This is a topic that I have been going pondering for quite some time. Some people believe that the word protection shouldn’t be used because that would imply that you need to be protected FROM something. These people feel that since there is no “evil” that there should be no need for protection. And while I agree that there is no such thing technically as evil (some of you won’t agree with that either), that there are still times that we need protection. I have come to the decision that maybe energy management is a better word as basically it comes down to YOU making sure YOUR energy field is not vulnerable. So, the old words were psychic protection, and now let’s call it energy management 🙂
There are many ways to manage your energetic field, and the manner you choose should be based upon your preference. It is mainly about intention and your belief in what you are saying, so you want to do something you are comfortable with. You may be asking, “Why do I need to “manage my energy”?” Well, have you ever found yourself with low energy levels, insomnia, snapping at people for no reason, or just in a funky mood but you’re not sure why? Sometimes our energetic fields can get tears or holes or just become weakened, and when this occurs it opens up the possibility for others’ energy to influence you in various ways! And this happens to everyone, not just psychics or those developing their psychic ability. Think back and remember a time when you encountered an angry person, and remember how you felt after you were in their presence… possibly tired and in a funky mood yourself! That is an example of someone’s energy worming its way into your energetic field via a tear or hole or weak spot. These energetic invasions can also come from the spirit world. But please don’t let that scare you, if you manage your energetic field on a regular basis, there is nothing to be afraid of, and if you think about it, you have always been exposed to the same vulnerability, you just didn’t know it… and knowing is half the battle! So below are some ways you can manage your energy. You can do these at any time but you especially want to do this before a reading, ghost hunt and definitely if you know you will be facing a difficult person or situation. I also try to do it before I get out of bed and when I go to sleep.
“I ask the Divine Light Forces (Forces of God) for…
(1) Protection against all that is not of the light.
(2) Healing on all levels
(3) Guidance with my life. Especially in the area of …………… eg. knowing what I should be doing spiritually, help with becoming a channel for love, light, healing, guidance and inspiration. Preparing for meetings and/or seminars etc.
(4) That Divine love, light and healing energies go to …………… as well as all who are working against my spiritual progression.”
IMAGINE : Being surrounded by a hot, bright, glowing white, eggshell.
Radiating hot, bright, golden, light.
If you are a more visual person and aren’t comfortable with saying a protection prayer out loud (Or if you’re in a place where you can’t speak out loud), there are many ways to visualize your protection and they are just as effective. Again, it’s all about intention!
Visualize a bubble around yourself, protecting the outer edge of your aura like a strong, flexible membrane. Your bubble can be filled with any color that you are attracted to when you visualize it- or even be rainbow hued. Experiment to see what you feel most comfortable with. Make sure that your bubble goes all around you- behind your back and under your feet too. Use your intention to ensure that the bubble repels all negativity, but will allow positive energies to flow through it. Put your bubble in place whenever you feel the need for protection.
Instead of a bubble you could use a hooded, floor length cloak or a shield decorated with a protective design of your choice. The medium Lisa Williams visualizes a cloak like bag that has a zipper that she zips up over herself as one of her protection methods.
Another great way to do it is in the shower, which is actually what psychic medium John Edward does (and I have to agree is a great way to do it). When you are in the shower, picture any negative energy like a film of dirt over your body. Then picture the water washing all that negative energy down the drain. Once you feel “clean”, envision the water as white light pouring on you and covering every inch of you with a “protective layer”.
