    Self Defence Against Dark Arts

    While people should not be fearful of dark arts, they should be cautious. Fear itself can do more harm to oneself than the dark arts that are directed at the person. Being cautious is not the same thing as being fearful. There are effective ways that one can deflect dark arts that are directed at them. One can, for instance, put up protective shields.

    Curiously, there are those who warn against deflecting dark energies back to the sender by claiming that the deflective response for self-protection is dark arts. Why would they give such a warning and discourage people from protecting themselves against the evil ones? Either it is because they are misinformed and ignorant regarding dark arts, or it is because they are deliberately misleading people. The latter may be indicative of the intention of those who give such warnings. It is probable that they are the very people who consciously practise dark arts and are fearful of the repercussions from the dark arrows they fling at others.

    In order to remind us of the dangers of dark arts, we should always bear in mind that there is black magic and there is white magic. In other words, we need to remember that there is good and there is evil, which are separate and distinct essences and forces in this universe.

    Everyone has a choice whether to choose Eternal Light or to choose Darkness. Those who practise dark arts have formed alliances with Darkness — they serve Darkness, which is where they will remain until Darkness is no more.

    In the coming days, the use of dark arts will proliferate. Already many ordinary people are complaining about their neighbours or enemies using dark arts to intimidate, harass or harm them. When these victims tell their doctors of these occurrences, it is likely the victims will be prescribed mind-altering drugs. This will not solve the victims' problems, but could exacerbate them.

    If people know how to ward off negative energies directed at them, they can alleviate or avoid many of the problems. Many workers of the Light who are parts of the Rescuers are equipped with the power to automatically transmute dark arts directed at them. When those who know how to deflect these negative forces back to the offenders begin doing so in self-defence, the offenders will begin to receive their own poisoned arrows manifold in immediate or delayed mode, depending upon the wishes of the deflectors. Remember, it is the intention of what you do that differentiates between what is good and what is evil.

    The senders of malicious dark arts will become consumed by their own fear and Darkness as more and more people consciously defend themselves and their loved ones from them. It should also be mentioned that upon physical death the malicious abusers of occult techniques naturally gravitate to the deepest, darkest recesses of the astral where they will be abused and exploited by other Dark beings.

    Unknown to most dark arts practitioners, their dark arrows can be "traced" and "observed" regardless of their attempts to cover their tracks. A part of themselves can be trapped if their intended targets are familiar with the control of subtle energies. It matters not whether the dark arrows were sent on the subtle or via imbedding physical items with negative energies, the arrows can be returned to the offenders. People should be aware that gifts, clothing, pets, quartz, jewellery, vehicles, shoes, food or other items could be imbedded with negative energies that are directed at the recipient with ill intent. Thus, one should be cautious not to accept gifts under suspicious circumstances.

    It is critical in self-defence against dark arts that the person is able to detect subtle attacks from those using dark arts. This is a skill that can be refined, however, some people will have more natural ability to detect and ward off dark energies than others. These are usually the ones who are self-taught because they intuitively learned how to control and manipulate the subtle energies in this Virtual Reality.

    Keep your spirit up.

    While some of this article is mildly informative I don't think this person is spot on in some of their assertions. First and foremost I see repeated here the most common New Age idea that has begun circulating ever since the birth of Wicca, perhaps earlier but I can find no earlier references.

    If people know how to ward off negative energies directed at them, they can alleviate or avoid many of the problems. Many workers of the Light who are parts of the Rescuers are equipped with the power to automatically transmute dark arts directed at them. When those who know how to deflect these negative forces back to the offenders begin doing so in self-defence, the offenders will begin to receive their own poisoned arrows manifold in immediate or delayed mode, depending upon the wishes of the deflectors.
    A manifold return does not make sense in the context of physical or metaphysical laws. Strictly physical you cannot get more energy out of a system than you put into it. In other words the Three Fold Law or any permutation thereof does not make sense in our physical universe. Now when I have posited this argument to people I am invariably told that physical laws do not apply to metaphysical mechanisms and that this was a form of Karma. Again this stems from a predominantly Christian, Western mode of thought. Christianity by it's very structure requires punishment be meted out to the wicked. Karma does not punish. Karma reacts. If you do something bad an equally bad thing will happen to you. Cause and effect. Somewhere along the line some New Age thinkers decided that Karma needed to punish and we end up with the Threefold Law and other unlikely scenarios regarding returns on energy and investment.

    My second problem is the unnecessarily dualistic and anthropomorphic description of existence. I do not disagree that there is light and that there is Darkness but, to equate them with good and evil is to apply concepts that only really apply to human beings. We are the authors of good and evil. The universe simply is. The implied combat between light and darkness is also a bit Christian for my tastes. Balance is the state of the universe, everything flawlessly functioning in perfect symmetry to each other. If you actually ever had a war between Light and Darkness and either side won it would be the end of existence. Either one is a void the only difference is the color.

    I find overly simplistic articles like this are written with more fluff than substance. I 'd be more interested in hearing about the exact process utilized in "deflection". I'm willing to bet it has something to do with "pure white light" or some permutation thereof. I can't count the number of times I've had to clean up after some New Age occultist fluff bunny who thought a malignant entity could be cleansed just by burning a little sage and commanding things in the name of the Light.

    My criticisms complete I'll actually offer some practical advice for anyone legitimately concerned with this sort of thing. First and foremost if everyone who ever cursed me was actually up to snuff I'd be dead by now. I'd say the majority of such threats are just a lot of hot air and anyone who has been threatened in such a way would do well to remember that. Now if you actually happen to come across the one person who actually has the mental discipline, the training, and the will to actually do you harm via magic then there are a few things you can do, none of which involve something as off as deflection. Firstly you can fight back if you know the person. The good old standby of the poppet works quite well provided you can obtain something personal from the person. This isn't always an option but, if you can there are several ways to go about constructing a poppet and a little research can find you a way you are comfortable with. The means of construction is not important so much as your will. You have to genuinely want to harm this person back, even kill them if necessary. If you can't do that then don't try to fight back.

    If you aren't the fighting type then I might suggest a little personal defense. For your person an amulet of cat's eye works well or , if you have a bit more money you could purchase Agrippa's Pentagram or a Devil Trap. The pentagram is supposed to be very effective against invisible or astral attackers while the Devil Trap is supposed to draw in malign energies and devour them. Once your self is secure then go about securing your home and your car. Bast is an excellent guardian of the home and a small altar set up for her along with proper daily or weekly offerings can help to keep you safe. The car I would recommend Mercury, watcher of roads and travelers. Obviously an altar might be a bit much in your vehicle but a likeness of Mercury, or his planetary sign, should offer you his protection provided you ask correctly with a proper sacrifice, the Romans would often leave an offering at a cross roads for Mercury before beginning a journey. Hopefully people will find this informative, particularly if they aren't up to date on their "deflection" techniques.

    TLR- I don't agree with the article it's too New Age for me. Read the last two paragraphs if you're interested in some alternative defense methods.

    This whole light/dark thing suggests a hierarchical dualistic system of thinking that I do not subscribe to. In my view if one looks into that white light too much one becomes blind like looking into the sun. In the shadow you cast can congregate all kinds of things to feed off off you and drive one to excess in the name of light. These things are not necessarily evil they just want to eat. More get created with these obsessions. It is much better to pay respects, without bending a knee, to the dark and see it for what is is than to be controlled by it. I have used protections and offensive majick to defend me and mine. While they did stop the problem at the time. There are consequences to ones moral sensibility for such things when you find out who may be on the other end of that retribution. For defense I consider things that ward harmful energies away or ground them out to be the best protection. If you are more adept placing your heart in a high vibrational state will disrupt the lower frequency energies and protect you also.
