SMUDGING ~ SPACE CLEARING & CLEARING NEGATIVE ENERGY. (it’s a perfect time to do this after a Full Moon)
Smudging is an ancient ritual which cleanses and purifies the air and the energy around you, your home, your work or anything else you want to clear energetically.
The use of dried white sage, however, is a 2,000-year-old Indigenous American practice. The shamans used dried sage plants on their fires as a ritual of calling upon ancestral spirits.
Any conflict, anger, illness or evil was absorbed by the sage smoke to be released or cleansed from the energy field of a person and transmuted with love.
Some ideal (or necessary) times to sage smudge your aura and/or space, home office, sacred space etc would be:
When you move into a new home and you want to clear the energy.
When you begin a new job or start your own business
Before and after a guest enters your home
Before and after a healing session
After an argument or any illness or any general negativity that is going on in your home, office, sacred space or in your life in general!
When you return home from crowded situations
THERE ARE THREE EASY WAYS TO DO IT
Use loose dried white sage or a white ceremonial sage bundle (aka wand), which is usually bound together by some string. I will put a photo of mine in the comments below.
You can find sage bundles at your local metaphysical shop or I get mine online from Amazon or eBay. You could make one out of dried sage but I haven’t ever done that myself (yet) 🙂
Next, place it on any heat-proof burning surface like a shell or a little dish.
Light the bundle by holding a flame to it until it begins to smoke. I usually blow on it so it’s just glowing, (you don’t want a flame coming off it because it would be dangerous, so please be careful doing this). A lot of the time I find that I have to re-light my sage bundle as I’m walking through the house as it can go out but don’t worry about that. I also use White Sage Incense Sticks or Palo Santo Sticks (again I get these from Amazon).
Once you have a nice smoke going, use your hand or a feather to direct the smoke over your body from your feet up to your head, then back down again. As you do this, visualize the smoke removing any unwanted negative energies from your energy body.
There are various things you can say when smudging but it doesn’t matter what you do say as long as you make a clear intention that you are removing all negative energies that do not serve you. Some people like to say things like:
“Into this smoke, I release all energies that do not serve me, all negativity that surrounds me and my home and loved ones. I release it all with love, and so it is!”
Once you have smudged your body, begin to move through your house or area you are smudging. Wave the smoke into all corners, across doorways and into the dark shadow spaces. I usually put the Reiki symbols in each of the corners of each room but smudging is enough to clear the energy).
I keep saying the prayer or incantation as I’m walking through the house as it keeps me focused on the intention that I’ve made.
Once the space is cleared, allow the sage bundle to either burn out or gently press it out in your heat-proof shell or container.
So that’s how easy it is to smudge and clear the energy in your space.
Psychic attack is a very loose term for different types of negative energy being directed at you, either intentionally or unintentionally.
Psychic attack can be from one individual to another or it could be a group attack and that would generate more energy because of the group as a collective and the power of their intentions would be multiplied.
An intentional psychic attack can come in the forms of cords, curses, black magic, someone wishing you harm either physically, emotionally or both & any other negative thought forms.
Cords can be thick like rope or even like barbed wire. You know generally that if you are corded from behind it has been done intentionally. You can cut cords yourself or get an energy worker to cut the cords for you.
Negative thoughts directed at someone are a form of psychic attack. An example might be something like jealousy, maybe your neighbour got a new car or you got overlooked for a promotion at work or you have been betrayed by a partner because they cheated on you and had an affair with someone else. If you feel angry and resentful towards that person or people, and start thinking of ways to pay them back, to get even, any form of revenge is a low vibrational energy and will result in psychic attack (not to mention the karma that will come back and bite you on the ass).
The power of your thoughts and intention are so powerful.
We are all human and we all have human moments when we are mad at someone, or maybe feel annoyed or jealous, but it’s so important to always remember that your thoughts are energetic and where intention goes, energy flows.
Keep your thoughts as positive as possible and be conscious of what you actually are thinking.
It is our job to protect our own energy by properly getting grounded and protected each and every day and cutting cords each day with ‘whatever does not serve us for our highest and greatest good’.
It is not a bad thing to do, to cut cords with people. It’s good energy hygiene.
It is also imperative to have good energetic boundaries in place, especially from people who drain your energy.
I don’t really like calling these people energy vampires as it’s assuming that they are doing it on purpose and sometimes that is not the case at all. They might just be in a bad place and you pick up on their energy.
We can protect our energy in lots of different ways. We can visualise ourselves in a bubble of high vibrational white light and intend that nothing can penetrate the bubble unless it is of the highest and purest vibrational light.
We can ask our Spirit Guides and the Angels to help protect us. You can call upon Archangel Michael each day and ask him to come into your energy body to cut all cords that don’t serve you.
You can also ask for St Germain to blaze his violet flame right through your energy body, blazing away any negativity.
You can have a Reiki shower, draw the Reiki symbols above the shower and intend that all negative energy is being washed down the plug hole.
You can shield yourself by visualising a shield around your body, you can make the shield reflective so that anything that is sent to you is bounced right back to the person sending. (I personally don’t like that method as I always have ‘karma’ in the back of my mind.
Also, as I said previously, having good boundaries with people is good energy hygiene too.
SO HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M UNDER PSYCHIC ATTACK?
I know if I’m feeling different to how I normally feel and if it goes on for a few days, that I may be under some form of psychic attack. If I feel emotions that aren’t normally mine, if I feel teary or depressed or anxious, have bad dreams or nightmares and things generally start going wrong for me, or if I feel as if I’m being watched, I then start to think I might be under psychic attack. I can also sense the energy around me is different and denser, I can’t really explain that but it literally feels to me like I’ve got a dark cloud around me and I actually feel as if I’m suffocating if it’s extreme.
Objects can move or break too. It depends on the severity of the attack and the extent of the intention behind it.
WHAT DO YOU FEEL WHEN YOU’RE UNDER PSYCHIC ATTACK?
The first thing I would do is ask someone to check me out to see if I’ve been the subject of some form of psychic attack or whether I’ve picked up some negative energy from somewhere (like a hospital or nursing home where maybe there maybe spirits who attach themselves to your aura/energy body). Then, I cut cords with everyone and keep cutting cords. I have an Epsom salt bath, sage and smudge the house, give myself Reiki and do everything I can to raise my vibration. That might be using certain crystals for protection, using power shield and astral clear, essential oils and essences. Putting salt above the doors and across the front door is something I do, I also have a wind chime in the hallway that helps to break up the energy in that area. But I always make sure I really ramp up my self-care.
Keep affirming that you are safe and protected.
DO NOT go into fear if you feel you’re under psychic attack as you are then giving more energy to the situation that you are wanting to release.
PSYCHIC VAMPIRES AND ENERGY VAMPIRES
That sounds really really scary, doesn’t it? But they may be friends who are going through a particularly bad time in their lives and they are feeling low and you pick up on that energy because you’ve not put good boundaries in place.
An example of this is if you go to see them and you’re feeling good when you arrive but when you leave, they feel better and you feel absolutely drained and feel like shit and literally, as if you’ve had your life force energy drained from you (which you most probably have)
This is especially true if you’re an empath or sensitive to the feelings of others. This can be a form of unintentional psychic attack.
It is your responsibility to know who drains your energy and to act accordingly by protecting your energy. Someone who is ill and feels really sick may unintentionally take your energy. They are not doing this on purpose so this is another reason to keep your protection ramped up especially in low vibrational energy places like hospitals, care homes, hospices etc.
There are also such things as power objects that can cause energy imbalances too. You might have inherited an object from someone and since that object (say for example a vase) has been in your house things start going wrong and you ‘feel’ that the energy in that room is out of kilter. You can check for these power objects by dowsing and testing to see if the object is a power object. If it is, then give it away. Get rid of it! If you are no longer friends with someone or an ex-partner for example, you may want to get rid of the things that they gave to you especially if the friendship/relationship ended in a bad way.
Houses can be imbued with negative energy, think of builders, say for example who were being poorly paid for their hard work, the energy they imbue into the building of the house can cause negative energy and negative thought forms which results in an unpleasant energy. Houses get sick too. Your house may be built on ley lines or have a lot of EMF around it that is detrimental to you. If something has happened in a house or building, say for example someone took their own life, then this energy can remain until it is cleared by someone who knows how to clear energy or if there was a lot of dis-harmony or domestic violence then the negative energy can remain there too.
This is specialist energy work and you may wish to ask someone who is able to do this to check your property and see what the problems are.
So, you see there is a lot to think about with psychic attack, if you feel you may be under attack then please do not hesitate to contact me as I can do the necessary energy work to help you.
