Protect Your Energy - Balance Your Life
Written by Karina Barca, Fierce Truths Magazine.
We are currently living in a world where our physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental health and overall wellbeing are being affected and challenged dramatically. During this time, our foundations are being rocked on many different levels. We are all being triggered in different ways due to our belief systems, trauma, the environmental factors that we grew up with, and the ones we currently have in our lives.
There is a deep need to feel safe physically, mentally, and spiritually. And it’s especially important during these unpredictable and unprecedented times, where fear and uncertainty are at the forefront of the collective on a global scale. So what can we do to help ourselves?
Protecting your aura/energy and instilling firm boundaries is the key. Just as we protect our physical bodies, we also have to protect and take care our energetic bodies. Your aura is your energetic field, which surrounds all of you. When you keep it clear, it helps protect your energy and also raises your vibration and/or frequency.
Here are some techniques that can help to clear your energy
Going for a swim or having a bath with epsom salts or sea salt.
Cleansing yourself and your home with white sage, palo santo, cedar or any other plant/herb that resonates with you. When sageing your home, pay close attention to the corners and behind doors where stagnant energy builds. Due to the smoke released during this process, you may want to remove the batteries from your smoke alarms. Once finished, you may want to leave your home for about an hour. Open the windows upon your return to allow fresh air and new energy into your home. Don’t forget to replace the batteries in your smoke alarms too!
Meditation. This releases stresses and doesn’t allow them to continue building up in your nervous system. If your mind is not quiet, that is perfectly fine. Just allow the thoughts to come and go. When it comes to meditation, a shallow dive is always better than no dive at all.
Wearing protective crystals that are grounding and protect against negativity. My favourites are hematite, black tourmaline, and pyrite. You can also place them around your home, or do a crystal grid with a specific intention. But be mindful of crystals placed on your bedside table. Grounding crystals are best suited for this.
