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...
Confusion/Depression, feeling suicidal and/or drained of energy
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.
