A sweet friend asked me yesterday what sort of rituals I do for protection. First + foremost, when your frequency is aligned with the Earth—the Mother—then no entity in existence can “harm” you at the level of spirit. Your frequency is measured by what you consume mentally/emotionally, energetically, physically + spiritually. What are you listening to, watching? Who/what are you allowing in your close proximity? What are you eating/drinking? Do you have a spiritual practice? What is your capacity to stay in your heart + remain open…or not? Most suffering on the human plane is self-inflicted whether it’s what you’re consuming, your lifestyle habits, or how you’re managing your mind. Osho said, “Mind can be a beautiful servant or a dangerous master.”
When I’m overwhelmed with the world, with my Self, or I feel on the brink of losing the ability to manage all the systems of the body, I go into the woods to give reverence for both creation + destruction, the combined foundation of all things in the cosmos. I pray for all sentient beings to be free. When you pray for all other beings; you’ll need not pray for your Self, or worry one’s Self with matters of protection.
When all else fails, I chant to vibrationally bring peace into my entire being. There are three mantras that I utilize as needed. Each of them are rooted in “letting it all burn”. To burn what is no longer true for us, or to dispel that which does not serve us. The first comes from the Shivaism/Hindu tradition, “Om Namah Shivaya.” Shiva is the deity of destruction, the Supreme consciousness + ultimate reality. With destruction—fire—comes a process of purification.
The second comes from the Tibetan Buddhist lineage, “Om Tare Tutare Ture Soha,” meaning to be liberated from samsara (cycle of death + rebirth). To remove all obstacles to enlightenment from one’s path. You are calling in the Goddess Tara to assist you on your journey.
The third comes from the Islamic tradition, “Bismillah Ir Rahman Ir Rahim,” meaning “In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.” Repeating it multiple times acts as a spell of protection per se’, asking Allah to veil you in the light from all maleficent energies.
Let it all burn. 🔥🔥🔥
