At any given time we are in contact, within the bounds of negativity and density. One hears much about protection and many ways in which to do so. Crystals, visualisation, various rituals. You can use any or all of them, none is better than the other, it really is down to what works for you personally. If you’re not a visual person, then you may not feel protected by a visualisation, but it works regardless of whether you can see it, the intention is the main thing.
The word protection may bring out fears about being attacked by others, other energy but there is no need to fear. Fear is an ego-based thing, fear can control you in many ways, allowing fears to become out of control. It’s best not to let it. Give yourself reassurance by protecting yourself.
It is worth trying out various ways of protection, but with protection also comes the need for cleansing and grounding, equally important. Think. How do you feel after a day at work, a day at the city. Yes, you may feel grubby, but do you often find your mood low, a feeling of heaviness about you. Mixed emotions that seem to come up out of nowhere. This is because of what is picked up during the day, particularly so if you are an empath, and take on other people emotions and feelings and the atsmosphere of places.
So, start each day by surrounding yourself with protection. Many choose to envisage and/or call in white light protection, or a shield violet light and of course, one can also call upon Archangel Michael for protection. Besides these methods you can of course carry crystals, to absorb negativity and protect you and also to keep you grounded. Crystals are very effective but remember to cleanse them regularly too, so they work the best they can.
Good crystals to use are black tourmaline, black obsidian and amethyst too has it’s protective qualities. For grounding haemetite is recommended or the red/brown stones, such as red jasper. Carry a little pouch of tumbled stones or wear as a piece of jewellery, the choice is yours.
Cleansing was mentioned earlier on and this can be as simple as a shower, envisaging the water washing away negativity into your plughole and into the earth, or you can be more elaborate. Some swear by a bath containing epsom salts. A lovely way to cleanse is a bath with some beautiful essential oils added. Add some flowers for a visual as well as a sensual experience. Another way of cleansing is by smudging yourself with sage, letting the smoke from the sage cleanse you, and your home if you feel it needs it. Again, try different ways to suit you and you can ask the Angels to cleanse and uplift you too.
None of this takes too long out of your day. Make it part of your daily preparations and last thing at night or when you return home after a long day. A lovely thing to do for you. Self care and self love.
