Today could pose a challenge for you. If you encounter people who argue with you or want to cause you problems, stand your ground. Don’t let them push you around. Set clear boundaries and defend them calmly but firmly. Often we allow our boundaries to be breached because we believe we should be “nice” and “accommodating”, but bullies and predators sense that weakness in us and exploit it for their own gain. We can certainly be nice and accommodating while still maintaining strong defenses. The important thing is not to operate from fear but from a deeply-felt security in your own self. Try this: Ground yourself (try this Tree Meditation to see what grounding feels like) and then visualize a bubble of protective white-light energy around yourself. You can add whatever colors of energy that appeal to you. When dealing with a difficult person or situation, order this protective energy to intensify, and visualize this happening. It’s like turning on your high-beams while driving down a dark road. When the danger is past, thank Spirit (or the Universe or whatever deity you follow) for protecting you.
