Once we learn how to protect ourselves it becomes much easier to tell feelings in our bodies, thoughts or emotions belong to us or someone else. Often in our homes which is like one's sanctuary, our place of solitude we don't put up our walls or use our protection protocals. People come to our home and visit, friends, relatives, sales persons, delivery people, etc. I often will use herbs and flowers to cleanse my home and the surrounding area.
I'm no different than anyone else really. Last week I was feeling really out of sorts, felt confused and was having pains in my body that made no sense at all. I felt disturbed by the feelings I was having, not that they were bad but I was really struggling. After a couple days I asked my higher self, angels and guides if what was going on in my body was mine or someone else's. ( Really I don't know why I didn't consult myself earlier) Instantly I realized it wasn't mine. I still was concerned as it seemed as though it came on all of a sudden. Lucky for me I have a group of amazing women that are also healers, light-workers and just beautiful souls. I discussed what had been happening and they re-confirmed what I had just acknowledged the night before.
I had forgotten that I had other people come into my home that had not been there for a couple of weeks and it was one of the other individuals that was having all the issues I felt in my mind and body.
The reason I am sharing this, is that we all forget. We are attending the school of llife and every day is a new day. So if you notice your not feeling quite like yourself ask yourself "Is this mine? Does it Belong to me?". If the answer is that it is not yours ask for Assistance from your angels, guides or whom ever it is you work with to clear you of what isn't yours and that to send it to mother earth to recycle. I personally ask for assistance from Archangel Raphael as he is a healer and Archangel Michael as he is a protector for assistance as to remove that which does not belong to me and serve my highest good to be removed.
To go a step further I do not ask for it to be sent back to its owner as that can cause problems. We are all made up of energy and we can cause a shift by trying to return something as it doesn't serve that persons highest good.
I hope by sharing my experiences that it may help others along their path.
