What is a Psychic Attack?
There is a lot of misinformation out there about psychic attack, so let’s talk about what it really is.
In a nutshell, a psychic attack is when your feelings, mood, or aura is negatively affected by energy.
That energy could be coming from a person (like a cranky co-worker), or a stressful situation.
In other words, psychic attack happens from exposure to intense negative emotional energy. (Like, if you are fighting with your spouse all the time, for example.)
This negativity affects your aura, energy, and spiritual, emotional, and physical being.
The good news is that there is no scientific evidence that someone can psychically attack another person.
But any type of negative or vindictive behavior can undoubtedly create a negative impact on you. And when that takes over, it feels like a negative (or psychic) attack.
Now that you’re clear on what it is, let’s talk about the symptoms of a psychic attack.
What are the symptoms of a psychic attack?
While everyone feels things differently (especially in the world of energy), there are some telltale signs that you may be going through a psychic attack. They are:
1. You are Stressed Out
No doubt about it, the number one symptom of psychic attack is feeling stressed out. You see, prolonged or intense stress zaps your energy, and affects your aura.
So what’s an aura?
Your aura is the energy field that surrounds all living things. It reflects the state of your soul. So when you are feeling great, your aura (which can be sensed by intuitive people) will be clear and bright. Yet, when you are super stressed, the negativity can make your aura look cloudy or muddy.
One of the easiest (and most relaxing) ways to improve your aura colors is to take an aura cleansing bath. This is a great first step towards nixing psychic attack and renewing your energy!
2. Nightmares or Night Terrors
Do you find yourself waking up in night sweats and sheer terror? Nightmares come and go, but if you’re experiencing them consistently, check in with yourself. That could be a sign of a shift in your energy… which makes you feel like you are under psychic attack.
For help with nightmares, try diffusing some essential oils. Here are the best essential oils for sleep and how to use them.
3. Fatigue or Energy Drain
If you feel like you’re lagging and yawns are constant, your energy probably isn’t in tippy-top shape.
Of course, we all have energy lags sometimes (especially when we skip our 3:00 coffee!), but it’s also a symptom of psychic attack — especially if you are dealing with the other symptoms on this list.
The good news, though, is you can get in touch with your energy levels and uplift them. But how do you do this? Actually, it’s easy… and in this case, the best defense is a good offense.

4. Lack of Enthusiasm
You’re usually as peppy as a cheerleader, and now you can’t muster up the enthusiasm to get your work done on time. Everything feels like a drag, and you’re not as excited about life as you used to be.
This is a classic case of psychic attack, and it’s affecting your vibe.
This typically goes hand-in-hand with the energy drain we mentioned above. It’s not anything to be afraid of, but definitely something you’ll want to work through using the methods above.
When you’re under a psychic attack, it’s hard to feel positive. Your belief system is affected, and you don’t have as much faith that the Universe is a friendly place as you used to. But fear not! This is part of the package of a psychic attack—and it’s 100% fixable. :)
Sage smudging, crystals, white light and grounding are all ways that you can feel better. It’s also helpful to understand psychic protection and why you need it. (It will help you see things in a whole new way!)
6. Headaches or Other Aches and Pains
Now, headaches can signal a wide array of problems, whether it be allergies or a cloudy aura. If it’s the last, your head may be indicating a psychic attack, which is no fun. And you don’t want psychic attack to start affecting you on a physical level (it’s already impacting you enough, eh?), so if you’re experiencing headaches in conjunction with other symptoms, let’s nip that in the bud!
One way you can do this is to have a Reiki or cranial sacral session. You can also balance your chakras, or meditate with a crystal on your third eye chakra.
Now that you know what the symptoms of a psychic attack are, here are some more tips on how to protect your energy.
Tips on How to Deal with a Psychic Attack
There are many ways people have tried to combat psychic attacks, including how-to books, ceremonies to clear the bad vibes, and most fun of all… Gwyneth Paltrow’s psychic vampire repellent. (Yes, it’s a thing!)
But the most important thing to remember when combating psychic attack is that love and light trumps all. Keep that at the forefront of your mind, and you’ll be on your way to a psychic paradise. And, of course, follow these tips:
1. Hunt the Good
When you’re feeling tired, lethargic, or down, find the good in your life. Draw back the curtains, light some lamps in your home, and turn on uplifting music. You can also take a walk or play with the dog. Or how about going to a butterfly garden?
You see the pattern here, right? Look for the good things in your life to combat that negativity.
2. Send Love and Light
There’s a practice in meditation that is centered on loving kindness. It’s a practice of sending happy, loving thoughts toward certain people in this world. These people can be family members, friends, or complete strangers. This practice brings more positivity and light into this world… more specifically, into YOUR world.
3. Cut Yourself Some Slack
It’s important to understand that psychic attack is not your fault. It’s also essential that you find emotional strength through it all.
Everyone finds emotional strength differently. For some, it’s a hobby. For others, it’s a phone call with a loved one. Set your mind up for positivity and strength, and you’ll be over your psychic attack in no time!
A psychic attack can be a real headache (literally, sometimes!), but it’s not permanent. View it as an opportunity to reconnect with your Higher Self and power through something. You’ll come out of it much more robust, and it’ll just be a quick bump in the road. You’ve got this!
