Why is it important to cleanse, protect and ground our energy everyday?
We encounter so much energy throughout our day, especially for an empath, it is important to clear away any energies that do not belong to you.
Do you ever feel like you don't even know how you feel? Or you don't know why you are feeling the way you do? It's probably because they are not even your feelings.
I remember when I first began tapping into my empathic abilities after I had my son, as well as giving up dairy. I feel like going through this transformation without this negative blocker such as dairy (another blog on that soon) I was able to turn this ability on. Although I didn't actually know it. All of a sudden I felt like I was going crazy! I was having all of these emotions and I couldn't explain why I felt the way I did. I remember one incident in particular I was having dinner with my now ex's family. And out of now where I just felt all of this rage! I had to run out of the house and go home before I went mental! I definitely looked like a crazy person. At this time I was getting some holistic counselling, and I spoke to her about these incidents. She told me she believed I was an empath which made so much sense to me! I had heard about empaths but never fully related until this time in my life.
I then started learning about what to do with these new found abilities, so I went and seen a psychic at a local expo. She had a Tibetan singing bowl and tried clearing the energy before she did my reading. She was having a hard time doing this and told me that I had brought everyone else's energy from the expo in with me. No wonder I felt crazy! Imagine carrying about a hundred people's energy around with you all day. In this reading she told me how important it was to clear and protect my energy. She also was the first to tell me I had fairy blood and also spoke about grounding now that I am an earthling in this life.
So cleanse yo self.
Ways that you can do this are; meditation. I share different guided meditations on my Facebook page so be sure to follow me!
Balance your chakras
Aura spray made with essential oils such as; lemongrass, purify, frankincense, rosemary, witch hazel, lavender, or sage.
Moon bathing under the full moon with your crystals
Get amongst the wind! The wind is incredibly cleansing. I used to find windy days really annoying. But now I know on these days I need to just stand in the wind and let all of my annoyances go.
Burn sage and cleanse your energy with the smoke.
Have a shower and envision the water washing away any negative energies that do not serve you.
Now that you are cleansed, you need to learn to protect your energy so that no one can mess with your beautiful energetic field.
When you wake up in the morning imagine a bubble around your aura. You can imagine whatever colour you are drawn to, generally I am drawn to pink which only allows love to penetrate my bubble.
Crystals are the best for protecting your energy. My number one go to is amethyst for empaths. I like wearing my crystals as a necklace or earrings. If you don't vibe with amethyst, then clear quartz, or onyx is great!
Next step is to ground your energy.
As a incarnated fairy I have always found this hardest step.
There are lots of grounding meditations out there on Spotify or Youtube. Ideally you want to meditate twice a day. At the start of the day you ground yourself and at the end of the day to clear your energy.
The Earth is the best way to ground yourself. Every day taking time to stand on the grass or the dirt and envision tree roots coming out from your root chakra through to your feet and into the earth, grounding your energy with the earths energy. Being grounded enables us to function more effectively as humans, especially living in the matrix or in the 3D. As an incarnated fairy I am very connected to the air energy. I am creative and am often described at very free-flowing. I am always just flying around in life and seeing where the wind will take me. As a creative, living in this energy works great. But to run a business as an example, I've needed to work our how to ground my ideas to bring them into reality.
Some days it is harder than others but ways to get yourself grounded are, spending time in nature, ideally barefoot. Having a bath with Epsom salts and really relaxing yourself. Using grounding earthy oils such as vetiver or cedarwood on the bottoms of your feet. Taking time out to rest is very important, feeling into that kapha energy and reflecting rather than creating. Also eating root vegetables helps (yes potato *drools*).
Doing these three things will enable flow into this life time for you. Grounding, protecting and cleansing your energy is imperative to your mental and spiritual wellness as an empath or lightworker. Soon you won't know how you functioned without doing this!
