Penczak is a great 101 guy, easy and clear and accurate. Not fluffy and not too complex either. I agree with J ennett's assessment of Fortune, but she is just a lot of fun to read and I enjoy the historical perspective.  I also think that if you are a ceremonial magic type of person, this is more useful. Her novels are a blast, if you are an early 20th century brit lit. kind of person.

I'm working with Witch's Shield right now. That's why I like Penczak. His stuff is friendly, accessible, and clear. I've been a practicing witch for decades, but I still like stuff that's easy to understand. (I guess it's the technical writer in me.)

I've also read Fortune's book. She seemed a bit paranoid on the subject, to me. I'm not going to worry too much about a hair stylist having samples of my hair.

Frankly, I think grounding, clearing, and shielding should be taught to newcomers. It should be one of the first things taught to newbie witches. A lot of people poo-poo the idea of psychic attack. On one hand, someone doing a full out black magic curse against another practitioner may not be that common, but it does happen. (It happened to me. First coven I was in.) And pagans are not all saintly, if you'll pardon the term. Some might decide to do a curse just to see what it does, or they think the other person "deserves it," or they feel powerful and want to flaunt it. If the victim hasn't been taught shielding and protecting, then some of that negative energy may well glom on to them.

Also, even supposedly devout Christians can stoop to the use of folk magic, if they think the victim "deserves it," or if Jesus told them it was okay.

And for my money, you don't have to be a pagan to deal a curse or a psychic attack. Sustained hatred and/or the wish to harm another person can send just as much psychic s*** as any ritualized curse. And they might have more psychic skill than they're aware of, too. Again, if the victim isn't versed in shielding and clearing, bad stuff could happen.

Another reason to learn clearing and shielding is to protect yourself from your own bad psychic stuff.  Any negative energy you've thrown out (and hey, who's perfect?) could hang around and mess up the works unless it's specifically cleared away.

Psychic Protection

Psychic protection and mental shielding are subjects that very few New Age teachers are willing to discuss with newcomers to paganism. It is felt by most "White Witches" that there is no need to protect yourself from negative vibrations and/or psychic attack. It is felt that unless one works with negative energies they usually won't interfere with you. It is also postulated by many that most if not all psychic attack is caused by your imagination and is not a valid phenomena.

All the above may be true, I've only been in the Craft for approximately 10 years and am only now realizing how much there is that I need to learn, I believe that true psychic attack is indeed a very rare phenomena as the law of attraction and Karma deters most followers of the old ways. However there is always that idiot who feels he knows more than anyone else and goes for the attack for invalid reasons. Also I feel that negative thought forms directed at you may also make your life more difficult. Barring all of that the energy you put into psychically protecting yourself is minimal, it won't do any harm and who knows it may protect you from unseen influences that seek to do you harm.

Read the Full Article

Really great article, very detailed; it's very timely too. These days, psychic protection is really a must, psychic attacks occur very often, and the number of psychic vampires have rapidly grown. This is a great material for those who are in search for more knowledge as far as psychic protection is concerned.  Smiley

I really haven't seen that many real psychic attacks in my lifetime. Psychic vampires have never been a huge problem. I don't know if their numbers are increasing, but I have doubts.

In my opinion, every one should be taught psychic elf defense, not just because it provides spiritual defence but also because it aids in creating mental boundaries as well, Defining who and what the person will allow to acess thier time and thoughts.

Those who are sensitive to subtle energies, are constantly around psychic vampires, or live in a city where too much psychic sludge has built up to handle should learn a more adept version than just the regular joes.

As far as some one getting a hold of a item you possesed and using it for a curse, I simply energetically release any items that may be used for that purpose. No energy connection, no sympathetic magic. I also employ a mirrored shield around my aura that is triggered by outside threats that reflects the negative seeking to harm me where it needs to go.

Of course karma will still happen and sometimes if negative energy gets slung my way it is my job to transmute it. Could be stuff I realeased in a past life just coming back to it's source. I would rather transmute the energy anyway then having it effect me later on in a different form.
