Have you ever felt drained and depleted of your energy after having a conversation with someone? What about getting a weird vibe after being introduced to someone? We all have experienced these intense moments before. The key to successfully dealing with any situation that can potentially suck your life force energy is to create healthy energetic boundaries for yourself. What does this mean?
As humans, we have a bio-magnetic field around our physical body that is otherwise known as our auric field. This field is our personal signature of our energetic vibration. It is also the storehouse for energy that one would want to give during daily interactions with others. If one’s auric field is weak, not only are they susceptible to picking up foreign energy from others, but also they have less energy to give and the rate of depletion of energy is high.
A healthy looking auric field looks like a smooth, egg shape energy, which extends 2-3 feet in every direction outside the body. Someone who is experiencing a sense of fearfulness or a sense of separation from everyone will have an auric field that tends to be contracted and close to their body, like a foot away. On the other hand, if someone hasn’t fully anchored their consciousness into their body, tends to feel spaced out and not in the present moment, then it is likely that their auric field extends anywhere from 5-20 feet.
Neither scenarios are good as the former means that one does not actively connect and share energy with others, becomes a hermit and may indulge in depressive, manic behaviors. The latter means that the aura becomes very open to picking up and storing emotions, pain and thoughts from others. In this case, if one repeatedly allows the energy of intense stress, trauma, depression and abuse into their field, they can create holes in the field making them even more susceptible to energy that is not their own.
