Protection against threats

How to protect yourself against negative energies and outside threats can vary depending on the situation, and it often involves several different techniques to cover all bases.

Today I was contacted by someone asking how to protect themselves from a stalker.  She has a woman following her, damaging her car and giving her evil looks in the store.  I’m sharing my response here in case it can help you too.


I would suggest that you make a little protection sphere around yourself, your home, you husband, and your car. This can be done through the visualisation meditation I describe below, but can be enhanced by creating the following ‘amulet’, if you are able to acquire the ingredients. If not, just do the meditation – either way is fine.


Angelica creates a shield against harmful energy

Protection Amulet: Take a white cloth (or white paper) and wrap it around (a) Angelica Root or Angelica leaves (2) 1 Amethyst, Black Tourmaline or Black Obsidian crystal (3) a piece of paper cut out in the shape of a house, with your and your husband’s names written in brown pen – you can also draw your car on here. When you draw/write this, focus wholly on the items and persons you are protecting. Really conjure them up in your mind. Focus is imperative. Also ask the crystals and herb to protect you and yours from harm – this activates their protective energies. Wrap it up and hold it in your hands or keep it in front of you while doing the meditation.

Protection Meditation: Breathe deeply and relax into a meditative state. Invite your spirit guides and any protective spirits to join and assist you in protection. Now imagine your husband, your home, your car, and yourself, all in the room with you. Ask that they all be protected and safe. Then imagine pulling down divine, protective energy from above you – breathe in to pull it into your body, and breathe out to spread the energy into a protective sphere around you. Keep breathing, and visualise this bright ball of divine light surrounding and immersing you and your husband, house and car. Feel it burning like an impenetrable shield. Know that you will be safe; feel it in your heart. Do this for as long as you like – I’d recommend at least 10 minutes. When you’re done, thank the spirits for protecting you, and know that you have this sphere around you at all times. Any time you want, breathe deeply to ‘top it up’ and feel it strengthen around you.

Finally, one powerful trick I would suggest is that you send some love towards this person who is stalking you. She must be troubled and hurt if she is doing this sort of thing, and if you direct fear towards her, you are feeding the negative energy flow and inviting more of her into your life. But if you instead send love towards her, this high-vibe, caring energy can melt her negativity and help her heal, or at least create a shield which simply will not resonate with her energies, and she will naturally drift away from you.  Put your hand over your heart and feel compassion for this confused person, feel your loving heart and direct this love towards her.  Wish her all the best.  It will feel a bit strange at first, but it makes perfect sense.

This Healing Spell will teach you more about sending loving, healing energy to others (or yourself.)

Voodoo and distance energy

Anonymous asks: Do you know how voodoo dolls work?  Is there some sort of energy connection between the person the doll represents and the doll itself?


For the purposes of this post I am not discussing the Vodou religion, which is an ancient and complex tradition, of which voodoo dolls are but a miniscule aspect. 

Voodoo dolls, as they are usually represented in media, are often used to control or harm other people.  They can also be used for good – remember, wishing harm on someone else will only bring harm on yourself eventually – heed the Wiccan Rede: “What ye send forth comes back to thee.”

To explain how it works – since we are all connected through energy, we can affect another person wherever they are.  I perform distance healing on people in other countries – distance doesn’t matter if you connect through energy, which we can do through our mind.  Quantum physics show that particles can affect each other across vast expanses of space, so science and spiritualists alike are coming to understand that distance doesn’t hinder us in the way that we have previously thought.

When I send healing energy from a distance I simply focus on the person in order to direct the energy their way, but it helps to look at a picture of them in order to keep my mind focused.  Voodoo dolls work in the same manner – when the voodoo worker has associated the doll with a person, the doll then becomes a powerful physical representation of that person, which helps the voodoo worker stay focused on them throughout the ritual.

So the energy connection between the doll and the person is conjured up by the mind of the voodoo worker – to anyone else, the doll wouldn’t have the same connection, because the association wouldn’t be there.  Our minds are powerful tools!

We can use this knowledge to do some good in the world – you don’t have to create a doll (although you can if you want, of course), but you can focus on any person, situation, area, or even country, and send loving energies and intentions their way – and while you’re doing it you’re automatically raising your own vibration, thus inviting more good stuff into your own life – a clear win-win!

Until next time,
