Positive energy strengthens us and serves as a buffer against the harsher aspects of life.
The best way to protect ourselves in every aspect of our lives is to have strong vibrant field so we are not as vulnerable to negative or discordant energies.
In addition, stress, blocked negative emotions, unhealed emotional trauma, negative thinking, worry, fear, and toxic interactions with others also unbalance our fields. Examples of the latter are: people and situations that do not honor who you are, respect you, or contribute to your well being. I am sure you have noticed how you feel after being around someone who is negative in some way or does not treat you well. As a result of your interaction you feel exhausted, stressed or out of sorts in some way.Your feelings are caused by the disruption of energy– that occurs first, the feelings follow.
Another fairly typical situation is when you find yourself doing something you really did not want to do, that was not in accord with who you are or where you wanted to be. Have you ever gone along with someone or something and felt a sense of inner tension? Of course, we all have. But when we begin to understand that these types of situations weaken the field, perhaps it becomes easier to choose more wisely, on our own behalf or at least self correct after the event. A weakened auric field leaks energy and that is not healthy for us and ultimately not good for the others involved either. There are times when we freely and even lovingly go along with someone else’s desires…that kind of interchange does not have a negative effect as you were open, and cooperative–as a result your energy would remain free and flowing.
A strong defense against the negative things in life AND a strong offense for the positive is to develop “subtle energy competency” . Doing so creates a strong, vibrant energy field. In addition, it gives us a means to re-balance or repair when needed. Of course avoiding places, people or situations where you know your energy may be compromised is also a strategy….but we can’t hide from life, so it is essential to have a full toolbox that includes proactive skills!
