These days spiritual people rarely retire from society and spend their time meditating in remote mountains. Today’s spiritual people often live in cities, surrounded by people, active in society, putting themselves ‘out there’ to promote awareness and help people understand the ‘feelings’ they might not understand. The same goes for anyone openly involved in and promoting alternative health.

This also means we are often under attack from those who find alternative health and spirituality bad or offensive or even dangerous. And thoughts and speech are very real, they are made up of energy and they affect the person they are targeted at, not just on an emotional level, but can also cause problems on a physical level in the long term. People who actively speaks up about these issues, especially those who take the step ‘out of the spiritual closet’ and openly discuss these things with people who aren’t always positive about it, are often faced with extremely harsh comments, negative speech and even accusations, name calling and ridicule. Sometimes when people get more sensitive, the whirlwind of energies around them can become very overwhelming, you feel, see and hear things that all demand your attentions, and it can be very tiring.
Luckily we have the tools for protecting ourselves from such intentional or unintentional attacks! I can’t count the times I’ve used the techniques I learned from the MCKS Psychic Self Defense workshop and book to keep myself protected from negativity, intentional or, more often, unintentional. There are other psychic self defines methods and books too, but these are the ones I have found most useful. Working in a restaurant/bar for several summers I’ve been very grateful for being able to protect myself from the emotional outbursts that may happen there. And even when nothing seriously unpleasant happened, I felt less tired, less annoyed and found it easier to leave work behind when I went home!
When talking to friends and strangers about Pranic Healing, about spirituality, I’m also incredibly grateful to have the tools to keep me calm and happy so that I can stay as clear minded and loving as possible in what I say. Knowing what my thoughts and what I say can do to other people, both positive and negative, I try my hardest to make sure I keep the positives outweighing the negatives. Keeping myself shielded from external unnecessary and harmful thoughts and feelings helps me keep my cool more effectively and gives me more time to focus on dealing with my own character building. This does not mean I’m oblivious to what’s going on around me. The best way I can describe the feeling is like watching a favourite film you’ve seen several times – you still get slightly emotionally engaged with the film, you feel the ups and downs of the characters, but the ‘bad’ things don’t drag you down, you just sort of observe yourself feeling these things. This is the effects I feel when wearing energy shields or other forms of energy protection.
And these are not complicated things we can do, they start from something as simple as discreetly crossing your arms and/or legs, which closes off your aura and protects you from the thought forms coming from other people or the surroundings. Other techniques require basic knowledge of Pranic Healing, and are incredibly effective in protecting us from simple things like the tiredness and tension of fellow travellers during the morning commute to defending us against very powerful thought forms that affect whole countries and societies.
Another simple thing to do is just projecting love and kindness towards anyone who is being negative towards you, whether it be as an intentional attack, or just their own emotions spilling over on you. This helps neutralise the negative emotions and helps defuse the situation easier. NOTE: this of course while still maintaining your own physical safety, walking away from dangerous situations, getting help when needed etc. This is very important.
