A Guide To Spiritual Protection

A Guide To Spiritual Protection

What is Spiritual Protection?

Spiritual protection can be many things or a combination of things. It is when you either, call upon any spiritual guide, angel, god, or any positive universal power, use an energetic protective shield, or utilize an object.

Why is Spiritual Protection Necessary?

In this world today there are many physical and non-physical energies that are searching for an energy source to attach to for nourishment, and if we don’t protect ourselves, we could unknowingly pick up entities and energies that get sucked into our auras and drain us, making us feel tired, unmotivated, depressed and exhausted. If the aura is weak or not protected, it’s easier for these energies to lock into us, and possibly cause negative influences in our lives.

Understanding Your Aura

All of the physical objects in the world around us are made up of molecules, and all of the molecules are made up of energy. There are many ways to describe or explain auras, but in general terms, an aura is an energy field that emanates from all molecules.

Therefore, auras are present around everything, including people, animals, plants, and even inanimate objects (e.g., crystals, furniture, cars). However, auras around living things are typically easier to perceive and are wider than the auras around inanimate objects.

An aura can change in color, width, and strength depending on the person and their current mood or situation. If that person is feeling happy and joyful, the aura might be yellow, bright, and strong, but if they are feeling depressed or sick, their aura could be brown or gray and very weak, dingy, and translucent.

So, for example: When you go through times of great stress, depression, anger, traumatic experience, pain, sickness or physical injury, your aura becomes weak. Drugs and alcohol can also weaken an aura, making it vulnerable to outside energies looking for a source.

Understanding Your Aura
How To Protect Yourself

Step One: Ask

There are many different methods of protection, and many ways to install them with the strongest being, asking God/Source/Spirit, Angels, or guides to be present with you, and protect you from any seen or unseen forces.

Some people call it prayer, but you can refer to it any way you deem fit.

As an example, many people call on Archangel Michael to protect them in times of fear, anxiety or danger. But, if you don’t ask for help, in accordance with the law of free will, the spiritual realm is limited to what they can do. And yes, there is such a thing as divine intervention, but asking for help is much more efficient and securing.

If you don’t feel comfortable asking God, Angels or guides directly for help, you can say a mantra or invocation like:

I invoke the light within me,
I am a clear and perfect channel,
Light is my guide

You can also come up with your own mantra or saying, and use whatever feels right for you.

Step Two: Energy Shield

After you’ve asked for protection, the next step is to energetically surround yourself in a spiritual shield. Shielding is an easy, fast and effective way to protect yourself if in an area where negative energy might be. It only takes a moment, and it is done by asking your guides or angels to surround your body with a protective layer of light and energy.

Simply by holding this intention, the light will be installed around you immediately, without exception. You can visualize, feel, or even think of yourself surrounded in a cocoon of light. You will need to re-shield yourself periodically because shields wear off. In relatively peaceful environments, shields can remain in place for up to 8-12 hours.

However, you will need to re-shield more often in negative environments (e.g. every few hours or whenever you feel a need to protect yourself).

Some people can actually feel the energy bubble surrounding them with either an all over warmth, vibration, chill, or tingle.

Even if you don’t feel it at all, just trust that it is in place, and you are protected. 

You can use any color, and different colors can be used for different purposes. If you like, you can also layer yourself with 2 or 3 several different colors (any more than that, and you’ll be surrounded with too much energy that can be overwhelming):

  • White Light: (All-purpose protection) Invokes angels to protect you from any harm. Often used for protection against crime or physical attack.
  • Gold: Gold is the highest vibrational color, and often associated with the high vibration of archangels. Only energy of the highest good can get through gold light so it can be used for general protection and will often increase your vibrational rate.
  • Green: Healing, and rejuvenating. Used when you are sick or ill.
  • Lead Shield: This is the ultimate shield against toxic energy, because nothing can permeate lead. Use it whenever you are going into a very toxic environment, around a conflict or when you are feeling vulnerable. See or feel yourself completely surrounded in light weight lead.
  • Mirrored Ball: Use this technique if you are feeling vulnerable to attack or when you have to go into a particularly harsh environment. (e.g. crowd, intense business meeting). See or feel yourself stepping inside a mirrored ball. All dark energy bounces away from the ball.

Step Three: Objects


Another powerful way to protect yourself along with the energy shield is having protective objects around you, in your space, or wearing them. Religious icons, talismans, and crystals have their own energy and can help you feel safe, powerful, and protected.

You can even empower your objects by surrounding them with an energy shield like the one’s listed above, or getting them blessed by a religious or spiritual leader.

Out of all the objects, crystals have the most vibration or frequency and can hold, or put out energy of their own. Crystals have a level of conciseness that can be perceived by people, animals and spirits by their aura and vibrational field, and each crystal has a different meaning and purpose.

Here are a list of protective crystals:

(All black crystals are grounding and protecting)

(Note: Form of crystallized Gypsum)

These crystals and stones are all protecting with a few cleansing ones that will help you determine which ones to use in certain situations.

How to Ground Yourself

Staying grounded can be a big factor in keeping your mind and aura positive and strong. The best way to describe being grounded is explaining what it is not. When you are not grounded, you’re often confused, disoriented, unable to focus, you might be constantly dropping things, clumsy, dizzy, daydreaming, forgetful, head in the clouds, etc. Below is a technique you can use at any time to get yourself grounded so you can feel focused and ready.

  • Take a few deep breaths
  • Get yourself in a relaxed and calm position
  • When you’re ready, imagine a root coming down from your root
    chakra at the base of your spine, and going down deep into the earth, then see/feel it clasp on to mother earth.
    Some people can feel the energy of the earth as the roots connect.
  • Then imagine roots coming down from the soles of your feet and going deep into the earth and clasping on. 
  • You can take as much time as you like feeling and absorbing this nurturing energy.
  • Take a few more deep breaths to center yourself.

You can do this exercise as many times as you like throughout the day, or any time you don’t feel grounded. This is not the only technique, but it can help you get started into other things to help you feel grounded and centered.

After you’ve done all the necessary steps to spiritually protect yourself, you will start to see a difference in your life. The steps will start to become a routine, and as long as you do your best to stay positive, you can live a happy, healthy, protected life.
