If you’re anything like me, or just about everyone I’ve come across, you’ve had at least one moment in your life where you’ve had “a bad feeling” about someone or something. Maybe you’ve walked into an old house and gotten an uneasy feeling or avoided that creepy neighbor because they gave you bad vibes. Maybe you’re standing in line at the grocery store and you “feel” a person come up behind you even though you didn’t see or hear them approach. And everyone knows that one person at the office that is so negative they are exhausting to be around. What you are tapping into here is that person or places energy. Sometimes this energy is negative, but it can also be positive. Most people have a friend they love being around because their positive personality is so infectious or have a special place they like to retreat to rest and recharge. The energy we encounter day to day can affect us more than we ever imagined. We are getting bombarded with so many different energy fields on a daily basis, it’s amazing we can even function normally at all. Because we are so susceptible to these energetic influences it’s always a good idea to protect oneself.
I’m a firm believer that everyone can benefit from psychic self-defense. Not just psychics. Some of you may think, “I don’t need psychic self-defense because I have not experienced anything supernatural”. Even the everyday person can benefit from protecting themselves from others energy or others from their own energy. And if you are even a little sensitive to the supernatural you would be smart to start practicing as soon as possible.
When I started experiencing the “night visitors”, I realized a great need to understand what was happening to me and how to protect myself. Any good psychic will tell you there must be boundaries laid down to safely communicate with other entities and consciousness’s. These boundaries and the means by which they are put into place are in my opinion up to the individual. There is truly nothing stronger than the power within oneself, and the individual must use that which resonates best with them to structure a strong protective force around themselves. There are many books that have been written on learning how to protect oneself spiritually, but I personally like Dion Fortune’s ‘Psychic Self-Defense: The Classic Instruction Manual for Protecting Yourself Against Paranormal Attack’. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to a more in depth understanding into the subject.
Before I do any kind of spiritual work or go to sleep for that matter, I always place a protective shield around my person. I close my eyes, take a deep breath in and out, and envision a big, beautiful pyramid of white light completely encompassing my body. I then take a little time to call on my higher self and my guides to help keep me safe, guide me to understand my purpose, and the best possible outcome of what I am doing. Whether it be doing a reading, sleeping or going to a place where there is a lot of energy around, i.e. a haunted house or even a shopping mall I evoke this “protection spell’. The great thing about psychic self-defense is it works for everyone and traverses all religions. Whether you are calling on Jesus, Allah, Buddha or Gaia you can protect yourself. The most important thing to remember here is your intent is everything. Will plus desire equals manifestation. If you desire to protect yourself and will it so, it is. It really is that simple. The power is inside you, and up to you to tap into.
As easy a concept as all this is, it can be difficult to rid yourself of fear and self-doubt, and allow yourself to really believe you are a powerful person. I make mentioned in my previous post a Robert Monroe quote I like to refer to in times of fear. This mantra, if you will, really helps me to look at my experiences in a more positive way. Even a negative encounter can be seen as a learning experience and I truly believe even the lowest and most depraved astral entities are worthy of compassion, love and forgiveness, for we are all from the same source.
There is no beginning, there is no end,
There is only change.
There is no teacher, there is no student,
There is only remembering.
There is no good, there is no evil,
There is only expression.
There is no union, there is no sharing,
There is only one.
There is no joy, there is no sadness,
There is only love.
There is no greater, there is no lesser,
There is only balance.
There is no stasis, there is no entropy,
There is only motion.
There is no wakefulness, there is no sleep,
There is only being.
There is no limit, there is no chance,
There is only a plan.
– Robert Monroe
Over the years I have been using my defense methods, I’ve noticed that not only am I able to protect myself faster and stronger, but I’m also more tapped into my higher self, guardian angels and guides. If I need them, I call and they will come! Once when I was experiencing a particularly scary “energy sucker” I could not seem to shake, I cried out for help and a beautiful being of light literally swooped in and swept the negative entity away. It was truly and an amazing experience, one I will never forget, and a great reminder that we are never alone in our struggles. “They” are always watching and willing to help if we would just ask
