Why is Spiritual Protection Necessary?
Many physical and non-physical energies are looking for an energy source to attach to for nourishment in today's world, and if we don't protect ourselves, we may unintentionally pick up entities and energies that get sucked into our auras and drain us, leaving us feeling tired, unmotivated, depressed, and exhausted. It's simpler for these energies to latch into us if our aura is weak or unprotected, and this might have bad consequences in our life.
Understanding Your Aura
Every physical item in our environment is made up of molecules, and every molecule is made up of energy. Auras can be described or explained in a variety of ways, but in general, an aura is an energy field that emerges from all molecules.
As a result, auras can be found all around us, including humans, animals, plants, and even inanimate objects (e.g., crystals, furniture, cars). Auras around living things, on the other hand, are usually simpler to detect and are wider than auras around inanimate objects.
The color, width, and strength of an aura can fluctuate based on the individual and their present attitude or situation. If that person is cheerful and joyous, their aura may be yellow, bright, and strong; yet, if they are sad or unwell, their aura may be brown or gray, weak, dirty, and translucent.
As an example, your aura gets weak when you are under a lot of stress, despair, rage, traumatic event, pain, sickness, or physical injury. Auras can also be weakened by drugs and alcohol, making them accessible to outside energies looking for a source.
Tune in to how you're feeling.
Stressed? Recognize the signals so you can relax more effectively and quickly. Irritability, tension headaches, feeling out of sorts, or simply not feeling like yourself are all symptoms of stress lurking in the background. We all deal with so much during the day that it's easy to overlook these warning signs, but it's critical to do so. You're not a robot. Things irritate you. The first step to protecting your energy and not squandering it on stress is to cultivate an awareness of your emotions.
Set boundaries to conserve energy.
Learn to say “that doesn't work for me right now,” “maybe later,” and “no thanks.” Drawing a line beyond which you can no longer go is a powerful protective mechanism that allows you to manage your energy while keeping the draining affects of other people's expectations at bay. Don't feel bad if you decline. Your requirements are just as significant as anyone else's.
Use mindfulness to limit your exposure to negativity.
It's all about keeping track of your thoughts and intentions. We are what we think we are, so if all you think about is how stressed or tired you are, or how hectic this terrible day is, that's all you'll be. Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of your thoughts and how you speak to yourself, as well as how others' attitudes affect you. Tuning into positivity (inside and out) and away from negativity (inside and out) becomes much easier once you gain this awareness.
Find your happy place.
Then close your eyes and imagine yourself there. It's not a joke! When it comes to preserving your energy, visualizing a place you love, where you feel safe and tranquil, is a powerful tool to use. Perhaps you envision your nice bed, piled high with warm blankets. Maybe it's your favorite hiking trail. One minute of sitting with your eyes closed, breathing deeply, and visualizing that environment in as much sensory detail as possible can completely recharge your batteries.
Be aware of your triggers.
Do you become uneasy when you're under a lot of stress? Obviously, it does. Learn and deal with your triggers to protect your energy from the draining affects of anxiety and stress. If deadlines make you want to curl up into a fetal posture, become an organization maven. Nervous about social situations? Limit your interactions to those that you genuinely enjoy rather than those that you feel obligated to attend. Saying no, no thank you, or pass has a lot of power.
Create a sanctuary.
Create a relaxing environment with your favorite textures, colors, and scents. Make specific locations for your favorite pursuits and set apart time to indulge in them. Take time to indulge in your hobbies or interests, whether they are cooking, crafts, or learning. Knowing you have a beautiful location to return to at the end of a long day will relieve a lot of stress and negativity. It could even be the happy spot you imagine when you take a break.
Clean your physical and mental spaces.
De-cluttering your zones at home, work, and in your mind is an effective strategy to safeguard your energy. When you're surrounded on all sides by physical and emotional issues, it's tough to maintain a stable, grounded mental state. That type of setting encourages disarray, chaos, and tension.
Remove the dross. Get rid of the things (and, yes, people) that aren't serving you well. Donate, un-follow, and un-friend everything from outdated clothes you'll never wear again to anxiety-inducing social media you follow, and especially toxic individuals. Difficult? Sometimes. But it's also well worth it.
Trust your gut.
Are you dealing with someone or something that makes you feel unwell? Listen to your intuition to protect your energy. By observing how you feel after dealing with someone or something, you'll be able to determine who or what isn't beneficial for you. There's a reason if they leave you feeling tired or merely preoccupied and a little overwhelmed. Pay attention to your surroundings and limit your exposure to anything or anyone that makes you feel uneasy.
Build a solid social circle.
People, groups, and activities that make you happy should be prioritized. Just as being around unhappy people drains your energy, being around joyful individuals who make you feel at ease has a beneficial effect.
At work, this could entail looking for employees with whom you connect and finding methods to spend more time with them. Plan lunch or coffee breaks, after-work cocktails, or a weekend get-together. It's lot easier to guard yourself from the affects of individuals who don't leave you feeling energized if you tune in to people who do.
Build a “wall.
Creating a barrier to protect yourself from negative energy is a very effective technique. This utilizes the power of visualization in the same way that thinking about your happy spot does. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and imagine yourself surrounded by a soft white positive light. Consider it a force field, a protective bubble, or some plain old-fashioned light treatment. Whatever you call it, it's an effective strategy to keep negative energy at bay.
Stop giving away your energy.
The truth is that you feel depleted because you let someone or something drain all of your cheerful, healthy energy. You must desire to say no and set boundaries when it comes to creating boundaries and saying no. Not because you know you should, but because you recognize the advantages of safeguarding and feeding your own energy, as well as the dangers of continually feeding someone else's. For many of us, this is a tough concept to put into reality because we prefer to aid our coworkers, friends, and family over ourselves. But the ancient adage holds true: you must first love yourself. You must have a strong desire to do so.
Control that ego.
How much time and energy do you squander reacting to bad influences and wasting it on things that don't really matter? Be honest with yourself about how much you obsess over that flawless Instagrammed life or how easily you get sucked into a rumor feud. When you react to poisonous energy, stress about looking as good as someone else, or try to “correct” someone's view of you, your ego is at work. Pause for a moment before reacting. Allowing your ego to run your mouth or wasting your energy is a bad idea. First and foremost, consider whether this issue is even worth your time and effort. Most likely, it isn't.
Energy is the ultimate predictor of your total pleasure, thus protecting it is critical to your mental and physical health. Every day, we give a lot of ourselves away at work, to our friends, and to our loved ones. We must acknowledge that our needs are as essential to those of others. Protect your vitality. Give yourself the gift of a mind that is truly healthy.

How do you charge yourself spiritually?
It's critical to pay attention to your thinking when it comes to recharging your personal batteries. It's difficult to recharge when we're thinking about the things that stress us out. Here are some suggestions for calming and energizing your mind:
Make a list of your accomplishments
It's natural to feel as if you can't keep up or that you're not contributing enough. Sit down and make a short list of your successes if you're feeling overwhelmed. This might provide you with the motivation and energy you need to keep moving forward.
Take breaks from things and people that bring you down
Take a break from particular people or situations if they are bringing you down. This may include putting certain relationships on wait until you have the energy to address them.
Spend time with close friends and family
Good people tend to exude positive energy. Spend more time with those who lift you up rather than those who drag you down to recharge.
Multitasking is an easy way to become anxious. Instead of multitasking, which increases your risk of making mistakes, concentrate on completing one task at a time. Making a checklist might assist you in remaining focused and keeping track of your accomplishments.
Take a break from technology
On social media, other people's lives often appear “perfect,” but this is rarely the case. It can be stressful to feel as if you have to live up to a specific standard. Put your social media accounts on hold.
Do something artsy
Art is a wonderful method to relax an overworked mind. Get out your art supplies and start drawing or painting. Many retailers also provide coloring books with intricate patterns designed to help people relax.
Write in a journal
Keeping a journal might help you relieve stress by allowing you to express your emotions. At the start or conclusion of each day, try to write for at least five minutes. This can also assist you in resolving any issues you may be having.
How do you awaken spiritually?
Be aware of and deliberate about what you believe. Recognize the energy you're putting out into not simply your world, but the globe at large. Also, be truthful. Are your beliefs assisting you in your spiritual development? A spiritual awakening frequently necessitates the renunciation of long-held beliefs. But here's the thing about waking up: you have to realize you've been asleep first.
