What does it feel like to be hit by spiritual negativity? It’s likely that you already know, but have never been able to clearly identify the sensation. You can acquire the skill to recognize spiritual negativity through the daily examination of physical sensations such as pain, intense emotions and energy draining.
By developing a heightened awareness of the impact of your surroundings, thoughts and emotions, you’ll increase your ability to identify the source of a spiritual ‘hit’ more quickly. The key to counteracting its effect is to refuse negativity completely by returning it all to its source with the Light* as soon as possible.
The notion of returning the negativity from a spiritual ‘hit’ is more powerful when you know its source. Usually you’ll be able to discern who’s sending the negativity as a result of your physical location or thoughts you’re having about someone. It’s not always possible to pinpoint the source of the negativity, though, because it could be coming through someone else or from a higher-level source. If you don’t refuse and return it, then you’re accepting the flow of negative energy and its influence.
One interesting experience comes to mind when someone asks what a spiritual hit feels like. Upon my last visit to a zoo about fifteen years ago, Leo Jean, a friend and I were visiting the gorilla exhibit. We were standing there, watching the gorillas looking back at us through the viewing glass when I met eyes with a female that was looking at me with the saddest expression. I thought of how horrible it must be for such creatures to be held in captivity with scores of people ogling them every day.
A few seconds later, I noticed an intense pain in my head. Since I never get headaches, I recognized it as a spiritual hit. I started to refuse it immediately and to return it to its source. Apparently, I wasn’t strong enough yet, because the pain just kept increasing until it was excruciating. My attention turned to the female gorilla, as I then sensed that it was she that was sending me the negative energy associated with her anger and frustration. I kept refusing and returned it to its source but, after a few minutes of intense pain, I had to ask Leo for help, because my efforts weren’t strong enough.
As we left the gorilla exhibit and walked outside, Leo helped me to return the hit directly to the source (i.e. the female gorilla and the spirits that were helping her) with the Light. I felt the pain subside immediately. I then realized quite sheepishly that I had accepted negativity from the gorilla, because I was sympathetic to her physical circumstances. Upon accepting her emotional outcry, I had allowed her spirit to send me the negativity that she had generated at the physical level. It was a painful learning experience, but one that evoked a greater commitment in me to gain more strength and positive knowledge, so that I would be able to overcome such spiritual hits in the future.
On the lighter side, my last zoo experience was highlighted by the antics of some very savvy elephants. Leo amused me and many other zoo visitors when he coaxed two Indian elephants to dance rhythmically back and forth with trunks swinging in unison to a silent beat. It took Leo several minutes to convince a somewhat reluctant but amazing African elephant to join in on the celebratory dance with its companions. It was a delightfully happy experience for all!
Since animals are very spiritually oriented, they conduct their spiritual activities in a very similar way as humans. It’s a great way to demonstrate how thought and emotional energy can be directed and received in a positive or negative way, depending on the sender’s intention. So, the next time you’re around someone who is ill, angry, complaining, anxious, sad, etc., it’s your responsibility to refuse them properly. As you defend yourself by minimizing your physical exposure and returning all the hits to their source with the Light, you’ll be doing them a favor, since the Light is purely positive energy.
In order to progress in your spiritual development, it will help you to train yourself to recognize spiritual negativity, so that you can react effectively to counteract its impact.
