Psychic protection is the subject on which I receive most queries and I believe that personal energy enhancement is the single most important step you can take to make yourself healthy, happy and whole. Protecting, cleansing and strengthening your personal energy field and the environment around you is vital. One of the first protection techniques I learned over forty five years ago was to picture jumping into a shiny new dustbin and pulling the lid down whenever negativity was around. I still use this image. The same applies to cord cutting which is the best tool for improving relationships, or setting yourself free from one that as passed its sell-by date, but I now realise how important it is to check for hooks located in the vibratory bodies and the subtle chakras such as the spleen under the left armpit. This is where the energy vampires hook in to get their fix.
You may know that good vibrations are essential if you are to live life to the full enjoying excellent health, inner serenity and joie de vivre. The clearer and more contained your energy field and the space you inhabit, the better your life will be. The brighter your outlook and the more you put out positive vibrations and harness the power of your intent, the more you get back positive experiences. If you are not yet aware, simple steps to change toxic thinking, amplify your energy field and heighten your vibrations will improve your well being, contain your energy field, safeguard against subtle invasion, and create a safe space in which to live, love and work.
If you are a therapist, counsellor or work with people in any capacity, space and personal clearing are essential and should be made a regular part of your day as it is so easy to ‘pick up stuff’ and take it on as your own. Taking care of your own energy field is the greatest gift you can give yourself and those you come into contact with.
Grounding is essential if you are to remain protected. Being in full contact with the planet literally makes you invulnerable.
Ultimately, the best protection of all is to literally rise above it all energetically, making your vibrations as bright and high as possible so that nothing sticks, nothing negative touches you, you are invincible. When that happens, I hope you will pass this information onto someone who needs it.
The grounding cord
Crystals: Flint, Eye of the Storm (Judy’s Jasper), Graphic Smoky Quartz, Hematite, Smoky Quartz, Smoky Quartz Elestial
This simple grounding exercise anchors you to the planet, re-energises you from the Earth, and allows freedom of movement in order to reach higher or further dimensions of consciousness, to journey inwards or back into the past, and to safely access the Akashic Record. Remember to cleanse and dedicate your crystals before you begin the exercise.
- Cleanse the aura and chakras with Flint and/or Anandalite (if you don’t have Anandalite or the other crystals you can use the cards in The Crystal Wisdom Healing Oracle pack.)
- Stand with your feet slightly apart, well balanced on your knees and hips. Feet flat on the floor. Place a Flint, Eye of the Storm (Judy’s Jasper), Graphic Smoky Quartz, Hematite, Smoky Quartz, Smoky Quartz Elestial or other grounding stone at your feet.
- Picture the earth star chakra about a foot beneath your feet opening like the petals of a water lily.
- Place your hands just below your navel (tummy button) with fingertips touching and palms out towards the hips.
- Picture roots spreading across your belly, into your hips and then down through your legs and out of your feet to meet in the grounding stone.
- The two roots twine together and pass down through the Earth Star and the Gaia Gateway, going deep into the earth. They pass through the outer mantle, down past the solid crust and deep into the molten magma.
- When the entwined roots have passed through the magma, they reach the big iron crystal ball at the centre of the planet.
- The roots hook themselves around this ball, holding you firmly in incarnation and helping you to be grounded in incarnation.
- Energy and protection can flow up this root to keep you energised and safe
- Allow the roots to pass up from the Earth Star through your feet, up your legs and the knee chakras and into your hips. At your hips the roots move across to meet in the base chakra and from there to the sacral and the dantien just below your navel. The energy that flows up from the centre of the Earth can be stored in the dantien.
Note: Whenever you are in an area of disturbed earth energy, or a place where you have a traumatic previous life or geneagological connections, protect your Earth Star and Gaia Gateway chakras by visualising a large protective crystal all around them. The root will still be able to pass down to the centre of the earth to bring powerful energy to support you, and the crystal will help to transmute and stabilise the negative energy. A virtual crystal can work equally well when visualised with intent, but placing an actual crystal here intensifies the effect.
The Amber Melt
To protect your energies, simply hold a piece of Amber over your heart and picture it melting into a honey-like substance that coats the outside of your aura, solidifying to form a protective coating.
The Malachite Power Surge
If you feel powerless or low in energy, tape a tumbled Malachite crystal over the spleen chakra a hand’s breadth below your left armpit (or wear it in your bra). This intense crystal makes you feel power-full. It also helps you to resist others having power over you or vampirising your energy. Malachite’s energy can be very intense. If this is the case, use Aventurine or Green Fluorite.
Cutting an energy drain
If you become aware that being around a certain person, speaking to them on the phone or by email, or simply thinking about them, drains your energy, you are probably tied together energetically by an energy drain.
In your mind’s eye, picture the person. Image a cord linking the two of you. Take a big pair of gold scissors. Chopping the cord into little pieces, work from you towards the other person. Visualise a plaster of healing light over where the cord was attached. If the cord goes deep, image a laser scalpel cutting it out. Check that there are no more cords, particularly around the spleen area. If there are, repeat the cutting.
If you are non-visual: take a piece of cord and a large pair of scissors. Place a photograph of the other person at one end of the cord and hold the other end. Firmly chop the cord into pieces. Chopping the photograph into pieces also will not harm the other person. Burn or compost the pieces.
The spleen chakra protector
Crystals: Green Aventurine, Jade
Use your crystal to unhook and dissolve any ties or cords in your spleen chakra – about a hand’s breath below your left armpit.
Starting from a point just in front of and below your arm pit, use your crystal to draw a pyramid extending forward to your waist and backwards to the centre of your back. This pyramid enfolds your spleen and keeps it safe.
Protecting your energies
EMF fields can be lethal to those who are sensitive to them (see Crystal Prescriptions volume 3). Wear Shungite or Black Tourmaline to protect you against EMF emanations or other people’s thoughts and ill intentions. Tape one to your mobile phone to protect you from the devastating effects that a mobile phone can have on your biomagnetic field (it shatters when one is switched on). Use Smoky Quartz to block the effect of mobile phone or Tetra masts. Wear Shattuckite and Ajoite if you feel nauseous, headachy or weak in the vicinity of power lines or a mast.
You will find many other techniques for protecting your energy in Crystal Prescriptions volume 5.
