What Intrigues You?
Algiz - Nordic Rune of Protection
This is actually a very complex question with a multitude of answers. To best explain, I am going to touch on different types of attacks, as well as various ways to protect yourself.
When I researched this topic online, the main thing I could find were Christian based solutions that involve prayer and going to church, and then how magically God will protect you. While I do agree that in a sense this does work, and going to church is a high vibrational experience because of the community of people that create a space for spirit. However, I still feel that these resources are not so useful for those who on a more spiritual path, than a religious one.
This blog post is for intuitives, as more of a reminder of why you need to protect yourself – especially right now, as there is so much fear and anger based influences sent out by the media which are fueled by World events. Collectively, the vibrational frequency is very low, which opens us up to lower vibrational and parasitical attacks.
When you work with spirit you are open to the other realms, or dimensions, and you are also open many things such as parasitical attachments, or attacks set out by other intuitives whom hold a lot of power within their intent. Protecting yourself is vital, and being aware of the dangers within the work you do, is as well.
The things I include within this blog are from my own personal experiences, as well as what I have channeled from my guides, and from readings I’ve done with clients.
Are You a Bad Witch? Or a Good Witch?
Those who are familiar with manifestation, or the power of intent, know of the energetic influence our thoughts can create. We can attract things onto our path, and we can heal others through the power of prayer. Well, you also have to consider that while you can wish someone health, or miracles to appear onto their path as well as wishing angels to help guide them – you can also influence negative things to come their way, as well as send lower vibrational entities, such as demons, or parasitical attachments as mentioned above.
Of course, what you wish onto others, will come back to you, times 3. You wish someone blessings, then you open yourself up to that frequency because you channel it through you, onto them. It’s the same with lower vibrational things.
Everything comes with a price. You want to heal, then you have to walk the path of a healer and learn how to hone your craft. You want to do harm, then you open yourself up to that as well. Those who do curses, typically call upon a demonic force to do their bidding. The power might seem exciting at first, but these beings are not controllable, and once the protective shield drops, the entity will turn the power around and claim their price. And no, they don’t want your soul. They want your vessel, to lower the frequency of others and then eventually to self-destruct. These attachments usually stem from the 3rd eye, so to use this intuitive’s psychic power as a source of fuel, and to also do its chaotic work.
If you are drawn to the dark side – I do feel that it’s good to understand what is out there, but you must keep in mind that you open yourself up to this stuff too, and need to protect yourself. Don’t fall into the temptation of the illusion of power or control. Real magic comes from understanding the cosmic order of things, and aligning to your higher path. When you follow the light, the Universe will provide what truly brings your heart joy.
Often, many intuitives don’t even know that they are sending something lower vibrational someone’s way. If they look upon someone in a negative way, they open a doorway, and if the other person has any weaknesses, or doesn’t have a strong protective shield, then those will be triggered and often things like bad luck, or a set of (usually 3) negative experiences will happen.
Psychic Cords, Energetic Vampires, & Invasion of Creative or Spiritual Space
Be Inspired, Not a Copy
Those who are very sensitive to energy can feel it when someone is all up in there energetic or creative space. I get that people are inspired by others, and want to learn from them, but when you steal their work or mimic the things they do, then you create a psychic link, or cord, which in a sense fuels you with their essence. This is energetic vampirism.
We all have our own journey to walk, and lessons to learn. It is only natural to see someone who is successful in the same line of passion, or aspirations as you, and to learn from what they do, and how they go to the level they are. However, you need to consider the work they did to get to that point, and know that it was sometimes not very easy, or had taken them years of dedication and hard work. We all peak at our own time, and there is no rush to find a end-result in your work, when you have the awareness to know it's really in the journey where the true rewards are.
Those who are not authentic in their truth, and try to imitate others will go through cycles of lessons on the importance of finding their truth, and living it.
Those who can feel the cords that others create through this type of 'subconscious' attack, will feel a block within their own creative truth, as well as start to take in aspects of the person, such as their jealous or envious imprints.
Hauntings, Attachments, & Entities
There are so many things out there, good and bad, and many that we still do not even understand.
Attachments are real, and so is possession. Many cultures around the World, welcome their ancestor spirits to channel through them during healing or ceremonial rituals. In the Work that I do, channeling the other side for my clients, I also allow space in my being for spirit. There are helpful, and there are rather negative spirits. The better your shield, the safer you are.
Just as the Earth has an o-zone layer, we have an aura, which serves as a protective shield, and it is strongest when we are at our highest vibration. When you experience trauma, your aura becomes torn open. In physical injuries it is in that area, if emotional or mental, within that chakra which governs those aspects of thought and feeling. When this tare happens, our light, or vital force begins to leak. Depending on your environment, or your own vibrational frequency, things such as entities or spirits that are within that dimensional frequency will be drawn to your light. Typically, these are not good things, as they feed off the wound, and much like an untreated wound becoming infected, these things will latch on even deeper until they are able to take total control. They thrive off the negative effects, such as depression or anything that brings you down, and grow stronger the more fuel you give it.
Yes, a person can be haunted, as a piece of property can. If there is a negative spirit, or entity on the property then it will induce fear and shift the vibration in the home to cause fighting or issues that will in turn shift the frequency of the people who live there too, so to find a way in, as its main goal is to attach and feed off the life force of the most psychic/energy sensitive.
The prime source of fuel for the most malevolent spirits, or demonic entities, are psychics. This is because they have the most power and brightest lights to feed off of. There are many in the spiritual community whom carry these attachments because they do not do the self-work, or cleanse properly, and so they can actually infect the clients they work on. I have actually heard from others who have had work done, and felt that they had an attachment. This also goes for reading for clients whom are going through something deeply supernatural, and not taking the proper precautions in cleansing and cutting cords after the reading, or spiritual work.
When experiencing these types of attacks, it is best not to feed it anger, or drive it out with aggression. It is especially important not to feed it any fear. You have to keep in mind that these things feed off negative thoughts and feelings. Only light can drive out darkness.
Are There Good Spirits?
Yes, there are protective spirits that serve as guides and guardians to your higher path. There are even times these spirits will cause haunting like symptoms in a home, so to let their presence known. The key is understanding the vibes you feel when experiencing these things. It’s easy to be scared when an object goes missing, and then suddenly reappears, or you see apparitions of the spirit.
For example, when there is something negative there is a heaviness in the air, or you feel a tightness in your spine. These things also appear through dark mists, or shadowy figures, and can leave smells that aren’t very pleasant.
A good spirit, or one that might not have been able to cross over, will usually move objects it was connected to, or reveal its human form. Typically, I can see these within my 3rd eye. I had lived in a house in Salt Lake City, Utah which was built back in 1904, and had a spirit of a 6-year-old boy who had died from an illness. I had first noticed he was there when my daughter’s toys would randomly go off, or books would fall off the shelf. He was curious, the vibe that I got was he was excited to see other children, and had toys to play with. I would be washing the dishes and look out the window to the backyard and see him running in the fields. He always wore the same knee-high socks, shorts, suspenders, and had blonde hair in a bowl-cut shape.
I didn’t tell anyone about him, because I knew he was harmless and respected his space. He knew he was dead, as I had told him to pass on, but he had claimed he wasn’t ready and had a purpose to serve within this realm, still.
One night while out at dinner, my babysitter had called me, and you could tell she was scared from the sound of her voice. She said she had heard a noise come from my daughter’s room and went in there to check on her, and saw a childlike shape peeking in the closet, hiding from her. She told my daughter to go back to bed. She saw the child, which she explained looked exactly like the 6-year-old boy playing out in the backyard, and she looked over at my daughter’s bed to see her sleeping, and realized she may have seen a ghost. I came home, and pretty much told her that he’s harmless, and so not to worry about him. To be honest, I had actually felt validated that I wasn’t crazy.
Many years down the road, I now understand these energies more as I have educated myself and made sense of these experiences, as well as what I channel from my own guides, or ancestral spirits.
There are times when a protective spirit will come to defend you from negative ones. A guardian will come from your ancestral line, so to open you to the spirit realm in order to trigger you to find protection, or to seek a cleansing.
Portals & Dimensions
Many psychics have portals above their crown, which gives them access to the spirit realm, or other dimensions. The frequency this medium is on, determines the frequency of things they bring through. This is how they are able to channel energies and their messages.
Ouija boards, sorry not sorry, open portals that give anything access – especially if you have no idea what you are doing. Seeing these things at Toys R Us for those 8+ really alarmed me… They say these things come with a prayer for protection and closing – however – again with the power of intent, most are focused more onto being scared, or something coming through for the shock value. Fear is a lower vibrational thought, and emotion, which opens you up to that level of dimension, or portal. If you want to communicate with ghosts, then go to a medium who is intune to those energies. Many times, this is how negative portals are opened.
Also, when negative events occur on certain properties then that imprint of energy can attract lower vibrational entities which can also open portals for other spirits on that same frequency to come through.
