Being connected has special issues that come with it. It means you can sense the energy of the group, and this can subtly affect your energy field as well.
When you are working with energy consciously and are now aware that you are being affected, it is important to know where your own energy starts and stops. It is also important to be aware of your own weaknesses that you have not yet transformed, because it is these weaknesses that become especially stressed when confronted or opposed.
Many energy workers, such as myself, are seeking to reach that advanced state where all energy can flow through their own energy field unimpeded by any barriers, and continue on. This can only happen when the practitioner has become aware of the light and dark in all energy fields, and is unmoved by either polarity; they are detached. Not uncaring, but detached. When practitioners have reached this level of self-awareness, they can step into any energy field they need to examine, get a good look at what is going on inside the energy field, make whatever adjustments are necessary, then safely step out of the energy field (because they are detached from their actions) and back inside their own field.
Today, with issues reaching crisis proportions in so many areas and frequencies, it is hard to get and stay clear. None of us are perfect and there are always going to be frequencies moving about that we have not yet mastered.
I have found it is a great help, when facing many diverse energies at the same time, to be able to consciously sense, feel or see your aura around you, hold its membrane firm, and clear the energy inside. You can do this in a number of ways. You can bring forth universal energy from inside your heart; you can work with an energetic substance such as a crystal or sacred geometry image and identify with its energy to clear your own aura; you can invoke whichever guides and guardians you personally work with and ask their help to clear your aura.
Once you have cleared your aura, you want to focus on getting your aura to be pulsating, glistening and shining, to at least three feet out from your body, until your own energy has solidified and you are ready to again enter into action.
If you have not yet studied any energy modalities and want help learning how to do this, now is a good time to start. Most bona fide energy modalities teach you what the human energy field is all about, and you can start learning to accurately access your own energy and that of the objects around you. The modality then provides you with some tools to adjust, protect and assist.
You will probably want to go on from wherever you start to study other modalities as well. Each has some of the truth but none has all the truth, since truth is infinite in scope.
