How to Perform an Egg Cleanse

Ever wondered how an ordinary egg could be a potent tool for purifying your energy and spirit? In this guide, we’ll crack the secrets of egg cleansing wide open. But before we get cracking (sorry, couldn’t resist), let’s start with the basics.

First of all, what is it?

Well, an egg cleanse is an energy-cleansing ritual where an egg is used to absorb negative energy, bad vibes, or emotional blockages from a person’s body or aura. The egg acts as a sponge, soaking up these negative energies. Afterward, the egg is cracked into water, and the patterns and shapes formed in the egg whites and yolk are interpreted to gain insights into the energy and the person’s emotions. It’s a way to refresh and purify one’s spiritual and emotional well-being.

This ancient practice has been simmering in the cauldron of history for centuries, and many different cultures have their own versions of it. From Aztec shamans in Mexico to Greek Orthodox Christians, people have been using variations of this method to ward off negative energy and evil spirits.

Here are some of the reasons why an egg cleansing is the best way to hit that cosmic reset button for your life:

Removing Negative Energy and Bad Luck Imagine sweeping away all the negativity that’s been clinging to you like an unwanted tagalong.

Cleansing Your Aura or Spirit It’s like giving your soul a bubble bath, washing away the grime of daily life.

Promoting Physical and Emotional Healing Sometimes, it’s not just your aura that needs a little TLC. Your body and emotions can benefit too.

Ready to try your first egg cleanse? Then let’s get cracking (seriously, the puns end here).

Egg Cleansing Ritual

What you’ll need:

  • An egg
  • Some incense
  • Water
  • A clear cup/glass

What to do:

Step 1: Cleansing Yourself and the Egg
Before you start scrubbing away the negative vibes, cleanse yourself, the egg, and the cup. Do this by lighting the incense and swirling it around the cup, passing the egg through the smoke, and allowing your body to soak up the sanctifying energies of the smoke.

Step 2: The Rolling Process
Hold the egg and begin rolling it over your body, from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. Feel the energy flowing, and visualise it absorbing any negativity. Think of it like an energetic lint roller (if that helps). Do this until you feel you’ve covered most, if not all, of your skin.

Step 3: Breaking the Egg into Water:
After the rolling process, crack the egg into a glass of water and leave it for seven minutes. The patterns and shapes formed will reveal the story of your energy. It’s like your spirit’s Rorschach test; what do you see?

Interpreting the Results

Time for some detective work! Study the egg whites, the yolk, and any shapes or discolorations. Each element holds clues about your energy and what needs attention.

Blood Spots or Discolorations

These spots could indicate past traumas or negative experiences. This is the egg showing where you’ve been wounded, and telling you it’s time to heal. It could also mean you have evil spirits surrounding you, or someone has attempted to send baneful magic your way.

Cloudy or Murky Egg Whites

If the egg whites are cloudy, this suggests that your energy is clouded by confusion or uncertainty. This means the bad vibes are likely coming from within and it’s probably time for some clarity and perspective change on your part.


Cobwebs in the whites of the egg indicate that someone has been wishing you ill or hoping for your misfortune. It could also mean that someone has placed the evil eye on you.


Bubbles can indicate spiritual or emotional cleansing. Like shaking up a bottle of soft drink, it’s a sign of releasing pent-up emotions and negative energy. Bubbles indicate a successful cleanse; the bad juju has been absorbed.

Needles or Spikes

Pointed, spiky shapes mean that there is someone in your life who has extremely negative feelings about you – even if they don’t practice spirituality or witchcraft this could still be manifesting in your life, feeling like a curse.


If some eggshell is floating in your glass, it means you have protection around you.


If the water surrounding the egg is clear, and there are no significant shapes in the glass, this means that no energy was absorbed and either you need to try again, or seek a different way to interpret what is affecting your life.

Interpreting these shapes is like tuning into your inner frequencies. It’s a personal journey, so let your intuition be your guide. Pay attention to your emotions and thoughts as you observe the egg’s story unfolding.

Egg Cleanse After-Care

  • Disposing of the Egg and Materials: Once your egg has done its work, don’t just toss it in the trash. Bury it in the earth.
  • Reflecting on the Experience: Take a moment to journal about your egg-cleansing journey. What did you learn? How do you feel? This self-reflection can offer valuable insights.

As you wrap up your egg cleanse, keep in mind that this practice isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s a tool in your witchy toolbox, alongside spells, meditation, yoga, or any other practice that resonates with you.

As we conclude this egg-citing journey (I lied, I’m not sorry), we encourage you to explore this ancient practice further. Some do an egg-cleanse on new moons, when beginning a new chapter or journey, or just when they need a good reset. Some will only leave the egg for three minutes before they begin interpretation; adapt it to your own spiritual or personal needs and let it become a new tool for protection, discovery, and growth.
