Boundaries Are Your Personal Magic Circle: Ways to Know and Strengthen Them August 16, 2018

We can get so easily sucked dry by energy vampires or give up too much of our personal power when our boundaries aren’t firm. These energetic barriers between us and everyone else are our own personal magic circle.

After you study the tables, I encourage you to contemplate your own in the exercise below.
