This is a basic grounding visualization which works really well. The first couple of times you do it with your child it is beneficial to read it slowly so they can have the time to process your words and experience the energy. After those few times you will find they will be able to do this quickly. These short meditations are great to do with your children in the morning and after they return home from school.
Close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth. Allow your body and mind to relax.
Feel, see, sense or know that white light energy is coming down from the Universe and into your Crown Chakra (top of the head) moving throughout your head and Third Eye Chakra, down your neck where your Throat Chakra is, into your chest and your Heart Chakra, down your arms, into your hands, into your fingers.
The white light energy continues down your chest into the trunk of your body where your Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakras are, out of your Root Chakra at the base of your spine and down your legs, into your feet and toes. The energy leaves your body through the soles of your feet.
When the white light energy touches the Earth it spreads like tree roots, moving deep and wide into the Earth. You are connected to the Earth, you are safe, you are grounded, not stuck, you are still able to move when you need to.
Take as many deep breaths as you need feeling, seeing, sensing or knowing that the energy continues to flow down into your Crown Chakra, through your entire body and out your feet.
When you feel ready take one more deep breath and begin to feel, see, sense or just know that the Earth is giving energy to you. This energy can be any colour that you intuitively feel, see, sense or just know.
The Earth energy moves up your tree roots into the soles of your feet. Up through your feet into your legs, up your legs into the trunk of your body, your chest, down your arms and into your hands and fingers. The Earth energy moves up your throat and into your head filling it up and moving out through your Crown Chakra at the top of your head.
For shielding we are going to do the grounding meditation first and then we are going to add on to it…
Once you have completed your grounding take a few deep breaths. Feel your connection to the Universe and to the Earth. As you are breathing feel the energies moving down through you to the Earth and up through you to the Universe.
Next we are going to create an energetic shield around you, this is to keep out the bad and negative energies and only allow the good love energies to move in and out. You may think of this as a fine mesh filter or a special force field protecting you.
Feel, see, sense or just know that the white light energy is coming down into your Crown Chakra and the coloured Earth energy is coming up from your feet.
The energies will meet in your Heart Chakra and Solar Plexus Chakra and the move together like a dance in a figure eight pattern between the Heart and Solar Plexus Chakras.
They may turn into a new colour (gold, silver or pink)
Next feel, see, sense or know that the new energy will leave your body and be projected through your Heart and Solar Plexus Chakras in front and behind your body.
The energy moves all around you, it completely surrounds you in this coloured light energy.
It is your safe space. It keeps out any and all energies that are not for your highest good. The energy filter/shield/force field can move as far out and create as big of a space that you need. It can be as solid or as flexible as you need it to be. It may turn different colours.
This will help keep you from picking up other people’s negative energy and letting it come within your own space and energy.
For Children who need help in releasing anything they have picked up during the day a little meditation for Chakra clearing is good. Simply do the grounding meditation but as the energy reaches the mentioned Chakra have the child see, feel, sense or know the colour of that particular Chakra. Do this on the way down and on the way up. Children are so great at being able to release negative energies that just by them focusing on the colour that Chakra is suppose to be it automatically clears it for them. Occasionally more helpwill be needed but most often its a quick and effortless process.
Other helpful tools:
In addition, carrying or wearing Crystals can help with the tangible reminder and energetically enhance and help hold that energy field they have created. Nuummite, Shungite, Hypersthyne, Black Tourmaline and Hematite, are all really good. Let your child use their intuition to choose which one is right for them.
Smudging is another great tool. Used for thousands of years by First Nations people the traditional herbs of Sage, Cedar and Sweetgrass are burned to release and clear negative energies, protect the person and space and welcome in good energies. We also make a Sacred Smudge Spray that incorporates the essential oils of traditional smudging along with the energy from crystals into a convenient and powerful spray.
Sound is incredibly healing having bells, crystal or singing bowls, chanting etc can help shift and clear energy too.
