It feels like other people's emotional energy is causing me muscle soreness. What can I do?

I know technically believing that other people are putting feelings in your body is often taken as a sign of schizophrenia. However, according to Raj Persuad in his excellent book, From the Edge of the Couch, the current consensus on possession is that it is a psycho-spiritual issue not a psychiatric issue.
I feel like being targeted by an energy bully (read William Bloom's Psychic Self-Protection if you need evidence for the existence of those). I often get annoying muscle spasms and stabbing pains that feel like someone very deliberately poking or pinching me.
The pain is unpleasant but it's often accompanied by a strong, weird feeling of unease that makes the effect worse. I'm not being self-pitying, but these experiences are seriously messing up my attempts to diet.
For people in the know about what's possible with emotional contagion, could someone please explain a foolproof method for blocking negative energy?
Thanks for any help. Maybe one day society will master the use of positive energy. Then perhaps we can have what pastor Joel Osteen alluded to with his phrase "the future economy of Heaven."
