Imagine a protective sphere that keeps in positive energy, releasing what we do not need.

This guided visualization helps to release negative energy or any other energetic residue that doesn’t belong to you—anything from an overly critical family member to the stressful news cycle. We will imagine a protective sphere that keeps in positive energy and releases what is unwelcome. This meditation is excellent if you are feeling exhausted, especially if you are a caregiver, have a friend or family member going through something difficult, or if you just feel like you need to retreat from the chaos of the outside world.
