“How can I protect myself?” I am frequently asked.
The first advice many people receive is to visualize a energy shell around themselves. The color of this energy varies depending on who you listen to. I call this level 1 self protection. This easy method reminds us we can chose what to allow into our mind, body and spirit. The most important part of this plan is holding the intention to be protected. When we focus on an intention with enough power nothing else is needed.
As I continued to see the variety of human suffering I became aware of another way to visualize self-protection. When confronted by evil entities or energy I wanted help. I realized that we can connect to great power through many spiritual practices. Connecting to this power we are metaphorically connecting to a 1000 watt light bulb. Any evil that touches it is repelled as though it was a bug touching a bug zapper.
Eventually I had trouble using the word evil. I think of events and energies which don’t service us an abuse of power. The power itself isn’t the problem.
I do my healing work in my home. I began to think of my home as a goldfish bowl filled with water. The water being the air in the house. I thought of the water as pure loving kindness. If anyone brought evil into the house I saw them speak and visualized their words as though breathing red food coloring into that water of loving kindness. The water transformed that breath and the water became clear again. Eventually I visualized the earth and its atmosphere as this same bowl of loving kindness. Perhaps we pollute the earth’s loving kindness as we pollute its oceans.
And yet, how beautifully simple. Animism and physics both tell us that all things of this world are constructed of the same particles. Shouldn’t we view them as filled with the same great mystery which created us? More about animism and evil later. In the meantime, I hope you can use something here to protect yourself.
