The Quantum Mechanics of Self-Defense

In 1931, famed occultist Dion Fortune published a book on psychic self-defense. Since that time there have been numerous other books on the subject, all stressing the importance of traditional ceremonial magick rituals or the use of simple herbs and forms of sympathetic magick. They all have value, but they're also all very twentieth-century. Welcome to the future!

In Magickal Self Defense, retired police officer and Wiccan author Kerr Cuhulain achieves what many have claimed is impossible. He brings the concept of psychic self-defense into the twenty-first century by comparing ancient concepts with the latest scientific discoveries in the field of quantum mechanics. In doing so, he reveals why many old magickal techniques are effective and provides keys to improving them. He also approaches the subject from a Wiccan perspective, making this the first book to combine modern science, ancient magick, and Wicca for self-defense.

Perfect for beginners and experienced practitioners, Magickal Self Defense is so thorough that it is an instant classic. In the future, all books on the subject will be compared to this one, although with all this practical and usable information, it will be hard for any book to approach Magickal Self Defense. Learn:

• What a psychic attack is...and what it is not
• Situations mistaken for psychic attacks
• Symptoms of true psychic attacks
• How to expand awareness and intuition to be aware of threats
• Meditation techniques
• Magickal weapons and their uses
• How to "think" attacks out of existence
• How to develop sensitivity to psychic energy
• About the chakras and raising energy
• Different types of ghosts and how to deal with them
• Grounding techniques
• Binding, mirroring, shielding, absorption, and other defense techniques
• Dispelling myths

Above all, Magickal Self Defense is a practical book, filled with techniques you can use in your daily life and in the rare occasions when psychic attack does occur.

The Witch's Pyramid
According to Cuhulain, "The Witch's Pyramid is a five-sided model that helps us understand the interaction of five important magickal principles: ‘To Know, To Keep Silent, To Dare, To Imagine, To Will.' These five principles or axioms are the cornerstones of magick." Here you will learn how to apply all of these specifically to psychic self-defense. The truth, however, is that the more you learn about how to use the techniques described by The Witch's Pyramid, the more you'll improve all of your magick and your entire life.

Magick and Quantum Mechanics
In this section you'll discover the simple steps that make up the typical structure of a magickal ritual. First there is some form of purification, then a technique to achieve a non-localized state of consciousness. This is often followed by a meditation on the elements and then an invocation of deities or spirits that will assist in the magick. Then you raise energy, focus on the target of the magick, and connect to that target. Finally, you visualize the result and ground the energy.

Cuhulain explains that the visualization creates a "resonant template" that helps "collapse the multiple probabilities into the particular result that you want to achieve. You release the energy into the target while strongly visualizing the target achieved (energizing the resonance in the target)."

This is not your grandparents' magick! It's not even your parents' magick. This is something truly unique and modern and directed toward psychic self-defense. It's also an entirely new understanding of magick and the universe, and your part in it. If you're looking for a way to make your magick more effective, this is it!

Traditionally, when performing magic, a practitioner has an altar of some sort on which to work. The altar, of course, can be anything from an elaborately carved table to a dresser top or even just a cleared section of kitchen counter; any available space can be utilized as long as it is large enough to hold the necessary tools and spell items.
