Spiritual protection is something that everyone should practice no matter what your religion or beliefs, negativity is damaging not only to you and your space but the people you love and surround you. other people.
The more you engage in negativity, the more weight upon your energy field. If you keep doing this, the negative energy will start to leak all over your life, creating problems at home, at work, and with people you love.
To make sure bad energy doesnt follow you around there are several things you can do to protect yourself.
WHITE LIGHT OF PROTECTION
1 Every morning while you are in the shower or if you can take a few minutes sit quietly somewhere and try to imagine white light surrounding you. Like when you see the sun shining through the clouds, make it bright and make it cover you, how ever you like to imagine it. It could be a bubble of white light or a pyramid surrounding you and all you have to do is imagine this covering your whole body, if you can get it bigger and cover you house and loved ones even better. It may sound silly but it really does work, once you have yourself covered ask the universe, source, your guides, angels, Jesus, God or whom ever you feel comfortable asking to protect you for the day. This is also particularly helpful if travelling and you are worried.
SMUDGING and SAGE BURNING
Burning or smudging sage is a ritual from Native American tradition. Today, people burn sage and other holy herbs to cleanse a space or environment of negative energy, Intention is everything with this ritual, so before you light up, make sure you know what you are wanting to remove from you your room/house or life and have this intention while burning your sage. Burning Palo Santo wood has had a bit of press about it being the endangered tree since the western world caught onto its healing properties but Sacred Wood Essence have a great page clearing up this confusion. Burning this wood in your home or office is great for relieving common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation and emotional pain.
The following stones are very good to use for auric health and protection in general: black onyx, amber, obsidian, apache tear, amethyst, citrine, fluorite, magnetite, and tigers eye. Head to your local crystal shop or purchase online crystals that talk to you. My first crystal shop I went into I felt dizzy and a little nauseas but I was out of alignment. My first crystal I purchased was a clear quarts with double points and as I held it my hand heated up and had a slight tingle, I had no idea what was going on but I bought it and it is now my favourite crystal. Selenite (below) is helpful for brining in the white light also and nice to keep some beside your bed.
Black tourmaline is famous among healers and shamans for its protective, grounding qualities. It heals physically, spiritually, and emotionally, Black tourmaline (above) is one of the most protective crystals, banishing negative energy and vibes.
