Are you constantly trying to protect your energy and ward off danger?
Are you wary of things being ‘too good’?
I know you’ve been hurt before. It makes total sense that you have built protective mechanisms to feel safe in the world. I understand why you are constantly smudging your space and clearing your belly.
The thing is, if we constantly continue to give our attention to clearing and processing we will continue to magnetize more and more to continue processing and protecting. My friend Matt Kahn lovingly calls this the ‘Cosmic Janitor’ – it’s time to put the broom and smudge stick down, we no longer need to sweep the karmic basement.
As the feminine, it is our nature to want to open, to surrender and to allow. When we build walls around ourselves, we begin to close off to the magic. We stop talking to strangers and allowing people in. We may find ourselves in a constant state of judgement or spells of protection.
In a universe of ‘all is energy’ how do we find the balance between completely trusting the flow and also holding practical discernment?
Imagine this: the world is our external mirror, reflecting back to you what you put out. So every time we drop a token of love into the collective, another reason to love returns. Every time we judge, criticize, or dramatize, the universe will continue to feed that story. This means we get to choose what we desire to have reflected back to us.
If you look into the mirror and smile you will receive a smile.
If you look in the mirror and frown you will receive a frown .
This is a micro-cosmic lens of the macro-cosmic reality.
Ok, stay with me.
Obviously we don’t have complete control over our external circumstances and how other people around us behave. However, we do have control of our emotions and our thoughts. We have control over how we wish to perceive our external environment.
We have control over our sensing of danger lurking or magic awaiting.
Here’s the secret, if we spend consistent quality time strengthening our energetic body, refining our mind and focusing on the good, then we can spend less energy on protection and discernment. With a strong auric field, which you can think of as an extended energetic outline of your physical body, danger won’t even be attracted to you. . When we take the time to fill ourselves with love and light, that is exactly what we will magnetize. So we can spend more time celebrating and less time processing – hallelujah!
A refined human has an aura that can extend up to nine feet. A strong aura automatically uplifts and improves mood, as well as the whole body system. It is a subtle space that interweaves us with the universe and allows us to attract opportunities, vitality and wealth.
Our aura provides natural protection against disease and a negative environment. When the aura is weak, there is a sense of vulnerability to everything around us, like germs, attitudes, and emotions. When our aura is defragmented we feel shrunken, confused and dim.
“The aura changes. You are ten trillion cells. They change every seventy-two hours. A person can lie, but the aura doesn’t lie. You can very rhythmically read it; it will tell you everything. We want to grow in our strength, right? That’s the purpose of life: to be vital, to grow, so we can face every day, every person, every relationship, everything with excellence.”
Let’s experiment. Here is an invitation to spend the next 40 days taking 5-10 minutes daily to strengthen and light-infuse your auric field. Do this at the beginning of the day to set the tone and intention of the day. Journal your progress and report back.
We want to know how it feels when you can open and trust more.
We are eager to hear how the magic flows into your experience as you focus more of your energy on strengthening from the inside out rather than protecting from the outside in.
