What happens when you get triggered? When someone or something pushes your buttons or bumps into one of your wounds?
What is your default reaction? What are your go-to defensive and protective shields? How does your energetic field react to a perceived threat or injury?
Do you activate the Shield of Anger by lashing out and pushing back?
Do you activate the Shield of Withdrawal and Invisibility by checking out and running away?
Do you activate the Shield of Perfectionism by doubling down on yourself and trying to make everything just right?
Do you activate the Shield of People Pleasing by going out of your way to take care of everyone else hoping they will love you more?
Do you activate the Shield of Authority by puffing up your ego and assuming a superior attitude?
We all have our automatic default reactions — the Shields we use for defense and protection — and they serve a purpose, however, they are often unconscious reactions that tend to keep us bound in difficult and unhealthy patterns and cycles. Awareness and consciousness is key to the transformation of these patterns.
In the next 5 weeks of Energetic Hygiene, let's explore and discover the most common ways we shield and defend ourselves as well as our automatic default methods of soothing our pain and discomfort. Let's journey into our energetic system and locate these Shields we carry… discovering their true purpose and transforming our unconscious defensive reactivity into conscious and powerful medicine for our growth and evolution. Let's create Ayni (right relationship) with our unconscious coping mechanisms and strategies!
Let's empower the Boundaries of our Energy Body to become more clearly aware and conscious of our wounds, imprints, and triggers so we can more effectively and efficiently respond rather than react to our triggers and therefore engage fully with our true work in the world. This is truly our greatest Protection.
Join us on Tuesday evenings in the yurt for a deep dive into personal energetic work and the transformation of stuck and stagnant energy patterns and beliefs into the fuel and fertilizer for this life journey. Learn and practice tools for clearing your energy body and maintaining the health of your energetic system.
These ongoing weekly sessions are co-facilitated by Celia Blackwood and Josephine Thomason. The ayni donation gratefully accepted each week is $10.
