just habit really... I started back when I found out I am a psy so as not to snack by accident

The thing is when working with energy and magic you light up on the astral realm, all entities good bad and indifferent see that and want to know what's going on. They come to check you out, if not properly protected they may latch on (sometimes called a "rider")
A charged and programed amulet is good for general protection of the self, and more layers can be incorporated depending on which realms you intend to travel, daily sheilds are good for all the free "radicals" (people alive or dead or other) that we encounter in a day. Physical sheilds can be for longer term protection against certain energies in your home or elsewhere, or for empowerment to the seeker who is doing dark journeying. When stepping into a magic circle cutting protection around yourself or setting up sheilds and wards are important, then one can invite those they wish to work with. Because everyone will come. We have gotten into the habit of leaving some sort of offering on the outside of the circle so those not invited in can keep themselves amused with coins or candy and thereby not be angry they were drawn to the energy but not asked to play.

Add silver to the mix, so for example, braid the copper with silver. The Good Neighbours are really rather fond of it.

@ Firebirdflys

"When stepping into a magic circle cutting protection around yourself or setting up sheilds and wards are important, then one can invite those they wish to work with. Because everyone will come."


From my book :

"In her shamanic workings, the discovered if you build a field of energy,all your relations begin to arrive, just which ones always dependent on which harmonic welcome mat you laid at the door to the Otherside...

Just had to be careful of what you asked for, and what signpost you hung, and make sure you were ready for company...

Some strangers were strange in deed...

Let alone word...

And uninvited guests , could be hard to get rid of...

She had to use astral pest control more than once...

Flee, Fly, Flow, and be flummoxed...

An astral mirror may need perplexiglass...

On any two way street...

She despised psychic vampires when they drained her, without permission...

Human, or otherwise..."

I remember reading about a similar concept on a chaos magic forum years ago. People would create astral suits of armor with different properties and assign them a sigil and mantra to summon them with. Sort of an open source astral armory.

Sounds like something I might look into. I never considered makeing astral weapons although I'm used to enchanting.

Okay I am very interested in reading this, so I actually did sign up, but then you have to go through a bunch of red tape, verify your account, and after all that you still need to wait for approval. Think you could just copy paste it?
