Psychic Self-Defense: Tips for Building a Stronger Aura

Each person has at their core 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 identify a person’s general condition by the strength and color of the aura. For our purposes, we’ll call this combination of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energies that make you your psychic self.

Our aura reflects our combined physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Healthy, balanced, happy and spiritually connected people have strong bright auras, while people who are sick, distressed, depressed or spiritually poor have weak dark auras. When people interact, their auras sometimes connect. And people with negative auras can 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’re sick, you don’t think so clearly. When you’re not thinking clearly, your emotions are likely to get out of balance and you’ll feel stressed. When you feel stressed, you are less likely to be able to maintain a spiritual connection with the people and positive energies around you. And the weaker your spiritual energies are, the sicker you will feel physically. You can get caught in a downward spiral of feedback where your energies continue to degrade, you feel worse and your aura becomes weaker and darker.

On the other hand, when you are physically well, when you are strong and healthy, you will be mentally clearer and more alert. When you think more clearly, your emotions are more likely to be balanced and positive. And when these energies are positive, you can maintain and enhance your spiritual connection. Then you feel better. You can also enter an upward spiral, constantly improving in general condition. Your aura will reflect this upward spiral, becoming stronger and brighter as your condition improves.

External forces also affect you. Society teaches you how and what to think about many things, and this can shape your mental and emotional condition. If you exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet, your physical condition will be strong and stable. Economic factors can influence your mental health. If you are under financial stress, it will have the same effect as any other stress and degrade your energies. When you are financially stable and secure, you are less likely to be affected by financial stress. If you strongly disagree with the policy decisions and actions your government is taking, introduce another stressor. Thus, externalities play a role in your feedback mechanisms and can change your energy level.

Individuals in your life can affect your energies and change the condition of your psychic self. Positive people are likely to make you feel positive. Conversely, negative individuals are likely to “sink you down” by draining your psychic self of its energy and vitality.

Clearly, under this construct, stress of any kind can be very damaging, making your mental health just as important as your physical health. Use seat belts to protect your physical health when riding in the car. Lock your home to protect yourself from burglars and intruders. Do what you can to protect yourself from criminals and people who abuse or use you. So why not protect yourself from negative energies and influences that can drain your psychic energies?

The way to practice psychic self-defense is to maintain as healthy a balance of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy as possible. You do this by staying physically healthy through exercise and proper eating habits, staying intellectually active and challenged, achieving a positive emotional outlook, and constantly improving your spiritual connections with others and the world around you.

Introspection is a valuable tool. To begin this healing process, you must revise your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to eliminate pessimism, resentment, anger, envy, and discontent. You must replace these negative energies with positive energies such as 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 actually draining your psychic self and weakening your aura. And you should cultivate those positive and healthy relationships, because they can only make you stronger.

Bookstore shelves and Amazon.com are full of self-help books that will help you in your inner cleansing process. The world’s great sacred texts—the Bible, the Koran, and the Bagavhad Gita—can help you find your spiritual center and direction. Twelve-step groups, if applicable, can be very helpful in guiding you through this process, as that is exactly what they were designed to do. And there are therapy and support groups available that can give you more information.

Meditation is the most important tool at your disposal that integrates your core energies and cleanses you of negative energies. You can also try other “New Age” techniques, such as going vegetarian, using crystals and amulets, and drinking healing herbal teas. But the point is to work on your psychic self to remove negative thinking and destructive feelings from your being.

In the end, your own self-discipline and desire to improve are your greatest strengths. Making a personal commitment to psychic self-defense requires a program of self-examination and self-improvement. Once on this path, your rewards will be so great that continuing will be automatic and desirable.

When you have experience in this area, you will literally feel those times when you are under “psychic attack”, when negative energies and influences are draining you. You will know how to protect yourself and how to become stronger.

All of this may seem “out there” and silly. But it is a fact. There is nothing on this page that humanity has not known for thousands of years. Modern societies seem to want to forget these truths, at their peril.
