How to Protect Yourself Psychically
Have you ever been in a large group of people, such as a a restaurant, a concert or even an airport, and started feeling anxious, nervous, uneasy or stressed?
Have you ever been close to someone and when they were down and feeling mopey, you noticed yourself beginning to get a little low in Spirits, too?
Have you ever felt so bad for someone going through something rough and painful, and noticed that your heart began to ache for them?
Can you feel the emotions or illnesses of those around you?
Do you have the ability to sense those in Spirit when they're around?
If you, it's likely that you're picking up on the energy of those around you!
And doing so, is not always helpful.
In order to protect yourself from getting burned when going out into a crowd, or from getting cranky after spending a day with a negative friend – you can:
Turn Down Your Gifts
In this post, we’re going to focus on talking about how put on protective layers. In the next post, we're discussing how to turn down your gifts.
Whether you began life with naturally fairer skin or your skin has become more fair naturally, with age and time on earth – there's something for certain – it's probably going to continue being fair from here on out. In other words, if you are already a clairsentient or sensitive, welcome to the forever club.
Having sensitive skin doesn't have to be a disease that you live with forever, because you can learn how to manage your gifts healthfully.
Wear a Protective Layer
Earlier this week, I was hanging out in the airport – a place filled with thousands of people and usually most of them are feeling anxious, worried or nervous for some reason or another. Scared of their flight arriving on time, or not sure who is going to be picking them up upon arrival or going to visit someone they haven't seen in a very long time.
Whatever the case, the airport is a place where collectively, people who are currently feeling ungrounded are temporarily united. A hospital, is another such place.
In an airport, I want to stay peaceful. So I put on a psychic raincoat.
The Psychic Raincoat
A psychic rain coat is an energetic barrier you can use to prevent yourself from picking up the energetic debris of others.
By applying and putting on a protective shield or layer, you can preemptively or in the heat of the moment – protect yourself from minor energy splashes - small interactions with strangers and non-strangers that can affect you and how you feel. I often do this when I know I’ll be having a lot of passing interactions with people I haven’t met yet - at the grocery store, the airport, the beach, a festival, etc.
When do you use it?
- When you are in a really good mood and want to ensure you stay that way
- When you are determined not to let anyone else's energy rub off on you and affect how you feel in this moment
- When you want to do a ‘trial run experiment’ to compare on how you feel in the same situation with or without a rain coat layer
- If you are interacting with someone and the interaction is difficult for you
- If you are seeing someone from your past, and you want to maintain your 'present you’
- state of mind
- If you are prone to picking up psychic information when it's not necessary
- When you want to stand your ground and maintain your sense of self in a situation
- Any time you want to not absorb someone else’s energy and be influenced by it
- Any time you want to reduce your sensitivity to Spirits and intuitive information
How do you apply it?
- Find a place where you can be alone - a bathroom stall is usually private enough.
- Take three deep breaths.
- Visualize yourself walking into a laboratory room. In that laboratory room, imagine yourself seeing a rubber apron – one that the technicians wear. This lab rubber apron, protects them from getting anything on their skin or clothing that may be harmful.
- Imagine yourself walking over to this apron, looping it over your neck, tying it behind your back. This apron, while you wear it, will protect you from your root to heart chakras - safely blocking anything from getting on your core and affecting you adversely.
- Look around the lab – the other technicians are smartly wearing lab coats, too. Now, see yourself walking across the lab, to the nearest equipment closest. Looking behind the door, you find a rack of white lab coats. Lift the first one you see off the rack and surprise - it's your size, perfectly.
- Put on your lab coat, one arm at a time. And then, when it's completely on, button up your coat.
- Now you are psychically protected from getting energetically splashed!
This is a visualization technique that works!
Need a beginner modification? This technique requires your ability to imagine. Many people actually prefer to simply apply a light shield, which is easier to visualize.Read on in this post to find out how to use that alternative technique.
