Each person has at their chief a center of spiritual energy that radiates from their body. For most of us the aura, or that cocoon of energy around our body, is invisible. But psychics report that they can see the aura and clarify a person’s overall condition by the strength and color of the aura. For our purposes, we’ll call that combination of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energies that make you who you are your psychic self.
Our aura reflects our combined physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. People who are healthy, well-balanced, content, and spiritually-connected have strong bright auras, while people who are ill, distressed, depressed, or spiritually poor have ineffective dark auras. When people interact, their auras sometimes connect. And people with negative auras can truly drain positive people of their spiritual energy.
Our bodies have feedback mechanisms that govern our psychic and spiritual energies and determine the size, strength, and colors of our aura. The idea is simple. When you are ill, you don’t think as clearly. When you don’t think clearly, your emotions are likely to get out of balance, and you’ll feel stressed. When you feel stressed, you’re less likely to be able to continue a spiritual connection with the people and positive energies around you. And the weaker your spiritual energies are, the sicker you’ll feel physically. You can get caught in a downward spiral of feedback where your energies continue to degrade, your feel worse, and your aura gets weaker and darker.
however, when you feel good physically, when you are strong and healthy, your will be more mentally clear and alert. When you’re thinking more clearly, your emotionals are more likely to be balanced and positive. And when these energies are positive, you can continue and enhance your spiritual connection. Then you feel better. You can also get in an upward spiral, regularly improving in general condition. Your aura will mirror this upward spiral, growing stronger and brighter as your condition improves.
External forces affect you in addition. Society teaches you how and what to think about many things, and this can shape your mental and emotional condition. If you practice regular exercise and eat a balanced diet, your physical condition will be strong and stable. Economic factors can influence your psychic health. If you are under financial stress, it will have the same effect as any other stress and degrade your energies. When you are stable and obtain financially, you are less likely to be affected by financial stresses. If you disagree strongly with the political decisions and actions your government is taking, you introduce another stress. consequently, externalities have a role in your feedback mechanisms and can change your level of energy.
Individuals in your life can affect your energies and change the condition of your psychic self. Positive individuals are likely to make you feel positive. Conversely, negative individuals are likely to “bring you down” by draining your psychic self of its energy and vitality.
Clearly, under this construction, stress of any kind can be very damaging, making your psychic health as important as your physical health. You use seat belts to protect your physical health when you’re in a car. You lock your house to protect yourself from burglars and intruders. You do what you can to protect yourself from criminals and people who would abuse or use you. So why not protect yourself from the negative energies and influences that can drain your psychic energies?
The way to practice psychic self-defense is to continue as healthy a balance of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy as possible. You do this by keeping physically healthy by exercise and proper eating habits, by remaining intellectually active and challenged, by achieving a positive emotional outlook, and by regularly improving your spiritual connections to other people and the world around you.
Introspection is a valuable tool. In order to begin this course of action of healing, you must review your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to weed out pessimism, resentment, anger, envy, and discontent. You must replace those negative energies with positive energies like optimism, compassion, joy, contentment, and peace. At the same time, you should take a good look at your relationships. Where are they negative and destructive? Where are they healthy and positive? You may need to let go of some relationships when you realize that they are really draining your psychic self and weakening your aura. And you should cultivate those relationships that are positive and healthy, for they can only make you stronger.
Book store shelves, and Amazon.com, are complete of self-help books that will help you in your internal cleansing course of action. The world’s great holy texts (the Bible, Qur’an, and Bagavhad Gita) can help you find your spiritual center and direction. Twelve step groups, where appropriate, can be very helpful guiding you by this course of action, as it’s exactly what they were designed to do. And therapy and sustain groups are obtainable that can give you further insight.
Meditation is the single most important tool obtainable to you that integrates your basic energies and cleanses you of negative energies. You can also try other “New Age” techniques like becoming a vegetarian, using crystals and amulets, and drinking healing herbal teas. But the point is working on your psychic self to clear negative thinking and destructive feelings from your being.
In the end, your own self-discipline and will to enhance are your greatest strengths. Making a personal commitment to psychic self-defense necessitates a program of self-examination and self-improvement. Once on that path, your rewards will be so great that continuing will be automatic and desirable.
When you become experienced in this area, you will literally feel those moments when you are under “psychic attack,” when negative energies and influences are draining you. You will know how to protect yourself and how to make yourself stronger.
This may all sound “out there” and silly. But it is fact. There is nothing on this page that mankind hasn’t known for thousands of years. Modern societies seem to want to forget these truths, to their peril.
