I know it’s a little late to be talking about Mother’s Day, but oh well. This was my first Mother’s Day, and so everything relating to it has been rolling around in my head a lot.
I’m enjoying being a mom. I love my Little Wizard. He’s the light of my life. And I’ve realized that life is both the same as it has always been, as well as very different in certain ways. Obviously, taking care of a little person 24/7 is a big change that you have to acclimate to, but there are also more subtle changes happening.
The main example is how much more aware I have to be of my energy, and the energy that comes and goes from our lives.
Brom is empathic like me – I can tell that already, even though he’s only 9 weeks old. If I get frustrated or upset, it sets him off. This can be when I’m irritated at someone else, he’ll get fussy until I calm down – or it can be when it’s late, I’m tired, and I just want him to sleep. If I get irritated with the situation, it just makes him cry or fuss more. So I’m having to learn methods of keeping myself calm and collected, even when I don’t feel it.
I am also watching every little energetic thing that happens around our home. For example, a couple weeks ago I was in the kitchen doing something, and my husband was hanging out with Brom. Everything was fine until he said, “He’s watching something.” with ‘the tone’ in his voice.
Code: Get your ass out here, because this is something I don’t know how to deal with. (Corey is as awesome as they come, but he isn’t particularly sensitive.)
I come out to see them, and Brom is obviously tracking something along the wall. I followed his gaze, and found a nine-foot-tall shadow on the window, moving slowly. There was no way something outside was casting this shadow. It was twilight, and our yard is fenced in, so there was no way a person was casting that shadow. As soon as I looked at it, it darted (quicker than a person could move) across the window and vanished.
Of course I freaked out, yelling “Out! Off my property!” and banishing it from anywhere near my home.
This really wasn’t something new. This sort of thing happens fairly regularly to us, and I deal with it when it does. But the fact that Brom saw it really put me off, and the fact that Corey was distressed that he couldn’t do anything about it bothered me.
On top of that, I realized that I had to come up with new ways to deal with a certain person in my life. Yes, this is something that was driven home on Mother’s Day. I’ve been having issues with this person for a long time, and they are someone I can’t just cut out of my life (I’ve already minimized contact with them as much as possible.) In the past I would get irritated, vent a little, and try to move on. But now my bristling irritation and venting affect Brom poorly. He fusses whenever I start talking about this person, or even thinking about them with too much focus. So I had to find ways to protect my mind and emotions from my own anger, and keep that energy far away from my son.
These things won’t leave my mind, and after rolling them over and over, I realized that I do a lot to protect the energy of my home and family. There are a lot of little things I do – and I’m constantly learning new tricks – to keep unwanted energies and entities out of my home, and to keep the positive energy flowing strong.
But there are a lot of moms out there who don’t know how to do that. I know there are plenty of empaths, psychics, and sensitives who know they need to control the energy in their home, but they aren’t sure where to start. Thankfully there are many things you can do to start getting a handle on that energy, and I have two things to share with you today . . .
One of those things is a list of 5 things you can do to help protect the energy in your home. I’ve shared the first one here. All you have to do is share a link to this article to read the rest:
- Be Aware
That may sound goofy, but the most important step you can take toward controlling and protecting the energy in your home is to simply be aware of it. Take time to feel the energy that surrounds you, and familiarize yourself with what “normal” is. This way if something changes, you’ll know right away. This may take a little time, but not much, and it is likely way easier than you think.
- Asking for Help
I do a lot of angel work, both for myself and with clients, and something that seems to be difficult for people to wrap their minds around is that asking for help is the simplest and easiest thing that you can do.
People get this idea in their mind that invoking angels and other protection is complicated, or that there is some ritual involved. But in reality all you have to do is ask God, the Angels, or whoever you are most comfortable with to protect you, your family, and your home from negative energies and entities. Once you do this, you will likely feel a lot of energy lift, and your home will feel much better.
- Crystal Work
Adding crystals to your space or wearing them is an easy way to give the energy you want around a boost. Putting things like rosy quartz, white quartz, lapis, and other stones can boost love, communication, positivity, and protection. Adding a piece of smoky quartz to windowsills and over doors can keep negativity from entering your home.
There is no end to the things you can do with crystals, and I highly recommend doing some research and starting a crystal collection.
- Meditation and Self-Love
At first glance this doesn’t look like something that goes on this list, but it really does. I’ve watched a lot of women and checked out a lot of energy in their homes, and it seems that one of the most vulnerable places a woman leaves open is her own energetic health. It is so easy for moms to forget that taking care of themselves is very important.
If you don’t take care of yourself and make sure that your energy is full and clean, it is difficult to protect the rest of your family and home. So take time to meditate and pamper yourself at least a little.
- Cleansing Tools
If you need to jump-start the positive energy in your home (which I recommend,) or you need to clear out some negativity that works its way in, there are a few tools that you can use to get the energy back on track.
Lighting white candles is a great way to clear the energy in your home. They purify everything, and push out anything negative. Likewise, burning sage forces negative energy and entities away, leaving more room for positivity.
The other thing I want to share with you is a new program I have for Moms who are really serious about taking control of the energy in their lives. This includes their own energy, as well as the energy in their home and relationships. If you’re sick of negative energy leeching into your life and mucking things up, join me in my Energy Protection program here: http://lindseyrainwater.com/energy-protection-for-moms/
While we do everything we can to protect our families, sometimes there are extra, subtle things that we need to think about and take care of. And while they are subtle, it doesn’t make them unimportant.
I hope that this post has helped you to protect your mind and home a little more. It isn’t easy being a mom, but it is rewarding, and knowing that you’re doing everything in your power to keep your family safe and secure is the best feeling there is – and this extends to the spiritual and energetic realm.
How are you keeping your energy, and that of your home, positive?
