The best psychic protection will always be a mind that is flexible. Flexibility gives strength, sensitivity and clarity. It is also self-nurturing. The path of power is primarily about developing this deep strength, however for the journey there will be times when we realize that we would benefit from some additional help.
There are many forms of psychic shields – all of them are based on the inter-action of energy to ward off other types of energy. One of the most common shields throughout the ages is singing to oneself when one is scared. The energy created offends the energy of negative entities and they often seek to leave. The same principle holds for spiritual chanting and mantras although the realization and connection to holy and spiritual consciousness through the chanting is able to enhance the properties of the energy to a generally higher frequency.
Play with this exercise:
Take a slow, deep breath.
Make an “ah” sound – similar to “far.”
Allow the sound to be vocalized easily and effortlessly.
Depending on the situation you can practice this aloud or sub-vocally (silently) in the mind.
Practice with different pitches resonating first from the lower abdomen, moving up through into the chest area, throat, head and above the head.
Notice how a frequency in the lower abdomen area may give a more grounded feeling.
Observe how a frequency intoned and visualized above the head may give a lighter, “higher” type of energy.
Observe how these different frequencies impart different protective qualities.
Another form of psychic protection is the well-known and loved “white light.” This has a similar effect to singing in that it brings an energy into the users body and consciousness that negativity generally finds repulsive. This is the same reason that some energy healers use it.
Work with this exercise:
Close your eyes and visualize yourself in the third person.
See and feel yourself surrounded by solid white light.
Breath slowly and deeply.
With each breath see the light filling your body and the space around you.
As you exhale feel the white light intensify and strengthen.
Observe it surrounding and infusing your space.
Program it with the intention to protect and revive you.
Filling the abdomen with prana and broadcasting this energy is also an effecive method of protection. This method can be explained by comparing the body to that of a car tire. When the tire is full of air it is resilient and more impervious to impact. The body works in a similar way with prana – when we are full of prana it is more difficult for other frequencies to enter our space. There are of course many other areas besides the abdomen where we can fill ourselves with prana. The heart chakra is also popular – which brings on the saying “drive off negativity with love.”
Work with this exercise:
Breath in slowly and deeply. Hold for a few seconds and release slowly and deeply.
Again breathing in slow and deep. Feel and visualize the breath filling your abdomen.
Hold and feel the energy expanding easily and powerfully throughout your body.
Exhale and feel it broadcasting from your body and filling the space around you.
Repeat until you feel a tangible power inside and surrounding you.
Another powerful method is to simply walk in universal light or “God’s light”. It works by connecting to an energy or consciousness that is able and willing to protect you. The emphasis on this exercise especially is that God’s light, universal force – whatever you want to call it is perceived as all powerful. This places our consciousness in a position of communicating with an energy which is able to manifest effortlessly. I believe this to be one of the reasons why many people who claim that they simply live their lives walking in “God’s light” ask for and practice nothing else. They have learnt to communicate with this consciousness to create at the very least the internal world that they want.
Work with this exercise:
Visualize yourself going up out of the planet. See and feel yourself flying straight out. You can visualize yourself as a body, as light, as a star – whatever works for you. Know that you will meet the God Force. Allow it to come to you.
Connect with it.
Return to your body and pull and attract the energy to surround and bathe you.
Protection visualizations can get pretty creative – anything from guardian arch angels with flaming swords, to glowing pyramids and butterflies. If the method works it is because the energy or feeling behind it is effective. This is the foundation behind all of these examples. They all connect to frequencies which the mind perceives as being supportive and protective. The perception that there is opportunity to see, feel and move differently is realized and our overall awareness is allowed to shift to one where we feel safe and protected. This shift occurs at the physical, mental and spiritual levels of consciousness depending on our intention. Feel for the deepest and most genuine level of protection and it will exist.
