Blocking: Spiritual Protection

ghosts hand

Blocking, or spiritual protection, is something that my maternal grandmother taught me at a young age. The method that she bestowed upon me has been a staple in my life, as well as has saved my fanny, more times than I can count.

The premise of this post is to provide insight to the blocking exercises I use to protect myself from spiritual attack. Over time, I have modified them, preserving the core elements that were taught to me.

Blocking takes a great deal of practice, as well as patience. In turn, what may work for me, may not for someone else. That aside, I have successfully helped hundreds of people master the techniques, and continue to educate interested parties on this issue. I take spiritual protection very seriously. You may refer to my books for insight as to why.

Spiritual protection involves doing many things at once. Its purpose is to create a fortress. Regardless of religion, I incorporate a host of tips and tools to help ward-off spiritual attacks. My motto has evolved to be: The more, the better.

Think of your spiritual fortress as a security system (I used this analogy during the Facebook LIVE feed). Your home is the equivalent of your body, mind and soul. The burglar/criminal represents darkness and evil.

Sure, you can use a door bar to prevent a criminal from entering via the door, but what if the criminal decides to try the windows, or attempts to break into your home’s WiFi to steal your identity? Worse yet, what if they succeed in entering your space? These are everyday scenarios.

Instead of limiting yourself to one possible entry point, you need to think about complete home security. This involves the need for glass breakage sensors, motion sensors, cameras, alarms, VPNs, baseball bats, and pepper spray. Each has a purpose and function relative to defending your home – your body, mind and soul – from attack.

In my opinion, you need to do whatever you have available to empower and defend yourself. Pertaining to spiritual protection, everyone should have an arsenal of tangible, intellectual and spiritual defense tools.

Recently, when asked if a belief in God, or higher power, is enough to combat dark forces, I responded with my security system analogy. Having learned, and seeing far too much, I have come to realize that it’s better to have as many bells and whistles in the protection arena, as not every negative energy will act and react the same.

One thing is for certain: they (darkness and evil) want to get in, and it’s your job to keep them out. As a psychic medium herself, my grandmother knew the importance of spiritual warfare. Fortunately, teaching me to block and protect myself was at the top of her To-Do list.

So, how do you block?

In order to better understand blocking, one must first practice centering and grounding. These instructions can be found in my prior post. The post provides exercises that must be practiced and mastered in order to begin blocking. Naturally, one may adapt any of this into part of their spiritual warfare routine.

Once you have learned how to center and ground, blocking comes into play. This is something that can be done short, or long-term.

Before I begin, it’s important to understand what a fracture (fractured psyche) entails. A fracture is a weakness, or an entry point for darkness/evil to enter. Fractures occur with frequent intake and abuse of alcohol and/or recreational drugs. A fracture can also occur with sleep deprivation, periods of physical illness, and/or succession of stressful events.

You want to remain as healthy as possible when dealing with such things. Fractured psyches are the keys that open doors for evil energies to access to the body, mind and soul. Without fractures, it is difficult for darkness to feed on the living and carryout their destructive plan.

Basic Rules for Blocking

1. Center & Ground – As outlined in the previous post, this exercise will help you focus and protect.

2. Divine Light – Constantly visualize yourself surrounded by Divine Light, regardless of how crazy things may seem, or may get.

3. Show No Fear – Fear is one of the biggest access points of a spiritual attack. One must enter into these settings or situations knowing evil and negative energies want to create fear. Reaffirm yourself that you are stronger than it is. Try to remain composed at all times.

4. Stay Positive – Do not give-way to fighting, bickering, or the negative behaviors of those around you. This too, is one way in which darkness and evil work. Their goal is to divide and conquer.

5. Refrain from use of alcohol and recreational drugs – Save the party for later. Drinking alcohol and using recreational drugs before, during and immediately after an attack spells trouble. Try not to partake for at least 24-48 hours on each side of the situation.

6. Rest & Recharge – This especially applies to investigations and readings. Try to space investigations so you can obtain decent sleep before and afterwards. Dark forces and energies suck the life out of the living.

7. Natural Light – This is especially important following an attack or investigation. Try to find a way to get outside and absorb natural sunlight, weather-permitting, of course. If it’s too cold, then keep your blinds and curtains open and try to crack a few windows to allow the air to permeate your space. Note: This is critical, even in cases of extreme exhaustion following an attack. As much as you may want to sleep, you need to ‘air-out’ the negativity and recharge.

8. Frequently re-center and re-ground – Simply repeat the exercises and clear your mind.

9. DO NOT DWELL: OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND – This is one of the biggest obstacles I encounter when teaching people how to block. It’s only normal to want to try and analyze a horrifying, tragic event or attack involving spirit, but you must disconnect. Keep in mind: the more you think about it, the more you will feed it.

Prayers

At any point during blocking, and more so when standing in Divine Light, it is super important to silently, or publicly state positive prayers and/or affirmations when you are feeling as though you are under attack.

My most frequently stated prayers are:

Saint Michael the Archangel Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer
Hail Mary
Psalm 23 (The Lord Is My Shepherd)
Psalm 54 (A Prayer for Protection from Enemies)
Psalm 91 (My Refuge and My Fortress)

Additional Prayers:

To Be Free from Fear (New Saint Joseph People’s Prayer Book)

Lord our God, in You justice and mercy meet. With unparalleled love You have saved us from death and drawn us into the circle of Your life. Open our eyes to the wonders this life sets before us, that we may serve You free from fear and address You as God our Father.

A Prayer to One’s Guardian Angel (New Saint Joseph People’s Prayer Book)

Dear Angel, in His goodness, God gave you to me to guide, protect and enlighten me, and to bring me back to the right way when I go astray. Encourage me when I am disheartened, and instruct me when I err in my judgment. Help me to become more Christlike, and so some day to be accepted into the company of Angels and Saints in Heaven.”

Native American Chippewa Prayer (You may find similar verses)

Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds
And whose breath gives life to all
Hear me
I come to you as one of your children
I am weak
I am small
I am in need of your wisdom, guidance and strength
Let me walk in beauty, and my eyes ever behold the red and purple colorful sunsets
Make my hands respect what you have made
Make my ears sharp so that I may hear your voice
Make me wise, so that I may understand what you have taught our people and the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and in each rock.
I ask for wisdom and strength
Not be superior to my brothers, but to be able to fight my greatest enemy; MYSELF
Make me always ready to come before you with clean hands, a straight eye and good heart
So when life faces away as a fading sunset
My spirit may come to you without shame

Items of Empowerment & Protection

Blocking also includes the use of various items of empowerment and protection. This is a very personal aspect, so feel free to customize your choices. There is no limit as to how many you may use.

The bottom line: These items are to take with you, or have on you. Do not think of them as “good luck charms” but as items that fortify and protect you against attack. Keeping these items together while not in use, is also a good idea.

Items for empowerment and spiritual protection may include:

Charms
Crucifix*
Religious Medals & Jewelry*
Rosary Beads*
Mala Beads*
Crosses*
Stones*
Crystals
Holy Water*
Anointing Oil*

*Denotes items that I use.

Now that you have an overall sense of what needs to take place during spiritual warfare, I will briefly discuss how to deal with the issues on a short, and long-term basis.

Short-term Blocking

Investigations, House Readings, Blessings, or any environment that you do not live, but may visit.

1. Follow The Rules of Blocking.
2. Begin with centering, and then grounding.
3. Surround yourself in Divine Light.
4. Continue onto blocking by stating some prayers or affirmations.
5. Have items of empowerment and protection on your person.
6. Consider performing a sage smudge. This may take place before, or during, but is most imperative following a short-term issue. I have included instructions below. Please note that sage does not get rid of evil spirits. Its smoke only traps negativity and lifts it out of the space, or off of the individual.
7. If at all possible, avoid revisiting the space. If you must return, spend a great deal of time re-centering, re-grounding and recharging.

Long-term Blocking

Long-term blocking gets a bit more complicated considering a person may live or work in a dark space. As detailed in my books, I lived in a home that was a playground for evil. It ended in tragedy.

In this situation, you want to follow the same steps as short-term, yet you will repeat this at least twice daily (in the morning, and before bedtime). Whenever possible, you will also want to periodically smudge and/or bless the environment. You will need to proactively advocate for peace in the space. Workplace environments are tricky, as you may not be allowed to sage or bless the space.

Considerations for House or Space Clearings, House Blessings and investigations by a reputable team, or psychic medium are also a good idea. This may help glean additional information relative to the type of issue you are having, and thus a more direct approach as to how best handle it.

Understandably so, it is extremely difficult to live or work in an environment that has a negative/demonic issue present. One must always, always, always (did I say always?) be on-guard. This can be exhausting.

 It’s very important to leave on breaks, and expose yourself to natural light, play uplifting music, do whatever you can to combat the negativity, and once more: do not dwell on it. You must always stay protected by surrounding yourself in the Divine Light. Also, spend the least amount of time as possible in an environment riddled by darkness and evil.
In cases involving dark and demonic forces, make sure you contact someone who is formally educated on these matters. An online course does little to prove they can truly handle such dangerous issues. Also, run should someone guarantee they can rid you of the nastiness, as there is absolutely no truth to that statement.

Lastly, I will share my sage smudge instructions. Please exercise caution and use good judgment when performing a sage smudge. Fire embers are a constant danger, so proceed at-will and under your own discretion. You assume all risks.

How to Sage Smudge

Smudge For An Individual
*You will need at least one other adult to help perform the smudge

Items:
Sage smudge stick (White Sage or most variations, including Black Sage)
Decent sized shell, bowl, or tray for the embers
Ignition source for the sage stick
Comfortable chair
Receptacle for the ashes

Preparation:
Make sure there is adequate ventilation for the smoke to naturally dissipate outside. Please take into consideration small children, the infirm, and pets who may be overwhelmed by the smoke.

Instructions:
– Light the sage
– Have the person you wish to smudge STAND in front of the chair.
– State what you want to do (smudge the negativity from the individual)
– Have them sit down in the chair with their feet extended out and away from the body, off of the floor. (May modify this if the person cannot safely do so).
– Begin by circling the sage around the individual, starting at the base of the feet. Include the bottom of the feet if possible.
– With the feet and legs extended out, continue moving upwards.
– Have the individual stand upon reaching the hip area.
– Continue spiraling upwards over the entire body, towards the head.
-When you reach the crown of the head, state intention for all negativity to be gone and ask to seal the person with protection, positive energy, and recite the following:

To the Divine Spirit (or Universal Energy of your choice), in lighting this sage we summon nothing but love, harmony, peace, and prosperity for (name of person). May (state name) be blessed with good health, happiness, success and abundance. May (name of person) be a sacred vessel of peace and love. We state that (name of person) is now shielded from harm, illness misfortune, and negativity. Thank you for bringing the Divine Light, love and energy to (state name) and his/her endeavors. With the utmost gratitude, we thank you. In full faith, so be it and so it is as stated!

Note: There are several versions available.

Afterwards, it’s a good idea to do something positive. Do not discuss or dwell on anything negative.

Smudge For A Space

Items:
Sage smudge stick (White Sage or most variations, including Black Sage)
Decent sized shell, bowl, or tray for the embers
Ignition source for the sage stick
Receptacle for the ashes

Preparation:
– Clean and organize the space. Clutter and uncleanliness only breeds negativity.
– Do so on a day where the weather will allow you to open all doors and windows for an extended period of time. In addition to doors and windows, open all drawers prior to the smudge.
– Make sure there is adequate ventilation for the smoke to naturally dissipate outside. Please take into consideration small children, the infirm, and pets who may be overwhelmed with the smoke.

Instructions:
– Light the sage
– Sage each person in the residence. Refer to above instructions. (Please use good judgement for small children, the elderly, infirm, and/or pets)
– You want to start the space smudge the lowest level, working towards the top level, in a clockwise motion from the main/front door.
– Upon completion of the personal sage smudge, proceed to the front or main entry door of the house.
– Sage the door way in a clockwise motion. Move to the lowest level and begin, as directed above.
– Move room-to-room in a clockwise manner.
– When you finish in the last room of the top level, return to the front/main door and state the following:

To the Divine Spirit (or Universal Energy of your choice), in lighting this sage we summon nothing but love, harmony, peace, and into this space. May (state names of residents and pets) be blessed with good health, happiness, success and abundance. May this space be a sacred dwelling for (state names and names of pets). May those who visit feel peace and love. We state that this home/space is now shielded from harm, illness misfortune, and negativity. Thank you for bringing the Divine Light, love and energy into our rooms, or lives and endeavors. With the utmost gratitude, we thank you. In full faith, so be it and so it is as stated!

Note: Again, there are several versions.

I always recommend that a positive gathering or celebratory meal/activity take place afterwards. This will help foster positive vibrations. Fill the space with flowers, plants, natural elements, uplifting scents and sounds.

In close, blocking relies on the fundamental practice of centering, grounding and staying in the Divine Light. The rules are non-negotiable and really need be adhered to for successful protection. Adding a prayer or a mantra (sometimes repeated), as well as carrying items of protection are also an integral part of spiritual protection. The added benefit of performing an individual or space smudge will also help bolster your defenses.

When push comes to shove, sometimes it is wise to take a step back and heal. Attacks can be debilitating and dangerous, causing serious physical, mental, emotional and spiritual problems.

Never underestimate darkness, but always know you are stronger than it will ever be. Just be wise, and . . . practice, practice, practice.

Two Part Premonition: August 1st 2016 (unfolded)

Below, you will find a request for prayers due my premonition. The original post date of the prayer request was Monday, August 1, 2016 at 7:03PM. As you will find, the actual premonition had taken place earlier in the morning…


As stated, very early that morning, I had an incredibly disturbing, two-part premonition. This is what I recorded in my dream diary. Note the date and time: 


After learning about a ruptured gasoline explosion in Woodland Hills, I made the following discoveries, and posted to the Fan Page as follows. I reference the above Dream Diary entry:


Last night, exactly one week following the premonition and request for Universal prayers relative to it, I learned of the death of Vanessa Marcotte, of Princeton, MA. This was, without a doubt, Part 2 of the premonition. Here is the FB Fan Page post:


Incredibly sad. This is exactly what I deal with on a regular basis. I would like to thank all of you who follow from my Fan Page, for your prayers. Please continue to pray for Vanessa and her family, as well as friends. Also, for my friend and her family, and the entire community of Princeton, MA.🙏🏻❤️
