As many have read in my book, Cracking Open: Adventures of a Reluctant Medium, I was jolted into the spiritual world by my Grandmother who at the time had been deceased for all of one hour. Back then, I didn’t know anything about spiritual protection. Actually, if you said something in regards to it I would most likely have laughed at you. However, with years of spiritual practices now under my belt I am much more aware of the need for it. We live in a chaotic culture, being exposed to an overabundance of energy, much of it negative. That cranky teller. The driver who cuts you off on the freeway. Your co-worker’s issues with others. Spiritual protection assists you in balancing your energy and keeping it balanced. It is simple, takes less than five minutes, and can mean finding a level of peace you have never experienced before.
When it comes to the concept of protection, some people think of it in terms of protecting their physical body or isolating themselves. In reality, it protects your energetic/spiritual body and most importantly, your mind. And, it does not isolate you. Instead it filters out that which you do not need in your mind and/or life.
What exactly are the effects of protection and what are you protecting yourself from? Protection creates a more solid control over your mind and less influence from sources that are not for your highest good. Some living people in your life may drain you energetically, aka energy vampires. This happens either consciously or subconsciously, and protection can reduce their effects drastically. Also, lost spirits, aka ghosts, can influence our behavior. A simple example… ghosts have been known to wake people up at night. Do your protection around your house tonight and watch yourself get a solid nights sleep! While this is one small example of a reason to protect yourself, there are more serious reasons too. I have witnessed firsthand entity attachment. Entity attachment is where a lost spirit with negative intent attaches itself to you energetically. This can wreak havoc on your mind, and occasionally on your body. With this type of spiritual energy around you, you may find yourself raging angry and over-reacting to things you would have never reacted to before. I get that we can sometimes have a bad day but if you find yourself driving down the road and screaming at the pedestrian walking on the sidewalk because they’re wearing too bright of a colored jacket, well then, something is really wrong! The best way to diagnose someone with an attachment, if you aren’t trained enough to actually see the attachment, is to listen for comments such as… “I don’t know why I’m acting like this, it doesn’t make any sense at all.” Or… “I don’t have a reason to act like this.” While entity attachment it is rare, is the best reason to create a habit of spiritual protection. If you find that you already have an attachment and heard about spiritual protection just a little too late, contact a professional that can help remove the attachment and send it to the light where it belongs.
To all those out there who are interested in the spiritual realm and don’t use protection, I suggest you start. It takes less time than brushing your teeth and is worth the effort! It will make the adventures and experiences far more smooth and even more effective. For spiritual practitioners, it can enhance their ability levels and connections to their clients. Just because you protect yourself spiritually doesn’t mean you will block out the experiences that you wish to have, it just means you’ll block out the experiences you don’t need to have!
The basic formula for spiritual protection consists of cleansing your spiritual body, grounding your energy to the earth and creating a protective energetic shell around yourself.
