Those who come in contact with spirituality, face perhaps at some point during their development, the question of how and when to protect themselves. There are entire books on the subject. But let’s look more closely at what lies behind the idea of protection.
For me, there are very different aspects of the topic. Many times I see myself exactly in this point confronted with the paradox of being: I am the universal One and at the same time a very limited being, incarnated in a human body.
As the universal One I don’t need any protection, because everything that comes across is just an aspect of myself.
Protection during shamanic work with spirits
As a limited being, I nevertheless like to work without protection, because thus I can feel best, with whom or which I am dealing with. I can better perceive and move myself when I travel without protection into the shamanic world.
That works, however, just because I am not afraid of the darkness or dark beings. I can appreciate and cherish their work, they do or did for us humans. Until now I just could talk to everyone and that way I could find out what they actually wanted. And often they simply want to hang up their previous job.
But sometimes I meet very large or powerful beings, who sometimes make me scared and I hold my breath. In such cases, I break off the trip and relax first of all. I then realize that there is to do something for myself before I can go on. So first I work the issue in myself and then I start the journey to that being again. In some cases, I put on a sort of protective suit or ask my spiritual support to take care of me. But often I go without anything. And so far always the fear I had before, just stopped because I was able to understand what kind of being it was and why it does what it does.
Protection against humans
Well, if people can dock to me unpleasantly, I resonate with them in some way. Sometimes it makes sense to protect myself, so I can watch in peace at the appropriate topic and have the time to work it out. That way protection is something like a psychopharmaceutical, which ensures that first of all I can calm down again. But the subject that has brought me into this situation, I should handle. Otherwise, protection or evenly that psychopharmaceutical simply act like a drug.
We should also be aware that we ourselves have one or the other part in us (and from the perspective of the universal One, we have it anyway), which is acting like an energy robber. At some point we can notice that or sometimes we even may not. As long as all persons can live well with it, it simply will remain thus. Where appropriate we will be clearly pointed out, when our relationships go crashing.
Protection of your own home
When it comes to one’s own apartment or house, the matter is slightly more complex. Of course everything related to our apartment has also to do with ourselves. The trouble in our apartment resonates with something in ourselves. Those things I work out like I do it, when I’m in trouble with humans: I see what is the subject and work with myself and with the spirit of the place. Sometimes souls are stuck in the premises or nature spirits complain or it is about energies, which are solidified.
It may be that we perceive these things, because we just simply perceive them and thus we possibly can help.
The redemption of old issues is, in my view the best protection also for the own apartment. But if we, for example, live in a house with a number of tenants, the energies of many generations, humans, historical events, etc. are acting in the spaces. I am not authorized to deliver all these issues. In that case a kind of boundary is needed for the own apartment and I ask the spirit of the apartment what is to do for such a boundary. So it may be that, for example, spider beings offer their web or giants take place in front of the balcony or Archangel Michael acts into the connections of the World Wide Web. Such demarcation should be repeated from time to time, like a kind of spring cleaning.
Protection of projects
Just as I perceive it, a project has a spirit too: the spirit of a project. Also, such may possibly require protection. But first of all it works like always: That which “attacks” my project, has to do with myself, finally, the project is a part of me. So I also have a look for the exact issue and work it out inside of me together with the spirit of the project.
Nevertheless it is sometimes necessary to protect projects, which for example are suitable to change old social structures or create new ones, so that the old ones can go to pieces. Especially if it is a very young project. It’s like a delicate plant that germinates and sprouts. It needs attention, light and enough water. It should be protected from pests, so that it will be strong and can take root.
The way I travel to the spirit of the apartment, I also travel to the spirit of the project and ask what it needs to will become strong and at which points it needs protection. So there was once before a spirit of a project who wanted to have a little bit of breast milk. It was the goddess Isis, who has nurtured him thereupon.
Thus, protection seem to be not always good. It is more important to me to deal with the relevant issues and to deliver them. Sometimes I use protection like medicine to be able (again) to look carefully into myself. And sometimes the spirits and I create the necessary boundary for spaces, places or projects.
PS: I want to clarify what I mean by "truth". I take every single person as a creator, so also as a creator of reality. Thus, there is not one truth, but at least as many truths as there are humans. And to be more exact, we are creating the whole truth new in every second. So I request you to accept, what I write here, as what it is: my truth. If it brings you knowledge, confirmation or anything like that, I am pleased. If not, just forget it again confidently. Please forgive me for my English mistakes. I am German, and do my best! I am also happy about corrections.
