I was inspired to write about this today because many of you in my online community have expressed how you have felt tired, run down and overwhelmed lately.
You are likely highly sensitive and empathic. This is a blessing and a gift, but it can also mean that you often feel drained when around groups of people, when you are on a computer for too long, or from watching the news, etc.
I wanted to share a simple meditative prayer for protection that I use nearly every day. Working with the golden ray of light and Archangel Michael brings in strong protective powers. This is not only good for physical protection but is essential in protecting yourself from other people drawing on your subtle energy body (aura and chakras) and your spiritual power.
This is a quick meditation that you could do each morning before starting your day. You’ll feel surrounded and protected by golden healing light. And you’ll be uplifted and resilient to the lower energies around you.
Steps for the Meditative Prayer for Protection
(adapted from Communing With the Divine by Barbara Martin and Dimitri Moraitis)
To begin, choose a quiet place to do the meditation. You’ll want a place away from noise and any distractions.
Reflect upon what it is you are requesting from the Divine (in this case, protection).
Begin by sitting in a chair or on a sofa with your feet flat on the floor and your back straight.In this type of meditation, it’s not recommended to have your legs crossed. The energy will be coming down from your Higher Self above your head and flowing through you so you don’t want to inhibit the flow of energy in any way.
Try to relax, yet remain alert and awake.
Take a few deep clearing breaths in and out.
Gently close your eyes.
Imagine the Divine showering you with beautiful protective light.
Now put your attention on your Higher Self point (some refer to this as the 8th chakra) about 2 ft. above your head.
See this point as a radiant golden sun comprised of all the colors of the rainbow.
As you place your attention on your Higher Self point, let go of all your earthly worries and concerns. You’re in a sacred space now and you want to feel completely connected with the divine.
As you place attention on your Higher Self point, feel it pulsating with light and power.
As you put your attention on this point, recite this invocation aloud:
Heavenly Father/Holy Mother God, I raise my consciousness into Thy consciousness where I become One with Thee. I ask to receive that which I need and that which I need to know now.
Now feel the union with the divine in your Higher Self point. Feel this connection between you and the Holy Ones to God and the Oneness of all life.
Now, in the following prayer, you will be making a request to Archangel Michael to bring in the spiritual power of the golden ray.
If you are sincere with pure intentions, divine support will be there and this mediation will be a blessed experience.
Recite this prayer aloud:
Heavenly Father/Holy Mother God, down-ray unto me under the direction of Archangel Michael and the angels of protection and the bodyguards the golden ray of protective light. May it surround my aura seven times in a gold bubble of protection. May I be strong to affirm this protective power in all facets of my life.
Envision the beautiful power of the golden light ray flowing from the divine source to your higher self-point. See this point activated in a bright, burst of light.
Then from the Higher Self Point, envision this light showering you like a waterfall of light. It bathes your entire aura, your body, your chakra points- all levels of your thinking, speaking, activities, actions, and feeling.
Give permission for this light to touch every part of you.
Hold still to feel the light blessing you. Now envision the light circling around your aura with seven layers of protective light.
As you do this, feel the closeness and connection with Archangel Michael. He is right here with you, loving, supporting, and protecting you.
Tune into his God-filled presence. His presence empowers you and fills you with divine love. Your compassion expands. You feel boundless in your spiritual expression. You know in your heart that with God and Archangel Michael you are protected from any negative energies.
You can go about your day feeling safe and secure. Any lower energies from people around you will not be able to penetrate your golden protective bubble. These energies will fall away like water off a duck’s back.
In finishing this meditation, express gratitude to the divine and Archangel Michael for what you received.
Gently open your eyes and come to back to the physical space you are in.
You should feel refreshed and grounded. Once you open up to receiving the help and guidance of angelic beings, including your own guardian angels, you fill find that your life is more in flow.
By connecting with your Higher Self in this way, you will be able to obtain guidance from the Divine. This encourages pleasant, peaceful feelings and a stronger sense of happiness in your daily life.
This is just one example of a meditative prayer to help you feel safe and protected, both physically and energetically, throughout your day. I highly encourage you to make this a part of your daily spiritual practice.
You should regularly connect with your Higher Self to obtain information from the Divine regarding any other area of your life, including relationships, your job, or finances, etc. If you do, I can almost guarantee that you will find a deep sense of inner peace and tranquility.
In addition to working with the divine and angels for energetic protection, I also always carry or wear various crystals. Some of my favorites for protecting my energy field are: black tourmaline, labradorite, aqua aura quartz, agate, and smoky quartz. I keep a large piece of black tourmaline on my desk as it really helps transmute the negative energy of EMF's from my computer!
