I’m going to pause in writing about our experiences with gentle spirits at this point because I feel strongly that now is the time to write about negative spirits and how to protect yourself from them AND negative energy in general.
This chapter is not just for families of psychic children. The protection techniques listed below work for anyone in need of them.
If you do have a child who sees spirits, however, I can’t stress enough how vitally important it is to create a safe home environment for them; a place where they don’t have to hide who they are; a place where they can gently develop and understand their gifts without fear of low-level spirits.
I want to remind you that these are my personal recommendations. They worked for us and continue to work to this day. Chances are, as you get to know your child and/or yourself and grow in knowledge both spiritually and energetically, you will come up with your own twist or take on other great suggestions from people with experience.
Most importantly, you must understand that you and/or your child are not alone and that everything will be okay!
God, The Great Spirit, love, the universe, etc. has a plan, and it does not involve you and/or your child being miserable.
Now, before I proceed with spiritual protection techniques, I need to mention that the majority of these types of entities are just pests. Like the mosquito, they look for and suck up any negative emotions they can find from humans. Fear, worry, stress, anger, and hatred are delicious flavors to low-levels. If they can make you feel afraid, then that is especially satisfying for them.
But the opposite emotions can send them packing. My sister has the sweetest way of dealing with low-levels. She shows them compassion and love and says, “Oh, you poor creature. You must be so miserable. I’m sorry you suffer this way. I’m going to send you a whole bunch of love and a mental hug! Here it comes!”
The entity is instantly repulsed and leaves quickly. I can almost hear it saying, “Ew! Gross! Stop that!”
By tuning into the beautiful, white light of love inside of us and projecting it out either verbally or visually, you can, in a pinch, send these entities into the light and away from you.
In the meantime, let’s move into Home Protection.
CLEANSING YOUR HOME
What you need:
Faith (If you don’t believe in a higher power, chances are you believe in love, so tap into it and use it.)
Intention (Take charge, speak with a strong voice, and mean what you say.)
A bundle of dried sage (Other herbs and ingredients in your cabinet can do the trick in a pinch – vinegar, rosemary, cumin, dill, thyme, and basil leaves among them. You can also use “imaginary sage”. It may sound silly, but the secret to the spirit world is this: whatever you visualize becomes reality in the spirit world. If you visualize burning sage and then carry it and the smoke with you around the house, it will work, if you do it with intention. Isn’t that amazing?
A bowl (to catch the ashes from the sage, of you use the real kind)
Archangels Ariel and Michael
If you believe in Archangels, ask for Ariel and Michael to come stand by you as you bless and walk through the house. Ask them to place protective barriers around your property when you are done cleansing the space. This is powerful protection and is often permanent.
When you’re ready, light the sage and blow it out to create a gentle flow of smoke. You may have to relight and blow out a few times throughout. Keep a bowl under it to catch any small sparks that fall.
Stand with the sage in the center of the house and say something along these lines (change the words to personally represent your beliefs and values, even if it’s only using the force of love):
Father Spirit, Creator of Life and Love, draw close to this family.
We are your children, Father, and we honor you.
We ask that you bless our family and bless this house and this property.
Please close any portals on the property and take all spirits and entities to the highest dimension for their highest good.
These are strong words.
Anything negative in your home will be removed. Earthbound spirits will be taken to white light doorways and loved ones called in to help them and darker spirits will be taken to where they can’t hurt anyone anymore.
I would also suggest memorizing the last sentence of the blessing and ask an archangel to do this for you if you are ever in a situation where you feel threatened by spirits in general or feel that something is not right in your environment.
Now, walk along each wall of the house and through the center of each room, pausing at each window and door. Trace the shape of them with the sage and visualize forming an impenetrable seal of light over each one.
For added benefit, you can also stand in the center of your home and imagine pulling white light from the source of love (above you) down through the top of your head and into your body. Then visualize throwing this white light out from your body through your house, out to the edges of your property and a bit beyond.
When you return to where you started, tamp out the sage (much like a cigar) and take a deep, relaxing breath. You should feel a change in the energy of the house.
I recommend repeating this ritual once every fifteen to thirty days.
FOR ADDED PROTECTION:
Ask an Archangel to place a “white flame blessing” on each member of the household. This will stop spirit attachments and create a safe environment around the body.
I recommend that you sage the bedrooms every night, right before bedtime. You needn’t say too much – just a quick prayer of protection and request for a good night’s sleep.
EXTRA SAFETY TIPS:
Used objects: If you bring a used or crafted object into your home, run it through sage smoke.
Objects can carry negative energy or spirit attachments that aren’t welcome.
Salt lamps: I learned about salt lamps from a spirit medium. I recommend buying one to keep in each bedroom where it is needed. Low-level entities avoid them.
Herb mixtures: I also recommend placing or hanging bundles of herbs (I put mine in plastic balls from craft stores) in each room.
Here’s an ingredients list that I found to be amazingly affective:
1 tsp dill
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp clove
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp basil
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp cinnamon
1 bay leaf
A bit of dried sage
1 tsp periwinkle and lavender (if available)
It is a scientific fact that every living being and inanimate object on this planet vibrates with a frequency of its own.
I often call crystals “medicine stones” because I believe that The Great Spirit gave each of them individual frequencies that can be used to help our bodies and minds in a variety of ways.
When you carry them close to your body, your body responds by trying to match its vibration with those of the crystal. In this way, bad vibrations can affect us as well. Ever notice how being around someone grumpy (even if they don’t talk) makes you feel grumpy too? This is how frequencies and vibrations work. When you are aware of them, you are better able to decide what you keep near your body.
There are many crystals and stones that are beneficial to someone with special abilities, but here is a list of my favorites – the absolute must-haves. I recommend purchasing the crystals listed below and keeping them close to or on you always. Keep in mind that I only list some of their uses. To find out more, check online.
THE AMAZING FIVE
This stone is powerful. It sucks in bad energy and throws it back out as positive. On top of this, it also absorbs harmful EMF from electronics. It is a comforting stone, sucking up all your sadness and helping you to see the bright side. But most importantly for us, it protects from psychic attacks, from both humans and spirits.
I recommend keeping this stone in the pocket or on the body always. Sleep with it by your head at night, if you can’t wear it.
This stone protects the aura from the energy of humans and spirits. Being both an empath and an introvert, I never go anywhere without this stone. Even when I’m in a huge crowd, I’m never bothered or drained by others’ energy, as I am without it.
Labradorite is especially wonderful for sleep. To me, it feels like someone shutting a door between me and a noisy party going on outside my room and then gently laying a fuzzy, warm blanket across me.
As I’ve mentioned before, I am also sensitive to spirits, and I’ve always felt especially vulnerable while sleeping. My guard is down, and for some reason, spirits think that two a.m. is a great time to talk.
One time, I forgot to wear it when I went to bed and was woken twice by the sound of a ghostly cat howling and a child’s voice chattering happily in the next room. I grabbed my stone and bam! Peaceful silence.
This crystal has one of the highest vibrations. Hold it in your hand, and you’ll often feel a little warm and tingly where it sits. It can both cleanse and charge your other crystals and needs no cleansing itself.
It protects against unwanted spirits, attachments, and negative influences. It also guards against fear, which is an attractive energy to many ghosts.
This has a strong dampening effect on fear. It protects against unwanted spirits and helps to raise your body’s positive vibrations, enhancing your natural ability to connect with angels and other light beings.
CLEANSING YOUR CRYSTALS
We don’t just absorb crystal’s vibrations; they absorb ours too. This is why cleansing them is important.
To do this, simply set them next to or on top of a selenite crystal, or light your sage bundle and run the crystal through the smoke a couple of times. Remember that selenite also charges the other crystals, which is a bit like giving them a great night’s sleep, so they are ready to do their job protecting you.
In my home, I use selenite or a VibesUp mat (www.vibesup.com) for charging, which is like selenite times fifty. I also recommend buying one of their “Earth ION pyramids”. Negative spirits hate them. They’re awesome!
Black Tourmaline doesn’t need charged as much as other crystals, but I still do it every week or two anyway. Labradorite needs it every few days, as does spirit quartz and staurolite.
As mentioned in Chapter 3, this herb made a huge difference with my daughter and myself.
(DO NOT EAT IT. I mean for you to wear it.)
From what we can tell, negative spirits are only able to get about forty feet from the stuff. They don’t like it at all.
Now, I’m not saying you won’t sense them at a distance, but a distance is way better than up close. They will have a much harder time harassing a human from that distance.
If you keep your home cleansed on a regular basis, you shouldn’t have any problems with negative entities. The periwinkle is an added protection and creates a “cleansed space” around your body, so it’s especially important to wear it outside of your home. It keeps dark entities out of your body space and stops them from following you or your child home, which I’ve had experience with as well.
You can purchase vials and the herb online and make your own amulets or search for someone who sells them pre-made. www.etsy.com is a great place to look.
ONE FINAL NOTE
If you’ve done all the above and still feel a negative entity in your home, then chances are you have a spirit attachment, human or otherwise.
There are energy cords that form between people we love, work with, and sometimes even just have an intense moment with. These invisible cords are formed by thoughts and emotions and can come from both people or just one. They can even form online, from a heated conversation.
You can learn more about these cords and how to cut the negative ones in Chapter 21.
