I wish someone would have told me what I am about to tell you when I was your age.
We are more than flesh and bones. We are energy. We are electrical beings. Every time we engage with someone, even if we are just passing someone by on the streets, we mix energies. Think about it. You are in a concert filled with hundreds of fans. The energy is hype! Everyone is jumping on beat, fists pumping, head bopping! Everyone’s energy in that space is mixing with the other causing everyone to vibrate at the same level.
Do you notice how our energy expands outside of our body? Our energy is not locked up inside the flesh, it radiates from the inside out. Making it very easy for other energies to touch our energy.
Why is this important?
is real. If you lay with someone that has negative tendencies (think: anger, extreme jealousy, controlling, verbally abusive) those low-vibrational feelings will attach to you and that can lead to a lot of INTERNAL and EXTERNAL chaos.
If you sleep with more than one person back-to-back you will have doubled the amount of someone else’s energy in your system. You will feel imbalanced.
Have you ever spent time with someone that made you feel anxious?
Do you have one friend that makes you feel happy and light, and another friend that makes you feel sad or angry whenever you’re hanging out with them?
Do you find yourself gossiping more when you are with certain friends than with others?
Have you ever gone to a store and came across a cashier with an attitude and all of sudden now you have an attitude?
Have you ever hung out with someone that curses a lot and the next thing you know you are cursing more than usual?
THIS IS HOW EASY IT IS TO MIX AND ALLOW NEGATIVITY INTO YOUR EXISTENCE
Into your body
Protect your soul
Protect your energy
not everyone is worthy of it
