Many of us struggle on a day-to-day basis with separating ourselves from whatever negativity is floating around us. Moreover, the negativity isn’t always immediately noticeable to us, making it even harder to protect ourselves from it.
However, each and every one of us has the ability to cleanse and deflect the energy that doesn’t serve us or our day.
Below is a very short, informal meditation that can be used whenever you feel yourself getting overwhelmed. Feeling anxious? Try this meditation. Feeling angry at your computer? Do this meditation. Feeling overwhelmed with all the office gossip? Turn this meditation on. You get the gist. Bookmark this meditation for whenever you’re feeling a little off and need a reset.
How do you feel? What was your experience? I’d love to hear in your comments below!
One of the most common questions I get asked is this:
Do I have spirit guides?
Absolutely! Everyone has spirit guides (and totems).
“But how do I talk to them?”
Your spirit guides and totems are just like every other relationship in your life. It takes intention and effort to nurture the relationship and learn communication styles.
This meditation serves as an introduction to talking with your spirit guides and totems. It may take several tries before this process becomes easy for you, but practice makes perfect when it comes to receiving messages. They want to talk with you just as much as you want to talk with them.

Throughout your day, you’re likely taking in various sources of energy, and not all are healthy. They could be positive, such as joy, inspiration, and motivation, but they are often times negative, such as fear, worry, and stress. This is why it’s so important that you take time to clear your energy. It’s going to reduce your stress and anxiety, ease your mind, and make you feel all sorts of wonderful.
I’ve recorded my favorite meditation when I need a good clearing. And as an added bonus, this is a great meditation to do when you’re trying to fall asleep. So effective, in fact, that I often fall asleep well before it’s done if I decide to lay down instead of sitting in a chair.
So without further delay, here’s your all access pass to clearing your energy of everything you don’t need. Enjoy!
This week’s meditation is a quickie: just 10 minutes.
Before you try it out, we have to talk briefly about the concept of grounding yourself. Put really simply, being grounded means you are living firmly in the moment. Easy enough, right?
If you’re anything like me when I started my meditation practice, I was the farthest thing from grounded. I frequently misplaced things, I was always trying to multitask, I never felt completely rested, I often felt overstimulated from stress, and overall really drained by my life.
While there are many-a-things that can be done to go about remedying an ungrounded life, meditation is probably the easiest to implement right away. I’ve found that using earth element meditations have a profound and immediate effect.
This practice can be used anytime, especially before a lengthy meditation. I also loved using this at work, taking 10 minutes out of my day to ground myself. It did wonders for my stress level and productivity.
Try it once for yourself HERE. And let me know what you think below.
I hear all the time that people believe that meditations are used for one of two things: to be silent for a long time and for astral projection. While those things can certainly be accomplished with regular meditation, there are so many other uses and benefits.
This week’s meditation came to me via my brother, so I can’t take credit for finding it. However, it’s the most fun I’ve had doing a guided meditation and continues to be the one I use when I need to lighten up or decompress. Accordingly, this meditation can (and should) be used at any time you need a pick me up and have 20 minutes to spare.
For those of you that liked last week’s narrator, this meditation was created by the same individuals. The guided style is similar, and so is the accent.
The very first meditation I really got into (and finished!) is still my favorite: The Healing Temple, by TheHonestGuys. The first time I did this meditation, I saw one of my spirit animals for the first time. Other times, I’ll use it to get clarity on a big decision. Or I’ll just sit in the positive, healing energy and just be with whatever comes up. And bonus, the narrator’s accent is spectacular.
It keeps your mind occupied during the first half as you’re taken to a temple where all sorts of healing goodies are. You’ll be left with a soundscape in the temple for a good chunk of time, receiving whatever it is that you need in that moment. If you don’t need all the time provided, it’s perfectly acceptable to stop the meditation when you’ve had enough.
While there’s a lot of meditations that can be done at any point in the day, it’s been my experience that this particular meditation is most beneficial when you have plenty of time to relax. For me, that was either after I had dinner or a weekend morning. And remember, do your best to stay open to receiving whatever may come.
Allow me to give you the perfect excuse to take some much needed you time. For the next handful of minutes, we’re going to dedicate some serious TLC to our seven energy power houses, our chakras. This meditation can be used whenever you’re feeling drained or stressed, but is most effective when starting your day or before bed. I hope you love it as much as I do!
