Psychic & Spiritual Protection

I've included this section because I feel it's the most important part of psychic/spiritual development and is often overlooked and
neglected as part of development. The negative side of development should be made aware of too. This section is not intended to
frighten you or put you off development, I'm just being honest and feel these things should be made aware of.

There are two sides to everything in life good and bad and the same goes for the spirit world, when pass over we don't suddenly
become all holy and angelic, our personalities stay pretty much the same, if we were jokers and loved to play tricks on the earth plane
then chances are when we pass over we will continue to do this for a while, playing tricks with people on the earth plane. Although
some spirit people who play tricks are not always jokers, most cases are spirit people just trying to make you aware of them, most
commonly objects being moved or disappearing altogether, only to turn up a few days later somewhere else.

When we start to develop we start to open ourselves to all kinds of energies and it's important to protect ourselves before any
psychic/spiritual activates and close down after any psychic/spiritual activities to keep us balanced. When developing our auras
become brighter and spirit see this brightness and are attracted to it, just like moths around a light bulb. If we don't close down we
may experience all kinds of emotional problems, the most common are anxiety, depression and feeling drained.

People seem to think that spirit will physically hurt you, well they can but it's very, very rare, the protection is not really for that
reason, protection is more for your own sanity, if a low vibration spirit gets too close it can effect your thoughts, and if this this is a
negative spirit it can make you feel depressed and give you suicidal thoughts, not all negative spirits can make you feel this way
though, people who have often taken their own life can make you feel this way too and this is where the danger lies and why
protection is important in my opinion.


Here are some negative aspects of development that can be experienced...

Sleep disturbances/Insomnia/Paranoia
Confusion/Depression, feeling suicidal and/or drained of energy
Sickness/Dizziness
Hearing negative voices (schizophrenia? although I believe that some cases are of a paranormal nature)
Bad smells (normally resembles rotten eggs)
A feeling of being pulled out of bed while asleep especially when developing the ability to Astral project
Physically being pushed.

This is not intended to frighten you or put you off development, I'm just being honest and feel these things should be made aware of
and to stress the importance of using psychic protection before and after any psychic/spiritual development. Even if were not
developing it's always good to use the exercises below for life in general, to help protect us from negative energies given of by other
people. We could look at ourselves as computers and our protection is our firewall, without a firewall our computers are venerable to all
kinds of problems.

Always make sure you rule out any health issues first before assuming anything of a psychic/spiritual nature.

Methods Of Protection

Protection is largely a state of mind if you feel and trust in your method of protection you will be protected, but you have to use some kind of method for the mind to use it, something visual works best as the mind associates with images better, proven through hypnosis. Not only that when we visualise or have thoughts these are sent out into the atmosphere creating what's known as a thought form.

Like with the bubble exercise below we can create this bubble as a thought form that can actually surround us in the atmosphere to keep out any unwanted energies. There's no real practice to this as most of what we think and visualise is created as a thought form and is sent out into the atmosphere without us really knowing. It doesn't matter what type of protection exercise you use as long as you feel comfortable and trust it. You may already have our own but here's two exercises if you should need them.

Meditation: Protective Bubble
Visualization: Mirror Technique
Another way to protect ourselves from other peoples negative energy is to send it back with love, Imagine yourself surrounded by white mirrors or whatever colour you feel comfortable with, this way if anyone is sending you bad vibes or thoughts it will be reflected back at them, of course with love and light.

Methods Of Closing Down & Grounding

Closing down is what we do after any psychic/spiritual work to close of all links and connections with other energies that we have made either consciously or subconsciously. After any kind of development or psychic/spiritual work we should always close down because we will leave ourselves open during normal day to day activities and we can pick up unnecessary energies from our surroundings, other people and other energies that may be around such as spirit energies.

If you use an exercise to open up before you work psychically/spiritually then ideally you should use that same exercise to close down with, for example lets say when you are opening up you imagine a light that comes into the top of your head and goes down to your feet, then for closing down you would repeat that exercise but in reverse order and take the light back from your feet out of our head, closing of all connections and links or you imagine yourself rising above your body, then to close down you would repeat that by bringing yourself down back to your body. If you don't use a method for opening up then you can use the one below for closing down.

Visualization: The Sleeping Bag
Sit with your feet firmly flat on the floor and then image that you are zipping yourself in an sleeping bag, zip the bag right over your head until you are completely zipped up. The bag doesn't have to be a sleeping bag you can make the bag anything you like or any colour you like, white is a good colour it contains all colours.

Grounding is what we do to get rid of any energy we may have picked up and be holding on to. Doing anything other than psychic/spiritual work, something physical, a hobby, gardening, going out with friends, basically taking time out from psychic/spiritual work and having time for yourself. Even and a hot bath/shower can help get rid of any energy we may be holding on to.

So from protection to grounding with those methods above practiced on a daily basis, you should have little or no problems during your time of developing and working on a psychic/spiritual level.
