Psychic attacks and curses can occur either deliberately from another person's desire to do harm or inadvertently sent from the subconscious thoughts and feelings deriving from resentments, anger and/or rage.
When someone is experiencing a curse or psychic attack, they may feel as though they have lost their center, their ability to focus is impaired or they may feel like energy and power are leaking out from their body causing them to feel drained, usually from the third chakra around the navel or lower Tan Dien (second and third together) but also from the fourth or heart center where the leakage may feel like grief, sadness or depression.
The person under attack may have a run of 'bad luck' with strange, unwelcome occurrences happening frequently or their timing may be off causing them to miss out on important events. They may experience people avoiding or staying away from them or they may see agreements or pacts that they've made with others dissolve or be abandoned or broken for no apparent reason. Sometimes negative energy intrusions will manifest in the form of nightmares, strange obsessions or as uncontrollable emotions, persistent phobias or recurring fears.
Each of us sends out various degrees and qualities of energy into our environment via our thoughts, emotions, intentions and feelings. When these energies are negative, what we 'send' out there becomes a negative influence in the energy fields of other people or life forms including pets and plants usually in a non-conscious way. As people, we can easily make each other sick often without realizing it.
We will define curse as a negative force that is deliberately or ritually sent to the receiver/victim's energy field from the mind and will of another person for the purpose of weakening them, making them ill, making them off balance, confused or disoriented or otherwise doing them some kind of harm either mild or severe.
We will define psychic attack as similar to a curse but of lesser potency; a negative force that is sent into the environment of another via hateful thoughts, resentments or anger but without an accompanying ritual. This kind of energy is often charged with strong negative emotions and the person who is feeling and sending these negatives will often imagine doing harm to the others name or reputation, health or well-being, adding more potency to the attack by doing so.
Negative influence is defined as the 'spilling over' of ones own toxic emotions into the environment and personal energy field of others in a non-conscious or unintended manner. This is usually the case in personal relationships or families where one's partner's or relative's negative psychic and emotional energy is causing others to feel drained, sick or otherwise disoriented and off balance. I have observed frequently that many people with heart problems in particular are simply absorbing too much negative energy from another family member without the knowledge or skill to discharge or cleanse their energy field.
What is often the case is where both partners are locked into a battle of control or of wills, throwing negativity into each other with the intention of throwing the other partner off balance, making them feel vulnerable and/or dependent and therefore more susceptible to emotional control or manipulation.
Of course we can also 'curse' ourselves with worry and resentment with how much we hate this or that, this person or thing. All we are really doing in that case is pulling whatever it is we hate or worry incessantly about into our energy field with our repeated negative attention to it. In no sense can a resolution occur under these circumstances unless it simply comes about of itself in spite of us or as 'divine intervention'.
In order to receive or be victimized by negative energy from any of these sources there must first be an opening in one's own energy field, a place for the negativity to enter. If there is no entrance way such as a victim or 'poor me' mentality, then nothing 'bad' can come in to affect us no matter what others may be throwing out.
From a Taoist perspective it is imperative to stabilize our Chi field by sealing our leaks first, closing any portals to these kinds of influences. When the sealing of leaks becomes a regular practice, then any negative forces that may have been sent toward us will gradually lose their potency to influence us since there will be nowhere for them to enter, in that case they will rebound or 'boomerang back', returning to their original sender-owner with unpleasant consequences.
One way to seal your leaks is to use what is called, the 'tortoise breath', this is done by breathing as slowly as possible from the belly, until you feel your Chi field become more compacted and 'solid'.
Breathe as slowly as possible in an inaudible manner for several minutes, up to a half-hour or so, a couple of times each day, especially a night. It is a good idea if you feel that you have been cursed to do the tortoise breath right at bedtime and in the middle of the night when the negative forces are strongest. It’s also a good idea first thing in the morning when awakening from sleep.
You may also retain the breath in for up to 10 seconds each time to increase the effectiveness of this practice. After awhile you will feel your Chi field begin to 'solidify', and a new strength will come into you.
As a yogic discipline, breath retention or kumbhaka is one of the most direct means of effecting changes in consciousness. Breath retention invigorates us by filling the whole body with life energy or prana. In particular, breath retention stabilizes the mind and in turn seals our leaks while stimulating and forcing the kundalini shakti to enter the central channel. This will help to purify us and keep our energy field free of external negatives.
The tortoise breath is also one to use when there is a lot of anxiety or fear energy that needs to be dispersed. What the breath does is that it condenses our energy field and allows us to feel that which is essential to our being.
Taoists say that when doing the tortoise breath it is a good idea to get in the fetal position with arms and feet crossed creating a closed circuit in order to compact and condense the energy field in a more effective manner. But any comfortable lying down or sitting position will do as long as feet, hands and arms are touching or crossed.
Along with this, imagine a golden white light descending from the heavens into your crown, sun and moon chakra's. Breathe this light all the way down into your lower abdomen and navel, usually the sites most affected by the negative psychic energy. Feel this prana charged light neutralizing, dissolving and banishing all negative psychic influences.
The crown chakra is located at the center, top of the head, the sun or sixth chakra is in the forehead center, and the moon chakra is directly behind and across from the sun center on the inner pathway within the brain.
Intentionally created thought forms and negative emotions can attach themselves to their 'target' only if there is a similar thought or emotional structure within the intended victim; like attracts like. So the best way to be protected from these influences is to seal our leaks, heal our energy bodies and breathe in divine light and love energy thereby removing our 'attractors'.
Any thought or feeling structure that we hold within acts to attract more of the same to itself within our energy field so that the more we imagine, hold and receive divine light and healing energies to ourselves the less we are available to being attacked or influenced from outside agents or the negative intentions and thought/feeling clusters of others.
When dealing with a possible curse or psychic attack it is important first of all to:
1. Stay out of blame as "blame attracts more of the same".
2. Stay out of self-pity sentiments like 'why me?' Which is blame turned inward. Yet it is important to understand where the influence is coming from and how we may have participated in its creation. Self-pity in particular only draws more toxic energy to us in order to confirm and reinforce our condition of feeling victimized.
3. With appropriate bodily movements, like hands pushing out from the lower tan dien or belly, say, "I send all negative influences and bad energy back to their source and creator". Then imagine cutting an invisible cord at the belly where we are likely to be connected to the source of the negative energy and see it like a rubber band that snaps back to wherever it originated from.
4. Then say, "I am unaffected and immune to all negative psychic influences", doing a wide and expressive sweeping and clearing movement with hands and arms, then see the negative influences dissolve and disperse before they reach your energy field. You may need to do this many times before you feel relief or a sense of safety.
5. Imagine and feel yourself surrounded by a golden divine white light that acts to protect you and seal you off further from all unwanted influences.
6. Don't get into arguments or heated debates with anyone. Any form of resentment or anger will keep your energy body open to the forces you are trying to protect yourself from.
Instead cultivate being fierce, which is focused, intense awareness that has no anger in it or inclination to do harm. This acts as a powerful protective shield around your energy body or Chi field.
7. Deny permission for any and all negative influences to enter your energy field or affect you "in any way, at any time, by any means, for any reason", using words like, "no", "away" and "out now" with a commanding tone of voice, exaggerated gestures and fierce attitude.
8. Finally rest in thankfulness and gratitude, feeling and knowing that you are protected, safe and free from all adverse energies, malicious oppositions, curses and negative influences.
