AMY SCHER: “3 Simple Rules For Protecting Yourself From Energy Vampires”

Ascension Avatar note: I haven’t tried these methods yet, but the ‘Tarzan’ chest-beating exercise brought a good laugh. Can you imagine doing this in public? It just might do the trick, and would probably send most ‘energy vampires’ running for the hills!

“Thumping a gland in the center of your chest, called the thymus gland, gives you an immune system boost and is also effective for calming fear and balancing your entire system quickly. Simply use your fist and ‘thump’ like Tarzan for about 30 seconds and some big deep breaths.”

Energy vampires are all around us. Here are a few tools you can use to protect yourself!

The human body generates an electromagnetic field. When that field is easily disrupted, it can manifest in many ways including being ‘sensitive’ to people and environments. You might recognize the feelings of being a sensitive soul. Being around a certain someone puts you in a bad mood. Having to go into a crowded party overwhelms you. When someone isn’t happy with you, you feel as if you’re being physically attacked.

Being energetically sensitive means that you’re picking up on and absorbing negative energy from those around you. You’re not just moody! Great news, right?

Having a strong and balanced energy system is the best way I’ve learned to stay protected from energy vampires. Do this daily and you’ll have a little routine that will help strengthen your system so you can be anywhere, at any time, and feel calm and confident.

3 Simple Rules For Protecting Yourself From Energy Vampires

Rule #1: Balance

Make sure your energy system is strong and balanced. There are many ways to do this but one of my favorites is the “thymus thump.” Thumping a gland in the center of your chest, called the thymus gland, gives you an immune system boost and is also effective for calming fear and balancing your entire system quickly. Simply use your fist and “thump” like Tarzan for about 30 seconds and some big deep breaths.

Rule #2: Ground

Ground your energy. The more grounded, or connected to the earth’s energies you are, the less shaken you’ll be by your environment. A great way to “ground” is by literally pulling your energy down through your feet.

Place your hands at the sides of your waist. With your thumb in the front and fingers toward the back, slide your hands slowly and firmly down your legs. When you get to your feet, squeeze at the sides of your feet. Doing this on grass, dirt, or sand makes it even more powerful.

Rule #3: Protect

By tracing your central meridian, an energy pathway running up the front of your body, also highly attuned to thoughts and emotions, you are able to strengthen it.

Place your hands at the bottom end of the central meridian, which is at your pubic bone. Inhale deeply as you simultaneously pull your hands straight up the center of your body, to your lower lip. Repeat three times. With the electromagnetic force of your hands, you are literally moving the energy in the meridian in the direction of its strength and in turn, the meridian is strengthening you. While doing this exercise, you can also add an affirmation such as “I am safe and protected”.

Breathe! Breathing allows energy movement in your body. If you hold your breath in crowds or around difficult people, you are actually preventing any negative energy from movinʼ right through you.

Cross your arms/legs when feeling energetically vulnerable. This actually protects your aura and creates an energetic shield. Negative energy being directed at you will tend to bounce off of you and return to the sender.

Pick your location wisely. Stand by a window or door in crowds and avoid sitting at the front of a class or room where people direct their energy toward you.

Black tourmaline, a crystal that can be purchased for just a couple of dollars, is an excellent negative energy absorber. Put it in your pocket, purse, or just keep it close by when feeling vulnerable.

Now you have lots of minute-or-less tools to keep you balanced, grounded, and protected. Just don’t forget, they only work if you use them.

Ahhh, doesn’t that feel better already?

ERIC RAINES: “Observe, Not Absorb”

Ascension Avatar note: “What’s yours is yours, what’s mine is mine” is a principle mantra from Cameron Day, whom, according to Eric, has been a huge inspiration. 🙏

.   .   .

 

True empathic abilities do not absorb others emotions or energy. An example would be, “I can feel anger radiating from that person.” as opposed to, “I feel angry because that person is radiating anger.”.

If you find yourself absorbing others emotions, you are in fact, empathic, but your skills are bleeding through without firm boundaries.

A simple, easy technique to solidify your personal, sovereign space is as effortless as breathing, we just need to add an intention or a flavor to the breath.

Slow down the breath and start inhaling deep into the abdomen, stretching the tummy open. On the exhale, completely relax and let go, allowing the breath to bleed from the lungs.

Stay in this focus until you feel your body relax and the mind calm (shouldn’t be more than a minute or two). Once you feel the body let go, you are ready for the next step.

The intention is to feel the gravity of you, pulling everything that is you into your bubble, including the space outside the body on the inhale. **WHAT IS MINE, IS MINE**

On the exhale, reverse the feeling. Push out everything that is not you, making it weightless. **WHAT IS YOURS, IS YOURS**

Do not do this aggressively, or with anger. Make it as gentle as possible, simply stating facts, because what is mine is mine and what is yours is yours

Do this whenever you feel the buzz of the crowd push in, or when you feel someone thinking about you, holding negative feelings, or when you feel intense emotion radiating from someone.

Empathic abilities are just like any other skill. Trainable.

Enjoy your Jedi training

ERIC RAINES: “Energy Transference”

Let’s go a bit deeper.

Your friend has an etheric parasite whipping them into an energetic frenzy and forcing the base programs of the body to be fight-or-flight.

You notice rapid eye movement, extreme agitation, shallow chest breathing and tunnel vision/locking in on the problem.

It is almost as if you feel a storm of invisible pressure and uncomfortability swirling in front of you as they are talking.

The more you listen, the more your friends words pave the path directly to the sensation they are experiencing and you suddenly start to feel it as well.

The mechanics here are that the word level of operation is purely brain based, yet the emotions being felt are frequency/resonance based. As they feel these energies more intensely, they expand the field of emotional energy around them and with their focus on you, this heavy emotional sludge starts to find a direction and an object to flow to. You.

I go into much greater detail in how this works physically, emotionally and energetically in “The Etheric Entity Superhighway” found here.

Any old triggers or traumas you have from the past can react to this influx of heavy, negative emotional energy and suddenly there is resonance bouncing back and forth between both of you, becoming stronger and stronger as it builds.

The deeper you feel this energy, the heavier the connection gets, until suddenly the etheric parasite has a dense enough bridge to travel through in order to start infecting you.

This is how easy it is to be stuck inside of the words. It happens fairly often to anyone paying attention.

So what do we do if we are in this situation?

First off, smile. This simple act shows your body that the base program you want operating is joy, happiness and excitement.

Inhale deep into your body, feeling the act of the smile on the face beginning to pull deep into the body, warming and softening like a big wave of warmth, relaxing anything it touches. If you breathe with this intention for 10-15 breaths, you will create a high vibration emotional field that is akin to sunlight, while the nasty energy you’ve been avoiding from your friend is akin to shadow.

This act will make you feel joyful and light. Turn it up. Make that sensation stronger by flexing your will and push it out of the body on the exhale, making a warm, smiling bubble around you.

Not only will dense energy dissolve when coming into contact with this field, often time by the time your friend is done talking, they will be feeling much better, simply because they are not paying attention to the Language of Light levels you were speaking underneath their words.

The most important part is to have fun!!

Enjoy ❤️

SIMON SEGAL: “Tired Of Being A Negativity Sponge? What You Need To Know To Reclaim Your Energy And Prevent Energy Infiltration”

Everything has a vibration — smells, sounds, colors, objects, animals, people. We are in a continual energetic cycle of communication with everything around us, and what we let to affect us is what we become.

And as much as we have the power to affect the world around us with our energy, sometimes we seemingly lose that ability because our vibration becomes lowered and weaker than the surrounding sources.

In this lowered state, we become negativity sponges. Everybody is looking for a place to dump their negativity because it’s very hard to deal with. And when you become an energy dumpster… well, I don’t have to say too much about it — you are well aware what happens.

The sad truth is that we often choose to lower our vibration for all the wrong purpose. I’m not talking about going against our innate goodness (that is self-explanatory). I am talking about destroying our shield out of goodness.

Although it’s always important to lower your shield when you want to connect with people, we often go a step too far, compromising our energy, and ending up in a messed up energetic state.

So, here’s how to know what is that one step too far and how you can reclaim your vibration.

1. Avoid connecting with people through negative emotion

It may seem like an unavoidable scenario: your friend feels sad, and you match emotions to connect with them — to make them some kind of consolation-company. This way, we even our vibration with theirs to be on the same wavelength, and we thus lower our vibration.

Some may argue that this is very normal and expected from those who are close to you. I’d argue against it, though. It’s true that misery likes company, but this kind of company will never help anyone out.

If you truly hold that person dear, you should offer them a higher vibration so that they can get out of that lowered state. This way, you not only help them, but you also help yourself by not getting down in the dumps. In the end, how can you help someone out if you start suffering from the same problem as them?

2. Some things are not your responsibility — and they shouldn’t be

We all face challenges that are set there to make us grow. These challenges may often feel negative and almost impossible to handle. However, the worst you can do for them is take their responsibility upon yourself.

We often start feeling as if we are supposed to fix other people’s problems simply because they complained about how difficult they were for them. Other times, when we are asked to help, we decide to take one step further and start doing the things they are supposed to and can do.

However, you shouldn’t forget that we all carry our own baggage and we are responsible for it more than for the baggage of others. Giving help doesn’t mean grabbing their bags and pulling them with our teeth because our hands are already full.

No matter how ready you feel to do this, it doesn’t do the other person any good because they won’t learn anything from that challenge — they won’t grow. The better option is to encourage them to use their knowledge and power and face the challenge because they are readier for it than you can imagine.

Nobody needs a problem-solver. We just sometimes need a little push and some encouragement.

3. Substitute compassion for sympathy

Sympathy is a poison. Many people don’t understand this and find me cold-hearted when I say this, although I know how much love I have for this world. And why is it a poison? Because it leads nowhere but in the worst direction.

Sympathy means that you feel sorry for someone’s struggle, and when you feel sorry for them, it means that you don’t believe they are capable of coping with that challenge. Why would you think that? Our ability to tackle the most difficult of challenges is something we are born with.

So, why underestimate the person by feeling sorry for them? Compassion is a much more evolved approach that lets you understand their struggle, accept their position, and empower them (if you can) to overcome the obstacles.

You need to have more trust in the people you love — you need to trust their ability, that requires a simple spark of love and understanding to come to the surface. Compassion is a force that promotes growth and bonding — sympathy is a force that destroys the person before they were given the chance to fight.

4. Don’t be so sure that you know better

A person’s life is such a complex thing that you cannot possibly imagine everything that makes that complexity. So are life situations, in which everyone has their smart opinion — until they are faced with one too.

I have never asked for a piece of someone else’s mind on things that are happening to me. Do you know why? It takes a lot more than words for me to explain everything that is part of that problem, and I don’t see why this would be anything different from you or the next person.

And no matter how much you know about someone’s problem, they will always know one thing more. Which means, no matter how good your advice is, no matter how better you think you know — your advice will most often be a dead end for them.

Why a dead end? Because they didn’t act the way they would and listened to you. Being true to yourself and to your nature is the most important thing. Every mistake I have made because it was my decision has been better than the seemingly ‘best things’ I’ve done under other people’s instruction.

So, no, you can’t know better. Allow the person to act as they naturally would.

5. Never take sides

Oftentimes people we know get into a quarrel and try to put is in the middle by making us choose sides. They try to achieve dominance in numbers and don’t really care about your opinion, which can be felt clearly.

In most of the scenarios, you simply want to be objective and rational, so as to help your, say, friends, to overcome the communication problem and make up.

However, bias, pressure, and thinking that we know it all make us jump in the middle and become bombarded by two clashing sources of negative energy. In the end, you don’t help in any way and end up feeling drained and guilty that you stepped in, in the first place.

And really, why should you take sides in a problem that isn’t yours? Instead of choosing the sides of the story, you should embrace them and accept that people need to solve their differences without your meddling.

6. Never become a people pleaser (and if you are, start saying NO)

I have yet to learn to say NO to some situations, as all of us empaths have that people-pleasing gene that is screwing us over. But really, putting others in front of you may feel rewarding and selfless, although it’s actually ridiculous  and those others usually know it.

If everyone acted this way, we would live in a Utopia, I suppose. The truth, though, is that it’s impossible because we were simply born in our own skin, not that of the others — which means we need to start from ourselves.

Putting others before yourself and giving your energy away like you won it off in a casino is a self-betrayal that people won’t appreciate in you, no matter how much you hope that you’ll be appreciated for it.

A better option is to always ask yourself: ‘Can that person do that themselves?’ ‘Can that person wait?’ ‘Do I have to do something related to my life first?’ Even mothers shouldn’t bend to every of their children’s ideas and wishes, right? Why should you?

7. Mind your own business

It’s our eternal pain to learn what others think of us. Many have started revolving their lives around other people’s thoughts and opinions of them. It’s saddening and sickening, really.

I have the reputation of a ‘cold,’ ‘reserved,’ ‘arrogant,’ and whatnot person because I keep my healthy distance and don’t allow people to gobble up my life force and personality. And you know what? I don’t really care. In fact, I’m glad.

Everybody knows me for who I am, and I have never thought twice before saying the things I mean and standing up for myself because I don’t expect anyone else to do it for me.

I know I have an unlimited source of love for this world — but sometimes naughtiness can’t be rewarded with candy, right? Unless it’s cute, I suppose!

The most important thing is that you can’t define your life on the basis of other people’s opinions and thoughts about you. Those who like to judge you for who you are can freely do it, and you can freely not give an f*, because in the end: THAT’S YOU AND YOU SHOULDN’T CHANGE YOURSELF BECAUSE OF ANYONE’S OPINION.

Reclaim your identity, because if you lose it, nobody will be there to find it and bring it back to you. By reclaiming your identity, you reclaim your energy. Respect yourself and respect everyone around you, but know your boundaries.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “How To Determine If You Are Have Psychic Abilities — And Also Spot A Scam”

You have probably heard of those people who can suddenly ‘see’ solutions to problems, right when they feel completely relaxed, and when their mind isn’t active at all.

For instance, while you are showering, a vision comes to you all of a sudden about how to solve a problem at your work. This can also be the case while you meditate, think of you, and do yoga.

According to some studies, such practices can change the activity in your brain waves. However, it is evident that there are those who are mode predisposed and can come to such types of details and information than others.

Almost every one of us is a psychic to a certain point in life. A lot of people experience several events which indicate some cases of precognition or telepathy. It probably occurred to them just one or a few times. But, there is also the option that it may occur to them frequently.

A lot of people in the world believe that they possess a psychic power of some kind, such as a sixth sense. They call it a sixth sense, or even intuition, or psychic abilities.

This happens when they sometimes feel things which, even though they are not able to explain, permit them to comprehend other people’s thoughts or solutions completely. However, this doesn’t mean they are able to predict their future or possess magical powers.

But, it merely implies that such people have some special sensitivity which gives them the ability to know others better or predict events. The psychic ability is actually something with which every one of us is born, but usually, we tend to lose it due to the environments in which we develop or personal conditions too. A better thing for us would be to understand the symptoms of awakening.

Sixth sense or psychic abilities

Psychic individuals have the ability to perceive feelings, information, and energy around other individuals, situations or personal relationships.

Psychics have the ability to read other people’s minds, as they can understand the feelings and energy around those people.

Being psychic means being intuitive; this is often based on feelings instead of on the individual’s rational thinking. Also, it happens frequently.

Common predictions

Almost every one of us has sometimes experienced the feeling that a certain thing is going to happen before it actually happens. This shows us that our psychic part exists.

Predicting something about our future may occur spontaneously, and such predictions will show us the connection which we have with our environment of which we are not even aware.

What are the qualities of psychic individuals?

Every one of us has some type of psychic ability, but some are more reluctant when it comes to having their mind open in that regard. The brain’s left part is connected with logic, with the rational, with analyzing situations, concentration, and even objective ideas.

When we use our right part more, our personality is going to be different too. On that side, for instance, some people can feel comfortable when it comes to predicting things.

Empathy is one significant aspect of psychics and having the ability to understand other people’s feelings. With the right brain power, this is much easier, as it is connected with a chance, intuition, or global and subjective thinking. Hence, the qualities of a psychic will depend on temperament, tastes, and way of being.

The negative aspects of psychic abilities

Every one of us would sometimes like to receive help, in order to understand some complicated situations or predict things.

When it comes to this, a psychic can be a really interesting, understandable and empathetic friend; however, psychic abilities also have their disadvantages.

One of them is being influenced by some negative feelings like depression and anger. They can also feel tired and overwhelmed when they are in light-filled, crowded or noisy places, as a result of the huge amount of energy which flows around.

In order to reduce those negative energies, a psychic can consult a professional paranormal practitioner. He or she has to be really careful of scams too. How can we recognize scammers?

Most of them are just like bugs. This means that they take full advantage of our vulnerability in order to ensure that we are able to think clearly. We should not let some negative emotions to blind us to reason.

Scammers are going to do everything they can in order to deceive other people. Recognizing scams will give us the chance to avoid further problems and can even deepen our spiritual capacities without any disturbances which are going to keep us away from our spiritual path.
