Sometimes, as empathic or energy sensitive people, we can all wish that we can just stay in our safe sacred space 24/7. But, unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen in our favor. Sometimes in life, we have to do and go places that we would like to avoid at all costs. Sometimes, that may happen every day or sometimes this is heightened during social, holiday gatherings, or public events. Being in this type of situation can cause a lot of anxiety. This is especially when we will be around people with whom is difficult to set healthy boundaries with. Inadvertently, the energy around you can physically affect your mind, body and soul vibrations.
About six years ago, I met a wise woman who had lived thousands of lifetimes. She knew she was living in her last incarnation. She could sense that I had all this stress around me particularly related to an environment I had to be in all the time. She told me that I needed to find a way to protect myself from all the negative energy while still allowing the positive energy to enter into my field. It took some time to really comprehend what she was saying to me. But, within a few months, I started incorporating this method into my daily practice. Before I even knew that I could hear spirit, I was using tools that they were giving me to help me get to a place where I could hear them. This technique allows you to create an energetic shield around you that will keep negative energy out, but allow loving positive energy to flow through freely. This will also help if you are empathic and tend to pick up other people’s negative energy. By doing this exercise, you will keep that negative energy out of your own energy field and space. This method is very similar to “shielding” but uses certain aura colors to spiritually allow you to fill yourself with the light you need for that particular day. When thinking about what colors you will want to use for your day, do a mental review of what you have going on that day or the areas with which you need some help. Let’s say that you have a meeting with your boss that day or know that you need to have an important conversation. You will want to incorporate the color blue for that day as blue is the color of communication. If you want to have some extra protection for your day, yellow is always a great choice as it is a color of Divine protection. Perhaps you have been struggling with a health issue. You will want to use green as it is the color of healing. If you are trying to increase your own intuition and abilities, purple is the color for you, and so forth based on your needs. You may find that you have one or two colors that you want to include daily. White and Pink are good everyday choices. White is a pure state of light and often considered the light of the Divine. Pink is the color of love, and love is in all things. It is something we could all use a little extra of every day no matter how much we may have in our lives. There is no right or wrong way. So, trust your instincts to guide you for each day. When I have a hard time deciding on certain colors for the day, I like to also use Rainbow energy for the color. For some reason, I feel that way I have everything covered. Color is the most vibrant, versatile and fun way we can work with energy, so do just that, have fun. If you have particularly long days, you can always rejuvenate your energetic circle by simply thinking about the colors around you or mentally going through the exercise again. This will ensure that you will stay within a positive energy force all day for your highest good.
- While still sitting in the lotus or cross-legged position, bring your hand’s palm to palm to your heart chakra.
- Take a deep breath.
- Decide what color with which you are going to fill yourself.
- Bring your arms straight above your head while still keeping your hand’s palm to palm.
- Imagine the color of your choice energetically dispensing from your hands. Once you have that image in your mind’s eye, turn the palm of your hands outward.
- While still visualizing the color dispensing from your palms, move your hands down towards the floor. Then, bring the light around your back, up over your head, down your face, core and around your legs and back up to your head. This makes a complete energetic colored circle.
- With your hands still at your head from the last circle point, you will want to create a seal. The seal will help keep the color strong all day and keep anything out that will not suit your highest good. To create a seal, simply take your dominant hand and rotate your hand clockwise three times at the last circle point.
- If you are working with multiple colors, you will then want to repeat steps four through seven for each color with which you want to fill yourself.
- When you are done with your final fill and seal, you will want to express your gratitude to the Universe with a thank you, or Namaste for helping you with your day.
If visualization isn’t your thing, no worries. Here are some other ways that you can keep your energy field protected throughout your every day.
Stones & Crystals:
Although there are lots of stones and crystals that provide protection elements. Here are our top 5 selections for you that we believe provide great protection for your energy.
- Black Tourmaline
- Smoky Quartz
Working with a stone and crystal for energy protection is a fairly easy procedure. All you have to do is wear it, hold it, or have it in your space. There are also lots of jewelry options available for these stones and crystals such as bracelets, necklaces and worry palm stones. When using a stone in this way, it is important to keep the energy clear in it. There are many ways you can do this but, three of the simplest ways are to run the stone or crystal under cold water (DO NOT do this with selenite, as it dissolves in water.), leave it out under the Full Moon overnight, or lastly, you can leave it in a bowl of salt overnight. This will ensure that the stone or crystal works effectively for providing protection for you.

Protecting our energy can feel like it is complex at times, and there are so many variations on, how someone can go about it. There is another technique that works really well. However, getting it right is the most difficult part. Learning to not let others affect your energy. This happens a lot with those people with whom it is harder to set boundaries; for instance co-workers, friends, and family. We all have that person the thought of whom gets your energy in a tizzy. The best and most efficient way to deal with that truly comes to the realization that we are all doing the best we can in this life and their reality may not be your reality. It is not always your responsibility to convince them otherwise. All you have to do is remain kind with your words and actions not only to them but yourself as well. Surrounding yourself in love for yourself and being confident in you is just like wrapping yourself in a sparkly white blanket. Always remember that no one can affect your energy unless you allow them to. You got this!
