In my previous lives as a spiritually inclined teenager, a training animist, an energy medicine practitioner and a spiritual coach, I learned and used a lot of difference protection techniques. My methods came from general ‘new age’ practices like reiki, the folk animism of my homeland, the energy medicine of my Andean training and the teachings of my own allies as they gave them to me.
The most important part of choosing a protection method is that it works; there’s just no point using any animistic tool unless it’s useful and practical in your actual life. So what worked for me and what didn’t?
I have to admit that against the demonic beings I was frequently confronted by, nothing worked entirely. I believe this is because they already had an ‘in’ before I was able to learn anything about protection methods. However, it might also be because nothing works particularly well against their type of energy, or because once you’re afraid of them, you’re letting them in. Or maybe I just didn’t discover anything that work specifically against them.
