Many of us are empaths who are accustomed to processing our environments and encounters by taking on those energies. This is taxing on our hearts and bodies, but mainly it leads to the challenge of not being able to distinguish what is your energy and what is not. The solution is in sequencing. Start your day with an angel and a prayer. Simply say “Thank you, Archangel Michael for being with me throughout this day. Thank you for clearing and shielding my energy. Thank you for surrounding me with 20 feet [or meters] of white light. Thank you for all my encounters being loving, kind and expansive. Thank you for this peaceful planet. Thank you.” Then feel how big 20 feet are. You go through your day noticing people who are in your 20 feel of light, be they your child, a co-worker or a stranger, and notice their energy without taking it on. You begin to distinguish what is your energy and what is not. With your energy established through your morning intention, you can be free of the energetic influence of others.
