Negative Energy Is Everywhere
Negative energy is all around us daily. Your energy field may even feel bombarded from time to time. Furthermore, everywhere we go we encounter individuals with their energy signal set to full broadcast. For those of us who are sensitive to others vibrations, this can be an energetic mind field. Thankfully there are many ways to help protect yourself from the negative energy you run into along the way.
Ground And Center Yourself
Grounding and centering is a technique where you use the energy of the earth to help you stabilize your energy field. This short visualization is a crucial tool to have in your energetic toolbox. First, still yourself. Take at least three deep breaths, and slowly exhale through each breath. Visualize yourself like a tree with your branches wide. Imagine your feet sprouting roots. The roots sink deep into the welcoming earth. All unwanted negative energy passes through you into the ground. Visualize yourself returning to your center, whole and cleansed.
Shielding From Negative Energy
Shielding is another excellent tool to help prevent negative energy from entering your personal space. There are many ways to shield yourself. All you need to do is determine what method works best for you. Some of us use a sacred amulet. An amulet can be an object you find extraordinary and have imbued with a certain amount of energetic property. Shields can also be religious medallions, found objects, gifts from significant people, or magickal sigils.
Stones That Protect Your Aura
Many varieties of crystal and gems emanate protective energy. My personal favorite is Black Tourmaline. For me, it stops negative energy in its tracks. Black Onyx is a great stone to fend off psychic attacks. While Jet is petrified wood, it has excellent grounding properties. Hematite is known to build a protective field around your body blocking negative energy quickly. Smokey Quartz removes negative energy from your aura and grounds it out right away. Find out which stone works best with your energy. Keep one tucked safely in a pocket when you feel the need for a protection boost, or place the stones in a grid where you work or at home.
The Sweet Smell of Protection
If you feel some negative energy in a room, a quick way to shift the feeling in the space is to burn sage, palo santo, or sweet grass. You may also use a wide variety of incense and resins for this same purpose. From myself, I like Dragons Blood. By releasing the energy of your favorite burnable, it moves through the air cleansing the residual funk you feel in the room.
Growing Your Personal Aura Field
The best way to protect yourself from negative energy is to grow your own aura stronger. There are several ways to do this. One is through personal study and practice. I suggest you find a good book, or two, on the topic or take a class. Many excellent practitioners offer help building up your skill set. Work to grow your belief in yourself. Nothing stands down negative energy like personal strength.
