Energy shielding is a metaphysical technique used to support highly sensitive people who can easily absorb the energies around them unknowingly or can have trouble distinguishing between their own thoughts and feelings and people around them.
Now, don’t misunderstand, in spiritual truth we are all one extension of Love that expresses itself in a myriad of different ways. We are the same essence of Light & Love that emanates from One source. Whether you call that source, “Love,” “God,” “The Universe” it is all the same source of Love. While we are here in Three dimensional form experiencing life in the body, we get to experience free will and what its like to be the creators of our reality.
We are made up of vibrational energy, and based on the beliefs we hold in our mind, and the experiences we create. While the mind still holds beliefs in separation, we can believe we are not always a vibrational match to the choices that “seem” to come from other bodies around us. We are one with everything, which means we match everything in our experience unconsciously. Energy shielding can help us remain balanced and entered in Love rather than in reaction mode to what might seem to be coming from outside of you. Ultimately, there are no separate bodies. There is only One genuine reflection at all times, If something happens and we have a reaction, this is always a sign to be willing to look within and pose the questions “where am I refusing to Love? Where am I unknowingly refusing to let Love in?
You might be thinking, “What? how can I have called forth the person who cut me off in traffic, or the negative person at the store?”
Rest assured, I’m not saying we consciously do this. What I am saying is that the energetic frequency of that experience of being cut off in traffic, has to be present somewhere in our experience – it could be in another area of life altogether. But, we can’t call forth experiences without matching that frequency somewhere first. It is always a call to look within. A gentle nudge letting us know, there’s something out of alignment here. It is nothing that should ever bring on guilt, or shame. Simply a message that balance has shifted.
Energy shielding is a powerful tool to add to our Spiritual tool belt. (provided there is willingness to accept the ideas in our mind.) Especially, because energy shielding can help to zero in on our current vibrational frequency and that of others experiencing form. Energy shielding is a lot like wearing a pair of sunglasses or a winter coat. It is a tool we can use to strengthen our decision to align with happiness and joy.
Energy Shielding is spiritually neutral, just the way Spirit is. Shielding is not good or bad. When you use a shielding technique, you are not implying that other energies are bad, You are simply making a decision to keep your energy vibrating as high, pure and clean as possible. Just as taking a shower or a bath has benefits, so to does energy shielding. These techniques assist sensitive people to stay living in Love without taking responsibly for the free will choices of others.
Archangel Michael is known as a strong shielding energy. Michael shields anyone and everyone who requests being supported in this way. You can say something as simple as:
“Archangel Michael I invite you to surround me with your vibrant strong and protective energy now. I know that I am safe no matter what appears to be gong on.”
I begin by holding the intention either as a thought, a feeling or a vision in my mind. I see myself immersed in soft loving pink light all around me. I ask that the allowed to penetrate my entire being. I follow the pink light with Golden light which is very peaceful and gentle. Finally, I follow with royal purple light as somewhat of a loving energetic sealer. The process doesn’t have to take very long, but it is very helpful in setting the intention for self-care.
Crystals are also energetic shields Crystals are metaphysical energies that strengthen our aura’s and energetic fields. Black Tourmaline and almost any other black crystal shields from harsh negative energy. Rose Quartz is the stone connected to Love & Romance and its energy transmutes lower vibrating fearful energy into higher vibrating Loving energy. Burning sage is another powerful way to release and transmute negative energy as well as lighting candles with the intention of letting go of what doesn’t serve. These shifts are amazing when we allow them. Feel free to share your experiences in the comments below!
The metaphysical Spiritual Text “A Course in Miracles” The course teaches that all fear and suffering comes from investing in a learned identify, a false self that is invested in separation and pain. The truth of what we are actually has no identity with the physical body.
What we are is Love in its purest form. When we aren’t in alignment with that, we experience guilt (whether conscious or unconscious), pain and suffering. Everything we experience can be witnessed through fear which is never the truth, or Love which is always the truth. Everything in our life can be used to strengthen, our awareness of love. Our experiences can also be used to strengthen our investment in the false sense of self. My recent trip to the vet with my dog was a beautiful example of the contrast of the false identity and the stillness, the knowing that comes when we choose to rest in Love.
I have a beautiful dog, She is an absolute blessing in my daily life. She is a wonderful reminded of the present moment and the choice we all have control over. The choice to be happy no matter what appears to be going on. While it is true she doesn’t enjoy bath time, she doesn’t spend any time dwelling on past bathing mishaps, or anticipating future ones. Yes, she doesn’t like having baths (and she has a way of letting me know she disapproves), but when the time comes she accepts it for what it is, .Emily is a teacup Yorkie, full of joy and love. Every year I put money aside to have her teeth cleaned.
My vet has been telling me for the past several years that Yorkshire Terriers as a breed are known to have “bad teeth.” I’ve explored many alternatives over the years as options to care for her teeth. Before I had begun my journey working with angels and studying A Course In Miracles, Emily’s vet visits were a source of massive anxiety for me. Each time she went for her annual cleaning I would worry about the possibility of my sweet dog potentially losing teeth.
In September, Emily turned the earthy age of 8 (though her spirit is always youthful. On March 13th, she had her annual teeth cleaning. I asked the Angels to be with Emily throughout the checkup and cleaning, and I asked for the highest good to be done. I released everything to the care of God & I went about my day more relaxed then any previous appointments. Several hours later I received a call from the vet saying that Emily’s 6 tiny front teeth were diseased, and needed to be removed.
In my mind I immediately went to guilt. “What could I have done to prevent this?” “What could I have done to take better care of Emily?” “What could I have done to make it so she wasn’t facing this situation in the first place?” I even felt myself feeling defensive at some of the vet’s questions.
I’ll be honest, I felt very uncomfortable, and I was very aware of my discomfort since my spiritual practice has granted me so much peace, and a willingness to go with the flow of life in the awareness that my true identity is not what I see “out there” in terms of a body that experiences problems and conflict.
I wasn’t feeling peaceful when the vet called me though. I stayed feeling discomfort for several hours which felt very unusual. I am now much more comfortable aligned with Love, so anything that isn’t peace actually feels intolerable. During the vet experience I felt really guilty. A Course In Miracles teaches that “Guilt is always insane.” So, I chose to take that insanity and look at it with Spirit.
I know from working the principals of A Course In Miracles that discomfort only comes up to be observed with love. Observing something un-judgementally allows it be released and exchanged for true perception.
I wasn’t seeing myself with true perception while I was stuck in the guilt and the Self-blame. All I was seeing was the effects of my judgement. Once I was ready to look at my guilt and feel it n all of its ickiness I became open enough to embrace a miracle and be willing to accept a shift in perception.
I talked with Spirit and the Angels about everything I was feeling, my extreme discomfort, my bewilderment that this whole experience was bothering me so much.
I even looked at my frustration with myself for feeling so frustrated (LOL).
It was then that I received the intuitive message that Emily losing these teeth was an agreement that had already been made on a Soul level, there was never anything I could do to change anything that occurred, and by being willing to authentically look at what was coming forward, I was able to transform the entire experience from one full of fear, to one exploding with Love.
Once I was able to let go of the guilt, I was able to see and recognize so many other miracles that had occurred around the entire situation. I had been asking Spirit to look after everything for me, and Spirit had done just that, Emily was given tremendous loving care. Her vet bill invoice was printed at 1:11 which in Angel Numerology means “Your thoughts are manifesting, stay positive!”
Miraculously, the vet was inspired to remove several charges from the bill for Emily’s care as a gift. There is no doubt in my mind that God and the Angels were behind the gift of financial savings.
Emily is doing wonderfully, there was no ideal as far as she is concerned, to her, she hadn’t lot anything, and she has no attachment to those teeth whatsoever!
Emily taught me so much about an attachment I was hanging on to, and still placing belief into. I call her my “Little Angel Dog” and she truly is. She helped me look at areas where I wasn’t choosing for complete innocence. What a gift!
I’d love to hear from you, if this blog resonates with you. Feel free to share your personal experiences in the comments below!
I’ll be frank as I have been in all of my bog posts. Self love has been a core issue in my life. It is still something I work on even as I write this. For a long time, I didn’t posses much self love at all, because truthfully I was in a place emotionally I didn’t feel I deserved it. This has been one of my biggest ego hooks. Now that I have been set on the path of my life purpose working with the angels and guides to uplift and inspire others and assist in the process of removing the blocks to the love that exists within people; I know that I was meant to have the experiences I created in my life, so that I can relate to others who may be experiencing the same.
Letting go, being gentle with myself and being silly haven’t really been easy for me, not since childhood, but my angels and guides continue to help me understand that fun and play are not just something to do for the simple pleasure of it, but that acts of self-love, pleasure and fun are vital to leading a balanced and joyous life. I have found a common theme amongst clients that I work with; people carry a significant amount of guilt over allowing ourselves to let loose, have fun, be silly relax ect. We condition our minds often unconsciously to believe that life is hard, we must work all hours to be successful.
We convince ourselves that there isn’t enough time in the day to get important tasks done. We believe we must work hard to “get some result “out there” that we think will make us happy,
We set high standards for ourselves and then when we don’t feel we meet out goal, we sit in judgement, we blame ourselves and we create a type of hamster effect where we’re always in search of the elusive next result, and we certainly forget to love ourselves in the process.
I’ve made a pact with myself to be silly at least once a day, I also set aside time everyday to honour myself – no matter how busy I am or what my deadlines are. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t easy especially on the nights that I feel I should keep working. It takes effort, but I’ve spent years doing the opposite. I already know that doesn’t work! The more I can show myself forgiveness and compassion, the happier I feel. And if I treat myself with respect, I will attract people who will treat me the same way.
If you are anything like me ad you spent spent a good portion of your life feeling like you are s spiritual person, knowing you believe in the concept of God, source energy, the creator, higher self and spirit, regardless of your religious beliefs; then maybe you are also like me and you spent a good portion of your life being weird ed out by the idea of meditation.
Hey its ok if you find meditation to be uncomfortable and strange. That's the motivation behind this blog post.
I hope that by sharing my own experience and growth with meditation, I can help soothe and simplify the process with you.
Meditation is gentle and all too often, whether we are new at it or whether we feel seasoned in our practice we all tend to judge our meditation ability. There is no right or wrong way to meditate. We are all unique people which is a beautiful thing to be embraced and celebrated. Meditation is about quieting the mind. It is about relaxation, peace and communication with divine energy.
Our human tenancy is such that we have ideas about what we think mediation should be and if we hold those images up to our experience of meditation, we start to create the belief that we are doing it wrong. I will use some of my own experiences with meditation as examples:
When I began my meditation practice I placed a lot of expectation on myself to find stillness quickly, I have perfectionist tendencies and so, sitting in the energy of expecting perfection blocked my progress.
I got irritated with myself if I couldn't block out background noises or the sound of m own thoughts. I was frustrated if a guided meditation called for me to visualize, and I couldn't seem to bring the image to my mind.
The pressure I was putting on myself to be an expert at meditation was preventing me from creating the peace and communication with spirit that I was seeking, want to be clear though, that meditation is a journey not a destination. Some days you will feel a stronger connection than others.
There may or may not be days when you feel a wonderful profound connection to spirit, and there may be days when things just don't gel, and you feel frustrated and uncomfortable. That's completely natural. As humans we tend to be very hard on ourselves, at least I know I am. But as I progress with my daily meditation I've learned to relax more with it and accept that there is no set of rules for the way meditation is "supposed to be" I have found the key is in gentle acceptance of what the meditation experience is for you.
Here are some brief suggestions that you may want to use to simplify your meditation process:
1) Focus on your breathing
Allow yourself the time and the comfort to feel your inhalation and exhalation breath. You may want to close your eyes depending on what is comfortable for you. Sometimes our human nature may get caught up in our "meditation tools" such as music, length of time, or how we position ourselves during meditation, I have found simplifying to breath to be really important, When I forget to breathe, my body automatically tenses. I have also helps when I remember to allow my exhalation breath to be twice as long as my inhale, my relation deepens and my connection to the divine energy deepens too.If you find it hard to focus on your breath, you might want to try taking your pulse and connecting first to the beat of your heart. Next you can practice your meditation breathing though a straw – with your exhalation breath being twice as long as your inhale,
2) Try a mixture of techniques and meditation music styles.
Pay close attention to how you feel while trying each type. Notice the feelings in your body, choose what makes you feel most at ease. Don't be afraid to change styles, techniques, teachers or background sound as time goes on. Change is a natural part of the process as well, and stagnate energy is sometimes created when we established predictable routines,
3) Practice self love and acceptance of where you are at.
Allow your mediation to be perfect as it in each moment. The more you can embrace the feelings, thoughts and distractions that occur and simply allow them to be present without resistance, the more gentle, relaxing and peaceful your practice will become with time.
Spirit Junkie was the first book I read when spirit guided me to the astounding coaching work of Gabrielle Bernstein. You can read more about my blessed journey to my intuitive coaching work with angels by reading my blog most My Journey To Angels. Gabby became a mentor of mine and her book “Spirit Junkie” quite literally transformed me.
When I read the book, I could relate so much to her story. Although the details of our lives were very different, we had both overcome adversity in our lives to be guided toward inquisitive coaching work, Gabby’s teachings are inspired by a metaphysical spiritual text called A course In Miracles. Spirit Junkie is her personal autobiography detailing her journey as both a teacher and a student of the course.
One of Gabby’s many gifts lies in her ability to take the often heady text of A Course In Miracles and demystify it’s core concepts making them more accessible to a younger generation (The very reason I was guided to her work and resonated so deeply with how she communicated course principles). Spirit Junkie was my first exposure to A Course In Miracles and it was enough for me to know from a profound place inside that the course was an integral part of my path.
I too consider myself both a student and a teacher of A course In Miracles. Let me delve briefly in to some fundamental A Course In Miracles concepts At the core of the course is the key concept of the split mind. We all have an ego. The part of our mind that is the fear voice. The part of our minds that believes we are separate from spirit, God, source, spirit whatever you want to call the energy of spiritual truth. When we are tuning into the ego (the voice of fear) it is often unconscious because no one would willingly choose fear if they knew there was a better way. That fear voice unknowingly causes us to turn away from the voice of truth which is love, self love, spirit, forgiveness and faith. The ego’s tiny mad idea , and we as Gabby calls it causes our ego mind to create false projections of our reality, and we carry those projections with us and replay them over and over again in our belief systems about ourselves,, our relationships with other people, and even our perceptions of past events and situations. It isn’t that the voice of spirit aka love isn’t always within us, it’s that the voice of fear (ego) blocks the truth that love is already there.
Through the process of forgiveness we bring the voice of fear into the light and remove blocks to the awareness of loves presence. Sounds pretty deep right? It is. But it’s actually much simpler than it sounds. It’s the ego part of our mind that makes things complicated. Because once we shed light on fear it has no power over us any longer and love illumines every area of our life. I can’t even begin to describe how much this book has been trans formative in my life and helped me release crazy crap that was holding me hostage. I would recommend it to anyone. Even if you disagree with some of the material, you are bound to glean insight from it.
For most of my life I believed saying no to someone was selfish, that somehow by saying no I wasn’t being spiritual or in the act of saying no I was giving up the chance to be of service to someone or something. This in turn lead to feelings of guilt, an endless spiral of blaming myself or feeling bad for something I’d perceived I’d done “wrong,” I worried endlessly that saying “no” somehow made me a bad person. Especially if energetically I felt that the other person expected or needed me to say yes. Then, I felt had no choice but to swallow my feelings and agree to what was being asked of me:
1) Because deep down I love helping people, it is so important to me to be of service to others.
2) Because I just couldn’t bear the thought of hurting or disappointing anyone – even people I didn’t know.
3) Because I was afraid to set boundaries. I wanted people to like and approve of me
I had heard people speak about “owning your power” constructively, but I think I was too polite and soft – too much of a people-pleaser
to understand the difference between stepping into assertive power with kindness versus being afraid of becoming hard, mean, bitter and abusive of my personal power when using it with other people.
In the last year, I have been on a deeply personal journey learning to accept myself for who I am, learning to embrace my psychic and intuitive gifts as part of my life purpose and my true calling. Each is a process including learning to be comfortable saying “no” to certain people or situations. I am learning that sometimes saying no is the most loving thing to be done. I’ve learned that I am not serving with pure intention and love if I say I will do something,, but deep down feel uncomfortable. That uncomfortable feeling is my intuition speaking up and telling me something doesn’t feel right.
Sometimes saying “no” is an act of self-care, and your intuition will tell you the difference between whether it is time to walk away from a situation completely versus whether it is simply time for you to stay the course, face your fear step out of your comfort zone. If you take the time to sit and stillness and get in touch with your genuine feelings, the answer will come to you. I recently had an opportunity where I needed to say no. It wasn’t an easy decision because I haven’t said no to many things personally or professionally. This particular situation gave me the unmistakable message I needed to walk away. My personal energy was depleted, I didn’t feel positive about the project in question, I wasn’t being treated with respect, and ultimately the clients highest good wasn’t being served the way things stood. Saying no in this case was an act of love, done in the best interest of all with kindness and compassion.
As a child, I knew I was intuitive, but I chose to turn away from it. I wanted to fit in, and I was desperate for approval. I wanted to be liked and to belong. I always had a deep sense of spirituality. Without question, I have always believed in God, source, energy love and angels, but I found that talking about any of these subjects at any depth was intimidating for people and I felt I was labeled as “odd.” I already had enough that made me different (or so I perceived), I chose the path of fear. It’s Ironic really, I wanted to experience love so much that I was willing to go anywhere outside myself to get it. The funny thing is – love must exist within first. Nothing “out there” ie: other people, status, recognition. promotion, relationships or other things outside can “fill up” what we feel may be lacking in our lives.
This brings me to my connection with angels. I’ve already mentioned that I chose to turn away from my intuitive abilities. After several years of looking outside myself in virtually every area of my life – I was deeply lost, depressed and disconnected from spirit. I had reached an all time low in terms of how I felt about myself. My higher self knew that my destiny was to be of service to comfort and uplift, teach , speak, and consult but I was so desolate I couldn’t con-sieve of how I would find my calling. All I knew at the time was that I was determined to heal the parts of mt life that had brought me to such a breaking point. I had been “diagnosed” with a form of anxiety disorder, and at the time felt that everything I knew to be true in my life was crumbling around me. I knew in that moment that this current reality I was living was not my truth. I remember sitting on my couch filled with so much emotional pain that my body ached. I didn’t know it then, but my extreme sensitivity to energies had caused my to carry other people’s pain and suffering as well as my own. With tears blurring my vision I began to ask heaven for help. My intuition was screaming at me that there had to be a better way than this. My higher self was right – there was. Today, every value I once held has shifted. I now know the value that coping with extreme anxiety has taught me, and that I can shift my own perception of anything with the help of the angels, spirit, and the inner voice of love we all share. Spirit intervened for me and I was guided to take to the internet. I was guided literally to Gabrielle Bernstein’s website and she has become one of my greatest spiritual teachers and mentors. Just a side note about being guided – I had absolutely no idea where the guidance was taking me. I just knew it felt 100% right for me. That’s the way guidance works for all of us. We all have an inner voice that speaks truth, and we have an intuitive knowing when we follow the path that is meant for us. When I was lead to Gabby’s work, I knew I was home. I began a daily meditation practice even though I had never really meditated before.I changed my diet, began taking yoga I knew the key to my health and happiness was change. With meditation. and exposure to the uplifting spiritual teachings of Gabrielle Bernstein, Abraham Hicks, Marianne Williamson and Louis Hay I have been set on a life long process of creating genuine inner peace and happiness in my life. After two months of learning to listen to the voice of my guidance, studying the incredible work of Gabrielle Bernstein and A Course In Miracles; and continuing with my meditation process, one day I was listening to Gabrielle’s weekly radio show Spirit Junkie on Hay House Radio featuring an angel communicator. I instantly resonated with the gentleman being interviewed on the show, and my intuition was once again loudly speaking to me to continue investigating the connection I have felt with angels since childhood. Anytime I was investigating anything involving angels and spiritual teaching, I felt alive and incredibly calm and peaceful. The more I learned, the more I felt that my life purpose. I booked a session for myself with that same angel communicator from the radio show. During the session, I received confirmation of my natural intuitive ability, my connection to angels and that my life purpose involved spiritual counseling and using my gifts to support, uplift. motivate and serve others. I was vigilant in my meditation practice and spiritual learning. I asked the angels to continue guiding me along my path.
I asked for miracles, and the more I asked, the more they materialized. With the help of the angels I was blessed to receive certified Holistic Angel Coach™ training with Monick Halm & Nina Jasmine from Life Alchemy School. My life as a result of this training and other influences Spirit and the angels have infused as blessings have completely transformed me from the inside out. I am now using my intuitive gifts and natural talents as a leader speaker and teacher, and equally a student to help others progress in their lives. This is my life purpose, my calling, and a genuine blessing I will always be thankful for.
If you are an animal person who has always had a special spiritual connection with animals, then you probably know the innocent and unconditional love experienced by having a pet. Animals have souls like people do. Just like every other relationship in our life, pets are divinely assigned gifts from God to help us progress spiritually and experience unconditional love.
Animals pick up on our energies, and their purpose is to love unconditionally, and to absorb negative energies.
They offer us comfort and companionship that is pure. The bond of love that exists between pets and their owners is eternal and exists beyond time and space. This is why from a spiritual perspective, when the body leaves this plane of the physical world and the soul enters non-physical, our pets loving energy remains connected to us while we remain in our physical bodies, and even beyond that when we enter non-physical. Animals teach us about our capacity to love and offer unconditional comfort and protection. The only thing they want in return is love. Have you ever spent time observing your pet? A wonderful thing about animals which provides a great lesson for humans is that their focus is always on the present moment. They only know the here and now. With the exception of situations of serious animal abuse, animals have no use for thoughts of the past, nor do they dwell in worry of future events. Animals are perfect embodiments of what it means to just “be” in the moment. They live in a constant state of presence.
I often refer to my little 3lb Yorkshire Terrier as an angel in my life. I truly believe she is. Even before I got her I knew I wanted a very small Yorkie. It took about a year to manifest this desire everything from her name to the material means for her care was brought to me out of desire, to have her, the strength of my faith I would have a dog, my unwavering focus on what I wanted, and the strength of my belief that I was worthy of achieving my desire. Ever since, my little Emily has been a constant source of joy, love and comfort. She is a blessing I will always be thankful for
