Before reading this section it is important you have an understanding of our energy field or auras. Please read ‘Auras are Energy Fields’ as it will make it easier to understand how other people and their energy can affect us.
Protection of our Aura and Energy.
So depending on the time spent with and the people around you, the different auras of others will build up in us in a positive or a negative way. When you understand the basic concepts of auras and energy exchange, it should become quite apparent why we need to protect ourselves from negative or bad energy that comes from either intended or unintended sources. I suggest you try and use several methods to protect your own valuable energy.
The Physical Block or Protection.
For those that have studied body language, this should be familiar. When you’re in a room with people or standing in front of a person that you want to protect yourself from, try crossing your arms and legs if possible and try not to face directly towards them. Stand or sit pointing away from them. Most shy people will practice this ability without realising it. Really they are saying, stay away from me I don’t want to interact with you. Whether or not you realise, we all use body language to close off or open up to others depending on your situation. You would not use the closed off position if you were going for a job interview. You would probably practice the opposite if you wanted the job and be open in mannerism and body language. When I read for people, they are opposite and facing me, this opens them up so I can help them. People who cross or hold their arms are hard to read. They are automatically blocking their energy from me and others.
The Spiritual Blocks or Protection.
All people using their intuitive abilities (which is everyone,whether they understand it or not), should practice psychic protection. At a basic level it will stop other people stealing your energy (unless we want them too). Psychics, nurses, medical staff, healers, counsellors, salesman and anyone in large offices such as corporate or government should learn this valuable art. Stress, feeling unwell, worn out and being run down are all signs of people robbing your energy or being around sick or needy people. Also being in or around dysfunctional relationships, sick or depressed people or anyone dealing with a lot of people should learn energy protection, so they don’t get run down. We humans seem to want to control everything to the ninth degree, so it only natural that if you are feeling down and someone else around you is happy, why not get some of their energy and put a smile on our face! It’s an automatic response in most people.
Psychic Protective Practices for your Aura.
One of the biggest problems when you open your psychic ability is the increase of your sensitivity to any energies around you. This can be difficult to deal with initially. Things such as headaches, feeling sick, exhausted or a lack of energy are a sure sign of someone or something robbing your energy. Protection should be the up most in your mind and done regularly.
The Mirror Armour.
I believe this to be one of the most efficient ways to protect yourself. To be used every morning, before work, at lunch and before going out at night, in other words anytime you are meeting other people. Over time when practiced regularly it only takes a few seconds to protect yourself.“Rest in your mind’s eye and establish a regular meditative breath, calm and centre yourself. Now after maintaining a quiet moment and space in your mind, visualize in your mind a light breathable mirrored suit of Armour reflecting all energy and light away from you. Make sure its goes all round and under you, leave no place where energy can get through. Every time someone comes to drain or change your energy see their attempts bouncing of your suit of Armour and head back to them with loving thoughts and actions. Picture arrows of negative energy hitting your mirrored suit and heading back to the owner converted as love. Just mentally rebound their arrows back with love to make their day and yours a lot better.”
The Condom or Bubble Field.
Very similar to the mirror Armour but as you mediate imagine one or the other completely surrounding you as protection. Picture the negative energy bouncing off your shield converting to love on the way back. Doing this regularly will keep your protection up against all the energy robbers.
Incense and Sage Protection.
Burning good quality incense and sage is a great way to chase away negative or bad energy in your aura or surrounds. White Sage has been used for century’s by the Native American Indians for protection. The clearing of houses and areas of unwanted spirit activity and energy will often make use of burning sage. The sage burnt around your aura and your home and work place regularly (if allowed), will clear any unwanted dark energy. Sometimes this might take several attempts, but if practiced regularly, will help clear you, your home and work area. There are several types of sage, use the one the best suits you. In an enclosed room the fumes can be too much for some people at first, so initially burn it for a short time and then build up to longer times. Incense is also a great way to make your environment smell nice and refreshing and be protective at the same time. Incense is available in many varieties and forms for all different applications. Rose essence mixed with water is a great also at getting rid of unwanted energy’s, just by spraying it in the air will help clear the area and allow the area to smell nice as well.
How to Clear your Aura with Sage.
Best done with another person helping, but can be done by yourself. Starting from the feet work your way up the body, making sure you go through the legs. Around the body, and on top. This exercise is effective if practiced regularly say once a week or fortnight or whenever you feel you need it.
Vibration and Flower Essences.
Certain flowers and essences can open up and protect our auras. Lavender mixed with water is a great comforter and has a calming effect on most people. Be watchful and ask if others are allergic to certain essences before using.
Strengthening of the Auric Field.
There are many ways to reinvigorate your aura after it has suffered damage. Just in day to day activity’s around people or in stressful situations our aura can suffer. Having a relaxing holiday away from work, especially in nature is one way a lot of us should do more often. Sitting in the sun outside are little ways to help yourself. Spiritual healers and psychics use many of these techniques to help themselves and others, again use the ones that work for you. So don’t be afraid of experimenting till you find the one that suits you the best.
Shower after Work.
Often after stressful days at work we can come home, frazzled and dazed. One of the simplest and best ways to remove a lot of negative or bad energy is to have a good old fashion shower. A salt bath is better, especially if you can lay and let the water take away the rubbish or dross that has stuck to you during the day. The hair especially is a trap for unwanted energy, so makes sure it gets a good wash. A lot of women for example don’t like washing their hair at night and so they sleep with all with all of the day’s rubbish from others in their bed. This can be another reason why people find it hard to sleep and are restless in bed. You wouldn’t take your dirty smelly bin to bed, would you? And you certainly would not be to sleep well with the smell of rotten rubbish around you so I suggest you shower and change clothes as soon as you get home.
Crystal Recharging and Stabilizing of your Aura.
Crystals have the ability to absorb and amplify different frequency or energies. Holding double terminated crystals while resting or mediating will increase your aura field. The pointed end will draw good energy into our aura and balance us. Crystals work on different frequency’s to help restore our energy auras. Different crystals work with different parts of us to heal and recharge and balance those areas. The easiest way to start out is to relate them the colours of your chakras. Blue crystal with the blue throat chakra. Clear quartz can be used just about anywhere and is a very common crystal. Quartz is silicone and has been used in the early days to make crystal radios as the crystal absorbs and amplifies the radio signal. Silicon chip or quartz crystal is the cornerstone of modern computers and this should show you how important they are to the human race.

Spiritual Energy Healing or Reiki.
Using traditional reiki or spiritual healing can realign our energy centres and allow energy to start flowing properly again. Depending on the type, frequency and the healer, will point to how effective this treatment will be. A good healer can identify what is needed, where and charge up your tired system. Regular and ongoing healing would ensure the best option for maintaining our auric field at maximum health.

Massage, Gym, Walking, Running and Energy Moving.
Some massage and energy movers can really have a positive effect on our physical bodies, by realigning and strengthening our auras. By moving old stale unwanted energy and spiritually shifting it out of us they can change our moods to make us feel healthier. Gym, Yoga, walking or running in nature are great ways of releasing old tired energy and bringing in fresh new energy into the body.
The Cleansing Vortex.
Over a period of time, reacting with others auras can leave us feeling burnt out and dirty with negative debris clinging to our aura. A simple two minute exercise will greatly help restore and cleanse our aura. Sitting or lying down, gradually slow your breathing and start relaxing your muscles, leg and arms. Mediation music can help you achieve regular slow breathing. Now in your mind’s eye visualise about 5-10 meters above your head, a sucking clean vortex of golden white energy spinning up and out like a personal gentle tornedo. Slowly lower the vortex down to cover all of your aura and body, visualize all the dirty murky bits getting sucked up the vortex like a vacuum cleaner. As the dirty dribs go, imagine fresh new white light and energy filtering down the centre of the vortex. With each moment your aura is being purified and refreshed. When you feel the aura clean gradually come back to ground yourself in the room. This exercise if practiced regularly will greatly help you maintain your vital energy levels.
Auras, Chakras and their Colours.
I will touch briefly on auras and chakras as they are a subject unto themselves. Auras and chakras all link into the body’s energy system. Energy healing and other spiritual modalities use the chakras to realign and balance our bodies, so energy flows smoothly and constantly. When energies get blocked in the body by a major or continuous events, though things as anger, grief, sorrow or negativity the chakras will get stuck. Physical illness and stress and other signs of sickness will always follow sooner or later if left unattended. The seven Chakras have universal recognized colours associated with them. Auras and soul colours are not the same as chakra colours, as we are all unique and at different stages of soul development in spiritual terms. Some people are naturally gifted at seeing the different colours of auras in people. Some of us can either see partial auras or feel them as well but most need eye exercise practice in order to see or sense any. Kirlian photography is another way to electronically see and experience the body’s auras colours. Anyone who has been to a psychic fair will have probably seen the cameras in action. It will primarily focus on the head and shoulder area and show the colours around us. Because everyone is unique, different colours will show up on individuals. Below these primary colours are indicative of our character or personality’s strengths and talents, most of us have a mix of a few colours, just like in life. The colours in the aura field normally have different shades and positions around the body. Colours can be uplifting or downright depressive, attracting or repulsing. Remember our aura field is a sign of our physical and emotional body. There is much to be said about our own thoughts moving us forward or sabotaging us in life.
What Colours Represent.
Red: This colour is all about passion, excitement, sexual energy and strength. Too much or a murky red can indicate an imbalance of temper and aggression.
Orange: Orange is a warm, comforting and creative. Social and joy are positive attributes. Dark orange or murky can represent greed, worry and vanity issues.
Yellow: The mental colour yellow represents our thinking processes. It can indicate wisdom, learning and openness. Dark yellow or murky can represent depression or indicate too much activation of the mind and over analysing things leading to more stress and worry.
Green: The colour of healing, sensitivity, compassion, friendliness and abundance. Dark green or murky can represent miserliness, jealousy, controlling or mistrust.
Blue: The Colour of quiet and calm, devotion, seriousness and truth fall under its banner. Dark blue or murky can represent blocked ideas, excess worrying and over sensitivity.
Purple/Violet: The colour of blending of the physical with the spiritual, humanity, intuition and independence. Dark Purple or murky is about misunderstanding, overbearing and intimidating.
Pink: The colour of purity, compassion and love. A reflection of love and companionship. Murky pink can reflect immaturity or a lack of truthfulness.
Gold: Represents spiritual energy and a strength in one’s power, devotion and true harmony. Dark gold or murky can be a sign of emerging awareness, a work in process so to speak.
White: White has a combination of all the colours. In strength it is truth and purity and awakening of creativity.
Grey: A colour of unveiling hidden abilities. The energies are usually are in the field of illumination, intuition and creative juices. Dark greys can be physical imbalances, especially next to organs or areas in the body.
Brown: New growth and laying of roots. On the negative can indicate need to clean the chakras or energy centres or health issues.
Black: Is a strange colour. On one hand it can represent the person is protecting their aura but is also be an indication that someone is hiding something. Black can also mean that imbalances or holes in the aura. Effects of sexual, mental or other forms of abuse can lead to a ripping of the aura which will leak energy which can be hard to fix. It is a result of the conscience being ripped out of the physical body during the abuse, this is a reason why abused victims can often forget much of the abuse or block the memory of it.
Summary: It has my experience that anyone practicing psychic development and not protecting themselves will sooner or later get hit with bad negative energy. Try different techniques and use the ones that feel right or work for you. A lot of people will use more than one form of protection, so try a few. These are only some of the techniques for protecting your energy. Remember,experiment till you find the one that works for you.
