Brandi Auset and I are offering a new course, Protection Practices – The Art of Psychic Self Defense, which begins on August 1 and includes a live Dark Moon call. I wanted to share some of my thoughts about Psychic Self Defense and why I think this is a
really important fundamental spiritual practice.
When I began studying in my early 20’s with a spiritual teacher, the first thing that I was taught was psychic self defense. How to protect myself whether I was meditating, doing inner journey work, tripping the astral lights fantastic, performing ritual, or just walking into a crowded room. Those teachings have been fundamental to the Priestess, practitioner, and ritualist that I am today and, more than twenty years later, many of those basic techniques are still part of my daily practice.
The relief and empowerment that I felt in learning and implementing protection practices changed my life. As a natural psychic and empath, I had frequent experiences throughout my childhood with spirits, the dead, and extreme sensitivity to certain places. Goddess and my guardians assisted me in finding ways to deflect much of the unwanted energies, but until I met my first teacher and other teachers through continued studies, I did not feel like I was truly in control of my energy and responses.
Goddess, guardians, guides, and allies are vital, in my humble opinion, to psychic defense and also the unfolding of your spiritual path. Seek the connections that engage and uplift you. Align with the Goddesses that empower and support you. And don’t ever be afraid to ask for help from inner and outer guides.
Protection Practices may be a first step for you and/or reinforcement on your spiritual path. The content in this course is what Brandi and I consider to be fundamental, basic, and most important. Not all things work for all people, so take the next steps of continuing to study and experiment and find what works for you. All of us have different elemental make-up, so for some working with water will feel more natural, or perhaps you realize that fire is your go-to element.
Pay attention to what brings you joy and well-being, because that is always a great first line of defense and informs our natural alignments. Initiate good habits for energetic hygiene and you will find that the maxim, “like attracts like”, is not only true but brings more positivity to your life and energy.
I also want to reinforce that bonafide directed psychic attacks are not that common. We may feel like we are “under attack” and that may be true for many reasons, but targeted hexes, curses, and attacks are not always the source. Brandi and I will be covering this topic throughout the course and in the Dark Moon live call. If the feeling of “attack” persists, I absolutely encourage you to find a Priestess or practitioner that can assist in diagnosing and relieving the situation.
Most often, we need defense against the daily invading energies of which we take little or no notice: a co-worker that “sucks the life out of you”; a relationship that is unhealthy or unsafe; depression; illness; general feelings of malaise or fatigue. Many of these situations are indicative of stagnant energy and situations that do not serve us. Think of how you would describe the people, places, and situations that you encounter every single day – do they energize you? support you? inspire you? or do you feel depleted, exhausted, and like a wet rag?
All life is energy and so these situations too are energy. We shift this energy and stagnant situations by clearing, removing, cleansing, AND replacing. How exciting is that?!
As we extend our energies beyond our physical forms, we journey on inner astral worlds and encounter a range of energies and entities. Not all of these energies and entities are friendly or compatible with us. Through this course, we will discuss the other types of invading and nuisance energies, ghosts, hauntings, psychic attacks, and ways to defend, deflect, and protect.
It’s time to call your energies and powers back to you.
To stand in your power and tell the Universe what you want.
This is your line in the sand.
We hope that you can join us on this wonderful adventure of exploring Psychic Self Defense!
