Why Balance Your Energies
You ever wake up in the morning and feel "out of it", "not all there" or flighty? Or perhaps you notice in the middle of the day that you feel "heavy", or "pulled down". This could be from an unbalance in your energy field. There is some validity in the old adage "Too much of a good thing can still be bad for you". It's very true. Living to much in the spiritual mind and not being grounded isn't any better than those who live in the physical world and never give their spiritual natures a second thought, or a first one for that matter. It's an adage that tries to define living in extremes is not living in balance.
There are other ways to affect your energies as well. Worry and anxiety that causes you to always be thinking of issues and problems can make you flighty. Trying to burn the candle at both ends, always bogged down in work and never taking time to relax or release stress can pull you down. In either case, you can eventually affect your energy to the point of developing physical ailments.
So occasionally working to balance your energies and setting a shield of protection is a good idea. Depending on the events in your life, you may want to balance your energies once a week, or twice a month. Each person is different and handles life in different ways; so it's really up to you how often you feel you need this exercise.
One of the best methods in balancing and protecting yourself is to use visualization. Albert Einstein said in a theory paper "Thought is energy, to create it, just use your imagination." There are two different ways to balance and protect yourself with this method.
1. Simply surround yourself with white light, and imagine a force field being established around your physical body. However - to me this is equivalent to "trapping" unwanted stress, anxiety or negative energies within your physical body and inside your shield. So you might be blocking the external negative forces, but you're trapping your own negative energies that you create yourself, within your shield.
2. The better method is to generate a protection shield from the inside of your being and "push" those unwanted energies out of your body, balance your energy and then set a shield around you. This way you're clearing, cleansing, balancing and setting your shield of protection all at the same time. Now don't panic, it's not as hard as you think. You can even add a little step to this process to bring in positive Divine energy into your being to add to your wellbeing or mental state of being as well.
Clearing, Cleansing, Balancing & Setting Protection
The following is a step-by-step process for pushing the negative energies out of your body and calling upon the Divine forces to lift your "spirit" and aid in your protection. It doesn't take long to perform this mini-ritual. But you can certainly add to this with candles or other tools to enhance the process. I'll give some examples after this step-by-step process.
Clearing and Cleansing:
1. Sit in a comfortable position, to help you alleviate the stress within your body.
2. Close your eyes and take in a deep cleansing breath. Fill your lungs to their fullest capacity. Then release the breath through your mouth and push all the air out of your body. Take in 3 deep breaths through the nose, imagine the white light from the universe coming into your lungs and collecting at your solar plexus. (the solar plexus is located in the center of your abdomen, right where you ribs connect at the bottom).
3. With all 3 exhales, image all the stress, anxiety and negativity you have leaving your body carried out to the universe on a gray smoke where it can be dissipated and no longer do harm to anyone.
4. With each inhale, imagine the light collecting at your solar plexus beginning to enlarge. Each in take of white light, increases the size of the white bubble of light. See this white light moving up and down the inside of your body from this point. Imagine the warmth of the white divine energy as it passes through your muscles and organs. Feel the tingling sensations as the light moves down to your toes and simultaneously up your body to the top of your head. Imagine your entire body filled by this white divine light, from the inside out.
5. As the light of divine energy grows imagine any left over negative stresses, anxieties and unwanted energies being forced out of your body. See this as a cloud of gray smoke being pushed out of your being by the growing divine white light.
6. As you breath in the energy from the divine, image the light is growing so much that it pushes through the confines of your body. Imagine the light growing to encompass your physical body about 2 feet in diameter. See the last aspects of the unwanted energy floating out into the universe where it too can be dissipated and no longer do harm to anyone.
1. Now go back to your solar plexus and imagine a sliver cord, like an extension cord moving down your spine. See it travel through your body and down through the chair, or bed, or whatever you're sitting on.
2. Continue watching the cord move down through the floor, the foundation of the building you're in, the bedrock, the molten lava of the earth until finally your cord reaches the center of Mother Earth. See the cord 'plug into' the earth like a cord into an outlet.
3. Now imagine the yellow energy of the earth traveling quickly up your cord. Watch it take the same path back to you, that you took to move the cord to the Earth's core. Just before the energy enters your body, imagine it slowing down and gently moving into your body. Imagine it's warmth and slight pull on your body as it moves to your solar plexus.
4. With each breath you take, the Earth's energy begins to spread through your body. Watch it's glowing yellow color slowly push through your limbs until you're fully engulfed in the Earth's grounding energy.
1. Now go back to your solar plexus and imagine another silver cord, like another extension cord moving up your spine. See it travel through your body and up through your head. Watch it move through the ceiling, the roof, the clouds and atmosphere out into depths of space.
2. Now see the cord plug into the Divine Universe, some people like to imagine their cord plugging into a giant white galaxy. A wonderful Christian woman I know like to see a divine Angel take her cord and plug it into another extension cord, only she can't see where the other end of the extension cord is plugged into. But she knows it's in God's hands. I like seeing the cord float in space and becoming a lightening rod for the Divine Energy. Use your imagination for what feels right to you.
3. Once the cord is plugged in, imagine the Gold energy of the Divine light traveling through your cord, back down through the sky, the building and ceiling until it reaches your head. Imagine it gently and slowly moving into your body.
4. With each breath you take, the Divine energy begins to spread through your body. Imagine it's uplifting cool feeling as it travels down your spine to your solar plexus. See it grow and expand to engulf your body. Don't mix the Gold Divine energy with the yellow Earth energy. Instead see these two intertwining, remaining separate, but working together to balance your energies. See both energies of light gently swirling inside your body until they have over filled your physical body container and pushed outside your skin.
1. Imagine that you're floating in an egg of energy. The white energy you created, the yellow Earth energy and the gold energy of the Divine, all gently and calmly moving through you and around you.
2. Say a prayer asking your guides and teachers to come to you and to help with the purpose of this protection. State your intention clearly and ask The GreatSpirits/God to help you with your purpose. Don't forget to thank them up front for their efforts.
3. You can add a little step here for putting an exclamation on setting divine protection if you'd like. Take one more very deep breath and see a strong gold divine light, shimmering down into your body to your solar plexus. See this light quickly grow and pass through the white light you have established as your shield. Think and see the gold light as the GreatSpirits/God hand passing through the shield you created and within seconds forming it's own shield around yours. Seeing clearly the outer rim of gold, protecting the inner white shield. Think of this as a hard shield of Gold from the Divine spirit's own hand, setting a hard outer shell to protect the white energy shield you created. Make sure you add a special thanks to the GreatSpirits/God for their addition to your energy.
