It is very easy to protect yourself.
All you need to do is visualise a white light in the centre of your chest. Visualise this white light getting bigger and brighter until it covers your whole body and you are cocooned in a pyramid or egg of white light so bright that it can be seen for miles!
This white light covers you from top to toe and nothing can penetrate it. Ask in your head for protection and thatís it.
You can do this at any time. Not just when you are going to meditate. Do this when you feel miserable. Do it when you are angry. Do this when you are depressed. Just concentrate really hard on that white light and it will be there.
You will find that when you are sad or angry it will be harder to find. This is because you are opening yourself up to negative energy. This is the most important time to do it.
Anyone can do this. You just have to choose to. You have taken the first step. You have read this far!!
