Usually before you would complete today’s exercise, I’d invite you to bubble up and protect your energy. However, I’m not inviting you to do this as I want you to experience how this exercise impacts your energy.
Choose someone in your life who has a tendency to complain, someone who is negative person, and someone you can meet up with in person.
Get them to start talking by asking, “How are you?” or “What’s happening at the moment in your life?” or something similar, and then simply sit and nod as you listen to what they talk about.
Don’t speak, just listen and nod.
Where’s their focus? On themselves or on others? If it’s on others, is it really on others or how others impact them?
Do they tend to have a favourite theme around which they focus their attention?
And notice how your nodding is impacting them, does it encourage them to keep complaining, do you think?
Can you feel into their energy? If you can, how does it feel? And do you notice how your energy changes as they complain? How is their negativity impacting your vibration?
After about 10 minutes or so, find a way to politely end the conversation and walk away.
When you’re out of sight, perhaps at home or taking refuge in a nearby toilet, do an energy sweep to wipe away the negative energy that has attached itself to you from them.
To do this simply take your hand and sweep down your body, a few centimetres distance away from your skin, from your head to your feet.
When you reach your feet, flick your hands as if flicking away dirt. Make sure you’re not flicking your hands towards anybody nearby.
Repeat this sweeping and flicking motion until you’ve swept your whole body.
