Psychic shielding is very important. Sometimes we “pick up” energy from other people, without knowing we are doing so. Their moods or emotions may “bleed over” onto us, leaving us feeling angry, sad, tired, depressed, or whatever they are feeling -and not knowing where this emotion came from.
Also, sometimes people will deliberately send negative energy to us -even though that is a very bad thing which one should never do. Such negative energies cannot harm you, as long as you don’t let them in -but in daily life this is an unconscious process. To one skilled in magic and psychism however, this process under ones direct conscious control. With psychic shielding we set the boundaries which keep out unwanted energy from others, but simultaneously strengthen our own Aura, or energy, keeping it healthy.
Below is the white light shield technique. Personally, it’s the nicest ‘feeling’ shields I’ve ever created. But you can also create other shields for different circumstances. For instance, when I am scared, I create a fire shield – literally a ball of fire; or when I am in the need of cleansing, I would sometimes use a water swirl (it looks like a water tornado) while meditating. Sounds also help when you’re shielding, so my water shield sounds like water swirling around me.
White Light Shield Technique
This exercise should be done daily, either when you go to bed or when get up, or as part of your daily psychic exercises.
Put yourself into a comfortable position and begin by releasing all tension and anxiety.
Visualize a ball of white light floating above you. Focus on the energy of the ball -know that it is full of love and strength and peace. Try hard to FEEL these qualities in the energy of the ball.
Now let the energy from the ball of light begin to flow down into you. The energy is a beautiful, clear white light. No matter how much light comes into you, the ball will remain equally strong for its true origin is the Goddess and it is a source of boundless spiritual energy.
Let the energy from the ball pour into you and flow throughout your body. Let it move out into your arms and legs, down into your fingers and toes.
Now let that light expand beyond your body. At first see the light expand just an inch out from your body. Now let it expand a little more -two inches, four inches… Let the light expand to form an oval around your whole body –an oval filled with clear, beautiful, loving white light from Goddess.
Now let that oval of white light expand to form a perfect circle of energy around you, expanding until it is about six feet across.
Now, in your mind affirm this:
“There is one power in the Universe, and I am a perfect manifestation of that power. As such I will that the boundaries of my aura shall be strong and healthy, repelling all unwanted energy while remaining open to positive and healing energy. Safe within these boundaries nothing can harm me, for I am filled with the strength of the Goddess. By my will, so mote it be -and it is so.”
Now let the visual image of the light dissipate, but know that its protection and strength remain with you.
Now clear and release all excess energy.
