Some of you might be thinking, what do we need protection from?

And that is a really good question.

I think that our reality is based on the thoughts and electromagnetic fields that they create. This way, all circumstances match the energetic blueprint that we emit constantly.

When our thoughts are mostly combined with fear, this creates a scary reality in which everything can be a threat to protect from.

If we fear that there is something outside of ourselves, that can harm us, we want to protect our being and surroundings at all costs. And this is a human right to feel safe and calm on all occasions.

But to be honest, I think there is a deeper meaning to all of this. When there are parts of ourselves that feel threatened or uncertain, they need more attention. Whether these are physical beings or spiritual ones, we need to think about why we are afraid of them. What emotions do they bring in us? What circumstances we are afraid of? Which thoughts, internal dialogue, and stories feed that fear and need for protection?

We are all one and connected with an invisible web of karma (action and reaction process) in a broader sense. It all comes back to us, and there is a possibility that the things we need to protect ourselves from, actually live within us.

I will just leave you with this thought for contemplation and if there’s something that you’d like to add, go ahead and leave a message in the comments.

As always, if you have any questions regarding the protection topic, I’m happy to discuss more in the comment section!
