So, what exactly do your skincare and energy protection routine have in common? More than you probably think.
At beauty school the first skincare routine you are taught is the basic 3-step routine that consists of:
In a nutshell…
- Cleansing removes the dirt and debris from the skin.
- Toning restores the skins ph balance and brings in the goodness.
- Moisturising, essentially seals all of that goodness in.
When it comes to practising energy wellness and protection, at the simplest level you want to do the exact same thing.
- Cleanse – Remove any negative or stagnant energy.
- Tone – This is where you restore and refill with the energy that you want to embody and radiate.
- Moisturise – You then seal in that “feel good” energy with a protection ritual, practice or tool.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU PRACTISING THIS 3-STEP ROUTINE?
If you are cleansing your skin daily – AM and PM. Then why not do the same with your energy?
As you go through your day you are interacting with people and life energetically. Exchanging energy. Absorbing energy. This is even happening as you scroll through Facebook and Instagram. Just think how much energy is being exchanged and absorbed there? LOADS! Some of the energy feels good. Some you don’t even notice. And sometimes the energy is just so dense that it literally drains you. Ever felt that way?
Therefore, practising this basic energy routine will be really beneficial in keeping your energy “fresh”. Also at a level where you:
- Feel good
- Feel energised
- Feel aligned
Which also supports you in being able to manifest, look good, feel good and slay your days.
If you are really sensitive to energy, eg: empath, then having an energy routine like this one could be an actual game changer.
It protects your energy.
It also helps you to become more aware of your energy and how the energy of different people, places and experiences effect you. As such, you can choose how you want to interact with them, if at all. Making it a really powerful way to own your energy. Rather than the energy of others and all around you, owning you.
WHAT TOOLS, RITUALS AND PRACTICES SHOULD I USE?
A lot of people tend to jump on the most popular energy protection tools. For example, Sage used to be mega popular for cleansing. So everybody started jumping on that. HOWEVER, not every tool, ritual or practice is effective for every person or situation. Which is why its important to choose what resonates with YOU.
When you’re choosing skincare products you consider your skin type, the ingredients and specific skin conditions. So, that the products you choose and use are right for YOUR skin. It’s a similar principle when selecting tools, rituals and practices for energy protection.
Choose tools, practices and rituals you feel guided too. Your own inner guidance, Angels and
Guides will lead you to what is most applicable to you at the right time. Trust that wisdom that comes from within.
Your environment plays a part too. If you live with others or need protection at work then lighting incense and wafting Sage around isn’t necessarily going to work. Whilst working with Spirit, crystals, intentional jewellery or prayer may be more effective.
Your own tastes, likes, dislikes and sensitivities. Incenses may not be your thing. Amethyst may not vibe with your energy. You may be sensitive to certain smells. Knowing yourself and honouring yourself will support you in making sound decisions about what to work with.
Also, keep in mind that things change. You change. Your energy changes. Therefore, you might need to adapt, tweak, add more or do less at different times. By being aware of your own energy you can begin to make the necessary changes rather than sticking rigidly to what worked in the past or what works for your friend.
Do what works for you and allow yourself to be intuitively guided.
I hope that this guide has given you some food for thought and helps you with taking care of your own energy.
