How To Protect Yourself From Psychic Attacks, Spirits, and Dark Entities

spiritual attack

A psychic attack is a mental intrusion into your energetic space that can cause physical symptoms such as feeling weak, lethargic, unhappy, and illness. Psychic attacks can manifest itself while dreaming or while you’re awake, and often results in your energy plummeting.

People can cause a psychic attack in different ways, and it’s not always intentional. For example, if someone gossips about you, they might think that it is harmless. However, it can manifest as a psychic attack in your world.

An example of this is feeling your ears burn when someone talks about you. Similarly, someone backstabbing you in conversation can cause a stabbing pain in your back. Motivations for a psychic attack can range from subconscious jealousy to deliberate experiments with the shadow world.

Fortunately, it’s possible to stop spiritual attacks and minimize the effects when they do occur. In this article, we’ll cover six ways to protect yourself from psychic attacks.

How To Stop A Psychic Attack and Protect Yourself Spiritually

Clear Bad Energy

Plant medicine is a strong ally for clearing negative energy.  Burning sage is very popular, but you can also use:

  • Rosemary
  • Cedar
  • Yerba santa
  • Resins like frankincense and myrrh
  • Palo santo
  • Sandalwood

Brush the smoke from the plant medicine around your body and house. Pay particular attention to the bedroom if you are experiencing attacks in the dream world. Invite in light and positive energy.

To help get rid of negative energies, repeat affirmations such as:

  • I am loved.
  • I am protected.
  • I am light, casting out darkness.
  • I choose faith over fear.
  • I am surrounded by people who love and support me.
  • I am divinely protected at all times.


bad relationship

Cord cutting is another great tool for psychic attack protection.  Relationships and attachments that no longer serve us can cause a lot of pain.

Cord cutting is a way to cut unhealthy ties between you and another person. After a cord-cutting, that person can no longer influence your psyche. It’s like withdrawing your permission for them to be in your world.

Practice this exercise before bed.

Imagine a cord that originates from your belly and connects to the other person. Now, picture yourself cutting the tie with a pair of scissors. Say, “I release the emotional attachment to (the person’s name).”

Surround Yourself in White Light

White light is the opposite of darkness and energy manipulation. It can act as a bubble to protect you from harmful emotions and other negative energies.

  1. The first step is visualizing your body surrounded by white light. However, before that, you need to ground yourself. Sit with your feet firmly planted on the ground.
  2. The next step is relaxing fully. Roll your shoulders. Clench parts of your body, then release them.
  3. Step three is aligning your breathing. Take at least three long, full breaths.
  4. Step four is to imagine white light swirling around you. Picture the light wrapping around and entering your body through the crown of your head. Allow this energy to soak into your whole being.

Strengthen Your Aura

improve your aura

Auras are a field of energy around your body. When your aura is strong, it acts as a protective shield, stopping negativity.People who  can see auras view them as different colors.

To remove negative energy from your aura, imagine it as a rainbow surrounding you. A single color may be more intense than the others, so focus on that color.

Picture your aura repelling negative energy and letting in positive energy.

You can also strengthen your aura by:

  • Spending time in nature, particularly on sunny days.
  • Swimming in the ocean or taking a spiritual cleansing bath.
  • Listening to sound meditation featuring singing bowls.

Dream Journal

A dream journal can help in repelling psychic attacks that manifest at night. When you wake every morning, write down your dreams. The act of writing will take some of the power away from psychic attack nightmares.

Before you go to bed, use your dream journal to document your intentions for sleep. Ask that your dreams be of love and light. Request that the universe, God, or your spirit guides protect you during the night.

If you have trouble sleeping, play a relaxing meditation after you get into bed. This meditation will also help guide your dreams in a positive direction.

Use Crystals

Crystals are an excellent tool for preventing psychic attacks. For everyday protection, wear or carry them wherever you go.

Program your crystal for a specific purpose by holding it and focusing on your intention.The best crystals to use to prevent psychic attacks are:

  • Hematite for grounding and balancing your energy
  • Amethyst for cleansing the aura and drawing in divine energy
  • Black tourmaline for general all-round protection
  • Dragon’s Eye for protection from curses
  • Black obsidian for creating a shield around your aura
  • Tibetan black quartz for its purifying energy
  • Garnet for burning harmful energies

Ask Your Spirit Guides For Help

Each one of us has personal spirit guides. These could be ancestors or higher beings that act in our best interests. While some people hear or see their spirit guides, others simply feel their presence.

Your spirit guides can help you solve problems and choose faith over fear. During psychic attacks, they can send you signs to take the right direction.

You can connect with your spirit guides through meditation. You should also try and be open to their guidance at any time. They might pop up when you need them the most.

Final Thoughts

Psychic attacks affect people differently. Empaths or people who are highly sensitive can be more vulnerable.

These people, in particular, need to maintain their energy field consciously to prevent others from bringing them down, inadvertently or not.

In this article, I’ve shared practical and effective ways to repel psychic attacks from energy vampires and others. If these techniques aren’t working, do not hesitate to get professional help. Seek recommendations for a holistic medical professional, a kinesiologist, reiki healer, or psychic.
