Circles are great as the individual with the lowest energy (beginners) moves up I to a higher level of vibrations as the individual with the higher vibration(advanced) moves up higher So we bend energies in a circle. YOU NEVER GET UP AND LEAVE once a circle has started. You can cause major issues and pain for the physical body. I recently sat in meditation and 2 people did this. Teaching for so long I made sure the energy was brought back to circle and closed. You do not touch a medium when they have left their body as it can cause irrefutable damage. History has recorded that mediums have passed as a result of this happening.
To my story. Not all churches have good energy. Same circle as yesterday. I sat and began to drift into a deeper state of awareness. There was a dark hooded man standing behind me. I inquired to who he was as the energy emitted from him did not feel positive. No reply. I asked him to leave. No reply. I said either you leave or I closed down. No reply. I closed down. Now when you sitting for one full hour meditating this can be a very long hour. About 45 minutes into it, I thought I’ll try again.
Wow, he was still there. I requested he leave again. He ignored me. So I said once again ,you are not welcome in my meditation and It’s time for you to leave or I will closed down again. He ignored me again. As I began to close down he swatted me across the back of the head. I almost fell out of my chair.
Lesson in this was. Always ask for highest and best. Never work in energy that does not feel good. Just because you are supposedly in a sanctuary, be careful .Learn to Protect Yourself where ever you meditate. In love and light
