As we begin to reawaken to the identity of who we truly are, some of you have mentioned that you are becoming sensitive to the energy around you. This may come in the form of being sensitive to places we may visit, or picking up emotions or thoughts from other people. This is all part of the process and not something that we should fear.
When you are ungrounded you may feel:
- Have difficulty holding conversations or engaging and listening to other people.
There are many techniques for cleansing, grounding and protecting yourself, but I thought I would share with you one that I have found to be very simple yet highly effective. This quick technique is especially good if you are going to be around large groups of people as it will help you feel more centred and balanced.
Firstly I like to imagine that I am standing under a waterfall of white light that is cleansing me from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. I imagine that it is washing my body of any impurities that are not my own.
Secondly, I like to imagine that I am opening trapdoors that are located under my feet, and envisage tree roots growing out from my feet and anchoring me into the earth. Other techniques that can help you feel more grounded include having a salt bath, going for a walk, doing some gardening, or taking your shoes off and walking barefoot outside. Anything to help you connect with nature!
Lastly, I image that I am standing in the middle of a golden bubble. This golden bubble protects you on all levels and acts like your personal bodyguard. Another method you can use for protection is to wear a crystal. Just put one in your pocket each morning and you will be protected throughout the day. A good crystal for protection and one I like to personally wear is Black Tourmaline. My kids have been wearing crystals for years and have greatly benefited from being protected. It is important that you cleanse your crystal and one simple and effective way to do this is to place it under running water.
Remember to check in with yourself throughout the day and ask if you are in your own integrity. If you get the feeling that you may have picked up the emotions or thoughts from another person then refer to this simple technique or have a look and find an alternative one that may resonate with you better.
This simple exercise can also be used for children as we often forget how highly sensitive children can be. I recently took my son to a public swimming pool as he was wanting to practice his swimming by doing some laps of the pool. After a couple of laps, he got out and said there was something wrong with the pool. He looked quite distressed and didn’t want to get back in. I realised that he was picking up the energy of all the other people who had swum in the pool and he was feeling completely overwhelmed and unbalanced. He is familiar with doing this technique and so we stood together and went through each step. Almost immediately he started to feel better and was then able to get back in the pool with no further complaints about feeling overwhelmed.
A fun activity is to get your kids to draw a picture of what this technique looks like as its often good for kids to have a visual image that they can relate to. My 9-year-old daughter drew the covering picture and I love how she has depicted herself standing under the waterfall of white light, with the tree roots growing out from her feet, encased in the golden bubble. This picture is placed just next to her bed and is a gentle reminder of what she can do to cleanse, ground and protect herself. Very empowering!
