How to Protect Oneself From Psychic Attacks

How to Protect Oneself From Psychic Attacks


By an eHow Contributor
There are several ways to recognize when you are under psychic attack. If you suddenly feel drained of energy or unaccountably depressed, then there’s a good chance that you are under psychic attack. However, it is a good idea to visit a medical doctor first to rule out any medical problems, like anxiety or schizophrenia. There are several things you can do to protect yourself. Read on to find out.

Know When You Are Under Psychic Attack

1  Check your energy level. One of the common symptoms of psychic attacks is the feeling of being drained of energy.

2  Assess your emotional state. Do you feel fearful or anxious for no reason? Do you feel danger? These are also common signs of attack.

3  Take note of any headaches you may be having, as well as the frequency with which they occur.

4  Watch for other symptoms of attack. Other symptoms of psychic attacks include feelings of depression, suicidal thoughts, a cold or tense feeling in the stomach and more.

5  Notice how you feel when you leave the company of people you talk to. If you feel extremely fatigued when you depart, there is a good chance that you were just under attack.

6  Be aware that psychic attacks could come from one person or a group of people. If it is from a group of people you will need help from a professional healer. Visit the “International Association of Reiki Professionals” to find a Reiki energy healer (see Resources below).

Protect Oneself From Psychic Attacks

7  Say a prayer. Address your request for protection to the entity you believe in and believe that you have been heard.

8  Ask for protection from your spirit guides and angels. These light beings help to protect you from negativity.

9  Place a triple layer of cling film over your solar plexus, under your clothes. Your solar plexus is your most volatile area. Cling film helps to repel unwanted energies.

10  Place a protective gemstone on your solar plexus. Several gemstones are said to promote good vibrations, such as black tourmaline. This gemstone is believed to cause energies directed at you to bounce off. Other gemstones include agate, turquoise and jasper.

11  Use natural essences from flowers. The scent from the flowers is said to help promote positive emotions around you.

12  Free oneself from fear. When you are fearful you are more susceptible to psychic attacks. Try meditation, yoga or visualization exercises to help you balance and strengthen your mental and emotional states.

13  Read “Psychic Shield: The Personal Handbook of Psychic Protection” by Caitlin Matthews to learn more about how to protect yourself from psychic attacks.

Gemstones of the Zodiac

Gemstones of the Zodiac

Helpful and healing gemstones for every zodiac sign

Emily Trinkaus

Emily Trinkaus on the topics of zodiac, insight, astrology

Gemstones are more than just pretty ornaments. These natural, Earth-based beauties also have the power to heal, protect, relax and clarify. Certain gemstones are particularly beneficial for each zodiac sign. When thinking about which gem is appropriate for you, a friend or a loved one, consider not only Sun signs, but the Moon and Rising signs as well.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Diamond: Like Aries, a sign known for its strength and survival skills, the diamond is the hardest of the gems. The diamond carries masculine energy, evoking your inner warrior and helping you to pursue your goals and persevere in challenging times. Considered the stone of innocence and purity, this precious gem also assists you with attaining spiritual clarity and speaking your heart’s truth. The diamond, associated with wealth, can help you attract abundance in all areas of life.

Additional gemstones associated with Aries: Bloodstone, Jasper, Ruby, Carnelian, Garnet

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Amber: Amber is not actually a stone, but the petrified resin of trees that once grew in forests along the Baltic sea — appropriately earthy origins for nature-loving Taurus. Amber’s gold-orange color is known for grounding and stabilizing higher spiritual energies into the physical body. Its influence is simultaneously calming and energizing, enhancing patience, protection and balance. Amber is said to absorb negative energy, thereby promoting the body’s ability to heal itself.

Additional gemstones associated with Taurus: Rose Quartz, Turquoise, Blood Coral, Emerald, Sapphire

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Agate: Mentally active (and sometimes hyperactive) Gemini can benefit from the grounding and calming influence of this stone. By strengthening the body’s connection to the Earth, agates enhance courage and vitality while protecting from energy drains and stress. Considered a stone of harmony, the agate can inspire the Twins’ multiple personalities to come into a state of balance and integration. Carry or wear agate when you have to make an important decision — this stone will sharpen your sight, stimulate your intellect and dispel fears.

Additional gemstones associated with Gemini: Citrine, Chrysoprase, Pearl, Moonstone, White Sapphire

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Moonstone: This magical gemstone is, not surprisingly, associated with the Moon, Cancer’s planetary ruler. Moonstone is said to absorb the healing power of the Moon, and the most powerful time to wear it is during a Full Moon. Moonstone offers protection for Cancer’s sensitive nature while enhancing intuition, feminine energies and psychic abilities. Considered a stone of inner growth and spiritual perception, Moonstone is an excellent ally during meditation. Additionally, Moonstone brings success in both love and business.

Additional gemstones associated with Cancer: Pearl, Emerald, Ruby

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Tourmaline: Tourmaline is often associated with the heart, the part of the body ruled by Leo. This stone can help you open yourself to love, and it enhances compassion, happiness and serenity. Leo is a naturally creative zodiac sign, and tourmaline provides added inspiration — or can help jumpstart the process if you’re feeling blocked. Tourmaline strengthens your ability to manifest your goals, and it attracts abundance and prosperity as it makes others more receptive to your talents. Traditionally used as a meditation stone, tourmaline is also considered helpful for channeling.

Additional gemstones associated with Leo: Carnelian, Sardonyx, Onyx, Golden Topaz

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Blue Sapphire: Considered a sacred stone in Buddhism, the blue sapphire brings order and clarity to the mind, thereby increasing your ability to access spiritual wisdom. Since Virgo is prone to anxiety and worry — populating the mind with distracting or unproductive thoughts — this gemstone is particularly useful. The color blue is traditionally associated with the heavens, and Virgo benefits from this reminder of a higher perspective. Blue sapphire also increases mental flexibility, helping Virgos release hardened attitudes and open themselves to new possibilities.

Additional gemstones associated with Virgo: Jasper, Carnelian, Jade, Moss Agate

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Lapis Lazuli: Considered a stone of universal truth and friendship, lapis is said to foster harmony in relationships — always a priority for significant-other-oriented Libra. At the same time, Lapis supports expressing your authentic self and inner truth, which can sometimes be challenging for this peace-seeking sign. Highly valued for its spiritual properties, lapis helps you to access sacred knowledge, expand consciousness, communicate with your spirit guides, and purify your mind and soul.

Additional gemstones associated with Libra: Opal, Emerald, Rose Quartz, Peridot (Chrysolite)

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Aquamarine: The name of this beautiful blue gemstone refers to the ocean, and resonates with Scorpio’s watery nature. The element Water represents the emotional realm, and Scorpio’s waters run deep — so deep, in fact, that this sign sometimes gets lost in the depths. Aquamarine can soothe Scorpio’s intense emotions and counteract the forces of darkness, bringing a sense of tranquility, as well as clear insight, to underlying feelings. By aligning the physical and spiritual bodies, Aquamarine can help you attune to higher levels while remaining grounded.

Additional gemstones associated with Scorpio: Black Obsidian, Topaz, Beryl, Apache Tear, Coral

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Turquoise: Valued as a sacred stone in many spiritual traditions, turquoise helps truth-seeking Sagittarius attune to higher consciousness. Additionally, turquoise is considered a communication stone, enhancing a speaker’s eloquence, honesty and creativity — and offsetting the Sagittarian foot-in-mouth syndrome. Turquoise improves the mind by increasing intuition, sensitivity and positive thinking, resulting in a calmer mental state that leads to greater wisdom.

Additional gemstones associated with Sagittarius: Topaz, Sapphire, Amethyst, Ruby

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Ruby: By enhancing confidence, courage and joy, ruby can compensate for the Capricorn tendency toward melancholia and negativity. Ruby’s deep red color strengthens the heart and invites love for self, others and spirit. Capricorn has a well-deserved reputation as the hardest-working sign of the zodiac, and ruby is a great ally in restoring depleted energy reserves and promoting stamina, vitality and strength. Ruby is said to increase generosity as well as attract abundance and prosperity.

Additional gemstones associated with Capricorn: Black Onyx, Garnet, Agate

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Garnet: If Aquarians get stuck in the mental realm, garnet can help bring this sign back into the body by boosting sexual energy, passion, sensuality and general vitality. Friends and community are of great importance to Aquarius, and garnet both stabilizes relationships and enhances popularity. Garnet is said to promote success in business and improve higher education and professional prospects. On a spiritual level, garnet heightens clairvoyant abilities and is considered a powerful ally for accessing the wisdom of dreams.

Additional gemstones associated with Aquarius: Sugilite, Amethyst, Moss Agate, Opal

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Amethyst: Hyper-sensitive and energy-absorbent Pisces can greatly benefit from amethyst, which repels vibrations that the body does not need. Calming both the mind and nervous system, amethyst has been called “nature’s tranquilizer,” and is useful for releasing tension and soothing anxiety. Amethyst can also assist with healing from grief and releasing addictions, and supports general emotional stability. Considered an excellent meditation stone, amethyst enhances psychic abilities and spiritual awareness.

Additional gemstones associated with Pisces: Jade, Aquamarine, Bloodstone, Rock Crystal, Sapphire

Gemstone of the Day – Tourmaline

Gemstone of the Day – Tourmaline

Tourmaline is often referred to as the rainbow gemstone, due to the huge amout of colors that it is available in. This was certainly believed by the ancient Egyptians who believed that when Tourmaline traveled from its home in the earth’s core to the surface, it did so along a rainbow, which subsequently gifted the gemstone with all of the colors of the rainbow.

Tourmaline is the excellent channeling stone for communication with higher forces. Tourmaline helps to break up energy blockage, which we mentally experience as anxiety, stress or confusion. This stone clears higher frequencies, effectively as it forms a protective shield all over the body (Aura).

All tourmalines are said to enhance understanding, increase self-confidence and amplify psychic energies. They are told to neutralize negative energies, dispel fear and grief as well as aid in concentration and communication.

Tourmaline helps you to move beyond limited thinking, to an expanded sense of reality, and see past experiences in new ways. It teaches us that we are light beings in physical form, and helps us to experience the physical and spiritual worlds as one.

Associations:

Astrological Sign: Black, Green – Capricorn — Blue – Libra, Taurus

Chakra: Use the particular color of tourmaline that relates to that particular area

Element: Blue Water, Black-Earth, Green-Earth, Pink-Water, Red-Fire, Watermelon-Fire & Water

Planet: Mars, Venus

Daily Feng Shui News for Dec. 16th – ‘Blue Topaz’

One of the birthstones associated with the month of December is blue topaz, a stone that has long been linked with aiding physical health. It’s believed that wearing this stone will help to steady and regulate the action of the heart while also stabilizing the body’s glandular systems. It has even been known to help treat tonsillitis, whooping cough and mumps. Just remember that if you give this stone to someone and tell them to ‘wear it in good health,’ the odds are pretty high they will.

Let’s Talk Witch – Gem And Stones

From ancient times to civilized times precious and semi-precious stones have always held our fascination. Their beauty is natural and everlasting. Natural Magickians have recognized this beauty and fascination and have used stones in their magick for centuries. They give an extra push of energy onto your desired goal.

Stones are used for many purposes including Meditation, Divination, Healing, magickal oil blends or even crushed in some incense recipes. All gems,stones, crystals hold their own energies or “vibrations”. They respond instantly to the expressed intent of your will. Gem properties are easy for a beginner to master and help build both self confidence and self esteem. There are no rules that you must follow and don’t let anyone tell you that there is! It is a personal journey within yourself and you can learn to use stones in just the right way for you.

You can carry them, burn them, add them to your favorite magickal oil blend, place them around the home, in the car, at the office , anywhere you feel the energies are wanted. We ourselves are still learning all about the wonderous ways of gems and stones. A journey that we hope will never end! Stones predate humans by centuries and can show us our true selves because of that fact. They are symbols for forces far beyond words or cold-hard facts. They are there to show us what is already there within and around ourselves.

There are various uses for the beautiful stones. It is up to you how they are used. This is a mystical journey, no magick is needed other than that of your possession of whichever stone you choose. Get to know each stones properties, learn how these stones can enrich both your personal and spiritual life in unlimited wondrous ways.

CHOOSING YOUR GEMSTONE

One of the most often asked questions about gemstone magick is:
“How do I choose my stone/gem/crystal?”

And the most common answer is:
“Don’t worry. They choose you”

As stated before, stones and gems have their own particular vibration and energy. When you are really serious about finding your stone you will understand this. If you have a chance to plunge your hand into a large barrel of different stones, you will know which ones just “feel” right. Some people experience a feeling of heat when holding a certain stone, others say they feel happy or safe when holding a certain stone. Sometimes its: “It just caught my eye and no matter what I did I couldn’t get it out of my mind.” That’s what is meant by a stone finding you.

A good start in finding the right stone is if you have a goal in mind for the stone. Since there are such a great number of stones available this helps limit your choices. Know the properties of each stone and you will find the one you are looking for; the right shade and shape will become important to you too.

If there is no goal in mind, you just want or need a “special little stone”, see which one jumps out at you, or pass your hand over several stones and feel the energy that comes to you. Try meditating for the right one. Again, knowing the properties of stones may help you in this. The different shapes of the stones will be an important factor in choosing your stones.

ROUND

Round shaped gems and stones are a symbol of magick and its workings. The means for the opening of psychic awareness and spirituality. Receptive to all powers. Used in all attraction wishes such as love, money and spirituality.

SQUARE

Square shaped stones are masculine in nature and generally considered to be used for building or creating something new or altering something old. A form of stability and endurance.

TRIANGULAR

Triangles are a sign of the three points of humankind; the mind, body and spirit. Able to discern between the four elements. Used primarily for repelling and neutralizing negativity, and for gathering and releasing of all the energies for your intended desire.

PEAR

Pear shapes are a combination of both the round and triangle. Used primarily in associations with the element of Water, it is both receptive and projective. A great shape for balancing of emotions or any wish dealing with psychism or Faerie Magick.

ROD

Rod shaped or Wand shaped are a sign of masculinity. Also commonly referred to as “phallic”. Projective energies, used primarily for a wish for someone, for the intent to be projected towards another.
