As we increase our magical abilities, we will attract the attention of beings of different levels and some of these will try to interfere with our path in one way or another. Clarissa Estes, author of Women Who Run With the Wolves, states this as, "If you have beauty in your life, know that it will attract the dark as well as the light. Don't be surprised. Be prepared."
In our Magical Self Defense Homestudy Course here are some of the magical self defense laws that students learn:
"In cases of direct and violent personal harm you are entitled to defend yourself by any means available provided you did nothing to encourage or provoke the attack." Here's some definitions in the magical sense of this rule to make it more clear.
Direct – Means upon body, mind or spirit. A direct threat in spiritual, magical and shamanic definitions includes attempts by any outside force or influence to drain your energy or impose their will upon you.
Violent – Means anything that is damaging to your physical, mental, emotional or spiritual well being. Doesn't matter what the attacker's intentions are, only what he/she does.
Encourage – Means creating or permitting unnecessary opportunities for a know hostile being to attack you.
Provoke – Means being overly pushy when you know someone has a particularly sensitive area or is under a lot of stress whether it be internal or external.
By Any Means Available – Means using any means that you choose to defend yourself when attacked. As long as all the other conditions of this rule are met the Universe does not judge whether your response is excessive.
In some spiritual systems, it is considered a crime not to defend yourself because in so doing you are enabling the attacker to not learn appropriate spiritual behavior and impeding their spiritual growth. Any infringement on your sacred space gives you the right to defend yourself according to magical self defense laws.
Self defense tactics can come in very useful in a variety of situations and even be life saving, just remember to think them through and make sure you are on the right side of the self defense laws. Don't over-react, keep your cool, and make sure you are within your magical rights to use whatever technique you are considering. This will keep you in alignment with the Universe and prevent any backlash coming back at you.
