Feng Shui Cleansing with Lime can show you easy ways to use limes for healing – by Gwynne Warner.  Cleanse, lift energy, clear the air, and more!

Feng Shui Cleansing with Kaffir LimeIn many parts of Asia, limes are believed to be wonderful for good luck because they draw out all negative chi from your aura. In Feng Shui cleansing, using limes for detoxification for you and your spaces is very easy and affordable.  They can…

  • Help eliminate odor and cleanse negative chi
  • Cleanse your mind, body and energetic field of anxiety, depression and nervous tension
  • Lift your chi
  • Restore your chi after the anguish of losing a loved one or attending a funeral
  • Support you while going through a particularly bad astrological month

With each of the following procedures, please visualize, feel and believe that you’ve succeeded in removing all the inauspicious chi and bad luck from your space, body and mind.

1.  Wash three kaffir limes (available at Whole Foods and Asian groceries) and cut into 6 halves.  Squeeze the juices into a basin for bathing.  Pour a scoop of water from the top of your head down.  Repeat two more times.  Wash now with your regular bath soap.  Then use the remaining lime water in the basin to wash away any negative chi.  Dry yourself with a fresh, clean towel and get dressed in fresh, clean clothes.  Try to stay out of the bathroom for three hours at which time, pick up the skins and throw them away.

2.  Use a drop of the essential oil kaffir lime on a clean white cloth to wash your altar.

3. Use a couple of drops on a tissue and place in your car when you drive.

4. Use a few drops of kaffir in a basin of water and use as a final rinse in your shower.

5.  Take a kaffir lime, wash it and cut in two halves.  Squeeze the juice in water and drink. Now take the empty halves and rub over your entire body.  Toss the peels.

6.  If you’ve been a victim of lies, gossip or another kind of a negative attack, here’s a way to cleanse your aura.  Take two juicy limes but don’t wash them.  Hold one in each hand rolling them in your palms as you say to yourself “All of the bad intentions, vibrations and harmful thoughts, words and actions of {person’s name} are pouring into these limes.”  Keep rolling them for about 10 minutes and then throw them into a river or other source of moving water.  Toss one over your right shoulder, the other over your left. Don’t look back!  Go back home and end with a sea salt bath.

7. Place about 9-12 drops kaffir lime oil in a pail of purified water and clean the whole house, especially the main door.

8. Take a footbath with freshly squeezed limes or kaffir limes in warm water.  Soak for about 15 minutes to help remove obstacles and open up your luck.

9. These can also be part of cleansing and blessing ceremonies. Take kaffir lime leaves plus the juice of 9 limes and/or kaffir limes and squeeze into a pail of clean water. Clean all the chi entry points in your space, beginning at the Mouth of Chi them all other exterior doors and windows followed by the bedroom doors. Visualize washing away any inauspicious energies and welcome fresh, new vital beginnings. Pour the remaining water down every drain in your home washing away any ill chi then grind the peels in your garbage disposal.
