Energetic shielding topic of April 2018 Questions & Answer call provided information that may have been new to you, expanded your knowledge, and/or served as a reminder of the importance to shielding yourself. This is especially important for highly sensitive and empathic folks.
What insights will you share with us?

I would like to share something. Some time ago I used to work with some very difficult and energetically negative people. It was draining and left me feeling like my soul was injured which was the only way I could describe it as it affected me so deeply. I heard about and tried a technique similar to what Val explained on the call about mirrors. I would imagine that I was surrounded by mirrors facing outward before I even stepped foot into work. I heard that the negativity would reflect back outward and negativity can not stand to look at itself. I never wished anything bad or harmful; just that I could be protected and safe from it. Then like a miracle, the negative and energetically toxic people kept a distance from me. One by one…each one of them either evolved and became like different people, got transferred or moved on to another job. In a very short time, I was surrounded by completely different positive energy and people. I forgot about this until now so I am reminded that I have this powerful technique to use when I need to strengthen my inner shield. Thank you so much…

Jo! this is a wonderful reminder for all of us. When I read what you shared about the mirrors, the visual really clicked in (I was not really ‘seeing it when Val brought it up in class). All that we are learning is so important and requires us to stay cognitive and put to use/action the skills and tricks we need to bypass our pesky mind trip-ups that get in our own way. We have an innate ‘self preservation power’….if we just acknowledge it, trust it, and apply it in our lives. Yay!

Jo, thank you for sharing this!! It also made better sense to me when you gave the example of the mirrors.

As I was expressing on the call yesterday about my own personal need to create a shield that prevents outer negative influences that attempt to thwart me and weaken me, I/we also need to incorporate that shielding from our inner critic and doubting Debbie’s that fills us with negativity and self doubt. I am going to put into place numerous programs to do both.
When I was new to massage, I remember one particular incident when I was working in a Chiropractor’s office and giving regular massage to a man that had a lot of emotional ‘stuff’ in addition to physical issues. He was a thin man, but an oh so powerful ‘energy sucker’. oh my Heavens, I would put my hands on this guy and immediately would feel energetically drained. I remember looking at the clock to see how much time had passed….aargh only 10min and it already felt like I had been working on him for over an hour. Needless to say following the 50min session, I was pooped out and felt yucky. I asked my massage teacher (I was taking an advanced class at the time) what I could do to protect myself? He said, ‘try envisioning a large hole underneath the massage table and all the guy’s negative energy slipping into the hole rather than latching onto you’. I tried it and it helped to a degree. I even threw salt over my shoulder before a session, and put vinegar in a small bowl and placed it in the corner. Also, what has helped me a lot in the past and still does to this day is this: I imagine a geometric form surrounding me as a protective shield….a circle, triangle, octagon, ect. ect.
Another shield I use is envisioning a beautiful golden circle of energy around my home which protects me and my animals, also around my car when I am driving.
I guess the important thing here is to use our imagination creatively morphing it into a strong intent which the Universe will conspire with us to protect us from any/all forms of harm. Wow what Power we have!

Hi Pam, I just read your post about the energy sucker. As you are probably already aware, this works both ways, but for those that might not realize it yet, I thought I would throw it out there. As Reiki or massage practitioners, or any healing modality where we come in physical or energetic contact with others, we have to constantly monitor the energy that we are putting out into someone else’s field. If we’re having an “off” day, we either need to fix it first or maybe reschedule our sessions for that day if it’s not easily fixed before we send our energy out into our clients’ fields. That’s also why it’s so important that we are very careful who we allow into our energy fields for massages, Reiki sessions, etc. I didn’t realize this for a long time, and when I became aware of it, it was like “duh”!! It made perfect sense. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Yes, Patty, you are so right on here. I have worked hard not to inadvertently project any of my ill feelings onto others; the geometric form helps keep what is mine in my field as well as repelling what is theirs coming into me. I too often envision myself in a blue bubble of perfection and protection…to do the same as noted above. Great info you conveyed for us to remember and to be mindful of! Thank You.
I am reminded of an awareness that I had all those years ago when I did massage at Chiropractor offices; the clients I worked on there, were not energies I myself ‘drew’ in, they were what the Chiropractor drew in; so I had to make double sure to protect myself.

Pamela, Thank you so much for sharing that experience, what has helped you and how you protect yourself . We learn so much from each other. Yes, we all sure do have such great power and once it is unleashed, and we allow it to take us on this journey, there is so much to learn and cherish..

That is so correct Jo!!!!!

Thank you Val Heart for sharing your experience on the Live Q & A with the energy vampire. I don’t know if you remember but I live in an apartment and a HSP. I’ve gone through different forms of energy shielding but yours helped out that Sunday night after I heard the recording.
I was very intrigued by the call, I listened to it twice to make sure I understood how to shield. In any case, that Sunday evening when I was already asleep in bed. I heard my neighbors making their usual noise and I immediately formed negative thoughts about them. I caught myself saying; “I just woke up! How can I form negative thoughts that quickly? I just woke up!” That is when I realized the negative thoughts were not mine. I immediately used your shielding technique along with mirrors and they stopped instantaneously!!!! A smile formed on my face since I was able to stop it and protect myself. Now, I practice the shielding technique on a daily basis when I feel I’m overcome with someone else’s feelings and thoughts as oppose to my own. More importantly, now it’s kinda cool. Who’da thunk it!!!! Hahaha…

Way to go Jeane! So fantastic at the immediate shift that took place…you Noticed, you became Aware; via discernment, and you took Action by incorporating the technique…..the energy Shifted! Well Done! Well Done!

This is one that I missed but really needed. There is a person in my life that has done numerous (bad) things to me and I have always forgive her. She is reportedly a witch, a Wiccan, but in practice she is not. I have seen her practice voodoo and send out negative energy to different people..
guess maybe thats why I tried to stay friends with her, thinking that kept me safe. But 2 years ago I discovered something else she tried to do to me and decided that is enough! I have not talked, emailed, texted with her since. She kept trying for months to contact me but I would not respond.
She still every few months tries again. I do believe that since I will not communicate with her, that she is sending bad energy to me and my dogs. So many things have happened to me physically this year and also to my dogs. She knows that the main way to hurt me is to hurt my dogs and I have often thought that I needed to somehow put some protection around myself and my dogs.
So that is all I have to do is put up imaginary mirrors around all of us
(years ago I used to have real mirrors on each side of the outside of my house) and/or imagine the golden circle of protection surrounding us?
Thanks for your input

I noticed this topic and I wanted to send a couple of links to my blog posts that are related to the protection topic. I felt like I needed protection back when I was guided with these two methods. I don’t anymore because I don’t believe that someone else can have an effect on my energy (a very long story about getting here, maybe I’ll blog about this sometime when I get a message…).
One method is very similar to the mirror option.
Another method is rather different but something that I was communicated to from a tree and spiders.
If anyone sees this message and happen to try them out, I’d like to hear how it went!
