After all the crazy, wet weather we had in May and June, I’m ready for warmth! Planning a vacation this summer? Here are some tips to help you attract good qi wherever you go.
A road trip can be a fabulous way to see and experience new places and new people. Start your trip right by making sure that your vehicle is in good working order. An unexpected repair on the road can cut into your travel time as well as your pocketbook. Give your vehicle a good interior cleaning before you go to bring good vibes into your car, as well as to help clear obstacles to a good trip. If traveling by RV or camper, it’s likely that it has been sitting closed up all winter. Clear that old, stagnant energy that has gathered by airing it out thoroughly; you want to clear all musty, old odors. You may need to burn some smudge or incense to clear negative qi that may linger. Your vehicle is your “home away from home” while traveling, so a thorough cleansing is worth the effort!
If you are flying, don’t let the stress of being in a hurry drain you of all your energy. Allow plenty of time to check in and to get through security. With all the security-screening measures, especially the full body x-ray scans— it’s important to have good, strong qi around you to help protect you from any energetic drain. If you “opt out” of the scan, the total body pat down can be draining and invasive of your privacy. Keep your energy levels strong by being well-rested and not letting your blood sugar get low. Feel and visualize the qi within extending out to create a protective “bubble of energy” around you.
