Protection | Forum

Having hung with Spiritualists, etc, a lot in my life I have heard endless drones about the need to invoke protection. ...You should protect yourself before doing any sort of psychic work or conjuring, or entering a haunted house, or standing next to people, etc. Lol.


I tend to feel that expecting that I am protected is protection in itself, and to get overly paranoid about invoking protection would actually counteract my natural protection and weaken my instincts or sensitivities. I feel that needing to invoke protection is a sign that you are afraid and that is likely to leave you more unsafe... 


It is funny because I don't feel particularly safe in the physical world, but in supernatural or paranormal areas I actually feel fine for the most part.


One thing I do lay down a rule with is Ouija Boards, and that is because I am not experienced or educated with them and only have all the urban legends to go by. Lol. In other words, my mind is more vulnerable to influence or trickery... So before starting I declare that when I light a certain candle, communication is open and when I blow it out it is closed - end of story. And maybe certain situations, if I feel vulnerable, I will request I be protected, and that is about it. 


I feel that you can't be harmed unless you can firstly be tricked into believing that you can be harmed. (That is one of the things I love about the Devil card in the Tarot).


Am I being naive, or is the need to be protected over-dramatised? Or both?

It's not that I don't believe in them - I just don't have a lot of experience with them and because such notions can be blown out of proportion I'm not sure what to take seriously. That is why I started the topic.


If you don't mind sharing... What unwanted forces are you referring to and how can they affect you.

Protection?  I don't need any protection,  because I am the one who knocks.

Protection might not be needed for all situations. But if you wake up with hand shaped bruises all over your body and you know that no physical person was in your house that night. You might start thinking that you want protection from what exists on the other side.

Agreed. Protection from what? The powers and forces you call upon for help? If greater magic does exist, that would mean entities or forces. I think it would be disrespectful to call upon them and then to ' protect' yourself from what you are arrogantly asking about.

I am not a believer in greater magic. But, I do believe I could be wrong. Just like that time on the bus when I thought it was a fart and I was wrong and hit mud. Yeah, little surprised but I was clearly wrong. And, if I was a entity of power or a force, if you made me put down my beer to help you with your petty wishes, only to cast me out I would destroy you. How dare you waste my drink.

I agree with Zach. If there are other entities or forces out there I would belive they might just be living their own lives and would not want to be disturbed for some little person trying to command them like a microwave. They might want to attack that given person for messing up their day.


 Then again I also think that if they notice you can see them, when they are out doing whatever they do, they might just be bored or curious enough to mess with you for fun.

Don't people use magic to summon demons and other such creatures? Plus if some of these creatures don't like us humans why would they want to help?

So what is to stop them from coming back afterwards and attacking that person for force summoning them?

Ok I get that. However if someone did not do the ritual right or the demon tricked them into not sending it back the demon could still walk around messing with that person or others. Right, therefore additional protection might be needed as a precaution. I'm also not convinced that they couldn't get though the gate on their own.

"Oh gates of the  Abyss be opened wide,

Come forth oh ye millions of Demons, 

Take possession of the bodies of those humans

Who love ye and have made their souls living temples 

Of the mighty army of Hell, destroy the fearfull and

Enjoy the fellowship of the powerful who have removed

Their doors of fear and have taken ye as their own."

Oook. So you need help from a Godlike being for protection wile becoming more godlike?  Wouldn't it be easier to learn to protect ones self. Rather then allways asking for help?

Magic is both learned and developed. You have to learn magic just as you had to learn to walk. It is not something that you are born knowing how to do like breathing is. O_o Also it's one thing to inspire to be like God or to have god like qualities, it is another thing to assume instant equality.

Quote from FraterLuciferi Magical skills are not learned but developed through years of practice...

Anyways.....  back to the subject. Protection isn't really needed unless you are being attacked or doing the attacking.  With the spiritualist they often warn about being attacked by other people's emotions or energys. But if you have a strong personality and know who you are down to your roots then I dought anyone can make you feel anything other then what you want to feel. Then again if someone is draining you of energy or emotionally draining you,  you could just walk away rather then trying to "protect" yourself.

Unless someone is SUPER sensitive, bit off more then they can handle, or happened to attract the attention of something really powerful (probably b/c they where doing something stupid.) Protection isn't really needed. 


However what I said in the last post was to go back to what the person who started this forum was asking about. The spiritualist allways post about protection from energy vampires. People who emotional drain you or drain you of energy. Unless I am mistaken.

I was talking about protection from psychic vampires but also during psychic and magical work in general. So people, spirits, demons or whatever. I was interested to know how other people think and feel about protection as there are so many theories and rumours. I appreciate everyone's input. : )

I think that the fainting hearts and broken minds by fear invented some ways of protection against the unknown,  demons and ghosts. Some of those melted hearts by fear created the  Arcangel Michel and so forth, they created the legends of the Holy Water , silver medals, wooden sticks ,etc. It has been a good business for those who know to play the Devil's game. I need to be of a strong mind to put my foot upon my fears and be able to enjoy the power of darkness, to live free in my kingdom and not to be a slave of somebody's legends.
