To white light or not?
I get very passionate when I hear people talking about protecting themselves with white light. My views on this are quite different to the spiritual teachings that are mostly out there. So if you read this and it pushes your buttons, I apologise, but maybe consider what I am saying and see if you are willing to give it a go and maybe reframe slightly your intention when you next “white light” or use energetic protection for yourself.
For those of you who have not heard of white light as a form of protection I will briefly describe the process that is taught by many spiritual teachers. The idea is that if we imagine a bubble of white light around us it will act like a force field and reflect any energy that might penetrate our energetic field. Sounds simple and effective doesn’t it. Well it is, but it can be quite a disempowering act if not used with careful intent.
When I was at my lowest point with severe chronic fatigue syndrome, I could not be around people at all. I had complete sensory overload. This would even include watching TV, reading the newspaper and especially being around people – it would exhaust me! I have always been sensitive to energy and empathetic, but when I became ill, it was so severe I had to shut myself off from the world completely.
I was introduced to the white light technique as one of my first spiritual teachings. Every time I left my house I would imagine the white light shield around me to protect me from all the “harmful” energies in the world so I could function (barely) when I left my house. It was effective in the sense that it gave me something to focus on and was a tool of protection from all the overpowering energies around me.
Over time I found that when I was around people the white light shield was so effective that I couldn’t connect to people at all. If someone was talking with me I felt like a robot without feeling because I couldn’t pick up on any emotion in their voice and I really had trouble reading people in conversation. I just couldn’t engage with people anymore. I felt isolated. I couldn’t connect with the outside world. This is not what I wanted when I chose to white light myself.
So I decided to change my intention. I started by changing the colour of the protective shield around me to pink. Pink to me is the colour of love. So my intention was that anything that was vibrating at the same level as love could pass through my shield only. This worked slightly better for me.
It was around this time I discovered teachings about Archangel Michael. If you are not familiar, Archangel Michael is the angel who carries a big blue sword who you can call on for protection. I started calling on Archangel Michael constantly! Every day I was using his loving strong energy to protect me from people, situations and anything at all that I felt I needed protection from.
With my white/pink shield of light and Archangel Michael to protect me I found something very interesting starting to happen; I started becoming weaker and weaker. Even though my health was slowly starting to get better, my self confidence and trust in myself was getting weaker.
What I had done was use techniques and energetic beings who I considered to be outside of myself and more powerful than me to come and protect me. I gave my power away to these techniques and beings. I got weaker and weaker and therefore used the techniques more and more to protect me. I no longer had the belief in myself that I could protect myself. I saw the world as something that I needed protection from and I became more and more isolated and more and more fearful of the world. I was retreating and becoming afraid of everything.
Something had to change but how could I just let these techniques go? I wouldn’t survive in the world without them …. would I? I had become so reliant on these protection methods that I didn’t know how to function without them. But something had to change.
After realising what was happening to me and asking the question of myself, I got the wakeup call that I needed. I had an experience that taught me that I couldn’t call on an angel for help unless the energies of that angel were a part of me in the first place. I learned that I couldn’t call on an energy or “light” to surround me unless that energy was already a part of me.
What we all have the ability to do is to separate out what is inside of us in order for us to visualise, connect and understand it, and then it returns to where it came from – inside of us. We are all a part of this world and interconnected with everything. Every energy, emotion, thought and experience is part of the collective. Separating out these energies is how we function and learn and explore as human beings. We feel as though we are separate but we are not – it is just an illusion that is required to be a part of this three dimensional world.
When I realised that I was Archangel Michael and that I was the powerful protective light energy I visualised around me, everything shifted. Instead of believing that I was weak and incapable of protecting myself and using something that I perceived as being outside of myself and completely separate from me – I shifted my focus to using these techniques with the intent and belief that I was invoking what was already inside of me. I didn’t need to use these visualisations for very long at all after adopting this belief. They became organically me in every moment of my day.
I no longer had to call on these energies or visualise them, because I had adopted the belief that I was these energies, I was powerful, and I could protect myself and stand in my own energetic power at all times. I was no longer fearful of the world because I wasn’t constantly putting up barriers to protect me. I understood this concept mentally, but most importantly I could feel my inner-power start to rise.
By all means use energetic protection but feel it come from within you. Know that you are the same as this energy you call on to protect you. You could not connect with it, or visualise it, or feel its power, if you were not already a part of this energy.
Relationships are how we exchange information with other people via our energy.
While it may look like the same behaviours and actions are occurring within all relationships, at an energetic level it is quite different when we compare different dimensional levels. In this article I will explain (as best I can!) how our multi-dimensional evolution also changes how we exchange information with those people we are in relationships with.
I use the dimensions as a frame of reference, simply to make it easier to explain the different concepts, but these dimensions and numbers are certainly not definitive. Please substitue your own understanding of the evolution of humankind and multi-dimensionality if you prefer.
The predominant feature of 3D relationships is energy cords. We offer information to another person via our own energy through an energy cord or stream of energy, and we receive information from the other person also via this energy cord.
We are not very selective about the type of information that is exchanged, we basically decide to have some sort of relationship with another person (usually without any awareness of our energy) and a cord is formed. This can become quite "messy" with multiple cords of energy flowing from us and to us without our conscious awareness.
It is at this level where we can be drained of our energy from certain people. We can also develop certain patterns and behaviours with other people because of the types of energy cords that we have established with them. Even when we have physically moved away from our relationship, these energy cords can still be exchanging information making it very difficult to move onto another relationship or heal from the past relationship.
Unless we consciously disconnect (or cut) these energy cords they can exchange information for a long time, even when the relationship is "over".
In order to move to the next level of relationships (5D relationships) it is necessary to consciously cut and remove energy cords - even between the people we are still happily in relationships with. We can then form our own unique and authentic energy "bubble" and start to evolve to 5D relationships.
If you are interested in how to cut these cords and form your own energy "bubble" I explain this in my Empowered Energy e-book or I can facilitate this for you in a personal healing session.
When we have a relationship at the 5th dimensional level we are more selective about the information that we share with other people.
Because we have cut or removed all the energy cords from our previous 3D relationships our energy is in integrity and whole. We have our own individual and unique energy "bubbles" around us. I have written more about this in a previous blog post.
When we choose to have a relationship with someone, then we decide what we want to "put into" the relationship and what we want to "get out" of the relationship. We put this information into a joint bubble of energy that represents the relationship energy. We also take out the information we want from this joint bubble. We are not therefore connecting directly to the other person although it will feel like a normal relationship, we can stay in energetic integrity throughout.
For example, forming a romantic relationship with someone who is also vibrating at the 5th dimension, you will have an intention or idea as to what you would like from the relationship. The other person also has their intentions. You do not need to worry about anyone overstepping their boundaries, or upsetting each other, or whether your intentions are the same, or demanding more than the other person is willing to give... all of these concerns are 3D worries. Instead you put into the relationship what you desire (goes into the relationship or joint bubble) and you also take from the relationship what you desire (also from the joint bubble). It becomes such an easy process.
Even when the relationship is no longer needed, it is an easy process to move on, because there is no meshing or combining of energy through energy cords. The relationship bubble just loses its vital force because nothing is being put into it or taken from it anymore.
The relationship at this level is easy, effortless, fulfilling and does not compromise the individual's sense of self or their energetic integrity. It is also a deeper more authentic relationship because you can fully be yourself with your energy in integrity inside its own "bubble". It is deeper and more authentic than a 3D relationship because there is no unconscious energy flowing to and fro, trapping a person in behaviours that are difficult to break away from.
The exchange of information at this level is more organic. Whereas previously at the 3D and 5D levels we were more involved in what we wanted to get out of or put into a relationship, at this level we share everything.
If both people are vibrating at the 7th dimensional level then there is an open sharing of information. The physical relationship still looks the same, but there is a constant connection and sharing of higher wisdom which seems to be via the crown chakras.
There are still individual energy bubbles keeping the individuals in energetic integrity so this sharing of higher information does not compromise the individual's energy.
The physical relationship still looks the same as a 5D relationship but there is less reliance on physical proximity, conversation or having to explain details to the other person in order to share information.
Again, like a 5D relationship it is an easy, effortless relationship.
The transition from 5D to 7D relationships can be a little disconcerting as there is a feeling of losing privacy or worrying that you may be taking or giving too much, but once the transition phase is complete, the exchange of information feels very organic and safe.
At this vibration level all boundaries and bubbles become quite fuzzy. There is less sharing of information in a relationship between two 9D people, but instead, a oneness of information.
Without clear boundaries on who has what information to share there is an organic connection to each other and to oneness (all that is/source) and everyone.
There becomes no need for individual energy bubbles or a direct method of exchanging information. Every relationship and every individual just exists in the oneness having access to all the information that is available.
Relationships between dimensions
You may wonder what happens when a person who is vibrating at a higher level forms a relationship with someone at a lower lever (and vice versa). This of course happens all the time, and as multi-dimensional beings we are moving between dimensions all the time.
If a 7D person for example is in a relationship (whether romantic, business, family or casual acquaintance) with a 3D person, the 3D person will automatically try to attach an energetic cord to the 7D person. The 7D person will not be able to accept the energy cord because they have a bubble of their own energy around them. The 3D person won't know this or even feel it unless they are used to "sucking" energy from their relationships. In this case they will probably make do with the relationship as it is, or move on. The 7D person will still exchange energy with this person but probably not at a deep level they would be most capable of and may not feel quite as fulfilled.
We don't have to cut people out of our lives if we feel we are moving into another dimension. Instead just recognise that the relationships may change a little in terms of how energy and information is shared. If you are evolving then the people you are in relationships with will probably also be shifting their vibration in alignment with you.
If you cut the energy cords from your relationships, then it enables the other person to form their own energy bubble of integrity, and so what was once a 3D relationship between two people, can easily become a 5D relationship which intensifies the relationship and makes it much more authentic and fulfilling.
Exceptions to the rule:
When you have children they are reliant on your energy until they are around 8 years of age. It is a good idea to cut the cords you have with them (or remove them from your energy bubble) when they are ready for their own independence. I remember doing this around the ages of 11 with my children. This enables them to form their own connection to vital source energy and develop their own integrity, self power and presence in the world.
Everything that I teach and the work that I do with my clients is aimed at helping people form their own energy bubbles of integrity and empowerment. It is not until we can cut the cords of repeating energy patterns and conditioning of the 3D world that we can move into higher dimensions.
Having your own authentic and unique energy bubble is the most important gift we can give ourselves, and is (I believe) the only way to authentically and smoothly transition through the dimensions. If we are trying to carry and maintain energy cords with other people, then they will keep dragging us down to 3D involuntarily.
If you have any questions about this material, please let me know in the comments. I would love to hear how it resonates or what changes you would make to this information based on your own experiences.
I believe that knowing who we are at our unique soul level holds the key to living an authentic and joyful life. Once we know who we are, we can begin to BE who we are, and then BECOME who we were always destined to be.
Thank you for your support of this work....
