yes cleanisng! Well, I pray for 24/7 healings, cleansings, protections and recharges for my energies - as much as necessary, available and sensible.
As for grounding - I concentrate on my heels and ask healthy, divine Earth energies to come up and connect to me (they'll then pull out negative and stale energies and give me fresh energies up).
Another great and simple visualization is a divine, healing bubble of Light - around you. You'll then breath in Light and breath out whatever your bodies want to release (or you can work on specific things). The Light then will take those negative and stale energies, and put them into the big cosmic recycling....
I love combing the two techniques with my cardio. Keeps me breathing, I won;t fall asleep and get soem exercise done at the same time.
I supposed it is because our bodies have some innate ability to digest and excrete negative energies - a bit like an immune system of the soul. It has it's limits though, and most people's lives have more stress etc. , than their bodies can cope with on their own. So one needs to meditate (or at least pray for energy cleansing) to help ones being to cleanse. The body seems to have buffers too, it can tug away negative energies for a while, but like a bucket of water, you drip water into constantly - at some point it will overflow....
Simplified you can compare it to having showers. Now if you do not shower, you might not start to be smelly for a day, or two, or kids even for a week or longer - but at some point it will flip and you will start to smell, and you and your surroundings will appreciate that you shower.
As empath we need even more to look after our selves and our energies. our bodies do not just have to cope with our own crap energies, but we can get them from others too (i.e. our bucket will potentially overflow quicker)
