A psychic attack is the sending of negative energy with the conscious or unconscious intention to inflict harm upon a person, his or her life, or family. Harm can be launched toward the emotional, physical, spiritual, or mental state of a person. Those negative energies are typically projected in the form of thought, based on jealousy, envy, anger, and more. Although there is no scientific evidence that indicates anyone is capable of launching a psychic attack against anyone, behaving negatively toward others can have damaging effects on the recipients.

Influences Based on Surroundings

A psychic attack can be influenced by someone that the person already knows, including friends or family members. These thought forms can be sent consciously or unconsciously, without awareness or intent. When they are sent unconsciously, jealousy, envy, or anger is often the motivation.

A conscious attack is when someone deliberately means to harm someone and can be compared to black magic, witchcraft, and spell casting. It is widely believed that a psychic attack is less about the person being attacked than it is about the weakness of the attacker, similar to bullying behavior.

Reasons Why Someone Might Attack

There are several motivations influencing an attacker:

  • The attacker is jealous. For example, the victim's life is progressing forward while his or hers is stagnant.
  • The attacker is envious of the victim's looks, career, life partner, or environment.
  • The attacker is living in his or her dark side at the moment.
  • The attacker has a lack of self-conviction and is living in fear.

It is theorized that when negative energy is consciously sent to someone with the intention of inflicting harm, then what is sent is exactly what will be attracted upon the sender. The universal law of karma states that what goes around comes back around, multiplied.

Symptoms of a Psychic Attack

Here are some examples of what may be experienced while under a psychic attack. Remember, however, that these symptoms can apply to a wide range of common illnesses and conditions, and the chances that any of them result from psychic attacks may be slim to none. If you experience the symptoms listed below for any length of time, consult your health care provider as soon as possible:

  • Having nightmares: dreaming very frightening and unpleasant dreams
  • Seeing the attacker front and center: seeing the attacker in a devilish way, either in dreams, meditations, or thoughts
  • Experiencing fatigue: feeling tired and depleted of energy constantly and for no reason
  • Feeling pain: having aches in the same place and time on a regular basis
  • Having weakness: experiencing illness or pains in areas of weakness that the attacker is aware of
  • Being lethargic: lack of concentration and feelings of laziness when it comes to completing daily tasks
  • Having severe headaches: having unusually painful headaches accompanied by vomiting or dizziness
  • Feeling doubtful: questioning or doubting direction in life, even after having been aware of direction beforehand
  • Sensing being watched: having the feeling of being watched and seeing shadows from the corner of the eye, even when alone
  • Feeling suicidal: having feelings similar to a heart attack or the desire to commit suicide

Guarding Against Psychic Attacks

Feeling protected from psychic attacks is important. Remember, however, that if you're experiencing symptoms above and they are affecting your daily life, you should consult with a physician. That said, these safeguards may at least calm you until you can confer with a health care professional:

  • Be aware: Becoming aware of the psychic attack through identification of the unusual events taking place will help to diminish the effect of the attack.
  • Ask for guidance: Ask a spirit guide or guardian angel to help stop the attack and create protection.
  • Refrain from mirroring the attacker's actions: Avoid sending similar energies or thoughts to the attacker.
  • Send loving thoughts: Remember the attacker is the weaker one. Instead of returning to thoughts of anger, hate, or fear, choose to feel compassion toward the attacker. This type of light, love, and blessings can help the person see and heal his or her own darkness.
  • Protect No. 1: Every time the attacker comes into your mind, imagine you are showering the attacker with the pure light of the universe. Change the way light is sent by imagining it being sent in different ways. Keep protection around you.
  • Be strong: The most important way of staying safe from the effect of a psychic attack is to be emotionally strong and stable. Identify your internal emotional issues and fears with the goal to heal them. This protection keeps the absorption and effects of negative energies to a minimum. Consulting with a physician or counselor can be helpful in this arena as well.
