Volcanoes filled with ash are spewing its hot molten lava into the atmosphere. It is ridding itself of any impurities that does not suit it anymore. Truly, it becomes a metaphor for what is necessary to do when you have impurities in your body, mind, and soul.
There are times when the body needs to be cleansed of too much food or liquids that it has eaten or drank too freely. A quiet period of abstinence from food or eating in moderation becomes necessary. Your body may also have absorbed too many negative emotions such as anger, frustration, or stress. These must be cleansed as well. Journaling, speaking of them to a dear friend, meditating, praying, or talking with a therapist will allow them to dispel. The energy of those feelings becomes weakened by releasing them onto paper, to a person, or a spirit. The space that is left inside can then be filled by the flow of positive energy.
Similarly, the mind can have the same impurities of thoughts. When there is criticism or judgment heard within ourselves or among others, it is time to release it. It serves no purpose other than to make us unsure of ourselves, create fears, or alienate us from yourself or others in our lives. Let it out. Cleaning yourself in the same manner that the body does will serve you well.
Does the soul have these same impurities it must release? Yes, the soul has picked up imprints from many lifetimes that must be released. Doing this work in meditation, your dreams, or through past-life regression with a trained therapist can release these soul imprints that are not serving you well. What is left will be a joyful awakening of your soul’s purpose and passion in life. Let them go…it is time!
