Hello Connect Balance Grow Tribe
Today I wanted to chat to you about energy protection, actually I am going to refer to it as Energy Management as I feel that one of the best ways to take care of & balance ourselves is to be conscious of our own energy.
Whether or not we are aware of it we are constantly putting out & receiving energy. To quote Albert Einstein “Everything is energy that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality that you want & you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, this is physics”.
A lot of clients who come to see me are not energetically IN their bodies, & who can blame them?! Being in a body can be truly uncomfortable especially when there is pain, unresolved emotional blocks, anxiety & depression just to name a few aspects! One of the reasons I feel we are so disconnected, ungrounded & out of touch with our energy centres & pathways is that we have forgotten how important it is to manage our energetic selves.
As an empath, someone who is very sensitive to the energy of others & the emotional climate of what is going on around me, learning to protect my energy has not only allowed me to understand what emotions, feelings & sensations are mine compared to those of others but also to ground myself & be fully present in my body. I check, balance & manage my energy every day, there is no way I could show up & hold space for others if I didn’t, it’s right up there with my self-care as much as cleaning my teeth & putting on deodorant. I notice the days I don’t balance & ground my energy. Sometimes it takes me back to the days before I knew about energy & how to manage it. I used to feel like I was constantly off with the fairies & not mindfully present.
This is the visualisation that I use in the shower each morning. It uses the chakras which are the energy centres of our bodies. By balancing our energy on the inside, it better prepares us to balance the energy from others that comes our way throughout our day. It is important to remember that we don’t only take on energy from people we see each day but from social media, what we read & see, especially the news.
Focus on your Soul Star Chakra which sits right above your head. Imagine pure white, gold or whatever colour comes to mind, as light flowing from your Soul Star Chakra into your Crown Chakra at the top of your head.
Let this beautiful energy flow down to your Third Eye Chakra in the centre of your forehead just above your eyebrows. (If you are a Harry Potter fan it’s like in the last movie when they are protecting the Hogwarts Castle & the protection spell kind of oozes over the walls).
From here allow the energy to flow down to your Throat Chakra at the centre of your neck.
Allow the energy to make its way down to your Heart Chakra at the centre of your chest.
Let it continue to make its way down to your Solar Plexus Chakra which sits at the bottom of your rib cage.
The energy then flows to your Sacral Chakra which is just below your belly button.
The energy continues down to your Root Chakra at the base of your spine.
From here allow the energy to flow down each of your legs & out the souls of your feet.
Let it continue down into the earth past your Earth Star Chakra which sits 3 feet below the souls of your feet.
The energy now finds a beautiful crystal buried deep in the earth. Allow the energy to wrap itself around the crystal & absorb the energy that it has grounding you.
When you are ready pull this energy back up through the earth to the souls of your feet.
Pull it up your legs & allow it to energise your Root Chakra.
From here allow the energy to continue moving upwards to your Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra & then let it sit in your Heart Chakra & set the intention that this Earth Energy will connect & ground you, protecting you & your energy as you go throughout your day living your life in the best possible way.
After I have grounded my energy, I set the intension for my guides, angels, the earth & universe to assist, guide, protect, support & love me as I need to carry out my day. It is important to mention that doing all of this doesn’t mean that I don’t face challenges from time to time. What happens is that it gives me a choice or options about how I am going to respond energetically when things don’t go to plan. Sometimes I let the emotions hit me & wallow in self-pity & other days I make the choice to transform the energy so that I look at it from a different perspective & work out the why.
At the end of each day we need to love ourselves compassionately no matter which way we chose to respond. The more we practice managing our energy the quicker & easier it becomes to bounce back when things get challenging.
The key to energy management is knowing what your energy feels like, that way when other energy comes into your field you can acknowledge it & release it back into the Universe with love & light.
Enjoy your Friday, be fantastically kind 🦊
Have a great weekend
