Well... Aye.

As someone who practices malefic magic, I always consider psychic vampirism a very different thing; it's not part of my grimoire. It is technically a psychic attack, but the reason I don't consider it a hex or curse, similar to the other examples in that section, is because there are (in my experience) three discrete groupings:

    1) Unintentional psychic vampirism: The vampire doesn't know they're doing it, and wouldn't choose to if they became aware. This isn't malevolent, but still needs addressing - there are technically two victims.
    2) Intentional psychic vampirism (consent): The vampire deliberately does it, but only with "donors" (Michelle Belanger, et al). This shouldn't need any attention at all, and is considered morally acceptable.
    3) Intentional psychic vampirism (non-consent): Deliberate, and without the consent of a donor - a predatory practice. This is where you need legitimate defence, as you're a legitimate victim of this grouping.
So, you see, depending on what's actually going on, your response to it should really be quite different. If you're under unwarranted and unwanted attack, then a requirement for defence is universal, but that doesn't treat where the intent lies.

Sadly, a conventional psychic defence isn't enough when you're dealing with the most powerful of these creatures... Be they intentional, or not.


I'm probably way late to give my own opinions on this. HAHA. But here it is...

The way I view Vampyres is the same way I view magick. If a witch or pagan curses/hexes another individual; is magick now considered a psychic attack? No, just that spell in this particular situation is considered a psychic attack assuming if the witch/pagan only had bad intentions. My belief is that both Vampyres and magick can't be absolutely evil or absolutely good. Its about what our intentions are behind what it is that we are trying to accomplish.

okay, so.. 2 days ago, I broke up with my boyfriend. He then send me a message, he would leave where he lives now as he got a job offer somewhere else anyway. My new glass token broke (from a necklace), and when I did the dishes, one of our glas bowls broke - it just fell on the ground, for no reason? When I went to work, I sat in the bus full of people. Suddenly, I had to cough, really a lot, and it felt I almost choked? When two girls get off the bus, and they looked at me from outside. After this, the coughing stopped.
I had this before, when working in a very spiritually tense environment. Can this be cursing (I'm almost sure it was, as it all happened in one afternoon). We are still fine as friends. So I don't think it was him. But I am almost sure it had to be something spiritual. Now, I am looking for some help for shielding, and how to do this? Should I again look into something I could wear on me, for protection? Thank you's.

Oh no.. How unfortunate! He was a source of knowledge and kind? Thank you Firebirdflys for your reaction, though. BB

Hi hummingbird. Breakups are tough, but natural. It's possible you've created a chain of stress reactions after breaking up. That made your hands clumsy so you dropped small things, and stress prompts subtle telekinesis that pushed the bowl away so that it fell. Stress restricts breathing & can make you cough like you heave. Other people can sense your stress so they stare. These are all natural and not curses or being over-looked. You said you'd had this before in a tense (stress provoking) environment.

You can help yourself decompress with simple exercise. Look on YouTube for ideas.
