General Spiritual Protection

Postby Drea » 23 Oct 2017, 23:47

Greetings fellow Bards, Ovates and Druids,

I thought it might be wise to discuss some general protective practises.

It may be that I am a sensitive type but it seems on my journey here I have had already some interesting spiritual experiences. And in my case anyway it hasn't been all ponies and rainbows.

So I offer a few things that may be of use and invite others to share if they wish some of their
Safety measures.

I find baths in with Epsom salts and/ baking soda to be very valuable in clearing my personal energy field.
I also find there are many herbal allies.
Most recently I have found Patchoulli oil
to be clearing and uplifting.
As an added bonus it seems to attract women.
Seeing as I hope to attract a man I will have to work on that lol.

So are there herbs that you find helpful?

All my best
Drea

Hello Drea :shake:

That's a great comprehensive list....I must try some of these. I usually use lavender oil everywhere but especially in the bath. I also perform some visualisations to improve my personal space - a suit of armour really helps in some situations! I also like 'The Psychic Protection Handbook' by Caitlin Mathews. Have you read it?

Cheers,

Heddwen. :)

Greetings Heddwin,
I like the suit of armor visualization!
I had not thought of that.
I have read a few books on this topic but not the one by Catlyn Mathews. I am excited to hear about it.
I read some of Dion Fortunes book by the same title.
It was an interesting read. Come to think of ot I should read it again lol.

I keep jokingly asking the universe when my force fields and lazer guns are arriving.
They must be on back order or something.

Not sure why I need so much protection but it is what it is.

There is another book I want to mention but I will have to find it first.

All my best

I have some exercises for protection on my website if they are of any help to anyone http://www.yvonneryves.com/protection/

I also find the Australian Bush Flower Essences; Anglesword and Fringed Violet useful.

Psychic armour is brilliant too :)

Aha found the book I also wanted to mention.
It seems we can never have enough books.
Spiritual Cleansing by Draja Mickaharic.
A small but informative book.

Fire oak,
Thank you for sharing your link.
I look forward to visiting it.


Happy reading all

Yes like Heddwen I have found visualisation to be of help, before I found Druidry I had a knight based visualisation.
I have also found my Druidic / Gewessi version of the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram to be useful

I think John Michael Greer covers a Druidic version in one of his books. Maybe this one

Mind you, I am somewhat of a fan of JMG ever since the discussions on the proto internet alt.religion.druid forum.
Most dear is fire to the sons of men,
most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68)
