Have you ever found yourself stressed, angry, or just unsettled for no apparent reason? The answer may be found in the people around you.
As we interact in our world, we come in contact with a wide range of energies and emotions of those around us. While it is important to witness others and their journeys, we run into discomfort when we (usually unintentionally) beginto take on others energy and emotions as our own.
Finding a way to conscientiously protect myself has made an intense difference in my day-to-day interactions, and while I am still having meaningful, compassionate interactions with people and clients, I am able to remain my own sentient being!
The goal of this visualization exercise is to strengthen the aura, release stress and anxiety, and block negative energy, so let's dive in:
To begin, visualize a bubble formed around you, spurring from the top of your head and wrapping around your feet. Visualize this bubble filling with bright, protective, and loving white light. If you believe in spiritual figures (angels, guardians, guides, etc.), you can visualize this figure adding its own energetic protection to it. As that bubble fills with light, set the intention that you can release energy out through the shield, but nothing can penetrate it unless it serves your highest good. Take a deep breath, bask in the light you just created for yourself, and enjoy your day! As you interact with people, visualize peoples' negativity bouncing off your shield, leaving you unaffected!
Throughout the day, when you feel you need to check back in, practice deep breathing while you re-visualize your bubble filling and strengthening once more.
I cannot recommend this technique enough, peeps! Especially for people who work with the public (or overbearing co-workers) on a daily basis, whether it is sales, customer service, bodywork, energy-healers, anything really. The extra wonderful thing about this visualization practice is that you can do this anywhere, anytime... your commute, your office, grocery-store line, wherever!
Do you have any experiences you can recall where your mood has drastically changed, likely due to taking on an outside energy you came into contact with? Otherwise, do you have a similar routine that helps you remain level-headed around negativity?
