If you’re like me, you may have a love for visiting all things haunted to see if you can photograph, record, or chat with Spirits or Ghosts. A cemetery is a great place to interact with departed souls and get your Paranormal Investigation on. However, make sure to protect yourself while visiting a cemetery so that you don’t bring any unwanted Spirits or bothersome psychic attachments back home with you!
Spiritual protection can be many things or a combination of things. It is when you either, call upon any spiritual guide, angel, god, or any positive universal power, use an energetic protective shield, or utilize an object (such as crystals, talismans or clothing). Here are the steps I follow to create layers of protection before visiting a haunted cemetery. See what resonates with you.
Step One: Ask for Protection
If you don’t feel comfortable asking God, Angels or Spirit Guides directly for help, you can say a mantra or invocation like:
I invoke the light within me,
I am a clear and perfect channel,
Light is my guide.
Step Two: Place an Energy Shield
After you’ve asked for protection, the next step is to energetically surround yourself in a spiritual shield. Shielding is an easy, fast and effective way to protect yourself if in an area where negative energy might be.
It only takes a moment, and it is done by asking your guides or angels to surround your body with a protective layer of light and energy. I like to ask Archangel Michael and Archangel Sandalphon to place me in an impenetrable cloak of protection.
Step Three: Use Objects as Protection
Another powerful way to protect yourself along with the energy shield is by wearing protective objects duribg your visit to the haunted cemetery. Religious icons, talismans, and crystals have their own energy and can help you feel safe, powerful, and protected.
Here are a few Protective Crystals you can use:
(All black crystals are grounding and protecting)
Black Tourmaline: Grounding, protection, dispels/transmutes negative energy.
Hematite: Grounding stone, enhances strength/clear thinking/common sense, focused energy.
Tiger’s Eye: Provides protection and gentle grounding.
Black Obsidian: A powerful cleanser of psychic smog created within your aura, and is a strong psychic protection stone.
Step Four: Wear Black Clothes
In varied spiritual practices, the color black is often associated with removing hexes or curses or warding off negative spirits by making you invisible to them. The color itself absorbs negative energy just as it absorbs light from the sun. This is a color also protects you from negative vibes.
I hope this gives you the tools you need to feel safe and protected as you interact with the Paranormal. Enjoy your excursion to your favorite haunted cemetery and make sure to say “Hi!” to Sprit for me.
With Love and Light,
