As we know and as many scientists have proven; we are energy, in-fact everything in our entire Universe is energy. b . Thus, if we and everything around us are energy, and we know that the only constant is change itself; we can understand that we are constantly giving and receiving energy, exchanging energy with all our interactions, experiences, and happenstances of our lives.
. This means, that we are bound to store these experiences and exchanges as energy inside ourselves, that we will undoubtable take on others energy around us, that it is extremely fundamental and important to know how to protect your energy, release it, recharge it and boost it.
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. . Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” – Albert Einstein
Why is it essential to protect your energy?
Think of it as a well; if you are continuously giving the water from the well without refilling it up, then the well will eventually be full drained. This is what happens with our energy, when we give it away all the time without honoring and protecting it and nurturing it, we will end up feeling drained, tired, used, unbalanced, and even at times like a ‘sponge’ for everyone else’s experiences and feelings.
How can we care for our energy? We can do this by keeping energetic maintenance and energy hygiene.
Below you can find five simple ways to start curating and building your personal tools to protect, cleanse, restore your energy!
Light is one of the simplest and quickest ways to protect, restore and cleanse our energy. All you must do is close your eyes, connect with your breath, and begin to visualize a bright white light surrounding you, emanating all-around your being, allow this light to grow and expand arm’s length away in all directions (the circumference of your Auru). b In your Third Eye Chakra (Anja) and Heart Chakra (Anahata) repeat “White Light Now”; say it internally with a strong and loving tone (repeat at least 3x). Continue this sequence for a few moments or for as long as you need. If you are in a jiffy, or you feel some ‘energy vampires’ or you are in an unsafe place: keep your eyes open and simply repeat inside yourself “bright white light now” the light will begin to shield and protect you.
The word Mantra is Sanskirt, meaning “manas (mind) and tra (tool). ). Mantra literally means “a tool for the mind,” and was designed to help practitioners access a higher power and their true natures.” Essentially it is a motivating chant that can be vocalized internally (in your mind), externally (with your voice) or written down. By using Mantra such as ‘I clear, balance and protect my energy’ these won’t just be words, they will be intentions (instructions for your), thoughts, actions for every aspect of your mind, body, and spirit.
When one thinks of boundaries, they might go to the extreme and think walls; this is not it. Boundaries are invisible lines that we place around us that ebb and flow, that are malleable but in a way concrete. They are the lines that honor and protect us and allow ourselves not to be taken advantage of, disrespected, manipulated, or abused. Clear, strong, loving boundaries are what one wants to have and create for themselves. With these in-place you can build healthy relationships with others, yourself and all your experiences. Honoring boundaries, means sitting down and thinking about what you will and won’t accept in your life, getting clear on this and taking the time to write it down. Then begin to implement it into your daily life.
Crystals have a base of Quartz which is comprised of silicon and oxygen (SiO2); we have these two elements within our physical form; Quartz can vibrate at precise and specific frequencies due to its harmonious interior structure. Allowing it the ability to transmit and transform electromagnetic waves (energy in the air that is all-around us, but we cannot see with our bare eyes); a tiny piece of Quartz, called a crystal oscillator is used in all aspects of technology. Meaning we can also use Quartz crystal to clear, transform, transmit our own energy. Carry a crystal with you in your pocket, bra, purse, bag, wallet, carry it on your person and allow it to do its work. You can even deepen its connection with you and its purpose by giving it and setting it with and intention/mantra.
Take Salt Baths:
Utilizing water and salt are ancient fundamental techniques that mankind has been using for a plethora of things. It can be as easy as filling a tub, or a large enough pot for your feet with a feel-good temperature and some at-hand salt. Then simply get in the tub or place your feet in the pot and begin to just surrender to the moment and the sensation of the water gathering around your body. Relax into it, allow yourself these moments to slow down and just rest. Let the water and salt cleanse and soothe you. Stay in this state, for 15minutes or longer. If you are used to this ‘stripped-back’ ritual; feel free to intergrate crystals, sage, palo santo, mantras, or other bath ingredients.
