes from the Source of Life, there are concealed blessings associated with it. It is a constant fountain of Life for you to dip into, especially in times of need, sadness, and despair…during a winter season, the winter of your life, or all those recurring moments when your inner world turns grey and your heart feels barren of hope and joy.

By now, you probably know I’m going to tell you that Beauty makes for good energy. There is enormous value to human society in fine art, classical music, fine architecture, and outstanding literature. There is untold benefit from having an ordered environment. Above all and more than anything else, the beauty of Nature can heal your psyche, your spirit, and your life.

People who are in close communication with Nature can even find great natural beauty around them in wintertime: barren trees and windswept plains have a beauty all of their own. Then…there’s springtime, which is upon us now, and my, oh, my…there is a feast of beauty that awaits you!! So get outside and take it all in.

Again, the Hopi say, “Find two beautiful things” when you are feeling down. Focus on the first beautiful thing, then find another…and focus on that. Let yourself be with the beauty and merge with it. You will discover that the heavy feelings have dissipated or left you entirely. Even gazing on, and being with, the beauty of a single flower can put you in a state of spiritual transcendence. Cultivate an appreciation of beauty in your life, and beautiful, you will most certainly be.

Scrubbed Your Aura Lately?

Can you imagine how unattractive—or unhealthy—you’d be if you never had a bath in your whole life? YIKES!!

Today, society pays tremendous attention to physical hygiene and it’s a billion dollar industry. What most people don’t pay one bit of attention to, though, is psychic cleanliness.

What’s that?

Your energy body—or an aura—and it needs a good scrub once in a while, too.

When was the last time you felt god-awful tired after a normal work day? Or, what about some of those strange aches and pains you’ve been having lately?  Oh, and what about the feeling you had once when your boss stood next to you and for no logical reason, you became uneasy and suddenly worried about your job?

Time for a psychic scrub!

Not only do we generate our own cascade of emotions and energies into our auras, we also pick up the energies, emotions, and characteristics of surrounding situations and nearby auras. And if they’re negative, their “link” can stick to our auras. So, if it’s not cleaned out, it can interfere with our energy and even our relationships. Compatibility between auras is the basis for attractions (and dislikes) between people.

So what is this thing called an aura that has so much influence in your life? Your aura is your spiritual body, or Light Body, and it’s literally made of light. It’s who you really are underneath your skin, your DNA, and your thinking brain: it’s your Spirit, your eternal essence, the real you.

Your aura radiates your thoughts and intentions to others and when your thoughts are loving, other people will be drawn to you. Negative thoughts, on the other hand, are very destructive energetic constructs that give out bad vibes and make for a negative, unsightly aura. Learn about thought forms and how to get rid of bad ones in the very important articles here and here.

Your aura is a colored spectrum of living light and even more than your physical body, it needs to be kept clean. People go a whole lifetime without a psychic bath and eventually…we all need a good psychic shower.

Since soap and perfume won’t do the trick, here’s what will:

Sea salt or table salt

Add salt to your bathwater (or on a shower sponge) when you are depressed, tired, feeling scattered or not quite yourself. Salt has an incredible cleansing power for your energy body and “washes away” unwanted energy with ease. A dish of salt on your desk, near your bed, and in the bathroom will help absorb negative energies and keep you, your workplace and home spiritually clean.

Sage and sage smudge sticks

The Native Americans have known about the sacredness of the sage plant and how the smoke from burning a wrapped bundle of sage works to drive away unwanted energies and clean your auric field. Same for your living space.

Chimes and singing bowls

Just as the light that makes up your auric body is a frequency, sound is a frequency also. The clear, vibrant tones of chimes and singing bowls (some people like using a tuning fork, as well) clears the air of lower frequencies (unhappy or unpleasant feelings are lower frequencies) and is a wonderful way to keep your aura clean! Just a few minutes a day with these higher frequency tools can go a long way to keep you psychically healthy.

Essential Oils and other plants

The fragrance and frequency of oils and plants such as eucalyptus, pine, lavender, and citrus purify room energies and, if properly prepared for cosmetic use, can be used on your body to help lift your mood and align your aura, thereby cleaning unwanted energies.

The Sacred Rattle

Shamans around the world have, for endless ages, used the rattle in their ceremonial spiritual work. Made from gourds, hides, etc., a sacred rattle clears the air of heavy energies and makes room for the good energies of the Universe to come to your aid. The sound produced by the rattle removes blockages from the aura, clears out dense frequencies and purifies the one who seeks cleansing through its respected and dedicated use. Rattling a few minutes a day is extremely beneficial to your spiritual health.


An altar—a special, sacred place for worship and meditation—is an excellent compliment to spiritual cleansing practices. Having one in your home generates positive energy and provides a safe, healing alcove to recover from intrusive energies and restore psychic vitality.

Crystals and stones

Crystals generate positive frequencies, especially when subjected to or programmed with positivity; and certain stones, such as obsidian or tourmaline, protect from negative energies.

A Balanced Spiritual Practice

Spiritual seeking, meditation, prayer, and the like, when practiced in balance, help keep your aura clean, clear, and free of unwanted energies. (Excessive spiritual pursuits can put you out of balance and do more harm to your aura than good.)

Connection to the Earth 

This is so important in a time when few people get into nature or even have their bare feet touch the ground anymore. Get outside to spend time with nature. When you can, remove your shoes and let the soles of your feet caress the earth: feel the love of your earth Mother coming back into you. Hug a tree…really! Trees house very wise and ancient spirits who will happily assist you to cleanse your energy body and give you great strength in difficult times.

Good Thoughts and Loving Feelings

 These are your most important defense against heavy, negative energies and the surest way to have a shiny clean aura. Remember the old saying, “Don’t worry, be happy” and that will point the way to having a beautiful, glowing energy body. Joy, courage, a positive, generous outlook, and a loving heart will make you shine like the sun and the world will be a much better place for having you here!
