 Psychic Protection

by Bonnie Moss (c)

Ever wonder why sometimes you feel drained of your energy under certain circumstances 
such as: being a sounding board for someone, after doing a difficult reading using whatever 
tool of divination, after conducting a healing session or as innocent as being pushed in a crowd?

Sometimes being aware of your psychic abilities open channels that have been dormant, this  
invites all  forms of unwanted energies unseen by the human eye. It is easy to get carried away 
and forget the possible  dangers you are exposed to when doing psychic work.  However, this 
possibility should not discourage anyone from developing their psychic abilities. It is a matter of 
preparation before and after doing any psychic work .Simple words like grounding, preparation 
and protection can do wonders to shield you.

Why the need for psychic protection when you are  doing something good for others with a clear 
conscience and the best intentions? You know you are not doing any harm, nor trigger a karmic 
reaction- yet, why? 

The path to psychic development and spirituality opens  up a whole new world. You are tapping 
into the unknown,unknown and different energies and cosmic influence. This process opens up 
your subtle bodies in a way that you have never done before. You become aware of  new energies, 
open your aura to receive more influences, and this combination spells power and could be
unnerving at times.

When you start to recognize these different energies and fully open your chakras, you will probably 
notice a great change in you. You get that feeling of  positivity , exude an aura of confidence, even 
have that glow  in your face.This may take sometime  to show. It could serve as a measure of
your progress.


Energy field that is invisible to the human eye is all around us. Science has proven this. The best
you can do is to be aware of these external forces  in the environment that is present yet invisible. 
There are simple steps to protect your energy from being absorbed by another, which could result 
in physical, emotional or mental imbalance.Arenít there times when you feel drained after listening 
to the tales of woe of another? What do you do when you start to feel  uncomfortable? Sometimes 
you wonder how did you get sucked into something you donít care about? 

What about those sudden grips of anxiety? These are  samples of intrusion into your energy field. 
Some refer to these fields as Auric field, the Aura .Continued 
exposure is not healthy,it is draining, and yet, simple enough to deal with.


Exercise, fresh air, meditation, good nutrition  and personal hygiene.This sets you off to 
a good start. For those who are engaged in healing, counselling and like professions, it is 
easy to get entangled in clientsí problems. Protection is important to maintain positive emotional 
objectivity. Protect yourself, cleanse the energy field before and after a session.
