Psychic Attack

How To Defend Yourself Against Psychic Attack
Just mentioning these words makes some people cringe. What is a psychic attack? It is the assault upon your aura, without your conscious permission, by another person, place, thing or group. It will leave you feeling open, exposed, vulnerable and sometimes, a sense of danger and an anxiety or panic attack. I say 'conscious' because on a subconscious base within ourselves, we have fears--those things we haven't worked through or with, and have yet to integrated into ourselves. So long as they remain unintegrated, they expose us and leave us open, aurically speaking, to someone assaulting our aura and draining us of Prana, a life-giving energy.

In my business as a shaman, I've been exposed to just about every kind of psychic attack, whether by an individual or a group. What I share with you here are my experiences. That is not to say I know everything, because I do not. Nor do I know all the different methodologies of protecting one's self, either. What I do know, is contained here in the article.

So, let's get back to this fear thing. All the attacks I've experienced over the years were necessary in order to rid me of the one thing that could get me killed out there in non ordinary reality: FEAR. You can't be a working shaman and be afraid.
At the root of any psychic attack upon any person, it is designed to "hot button" our fear. It could be fear of the unknown. Fear of being controlled by another person. Fear of being hurt. Fear of being killed. There are many fears out there, but the basic, underlying theme to why psychic attack works is because of our fear.

Who is Doing the Psychic Attacking?
Usually, a person doesn't even know they are attacking you. This is the unconscious kind of psychic attack. And then, there's those who do it on purpose and consciously. In either situation, you can confront them and tell them that they are draining you of energy and to stop it at once.
Often, in dysfunctional family dynamics, we see prana-guzzling from a parent to a child or vice-versa. This is where pieces get taken from everyone involved in this psychic dance of unhealthy patterns.
It can be a co-worker where you have your job. Or your boss. It could be the type of job you're in, such as a nurse in a hospital, a police person, a firefighter or any activity where there's high drama linked with life-death situations.
Or, its someone who doesn't like you--and you may or may not know it. Many of us are sensitive to being disliked. I think we'd all like to think we're liked by everyone--but that's not the reality of the world and how it operates. Inevitably, we all make enemies by simply being alive and breathing. It's not that we have to do something terribly wrong to earn them, either. Some of us, more than others, accrue more enemies. And not everyone is going to be overjoyed over our decision making process, either. Just by standing your ground and staying in your own, personal balance, can make people angry at you. You can be attacked just because you're breathing. The key here is: don't take it personally.

Cop an attitude that you know not everyone is going to agree with you. If you can shift yourself into detaching (Zen-like) emotionally from those who don't like you (and never will), then you are stopping the giving or frittering away your energy to them. You can literally, bleed yourself dry over an issue, person, circumstance--and you're hemorrhaging yourself! They aren't doing it for you--you are shooting yourself, quite literally, into your own foot! Most of us do this--usually when we're younger and less often as we mature. And over time and years, we "get it" and stop it and rise above these situations so we don't take a pound of our own flesh.
It's easy to say: well, get rid of your fear and you can't be attacked. Most of us spend a lifetime working through our fears and releasing them. And even if we do--we can still get attacked! You can lower your fear barrier or even expunge it from yourself forever, but that doesn't mean you won't or can't be attacked by a person or group.
And when or if this happens, it won't knock you over--unless it's a group after you, and then, you're probably going to have to call in some help. But more on that later.

Warning Signs of Psychic Attack
Tiredness. Fatigue. Because an individual or group is putting an invisible "gasoline hose" into your aura and pumping out your pranic energy, you are going to have less available to you than before. Without prana, there is no energy available.
If you suddenly become very tired, even weak feeling when you're with a particular person, in a particular room or place, this is a sign that you're being drained of pranic energy from your aura.
Tiredness or a feeling of absolute weakness or fatigue that occurs at a certain time of the day, almost like clockwork.
I know people who routinely have a schedule for tapping into other person's aura at a specific time of the day or night. Generally speaking, we all get a little lackluster between 2pm and 4pm every day--this is known in biology as the "post prandial dip" and it is a metabolism phenomena associated with all human beings. We all do this, every day, almost without exception. This is NOT psychic attack.
If your cyclic or periodical tiredness suddenly avalanches you at any other time other than the above, then a psychic attack may be occurring.

Headache. After being with a person, in a stressful situation, or place, and you suddenly develop a headache out of it, this can be draining of your energy taking place. And interestingly enough, when you get away from this person, your headache goes away!

Drained feeling. You can spend five minutes with this predator and walk away on weak knees and feel as if you are going to have to crawl to your car or home. You can barely walk upright. When this happens, it usually takes a couple of hours or a good night's sleep, to recover from it.
Nightmares. If you usually don't have nightmares and suddenly, you begin to have some of whatever you fear chasing you and trying to kill you, this could be an attack. But you need to be sure about this, because there could be another reason for it occurring. From time to time, our subconscious wants to get our attention about our Shadow material that we're not integrating into ourselves and it is emotions that remain in a suppression/repression or denial form, and it will start sending us "shadow" dreams.

Shadow dreams are always chase dreams where you're being chased and attack by either a known or unknown entity. The one thing you know in this dream is that if you let him/it/her catch you, you're dead. So, in these dreams, you are constantly dodging, ducking, running and hiding. You need to ask yourself what is presently going on in your life that you're not facing.
You need to assess which of these two things are going on in your life. Most nightmares are NOT about psychic attack.

Icy cold feeling physically on some part, or all of your body. When your aura is being drained, you can physically feel like you're freezing.

A clenched knot feeling in your stomach/solar plexus area. If you walk into someplace and your solar plexus snaps shut when a particular person approaches you; beware. You are being given warning that this person is dangerous to you. Our solar plexus is the seat of our fears/anxieties/repression and suppression. It is where our Shadow contents reside. When you get this gut-clench feeling, play head's up football, pay attention and stay alert. If you feel suddenly weak or shaky, get away from this person or activity.

Anxiety and Panic Attacks. Many times, we get drained and siphoned from and don't even realize it until much later. The reaction then becomes an anxiety reaction or sometimes, a full blown panic attack because on a subconscious level, you are reacting to the assault like any normal person would. If you have such a symptom, then think back several hours or 1-2 days before and carefully go over who you met, where you were at and try to pinpoint the possible psychic attack.

Depression. Long term psychic attacks by an individual or group that does this cyclically for weeks or months on end, can end up making you feel morose, sad, hopeless, listless and like life isn't worth living at all. This is a serious attack and will need serious help in the form of a shaman to catalyze the break-up of energy and disconnecting the lines from your aura. Afterward, your "old jaunty self" will return.

Suicidal. Long term psychic attack can literally drain a person of so much pranic energy that all they thinking or know is that they are dying--because they are dying a little each day. It's no wonder the person becomes suicidal or has thoughts of leaving--because they are dying an inch at a time through the machinations of another or others. When a lot of your pranic energy is sucked out of you continually, death can occur. That, or your health is wrecked.

Shaking and trembling. This reaction usually occurs during or after an attack. The person may or may not realize why s/he's suddenly shaking. From a subconscious level, where the assault is realized, this is a perfectly normal reaction because, whether you knew it or not, your adrenaline is flowing high and fast--the "fight or flight" hormones. A part of you wants to run. Usually, in this type of situation, you don't connect consciously with what is really going on subliminally between you and the psychic assaulter--until later.

Pessimism. If you are normally an optimistic or idealistic person and your thoughts suddenly turn rancidly pessimistic, hopeless, angry, irritated, impatient, then you need to understand that this isn't the 'real' you, but you are reacting to something that you may not consciously realize that is going on. During long term attacks, a person can literally, change personality from an sunny, extrovert person to a moody, morose, depressed, negative individual--but it happens over a number of weeks or months and they really don't see it happening. It is usually brought to their attention by the spouse or family members.

Loss of Confidence. If you were once a fairly confident individual, but over weeks or months of time, it is eroded way from you until you feel like a scared, vulnerable little rabbit out there in the Big, Bad World, then someone may, indeed, be chipping away at you--psychically.

Victim Mentality. A person gets into this state when they were never in one....but over a period of weeks or months during a long-term psychic attack--they begin to feel hopeless and helpless. They can literally "freeze", like a deer in headlights, and cannot help themselves out of this inner immobility. Many times, this person must 'hit bottom' on this and what will save them is themselves when they get angry enough to fight back. The anger, used in a positive sense here, snaps and breaks the lines between yourself and the psychic attacker.

Health problems. A specific organ of the body is chosen and energy is sent in, like a sledge hammer, to shut it (and the chakra) down once and for all. Usually, if the person or group mean business (to kill you), they target your heart to create a heart attack. If it doesn't work, and you're getting protection, it may end up as lung congestion, bronchitis, or pneumonia. It can also be any organ in the body. If it was working fine and you suddenly get assaultive pain with it, on and off, for "no reason", then you need to see your doctor. If the doc gives you a bill of good health, then think about being under psychic attack.

Other Considerations
It has been mine, and many other shaman's experiences that when a person comes to us and tells us they've been under attack for years or decades, that what we're really dealing with is a person who is potentially schizophrenic or who has suffered a chronic psychotic break from reality. They are right: they are under attack. Usually by the "garbage levels" of the astral plane. What they see and hear is real. If this individual does not get psychotherapy, SR/E and homeopathic treatment, they probably will never resolve this issue this lifetime. At least, that is my observation and experience.
These people, bless them, have spent a lot of money and time on many different healers, psychics and shamans trying to get help--but in the end, it all fails. No one can help them--at least, not on the clairvoyant end of the stick. This requires some hard reality work coupled with energy medicine. And even then, it may not be enough. My experience is that these individuals are taking on such a lifetime to learn something from it and its not to be changed or altered from what it is.

Addressing Our Fear: The First Step In Freeing Ourselves From Psychic Attack
All of us, myself included, have fears. There isn't any among us who don't. The only question is: Is the fear running you/your life, or not? If it is, then you are open to psychic attack. You need to list your fears. Don't be shy about this. Look at what you fear. And ask yourself why do you fear it? Many times, our fears are based upon our childhood, or a particular experience, or a parent who had a lot of fears that they passed onto us.
Fear leaves us open to be plucked like a ripe watermelon by those individuals who just delight in sucking us dry of our prana, our right to live and to exist. We have no one to blame but ourselves. After all, it is OUR fear--not there's--that leaves us open and feeling vulnerable. They're just being opportunists, is all.
Fear can be dealt with many ways. Here's a short list of possible "tools" that you can pick up and use that will be life-altering. These are modalities that deal with the chronic situation:

Psychotherapy. A good therapist is worth their weight in gold. If you have the money, this is a good avenue to explore because most of our fears are childhood-based.
Constitutional homeopathic treatment. I have seen people frozen by irrational fears completely lose them when the correct remedy was given to them. A homeopathic remedy can break off and stop a psychic attack by a person or group.
Soul Recovery and Extraction. If you have lost pieces of yourself, then there are "holes" in your aura as a result. These holes like to be filled with astral garbage that does nothing but make our life hell, fill our dreams with terror, and make us feel anxious or panicked. A facilitator can bring back those pieces and you can integrate them. When these 'holes' are filled, you will no longer be open or vulnerable to attacks.
Other Tools for Acute Situations

None of us go into work, travel or meet people with the expectation that they are going to psychically attack us. But it happens all the time. Sometimes, your job is of a environment that breeds negativity and stress. Or there's a particular person you work with that this occurs with. Or, you've got relationship problems and one partner is the psychic attacker (whether s/he knows it or not--and usually, they don't). Or, you're at a convention and you must sit with a person who is literally sucking you dry. The scenarios are endless; but I think you understand that a psychic attack can happen to any of us, any where. So, we must be aware and be prepared. Here are some "acute" tools that I have used in the past, and sometimes, even use now, when I find myself in just such a pickle:

Saranwrap. I know, most people take a second look at this, but I mean it. Whenever I go on the road and have to give seminars or talks, I always pack my trusty Saranwrap! It is three sheets or layers, one on top of the other. I tuck it beneath my bra so that it hangs over and covers my solar plexus (the area just below where your breastbone or sternum ends to your tummy button).
If I get into a seminar where I feel instant draining, and I don't have time to do anything about it because my attention is too scattered and pulled and I can't focus like I need to, then I excuse myself and go slap on my Saranwrap and there's a happy ending. The only bad thing about this is: you'll sweat like a pig beneath it. Bummer.

Ask your Spirit Guide for protection. I know this sounds so simple and logical. And it is. But you know what? How many of us forget to ask? I do this all the time. And then I could kick myself. When I do remember it, I simply ask my spirit guides to "let there be a positive and reciprocal energy between me and everyone."

Black Tourmaline taped to your solar plexus. Yup, this works wonders. Seen it in action many times and I've used it myself upon occasion. Black Tourmaline is one of the top gemstones for protection against psychic attack. By taping it right on your stomach region with a piece of tape, it will send the energy right back at the sender and leave you alone. This stops fear/anxiety/panic instantly. It works wonders. I have had people, who have been psychically attacked in the dream state put a couple of Black Tourmaline in their pillow case where they lay their head while the sleep--and no more nightmares or bad dreams.

You can also do this a little less obviously and wear black tourmaline on your LEFT side. The left is where the assault comes into your aura.
Jasper, Agate and Turquoise. These are three other gemstones that are used continually by Native Americans during ceremonies to protect themselves. When we work in ceremony, we're wide open, so to speak. We may wear a necklace of one of these stones, or place one of them into our LEFT pocket.

Visualizing white or gold light around you. If you have time, focus and intensity of thought, you can close your eyes and see this ball of white/gold light hovering over your head and then spilling down in an egg shape all around you. Make SURE you visualize the color coming beneath your feet and sealing up. If you make the mistake of not including the soles of your feet, you're still wide open for attack.

Prayer. This is very simple, but very effective. Ask for help from those that you believe in. In asking, you are changing the dynamic. And pray with focus and intent.

Flower and gem essences. Some are very protective. If you are having nightmares, then Crested Prickle Poppy is what you want to consider. If you are in a highly stressful environment, then consider Black Tourmaline. By ingesting it, it is just like taping on a small pieces of the stone to your solar plexus/stomach region!

Yoga exercises. Correct breathing and the postures assumed in yoga actually stimulate and clean out your chakras. By simply doing this, you are ahead of the game. If your chakras are up and working, that is a powerful protection in the first place.
When You Are Attacked by a Group

I've had this done to me more times than I care to remember. And at those times, I asked for help--not only from my spirit guides, but I dug into my own nest of fears and began to work on my own dirt. I also asked for help from my friends, other shamanic facilitators, whom I trusted and knew could protect me.

Group assaults are usually about power struggles; one party envies, is jealous of, power over you, or wants to get even with, another party. Most people will not have to experience this, but if you're a shaman or working heavily in the metaphysical areas, then its more likely to occur. The key is to know what to do about it and once you realize what is happening, call in the troops from both sides of the tracks!

The key to what I've learned from all these dumb, stupid attacks by others is that I must force myself to rise above and move into a state of complete, pure compassion toward them. When I do this sincerely, and on an emotional level and send pure love to them, they can't stand it and they stop the attack. They've certainly been great teachers. But I didn't do this alone: I had help from the Other Side from my spirit guides, and from friends and family on this side, too. It was a team effort. When you get in trouble: you ask--a lot.

Love is the greatest healer and your greatest protector against psychic attack. A love of yourself, first. You must love yourself, warts and all. No one's perfect; none of us ever will be in this human body. Learning to accept yourself for what you are and are not is the first, big step in this process. Eventually, with time, trials and experience, you will understand the term, "active compassion" and be able to apply it to others and groups. It gives you the emotiona detachment necessary. I have found that loving one's enemy is the finest choice one can make. They might send you destructive energy, but when it meets the energy of love; it completely dissipates it. Hate cannot destroy love; just the opposite.
Then, identifying your fears and understanding them in the context of you much more than you did before, is another step of progress on this ladder of selfhood.

What Next?
I'm sure I've left something out, or something unsaid. This article is "food-for-thought" to catalyze you into looking at yourself more and perhaps, doing something about it. We can't blame others. We can only look at ourselves, our weaknesses, our blocks of fear, and use the experience to try and gain insight into ourselves and hopefully, begin healing it and ourselves.
Those who know of other protective "tools" please post and share with us.

What is a Psychic Attack? - By Rebecca Bennett
When people think of the word "psychic," they often think of mystical ceremonies being performed, usually involving reading the future, crystal balls, tarot cards, and so on. While this may be the part of the psychic world that is emphasized in Hollywood, it certainly doesn't end there. So what does the word "psychic" actually mean, and what is a psychic attack?

Meaning of the Term 'Psychic'
"Psychic" is a word that describes the parts of our human experience that science can neither document nor explain. All of us have energies and auras, which are integral to psychic power. Psychic power is simply recognizing and reading another person's aura or the overall energy (or mood) of a place or situation.

What is a Psychic Attack?
Psychic attacks are when a person's aura is compromised by negative energy. Sometimes the harmful energies are intentionally directed at the person by another ill will, but more often people leave themselves open or vulnerable to negative energies and ones all around us just seep in uninvited.

Symptoms of Psychic Attack
That is not to say that a attack is responsible for every bad thing that happens to us - sometimes we are just unfortunate, sometimes we need to learn an important lesson, and sometimes a hardship in our lives now is necessary for the growth of another person. But some symptoms of a such attacks may include:

1. Trouble sleeping
2. Loss or increase in appetite
3. Fatigue
4. Sudden health problems
5. Relationship trouble
6. Difficulty concentrating
7. Recurring bad dreams
8. Undefined or undirected fear or anxiety
9. Hearing voices

Upon experiencing some of the above symptoms, the first thing a person should do is have them checked out by a medical doctor and/or a psychiatrist. For example, rule out the possibility of a brain tumor or other neurological problem as the cause for frequent headaches or hearing voices before assuming it is a psychic attack. Other symptoms like changes in eating or sleeping patterns, or oppressive negative feelings, may be the result of clinical depression. Make sure to check those out first. If medical science has no answer for the negative energies you're suffering from, they are probably the result of psychological attack.

Protecting Yourself Against Psychic Attack
The hardest aura to attack psychically is a strong, pure, and whole one. Often, we invite psychic attacks because of holes or weak spots in our positive auras. Anger, self-doubt, and pessimism all weaken our psychic auras and make us more vulnerable to psychic attack. The best way to defend ourselves is to fortify our spirits so that we can remain strong against negative energies around us. Meditate regularly. Spend time connecting with the people and things around you. Concentrate on sending out positive energy. Be productive. Take good care of your health. Concentrate on eliminating bad feelings from your life and getting rid of negative or draining relationships in your life.
Once you have "cleansed" yourself spiritually, you'll be more impervious to psychic attacks.

Psychic Attacks and Protecting Yourself - By Mary Kurus

Psychic Attacks and Dark Negative Energies
Psychic attacks are defined as the manipulation of supernatural energies and forces. Psychic attacks occur when dark and negative energetic vibrations are sent from one individual to another individual or place creating disturbances in the energetic and physical bodies of the person or place. This negative energy can be called a spirit, an entity, a thought form or a dark negative energy. Each of these energies can create harmful effects within the person receiving them.
Not everything that's considered difficult in a persons life is the result of a psychic attack, but psychic attacks do happen and they happen more often today than ever before. You will hear some people say that negative energies and psychic attacks don't exist and cannot happen if you don't believe in them or give them energy by paying attention to them. This is not true. Problems can and do happen as a result of negative energies and psychic attacks. Recently mothers have contacted me about their teenagers who are practicing bits of black magic wanting to know how to help their children. There are disadvantages as well as advantages to Harry Potter.
Mother Earth and all of us who live on her are surrounded by many mysterious, supernatural and beautiful energies, including intelligent energies, angels and guides. We are affected by the energies of all the planets including the Sun, the Moon, other planets, asteroids and stars. At the same time we are also exposed to many negative energies, entities, spirits and intelligent energies which can affect us in so many different ways.

Ancient Societies and Psychic Attacks
Societies from ancient times to the present have worked with psychic attacks and dark negative energies. The African and Haitian people practice voodoo and black magic. North American and European cultures practice black magic and witchcraft. Indian, Chinese and South American tribes have similar practices. Australian Aboriginals practice something called "pointing the bone". Similar practices are recorded from ancient times and continue to be practiced today in all societies. In medieval times they burned people for practicing witchcraft.

Psychic Attacks - What Are They?
Psychic attacks involve the manipulation and movement of different types of dark energies, entities and spirits. They involve the transferring of dark and negative energies into someone's physical and/or energetic bodies. Some of the dark energies and entities that find their way into physical and energetic bodies, and homes are sent without awareness, even though they are sent by humans. Others are sent intentionally to create harm and damage, often to control, manipulate or punish the individual. They can involve ritualistic techniques or ceremonies or use the psychic powers of the mind or a combination of both.

It's difficult for anyone to penetrate an aura that is healthy and strong. Auras are weakened by repressed emotions, negative emotions, through the regular use of drugs and alcohol, through smoking cigarettes and a variety of diseases. The physical presence of fungus, parasites, worms, or metal, chemical or atomic poisons can seriously weaken an aura. It's important to understand that all illness begins in the aura and then eventually moves into the physical body. Therefore the care and protection of your energetic body is as important as the physical body so you can repel psychic attacks and stay strong and healthy.

Intentional Psychic Attacks, Spells, Curses, Voodoo, Witchcraft
The dark and negative energies sent intentionally by others are called psychic attacks and can seriously affect humans and animals at a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Psychic attacks can include spells, voodoo, mantras, invocations, negative energy rays, or other types of black magic. They attack psyches and can produce debilitating effects on the overall health and energy level of the affected person.

Dark Spirits and Entities
There are dark spirits and entities that can move into physical bodies and auras affecting what people think, speak, do, desire, and feel. The human who is invaded by these spirits or entities can take on the physical attributes, illnesses and behavior of the spirit or entity occupying the person to such a degree that there appears to be a complete personality change.

Negative Thought Forms
Another major type of dark negative energy that can be sent to others is through negative thinking, anger, wishing harm to others, jealousy, animosity, seeking revenge, vindictiveness, or other forms of thought that are based in anger, rage and fear. These are called thought forms and they can be lodged in a persons body or various layers of their auras causing a wide range of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual difficulties.

Degrees of Strength of Psychic Attacks
Psychic attacks and other dark negative energies, entities and spirits can have a wide range of effect from low to medium to high. The symptoms or changes in health or behavior can also range from low to medium to high. Not all health problems or behavior changes are caused by psychic attacks since there can be so many causes for the same symptoms. Confusion often exists when other physical and emotional difficulties are present in an individual's life. It's important to carefully assess all possible sources for the difficulties including physical factors, energetic factors and emotional factors.

Can We Draw Dark Energies To Ourselves?
We definitely can draw dark energies, entities and spirits into ourselves without any influence whatsoever from external sources. Prolonged states of anger, rage, resentments, bitterness, vindictiveness, and many types of fears, will draw and attract these negative energies. It's normal to get angry or fearful when things happen in our lives. These occurrences do not draw the dark side in to us. It's the long-term and prolonged states that set up the energetic attraction. Ongoing repressed negative emotions can eventually turn into a certain type of entity.
Violence of all types, physical, emotional and mental is a very powerful draw for negative and dark types of energies. The regular use of drugs and alcohol also draws these types of energies. Now one glass of wine is a social habit and does not affect our energy fields. However, when we become drunk, be it from alcohol or drugs, our auras becoming weakened substantially and negative invaders are attracted to the energy set up by this state. Smoking also greatly weakens the energy field and leaves us very vulnerable to negative influences.

Symptoms of Psychic Attacks and Dark Energies
There are many different symptoms that can indicate negative and dark psychic energies, spirits or entities. The following list identifies a few major symptoms. But these symptoms can also indicate other types of health problems and it's important to investigate all possibilities.

1. Suddenly acting totally out of character
2. Major changes in behavior for no reason
3. A loss of memory
4. Major changes in clarity of thinking or analytical ability
5. Sudden ongoing fatigue for no apparent reason
6. A drained feeling
7. Icy cold feeling on part or all of your body
8. Hearing someone's voice regularly
9. Hearing voices
10. Recurrent or frequent nightmares
11. Strange or recurring accidents
12. Feeling someone is watching you
13. A discomfort or fear in a specific room or area in your home or office
15. A loss of self-confidence
16. A sudden loss of energy
17. Sudden illnesses that elude diagnosis
18. Sudden illnesses that cannot be explained
19 Feeling someone touch you or bump into you when nobody is present
20. Sensing a presence · Sensing a large pair of eyes watching you or following you
21. Sudden or irrational difficulties with finances or relationships
22. Imagining monsters, animals or frightening shadows
23. Sudden depression without an apparent cause · Seeming ongoing bad luck
24. Visions or hallucinations
25. Irrational fear, anger or sorrow
26. A negative obsessive thought, desire or fetish that won't go away

This is not a complete list but should give you a fairly good idea of areas to look at in the physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual areas. Each person who is on the receiving end of psychic attacks or dark energetic forces will have their own indications and effects. If you are not certain please consult with an experienced energy worker knowledgeable in identifying and clearing energies from different types of psychic attacks and dark energies.

How Do You Pick Up Negative Energies, Entities and Dark Energies ?
Negative entities, spirits, and dark energies can be picked up almost anywhere where negative people, emotions or thoughts exist. They are drawn to negatives. Therefore you can pick these up at meetings, in stores, at any type of gathering, or in your own home. At times when individuals have suffered prolonged pain in a certain place, the energies of this pain can remain there even though a person has left that place.
Negative entities, spirits and dark energies are strongly drawn to individuals who use drugs and alcohol. When people get stoned, their auras get weak and these negative entities and energies can easily penetrate into a persons aura or body. Humans are quite defenseless when they are stoned.
Smoking cigarettes or any other type of drug seriously weakens an individuals aura making them quite vulnerable to the entry of negative entities, spirits, and dark energies. Smoking eventually creates holes in an individuals aura so that their vital energy can seep out making them feel fatigued as well as making them vulnerable to negative energies.
Negative energies can be absorbed or can attach themselves to objects during the process of being made or by resting somewhere where negative energies exist. If you have the opportunity, ask an experienced antique dealer to tell you some of their stories about negative energies in antique furniture.
Negative energies can attach themselves to an object when it's being made or just by where is lives. These can be very difficult to eliminate. This past Christmas I received a gift of a small box as gift given in love. One day as I was checking my desk I realized that negative energies were attached to this little box. They had attached themselves from dark energies in the store they were sold from. I placed the box in the sun but that was not sufficient to clear the box. I then washed it thoroughly with soap and water and then placed it in the sun again and that finally cleared the box. It is much more difficult to clear old energies from antique pieces.

Sex and Negative Energies, Entities and Spirits
It's important to look at sex as an exchange of energies, entities and potential vulnerability rather than from a moral perspective. When you have sex with another human being you absorb their very essence mixing it with your own essence. You literally absorb their good stuff as well as their bad stuff.
If you have sex with someone who has negative energies, entities or spirits, it is almost guaranteed that some of this negative energy will be transferred into your body and/or aura through the physical act of sex. It's very important to ensure you want to absorb the very essence and energetic elements of the other person before having sex with that person. The more sex partners you have, ensures the greater diffusion of your own very special essence. It amounts to not being quite yourself anymore.
A client told me the story of her father who had an affair with a neighbor who happened to be a Wicca witch. This lady conducted many ceremonies and cast many spells. After a period of time, this man, his wife and their children were all invaded by negative energies and entities. Be careful of the company you keep.

How To Eliminate Psychic Energies
There are a variety of methods available for eliminating dark and negative energies, entities, spirits, and thought forms. The following will give you many ideas of things you can do to help yourself. It will also help you to ask an energy worker the right questions if you need help to eliminate energies through psychic attacks.

You will read many different methods and find a wide spectrum of suggestions regarding clearings. Some will even suggest that it's important to know who has entered your body or aura whereas others do not believe this to be important. Personally, I don't think one needs to spend time identifying the characteristics of the invading energy. What's important is to know how to clear and protect yourself and your home.
The following are a number of methods you can use, normally in combination, to ensure you get clear and remain clear. There is no perfect solution that can be applied to every psychic attack. What someone could need would depend on the power and strength of the psychic attack or dark energy, and the present state of the individual who has absorbed this energy.

An Energy Practitioner Experienced in Psychic Attack Clearing
If you believe you are absorbing negative energies or are the recipient of psychic attacks, you should seriously consider asking for the help of an energy practitioner who is experienced in the identification, clearing and elimination of psychic dark energies, entities and spirits. If you believe that spirits, entities or hard dark energies have penetrated your body or aura, please ask an energy worker for help. Many dowsers are quite knowledgeable on reading energy fields and can be very helpful in identifying if you have different energies in your auras, body or home. It's important to identify and eliminate these as soon as possible but please don't try to do this yourself. You might even draw more negative energies to yourself if you attempt the clearing yourself and exacerbate the situation.
There is always a strong need to protect a home and individuals close to the person who's been invaded. Someone experienced in clearing will know how to protect everyone, including themselves.
The method or combination of methods to be recommended by the energy practitioner will depend on the strength of the psychic attack, whether its accidental or intentional, and depending on the individual who has absorbed this energy.

Smudging With White Sage
Smudging with white sage is an ancient custom of North American Indians who have used and continue to use this method for clearing unwanted energies. You can purchase dried white sage in a variety of shops today or you can grow and dry your own white sage.
It's important to clear yourself each day and to clear your home and car at least once a week as a normal maintenance procedure. Today most people are exposed to many negative energies in their workplaces, in stores, restaurants, and almost anywhere they go. Anyone can pick up negative energies by just walking around.
People who work in close quarters with others, and this includes teachers, nurses, physicians, therapists, factory workers, energy workers, office workers etc., need to smudge and clear daily. Some of the negative energy carried in one persons aura can easily flip into your own aura, eventually causing illness. Daily smudging is a powerful clearing tool to use on yourself and your office to keep your energy field clear of "accidental" energy transfers. Unfortunately, this is normally insufficient for "intentional" psychic attacks.
To smudge just do the following. Take a bowl about 4 or 5 inches in diameter and place a few inches of sand to cover the bottom of the bowl and to protect the bowl from heat. Place a few leaves of white sage on the sand and light the ends or edges of the leaves. Once the leaf is flaming well, blow out the flame and leave the leaf to smoke. This smoke is what is called smudging.
Pass the smoke over your head and all around you a number of times. If you are smudging your home, close all the windows and doors and pass the bowl with leaves smoking around each room, into corners, up to ceiling corners, and into closets and cupboards. Leave the doors and windows closed for a few hours. This smudging can dissolve or eliminate many negative and dark energies, entities and spirits from your home.
You can grow your own white sage plants and in late fall cut the branches into small clumps and dry them thoroughly. Once the clumps are dry, put the white sage in plastic bags and enjoy smudging throughout the winter. I energize the bunches while they are drying for added potency in clearing. To grow your own white sage plants, contact a Canadian herbal firm called Richters who sell high quality white sage plants. You can reach them at

Black Obsidian, Black Tourmaline or Pyrite Spray and Essences
You can make a spray by taking two teaspoons of the Choming Concentrate of either Black Tourmaline, Black Obsidian or Pyrite and mixing it with one cup of water. Then carefully spray your aura, or your home or office with this spray. This works in the same manner as the smudging, by dissolving or eliminating dark energies, spirits, or entities. These sprays are powerful protectors.

A Rock Shop Owner's Story
The owner of a rock shop recently told me a story about her experience with black tourmaline. She had been having many individuals with dark energies coming into her shop and decided to use black tourmaline to keep them out. She placed a grid using black tourmaline in her shop doorway to keep out these negative energies. Well not only did the negative energies not enter her shop that day, but she found that nobody entered her shop that day at all. She learned an important lesson about black tourmaline. But it's a powerful gem for keeping negative energies and beings away from you.

Black Obsidian and pyrite are just as powerful as black tourmaline but are more porous and allow good and loving energies to flow both ways, while protecting and keeping all negative energies away. Black Tourmaline tens to keep everything away. Mahogany and Rainbow Obsidian Gem Essences are powerful in eliminating negative energies caused by jealousy.
Just be careful not to mistake using a Black Obsidian, Black Tourmaline or Pyrite Gem Essence rather than the Mother Essence of these gems. Gem essences are not sufficiently potent to be diluted and used as a spray. Be certain to ask for the Mother Essence Concentrate for making a spray. I provide this and can be reached through my website at
The Black and Mahogany Obsidian Essences, the Black Tourmaline Essence, and the Pyrite Essence, can be very effective in clearing out negative energies lodged in bodies and auras. But the degree of clearing they can effect will depend on the type and strength of energy that has entered a body, aura, home, or office.

Black Obsidian and Black Tourmaline Gemstones
These gems are powerful protection to use just by carrying them in your hand or pocket. If you are going to be in environments where there is much tension, conflict, anger, manipulation or control, it's a good idea to keep one of these stones in your pocket.
Remember that if you keep it in your right hand or pocket, you are releasing and helping to release negative and dark energies. If you keep it in your left pocket you are drawing in energy to help you eliminate negative and dark energies. Anything held on the left side draws energy and anything on the right side releases energy.
If you carry these gemstones daily, they need to be rinsed under running water each morning to wash the negative energies they have absorbed. As you wash them state your intention to the Universe to cleanse them of negative energies. About every third day, place the stone in the sunshine and moonlight for 24 hours so that the gem can be re-energized. This is essential for the stone to continue working effectively. Gems are energized under the sun and moon. Some people suggest putting gems into salt water for cleansing but I consider that to be extremely harsh and severe, and lacking in love and caring for the gem. Running water, the sun and the moon are the perfect combination.

Tibetan Incense (made in Nepalese monasteries)
There is an incense made today in the monasteries of Nepal by Tibetans that is so pure that it can dissolve negative energies in your auras and home. This incense is made by hand in accordance with Tibetan traditions preserved through the centuries within the monastic orders of Tibet. It's made in the traditional Tibetan manner with 35 different spices and aromatic substances including nagi, saffron, and red and white sandalwood. This incense is now being made by Tibetans in monasteries in Nepal and can be purchased throughout the world.
It's important to know that incense, essences essentially anything made by machine loses much of its vibratory healing power and does not produce the same clearing or healing effect as incense or anything else made by hand.

Grounding - Being Fully Present in the Moment
Whenever you are thinking or trying to cleanse yourself of negative and dark energies, first ground yourself so you are deeply connected with Mother Earth. Sit down comfortably with both feet planted on the floor, and if possible, right on the earth. Imagine a thin silver cord that runs from the center of your being or from each of your ankles, way down to the center of the earth, right into the middle of Mother Earth. Hold this visualization until you feel deeply connected with Mother earth. This is an important beginning to many types of work with other dimensions. You want to connect with the majesty of other energies in other dimensions while remaining deeply connected to this beautiful planet of ours.
Certain gem essences are very effective in helping you stay grounded, centered and connected to the present moment. For purposes around psychic attacks I recommend Amber, Hematite or Zincite Gem Essences( Of course I consider Choming Essences that I make myself to be most effective.
If you like the feel of gemstones themselves, hold any of these gems in your right hand or right hand pocket for good protection. Please choose the shop where you purchase gems carefully. There are various qualities of gems and some have very little energy and therefore cannot provide any protection.

Spiritual Clearing of Intent
One of the most complex but most effective methods used to help clear yourself, your home, friends or pets is through the following meditative Spiritual Clearing of Intent. It is imperative as a first step that you call in SPECIAL PROTECTION for yourself. Please DO NOT try this clearing unless you are accustomed to working with intelligent energies from other dimensions and know how to protect yourself. If you try to clear someone with entities or spirits in their body or aura and do not protect yourself properly, the entities and spirits are almost guaranteed to flip into your body and aura and then you have the problem as well as the other person.
To clear yourself or someone else with intent, seat yourself in a very comfortable chair and close your eyes. Please ensure that you are coming from a place of love for all energies, including the negative psychic energies, when conducting this clearing. Once you are fully relaxed, connect with the intelligent energies of other dimensions and ask for protection from the Universe so that whatever is being cleared cannot find you or go into others. Then establish a cone of white light with another dimension so that the negative energies, entities, spirits that are being cleared can follow this lighted cone up into the Universe. Then ask the Universe to remove all negative energies, entities and spirits using the name of the person being cleared and ask the angels of the Universe to move this darkness up into the cone of light so they cannot harm anyone or anything else on this earth. Hold this thought and cone of light for a few minutes. You need to be able to hold this deep concentration for some time for this clearing to work.
After a number of minutes thank the Universe for its help and close down the cone of light. The critical factor with this clearing is the ability to connect with the energies of other dimensions. I estimate that only a few energy workers have the real ability to truly connect with intelligent energies of other dimensions to conduct this Spiritual Clearing of Intent. The Spiritual Clearing of Intent will not eliminate the psychic invaders if other dimensional intelligent energies are not connected with since they do the work. The energy worker is simply the instrument of connection.

Prayer and Connecting With Other Loving Spirits
People get very frightened when they believe they have been attacked psychically. They feel helpless and violated and without the necessary knowledge or skills to help or protect themselves. Fear is one of the greatest problems associated with psychic attacks since fear tends to magnify and intensify the experience of the person.
Prayer is so powerful and can help immensely when dealing with psychic attacks. If the person who has been attacked can pray to the God of their understanding for strength and courage, their fear should slowly abate and they will be better able to concentrate in applying a number of the suggestions for clearing that I make in this article. Positive prayer in love strengthens individuals to deal with their issues. Ask others to pray for you also as you go through this difficult experience. There are special convents and monasteries with sisters who do nothing but pray each day. Call them and ask them to pray for you as a special intention. Believe me, prayer works and needs to be part of the healing process.
For those who believe in the spirit world, ask those who are in other dimensions to guide you and help you through this experience. They are there and just need to be asked. Ask the highest of spirits and guardian angels to help you as part of this healing process for you.

Releasing Fear
Those who have been attacked need to release their fear and prayer and meditation is one of the simplest and most powerful supports for releasing this fear. It is much easier to get clear and stay clear when the fear is diminished.
Container Dissolving Method: The following manner of releasing fear takes some practice but it really works wonders in releasing fear. Close your eyes and slowly gather all the fear inside your body and put it all into one place, your solar plexus area. Take lots of time to ensure you gather all the fear into one place. Then build a soft-sided container to hold all this fear, a container than can expand or contract depending on how much is inside it. Concentrate on this container and keep shooting rays or laser beams of white light at it. These beams will break the fear into very small pieces. Then hold your hands out and imagine all the tiny pieces of fear running out of your body, your finger tips, your eyes, your ears, until all the fear is gone. Keep seeing the fear release from your body until the container is empty and disappears.

Deep Breathing: Another simpler way of relaxing and releasing fear is through deep breathing. Sit or lie down so that you are relaxed. Begin by inhaling on a count of 5 then hold this breath to the count of five and then release this breath to the count of 5. Take a break to the count of 5 and begin the inhalation again. Do this slowly and you should find that you begin to relax after about the sixth or seventh breath. If possible, continue this exercise for 10 minutes to achieve deep relaxation. You might consider doing this exercise prior to the container method I just described above.

Protecting Visualization Techniques From Anger or Revenge
This technique works particularly well when others are angry with you and are sending you angry or vengeful thought forms. The person can be very angry, cursing you and wishing you harm. They probably do not realize that they are sending you these thought forms that can lodge in your body or aura. You may hear their voice in your mind, see a blurry vision of them speaking to you in anger, or just be feeling very uncomfortable. Do you remember the many times when you had angry conversations with someone who was not present? You may have thought you were talking to yourself but in reality you were sending out angry thought forms when you did this.
The following is a visualization I have used many times that has worked well when used properly. Visualize that you are where you are and this other person is about 100 yards away from you. Then visualize a Plexiglas wall that drops between the two of you. This glass wall is about four to six inches thick and is such that anything loving can penetrate this wall easily, while negative images or thoughts cannot be heard through this wall or in any way penetrate this wall. Hold the image of this wall and I guarantee you that the angry voices and images will disappear almost immediately. This will give you real protection from angry thought forms so they cannot penetrate or lodge in your body or aura.

Surrounding Yourself in White Light
White light is the light of love and using this practice can help with minor negative energies. You can surround yourself with white light and feel the presence of a Loving Universe. However, this white light often does not keep out the heavier dark energies and normally does not keep out entities and spirits. It's a good practice to connect with the Universe but not very powerful in protecting you from certain energetic practices.

Cleansing and Rebalancing of Auras and Chakras
You will need to ask an Energy Worker to do this for you, but if you have been on the receiving end of a psychic attack, your chakras will be distorted by these energies and no longer working properly. You will also have holes in your auras. Ask an Energy Worker to bring your chakras back to their perfect shape, to ensure they are spinning properly and at the perfect speed and to close the holes in your aura.
At times part of a psychic attack could include attaching cords, hooks and even placing nails in the midriff area. Ask the Energy Worker to clear all hooks, attachments, markings, and any negative energy rays that might have become attached to you.
Ask the Energy Worker to seal your aura, to eliminate all holes in your aura, and to make certain your aura is not leaking in any way. They should be checking you at a distance for two or three days after the sealing to ensure there are no leakages.

Personal Affirmations
As you think so you will behave - that's so accurate. You need to adjust your belief system so that you will believe that you will be safe and have the overall feeling of the love and protection of the Universe. An affirmation is a statement you make from the bottom of your heart, with deep felt emotions, stating the effect you wish to experience. For safety from psychic attacks you could say "I am safe and totally protected by the Universe from all energy that is not for my highest good". Or you could say "I will draw to myself today the powerful loving and protecting energies of the Universe".

Protecting Yourself Against Psychic Attacks
The following is a summary list of things you can do to protect yourself from psychic attack:

Clear your aura with white sage or Tibetan incense on a daily basis.
Regularly spray your home with Black Tourmaline, Black Obsidian or Pyrite Essence Spray
Keep a loving and caring attitude towards others
Keep yourself grounded with cords to the center of Mother Earth or use Gem Essences to keep yourself grounded. Amber, Hematite and Zincite Essences and gemstones are powerful for grounding.
Include time for prayer and meditation on a daily basis.
In your daily spiritual practices, include positive personal affirmations for your overall comfort and safety.
On a regular basis, ask an Energy Worker to clear all attachments, markings, or negative rays that have become attached to you. Also ask this person to ensure your chakras are operating at optimum efficiency.
If you are able to connect with energies of other dimensions, clear yourself of all negative energies, entities, spirits, attachments, markings and negative rays using the Spiritual Clearing of Intent.
When required to spend time with individuals who are in conflict, make a practice of keeping a black obsidian, black tourmaline or pyrite gemstones in your right hand pocket. Be certain to cleanse and re-energize the stones.
Practice deep breathing exercises when you become fearful and anxious.
When in doubt, call an Energy Worker to work with you to help you clear negative and dark energies and psychic spells.

A Friend's Story

I'll like to tell you a story about a friend of mine who had a serious psychic attack directed at her intentionally. Two years prior she had experienced many difficulties including the death of her partner, financial problems, and difficulties at work. At about the same time her health began to deteriorate very quickly. Her physician sent her to at least 20 different specialists and nobody could tell her what was wrong with her. Her physician finally told her to go home and rest since there was nothing else he could do. She sat and stared out of a window for six to seven hours each day for a year, seriously depressed, never having suffered depression before. She knew her mind was working, even though her thinking process had slowed down substantially, but somehow she could not complete her sentences or even say what she wanted to say. Her fatigue was huge and she had become quite listless and inactive. If she went to the store one day she had to rest in bed the next day. The smallest activity fatigued her substantially.
She visited a mystic who informed her that she had been invaded by very dark energies, that someone had intentionally cast spells on her, and that her aura had been broken into in a number of places leaving large holes. There were many holes in her aura and many negative and dark energies, entities and spirits in her body, aura and home. For two weeks she cleansed her home daily with white sage and obsidian spray. She cleansed her aura daily. She held a very large piece of black tourmaline gem in her right hand to help release these energies. She was quite terrified of the energies that had invaded her and created havoc with her health. For the following 5 days she held the black tourmaline in her left hand drawing in the healing energies and protection she required within. She held this piece even during her sleep. She had been experiencing very strange headaches and pains around her heart which lasted for days. As soon as one of these headaches started she held the black tourmaline harder and the headache left her immediately. Some of the dark energies must have lodged in her brain and the black tourmaline released and eliminated these harmful energies.
This lady has a deep faith and belief in family and friends who have passed over and believed that they were present with her and giving her strength and comfort throughout her clearing and healing. She worked very hard to maintain her connection with the spirit world and received much courage and strength from them.
I repeatedly cleansed her doing distance energy work with her aura and body to help release the energies she had absorbed as well as the markings and other connections. Once many of these energies were released I sealed her aura with special protections so these negative energies could no longer find her or invade her. Her chakras had become distorted from these energies and these were cleansed and rebalanced.
Within two weeks the majority of her depression was gone. Her energy began to return immediately. She now had the opportunity to deal with her life issues. For the past year she had not been able to sleep normally and she began to sleep relatively normally again once the clearing process was underway.
Without this releasing and cleansing her sickness would have become deeper and deeper. The symptoms of psychic attack are not always cut and dried. This lady had experienced many serious difficulties in her life, and at the same time had had serious psychic attacks directed at her.
Subsequent to the clearings she remembered that the last people who had lived in the home she was living in had been in the drug business. Please be aware that drug use and excessive alcohol consumption leave your energetic body totally unprotected so that dark energies, entities and spirits can enter and stay there very easily. Places where drugs are sold and consumed, where addicts are present, are filled with dark and negative energies. Her home had been full of negative energies from the time she moved in. In addition, others had attacked her energy field to control and manipulate her.
It was very important that the lady became a full participant in her clearing and healing process and did not expect the Energy Worker to "do it for her". The energy worker provided the tools and guidance but the lady did the work herself. As a result she learned a great deal about looking after her energetic bodies and was instrumental in clearing her negative energies and entities. She has other physical and emotional issues to deal with but they are much clearer now that the negative and dark energies are gone.
