People often want help with protection. This may be for protection from psychic attack, physical danger, emotional distress, oversensitivity, empathic reception, negative energies or from disease as well as other possible reasons. There are vast numbers of stones, spells, spiritual techniques, energy work, and filters and shields that can be used for protection.
Protection is aided and enhanced by the ongoing process of cleansing and clearing your energy body and by developing your mental ,emotional and spiritual integrity. When you work to heal yourself this will help prevent reoccurrence of difficulties from whatever cause. Ones own fear of psychic attack is usually far more harmful than actual attack. Fear is a primary attractant to all forms of possible psychic danger.
I usually distinguish between actual psychic attack and a kind of background negativity or reaction negativity which is very common but usually does not comprise true attack and is often amplified by the receiver. I do think that everyone needs to learn to have boundaries and a moderate protective shield or filter as a routine. That is part of normal spiritual hygiene and is usually enough to provide shelter from the kind of frequent perceived assault of background negativity.
It is also of value particularly when you are doing work with people who do have concerns and issues with psychic attack or feel vulnerable to such effects to have some idea of how to throw up a major protection though maintaining such a total shield all the time as many do is often harmful because these total protective shields can block reception of needed information and energies as well.
Actual determined all out psychic attack is far less common than many think it is. Major defenses are often used inappropriately. It is true that attention attracts energy and paying attention to attack and fear of any kind can draw it to you. Even then ones relationship to events will be different in accord with ones personal spiritual balance.
One concern people who are doing energy healing work often have is about the potential for picking up negative energies through empathy or from clients. Properly done healing work will have built in safe guards against this, so long as the practitioner remains neutral in the sense of not using their own energy or trying to force specific results.
When it comes to energetically protecting oneself from physical danger these techniques can and do help, but they do not eliminate the need for normal common sense precautions. When a person deliberately places themselves in harms way they may indeed attract trouble. ( Don't walk down a dark alley, in a bad neighborhood, at midnight, wearing a mink coat and diamonds, and get mad at God /Goddess if you get mugged).
Part of protecting ourselves involves basic spiritual hygiene, working to remove energetic blocks, repair aura damage, remove implants and entities, general practice of clearing and balancing your aura and chakras and staying grounded will help prevent susceptibility to and harm from the influence of energies ,emotions and even psychic attack from others, deliberate or unintentional from people and non physical entities.
Whether such influences or entities are imaginary or real in a specific case is usually moot. Most methods of protective work are still usable whether the negative energy is from external or internal sources.
Light is used for protection. Spiritual shakti (energy) ,invoking angels and/ or other protective forces are among the most common protective methods.
Crystals can be contracted with to bring in and help amplify spiritual light and energy. Another form of light people often call on is the violet flame of Saint Germane for protection and evaporating negative attachments. Always ask your Solar / Companion Angel ( also called guardian angel) for help with protection, you will receive it. If you do not like the term Angel use another. (Sometimes part of your life lesson is that you have the ability to deal with issues of protection, in which case the angelic protection will remain as back up rather than being overt).
The more you attune with spirit and move in accord with your own Soul purpose the less need for protections you will have. These methods do not require you to practice or believe in any particular faith or path.
If you have been attuned to an energy work system You can use that shakti such as Quartz shakti, The crystal healing shakti, Reiki ,etc.. Some energy work systems do have specific shakti and procedures for protection.
Without attunement to an energy system you can call on White ,Golden or rainbow light or other energy to fill your aura and form a protective bubble, filter or force field around you. Some of us use the very Star Trekish (mental) command "shields Up!" Having a gesture or movement or mental image that is used as a trigger for your protective technique often increases a persons ability to focus and create a shield or filter. One such movement is to hold the index finger and thumb of each hand together and visualize yourself in a strong white sphere/egg. Another gesture activation
is to place your hands palms outward , thumbs and index fingers together forming a triangle. Mental imagery or a small gesture such as tapping your wrist or rubbing your index finger knuckle as though activating a shield with a button are less obvious. A typical mental visualization is of an image glowing bubble of light surrounding you. Or you can visualiize a Teflon bubble shield.
I feel that it is better to intend that negative energy be transformed to positive energy such as by being sent to the earth for clearing and purifying before it is returned to its owner and do not usually recommend mirror shields. I often use a mental image of negative energy hitting my shields and converting to positive or being teleported to a cleansing entity before being returned . This applies to personal energy as well as that from others.
We often need more protection from our own programs of self sabotage than from external or psychic forces.
You can create a Macro set of shakti and imagery for instant on protection . Macros may run faster and more weakly than conscious energy work but you can run conscious energy work in combination with macros and programs . If you do not have access to energy macros you can still practice your protective method so that you can activate it automatically.
I usually recommend filters rather than shields as a protective method. Filters will not inadvertently block needed energy and information. Some people build such strong defensive shields that they close out needed information and so may put themselves at more than normal risk because they are not open to be aware of the signals around them. The need for protection can be overemphasized. The best protection in the spiritual and psychic sense is to develop your intuition and personal spiritual strength and then you will not be vulnerable.
I have found that rather than shields and filters the light of transformation is often the best protection, in this method one brings light into ones body from the Earth and the Heavens and expands it into a radiant rainbow filling it with your own heart light and expanding into a sphere around you any negative energy will be transformed into love and healing.
There are really a great many stones that are used for protection. Clear quartz can be programmed for any kind of protective work. Smoky quartz is often carried as a protective stone other stones used for General Protection include Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli, fluorite, chiastolite, jet, onyx ,prehnite, shark tooth , malachite, black tourmaline, obsidian, coal black and red stones in general. Garnet , Agates, jade and sard are also protective stones of note.
You might also seek out stones relating to the specific area where you desire protection. Protection from sprained ankles might be better assisted by a stone working for strength and agility rather than one that protects from psychic attacks, though some, Obsidian might help with either of these goals.
Your birthstones whatever their general properties are, will be protective for you. To dissolve Negativity & Psychic defense you can use black tourmaline, lapis, labradorite. Physical Protection: apache tears, jet , rutilated quartz , coral, holey stones, stones with natural holes are also considered protective.
Not a stone, but because horn, antlers , shells and the like are often included in stone properties lists I'll mention that naturally shed cats claws are a classic protective token.
For personal protection you can carry some stones in a pocket or pouch or wearing a protective stone in jewelry .You can also use these and other protective stones in your house and in grids dedicated to protection for yourself and others .
Select your stones for protection and commune with them so that you know it is appropriate to work for them for protection . Set the intention that these are your protective stones. Always start with cleared and fully energized stones and clear stones used in protective work often. You may want to change protective stones frequently to give them a rest. Some stones repel or dissolve negative energy others absorb and or neutralize it but they should all be cleared and thanked often for helping bring in the energies and helping you with protection.
Spells and similar work such as the use of talismans and amulets is primarily a means of assisting us in focusing our affirmations and intentions and in harmonizing with the natural rhythm of the Universe. There are a vast number of herbs and color and other tools and correspondences used for protective work. The clarity of your focus is more important than the tool you work with.
Here is an example of an affirmation or spell that many people have found to be effective.
I, (your name here) command all and any forces and entities, beneficial or not, to cease and desist from sending me physical, emotional and spiritual feelings and pain from any other entity, human or otherwise, from this moment on, for now and forever. Unless I choose otherwise. So be it.
The BEST psychic shield is to strengthen your own energy body.
To work consciously to heal and strengthen your own chakra, meridians and aura on all levels and to learn to run energy through your entire body of light. When you are mentally emotionaly and spiritually whole and in tune with your soul purpose and the natural flow of the universal Rhythms you are safe from all psychic harm.
