I’m taking a quick break from creating a Reiki training manual for a course I’m teaching in a couple of weeks to write this. As I was preparing the manual I realized something. Growing up I always found myself picking up on energy however subtle. One thing I realized was how quickly I was able to pick up on negative energy and that a lot of negativity was drawn to me. It was something I didn’t understand and often felt guilty and confused about. I considered myself a good person and believed in light and love, why then would unwanted energy be drawn to me?
As I was writing the manual now, I just received the answer. Darkness is attracted to light. Imagine yourself in a dark stadium, even the smallest sliver of light is visible and you’ll likely find yourself gravitating towards it. I don’t fear the darkness because it’s not part of me and I’m not on that frequency. I have no reason to fear it because I’m Divinely protected. I have always called on the Divine for protection and it’s only now that I realize how Divinely protected I’ve been. Negative energy being drawn to me has never been about an unknown darkness within me but a light that shines so brightly other lights are attracted to it and darkness is drawn to it.
Today I’m more thankful than ever for Divine protection as I’ve received this sudden clarity. If you find darkness and negativity being attracted to you, I encourage you to protect yourself. Whether it be through prayer, meditation, crystals, or another method you feel comfortable using. Just because it’s attracted to your light, doesn’t mean you have to allow it in your presence. Now that this has been shared with you, you can continue on your journey of self-discovery to identify how you can call on Divine protection.
