If you haven’t signed up yet for this course, it is a MUST for any person dealing with the Paranormal, spiritual activity, and empathic abilities. (more…)
The second of three videos by the Paranormal Consultation Network (www.ParanormalConsultationNetwork.org) that discusses the topic of Spiritual Protection for people experiencing hauntings, Paranormal Investigators, or for people who are empathic, or hyper-sensitive to the energies around them. In Part 2, Consultant Thomas Durant discusses the reasons for spiritual protection and discusses the importance in being of sound mind using meditation, prayer, and yoga, as well as giving visualizations to help “ground’.
The first of three videos by the Paranormal Consultation Network (www.ParanormalConsultationNetwork.org) that discusses the topic of Spiritual Protection for people experiencing hauntings, Paranormal Investigators, or for people who are empathic, or hyper-sensitive to the energies around them. In Part 1, Consultant Thomas Durant discusses the reasons for spiritual protection and delves into the importance of health and wellness, how spirits can manipulate us through our diet and habits, and what people can do to keep their physical body fortified from spirit attacks.
This article, originally for my lecture on Demonology and Spiritual Protection, is meant to give ideas and insight into the many possibilities that exist when one seeks to attain heighten states of consciousness, connections with the Divine, or simply to keep themselves safe from the unwanted disruption of discordant or malevolent energies which may wish to distract or break one’s connection with the divine. I hold no grudges towards these energies because they are merely doing what I believe God has placed them here to do; to challenge us, each in our own ways, to be better, to become more Divinely connected (through spirituality, religion, belief) and to make ourselves more disciplined in promoting positive thoughts and emotions, thus raising our vibrations to match what some would call “The God Source” or what I would deem a vibration of heightened awareness and love. As I find myself getting older and learning more, I find that this particular section of my lecture is the area which gains more ground each and every time I talk. I’m hoping to give the people I speak with ideas that they can use and resonate with which will help them find not only their own inner strength, but a connection to whatever Divine source they believe in.
Each culture and spiritual path has its own set of tools and rituals when it comes to spiritual protection. Egyptians used stones to signify their practice. Carnelian and Lapis Lazuli adorned the breast plates and necklaces of the priests and priestess for the temples. It signified them as spiritual figureheads and aided them in their work. For as long as their history goes, Native Americans considered Father Sky (Creator) and Mother Earth (Nurturer) to be active participants in one’s daily life. With such respect for all things on earth, it was not unheard of for Medicine Men to ask their brothers and sisters of the earth (rocks, minerals, etc) to help them in any number of different practices. In more recent years, New Age guru’s and an array of spiritual healers utilize Stones, Gems and Minerals in their practices of balancing the bodies Auric fields, thus helping to regulate the flow of energy (chi, prana, etc) in and around the body so as to maximize the body’s ability to heal itself. In short, Medicine Men, Healers, Occultists and Spiritualists work with these minerals and gems to aid and enhance healing, protective, physical and psychical energies. It is said that the user of the crystal or mineral can implant or “charge” the crystal with their intentions or some goal that they have for the natural energies of the stone. Obviously it is in the best interest of the user to obtain a stone or crystal that has natural abilities on par with those which are intended during the imprinting process, but I have known Magi, Medicine Men and Healers to use any stone at their disposal if the need arises.

As people are becoming spiritually aware in these times, the word “Reiki” is becoming more commonly known. Many of my clients who come to me for massage ask me what Reiki is and if they would benefit from it. My answer is always “YES”! Everyone and everything can benefit from this 19th century healing technique.
The word “Reiki” is broken down into two words, “Rei” which can mean “Spirit”, and “Ki” which translates into “Energy”. Together, these two words can stand for “Universal Life Energy”. In the tradition of the Yogis, this “Universal Life Energy” is called Prana. In ancient Hebrew lore, it was called Manna. Today, many people believe it to be God or The God Force that surrounds everything all the time, connecting us to our Creator.
Knowing now what the word means, it is easy to then to understand that Reiki is a modality of hands on healing which channels the Universal Life Energy into those who are in need of physical as well as emotional healing. I have seen clients with everything from headaches to sports injuries, anxiety, insomnia, and even repressed emotional traumas. All have laid on my table, suffering greatly from whatever their ailment was, and upon leaving the sessions, many of them claim to have relief from their pains and emotional issues. The clients with deep-rooted psychological conflict generally find insight through the session which leads them to healing their own emotional wounds.
To truly begin understanding how to protect, cleanse, banish, exorcise, or even more simply communicate with any sort of spiritual energy, it is important to know what types of spirits you may face. This is not a complete list, but for most investigators or clients, these are some of the MORE LIKELY characters you may encounter. Most people believe in ghosts, the obvious first choice for other-worldly contact, but in some circumstances (more frequent each year), other forces which exhibit less human qualities, are found helping or plaguing some of the cases that we have dealt with.
