How To Protect Yourself From Negative Intentions And Words Of Others

May 12, 2022

Jealousy is all around us. Words and intentions do have power yet nothing beats the integrity and sovereignty of yourself, your energy field. Sometimes people say things that may feel like they are wishing bad things on you. Sometimes people truly feel resentment or even hate toward you and actually send ill intentions your way. Here is how you can protect yourself.

Say “yours is yours, mine is mine”

This is what my aunt, a master of Reiki, has taught me as the best response to someone telling you the words you don’t wish to hear. People can, for instance, casually voice the most negative outcome of a situation you care about deeply. Whether it’s intentional or not, if you believe in the power of words to manifest reality, you can feel attacked and worried about your energy being compromised.

Say this simple phrase to yourself and repeat it several times to stay calm and feel protected from their negativity: “yours is yours, mine is mine.” This means that whatever they may think or believe is true has nothing to do with your actual experiences and what is coming for you.

This affirmation helps you cancel out the possibility of people getting into your head with their negativity and pessimistic expectations. It is all theirs, not yours, leave it with them, don’t carry it home.

”I only consent to the frequencies of love and light”

Another powerful mantra you can use when feeling like there is some unwanted energy trying to penetrate your life. Whether it’s people just feeling or talking bad about you or trying to use some techniques to get to you, even if it’s energy work, this mantra protects you. Set it as a reminder on your phone to show up every other hour. Just speak this intention into the Universe. This is really all you need to do, just think about it, and you have this protective energetic bubble around you. Yes, our minds are that powerful.

Stop thinking about the person and believing they can have any impact on you

Speaking of realizing your power, it is also about understanding that your power is always stronger than anyone else trying to affect you. You are in charge of the way you feel and experience life. No one can interfere, unless you allow them. The only power someone may have over you is your belief that they can.

When you feel like someone may be using any energetic practice, technique, or black magic on you, the first step is believing in you being fully capable of blocking it all on your own. They may be using your fear against you. So the first step is getting that person out of your thoughts and discussions. Nothing can grow and persist when we give it no attention. So within a few seconds make sure to switch your thinking to something else.

Shamanic practices

There are shamans who can help if you feel like you have some heavy energy you carry around that doesn’t feel like it’s yours and something you have invited in (as we do sometimes). While I don’t have personal experience working with a shaman, I know that shamanism is a powerful, authentic ancient practice of using the energy and elements to purify, cleanse, restore our minds, bodies, and spirit. So you can find a trustworthy practitioner and give it a try.


There are also crystals and stones for protection that you can buy and carry with you or keep under your pillow at night. These are also very powerful items to generate a protective field around you and remove unwanted influences.

At the end of the day, energetic protection is all about the frequency you vibrate at, the thoughts you think, and the daily actions you take that shapes your experiences. So all you need to do is focus on all that and allow that wave of positivity, confidence, and excitement about life to brush off anything that is not welcome.  You shine brighter than any darkness you may encounter, so keep at it!
