Irene, I followed your suggestions and could feel the wonder of the change occurring. I am a genuine empath, since birth, and my entire life I have often absorbed the energy of others, not because I choose to. Often the energy absorbed is not positive energy and needs to be removed from an empathetic person or we seem to lose ourselves. I have spent much time learning how to protect my own energy field. This exercise actually works. I have studied energy medicine and this meditation goes right along with all I have learned, hand in hand. Thank you so much for this swift and basically.effortless practice.
