What’s that all about?
Many Healers, Intuitives, Light-workers and people who have read any self-help book or watched Oprah (that’s pretty much every body right?!) often talk about the need to “protect” themselves or others.
Some protect against picking up negative energy or other people’s pain and dis-ease. Others protect themselves against the devil, negative spirits, psychic attacks. The list goes on. There are a multitude of techniques, teachings and tools to “protect” one’s self and many of them work very well. Surrounding yourself with Light, drawing a protective circle, using affirmations/setting intention, carrying certain crystals, etc. are just a few.
Heaven knows, I love playing with all of the above.
And I’m certainly not saying that allowing any of those “sticky things” to become a part of your energetic field or to affect you in any way is the thing to do…far from it. I’m also not saying it’s “wrong,” “bad,” “stupid,” “worthless,” etc. to use those tools and techniques. Nope. First of all, I’d never use those words (ha!) but I’m actually just suggesting that there may be another way, an even more amazingly effective, easy and quite beautiful way to keep our Spirit bright and clear!
Why do we ever feel a need to protect? It is always because there is something that we fear. Protection must always be “against something.” Now as many of you may have heard…what you focus on is what you attract.
Hmmmmmmmm… Got you thinking yet?
So. Even though some protection techniques are quite good and definitely make a difference in how you feel after doing energywork on someone or coming out of a room full of angry people, when you are protecting anyone or anything, you are still giving energy to fear. And that’s never the best idea.
FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real.
I love that!
And here’s the thing…it’s true.
“The only thing to fear is fear itself.” Yep.
“Danger is real. Fear is a choice.” Uh-huh.
(* that’s from Will Smith in some post-apocalyptic movie.)
Fascinating how God/Goddess gives us the message in so many ways that we just can’t miss it. Except when we do. Most of us have been taught and believed through the ages that to protect ourselves was necessary in order to stay safe. And so it’s been true. For our ancestors, for us in past lives, for our future…unless…There is an even better way!
What if instead of fearing that we as energetic beings had weaknesses in our make-up, the ability to be “penetrated,” to have our energy fields shifted into a more negative state by being in the presence of negative energy or intention…what if we were so clear and strong in the knowing that we are absolutely perfect beings of Light, beautiful sparks of Divinity, unassailable by anything at all, that there was no space (or reason) for that fear to exist? We would be safe. We are.
Yes, there may be additional belief work and vibrational patterns that need to be transformed to fully claim this Truth, but I promise you that this amazing meditation/visualization will change your life…(even if you still want to use protection techniques, which of course would be just fine, because you are the divine creator of your life and choices!)
Living in the Light Meditation/Visualization
Find a comfortable position. Take a few nice, deep breaths and let go of any tension, worry or stress in your mind, body or spirit. Now gently take your attention to your heart space and imagine a tiny yet brilliant ball of sparkling white Light swirling in place. Give yourself a moment to relax, breathe and just be with it.
You know without a doubt that this is your true nature. This is who you really are. This radiant Light is the Divinity within you. Source. Spirit. All That Is. It is not separate from you. It is never separate from you. It IS you.
Allow this knowing to become clearer and stronger…simply be in that space with God/Goddess/All That Is for a few moments and allow yourself to remember and reconnect. Notice as this brilliant Light begins to expand…to grow. Allow it to become bigger and bigger, stronger and stronger, more and more powerful. Notice it swirling and dancing throughout your body ~ allow this glorious, shining white Light to fill every single cell of your being with Peace, Love and Healing. You know without a doubt that you are safe. Nothing can harm you here. Nothing can touch you when you are One with Spirit.
Now see the dazzling molecules of Light begin to stream from you…from your chakras and your very pores. From your crown, your fingers and toes. Allow it now to fill your field with beauty, strength and Spirit. Stronger and stronger. More and more beautiful. Illuminating absolutely everything!! This incredible, dancing Light that is you continues to expand, out into the world…out into the universe…and beyond. You have become the Light.
