Why shielding is necessary
I've been reading your posts on shielding and am so happy to report this is something I know a great deal about.
I would like to shed my informational light on shielding yourself and what it means and why it is important.
We don't shield ourselves away from the world. Instead we shield ourselves from certain thoughts and emotions, but never against. Shielding from
implies a protective device just so you don't pick up so much yuck from the collective consciousness. Shielding yourself against
the world implies adversity. We don't ever want that. That is bad juju and creates exclusion instead of inclusion....and yes we do want to love the world. But that doesn't mean being wide open for all and any energies. In order to be effective, to love the self first and then to realize how connected we are we must be selective about what we are willing to play with and what energies are not good for us or bad for us. You wouldn't step in dog poop just because it was natural, right? You would go around it honoring the fact that it is and it exists all the same. But let it BE.
There is energy out there that is not good for us. Anyone who has ever been around lots of people knows that. You walk into a room and don' want to go near a certain person, yet there are other people you gravitate towards. This is a good thing. We always want to be with people who are good for us, not be with people who are bad for us.
In terms of grounding the self...excellent idea. We need to be in our bodies and connected to Mother Earth or Gaia and Father Sky or Creator. Bringing the energy down into your body through the crown chakra, along the spine, cemented it into the earth and then bring it back up again through the spine out the top of your head and around your body in 360 degrees and then back up through the spine from the base of your body. You want to keep this flow going and it will protect you, for sure.
The idea is to put up your shields, which you can find on http://www.immunics.org
and do the grounding. IMO, we need to BE completely where we are when we are there and have the know how to shield ourselves from negative information regardless of where it comes from. The more you do that the clearer you will be. I don't leave home without either thing done. I just feel too bad if I don't do it. It's not worth it.
I am so glad you guys are here. I didn't know you existed. yeah!!!
Blessings to all, Ria
PS I am an intuitive energy healer who has been at this game a long time. I am also extremely sensitive to my environment and have spent most of my life trying to understand what the heck was going on with me and the world around me. Happy to share...hope it helps everyone.
BTW...another thing that is so very important is to be completely connected to Creator. The more connected we are to Creator or Source Energy or whatever you want to call it the better off you are going to be and function. I find the shielding and being connected to Creator is tantamount to my health, happiness and my ability to function well in the world.
Be well all!
