Last week my son Tyrell came up to me and told me that he was tired of the spirits in his room.
“I feel like I’m being watched all the time. I hear stuff moving all the time, and doors creaking and other noises. It’s annoying!”
My kids are used to seeing spirit activity. Unlike myself, they actually see spirit beings here and there, and Tyrell has experienced things that have scared him in the past. He shut his sensitivity down a few years ago, but recently they are coming back. Thankfully he feels more confident with them and himself and for this reason they are probably coming out again.
So I did a refresher…kid style…on protection and taking control of his gift.
Here is some info on energetic protection. I do not promote any intentional invoking or communicating with random beings, opening portals via Ouija board, etc, I also don’t buy into the “all is positive and rosy in the universe eyes wide shut” concept. There are energies and being of all frequencies in all dimensions, just as we have all types of people here in the physical world. We wouldn’t invite a stray rapist into our home, just as we wouldn’t want a negative entity in our personal space.
Here are some ways you can shield yourself from outside energy. If crowds or certain people cause you physical symptoms like headaches, nausea, “picky” feeling, or anxiety, these methods will work for you. Make your cleansing and protection a daily practice and it will become an automatic habit. People who do energy work, or are in the psychic field need to practice these techniques along with going to a regular practitioner to keep up their own auric health and chakras aligned, along with regular cord cutting and detachment techniques.
Psychic protection is important for anyone who is doing spiritual or psychic development work… including if you are participating in a meditation circle. Once you become adept at making contact with the higher realms… you will understand more fully the risks that you face… and will wish to prevent psychic attacks.
But many people at the beginning may be unaware of the problems, so are not protecting themselves adequately. Once you open yourself up to spirit, you should begin to take psychic protection measures to protect yourself from psychic attack. Many of us have innate psychic gifts that we are born with… and it is common for these gifts or abilities to just begin, with no warning.
The development of psychic abilities may happen to you somewhat unintentionally. If you have been using or wearing high energy crystals, they have the potential to magnify your psychic gifts… almost suddenly. Often though it is when you begin spiritual development, including participating in meditation groups. If you are going to start or attend a meditation group, they usually do a grounding and centering meditation, along with creating and opening a “circle”.
Most of you may know that you have a guardian angel or spirit guide who looks after your well-being, and although they do their best to ensure that you are protected, you still need to take action to prevent any attacks that might come. Sometimes the type of problem that you may encounter may be a spirit, but sometimes it is not.
Often it is more like a negative vibration, released by other people. It may not be deliberate, and may not even be aimed at you. Occasionally someone is thinking a specific negative thought about you… and these have the potential to cause you problems, especially if this person is a gifted psychic, even if they don’t know they are.
The first thing to do is to develop the habit of protecting yourself energetically every day, which doesn’t have to be complicated. You can use your thought energy (which is very powerful) to visualize protective barriers around you, and of course you can use Reiki (if attuned), with or without the symbols. A sensible way to use these methods is to carry out one or more of them every morning, especially before leaving home, although you can also use them at any time you feel particularly threatened, such as when going into some stressful situation or if you have to deal with very negative people in either a work or social situation.
DAILY ENERGETIC PROTECTION RITUALS
1. The daily energy cloak
In the morning, visualize a zip-up overall hoodie made of blue or gold light. Physically (or intuitively – visually) put it on and zip it up. Put on the hood. This light cloak is a cloak of protection, filtering out any negative energy from others, and protecting your own energy inside it. Intend at the beginning and as you put on the cloak that it be a light cloak of protection. This sets the intention for the protective energy to be around you. If you go to a mall, restaurant or crowded place, intend that the cloak be on, or put it on again to “recharge” it – basically you thinking of it will strengthen the intention for it to protect you.
2. Before bed
Ask that angels be stationed at all 4 corners of your room and/or around your bed, to watch over and protect you. Feel free to add angels around your house entryways, or wherever you wish to increase energetic protection. Do this every night before bed for a week and it’s also good to make this a part of your daily practice anyway.
3. Calling on angelic help
Before leaving the house in the morning, ask that hundreds of angels be around you, guiding and protecting you. This is in tandem with the cloak. Archangel Michael is always there when you call on him for protection. You can also ask Archangel Michael to “vacuum” your aura and environment of all negative energy.
4. Energy Bubble
Imagine yourself in a bubble or eggshell of white or golden light which is filled with Reiki energy (if attuned), or white or yellow light, and intend that the edges of the bubble are permeable only by love, light, Reiki and positive energies. As a second stage to this method, you can also imagine and intend that it is closely surrounded by a fine mesh made of gold, and that this mesh is only permeable by love, light, Reiki and positive energies.
5. Violet Flame
If you ever feel really threatened, then do all of the above, and outside your bubble or eggshell of light filled with Reiki and covered with gold mesh, imagine and intend that there is a ring of fire (you may call it the Violet Flame, and invoke the help of Archangel Zadkiel or St. Germane), and outside that imagine and intend there is a shiny shell made of mirror or shiny silver or gold, with the mirrored/shiny side facing outwards. This effectively forms an energetic boundary around you, so that any negative energy sent your way will rebound back to its source.
6. Using Symbols on the aura
If you know the Reiki symbols, draw a Power symbol on each palm, saying its mantra 3 times,and then stroke and smooth as much of your aura as possible with your palms (about 15 cm or 6” away from your body), intending that the Reiki flows into your aura above, below and on all sides of you, to provide a protective shield against any negative energies.
7. Shielding using symbols
Another beneficial way of using the Power symbol is to draw it large in front of you and step into it, saying its mantra 3 times. Imagine being wrapped inside the Power symbol, so that it is in front, behind and each side of you, and intend that the Reiki protect you from any negativity or harm.
