Clearing & Protecting From Negative Energy

How To Get Rid of Negative Energy and Protect Your Positive Energy Field

Feeling the negative emotions and energies of other people can be extremely draining on us – especially when we have rather strong empathic abilities. It gets to a point where sometimes there’s so much negative CRAP going around that eventually you can’t decipher who’s emotions are who’s anymore. Then, like a downward spiral, if we’re not careful or spiritually aware, it can send us into a more depressive state – and we could even start to feel more physical effects such as headaches, digestive tract issues (IBS, ulcers, GERD, etc), anxiety/panic attacks, and so on.

When the 100 year old paper mill that founded our little northern town was shut down last year (and only 3 days before Christmas thanks grrrrr), as I am sure you can imagine the population of the entire town was shocked. But after the shock, of course came the anger, rage, sadness and grief … and it was being experienced by EVERYONE.

With everyone in town feeling the same emotions – and in extremely high levels – for me it was very difficult to maneuver around town just to do the smallest of errands. Being as empathic as I am, I couldn’t ignore the cyclone of negativity sweeping throughout the area. I would sit in the truck and just cry. It’s all I could do. Such sorrow. Such grief and sense of loss. Such rage! It was too much for me to bear … so it ended up I didn’t leave my home again for a good solid 2 weeks.

In that two-week time period though, I had to do something to help myself. I had to get rid of the horribly nasty energy that was bombarding my own energetic field – and then PROTECT myself from any further influences. I am now going to share with you my own personal practice for cleansing your energy field from those negative energies and then PROTECTING that newly cleansed aura from any further negativity.


I personally use two of the most powerful cleansing tools known – and I use them BOTH together: water and sage.

The first step is to take either a bath or shower. While in the water, visualize the negativity falling away from your body and swirling down the drain (and I visualize negative energy as black ‘blobs’). When you notice that there isn’t too many more of those black ‘blob’s falling away from your body, you can then get out of the bath or shower.

After your cleansing shower or bath, it is then time to smudge with sage. And no I do NOT mean the sage you use for cooking!!! My husband tried that on me once when I asked him to get me the sage. LOL! Wrong sage! LOL! Now, you can use loose sage like I do (sage grows everywhere up here so there’s no shortage), or you can purchase sage smudging wands/sticks. Either will work; I just use the loose sage because I add cedar leaves when it’s smoldering.

As the sage is smoldering, you start from the top of your head and work your way down. Waft the smoke over your head 3 times. Then, waft the smoke to the ears, the eyes, and then the mouth (think along the lines of see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil lol). 3 times for each. Then work your way down further; waft the smoke towards your heart – again 3 times. Then your hips, legs, knees – all the way to your feet. At this point you are now fully cleansed of any negative energies. I usually then proceed to smudge my entire house – just for good measure. You don’t have to, but if you feel the need then there’s nothing wrong in doing so.


First step: visualize yourself as being fully encompassed by a highly-energized bubble of pink and green light (pink and green light are the colors of Divine love and healing). No negativity, psychic attacks, etc can penetrate this electrified bubble that’s surrounding you. It will just bounce right off of it. If you feel the need, likewise envision your home, friends, family members, etc as being within their own bubbles of protection as well.

Second and final step: get your hands on some hematite. Hematite is an awesome gemstone known for it’s negativity repelling qualities. It also actually helps to protect from unwanted spirit visitors. I always suggest that you get the gemstone in a necklace where it can always be worn and is placed closest to the heart. If not a necklace, then a ring or bracelet that is placed on the LEFT hand or wrist. If you don’t like wearing jewelry, you can most certainly just carry the stone itself in your pocket or purse. Just so long as you are in ownership of the stone and it is around you somewhere. But let it be known that it is most powerful when worn by the owner.

Repeat this process whenever you feel the need and/or when you find yourself in the midst of a negativity storm.

* As a note, the bubble visualization is also GREAT for trying to repel against negative events as well as to help attract positive outcomes to situations! I’ve used it on at least two separate occasions that I can immediately recall when I was a single mother: both times it worked: it repelled a potential negative event from happening and in another situation it attracted the exact outcome that I was hoping for – and in both situations it was basically ‘against all odds.’

Much love and blessings to everyone,

Do Cursed Astrological Charts Exist?

Article written by fellow OLIT Virtue Constance Stellas. Shared with her permission. Thanks Constance this is awesome!

Many people have told me before their astrology reading that they have a cursed chart. This comment makes my blood boil! I ask, “Do you mean that your star patterns are arranged in such a way that there is no hope in this lifetime for you to have any joy, love, success, or happiness?” And sometimes a person miserably nods, “Yes that’s it. My astrologer said my chart was cursed.” INFURIATING. First because this situation is NEVER true and secondly because this person had been exposed to a psychic attack.

In the first situation, after reading and studying more than 10,000 charts, I have never seen a totally doomed, hopeless chart. There are difficult charts and we know that some people have very difficult lives. And there are times in a person’s life that their chart reflects planetary stress; during these times a person may feel punished and it is a time of severe testing. All this is true but the planetary stress eventually abates and the life situation can improve.


Gurus from India where astrology is woven into the culture have said that they have purposely reincarnated with extremely challenging charts to illustrate how fortitude and spiritual strength can manage and even triumph under oppressive transits. Not many of us are on the path of spiritual evolution that a guru pursues but the wisdom is important for all of us: your chart always holds the key to better times and experiences.

The second situation in which a person is told that their chart is cursed is more serious. This is a psychic attack. A psychic attack occurs when someone gains entry to your unconscious with or without your permission and you, in a suggestible state, hear something that diminishes your own power. These suggestions can range from “someone has put a curse on you and I can remove it for the fee of (usually, a lot of money).” Or, “in your past life you practiced black magic and now are cursed to live out your punishment.” Or more specifically, “you will marry but the man or woman will die.”

Terrible, terrible manipulation and totally worthless as far as advising a client or interpreting any occult art. And as I mentioned, many times there is a price tag attached to these predictions because only the all-knowing seer can undo the curse. Losing money is not the real problem. The spiritual openness that a person has when he or she is distraught and vulnerable and hears a devastating prediction can lead to a bondage relationship where the person seeks out more and more people to confirm the horror. In this vulnerable state words stick in the subconscious and can become a self-fulling prophesy.

In primitive societies people wore amulets to ward off the evil eye. Today in some countries people wear a blue eye charm to protect themselves; a cross, or star is also a symbol meant to protect the person from unwanted vibrations that sap their strength, courage and joy. To definitely shrug off a psychic attack a person needs self-knowledge and energetic self-love. This will challenge the head space of “they know” and “I don’t.”

Lastly, it is impossible for anyone to put a curse on you if you are truly loved or truly love someone.

I know this because a gypsy told me so.
