Protection of self is a topic often discussed in group settings. Questions arise, centered around possibilities and the options of how to defend oneself. Home defense tools, learning new skills that help deter and lessen potential harm and creating an awareness of our own surroundings that encourages safety.
But, have you ever given thought to protecting your own energy and emotional body?
When we protect ourselves energetically, we learn to reclaim our power and thwart off the harmful negativity running rampant within the energy field. Others who operate on the lower energy sources, drawing upon the negative currents of energy can impact you if you give it power.
Energy is everywhere. It is scientifically proven to be in our bodies and the metaphysical world, as well as serving as a source of power in material times. It is the feeling you get when you walk into a room; a field of many vibrations and frequencies, similar to that of radio waves.
When you step into a chaotic place, you may become anxious, disoriented, distracted, mood shifts, stressed and even exhibit irritation and anger. This is normal because you are feeling the vibration of the place.
Conversely, when you step into a space of calm or peace, you may find yourself breathing slowly and in harmony with the planet. Again, you feel the vibration of the space.
This is frequency and vibration, and is the reason so many of us can be happy one moment and then feel stressed out or uncomfortable when a certain individual enters a room.
Think of it like turning on the radio. Once you hit the button, you may be tuned into a station that produces static or even a talk show or a type of music you do not prefer.
This is the frequency. For many, we quickly change the station, moving through other frequencies until we find the one frequency that resonates. It makes us feel a certain way.
With a radio, if you are only hearing static or feeling irritated by certain music, you are free to turn the radio off. The music is still playing, however you have protected yourself from it penetrating your ears and you no longer hear it.
This same tool can be implemented with other frequencies and energies by enacting the power of self protection.
Self-protection is using certain practices or tools that shut out the negative or disruptive frequencies that you may be experiencing. There are many tools, some of which are more comfortable and easy to use than others, the most common and effective being the sphere of protection.
Like a forcefield on a space ship, the sphere of protection is a circular energy barrier that creates a protective fortress around our own sacred space. It is available to us all, however many forget its presence during times of need.
It can be used as a preventative tool or something called upon in the midst of conflict.
It is always available.
A simple strategy to enact an energy sphere is to simple visualize yourself inside a clear bubble. You can be sitting, standing or in movement inside the bubble. It matters not. What is most important is that you see yourself encased within a transparent circular shield of protection.
When learning to create your bubble, taking the time to practice visualizing during meditation or calm can help the process greatly. This is a highly individual process.
For me, I see my outline sitting inside a circular ring full of pink and gold. This visual puts me at ease and leaves me feeling peace, as if I’ve just turned off the radio. The barrier around me serves as a forcefield where missiles of negativity strike and dissolve.
I use this visual protection when I encounter conflict or a situation that has a potential to be conflicting. This may include a necessary discussion, dealing with the mood of someone else or walking into the mall on a crowded day.
Recently, I made a purchase from a local store they required extensive background checks and a lengthy process. The staff behind the counter were very busy and stressed, however the staff member assisting me was full of negative energy and contempt. This was apparent in his mannerism, BUT I FELT his energy.
Each time I made eye contact with him, I felt his contempt for me as a female. It was very uncomfortable.
Because the process was lengthy and I had a minor issue that delayed it by 10 minutes, the irritation level surrounding him and even my beloved became elevated. I called upon my sphere and amazingly, I felt instant protection.
I was there for nearly two hours, standing and waiting, hungry and thirsty. However, the bubble proved successful in keep my energy safe.
Self-protection, specifically in dealing with other’s intensity or negativity, is essential to not allowing someone or something to take your power.
If you are calm and high-vibing, and yet someone else’s moods or negative energy (irritation, contempt, fear, anxiety, intensity, etc.) comes into contact with your unprotected self, you have the potential to rapidly be dragged into THEIR DRAMA!
This not only brings you down, but it also feeds into the collective source of negativity, making it more powerful.
I believe in self-protection and self-preservation. This means physically taking the steps to prevent possible negative impact as well as energetically doing the same.
Protect your home. Protect your family. Protect your life. Protect yourself and your energy!
