Being Present Moving Forward

Meditation Question: Is it OK to meditate in public?

This is a question posted by a client onto my YouTube grounding walkthrough video called Psychic Healing Grounding Meditation- Part 1. I posted a short reply to her there on youtube. Since it’s such a frequently asked question, I thought I’d answer it more fully here in the hopes that more people see it.

Here’s her question:
Hi Janet. Is it ok/safe to do grounding or healing chakras/aura in public (eg. on the bus/plane or somewhere else where there are other people around you)? Many thanks :-)

My reply:
Yes it can be safe, useful, and practical to do some level of grounding and self-healing in public, though there are a few tips to consider. By “in public” I mean anywhere not inside your own home, so in your car, at work, in a coffee shop, on the train, walking downtown, in a gym, in a workplace, etc.

Energy Safety tips when working your energy- meditating, grounding, or healing your chakras & aura in public:
1. With your mind ask your angels to help you to be fully safe on all levels as you work your energy.

2. While in public, do energy work that helps you to be more present, such as grounding or basic energy healing on your chakras or aura. When you are more present your body will sponge up energy from the people & environment less. In other words do not do a meditation in public that makes you tune out or feel sleepy. When you tune out or feel sleepy or distracted your spirit is “popping out of or leaving your body.” This is what sleep is for, so when in public try to tune IN, and be present. This way you are more “you” and you sponge up energy from your environment and other people much less.

Spirituality Question: Can’t I tune out when I’m at work?

meditations to do while in public, I’d say try all of my YouTube videos & any of my meditation recordings except three that I would save for home. The three recordings to save for home are the Confidence meditation 15min, Emotional Gardening 15min, and Deep Thought Webinar 1hr+. Once you practice with a video or meditation recording you can create mini versions that you walk yourself through that can fit into the little minute you have here and there. For specific suggestions you could post a specific question below, or check out the blog post I did called Grounding & Meditation During Vacation & Travel.

Meditation Question: How can I visualize gold energy?

Hello everyone! This is the very first blog post of this blog, which is dedicated to meditation, personal growth, self-healing, etc.! :-) I want to invite everyone to send me any question you have that you'd like answered here. You can post your questions & comments below.

So the other day a new phone reading client who had been meditating with my meditations on and off for a few weeks asked me "In your meditations you often mention using gold healing energy. I am having trouble visualizing the color gold." Well first of all, good for you for being able to visualize any color at all! I started meditating in college, 1988-1992, which makes me 45 now to spare you the math! Back then all I could see was the color black, everywhere. No forms or shapes- nothing. I don't think I expected to see anything anyway, and was just meditating to feel better and since it worked for that I stuck with it.

Then a few years later when I heard about visualizing your energy and that all energy had color, I still could only see black with no form or shape. I kept meditating and eventually I could see black with some form and shape, then some bits of color. I learned that energy that is a gold color/vibration helps one to let go and heal. I wanted to visualize the color gold when I was meditating too, even though it's not actually necessary. If you create gold healing energy with your intention then you really did it, regardless of how well you can see it. Creating is what you do with your intention or thought; visualizing is more of a fun confidence-boosting extra where you can watch what you are doing. That is why in my meditations I try to say many versions such as "create, imagine, or visualize" since it all works.

visualization aid, test tube of gold leaf and water
So back to my early 20's when I was definitely wanting to visualize gold energy, but couldn't do it at all. What helped me was to buy a little test tube with gold leaf suspended in water, and hold it or keep it visible when I meditated. Every once in a while I'd open my eyes and stare at the gold color, then close my eyes and try to see it in my mind. I remember doing this over and over. It took time but it did help me to be able to visualize the color gold, at first for just a few seconds. If you are in the Chicago area you can get gold leaf in a little glass ball or test tube at Dave's Rock Shop in Evanston, IL.

gold glitter on locations of hand and finger chakras
Now I have four cats that love knocking things down, so I also have a plastic little container of gold glitter, which I hope can survive a fall more easily. I keep it on my desk because it's still helpful and fun for me to see and hold a visual example of the color gold. In this photo I show with glitter where the hand chakra is in the palm of each hand, and also fingertip chakras in the tip of each finger!
