Many of you have asked how to shield your energy from people in your life who may be draining your energy or sending negative vibrations your way, consciously or subconsciously. It’s so important for energy workers to know how to protect your energy field; penetration of your field can result in decreased physical energy and even illness in extreme cases.
The technique I use most often is the Bubble of Light. It’s a common technique, and you may have heard of it before, but in case you haven’t – it can change your practice! You can ‘bubble up’ every day or just when you feel it’s needed (i.e., before you go into an energetically charged environment). I also like to provide the caveat that sometimes you will want to un-bubble yourself in order to open your energy more widely, especially when you are in environments of trust and love. Overshielding can result in feelings of isolation and loneliness, which can be just as difficult as feeling drained and overwhelmed.
To begin, imagine a white egg-shaped orb of white light floating toward you – 7 feet tall and 4 feet wide. When it’s close enough to touch, step toward it and then, step inside of it. Feel the orb accept your entire body within its form. Inside, the white light feels warm and soft, loving and healing. The layer of light between you and the world outside of the bubble you’re in is your buffer; nothing can touch you or reach you here unless the light outside is of equal vibration and intention. Pure love can reach you, as can pure healing and pure consciousness; lower vibrations remain outside.
If you’ve felt attacked or harassed you can add an extra layer of protection to this visualization; imagine placing a thousand small mirrors (I imagine each being a small 3×3” square) over the entire surface of your bubble of light. These mirrors reflect any energy coming toward you and bounce it back to its original source, in its original form. If someone is sending you love, their love will be returned to them; if someone has sent you harmful energy, that energy will also be returned to them. This can be an intense experience for the recipient depending on what they sent in your direction; the nature of what is returned is decided by them and their intention alone.
Bubbling yourself up is a quick and easy technique with very few possible consequences for you or others; you can imagine yourself inside the sphere quickly once you practice and you can step out of the bubble when you like. You can add the mirrors and then remove them, also at will. I hope that the your bubble of light becomes a safe haven and quiet respite for you. May your energy be protected and whole, always. And so it is.
