If you are in a location that feels unsettling, you may want to do a prayer of protection:
The light of God surrounds us
The love of God enfolds us
The power of God protects us
Please remember to introduce yourself, let them know you mean no harm, when leaving an investigation site, ask that they not follow you home. Thank them as you leave as an act of respect.
These tips I have posted are not a requirement by any means, these are simple approaches you can take to keep you safe from harm. As in any investigation, you never know what you will come across, trigger and possibly anger. Especially if you are investigating with others who may be provoking. Sensitives are also known to attract spirits and they may follow you home. Keeping yourself & your family safe is of the utmost importance. It only takes a few seconds before & after an investigation to show respect and ask for protection.
Generic Protective Blessing
This blessing is intentionally devoid of any religious affiliation, as it is our view that each individual must, at such times, draw upon his/her own faith or source of inner strength.
Upon entering the site of a paranormal investigation, particularly where a hostile entity has manifested, it is advisable for the participants of the investigation to initiate a protective, "psychic shield."
One brief method of doing this is to have the participants gather in a circle, perhaps touching hands, while one of them intones the following blessing, or words to this effect:
"As we enter this place where impressions of the past are trapped and associations linger, let us do so with the assurance that we are guarded by the Power which proceeds from forthright and peaceful intent. We envision a white radiance encircling us, fortifying us and protecting us from any harm or distraction in our purpose this day."
