Different people around you have different energies, and often those energies slip away as a person cannot contain them. When someone carries negativity inside of them, you should do your best to protect yourself from it reaching you. Possible psychic attacks can disrupt your everyday life in so many ways, which is why it is important to know how to shield yourself from them. So, let us learn what a psychic attack is and what steps you can take to protect yourself from one.
What is a psychic attack?
To be able to know when someone directs a psychic attack at you, you first need to understand what it is. A psychic attack is when another person directs a lot of negative energy at you or someone else, whether intentionally or by accident. Most often psychic attacks happen because someone feels jealous or angry towards you. Since it is hard to control negative emotions, people might harm others even without having evil intentions.
Negative energy from psychic attacks can cause damage to your body, mind, and spirit. A conscious attack is different from unintentional one because the person means harm with it. Unconscious attacks typically happen when people are jealous of your life or progress, envious of your appearance or relationships, fear you, or lack self-confidence. They project their negative thoughts or words on you, thus sending negativity your way, and this is how a psychic attack happens.
Why do psychic attacks affect you?
Psychic attacks are directed at your aura, the energy body surrounding your physical body. Just as with your physical state, the health of your aura can become weaker because of
- Unhealthy lifestyle habits like smoking and drinking alcohol
- Heavy metals, polluted air, and other toxins in the environment
As a result, your energy body can become vulnerable to a psychic attack.
How to recognize a psychic attack?
Psychic attacks are not always easy to recognize, but there are some symptoms that could help you understand that negative energy was directed your way. These symptoms are often like those of an illness, and they might not even be related to a psychic attack, but you should always be on the lookout for the possibility of one. In case you experience them for a long time, contact your doctor, because you might be ill.
Here are a few things to watch out for to recognize a psychic attack:
- Visions of the attacker
- Physical or emotional pain without an apparent reason
- Fatigue, weakness, and lethargy
- Anxiety or depression
Ways to protect yourself from a psychic attack
Psychic attacks can happen to anyone, but if you learn how to protect yourself from one, it is less likely to happen to you. Strengthening your aura and using protective techniques can help you live without worrying about negativity directed your way. Here are some tips and tricks you can follow to prevent a psychic attack and shield yourself from negative energies.
1. Use crystal stones
Natural crystals have strong protective properties. People use them to shield themselves from negative energies and evil influences coming from the outside world. You can get crystals as stones or in the form of jewelry to protect yourself. Black obsidian, amethyst, tiger’s eye, and fluorite are good natural stones that offer protection from negative energies. If you are not sure which stone to choose, know that typically, darker colors absorb more negativity.
Meditation itself is not a protective solution from negative energies in a sense that it does not create a shield around you. However, meditating every day to balance your chakras will strengthen your aura, making it more resistant in the event a psychic attack happens. Just like you eat healthy and exercise to strengthen your physical body and your immune system, the practice of meditation works to improve your aura health.
3. Take a salt bath
Epsom salt baths are believed to be helpful when you need to release negative energies. If you are feeling afraid or anxious, taking a warm and relaxing bath will soothe your worries. Soak for 10-15 minutes in a bath with about a cup of Epsom salts. Do not overdo it though because staying in the water for too long might make you feel weaker than before. If you feel drained after your bath, replenish your energies with nutritious food.
4. Burn incense
It is believed that the smoke that comes from burning incense has a purifying and cleansing effect. Get rid of negative energies in your living space by burning a cleansing incense, like sage, and walk around with it to let the smoke spread. Some types of incense can have artificial scents that can ruin the purpose of you burning them in the first place. That is why it is best to choose incenses made from pure essential oils.
5. Do not attack back
Negative thoughts and feelings are powerful, and they are harming not only the victim but the attacker as well. When someone directs negativity your way, they leave themselves exposed, and this might happen to you as well. If you feel that someone is attacking you, do not attack back. Negative feelings make you shift the focus to the toxic things inside you instead of building the happy life you deserve.
6. Focus on the positive
If you become a victim of a psychic attack, chances are you are focused too much on the negative things in your life and you are ignoring its positive aspects. It might be hard to do, but you need to redirect your thoughts to something that is joyful and pleasant. When you feel like a negative thought is slipping into your mind, replace it immediately with a good one. Do it as many times during the day as you need in order to get used to positive thinking.
Now that you know what a psychic attack is and how you can protect yourself, take the steps to defend your mind in case someone sends negative energy your way. It will be helpful to consult a professional psychic reader for reading your energies and evaluating your psychic health.
