Reduce Your Toxic Load to Raise Your Spiritual Vibration

Updated: Apr 25, 2022

Five years ago I hit a spiritual roadblock. I had been on my spiritual journey of awakening for several years prior to this. I was discovering who I was becoming and what my life purpose was. But, it seemed that no matter what I did or how much I healed, I kept hitting blockages.

It was as if I had reached some kind of energetic ceiling to my personal growth. At this time in my life, no matter what I did to raise my vibration, I was still battling intense days filled with postpartum depression and anxiety attacks. I remember many times feeling emotionally depleted and physically exhausted. And, on top of that, I was dealing with loads of inflammation, chronic pain and frequent attacks on my immune system.

I was stumped! I couldn't figure it out. I was doing twice a day meditations, practicing yoga, working with healers, eating healthy, exercising, etc. But, no matter what I did, I just kept feeling energetically pulled downwards. My mind and emotions were all over the place and I was completely ungrounded, uncentered and disconnected. And, no matter how healthy my lifestyle was, I was always either sick or tired. It felt like I was on a never ending hamster wheel of continuous struggle!

And, then, something happened that changed my life. A teacher introduced me to the role toxins and chemicals play in our overall health and well being. I was raised in a very traditional home. So, this was a brand new concept to me.

With this new knowledge, I began to invest in a more natural lifestyle. I became more drawn to products that were safer and less toxic. Over the coming year, my medicine cabinet, cleaning supplies, skincare, makeup, fragrances and beauty products all received a healthier makeover as I became more sensitive and aware of the chemical impact on my body.

It didn't take long for my energy and vibration to drastically increase. I began to gain clarity around the direction I wanted to take in my life. Within a year, my mental, physical and emotional states returned to balance. And, I began to feel like I was able to once again, move forward on my spiritual journey.

There was something about this process that was so important to me, that I can't ignore it. I share this story with you, because I learned a really powerful lesson that year. I learned that the greater effort I made to reduce my toxic load, the higher my vibration was able to raise and the easier it was for me to come back home to myself.

What Is Toxic Load?

Toxic load is the build-up of toxins in your body from chemicals in your daily life. The strain that these chemicals place on your body is called "toxic load."

Most people are completely unaware of the amount of chemicals and toxins that they are exposed to daily. It's estimated that over 200 chemicals are found in a newborn's umbilical cord blood. In addition, humans are exposed to 700,000 different toxic chemicals on a daily basis.

The impacts of chemical overload can have a devastating effect on your health. Most perfumes, fragrances and toxins found in your every-day products have been linked to:

  • Hormone disruption

  • Auto-immune diseases

  • Reproductive issues / infertility

  • Weight gain

  • Allergies

  • Headaches and migraines

  • Skin problems

  • Cancer

  • DNA damage

  • Anxiety, stress and depression

  • Sleep troubles / fatigue

  • Respiratory issues

In addition, I've seen firsthand the kinds of energetic effects that overexposure to these ingredients have on our auric field. For example, someone whose body is burdened with toxins will often have very dark, dense and damaged energy fields. It seems to me like there is a direct connection between toxic load and our spiritual, energetic field.

I've been working with clients recently whose bodily systems look completely overwhelmed. Of course, I'm seeing this in an etheric or spiritual kind of way. But usually the people that I see this with all report similar feelings: anxiety, stress, sleep troubles, worry, etc.

When I ask for guidance, the information I often receive is that many of us could be more conscious of our toxic load. It often contributes to this overwhelming feeling on all levels of our being - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

Plus, I have seen time and time again the way toxins have played a role in disconnecting us from our higher intuitive wisdom. They seem to muddy our central column that connects us both to God and higher states of consciousness as well as our connection to Earth and home.

All of this is to say that it's critical that we learn to take small steps each day to purify our body, mind and Soul. I believe that one BIG way to do this is to begin by becoming more aware of the number of chemicals that we expose our bodies and homes to.
