The Consciousness Has Shifted...The Awakening Has Begun
This topic has come up quite frequently for me. Many friends, family and even members on this site have had questions or issues, so I figured I’d talk a little about my thoughts on it.
Being a light worker or one who works with energies, it is especially important to shield. Many of us are empaths, there are different degrees of it, but we can easily pick up on other’s energies, whether it be positive or negative. It’s just the way it is.
I have had times that I didn't protect myself and was around certain people that just flat out drained me. We all know there are energy vampires…different levels of this and I do think some are completely aware they are doing this, while others have NO clue they do it. I know of someone in the circle of friends I have that does this and is completely unaware they are like this. She has many wonderful qualities, but there are times that if I don’t ground and shield, I walk away feeling as though all the life has been sucked from me.
I believe that EVERYONE should practice this on a daily basis. We are all connected energy wise, but as individuals, we are at different frequencies and levels of vibration. When I spend the day with my best friend, I feel no need to shield from her. We are both at that same level. When I go to the store, when I know I’ll be around a group of people, or even when I come online, I make sure I am shielded and grounded, otherwise I pick up things and it can have some serious effects.
SO…even though I think most of us know how to do it, I’d still like to offer a few tips for those that need reminders or just don’t know J Remember the quote (I don’t know who said it) “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent”. This also goes with energy…nobody can send you negative energies unless you are allowing it!
One of the things I do is stand barefoot on the Earth if possible. If not, just standing straight or even sitting in the meditation position. I picture myself like a tree, with my roots connecting deep into Mother Earth. Set your intention to have any unwanted energies flow to Her and also to allow Her energies to flow into you. She is more than happy to help us with this when asked!
There are many, many ways on how to shield. Calling in your spirit guides to help protect and shield you is something that should always be done…if you aren't sure who your spirit guides are, I’d suggest meditating and focusing on that. They are here to help us and guide us.
Calling in Archangel Michael, ask him to surround you in protection of his lights. Start with white, then the colors of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Then finish with the white light. Imagine each color surrounding your entire physical body.
Using the Mirror Technique. Imagine yourself surrounded by mirrors and anything that is sent towards you is “bounced” off.
Crystals are always great!! Obsidian, black tourmaline, hematite, onyx, black kyanite, and so many more! Just search online for good shielding stones.
One thing I always do, as I do NOT want to send negative energy back towards someone that may be sending it, is I request the energies be sent to Mother Earth to disperse it and transform it into something positive. It’s what she does J
I know there are many other ways of doing this, feel free to share your ideas and what has worked for you..or if you have any questions, ask away!!
Much love and positive energies to you!!!
Great post Windstar!
Always good to keep reminding each other of this simple but so very essential work. We must keep our selves safe and shielded, cleansed and clear. Either one is a light warrior or one is not, and a warrior is impeccable and very disciplined in keeping him/herself safe and balanced or one cannot do the work or be effective. Its like having all the cures for all the parasites and diseases in your cupboard but not taking any of them. You will be beset by issues, and critters, and all sorts of drains that can so easily be sorted. Ive been doing this for a good few years now and Ive yet to find a single issue that cannot be sorted by simple daily psychic hygene.
Ive already shared many of my techniques for this in the Psychic self defense group, as have many others, and the key is to develop your own routine and do it daily. It doesnt have to take ages, just a 5-10 minutes a day once you are doing it regularly, with a thorough clean out of body and blessing of home every few months.
Personally I wouldnt use reflective shielding, but as Wind says its all preference. I use a shield egg shaped that is golden inside and impervious matte black outside to both conceal and allow anything negative sent directly to me to drain off into the earth so I dont enter into an exchange, but I like the idea of asking for it to be transformed too. I also have a large shield over the whole house, that keeps out any troublesome critters and such, anchored using cyrstals and maintained by certain deities with whom I work.
This is my post about chakra balancing and sealing, which accompanied with the golden light med I personally feel is a perfect daily rountine to keep one safe and centered.
I shield by turning on my empathic heart energy but i sometimes overwhelm people. I am trying to figure out how to filter out the negative & allow the good, but i am puzzled by this & dont know. I guess in balancing my empathic heart shield to recognize good, love & link to it & bounce off the bad. It takes much concentration & i need to focus & be mindful of my living self & not off thinking in another world like usual.
I used to have this problem.. people would find me way too intense.. they would think I was angry or crazy when i was just feeling really excited or passionate. This was before I learnt about properly using the hara-line exercise and chakra toning, and especially using circulation of light regularly Getting ALL the energy centres vibrating in harmony, and equal distribution of energy, means you are earthed, you feel in sync with all levels, and you are connected to your higher intuition. So you feel rooted, connected, you relate, love, communicate, think, and stay silent when you need to, all in harmony with yourself and those around you. Also, simply learning to listen way more than i talk was a big step forward for me! :D
Day dreaming a lot is a sign of not earthing enough. Its great to have a good imagination, but as I always say, feet in the ground and head in the sky :)
Completely agree. People can go their whole life not realising that the reason they feel depressed or tired is actually because they are empathic and like a sponge. I do think you have to be consistant with it though, like your immune system it takes time for it to get stronger. The more you ground or shield the better it works in my opinion.
One can also use essences for cord cutting and protection too along with crystals. I use both together. :)
There's also essences for grounding, lower chakras - and whatever else might be associated with being grounded. I've used those too - again in conjunction with crystals.
One other thing - I know this wouldn't be for everyone, but also for grounding, I try to wear the same style footwear I wore back then. I'm looking at getting a pair of Finnish 'Lapland' type boots hopefully within a year's time as I had memories of wearing them during the 19th c. (I already have footwear that's like what I would have worn during the 20th c.).
I tend to ground differently than most others I suppose as I wasn't reincarnated by birth and so have no that 'anchoring' by having a birth family, etc. - the connection to family, growing up, and even the connection to one's 'homeland'. So I try to figure out different ways of grounding myself.
Thank you so much its so helpful, I have had concerns about protection lately so perfect timing for your post. I used to do Maharic Shield will start doing my routine 2 times/day for 3 months than once/day just waiting when I can add it much going on for me so..
The Good Force be with you!
Nice posts, Yshatar & Windstar! Thanks for sharing & keep it up!
Live forever & prosper! Alleluia! Amen! <3 O:) * (Y)
Remember, we can only reflect from what lies within... that being said, if u r amping up ur heart energy & there are chakra issues yet 2 be addressed (as we all have them, this is part of 3D programming) then u r also amping up the wound keys u may inevitably carry.
As an individual who has undergone intense training in clearing/releasing old paradigm programs within the energy centers & worked with teachers on slowly & intentionally raising kundalini over a period of a few years... I can attest 2 the magic inherent in each detail. I would encourage u 2 look deep within that heart of urs & c what may be ready 2 come 2 the surface 4 further evaluation. It is imperative at 1 point or another 2 begin clearing & releasing the patterns which no longer r Serving our Highest Good. We all have 2 do our own Work. Plz do not hesitate 2 contact/friend me if u have any questions on this information... I Am always here 2 Serve.
& absolutely! Keep up with the daily balancing, grounding, sheilding work... this is maintenance 4 us all & should never be taken 4 granted. Some of the simplest techniques can provide the most powerful results! It is all in the intention, of course... & the more belief & usage staked in2 a particular technique simply adds 2 the energy available 4 its use.
Many Blessings 2 u...
Thank you so much, I needed this, I love the tree and that Mother Earth will change the energy. I will practise this. Blessed be
