How to protect your energy so you have more of it!

A common question I get is: How do I have more energy?

Having more energy is not about going out and getting more, it is about protecting the energy you already have.

We all are energetic beings and sensitive to the emotions of others and the general environment of any situation. Even if you are not aware of it consciously, you are consistently picking up stuff from your external environment.

Those of who are HSP (a highly sensitive person) know exactly what I am talking about. You feel other people’s emotions and the vibe of a room. So much so that it can totally deplete you.
How do we stop taking on other people’s stuff? And how do we go out and engage in our daily lives without feeling depleted?

These are the questions I answer in today’s vlog where I give you my five top tips for protecting your energy.  This has been a HUGE part of my own development. I would  not be able to do what I do without these tools.

Here is an overview of the tips that I go into much more detail in the video so be sure to watch!

1. Stay out of judgment!! We take on others stuff whenever we have an opinion about someone or going into pity

2. Protect your energetic field by cocooning yourself in light

3. Burn any “gunk” away by imagining a purple flame in your belly area (this is your 3rd chakra where a lot of energy that does not belong to us collects)

4. Pray and ask for help! Hand over someone else’s stuff to a Higher Power

5. Clear your energy at the end of the day with a shower, bath or dancing it off!

I encourage you to use these tips and also head on over to the blog and comment on what helps you have more energy. I always love your comments and questions.

Remember:  It is possible to be compassionate and loving with others without taking on their stuff. Protect your energy to have more of it! ((Tweet this!))

    There should be a course on this in MFT programs. Such helpful tips. I especially liked a recent podcast where you talked about going into sessions with compassion and acceptance, leaving judgment and sympathy behind. You gave this teaching more time on the podcast, naturally.

    I post a lot of positive feedback but I think it’s good karma to show appreciation.

    • Christine Hassler

      ArtN thank you for all of your positive and encouraging feedback, it means a lot to me and I LOVE hearing from readers. So glad this was helpful to you too.

  • Sharon

    This was so helpful to me, I have major issues with taking on other peoples’ energy. Thank you!

    • Christine Hassler

      I am so glad to hear this was helpful. Excited to hear how you do practicing these practices.

    I appreciate this! I don’t know if I’m a HSP, but I know for certain I am very sensitive to other people’s mood. Can’t wait to end the day with some journaling after watching your video.

      Linda, you might enjoy the work of Elane Aron and you can learn more here: Enjoy the practices and your journal time.

    I love everything about this! I find myself getting stuck in sympathy a lot, it’s so easy to feel helpless when others are in pain. But sending light and love and coming from a compassionate standpoint is the way out of feeling stuck in those situations. Thank you!

    • Christine Hassler

      Gretch, my pleasure and so glad you see the power in shifting from sympathy to compassion. Excited to hear how this shift feels for you and others:)

  • Sue

    This is super advise….. lots of tips that i will put into practice….. i sometimes visulise a beautiful big see through bubble around me, which keeps out the badness but allows good inside….. it really works…….. Thank you…..

    • Christine Hassler

      Sue, yes I love that tool too! Excited to hear how these work for you. xo

  • Ma Ch

    Would this also apply if you want to protect your energy from people like your mom? How can you do to avoid judging in a good or bad way when people are so close to you?

    • Christine Hassler

      Ma Ch, yes you can use it with everyone, including your mom. My hunch is you might have the opportunity to set loving boundaries with your mom or people you are close to. And a way to avoid judgment is to move into a place of acceptance or compassion.

      • Ma Ch

        Thanks, Christine! I learn so much from your podcast.
