How to Know If You Are Being Psychically Attacked & What to Do About It
What is a psychic attack
A psychic attack is negative energy that is directed at a person with the conscious or unconscious intention to
The harm can be sent to an individual’s mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual state …
It is important to know that these thought forms can be sent consciously or unconsciously.
In the previous article, I wrote about how when I was younger, I sent curses to others from a place of ignorance.
I didn’t even realize what I was doing at the time. I was just feeling hurt, angry, and helpless. I just wanted it to stop. Rather than just feeling hurt and angry, I went into blame.
The energy I sent out was exactly the type of energy that can cause certain psychic attacks. Many of us do this without realizing the impact it has on others and ourselves.

Since becoming more aware of psychic attacks, I am aware of how to manage my emotions without directing energy at anyone.
I have also learned to redirect attacks coming my way.
The purpose of writing about this is to inform others of how often psychic attacks occur and to provide knowledge of how to handle it if it does happen.
Sometimes, the attack happens quickly without a person meaning to send it at all.
It can be as simple as feeling jealous of another and having negative thoughts about them.
It can escalate into anger, rage, and revenge thoughts directed at the object of our jealousy.
There might not be any real intention behind the emotion but too late it has already been set in motion. We don’t even realize how powerful our thoughts can be.
Of course, this is only one form of psychic attack.
Psychic attacks can have a number of sources.
Some may come from people you know and others can come from people you don’t know, or at least don’t remember, from previous lifetimes.
One source that is more common than you might think is from spirits of people who have died but do not know they are dead.
They may be frightened, agitated, or restless among other negative feelings. These types of psychic attacks can feel more invasive.
If they DO know, they might not be ready to move on.
These spirits can carry a lot of fear or negative energy for a number of reasons, including belief based fears about where they may be going next.
They may have a belief that they were bad and may be going to their idea of Hell. This may cause them to want stay here. They may try to take over someone else’s body.
Have you ever felt invasive energy in hospitals or graveyards?
These are places that can tend to have lost spirits, looking for sensitive individuals with psychic abilities.
It can seem like an open sign for psychic attack business. Energetic boundaries are very important when going into these places.
Lastly, others can be dark spirits.
Unfortunately, there are some spirits who don’t have positive intentions toward other lifeforms.
They may be strongly influenced by jealousy, lust for power, or other types of fear.
We hear stories of jealous Brujos wanting more power so they put curses on other Shamans, causing illness or serious ailments.
In most cases of psychic attacks, the underlying driving force is fear.
It may be fear that has been carried over several lifetimes, deeply buried in the soul’s records.
Regardless of the source of the fear and motivation behind the psychic attacks, we have a choice.
We do not have to go into fear which feeds the power and ignorance of the attacker.
We can have compassion for the pain they have experienced.
We can raise our frequency level to a higher level of Love and Acceptance…for ourselves and for others.
I realize this is not always an easy choice.
There have been times while feeling attacked when I would just hold an intention of sending compassion to all beings.
Negative thought forms
Our habitual thinking can cause psychic attacks as well. Especially if we have become fixated on thoughts involving animosity, jealousy, spite, or revenge toward someone else.
These types of thoughts can cause harm to someone emotionally, physically, or spiritually.
It is also possible to cause a psychic attack from picking up negative thought forms from others as well.
In Peru, they speak of “catching a bad wind,” which is referring to a negative thought form that has traveled from one person to another via the wind.
Any thoughts focused in anger, rage, or fear are extremely powerful in drawing dark energies. Even if you are unaware of it.
Can you draw dark energies to yourself?
When we spend prolonged periods of time focused in states of anger, resentment, bitterness, or any type of fear, this can attract negative energies to us.
Depression is highly attractive to dark energies.
We all feel anger or fear at times.
It is normal to feel, but when we obsessively perpetuate being in a constant state a fear, this is when entities, spirits, and dark energies will attach themselves to us.
Places with consistent violence or heavy use of alcohol and drugs, are also highly populated with dark energies just looking for a new host.
Bars are like psychic portals. Once you become aware of this, you will notice how overly crowded they are with these types of spirits.
Signs to indicate a psychic attack
If you are being psychically attacked, you can feel it. If you tune in, you will notice the signs.
Here is a list of symptoms you might feel.
- a feeling of unease
- disturbances in sleep
- frequent or recurrent nightmares
- grayish appearance to skin tone
- a feeling that your energy field has been invaded in some way
- constant and ongoing fatigue for no obvious reason
- constantly feeling drained
- a lack of desire to look anyone in the eye
- hearing voices
- feeling energetically dirty
- lapses in memory
- acting out of character
- big changes in behavior for no apparent reason
- ongoing bad luck
- experiencing rage seemingly out of nowhere
- extreme changes in ways of thinking
- feeling like there are two of you; Jekyll & Hyde, Good & Evil
- icy cold feeling on any part of your body which cuts right through to your bones and does not go away.
- feeling that you are being watched constantly
- a loss of self-confidence
- sudden illness that eludes diagnosis and can not be explained
- depression without an apparent cause
- irrational fears, sorrow or anger
- attraction to dark rooms and dark colors
- aversion to sunlight
More obvious attacks may be felt like someone trying to get into your energy field (as a violation of your personal space).
This can be felt most commonly around the back of the neck, shoulders, or back. Although, I have also felt it around the womb area.
This is by no means the complete list but it is enough to become aware.
Trust your intuition if you feel like you are experiencing an attack.
If you do have negative energies that are on you, you can get help from a Healer that knows how to deal with negative energies.
The most important thing to know is that you are not helpless to an attack.
I would even suggest changing the wording from attack to information.
One of my Shaman Teachers refers to dark energy as simply heavy energy that needs to be moved.
You are just being made aware of what is happening, so you can do something about it.
This changes the perspective from powerless to having absolute power to alter it.
Understand that nothing can harm you or invade you without your permission or invitation.
The trick is realizing that you may be giving out an open invitation or permission to victimize you.
For instance, if you have been broadcasting a resonance of self-hatred, a dark entity might accept the opportunity to abuse you.
If you feel like you are a bad person and deserve to be punished, you may have an unconscious contract to let bad spirits in to hurt you and others.
What Can You Do About It?
There are certain things within your power you can do to avoid future attacks.
What you seek, you will find so seek ways to bring in more light.
- A Healer
- Allies for Protection
- Ways to Raise Your Vibration
Drink pure water and activate it with Love/Light by holding it while thinking or feeling love.
You can also smudge with white sage to purify your space and rid yourself of negative energies.
If you do this on a daily basis it will help to keep you clear of negative energies. Smudge your home, vehicle, work area and body.
You can also call on Archangel Michael to cut cords with negative spirits or entities and protect your space.
It is so important to have self-awareness and not give more power to the information you are receiving.
You can ALWAYS say, “No, I am not interested in this.”
I had an old contract saying, “I would be a conduit for spirits to use.” I felt like I wanted to be of service.
The problem was, the contract didn’t specify that I was only available to work with benevolent spirits, just that I was open!
So of course, all types of dark entities showed up to play.
I worked with a Shaman Healer to renegotiate the old contract and put in a new one that specified exactly what I was willing to allow.
This healing was invaluable in the shift it produced. What a relief!
You are in charge of yourself and your reality, and get to set clear boundaries between yourself and others.
That’s also a good step to take to help clear yourself of those energies.
If you feel energies, you can let them know that you are not available to engage with them and they are NOT allowed to invade your space.
It can be hard to track down the beliefs that allow attack, but the best thing to remember is that you are the authority of your domain/space.
If they persist, find a Healer that can remove it for you.
Do not be afraid or hesitant to work with a healer that knows how to remove entity attachments.
If you already have entities or attachments, and most of us do, then you need to remove them in order to bring in more LIGHT.
