Energetic protection can be a confusing subject. The plethora of misinformation to be found can add even more confusion. Unfortunately, much of this misinformation can worsen matters and have the opposite desired energetic effect.
The need for protection is usually triggered when you are feeling unsafe, this includes energetic and intuitive levels. Implementing some simple tools when you are feeling unsafe, bombarded, confused, overwhelmed, scattered, or struggling with intense situations, can be extremely calming and helpful.
I have some tried and true easy peasy energetic protection suggestions I would like to share with you.
Crystal and gemstone spirit medicine is one of the most convenient ways to provide a sense of energetic safety, clearing, grounding, and protection. There are many stones and crystals that bolster protection and shielding. Inviting this powerful protection into your life is as easy as holding a stone during meditation or carrying one with you throughout your day. Consider one of the following healing allies, all of which provide energetic clearing and protection:
If crystals and stones aren’t your thing, consider trying my energy protection bath ritual:
Energy Protection Bath Ritual
Into a small glass mason jar mix the following:
In the bottom of an empty plugged bathtub, place ¼ cup of Epsom Salts and ¼ cup sea salts, making a mound in the middle of your tub. Make a small well in the middle of the mound of salts. Gently pour 1 to 2 tablespoons of your oil mixture into the well. As you fill the tub, use your hand to agitate and mix the salts into the bath water. Close the bathroom door, light candles, do some deep breathing, and positive affirmations. Soak in the tub for about 20 minutes as you sip on some peppermint tea.
So, the next time you are feeling the need to protect and shield energetically, grab your favorite stone and take a deep breath or take a bath ritual break. Either way, you will be feeling better in no time!
