Spiritual protection has been used throughout the ages to keep people safe from intrusive negative energies and psychic attack. These days as we live and move in ever closer quarters, it is equally important to remember our protection practices.
As we spend more and more time in the workplace, travelling and interacting with large numbers at concerts, in shopping centres and even on public transport it becomes more and more important in our everyday lives, to know how to protect ourselves from being intruded upon by unwanted negative energies. This blog provides you with a simple and yet highly effective method of spiritual protection.
There is a lot of information available on various websites and within various pages of some great, and some not so great books, on the subject of spiritual protection. As I spoke of in my last blog, it is critical to your spiritual well being to centre and ground yourself. Grounding is so important to your overall well being because it brings together your physical, emotional and spiritual self, ensuring that your energy body stays ‘grounded’ within your earthly body. It helps you to ‘keep your feet on the ground’. Following on, Spiritual protection is the next step.
In the beginning, if you are not accustomed to the process, spiritual protection should be ritualised, that means it should be undertaken daily. Set aside around 15 – 30 minutes each morning to put on your protection, this will become far less time consuming as you become more adept at the process. The benefits of protection will far outweigh the time you put in to learning to master the process. Having great protection will mean that you move through your life without absorbing the negative energies of those around you. It will protect you from deliberate attack, floating negative energies and just plain old ‘bad vibes’.
There are many different points of view on what is the best protection method. There are many who feel that the white light or white bubble method is best. Others advocate for visual imagery of crystal pillars and or majestic white light pillars of protection. Yet others swear by the glass of water left beside the bed method – (if you do use this method please remember that you do not drink the water the morning after and please ensure that you keep the glass only for the use of clearing negative energy, in other words the glass will only ever be used for this purpose not for drinking from at any point in the future).
My favourite protection method, and one that I have successfully shared with many clients, friends and colleagues, is what I call my Gold Light Smudge. I begin by firstly centering myself. This involves taking in four deep breaths, in through my nose and deep down into my abdomen all the way to my sacral chakra, about 2-3 inches below my belly button. I hold the breath for four counts and then exhale the breath through my mouth. I repeat this process four times. Next I ensure that I run a grounding exercise. I am then ready for my protection ritual.
I begin by closing my eyes and imagining the smallest possible cell at the very centre of my solar plexus, its minute, a nano nano cell, the tiniest microscopic speck and I imagine that its pure gold light. I then bring that gold light up and out all at once so it becomes a spreading ball of beautiful, restorative, rejuvenating gold light. I work the light so that it spreads like butter out across my physical being, saturating every cell and moving all the way out until my whole body is pulsating with this golden energy. I continue to move the gold light out beyond the body to encompass my auric field as well. I then lock off and lock in that protection energy.
As you get used to using this method you may find that the light colour changes for you, that’s quite acceptable. I always use the gold energy, as it is not only wonderfully protective, I also find it very healing for my spirit and calming for my nervous system.
I love this method because it ensures that you aren’t accidentally locking anything undesirable into your personal space. By beginning the cleansing from the very core of your being you are effectively displacing any intrusive energy ‘outside’ of yourself, which is exactly where it should be!!
If you have any questions on this method please feel free to send it via email and I will respond to you within 48 hours.
