If you are a highly sensitive person chances are you can’t help but be aware of and affected by energies, noise, emotional “static” when you’re out in the world.
A little more about it this meditation:
The Blue Bubble Visualization is such a simple and game-changing tool for managing your energy and the energies around you. I learned from my teacher, who learned it from one of her teachers. Like a game of Telephone, this blue bubble tool has evolved over time with variations and adaptations I’ve woven into it as I’ve presented it, explained it, guided various people through it.
This visualization can be a wonderful timeout and way to settle and quiet your nervous system down. It is also an introduction to using the tool itself as an energetic field or shield available on demand that you can pop up, turn on, expand, engage as needed wherever, whenever you needed.
It can be a really powerful yet simple tool to help highly sensitive folks create an energetic buffer zone around them to limit input, stress and overstimulation. It can also be very empowering to realize you can set energetic boundaries and make adjustments to what amount of stimulus is “getting in” to your energetic sphere. You can also adjust what you are putting out, but that will be a different post.
One note in general about “visualizations” – they are not necessarily visual for everyone. We all perceive, receive, imagine in our own ways. You may see images as I lead you through this meditation, the sense of expansion and quiet may be more connected to your hearing. You may find new or different thoughts coming up, or old thoughts leaving or less thinking “traffic” overall. You may just listen and not notice any of those things. The experience is unique for each person and I encourage you to make it so. If you don’t like blue – make it a different color. If the idea of a bubble doesn’t quite gel for you – make something up that does.
It doesn’t matter what it is so much as it matters that it suits you, feels right and works.
I hope you find it as helpful as it has been for me and many of my students. I’d love to hear how it goes for you. You can comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
