     Do you need metaphysical protection? Why? Against what? How much?…

     Just like in regular life, how much protection you need is largely shaped by the nature of the world around you. In the regular world, if you chose to visit more edgy places, you may need increased regular protection ( a police whistle; martial arts skills; a big dog ; a bigger boyfriend…).

     Also in regular life, if you’re going edgy places and acting like you’re expecting to be mugged or acting like you expect people to be unfriendly, you’re increasing the odds that what you’re calling to will likely happen.

     This is partly body language/ attitude/etc but partially energetic.

     In the metaphysical world, there are also good neighborhoods and bad ones; and good folks and not-so-good ones.

     If you tend to hang in the edgier parts of Mystery, your risk is greater. Likewise, if you’re putting out energy that the Universe is a contantly dangerous place or that “things” are out to get you, you do tend to shape reality so it’s more likely such things will happen.

     The Law of Attraction says that what we focus on, we tend to get. Look for the storm clouds, you tend to get wet. Look for the silver lining, you tend to get sunnier weather…

     From my observations, that tends to be true. I have friends who are cock-eyed optimists and cranky pessimists and everything in between. When I started paying attention, I noticed that the optimists did seem to have a higher incidence of positive serendipity and handled such temporary dips as befell with style and panache. The pessimists actually had more “freak” accidents and pratfalls. Statisically, it looked like personal expectations had a causative effect…

     Interesting, that.

     Now there are some folks who’ll say this means that everything in your life (warts, true love, headcheese, lottery wins) is there because you chose it and drew it there.

     I don’t go that far. But I do think your expectations and intentions about the world can stack the deck for or against you, and I’d rather tip the odds in my favor….

     Now, how does that lead into metaphysical protection? Just this- that your intention can shape the kind of world you find yourself in, and therefore , how much protection you need..

     (Here she goes with intention again!…)

     I don’t believe that, if you believe it’s “an always Friendly Universe!…” , you’ll never run into trouble.

     I do believe that, if you believe it’s a mostly friendly Universe, but there’s sometimes a spot of trouble (so you take prudent precautions), you’ll draw less predators and bullies, attract less problems and challenges, and have a smoother ride overall on the highway of life.

     And I do believe that, if you go looking for trouble, you’re more likely to find it…

     So before setting up psychic alarms, energetic shields, totemic watchdogs, or metaphysical defense sytems, I’d say the first step is to set a good intent:

  • Intend that you’ll put out good energy and see good energy returned;
  • Intend that the places you go and the folks you approach will be positive, friendly, supportive and safe for you;
  • Intend that you’ll make wise choices that give you great results;
  • Intend that you’ll be prepared for problems but not go looking for them;
  • Intend that divine protection is there for you when you ask;
  • Intend that you are given what you need to walk humbly and safely in the Mystery:…

     You get the idea…

     After your intention’s set, you can add other protections as and if you need it.

     But a good intention of protection is a great foundation to build on.

     There’ll be more posts on protection in the future.

     In metaphysical or spiritual circles, there are many different opinions about the need for metaphysical protection….

  • Do you need metaphysical protection?
  • If so, when do you need it?
  • How much?
  • What kind?
  • How do you protect yourself and those you care for?

     Opinions on the subject vary widely, tending to fall along a range of beliefs about the need for protection.

     Some people believe that “the Universe is a friendly place” and that, as long as you keep your thoughts and energy positive, you will never draw anything negative to you.

     These folks tend towards minimal protective activity, believing that a  positive focus manifests a positive world around them.

     Some people believe that the magickal world is a war-zone, full of negative energies and entitities that’ll as soon do you harm as look at you.

     These folks tend to ward, pray or invoke at every contact with the non-physical world, regardless of degree.

     I tend to fall in the middle somewhere. I see the magickal world as having good neighborhoods and bad, kind of like the material world; and like the material world, the degree of protection needed varies with the neighborhoods I visit and the activities I engage in there.

     For instance:

  • Church with emotionally healthy congregation- not so much protection needed;
  • House where someone has died violently- may need more protective activity.
  • Showing someone how to use accupressure to ease a sinus headache- minimal protection needed.
  • Reading for someone in the process of resolving PSTD ( post-traumatic stress disorder) – more protection needed.

     Protection may not only be needed against evil beings or energetic attacks. Psychic protection can also be useful to prevent being overwhelmed by the energy of people who are in crisis or places that are off-kilter. In such cases, no harm may be intended by those people, but you can battered or thrown by the experience anyway.

     Protective practices can be like wearing a metaphysical hard-hat; helping to keep your head straight and safe  so you can deal with what’s happening.

     How much psychic protection do you need?…

     To a certain extent, your beliefs can shape the world around you and, therefore, what kind and how much protection you need, as well as when you need it. I’d encourage you to learn to listen to your wisdom inside and learn to trust it’s basic impressions on when you need psychic protection(or, for that matter, regular protection) and how much you need.

  • Don’t feel right about that guy in the corner? Have someone walk you to your car.
  • Feel prickly and nervous with no obvious cause? A prayer might be in order.
  • Feel safe using a pendulum to answer questions at a friend’s place? You probably don’t need further protection there.
  • Feel uneasy about reading for someone? You might want to increase your energy shields, pray or contact your guardian spirits. Or you might not want to read at all- this might be the wrong time, the wrong place or the wrong person to read for.

     In future posts, you’ll see a number of ways of protecting yourself from a metaphysical standpoint. Use what speaks to you when you feel you need it. Don’t feel you need to trot out every bell and whistle because your friend does- your needs might be quite different than hers.

     Listen to your inner wisdom. It was put there for a reason…

     More posts on protection in the future.

For dealing with negative energies, these might
prove useful :
Apache Tear,
Black Tourmaline,
Hematite ,
Smokey Quartz.
 Blue and Black Kyanite.
All of these  will absorb negative energies but my
personal favorite is Amber combined with Jet. In
this configuration they will not only absorb the
negative energy but will also transform it into
