Imagine going through life with a protective layer of peace, where you are shielded from any negative energy. This practice can help you get started.
No matter how much we may not want to believe it, other people’s moods, opinions, thoughts and feelings impact us. Similarly, our moods, opinions, thoughts and feelings impact other people.
We’re all connected in so many ways—subtle ways we can’t even see.
Like a sponge, we may take in and absorb others’ emotions and opinions and make them our own, even when these things may not serve us.
How can we avoid absorbing thoughts and feelings from other people so that we can stay true to our ourselves? The practice below is one way.

Practice It: Imagine an Invisible Protective Sheath Around You
Visualize that you have a protective barrier surrounding your physical body. Just a few inches below the soles of your feet and above the crown of your head and all around your front body, back body and side body, this barrier protects you from negativity and things that may disrupt your inner peace.
Imagine going through life with this protection of peace acting as a shock absorber for anything you encounter that does not serve your highest good.
