Detoxing for Higher Consciousness: Mentally, Emotionally & Physically

Submitted by Open on Fri, 09/29/2017 - 06:22

A crucial ingredient to the spiritual path, is the importance of detoxing, in order to cleanse internally and open your consciousness so as to allow higher self to infuse more fully. Detoxing is going to make you feel more light, expanded and connected - it feels like coming alive again.

It's vitally important to detox mentally, emotionally and physically

Detoxing is an extremely involved practice, requiring careful exploration and application. Here is an overview of some general considerations...

Mental Detox:

If you're not already meditating, or doing it infrequently, meditation needs to become a daily part of our activity. Even if it's challenging to sit in stillness, build up gradually and slowly. Set an alarm for 5minutes and build up until you can sit for 30 minutes without difficulty - which could take a while. Use breath so soften and relax. Don't feel you have to intentionally still the mind. Rather focus on the feelings throughout the body and the mind will still over time. So the mind begins to detox. Once you can do this, then try shorter periods of time spread throughout the day. If you don't already have a practice you're happy with, you could try this Breakthrough Breathing meditation 3 to 4 times daily for 5 minutes (once you know the practice)... Besides meditation, it's vitally important to be careful what you subject your mind to, because it's rather like a sponge. Best not to fill it with junk soap opera vibes from the TV or other news media! So besides meditation, find alternative ways to spend your time - creatively for example through the arts and music. Take up a new creative hobby such as painting or playing a musical instrument.

Emotional Detox:

The emotional body will very likely store stress from anxious feelings often caused in relationship - where situations are not always harmonious, either in ones family or at work, or just generally living in society. This is going to be especially so if you're highly sensitive or empathic. If you don't cleanse the emotional body, you'll likely start to 'boil over' fairly frequently or break down in day-to-day circumstances. Another symptom is the need to comfort eat so as to dampen the emotional feelings of stress or anxiety. The emotional body can be detoxed in a number of ways: (1) taking time out to fully express the emotion by crying or shouting or emotive dancing to music; (2) grounding the emotions and dissipating them through nature - connect with a tree for example and ask it to take the energy away; (3) do something that makes you happy, amused and laugh a good deal - this releases emotion; (4) sexual self-pleasuring also helps to release pent up emotion. Here's a useful article on... Dealing with the Challenges of Being an Empath or Highly Sensitive

Physical Detox:

Of course it's so important to detox the physical body too, because it is the 'temple' that houses your higher vibration. And if its convoluted through mixed up and scattered frequencies then the soul will struggle to embody - you'll struggle to feel it. So if one is constantly putting junk food and toxin into the body, then the quiet voice of the soul will be hard to hear. If you haven't done so before, or don't do so regularly, January is a great month to begin juice detoxing. I would suggest at least a minimum of 2 whole days where you're only juicing. Here are several detox juices that are easy to make from... Trinity's Conscious Kitchen:

Physical detoxing also includes unwinding tightness in the body. Regularly use the sauna if you have access to one, with plenty of those rejuvenating cold plunges! Of course it's essential to develop deep consciousness physical practices such as yoga and if you know it from the courses, then Openhand's soulmotion
All of this kind of cleansing naturally happens on the Openhand Courses where we're detoxing mind, body and emotions so as to allow the soul to come in more strongly. And when residential on retreat, we're always serving conscious cuisine. You'll find detoxing in these ways brings tremendous benefits to your life. You'll open up more, feel more alive and rejuvenated, and thus the soul will flow more freely, enabling you to make better aligned, higher truth choices. Happy detoxing!

In loving support

Best line ever in a movie because those creatures are just amazing and that squirrel story of yours too is awesome!


I know a little bit about obsidian removing unwanted dense or negative energy. I can see why they are so valuable now for this. I am surrounded by it and I can see the benefits already. I live right next to one of those cell towers, so it seems energy is more or less magnified.


I see you talking a lot about magic recently. So thought I'd share another thing that does not escape my notice. This song has played almost nearly everywhere I have gone lately, its on the radio when I turn it on, its on the loudspeaker at stores I shop at and now fully in my mind when I wake up. There is no denying this at all.





Hi Wyndè - I love the story of the squirrel - wonderful. The Sun Emoji
I recall a guy in central park New York who was feeding squirrels from the hand. He told me that when he gave them an organic grape they would eat it right away. However, if it was non organic, they would take the time and trouble to peel it first!

And I totally concur with Obsidian - I carry one with me and use it at all the Openhand gatherings to create a channel that takes any dense energy away. A very powerful feel indeed.

Much love

Heyas all,




I went on a trip to collect some and I came home with all different kinds of it. I can honestly say this has helped me just detox a lot of that negative incoming. I've learned something very valuable in how to neutralize it using the -1 0 1+ which is working very well for me and am more able to see things from a better view/perspective.


Plus talking about it helps as well!


Also I realize I never replied from my earlier post regarding iron pyrite and black tourmaline. I actually already had some pyrite and I do notice how if I move it to different rooms it helps the energy there. I did acquire a decent piece of the black tourmaline since this original post and I move that around too when I feel the need. But this Obsidian I'm working with is a God send I tell you!!! I actually gave some to a few people I thought needed some as well.


Oh and if any of yall are looking for inspiration – How about a story?!

I was sitting eating peanut butter and non salted crackers one day on my porch and up came a squirrel to me. I handed it a part of my cracker and it sat there with this cracker in its little hands and proceeded to lick the peanut butter, then devoured the cracker. I thought WOW, that was just sooo amazingly cute to me to see. So as I went to hand it another cracker it reached its little paws up to me, took my hand in theirs and bit me slightly. Both squirrel and I were a bit shocked but this reminded me to stay aware and conscious while doing anything! Especially while handing things to adorable squirrels!




Very synchronistic for me. I'm going through a fast myself for the last 2 days mostly mental detoxification. I'm taking a break from smart phone usage. The last 2 days I spent without watching YouTube or any other media or messaging. This alone has a huge impact mainly because I was abusing it for long periods of time. What I'm noticing is that the mind is still active, but there is more clarity when the judgement arises seeing it as distortions thus detaching from it. This has led to greater sense of sovereignty and freedom. I actually lost my phone charger, so that's what initiated it. I'm seeing signs of warrior and feeling more determination in the path. Its been actually very long I have done any kind of fasting. What was I waiting for? Today a situation arose where I had to say no and express my limitation to a family member in the face of potential judgement. And I realized afterwards I was only judging myself and its OK to express my truth. I'm going for 10 day vipasana retreat and I'm so looking forward for intense detox there. Take care fellow travellers. Heartvoltage emoji icon



Hi Thomas - welcome to Openhand - and thanks for the link *OK*

And Lisa - awesome to see you gracing the shores of Openhand once more with your presence! *OK*


I love this! I am in the process of detoxing the physical... I've had all my amalgams replaced apart from one. Apart from being toxic to the body, they magnify wifi. Underwire bras act like an ariel with wifi too.
I had my house assessed by an EMF person with his low and high frequency meters and now we do not have wifi but have cabled broadband ( most of the time)
I also use a shungite crystal which soaks up EMF's but must be cleansed once a week as it acts like a sponge soaking it all up but when it's full it will release it all back unless it's cleansed. I also have a clear glass pyramid called phi space.
I also have epsom salt baths , do enemas and have colonics. Skin brushing and walking in nature, juicing . An area I have not addressed much is clearing the clutter in my house...
What I neglect somewhat is the spiritual side...meditation on a regular basis. Happy cleansing everyone ! Lisa x :)


Wow, such a great topic. Now i will try my first post:)

The use of crytals for energetic cleansing interests me for a while now and through my family i got to know 'angel stones'which a lady in southern Germany produces and which are unbelievably nice for an appartment (link in german). With eyes closed it feels like a huge white bulb of angelic energy, very comforting and enhancing the atmosphere.

A nice side effect there is that you are also covering have of your neighbourhood:)

A mountain crystal placed near the wall which is facing the neighbours flat will give some additional protection. Mostly we are not aware that somebody else mit be sleeping just a meter away from us and we don't notice as there is a wall in between - another point to consider sleeping with your head to the center of the room.

Many greetings from Mali,


Hey Lia - thanks for sharing - good pointers and tips *OK*

Wynde you said...

    "So black tourmaline for electrosmog huh?! Thats intriguing! I usually just unplug everything."

Yes, it's essential to unplug appliances when not in use to clear a space of much electrosmog. However, because the average home uses alternating current, there is always a residual electric field in the walls, which creates magnetic energy loops that interfere with your own body chemistry and higher dimensional field. Hence things like Iron Pyrite to help harmonise the field.

    Another essential tip in this regard, is not to sleep with your head against the wall (which is the norm). Sleep instead with your head pointed toward the centre of the room, away from walls.

Great sharings everyone!

Open *OK*


Hello, Wynde :)

So we've got some company, ha? Yey!

Now I feel even more inspired :D



Hey all!

This is really timely for me too as I was just thinking recently that this is exactly what I need to do. I just feel like I'm coming down from a whirlwind and wanted to just literally detox!

I just painted something recently that came to me from what I can only describe as an ending to a dream I had. I'm sure the image was only maybe 5 seconds of play out, but I felt as if I spent an eon just studying and learning it's texture and color. Funny how crystals are mentioned with this post too. Because I grabbed this huge mahogany obsidian that I have and kept it extremely close to me during the time I drew out the image I saw and then tried to paint it.

So black tourmaline for electrosmog huh?! Thats intriguing! I usually just unplug everything. Yet lately Ive noticed even that isn't working so much. So you have a post on this crystals etc here somewhere Open? Links?!! please! I might get lost in all the articles and come up day's later for air LOL!! I admit it, I'm a readaholic.

I'm with you Someone on your list of to do's for detox! Especially #2 and #3 and the lemon water I drink constantly!
I think though that I'm still trying to learn a balance between tuning everything out (that infinite void is just soo peaceful) and trying to allow space for whatever comes my way. Its like a juggling act sometimes. Or maybe I just haven't learned yet how to do both, yet I do know its not for lack of trying :)

Luck to you all on Detoxing!! I'm with ya


Oh, this is so funny! I am starting to detox this week :)

The plan is all written. I notice it happens naturally and periodically twice a year, in autumn and spring, pretty consistently for years, and now I am feeling it again.

My way of detoxing the physical body - raw food, then raw fluid food for a couple of weeks, back to raw, lots of water or water with lemon, and move about three hours a day (yoga, dancing and walking) and eh... enemas.

Usually it so happens that I have some body therapies or do myself reflexology sessions every day before sleep. Now I am going through some spine and hips alignment and started some skin recovery program (I have some problems), so I basically peel my skin off (quite metaphoric).

For the last couple of years I add parasite cleanse and bitter juicing, these are really extraordinary: Don't mind the threatening video, this thing does treat many conditions, just as it is said to, and the feeling is just incredible.

I also filter what I own - a lot of throwing away and minimisation going on.

I was always lousy in mental and emotional detox, so it is very timely for me to try these in my "new space-suit". I just might succeed this time :D So thank you so much for the tips. There are things I didn't think about :D

I have in my list also, for mental and emotional:

1) create a detox audio and video playlist - no negative, poisonous and tightening vibes (that's also rehab for me)

2) filter who you communicate with - minimum noise, mental and emotional, minimise communication and triggering in general, it is like usually I am into this stuff, but it is important to rest from all that processing and let the excitation decay and get digested fully before the next set of challenges :)

3) minimum information - it is hard to get to zero input and just let the mind rest and settle a bit, but it can be minimised to work

4) plenty of sleep - I notice that things get resolved there often, plus, many messages and connections come in sleep, that don't in meditation

Immersion in water...

I find it is not by chance that in Jewish tradition there is this mikve ritual of purification - immersing the body in water, including the head (not like in shower, but really dipping the whole body into water, like in the sea or bathtub). I noticed it has a very powerful impact, on all levels. So I try to do it at least once a week.

In general, I always were quite tight and controlling in my detox times. This time I am really going through a shift into a more spontaneous and pampering mode, kind of unfamiliar and beautiful. Some self-love...



Hi Alex, great inquiry *OK*

Yes, black tourmaline (in particular) I know is good at reducing electrosmog. Personally I use Iron Pyrites around plugs. That seems to work well.

When talking about the body, I'd say it's personal.
Mostly I think in this sense, crystals are most effective in realigning and resonating your core vibe rather than detox, or else bringing new frueqencies through.

Do share what you discover with the community - I'm sure plenty would appreciate it.

Open *OK*
