How Can Medical Personnel Avoid Absorbing Negative Energy?
Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai, International Six-day Retreat, Bangkok, Thailand, December 30, 1999 (Originally in English) Videotape #680
Q: I deal with many sick people each day and I'm just wondering, apart from repeating the Holy Names when I'm dealing with patients, is there any other way I can protect myself?
M: If you don't protect yourself, it's OK. Do you mean from their sickness or from their energy?
Q: It's just that sometimes there are patients you don't even want to go near.
M:So if you're worried, repeat the Holy Names and immediately afterwards thoroughly wash your hands or any place on your body that's had contact with patients. Also, get some lemons if you can and at the end of the day or anytime you have lemons nearby, wash with lemon. It cuts the energy or psychic connection better. Use lemon and salt, but only use a little: just a few drops of lemon and some salt. Wash quickly, rinse and then shake your hands at least seven times after that to cut the psychic connection.
If it makes you feel better when you don't feel so well, do that. It helps. It doesn't have to be exactly seven times; more is OK. After the seventh time, you can shake your hands more vigorously. Since you normally touch patients with your hands, wash them and after washing shake them as soon as possible; then rinse with a lot of water.
