Does how we live reflect who we want to be?

No matter how much we may not want to believe it, other people’s moods, opinions, thoughts and feelings impact us, and our moods, opinions, thoughts and feelings impact other people.


We’re all connected in so many ways—ways we can’t even see.

How can we avoid absorbing thoughts and feelings from other people so that we can stay true to our own? 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, 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.
