Clearing Out Negative Energies: Quick & Easy!

Over the years, I've worked with different tools and techniques to eliminate negative, sticky energy out of my field or space. But in the last couple years I've hit on what is for me the simplest, easiest way to energetically take out the trash.

Whether it has collected there because of psychic intrusion, psychic attack, empath-ing things that I didn't get rid of later, or just walking through energy cow pies... it doesn't matter. 

All these many and varied versions of ick collect in our personal field or space (or aura, if you like).

They can drag us down and cause us to feel drained and tired. They can and do affect our emotions and thoughts. 

Some people are more energy sensitive than others and seem affected more profoundly by it. But that doesn't mean they are necessarily conscious of the energy they are being affected by. It's more that they have a sensitivity in their energy system which responds.  

I happen to have one of those sensitive energy systems and bodies. Perhaps it's partly because I'm also an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) that this shows up this way for me. And there's nothing vainglorious about that "being sensitive to energy" thing either! Every "gift" has two sides... the front of the hand and the back of the hand. And that back of the hand can smack you around sometimes. 


Turns out, it's just good field management to clean it out periodically. So, I share here my very best and easiest tool for doing just that.

Deconstructing Boundaries: When Fences Become Walls

I'm all about the boundary-setting. I think it's a damn fine idea to draw lines that keep you feeling good in your world. They keep the bad, distracting, yucky stuff out, and create space for all the good stuff you want to cultivate. Not that I draw them perfectly (meh - who does?), but I am definitely willing to draw them.

But... I'm questioning my usual approach to them right now.

I received some energy healing yesterday from the amazing Jo Dunning, and I woke up today feeling really differently (and a little uncomfortable) about how I've been doing this whole boundaries thing in my world.

What My Highly Sensitive Dog Taught Me About Stress

Ok, so you know about Highly Sensitive People, right? If not, check out Elaine Aron's work. It's a revelation! She has a nifty self-test there, too, to help you assess yourself or a child.

The nitty gritty, though, is that the trait of High Sensitivity occurs in about 15-20% of the human AND animal populations. It is inborn and wired in. It creates its own set of challenges, gifts, and opportunities. And, one of the key points to understand is that it is natural and adaptive in the population -- not a defect, even if our present day culture at large kind of sees it that way.

Well, not only am I a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP for short), I also seem to attract Highly Sensitive Animals as pets!

My standard poodle, Bellah, is definitely one. And, while poodles are known to be finely tuned, highly intelligent beings, not all poodles are quite in this category of sensitivity. He is an absolutely amazing dog.

One of his biggest gifts to me has been to mirror my own needs back to me and make them more conscious. As I figure out how to care for him, I learn better how to care for myself, too.

Most recently, he's given me a lesson in the critical importance of helping the body handle stress -- especially for the Highly Sensitive Being.
