Guarding ourselves from negativity is part of taking care of ourselves.
How do we do that?
I have used white light, God’s protective light, for many years now. I visualize white light around myself, and those I love. It’s a way to stop, say a quick prayer and take it a step further, by picturing a brilliant white light around ourselves, our homes, our vehicles, and our loved ones.
This is one way.

Knowing who you are, and loving yourself is vital, to guard yourself against negativity.
When someone makes comments or statements about you, that you know in your heart aren’t true, loving yourself and checking in, is important. Asking if what they are saying holds any truth at all, stopping to take deep breaths, and saying a quick prayer helps me.
One of my spiritual teachers said, “when someone makes negative comments about you, it’s really their battle with themselves”.
No one can make our days awful or happy, for that matter. Happiness is an inside job. It always comes from us.
We can allow what they say to ruin our precious, present moments, or we can stop, assess and check in to see if what is happening is truth or not.
I do my best to remember, what another spiritual teacher taught me; to say to myself, “Interesting point of view”.
This helps me to stay in perhaps a neutral place without judgment more easily, when I remember to do this.
It’s like everything else I learn, it’s a practice.
What I know for sure, the more I’m aware of what I’m feeling, it’s easier to shift things inside of myself.
My life works so much better when I can maintain my positive attitude.
In the end, I am fully responsible to myself for everything I think, say and do. Or don’t do!
I take responsibility for what I have or do not have in my life. Know with your thoughts and actions and feelings, you can attract or push away, wonderful things, if you’re in or not in alignment with God, Source.
Give thanks to God and find appreciation for all that you do have.
It’s up to you to learn to guard yourself from negativity.
Reading daily readings, and devotions, writing in a gratitude journal, as I have stated before I do each day, are also ways to guard ourselves against negativity.
Choosing the people, we are around carefully, is something else we can do. It is said that we are the sum total of our 5 closest people in our lives!
Here is a good site I found that has several quotes about staying away from negativity:
To end this, I will challenge you to ask yourself, “What are ways I can and will take care of myself, to guard against negativity?”
Many blessings to all of you,
PS. Below is the Emotional Chart I use to become aware of where I’m at each day. Emotions all hold a certain vibration. The question is, “Do you want to be feeling something of a higher vibration?” If so, learn to live on the left side of this scale more often. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about this Emotional Scale.
