BALL OF LIGHT TECHNIQUE
The Ball of Light: A Technique for Dealing with Negativity and Fear
“Only by bringing the Light exactly to where we are standing in life can we transform and evolve beyond.”
~Isabel Hickey, Astrologer~
Most would agree that these are pretty intense and chaotic times. It’s a challenge to stay positive and centered yet that is what is required to be of service and to spread the light that is available to us. Something that I constantly remind myself is that at a soul level I consented to be here now, at this Shift of the Ages. And in fact it is a privilege to be here…yet that doesn’t mean that this ever-changing environment we are in is easy.
In order to adjust to this new reality that seems to change almost daily we are currently in we need to find ways to stay present to our lives while also moving forward in the directions we want to go without getting discouraged by whatever is going on around us. Recently this has felt like an overwhelming and confusing task for many. Yet we each must find a way to regain center over and over again as needed…to discover or rediscover ways to restore internal order and to continue to hold onto hope.
During 2017 and into 2018 there are several major astrological influences that may generate an atmosphere of heightened worry, stress, turmoil and anxiety. It can be quite a challenge to control and manage such feelings or thoughts and return to a neutral place, let alone one that is positive and hopeful.
- Your rational mind runs wild and goes into panic or fear over something real or imagined.
- Repetitive negative thinking can also occur more frequently and be like a vicious loop that is really difficult to stop.
- Many of you may be quite sensitive and even psychic which may increase your vulnerability to such things. You may take in other people’s fearful thoughts or negative energy whether you are conscious of it or not. I refer to this as being a “psychic sponge.”
- Lastly grief and depression may be more pronounced than usual. Sometimes you may not even really know why you’re feeling such things (it can be related to events that originated long ago or even in a past life or from the collective consciousness).
Throughout each month’s AstroCurrent Monthly (ACM) I give keys and ideas for how to rise above and thus avoid the worry and stress. It si so helpful to know what is going on each month and have tangible things to do that will assist you in raising your vibration…and that’s what you’ll find on ACM.
(The Ball of Light Technique is an example of what you’ll find to help with the times we’re in and there is so much more!)
THE BALL OF LIGHT TECHNIQUE…
This technique is very helpful in managing difficult emotions, feelings and/or thoughts that arise during challenging times as it increases the light in your body.
- Do this in a place where you feel comfortable and won’t be disrupted.
- Breathe deeply for a while until you feel at least somewhat relaxed.
- Now imagine a clear ball about the size of a basketball floating gently towards you. With your right hand, reach out allowing it to land there.
- As you hold it before you, go over your body with your mind and take note of where you may be holding any fear, tension or negativity. As you find one, take your left hand and at an energetic level take it out of your body and place the fear or negativity into the ball. You needn’t be concerned with how this happens…simply trust that it is.
- Continue to go through your entire body gathering any energy that feels fearful, heavy or painful and place these into the ball.
- Now go to your mind and gather any negative thoughts or worries there and place them in the ball. These may be thoughts and concerns you are currently having or ones that come and go.
- You may notice that the ball is now growing darker…this is all right and is as it should be.
- After you have been doing this for a few minutes, continue to the next step. Rest assured that you can do this over and over until you feel clean and pure.
- Next, visualize that your crown chakra-just above your head-is opening and imagine that a great white light is slowly entering your body. You may notice that you immediately feel better and perhaps safer.
- Allow the light to move through you. As it does, you feel lighter with an increased sense of wellbeing.
- Next, hold out your left hand and see the light moving down your arm and into your hand. This may take a minute or two or it may happen almost instantly.
- Then project the light from your left hand into the ball your right hand is now holding and is filled with the negativity, pain and fear that was in your body.
- You then notice that the light is slowly overcoming the dark inside the ball…allow this to take as long as it feels necessary.
- And then, once the ball is filled with light, imagine that it is drifting away like a bubble.
- As it moves far above you, into the higher realms, it bursts and any negative energy that was held within now returns to the light and disperses there where it simply disappears. Remember that no darkness can exist in the Light.
You may do this as often as you like or feel the need to as it will strengthen the emotional and etheric body so that you won’t be as susceptible to negative energy, impressions, thoughts or feelings.
