Psychic protection 101: How to deal with an infestation of parasites

This is the second article on a series on basic psychic protection. There is a lot written about emotional vampires; however, have we ever contemplated another form of parasitism, which is air-borne and invisible. A recent episode with moths and flies inspired me to write this piece, as some of the characteristics and remedies to ridding yourself of these creatures, is very similar to what happens on a psychic plane.

One thing that we never consider when we buy a new house is all the upkeep and maintenance of it while we are gone. We envision the spaciousness, the yard, the dog and the inner decor, but we sometimes forget that other species also want to live with us. Sometimes former occupants; as in haunted residues; and other times, various entities, that enjoy living off our light and energy as sources of food.

One such possibility is hanging around bars, night spots, night clubs, or places where individuals who do drugs, drink, or live a libidinous lifestyle, whether it’s debauchery, excessive eating, sex or spending.

Just as cigarette smoke clings to your clothes and leaves a bad smell, astral parasites love to travel. Hiding in the closet, where you least expect, they quietly wreck havoc on your auric layer, allowing for leakage of energy and

It’s common, for example, for you to go to a party and then experience a strange estrangulation or wrestle with foreign entities that evening. Those are the preliminary signs that a cloying spirit or thought form might have intermingled with your aura, while you were in a state of revelry, whether substance-induced or by proximity. Like seeing one moth, you disregard it, thinking it’s part of your hangover. It’s normal, you think. And even if you wanted to find out, who can you talk to you about such strange phenomena?

You carelessly fling it in your closet of hidden keys and continue on.

Then in a few weeks, you notice more moths coming out of nowhere, buzzing around the lights, that is YOU — and your energy.

They begin as shady acquaintances calling you after the party, inviting you to go to more parties, or seek to come to your home and hang out with you. They see you as innocent blood that they want to violate; almost as if they can relive their purity through yours, they invade your personal boundaries, preying on your desire for power, being different from whom you currently see yourself to be, for experimentation, and your desire for immortality through worldly ambitions and those individuals, whom you think are successful; to mimic their darker sides.

The intoxication is real. For that one night or several early binges, you do experience an otherworldly trip that is entrancing. So much so, that you don’t want to leave; you want to keep doing whatever it is, that brings you to that glorified, extraordinarily colorful state that you normally cannot achieve with your normal senses.

Then it begins to nag you to feed its unhealthier appetites, such as smoking, taking drugs, indulging in bizarre acts of self mutilation, thoughts of depression, anxiety and dread. No sooner than not, if you continue to congregate with such friends, these urges then become habits, and soon these entities not only start to embed themselves in your aura and space, but begin to take over your substance–money, savings, mental and physical energy, and relationships.

Even if you don’t continue, the guilt and shame remain and begin to infest. Then one day weeks later, you go to put on your best self for an interview and you discover an infestation has taken over your closet, and has attacked your best suit, i.e. YOU.

Even if you have none of these thoughts or desires, they still upon occasion show up from being around this atmosphere and these individuals.

What to do

First, we have to understand that empaths are easy targets for parasites, because of our Light. Understanding that, you will understand your proclivity to drawing negative people and situations. Instead of repelling them, they seek to interact with something that causes them to combust and intermingle with your energies.

That said, it’s not enough to be the bright bulb in the group. You must constantly scan your surroundings and body for intrusions. Unlike vampires who use charm and seduction, to infiltrate and drain your energy from these tears, parasites work on a more microscopic level, seeking instead to lay seeds of negativity to weaken the auric fiber and slowly ingest it.

Just as flies seek a watery area to lay eggs, these parasites look for moments when an empath has absorbed too much of the external environment. When you have not sufficient downtime to tease through your interlacing webs, these critters can nest larvae in the interstices. Unknowingly, if you are not teasing your layers apart regularly to cleanse you chakras, they can bulk up the vortices and cause tears and bulges and congested areas.

As earlier discussed, they are like negligence. A slippage here, a weakened will there; just one drink, one more swipe on the credit card, one unforeseen wanton escape, and little by little, an addiction forms, whereby the parasite, which now has grown into an attachment to the etheric body, slowly poisons the rest of the system and urges the individual to sink deeper into the habit until it becomes a permanent, hardened part of the whole.

Visualization and the Higher Force

Your number one weapon is your mind. When you are in a relaxed state, you can see yourself objectively, and tease apart these intermingled layers. Sending light is a common antidote. Invoking God or a Higher presence either by word or through silent prayer, can help push out the invading energy.

Visualizing a vacuum sucking the varmints and its larvae out of your space is the most effective. This requires the vigilant body scanning and invoking of a higher energy to assist in the removal of foreign thought forms and entities that do not belong. Regular and repeated, auric photos and cleansing thus helps ensure they will not come back once the body has been cleansed.

Salts, Oils and Vinegar

Salt baths and essential oil mists

Lower vibrational thought forms are easily repelled by certain essential oils and vibrational elixirs. When you feel overwhelmed, it is a good time to take a bath with Epsom salts, Himalayan salts or sea salt. Salt traditionally has been used by all traditions to stabilize and ground energies. When soaking in salt or vinegar, it is good to imagine the debris lifting and untangling its tentacles from your form, and then adhering to the salt, or other basic form, away from you.

Essential oils, such as lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus and frankincense, also can remove entities. They need to be dissolved in solution, so when it is sprayed into the aura, it can diffuse whatever inharmonious blockages or attachments, and repel them from the auric body.

Just as we drink acetic water to cleanse our digestive system, we can spritz this into our body to unclog the foreign debris on our auric walls.

Cutting ties to negative influences

Knowing is not enough. We must end associations with people who are negative, bring us down, complain, and harbor a loser attitude toward life. We can’t let them coexist with us. Sometimes they are family members. Other times they are friends that we tolerate because we are lonely.

You are who you associate with. If your friends are leading you down a path of destructive or simply not constructive toward your self improvement regime, it’s time to cut the cords. These parasites infiltrate through ears and eyes. They spread gossip, talk behind your back, create situations where you are slighted to suit their egos, and continually put you down.

One moth lays thousands of negative eggs in and around you that then multiply and distract you to no end with their destruction. Spend less time with them. Distance yourself and even cut ties if you must. You are who you spend time with. Don’t let these individuals bad habits become yours.

 

Store your treasures in bulletproof casing

Lastly, protect your soul by fortifying the aura with regular exercises to keep it vibrant and healthy. Knowing that parasites can eat through any thin membranes, we have to stop leaving our treasures out in the open or unsealed. This requires that we review all the areas of our life that we leave vulnerable to energy thieves and identity theft.

It is hard work ensuring our body and mind are nourished with the right ingredients to function at its optimum. The purity of such, can so easily be soiled by their proximity to trash on the Internet, books, friends, and corrosive elements. We have to replace some of our storage containers from flimsy plastic bags to glass mason jars with airtight seals, from porous sacks to covered tins and dry storage rooms.

Thus we should strengthen the Metal around our body and environment. On the surface level, that would mean the amount of gold we might wear. On a deeper level, it means we have to sharpen our tongues and be prepared to defend our boundaries from encroachment by loafers and those who want to take advantage of our virtuous nature. If being assertive is difficult for you, read a book or take a course to strengthen these psychic protection skills. They will keep us from being over sympathetic in situations that may harm or tip the balance of fair exchange against us.

Keep clean

Lastly, don’t wander around places that are spiritually unclean or continue practicing arts or reading books about rituals to tap unsafe, discarnate energies; or objects. You are only inviting in trouble. Once they see that you are willing to commingle with them, they shall seek to stay forever; and bring more friends.

The only antidote is what you fill your mind. Prayer and sacred meditation on higher thoughts and behaviors strengthen the auric body against ill will and evil influences. As you gain strength, the higher the tests. So be prepared. Your armor should be your infilling of a Higher Presence to restore and protect you, and should be reinforced with daily meditation of the thoughts and habits of righteous actions and living.

Take your pleasure seriously

In 2014 I lost my best friend and cousin Cathy Chiu to stage 4 cancer. We were shocked. Not only did we think she was improving, but we actually saw dozens of photos on Facebook of her enjoying life with her family in Singapore and Hawaii three weeks before her death.

#telepathynation #reflections #death #lessons #life #sacralchakra #water #selfworth #manifestation #lawofattraction #soul #sacrifice #honesty #hidden #forgiveness #expectations #cancer

In 2010 I spent two years overseas with my cousin, so I know her like a second sister. She might be in tremendous physical pain but she forced herself to look happy for the sake of others: her mom, our grandmother, her kids, her customers, etc.

One instance that exemplifies this behavior was when she received a health department notice about her restaurant kitchen. She was being fined hundreds of dollars, to which probably to you and me, would make us tear our hair out and worry. But I remember her clearly that day. She took the notice and shoved it in her purse, saying, "It's only money. There are bigger things to think about."

We thought she meant other management issues.

Little did we realize that she was planning for her pending death, secretly arranging the sale of properties for her mom and children's benefit, meanwhile going through multiple anticancer treatments.

She was the type of person you always looked up to, and felt was your best friend. Even if you've only eaten at her restaurant once. She smiled and joked, and entertained so many, despite the physical and financial burdens that must've weighed on her mind, that you would never know how much she suffered inside.


It has been three years she has been gone. Today is her birthday, and she would've been 52 years old; and on this occasion, where I've had my first vacation in three years, I reminisce about how grateful I was to have spent time with her.

I reminisce about buying her these expensive but fun waterproof sandals that looked like duck feet. I reminisce about all the car trips we took to Yangming-san, a mountainous retreat, to look at the city from above, and all the times she treated me to buffets on her special hotel club card.

When I was in Taiwan I never felt lonely because there was always her, along with students, classmates and roommates, to cook interesting dishes for. I remember her telling me how happy she was, to be served instead of doing the food serving.

During that time, I enjoyed the lavish things we did, even as I couldn't afford them. Looking back, that may have been foolish. But being able to be equal and give something back to her was important; and it made her feel less of a caretaker.

My cousin was my rock. Through my own health crises, panic attacks, money worries, family problems, she was this immense "Buddha-like" sponge that could absorb it all, and reflect to you: "It'll pass; I've been there." (And yet her experience would be 1000x worse.)
Sometimes strong people are their worst enemies. They don't allow people to see their vulnerabilities and let them shoulder the pain. When she passed, I knew she had been lying and hiding it from the rest of the family to prevent them from worrying.


Lessons learned: self esteem, life's pleasures, sense of womanhood, emotions

This is what I learned from her. She was a student of positive manifestation, and was a creative entrepreneur, having read books on abundance and successful living. I will post shots of her creative vision, Gusto Restaurant, in Taipei, Taiwan, to give you an idea of how brilliant she was.

She always lectured her mom and me about the importance of eating, drinking, sleeping, dressing and living well. "This is how you tell yourself you're worthy of the money that has yet to become attracted to you," she said.

Indeed, she was right.

This is coming from not a profligate spender, but from someone who was prudent enough to manage her mom's business out of bankruptcy at age 23, and who ran successful businesses for 20 years. In addition being a good manager, she was a good mom and beautiful person.

The only thing she couldn't do through manifestation work, though, was undo the damage done by her husband's sexual infidelity. They were high school sweethearts and married not shortly after graduation. Both hardworking, my cousin in law came from worse means, but he rose to the occasion by becoming a successful manager in China's largest shipping conglomerate. That said, he often traveled alone to do his work, and eventually fell in love with a prostitute and got her pregnant. This news alone was a complete affront to my cousin, who turned into a self-sacrificing and dutiful housewife after marriage.

She eventually forgave him, even after he left the woman. But she refused any attempts at reconciliation. Even after the divorce, she didn't accept alimony. She only wanted to end things peacefully for the sake of the children. Yet, I know, from having spent time with her and her children, that there were many years of sleeping in the cellar of her kitchen as a temporary home, before she would even ask for assistance from anyone. She raised her own money to start her restaurant, and schmoozed her way to becoming one of Taipei's best known Spanish restaturants, overcoming the obstacle of being tucked away in an alleyway no one normally go to, in one of the city's swankiest districts.

"Before the divorce I didn't think I had it within me," I recall her saying.

"But afterwards, I saw it was a good thing, because it saved me from myself, from being just a mom. Women should be independent. Never to sacrifice everything for the family like I did, because look at what happened.

"When you don't value yourself, your husband will leave you for someone that does."

That realization hit me hard. No one would think my cousin (this successful entrepreneur) would have been just a dumpy old housewife. Ever. She dressed well; she was always cheerful, and she was so glamorous, men always hit on her when she took excursions to China to see her ex-husband and daughter.

It was unfathomable. On the outside she lived the perfect life. On the inside, she hid so many truths.

I always wondered why she got into the cosmetic surgery business in mainland China and Taiwan, even though she already had a successful restaurant. Then I realized in listening to her stories, these women (like her) all believe something about them is still not good enough. Many of them are actresses, prostitutes, women who rely solely on their external appearance to survive. She told me how she found solace in helping these women. It wasn't a love of the products or procedures; or the desire to be beautiful herself, although, that was part of it in the beginning. It ended up helping her develop empathy for the other side: the woman her husband left her for. Somehow she needed to see firsthand, the cruelty of being beautiful to make a living, in order to come to peace with what had been done to her marriage.

Unfortunately, that forgiveness came too late. The cancer ran its course, while she was on a three week break from radiation therapy. She came down with something, and within days, she was dead.

How to heal the water (or sacral) chakra

She died when I was back in the States, and on my sophomore year of running my own business. Living with her for two years was the best preparation for running it, because I got used to the cycle of going to work in the late morning and weekends, being free for 60% of your time, and making my life about life entertainment. I was prepared for the rigors of entrepreneurship from listening to her complain.

If there was anything that I could've done differently, it would've been to have indulged her in taking a vacation to Italy. At the time I had a timeshare but I didn't have the means financially to buy the airplane ticket or spend the time off from work. Several times we tried to book it, but, like some other moneymaking schemes undertaken by my cousin, better opportunities in Asia always turned up, and she scurried away to make money, first.

I really regret that, because taking my family on vacation was the whole point of my buying (and paying off the mortgage on the timeshare for 15 years). Now every time someone passes away, even my dad, who is a scrupulous saver, would say, "Let's take a trip. Or let's spend some money or eat that. How many more days can you enjoy life?" The money that was so important and that we all worked to accumulate, isn't going with you.

I know that's a whole different mindset for some of you, but maybe one worth taking into consideration.

To heal the water chakra, look at what you blame yourself for. When events happen in your life, whether as a result of your doing or not, accept the reality that things happen and forgive yourself. By letting go of the emotional baggage, we can release guilt and other issues, blocking us from the true enjoyment of life.

In my cousin's case, she tried but never got over the failure of her marriage. Having gone to Catholic school, she had concepts about her sexuality that prevented her from getting over failed attempts at relationships with new partners, that turned her mind off to new opportunities, despite how beautiful she was; and in general, hampered a search for a new husband. She also put herself in a role that required so much responsibility that she couldn't take time off to heal that wounded aspects of her identity.

Other ways to balance this chakra include:

  • Learning to open the hip area, doing yoga or other calisthenics;
  • Engaging in free movement or dance;
  • Visualizing orange — eating, absorbing, wearing and infusing yourself, in this color;
  • Keeping the other chakras balanced; and
  • Letting go of any unnecessary baggage, emotional or physical, that cloud or poison your environment, thoughts and, ultimately, your body.

Conclusion

Despite all the trials and tribulations in our lives, the gift of a physical body is more than what hundreds of thousands of disembodied spirits have. All of them wish, if they could do it again, to have lived differently, knowing what they know now after death. Had they known about the possible toxicity of their thoughts and inclinations, perhaps they wouldn't let themselves harbor them. So learn from this story and resolve to take your pleasure seriously. We never know when it'll be someone's or out last breath on Earth.

Just CHILL, please …

Recently I went on vacation in Berkshires. This was my first time in the area, in which Kripalu and other yoga retreats and meditation centers reside. I was there with a friend who was on a budget. We decided to recreate the yoga retreat feeling without spending the “cripple you” prices. (1 of 2)

Our first day, the drive was excruciating. I must have stopped five times at rest stops, eating bad food, and checking maps, because our GPS was not working as smoothly as we had hoped. We shot past the turnoff for the resort, since it was poorly marked. When we finally arrived I wasn’t in the mood to do anything, except eat dinner and relax. Instead we had a heavy pasta dinner and entertained local spirits all night long.

The next day, we drove back to the Reception area and looked around. It was beautiful, but we were disappointed to find the coffee machine broken and the can opener missing from our kitchen supplies. We drove to Williamstown, MA, with the hopes of maybe finding ingredients for a summer cooler.

No such luck.

It was Reunion weekend and the clerk at the liquor store had run out of coconut milk. The alternative options were in Pittsfield, MA, which was 23 miles away.

On our way back we tried the local general stores but they looked either closed or unlikely to carry such a nonlocal item. In the meantime, the WIFI signal was weak and we couldn’t see the indicator on our iPhone, indicating where we were in relation to our resort. We ended up driving around in circles, looking for the turnoff we missed the day before.

Yet this time we found there were two turnoffs for Rte. 43. What are the odds?

None of this bothered me until we got back to the resort. I started making hummus on the VitaMix machine we brought. Suddenly my friend produced a recipe for guacamole hummus and complained that the avocados were not yet ripe enough. At the same time she also asked me how to sign into the resort WIFI on the iPad, but kept complaining that she couldn’t get on.  It didn’t bother me that we got lost, because, according to her, “I had to get a taste for how she passes each day.” I don’t know if it was a culmination of a lack of sleep, the Full Moon in Sagittarius, or simply being in a tiny, unknown town in the middle of a place where cellphone reception was spotty. It was when she played for me YouTube videos about ripening the avocados in the microwave that I lost it.

Being a native from a tropical island, the thought of putting anything in a microwave was anathema to me.

I had to put my foot down, in order to really get the weekend started properly.

You really can’t rush certain things

Maybe it’s growing up waiting for everything, but you have to put away all your technology when you come to a natural place like this, and start afresh. You don’t need to stay in a grass hut or a tent, as they do in upstate New York, to have a Zen experience, but you have to realize that some functions in life, such as gardening, cooking or wine tasting, take time.

Multitasking won’t get you there sooner.

Nothing is in your control, especially when you travel, but you can plan around obstacles by learning from prior mistakes.

Growing up with chefs in the house, I take into account such factors as temperature, chemistry, and ripeness, when thinking about flavor enhancement; and you just learn to buy things at their peak of flavor, rather than force it to ripen by putting it in the microwave (and subsequently, destroying all its nutritional value.)

This was so loathsome a thought to me, I almost passed out.

Turn off the YouTube and learn to unwind

I hate to say this, but so many of us are used to such a fast, urban pace that if it can’t be Googled, or if it can’t be solved by an ‘expert’ on the Internet, it doesn’t exist.

Impatience is such an ugly byproduct of our modern, technological advanced world; that it breeds stupidity in even the most educated of people.

Lifestyle is an art; when you ONLY live to get it done, you miss out on the waiting, the anticipation, the build-up, the four seasons, the romance, the mystery, the finer points of appreciation for a full, and healthy harvest in life.

We want to hurry up with the basic necessities, such as eating, partnering, job hunting and paying bills, to get to responding to email or FB or texting, that we forget the mindfulness in participating in a life force that is greater than our smaller consciousness.

Law of attraction versus mental, brute force

I saw this great quote from a private Coffee Lovers group in Facebook recently.

Others live for the grandiose status update:
* I got promoted.
* I got engaged.
* I got pregnant.

Then there is me, with pure delight with:
* I got one more add to my coupon before I get a free coffee.

When you only appreciate yourself for big milestones, you are teaching others, too, to only validate you for only the physical achievements that they can read about in FB or LinkedIn.

The Universe stops giving you pleasant surprises, such as a vacation on the fritz, to learn to be in harmony with something higher and more beautiful.

This brings me to point out how everyone talks about the departure of patriarchy into the Divine Feminine, that many Westerners hear about but don’t seem to know how to walk in their daily lives. We still rely on the computer; logic; information rather than the wisdom of our own experiences (i.e. learning from mistakes) to guide us.

My dad taught me that the quality of life all boils down to having a learner’s mindset. A childlike wonder about the world. He taught me that the greater treasure in life is to learn how to be content, while on the road to your next big experience.

If you find ways to take life in smaller packets, you will get more done and it won’t be so frustrating. Then your heart opens up and you will see the greater opportunity in your trials.

…  and in this case, he would’ve said, you have to WAIT until the avocados ripen.

Or just not get it done now.

And be okay with that.

Synchronicities are there to guide you; but if we ignore them and continue on a blueprint, either self-made or computer-generated, as with a GPS, we may end up at the destination (for e.g., promoted, engaged and fully ensconced in the American dream), but we may not enjoyed the sacrifices we made, to the quality of our life, to get there.

The dream hummus recipe could be a nightmare for the avocado

Ideals are sold to us all the time by the media to sell products rather than inform us of what’s good for us.

We don’t think it’s good enough unless it’s been systemized, analyzed and reconfigured for us, under some mathematically correct, engineering paradigm; or it’s been endorsed on Google or some computerized platform.

A specific example from real life:

As I learned from observing an integration effort in the last six weeks, a plan that looked good on paper (like a recipe) failed because of artificial processes and immature people. Factors included: people that are not motivated in the same way, are not wont to cooperate. Sometimes they are not motivated by the right directives. Sometimes they don’t have mutually compatible values, such as customer service versus ethics and compliance/control.

In this case, you could apply the metaphor of un-ripened avocados.

When you don’t spend time observing behavior (your own vs others); learning from mistakes; participating, instead of voyeuristically studying the attempts of others; and using discernment in the choosing both the ingredients (and the people) to execute them, your plans may cost you more effort AND bring you unsatisfactory results in real life.

This is why we need to slow down, take a break and meditate.

Because maybe you CAN’T do two things at the same time. In my friend’s example, you have to either hasten the avocados. Or deal with the emails.

And, in my real-life example, when the company continued on track with a plan that was already a year-outdated, the team with greater supplier relations (or supposed expertise on paper) was fired; and their work, redistributed to a more seasoned team with experience and better communications. Even this outcome could have been avoided, if someone recognized that what was allowed to develop naturally through market forces, was satisfactory already.

Activity (and change) doesn’t equate always to forward action. When you start to care more about the quality of your experience, waiting (and patience) sometimes is better than action for action’s sake. 

We draw to us what we are ready for, so ponder very carefully what that is; instead of relying on images or exciting ideas on the Internet that seem to be the quick solution superficially, 

Because Law of Attraction, combined with a resistance to change, will deliver it. Even if it’s a year or lifetime too late, and you’ve lost interest in that original recipe.

Savor the experience of life.

If you are lucky enough to have a time-out, learn to enjoy it. Don’t just eat. Taste it and appreciate its richness. Learn to cook. Feel music and not just listen to it. Play music. More than just listening, playing music allows you to express yourself. Sing. Gather with old friends. Take a walk in the park. Go hiking. If you drink wine, let it breathe.

Being receptive to what is, can only bring us closer to a better reality than following the ‘oft-times,’ clunkier efforts of forced-to-produce-results-now, type of mechanistic world.

Remember:  “The deep breath you just took to show that your problems are bigger than you, is the final breath someone had taken right now in his life! As long as your breath is not the final one, you still have a hope!” — -Israelmore Ayivor
