Are you a sensitive person? What I mean is, do you feel other people’s energy and emotional states very easily? Do you get affected easily by certain TV shows or the news?
I know I definitely do.
I have been very sensitive to the energy around me for as long as I can remember. For most of my life, this aspect of myself was very painful and it held me back from pursuing my passions.
Since it is so easy for sensitive people to pick up the energy of who's around them. When others feel anxious, scared, sad, or annoyed… so do they and it can be completely overwhelming and exhausting.
Here’s one positive thing… I really believe that once you learn some strategies to protect your energy, being a highly sensitive person can be a superpower.
This is why it is so important to learn how to create energetic boundaries to protect yourself from energy and emotions that do not belong to you so you can be healthier, happier, more productive, and more successful.
Below are 4 techniques I use every day to protect my energy and vibration. (These are great for you even if you are not a highly sensitive person.)
4 Simple Steps to Protect Your Energy
1. Wear Different Hats
Different events and instances require different versions of you. When I am with my one on one coaching clients my energy field is wide open. It’s so important for me to be open to and feel their energy as well as to receive the downloads from the universe I am send for them.
My boundaries are much different when I go to networking events or go out to dinner. During these times my energy is more bubbled up (you’ll learn about this in step 2.)
This doesn't mean that I am closed off emotionally, I still set the intention to be a beacon of light and love to everyone in the room I just make sure I am not an open channel to accept in other people's energy. Basically I make sure to put on my "light and love" but protected “hat” so that I don’t accidentally take on other people's energy.
In last week’s blog we discussed the power of intention, Setting intentions is scientifically proven to work in many different aspects of life. This is yet another instance where intention setting is very powerful.
2. Bubble Yourself Up
If you believe in a higher power, angels, or the universe this one's for you. What I like to do is ask the Divine (God, Source, Spirit, The Universe, Guardian Angels) to put a bubble of protection around me.
I envision this bubble like a Teflon coating. Positivity can come in but negative cannot. Another thing you can do is fill your bubble up with pure light and love or your favorite calming color. I also like to surround my home and loved ones in my bubble too.
3. If it's Not a Hell Yes, It’s a Hell No
There is absolutely nothing more important than how you feel. If it doesn't feel good it is important to say no. I totally understand this is easier said than done. For many people saying no is very difficult. When you are learning to allow this to become an easier process for you it can be great to ask yourself a few questions.
One of the #1 questions my clients ask me is, “How do I know the difference between my intuition/soul and fear?” Such a great question! The truth is, at first, this can be a bit difficult to do, however, with practice it gets easier and easier.
I have 2 simple strategies you can use to figure out if something is a hell yes, or a hell no to your soul.
#1- Fear is like a scream while your soul is like a whisper. Take the time to quiet your mind with meditation, alone time, while moving your body, or spending time in nature to quiet the voice of the ego (the fear-based self) so you can hear your soul speak.
#2- Journal it out. Take time to write out how you feel. How does saying no affect your life? How would saying yes affect your life? Let yourself be very honest and feel free to let your deepest thoughts and emotions out (you can always burn it after!)
Are you afraid to hurt someone’s feelings? Are you afraid you might mess up? Are you afraid of judgment? If any thoughts like this come up, you know the ego (fear) is in the driver's seat.
4. Give Back Energy to Its Rightful Owner (and get yours back)
This next one is something I learned from Gabrielle Bernstein (the author of the Universe Has Your Back and many others) but I made it my own.
The prayer or intention below is something I use daily and sometimes multiple times a day depending on how many people I am around or where I go.
Please save this image on your phone or screenshot it so you can use it daily. (Feel free to post this image on your social media to spread the love. Make sure you tag me so I can like, comment, and share!)
There you go, my fellow sensitive people! hope you will implement some of these strategies to protect your energy today. When you do, please be sure to message me to let me know how your energy feels after.
Wishing you so much love!
