Everyone wants to be empathic, energy sensitive or intuitive until they start having problems. With all the hype about awakening and becoming conscious, people have been overlooking the core teachings of energy. It's great to start meditating, to learn to see auras, to tap into energetic fields, but do you know how to protect yourself?
Over the years I have met many people that come with the same problem.
By the time people come seek help they are at their end emotionally and it's no surprise. It is draining to be open to taking in everything around you, but no one taught you how to filter. How can you be that shining beacon of light when you're feeling like it's too peopley and you can't deal with it?
Everyday take time to ground yourself. Close your eyes and visualize roots growing from your feet, down into the earth. Allow the sensation of heaviness to let you sink deeper. Imagine the cool dampness of the earth supporting you, making you feel strong and stable. Imagine the earth feeding you nurturing energy that comforts you. This is the power of the earth. This is grounding. See it as your anchor keeping you connected to the source of nurturing strength beneath you.
Find the area of energy located just above the naval, your solar plexus chakra. This is the center of your will, the strength of your character. Breathe into that space and allow your mind to become quiet. Continue to allow the energy of the roots to rise up into this center. This energy feeds your confidence and gives you courage. As you become quiet your inner voice of intuition will become stronger. It will give you clarity and help you to be confident in your decisions. When you are centered you know what you want and stand strong. The ideas and thoughts of others will not shake you.
Once you feel anchored and centered in you, you can begin to expand your energy field or aura. Visualize the energy in you increasing filling your body from head to toe. Then begin to see this energy filling the space around you like a bubble. This bubble becomes your protective shield. There are 2 main shields I recommend for beginners, a rose quartz colored shield or a mirrored shield.
The rose quartz color holds the vibration of soft loving energy. As you visualize this bubble around you, see the space as this color. Set the intention for this energy to only allow loving energy to enter your personal bubble. It acts as a filter, and will require clearing at some point.
The mirror shield is extra protection for those highly sensitive to taking on the feelings and emotions of others. Outside of this rose bubble, picture a thin metallic liquid being poured over it. This metallic liquid becomes a reflective surface so that any energy coming at you is lovingly reflected back to the person sending it. The loving energy you created within the rose color bubble stays unaffected.
You Got This
The entire process is focused on visualization and intention. The more you practice the quicker it will become as you become more familiar with the energies. Ideally you will want to get to a point where you can simply repeat, "Ground, Center & Shield" and feel each of them as quickly as you say it. Practice this before going out and notice how different you feel. Not only will it shield you from taking on the emotions of others, but you will notice that your inner strength and willpower will keep you on your spiritual path.
