Spiritual Protection

In actively walking the path of Spirit, it is almost a certainty that, from time-to-time, one will feel overwhelmed by the energies awakened, and may perceive that as being under psychic attack. Whilst inevitably true that we are influenced by the thoughts and feelings of others, it does not necessarily follow that this is an attack of some sort.

Nevertheless, there are a number of things one can do in these circumstances to increase inner strength and determination. I have used these strategies numerous times, with excellent results.

Perhaps easiest is invocation of the Light. Take some deep breaths, focus on your heart and crown chakras, and say aloud, “I invoke the Light. May it enfill, enfold, and protect me.” Do this three times, imagining a ray of clear light descending into your body.

Another very useful tactic is to hold an imaginary sword in your right hand, and a flaming torch in the left. Use the sword to cut away all negative, outworn, and no longer needed ties, bonds, and attractions at the solar plexus. Then use the torch to sear and close the opening. Do this three times.

Also, you can sit quietly and say aloud three times, “I release all that is not for me into the Light for purification and healing. Spirit is guiding, guarding, and protecting me. I am safe.”

You can use all three methods in combination and repeat as needed, until a sense of peace and calm emerges.

Crystals can be of enormous help in these circumstances. Dedicate one to self-protection, preferably clear or smoky quartz. Use directed intention to ask the crystal that it be used for this purpose.

Then, in times of stress, sit quietly, hold the crystal in both hands, and imagine clear light penetrating to the core of your being. Take at least five minutes to do this. You also may carry the crystal with you, if desired.

Another thing that can help is not giving in to despair or hopelessness because life is not bringing you love and joy. It is vital to keep the faith, projecting positive thoughts and feelings, and being patient. Transformation is an ongoing process, and changes take time.

As much as possible, rid yourself of people and activities that are not bringing creative and furthering energy into your life, and continue walking the path. Remember that you will attract whatever is needed, and allow the new events, experiences, and opportunities to emerge in their own manner and time.

  1. Hi Joy.  Seems that you had quite a time dealing with some of the other realms, but glad you made it through!  It is always somewhat tricky when encountering strange energies, and not knowing if they are in your best interest or not.

    It is also excellent that you are trusting your experience, especially in terms of placing the amethyst crystal in a safe place for now, knowing it will be there when you feel ready to work with its energies.

    What Animal Spirit are you working with?  They can be wonderful allies along the path.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or to share more of your experiences, and glad my article was helpful!

    Many blessings,


  2. Hi Merlin,  I want to thank you for your article on Spiritual Protection.  I'm just starting into meditation to help heal my body, been at it about three months.  While meditating, a purple fog oozed in and then became like a tornado and cleaned out all my energies.  That's a good thing, but it sucked out my Animal Spirit too, and he fought it every way he could.  Very sad……  I use to work with gold light, after the event, only purple would appear……  It took three days to find and get Animal Spirit back to me.  I didn't want to meditate again for fear of loosing him again……  I read you article and took courage with what you wrote.  White fire was used to get the purple fog under control and then I used the phrase "All purple go to sleep, arise at my command!"  The interesting thing is, the purple didn't go into a chakra, but out of my body towards a deep purple amethyst I bought from ya'll……  Whenever I close my eyes and see purple, I say the command and it wisps off in the direction of the crystal.  It too has been 'put to sleep,' in a nice pouch, behind a glass door, with a sage smudging stick in front of it.  At another time, I'll wake the crystal, but not now…..  Beginners make mistakes or don't realize how deep they're getting.  I read about the purple mist and decided there were safer, more controllable ways to protect myself.  Yeah, I'm an empath, but not a victim…… If you want to know more about my Animal Spirit, that's cool.  The circumstances are wild.  ******  You don't have to post this, as this may be crazy to someone who hasn't gone down the path.*****  Thank you for listening to me,  Joy
