After spending time with groups of people (such as in concerts, shopping malls or at clubs) do you feel physically ill? Do you feel it takes time to energetically wash away the feeling? After having to be out in social situations for any length of time, do you feel the need to be alone for several days?
These are all symptoms of a sensitive (and often damaged) energetic barrier. As a result, we need to consciously develop and strengthen our energetic barrier and inner sacred power. And to be honest with you, this will likely be a lifelong practice in one way or another. Therefore, if possible, I recommend this ritual to be performed after every Dark Moon.
As we grow and evolve, we may become less sensitive to some stimulants (angst of big cities, bitter people, etc.) and more susceptible to others. This poses a challenge, as your energetic barrier must keep up with your evolvement and environment. Otherwise, you will feel drained and helpless as you absorb the energies of your surroundings
