Protection of our Aura and Energy.
So depending on the people around you, every different aura will build you up in a positive or a negative way. When you understand the basic concepts of auras and energy exchange, it should become quite apparent why we need to protect ourselves from outside negative or bad energy. Many people in the healing or teaching jobs are getting their auras drained every day, often they don’t even realise why they are feeling tired and have no energy. Being around sick or demanding people will have a big effect on us, so that is why it is important to protect yourself from this energy drain as much as possible. Some people give way more of themselves than others, so unless these people practise protecting their field they will probably experience this negative effect on themselves stronger than most. Another concern as we develop spiritually and open up, we become more sensitive to others, increasing our risk of absorbing their negativity and garbage unless we are careful not to. Below are some of the ways you might want to consider trying, remember use the ones that resonate with you, and use them regularly.
The Physical Blocks of Protection.
For those that have studied body language this should be familiar. This is when you’re in a room with people or standing in front of a person that you want to protect yourself from. Try crossing your arms and legs if possible and don’t face directly towards them, stand or sit pointing away from them. Most shy people will practice this movement without realising it. Really they are saying is, stay away from me I don’t want to interact with you. Whether or not you realise it we all use body language to close off or open up to others. You would not use the closed off position if you were going for a job interview, probably the opposite if you really wanted the job. When I psychically read for people, they are opposite and facing me, this opens them up so I can help them. People who cross or hold their arms are hard to read. They are automatically blocking their energy from me, whether they are aware of it or not..
The Spiritual Blocks of Protection.
All people using their psychic abilities (which is everyone), should practise psychic protection. At a basic level it will stop other people using our energy unless we want them to. Healers, psychics, nurses, mental and disability medical staff, those working in large offices and anyone in the counselling field should learn this valuable art. Stress, feeling unwell, being worn out and run down are all signs of people robbing your energy or being around sick persons. People in dysfunctional relationships or dealing with a lot of people should learn aura protection also.
As humans we can get to be greedy so it only natural J that if we are feeling down and someone else around you is happy, why not get some of their energy and put a smile on our face!
Psychic Protective Practices for your Aura.
One of the biggest problems when you open up your psychic ability is the increase of your sensitivity to any other energy around you. Here are some exercises that can help you maintain your energy if done regularly.
The Reflective Mirror – Knight Armour.
I believe this to be one of the most efficient ways to protect oneself. To be used every morning, before work, at lunch and before going out at night or anytime you are meeting other people. When you are practiced it only takes a faction of a minute to protect yourself.
“Rest in your mind’s eye and establish a regular mediative breath. Now after maintaining a quiet moment and space in your mind, visualize a light breathable mirrored suit of armour reflecting all negative light and energy away from you. Make sure you visualise the suit going all the way around and under you, leave no place where the bad energy can get through. Every time someone comes to drain or change your energy see their attempts bounce of your suit of armour and head back to them. Picture their arrows of negative energy hitting your mirrored suit and heading back to the owner converted to love. If you just rebound the arrows back without converting them to love, you are no better than those firing at you. On a base level, it would be seen as trying to transpose your will on others.”
The Condom or Bubble Field.
Very similar to the mirror armour, but when you mediate imagine the field completely surrounding you as protection. Picture the negative energy bouncing off your shield converting it back to love and compassion. Mentally doing this exercise regularly will keep your protection up against the energy robbers of the world.
Spirit Guides or Angels:
Spirit guides and angels are our connection to the spirit world or source. They are there to help us through us through life. They can be former relations in previous incarnations or higher energy beings that care and nurture us. You must ask for help or protection from them in order for them to help us. They are experts at what we go through in life and are there (if allowed) to help us. (Remember they cannot help us unless we ask for it.) Before I read for someone I always ask for a ball of protection from my guides to surround my client and myself in the reading room. This allows me to connect to the client guides to bring out any information for their greater good. Remember the guide and angels are there to help us. All though our life most guides will come and go as we go through our different crisis and situations. I believe most people have 2 to 3 guides with them all the time and though some of these may change throughout our life. they are always with us when called upon. Guides are our spiritual experts on life in the physical world.
Incense and Sage Protection.
Burning incense and sage is a great way to chase away negative or bad energy in your aura or surrounds. White Sage has been used for eons by the Native American Indians for protection. The clearing of houses and areas of unwanted lower spirit activity and energy will often use burning sage. Sage burnt around your aura and your home and work place (if allowed-remember fire alarms), will clear any unwanted dark energy. Sometimes this may take several attempts, but if practiced regularly it will clear your personal, home and work area. There are several types of sage, use the one the best suits you. In an enclosed room the fumes can be too much for some people so initially only burn it for a short time and then build up to longer times if needed.
Incense is also a great way to make your environment smell nice and refreshing and be protective at the same time. Incense is available in many varieties and forms for all different applications.
How to Clear your Aura with Sage.
Best done with another person helping, but can be done by yourself. Starting from the feet work your way up the body, making sure you go through the legs. Go around the body and work your way to the crown of your head. This exercise is effective if practiced regularly say once a week or more if needed.
Vibration and Flower Essences.
Certain flowers and essences can open up and protect our auras. Lavender mixed with water is a great comforter and has a calming effect on most people. Be watchful and ask if others are allergic to certain essences. Rose essence mixed with water and sprayed with an atomiser is a great cleanser for negative energy and gives a boost to your aura.
Strengthening of the Auric Field.
There are many ways to reinvigorate your aura after it has suffered damage. Just in day to day activity’s around people or in stressful situations our aura can suffer. Spiritual healers will use some of these techniques; again it’s about the ones that work for you. So don’t be afraid of experimenting till you find the one’s that work for you the best.
Shower after Work.
Often during stressful days at work we can come home frazzled and dazed. The best way to remove a lot of negative or bad energy is as soon as you are through your front door go and have a good old fashion shower. A bath is better if you can lay and let the water take away the rubbish that stuck to you during the day. The hair is a trap for unwanted energy, so makes sure it gets a good wash. Lice love your hair and so does bad energy, so clear it out and let the water purify you.
Crystal Recharging and Stabilizing of your Aura.
Crystals have the ability to absorb and amplify different frequency or energy’s. Holding double terminated crystals while resting or mediating will increase your aura field. The pointed end will draw energy into our aura. Crystals work on different frequency’s, to help restore our energy auras. Different crystals work with different parts of us to heal and recharge and balance the different areas. The easiest way to remember them starting out is to relate them the colours of the chakras. Blue crystal go to the blue throat chakra etc. Clear quartz can be used just about anywhere and is a very commonly used crystal. Quartz is silicone and has been used in the early days to make crystal radios as the crystal absorbs and amplifies the radio signal. The silicon chip or quartz crystal is the cornerstone of the modern computer and this should show you how important it is to the human race in many different ways. Remember be careful having crystals around you when you sleep, as they may make it harder for you to relax and find peaceful sleep if they are magnifying your energy and making you more alert.
Reiki or Spiritual Healing.
Using traditional Reiki or spiritual healing can realign our energy centres and allow energy to flow properly. They should also be practiced at removing any unwanted negative energy in the body. Depending on the type of healing, frequency and the healer will allow you to see how effective this will be. A good healer can identify what is needed and where. Regular and ongoing healing would ensure the best option for maintaining our auric field at maximum health.
The Cleansing Vortex.
Over a period of time during the day or week, reacting with others aura can leave us feeling burnt out and dirty with negative debris clinging to our aura. A simple five minute exercise will greatly help restore and cleanse our aura. Sitting or lying down gradually slow your breathing to start relaxing your muscles in your legs and arms. Mediation music can help you achieve regular slow breathing. Now in your mind’s eye, visualise about 5-10 metres above you a giant vacuum cleaner sucking a clean vortex of golden white energy, spinning upwards and out. Slowly lower the vortex down to cover your entire aura and visualize all the dirty murky bits getting sucked up the vortex. As the dirty dribs go, imagine fresh new light filtering down the centre of the vortex. With each moment your aura is being purified and refreshed. When you feel the your aura is clean, gradually come back to ground yourself in the room. This exercise if practiced regularly will greatly help you maintain your vital energy levels.
Summary: It has been my experience that anyone practicing psychic development and not protecting themselves will sooner or later get hit with a bundle of bad negative energy. Try different techniques and use the ones that feel right or works for you. A lot of people will use more than one form of protection, so try a few. These are only but a few of the techniques for protecting your energy.
Remember; experiment with them all till you find the one that works for you. Good Luck
