Casting Your Magic Shield
One of the most useful tools in defensive magic is your shield. This isn’t a specific spell per se, but it is a very powerful mental tool that requires no other supplies except your own will and your imagination. Shields are very effective against negative people, energy vampires, and any other negative influences that you want to protect yourself from.
Your shield may take some practice to conjure, but it will get stronger and stronger every time you do it, so don’t give up.
Here is the technique for conjuring your personal protective magic shield:
Find a quiet spot where you won’t be disturbed.
Begin by imagining that there is a flow of energy that is connecting you to both the heavens and the earth. Picture it as a column that runs through you straight up and down. You are connected to the earth, and to the skies above. See it descend from the sky, and pass through you down to the earth.
As you inhale, feel the power from above and below flow into you. As you exhale, feel that energy move throughout your body, infusing every cell and fiber of your body with power.
Make a fist with your left hand and place it over your heart. Cover it with your right hand, and apply pressure.
As you inhale again, feel the power gather around your heart. Direct all the energy in your body straight to your heart.
See a small, gray sphere gather at your heart. Release the pressure on your chest and feel the sphere grow larger, expanding through your skin and encompassing your entire body. Push the sphere out about a foot or two from your body. This is your shield.
Imagine that its surface is impenetrable, and that no dark or bad forces will be allowed in. You are safe and protected. You know your shield is there for you.
The effects of the shield will generally wear off in a few hours. You may repeat the ritual again to bring your shield back. But be careful about using your shield too much. Yes, it will protect you from attack. But because it works against everyone, it will cut you off even from the people who mean you no harm at all. Use your shield only when you really feel that you need it.
