You’ll be able to do all of these without any prior knowledge. So give it a try – you’ve got nothing to lose and a wonderful sense of energy and clarity to attain …
– Smudging refers to a process of burning herbs to purify or cleanse unwanted forces, and/or negative energy. This is a relatively simple process, whereby you waft ‘smoke’ into the areas that you wish to cleanse. If you are performing a cleanse for yourself or another person, or an object you will need them to pass through the smoke.
This process is a magical one… not a physical one. You do not need billowing smoke, and you do not need to feel choked up or suffocated. You are performing a ritual, it is the presence of some smoke and your intent that is required. Herbs such as sage, lavender, pine and cedar can all be used for cleansing. Incense is also acceptable try frankincense, or myrrh, or sandalwood.
- – Cleansing with Sea Salt Bath
- Washing yourself with sea salt is a method of cleansing the physical body of psychic energy that has accumulated around you. I personally see this energy as almost slime like goop that is clinging to a person’s or an object’s energy. Salt neutralizes harmful energies and is a very effective tool.
You can either add half a cup of sea salt to your bath water and soak in it, or you can stand in the shower and scrub yourself with the granular sea salt, imagining as you do so, all the negativity and pollution of the world being sloughed away from your being. Imagine all the stress and harmful energy you have accumulated or taken on from others flowing into the water. Sit in the bathtub as its drains and imagine it flowing down the drain, neutralized by the salt and water.
Wearing a symbol or a charm is a method of protection that has its roots in ancient times. In almost every culture, there is a tradition of wearing or carrying a particular amulet, charm, or token. Usually this has been blessed or created in a ritual process through which the powers of divine protection have been conferred unto it.
To create your own amulet; take a symbol you find sacred and divine. See if you can find it in a metal form or as jewelry or a pendant. If you cannot, try drawing the symbol on a piece of paper or wood, and carrying it with you. My suggestion is to choose that which you feel most strongly drawn towards. Let your soul guide you in your choice.your thoughts create your reality – manifesting your will, whether intentional or not.
If you have absolutely no preference use your beliefs to guide you. If you are Christian, use a cross. If you are Wiccan or pagan, use a pentacle. Whatever your beliefs, use a symbol of significance to your faith.
Before wearing your amulet you do need to prepare it – which is a very basic process. You will need to smudge it. Whilst you are doing this, hold it in both your hands, and concentrate. Think about protection, and what you want from it. As you do this infuse your thoughts into the amulet, activating its power to protect you. Carry it with you to receive its protection.
Crystals and some other stones are powerful when used for protection. They create pure energy environments; they are grounding, healing and have many other magical qualities too. If you want to carry a stone with you purely for protective qualities you are best off to choose a dark coloured crystal one such as onyx, obsidian, aragonite or hematite. Other stones that also offer protection are citrine, amber, and clear quartz.rose quartz crystal
Personally I have found that rose quartz is an impressive means of protection to use if you’re wanting protection specifically from the emotions of other people, and also whilst sleeping. It wards negative energy and disturbing dreams away very well. I have placed them in the rooms of my children for many years to keep away nightmares.
Crystals will need to be prepared in the same way as the amulet, prior to use.
Meditation strengthens your energy field or aura, and provides a barrier between you and other unwanted negative energies. Regular meditation will leave you feeling, focused, energised, attuned and clear. The centered and empowered mental state meditations leaves you in allows you to respond to potential threats consciously and actively. Rather than unconsciously reacting to them when challenged or forced to.
Regular meditation is the key to effectiveness here. You will not get the long term psychic protection you want unless you meditate regularly – at a bare minimum twice a week.meditation, psychic protection, healing, energy balance
Emotional boundaries may sound a little mundane and boring, but they work!! Learn to say NO… and stick to it. If something is not going to be a positive experience for you, turn it down and walk away. As an adult you define what is acceptable and unacceptable in your life, draw your boundaries and stick to them.
The best form of psychic self-defence is to live out your true will. What is your life’s purpose? Who are you and what is your will? When you are living in accordance with your values and in pursuit of your authentic self, the universe will be in harmony with you and support you.
Very little that anyone else does or says will be able to influence, harm or stop you. Your true will, or magical will, is a choice you make to enter into a partnership with ‘the divine’ … it is not your destiny. It is a choice you make actively and must choose to fulfil. If you do, you will find a very real partnership, and one that wholly protects you.
