Some cultures call it the Evil Eye. Others speak of curses. Most have stories of the dark forces and negative spirits. Whatever words you choose to describe a psychic attack, the experience is not enjoyable. Let me explain.
We are all energetic beings, and our thoughts are a form of energy. One person’s negative thoughts, directed consistently and strongly in the direction of another, form the basis for psychic attack, and they may weaken our energetic field. Even the guy in your office that wishes you would get fired so he could get promoted could be unwittingly harming your field. People who are stressed, sick, or lacking a strong spiritual practice, are particularly vulnerable to this type of energetic attack.
Yogi Bhajan taught a simple yet powerful mantra to reflect any psychic attack back onto the person or spirit from which it originates. This mantra should only be said once per day, no more. You say it once powerfully and then you let it go. Do not chant this mantra over and over again.
This mantra calls upon the assistance of Baba Siri Chand, who was the son of Guru Nanak, the first Guru of the Sikhs. Baba Siri Chand was a devoted yogi who renounced the world in favor of spiritual practice. He was a highly evolved consciousness, but he could not become the Guru after his father because a very important principle of Sikhism is being on the householder’s path. Sikhs are encouraged to live in the world, have jobs and marry, yet still focus their attention on God.
Back in the old days in India, there were many “bad yogis” running around. They developed siddhi powers, or psychic skills, from their years of meditation and yoga. Some could materialize wealth by stealing it from another without a trace. Some put people under spells to do their bidding.
Guru Nanak trusted Baba Siri Chand with the task of approaching these dark yogis and teaching them the error of their ways. Baba Siri Chand was a master of deflecting psychic attack from these yogis and staying connected to source energy. In Western terms, Baba Siri Chand is similar to Archangel Michael. You call him in times when you need protection from anything that is not pure light.
The next time you find yourself frightened or feeling attacked by negative energies, try this powerful mantra and see how strong and protected you feel.
You can find this mantra, recited with clear and correct pronunciation, on Mantras of the Master by Santokh Singh Khalsa.
