With toxic relationships, the negative energy on other people is absorbed into our bodies as well.

Getting rid of toxic relationships isn’t an option when it comes to cleansing and protecting your energy.
When you let go of toxic relationships, the negative energy the toxic people in your life unleash on you stops. This keeps your energy in check and helps balance all of your chakras.

Soothing sounds quell your anxiety and there are specific frequencies that have a calming and clearing effect on the energy around you. Protecting your energy through sound is not new and was used in meditation bringing harmony in the spirit.
