Sorry that I have been out of circulation for a bit. Had an accident and just about lost my right index finger. As it was, it was crushed and mangled and I'm right handed so typing has been a bit of a challenge. It is healing, not very flexible yet, but I have learned to type, sort of, without it for now. This little incident caused me to think a lot about psychic protection.
You put on a seat belt when you get in a car for protection, just in case you are involved in an accident, not because you are fearful or expect one, just in case. You probably carry an umbrella when it looks like it might rain . . . again, just in case. We need psychic protection for the same reason . . . just in case.
We live in a world full of negative energy and it affects us because we are energy beings. We live in an environment made up of energy soup, and not all the ingredients in the soup are good, and we didn't add most of them to the soup recipe. Its just like ordering soup in a restaurant. The server delivers the bowl of soup to the table and I eat whatever the cook put in the soup. Its not my recipe but I ingest the soup and it becomes part of me.
Here are two things that I do every day . . . just in case, that you might want to incorporate into your daily routine. First, I always carry a black tourmaline crystal in my pocket. Black tourmaline and black obsidian are crystals that absorb negative energy. Every evening in cleanse the crystals by running cold water over them and once a month, on the new moon, I set the crystals out in moon light to absorb the reflected energy of the sun.
The second thing that I do every morning, and again every evening, is sit in meditation and create a light capsule around me. I sit and form a sphere of glowing, white light above my head, spin the sphere and shrink in down to about the size of a golf ball and then direct in from my crown chakra into my heart through my heart chakra. I then visualize this glowing ball of energy growing bigger ad bigger so that its diameter encompasses all of my energy bodies. This energetic sphere contains all of my positive energy within and reflects away any negative energy that I walk through or that is directed at me.
In the evening I do the same thing except I expand the sphere of glowing white energy outwards until it surrounds my home and family and then I go to sleep having set a protective sphere around all of us.
As with all things in life, the more that you practice something the better you get at it. The more you practice encapsulating yourself within and energetic bubble, a capsule of light the better you will get at it and the stronger your capsule will be.
Stay safe my friends.
