Our world is being asked to slow down. As we find ourselves in unfamiliar routines, it's common to feel unsure and uncomfortable. Everything is disrupted. We have a new set of circumstances to which to respond.
During this time, it's important to be present to what is and just be with it. Listen in to your body. What is it telling you? What wants to be heard?
If you find yourself feeling drained, notice how you are exchanging. What are you giving your energy to? What are you worrying about, giving mental energy to? What do you fear? What emotions arise?
These experiences are all exchanges with the greater field of energy and of potential.
We're all responsible for how we show up, where we set our boundaries, and how much we take on. It's up to us to set the rules and pace for our own system. And it starts with good self care along with an awareness of how we are exchanging energetically with the world around us.
We all understand the importance of good self care for promoting balance and optimal wellbeing. But many lack a thorough understanding or have awareness of the energy body, also known as the subtle body. It's easy to see why because this aspect of our body is invisible to the eye. How else would we know it's there, much less that it too needs attention and self care?!

In this post, I'm covering how to protect your energetic field. By employing protection protocols, you strengthen the consistency of your vibration and reduce how energy that isn't yours affects your field. This will cut down on the fluctuations you experience mentally, emotionally and physically throughout the day. It will allow you to be less affected by foreign energy.
It's important to note that when it comes to energy, there really isn't a good or bad. But whether it makes you expand or contract, that is a better way to discern what feels aligned with you.
Here are four simple ways you can protect your energy field:
Start your day with a daily ritual of going within and connecting with your high self. This can be coupled with meditation or it can simply be initiated with a few deep, centering breaths. Take a moment to clear your mind and become fully present. Then call upon the universe, the divine, or any high beings you connect with. Ask for their protection.
This can become a daily prayer that is the same every day. Choose what feels good to your system. Here's one I love:
"I invite in the healing white light of God's love and divine protection to surround me throughout the day."
Selenite is a self-charging crystal that is wonderful for clearing negative energy. Carry it with you in your purse, pocket or car. Take a moment to connect with it during your day when you need a reset. You can come back to your daily protection ritual if you find it supportive. However, once you've set the intention this isn't necessary.
Take a moment to come into the present by taking a few deep, cleansing breaths. Connect with the earth by envisioning your roots growing out of your feet and down into the earth. Say either silently to yourself or aloud, "I release any energy that isn't mine, sending it down to the earth to be transformed and reused."
Notice any sensations in your body. You may feel energy leaving the body. It is common to feel it in the solar plexus, heart and hips. Just observe what you feel.
To complete the exercise, call back any of your energy that you may have scattered about. Take a deep breath and feel it return.
End with the expansive feelings of gratitude by saying, "thank you, thank you, thank you."
Crystal energy helps us to hold a more consistent vibration. When we wear gemstone jewelry, we entrain with the energetic vibrations of the crystals. This supports us with grounding, connecting to the earth and staying clear and balanced.

It's important to consider the energetic body as part of good self-care, especially during times of stress and uncertainty. By incorporating daily practices and rituals for protection, you impart greater balance and stability which will allow you to shine a brighter light to all those around you.
