Chances are that by this point in your life, you have had at least one moment in which you found yourself praying for safety or protection. It is natural to take steps to protect your home, your car, and your things. We all know people who have been robbed, abused, or hurt in some way. We come into our homes and lock our doors; we lock our cars; we alarm our houses. It seems like we are less safe than we ever have been. We ask may ourselves, “Is there anything we can do to ensure our safety?” Well, I have an answer, but chances are you aren’t going to like it. My suggestions may even seem preposterous. Energetically speaking, the best thing you can do to ensure your safety is assume that you are safe in the first place.
I am an Energy Healer, so I work with universal laws to help align your energy in order to create a life that matches your dreams. Universal energy laws often feel counter-intuitive to what makes sense in the world. As A Course in Miracles states, “In my defenselessness my safety lies.” Now, what does this mean? It means that, energetically speaking, defense is simply another form of attack. So, instead of building a wall and gathering arms, the best thing that you can do to protect yourself is know in your soul that you are safe, that no one can harm you, and that “every little thing will be alright.” I remember teaching this particular rule to a woman once, and she called me “Kumbaya” and “crazy,” but it is not crazy. Energy only moves in one direction. It moves forward, and it gains momentum as it moves. Our “energy body” is always putting out an “energy broadcast,” and this energy broadcast is attractive and creative. Your energy body is the sum of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual thoughts, feelings and beliefs. If you believe that you are unsafe, and you feel unsafe, there is not enough ammunition or a big enough wall on Earth to protect you. Why? Because you attract what you feel and believe. Unless you change the way you feel, your energy body will attract experiences that match your beliefs, and the world will continue to appear to be unsafe.
I know that it is hard to grasp the concept that our beliefs and feelings play a role in our safety and protection. It seems that to believe this would be to let our guard down and invite attack, yet I see examples of this all the time. I knew this woman who used to let her young children wander around at our children’s sporting events. People were always shocked that nothing bad ever seemed to happen to her children, but I understood why they were always okay. They were okay because she assumed that they would be. She assumed that the other mothers would pitch in and keep an eye on them, and we did. They may have complained about it behind her back, but in the end, they made sure the 18-month old did not stumble onto the ball field or get hit by a swing. It always worked out. That is how confident you must be about your safety. It is hard to imagine that thoughts are so powerful, but it is true, whether you believe it or not.
A client recently asked me if her daughter was going to be safe in something that she was going through. My answer was, as it always is, “well, do you want her to be safe?” She responded, “Of course I do, but just because I want something doesn’t mean it’s going to happen!” However, if she expected her daughter would be safe, she would be, and universal law backs this up. Abraham-Hicks’ book, The Law of Attraction, identifies the Second Law of Attraction as the “Science of Deliberate Creation.” According to this universal law, anything that you think about, believe, and expect to be true is true. So, if my client were to spend time appreciating the safety and protection of her daughter, and expect it to all work out, it would all work out. Oftentimes, we do not do this because it feels like we are letting our guard down. It feels like we would lose our safety and protection, but this is what we must do in order to attract what we want instead of what we fear.
Of course there are action steps you can take to ensure your safety, but the first step is aligning your energy with what you want to create. This way, any step you take will be effective in reaching your desired outcome. Once you know you are safe, you may build a wall to reflect your state of being, but you will do so out of the energy of feeling safe, not feeling fear. You also may not feel the need to build a wall at all. Once your motivation and intent is in alignment with your desire, you are in the process of reaching that desire.
Belief is powerful and attractive. The best way to protect yourself is to believe you are already protected. There are countless examples of people who are safe and things do work out for them. The more you can focus on these, believe in these and expect the same success for yourself, the more you line up your energy with protection and become safe.
