There are many reasons why you might find it useful to protect your spiritual energy system from external influences
Perhaps you’re a naturally sensitive person, or empath. You may find yourself easily affected by other people, situations, and environments? Maybe you have a friend, relative or yourself, are in a situation that is leaving you feeling drained and tired? Conflicts at work, stressful situations, and the energetic bombardment of commuting in a busy city can impact your divine energies.
The good news is that there are many ways in which you can protect your energy. Here are our 8 of our favourite techniques that pack an energetic punch when you want to cleanse, energise and protect yourself.
1. Use the spiritual energy and power of love
If you feel you are near negativity, aware that you’re being drained or feeling sensitive bolster, you can protect your energy field by saying to yourself “what’s it like to glow with love.” Enable your unconscious mind to creatively play with the concept of glowing with love by using this phrase. You will find that you immediately connect with the spiritual energy of love, and become a beacon of loving light.
Try a power word such as ‘love’ or ‘light’ and hold that word in the forefront of your mind as you fully connect with the energy and frequency of it.
You can even say a mantra such as “My heart is open and the love of the universe flows through me.” When we say any of these words or phrases we instantly connect with their spiritual energy and their power. Light always overcomes darkness and visualising yourself as a beacon of love recharges your energy whilst neutralising the energies you’re surrounded by.
2. Connect with your own rhythm of breathing
When you’re near someone negative or in a place of negativity, it’s easy to get energetically depleted. You can stay centred, connected, and sealed off from these influences by doing breath work. Even when you’re in the company or environment that is having an effect on you, try these simple steps:
- Pay attention to your breath, noticing the flow of air in and out of your nostrils
- As you inhale imagine a wonderfully golden, loving light filling your lungs
- As you exhale visualise any negative leaving your body
- Imagine that the golden light overflows from your lungs and fills up your entire body so you radiate with light
- Continue until you feel strong, centred and clear
3. Seal off your spiritual energy field
This simple creative visualisation totally seals off your sacred energy field and gives you protection. Just visualise yourself standing inside a bubble. The bubble is clear, flexible, and strong. The bubble creates a powerful shield around you and moves with you wherever you go. You can also add to the visualisation by imaging that the top of the bubble is connected to the universe. Imagine that it’s connected with a thread of golden light, so that it is effectively hooked up to a permanent stream of cosmic energy. You can change the colour of the bubble pink for love, blue for healing, and red for energy. In fact, you can be as creative as you like with your visualisation adding whatever elements inspire you.
4. Wear a cloak of protection
This visualisation is ideal when you’re commuting, shopping or going anywhere where you feel you need to shield your energy. Imagine pulling on a full-length cloak made from the darkest shade of blue – like the midnight blue of the night sky. This cloak has a hood, that you can imagine pulling up so that your head (crown chakra) is also protected. The lining of the cloak could be magical – maybe pink, silver, golden or multicoloured. It can be decorated on the inside and out with magical symbols.
5. Plug into divine nature
The biological clock of the body needs to be constantly calibrated to the earth, this has been shown by research. Also, as it does with all life on this planet. By simply taking off your shoes and connecting with the earth, you can fill your body with negatively charged free electrons. Not only does this help you to fight the effects of ageing, and inflammation. This will also clear and energise the body, leaving you grounded and refreshed. You will feel stronger and more anchored. Not only this, the technique will help you feel protected from negative spiritual energy.
6. Immerse yourself in an Epsom salt bath
For this one, you will need to buy yourself a bag of Epsom salts from a local chemist. Salt is an amazing product for cleansing and grounding. Once you have your salt, adding a cup or two to your bath can cleanse your sacred energy and leave yourself feeling refreshed, cleansed, and grounded. You can add to the whole experience, by setting the intention of making this kind of bath a regular ritual. Begin this ritual with the intention to cleanse and ground. Anything that we do with the energy of intention has powerful results within us in mind, body, and spirit. As well as within the universe that we are one with.
7. Use a smoky quartz crystal
Smokey Quartz is an excellent stone for removing negativity. The stone removes negative spiritual energy and transforms it into positive energy. It is also a very protective, and grounding stone. Smoky quartz brings physical and psychic protection as well as protection from negative energy. It also protects and cleanses the aura and astral bodies and can be used for psychic shielding. You can carry this gemstone in your pocket, have it as an ornament on your desk, or wear it on your body. However, regular energetic cleansing of gemstones has to be done. You can do this by placing them in a bowl of salt overnight, this is one method to cleanse.
8. Invoke the power and protection of Archangel Michael
Archangel Michael is one of the seven Archangels. A fiercely powerful warrior known as the Prince of the Archangels, and he represents strength, courage and protection. Simply by saying the words “Archangel Michael protect me now” you invoke this spirit guide. He will stand to the right-hand side of you with his sword, and shield ever ready to guard and protect you. You can visualise him surrounding you, with his deep blue cloak. Visualise this for both, physical and spiritual protection. He will bring you power, inner strength, and protection.
It’s important to remember that life is the perfect blend of negative and positive.
Light and the dark so in just the same way that your energy field can be drained and compromised, it can also be illumined and energised. Being around uplifting positive people, activities and environments will boost and energise you. It’s about finding the right balance that works for you as well as making sure you look after yourself and spend time with people that add to your quality of life.
