Protection From Negativity For An Intuitive Abundant Woman

Many experts claim that intuitive people are also psychic, to a degree – using that 6th sense to know things or make decisions. As such, many intuitive people can also be susceptible to energies from other sources, such as other people.

A NEGATIVE ENERGY ENDURED

I have had an issue for years when it came to being affected by and absorbing the energies of other people. In fact, the worst case for me was a very close relative. It took me years to understand why, after spending time in his presence, I would become upset, confused, frustrated and even negative myself. It would take a very long time for me to return to my normal, more positive self.

After our last confrontation, in which he treated me worse than his poor dog he kept chained to a tree and would not explain his reason, I realized I needed to stay away from him, but didn’t really understand why. I just knew I felt better when I wasn’t around him. It took me quite awhile to also realize I needed to forgive him for his extremely negative actions, as my anger and frustration were eating away at my soul. I was losing any spiritual abundance I had. It was affecting my meditations, peaceful mind and heart, and even other relationships.

REALIZING THE PROBLEM & FINDING SOLUTIONS

It wasn’t until just a few months back, after doing research on intuitives, psychics, empaths and sensitives, that I was able to realize what the real issue was that was happening. I was absorbing his negative energy and it was severely affecting me. Then my real research began on how to protect myself from these energies, because they could also affect me from a distance.

Do you:

  • sometimes walk into a room and feel a bad “vibe” or feel exhausted in a crowd?
  • feel easily hurt at times?
  • get told by people that you’re too sensitive?
  • avoid conscious recognition of the emotional basis of an act or feeling by substituting a superficially plausible explanation?
  • sense negative emotions evoked by other people and sometimes don’t know if it’s coming from them or you?
  • get nervous and agitated around hyperactive people?
  • need to be alone to re-energize?
  • feel, at times, as if you’ve lost your own identity or are suffocating in an intimate relationship?
  • listen well to others and give generously of yourself?

If so, in all likelihood, you are an intuitive, empath, sensitive or psychic, and need to know how to protect yourself in order to continue your positive journey toward a life as an abundant woman.

TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS

Here are a few tips, which I have found helpful, on how to protect yourself from negativity.

Keep at least 20 to 30 feet away from any negative person, called an “emotional vampire” by Dr. Judith Orloff. (Judith Orloff, MD, Are you an empath?, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/judith-orloff-md/are-you-an-emotional-empa_b_697483.html). Don’t be concerned if you feel you may be offending someone. This is for your emotional and psychic protection. Dr. Judith Orloff has some amazing programs, books and online courses on intuition, positive energy and empowerment!Positive Energy & Emotional Freedom

Clean negativity from you. Brush your head, arms and body with your hands as if wiping off dirt or dust. Put your hands on your solar plexus (your emotional center). Imagine a clean white light emanating from your hands into your solar plexus to clean out any negativity that may have found its way in.

Envelope yourself in a protective shield when around suspect people. Visualize your body being enveloped in a white light that blocks the negativity but allows positive energy to be absorbed.

Center yourself with deep breaths. As you breathe in, feel positive, calming energy entering into your lungs. As you breathe out, see the negative energy leaving your body as a dark mist or fog.

Manage your emotions. Have a safe, private and natural space in your home where you can go for meditation and centering to rejuvenate, especially if there are family members in the home whose emotions you have been absorbing.

Spend time with positive people. Encourage and cultivate friendships with people who have positive energies. Spending time with these people can help you strengthen your own positive energies, which will help negate any negative energies you find yourself absorbing.

These exercises are not something that will alleviate your issues with negative energy right away. They must be practiced on a regular basis for you to strengthen your own energies and protection.

So, as they say, practice makes perfect. Be sure to check out Dr. Judith Orloff’s programs, books and online courses. They are fascinating, uplifting and so very helpful! I wish you the best in your endeavors and would love to hear from you with any other tips or helpful practices you use to keep your energies positive and your soul happy!

Living Abundantly by Giving Abundantly

Far too many people pursuing a life of abundance through the Law of Attraction are doing so for purely selfish reasons.  I will be the first to admit, I began this journey with the LOA largely because of what I could get out of it.  Although I have always wanted to be able to help others, I sought a life of abundance to fill a void. My largest concern was how to make my life more comfortable; mainly, so I could find more enjoyment and fulfillment relationally and materialistically.  I didn’t completely ignore the spiritual aspects of it all, but it was not anywhere near the top of my list.

As I began this new journey though, I was forced to look inward to find the true source of discontent. That’s when I realized the times I was happiest and most fulfilled were the times I knew I had helped others in pursuing their lives of fulfillment. This is not the type of help in which one loses themselves and their sense of self in the process, but of giving that of which they have an abundance. In return, even more abundance is returned.

Giving of Yourself Abundantly

Giving abundantly can take many forms, from the smallest gesture to the largest commitment.  Giving of yourself and what you have brings a glow to your heart.

Glowing Heart

Glowing Heart

Did you smile and thank the cashier and bagger at the grocery?  Did you allow the car in the next lane to merge in front of you?   When was the last time you visited a retirement home, or have you ever?  Have you considered donating time to Meals on Wheels?  If you belong to a church, are you active in their charitable events?  Do you donate clothes or furniture, or do you find it easier to set it all out with the trash pick-up?

I do not have the ability to drive anywhere at any time, but I found I could give my support through an online prayer group.  Even though I am not a religious person, it matters not.  I believe there is a higher power.  Call it God, The Divine, The Universe…prayers, thoughts and intentions are sent, received and answered. There are over 100,000 members in this prayer group.  Can you imagine the effect those prayers have?  Reading some of the messages of thanks brings tears to my eyes.

It Doesn’t Take Much Money to Make a Difference

When I began donating, I couldn’t afford much.  I found that with a few dollars, I could put a Thanksgiving dinner on a family’s table.  I could help feed the homeless that went to a church or shelter for a hot meal on a cold night.

Have you donated money to any charities – international, national or local?  Do you drop your extra change in the Salvation Army bucket during the holidays?  Do you buy those little flags from the AmVets table when it is set up outside the grocery store?  How about supporting the Red Cross when disaster strikes…or before is even better.   There are SO many legitimate charities, from local to international.  Chose one or two, if that’s all you can afford, more if you can do so.  Your heart will truly glow, knowing you are doing what you can to help those less fortunate than you.

Any sort of giving is the perfect way to make you more grateful for what you have.  It will truly make you feel abundant.  And, when giving unconditionally starts to bring more abundance into your life as a way of thanking you, share more.  The cycle has begun, and you will surely be a better, more abundant woman for the giving of yourself and what you have to share.

What have you shared, contributed or donated lately?  Didn’t it make you feel wonderful about doing so?  Share you stories. I would love to read them.

As I Dream of a Life of Abundance

By Margot Huff – Another day…another dream! I just woke from a nap. Lo’ and behold!  I remember another dream of abundance I have had, which doesn’t happen often…at least not until recently. Maybe, it’s because of my concentration on my ideal of abundance and what it means to me.

What type of Abundance do You Dream of?

Many of us have been engaging in a tremendous amount of concentration on abundance in the past few years; whether it’s dreams, meditation or hypnosis. What does it mean to each of us? For some, it has to do with spiritual abundance; for others, it means financial; And yet, others concentrate on abundant health or relationships. I would dream, concentrate on and wish for an abundant life which encompasses all aspects of life – spiritual, financial, health, relationships.

Spiritual Abundance

Prayer

Prayer

Is there a spiritual emptiness inside of you that you just can’t seem fill? Is there something missing in your relationship with God, Spirit, the Universe?  If you can see yourself right now in any of this, just know these feelings are not unique to you.  These feelings are experienced by most, if not all of us, at one time or another. Taking some time each day to quiet your mind will help tremendously in this area. And always, always remember to be grateful for your life. The more you are grateful, the more you’ll attract in your life for which to be grateful.

Financial Abundance

Money

Money

Who doesn’t want to earn enough money to have at least the creature comforts in life? Who doesn’t want to earn much more? I do! I love going away for long weekends, and would like to do it more often.  I would love to have a mountain home and a beach home. I love the thought of being able to help family and friends in financial need. I would love to be able to donate a significant amount of money to charities of my choice. No matter your financial status now, always, always remember to be grateful for the money you do have. The more you are grateful, the more you’ll attract ways to earn more money for which to be grateful.

Abundant Health

“Eat healthily, sleep well, breathe deeply, move harmoniously.”   Jean-Pierre Barral

Abundant health is such an important factor in the life of an abundant woman, the lack of which can seriously impact the joy of living…. Need I say more?   This is one aspect of abundance in which I find have especially asked for help from God, Spirit, the Universe.  Having been diagnosed with diabetes, degenerative disc disorder, severe depression, sciatica, chronic tendonitis, fibromyalgia and chronic pain, just to name a few, I was being overmedicated and lived in a fog for a few years. I finally took matters away from the doctors and put them in my own hands. I am happy to say I  now have my diabetes under control with diet alone, have weaned myself off of antidepressants, muscle relaxers and four other medications.  Although I may not be the poster child for perfect health, I am feeling better and younger than I have in a  very long time and plan on continuing self improvement until the day I can once again become gainfully employed and give my disability income back to the government.  I am so very grateful for my improved health and disposition. No matter your health situation, be grateful for the positive aspects of being alive and breathing. The more you are grateful, the more good health you’ll attract for which to be grateful.

Abundant Relationships

Relationship

Relationship

After 31 years, I am very fortunate to have a husband who still loves me passionately. I have In-laws who are the best.  I am blessed with good friends and a loving family.  Do not think  it all comes easy.  As anyone with good, strong relationships knows, it takes work and perseverance  to make any relationship work.  And there are always bumps in the road.  To maintain an abundant relationship, it is so very important to acknowledge the positive aspects of the other person, and focus on those more than anything. Everyone has some negative pieces in their personalities.  To recognize them and accept the person as they are is the key component to keeping the relationship strong and thriving.  Remember, as they have negative aspects to their personalities, you also do; and those that love you accept these. So, be grateful for your friends and loved ones. The more you are grateful, the more abundant relationships you will attract into your life for which to be grateful.

Blessings,

Margot Huff
