Spiritual Protection is something that everyone should know how to do, regardless of your religious beliefs (or lack of). Negativity in any form can be damaging to the human energy field (aura). Fear, anger, depression, negative people/places, arguments and more actually create negative energy that can cling to you or build up in your home and cause problems over time. Spiritual cleansings are very important, for yourself and your home. I recommend they be done at a minimum every few months, more if you find yourself feeling stressed or fatigued.
I mentioned White Light protection in this past post. The following visualization is one I use often in my spiritual practice. If you have a situation (or a person) in your life that is generating a lot of negative energy, and you cannot remove yourself for whatever reason, you can protect yourself using this visualization. Just as darkness flees before light, White Light forms a protective barrier which blocks negative energy from entering your personal space, allowing only positive energy through.
Sit upright in a chair with your feet firmly on the ground. Close your eyes and breathe deeply.
As you inhale, picture pure white light being drawn down into your body - from your angels, God/Goddess, creator, Source, or whatever you claim as your Higher Power - through the top of your head. As you exhale, visualize the light filling up your body, starting at your head and slowly moving downward through your feet.
Next, sense it expanding outwards from your solar plexus, pushing away negative energy as it grows larger. Visualize it expanding into an egg-shaped sphere of brilliant white light completely surrounding you, from head to toe and extending three feet all around your body. Really focus on seeing it clearly in your mind, and keep building it up so it’s SUPER bright and glowing. See it as a solid barrier of protection that negativity cannot cross. Hold this visualization for about five minutes, if possible. If you wish, you can also say a prayer of protection while doing this. You do not have to get fancy with the wording. Say something such as, “God/dess, please surround me with a sphere of powerful, brilliant white light. Send the Archangels to protect me from all harm, and please send my Spirit Guides to guide me, guard me and keep away all negative energies and influences.”
For added protection, you can keep a black tourmaline crystal with you throughout the day. It should be charged with the intention of absorbing negative energy and cleansed regularly. Above, you can see my black tourmaline, selenite wands, and sage for smudging.
