Protect Yourself

3 Simple Techniques to Keep Your Personal Energy Safe

Protect Yourself

Gather your Energetic self-protection tools here

Many people don’t know what a big collector I am, perhaps because my collection isn’t visible to the naked eye.

Self-healing techniques are my favorite things to collect.

In essence, every healing mentor that I’ve ever studied with has introduced me to yet another self-protection technique. As a result, I’ve gathered quite an assortment over the past three decades.

You might say that ‘energetic protection‘ is one of my specialties.

How do you protect yourself… energetically?

Isn’t it time you learned how?

~~~Learn three different energy protection techniques

In this blog, I’m going to introduce you to three different self-protection techniques. I recommend that you try each one for a day or so to get a feel for what it does for you. After you’ve experimented with each one individually, then I recommend using two a day and see how that feels. Eventually, it will be interesting for you to use all three techniques for several days in a row and to notice how you experience that.

~~~Energetically protect yourself daily

At the present time, I rarely use all three techniques every day, however, I almost always use at least one.   Above all, whenever I am going out into the world, whether it’s to a grocery store or to see Reiki clients, I will make sure to call up my protection.

~~~Memorize how to energetically protect yourself

Equally important, memorize each self-protection technique listed below. Then, once you have each technique memorized, it’s easy to call up the protection you need while you are driving or before leaving home or the office. Commonly, I will remember to invite in the protection while in a parking lot right before I enter a building.

~~Rose Light Protection

In the 1990s, when I was in my Native American spirituality phase (a phase that never protect yourself energetically with lightreally ended, but has been in the background ever since), my dear friend and mentor introduced me to what she called ‘Rose Light Protection.’ This is a very simple and effective way to energetically protect yourself.

The wording is as follows:

“I invite, Rose Light protection, to gather,

from my feet to my ankles, to my knees, to my hips,

to my shoulders, to my head, and extending out a foot (from my body).”

~~~Pink mist surrounds you

Basically, what this does is, it creates an oval-shaped sphere of Divine pink light around your entire body, which then protects you from outside energy entering your field and body. It even prevents the chaos energy from a large public place from entering your energy field.

~~~Any color will protect you

When I call in the Rose Light protection, I imagine this misty pink light growing up from my feet and surrounding my entire body. This type of protection can be based on any color that you desire. Certain colors of light have certain qualities and whatever you are drawn to will work just as effectively for you.

~~~Intention of protection is essential

My intention combined with this visualization, is that this Rose Light sphere protects me and filters away any negative, ungrounded, non-beneficial energies. This technique is the simplest version of protection that I’ve been using for over 30 years. It will protect me for an hour or more before I need to repeat the invocation.

It’s a bit of a catch-22 to know when the energetic protection is waning. I will usually start to feel fuzzy, scattered and ungrounded as it does. As a result, I will also forget to re-protect myself energetically. Sometimes, setting an hourly timer to go off on my phone helps me remember to re-protect myself every hour.

Typically, I combine this technique with a few other processes. Ready to learn more about energetically protecting yourself?

~~Tube of Light Prayer

Another useful technique that I learned along the way is called the Tube of Light Prayer.

I envision being surrounded by the Tube of Light which protects me and my energy from protect yourself energetically with tube of light worldly influences. Typically, when I use this Tube of Light prayer, I feel protected, balanced, centered and focused.

Tube of Light Prayer

Beloved I AM Presence bright

Around me seal your tube of light,

From Ascended Master Flame,

Called forth now in God’s own name,

Let it keep my temple free,

From all discord sent to me,





(Repeat three times, whenever you say this decree.)


There are multiple versions of this Tube of Light prayer which can be found all over the Internet. Here are a couple of interesting ones

~~Armor of God

The latest protection technique that I learned recently is from Amanda Ellis of the UK protect yourself energetically with light with armor of godand it is called the Armor of God. The directions below are basically what I have taken from an Amanda Ellis YouTube video. Again, there are multiple versions of this out in cyberspace, most of them are connected to the Bible and Christianity. The Armor of God version I am presenting here is more connected to a universal understanding of protection and using the archangels to help instill it. Ideally, it is best to begin this process after you wake up in the morning, but before you leave your bed.

Armor of God

I invoke Archangel Metatron to join me now.

I ask for his support and guidance with installing the Armor of God around me and to help me remember to take it down before I go to sleep.

I invoke Archangel Sandalphon to join with me now.

I say thank you for helping me with my body armor.

I ask Archangel Sandalphon to fortify my feet with the Gospel of Peace.

I invoke Archangel Michael to join with me now.

I ask Archangel Michael to hand me the Sword of the Spirit.

I hold out my non-dominant hand to receive it. It will be hovering in my field all day until I take it down. I don’t have to hold onto it.

I ask Archangel Michael to give me the Shield of Faith.

and I hold out my dominant hand to receive it. It will be hovering in my field all day until I take it down. I don’t have to hold onto it.

I ask Archangel Metatron to place the Belt of Absolute Truth.

around my waist. It is like a heavyweight belt that goes all around you, without being heavy, just protective.

I invoke Archangel Uriel to join with me now.

I ask Archangel Uriel to place the Breast Plate of Righteousness in front of my chest.

I ask Archangel Metatron to place the Helmet of Awakening onto/above my head. This helmet is made of metal mail and will transform into solid form as needed. This helmet protects all the chakras of the head, the ear chakras, third eye and crown chakras and also the chakras that are developing above the head. Therefore, this crown is conical in shape.

When you go to bed at night, it is important to ask these archangels to help you remove these layers of protection, so that your sleep is in a place of freedom. These protections are for the earth plane and while we sleep, we no longer need them. That being said, if I forget, I don’t notice anything different.

Stay in balance

When I use energetic protection, I am less likely to get thrown off balance. I am more likely to stay calm and centered, patient, understanding, etc. If I overreact and go off the deep end, it is usually because I have forgotten to protect myself from other people’s energies.

The need for energetic protection at all times

It’s fairly obvious that we need to protect ourselves before we enter a large mall or store. However, we may not realize that we need just as much protection when we are around family and friends. Sometimes we are exposed to more emotional outbursts around friends and family.

It’s a good idea to develop a healthy habit of self-care and to practice energetic protection on a daily basis. You will be glad you did.

Time to get the lesson

Decades ago, I learned a painful lesson about absorbing energy from others after attending a 70th birthday party held in honor of my mother-in-law. The party was attended by all her neighborhood friends, who were also well into their 70’s.

Up until that night, I hadn’t understood how much I needed to protect myself at all times. Once the party was over, we came back to my mother-in-law’s house to sleep. However, after I laid down to go to sleep, I realized how revved up I was. I was hyper alert and hyper awake. Even though it might have been 11:00 o’clock at night, my energy would not calm down. I tried using all my faithful insomnia homeopathic remedies; from coffea to Chamomilla to Nux. All to no avail.

Self-help insomnia tools don’t always work

I tried soaking my feet in warm water with Epsom salts. I took a late night walk underneath the stars. I walked barefoot in the grass. The hours of the night kept ticking by and I was still wide awake. Even chamomile tea was unsuccessful.

Intuitive Aha!

Eventually, my intuition helped me understand why I could not get to sleep. I realized that I had absorbed all sorts of energy from everyone at the party. I was apparently filled to the brim with everyone else’s energies.

Breathe in Light, breathe out their energies, saves the night

Finally that night, I started breathing in Light and breathing out every emotion and mental state that I could think of. I breathed in Light and breathed out fear, anxiety, worry, hatred, anger, hurt, sadness, grief, sorrow, etc. Amazingly, it worked. I was finally able to go to sleep. Even though I had spent most of the night awake, I was grateful to finally fall asleep.

We are always sharing energy

Humanity is always leaking personal energy out into the environment. Most of us have no idea that we are doing it. We are not intentionally poisoning the air and environment with our repressed emotions and off-balance mental states, but that is exactly what happens.

How susceptible are you to the energies you absorb?

Notably, we all have different levels of susceptibility to absorbing energies from the environment. Explicitly, absorbing foreign energy from other humans tends to create havoc within us, due to differing vibrations. These absorbed energies can clog up our system and create congestion within.

Typically, these energies are made up of lower vibrations, such as anger, worry, anxiety, hatred, etc. Lower vibrations tend to lower our energy over time and may leave us feeling drained and depleted.

Similarly, we also absorb positive energies from our environment; love, joy, compassion, Light, beauty. These higher vibrational energies tend to raise up our own energies and can have an energizing effect.

I am intolerant to your energy…

Some of us are more tolerant to the energies that we absorb. Or it may be that these foreign energies get tucked away into fat molecules or other parts of the body that we don’t notice immediately. I always notice when I have absorbed other people’s energy, as it keeps me up at night!

I prefer to get my lesson the first time

I am grateful to learn energy lessons. If you have trouble sleeping at night, perhaps it’s time to reflect on what energy you were around that day. What did you absorb unknowingly?

Sometimes I am kept awake from watching too many exciting episodes of a series on TV. As soon as I realize I am having trouble sleeping, I begin the Breathe in Light process and breathe out a list of emotions, mental states, electronic energy, and whatever else comes to mind.

When I protect myself energetically, I sleep deeply

My sleep is important to me and I will vigilantly protect it. After a day where I employed the energy protection techniques mentioned above, I sleep much better. Using these simple energy protection techniques may be the next self-care routine you add to your life. Let me know how they work for you in a comment below.

Are you protecting yourself… energetically?

~~Bonus protection technique…

Another simple way to protect yourself from absorbing energies in your environment might protect yourself energetically with quartz and jasper surprise you. Ever since I learned how quartz crystals will actually amplify positive energy around you, I have used them on a daily basis. I typically will place one or more precious stones in my pockets of my clothing as yet another way to protect my energy.

Currently, the two essentials that I keep in my pockets are– a quartz crystal point and a reddish Jasper stone. I read at the beginning of the COVID pandemic that red Jasper was protective against catching it (trust me, I can see your eyes rolling now). However, I know the energetic qualities of the stone tend to be about grounding and staying in balance.

And, in order for me to believe a statement or suggestion, I have to listen to it with my gut and heart. In a matter of seconds, I always know whether something is true or not. I don’t have to spend a lot of time analyzing, justifying or researching the scientific theory behind something. If something feels right to me, that’s all I need. I trust my gut and follow my intuition daily.

It seems to be working out.
