Is someone poking your Zen Bubble? If so, give yourself permission to simply declare that your Zen Bubble is yours and others are not allowed to poke on it, squeeze it, stomp on it or push it into a corner — it is yours to protect at all costs. Inside that Zen Bubble is the home to your mind, body and spirit which are designed to work together harmoniously as long as there are no interferences from within or from outside influences.
The Zen Bubble is the energy field or aura that surrounds each one of us both individually and collectively when connected as a family, a team, a class, or as united spectators at a concert or sporting event. It tends to extend farther in front and above us and is always changing based on our personal thoughts and emotions, as well as those around us. It can’t be seen by most, but it is measurable and able to be photographed with special Kirlian Photography. Our physical health and well being is often a reflection of what is happening in the field around us. When we are surrounded with love and support, our field can be intertwined with the cohesive positive energy of love and we feel good. Conversely, when in the presence of discontent and upset, the field gets compressed, giving us feelings of anxiety, agitation, tension or “nervous stomach.”
The auric field is highly sensitive to its surroundings. For example, have you ever been at a function where a stranger enters and for no obvious reason you are instantly drawn to that person? They have an attractive energy field that connects to yours and pulls you in. The opposite can be true when you enter a space where an argument has just occurred or for no apparent reason, you just get the weebie jeebies. Your field is immediately squeezed and repelling you from the perceived “danger” it senses. Other examples of your field sending a message to respond before your mind or body is even aware occur when you are walking in the woods and instinctively put your hand up to push away a branch that you sensed before you saw. Or when you have the music cranked up while busy on a project but are able to sense that someone walked in the room even though you didn’t hear them.
In many of the classes I teach, I use a pair of wire hangers to demonstrate a person’s energy field first just being themselves, then thinking about something that frustrates them and finally thinking about something that brings them joy. The field changes instantaneously, compressing for negative patterns and expanding for positive ones. When you begin to tune in, you can actually feel other people’s energy field by the signals in your own body. Do you feel open or tight around the heart/chest area? Are you able to speak with ease or suddenly get a frog in your throat?
To show how others affect our field, again using the wire hangers, I have one person think of a goal and show the edges of the field. Then one group will stand with the individual and think “I support you.” Then the next group exchanges the space and are instructed to think about something that frustrated them that morning. The edges of the field will exponentially expand or contract depending on positive or negative support demonstrating how others can either bring us down, or lift us up depending on their field in that moment.
So, next time someone is messing with your Zen Bubble, simply breathe deeply and, if possible, move on. If not, put on your “Love Shield” by just thinking the word “love” from your heart. You don’t have to send the person love, you are simply expanding your field in an effort to have the other person move on or shift their energy. Give it a try.
Live Well … Have Fun!
