Psychics Need Special Protection

All of the following protective techniques will work for non-psychics too, if necessary.

1. Overload

As psychics, we can open ourselves up too much to the input from outside ourselves, and become overloaded. In my case this tended to make me a bit manic, speedy without benefit of drugs. I hate that sensation, so had good reason for learning how to stay balanced. And I have had many good teachers over the years.

One of the best ways is to learn Reiki (and choose your Reiki Master wisely: someone who respects and carries on the old-school way of teaching as passed down over the generations). If you are psychic, becoming a Reiki channel has the side-effect of refining and balancing the material coming through, and steadying the rate at which this happens, so that you don't get overwhelmed. Having Reiki treatments could help too, but not in such a constant, ongoing way.

But not everyone is a Reiki channel, and not everyone needs to be. There are other things you can do. I do them too, because – as I so often tell people – I'm a great believer in doing everything that might work.

One of the most important things, paradoxical as it may seem, is to take good care of your physical self. We psychics, mystics, magical workers and sensitives may get so focused on the other-worldly side of things, we forget that our bodies are truly our temples – houses for the spirit – and unless we keep them working efficiently the spirit can suffer.

We need to do all the sensible things we are taught about diet, exercise, water, sleep, fresh air and sunshine. Don't neglect the obvious! [Pauses for a moment to speak severely to self concerning sleep and exercise.] 

There's more, not so well-known. You probably do know that the pineal gland is the seat of the so-called 'third eye', an avenue for psychic awareness. Did you also know there are foods you can eat to keep it healthy? I won't go into all that here. Just Google 'food for pineal gland' and you'll find the information.

Cannabis (marijuana) activates the pineal gland and therefore the psychic abilities. (This might not be news to you either.) We who are already psychic may not need or want any extra activation! Moderation might be wise. But what if you need it for medical reasons (which is now beginning to be accepted)? I don't know, really. Dope isn't my thing, any more than speed. In my distant youth, when I tried it, I either had bad trips or no trips, so I couldn't see any reason to continue using it – especially as it was illegal into the bargain. But I would suggest, be aware that you may open yourself to a flood of input that's hard to handle – and then weigh it all up and do what you need to. 

Obviously, in such a case be even more rigorous about your physical well-being. Also, try meditation. Yes, meditation opens you up to psychic realities too, so you might think it would make matters worse. But it also slows the brain waves, changing their frequency, and I believe it would help settle things down to a manageable level.

2. Psychic Attack

Deflection

As you'll be aware, most psychic attack is unintentional. Few people understand the real influence of their negative thoughts. You can probably clear that without much trouble. Put up a mirror in front of you, facing outwards to deflect the energy – an etheric mirror, that is. Imagine it in your mind's eye, or if you have trouble visualising, as many do, just intend it firmly and know that it is so.

Avoidance 

Some psychic invasion is perfectly accidental, not really an attack at all – as when auras brush against each other in the supermarket for instance, and you pick up something yucky from someone else. So shrink your aura before going into crowded places! Bring it in close around your body like a second skin. This you can do with willpower and imagination. See or feel it shrink into place around you, or just know that it is so.

Shielding

If you are psychic, and particularly if you work in that capacity for the Universe, you may be subject to attack for that very reason. It may just come with the territory, as in being at the effect of your clients' ‘stuff'; or it may be more sinister, as when dark forces wish to stop you. 

When I was working as a reader on the psychic lines some years back, I found that telephone lines are very good conductors of energy. I was sometimes adversely affected by the client's mood, in a way I don't experience face-to-face. If they were sceptical, I went into self-doubt; if they were sitting on anger, I would feel paralysed; and so on. I was able to overcome this and do the reading anyway, but it took effort. So I finally had the wit to pay attention to where their energy was getting in, and found it was through my solar plexus. (I have since made many enquiries. Other aware people confirm that that's where it is for them too.)

Oh good, so all I had to do was shield my solar plexus! I did it by designing in my mind a shield that covered the area. That is, the area just below the bottom of the sternum (breastbone) between the heart and the belly – the diaphragm, in fact. Really it is the solar plexus chakra you are shielding, but it's not necessary to be so specific. You can choose what shape, colour and material the shield will be, and any protective symbols you want on it. It will be an etheric shield, created with visualisation and intention. 

What if you're one of the people who can't visualise? Having designed your shield in your mind, you could draw it. Or it will also work to hold the idea of your shield in mind, and accompany that with strong intention. Once it’s in place, you don’t need to keep thinking of it.

It's also possible to use a physical shield, in the form of a pendant that hangs in the right place. Anything protective will do, such as a suitable crystal. Again, it's easy to look up online which crystals are protective, and take your pick. Or you could use a pendant of some other protective material; or of any material, bearing a symbol that you understand as protective. 

If it's an etheric shield, you will need to intentionally strengthen or even recreate it from time to time. (Use your intuition as to how often this should be – and it may vary.) If it's a physical shield, you'll need to cleanse and recharge it. 

Crystals can be rinsed under a tap, or they can be left out in sunlight or the light of a full moon. For any other material, hold it on the palm of one hand, and with the other make three concentric circles over it, clockwise if you are in the Southern Hemisphere, anti-clockwise in the Northern, saying, 'I exorcise thee, creature of earth' (or 'creature of air' for a feather, or 'creature of water' for a shell). Intend and see (or just know that it's so) yucky yellow energy leaving the object and dissipating harmlessly in the earth. Then make three concentric circles in the other direction, saying, 'I charge and consecrate thee to my use as psychic protection'. Intend and see (or know) that whitish-blue light from the Universe (or form your heart, if you like that better) is flowing down your arm into the pendant, filling it and charging it.

The other great benefit of shielding the solar plexus chakra is that it is then safe to keep your heart chakra wide open, so as to work in the energy of Unconditional Love. Again, visualise or know, and strongly intend. FEEL it open wide, as your chest expands accordingly.

Shining your light

Love is truly the strongest thing there is. It is not necessarily soft and sweet, though it can be. It is definitely not wishy-washy! It can be difficult to summon up love for someone or something that is attacking you. One way to deal with this is to imagine sending them the most intense white light, which you privately identify as the energy of Unconditional Love – but, having made that identification and intended it to be so, there is no need to dwell on it. You can shine the light so hard, from your third eye, your heart or your crown, that it dissipates the negative energy harmlessly into the earth.

Safety in numbers

In the case of a specific attack, it's helpful to find people (or angels) who are on your side, and enlist their help – whether to surround you with protection or shine so much light that the darkness cannot hold against it. You can meet in person to do this, or you can arrange to do it separately at a specific time when you all join in. Or you can do it whenever suits you individually, in the knowledge that others too will be playing their part and you can intend the link-up regardless of linear time.

I’ve tried to cover this thoroughly. If you have any further questions, please ask in the comments. Also, if you have other suggestions or methods of your own you care to share, please do!

Ermyntrude on Writing Poetry

My guide, Ermyntrude, is of the angelic realm. She gave me that name to use for her when she perceived I would be happier with a female energy and that I had an old fancy for that name, for its quirkiness and its music. (She gave it that particular spelling, too, with the 'y', which I think is unique.)

I asked her today, 'How can I make my poetry move the world?' 

She told me to become a bigger vessel, a deeper well, to take in everything I experience of the world – without taking it personally, and without judgment. 'Then,' she said, 'let it overflow and pour out of you,'

She also told me to keep my purity strong. I don't think of myself as a particularly pure person, on the personality level, but she explained that she was talking about my God-self: that light within, that core. 

She said the well she was talking about is not really me; rather, I own the well. She said that I should infuse with my light all the stuff I will be putting into it. (Stuff that I'll encounter, which – as outlined above – I need to accept rather than resist.)

Now, there's an answer to ponder! I suspect it might apply to all the creative arts.

The New Love in My Life

The moon goddess Selene, whom my new cat is named after, was a Greek goddess. Though there were other moon goddesses, she was the one who embodied 'the moon incarnate'. A friend just showed me this image of her.  (I don't know where it came from so cannot give attribution. No breach of copyright is intended.)

I see that I named my cat well: she has the same slim grace and fine bone structure. (She was previously called Queenie, a name I dislike. To avoid confusing her, I gave her one that rhymed with it. A happy choice!)




When I was on holiday last month, a friend did a Tarot reading for me, for the year to come. The cards that came up in the area of relationship indicated that I would have much new learning to do, and that there would be a brilliant new beginning.





Child of Crystals (Learner) and Ace of Crystals (Brilliance) 
from Voyager™ deck.


I am certainly learning a lot from Selene-cat. I know from her records, via microchip, that she is nearly eight (birthday 1st April), desexed, and has had two previous owners that we know about (probably more * ). It is apparent that she has had at least one litter. From external signs plus telepathic tuning-in by various psychics I know, it appears that she was once a wild cat, not much socialised with humans when young, has experienced abuse, and at some stage has had to scrounge for food. 

She has issues around food, abandonment, and the possibility of being hurt. We got off to a bad start when I misread her cues and treated her like my previous cats, all of whom I raised from when they were youngsters. Instead of backing off when she hissed at me, I blithely picked her up. I got scratched and bitten; she got smacked and scolded. 

It was only her second day with me. I under-estimated how traumatised she was feeling. I should have realised – to this cat I was not Mum, nor Alpha; I was some stranger she'd been dumped on for the second time in six months. Also, she is no child, but an adult who has survived a lot. When I used Reiki II after our – er – misunderstanding, I picked up enormous fear and agitation.

Reiki, pheromones, Rescue Remedy, and letting her set the pace have resulted in her feeling much more relaxed and confident, only three and a half weeks later. She is now an affectionate, trusting, well-behaved cat – with me. She is wary of visitors and it's a rare one she allows close. That's OK, this is a long-term relationship. There will be time for her to feel safer and surer.

Several of my psychic friends have told me she is my new familiar. Some have expressed the opinion that she will become even more special to me than any other cat I've shared my life with – and that this is not a matter of which of us is to be dominant, but rather a relationship of equals. I am conscious of the need to respect her as the mature adult she is, not patronise her as a child. 

One visitor she did allow close was an old friend who came for an energy clearing session. This woman has been working consciously, for years, to more and more embody Unconditional Love. Selene came up to her, investigated the smell and the energy, and gave signs of approval with a little pat of her paw and a rub against my friend's leg. Then she retreated again until we got to a major part of the clearing. She got up on my friend's lap and stayed there until that bit was accomplished, then calmly removed herself again. Yes, that's surely the behaviour of a familiar, lending her energy as required! She had only been here a week at that point.

So many psychic friends told me, after the beloved Spouse died, that a new man would come into my life, and that this would be different from previous relationships. More of a companionship thing than a passionate affair, they said, but nevertheless a great love. In some ways, I was told, this relationship would be more compatible and harmonious than any other. 'There's no reason friendship can't include something more,' some added. 

Well, it didn't happen. A few possibilities showed up, but came to nothing. Friendships, yes, but not particularly close ones. And in truth, I don't yearn for another man in my life in any closer way. I already have wonderful friendships of long standing, with both men and women, and have been so well loved in my life in all sorts of ways that I don't feel I've missed out on anything. (A 'handbag' would be nice occasionally, lol – but is by no means essential.) 

Now I am wondering if they got a detail wrong – perhaps not a new man but a new cat? After Freya and then Levi died, I decided I would not get another cat. For a few months I enjoyed my new freedom: not accountable to anybody else, not responsible for anyone, human or animal.  It was liberating to be able to stay out, on impulse, as long as I liked. It was great to go on a long holiday over Christmas and New Year and catch up with many of my favourite people in other places. But after a while, living self-indulgently began to feel rather pointless.

Still I would not have set out to acquire another cat. A dear friend begged me to take this one. She had belonged to the friend's daughter for about six months, but the young woman realised her lifestyle meant the cat was in danger of being neglected. My friend would have loved to take her, but is not allowed cats where she rents. I could not bear to think of a beautiful creature being neglected or homeless, and I wanted to relieve my friend's distress at the situation. 

'It's not a love affair,' I told people when she first came. 'It's more like an arranged marriage.' And it is certainly different from any previous cat relationships I've ever had. Further, I perceive that we are alike in many ways. She is quite the mirror at times! And we seem to suit each other. She is very undemanding and self-contained. Yet she also has times of being very affectionate, actually initiating cuddles and strokings. By now I totally love her, and she shows every sign of loving me too. Many of the things said about the man who was supposedly coming could well apply to Selene. I'll certainly be happy enough if so!

I still have pangs at times, when I think of Levi and Freya. I still love them and miss them.  But that has nothing to do with Selene. It is a separate matter. The old grief, which I'm still working through to some extent, coexists with the new, intriguing relationship I'm beginning to build.


____________________________________________


(The woman who gave her to my friend's daughter thought she was about five and a half at that time, two years short of her actual age according to the birth date listed on the data base. This makes me think she had not had her the whole time since kittenhood, particularly as she failed to provide documentation of Selene's history, though she was listed as owner on the data base. That only shows the current owner – now listed as me. There could have been several others. I imagine that at some stage she was a rescue cat who had been on her own, had kittens, and was then taken into care, spayed and microchipped, and possibly fostered before a person was found for her. This is at least her third home, and possibly fourth or more, even if you don't count fending for herself at some period, as we suspect. Well, the buck stops here.)
