One of the most important rituals for my work as a Reiki Master and Clairvoyant Medium is Grounding and Psychic Protection. In brief, it is a vital way of protecting our physical body whilst endeavouring to live a spiritual life. In my line of work it is imperative that I ground and put a psychic shield around myself so I am not drained by negative energies from either the spirit world, or certain people on the earth plane. Grounding and psychic protection is not only good practice for mediums or healers. It is something that everyone should get used to doing as a way of keeping their feet firmly on the ground and protecting their personal aura. I am passionate about helping those who need some spiritual guidance but it amazes me how many people have never heard of grounding and psychic protection. Clients will approach me as they need to know why they are feeling unbalanced and/or lethargic not to mention dealing with emotional trauma. A lot of the stories are the same they feel as if they are going around in circles, their head is full of clutter and they feel totally disconnected, as if they are not in control of their own lives. Once I teach them how to use such a simple spiritual tool, they start to feel centred and focused so they can enjoy inner harmony and make positive decisions about their lives.

How to perform grounding and psychic protection
The best time to perform your grounding ritual is first thing in the morning. That way, you will be protected for the rest of the day. As a spiritual worker I will often carry out the ritual again at night as it helps to promote a good nights sleep. A great crystal to hold whilst doing this is a Black Tourmaline which is a powerful grounding stone. It protects against negativity and fear, and cleanses ones auric field helping to balance the chakras and promote a positive mindset. First of all, make sure you are in a quiet peaceful place. Close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing.
Grounding - If you are holding onto any negative energies or worry bring it down through your body from your crown chakra (top of your head) and out through the soles of your feet and into the earth. Once you have done this, you are ready to ground, by connecting yourself to the core of the earth. In order to do this, simply imagine growing thick and sturdy tree roots from the soles of your feet and send them right down until they link with mother earth. You may feel a slight pull or tug which will confirm that you are anchored.
Protection Imagine a ball of energy over the top of your head which opens and sends a beautiful ethereal white light down through your body. Then bring that white light up again and around the outside of your body so you are totally cocooned in a protective bubble of light.
Cloak Sometimes I feel the need for double protection especially when doing spirit rescue work so over the white light that I have already put around myself, I will visualise wearing a large purple (spiritual fulfilment) cloak which reaches the ground. It has long sleeves and a large hood which I pull up so I am covered from head to toe in my protective shield.
