Smudging is a great idea. And I thought I'd add that I've also had really good luck taking salt baths after an intense spirit event or after a tough empath day. There is something about rock salt & sea salt that really repels spirits and negative energy in general. Bathing in it really helps pull that off of you and the salt neutralizes it. And it is no coincidence that salt is a major component of holy water and in many religious rituals involving cleansing.
Usually a cup or two of the salt in a tub works. Just don't use table or kitchen salt as I've been told that since it is over processed it has a diminished effect. Sea salt is pricey and a little hard to get on short notice. You can get rock salt at most grocery stores from the baking aisle and it's reasonably priced.

Here's a link that I meant to send you a couple days ago about protection stones. The guys who host this website are apparently ghost hunters and have sourced over 50 references on protection stones to come up with a best of list:
I think most of what they listed for stones are accurate. But they left out Shunguite which I think is one of the best of the bunch.
If you had not gone yet and would like another tool in the toolbox, one I know of is an astral-protection tool I learned a while ago. Start with 3-4 deep belly breaths (diaphramatic breathing); ground yourself to the earth by channeling all energy to and from the ground, next using your mind with imagery - imagine pulling a large balloon over your entire body from the ground-up, after the balloon closes over your head tie a knot in it; the last step is to fill the bubble/balloon with your own energy - check for leaks and reinforce. This should do it and often helps to provide a great deal of shielding from future encounters or other unwanted energetic influences us Empaths normally would get. Remember to open the balloon again when needed or refill it for reinforcement. Don't forget, though, a grounded presence is a strength that hitchhiker hate - they are looking for holes to latch on to. That's the simplest explanation I can give for now. Hope this helps.
Thanks for sharing. I'm glad it went well for you. Maybe its better that it was uneventful. You don't want any hitchhikers following you home.
These haunted tours always make me wonder whether the spirits are long gone or whether they hide during tours (and perhaps come out at night). I did the Queen Mary haunted tour this summer. One room gave me an anxious, chest tightening feeling. But in all other rooms that were supposedly haunted I felt nothing. I also recently did a ghost tour in Jerome, AZ where the whole town is supposed to be haunted. I mostly felt nothing.
But like you, I usually come to haunted places pretty protected and wonder if I am muting things with all my protection stones.

I think in a lot of these organized haunting tours that the real spirits don't want to be disturbed by an invading group. And they probably leave for a while if they are able. We've had discussions on this site before about how the latest ghost hunting trend to invade haunted places is pretty unfair to these spirits that are trapped here for various reasons. I would imagine they don't like it.
Did you take any pictures? I do hear that on some of these tours you can get some good orb pics.
I did take pictures but didn't get anything but it was pretty dark, so most didn't turn out. Got bored with that and mostly just wanted to take in the feel of it all. As weird as this sounds, one of the reasons I went was I sometimes wonder if some of the stuff I pick up on is from the deceased or from living people so I wanted to see if the incoming info comes in differently and has a different feel so I can differentiate in the future. It has been hard for me since sometimes I pick up different emotions when there is no one else around. I have though, picked up things remotely so it's really hard to figure out where it all comes from. Although I have been aware of my empathness for quite some time now, I'm still learning.
cat-whisperer, when I look at that prison, I detect black swirling smoke much like that one shown in the Harry Potter movies. I suppose prisons are full of negative energy. So it may have been a place to practice your shielding. Personally, I would stay away from places like that. Hope all is well.
Yes, all is well. I have always been drawn to places with paranormal activity (normal people call me crazy). Since my awakening, it was more of a test to see if deceased energy feels the same a energy from someone alive. On occasion I feel different energies and had wondered if they are coming from this side of the veil or the other. My shielding and protection was working well that night. But I did get my answers that night as to the different "feels" of energies.
