Last night, perhaps influenced by this new moon in Pisces energy, I agreed to take my family to an all you can eat buffet for dinner.
NOT my cup of tea...especially after doing a fabulous 3 day cleanse, but mostly because I don't do well, energetically speaking, in those kinds of environs. But my family seemed so happy for this "treat" and I didn't want to be the kill-joy, so we went. And without any thought or logic, when we walked through the doors, instead of judging the experience, I whispered my intention to love the experience.
As expected, the place was a mad mess of strange consumption vibes. Resolved to let my family enjoy this experience, I withheld judgment, nagging and tried to keep my germ anxiety to myself.
Once there, I scanned the seemingly never ending buffet stations and silently whispered a prayer of blessing that all the food be infused with contentment to satisfy the deep(er) hunger we all were here to satiate.
And something strange happened. I felt a shift.
I looked up at the person in front of me who was scooping ungodly-sized portions of potatoes and gravy next to his ice cream already on his plate, and in my mind said, "I love you."
I felt another shift. And a smile spread across my face.
I looked to my other side, at the man who was grabbing crab legs by the bunch with his bare hands and stacking them high on his plate. Turning my focus to the third eye area of his forehead, I silently intended, "I love you."
He looked at me and grinned like a child on Christmas morning.
I beamed right back at him. This felt good.
As I made my way down the aisle, I said this silent prayer to everyone I encountered (and there were a lot of people there on a Friday night!) and each time, I felt my energy field expand and shift, and...I felt a real, true, honest to Goddess sense of compassion and connectedness with each and every one of these lovely people!
And it did not wipe me out.
Neptune is certainly having fun. I am grateful for this new shielding technique that can only be described as a Neptunian Download. YES, shielding is important to the empath, the psychic, the sensitive as a matter of self-preservation. But over the next few days, the Cosmos has us swirling in a soupy thick auspicious space in which to work with the current energies from a different perspective. And in truly working with this energy, we see that the stories we've been telling ourselves have been holding us back from the LOVE that is going to save us all.
Neptune, the god of Infinite Imagination, is urging us to get out of our heads and to connect with our hearts to those around us. Work with this energy by using LOVE as your psychic shield. Go with the flow and let the Mystery that Is surprise you with your own revelations of LOVE and empathy.
How do you shield? What is your best practice for psychic shielding? What helps you to keep your energy stores full and/or replenished?
