When I was first learning how to clear haunted houses, we were told to laugh at the ghosts or to stay super light-hearted and laugh within ourselves. The reason being, when you can laugh at something, no matter how dark it is, it cannot have power over you. It cannot get the upper hand.
The ghosts in the houses I cleared hated that by the way. They would get meaner and nastier the more I laughed out loud and said things in a funny voice such as, “Oh you’re sooo scary.”
As angry as they would get, they couldn’t touch me. Why? Because I was owning the power of my light with absolute authority. The laughter, the light, was more powerful than any fear they were trying to provoke. They shrank back from it.
I bring this up because the misconception I’ve spoken of before is once again rearing its head for many, which is that if you're filled with light, the dark will be attracted to you.
That is an absolute lie designed to keep you small and fearful. Your light does not attract darkness. Your light is safe.
Being filled with your light is a deterrent and can hold anything at bay.
But you have to believe that. If you believe the opposite, you will attract the opposite.
When you're scared, it can feel like you want to shrink within yourself so that nobody notices you. Like an animal in the wild getting still and trying to hide when in danger. But think about how much more powerful it is to be a lion or a lioness who takes up space and doesn't shrink. Who commands the space so that nothing gets close.
I get it, even with my training, if something fearful catches me off guard, I sometimes freeze and shrink when I’m threatened. And yet, when I can remember, I've seen time and again that if I extend my light and my energy and claim more space, negative and dark people and situations back off.
Even if you’re not laughing, refusing to shrink while choosing to stay in the light is a power in and of itself.
If you keep filling yourself with light and claiming ownership of your space, nothing can get in. Simultaneously, you need strong boundaries; you need to be aware of your body and your energy field. And clear any faulty subconscious beliefs that the darkness is more powerful than the light.
If you're always taking on other people’s emotions and issues, fill your second chakra with your energy and your light. If you're always giving your power away and you feel a lot of anxiety, fill your third chakra with your power and your light. If you feel so empathetic that you're giving away your heart energy, call it back to you and fill your fourth chakra with your energy and your light.
The more you are filled with your energy and your light, the more powerful you become.
Then when fears arise, you’ll be more able to laugh at them to dissolve them. Be that lioness, be that lion. Own your space from the power of your light and watch the darkness disappear.
Side Note: When you fill with your light, while white light can be very protective, it’s too high of a frequency and will shoot you out of your body and that's the opposite of what I'm speaking of above. I want you in your body where your power is, not out. Which means see and use gold light instead. Or whatever color feels representative of your light.
