I am sure I have written about the importance of spiritual protection before, however this topic tends to be ignored.
What is Spiritual Protection?
I compare spiritual protection with the natural antibodies we have in our bodies to protect us against fight diseases, even during childhood years we have vaccines to boost our defenses against viruses and diseases, as we grow older, the antibodies get stronger and keep our bodies healthy by fighting disease when we come in contact with germs, if our antibodies fail protecting us, we get sick.
This is a natural process and we never know exactly when or how it is happening because we cannot see it.
Spiritual protection works in a similar way. By maintaining and reinforcing the “antibodies” which will fight against negative spiritual energies that come in contact with us during different times of our journey. If these antibodies fail, we become weak and vulnerable.
Spiritual protection is the way to give our spiritual guides the tools needed to fight negative energies before they affect us directly.
When is the best time for spiritual protection?
With spiritual protection, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
The best time for spiritual protection is when things are going right, when you feel strong, when you feel happy, when you are working to reach your goals, when you feel stable and successful.
Most people only reach out for the help from the spirits when something goes wrong, when they lose the job, the partner, the house, the opportunity and in every case I consult, I am able to see how easy some situations could have been avoided with the right protections in place.
This does not mean that having spiritual protection will make your life perfect and that you will never have problems or difficulties in your life, most difficult situations we go thru are meant to happen anyways and is the way we grow and learn, but there are 2 important things we can receive with spiritual protection:
1) We are less vulnerable during difficult times, it makes our falls easier and it is easier to recover.
2) It makes it harder for negative spirits and energies to reach us and create unbalances, chaotic energies and tragedies in our lives.
Just like keeping your physical body healthy is an everyday task, keeping your spiritual protections in place should be an ongoing task of anyone involved in the spiritual word.
Weather you do any spiritual work to influence others, receive or give spiritual readings, or call your spirits to help, the first thing you need to learn is how to activate and strengthen your own spiritual protection.
One easy way to activate your own spiritual protections is by working with your guides and ancestors and finding ways to strengthen their own protection capabilities.
Some people are more sensible than others, some people are born with weak spiritual protections and they must continue reinforcing them in the regular basis.
Every spiritual practice and religion has different ways to work with the spiritual protections, I talk about my own experiences and personal knowledge with spiritism, santeria and palo.
One way to boost the energies and protection abilities of your own spiritual guides is by preparing amulets; these amulets are usually prepared with natural ingredients (sticks, stones, beads, feathers, crystal) to attract protection forces to your realm.
In some cases, initiations are needed to get the person to a good protected state, it is hard to generalize, because every solution is unique to the needs of the spiritual guides of the person.
The key is to find the spirits with the energy, which is compatible with you, willing to bring the protection forces to you.
I usually call it a good spiritual hygiene, without spiritual protections, we as spiritual beings, are vulnerable.
Always remember, the protection is best to have in place before things go wrong, it will make it easier for you to bounce back.
I have listed few protection ceremonials in the store and it amazes me how they are way less popular than attraction or other types of work.
Protection, protection, protection, never let your guard down and your journey will be much easier and happier! It will make it easier for you to recover from difficult times, it will make it easier for you not to fall deep, and if you are struggling now, it is never too late to get you strong and to help you find the balance you need In your life.
There ere different types of protection ceremonials I do in my spiritual practices, however there is not such a thing as one size fits all, this is a general guide:
1) Overall Spiritual Protection: This protection is done with your own spiritual guides to help them be stronger and defend you in your everyday life
2) Child protection: We do this for every child in our family (sometimes for the unborn children when needed) to ensure their protections are in place and the child can grow up to be successful adults. I always tell people that this is the type of protection you would like your parents did for you.
3) Protection against spiritual attacks
4) Protection against your enemies spiritual and psychical
5) Financial – Carrier Protection
6) House protection – To protect peace and harmony in your home and family
7) Evil Eye Protection – This is needed for people who are more sensible to negative energies coming from others, when your own defenses are low, you are most vulnerable to these energies affecting you
8) Relationship – Love protection
9) Specific protection when spiritual work or spiritual communication is being performed
10) Protection against witchcraft – Any witchcraft done against you is as strong as weak are your own spiritual protections
11) Protection against sickness – If your spiritual protections are hight, your own health will improve
Every situation is different, there is no one size fits all when it comes to spiritual work.
