Studying ways to balance energy and emotions is something I have a passion for. Sometimes, being an empath, it is necessary to be mindful of energy just to function in certain situations or around specific people. If this is not done, there can be an overflow of emotions and energy that needs to be grounded out in order to restore harmony and enjoy the present moment. A simple way of grounding and balancing is visualization. I am sensitive to stuff from other people and realized how to shield and cloak with energy by practicing this exercise.
Be alone in a setting that is powerful or safe for you or in nature where it is peaceful. To begin first bring awareness to breathing deeply and slowly. Relax your shoulders and stand or sit comfortably. Then visualize your body sinking roots through your feet into to the earths core. Connect to and wrap your roots around the earth. Next visualize energy from your head rising up to meet the light of the sun. Imagine light streaming upwards like branches of a tree all the way to the sun. Imagine glowing vines wrapping around the source of life. You are rooted in earth below and to the light sun above. Be mindful of breathing deeply fully. Now feel a warm ball of light begin to form in your core at the solar plexus. Allow it to build it up to a luminous bubble, then you expand that bubble out as far as you can imagine. Include your surroundings, all the visual field, all your thoughts then further expand that bubble to include the earth and your roots and the sun and your branches. When the bubble is all of your relaxed consciousness sit in it for a while and enjoy the space, fill it up with your awareness so you can imagine you are reaching its outer edges. Let your breath fill expand and contract this space of awareness. Then let your mind free from time and space like a TARDIS. Create another bubble quite small that you just fit inside, then visualize the big bubble squashing into the small bubble. Imagine yourself stepping in and out of this bubble to get a good feel for it. Like a portal, black hole, or vortex every time you step inside the little bubble the entire big bubble is available to you. However enormous it is inside, when you step outside it seems contained and small and neat. Breathe and allow the waves of relaxed breath to ride the expanding and contracting energy. When the feeling of calm has filled you, begin to release the branches and roots of energy and bring the light back to your center and your focus to the room or natural surroundings. When leaving the place of solitude or the quiet serenity of nature you’ve been in and head back to regular awareness, you keep the little bubble small and strong and light with you. Make its edges as small as desired. Inside it will be as expansive as the universe. Carry this through everyday life. Know when to open the protective bubble and be protected from other energy entering personal space. Stress or anxiety can be a manifestation of feeling unprotected. With this visualization we can create the feeling and reality of peace and tranquility. Restoring balance and harmony to our mind body and soul.
