A Wiccan Journey: Protective Shield

(DISCLAIMER: This is not my creation. I discovered this Magical Sphere in the book CANDLE MAGIC, by Phillip Cooper. You can purchase the book HERE..)
There has been so much negativity in the world as of late that I find myself revising and re-posting something I feel will help those who are having a difficult time dealing with all this anger. I use this method when I come across psychic vampires (yes, they exists), and strengthen it with the use of rose quartz and black tourmaline crystals. For this exercise, I place the crystals as close to my heart as I can.
Start by clearing your mind. Relax and let go of all the mundane thoughts. Imagine a point of bright light inside yourself, at about heart level. See a shaft of light rise up, just above the crown of your head. Next, imagine the shaft of light moving down through your body. If you’re sitting have it extent past your tailbone. Next, extend the light in each magical direction (North, South, East, West). The book says you should be facing East, but that’s not always possible.
Now for the rings. Imagine the first ring starting at the crown of your head, where the shaft ends. Have it arc your body, traveling down your back toward your feet (or tailbone), then back up your front and ending at the crown of your head.
The second ring begins at the crown of your head again, but this time arcs out over your right side, down under your base, back up arching over your left side, finally resting at the crown.
The third and final ring begins at the mid-section. First imagine a shaft of light emanating out from your core, about a foot in front. Have the shaft then arc to the left side, then arching to your back, then right side, finally stopping at your front where you began.
The magic sphere is now complete. To dispel it, just imagine everything in reverse, starting with the third ring pulling back around your body from right to left. When you’re sphere is complete, you should be visualizing something like the diagram below. Just not with the colours.
To reinforce this shield throughout the day, still your mind and take a few deep breaths. Imagine the rings around you, shimmering and strong. Once you get used to doing this, you can create and strengthen your shield quickly when needed.
