Rainbow Clearing Process

This two-step process can be used to clear yourself of energy that is not yours. I use it after a session with a client so that I am clear for my next client. I use it whenever I’ve been in a large gathering, whenever I feel an emotion that seems to come “out of the blue” or whenever I feel tired for no apparent reason.

The purpose of the process is to get yourself back into your own energy. Anyone who works with the public (i.e., a bartender, a hair stylist, a receptionist, a teacher, a banker, a retail clerk, a cashier, a nurse, a doctor, a therapist, a healer, etc.) naturally takes on energy from others. It is, therefore, important to have an easy and effective way to clear out energy that is not your own. This is a very simple process that takes just seconds to do.

Step 1: Close your eyes and visualize a rainbow-colored shaft of light coming out of the sky into the top of your head. Now, in your mind’s eye, see that rainbow light spreading throughout your body, filling every cell with rainbow light. Feel it filling your head and moving down through your neck and shoulders, down your arms and out your finger tips. Feel it filling your chest, stomach and abdomen and all your internal organs. Feel it moving down into your hips, legs and feet until rainbow light is coming out of your toes. Your whole body is now radiating rainbow light. See it! Feel it! (This may take a minute or two in the beginning to visualize, but as your body gets acquainted with the process, soon it will take only a few seconds to fill yourself with rainbow light.)

Step 2: Choose for yourself a symbol of safety and protection – a safety shield – and surround yourself with it. Your shield can be anything – a powerful animal, an angel, a geometrical shape such as a pyramid or a sphere – any symbol that represents to you safety and protection.

See yourself inside your symbol – it is all around you. With your shield in place, you are now protected from taking on energy that is not yours.
