To protect or not to protect, that is the question. There are so many differences in opinion on this topic, and it seems people from the old energy use (and swear by) putting a protective ball of light around them.
That is one method you’ve probably heard of already, but it’s one that I don’t use. I’m not saying this doesn’t work, and I’m know it does for some people, however it’s never resonated with me so I don’t do it.
In this article I’m offering you alternative methods, in case the protective ball of light doesn’t resonate with you either.
And frankly, I’m only using the word ‘protection’ so we all know what we’re talking about, but in my personal practice I don’t use that word. I feel it conjures up fear and the idea that there are many energies, forces, and people that we need protecting from. This is a fear based approach and thus breeds more fear.
We are powerfully enlightened beings (even if we don’t feel like it most of the time), and we don’t need to be scared of anything or anyone.
We can learn to master our own energy, grow and expand it at will, use it to transform and uplift heavy forces in the world, and raise our own vibration and that of the planet.
In light of that, my top 3 methods for managing, maintaining or enlivening your energy include;
- Heart Chakra, love based protection. Practice building a tangible relationship with your heart chakra. You can do this by regularly focusing your attention on the centre of your chest and breathing into it. Grow quiet and breathe through any hard walls that you may feel around it, and keep breathing into your chest until you feel it soften. Once your heart has softened, use your exhale to expand loving energy from your heart, around your body. Expand it out so far and wide that it stretches out your aura and energy field, filling it with love.
- Send love to the other person, place or thing. Whatever you feel you might need protection from, send love to instead. This bolsters your connection to your own power and cuts through any psychic pulls or negative energy that may have been directed your way. You’ll be doing wonders to the consciousness of humankind if each time you feel threatened, frustrated, angry you send love instead of playing out any other reaction.
- Clear the energy you’ve picked up. Once you notice you have picked up some heavy, or unhelpful energy use whatever technique works for you to either change and transform the energy, or you can clear it. For more information on how to do this go to my other articles: “Do you take on other people’s energy” or “Top 5 Methods to Clear Energy” .
The key is not to be afraid of heavy, dark or negative energies (and people for that matter). It is time for us to realise our power, and to not cower in fear or hide because we’re scared of what may happen to us.
A daily practice of connecting into love and your heart chakra will help raise your vibration, which in turn will have a big impact on how you feel. It’s possible to raise your vibration so much that you are never brought down by ‘negative people’, places or events.
You are the Queen of your Internal Palace and frankly, it’s time we let ourselves know that, feel that, and live it.
We can reclaim what’s always been ours and grow in love, using all experiences – the good, the bad and even the ugly – as tools from which we learn.
With love to you all,
