6 Ways to Deal With Negative People

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Aura Repair Tea

The aura is composed of layers of energy intricately woven together. When there is a weak spot, or a hole in the aura, energy begins to leak away causing you to feel lethargic, disoriented, angry, or confused. Spiritual cleansing and shielding is essential to keep this from happening!

One trick to help strengthen and heal the aura is to use an Aura Repair Tea. This allows the gossamer fibers of the aura to reconstruct. Reweaving and repairing holes, leaks and tears.

Here are few recipes:

Rose and Sage Tea

You will see that I am very fond of roses in my spiritual cleansing recipes because they work in a very gentle way, but they yield big results. When taken as a tea the rose essence works with the natural structure of the aura to help regenerate itself. Sage is powerful because it purges the aura of negativity; the rose fills in the gaps! 

For one pot of tea add 2 cups of dried rose petals, one cup of sage leaves, to 3 cups of spring water.

Let the tea steep for 5-10 minutes before drinking. As the tea steeps pray for divine light to bless the water. You can call on Mother Mary if you feel a connection with her essence.

Yarrow and Peppermint Tea

Yarrow purges the aura and jumpstarts it’s natural abilities to repair itself. It has a similar energy to rose, but it tends to be a little more protective because of its astringent qualities. Yarrow is the mythological plant used by Achilles, hence the Latin name, Achillea millefolium.

Peppermint lightens the aura and infuses it with a good dose of positive energy. Peppermint is a very magnetic herb and attracts “good fortune”. Peppermint is overall invigorating.

It’s good to add the two together because of Yarrows slightly bitter taste.

For one pot of tea add 3 teaspoons of dried yarrow flowers, one cup of dried peppermint leaves, to 3 cups of spring water.

A NOTE ON TEA

You can experiment with combining the above herbs. You can use all 4 together, or each separately. Yarrow shouldn’t be taken daily. Sage, Rose, and Peppermint can be taken daily. Peppermint is a wonderful tea to start the morning with because it jumpstarts physical body, and charges the aura.

DO NOT drink herbal teas if you are pregnant.

ALWAYS consult a doctor, and research the side effects of herbs before taking them internally. 

I am NOT a doctor, nor am I liable for your health. 

These recipes are for your personal use. 

Use at your own risk!

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 Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Energetic Investments

Do you wonder why you can’t get someone off your mind? Are you frustrated with your dreams? Do things seem to be going all wrong? Are you chronically dealing with an unresolved issue?

I have some secrets to share…

First, you need to understand energy. You need to understand how to use energy. Energy is currency. You give your energy to specific people, places, things, ideas, feelings, beliefs, fears, etc. You invest your energy the way you invest money.

When you make an energetic investment you have to ask yourself, “Is this going to pay off?” Because if it’s not then you’ve wasted vital energy. You want your energetic investments to feed your energy, to help it multiply! If your investments multiply, then you can invest in new things.

You make an energetic investment every time you take something to be true. You make an energetic investment every time you make yourself responsible for something. You make an energetic investment every time you dwell on something. You make an energetic investment every time you are afraid of something. And on and on it goes.

If you aren’t aware of your energetic investments, then you quickly have nothing! You feel stifled. You feel impoverished. You feel angry. You feel lethargic. You will as though nothing you want in life ever happens!

When you make an energetic investment, you make a commitment to give your energy to something. Will it pay off?

Energetic investments don’t stop at the initial transaction they are a continuous commitment. When you commit to someone in a relationship, you energetically invest in them… you establish a cord between your heart and theirs. You’ve  given them a direct pipeline to your essence.

Ah! Now you see why negative relationships will age you, take your health, and make your whole world go dark. When you are in a negative relationship the other person is siphoning your life force away… leaving you with nothing! Pretty soon you will be hungry, without the strength to find sustenance.

Feed your energy! Don’t deplete your energy.

You want to be picky about who you attach yourself to. You want to be picky about the thoughts you choose to think. You want to be picky about the story you tell yourself. You want to be picky about the fears you entertain.

You’ve been given a certain amount of energetic currency. Use it wisely. It’s like mom and dad gave you your weekly allowance… you don’t want to spend it all in one place! Be conscious of what you invest in, be conscious of what you are manifesting.

If you are feeling stuck ask yourself why. Are you investing in something depleting? Do you need to unplug from something? Are you being careless with your energy? Are you entertaining worn-out thoughts and ideas?

Why are you starving for energy?

Invest your energetic currency in things that multiply and feed you. 

Sit down today and look at what you’ve invested in. Before you can make your dreams happen you have to unplug from all the dead ends and dead beats…then plug into the good stuff!

Practice spiritual cleansing to release these negative energies. Be conscious of your thinking.

Figure out what story is playing in your head, heart and spirit.

Spiritually cleanse yourself, and nourish your spirit by consulting a Reiki practitioner. Have a reading to pinpoint the blocked areas. Keep a running journal of your life to look back on! It’s all about being aware of yourself.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Got White Light? Staying “Psychically” Safe

Lately I’ve been thinking about psychic protection and how important it is. I am constantly around new people, rushing on and off buses and down hectic streets and I constantly feel the invasive and alien presence of other people’s energies trying to intermingle with my own. I always place protection around myself, but its in those moments especially I silently surround myself with a good solid shield.

During session I often talk with people about their energy levels. Many people complain about feeling drained at work or around a certain individual. Some people struggle with sleeping at night or being in certain areas of their house even. And I often find it is because of a lack of protection. It’s extremely important to be protected energetically.

The importance of surrounding yourself with energetic protection is the utmost! Our energy is like a glowing, swirling mass of beautiful golden light. It is magnetic, brilliant and sparkling. To quote Gollum, it is, “The precious!” Your energetic field, some may call it your aura, your life force, it is the conglomeration of everything that you are and if you aren’t protecting it you are allowing any and everyone/ thing to have access to it.

What I like to do, which is very simple, is to visualize a white light like a waterfall falling from the sky, flowing around me, forming a glowing shield of bright, white, fiery light around me. I instill in this image the intention that no harm can cross this shield. I also like to visualize mirrored sphere surrounding that white light, reflecting outward. And I put the intention that all negative and harmful energies be deflected from me.

I often call on protection when I feel really in need. No matter what your spiritual or religious background is you may call on Spirit to guide and protect you. You can even call on a specific energy by name. Such as an angel, deity, master or saint. I like to call on Archangel Michael because his energy is intense, vibrant, loving and extremely powerful. I know if he is around nothing is coming my way. I have a personal connection to him and it makes me feel even safer to call on him and his band of helpers.

I see Michael as this tall, beautiful, dark headed man… with a chiseled jaw and sturdy figure. His eyes burn with devotion and authority and his gestures are gentle and graceful. He carries with him a fiery sword that wards off and cuts through all negativity and harm. I ask him to stand near me surrounding me in protection and I always know he is there. Please explore… pull from what feels right to you. If you feel an affinity with a particular entity then ask them to protect you.

You can also recite a prayer or chant. Even wear a few protective talismans or stones. Use whatever invokes a sense of protection and security around you. Be mindful that whenever you are in crowded places especially you are more vulnerable to others latching onto your energy. So you may wish to have a ritual of sorts to do often or on the spot if needed.

If you aren’t psychically protected what you can experience is a feeling of being drained, angry, anxious, depressed, physically sick and spaced out. Basically it is the affect of either people pulling at your energy and draining it, or you taking on the energy of other people; you either become victim to a psychic vampire (someone who sucks away your essence) or you pick up empathetic impressions (you take on the emotions/ mental state of someone else). White light helps to avoid this.

Even if you think this sounds too esoteric or too mystical magical… try it. See what happens if you just take a few minutes to visualize white light around you. Try it before taking the bus to work, or before going into a stressful meeting or entering a busy coffee shop. See how you feel afterwards. I promise it will help.

I hope these techniques offer something for your spiritual practice! Please, let me know if you have any other questions.
