First I begin with a simple grounding exercise such as roots growing from my feet and connecting with the crystalline core of the Earth. Then I take a few quick moments to put up my energetic shields before I leave the house (or my room depending on household circumstances.) I begin with visualizing myself inside a large egg of White Light. Then I zip up my Auric Field. To do this, you literally make the motion of pulling a zipper from your pubic bone up to your chin. You have many vulnerable energetic Meridians running through the torso and you don't want to be leaking energy. Then I call upon Archangel Michael to protect me during the day Physically and Energetically. I then visualize an Amethyst-Diamond Shield of Light around the egg of white light. This is the color of Archangel Michael. It also keeps the 3rd Eye open and seeing situations clearly and from the higher perspective. Then I add a 3rd layer of Pink Light to this 3-part Shield. The pink light is wonderful because it helps deflect other people's Negativity and Drama. I notice when I do this exercise that less people seek me out wanting to unload their "stuff" on me. You can re-shield as many times as you feel necessary throughout the day.
When I get home, I take a few moments of quiet to clear myself with Sage and ask Archangel Michael to cut any Etheric Cords that may have attached during the day. I say the words "I let go of anything that is not mine. All overwhelming psychic energies are released by me automatically, easily, effortlessly." You should feel an immediate Shift.
If all else fails, or you want to have some fun - fight Negativity Ninjas with Cloaking. This is where you pull in your energy really tight to your body and visualize yourself as Invisible. It takes practice but it is amazing the people that won't even notice you when you are Cloaked!
Much Love & Light, Amy
