Astral Protection and Shielding
You and Shielding
Astral and Psychic Protection
One of the biggest things that people talk about in regards psychic defense are malevolent spirits or entities that are harassing them either through dreams or presence around them. However not all of these disturbances are always entities. It needs to be said that some folks are just walking beings of screwed up energy.
I would like to go through a few things in order to help novices and advanced practitioners alike in defending themselves against parasitical or malevolent entities.
First when you think of things like this you are always told good shielding. Though yes this is a fundamental practice and I fully endorse it it is not the first aspect you should be looking into to stop harassing activities from happening. Shielding is a working defense for the situation you are in not for stopping it from happening.
The first step to take is the mundane one and assessing when it is happening. Is there a certain time that every incident is taking place? Can you connect where it is happening and associate that with the time that it has been taking place? Further into this is there someone there that is in that location and those times when this is taking place.
Remembering what I said about folks that are walking energy catastrophes it very well may be them that is causing your own energies to be in discord. However people that leak energy like that can also be acting as beacons for entities that thrive on that sort of flavor. More often than not I have seen those that without any energy control being fed upon and acting as a tool for entities to interact with people around them.
Knowing this enables you to make a decision on whether or not this area. person, or both should be avoided. If however these things are impossible whether through your choice or need I will give some alternatives.
Once again we head back into the aspect of good shielding. Many already know how to shield, and for those who do not, you can do a search on the various aspects and techniques of shielding.
The next step is knowing how to cleanse yourself after the contact you have been in. Again there are several ways of doing this, I use water in mine. The purpose however is to clean your energies like you would your physical body to get all the grime off. Keeping crap energies all over yourself leads yourself up to have your shielding more weakened by the constant assault you are going through in every contact with them. It also lessens your ability to naturally defeat them without doing other drastic things.
The next step that should be in conjunction with shielding is a decent offense.
By now you should know the effect that these parasites are having on you. Take the opposite effect of that and think of it clearly. Normally entities like this are not flexible in the type of flavors that they are already using.
Begin by some deep breathing to center yourself and get into a proper "working consciousness". As you breathe allow yourself to notice your energy -- with every inhalation, imagine your "aura" filling with the feeling opposite of the parasites effects. If you wish, you can add color to this exercise - choose something that represents cold and distancing-- Pale blue for distancing, or a sickening red with black flecks in it for projection of the illness (is what I would use).
As you inhale, imagine yourself expanding your energy field, and that the energy is cold solitary, or aggressive and uncomfortable energy (to the entity or entities only). Envision either the entities not wanting to be close to you and being repelled from the energy you are projecting or getting sick. Work on this for 15-20 minutes until you can fully experience the energy field yourself and can maintain it.
Now you will have seen what would have been the sickening effect. This will work on the entity, however more stubborn ones will be more likely to stick around depending on their power level. My opinion is that if they are malevolent to me then they ought to be destroyed and enhancing the sickening effect to them will probably do that if you come on strong and fast enough. However for those of you that don't want to work that aggressively you can keep the practice up until they leave by their own will.
With the entity or entities cleared you can then work on some warding to use if possible. If not the technique given should be mastered and used often in association with the scenario given.

Hello Kitty. Thanks for taking the time to stop by, read and share with us your experiences. It does seem that attacks happen when we are seeking as well as when we are in a weakened spiritual or mental state.

I've had some experiences with malevolent entities, as you call them. They tend to come around when I am REALLY going through some spiritual transitions and deepening my understanding of my own spirituality and connections to the universe. After lucid dreaming they seem to come around...and I can feel their presence when they do. They also seem to make themselves known to me through sleep paralysis.

Hello Electro-Denizen. Thanks for sharing your experiences and thoughts on this topic. Most interesting! Also, thanks for stopping and reading. :)

As a young adult (21 or so) I was plagued by such things. But I was in a difficult space at the time, with an uncontrolled psychic opening. You're quite right about identifying the underlying reason. One thing I've learned is that - for me personally - the best thing is a kind heart and clear mind. Weird energies don't seem to get a foothold in like this.
I'm beginning to understand more and more the necessity of protection on the spiritual path and I don't just mean from subtle entities etc. There are so many things in life that we think of as 'normal' but in fact degrade consciousness entirely, whether it be certain toxic environments (McDonald's??! lol) or some violent TV program (which also have entities lingering to). Interesting hub, look forward to reading more of your words.

Hello Seeker! Thanks for stopping by, reading, voting up and commenting. I appreciate the kind words. :) I do try to NOT sensationalize on spiritual matters as that tends to detract from the overall message.

An excellent hub Dale - one of the best I've read on this subject. It's well rounded, not sensationalised and the information is genuinely valuble! Voted up!
