Psychic self-protection and boundaries

How do I care for my psychic space, in terms of keeping it clear and clean and protected from low frequency energy in the world around me? And why won’t you ever hear me using the term psychic attack?

I’ll answer the last question first….

Just the phrase itself, “psychic attack” will light up areas of your brain to do with feeling threatened, and change your behaviour in ways that emphasise your perception of feeling separate from others in negative ways. Just reading the word ‘attack’ will press your limbic buttons, shut down the parts of your brain that help you control anger and fear (the anterior cingulate and striatum) and put your amygdala on the alert, generating a fight or flight response that spreads throughout your entire body.

What’s wrong with this? Well, if there is any actual attack, I’d say this it is. We attack and corrode our own health on all levels when we become stressed in this manner, especially when the stress is chronic and habitual, which definitely happens with people who tend to be on the alert for psychic attack.

If you aren’t much interested in neuroscience, let me explain the same phenomenon from my perspective as an aura reader and healer. As soon as you decide that your existing boundaries aren’t strong enough to protect you from the ill-wishing and psychic negativity of a persecutor, you give your power away and your auric frequency drops. Whether the psychic attack is real or not, the end outcome is the same, because when your frequency drops, your energy levels drop, your mental clarity disappears, your thinking becomes negative, your emotions become fragile and/or erratic, and you may feel unwell. If you were ever going to vulnerable to the negative energy of another person or situation, it’s when your frequency drops, but really, you are doing their job for them by poisoning yourself with negative thoughts, beliefs and stories.

Giving your power away and projecting your shadows onto others

From time to time, someone will contact me asking if I can help them remove a hex, or because they are under psychic attack. I refer them on to other practitioners because I don’t enjoy the ‘giving your power away’ paradigm. To work with them, I either have to honour their paradigm and enter into it, or find a way to coax them out of it. The first approach means dropping my frequency and playing make believe in a way that disempowers both me and the client. The second option is doable but can be tiresome; people who readily embrace the idea of hexes and psychic attack tend to be fear-based in their thinking, some to the point of paranoia, and they are so deeply ingrained in their fears that invitations to reframe reality are met with the same suspicion they apply to everything else.

As much as possible, I like to honour the beliefs of others and sometimes the best way I can do this with fear-based clients is to refer them on to someone who shares their beliefs. But I’m also in the process of learning how to speak up for my own truth, so I wanted to write this blog to clarify my thoughts on this topic, for both myself and others. And perhaps also to explore an AND perspective; how can I honour their paradigm AND help bust them out of it at the same time. I think the answer lays in my core truth regarding the value of metaphor in spiritual work as opposed to taking everything so literally.
