Let’s look at some of the ways you can help to dislodge and move emotional energy through your own or your partner’s electromagnetic field:
Smudging with Sage
The Native American practice of smudging with sage has proven to be very helpful in removing negativity from a person’s aura or an area or space. This requires the leaves of a sage plant (or rosemary, cedar, or thyme) to be lit with fire in a heat-safe bowl. The smoke of the smoldering embers is fanned in all direction to cover the person or place to be cleared. You can smudge yourself alone or you and your partner can smudge one another. For more instructions, go to my blog: whosestuffisthis.com and type “smudge with sage” in the search box.
Grounding and Centering
Including a walk in nature or eating a healthy meal, there are many techniques for grounding your energy. The one I like best is a simple visualization.
Imagine a white beam of light coming from the cosmos into the crown of your head, flowing down through your body and aura, touching every atom in your body before extending from the soles of your feet into the very core of the earth. I also see gold sparkles of light cleansing and clearing my aura. Then, visualize the slow-vibrating, nurturing energy of Mother Earth coming into your feet and up your legs, merging with the cosmic energy in your body and aura before flowing upward and out through the crown of your head. Visualize it in full detail for the first dozen or so times you try this. Once you are familiar with how this feels and works, your subconscious may begin the process automatically whenever you think of grounding and centering.
Adjusting Aura Size
When the electromagnetic field around your body gets too large and you are doing nothing to fill it with light and love, it can become cluttered with all kinds of mental and emotional energy from those around you. After you ground and center, visualize your clean, clear aura (an egg-shaped bubble around your body) slowing drawing in closer to your body. Once you become aware of how it feels to have your aura at about two to two and a half feet (arm’s length) from your body, you will notice when it has roamed into other people’s territory.
Sending Love and Light to Your Partner
Rather than taking on the energy of another person, offer compassion without paying a personal price. Find your heart center and feel the love that is there. Expand it while imagining a ray of pink or green light extending from your heart and a ray of purple or white light shining from your third eye (6th chakra located between your eyebrows). Direct these beams of light toward your partner and filling his/her subtle bodies and physical body. You can do this with anyone who needs healing. This allows you to send rays of healing and loving light to the afflicted person without getting entangled with their mental and emotional issues. Refuse to allow your emotions to engage in feeling what that person is feeling. This is not being hard-hearted; it is using the mental power of your third eye as an intuitive tool rather than using your body and emotions as a punching bag. The third eye resides in a higher dimension. Therefore, you are not using your limited human faculties to do the work of transmutation.
St. Germaine’s Flame of Transmutation
Emotions, feelings, and even illnesses are energetic imprints to which an empath is highly sensitive. Everything is energy. It cannot be destroyed, but it can be changed or transmuted. Together or individually you can call upon ascended master Saint Germaine and his violet flame of transmutation to lift an energetic burden and convert the detrimental energy into beneficial energy.
I visualize detrimental energy being formed into a ball and lifted into the heavens where it is “zapped” by the violet flame of St. Germaine. This flame bursts the energy ball into millions of golden fragments representing love, light, wisdom, peace, joy, and other positive emotions and then falling like a gentle golden snow upon the earth, myself, and the person who was relieved of this energetic burden.
These are very easy exercises, but with diligent practice, they can make a world of difference in your life and relationship.
To the empath, I say: begin these exercises as soon as you realize you are picking up energy that does not belong to you.
To the non-empath partner of an empath, I say thank you for reminding us of our spiritual role and right use of this gift. Your help in serving as a non-judgmental observing guardian is greatly beneficial. However, it does not exempt the empath from doing his/her part in keeping his/her own energy field clear.
