Testing the Spirits

How to be sure you are working with only  good beings

Sometimes in our dreams we are visited by a stranger, some ominous personality

that we do not recognize and we do not know if this is a good stranger

or a "not so good" stranger. Sometimes we feel a negative energy around us and do not like this feeling. Some of us are able to astral travel and may encounter all sorts of beings there both human and non human.

Is this really an angel? Is this really a guide? How do we know who to trust?


There is a specific technique that a Traditional Shaman uses to determine if spirits,guides, entities, beings that visit him or her are beneficial or not. It is an ancient technique that has been around as long as Shamanism has been around. It was written in Egyptian papyrus scrolls. It is found in the Book of Thoth, another ancient manuscript. It is found in the Bible.


I want to teach it to you now. It is very simple. If you ever findyourself in an encounter with anything that you cannot determine if it is good or bad for you, just ask it three times,


"Are you created by the Creator who created me, here for my highest good?"


Creator means the one who created you, your Source, your God and you can use

God or Source instead of Creator if you wish.

 Everything has some creator but not everything was created by the one who created you.

 Anything might feel it is for your good, but not necessarily for your highest good.


No negative spirit, entity, being, non- physical manifestation can answer this question by lying three times in a row. If this is a good spirit, an angel, a guide, a beneficent presence it will recognize that you are being discriminate and careful and will gladly answer yes three times. If it is a thing of negative energy it may lie two times or even try to change the subject, but it will not be able to say yes when asked the third

time. When it cannot answer the third time then send it away from you by saying,


"Go back to the one who created you."


Put some protection around yourself whether that is a light of protection, the

calling in of Creator's own protection, calling on angels to be with you, however you protect yourself.


Why should I protect myself?


There are innumerable energies swirling all around us. Everything is energy. We are immersed in a huge sea of energy. Energy itself is neither good nor bad. But energy can be made positive or negative. A

negative thought or intention can be sent out into this sea of energy and travel like a radio wave in space. A positive thought or intention does the same. These energies are created by that thought or intentionand they never are uncreated, they never wear out and die. So imagine all the thoughts and intentions in the universe that have ever been created. Wow! Why let all those thought energies bombard you? No need.

Why not just let those positive energies that can benefit you be the ones you allow into your energy field and protect yourself from all the rest.


A Traditional Shaman keeps a bubble of protection around him or herself at all times.

It is not because the Shaman feels threatened or is in danger. It is just because we simply do not need all these errant energies affecting us. There are many ways to protect yourself from errant energies. One

way to visualize that you are inside a soap bubble. This soap bubble is always with you, always around you as long as you want it to be. You only have to think of it to know it is there. Inside this soap bubble is the pure white Light of Creator, of Source. It is beautiful and sacred and is actually the love of Creator for you that you have always had since before you were born. The outside of this bubble you can visualize as a kind of semi permeable teflon material. It is a very

fine mesh that keeps out big negative energy particles and only allows in energy that benefits you, good very tiny particles of positive energy.


This is your bubble, your space, your self, where you are safe and secure and always in the presence of Creator who has always been with you. It is really a beautiful space to have around yourself and I want you to

know this gift and feel it in your daily life.


Just remember this bubble in the morning and at night as you lie down to sleep. Only good energy, love, peace, happiness, joy, abundance can get into this bubble of protection. Only those spirits, angels, good guides who are made by your Creator and sent by your Creator can enter here.


Try this and find a new sense of comfort and freedom in your life. Remember that every

thought and intention you create also exists forever. Try to think positive thoughts and intend good things. In this way you become a healer in this world.
