However, as long as you stick with the following magical rule of Self Defense, you should be in the clear:
"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 we define some of the terms in the self defense statement so that there is no confusion.
Means upon body, mind or Spirit. A direct threat in spiritual, magical and witchcraft definitions includes attempts by any outside force or influence to drain your energy or impose their will upon you.
Means anything that is damaging to your physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual well being. It does not matter what the attacker's intentions are, only the results.
Means creating or permitting unnecessary opportunities for a known hostile being to attack you.
Means being overly pushy when you know someone has a particularly sensitive area or is under a lot of stress, whether it is 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.
Simple Protection Spell
Once you are clear that you are "in the clear" magically about self defense, you can use this simple protection spell to separate yourself from any negative power source--be that a person, place, thing, or even a negative statement or wish you made yourself!
1. Choose the person from whom you wish to disconnect.
2. Focus on that person with all your intention, and use a voice of command, out loud, to say the following ancient disconnect litany to the person. It does not matter that the person is not anywhere near you--the disconnect litany will disconnect you from that person, regardless of where they may be.
"I am neither your creature nor your get,
To be moved by your whim or your let;
I will go my own way,
By night or by day,
To serve my own purposes yet."
Pretty simple, pretty cool, right?
