When you put your focus on things that you cannot control, you begin to deplete your energy. This creates a cycle of pulling toward you, and manifesting exactly what you DON’T want! Your thoughts are a powerful magnet, pulling into your life whatever you choose to focus on!
Take note throughout your day of the quality of your thoughts. Track where your mind goes. What are you focusing on? What are you giving your energy to? What mental dialogue are you having with yourself? Write down your thoughts, evaluate them, and ask yourself if they are in alignment with the things you wish to manifest!
How often do you have an opposing thought toward exactly what you are WANTING in your life?
Begin with this list and start to become more mindful of the things that you tell yourself and put your mental energy into. Train yourself to think more positive and affirming thoughts. Whenever you have a negative thought, catch it, imagine a big red line crossing it out, and replace it with a positive thought.

Lets face it we all have negative people in our lives. They can be toxic and draining. Sometimes the amount of negative energy being thrown at us can be so overwhelming that you can’t bare it any longer. It begins seeping into your own thought patterns and tainting your energetic story. You love them, you can’t live without them… but it seems unbearable to live with them at times! How do you combat the negative influence of these people? Here are a few tips for dealing with negative energy from people in your life.
- Be Clear. Be clear with your perspective of what you believe, want and need out of life. Often times the most influential negative people link into our weak spots and feed our insecurities which leads us down the rabbit hole and further into chaos. Be firm with what you want and need out of life. When they oppose those beliefs stay strong… and send them positive energy. Never feed their misery. Shine the light on their darkness. We all need that now and again.
- Create Boundaries. Boundaries are always essential because they tell energy where to go, and not to go. When it comes to negative people they usually want something from you. They want to link into your abundant positive energy and feed off of it. Or they want someone to fumble in the dark with them. If you create boundaries it keeps this from happening! The easiest boundary you can create is the White Light of protection.
- Reflect. Be open and honest with yourself. Ask yourself why this person is targeting you. Is it because they feel so close to you that they can confide in you? Is it because you are typically a positive person? Or a negative person? Is this a spouse? Or someone you feel responsible for? People are often mirrors, and their actions toward us can shed light on our own personalities and perspective.
- Tele Talk. When a person is especially difficult to deal with, and you feel your efforts never get through to them. Then talk to them telepathically. Spend 5-10 minutes a day sending them positive, affirmative and clear mental messages or pictures of what you are trying to get across to them. This should be informative, not judgmental. This will seep into their psyche and often come out in waking life without them even realizing it.
- Ground. Grounding is an important energetic step in daily life. You should ground yourself when you feel scattered, flighty, dull or just off. There are many methods you can use, but you can easily ground by placing your bare feet on the earth for a few minutes. Or doing a few yoga poses such as a few rounds of sun salutation. Do this after you’ve had an intense encounter with someone negative.
- Sweeten Things Up! Try a little folk method of sweetening things up between you and the person, or the situation. Write the name of those who are being negative or moody on a piece of paper 9 times. Write your name over their name in a crisscross fashion. Place it in a clean jar with a lid, and pour honey or sugar over it. The “sweet” energy of the sugar or honey will surround them and add sweetness to everyone involved.
I hope these techniques help you deal with the negativity in your life. Sometimes the best thing in these situations is to completely cut the source of negativity out of your life. This isn’t always easy, but it is very powerful.
The old saying is true… you are the company you keep!
I hope these suggestions offer something for your spiritual practice! Please, let me know if you have any other questions.

Do you feel icky in public? Does your mood instantly change for no reason? Do you ever feel thick clouds hanging heavy over a room? Do you experience thoughts that come from nowhere? How about feeling like someone is in your bubble? Sounds like you need to put on some psychic armor!
The Reality of Energy
There is a never endless storm of energies brewing around you. Energy hangs heavy in the air and floats about, mostly, undetected. People invade your space by trying to intermingle their alien energies with your own. It is easy to be caught in the tangled web of energy, which leads to mood poisoning, energetic cords and attachments. These are all signs of a weakened psychic shield.
The importance of surrounding yourself with energetic protection is the utmost! Your energy is a glowing, swirling mass of beautiful golden light. It is magnetic, brilliant and sparkling. To quote Gollum, it is, “The precious!” Your energetic field is your life force, a conglomeration of everything that you are… and if you aren’t psychically protected, everything you encounter!
Your aura is filled with all the thoughts, feelings and experiences you have. You’ve also collected a number of attachments, and cords in your aura, which eat away at your energy and leave you drained. It’s the equivalent of leaving your wifi unlocked… But WORSE!
You Need Psychic Protection When
If you have difficulty sleeping at night. If you feel foggy at work. If you are drained after spending time with a particular person. If you are drained, angry, anxious, depressed, physically sick and spaced out. If you feel like people are pulling at your energy, thus draining it. Or you are taking on other people’s energy.
You can become a victim to a psychic vampire (someone who sucks away your essence) or pick up empathetic impressions (you take on the emotions/ mental state of someone else).
Protect your energy! Protect your life-force! Protect your precious!
What You Can Do
Surround yourself with a shield of protection! Regardless of how you perceive Divinity, you have access to spiritual protection. You should surround yourself with a beautiful bubble of divine light. Have you had your does of white light today?
If not… try this! Visualize a white light falling from above, like water, encompassing your entire body, from head to toe. See the light surround you in a warm, robust bubble of white fire. As you surround yourself, set the intention that, “Only energies serving my highest good may enter this divine shield”. Nothing can cross this shield!
Take It a Step Further
Visualize a shield of mirrors, reflecting outward, surrounding the bubble of white light. These mirrors will deflect any negativity and harm sent your way. Intended, “All harm and negativity sent toward me shall be deflected”.
If you are feeling particularly vulnerable you can call your angels and spirit guides in. Remember, your guides are most helpful when you ask for them. You can ask for the aid of any angel, deity, master or saint that feels right to you.
I often call upon Archangel Michael. He is the divine protector. His energy is intense, vibrant, loving and extremely powerful. He always appears to me as a tall, dark headed man, with a beautiful smile, chiseled jaw and sturdy figure. His eyes burn with devotion and authority. His gestures are gentle, and filled with grace. He wields a fiery sward to ward off harm, and cut through negativity.
When I call Archangel Michael, I ask him and his band of helpers to stand beside me. To protect me from all harm. And to cut away any negative and stray energy which may be affecting me. I know without a doubt that he is there.
Explore what works for you!
Begin with the simple white light exercise. This is the easiest way to protect yourself. You can do it in a flash. Whenever you are feeling invaded and vulnerable, close your eyes, take a deep breath and see the light surround you. Zip yourself in tight!
You may find a certain color, other than white, makes you feel safe and secure. You can surround yourself with colors of any particular intention, along with your white light. You can see yourself surround by a shield of any material. Whatever works for you to create a strong and sturdy energetic shield!
Try it before taking the bus to work, or before going into a stressful meeting or entering a busy coffee shop.
See what happens. It couldn’t hurt to try a little white light!! I promise it will help.

Bells are ethereal. They vibrate deep in your body and enter your soul. Sound affects us on many levels, triggering mental and emotional responses. Because of this bells have been used for centuries as a way of signaling, time keeping and warning.
Bells have held sacred significance for many cultures. The Japanese use bells for ceremonies, bringing good luck and even communicating with a ancestors. Bells were believed to ward off the mischievous fairies. And, some say that bells rung in the house bring prosperity
Because of the vibratory nature of bells they are an extremely effective form of spiritual cleansing and protection. Bells can ward off negativity and unwanted visitors, this is the origin of the funeral toll. The vibrations from the bells will break up the negative and stagnant energy left hanging in the air. They move and jolt to life the stagnant and worn-out.
Simply chiming them in a rhythmic fashion will move the energy and lift the spirits. The louder the bells are rung, the more powerful the effect. The shamans drum and the Buddhist singing bowl can be used in a similar fashion.
Try ringing a bell a few times in a room that feels heavy or after a fight or conflict took place. If you are feeling clouded or fuzzy headed ringing a bell a few times around your aura. You can hang bells by the front door so that when someone enters or exits, the bells renew the energy in the area.
What’s your favorite spiritual cleansing ritual? Do you have any special techniques, or traditions?

This is a technique that I happened across years ago. I’m not really sure anymore where the recipe originated, but it’s a powerful tool for spiritual cleansing. This is a asperging method, meaning that it uses water, or in this case steam, to cleanse and bless an area.
This method calls upon one of the tried and true methods of spiritual cleansing: vinegar. Vinegar has been regarded as an agent of protection and exorcism for years. It’s been said to banish misfortune, negativity, illness and evil (and it does a bang up job on germs too).
To Perform This Ritual:
Boil rice vinegar in a shallow pan. Once it steams you can carefully carry it from room to room, letting the steam waft around (especially in dark corners, and cluttered spaces). The steam will cleanse the vibrations and absorb what doesn’t feel right.
It’s also beneficial to burn new white candles in a room after you’ve cleansed it with this method. It seals in the positive energy and attracts the favor of benevolent forces.
You can also add rice vinegar to a warm bath. The steaming from the bath will have the same effect on your aura. Try soaking for at least 15 minutes. You can add a prayer to the ritual if you like.
How are you feeling energetically? Have you been in a funk, and don’t know why? Do you have any icky feelings that you can’t shake? Is your home feeling off, or looking cluttered?
What experiences have you had with spiritual cleansing and protection?

For hundreds of years people of used powdered herbs to ward off negativity and exercise evil from their lives. The simple act of sprinkling a few cloves of garlic around a room is an effective form of spiritual protection. Or creating a circle of cloves to seal the space.
To eliminate negativity, unsettling emotions and stray astral entities, try this Exorcism Powder:
Grind and mix together… Dried basil leaves with a sprig of rosemary, purple yarrow flowers, rue and myrrh. You can add to the mix a dash of salt if you like.
Sprinkle the power around the room being exercised. You can also place the powder in red flannel bags and tuck into pillows, under cushions or hang in closets. Add to a carrier oil of jojoba and mark symbols of protection over doorways. OR encircle a fresh white candle with the powder and light in a room that needs a lift.

People would fasten springs of angelica to the staff of a rounded broom and hang it in the main room of their home as a charm against negativity.
Another powerful form of protection was to lay the broom across the threshold of your home when you were away, as it created a barrier, which unwanted harm could not cross.
To cleanse a room of negative energy sweep from west to east. This moves negativity from the space leaving it spiritually sound. As you sweep visualize dark, sludgy energy being brushed away with the dirt. Seal the working by seeing the room filled with white light.
