to "The Secret" and the work of Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, and others, we
now understand how powerful our thoughts are when creating our reality.
Focus on what you want, not on what you don"t want. Your thoughts create
your reality. Change your thoughts; change your world. But how do our
thoughts affect the people around us?
For many people, psychic warfare is the stuff of science fiction and
comic books. Superheroes do it, but real people do not. Unfortunately,
this is not true.
Our thoughts are powerful enough to create our reality. Our mind and
our emotions are our creative tools given to us by the Divine, and we
are free to use them however we wish. But most people use these tools
unconsciously. Are you aware of the reality you create every second? Even
knowing logically that your thoughts are this powerful, you probably don"t
go about your daily life thinking consciously about the reality you are
creating in every moment. It would be hard to do. More likely, you think
about it occasionally--during meditation, in the shower, or just before
Likewise, we engage in psychic battles with one another without even
being aware that we are doing so. We don"t see it that way; we don"t define
it that way; we do it unconsciously. However, ignorance is never a good
excuse, so I"d like to present the concepts here so that we can all begin
to be conscious of how we use our thoughts, and how they affect others.
We tend to think of ourselves as isolated in our bodies, thinking secret
thoughts and feelings that never go any further than our own heads and
hearts. We forget that we live in a universe in which everything, everywhere,
is really just one great being, and everyone impacts everything else.
When we think and feel loving, compassionate, kind thoughts, it impacts
the whole in a positive way. Likewise, when we have angry, unkind, or
bitter thoughts and feelings, these have an impact, too.
Let"s say you get really angry at someone. You may think all kinds of
things about the person while you are angry, which you may regret at a
later time when you"ve cooled off. Emotion is the intensifier of our thoughts.
It is an incredibly important part of creation, whether positive or negative.
You know the power of surging love and joy, both for yourself and the
people around you. Anger, jealousy, and bitterness also intensify our
thoughts and sharpen our creative powers, just in a negative way. So while
you are in the heat of anger, you may think vindictive or judgmental thoughts,
which are aimed at the person you are angry at. In moments like these,
you are sending energy to that person.
When our negative emotions and thoughts are aimed at a person, they can
embed themselves in the person"s energy field like daggers and swords.
Once there, they can be removed, but this generally only happens if the
affected person visits a healer who finds them, or if they become aware
of being attacked and ask the angels or other spirit guides for help on
their own behalf. Daggers can affect a person"s mood, well- being, and
can also cause physical illness if they are not removed.
We are human beings, and we have all thrown our share of daggers, but
we can do something about it. The answer is not to stop feeling your negative
emotions. This is not possible, and if you try, you will only stuff them,
which will hurt *you*. Feel your emotions, but learn to monitor your thoughts.
You are going to be angry at someone from time to time. When you get to
that place, own your anger--it"s YOUR feeling and YOUR responsibility.
If you feel you have thrown some daggers, see them and transmute them
to flowers. Send loving thoughts to the person. You have the power to
create and send daggers, but you also have the power to recall them or
change them into something positive. Use it.
You will also find yourself the target of a few daggers and swords yourself.
My wife and I were recently involved in a family matter, and one of the
parties lobbed a sword into my heart chakra one day--which is a pretty
bold feat for anyone. How do I know? I was driving the kids home, and
I FELT it. It"s as though my heart stopped for a couple of seconds, and
the world with it, then continued. Afterward, I was edgy and cranky and
generally not in a good place. We did some energy work and called in Archangel
Michael to help remove it. Some daggers are fairly shallow and easy to
remove, but if someone really has it in for you, it can be a nasty bit
of business to remove it. Removing a sword from my heart chakra was psychic
surgery in every sense of the word, and it took me a few days to recover
If you suspect that you have some daggers—and you can probably sense
easily enough who threw them—ask Archangel Michael to help you. Help
him by visualizing where it is and seeing it being removed. If you know
who your power animal is, ask them to help as well. Or you can get an
energy healer to help you with this process. Remember, though, when we
remove daggers, we don"t want to send them back to the thrower. We want
the daggers to be taken away to a place where they won"t harm anyone.
Archangel Michael will do this for you. All you have to do is ask.
Another aspect of psychic warfare is called cording. When we are
involved in relationships, we energetically loop with others. Sometimes
we do this in healthy ways; sometimes we do this in unhealthy ways. For
example, you probably have cords of love between you and your family members.
These can never be broken. But there are likely some unhealthy cords as
well. There may be cords of control—you want someone to act or be
a certain way, or they expect that of you. Or there could be cords of
mistrust or jealousy. Think of all the ways that human beings can interact
and feel, and you can think of a cord that could exist between people.
While daggers are generally a one-way show—someone is throwing them
at you, or you are throwing them at another person—cords require
a bit of cooperation on both sides. Growing up, we get used to the way
certain energy cords feel, even if they are negative. So we unconsciously
seek out people who will cord with us in that way. It"s a give and take.
However, once you begin to recognize the cords and to heal them, you will
change the entire dynamic in your relationships.
Let"s say that you are in a controlling relationship. The pattern goes
like this: you want to do something, and your partner doesn"t want you
to. The partner digs into their bag of energetic tricks and employs the
techniques with which they have successfully manipulated you in the past.
Perhaps this means a guilt trip, or putting you down. Instead of responding
to these attempts the way you have in the past, you decide to stop engaging
in the argument. You stand up for yourself, and that is that. You decide
to no longer feel guilty or unworthy, and you take your power back and
do whatever it is that you need to do to make yourself happy. You have
then changed the dynamic between you, and you can energetically step back
from the situation and view it from another place. You can even envision
that unhealthy cord between you being cut, or you can ask Archangel Michael
to do this.
When you cut cords or stop looping negatively with another person, expect
that person to put up a fight. They don"t want the dynamic to change.
It will feel uncomfortable to them. By changing the energy on your end,
you suddenly feel unfamiliar to them, and they will do whatever it takes
to get that "old feeling" back again. Resist the urge to re-engage, and
energetically move on.
Even when you cut negative cords, however, they can regrow. They may
regrow on your end, on the other person"s end, or both. Make a practice
of asking Archangel Michael to cut cords and remove daggers for you. Over
time, it will get easier to detach from negative people and situations
and to have compassion for them. This process is most challenging for
the people we are closest to, but view all such challenges as the healing
opportunities they are. Eliminating psychic warfare in your closest relationships
will only strengthen them. However, if you find that some people cannot
let go of the need for psychic battles, then the relationship will change
for the highest good of everyone involved.
You can give yourself some protection from the energetic slings and arrows
of others. Envelop yourself in all dimensions with protective violet light,
and request that the angels protect you. You can come up with a short,
simple request that you make you daily or as needed, and the angels will
respond immediately. Most importantly, however, don"t beat yourself up
if you find that you"ve been throwing a few daggers around. What"s important
is that you become aware of it and turn that dagger into something loving
instead. By being conscious, you can make loving contributions to yourself
and the world every day.
