Monday August 30, 2004: Maintaining Balance: Psychic Attacks

        The greater the number of individuals expanding their awareness into higher dimensions, the greater the chance that some of those people will run into trouble. Most books and courses never mention anything but wondrous and uplifting experiences in higher realities. Since I'm the skeptic, let me discuss the subject we all hope you never have to deal with -- psychic attacks.

          First off, relax. If you only have an isolated experience within higher dimensions, then odds are greatly in your favor that it will be a pleasant encounter. If you should find yourself confronting a negative entity, remember this -- your best defense against most psychic attacks is to raise your everyday awareness to higher levels, beyond the reach of most low-level attacks. However, this is not just a matter of keeping positive thoughts or clinging to religious beliefs.

          Almost every time I hear someone complain of facing negative forces or having the devil working against them or that they are under attack by outside forces, a quick scan reveals nothing of the sort. What I see is the person's own attitudes, opinions and desires running smack into the reality of the outside world. Either their own mindset is too rigid and unrealistic, or they fail to see that other people also have strongly held attitudes, opinions and desires.

          True attacks come in one of four different forms. Since these occur so infrequently (even to the highly sensitive), always be sure you have honestly faced up to everyday reality before considering these options.

        First are very low and weak attacks from entities who are more like parasites. These may hang out in bars, gambling halls, or other hot spots and latch on to someone with a weakened aura. They then encourage self-destructive behavior, living vicariously through their victim. They may follow around stronger-willed individuals. These hosts are usually (though not always) people who have controlled outer lives but long-standing, unresolved issues or strongly repressed inner emotions. I have heard of several gurus or Masters protecting individuals from these type entities until the student is stronger. When the Master's protection is removed, the individual must then handle the problem on his or her own.

        I also have seen or heard of these entities following their host back into the home (or someone else's home), only to attack or pester innocent household members. In all cases with which I am familiar, infants and young children were pestered by these low level entities during sleep. If the child fell asleep near an emotionally stable adult the child slept normally. However, left in bed alone, the child or infant awoke over and over in tears. This pattern of sleep disturbance stood out as uncharacteristic for the child.

       I have heard of these entities trying to spook or scare adults during meditation, often in the image of a large predatory beast attacking. Note that if you are just beginning meditation, the mind itself can panic when it first feels confined to silence and inactivity. It is not uncommon for the mind to project its own images in a desperate attempt to shock and startle the awareness back into a more familiar pattern of busy work. In either case, one should remain a detached observer (these images can't hurt you) while centering your emotions on a positive relationship with the Divine. Focus on feeling more love, trust or gratitude.

            If there is no basis within the individuals themselves to account for the attack image, or a child is uncharacteristically terrified of sleep, consider the possibility of an unwanted astral guest in the house. If you are psychic it is an easy matter to scan the house and pick up unwanted guests. These type entities are not dangerous. They are more of a nuisance. 

      You can personally deal with the intruder or use a prayer or ritual protection that extends from yourself outward until it surrounds the house and family members. For a protective circle, start with yourself and using love, push all negative vibrations back away from your center. If you are strong enough in your faith and love, this protection can be extended to the neighborhood and community.

     The second type of astral attack is from individuals, although as I said earlier, it is rare.  Most individuals cannot direct their awareness and energies into a singular focus. Those who have learned focus through spiritual disciplines generally don't attack. Consider this possibility only after exhausting other options.

       Your own sense of inner peace, confidence and goodwill, as well as a recognition that the attack is coming from outside, should remove most of the impact. A very focused outside attack may require additional strengthening of your own aura using white light or Divine Love. Let your confidence and peace of mind extend goodwill to those who are troubled.

        Be honest with your own actions, and apologize or make amends if there is the slightest chance your actions were initially at fault. Be slow to point a finger. If your words or actions have created strong emotional responses from other people then you need to look critically at how you are handling those relationships. While you do not need to condone the attacker's motives, make sure you are sending out good will. 

    The third form involves astral beings who appear before you. This can be a freaky occurrence. Start by realizing that in a physical world, he or she who has the physical body has the upper hand. The only way non-physical beings can get to you is through your fear. They cannot harm a confident person. 

        Ask who they are and what they want. One friend was terrified by three figures who kept appearing in her living room. Because they were dressed in dark brown hooded robes that totally hid their faces she made the assumption they were sinister. When she confronted the figures she discovered they were from a spiritual order and were actually there to help her.

      If the entity is trying to frighten you, tell it to bug off. This is your world. You have the choice of what you allow into your circle of awareness. 

      The fourth attack comes from those entities that can be considered truly negative, and these are especially rare cases. Unless you have enough discipline, control, or past life history to pose a serious threat to these type entities, I doubt they would take much interest in you. 

        If there might be a potential confrontation, then preparation is consistent with spiritual training. I can only share what I've picked up from a handful of encounters. Someday I may learn a better method of coping, but for now my best advice is to let loose of all emotions except that of love for the Divine. If you can't maintain a strong sense of confidence then getting rid of all fear removes the ability of a negative power to lock onto you and gives Divine Power the chance to flow through you. This is what Jesus meant when he said "resist not evil." You cannot combat outer negative forces with your own negativity - not even righteous anger. You need to become transparent to the negativity. 

        A confrontation like that is a test of how completely you can surrender to the Divine. You have to be willing to give up everything in this world for the love of the Divine. I suggest you not wait until you are up against the wall. Perfect your ability to surrender beforehand.

Thanks for this information. It seems to ring true in all accounts. I have been attacked before by truly negative forces. It usually happens to me when i begin to get sucpicious of people who may be looking at me and i am in a closed space like on a train or bus or in a small room. it is worse when there are crowds but i get bouts of it which keep recurring for perhaps 6-8 weeks lets say and can occur anywhere. I have felt a force actively not wanting me to surrender to the divine. its tricks are to make me feel trapped and that allying this force is the only way out. it then looms around, trying to scare me all it can. I only have to think of it once and it is there, like something laughing at me. its very difficult not to think about it at all( not even a drifting thought). Because of it i tend to drink a lot of alcohol as it seems to ease the burden and make it temperarily go away. Music also helps me to become transparent to it, as does drinking lots of water, taking rigerous exercise like running. Generating strong sexual passion for someone can greatly ease things too.

I'm a little confused. My brother, who can see auras, has been telling me that even though the color changes, and the diffrent intensitys, there is one dark, clear, almost emrald green spot over my left shoulder, and it's always been there. Can anyone tell me what this may mean?
December 19, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterKat
How about some more information? I suggest going back to your brother, especially since he has the background and insight to compare this to other auras (I'm assuming he sees auras on a regular basis). Helpful details would include: how the rest of your aura presents, clarity of the green color and how it sits with the other colors, when did he first notice the pattern, how it compares to the way he usually sees patterns in other people.
Email me with more details, as this really deserves its own entry.

Off and on throughout the years i have found myself able to go out of body when im laying down to go to sleep although im no expert,i had a few interesting experiences. Anyway sometimes i seem to go somewhere in which i cant see anything and i seem to feel others hands everywhere around me. Does anyone have a clue what thats all about?

A few years back while going through a very emotional draining experience over a period of time i started noticing an odd feeling as i layed down to sleep.It felt as if someone or something was moving around me on my bed.In fact i could feel small areas of my bed indent around me and could sense some kind of magnetic energy disturbance that seemed to coalesce around the areas of my chakras.In fact as more time went by i even started noticing my name being whispered around me as i lay down for bed. At first i was intrigued and tried communicating but all i ever heard back was my name. As i started paying more attention i noticed it also seemed to be around me in the day and i was bothered by this especially when i repeatedely told whatever it is to stop and that i didnt want it around and it still has not listened. I could go on about a few more unnerving experiences that i attribute to this entity but basically what im trying to ask is: How can i permenentely expel this prescence from my home?

hi there, thanks for your comments they re really useful. i'm also experiencing psychics attacks since last year but even if after a few month i started to doubts the origin of this contact as something somehow malefic, some part of me wanted to believe it was some sort of good experience and that this spirit was some kind of god. i couldn't (or didn't want to) believe it could be negative, even if the feelings i got and the logic was telling me it was wrong. but by sharing your expedrience, you proved me that things like that could exist. THANK YOU SO MUCH

I must disagree with out about the low level entity attacks. They can do profound damage to the biochemistry (since it cannot be separated from emotions). I find these entities almost always attach to and hound people with weak adrenals. Much of the anxiety out there is fueled by these entities. People need to keep their homes and auras clear of these buggers as much as possible. If you smoke pot or drink, stop. That is their favorite way to manipulate.

I am much obliged to you!

Wonderfully explained. Can you please elaborate on how to make yourself transparent to negativity?
March 11, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterlove psychic
Making yourself transparent to negative energies means not emotionally responding. Observe what is going on with detached curiosity, keeping your own heart filled with love and compassion. Fear, concern that you must protect yourself or respond with a counter-attack sets up a connection with the negative energy flow. Perhaps I can get into this more later. Hope that helps.

I see, thank you so much! So basically you concentrate on all the good things about life, but not completely disregard all the bad things either. Just accept that they happen, but don't dwell on them. I'll be looking forward to your future articles regarding this =)
