Basic Psychic Shielding

Grounding, Shielding, and Clearing are essential practices for good psychic hygiene. The more sensitive among us will find they feel their best when doing all of these on a regular basis. When starting out it is best to do grounding and shielding daily to establish them properly. Then experiment if you like to find out how often you need to ground and shield to feel your best. Personally I do them at least once per day and usually more. I feel best if I do them before doing energy work (Reiki, MAP, meditation, after energy work, and before sleeping. Sometimes I am simply too agitated to sleep until I shield my home as well as myself.

At it’s most basic shielding is simply wrapping your aura, the energy field that surrounds and encompasses your body, in a coating of energy with the intention of repelling anything harmful. One can visualize their aura coated in one color of light such as gold or a scintillating rainbow swirl. One can image a hexagonal gold mesh, white light, or a layer of flame. It is up to each person to choose what suits them best at that time. Sometimes I visualize being surrounded by an electric field that neutralizes harmful energy with an electric crackling noise like a bug zapper. Always set your shield to be permeable to positive energies so love and healing can come and go. If you are attuned to Reiki charge your shield with it and draw (mentally or physically) symbols on it. I particularly like using Raku because this symbol is used to separating people’s energy and earthing negativity (aka sending it to the earth for energy composting). Now while traditional Reiki masters say people can’t use the symbols until Reiki II and III I could after Reiki I. Some are horrified or offended for me to even suggest it to others. Well renegade that I am I say go ahead and try them if you like if you are are Reiki I. Try drawing CKR, SHK & Raku on your shield front, back, right, left, above, below and in the center on yourself, your car, your place of work, your home, and the property it is on then see how it makes the atmosphere change for the better. You need not do this in person, simply visualize drawing the symbols from a distance.

In general a person’s aura is no wider than the fullest reach of their arms. You might find yours extends too far away, too close, lopsided, weak in certain areas, or has holes. You can correct this by visualizing it being hole and perfectly egg shaped. Mentally or physically reach out and smooth your aura’s boundary smoothing any lumps out and filling in weak or holey areas. Feel free to ask your spirit guides and allies for help as well if only for the sake of establishing a working relationship with them so it will be easier to work with them on very serious issues. Imagine using blobs of colored energy to fill in the holes and weak areas or use Reiki if attuned. As always experiment until you find which techniques suit you and your issues the best.

Have fun and be silly. Use a phrase from a song you like that relates to what you are visualizing, make up a rhyme or borrow a scene from a sci-fi movie to inspire your shield effectively resisting even the most dreadful of energies. While the effects of shielding are serious one need not be solemn for them to work.

The Voices In My Head Tell Me to Drink Water

Posted on August 8, 2007. Filed under: Aura, Chakra, Channeling, Empathy, Healing, Psychic Hygiene |

In both complimentary and conventional medicine practitioners encourages everyone to drink plenty of water. One bodyworker I have worked with always insists on her clients drinking water with a bit of lemon juice in it after a session. I who get few direction messages from my guides have received many a message to lay off soda pop and hit the water pitcher. I procrastinated, made excuses, and tried to compromise by reducing consumption to one cup a day. OK I would say one cup per day yet usually have two. Or more and say to myself it was OK because the rest of the time I only had one! Such a stupid thing to lie about even to myself.

Well in the end I gave it up. No soda for months. I started to detox with symptoms similar to the early stages of a sinus infection. Even with the detox my number of headaches greatly decreased both in frequency and intensity. After about two weeks the detox let up. Yay. Then a stressful event occurred and I decided to just have a little soda. Just one 2 liter bottle couldn’t hurt, right? BIG mistake. BIG BIG mistake. I got a migraine. My nerve endings felt fried extra crispy and my mood and manner were not kind, gentle and considerate. My sinuses plugged up worse than during the detox. My anxiety level rose several degrees to the verge of panic.

My other symptoms brings me to why I am posting about my little addiction here. My third eye started aching physically, my aura felt more permeable than usual, and empathically I felt raw and exposed. This made me wonder if others had noticed caffeine acting upon their psychic senses so I googled caffeine +psychic to find the very interesting channeling I will quote from below. Please read the entire article at the link since I can only quote a few paragraphs without permission.

Caffeine, the drug of choice

by Norma Gentile

Caffeine has the ability to open the 6th chakra, also known as the 3rd eye. It works on the innermost portion of the chakra, that which we would see as the core. Now remember that each sees and understands these things in a different manner, and each understanding adds to the greater whole of understanding.


The 6th chakra contains a number of interesting structures, which at this point in your evolution you typically keep closed. Ingesting larger amounts of caffeine causes the grids on these structures to decay. This allows the influx of energies into areas of your psyche that are private, and not meant to be shared. As a result there is a sense of being attacked by energies with a few words from a stranger, or from even the atmosphere or environment itself.

Your sense of privacy is heightened, and yet it is unattainable. Your ability to ‘read’ other’s is increased, but their pain, anger and other experiences seem to flood into your psychic mind, and lodge deeply in this core area of your 6th chakra. You become a channel for the world. Another vantage point is to note that the energies of other’s truly aren’t entering your mind. Rather, the shared experiences that exist in higher dimensions that link you with all others are being exposed. The grids on the core of the 6th chakra serve as a covering to multi-dimensional portals. When the grids are dissolved, as caffeine may do, the information from other lifetimes and probabilities can be accessed.

As a result, any energy to which you are exposed will trigger similar energies from all lifetimes, from all dimensions, from all probabilities to come into your awareness. No wonder caffeinated people tend to over-react! Since you as a race tend to notice what you call negative emotions much more than positive ones, you are apt to see these first.
