The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Circle of Protection

The circle is a continuous, unbroken figure. It signifies unity, completion, infinity and cycles. By nature the circle is a boundary that has no opening, making the interior a space that is untouchable. For this reason the circle is a sacred protective sigil.

Creating a circular boundary is an ancient form of spiritual protection. The space within the circle becomes consecrated ground. The circle itself becomes a barrier keeping all unwelcomed things at bay.

A protective circle can be placed around buildings, objects and people. Anything stationary can be easily placed in a circle.

A circle of salt is one of the most common, and powerful ways to create a protective boundary. Simply draw a circle around the object with a fine line of sea salt. As you lay the circle envision the salt glowing a bright violet color. Whatever is within the circle’s interior is protected from harm.

You can create a protective boundary by making a circle of red thread. Encircle whatever you are trying to protect, and then tie the threads ends together by knotting it three times.

You can use cornmeal in the same manner as salt. You can even draw a circle with white or red chalk. The circle and the substance combined create an energetic barrier that cannot be penetrated by negative energetic influences.

The protective quality of the circle is temporary. Reform the circle at least every few weeks. Or more often if the boundary has been tampered with or has withstood strong negative blows.

Creating a protective circle around your home is a very basic way to use this effective tool!

The Gypsy’s Tricks For Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Psychic Armor

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.

What psychically unsafe situations have you found yourself in? Have you experienced any of these symptoms? How do you protect yourself psychically?

The Gypsy’s Ticks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Jack-O-Lanterns

It’s my favorite time of year…Halloween! I’m sure you’ve felt the chill of an unseen visitor or the faint smell of perfume out of nowhere or maybe you’ve heard a few raps on the attic door as you passed by. Don’t be surprised, it’s Halloween the traditional time when the veil between this world and the world beyond is at it’s thinnest! Now the spirits of those who have passed are free to roam among us!

Have you ever wondered why we dress up on Halloween? Or maybe why we light Jack-O-Lanterns? It’s very simple really; these are tools of protecting ourselves from the otherworldly visitors. We wear mask so that the living and the dead can walk freely among each other without detection. We light the Jack-O-Lantern for safety.

The Jack-O-Lantern is an ancient tool of spiritual protection from ghost, demons, evil and harm. The Celts would carve gnarly faces into gourds, vegetables and pumpkins as a way to scare off anything that went bump in the night.

So if you are feeling particularly spooked this Halloween, and you want to ward off a few unwelcomed guest… carve some fancy pumpkins with toothy grins and twisted smiles. Light a black candle to place in the center and say this little prayer:

“Spirits roaming on Halloween Night,

Unwanted guest that give a fight,

I summon the protection of the Jack-O-Lantern’s light,

Ward off all evil that may elude my sight.”

Happy Halloween!!

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: The Psychic Vacuum

Here’s a nice piece for sale!

If you’ve been keeping up with The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection, then here is a new tip that is easy and affective. I call this “The Psychic Vacuum”. It’s a great way to continually cleanse a space of negative energy, without much effort on your part.

All you will need for this method is amethyst crystals. You will need at least one amethyst crystal per room or space you are working in. It doesn’t matter how big or small the stone is, or if it’s raw or tumbled. If there is an area that tends to feel especially “off” or tense then you may wish to add more than one amethyst crystal.

Step one: You will need to run the amethyst crystals under cold water for a few seconds. This washes away built up energy within the crystal. And if you want you can run white light into the crystal as explained in the introduction.

Step two: Hold the crystals in your hands to activate them. All you need to do is cup your hands around the crystals and with eyes closed, envision them acting like a vacuum or filter, sucking all negative energy out of the atmosphere and allowing only positive, light energy to remain!

Step three: Place a crystal in a secure place within each room you are cleansing. You could put them in corners, inside vases, in the fruit bowl on the counter, on shelves or even out in the open.

Once placed, the crystals filter the energies that hang in the atmosphere of the room, allowing only positive energy to remain. This is very affective and can be combined with other forms of cleansing.

Step four: Empty the vacuum! Every few weeks gather the crystals and repeat the first three steps again. It’s important to clear away any energy that they’ve “vacuumed” up! You may want to do this more frequently if the energy is feeling especially chaotic or after a dramatic event in the space. 

For a personal cleansing you can follow the first two steps (cleansing and activating the crystal). Then with the amethyst held in-hand, rub it along your body as if you were washing off with a bar of soap. This will allow the crystal to absorb any negative or stagnant energy lingering within your aura.

Do this as often as you like! After you’ve “vacuumed off”, run the crystal under cold water and store it in a safe place until your next session.

Have fun and check back for more tips and ticks!

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Introduction

Have you ever stepped into a room that felt peculiar? Have you ever placed your hands on an object that just didn’t feel right? Have you ever found yourself in a foul mood for no reason? Sounds to me like you need some spiritual cleansing and protection!!

We have all had those uncanny experiences of taking on another persons mood, feeling on edge in a room after a fight, or not wanting to go near that old object for no logical reason. It may seem like it’s all in your head, but it’s actually you being affected by energy.

We are all made up of energy, we are constantly interacting with energy and we are always directing energy. Thought forms linger and hang heavy in the air like bubbles. Energy collects like dust. Everything takes on an aura that is part intrinsic life force and part accumulated clutter of everything that has ever come into contact with it… you included!

Spiritual cleansing is the act of energetically clearing the slate. You wipe away all debris that has accumulated over time from different experiences. This can make a space feel lighter and brighter, it can improve your mood and release any uneasy feelings that may hang in the atmosphere.

Everything can be spiritually cleansed and protected. Begin with yourself and your home. But don’t neglect spiritually cleansing and protecting your vehicle, your pets and all other objects in your life! Always spiritually cleanse anything foreign you’ve drug into your life: old furniture, books, objects from the thrift-store, everything!

Spiritual cleansing should be a part of your daily routine. If you practice spiritual cleansing and protection you will feel much more vital and positive. You give yourself the chance to fully utilize your energy for conscious manifestation!

So I’m sure by now you are asking, “How do I do this magical business?” ….well let me share with you a few basic techniques:

Basic Spiritual Cleansing Exercise:

Fumigation is one of the simplest and most effective forms of spiritual cleansing. This lifts the negative or stray energetic debris creating a fresh and balanced aura.

All you need is a smudge of cedar or sage or a stick of your favorite incense.

Light your smudge and begin wafting the smoke around whatever object you are cleansing or yourself if you are performing a self-cleansing. Allow the smoke to encompass the object.

You can also perform this simple ritual in your home by wafting smoke into corners, closets, doorways and windows. Make sure you allow smoke to creep into the dark places. Remember, if it collects dust, then it collects stray energy!

I recommend doing this weekly or when you are feeling under the weather or need to clear the air! This should also be performed anytime you bring a new object into your life or if you move into a new space.

Basic Spiritual Protection Exercise:

Spiritual protection is a form of “sealing” the aura so that good energies stay in and unwanted energies stay out. This will disentangle your energy from that of other people and stop you from taking on the mood of others or keep you from feeling drained.

Basic visualization is all you need for this exercise. Close your eyes, focus on your breathing and allow yourself to get to a place of ease. Begin by seeing a waterfall of pure, white light flowing from the Universe and encompassing whatever you are spiritually protecting.

The white light will create a spiritual force field around the object of your visualization. I recommend doing this as often as possible. You should begin each day by spiritually protecting yourself. Put up your white light before meetings, if you are meeting with someone particularly cantankerous, or when you are on edge.

You can read more about white-light exercises, here.

There are many forms of spiritual protection and cleansing. Some are more in-depth than others, but the basic results are the same. I will be posting new tips, tricks and techniques regularly.
