Some Thoughts about Psychic Self-Defense and Spiritual Protection

Recently, I shared with all of you that I discovered that someone–a very stupid person, with way too much time on their hands–decided to hex me.

I was surprised, but when I realized what was happening, well, it certainly made a lot of things make more sense, and fall into place.

As a result, I felt led to create a series of videos about this topic on my YouTube Channel, and have each video be accompanied with a blog post from this, my professional, Metaphysically-oriented WordPress Blog, “This Is Who I AM.”

Witches, Pagans, Wiccans, and Magickal Practitioners are taught the Law of Three; that what we send out into the Universe, returns to us threefold.

In other words, the good, positive, Loving Energy we send out into the Universe is returned to us increased by three times.

Conversely, the bad, negative, hateful energy we send out into the Universe is returned to us, increased by three times.  In other words, three times worse than when we first had it.

However, so many of us who practice the Art and Craft of the Wise are not taught, or perhaps, Re-Minded that, we have the power to use our Magick to protect ourselves.  And we absolutely have the right to protect ourselves, and yes, those of us who practice Magick have the right AND the responsibility to use Magick to protect ourselves, our homes, our positions of employment, our loved ones, our animal companions, etc.

Nevertheless, one very important item is that we can use Magick to stop someone causing harm.

I shall give you a quick example of this.

More than ten years ago, I use to give Readings at a wellness center in the Midtown East section of Manhattan, NYC.  I was one of two Readers there.  The other Reader was a lovely lady, she was born in Russia, but she had been living in the United States for more than twenty years.

She was not only a grandmother, but she could certainly have been my grandmother; she was very nice, she and I would talk about the Tarot, Western Astrology, the various public venues at which we used to give Readings, etc.  She always had a smile for me, and we would always have these lovely chats in between Readings.

Now, shortly after I began giving Readings at this wellness center, I noticed that the number of Readings I conducted began to decline.  Both walk-ins, and scheduled appointments.  I recall one incident where my client (a semi-regular client who has been using my Psychic Services for more than twenty years), was told I no longer gave Readings there.  This was just one example of things like this.

Not at all coincidentally, at the time I had begun learning about Candleburning Rituals.  I knew that using a black candle was ideal for banishing and eliminating negativity, baneful (as opposed to black) magick,

I took a black taper candle, to repel any and all negativity being sent to me, “dressed” it with appropriate oils and herbs, but before doing that, I Spiritually Cleansed my home, and myself, cast a Circle, then took a nail (like the one used with a hammer) and carved the following words, going from the top of the candle to the bottom:




I then “dressed” the candle with the appropriate herbs and oils, grounded and centered my Energies, spoke Words of Power, lit the candle, had a chat with the Goddess, then allowed the candle to burn itself out.

In the morning, I gathered the ashes, spent wax, etc., then flushed them down the toilet.

Later that day, I went to the wellness center to give Readings, and as soon as I arrived, one of the co-owners informed me that the other Reader, that sweet, grandmother-type lady, fell, the night before, and broke her leg.

I was stunned!  I could not believe that something so bad could happen to someone so nice and sweet.

A few weeks later, I had a Reading with my personal Psychic Advisor, Roger Pratt, and I happened to mention this, and he looked at me.

I did not understand why he was giving me such a pronounced look, so I said, “Roger, am I missing something?”

Clearly, I was.

He patiently pointed out to me that I cast a Spell to take all the negativity being sent to me, causing me harm, to go back to those sending it to me.  And that THE SAME DAY I do this, someone who I thought of as nice and sweet, falls and breaks her leg.  And then he said, “You don’t believe that is a coincidence, do you?”

Given how often I told people about coincidences not existing, especially my clients, I knew it was not a coincidence.

Well, roughly a month later, this Reader returned to the wellness center.  She was not as nice as she was to me, she did not chat with me as often as she once did.  We rarely discussed the Sacred Tarot or Western Astrology, as we did previously, and she certainly did not seem as grandmotherly to me as before.

Coincidence?  Yeah, right!

I go into more detail in the accompanying YouTube video.  You can watch it by clicking on:







Thank you, one and all, for honoring who I AM and what I do.  Thank you for your kind words, to those of you who have sent Prayers and Loving, Healing Energies, and for your kindness and caring.

  1. Robert! First of all, I want to say I love you and I miss you. I miss your humor and your wisdom and your compassion – just you – face-to-face.

    Oh my Goddess, it is so hard to believe that anyone would wish you harm – and yet – and yet- I know it freakin’ happens. I am so sorry! You and I have been experiencing some parallels that are blowing my mind as I am watching this video. I have been out here living and loving nature, yet over the last decade, I have let my knowledge of the Goddess and practice of witchcraft slide. Though, this year (and over the last several years – some of this washing over me as I am watching your video) I am realizing I need to embrace who I am as a Witch with Power. I have been in hiding – and I can no longer hide.

    Sadly, I have experienced loss, too, due to emotional manipulation of others – and I have seen it so so so clearly. Relationships, promotions – crazy shit! I have also been wickedly psychically and emotionally attacked so surprisingly and intensely that it has thrown me off for almost this entire year. I couldn’t believe what I was experiencing – and yes, the attack was also confirmed by a psychic. It was this attack that made me realize I need to be out about who I am and who I consider myself to be. I am super nice and loving and compassionate – but don’t fuck with me. I am a Capricorn with four planets in Scorpio – Jupiter is about to conjunct my natal Jupiter in Scorpio – my tail is twitching!

    So, I want to thank you for the reminder of the ritual. Of course! I have been giving so much thanks to Source and Gaia and the Forest Faeries and Golden Light Beings for my life and the beauty all around me – and asking for guidance – it hasn’t occurred to me to ask for protection. I feel that your message is clear guidance and am so grateful for it. It is perfect that it is coming to me from a friend. I haven’t seen your video from the other day, yet, I shall watch it as well. There is so much clicking and switching on in my head right now that if I wrote it all down it would take hours.

    I could go on and on. Much love my sweet Robert! Stay strong. You look so calm and grounded.



    • Good morning, Holly, and a Happy Day of the Moon to you!

      I do not state this often enough, but I AM forever thankful to all the wonderful advice you gave me regarding starting my own WordPress Blog. And your Energy, and your face are massively missed, as well.

      Second, alas, I wish I could share your sentiment. However, in my life there are people that have wished me harm, and some of them came close to succeeding. Although I AM happier and healthier (both physically and emotionally), I AM well aware that there are people who allow themselves to be consumed by jealousy, pettiness, anger, resentment, bitterness, unforgiveness, etc. There are people who are more than willing, and frankly, very quick, to create unholy madness and unnecessary chaos in someone else’s life, than spend a fraction of that time and energy to improve their own lives. I see it far too often.

      One thing I love to tell my clients is that there is no loss in the Mind of Goddess. Loss is an illusion. My late maternal grandmother (a Sun-Sign Scorpio who, by virtue of being born before 1930, had as her ruling Planet Mars), has been deceased since 2005, and to this day, I have lost count of how many Psychics and non-Psychics tell me she is still with me. There are positions of employment I no longer have, but I have not lost money, or food, for that matter! Ha!

      Interestingly enough, I finally remembered your Christmastime Birthday, but I always remembered your four Planets in Scorpio, and now that Jupiter is Transiting in Scorpio, both of us can expect an increase in our Financial Prosperity. Although my Sun-Sign is Capricorn, as well, I always see more money coming into my life, and rather regularly, when Jupiter is Transiting in Scorpio, as opposed to Capricorn. Go figure! But I shall make sure to pay closer attention in two years, when Jupiter begins a new Transit in Capricorn.

      Yesterday morning, I conducted a Phone Reading with a regular client, and she shared with me her younger son is the most powerful manifestor she has ever known. And when she gave me an example of this, I told her that not only is he crystal clear and super specific in what he wants from the Universe, but it has never occurred to him that the Universe would not give him what he desires. This year, I have been Re-Minded of how powerful and, at times, necessary, it is to set daily Intentions, and I have other clients who do the same thing, and they do not lack money or food, either.

      As for “coming out of the broom closet,” that is such a personal thing, but given what you wrote, yes, I think it is time you do so. Frankly, given your connection to Sarasvati, and given how much you have Divinely Inspired me to not only talk about Her more often, but petition Her, as well, it makes sense to be so. And I must admit, I have no idea if the Ancient Hindus practiced Magick or Witchcraft.

      I AM honored that I was able to serve as a radiant Re-Minder of your Magick, your Witchcraft, your connection to Goddess, your right to have everything you desire, ESPECIALLY Spiritual, physical, emotional, financial, et al, Protection.

      Although I AM a Happily-Recovered-Catholic, I have a candle of Archangel Michael on both my Divine Loving Healing and Divine Prosperity Altars. I want all of the people whom I love and adore, and whom love and adore me, as well as my finances, Divinely Protected by the Divine Warrior of the Archangels. And who knows? Maybe calling upon Kali Ma is in order.

      As always, you honor me greatly, and as always, I AM most thankful.

      • Robert – Once again, thank you for the reminder that there is no loss. Again, I feel so many parallels happening. I shall let you know how things unfold.

        What an adventure life is!

        Thank you.

        Much love,


        • Indeed, Life is an adventure. Which is exactly what I have been thinking since the beginning of this year.

          And yes, please keep me posted.

          May the Goddess Lovingly and Lavishly Bless you with Joy, Riches, and Success.
