Protecting Your Energy Field

I’ve been getting so many questions about this topic, especially since my recent radio show where we talked about Energy Vampires. During that show I mentioned some tools to help people disconnect from unwanted interactions with people or entities draining their energy through emotional cords. I’m including a few of the tools here, so I have somewhere to refer all the people asking me about this topic.

1. Ask for cord-cutting help from Archangel Michael. He’s got a fiery sword and he’s one heckuva warrior. AA Michael can cut cords like nobody’s business, and he knows how to find those hidden ones that you might have overlooked when trying to attempt cord cutting on your own.

One caveat with AA Michael and all the angels: they absolutely will not interfere without permission. If parts of you still want those connections, then AA Michael will not sever them prematurely. In the event you feel he’s “not helping you,” it doesn’t mean he won’t or can’t; it means you’ve got some parts of you still reaching out for the connection. You won’t feel much different if AA Michael severs the cords and then you immediately send out a needy, clingy, apologetic, or addictive message to the castaway vamp: “Please come back! I didn’t mean it! Please, please come back.” Permission comes in a variety of forms. When we’re talking about energy vampirism, doesn’t it make sense that the permission could be sent energetically?

Oftentimes people do feel conflicted about energy vampires, because those folks or entities are extremely good at finding your emotional hot spots, especially areas of shame, guilt or inadequacy. These insecurities become just that: unsecured entrances into your being. The more time you spend cleared of these beings, the more you can heal. That’s why it helps to ask AA Michael for regular cord cuttings. If you feel extremely conflicted about someone, then a single cord cutting probably won’t do the job. You might feel good for awhile and then thoughts of the other person begin to invite them back into your energy field. Time for another cord cutting. Eventually, you start to feel more normal without the connection than with it, but the adjustment can take a little time.

Angels always honor your own inner process, so please don’t blame AA Michael for you still having cords! The blame game locks you back into the whole victim-abuser-savior cycle, which makes you a tasty treat for energy vampires. Taking responsibility for your own addictive reconnection requests, as well as taking a stand in favor of boundaries by asking for repeated clearings, will gradually rebuild a functional and healthy sense of personal power.

2. As an immediate follow-up to AA Michael cord cutting, you might want to ask AA Raphael (literally “God heals”) to help seal up your aura. Think of cutting the umbilical cord after a birth. It also gets tied up and monitored for healing. With your permission, AA Raphael can smooth over any auric rough patches and fill in any holes left by those emotional bonds. Yes, they really are bonds, but you can break free.

3. You can also call upon Runic energy to protect your auric field. The Thorn Rune, also called Thurisaz or Dhoarnn, brings with it the energy of a thorny hedge. Remember in Sleeping Beauty how the castle gets surrounded by thorns so thick that only the right prince can pass? No one and nothing else gets through. You can use Thurisaz as an energy filter, imagining multiples of this Rune surrounding you on all sides and dimensions, above and below.

Thurisaz, Thorn or Dhoarrn Rune

This Rune acts like Thor’s hammer, repelling and binding enemies to keep them from attacking you. Runes are tools, and please remember that a hammer can build a house or smash someone’s head in. I only recently began teaching about Runes on this blog because I sense a need for such tools as people move through the intensifying energies of 2012. I operate from more of an Aikido perspective in that I prefer not to attack anyone at all, even when attacked. Rather, I like to disengage and transmute the energy into something more preferable. That’s how I use this Rune — not as a hammer flying out to crush anyone “bad.” Instead I employ Thurisaz like the Aikido technique of “blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on. This requires very little physical strength, as the aikidōka (aikido practitioner) ‘leads’ the attacker’s momentum using entering and turning movements.”

Please use Runes responsibly! They might look like a bunch of straight and angular lines, but they speak directly to the subconscious mind. In that sense, they create reality. Potent tools of co-creation, Runes can help you define clearer boundaries and filters, protect your energy, charge intentions and pretty much anything else you desire. The tools themselves are neutral, though. Positive, high vibe intent remains key, especially when dealing with energy vampires. If you start abusing others’ boundaries or using Runes to control people through subconscious programming, then you continue to vibrate with that victim-abuser-savior cycle. You’ll find it very difficult to escape energetic vampirism if you yourself surf off others’ energy. Like attracts like.

4. But Light also attracts dark. That old, opposites attract saying does have some truth to it. People filled with tremendous Light and Love do tend to find a lot of people and beings sucking them dry. The greater their connection to Source the less they might even notice the drain, because they constantly become so replenished.

For many millenia, the Lightworkers’ main job was to bring Light into the dark spots; however, we are entering a new time. In 2012 and beyond, Lightworkers need to model the new possibilities available to all humanity. This means acting more like a mirror than someone’s next “fix.” This means increasing one’s Light and sealing off all the drains, so that their Light continues to expand and shine brighter and brighter. Having a bunch of depleted or less than optimally radiant Lightworkers doesn’t do the job anymore, because the job has changed. Humans as a species need to step into their own inner connection to Source. By cutting off the easy secondhand supply, Lightworkers actually encourage people to tap directly into Source.

Lightworkers can still carry Light and Love into this world. In fact, they can do so much better when they continue to grow stronger and more confident in their abilities and Divine connection. I’ll leave you with the following quote for inspiration and explanation of why protecting your energy field has become one of the most important tasks for anyone wanting to make a positive difference in the world:

“You cannot get poor enough to help poor people thrive.
You cannot get sick enough to help sick people get better.
It is only in your thriving that you have anything to offer anyone.
If you’re wanting to be of an advantage to others,
be as tapped in, tuned in, turned on as you can possibly be.”
— Abraham

    Hi Laura,
    Found this very interesting. I have dealt with these same things for the past few months and I found the best way was to work on my own shadow areas and see myself in other people. Although I agree with the cutting cords, I ask for them all to be cut accept ones that maybe attached to my heart. The idea of this comes from we are all one and this is where my compassion and understanding of these people (we) come from. My vibration stays higher when I think this way. I see people as wounded souls sometimes, ones that need that bit more help and although its hard, its not as hard as the guilt I feel if I cut them off. It doesn’t feel right. Any words of advice on this is greatly appreciated. Please tell me if you agree with the heart cords. Many thanks for all your words of guidance and wisdom. :0) Much love

      Hi Michelle,
      I agree in the sense that if you feel guilty for cutting the heart cords then that will have the opposite of the desired effect. Guilt encourages major energy drain! The Shadow Work is definitely important, and I’ve written on that many times before. Ultimately, yes, we are all one, but while we are in physical form and dealing with people who aim to control rather than respect, we can still be drained. As a species we are moving into a higher vibration where this behavior simply won’t be able to continue. Shifting things on our inner level — those things we do or do not consider acceptable –will help the entire planetary shift. If you have not read David Wilcock’s work about Financial Tyranny, please do so. It’s long and intense, but it demonstrates better than most things how these inner patterns of victimhood and letting ourselves be sucked dry by parasites are actually creating a reality of exploitation, war, slavery, etc. As within, so without:

      Also, consider that viewing others as somehow in need of your energy, as in they can’t shine their own light, actually limits them. Feeling unconditional love for oneself and others does not mean becoming food for an energy vampire. Unconditional love honors people where they are but also recognizes that it’s ok to set your own healthy boundaries. If a child repeated hit another child would you just send love to both children and not intervene in any way? Or would you set firm rules about what could or could not occur on your watch? “An ye harm none, do what thou wilt” is a pagan proverb, similar to St. Augustine of Hippo’s: “Love, and do what thou wilt.” Love is hugely important, but true love does not seek to control others against their will. Cutting INAPPROPRIATE cords allows people to love more freely, completely and unconditionally because it frees us from manipulations via conditional love. … imho, anyway …

      If you’ve not listened to this interview yet, I also recommend it:

      LOL, lots of homework! You can also just do whatever keeps your vibration high, since this is really only talking about inappropriate cords, not all love relationships. 🙂



  2. There is so much I do not understand about the intuitive world. I don’t even know if the correct term is intuitive or metaphysical or psychic world. Do you know of any books that would clear up my confusion. A book with the title, ‘Intuitive World for Dummies,’ or something?

    Thank you Laura. I will watch these. Your words have given me a little more clarity. Much love! Michelle :0)

    Hi Laura,

    Thank-you for your article. I also thank those that made a comment and your replies as it has given me greater insight to help myself and others. Love and Light

    I read this in a book Laura. It resonates with me very much. I hope you don’t mind me posting, but I thought it very helpful maybe for others and to get your own opinion and any insights you may have on it.

    It is sometimes necessary to protect yourself from negative energy sent your way, or a phychic attack. In such situations it doesn’t matter how powerful the perpetrators seem to be, since the Creator’s power makes their efforts ineffectual. This is because when people use negative energy it is all ego related and therefore of limited power. So by summoning as much personal power as possible-by simply being present, grounded and centered-and then asking your power animals, guides, angels, and the Powers to come to your aid, you can protect yourself.
    Most human beings are in fact constantly protected by their angels and power animals, and every individual has the ability to open and shut the doors to negative energy. One way people with evil intent operate is by tricking you into believing they already have control over you. When you take their hook, believing them, you open the doors to their influence. Since you have free will, your guides and angels will not stop you from taking action, even if its wrong action.
    The doorway to allowing negativity in is fear and resistance. If you are fearful of such persons or entities, you energetically establish a connection with them, ( feeding) them. By contrast, love, light, and laughter are painful to them, especially if you laugh at them. And indeed, compared to the powers of the universe and the creator, they are pitiful and laughable, however powerful or fear provoking they may seem. It is therefore important to remember that all negative energy sent your way is powerless unless it finds a portal into your psyche through fear and resistance.

    I hope you didn’t mind me putting all that on your blog Laura, it just seemed important.
    love, light and blessings to you
    Michelle :0)

      Yes, that is good advice and awareness. Just to make a distinction, my original post is about energy draining out not so called “bad” energy being sent your way. Even the aikido comment is more about keeping the cords and filter clear so as not to inadvertently be giving energy away in unhelpful ways. 🙂



  6. Hey Laura.. thanks so much for your posts.. I am really interested to know more about Runes… what would you recommend?? Much Aroha Chalice x



    • Posted by laurabruno on February 24, 2012 at 10:21 pm

      You’re welcome. Good to hear from you! To start for you, I would suggest the book “The Runes of Elfland.” I think you’d enjoy it! This one contains some old faery lore mixed in with the Runes themselves, and the artwork by Brian Froud is lovely as usual. Robert H. Blum’s books on Runes often come with a set of Runes, so that’s also a good beginning spot. I learned much of what I know from a Druid who made me promise not to pass along his work. I’ve also studied some information online and compared and contrasted with my notebook from the Druid, plus experimented with painting and embedding Runes into my portal doors. Runes begin to speak with you, and you learn as you go. 🙂 Anyway, the Froud and Blum books are good places to start. Aloha blessings! xx



  7. great thanks will look into them.. interestingly I am making gateways on my section.. may tune in a bit more re the runes… its such fun! Loving the magic when all the other bits dont get in the way.. Have a gorgeous day..xx
