Protection meditation is a spiritual practice that brings together techniques of concentration, relaxation and visualization, with the aim of creating barriers of psychic energy, which prevent the advance of negativity. As a means of safeguarding energy protection, meditation is part of holistic healing systems and different spiritual currents. However, it is not essential to profess a certain religious belief to practice protective meditation, it is only necessary to have confidence in the results of the procedure.
During visualization, which accompanies protective meditation, the individual can focus his attention on the divinity of his devotion, on the force of Nature, on the Universe or on the connection with his inner self.
One of the main advantages of protective meditation is that it is a simple and practical method that can be performed at any time or place. Every spiritual flow has its norms to work on protective meditation, some techniques can be more difficult than others or focus on aspects such as contact with the divine.
In general, the sequence of the exercise has the following order: relaxation, visualization and concentration. You can practice sitting or standing, with your eyes closed or open.
However, beginners are advised to start protecting meditation exercises, sitting and with their eyes closed, to facilitate concentration and relaxation. To start the practice of protective meditation, sit in a place that is not disturbed (it can be on the floor or in a chair, the important thing is that you feel comfortable during the exercise).
Put your hands on your knees or thighs, close your eyes and start breathing slowly, focusing on your breathing. Let the thoughts pass without focusing on them.
Once you reach the state of relaxation, begin to visualize the formation of a sphere of light around you that completely surrounds you from head to toe.
Generally, the display corresponds to a white light, but you can add a color that represents protection for you or makes you feel safe and secure.
When the sphere is complete, focus your attention on the recreated figure, visualize it always brighter and more solid, capable of resisting the possible intrusion of any kind of negativity.
Consolidate the image, turn your attention to the breath and visualize how the brightness of the sphere is absorbed by each inspiration, infusing its power. Once the sphere has dissolved, slowly open your eyes and return to your usual tasks.
Practice the exercise whenever you need to strengthen your safety or feel surrounded by negativity (gossip, envy). Over time, you can perform protection meditation at any time and even project the ball of light on your loved ones you want to protect.
