Psychic Attack

 the motivation, symptomatology, 
investigative approaches and possible treatments

Why is psychic attack performed?


1. the power-seeking of 'control freaks' who obtain a 'high' through their manipulation of others.  In some cases, this type of person uses power to assist his success in life, which is quite understandable, but his own success is never truly satisfying - others must be seen to fail!

2. obsessive desire/compulsion to possess that which normally one could not hope to have and hold by one's personal attributes.  E.g. the middle-aged, balding, overweight man who is consumed with lust for a local nineteen year old shop assistant.

3. jealousy of the good fortune or the justly earned rewards through hard work, application, diligence of another person. 

4. hatred - unjustified e.g. when a person is sacked from a position because of his/her own faults or when a person  is forced to desert his/her partner because of ill treatment - physical or mental.  Oh yes, and those who deeply resent others' refusal to give them undeserved assistance, information, material items, money or anything of particular value.  This hatred projected to the other person can take the form of spitefulness, malice, vindictiveness - call it what you will.

5. Resentment of another who provides assistance and quality time when the recipient is in trouble.  The assistance may be ongoing when the recipient appears to be an ill-starred fellow who cannot overcome the pitfalls of life. The assistance may be emotional support, guidance, financial, gifts of essentials or from the recipient's wish-list etc.. 
6. Addiction to and gratification from varying degrees of violence (from simple bullying to murder) and the power that it imparts.

When one tries to deny the existence of psychic criminals and their actions, it is advisable to ask the person if they can break a plank of wood with the edge of their hand or shatter a brick with the closed fist.  When they say they cannot, ask why not as you have seen such feats performed in a Japanese martial arts dojo and on film many many times.  No doubt they will retort that the students involved have been trained rigorously to achieve these skills.  You now can counter with the argument that if the human body may be trained to execute feats that the average person can not, surely the human mind may be trained similarly to achieve abilities that cannot be equalled by the common man.

(Dion Fortune, in "Applied Magic" chapter 8, informs us that "there are certain types of people with a streak of cruelty in their natures who take quite readily to the manipulation of evil for the purpose of vengeance.   Having experienced the results of their work, they develop a lust for it for its own sake and, therefore, become addicts of such cruelty on account of the thrill it provides".)

A powerful cursing ritual by experienced occultist(s).  A vortex of force is sent out using invoked power e.g. the negative aspect of an element or the Qlippoth of the Otz Chiim,   The negative force is then bound to a form to create elementaries, elementals or talismans etc.. 
The effects achieved can be such things as depression, apprehension, terrifying visions, nightmares, fires, forced accidents, illnesses of varying severity (physical or mental), whatever appears to be gross/constant ill fortune, death. 

From time to time a peculiar odour can appear in the locus inhabited by the victim and may range from that of rotting vegetation to bad drains.  At times it can disappear as quickly as it came. 

Bruises may appear on the body or feelings of sharp pains at parts of the body for no particular reason.  Sudden unexplained sounds e.g. bells, clicks or cracks.  The writer once experienced the sound of a violent crack as if a powerful electrical device had blown a fuse.  A similar situation occurred but this time of a visual manifestation, when a transparent bat-like form floated just below the ceiling and was seen by a number of people.   Watch too for what is known as the 'spin-off factor' where a close friend or relative can be affected by the negative vortex.

Work by an uninitiated amateur using spells & simple equipment such as candles, incenses, powders, oils etc..  This results in bad luck, failure in many of the things attempted, vague fear, depression, paranoid states, loss of confidence, proneness to accidents. 

If performed by a group of amateurs the symptoms could be similar to those above.

Most people do not realise the number of attempts of this nature made because of obsession, jealousy or hatred which appear to be proliferating thanks to the low priced books on spell casting. 

Unfortunately these are constantly advertised in the various horoscope, fate and fringe occult magazines on sale in just about every well-known stationer and newsagent across Britain.  The wording of the advertisements for these books is such that will attract those hell-bent on the manipulation of another's mind, will and very life, 

  • change another person's behaviour;
  • bring back a person who has gone out of your life;
  • make someone desire you;
  • have an affair with someone;
  • influence a judge or magistrate. 

A projection of negative force through a strong emotion such as hatred or jealousy. This is very often unconscious, but can be a deliberate act.  The projected thought, especially if accompanied by a willful look, i.e. glare of hatred, imprints the ill that is wished upon the aura which is a filter for all energy approaching one's body.

It has more to do with the thoughts of the ill-wisher than with the actual look of their eyes.  ('Malocchio' is the Italian for this where the practice is accepted and 'fatura' - the act of enchantment.) It may be constant ill-wishing by person(s) who have a strong dislike of the victim for whatever reason.   Results similar to 2 above.



The answer of one's own spirit to a destiny taken upon oneself which is at variance with one's karmic needs, i.e. going against one's own true will - following a path in life that is not right for one.  This again results in some measure of on-going ill fortune in social, family, professional affairs and in a well below-par health scenario.

Where does one find effective evil in our society - within a splendidly secluded villa where lurks a Satanist with sinister appearance and overwhelming aura of aggressive wickedness? 

Or should one seek beyond the bounds of contemporary city life to find a small but dedicated group of wild-eyed practitioners evoking ancient powers within an unwelcoming forest? 

Perhaps your concept of ultimate evil is the drug-crazed lout who murders the eighty-three year old pensioner in her bed to obtain the few meagre pounds in her purse.

"Thankfully", you reassure yourself, "I know none of the former and am of a robust age and physique which secures my peace of mind regarding the latter."

As one who has crossed the path of devotees of evil and have been instrumental in extricating the victims, I share this study with the average person who may be at extreme risk and perhaps already suffering the symptoms of a blighted life but totally oblivious to the origins of their afflictions. 

A wise sensitive said to me on one occasion: "You must realise The Devil never comes as a raging lion".  Oh! How very very true.

What one may find is the co-worker, neighbour, acquaintance, friend or even relative who is friendly and sympathetic and who appears constantly over concerned and ultra compassionate.   Such people in themselves are not to be made immediate suspects but should any seem to have even a fringe interest in anything occult, then that person could be added to a list of possible suspects - especially if their concern seems to cause them always to initiate the conversation re your downturn in fortune/health etc.  It may be worth giving a little thought to the relationship:-

  • could that person bear any grudges,
  • could that person have any dislike for reasons real or imagined,
  • could that person bear any real strong malice toward you,
  • could that person be envious of any factors in your life, work, relationships or special skills/attributes or even appearance,
  • could that person bear feelings of resentment due to your lack of reciprocity of a sexual nature?
Their 'appeared' caring could be what is termed in modern computer parlance 'phishing' - an endeavour to amass information but of a nature which shows that their ill-wishing is effective.  This is when to remember - there is power in silence, i.e. tell them nothing or even the opposite to what you are experiencing, thereby sapping their confidence in their own ability.

Yet another warning is necessary and which appertains to another seemingly innocuous sect – Spiritism.  I make no apology here for the use if this descriptor rather than that of Spiritualism for a Spiritualist’s aim would be to give their life over to spiritual matters of the highest order whereas a Spiritist is one who has association with the so-called spirits of the departed.

How can one be assured that the contact is indeed a departed spirit?  The spirit/soul of a departed and treasured relative or friend may be preoccupied with analysing their past incarnation – what has been achieved in spiritual growth, what has yet to be learned and what situations resulted in the choice of inappropriate actions. Such an individual would regard requested contact from one on the physical stratum to be an unjustifiable intrusion.

On the other hand, if one contributes to the theory of reincarnation, the departed soul, having been deceased for a very lengthy time,  may just have gone to the second death and the spirit to another earthly incarnation.  Whichever of these scenarios be valid, there remains a number of contact situations which cannot be of an authentic nature.  Then one must ask, “With whom or with what have you communicated?”.

In occult teachings there are such things as spirits of a lower order that inhabit various sub-strata of ethereal existence.  No doubt some may be pathetic entities while others are of a mischievous character similar to Puck in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.  There are, however, what is known as the Kingdom of Shells in Rabbinical philosophy – various negative reflections of each Sephira of the Otz Chiim or Tree of Life and which are regarded as the ‘sinks of iniquity’, domains of the vilest and most evil entities in discarnate existence.  It is conjectured that various individual specimens of discarnate life may temporarily take possession of an astral corpse, i.e. the decaying relic or soul of a previous incarnation for malicious purposes.

Again I must challenge the Spiritist, “With whom or with what have you communicated?”. 

If in regular contact with entities of a dubious nature one must consider the ill-effect and chronic consequences to the querent, especially if trance-states are operated.  Indeed the end result may be quite pathological both obsessively and clinically with disastrous consequences on the physical health and mental well-being of the seeker, the contamination entering through the vital body.

I quote from the preface written by William Emmette Coleman to the book 'Practical Occultism' by J.J. Morse, Psychic Book Club, London, 1956:-

"The educational and reformatory movement called Modern Spiritualism, has, in its inherent many-sidedness, developed variant phases of expression and action.  Coming in contact with individuals of almost every conceivable character, it has been variously interpreted and directed; and candour compels the assertion, that not at all times has the interpretation and direction given it been of the wisest and best.  In some instances its facts and truths - fraught with such momentous consequence to humanity for good or ill, according to the manner of their use by those to whom they come - have been perverted to unwise or harmful ends and uses, sometimes in ignorance, and at other times through misapplication for selfish or evil purposes."

There have been many persons of sterling character such as a late renowned deep-trance medium whom we knew - a lady who worked tirelessly with her group to help those who had been victims of psychic terrorism and who on occasions attempted to save a perpetrator from his/her malignant path.

On the other hand, we have noted one who desperately endeavours to attain an international reputation but who publishes books which are largely plagiarisms, scissors-and-paste pieces of work taken from others' publications and thieves portions of acquaintances’ time-lines in an attempt to authenticate bogus feats and activities prior to the commencement of her work of channelling. 

Alas, when reviewing the tragedies that have plagued those who have crossed her path, date of meeting the suspect, the modus operandi and the complete breach of coincidence, it is obvious the woman is a ‘black’ sorceress, paranormal malefactor, psychic terrorist, call her what you will.

Those who know of her and have watched perhaps a public demonstration of her psychism usually accept her well- rehearsed public image, saying, “Isn’t she so pure – isn’t she exceptionally serene”. As I commented previously on the caveat of a sound, gifted sensitive, I shall  repeat again his sensible observation –  “You must realise The Devil never comes as a raging lion”.


Ideally this should be placed entirely with someone who is sympathetic to the subject of psychic attack and who is experienced in at least one field of occultism.  This prevents the person so afflicted from 'jumping at shadows' or taking a path that leads to a paranoid state of mind.

What the afflicted person is to consider the mundane reasons for the negativity in their life.  If in the form of disease, then the person should place the symptoms before his/her family doctor who will then follow the usual course of referral for blood tests, x-rays, ultra sounds, scans and other non-invasive assessments.  After these investigations have been completed, they should follow the instructions regarding treatment given by a consultant. 

Once these basic investigations and treatment are over and no reason can be found for the symptoms & signs OR if the treatment of the condition does not result in the usual favourable outcome that is indeed expected, then and only.then should one have a psychic consultant review the case. 

They will ask:- 

1. when the trouble started and 

2. if the client has contact with anyone connected with or has a fringe
in occultism, psychism or mediumship.

3. If the answer is 'yes', they will ascertain if any acquaintances, friends or
    relatives have similar problems.  Here is where a simple diagnostic  tool
    may be employed - a circle with as many divisions that are necessary

    inserted into a Word page and enlarged.  e.g.:-

     All those  affected have their details inserted, one person to a division.
    This is where a modus operandi can appear that may expose the
    malefactor's contact and  methodology.  (S)he will be seen to occupy the
    hub of the wheel and the only one of the circle of contacts completely
    unaffected and possibly the only one with known psychic/magical

4. A time-line will appear from the above showing when each contact with
    the suspect became 'affected'. 

5. Next will be questions which will relate to possible motivation. (vide
classification of motivation.)
6. Then an analysis of further outbreaks or exacerbations of the trouble,
the client's sun sign, seasons, seasonal festivals, months, days,
    dates and
phases of the moon at these times of psychic invasion. 

7. These facts should also be required if any other contacts of the client be
    afflicted.  Here one may see indications of what is known as the
syndrome' which can affect a 'secondary target'.

8. Lastly it should be noted if the suspect has anything belonging to the

The investigator will have his/her own methodology, aims, general objectives and specific objectives to reach a conclusion and identify the malefactor.  One caveat:- those with the requisite ability and altruistic motivation to assist in such matters charge.nothing for their labours which is why we class ourselves as Consultant Metaphysicians (pro bono).  If, however, one must travel to the client, small contributions for petrol or for public transport fares may be asked if the distance is extreme.  Ergo, eschew those who require a medium to large fee for the operation.

It is important at this point to be absolutely honest in all your answers to the investigator.   Following the investigative procedure, the investigator will decide upon the mode of treatment of the problem.  Each practitioner will have his/her own particular choice of counteractantLeave all in their hands but give whatsoever feedback is required to help in their ongoing assessment.

1) I have found that an initial technique to assist in "clearing a space" around the afflicted person is the employment of hypnotherapeutic Subliminal Defence to alert the victim's own subliminal gnosis (i.e. the unconscious mind) to what is afoot and to join the fray. 

This should be performed by a competent metaphysician or hypnotherapist/hypnoanalyst who will provide also a corresponding audio tape or CD to which the person should listen daily. (The unconscious mind never sleeps and will assist even during sleep.)   Additionally, 'enhancement of the ego' techniques will erect some measure of confidence as an excellent barrier and buffer of support.

2) Simple prayers learned in childhood and in which one trusts should also be used to 'lift the spirits' - real prayer being the intense visualisation of a desired outcome accompanying the prayer or mantra, not simply the repetition of words alone.  (This fact is never imparted by the average religionist, priest, vicar, minister, if he indeed ever has learned this.) 

3) Simple visualisations by the person can strengthen the auric shield, e.g. the picturing of oneself surrounded in an egg-shaped protective barrier of two foot thick lead crystal loaded with blazing light which will reflect all ill back to its origin.  This is a daily morning exercise of perhaps about fifteen minutes.  Once this has been erected each day, the person must go forth to their daily routine with a boyant mental attitude of confidence that the shield IS working to absolute perfection.   In addition, the daily breathing in of Vital Power through lungs and every pore of your body is beneficial systemically.  Visualise the Vital Power as living, crackling, electric blue energy - a gift from your cosmic 'heavenly' Father.

4) Another ploy is to create a mental picture of one's house within a lead crystal sphere of three feet thickness, rather like the toy glass or plastic spheres with the scene of a house which is inverted and then returned to sit on its base so that 'snow' may drift down to emulate a winter scene.  Make this a daily evening visualisation exercise.

5) When these are erected, both personal & domestic, remember to give the shield a name, fill it with the creative energy from the cosmos or blinding white light and instruct it in its sole purpose for existing.  At all times, keep a positive mental attitude.

In the parlance of U.S. sales psychology - THINK 'WIN'!

Additional first aid in cases of psychic attack:-

Here are  a few possible choices of Bach Flower remedies

  • Aspen - fear of the unknown
  • Crab Apple - cleansing remedy (also for self-hatred)
  • Gorse - helplessness & despair
  • Larch - lack of confidence
  • Rock Rue - terror & fright
  • Sweet Chestnut - extreme mental anguish
  • Walnut - protection from unwanted influences
  • White Chestnut - removal of unwanted thoughts
  • Bach Rescue Remedies
Another possibility is the construction of a glyph such as that below.  Here is a chaosphere which may be constructed by a capable occult practitioner:-

A similar glyph is possible but using a treiskaidekagon (13 sided figure) with your name at the centre and the thurisaz rune in place of the arrows.  Why 13?  There are thirteen lunations in a complete year.



The thurisaz rune is affixed to each side of the figure - point outwards.
The above 13 sided figure & rune can be copied as a quick basis. 
Here one has to be familiar with the Elder Futhark Galdr.

Other methods of defence are mentioned
on the 'Psychic treatment' link.

One could also consider having a reliable practitioner construct a servitor using a gemstone as a physical base.  Some guidance can be found on Page D09 where the following may be beneficial:-

  • ivory or bone to provide spiritual protection.
  • onyx to provide protection from external influences.
  • sardonyx to guard against external influences.
  • lace agate to banish depression.
