Everyday we encounter different energies; some positive and some are indeed negative.
Often times people don't even think twice about the energy their are putting out, let alone what energy they are picking up.
We are here to change that.
If you stumbled upon this blog post, chances are you are an empath.
An empath is someone who psychically takes on others emotional state. We are extremely sensitive to our surroundings, and it is important to learn how to protect yourself.
Being an empath is nothing to be ashamed of. It is also something that you do not need to “fix”. But it is something to acknowledge in yourself and learn to be mindful of your emotional safety.
5 Ways to Protect Yourself from Negativity
1. Picking up on negativity
Recognize when something is off is the first step to protect yourself. Many people tune in through their gut, often times our body will tell us first when something is wrong. Always trust your intuition.
Second method to protect yourself is by smudging your body. You can use my handmade rosemary smudge wands or palo santo! Rosemary cuts through any negativity instantly while also purifying the air. Palo santo wards off evil and misfortune and is perfect if someone is sending you ill intentions.
3. Using your imagination
Close your eyes and begin to tune in with your energy field. Imagine it as a bubble surrounding you. Begin to tune into the negativity around you and witness it bounces off your bubble of energy. See how your aura is protecting you, and understand that it is you who gives energy permission to come in.
Affirmations are a powerful tool to use when declaring your protection. An affirmation is similar to a mantra, you simply say a phrase over and over again, owning it with everything in you. To declare protection from others negativity simply say "
Let theirs be theirs, let mine be mine. I don’t have to take that on.", or "I guard and protect my energy."
5. Carrying crystals for protection
Crystals are amazing tools to you for protection. the earth has provided us with an abundance of gems that will ward off evil, cleanse your energy centers, and actually absorb and transform dense energy.
Top 5 crystals for protection are black tourmaline, onyx, orgonite, black kynite, and jet stone.
You can get these crystals in my shop, as well as your local crystal store.
This is a constant process as an empath, but it does get easier as time goes on. Being mindful of your energy and who you hangout with. Carrying around crystals is a big help as well as using affirmations to create a stronger and long lasting sense of safety.
