Good morning Divine!!! Hope all is well with you. I completely understand what you are talking about. All of the times, I tend to protect myself, my saying and visualizing this: “Please surround me in a divine white light and a positive white shield, so strong that it repulses all forms of negative energy.” (Visualize the white shield of protection), this really helps. Some times I will say this in my head during the day, and I always say this first thing in the morning as I start my day. As you say this everyday and more consistently, you will slowly see more and more, that you will not be around negativity, but more positive and like minded individuals. I also, find that I have done some of the Kundalini videos, from Kia Miller, that has really helped fortify this concept as well. I find Kundalini videos, help to remove any of the sticky energy from others. Hope this helps.
