Why protect our energy?
The perfect example just this second walked into the coffee shop where I write to help me demonstrate this! No kidding. Have you ever been near a stranger and just sensed that something was "off" about their energy? It can feel very distracting and creepy. For me, it gives me chills and makes me want to leave, and I can't even put a finger on why exactly I feel this way. This same person comes in here almost every time I'm here, and though he's never said a word to me, his energy just bugs.
One time while I was here writing, I felt an icy blast of cold creep all the way across my back, and when I turned around, he was standing about three feet behind me, facing my back but with a newspaper held up in front of his face. I stopped what I was doing, closed my eyes, focused on my protection bubble, (which I'll teach you in a minute) and also imagined a giant shield around me. Immediately afterward, (I mean not even 5 seconds!) creepy guy put down his paper and walked away, out of my field of vision. Mission accomplished!
Everyone is made up of energy and carries around additional energy that they pick up along the way. It feels great to be around some people's energy and it feels icky to be around others'. This ickiness can stick to us and dampen our own energy. And let's face it, as mothers we need all the energy we can get. We certainly don't want random people throwing dark clouds over us for no good reason.
The more we meditate and tune into subtle energy, the more sensitive we'll become to other people's energy.
Therefore … the Protection Bubble.Here's how you do it:
- Imagine yourself completely enclosed in an egg-shaped bubble. You can see out perfectly, but icky energy can't get in.
- Fill the bubble with white light, like puffy, white clouds. This is loving, protective energy.
- Now imagine covering the outside of your bubble with mirrors, facing out. This reflects any negative energy back at the sender, keeping it off of you. They usually don't like what they see reflected back and will retreat, like creepy coffee shop guy did.
