Teacher, blogger and creator of the Chakra Cards, this website has something for everyone to feel amazing.
I went into a fantastic alternative shop in Fremantle this morning and was talking to the woman who worked there about the dizzying chaos that exists in the world that can unsettle our energy. Her advice was to surround myself with protection. And in many ways, I agree. Yes, five, ten or even fifteen years ago that would have worked for me, but it sort of seems a bit like a step backwards to Kindergarten when I’m studying for my Masters’. There is no doubt that using light, colour or imagery to “protect” yourself from other energies is a valuable skill. But if you are like me, shielding is not enough anymore. There is a new level of consciousness that we are rising to and shielding or protection assumes that we are separate beings from all other living beings.
I want connection, not disconnection. I don’t want my close my energy off to being empathetic to the suffering of the world, or someone’s sadness, or anger or joy or whatever emotion that is working for them in the moment. I don’t want to feel their feelings, but I certainly want to be able to connect to them on an energetic level. If my being strong and steady helps them to see a way out of their space, then surely shielding is not enough, surely shielding is holding the world back. If I am strong, if I am fully centred in divine love, then others can see a way to rise to me, not me to go to them and then require “protection.”
Recently, I’ve been feeling like it’s a much better practice to dig my energetic roots deep into the earth and connect with this living, breathing organism that is our planet. From there I can draw my energy from the Earth and raise it up to meet the light energy that travels downward. If you are familiar with the masculine and feminine principles, the basic premise is that the feminine is the Earth or the Goddess and the masculine is the Spirit, the God. This makes more sense to me than “protecting” myself from negative energies. To use the energy that is within and around us to strengthen our being, our own inner light, surely that is preferable?
Energy is just energy. There is no positive, no negative. We have slipped into this mindset where we deal in opposites. Even the masculine-feminine paradigm is a way of humans describing the connecting energetic pathway that joins this planet with everything that exists. Rather than putting up a wall of separation, we need to connect. The great work coming out of Perth, Western Australia from The Liberators International is a fantastic example of a group of people building connection between humans and breaking down these walls that we put up (www.theliberators.com.au).
We need shift our thinking from protection and separation to union by completely ground ourselves into ourselves, to connect to who we really are, that is a divine spark of the universe. To ask guides or angels or whatever you want to call it for “protection” what you are really saying is that you are happy for other beings to take responsibility for your energy, when, we should be ascending into higher states of consciousness by taking on this role on our own. I don’t know about you, but I’m aiming for higher states of being and that means shedding much of what I think I already know and questioning whether those beliefs still serve me.
That protection that you are asking for is within yourself, you have infinite power within you. The current energies of the planet are asking for us to step up, to move towards higher states of being and that means questioning if the belief in “shielding” or “light protection” are still serving you. Are you up for the challenge? This is my truth. I have spoken.
