Bet you can use as much protection and cleansing as you can get these days. Times are wild and I think it's best to keep the transformational component in mind: it's not always going to be like this (just as Yin and Yang each evolve into the other). In fact, there's all sorts of opportunity to choose, move toward and enact our collective future.
What looks good to you?
Keep these techniques handy in your energetic toolkit.
Two Cleansing and Protection Techniques
1. Glowing Cocoon
Inhaling all ambient heavenly energies and influences, bring them deep into the central core of your being, feeling them glow and shine like the sun. Fill yourself completely with these vital energies.
Let you exhale return, moving directly out from this deep core in all directions (front, back, top, bottom, side-to-side), out through your whole being and energy field, like the sun's rays. Sweep away that which is no longer needed and that which instinctively you know is not yours. Breath moves through you like the first day windows are opened in Spring, refreshing and cleansing. With each breath cycle, cleanse all nooks and crannies, filling the newly-opened spaces with these vital energies.
Using the same basic technique as Cleansing breathing meditation, inhale Golden Light (some people use brilliant White Light) as the ambient heavenly energy, letting it fill your internal environment in all directions.
With each exhale, let the Light steam into your aura, into your personal electromagnetic bio-field, filling that space in the same way, like an embracing cocoon. Continue filling inside and outside with this Light until you are filled up and impermeable!
This next one may be used in a couple different ways.
The basic idea is imagining an umbrella or canopy over your head. It can travel with you!
Imagine your overhead canopy functions in the way we commony use an umbrella, as protection from outside influences. You are underneath, in a protected and clear space, free from any adverse influences.
Imagine the canopy/umbrella is raining down, like a shower, into and through the space underneath. This shower washes the space with cleansing energies, rinsing away whatever's no longer needed or is not yours. The shower may also rinse protective energies into this same space, like you are wrapped in a protecive coat.
What happens to all the “stuff” that's swept and washed away?
There's one more aspect to getting clean and protected. You can imagine whatever is discharged and drained off is sent back to Source to be remade. Think recycling rather than littering! Send this “stuff” back to Source through the elements; they will take care of the transformation. Remember, Source is within all the elements (as it is within all of us).
When you have finished with whichever method you've chosen, relax your attention and take a few easy breaths as you gradually return to the here and now. Transition gently and know this cleansing and protective exercise stays with you.
