Episode 26 

[00:00:00] Jeannette: Peace and innumerable blessings and welcome welcome, welcome. Welcome to the spirituality and motherhood podcast, where we reside in that sacred space where spirituality meets motherhood. In this space we'll explore everything from how ancestral and earth based spiritual practices and paths, shape motherhood to how having spiritual gifts impacts your experience 

[00:00:22] as a mother I am Jeanette Jackson, your hostess. I'm the mother of two boys. A, Hoodoo, a psychic and a tree talking lay herbalist. Thank you for being here. Thank you for listening. Let's get a pop-in. In this episode, we're going to talk about nighttime hygiene. Yes. Nighttime hygiene so that you and your children do not be waking up with spirits staring in your face or spirits harassing your children at night, because I have been there. 

[00:00:59] And it is not pleasant. And I don't want that for you. I don't want that for you. Quick reminder. If you have questions for guests, my spirits, my honorable ancestors, or have a spiritual topic. You'd like us to tackle head on over to spirituality and motherhood, podcast.com. And let me know, alternatively, you can find me at JLancien, J L ANCIEN 77 on Twitter.

You can support it by subscribing leaving a good review or heading over to PayPal.me/ritualmama and putting change in the plate Bum buddah bum buddha putting change in the plate. 

[00:01:56] Yeah! Put some change in the plate. Okay. Let's get it cracking.  


[00:02:09] Jeannette: So like before even getting into like nighttime hygiene, which is what I'm gonna call it today. Nighttime hygiene. I have to say my practice is rooted in Hoodoo, but before being Hoodoo. I was super woo-woo, I was, I was talking to Arch Angels for real y'all for real. 

[00:02:32] That's like, that's a story anyway. And, and looking at ascended masters and being like, why is Afra the only black one, this is some bullshit and I cannot stand by it. And, and that's how things as an adult, as an adult now, finally getting back in her body, that's how things kicked off for me. And then I ended up, you know, transitioning to plant based magic plants, being like, look, Hoe, this is what you're gonna do with this. 

[00:02:58] And I'm like, oh, why are you talking to me? They're like, we talk to you all the time was like, wow. And then finding myself at the crossroads as a Hoodoo. So I say this and I create this little box because it's important to honor the way that spirit best works in and through you. And it's important that you honor. 

[00:03:20] And work with those on your spiritual team, you know, who on your spiritual team by noticing what works for you. For example, um, I, I hear a lot of things, but not everything wants to work with me. I hear things like I hear, like I hear spirits on the land. I hear Deities. I hear the winds out of the east. 

[00:03:50] I hear, I hear like rivers pop-up and they're like. Hey, I'm like, Hey Boo, I hear things, but not everybody wants to work with me. If I have a problem, you know, I know I can't necessarily go to every land spirit. I can't go to every river. I can't go to every tree. I can't go to like every gnome, like there's a set squad just because I'm hearing it 

[00:04:16] does not mean it wants to help me. It wants to be kind. Some things just like to talk, discernment, understand who's on your team and also understand just because you're drawn to something doesn't mean exactly it wants to help you either. So you learn to know who's on your team by asking for your benevolent spirits, the energies, the entities 

[00:04:43] that are working for you to please reveal themselves for you, to you. And as they reveal themselves to you, you got to honor your intuition, ask for confirmation and honor your intuition because not every thing plays with every body. It doesn't. And just because things pop up saying, Hey, I'm this and that doesn't mean, you know, could just be talking. 

[00:05:18] There's a lot of talk. There's a lot of talk. There's a lot of spirits that just reach out. That doesn't mean they want to work with you. And that doesn't mean that they're like rolling with you. So it's important to practice some discernment, put things through their paces, do some research, follow your gut. 

[00:05:40] And be really careful we're in a time spiritually, that demands. Yeah. Demands demands requires a lot of spiritual discernment because, uh, everything is not as, as it appears and everyone is not as it appears, which is why it's important that you practice discernment about your own spirits and not exactly allow everybody to, to 

[00:06:08] fill your ears with this spirit is with you and cultivate your own relationship with your own spirits, because sometimes your spirits will mess with whoever is trying to fill your ears with whatever and your spirits won't be telling your reader or whoever it is, everything. So cultivate your own relationship with your own spirits. 

[00:06:33] Ask for confirmation practice discernment. Honor your intuition, because don't forget that the divine lives in you, the divine dwells and moves through you. So in some way, you already know you're just waiting for the right time to reveal it to yourself. Practice discernment, honor your intuition. And don't forget to ask. 

[00:07:02] And just because like your cousin, your best friend. Your homie is over there playing with this spirit doesn't mean that, that spirit, wants any of you, or can even help you cause certain spirits roll with us to help us through different situations, through different periods of our lives. I did not mean to get off on that, but it, I guess it needed to be said, so let's, let's get into this nighttime hygiene. 

[00:07:31] What I, a lot of what I do rests on a bedrock of spiritual and emotional hygiene learning to keep a space spiritually clear by like cleaning the floors, cleaning the floors, at least once a week with some ammonia, some salt, some lemon, if no ammonia, salt or lemon hit the floor, I can tell the difference in how we sleep and how the children act for us. 

[00:07:59] Now for us --discernment. Ammonia salt and lemon is perfect. We're going through this family is going through like a spiritual stuff. We're going through our own little excitement, emotionally, spiritually, psychologically, and ammonia and ammonia, lemon and salt clear stuff up. It keeps, it keeps, um, negativity and bad intentions and bad meaning spirits 

[00:08:29] from like attaching and hanging on and multiplying and feeding and just creating more chaos. So ammonia, lemon, and salt every week, there are other things that you can use on your floors. That will be less stripping. Cause if, if we were in a calm space, I would maybe do that once a month. But like, nah, I'm in a space where I need to do it like once a week. 

[00:08:54] So you can also work on other protective herbs. There are protective herbs. Again, your discernment, use your intuition that you can hit. You can use on the floor at least once a week. When things are bad and nobody's sleeping um, you know, I clean the bed with ammonia, lemon and salt. Um, I've never been one to work a wall, but I think it could be helpful. 

[00:09:20] I'm sure. Cleaning the walls with a mint. Yes. Yes. Clean the walls. If you need to. I don't, I don't have it like that, but like at least once a week, um, ammonia, lemon, and salt on the floors, sometimes on the beds, um, and smoking the place out, smoking the place out with, uh, frankincense and myrrh resin, frankincense myrrh, and garlic skins, frankincense myrrh, and Dragon's blood frankincesce myrrh and some benzoin when I smoke the place out 

[00:09:53] cause it helps to, it helps lift the vibe and it compliments the work of what whatever was done on the floor. Spiritual hygiene is so important. It is so important to keep your space spiritually clean because you don't. Nobody's perfect and times are hard. And if you space is spiritually clean, it prevents. 

[00:10:18] Energies and entities that feed on whatever harshness that you're going through from coming in and attaching to your pain and multiplying and feeding on it and bringing you more. You want to be able to like F like, you know, like you go to the bathroom, you want to flush, you don't want to come in and see the poop multiplied in the toilet. 

[00:10:38] Same principle, horrible way to describe it. But it's the same principle. Think of it as flushing thinking of as flushing. Spiritual hygiene. Very important to making sure your children's sleep through the night. Emotional hygiene is also important, making sure that if there's something going on, that you're being honest as a parent, what's going on and that your kids have space to talk about what's going on with them and how they feel about what's going on with you. 

[00:11:07] It's important for you to say what's going on with you. So your kids don't take chew on it in silence and process it in sleep and create some funky, funky dreams with it. And it's also important for you to just chew on your stuff. So your kids don't pick it up. Kids absorb everything. You can tell them like all day, it's important for you not to pick blah, blah, blah. 

[00:11:33] But if you're not dealing with it, they'll feel it. And then pick. So emotional hiding gene is also important to make sure that your kids sleep well and that you sleep well too, because everybody deserves good sleep. I'm a proponent of sleep because sleep is part of how I recharge spiritually. It allows me to do the things that I need to do and be who I need to be. 

[00:12:02] So that's one layer, spiritual hygiene, one layer, emotional hygiene. And also giving space for your children to talk about what their dreams are in the morning, ask them what they're dreaming. It supports them and understanding how dreams can support the development of their, their intuition and how their intuition and the divine works through them in the dream space. 

[00:12:26] It also gives them an opportunity to process what's going on and see how tuned in and how connected to the divine they are and how rich their dream life can be. I'll never forget having a dream as a kid about this woman in blue, who was like sitting at this table. And she was just telling me all this stuff. 

[00:12:53] And as a kid, like, I didn't know who that was. And I came to my daddy and I'm like, daddy, this was this woman. He's like, oh, that's your great aunt, blah, blah, blah, blah. And then I got a story and it was so beautiful. I didn't like when she was telling me, but it felt really good to have an ancestor pop up in my dream and support me. 

[00:13:16] And even the eldest, he, he has these dreams, he dreams of the future. And it's interesting having him share his dreams because they come true and it's always wonderful. To tell him you had this dream, like we're living it now, but you already had this dream. It helps him understand how powerful he is. So have your kids discuss their dreams. 

[00:13:48] It'll really help them. And it also helped you kind of peep into what you know, what's going on with them too. So we also have a nighttime routine to support, like sleep hygiene. Um, there's a prayer. Like we have a prayer where we're praying for protection at night. Um, I also pray for protection before I go to sleep. 

[00:14:13] So I pray, pray like for myself and also for the children and the eldest will pray for himself. He has it memorized, the youngest, you know, I, I don't force that there are things I force. Like I will give you a spiritual bath and I will anoint you, which I'll get you to next, but I'm not going to force you to pray annointing before the children go to sleep. 

[00:14:38] I annoint them. I have oils that I anoint them with to keep them protected as they sleep. I also, um, put whole, uh, Florida water. I spray their beds with Florida water. I spray the room with Florida water to make sure that the space stays clear. And I also keep protective things in and around their bed, under their beds. 

[00:15:04] Now the protective things can vary. Um, right now, right now, there is like some ancestral things in there to make sure that the ancestors are nearby. Should there be a problem and I'm not up yet. There's also some satchets with some herbs, some gem stones, things like black tournmaline, cinnamon bay leaves. 

[00:15:29] Um, I even got some garlic up in there. Like those sorts of things will protect you your children as they sleep, even something simple as a glass of water that you place under their bed and remind them not to drink in the morning that can, can ward off some things. And, you know, sometimes you can do all this stuff and, you know, life will still happen. 

[00:15:58] So what do you do? This is what I do. When things go really left I call in Archangel, Michael, I call in Archangel, Michael and I ask for his help. Archangel Michael shows up for me. I feel very blessed. You can call him. or whatever is divine sacred and holy I've actually done that in a dream. 

[00:16:17] I remember venturing somewhere and I had no business being, and I was like, this is not feel good. And I was like all of the divine sacred and holy, I need some help. And I was helped. So don't forget, you can always call on the divine and ask for protection and ask for assistance. And then if things have like that bad, I will smoke out their room and the apartment or the house or wherever we at with some camphor. 

[00:16:46] But. Caveats with capmhor. If you have a relationship with the helpful earth and spirits of spirit of your house, the spirits in your house that take care of your house and the helpful, hidden folk on your land that may be popping in and out your house. Cause they like you and they think you cute warn them that you're going to do the camphor. 

[00:17:08] They probably already know because they done see what happened last night. But camphor will drive away your earth spirits that are helpful to you. So you gotta be careful and warn them, warn them, just say, Hey, I'm about to smoke it out. Y'all might want to be gone for a little bit, but camphor will drive away evil spirits. 

[00:17:29] Um, you also have to be careful with Camphor and keep it away from your children because it will cause seizures. It will. You gotta be careful. Um, don't hurt yourself with camphor, but it'll, it's great for clearing the space. Lord Jesus it will clear a space. , I'm also say, you know, there's this little special dance between understanding what is the funk you're putting into a situation versus what is the funk on of the house and the land. 

[00:18:03] Because if you're going through things. Badly enough or you're going through enough over time, or there is enough of a darkness around you in, in you. Things will come to you and, and mess with you, which is why spiritual hygiene is so important. It's so important to clean your space. And as you clean your space, I forgot to mention this, clean your ass, clean yourself, clean the children for real, like give the children 

[00:18:33] spiritual bath may not be your thing. It may not be your thing to be, you know, hit the children with some hyssop rue and lavender that may not be your thing. Do whatever is your thing. Whether it's praying over the children, whether it's scrubbing them down with salt, whether it's smudging them with whatever you got, make sure that, you know, especially on the day you clean the house. 

[00:18:59] Spiritually clean the children and clean yourself. You want to again, flush the toilet to make sure all the things that would attract, um, less than loving energy to you and less than loving entities to you to keep them away because you deserve some sleep. Everybody deserves some sleep. Everybody deserves some good sleep and that's all I'm gonna say.
