Welcome to the rollercoaster of the ascension process from 3D to 5D!

If you're reading this, chances are you're on a thrilling ride of personal and spiritual growth, feeling the highs and lows of this extraordinary journey. The thrill of awakening, the rush of expanding awareness—it's exhilarating, to say the least.

But here's the thing—as exciting as this ride can be, it's crucial to put in the work and protect your energy to ensure you're not spiritually derailed.


Simply put, the quality and vibration of your energy are the main things that help you navigate the ascension process successfully. They allow you to flow with the changes rather than get tossed around by them.

Your energy frequency determines how smoothly you'll transition from one level of consciousness to another (or if at all), ensuring you don't just ride the wave but truly embody the higher dimensions you're moving towards.

Why is Energy Protection Important in the Ascension Process?

1. Enhances Spiritual Growth

Safeguarding your energy is like taking care of your spiritual garden. It creates an environment where insights bloom, mindfulness flourishes, and personal evolution accelerates.

Spiritual knowledge needs an undisturbed, high vibe to be able to flow through you and help you heal, grow, and enlighten.

If you block out high vibrational spiritual awareness with low vibrational 3D energy, you'll condemn yourself to an endless cycle of fear, sickness, pain, and division. Everything your soul is trying to outgrow.

Your soul is here to ascend, to move from "power over you" to the "power of love." Your soul is not here to stand still because you might fear change and healing.

Deep down, you know it to be true.

So, allow yourself to believe that there is a better life for you out there, and start your day not with a frantic search for your phone but with a serene meditation session. This simple practice can act as a protective energy shield, keeping the good vibes in and the bad vibes out, making sure you're on track with your soul's desires for expansion and spiritual awakening.

2. Prevents Energy Drain

Have you ever felt like a smartphone running on 2% battery?

That's what negative energies do to you. They're like those pesky apps running in the background, draining your light and juice. Without that full battery, you are unable to push out the negativity, fear, and mind control society regularly pushes on you.

Try grounding exercises, like walking barefoot on grass or hugging a tree (yes, be that person). 

It reconnects you to Earth's natural energy, recharging your spiritual batteries. And there's no better healer and energy restorer than Mama Earth!

3. Improves Mental Health

Protecting your energy also means setting boundaries so solid they'd make a medieval fortress jealous.

Have you ever agreed to plans only to end up wondering why you're not at home in your pajamas? That's a boundary issue.

Learning to say no is not selfish. It's essential self-care that keeps you from overextending and facing burnout.

Most of our troubles in life start from going against our gut feeling and saying yes to something we should have said no to. Or someone.

Not setting boundaries can set you back on your spiritual journey for years to come.

That creates a deep feeling of being stuck in life, which in turn contributes to sadness, fear, anxiety, melancholia, depression, and all sorts of sensations you deem negative.

But, at the end of the day, this is your soul simply trying to bring your attention to the fact that you are not being true to yourself.

So, stop being a people-pleaser and learn to say no!

For your own good, the good of your loved ones, and society as a whole. 

4. Boosts Physical Health

Your body is the temple of your soul, and how you treat it can significantly impact your energy levels.

Engaging in joyful physical activities not only clears energy blockages from your chakras and energetic body but also sends your vitality through the roof. It makes your energy move and flow so you can grow on every level of your existence as intended.

Whether it's dancing like nobody's watching, taking brisk walks, or practicing yoga, find what makes your soul sing.

5. Strengthens Intuition

Lastly, a protected energy field is like having the ultimate spiritual antenna. It enhances your ability to tune into your intuition amid the chaotic frequencies of daily life and receive guidance from your spiritual team and the Universe 24/7.

Imagine never getting anxious because you can trust the Universe with all your heart to guide you through your everyday challenges with calm and ease?! 

Five Simple Everyday Practices for Energy Protection

1. Energy Cleansing Practices

Keeping your energy clean is like daily hygiene but for your soul. Smudging with sage or taking salt baths can wash away the energetic debris of the day. Even ringing a bell in your space can disrupt stagnant energy, creating room for fresh vibes.

My personal favorite is allowing water to wash away all the negative energies of the day while taking a shower. Then I imagine cutting every energetic bond that is no longer for my highest good with gratitude and love and inviting all my energy back to me with the help of Mother Earth, my guides, and the Universe.

2. Visualization Techniques

Visualization is not just for manifesting your dream vacation.

It's an amazing tool for energy protection.

Picture a shimmering shield of light surrounding you, removing negativity with the help of your celestial team. This mental image alone offers you significant protection throughout the day.

Always follow your own intuition. Sometimes, you may need more than a protective light shield. Your guides may connect you to the Earth or the Universe, change the color of the energy, or work on specific areas of your body to ensure you are healed and uplifted in the best way possible.

3. Crystal Healing

Crystals aren't just pretty rocks to hoard in your home and enjoy their sparkle (yes, also me!).

They're incredible helpers connecting us to the higher energies we need on our spiritual awakening journey.

Smoky Quartz, for example, is renowned for its protective qualities. It acts as an energetic bodyguard against negativity. Keep one in your pocket or under your pillow for peace of mind.

Always go for a crystal that catches your eye and connects with you. If you allow a crystal to choose you, you may gain much more insight into what areas of your life need your attention and healing.

4. Dietary Considerations

You are what you eat, and this couldn't be truer when it comes to your energy. High-vibrational foods are essentially plant-based, organic, and full of life energy.

Consuming foods and drinks that vibrate higher will help cleanse your aura and keep your energy body healthy and vibing.

Think of them as the detox smoothie for your soul.

Even small changes, like eliminating white sugar, salt, and flour from your daily diet, will have a tremendously positive effect on your health!

From my own personal experience - removing gluten from my daily diet put an end to a 6-month period of excruciating migraines that doctors couldn't figure out.

5. Digital Detox

In our hyper-connected world, taking a break from digital devices can be unimaginable but will be revolutionary for your body, mind, and soul.

A digital detox helps recharge your mental and emotional batteries, making you less susceptible to energy drains.

There is no better way for the negative aspects of our society to gain control over you and make you physically and mentally sick than our digital news, for example.

A person living in constant fear of something or someone is very easily controlled, manipulated, and prone to disease, addictions, and violence. You become a perfect revenue source for the richest of the rich on this planet.

Go to nature or take the time to finally finish that book collecting dust on your nightstand.

Allow your imagination to reawaken so you can finally see that there truly is a better way for you and humanity to exist than this low vibrational 3D ruled by the ego we currently inhabit.

Wrapping It Up

Navigating the ascension process without protecting your energy is like skydiving without a parachute – definitely not a great idea.

Bringing these practices into your daily life will ensure a smoother, more mindful, joyous, and serene spiritual journey.

Remember, your energy is sacred and forms a foundation for your well-being on every level of your existence.

Please treat it with the love and care it deserves, and watch as your life transforms as you slowly move from sadness to joy, from fear to love, and from 3D to 5D.

Happy ascending!
