Protection as Self Care 💛
There are many reasons why we feel the need for protection, and many ways we can protect ourselves.
Some things we seek protection for: when travelling to stay safe, from the negative energy and attitudes of others, protection from sickness or harm, protection from the negativity of world news, protection from the criticism and harsh judgments of others. We seek protection for these things among others.
Smudging Saje or palo santo is one of my go-to ways to protect myself from negative energy. I smudge my BoHo Shala (my bedroom) and my yoga Shala (yoga studio) every day.
The Aad Guray Nameh chant is a beautiful way to offer yourself protection.
The Aad Guray Nameh chant:
Aad Guray Nameh
Jugaad Guray Nameh
Sat Guray Nameh
Siri Guru Dayvay Nameh
I bow to the Primal Wisdom.
I bow to the Wisdom through the Ages.
I bow to the True Wisdom.
I bow to the great, unseen Wisdom
More Information: from Spirit Voyage :
“This is a mantra of protection and is recited to invoke the protective energy of the universe. “
“Many people chant this mantra when they need extra protection. It is part of the “triple mantra”, and is often spoken before driving a car to create a protective energy around the those in the car.
When you cannot be protected, this mantra shall protect you. When things stop, and won’t move, this makes them move in your direction.”- Yogi Bhajan
I also like to use crystals for protection. Malachite is a nice one to protect yourself from the negative energies of other people.
Praying to Archangel Michael , Saint Michael is a beautiful protector especially when travelling. We can ask protection from Archangel Michael and his guardian angels whenever needed.
Many people use the Young Living essential oil blend Thieves as a protection against illness. This is a beautiful blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus & Rosemary available from Young Living. I love this blend in the diffuser, they also have a whole line of cleaning products with Thieves,
I love the blend White Angelica as a protection blend of essential oils.
At this difficult time of fear and isolation I am practicing prayer & meditation as protection…..and of course…. a few Lysol wipes lol💛✨😃🍋
