Why do we need to ground and protect?
In life we meet people that we cannot get along with and walk away
from them. On the Internet this is something we cannot always do and
this is one of the many reasons we ground and protect; so we do not
feel our personal space is being invaded. Grounding
and protecting does also help in our day-to-day lives, proving
useful in crowd situations, for example. If you are empathic
you may pick up on other peoples feelings or emotions. Grounding and
protecting will help you to avoid taking on things that are not yours
i.e. moods, aches, anger and anxiety.
Is there such a thing as an evil spirit?
You can get what I would call an unhappy spirit, one that has not
yet crossed over. That's why it is important to ground and protect,
so they cannot attach to your energy. If you ever feel frightened
remember you are in control and say to the unhappy spirit: if you
are from the light then you are welcome. If you are not, then go.
I have found that some people always ask for clarification about
things because they do not always see things as others do, and because
they do not have a stereotypical experience they tend to question
the legitimacy of it.
In answer to anyone who has experienced or questioned themselves
I would reiterate that most experiences are personal to you, and will
never be exactly the same as someone else’s. Intuition is a
powerful thing, as is self belief. Sometimes is it difficult as we
want to know that we are 'normal' and try to compare our experiences
To some degree I think that conformation like this helps, but would
also strongly state that our experiences are as personal as our own
selves. Our perceptions will vary greatly, and that will effect what
we pick up. When people have got to a certain point along their paths,
they find they trust themselves a lot more about what they receive,
but before reaching that point it can be a minefield of uncertainties.
Personally the best way I have found to help with this transition
is to accept that you have received something, but try not to categorise
your experience and make it fit into a certain pigeon hole. Accept
that this experience was personal to you and that you were meant to
experience it in this way, as the more you are able to accept these
things, the easier it will become for you. Also trust your intuition
again... if you feel that this was a certain 'type' of experience
then it probably was... just don’t get yourself upset when it
does not match others experiences of the same topic.
A few keywords I would give to those people who are experiencing
Belief: that it is perfectly normal for an experience not to fit into
a typical assumption.
Why is it important to close down when you are not working
Well you lock your door when you go out so that no uninvited guest
can enter while you are not there. It is the same with your closing
While you are open you are saying to spirit welcome come and talk
sit down and have a chat over coffee. While we all enjoy our friends
visiting, we do not want them to outstay their welcome, and we do
have a life to lead and things to do. If you let them spirit would
be with you 24/7.
You need to set limits, be firm with spirit. It is you that is in
control, you that is doing spirit a favour by helping them to pass
on messages to their loved ones. If you don’t set boundaries
then you are in danger of burnout, but if it is what works for you,
if it is right for you then use it.
