Warnings to the Wise


Because any actions you take of a spiritual or magickal nature can have such a large–and sometimes unexpected–effect on your life, I like to try to forewarn people.  In the future I will write more detailed articles on each of the items listed in this article.  For now, I’m just going to throw out highlights on subjects you should be aware of for both spiritual and magickal endeavors.

#1.  Meditation.
When some people first begin meditating, they do not realize they can separate their spirit from their physical body.
For those who find two of their three selves separated during meditation, the experience can cause a minor (or major) freak out session.  Even if it only happens for the span of a heart beat–freak out city!
Then, there are those who do not protect their spirit (and body) from coming into contact with unwanted entities that exist in the non-corporeal realm.  Again, not a pleasant experience if this were to happen to you and you weren’t expecting it (and had not protected yourself from it).
*  The average person probably doesn’t have to worry about this event happening to them.  Very few people are strong enough–on an energetic level–to spontaneously separate spirit from body during a meditation without intentionally trying to do so.  However, suppose you are one of those “few” and just didn’t know it?  So, always, always, always be aware and in control of where your spirit is drifting off to during meditation.  Protect yourself spiritually.

#2.  Before you try to perform any ritual, know how to protect yourself.
Magick works! 
When you perform rituals (aka: spells), you are using physical tools to guide and redirect the non-physical flow of energy; to cause a shift of something in the physical realm.
*  In a sense, anyone who performs rituals is partially entering the spiritual realm.
*  The “wall” that separates our physical world from the spiritual world is kinda thin.  You perform a ritual and you are creating an opening in that wall.  The opening allows all kinds of nasty little entities to come through into the physical realm.  Those lil evil spirits will then attach themselves to you and begin to redirect your life in negative ways you never thought possible!  So first order of business before attempting to cast any ritual, know how to create a protective circle and know how to dismantle that circle!!!

#3. There are all kinds of “quick spell kits” available for people to buy these days.
If you were wanting to lose weight and I handed you a pill and said, “here. Take it.  It will make you lose weight no matter what you eat!”  You don’t know what is in the pill, what the side effects are, and you only have my word that it is just going to make you lose weight.  Would you swallow the pill?
Quick spell kits are like that.  Everyone wants a quick fix.  Cool.  Why take a cross-country trip in a horse and buggy if a private jet is available, yeah?  So, I understand the inclination to grab that quick fix.  But…if you do not have the knowledge to understand what you’re doing and you just follow the short directions included in the quick spell kit?  There may just be some side effects you do not want to deal with.  And, if you do not understand your role before, during, and after a ritual, there is a better than average chance the outcome will be the opposite of what you were wanting to achieve!

#4. The spoken Word is extremely Powerful!
The words you speak help to create your life and life experiences.  The words others speak about you also help to create your life.  When it comes to performing a ritual, the specific words you use during that ritual are of the utmost importance.
It is important to understand and be aware of how the words you speak on a daily basis as you go about your life have a very powerful effect on what you do and do receive in life and, on the outcome of any rituals you may perform.

I am constantly coming into contact with people who “speak into existence” that which they do not want for themselves (and others).  My left eyelid practically starts twitching with the need to make them aware of what they are doing.
Here are examples that either you yourself say or you hear others say, on a regular basis:
* “I can’t lose weight.  Nothing I try works!”  (and your cute lil chunky butt could be given the Holy Grail of diet pills & guess what?  You would not lose one single ounce!)
* “I hate my job.  I need a new job! I hate coming here!”  (And at some point you are going to lose that job!  If you haven’t prepared, you’re going to be freaked out when it happens!)
*
“He’s cheating on me.  I know he’s cheating on me!”  (and…guess what?  Even if he’s not cheating now, you keep making these statements and it is going to happen!)
Just in reading the former three examples I’ll bet you can pull up memories and find where you complained (or worried) out loud about something and then later that exact thing happened.   So stop now.  Retrain your mouth before you create anything else you do not want.
Now.  How does the aforementioned warning relate to performing rituals?  Well, when performing rituals you are told to use well-thought out, specific wording.  The reason for this is because the words you will be speaking are going to be helping to direct the energy you will be gathering and building upon during the ritual.  Your words will become a command; an order for energy to travel in a specific direction.  The direction the energy travels will create the change you will later see in real life.  If you are not clear and specific in your directions, the outcome of your ritual will be wonky.
Additionally, if you are specific in your wording during the ritual but then you later make statements that negate the order you gave during your ritual?  You have just sabotaged your ritual efforts and possibly created the opposite outcome.  In which case,  you would have just been better off had you never performed the ritual.
*** Last but extremely important warning here: Never, ever, ever talk about your ritual with ANYONE.  Like, no one.  I seriously cannot stress this warning enough.

#5.  Toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe.
You can use whatever word/wording you want–Energy work, Candle work, Visualization using incense and candles, Ritual, Spell, yada, yada.  I think I’ve pretty much heard every term and description there is.  Call it whatever you’d like to call it but let’s take the tuxedo off of the pig here, shall we?
When a person focuses their energy, visualizes, stares at a candle flame and projects energy outward….they are doing a ritual, aka: a spell!  Speaking only for myself, I use the Olde name–ritual. This term just feels right to me.  However, I do know I am performing what most people would term as a ‘spell.’ 

The people I’m addressing here are the ones who would tell me, “Well, I haven’t done any spell work, but…I have been doing some energy work on him…”.  And when I hear this, my response is, “uh-huh…sister, you call it what you want, but that’s a spell.  You can dress a pig up in a tuxedo and pretend it’s not a pig but, when that pig gets nekked, it’s still gonna be a pig!” (I’ve lived in the South too long.  Can you tell?)
So, if you are the type of person who has issues with another person who ‘performs spells,’ then you have absolutely no business doing any kind of energy work, candle work, visualization work, or whatever other term you may try to use to avoid owning the fact that you are doing a spell!

#6.  Using a ritual to force another person to do __________.
It is becoming more and more popular to either perform a ritual or have someone else perform a ritual in order to make someone else do something.
* May I first say: Karma.  She’s a bitch.  She is a BIG bitch! Whenever a ritual is performed for the specific purpose of forcing another person to do something you want them to do, you are messing with their Free Will.  If that person did not, in some way, give you permission to mess with their free will?  Well, as Boss Hogg was known for saying, “there is gonna be consequences and repercussions.”
* Second, you are energetically tying yourself to that particular person and their Fate–their Life Path–for this life (and maybe, the next Incarnation, as well!).  So months or years down the road, what happens if you either want to sever ties with this person or they severed ties with you?  Do you know that you will still feel tied to them; even after they are no longer physically part of your life?   YOU will be unable to “move on” as the other person does.  Why?  Because you tied yourself to him/her in a much more serious way than a mere marriage certificate.  You tied your spirit to theirs.  Unless undone with another ritual (that you better pray works!), you could be tied to that person for years, and yes, even decades.
* Third, if your ritual is for romantic purposes, do you really want a man (or woman) that you have to force to be with you?  And if you are of the mindset of “yes because if he/she will just be with me, they will fall in love and want to be with me on their own.”  Okay.  Now.  Come back to reality.  If one goes to the extent of forcing another to their Will through rituals, then one is also prone to excessive worry, doubts, negative thinking, and insecurity.  So saying:  you may be able to be with that person via that ritual, but will you ever have any peace of mind?  Will you ever feel secure with them?  If you believe your answer is yes, then cool.  On with the ritual!
* Fourth:  a little known fact.  It is something that people who have knowledge and experience in casting rituals know but most of the people who pay to have rituals cast for them do not know–you can perform a ritual to make another person do something.  But the effect is not permanent.  The compulsion this other person feels will wear off.  So you have to keep doing the ritual, forever and ever, amen.  Plan on it.

Okay, I think that’s it for now.  But I reserve the right to add to the list whenever I happen to remember another warning (as I invariably will since I am so bad at remembering every thing I need to tell people all at one time!).

Practical Psychic Self Defense by Robert Bruce



What if you were told some of the negative thoughts and some of the negative emotions you had were not your own?  What if you were told that at least a portion of the actions you’ve taken, that resulted in harmful personal experiences, were not actions you had taken of your own Free Will?  What if you were told there was some invisible succubus compelling you to say things, do things, that caused you pain?  Would you believe?  What would it take to make you believe?  And if you began to believe, would you be willing to take the steps to protect yourself from the entities so that they could no longer effect your thoughts and actions?  This book addresses those issues.  It also addresses how to build a shield to protect yourself.

I like this book for the simple fact that in reading it, most people begin to experience an “awareness” of the spiritual realm they didn’t have before.  In turn, a curiosity to dig further and investigate more develops within the reader.  While a few readers will discover they have experienced some of the more bizarre and seemingly impossible occurrences Bruce writes of, most will just realize that developing a psychic shield has it’s merits.  The latter will then be able to hone in on the best method of psychic self defense for them (whether it is by using Bruce’s teachings or another’s).

I am hesitant to recommend this book to a “beginner” for the simple fact that near the mid-point (and going toward the end) of the book, the author begins to detail ideas and experiences that would seem outlandish and sci-fi oriented to the general public.  However, what seems crazy to those without knowledge and experience makes perfect sense to those who have personally experienced some of Bruce’s claims.  So although I am hesitant to suggest this book, I think the information contained within it’s pages is important.  People need to understand what can happen if they do not protect themselves.

See, a lot of people believe in the devil, believe in demons, but they are unaware there are different types of demons. Some demons are merely blobs of energy that feed off negative emotions. These negative entities (henceforth referred to as “Negs”) want to be in the physical realm that we humans live in but they cannot because they do not have the physical bodies we have. So in order to stick around, they have to feed. Their food is negative emotion. They are “energy parasites.” Feeding does not allow them to take physical form, but they have the next best thing in being able to hang out in our world via attaching themselves to humans.

Negs neither want to kill you, nor do they want to “devour your soul.” No. They want your life to be long-lasting and as miserable as possible so they can keep feeding off of you and stay where they want to be–in our physical world. Someone who does not have a “defensive shield” built around them would be easy prey for these Negs to feed on. Someone who has psychic ability but is unaware of that psychic ability, is more likely to attract Negs. Psychics have a higher energy vibration; causing a larger energy output.  Just as a lion would prefer a fat gazelle to one that was skinny, so do Negs.  In the non-corporeal world, psychic energy is similar to a beacon of light in the dark. The Negs are drawn to the light. The brighter the light, the bigger the target you are. So the Negs seek out the people with psychic ability. Empaths and Clairsentients are particularly vulnerable to Negs.

Since Empathics and Clairsentients (see my other blog entry on traits of an Empath or Clairsentient) are the least recognized psychic talents, they do not recognize their “gifts” and do not realize their heightened vulnerability.  They do not know they need the “defensive shield.”  Therefore, Negs come into their lives, cling to them, and feed off of them by creating negative emotions which cause the Empaths/Clairsentients to take the negative actions that create negative situations, and negative circumstances.

When a person takes an action they know they shouldn’t take because it will most likely cause a negative outcome, a Neg will be that little voice in a person’s head that says, “screw it–I’m doing it anyway!” And then, when the action the person took turns out badly (thereby causing the person to feel sad, depressed, angry, worse about themselves), more negative emotion in the person is produced. The Neg feeds off of that excessive emotion.

A good example that I often see of negative behavior or action that causes a negative situation: people who begin (or stay in) relationships that make them feel bad about themselves.
A detailed example: when a woman first starts dating a man she feels a compulsion to hurry up and secure that relationship. So she constantly calls (or texts) that man–even when the man doesn’t respond. She calls him once and receives no answer. So she calls again. No answer. She waits, calls a friend and talks about the man not answering and what it could possibly mean. Then she waits some more. Still no answer from him, so she “accidentally” call again (I believe the new phrase is “ass dialing”). He finally answers. He says he wants to see her. Whew! What a relief she feels! So she sees him, then he disappears again.  In her rational mind, the woman knows this man is not treating her right.  Heck, she doesn’t even know if she really even wants that particular man!–but the increasing negative emotions she feels compels her t to keep “chasing” that man down.  This merry-g0-round relationship continues for several months before ending.  Then, this woman will continue to meet new men where the same exact cycle happens. Thus providing an “endless buffet” of negative emotion for the Neg to feed off of.
** If you didn’t see the roller coaster of emotions that occur within people who have these types of relationships, go back and read that again.  Look at all of the anxiety, frustration, fear, doubt, self-doubt, low self esteem, anger, etc, etc, that such a situation would cause! That’s a lot of energy for the Neg to feed off of.

Now. Could it be that women who have these type of relationship cycles just have some emotional issues (baggage) that makes them continue to pick crappy men who always treat them bad? Yes. But, could they also have a Neg “attached” to them who compels the woman to take actions that cause negative emotion so the Neg can keep feeding?  Yes.  In considering such a possibility, I often wonder how many people that have been diagnosed (or left undiagnosed) with some mental/emotional issue really do not have an issue at all. For that matter, how many negative habits and/or addictions truly belong to (or began with) the individual?  I wonder how many are really just plagued by a Neg…or two…or three.  To quote Shakespeare, “there are more things in Heaven and Earth…”

I am not making excuses for people’s ill-behavior or for habits/addictions people have.  I am just considering the possibility that the behavior, habit or addiction a person has was induced by a Neg.  There is no way to know for sure.  It would be nice if the entire world could be explained by what we can physically see and touch, but 99% of the world’s population knows that is not the case.  So we just do not know. Humans are still learning about all of the possibilities regarding how the non-physical effects our physical world. So. How would you know there is a Neg around you? Well, you can’t, not for sure. It’s not like you can say “Hello? Neg? Are you there?” and they’ll answer you (by the way–if you try such a thing and you receive an answer–you have a much bigger problem on your hands than a Neg or two).

If you find that you often take action(s) you logically know you shouldn’t, but still take the action (or feel overwhelmingly compelled to) anyway, it is quite possible you are being given a nudge to create a negative situation by a Neg.  It is also possible you are receiving the compulsion for action from another person (and perceiving it as your own), but that is another topic in and of itself.

As for “defensive shields,”  I believe it is a must-have for all people, but most especially those who have psychic abilities.  Some people may feel differently but speaking for myself, I would rather be “safe than sorry.”  I have a veritable steel wall around me that I keep in place–against Negs and anything or any body that might try to infiltrate without my consent.  Because of how I’m made up, I have to have it in place.  I learned that early in life, long before this book was written by Mr. Bruce.

The information you find in the author’s work is an eye-opening experience.  In recommending this book to people, I am not saying it is the end-all-be-all on the subject of psychic self defense.  What I am saying is that it is a good start in understanding the concept and an easy read for those who are unfamiliar with how the non-corporeal can effect our physical lives.  As a rule, I would never take just one person’s teachings and pattern my life around those teachings.  But I firmly believe the average person should have a psychic shield up and that goes doubly for anyone who has any type of psychic abilities.

Even if one bought the book and just read the first few chapters, it would have been money well spent!
