As modern day humans we are very concerned with protecting ourselves. We lock our doors and windows before bed, we encourage the practice of safe sex, we set up firewalls and anti virus software on our computers, we guard our hearts so they don’t shatter, and we even lock our cellphones with a pin number! The one thing a lot of us don’t protect is our energy. It’s so important to keep your energy field clear of negativity and outside influences which can leave us feeling drained, depressed and, after prolonged exposure, can even make us physically ill. This is especially important to empathic people or any individual who is sensitive to energy.
Every person has an aura, a field of energy surrounding him or her. Whether you can see it or not it is there. When you meet people those energies mingle. They intertwine and, if you go unprotected, the energies can leave pieces of themselves in your aura. If you’re in the same space as a negative person or someone directs a negative intention toward you, it’s going to end up in your energy field. Negative places can also affect you similarly. This also goes for the people you love and hold dear. If they need comfort or advice you should give it to them, but be sure not to let their problems affect you on an energetic level. You can still be compassionate while keeping yourself safe.
Here are a few things you can do to help you ward off unwanted energy:
At the start of your day, take 1-3 minutes to visualize a bright white light beaming down from above. Imagine this light filling your body and then totally encompassing you in a protective “shell” or “bubble”. Throughout the day, be sure to do a mini-visualization of this to recharge the “bubble” and keep it full of positive energy.
Hematite is a grounding and protecting stone. You can wear a piece of jewelry made of Hematite or just carry a piece of it around in your pocket or purse throughout the day. Just make sure to cleanse it every now and again.
Ask for help. Your guides and spirit are always there to help you. Whenever you feel like you need some help or you’re entering a particularly negative situation ask them to protect and watch over you. It works every single time.
Set an intention. Wake up every day and say something like this: “I surround myself in the white light of God’s love and divine protection. I’m impervious to all negative energy I may encounter today”. That’s my own personal intention I set daily. Customize it to fit your needs, but keep it simple!
Pray. Be Spiritual. No matter what your belief is, keeping a close connection to the divine is an awesome way to enrich your life and make sure you’re uber protected without even having to bat an eyelash.
You can use any or all of these suggestions at once. There aren’t any hard and fast rules when it comes to protecting your energy…just make sure you remember to do it!
