The second line of defense for highly sensitive people and energy healers is to...
Discharging Negative Energy
As you know from other articles in this section, as a highly sensitive person you are vulnerable to taking on energy from people and energy fields around you.
These then feel like your own negativity. You will feel sick, or angry, or despairing, or exhausted -- thinking it's got something to do with you, when in fact you've just absorbed that negative energy like a sponge!
For your health and well-being, you must discharge this accumulated negative energy.
Think of it like dusting your soul... daily housecleaning for highly sensitive people.
How to Discharge Negative Energy
Start by entering sacred space. Meditation is the best way to do that, when you are discharging negative energy.Earth, Fire, and Water all have an innate ability to take negative energy and transform it into something beneficial. It's much the same as the way plant life takes in carbon dioxide, and changes it into good fresh oxygen.
So giving negative energy to these sources can't harm anything. In fact, it becomes the raw material for life-giving positive energy.
Do this as much as you need -- there's no such thing as too much discharging!
Most highly sensitive people will need this every day. If you are surrounded by things that are stressful or negatively charged, use it more often.
With practice, you will be able to discharge negative energy very quickly, no matter where you are. A shower is a great place, or standing under a tree or in the sunlight or moonlight works as well.
Clarifying Your Energy Field
Now that you have cleansed your energy field, you need to actively purify and strengthen your personal energy field.
The basic idea is twofold...
There are various ways to do this. One of the best ways I know to empower and positively-charge this energy boundary is using the Divine Light Invocation.
Or a simpler version of a Light visualizations . . . Imagine, and feel yourself being filled with Light. Imagine being radiant with light, like a temple shining out in the night. Feel and enjoy the great sense of well-being this gives.
You can do this one anywhere, at any time. It makes a good complement to the Divine Light Invocation.
Another incredibly helpful tool is the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP).
More practices specifically designed for this can be found in Karla McLaren's extremely helpful book and CD: Energetic Boundaries: Practical Protection and Renewal Skills for Healers, Therapists, and Sensitive People.
McLaren has an excellent grasp on the specific problems faced by highly sensitive people, and offers very effective tools to protect yourself.
This is the best resource I've ever found for protecting the energy fields of highly sensitive people and energy healers.
Just about any spiritual practice will help clarify your energy field to some extent. These are the ones I've found that are most specific, quickest, and most powerful for this.
