Psychic Boxes and Bubbles

Image - Bubble BoxThe Oneness — the Connection between All Things — is central to your reality as an intuitive.

Some would argue that any “separateness” is an illusion — more an abstraction of reality than a fact.

Yet, to maintain the balance between your professional effectiveness and your well-being, working as an intuitive requires you to continually explore and manipulate perspectives of connection and separation.

Healthy Psychic Distance

In addition to rituals of psychic protection and energy clearing, there are ways to create healthy psychic distance — even when you’re in the middle of an intentional reading.

Sometimes you DO have to retreat into yourself.
When you’re physically ill, feeling tired or stressed or a little bit blue, the connection can cause discomfort, anxiety, or even pain — the sensitivity, the empathy, the input, the impulses and pulses of information, the psychic data — the vibes you normally might invite and labor to maintain can feel unwanted, unmanageable, and unhealthy.

Little Boxes

Instead of avoiding your intuition or totally yanking the plug on a reading, “put a box around” the information. In clinical psychotherapeutic terminology, the concept is very similar to “compartmentalization.”

Choose to identify exterior thoughts and feelings as separate from your own — and contained within a different energetic space and/or contained away from your mind and body.

Visualize the images you receive as existing inside a frame, or viewed through a window, or appearing on a monitor (like a television or computer screen).

You can often control psychic sound as you might a stereo or other audio equipment. Imagine yourself manipulating the controls on a radio, such as turning the volume down or changing channels. You can even hit the mute button or turn it off.

Blow Bubbles

It’s a little trickier to impose psychic distance when emotions are involved. If you’re an empath, you’ve probably grown accustomed to absorbing the emotional vibes of other people and mistakenly accepting these feelings as your own.

You can control much of this phenomenon by consciously identifying that some of the emotions you experience are not your own.

Creating this “psychic box” may require a bit of visualization as well as feeling. Picture yourself, other people — every other entity — as dwelling inside a bubble, like Glinda the Good Witch.

Question the origin of the emotions:

  • Who do these feelings belong to?
  • When and where did they originate?
  • When and where did you come into contact with them?

The very definition of claircognizance is direct thought download — thoughts are just there. You just know, and you don’t know how, when, or why you came to know.

Adapt the bubbles visualization from the section above on clairsentience — impose the concept of separation and compartmentalization. Then, invoke an interior animation or instant replay of events. Ask your spirit guides to supply information.

Investigate the origin of the thoughts, facts, data, or ideas:

  • Did these thoughts belong to someone else?
  • When and where were they first channeled, created, or manifested?
  • When and where — and perhaps by whom — were they projected to you?

By employing boxes and bubbles, you can remain consciously aware while imposing just a little — just enough — psychic distance.

What techniques do you use in this context that the rest of us might like to borrow?

Psychic Shielding for Empaths

Psychic ShieldI’ve yet to encounter anyone who has a high level of natural intuitive abilities — such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, or claircognizance — who is not also primarily clairsentient.

Empathy — experiencing external emotional energies as your own moods and sensitivities and feelings — is the foundation of “being psychic.”

For those who identify as Lightworkers, empathy is a part of everyday life. For those who take this identity into the professional realm, residual energy can literally become an occupational hazard.

You are probably familiar with the concept of psychic protection using Purple Light and White Light Shielding — Purple Light being the highest angelic vibe you can invoke for spiritual protection, nurturing, and support; White Light being the universal holy shield.

But White Light may be too hard core for day-to-day human interactions and relationships.

In addition to regular energy clearing practices and cord-cutting, I most often share the following psychic “soft” shielding technique with empaths who work in para-professional or healing arts fields where heart-centered connection is a requirement.

The Pink Light Shielding Technique was originally posted on my blog Shift Your Spirits.
