Psychic protection is another way to say that you feel spiritually safe and secure. It also means that you don’t have the feeling of being “drained” when you are around others.
It’s SO important to feel healthy and safe on your journey. I’ve received a LOT of emails from people who are afraid to pursue their intuitive and mediumship gifts because of fear. And honestly, that makes me sadder than when Mad Men ended.
So let’s have a little chat and get happy. If Don Draper could find peace, so can you. Let’s rock psychic protection.
Here’s Why You Need Psychic Protection
Psychic protection is about one person: YOU.
As an empath, intuitive, medium, healer, or clairsentient, you have beautiful spiritual gifts.
Those gifts can make you SUPER sensitive to energy and that can make you feel emotionally and physically drained. This energy “drain” can leave you feeling:
When you feel spiritually safe and secure, the energy of other people, places, and situations won’t affect you so much (i.e. you won’t get all tired and cranky and yell at your partner because he left the milk on the counter).
Psychic protection is about keeping your energy fields healthy and you feeling good.
It’s not about the boogie-man or saving your soul from a “bad” spirit.
It means that you can give a reading and not feel drained afterwards.
It means that when your best friend complains the entire time you are out together, you don’t need a nap when you get home.
6 Psychic Protection Methods
1. Get to Know Aura Colors
Understanding and working with aura colors is a WONDERFUL tool to have in your psychic protection toolbox. It’s super helpful and – bonus! – it’s relaxing.
Psychic Protection Exercise with Aura Colors
Let’s say you’ve been with a friend who is often negative. When you get home you feel tired and blah.
Take 10 minutes and try this (it works best when take a few moments to fully relax while doing it):
Stop for a moment and think about how you want to feel.
Healthy? Strong? Full of energy? The aura color red is the symbol of physical strength and power.
- Imagine yourself surrounded by a bright red glow. Sense the strength and power of the red energy. You are in total possession of it. Allow your mind and body to feel strong and vibrant again. Breathe. Send this uplifting energy through the neural pathways in your body and let it envelop your aura.
To protect your emotions next time you are with your friend, imagine yourself being wrapped in blue. People with high vibrations have deep royal blue auras. They feel aligned and balanced spiritually, physically, and emotionally.
Feel at peace with your soul. You’ll be sending the thoughts of true and right consciousness down to your body and you’ll feel the protection.
2. Spiritual Grounding for Psychic Protection
This psychic protection method is also great if you feel ungrounded after giving a reading.
- Sit or stand with your feet firmly planted on the earth. Face your palms upward in a position to receive.
- Envision a tree trunk growing through the base of your spine down into the earth and spreading its roots.
- Breathe gently and deeply several times. Unify yourself with the ideas of safety and protection. Take as long as you’d like until you feel grounded.
Tip: If you can, do this grounding exercise outside where your feet can touch the earth.
Once you’re grounded, entertain the thoughts of protecting your energy. It’s very empowering to do that inside this meditation.
3. Understand darkness and light
For me, one of the BEST psychic protection methods I have is remembering this: Darkness means the absence of Light.
You’re a loving, heart-centered person. If something or someone feels dark, shine a light in there. The light you shine is the light of truth, of goodness, of the true nature of mankind.
Kindness and compassion lie on the other side of bullying.
Consideration and honesty lie on the other side of manipulation.
To protect yourself against dark thought and dark places, go directly to the opposite thought and hold it in your heart.
Practice opening your heart every day. I cannot stress enough how life changing this simple psychic protection exercise is.
Soon, negativity will affect you less, your energy will elevate, and you’ll feel protected psychically.
If you give a reading to someone who is has a negative attitude, shine your light on them. Look below the surface. Look at them on the soul level. See the truth.
With these kinds of thoughts in your mind, your aura will feel protected.
4. Crystals, stones, smudging and candles
For me personally, I feel that the most powerful psychic protection tool I have is my mind. My positive thoughts definitely make me feel more secure than anything else.
That said some people like using crystals, candles or sage. For me, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my sage spray! (affiliate link) Love – like the way Joanna loves Chip and Fred loves Wilma!
It is sooooo much easier than burning a sage stick, plus, I can keep a bottle in my bedroom, in my living room, and in my car.. My kids love the stuff, too (and I don’t have to worry about them burning the house down).
I adore this stuff and it smells incredible!
Tip: The laws of the Universe will back you up. If in your heart, you feel a certain crystal will help with psychic protection, then that may be a wonderful tool for you. Don’t overthink it, just get one that you like.
5. Your Psychic Protection Shield: White Light
If you discover negative energies such as anger, fear, sadness, or America’s national pastimes – hurry and worry – imagine surrounding yourself with a white pure light.
White light helps protect us from energy-drain. It’s a wonderful psychic protection tool because it is the symbol for the purest and strongest attributes of the soul. It’s been called the “soul’s armor.”
Think of it as your psychic protection shield.
Each morning, imagine being surrounded in a white opaque light that’s impenetrable. When you put up this psychic shield, nothing and no one can get through to you.
If you feel an energy overload coming on, surround yourself with white light. It can provide you some relief.
You can also create the shield for yourself, your family, your home, and even your pets!
6. The Ultimate Psychic Protection
Making it your intention to live a heart-centered life with a high energetic vibration. A high vibration is the best psychic protection.
What’s the best way to get to a high vibration? Live from your heart and follow joy.
Can psychic protection really be as simple as following joy and being happy? Yes. It’s simple, but it ain’t easy!
- Take time for yourself each day
- Follow your heart
- Spread love
- Take that class you’ve been wanting to take
- Leave the dishes in the sink tonight and play with your dog instead
- Practice raising your vibration by meditating, listening to music, or going for walks in nature
- Remember that we’re all spiritual beings
Keeping your energy fields high will give you a sense of positivity and make you feel less vulnerable – it’s a “natural” psychic protection.
