Guarding Against Attacks! Part 2

Welcome back everyone! Glad you hung in there for the last part of this series where we talk about guarding ourselves against attacks from the Spirit world. We have talked about physical and Spiritual attacks now lets move onto the emotional and psychic attacks. These to me are the hardest to defend against and also the ones that have affected me the most growing up and kind of not knowing any better. Like I said before, I didn’t have anyone to guide me or give me advice and there was no Internet to look to so I just had to wing it and use the resources that were available. I’d like to think that you have found this early on and it is the resource you have been looking for. I took a while to write this because I was waiting for something and I wasn’t sure what it was, I have had lots of examples of how these attacks have affected my life and how they influenced me but I didn’t have any good examples of anyone else. Well recently on my Instagram someone sent me a message and told me a story, the person will not be named but I’m going to tell the story and explain how they fit our topic today.

So this person was admittedly a bit sensitive to the spirit world and has pretty good knowledge of the things they are dealing with but still had questions and needed some answers as to why things were happening to them. They said that they went to a house in the woods that was abandoned and walked around it for a bit. As they did they began to have images implanted into their head and felt that the house or something in the house was calling to them. The person also said that they felt warm and good like a loving feeling coming from the house and they felt invited. Then they explained that they felt tired after the experience and that since they had left all they wanted to do was go back, and that they could not understand the obsession. Although they were tired after the first visit they went back but this time the energy was off and felt bad to them. This is where we are going to break this down and I will explain some things about experiences like this one and others like it.

When this person went to the house they did not intend to have something call to them, and they certainly did not think they would have a psychic experience. Did they have a psychic expierience? They sure did. Some energy put images into the person’s head, what they were I am not sure of but that isn’t the point right now, the point is that there was no permission given for this to happen. I would equate this to the person at the perfume desk spraying you with the latest stinky perfume without you saying ok first. You didn’t ask for it and now it is going to be stuck on you all day. As a psychic I would call this an imprint. The energy there made an imprint on the living person to get attention. After that the person felt a good warm feeling, well we all like feeling loved right? Sure, it is really nice to feel that way and have that warm fuzzy feeling. Well I doubt we would like it much of a stranger gave us a big hug and told us that it was out of love. We would know that something is up and we would most likely do something to remove ourselves from the situation. Now what about the next part, our friend has left the area and cannot shake the feeling of being drawn back even though they left tired from house. (Did you read about cutting cords yet in my earlier blog?) So the imprint is so strong that we want to go back and we do, well this time we should know that we need to be protected because whatever is there has already done a number on us. So the person shows back up and the energy there has changed and everything feels off. There is no longer a loving feeling, now it is more fear based and perhaps adding to some feelings of depression. The entity has had you come back and is just taking from your life force to strengthen itself and that sounds like something from a horror movie! What are we going to do?

First things first! Recognize a psychic attack! Ok this isn’t just for mediums or ghost hunters, this is for everyone. If you are not diagnosed with a mental disorder and have lived a life free of major mental illnesses then it is ok to keep reading and just understand that these things happen to everyone. In the world there are energies, some are imprints on places people or things, some are intelligent energies and they know exactly what they are doing. Sounds a bit sinister and sometimes it can be but it isn’t always. In the case of our friend we do not know where this house is geographically located and we do not know the history. We just know it is an old house in the woods and no one lives there. Lots of times we know everything about our surroundings and that makes it easier to identify what is happening to us. I would say that if you are ever out, or investigating and have not given an entity or energy the permission to access you mind and they have that you leave. It is important to remove yourself from harm. Once they have access to your mind they have accessed your Chakra system and will manipulate you the way you feel in order to meet the goal they have set out to reach. This means that if you are seeing a vision of a child in your mind and you know it is no one you know you should remove yourself from the space. Practice cutting your energy cord at that moment to disconnect from the energy you have come in contact with. The next step from images in your mind is to invoke feelings about them which is a manipulation of your Heart Chakra. This is one of the most powerful spiritual centers of our bodies. Next will come your Base Chakra rooting you to the location, leaving you feeling that you want to come back.

Scott! That is so much and sounds like you are trying to scare me! I assure you that I don’t want to scare you, just educate you and give you good examples of how these things work with a recent example of someone just like you. So what should you do to protect yourself from these attacks, is there anything you can do against a psychic attack? Heck Yeah! First you have to recognize it like I said above. Remove yourself as quickly as you can from it and then cut your energy cord. This really goes back to a good meditation technique that you should be practicing. Once you have done that you should consider not going back to the area without someone with more experience than you to navigate the area. You see that there is a very big connection with a psychic attack and emotion attack. They go hand in hand, if not handled correctly you could end up going down a bad path spiritually and emotionally.

Quickly here is the worst psychic attack I have faced: I was about 20 years old and doing labor as an electricians assistant. It was a hot day in the summer and we had been working in a laundromat doing wiring. The boss asked me to go to the basement to check the wires under the machines to make sure they were ok and didn’t need service. I didn’t give it a second thought, I went down the steps and started checking the wires. I was down in the basement for about five minutes and then it hit me, the most violent disgusting images I had ever seen in my life were flashing before my eyes. Making me sick and disoriented I stumbled to the steps and made my way out of the basement. I told the boss that I would not go back down because I felt sick, I did not disclose the rest of what had happened. This was a sharp and very intentional attack against me and I had no idea what it was until years later, now I know. That entity did not want me in its space and pushed me right out. Has anything like that every happened to you?

What is the emotional toll after an attack? Well often times people feel grief and sadness and can often be led to feel depressed. It can leed to shortness of temper and a very dark outlook on life. Sounds familiar right? Kind of like being on drugs or being an alcoholic. The symptoms sometimes appear to be the same and with good reason. That energy has imprinted on you and has made you feel as though it needs to be apart of your life so that you feel whole. Meanwhile this is the ploy to keep you coming back and feeding it. I find this to be common with Paranormal Investigators. I have even heard them say things like “I can’t wait to go back, I can’t get enough of that place.” Yeah you can, please realize it. Places are haunted for a reason, something has decided that it is going to be in a place for a reason, think of it like a fisherman knowing the sweet spot in the lake. Same thing, they know where to be to feed and fuel their own energy through you. Again this is for education like all my posts, I am not trying to scare you.

This post is closer to home for me so I have tried to make it a little longer and more in detail. I would also like to say that you can find protection in medallions and in crystals. I will go more into that at another time. I just wanted to get this part of the series done and out there because people do need it and I want to help as many of you as I can. Thanks very much for reading and I promise there will be more. As I become more educated in this subject and as I hear more stories I will post them. The more we know the better we can help each other. Please go give my Facebook a like Scotty The NJ medium, twitter @scottynjmedium and Instagram scottythenjmedium

Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you! Questions and comments are welcome always!



Taking the mystery out of Chakras. The Crown Chakra

So I am sure that if you have done any browsing and reading you have come across the word “chakra” and maybe have had a few questions and not too many really clear answers. Well I am going to do my best to give you clear answers and make it as simple as I can so that you learn to utilize your Chakras. So I plan on doing one at a time and I will describe the location, the color associated with it and what each Chakra is intended for. I will end the series with how important they are to use together and when it is a good time to activate them plus some exercises along the way to get them going! Ready?

We are going from top to bottom and that means we are going to start with the Crown Chakra, can you guess where that is? If you guessed on top of your head then we are to a good start. I will start by telling you how I came to even get involved with Chakras and how I was using them and not understanding what they were. When I would get a message from Spirit i would get a substantial amount of pressure on top of my head, so much that I would feel like I was wearing a ball cap or had sunglasses pressed down on top of my head. I had no idea that this was a Chakra at work, it wasn’t until much later that I realized what it was and that was due to lots of research and reading and watching endless youtube videos. Now, do you ever feel that? If you don’t that’s ok because I am going to give you a simple tip to help you focus on it. Then we can talk about how important it is to use and what it does. Ready for you first excercise?

YES YOU ARE! This ones easy, find a ball cap or a  sweat band or anything else you can put on top of your head that we can adjust to be a little tighter than it is comfortable. (Make sure the placement isn’t down low over your forehead, it should be higher than midway of your forehead.) If you can’t run get one right now that is ok, you can do it later. When you put the hat on I want you to adjust it just one click tighter than you usually wear it, once you’ve done that we can start on the focus and intention. Let’s get our focus on! Ok, so you have something on your head and it should be a little tight, not cut off circulation tight. Once that is done I want you to take a few breaths and close your eyes. Once you have done that go ahead and go through your relaxing method, whatever it is that you do before a meditation to release the tension you hold in your body, if you don’t have one and you have started here please go back and read my post about the The Third eye and learn that meditation. Once you have become relaxed you should really be paying attention to the pressure on your head, it is probably hard to focus with that pressure up there right? Yup it is! Now ask yourself, is that a familiar feeling that pressure or is it new? If it’s familiar and you don’t have any medical issues then you have been feeling pressure on your Crown Chakra for a while, and if it is new then you now know what it feels like! Yes! This is what it feels like to have pressure on your Crown Chakra, it can get to the point of having headaches or even neck aches because you are backed up, so to speak.

Now, this is not going to be something that happens over night if you haven’t felt it before. I promise though you will begin to feel it if you practice. The point is to wear the hat and become comfortable getting to know the feeling and understanding that your Crown Chakra is very powerful. I would say to do this at least once a day, maybe while you are watching TV or scrolling through your Instagram on the couch. Just put on the hat and remember what that feels like, this way when you start to feel it and you aren’t wearing the hat you know that your Crown is opening to new information! Seriously, it is going to feel strange when you feel the pressure and start feeling the top of your head to see if you put a hat on or left glasses there and forgot. Now another good indication that you have been activating your Crown Chakra is that you get a tingle on the top of your scalp, it is a tickle but it is absolutely an indication that your hard work is paying off. Please do not be frustrated if this takes a little while, we are here to learn and practice!

All right so we have the first part down, you have learned to focus on the Crown Chakra. Now you may be asking yourself “What does this Chakra do?” and you would be right to ask because you’ve worked hard to start feeling it! The list of what the Crown Chakra does goes on and on, we are going to talk about a few of them and keep it simple then we will talk about setting intentions and making it work for you! What does it do? Well let’s start with the color associated with it, and that color is violet or purple. There is a meaning behind the color and I suggest you go look it up, I don’t want to go into it here because there is so much and it will take away from what we are doing, ok. This Chakra is obviously located on the top of your head and that is why we did the hat thing and focused up there. Now when you are trying to take in new things your Crown Chakra is like the open top part of a bucket, it is where all the spiritual knowledge goes. It pores in the top and then gets filtered down to all the other Chakras along the path. It is the first stop for the information you receive from the Universe or Spirit and even when you meet someone, and let me be clear this is not a physical act that the brain is completing. This is part of your Spirit Body doing what it was intended to do, take in information from the Universe and help you navigate life. Your Crown is also the spot that Light is taken in, whether you know it or not this is where your Spiritual energy is taken in from. That is why when we do meditations we imagine the light flowing from the top to the bottom, not because of gravity or any other reason. Plain and simple, the Crown is the starting point! Some time in the future we may go into other things that the Crown is for but lets just leave it with these two things and set some intentions to get them going!

The first intention we can set is one that you have already been doing if you have been doing meditations, letting the energy flow in and down to cleanse yourself and help relax your body. So this intention is fairly simple and even if you aren’t set to meditate and need a pick me up I want you to try this: Close your eyes (don’t do this if you are driving or doing something else of that nature!) and look up. Focus on the pressure that you have felt with the hat, when you remember what that feels like go ahead and relax your eyes. Take a deep breath and think of the golden ball of light over your head, have it turn into liquid and pour right over your head. Say this either out loud or in your head “The light is energy and it renews me.” That easy! After you practice it a few times and get used to it you will be doing it all day and not even realizing it! That is the first intention, renewing your energy and that is because you cannot do anything else if you are tired! Ready for the second intention? Keep reading!

The second intention goes like this: Do the same thing you did for the first intention up to the point of having the gold ball of light over your head. This time instead of the light turning to liquid and pouring I want you to imagine you have a bright purple, way to big crown on top of your head and that ball of light is hovering right above it. Now, you need to tell that light that it is going to be all of the thoughts and ideas of the things you are intended to know at this moment. Say this “Please be the inspiration and information that I want and deserve.” Now let the ball fall into your crown. What has come to you? Write down or draw what you feel or have seen, describe it and do not hold back because that is doubt and doubt has no place here! Do not be surprised at what comes to you, even if what you write or draw makes no sense that is ok, because once we get better at this things will be better. Imagine you are at the eye Doctor and they are doing that thing with all the lenses and you have to figure what lens helps you see best. Things will come into focus, we just need to keep coming back and practicing! So your second intention is one that will help leed to wisdom and spiritual enlightenment and that is where we want to go!

Use intention number one all day, it is great practice and will keep you feeling great! Use intention number two anytime you are feeling stuck or are going to attempt to do some psychic work, heck use it for inspiration writing or making music. There is no limit! Be creative and let me know how it goes! Write to me here, through email or over at my Instagram scottythenjmedium. Thanks so much for stopping by!

I hope you enjoyed reading this and leave me some feedback please! Feel free to ask questions and I will answer you best to my knowledge and if I don’t know the answer I will find it for you! Our next Chakra will be the The Third Eye, which we kind of covered but I will go more in-depth and explain how it works in conjunction with the Crown and how it helps with the other Chakras. At the end of the series we will go over all the crystals that are associated with these Chakras and how they help amplify the effects. Stay tuned! Thanks again!



A Boy and a Haunted Mirror

This story like all stories you will read here is based on a case that I have personally been involved in. It started like most do, a text on my phone from the groups founder Patrick. His texts are always short and to the point and go something like this when it’s emergent “This person just called and they have a crazy story.” I’m paraphrasing, but for the most part that’s how the ball starts rolling. In this case there was a small boy who I will call “Tim.” Tim was about 8 years old and deathly afraid to sleep in his bedroom alone. It was at the point that his father actually placed a second bed in the room so that he could sleep next to his son.

To me that was certainly an issue, I have children and don’t think that i would ever move a bed into their rooms to sleep. Patrick went on further to say that the family had been experiencing shadows, noises and that at night Tim was behaving oddly. The family had 2 other children one a little older and one a little younger who had not been experiencing much of anything. I asked Patrick to send me photos of Tim’s room taken by the parents. I have a gift of being able to read psychic energy from photos and before we get into a home it is useful for me to have an idea of what me may be getting into.

Shop Today!

The room was like any other young boys room, except the two beds of course. I did pick up a little energy from a piece of furniture but nothing that was definitive. After looking at the photo’s I told Patrick to make a date with the family soon and we could go investigate. So within a week or so we were forty minutes south of base in somewhere NJ at an apartment complex to help a family. We met with Tim’s mom and dad first, Tim was out playing with friends and that was good because I was able to get a good read on the situation without him there. Patrick and I carried a skeleton amount of gear into the apartment to use during our meeting and what would be a very brief investigation.

The four of us sat down at the kitchen table where Tim’s Mom and Father both spoke to us and recounted stories of what had been happening. Dad’s stories were the most compelling to me, and mostly due to the fact that he came across as a person who was skeptical of the entire thing, until he had his own encounters. He stated that after a few weeks of Tim refusing to sleep alone he moved into the bedroom and decided he would sleep there to help provide a piece of mind and show Tim that there was nothing to be afraid of, and that’s when things started happening to him.

One evening after going to bed Tim’s father woke up from a sound sleep by an invisible force pressing down on his throat and strangling him. He stated that during the attack he was also paralyzed which he attributed to the spirit holding him down. He said that it eventually got off of him and he was able to get up off of the bed. This was the first of the three major events that happened to him in that room. The second; Tims father woke up from a sound sleep because he could hear his son talking, he looked across the room and saw Tim sitting up, playing with action figures. He told Tim to put the dolls away and go to sleep. Tim did not react at all he kept doing what he was doing, this prompted dad to get up to take action.

Dad walked over to the bed and the dolls fell from above the covers and to the bed, Tim was sound asleep and snoring. Dad said that he could see Tim’s outline playing and as he got the bed the dolls dropped, this was the second time that something had happened in the room that was unexplainable. The last thing that he explained was this; He was asleep and woke up to some kind of noise in the room, as he looked up at the ceiling he could see black long shadows and they were coming from the dresser mirror in the room. He started yelling and the tentacles retreated back into the mirror. This was the conformation that I needed about the feeling that I had about that item.

I left the room and went to Tim’s room, I placed my hands on the mirror and the dresser and got the impression that it had been somewhere else before they had owned it. As in it was used by someone else and not bought from the store. I saw something that was a scary image, and not that it was actually scary but because I touched it and this was what I saw it was scary. Christ hanging on the Cross bleeding and dying. That is how I saw him, not like the crucifix but actually Jesus on a Cross and dying. This was odd to pick up from a mirror and I figured it was to try to frighten me away, picked by an energy or entity that did not want me there. I went back to the kitchen and explained to the family that the mirror would need to be removed.

They asked why and I told them what I had seen, with that they confirmed that the piece was owned by someone in the building that had moved and gave it to them. With that Tim arrived home and I spoke to him for a little bit, I picked up that he was also sensitive to the paranormal and had some strong medium and psychic abilities himself. He was not causing the issue but while he was asleep he was super charging the energy present in the mirror. I explained it to him and his parents and suggested that the mirror at the very least be removed from the room for the activity to stop.

A few weeks later I received a phone call from Tim’s mom, the mirror had remained in Tim’s room until a few hours prior to this phone call. Tim’s father had another bad night and finally took my advice, in the middle of the night he picked the mirror up and walked it out to the dumpster. Since then I have checked in on the family and they have not had any more negative things occur in the house and they have taken my advice on how to help Tim day-to-day manage his gifts. I hope all those reading this join the conversation and start following and asking questions because I am here to help. Keep practicing and don’t doubt yourself!


Our first story, together.


Let’s take a break from the flow for a minute and have a little fun in the form of a few ghost stories!  I love to tell a good ghost story and I hope you like to read them.  Several months ago I decided to take my wife to the movies, we were going to see Dead Pool in the opening week and it was sold out at our local Giantplex movie house. After a few minutes of enduring the usual ribbing of why I didn’t check beforehand if they were sold out we decided to go to a smaller and much older movie house in a small town that neighbors ours.

The town is nestled up against the Atlantic Ocean and has had its fair share of ghostly lore attached to it. It’s a middle class blue collar town with a mix of just about every type of person you could imagine. The theater is located on the main strip of the old town in succession of buildings all built together like one big store front down the quarter mile of concrete and glass on both sides. Walking up to the theater is very unassuming; it has the usual movie posters outside and the luring smell of over buttered popcorn wafting through the closed doors. My wife and I went into the theater where an enthused teenager was selling tickets for the next showing of the Marvel movie. Looking around I could see that the theater was pretty empty, the small lobby had no one in it but the three of us and in my normal humor I asked if there were any seats left. The kid behind the counter gave me the same look my own kid gives me when I make a bad dad joke, and promptly completed the transaction moving us on into the area that leads to the three small movie theaters inside.

The small lobby is decorated in dark red with gold trim and wooden panel walls, very classic movie house feel and that is part of the charm of this theater. I hadn’t been to this theater in years, my dad used to take me there when I was younger to see every movie I had pretty much ever seen. As I made it into my teenage years the big theater opened and we all kind of forgot about this little jewel. From here I’m going to say that fate brought me to this theater, who knew Ryan Reynolds playing a crazy comic book character would lead to such a life changing event?

While walking into theater room one I got that urge, the urge to look around for spirit or a spirit for that matter. I spotted an old clock the kind that people refer to as a Grandfather clock and probably the perfect clock to mention in a ghost story. After a brief look around the corners and down the narrow hall I didn’t spot anything that warranted a psychic look so we continued into the theater, which was empty besides two other movie goers and us. As we waited for the movie to start rolling I found my attention pulled to the first row of the theater where I spotted what I was looking for, a spirit. The ghost if you will, was very regular looking, in the way that he was dressed in a suit and had his grey hair combed over his bald spot. He looked back at me and we acknowledged each other, this wasn’t too normal for me but I wasn’t afraid because it was in the world of kind of normal. I mentioned to my wife that I could see him and she as usual told me that she could not see the invisible person I was talking about.

The movie played and we had a great time, I forgot the ghost was there and didn’t pay attention to him the rest of the time we were there, this could be the first step in the direction of what I did wrong that night. We made it home, a short 10 minute drive back to the house. I locked the doors and my wife made sure the children were in bed. I did my usual wind down for the evening, a little facebook and Instagram and got ready for bed. That night I had one of the worst nights sleep ever and so did my wife, I was tossing and turning and when I did fall asleep I felt like my skin was crawling and making me want to stay awake. The morning came and the day went by like any other day. That evening as we were getting ready for bed, my wife asked me to sleep on the couch if I was going to toss and turn all night. I agreed to that request because two nights of my wife not having a good night sleep could be detrimental to everyone’s wellbeing.

I made my nest on the couch and turned in for the night at about ten thirty or so. This is where if you get scared easy you may want to skip over to the end. I was woken up with an icy grip of two hands around my throat, pressing so hard that I could feel my airway collapsing and so much pressure I was sunk into the couch. I immediately thought that someone was in the house and trying to kill me. I started to flail my arms and with my eyes open I could not see a thing but what I can only describe as stars appearing before me as I lost breath. I couldn’t feel a body on top of me and this kicked in my psychic awareness, this is an attack by a spirit. I retreated into my head quickly, reciting every prayer I knew and begging for the help of my Guardian Angels, Guides and God. Half way through my second prayer the grip released and I was able to spring up from the couch fully awake. I saw my attacker in the form of a black shadow and chased it across my living room to the stairs that lead to the bedrooms. The shadow split into pieces and dissipated. I calmed my nerves down and said several more prayers and an intention to keep my home protected from that spirit and any others that were going to do me or my family harm.

This event lead me to make a desperate call for help to a local paranormal investigation team, the Paranormal Activity Research Society of NJ. I was able to write them an email of the account and ask them if they had ever heard any accounts of that theater having activity. Within a few hours my phone rang and the founder of the team was on the line with me, no doubt seeing if I was a cook or for real. After giving him the rundown of myself and my abilities he decided that there was  some validity to my tale. As fate would have it, he lived in the town where the theater was located and knew the owner. After reaching out to the owner of the theater my contact on the team was able to find out that there were stories about the theater but nothing was ever confirmed.

Fast forward a little bit, I was invited to be on the team and now am an active member. We were invited to investigate the theater whenever we were ready and will be doing so soon. I have not returned there personally yet and have no desire to, whatever is there was angry I had seen it and took its anger out on me in my home. It is important for everyone at every level to protect themselves from the spirits that roam, they are the same that they were in life and if they were angry alive then they are angry on the other side. If you come in contact with a spirit make sure that you say out loud before leaving the location that they are not welcome to follow you or leave the area they are in.

I hope you liked my story and I promise that there are many more plus there will be developments later on this story once we go to the theater to investigate. As always, thanks for reading and I hope to have you come back.   -Scotty
