The aura is described as a bio-magnetic energy field surrounding the physical body. It has been referred to as our “luminous body” by many cultures throughout history.

Ever heard the terms “thin-skinned” and “thick-skinned” and the need to “set boundaries”? Viewing so many auras every week has made me realize where these expressions actually come from. Are you particularly sensitive to the vibrations in your environment? Do you avoid hospitals and funerals? Do you have difficulty being around situations and people that are overly emotional, sad or angry? When someone has a headache, do you know because you get one too? You are probably an empath and to develop psychic self-protection techniques.

I draw circles and sacred boundaries about me; fewer and fewer climb with me up higher and higher mountains. I am building a mountain chain out of ever-holier mountains ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

My observations have shown that people who are very empathic often have auras that literally merge and meld with all of those around them. They don’t seem to have any distinct boundaries. They are open all the time to the emotions, pains, joy and anger of everyone they come in contact with.

Empaths literally feel what the other person is feeling. This can be an aid if they are seeking to send healing energy to another, as they can pinpoint instantly where to direct the healing energy. But, it also makes them susceptible to the more negative energies of other people, and also opens them up to psychic attack.

If you are an empath it is important that you learn early on, when you start feeling upsets, emotions, pain and other extreme feelings, to ask yourself: “Does this feeling or sensation belong to me?” If the feeling does not belong to you, then ask: “To whom does this belong?” You can then direct healing energy to the appropriate person and release these feelings, as they are not yours.

In the beginning, it may be hard to tell the difference between feelings that are yours and those that belong to others. Practice and awareness will teach you the difference.

Just as you set boundaries in the physical world, it is wise to learn to set up boundaries and filters at the edges of your auric field. It is also important to learn to open and close these filters, or gates, at will.

How do you do this? The best way is to meditate daily. When you do, also take a moment to visualize a protective bubble of light around your physical body. Take a moment and expand this light both upward and outward, while increasing its strength and power.

When your aura is filled with life force, others will show respect for your boundaries… When you leave your home, the best health initiative is to walk into the outside world with a grounded, vibrant aura ~ Dr Francesca McCartney

Next, you can visualize a band of violet light around your aura. This will serve as a protective filter. You can also visualize polishing the edges of your aura, which will increase the aura’s strength and ability to protect. Doing regular deep breathing exercises daily will build the strength of your aura and your auric boundaries. Your aura will be strengthened so you do not have the negative effects of others bleeding into you, but you will still be able to communicate, understand and help others.

By practicing these methods, you will learn control and the ability to turn on or off, at will, the degree to which you are affected by outside energies. You can still be open to perceive, yet have any harmful vibrations filtered.

The more we continue the Ascension process, the more sensitive we become. It can be a bit overwhelming at first. So, these protections and filters can help us get through the confusion, until we become comfortable with these new perceptions and sensitivities, until we are further along in our development.

My first ever mediumship reading was one of those. A nationally prominent attorney had been murdered and his grieving family wanted to know who was responsible. This particular man had a powerful personality in life, and he was no less powerful in death! He stayed with me and followed me around for days in my waking moments. He even invaded my dream state.

Why was he so insistent? He wanted his family to stop wanting justice and revenge. He wanted them to just leave it alone and let him be, as he had lived a great life and he was ready to be where he was. He wanted them to just move on with their lives and be happy. Their grief and focus on justice was keeping him Earthbound.

When I was 17 I had my first visit from Sam. Sam is my spirit guide who literally introduced himself! It was probably the most startling, yet loving, experience I’ve ever had ~ Derek Acorah

You see, from his perspective, he could see the greater purpose and plan. He held no anger and feelings of revenge or justice.  He was happy and ready to leave. His life had been full. He had achieved a great deal, and had a big loving family. He had had an exceptionally successful career. He was content. He simply wanted his family to feel the same.

This experience affected me so intensely, that it led me to make a decision not to talk with any others who had passed over.  But, spirit had other plans.

A few years later, while visiting a friend, I decided to read a book one evening, written by the famous medium, James Van Praagh. In the early part of the book, he began to describe how he got started in that line of work – he had been instructed to start a weekly group to practice making contact with the other side.

Much to my amazement, when I reached that point in the story, the lamp next to the bed started flashing on and off. Next, a portable land line phone I had with me (with the intent of getting a new battery) suddenly started ringing. How was it even possible to be 300 miles away from home and have a phone, with no battery or charge, ringing?

When one comes back to bring through messages, many times they are of a regretful nature. They wished they knew how they should have treated people when they were alive. They wished they had loved themselves more. Most messages are indeed about love ~ James Van Praagh

I got up, turned off the phone and checked the cord and connection on the lamp, and then settled back into bed to resume reading. Lo’ and behold…the same thing happened again, as soon as I got to that particular passage in the book. At this point, there was nothing left for me to do except to say to my guides, “Okay, I get the message!”

The message for me was that they wished me to start doing more mediumship work, which I had always shied away from. Sometimes, Spirit is very subtle, and sometimes it is more direct. Are you listening to your spirit messages? One thing I have learned is that Spirit is patient and doesn’t give up. They keep reminding us over and over until we get it.
