You've probably heard about the benefits of a physical detox from fitness gurus and celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow. A spiritual detox can offer similar benefits for your soul. It allows you to rest and recharge, removing the negative energies clouding your spirit. But how do you know if you need a spiritual cleanse? We'll take a look at some common signs that you may need to cleanse your soul, as well as the steps you can take to detox (and no, you don't have to go full Gwyneth for this cleanse).

What Does a Spiritual Cleansing Do?

Think of a spiritual cleanse as a detox for your soul. In the same way a juice cleanse or hot yoga session can detox your body, a spiritual cleanse can purify your mind. It allows you to release the toxic, negative thoughts or energies blocking your spirit. After a spiritual cleanse, you can move forward with renewed optimism and positivity, feeling refreshed and energetic.

When Should You Consider an Energetic Refresh?

Have you ever felt a little off? Maybe you're suddenly tired all the time, or you might find yourself snapping at your partner over minor annoyances. There can be many signs, both physical and emotional, that it's time for a spiritual cleanse. Here are some symptoms of energetic drain to watch out for.

You're Constantly Stressed

Do even the smallest tasks stress you out? If you're adding items to your to-do list but you can't keep up, pressure can build inside you. It causes you to feel fearful and anxious, potentially stopping you from moving forward. Constant stress can be a sign that it's time to detox your soul.

You're Exhausted or Having Trouble Sleeping

Exhaustion can be one of the biggest physical signs you need an energetic refresh. You might also have a hard time falling or staying asleep, causing you to feel depleted the next day. If you find yourself nodding off at your desk, it's probably time for a spiritual cleanse.

You're Attracting Negativity

When you're in a bad place emotionally, you tend to attract negative energy. You may even actively seek it out. For example, you might waste 45 minutes doom-scrolling on social media or turn a friendly conversation into a vent session in a matter of seconds. When you can't stop dwelling on the bad, it's a sign your soul is in need of a refresh.

You're Annoyed Easily

Have you ever found yourself thinking, "I'm going to lose it if my spouse/child/friend/co-worker does that thing one more time?" If so, know that your annoyance has more to do with you than with them. When you're easily annoyed, you might lose your temper and say things you don't mean. You might even get irritated around people who exude joy and happiness. These are all signs that it's time to look inward.

You're Feeling Stuck

When you feel stuck or unmotivated, it may be your soul trying to tell you something. You might feel confused or fearful about moving forward. Maybe you know what path you're meant to take, but you're anxious about taking the first step. You should feel empowered to grow into your fullest, most beautiful self. If you don't, it's time to do something to change that.

Your Home Energy Feels Off

Your home is your sanctuary, and this environment can reflect your personal energy. If you're not sure whether you might benefit from a spiritual cleanse, start by examining your home. Have you started collecting clutter, causing your house to look like an episode of "Hoarders"? Do you feel unusually stressed whenever you walk into your home? When the energy in your home feels off, it's usually connected to your spiritual mindset.

How To Cleanse Yourself Spiritually

If you find yourself relating to one or more of the above symptoms, have no fear. There are ways you can cleanse your soul and remove the negative energy holding you back.


Whenever you feel disconnected from your soul, bring yourself back into the present moment with meditation. Put on a guided meditation or play some gentle music in the background. Get into a comfortable position and focus on clearing your mind of the stress, anxiety, or other negative emotions blocking your spirit. Imagine those energies floating away as you fully cleanse your spirit.

Go Outside

Nature can be a powerful antidote to the negative toxins infusing your spirit. When you're feeling off, make it a priority to step outside, even if only for a few moments. If you can, take a walk in a peaceful environment. Ditch your headphones and true crime podcast to focus on the sights, sounds, and smells of nature. Give your soul the opportunity to connect with Mother Earth, and you'll be surprised at how much better you feel.

Feel Your Emotions

Sometimes, you might try to ignore your negative emotions and push through to the other side. However, that's like trying to trudge through mud — not a good idea. Instead, allow yourself to feel your emotions to cleanse your spirit. Do whatever you need to do to let them out. For example, you might have a good cry or journal about what's bothering you.

Once you've acknowledged your emotions, allow yourself to sit with them. Find a quiet space to reflect on each emotion you feel without judgment. Then let those emotions go so you can move forward.

Practice Gratitude

Nothing makes you feel better than realizing you have so much to be grateful for. Make it a goal to write down three things you're grateful for each day. When you're feeling down, this practice can remind you of all the good in your life. It gives you the freedom to let go of the negative energies blocking your spirit.
