Psychic Protection or Shielding from Negative Energy

 What is protection or shielding?

 Protection which is often called shielding, is a type of meditation/ visualization used to protect oneself from negative energy. . It’s one of those building blocks that one needs to create a strong foundation for further spiritual study and exploration. In a nutshell, protection or shielding is creating a protective barrier around oneself, another, place or a material object.

 When wouldyou use Psychic Protection or Shielding

 Psychic protection should be used during any type of spiritual work like divination, healing or ritual. Shielding can be done any time you feel the need for psychic protection whether you are doing anything spiritual or mundane. For example… if you were going in for surgery or flying on a plane, shielding is a good idea. If you were going in for a job interview or any stressful situation, you can shield yourself. If you find yourself picking up on the energy of others, you can protect yourself from it.

 How do you shield yourself from negative energy?

 Shielding is very easy. But first you need to ground and center (directions are on my blog)

  1.  Breathe in deeply through the nose while envisioning that you are drawing in god/ goddess/ guardian angels/ universal energy or whatever…. Into your physical being.
  2. Now exhale deeply through the mouth envisioning this breathe coming out of you as a brilliant white light with shimmers of rainbow colors.
  3. In your minds eye, see this light forming a bubble around you. This bubble is filled with protective energy from those spiritual beings that you requested help from. Don’t forget to thank them.
  4. You can program this bubble to shield differently.
  • You can have it turn reflective like a mirror and reflect anything that you don’t want.
  • My favorite shield is to use the white light with rainbow colors (like a moonstone) and have it transmute or change any negative energy to positive energy that is at my disposal. You see, energy is neither good or bad. It just IS. So if you feeling someone is sending negative energy to you, rather than reflect it and waste free energy, change it to positive energy. Program the shield to make that energy attract love, money, healing and so on.

 Note: The most important thing about a psychic protection or shield is to have FAITH! You have to know within every fiber of your being that you are divinely protected and that no harm can come to you.

How to consecrate your tarot deck

Whether you have purchased a new tarot deck or you have one that you have been using, you should consecrate and cleanse/ purify the deck . The purification ritual is on another post.

What is consecration? 

To consecrate the tarot deck means “to make it holy”. In other words, you are taking your tarot cards and transforming them from pieces of card stock into a sacred tool for communication with the divine. You can repeat it as needed if they have lain dormant for a time or if you feel that your readings are not as clear as they should be. The act of consecrating your deck isn’t just about honoring and preparing the deck, it’s about you making a spiritual connection with the tarot cards.

This may sound a bit strange. You do not have to be psychic to read tarot cards. It’s a great tool for those who feel that they are not psychic enough but desire spiritual guidance and perhaps wish to guide others. Tarot cards have more symbolism than they appear. They make have a person, animal and/or objects on them. They have a numerological, astrological and seasonal meaning. Tarot cards have many colors and symbols that give meaning. A tarot card is mainly male or female in it’s energy. The people may face right or left. They may be royalty or peasant. They may be greatly adorned, wearing tattered rags or naked. All of that means something to a tarot reader. When you combine all the cards in a reading, they tell a story. But more than that, they can show a pattern or trend. You consecrate your tarot deck to create a bond with you. You do it to program your brain to accept that each color, number, symbol, suit and so on, speaks volumes to you. Your tarot deck in a tool with which spirit is able to communicate with you for guidance for yourself or others. You are the translator. Spirit can work through tarot symbols as a form of communication.

Working with tarot on a regular basis usually causes one to become psychic as you are opening the doors to spirit communication. Yet… another post for you to read.

Consecrating a tarot deck

I like to use sage to consecrate a tarot deck. It purifies the deck at the same time. Sage is an herb sacred to the Native Americans believed to remove negative energy. If you don’t like the aroma of burning sage, then you can use incense. I highly recommend my natural incense sticks. Frankincense and myrrh is traditional for consecration. If you don’t like aromas, you can choose a plain white candle as a substitute. In smudging, it is the smoke from the sage or incense that is desired, not some much the smell. If you use a candle, it will be the warm light of the candle that you would focus upon. Use what works best for your needs.

1. Light your sage or incense and use the smoke to purify yourself and then the area where you wish to consecrate your deck include the store box, pouch or wrapping.

2. Take your tarot deck and hold it face up in the hand that you do not right with. This is your receptive hand.

3. Hold the deck over the smoking sage or incense or the candle light (taking great care not to burn your self).

4. Ask your guardians angels or guides to protect you and you cards from anything but the highest of energy forms.

5. Recite:

Paper and ink let secrets unfold,

Ancestors and guardians message be told. May wisdom guide my every word

So sacred insight may be heard

By ears open and ready to receive

Divine guidance to believe.

6. As each card faces you, take a moment to contemplate it. Feel its energy. And envision your own going into the spaces between the molecules that make up the card.

7. Lay the card face down when you have done that… and move to the next card.

8. Repeat until you have touched each and every card.

9. Pick up the whole deck with your receptive hand and hold it over the smoke.

10. Ask whatever deity you choose to bless and consecrate this deck so that you may use it only for the greater good.  Don’t forget to thank them when you have finished.

You can now use your newly consecrated deck. After that, you should store them in a pouch, box or piece of natural fabric like cotton or silk. Some say to use black for protection. Others say white for purification. Do what feels best for you.

Hint: I offer another post to program and energize a crystal to store with your tarot cards for protection, purification and to empower your cards further.


Home Purification

A home purification should be done if you are moving into a new home. It doesn’t matter whether you are buying or renting, the idea is to remove any residual or negative energy left behind by the previous family. If you are renting, check to make sure it is ok with your landlord if sage is acceptable.

 You can also do a home purification if you believe your home has spirit activity (haunted). I have found that most times, a haunting is explainable with a little research (faulty wiring, mice in the walls or attic etc..). If in doubt, do a home purification. It certainly won’t do any harm. It will also clear away negativity that does gather in any home.

 If possible… Before you move  anything into your new home… place 8 pennies in your hand. Ask a blessing over them that they bring prosperity into the new home. While standing on the outside of the front door, toss them across the threshold and into the home. This symbolizes the infinite flow of wealth into your new home. This especially important if you have purchased a foreclosure or a home that had financial difficulties. Leave them lay where they fell until you have moved everything into the home. Gather them up and place them in a nice container. Place them in the area where you will be paying your bills. This is to keep the flow of abundance coming into to not just meet your present bills… but to create financial stability in your life.

 Supplies:

Sea salt, Sage smudge bundle, lighter, heat proof container to hold the sage

1.  Clean the house.

2.  Move the salt into the house. Salt brings good luck to the house .

3.  Now that the house is clean, it’s time to cleanse. Light the smudge stick and begin at the front door. Move around the house in a clockwise motion holding the smudge in front of you.

4.  When you reach a window circle the window counterclockwise asking that anyone or anything be barred from entering. Move the smudge over the window panes to make smoke “bars” across the window.

5.  When you reach an outside door, ask that only those with good intentions be allowed to enter and that any negativity is left outside. Don’t bar the door, but circle it counterclockwise with the smudge. This includes spirits.

6.  Throw a pinch of salt into dark corners or into rooms that you feel need more attention. Salt will help to remove negative energy.

7.  When you enter a room, travel around the perimeter making sure the smoke enters each corner.

8.  If you have an attic or storage space, bar the entrance as you did to the windows, asking that no one be allowed to enter. Spirits included.

9.  End your house cleansing at the front door where you started. Announce that the cleansing is complete and thank your angels for their participation.

10.  It’s customary to conclude a house blessing with a great feast, so bring out the food and drink

 If you are having trouble with spirit activity, you can recite the following incantation in every room of the house (including basement, attic, garage etc….):

 God/ess Bless this home

every nail and board and stone

 clear away energies that harm

Keep them away with this charm

Cleanse and purify this place

Help us create a sacred space

Bestow your loving blessings good

That this home be safe as it should

So Mote it be!
