Shielding, Centering & Grounding 

Image

To Shield and protect your energy field:

Visualize intently and affirm:

“White light surrounds and protects me… Violet light surrounds and protects me… Golden light surrounds and protects me… I am safe, protected and shielded.
(I also like to add: I feel only my own emotions… I absorb only the highest vibrations of love from my environment and interactions…) 


To center and ground:

Visualize intently and affirm:

“My centering cord of white light comes down from the sky….. Entering in through my crown chakra… Centering me as it slowly moves down through my third eye… throat… heart center… solar plexus… sacral… and root chakra…. Bringing all centers into alignment as it moves down through my hips… thighs… knees… shins and calves… ankles and feet…… I feel the bottoms of my feet begin to grow roots like a tree….. Burrowing deep into the Earth… growing deeper and stronger… fanning out wider in all directions, supporting me… holding me up… and grounding me safely into the Earth plane…I am grounded and centered… And so it is.”

I have truly come to believe that these three simple visualizations/affirmations are the most powerful tools I have ever found. They were the first thing that my incredible first teacher (Laura Perez) taught me back in 2008.  I used them 100 times a day at first and they completely changed my life, immediately. I use them any time I am not fully present, conscious and aware. Any time I am not fully grounded and centered. In order to not be overwhelmed by our gifts of sensitivity, we need to shield and protect our energy fields.

Centering calms and focuses the mind and grounding brings us fully into our bodies and into the present moment. Connecting us with the support and love from Mother Earth. Being fully in our bodies also means feeling our emotions. These other mantras below can help with getting comfortable with that 🙂 These tools gain power and become more tangible with time. The more you use them, the more you will feel their power… Your power, and the power of all the forces that guide, protect and love you. I have found that every time you shift a pattern by consciously breathing and affirming these mantras of love, trust and gratitude, you create and strengthen new pathways in your brain. When you continue to re route your thoughts to these truths, the old beliefs based in fear, guilt, etc. eventually just shrivel up and fall away.

For example, I used to suffer from anxiety and panic attacks on almost a daily basis for years.  During one period, I would pass out at the end of them. I had centuries of trauma inside of me and I had absolutely no idea how to deal. I survived by coping. Numbing. Escaping. Repressing. When I began my process of allowing this trauma to surface and feeling what I had been resisting for years, the flood gates of emotion were opened. Years of anger, rage, grief, shame, guilt and fear came roaring out of me like a tidal wave. As I am such a sensitive creature, the intensity of what I felt was crippling. When I started applying these new tools, I realized that they are quite universal and innate within us. Intuitively, it just makes sense. So, when I would feel a panic attack coming on, instead of giving all of my power to the fear and literally leaving my body (hence the fainting) to get relief.. I would embrace it. Breathe into it. Repeat over and over again “I am safe and protected. It’s safe to be in my body. Its safe to feel these feelings. Its safe to feel this fear.” As I was affirming this with every ounce of strength I can invoke, I am grounding this fear/panic out of my body through the roots growing from the bottoms of my feet. Pushing it down into the earth directly using the breath and fierce intention. The way I have always seen it is as if my spirit is coming further and further into my body and connecting with the feelings and then grounding them out, as opposed to letting the fear rise up, take over and push my spirit out of the top of my head… Does that make sense? So with practice, I stopped passing out.. and then I stopped going into full-blown attacks… and then I stopped having attacks at all… And then I stopped feeling anxious entirely. Incredible. Such a blessing.

As we strengthen this tool, we are able to get to a place where we can do the entire meditation (shielding with light, centering with white light through each chakra, and grounding out with roots that grow to the center of Mother Earth) with your mind completely present, never wandering. The more present and focused you are during the meditation, the more power and strength it has.  At first, your mind will seem to wander every few seconds.  Just take a deep breath and start over. Be patient and compassionate with yourself. You are re-programming your brain and clearing cellular memory with every conscious breath. For the chakra related mantras, please feel free to reword them and recreate them to your deepest resonance. Take what works for you and leave what doesn’t. Love and blessings!

  1. This is fantastic. So many blessings you..The Universe brought me here to know these truths! Thank you for sharing this so I could stumble across it when I needed it! Walk in Peace💜

  2. these are wonderful. Thank you for sharing with such generosity ❤

  3. Blessings and love to you.
    I don’t know where to start. I’ll say that in my process to recovery I’ve learned a lot to a point that sometimes it feels as if any help is beyond me and coming across this reminds me that its all universal. There’s fear and there’s peace. And if you fainted from panic attacks and recovered, I haven’t fainted so maybe there is hope for me. I can’t thank you enough. Bless your soul.
