Mother Earth just enacted hers and now it's time (during this NEW MOON!) for you to do same...a Karma Cleanse. I'm going to offer the granddaddy of all environmental cleanses since the CLEANSE theme is running so high:

You'll need uncooked rice, sea or kosher salt and a glass, crystal or wooden bowl. And some rum. The higher the proof the better. Fill the container to 70% with the rice and top off with the salt. Add as many drops as you are old PLUS ONE of the rum and stir with the index/power finger of the hand you write with. Stir in a clockwise direction and stir as many years as you are old PLUS ONE. So, if I were 29 years old, I would stirring, in a clockwise direction, 30 times.

Once done, go outside and starting at the front door walk the perimeter of your living space while tossing handfuls of the rice mixture into the air so that they land at the base of your house. Do this all around the house until you end up back at the front door where you started. Be aware of how much of this mix you will need to make it all the way back. As you throw this FEEDING THE HUNGRY GHOST mixture, be sure to seal the deal by saying the THREE SECRETS REINFORCEMENT mantra; OM MANI PADME HUM. Just say this over and over as you disperse the cleansing blend.

If you aren't able to do an out of doors cleanse, take the peels from nine fresh oranges and tear them into pieces. Put the pieces in a glass or crystal bowl of spring or distilled water and let them sit overnight. Strain the peels the following day and walk through the entire living space, starting at front door and walking in a clockwise direction, flicking this citrus water everywhere. Flick on the floor, the walls, the ceiling and especially into dark spaces and corners. Once you return to the front door if you still have water left (and you should) pour a bit down every drain of the house...toilets, showers, bathtubs, sinks etc. Say the mantra offered above.

If you are really ambitious and really set on making yourself vibrate at the same level as PROSPERITY you can do both cleanses. Especially powerful to do that during a New Moon and just ahead of a new month.

Okay, now, go forth and prosper. BUT, FIRST, go forth and cleanse! XOE
