A psychic attack is a negative energy that someone sends with the conscious or unconscious intention to inflict harm upon a person, their life, or their 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.

Influences Based on Surroundings

A psychic attack can be influenced by someone in their surroundings that they already know, including friends or family members, although is not always intentional.

These thought forms can be sent consciously or unconsciously. When they are sent unconsciously, the person sending the thoughts may be doing so without their own awareness, and jealousy, envy, or anger is often the motivation.

A conscious attack is when someone deliberately means 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.

Reasons Why Someone Might Attack Psychically

There are several motivations behind an attacker using physical force against their victim:

  • The attacker is jealous. For example, the victim's life is progressing forward while theirs is stagnant.
  • The attacker is envious of the victim's looks, career, life partner, or their environment.
  • The attacker is living in their 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 else with the intention of inflicting harm, then what is sent is exactly what will be attracted upon the sender in their own life. 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:

    • Having nightmares: Dreaming very frightening and unpleasant dreams
    • 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 already aware of
    • Being lethargic: Lack of concentration and feelings of laziness when it comes to completing daily tasks
    • Having severe headaches: Having unusually painful and even severe 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, especially when it is affecting daily life. Below are some ways to stay safe:

    • Be aware: Becoming aware of the psychic attack through identification of the unusual events that are 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 a pure white energy of light directly from the universe, source, or God of personal belief.
    • 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 will help them see and heal their own darkness.
    • Protect number one: Every time the attacker comes into one's mind, it is important for them to imagine they are showering their attacker with the pure light of the Universe. Change the way light is sent by imagining it being sent in different ways. Remember to keep protection around.
    • Be strong: The most important way of staying safe from the effect of a psychic attack is to be emotionally strong and stable. Do not allow others to identify with any personal fears because this reveals weakness. Try to identify with internal emotional issues and fears with the goal to heal them. This way, remaining protected from the emotionally vulnerable keeps the absorption and effects of negative energies to a minimum.
