Everyday, we bombard and are bombarded by negative energies with every negative thought we have and others have because thoughts are energy which is why it is so important for us to be mindful of our thoughts. It is equally important as witches, empaths, and healers to learn how to effectively protect ourselves from these negative energies be they unintentional or otherwise as they can cause mood swings, depression, illness, and misfortune; ripping holes in our auras and draining our energy.
To shield yourself, do the following: (Use sage, lavender, or pine to smudge yourself before hand if you are able).
- Sit somewhere quiet, preferably outside, and close your eyes, imagining that the light of the sun, moon, or stars is being drawn down to you, penetrating your being and spiraling downward inside of you and all around you, healing your body, your spirit, your mind, and your aura – and Imagine this light becoming roots that shoot from the bottoms of your feet and penetrate into the Earth and that any negativity is absorbed by the Earth where it can be neutralized.
- Once you have done this, imagine a crystal plate above your head, it continues to grow and flows down around you, encapsulating you in a crystal egg, or sphere. This crystal allows energy that serves your highest good to reach you because it is clear but it also transmutes negative energy into love, and sends it back to the sender.
- Take a deep breath and open your eyes.
- Thank the universe, your angels and spirit guides, or Great Spirit for their protection. As above, so below. So mote it be.
This should be done daily and especially before leaving the house. Make it a priority to do every morning especially if you are highly empathic and struggle with the energy of others.
Let me know what color your crystal is? Is it quartz, is it tinted? Is it citrine like the color of the Sun? Mine is clear quartz crystal.
