Oddly enough, or maybe not so…my journey into the occult began with my need to protect my energy base and sense of well being. As an empath (which I didn’t know the term for) I would constantly feel drained or reinvigorated depending on who I was around. My mood swings were erratic at times and not even I could predict myself. My entire being hinged on my surroundings and I felt a constant dis-ease.
It wasn’t until I met an “energy vampire” I had to seriously look into how to protect myself. It was also the pressing spiritual realm into my life. The whole cliche “I see dead people” is not cool as a working professional. Yet, I didn’t know how to control the flow or, at times barrage of information. I am not even going to say now I am a master of that. But my partner would comment on how I would look completely drained after being with this specific person. I would sleep for 10 or more hours to try and “rest up”. So I started looking into regaining my energy and discovered a whole new world.
I will fast forward through this part and assume you are on this path of spiritual discovery. Here is what you need to do.
First. EVERYDAY for 5-15 minutes, hell even 2 is better than nothing! Spend building up your white light of protection. To me, the white light is God enveloping me, you can equate it to the Christian idea of “putting on the armor of God” or just imagine it as the universe. Whatever floats your boat. The point is, you spend some time with your eyes closed in solitude imagining a beautiful white light raining down upon you. If you don’t have privacy, do it in the shower.There are some great guided meditations to help you through this. Just go to iTunes and search white light meditation.
Second. You MUST ground and center. Connecting yourself to the spiritual earth will help you not feel at the mercy of the emotions of those around you. Ariel with the DCW has an amazing podcast you can find on iTunes as well. Episode 2A is on grounding and centering.
Third. Work on pulling up your mental shield. I can’t give much direction on this as I am still in practice myself, but I imagine an impenetrable wall to my mind and spirit (constantly reinforced with my grounding and centering) I know there is a way to only let what you want in, but I am still perfecting that. 🙂
I will certainly keep you posted! Please feel free to leave any comments to build on these basic principles. I appreciate the conversation!
