Do You Protect Your Energy?
How many times have you felt exhausted for no reason?
Have you ever had a phone call and lost the will to live by the time you’ve finished?
In today’s world we are constantly being bombarded by sound and vision from the television, computers and mobiles, but what about the unseen bombardment that happens every second of every day? Influences on our energy that are so subtle that we miss them completely in our busy lives?
Whenever I used to think about Psychic Protection I would conjure up images of hexes and evil spells, fought only by talisman, herbs and crosses. The attacks of today are far easier to miss and far easier to combat. With a few small steps we can begin to become aware of ourselves and trust our instincts.
Some attacks on our energy come from those close to us who are suffering and are not deliberately sent our way. Others come from serial ‘energy vampires’ that are constantly looking for someone to get an energy boost from. Think about who you know and speak to; is there a person who always has a worry or ailment? Someone who has always just had a drama or crisis? Someone who when asked ‘How are you?’ always replies with a negative? Whether it’s circumstantial or deliberate, this IS an attack on your energy. The result of any of these conversations will be that your own energy and resources will be depleted, by how much will depend what else is going on for you.
Energy protection isn’t something that takes years of practise and doesn’t require any special talents. We all have a level of intuition or gut instinct that serves us to some degree. How many times have you walked into a room and you can ‘cut the atmosphere with a knife’? The people in the room may be acting completely normally and being ‘nice’, but you just know! Enter intuition, stage left! We all have certain instinctive responses to difficult situations, notice how many people fold their arms or cross their legs at job interviews and in new surroundings. Some of us cover of throat with a hand or hold our middles where our solar plexus - our energy centre - lives. The first step is to be aware of the movement of both good and bad energy; the second step is to take control of it.
Being aware of our environment is also a key detail. As discussed earlier, our loved ones and friends are in a prime position to sap our energy as they are ‘trusted individuals’ but still equally able to wear us out and leave us exhausted. This may be due to no fault of their own; they may be ill or stressed but still able to affect us. In our homes we relax and therefore let our guard down so could be prone to ‘teenager angst’ attack or ‘stressed out partner’ vibes.
When we go to work we are busy and focused on our logical mind, so even if we are in tune generally we will be off guard here. Work is also a place of insecurity, where we are constantly under pressure to get things right. The people we work with share a common purpose but they aren’t necessarily friends that we would choose. Any insecurities we do possess are easily triggered at work too…how many times have you played out a meeting or negotiation in your mind and seen it ending badly for you? How many circumstances have you ‘known’ wouldn’t go your way when you have imagined it, only for that to become a self-fulfilling prophecy the next day?
With a little positive thinking and a few easy preparation techniques we can guarantee not to overreact or let others push our buttons. Your ‘opponent’ may have circumstances that they too are reacting to. That ‘trail of doom’ that they leave behind them as they walk from their desk to the photocopier because they are a ‘misery guts’ or because ‘its Monday’ may be as a result of something they are dealing with at home. A smile from you rather than a suitably grumpy retaliation is capable of a wonderful chain reaction effect that can completely change the dynamic of an office. Can you imagine how many people and organisations could benefit from this positive? Its stunning to think how something classed as ‘alternative’ or ‘spooky’ could be used to change the business world!
I have always worked with people, initially in a business environment and more recently as a Psychic, Medium and Holistic Therapist. Looking back now I can see the times when people and their energy affected me – every day! There were a few people around me that were energy vampires, although I didn’t know it at the time. I was, however, often reluctant to meet up with them, or I would find myself saying negative things around our meetings.
Working as a Psychic involves interpreting the energy field around a person but initially the hardest thing to learn is how to ‘switch off’. It took a lot of practise to be able to tune in and tune out quickly, but over time it’s become something I can do in an instant.
So why wouldn’t you learn these easy techniques?
Quite often I hear excuses and reasons why people don’t protect their energy: I don’t have time! People will think I’m mad!
Now here comes the homework! Be aware today of your energy. How much do you have when you wake up? How positive do you feel? Monitor yourself throughout the day as you interact with your family and friends, go to work or visit places. Watch how you feel as you enter somewhere new and make note of your gut reactions. Before you make a phone call notice how you feel before, during or after. See if you can spot the ‘energy vampires’ that operate around you and watch the effects they have on you and others. If someone is able to ‘push your buttons’ at work or in the supermarket, ask yourself why they could do it and what was it they made you feel. Do you feel better at home? How about when you get to work? Are there certain triggers when you can feel your energy ebbing away?
If you find that you do have fluctuations in your energy and mood then Psychic Protection is the answer for you.

· Become more aware of the people around you and the effect they have
· Increase your awareness of the ‘unseen’ messages people give

You can then enjoy more positive outcomes to all your encounters!
