How To Set Energetic Boundaries
How do I mean?
You are the one who allows someone – or something – into your space. You are the one who determines how you will allow energy to interact with you. You are the one who shapes that interaction.
You hear the term “boundaries” and “protection” used interchangeably, but they are not the same thing. One places the power in someone else’s hands. The other places it in yours.
How Boundaries Affect Your Daily Life
Let’s take, for example, someone who is a people pleaser and can never stand up for themselves. They always have to be agreeable and can’t handle conflict. This is an indication of someone who can’t hold boundaries. If they can’t hold boundaries in their personal life, how can they hold spiritual boundaries?
It’s about more than just protecting yourself. This is especially of note for empaths who act as psychic sponges for the people around them. The number one thing I tell them is to check their boundaries.
Setting boundaries isn’t about saying a prayer, or calling in your guardian angels. It has nothing to do with words. It’s all about how you FEEL. If you are adept at feeling the subtleties of energy, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Being able to set boundaries is about FEELING strong. It’s about FEELING in control. It’s about FEELING safe and secure. It’s about being unafraid.
If you struggle with feeling any of those things, chances are, you do not have good boundaries and you probably won’t until you work through your issues and take your power back.
How To Recognize Your Energetic Boundaries
Sit and meditate, and feel your own energy pushing out from within you and create a bubble around yourself. Immerse yourself in that energy. Really take the time to FEEL what you’re putting out there. What does it feel like? Does it feel strong? Does it feel empowered? Does it feel weak or unsure? There really is a noticeable difference.
You’re probably either laughing or really confused or both about the shower graphic. It’s a very common occurrence for developing intuitives to have spiritual experiences in intimate/private situations, particularly in the shower due to the monotony of the shower routine. It creates a somewhat meditative state and makes it easier for spirits to communicate. Additionally, water is a spiritual conductor of sorts. So I’ve had discussions and questions from more than a few people who have had similar experiences. I often tell them that if it makes them uncomfortable, they should work to set better boundaries…but ultimately, no – spirits don’t care if you’re naked.
My first reaction to the reading was WOW. Your words captured a theme woven into my life right now. The reading has emboldened me to take back my power and inspired me to research some books, get back to meditating and provided a focus.Dina
