Anyone exploring a past life, using path working or shamanic journeys or experimenting with the psyche should seriously consider psychic protection. This prepares us for the work in hand and helps to keep us 'grounded' afterwards. There are many ways that we can protect ourselves and I will show you a few of these, but the one we will use on our journey into the past is Stepping Into The Light. If you don't feel comfortable with this then you can substitute for any of the other methods described, or your personal preference, but PLEASE do not take the journey unprotected.
Stepping Into The Light
Visualize yourself in a long dark tunnel. If you can't visualize, just imagine, feel or sense yourself here. It's a large tunnel with plenty of space and at the end of the tunnel is a small, white light. You are floating headlong through this tunnel, speeding towards the white light. It is somewhat cold, but that doesn't bother you for you know that you are safe. And as you move down through the tunnel you draw closer and closer to the white light, and as you draw closer and closer to the white light, the white light becomes bigger and brighter, bigger and brighter, bigger and bigger, brighter and whiter, until you are right up to the bright, white light, the bright, white light just in front of you. You are no longer floating, you are standing, but if feels as though you're stepping on soft, fluffy clouds which gradually evaporate into the path upon which you stand. Now, I will count to three, and at the count of three I want you to Step Into The Light.
One. Two. Three. (Pause).
You are now standing In The Light. It is a pure, white light. Feel the light streaming down through the crown of your head. Feel the white light being drawn downwards, through the body, the head, the neck, the shoulders and arms, the chest, the stomach and thighs and legs and feet. The beautiful bright white light is in you. You are In The Light. You are The Light.
The Light is Love and You are The Light. You are Love. You are protected by your own positive psychic energy field. Your beautiful white Light. You are In The Light and The Light is in you.
Feel the white light cleansing your whole body, your whole mind and your spirit. Feel the beautiful white light lifting away any impure thoughts or feelings. Feel the healing energy of the white light. This is your light. You are the light. You are protected by your own positive psychic energy, your light, your beautiful bright, white light.
Remain in the light for a little while longer, feeling the healing energy of the Light. Feeling cleansed and thoroughly protected from any negative thought forms which you may or may not encounter in your spiritual adventure or your physical life. You carry the white light within you to guide you through the journey you are about to take.
