I had a client ask me a question the other day and wanted to get your input. She is participating in my Lunar Repatterning Proxy Group, and expressed concern that the “energy of the group” would affect her negatively while she was on vacation. She was worried that she was going to “take on” the problems of others in the group. I explained that we set a very clear intention with this work that the shifts that take place are for the highest good of the group, and of all concerned, and that we only process those shifts our system needs. It is not in her highest good, or anyone’s really, to “work on” problems that belong to others!
I am wondering if you want to expand on this at all? It seems to be a concern others have…that they are “sensitive” to others’ energies, and that they are in some way more affected than others. I believe we are all connected and all one, and we do not need to take on things that are not a part of our journey. Just wondering what you think?
Hi Dear Beth,
Thank you for this wonderful question. My understanding and experience has been that in group work and particularly in proxy groups, each person’s higher self sorts out every kind of energetic input so that each individual receives exactly and only what is needed for them.
Additionally, if a person is experiencing “taking on” of others’ energies, I would strongly suggest that they learn and practice doing “Zip- Ups” on a regular basis.
For those who do not know what thee are, you place one of your hands, flat, in front of your body, starting in the center of the body at the top of the pubic bone. Bring the hand up to the indentation between the chin and the lips. Pause. When repeating the movement, move the hand to the side and then down so as not to “un-zip” the energy.
This simple technique pulls up the energy of all the meridians in the front of the body and “insulates” the person so they can easily be in their own center no matter what is going on around them.
Also, I would suggest teaching them to connect with their tenth chakra, two to three feet below the bottom of their feet, again so that they are impervious to the pulls of other energy and are strongly grounded in the earth.
More information on the tenth chakra can be found on this blog in the book review of Cyndi Dale’s Chakra book and in the discussion of what happened in Group in December 2010.
If anyone else has some ideas about Beth’s question, please leave your comments.
