Protection, Cleansing, and Clearing Your Energy
Everything is energy. Quantum physics show us that everything in the universe is energy and electrical currents. Electrons behave like waves in a sea of energy. Emotions are energy in motion. Our personal energy is composed of our physical body and our bio-energetic field or our aura.
When our energy is low we feel run down, lethargic, sick and depressed. When our energy is high we are happy and vibrant with lots of energy to burn. Our energy is easily influenced by those around us, the emotions we feel, and how we live our life.
Negative emotions can cause pain and dis-ease. Attachments happen when we let our emotions control us, instead of understanding and dealing with them.
Protecting our energy is a form of self-love. It helps us to learn to walk away from conflict and drama by detaching without emotion.
An energy drain happens when we are around people and feel drained, tired, and sick after spending time with them. It is common for those who work in hospitals, care facilities, teaching child care, and counselors to experience energy drain. People in these industries can suffer from “burn out” where their energy is completely depleted and they no longer have the energy to work in their industry.
Someone cannot take your energy unless you allow it, but if you are unaware of protection, your energy drains easily. It is important to learn protection tricks so that you can combat the situation the next time it arises.
Practical Protection Methods
- Visualization – the ability to open one’s mind using a series of images. This can be done in guided meditation or in quiet contemplation. Trust the intent you have set and have faith that you are well protected.
- Energy Separation – This technique should be done on a daily basis or as needed. You can do this technique with a single person or with a group of people. Begin by saying, “My energy whole and complete back to me.” Take a few deep breaths, until the shift feels complete. Then say, “(Name of Person)’s energy whole and complete back to them.” Again take a few deep breaths, until the shift feels complete.
- Cutting cords – this can be done through visualization and helps to clear attachments to other people, similar to energy separation.
- Crystals – can be worn or carried, placed around the home, or in the car. Good crystals for protection include but are not limited to black kyanite, black tourmaline, brown tourmaline, clear quartz, fluorite, lapis lazuli, obsidian, onyx, selenite, smoky quartz, or tigers eye.
