Overview

Is it possible to gain spiritual enlightenment even in difficult or threatening situations? What is the nature of evil and the role of seemingly bad things in the universe? In this thorough and thoughtful protection magick handbook, you are urged to take responsibility for your own actions, ask what you might learn from any situation, and hold compassion for those you may view as doing harm.

Popular Wiccan author and teacher Christopher Penczak takes a threefold approach to protection magick in this guide for Witches, Pagans, shamans, and psychics. First, find out how to protect yourself using personal energy, will, and intent. Next, discover how to connect with your guardian spirits, angels, and patron deities. Finally, learn how to use traditional spellcraft and ritual for protection.

This comprehensive guide to psychic self-defense and protection magick also includes an audio CD of protection meditations read by the author.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Penczak (The Inner Temple of Witchcraft; Gay Witchcraft, etc.) fills a niche need with this balanced daily approach to psychic wellness. This is a clear, accessible, and useful manual for those who wish to align their will regularly with nature's processes and elements for healthy living. Beginning with the premise that "ninety percent of all psychic attacks are not attacks, but self-created illusions," Penczak goes on to delineate the genuine need for protection from such forces as physical harm; harmful energy, judgments and projections; evil eyes; time traps; psychic vampires (drainers of energy, vitality and emotion); unenlightened gurus; past life energies and last but not least, oneself. Subsequent chapters discuss the symptoms of a person in need of psychic protection, then describe methods of diagnosis and physical, emotional and spiritual self-purification. Penczak identifies graphic protection symbols (designs, stones, etc.), as well as tools to evoke protective spirits. The book's real philosophical beauty is in the final chapter that addresses the dilemma of competitive magick. As Penczak sagely observes, "When we put our energies into fighting each other we forget we are of the same tree, same roots, nourished by the same spiritual source." This is a wise, helpful book for beginners and intermediate students of the craft. (July) Forecast: Penczak will promote this at BEA in Chicago, and in four other cities.

A friend recommended this book which I thought was strange considering I do not practice withcraft. I recently became ill and was hospitalized with a stomach disorder. I started reading the Witches Shield to find that the protection I needed was from myself. Learning how to protect my bounderies, personal space and my interactions with others was just the medicine I needed. The book comes with a meditation CD which is as valuable as the book.
