Five Ways to Protect Yourself From Psychic Attacks

psychic attacks

Psychic attacks may manifest in the dream world or through energetic impacts on the body in the waking world. They are mental intrusions, efforts from free-floating energies or specific people, to enter your psyche and make some kind of detrimental impact or extract information.

Try not to fear since 1) the greatest defense tool is the power of love and light; 2) negative energies thrive in the presence of additional negative energies, like fear. This article provides guidance for protection using principles of love and positivity. Some psychic attacks require embodied warrior energy and/or the assistance of professional healers and shamans.

Five Signs of a Psychic Attack

  • Disabling fear or anxiety
  • Nightmares or night terrors, often involving attacks
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Emotional or spiritual paralysis
  • Questioning your path, values or sanity

Five Practices to Protect Yourself From Psychic Attacks

1. Clearing Ceremony

Use plant medicine, like sage, and crystal allies to clear negative energy and spirits from your environment and energetic field.  There are many variations of these ceremonies: try buying white sage and sweet grass. Burn the white sage and brush the smoke around your whole body then continue to fan the smoke around your house and particularly around your bed, if you have night terrors.

While you sage yourself and your environment, concentrate on the banishing or removal of negative or dark energy by holding light and love in your mind’s eye. Next, repeat the process with sweet grass. As you bless yourself and your space with sweet grass, invite in positive energy, guiding spirits, love and any other

I release negative energies so that I may serve my higher purpose.

2. Cord Cutting and Earth Cording

Try the powerful practice of cord-cutting at night and Earth cording during the day. Before you go to bed, imagine a cord between yourself and any person or thing that comes to mind, the cord originating from your belly. Using a pair of imaginary scissors, cut the cord between yourself and any external energy that you envision.

You can envision this as a series of cords or perform the exercise cord-by-cord. In the morning, just after you awake, envision a cord connecting you, from your belly to the center of the Earth. The cord is strong, flexible, omnipresent, and nurturing. Prior to bed, as you cut cords, say this intention aloud:

I release energetic attachments so that I may serve my higher purpose.

Saltwater can also be used for a more powerful ceremony. Begin by gathering all the energetic chords from your chakras into one handful. Using the other hand, slice the air between your body and the handful, and dump the chords into the saltwater. Repeat again with the chords coming out of your back chakras.

3. Surround Yourself in Light

Visualization meditations offer powerful protection and support, and most importantly, a reminder that the source is with you. Envision your heart space as a white flame. Watch the flame expand and grow, as the white light emanates outward from your heart to your extremities, then beyond. You are surrounded by a large white light that does not originate from behind you but rather from inside you. Repeat this mantra during this practice:

I am divinely guided and protected. I am light. I am love.

4. Strengthen Your Auric Field

Deeply rooted in Eastern philosophy, the auric field is the pulsing vibration or energy around a being. It can extend up to 25 feet in all directions from your body and is a colorful combination of all your chakras. Your aura may change, depending on your surroundings, yet as a divine being, you are able to cultivate the strength of your aura as an energetic boundary. In fact, you are accountable for what you allow in and out of your auric field.

While standing, envision the placement and colors of each chakra, from red at your feet to violet at your crown, beating and circling like great wheels. Imagine the wheels growing in size until they begin to merge into a beautiful tie-dyed circle around your being. One color may emerge as your primary auric color. Envision this field around you and remember that you may control the two-way permeability of this field: you may let in what you wish, and send out what you wish. Repeat the mantra below during this meditation:

I let positive energy in and deflect negative energy. I am radiant.

5. Dream Work

Since psychic attacks often happen while people are sleeping, and manifest as night terrors or nightmares, working with your dream world is an efficient tactic for addressing psychic attacks. Write in a dream journal and document your thoughts upon awakening and memories of your dreams.

Prior to falling asleep, ask to remember your dreams, for your dreams to be of light and love, and call in your ancestral or spirit guides to protect you in the nebulous landscape of your dreams. You may also try playing binaural beats as you fall asleep, lulling you into a state of deep relaxation. Repeat this mantra before bed:

Ancestors and spirit guides, please guide and protect me in my dream



Clairvoyants Able to 'See' Energy Healing in Action, Study Finds

Clairvoyants See Energy Healing

An important new scientific study shows that energy can be both channeled to produce healing, and “seen” through extended perception, beyond the five senses.

The Institute of Noetic Sciences, or IONS, has been studying the nature of reality through rigorous scientific exploration for nearly 50 years. In their latest study, IONS scientists set out to validate both the practice of reiki and the phenomenon of clairvoyance or “extended seeing.”                                                                                                                                                                                         

Dr. Helanè Wahbeh is the head of research at IONS, and has been studying energy medicine for decades.

“People who are energy medicine practitioners might call energy this system that runs throughout the body that they experience as energetic, magnetic, tingling, etc. around the body,” Wahbeh said. 

“One type of energy medicine that is commonly used around the world is called Reiki, and Reiki is a technique that originated in Japan. It’s based on the principle that the therapist can actually channel energy into the patient and activate their natural healing process — their innate ability to heal themselves, often releasing obstacles and allowing an optimal flow throughout the body.”

Reiki is one of the best-studied energy medicine modalities, having been shown in clinical studies to be effective in conditions including pain, anxiety, depression, cancer, and others. 

In this IONS experiment, researchers wanted to study the effect of Reiki on people with a variety of physical and mental health conditions to test the principle that the modality uses a universal life force energy and can therefore be applied to anyone for any condition.

“We had six Reiki masters with extensive experience give 30-minute sessions to 40 participants. The participant would come in, they would lay down in this reclining chair, and the Reiki practitioner would say that they were going to start their session, they would place their hands on different parts of their body and direct the Reiki energy for 30 minutes,” Wahbeh said.

The results were profound.
