I am not completely new to meditation but I have been doing a lot more of silent meditations. I just recently starting learning more of grounding and centering techniques. When I center myself I imagine all of my negativity being released. As of lately I have been feeling a little more negative than positive. Is it possible that I should of kept some negativity like how they say to be balanced? Or could it just I'm not centering right? If I am imbalanced how can I balance myself again if I have more positive than negative? Thank you ahead of time and blessed be.
Centering is not the release of negative energy. Centering is the returning of pretty much all the scattered energy you have to the center of yourself. It is the recognizing that you are here right now in this moment. Returning the energy to the core of your being. At least in my experience.
You could imagine yourself getting rid negative energy and gaining positive energy through grounding. Grounding is where you can gain extra energy from the universe to aid you and help you in your spell work. It also builds awareness and stability. Centering is when you center yourself and brings yourself together to unlock the power which is inside all of us. Grounding and Centering are two things that are able to help you when and after you get started with your magical workings. It is important that we learn them but that is your choice to do so or not.
It is possible that you released the negativity out of your body and your mind but it is still surrounding you because you did not banish it or you did not ground properly. It is causing you not to feel stable.
It could also be because of you not cleansing your chakras. Chakras are energy points. They can relate to our personality, how good our energy is, and much more. You chakras can leak, they can be blocked, they can be overactive, or they can be underactive. We are born with our chakras open. We just need to balance them. The more balanced our chakras are, the better energy we have. The better energy we have, the better our lifestyles will be. You can find methods on how to cleanse your chakras on YouTube, Google, and even articles on here.
It could also be the negativity from others in your environment. There could be other reasons but I believe more on the lines of what I stated above.
Magick Witch: how would I be able to ground properly and banish my negativity? Also how could I clear my chakras the best way? i know that some of mine are open and acting well and others are there but I can feel them struggling at times to function. This will all help me real greatly. Also I had about 3 friends trying to commit suicide and they all came to me and i had to stop them from moving forward. Luckily they listened and are now doing ok. Could there energy just have clinged on to me? If so would I have to cleanse myself?
Kritikos: I meant in a way when i center i visualize this white ball spinning in the middle of me. As it spins it collects all the negativity from me. all at the same time i visualize roots coming out from me and into the core of the earth and connecting. Once i feel the ball has collected all negativity i visualize this ball going down the roots into the core to be destroyed. as it gets destroyed i visualize the core returning new energy to me. I am still new with this.
You also need to be aware of your breathing. You have to take a cleansing breathe first and then do controled breathing. Sometimes we hold our breath and dont even know it when we are concentrating and that causes our hearts to race and dizziness and weakness. It takes practice. Just be aware of your breathing, thats the first step in learning to control it so you can focus inward as well as outward and answer these questions for yourself.
1.> How would I be able to ground properly and banish my negativity?
Answer: There are different techniques out there. Search for them on Google, YouTube, and even here. Banish the negative energies buy burning herbs (as well as incense if you choose) such as sage or do a banishing ritual such as The Banishing Ritual of a Pentagram. Cleansing yourself can also get rid of any negativity that is on you.
2.> Also how could I clear my chakras the best way? You know that some of mine are open and acting well and others are there but I can feel them struggling at times to function. This will all help me real greatly.
Answer: Not just "some". All of your chakras are open. It is not your chakras struggling to function; it is you that is. There is no best technique. You have to look up methods and see which ones may work for you. Sometimes when I am in the shower I will visualize my chakras, take a rag, rub myself (with soap) on the spots where the seven main chakras are known, and I will imagine the negative energies being washed away.
3.> Also I had about 3 friends trying to commit suicide and they all came to me and I had to stop them from moving forward. Luckily they listened and are now doing ok. Could there energy just have clinged on to me? If so would I have to cleanse myself?
Answer: Stress and concern can cling on to you and people can take energy away from others especially in times of need. I don't recommend anyone to take away energy from others. Their negative emotions and troubles can affect you if you are near them. Especially if you're an empath or psychic because you could feel those energies around you. You should cleanse yourself because it will get rid of any new or pervious negative energies that have formed. You never want any negative influences in your working space when you spell cast, meditate, or do a ritual unless you need that negativity for a specific purpose.
