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.

HIGHER PERSPECTIVES: “The Secret Powers Of Cats”

Cats may be famous on the internet for being funny and adorable, but there may be a deeper reason why we feel an inordinate fondness for felines.

What if cats serve not only as objects of our affection, but also as protectors of our home?

Guard dogs may be effective at keeping away unwanted intruders, but cats fulfill a far more important purpose of protecting the home from a different kind of uninvited houseguest.

Cats and Negative Energy

Recall a time when you noticed your cat staring tensely towards a seemingly empty space or spending a suspicious amount of time around one particular spot in the house.

It’s likely that your cat is sensitive to a concentrated amount of negative energy and is attempting to protect you and your home from possible infiltration by evil spirits and ghosts.

This is because cats bear a uniquely powerful aura, also known as astral force, that works to repel negative energy.

It is possible that this negative energy remains left over from some traumatic experience in the past before you came to live in the home, or the entity could come from outside the home and try to force its way in.

The cat serves as a valuable line of defense for you and your loved ones by attempting to trap the evil spirit in its powerful energy field and lead it out of the house.

Be sure not to disturb your cat if you notice that it is purposefully wandering around your house.

Cats are skilled at discerning the intentions of astral entities and could be following some source of negative energy in the attempt to ambush it and remove it from your immediate environment if it senses a threatening aura.

Russians used to allow a cat to enter a house first before they moved in due to its extraordinarily strong aura.

In that way, the cat could take immediate action in warding away any excess negative energy left behind from previous inhabitants while also providing powerful positive energy if the house was new or had merely neutral energy.

Ways to Remove Heavy Negative Energy

There are ways that you can assist your cat in removing evil spirits and ghosts from your home.

In the case that your cat takes interest in a certain spot in the house, you can read a prayer and perform a cleansing ritual of your choice.

Alternatively, you can burn some White Sage at the spot to eliminate any unwanted energy, as the smoke will attach itself to heavy negative energy and convert it back into light energy.

You can also simply rub fresh White Sage leaves between your thumbs and forefingers, as this can also be effective way to release the plant’s cleansing energy.

You can notice later if your cat continues to return to that spot with any regularity or if the cleansing ritual succeeded in burning away the negative energy.

Protection from Curses and Evil Eyes

Cats also work to protect you and the house from any curses or evil eyes.

Like talismans and necklaces worn in many cultures around the world to protect the wearer from evil eyes, you must be holding your cat for it to be effective in shielding you from the malevolent thoughts of others.

The correct way to hold your cat to enjoy the full power of its force field is to use your left hand to gently stroke its neck while simultaneously using your right hand to stroke across its tail.

This enables you to keep in full contact with the cat and harness the maximum amount of available protective energy.

Cats can also fulfill an important function for their masters through their healing powers.

If you are suffering from serious emotional stress, simply lying down and stroking your cat can go a long way in releasing you from the burden of the stress.

Protection from Geopathogenic Zones

Cats can provide energy protection if you happen to have the misfortune of living in a Geopathogenic Zone.

Geopathogenic Zones are so named because they are locations that adversely affect the health of a person living in them for extended periods of time.

In such locations, there is a dense and steady flow of negative energy for cats to combat.

The Specialties of Cats of Different Colors

All cats provide the protective healing energies described above, although there is some variation between the benefits they may bestow upon their owners.

Read the following description of the specialties of each type of cat and, if in the need of a particular kind of benefit or healing energy, choose the one most suitable for your situation.

Black Cats

They provide the most comprehensive magical protection against occult powers and curses. These cats are most adept at nullifying powerful negative energy that may be dwelling inside a home.

Calico Cats

They combine the benefits of black, white and red cats and provides your home with significant protection from harm. These three-colored cats are often associated with good luck and prosperity.

Blue-Gray Cats

They exert calming influences of emotional stability and bring joy and love to the lives of their owners. The tranquil energy embodied in such cats is often associated with happiness and good luck.

Colorpoint Siamese Cats

They are the most playful breed of cat and help bring fame and success to their owners, as well benefit them with a longer life.

Two-Tone Cats

They carry with them energy that enhances wisdom and common sense.

Tortoiseshell Cats

They specialize in their healing powers and benefit from clairvoyance. This color pattern usually only appears in female cats, giving them a pure energy.

Golden Cats

They are often associated with ancient wisdom due to their status as objects to be revered in temples. They also embody solar energy and grace.

Tabby Cats

They lighten the mood of an environment and provide a buzz of humor and entertainment.

No matter which type of cat you choose, you can be sure to enjoy the benefits from its powerful aura and sensitivity to the presence of evil spirits.

MICHELLE WALLING: “Important Information About Reiki”

One of the first things a person wants to do after their awakening is to begin to serve others. Many of the awakened people on the planet are natural healers and learn a method of energy manipulation called Reiki. While this form of healing can be powerful, it can also be detrimental to the recipient if the healer is not on the level of understanding and guidance of a higher level.

Reiki is a form of energy healing where the “universal energy” is passed through the hands of the healer to the recipient. The main benefit of such energy seems to be receiving energy when energy is lacking to a specific area. The only reason one would need to receive universal energy from another is if they have not remembered how to connect to the source of universal energy within themselves, usually due to low vibration energy blocks. It is human nature to want to help another feel better so that they can perhaps then be able to move forward and connect to their own energetic force.

In order for safe Reiki to be administered, there are a few things you should consider before either giving or receiving Reiki.

First, the Reiki healer should be able to either see the recipient’s energy field or be completely guided by their higher self or healing team. How is it possible for someone to be able to give the correct frequency of energy to the right area if one cannot “see” the energy field? It could be detrimental to the recipient to have too much energy in one place. Very rarely, individuals serve as vessels for teams of higher beings to work through and they simply move their consciousness out of the way and let the teams take control of the physical body and perform the healing. These types of healers will stand out in the alternative community as miracle workers and thus will have a proven track record. Otherwise, be wary of someone who simply becomes certified to give energy but has no way to gauge where it needs to go or what frequency or color it needs to be.

Second, the Reiki healer needs to have done healing and clearing on themselves. If a person does not know their Reiki healer well, they have no idea of who or what is in their energy field. Until hitchhikers, astral beings, and fear are dissipated by a person themselves, they should not be trying to heal another person. It is not a good idea to receive Reiki from someone who is just in the beginning phases of their own healing and awakening process. Otherwise, energy healers can inadvertently pass these energies or entities around like a ghostly virus.

Third, if a person is a hands on healer, they need to be clearing any negative energy from themselves before laying their hands on another person. Until protocols of protection are learned, a Reiki healer should not touch another person, especially if they are an open empath. Of course, that is how many people get healed and it is a wonderful thing for a person to get healed by someone when they couldn’t clear the energy blockage themselves. But this is hard on the healer to take on the energy and then to have to take the time and energy to clear themselves. Sometimes the healer gets too overwhelmed with energy that they have inadvertently taken on and they can get sick or “burned out” as the body gets fried.

Fourth, as we are moving closer and closer to connecting with a greater consciousness and self-healing understanding, it is not a good idea to continue enabling a person to rely on others to give them energy. All souled humans have the ability to remove the blockages that re-establish the connection to the same universal source. That is the real goal of someone who is on the ascension path, and one who continually seeks that energy outside of themselves is bypassing the work themselves will continue to struggle until they begin the path of self-healing.

While it is noble to want to be in service to others as a healer, it could also be harming others more than helping if the above topics are not considered. The very best way a person can help another is to work on themselves first. Some people take a fast track and can work on their issues within a year and some take decades. There comes a time in a truly balanced and healed individual where they catapult themselves into a higher timeline. Only then are they truly connected with their higher self and guides who tell them exactly what their mission is. If that mission happens to be healing, the protocol and method for doing that healing will be shown to them and the healing guides will always be there to assist on every session. This is the kind of Reiki healer one would want to be, and this is the kind of healing that one would want to receive.

In summary, the very best Reiki healers are “seers”, people who have a direct connection or open telephone line to their healing guides, or people that know how to step out of the way and let their healing guides work through their body. If you have recently received Reiki healing from someone and you got sick or feel worse from that session, try clearing by taking a sea salt bath and calling on your own healing team to remove any energies you may have picked up. Grounding with Earth and imagining that all that is not yours be pushed out of you feet into the planet for transmutation is also another good method. Ultimately we all end up making a few mistakes on our journey so that we realize how to heal ourselves.

As we continue to collectively raise our consciousness and understanding of frequencies and energy, it is important to refine each area in the metaphysical and spiritual arena. We have to become more aware and responsible for our own actions, where we are placing our energy, and what energies we are taking on from others. Clearing and healing yourself automatically affects everyone who is connected to you or that comes into your energy field. This has proven to be the most effective and accelerated way to help others collective ascend in frequency. While Reiki should not be necessarily ruled out in the higher consciousness protocols, the understanding and mastering of energy postulates that we can shift energy on a quantum level through association rather than a physical level.

NEZEL PADAYHAG: “5 Bad Habits That Weaken Your Energy Field And Positive Habits To Replace Them With”

Your energy field or the electromagnetic energy field that surrounds you depends much on your health and lifestyle.

It reflects your personal energy and affects your ability to connect with others. A healthy energy field is a good indicator of living the life you want.

If it’s weak, you will lack motivation and vitality for making your life better, personally and professionally. A weakened energy field also makes you more susceptible to negativity.

While there are scientific explanations behind the feelings of fatigue, in most cases it still comes down to one important thing, your energy has weakened because of bad habits.

These habits might vary, from wrong diets and bad sleeping patterns to stress, activities that harm your health, even not following your purpose.

Weakened energy field is the symptom of some underlying problem, it is an indicator that something in your lifestyle is draining your energy and disrupting your energy flow.

You fail to see the harm done because it happens gradually and on a daily basis. When you notice the difference your energy field has already weakened.

To protect your energy field you need to know the things that weaken it, as well as the ways to strengthen it.

It all comes down to how you structurize your lifestyle and what kind of habits you integrate in it. Here are some bad habits you should avoid and replace with positive ones.

5 Bad Habits That Weaken Your Energy And What To Do Instead:

1. Addiction to social media.

Even though there are good and inspirational things that you see on social media, it is still outnumbered by the negative ones. If you’re not aware, you’re likely to be influenced by the negativity that you get from there. The amount of time and energy spent in pointless internet browsing also diminishes your energy.

What to do instead: Spend more time with people who uplift your energy.

There are people who simply good for your energy. Instead of being sucked into social media feeds, meet up with someone who uplifts your energy. Speak with them, converse on topics both of you are passionate about, talk about things that inspire you.

2. Poor sleep habits.

Regardless of what you do in the wee hours of the night, not having enough sleep is not good for your body. Your mind and body need adequate rest to be able to function well for the next day. A good sleep is a wise investment to gain more for the following day.

What to do instead: Have an exercise regimen.

Get your body moving. Engaging in physical activities gets your blood circulating and your energy going. Create a habit where you engage yourself physically, like swimming, running, yoga, walking, or any other activities that can sweat you.

3. Staying indoors all the time.

Not getting enough sunshine and fresh air is not good for your energy. The sun, most especially, provides you with warmth and uplifts your energy levels. It promotes the production of vitamins in your body. Staying indoors might make you depressed.

What to do instead: Go for a walk.

Walking has been found to have lots of mental and physical benefits. Aside from improving your mood and getting fresh air, walking is also the best way to get sunshine on your skin. The sun’s energy not only gives you a dose of vitamin D but it also purifies your mood.

4. Poor eating habits.

Poor eating habits accompanied by an unhealthy lifestyle is probably the greatest drainer of your energy. Most processed foods make you feel tired and lethargic. Organic and naturally grown foods are packed with natural energy that replenishes what your body loses.

What to do instead: Follow a nutritious diet.

A nutritious diet simply consists of naturally grown food. If it’s possible, grow your own organic veggies and fruits. Eating raw food is also a great way of getting the sun’s energy into your body.

5. Overthinking and stress.

Stress is the biggest enemy of the modern times. We overthink and stress about things daily. This is an addiction we all suffer from. Overthinking and dealing with stressful people every single day is almost inevitable, however, almost. It can be significantly reduced.

What to do instead: Do deep breathing and meditation exercises.

Deep breathing is a quick saver, especially when you’re feeling exhausted. Simply close your eyes, then slowly inhale and exhale deeply. Doing this for at least 5 minutes will calm your mind. A regular meditation is healthy and keeps you connected to your inner being.

Your body is said to be the temple of your soul. When you take good care of it, your soul is likely to shine, and this raises your energy levels. These are simple strategies, but if done on daily basis they can strengthen your energy field and keep negative energies at bay.

ATHENA MELCHIZEDEK: “About Presence, Embodiment And Personal Process”

So much has been written about Presence and Embodiment but very little around the actual personal process that is required to become a fully Present and Embodied being.

In this case when I speak of Presence I am speaking of the integration of the True and Higher SELF that we always ARE without the distortions of wounds, traumas, masks and defenses of the egoic nature that all obscure this from being fully realized.

Presence is not found in the stories of yesterday nor in the “what ifs” of tomorrow.

Presence is the NOW!  Life is happening NOW.  Transmutation is happening right here in the NOW moment.

And what of Embodiment — what does this really mean?

Embodiment is bringing to your conscious awareness every thought, feeling, and sensation — awareness of every energy stream that runs through this miraculous physical body — from moment to moment.

It is having a full awareness and experience of the full Self in the moment while remaining in relationship and having full conscious awareness and contact with another.

This allows a spaciousness to arise in the relational field that can enable the deepening of the process of another.

As we work through our own issues by slowing down our process and becoming aware of the movement of energies within our own bodies, we become aware that our body holds all the answers to all our questions.

It is an infinite fountain of wisdom and knowledge and if we can slow down our process and quiet the mind long enough it will reveal these precious gifts.

In our personal process we are continuously dissolving old paradigms, old images, thoughts and beliefs that have been hardwired into oursystems at the cellular level by our early environmental conditioning, childhood wounds, and misperceptions of reality.

As we dissolve the old belief patterns we are doing nothing less than reforming our neural pathways, literally.

We are creating new ways of being, new ways of seeing, and new ways of perceiving as we undertake the process of allowing more of our Presence to shine through.

This is what “to process” means in this context.

The importance and value of group energy as a reflective mirror should not be underestimated.  It really amplifies and accelerates every piece of work.

Undeniably, groups enable an experience of far wider transferential issues than one-to-one integration work can offer and allow us to experience the possibility of different outcomes immediately thus breaking habitual patterns.

This is because in any group we are attracted to join we will find the exact configuration that represents our next level of refinement.  This will happen whether we are in a formal process group or whether we are just living our lives.  For our energy field will attract in like energy.  This is physics.

When we do this work consciously i.e. we are aware of what is being presented to us and can now see this in our self, we begin the rewiring of the neural pathways of the brain as we are called to a new response to the thought, action, or word that created our original wounding or trauma.

When we do this work in ourselves, it opens up the possibility for others in the group, as we are all connected in the oneness of all life.

Through harmonic resonance and a new conscious awareness, as we raise our frequency, we automatically create the opportunity for others to rise as they see them selves and, particularly their shadow, in the group mirror.

Our very being and presence can present them with a new possibility and opportunity to experience the perceived self differently.  As we transform, so can they.

The implications of this work for the world at large become much greater when we realize that our presence and embodiment affects not only our self but all those with whom we are in contact: friends, family, colleagues, strangers.  We do not have to DO anything.  We simply have to BE.  This is enough.

Once we have cleared and purified the vessel, our very BEING becomes a profound transformative Presence in the world.

Namaste!!!
