“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” — Buddha
As you reach for enhanced psychic powers, your soul is evolving. In the process, your own energy will be changing, hopefully forever. This is the nature of soul evolution. Keep in mind that it truly is going to take time and effort to increase your natural talents. In the meantime, you need to develop some powerful psychic protection strategies.
In the meantime, you should be surrounding yourself with the highest and most positive energies. There are also low-level energies and entities in all physical and spiritual environments. Some of these negative energies develop outside of us. Some are the manifestations of our own fears, patterns and needs. Regardless of where they come from, these intruders in your energy space can drain off positive energy and amplify negative energetic and thought patterns.
In the past, magicians, sorcerers, and alchemists developed ways to protect themselves from energy strife. They often used talismans, crystals, herbs and other objects for that purpose.
“In Venice in the Middle Ages, there was once a profession for a man called a codega — a fellow you hired to walk in front of you at night with a lit lantern, showing you the way, scaring off thieves and demons, bringing you confidence and protection through the dark streets. ” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
Since ancient times, people have been aware of these negative energy patterns and low-level spirit activity. As Elizabeth Gilbert pointed out, sometimes people called “codegas” were hired to fend off negative spirits.
White-lighting is the most certain way, not only to protect yourself, but also to diffuse negative energy. Just as the negative energy can siphon off positive energy and magnify damaging patterns and thoughts, it is possible to reverse this dynamic.
When you white-light yourself, you are growing and renewing your own positive energy. You are infusing your aura with a bright shield, or a protective bubble. This extends out from your aura to cover larger and larger areas that surround you. This is also known as “clocking” or infusing.
Here are a few simple rules to white-lighting.
- Visualize a White Light
First ground yourself. Allow your “energy roots” to center you and tie you to the earth. (Read more about this process here: Learn How to Focus and Direct Your Psychic Energy)
Now you want to see and feel your aura comfortably encasing you. It’s all right if you don’t literally see the aura. Just know it is there. There have been many photographs taken of the heat energy that our body emits.
To white-light yourself, imagine a comfortable shielding light growing around you. Affirm in your consciousness that no negative energy or idea can penetrate this energy field.
Don’t forget to keep the intention of flow present. As you visualize being surrounded, allow only inspiration and positivity to flow in. You are building a house of bright energy. This is not a cage.
As you envision the light around you, focus on love, health and happiness. White-lighting is not only to protect you from unseen outside energies; it is also to increase the encouraging and healing energy field within yourself.
Pay attention to every breath you take. Breathe in the light and exhale the shadows. Visualize a growing light around you.
- Be Disciplined
White-light yourself, whether you have problems or not. Psychics and energy workers set up their own white-lighting process before each client. Each of us interacts with all types of physical, emotional and spiritual energy on a daily basis. White-lighting should be a daily practice. It is an important way to begin meditation. It’s also wise to honor and protect your field of energy.
- Be Flexible
It’s all right if your white-light appears to you with a pink, blue or green tint. Allow your light to appear as whatever color it needs to be. Again, if you can’t see anything, allow yourself to feel safe and secure.
When you are white-lighting, don’t get frustrated or discouraged. If you have trouble visualizing, just keep affirming.You may want to repeat a positive affirmation until you feel comfortable. You could try, ”I give myself permission to feel protected and comfortable.” Or, “I am a powerful energy being.” Or even, “White light surrounds me and keeps me safe.” It doesn’t matter which specific affirmation resonates with you. Use what works.
- Be Intentional

Use clear intentions. This should come from a place of inspiration and spiritual enlightenment. Do not fuel the negative energy with fear. Instead, be direct and focused on the idea that you are nurturing and growing the dynamic life source energy. Remember the old saying, “You won’t get to heaven by running away from Hell”? Well, this is similar.
Fear has no power in the face of love. Love is the highest form of energy – not necessarily romantic, but love in its purest form. Your white-light will be filled with love and healing. Humans feel safe when they feel love!
Be clear that the protective field or white-light that surrounds you is filled with love and the higher energies. By setting a conscious intention for the highest good, the highest good can be the only result.
“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, love to complete your life.” — Lynnie Buttercup

White-lighting is a powerful way to protect yourself from negative energy. You can walk through your day transforming and repelling low energetic patterns. The light energy surrounding you is also reinforcing and dancing around within your aura. It will be a powerful tool that keeps your vibration positive. It is also a magnet for the energy of universal good.
If you are in the practice of white-lighting yourself you will attract more love, kindness and confidence into your proximity. Feel free to white-light the people and places around you as well. Energy healers do it all the time with their clients.
If you go somewhere that has an unhealthy atmosphere or seems to have a lot of negativity, white-light the place and the people.
When you continue this practice you will be able to feel and understand the development of the light as an energy source. So continue to white-light yourself and those around you. You will be creating a safe and spiritual place. But perhaps the best thing is that you will be spreading love, comfort and healing to everyone you encounter.
