The Truth About Negative Energy – And How To Protect Yourself From It


One of the interesting things about being a medium is how it virtually erases your fear of anything related to ghosts, spirits, and the afterlife. Many people think it’s just the opposite. They worry that seeing a medium will open up a portal that lets ghosts and malignant energy through. I can assure you, that is not true. Just like with so many things in life, the more you understand something and the more time you spend around it, the less scary it becomes.


Mediumship and Negative Energy


Mediumship couldn’t be more far removed from ghost stories and horror movies. Take it from me, connecting someone with a loved one who has passed over is the most positive, light-filled, healing experience you can imagine.


Is there negative energy? Sure! Have I ever sensed a malignant spirit? Yes, but they’re extremely rare.


It’s easy to protect yourself from those rare spirits that could harm you. They won’t come after you unless you seek them out – and going to a medium with the intent of connecting with someone you love doesn’t fall into that category. If you’re worried about that, just watch your intentions, keep your energy light, and to play it safe, don’t mess around with spells, the occult, or Ouija boards.


The majority of the time, negative energy has nothing to do with ghosts, spirits, or mediumship. My mom always said, “Don’t worry about spirits, it’s the living you have to watch out for.”


Protecting Yourself From Darkness


Even though negative energy can’t hurt you when your own energy is positive, there may be times when you feel yourself weighed down by something that feels dark and heavy. When that happens, one of these might be the culprit:


World Events


There may be events happening in the world that you allow to scare or worry you. When things you can’t control are keeping you up at night, the best way to deal with them is to unplug for a while, take a break from the news and social media, and focus on positive people and things in your life. And if that sounds like you’re putting your head in the sand, you can always do your part to spread light and kindness whenever possible.


Energy Vampires


Or maybe the “attack” is a little closer to home…you may have heard of “energy vampires” – people who drain your life force and make you feel exhausted and overwhelmed. Energy vampires are not ghosts or any other supernatural being. They might be family members, co-workers, or neighbors, and while they are toxic, the good news is that if you’re aware enough to recognize an energy vampire when you see one you can protect yourself.


Dark Places


Even though hauntings are rare, there are some places that hold residual darkness. I share a few examples in my book We Never Die: Secrets of the Afterlife. There were cases when I was called in to remove a restless soul whose energy lingered. They scared a few people, but I was able to “air out” the areas affected and replace the dark with light.


Protecting Your Energy


Whatever the source, there are a few things you can do to give yourself a little extra protection from darkness:


  • Imagine a mirrored wall around you, forming a protective barrier and reflecting negative energy away from you.
  • Get to know your angels and guides and call upon them to protect you.
  • Clear stagnant energy out of any living space that feels uncomfortable to you by burning sage. It really works!
  • Take a few steps to infuse spaces that are new to you with your own energy. I like to personalize hotel rooms by putting a photo of Alexa and our two cats on the nightstand, and by playing some of my favorite disco tunes.
  • When all else fails, open the windows and let the sunshine and fresh air in.


Be The Light!


One thing to remember is that darkness attracts darkness, and light attracts light. The more you focus on the positive, and make yourself a source of kindness and positivity, the less room you have for negative energy of any kind. If you think you can’t generate enough light to drive away evil, think again. It’s like Mahatma Gandhi said, “Even a single lamp dispels the deepest darkness.”


Connecting Through a Psychic Medium 

One of the best ways to learn about heaven and the afterlife is by connecting with a psychic medium. With every reading that I do, I am always amazed at how much the spirit world shares through their messages. During readings they will come through and show me who they are with, what they are doing, and sometimes even give me a glimpse into heaven. This is the reason why I love giving readings. I cannot tell you how many people;e come to me scared and nervous and leave feeling uplifted and comforted knowing that their loved ones are safe & at peace.
