Here's what you might expect during your 21-day spiritual cleanse from August 28th to September 17th, which overlaps with the Mercury retrograde from August 23rd to September 14th:
Week 1: August 28 - September 3 - Setting the Foundation During this period, you may experience a heightened awareness of the need to ground yourself and set clear intentions. You may feel a sense of miscommunications or technological glitches, so during this time make time for writing it out, doing mirror work and do that grounding work. This is Root Chakra and Throat Chakra work. Pick those crystals that support you and stay centered. Expect to feel more in tune with your intentions and emotions. So this is a good time to WRITE IT OUT.
Days 1-3: Grounding and Intention Setting
Activities: Spend 15 minutes each day morning do some deep breathe work, stretching exercises and grounding meditation. Reflect on your intentions for this cleanse. Check out our stretch it out videos for the week.

Days 4-7: Inner Reflection and Release
Activities: Journal for 20 minutes daily, reflecting on past communication challenges and letting go of any lingering negative emotions.

Week 2: September 4 - September 10 - Communication Harmony As you focus on mindful communication and creative expression, you might find that your interactions become more meaningful and your ability to express yourself improves.

Week 3: September 11 - September 17 - Embracing Transformation As Mercury retrograde begins to wind down, you may encounter situations that require you to adapt and embrace change.

Throughout the entire cleanse, you can expect a sense of empowerment and resilience. Keep in mind:
Mercury retrograde's effects can vary from person to person, and not everyone experiences significant disruptions during this time.
Your positive mindset, intention setting, and spiritual practices can greatly influence your experience during this period.
