As the autumn equinox nears, I find myself amazed at how time seems to be flying by so quickly. Although I love summer, fall is definitely my favorite time of year. The leaves are beginning to change here in Northeast Pennsylvania, reminding me why I chose to move here in the first place. Watching God’s handy work in the mountains that surround me still takes my breath away even after living here for the past ten years. Although I am able to see God’s love everywhere, I find it necessary to protect my energy every now and then. If I begin to ignore my duty to myself, of protecting my light, I can begin to feel depleted, sad, angry, and so many other undesirable things.
I practice a daily routine to ensure that my energy stays as high as possible, in the vibration of peace, love and joy. For me, daily meditation and yoga, have simply changed my life. And the best thing is that you don’t even have to spend any money as there are so many free meditations and yoga videos online. One of my favorite guided meditations is Deva Premal’s 21 Day Mantra Meditation. Granted, it’s not one of the free ones, but I had to share one of my favorites. It is perfect for anyone who wants to begin a daily meditation practice as each day has a different focus from the next. You may be chanting to remove blocks one day and chanting to welcome in abundance the next. Deva’s voice is so soothing and beautiful and just resonates with my soul. She explains each mantra before she begins singing them but trust me, your soul will understand them even if you don’t. It’s definitely worth every penny as you can listen to them over and over. Here’s where you can find it:
So, now that we’ve discussed the importance of adopting a meditation and/or yoga practice, I wanted to move into some tips on how to clear and protect your energy. I use each of these from time to time and have tried to explain them in as much detail as possible. I would suggest trying each one several times to see if you can begin to sense a shift in your energy.
1. Clearing Your Energy
Light Bath: Sit quietly and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths in through your nose and out through your nose. Imagine a beautiful light coming down from above and entering in the top of your head. Envision this light moving down your body, inside and out, clearing anything negative or toxic in and around your body. Imagine this light moving all the way down through your body and out of the bottoms of your feet. This light not only carries all toxins and negative energy out of your body, but transmutes it into beautiful healing energy, which it carries down into Mother Earth. Take a few more deep breaths and picture this light moving from heaven to earth through your body. You are now one with the light. Express gratitude for the cleansing that has just taken place and open your eyes when you’re ready. Do this as many times as you need throughout the day. You can do this at home, at work, or while sitting in traffic (someone will honk when it’s time to move again). It only takes a few moments and will make a world of difference! I do this every day and sometimes several times per day if I find myself surrounded by negativity. It makes a huge difference!
2. Epsom Salt Baths:
Place about 1 cup of epsom salt in hot water (as hot as you can stand). Lay in bath for 20 mins and allow all of the toxins to leave your body. Lately, I’ve been taking epsom baths just about every other day and am feeling fantastic! Remember to drink lots of water before and after your bath or you may become dehydrated.
Sea Salt Baths: Place about 1 cup of sea salt in hot a water (as hot as you can stand). Lay in bath for 20 mins. Our bodies LOVE sea salt and your body will thank you for allowing it to soak up all the love.
3. Sage or Palo Santo:
Light sage (I use white sage) or palo santo and swish it around your body, from head to toe. Even better if you can clear your room or home on a regular basis. I personally prefer palo santo but either will work. I clear my home daily, sort of a quick clearing on the first floor where I see clients, and clear my entire home weekly from bottom to top. Believe me, if I don’t, I can tell! Emotions will be running high (and I don’t mean a good high LOL). You can find both white sage and palo santo on amazon.
4. Cut cords with Archangel Michael:
So many of us have cords that are connected to other people, situations, emotions, negative thought patterns, etc. All you need to do is find a quiet place, close your eyes, and ask Archangel Michael for his assistance. An example prayer might be, “Archangel Michael, thank you for cutting cords that are no longer serving my highest good. I ask that you clear them quickly, easily, and effortlessly and that everyone involved be filled up with love and light. Thank you. Amen.” You may get ideas or visions of who or what cords are connected to. Honor these thoughts and ideas as they are Divine guidance and be willing to cut cords and let go. Archangel MIchael isn’t able to cut cords of love so no worries about that. Your cords of love will stay intact!
5. Protecting Your Energy
Envision a white light coming down from above and encompassing your entire body. I often imagine it being 3-4 feet thick. You can even go a little further and picture negativity, in whatever form, just bouncing off of your bright white bubble. Show gratitude for the protection that you have received.
Ask Archangel Michael to surround you with his purple light of protection. Envision it encompassing your entire body. As always, show gratitude :).
Envision pulling a cloak of protection around you and literally move your hands as if you were pulling it closed around you. This will ensure that you are protected.
I hope that these tips help you as you continue on your journey. I can assure you that they have saved me on more than one occasion! As always, I am available if you ever need a reading, healing session or past life regression. Readings and healing sessions can be done in person or long distance via Skype or telephone. In the meantime, I am asking the angels to shield you and fill you up as you continue to share your light with the world. May you be blessed with unlimited abundance in all its forms as you shine brightly for all to see. Shine on my friends. The world needs your light!
