Isn't protecting ourselves in itself a way of creating/attracting such bad entities? If I protect myself, this means I believe they will try to attack me, and doesn't this in itself already lower my vibration and create fear?
When I have absolutely no fear, why would I attract such things, and why would I need protection?
Thanks for your input.
I also don't really resonate with psychic protection, either. It's as if my inner being (or higher self, or intuition, or whatever you want to call it) had a different opinion (I could tell by how I felt).
Keep in mind that I'm a newbie when it comes to "psychic" stuff, but the more I work with the Akashic record as part of my Soul Realignment training, the more I see that it's really all about intention.
I've always found that when I try to follow someone's visualisation or specific process or method for doing something (whether it be for psychic or general personal development), I often struggle. What I learned is that, for the most part, people share what works for them and any suggestions or recommendations they give you come from their perspective (which may be very different from your perspective). That's not good or bad, but knowing that really helped me when certain things just wouldn't work for me.
Methods and processes (such as suggestions for spiritual protection) are, in my experience, often tailored to the "congifugration" (i.e. the talents, preferences, desires, skills, and current state) of the person who shared it. Usually I try to look to the core intention behind a process and find a way to focus on that intention in a way that is natural for me. The more I tweak things to cater to my specific configuration, the more effective I seem to become (in anything, not just with psychic stuff).
I believe that a lot of people suggest psychic protection because, as Anna says, it makes them feel good on some level. Really, I think that feeling good is what it's about. Abraham seems to agree
. (That's a link to a video where Abraham shares their take on negative entities, thought forms, and spiritual protection. To sum up Abe's take on it: "you get what you think about.")
