Why does everything major related to my ascent occur in the shower?
Today I stepped forth on the path of Vampirism. I had siphoned off large chunks of energy from a variety of friends of the family. It was working brilliantly hand in hand with the Black Sun ritual, and I could feel myself gaining more energy and livelihood as I fed. I use psi-balls as my means of feeding, and if you count Psionics as part of the arcane I’ve been a practitioner since September (though I hardly use machines).
I know what a foreign presence feels like, to sum it up.
I had been playing Diablo III when I felt eyes boring into my back and my psi-balls blocked from returning. I sighed and reached out for a connection, and did discover a foreign entity in the room. I gathered energy and banished it quickly. Little did I know that I probably should’ve looked for a ritual, because my simple spell was temporary.
When I went into the shower, I felt the spirit watching me and, being a practitioner of psionics, attempted to communicate with it. It didn’t want to go away. So I ignored it, but it then began to attack me. The attacks were slow, but I felt them. Three depressions appeared on a foot, looking kind of like bite marks, my began to pound as if it were a wardrum, and something latched onto my lower left back. I found it to be the entity, which through my vague astral sight I could see as a blue fog.
I used myself as an exchange system of sorts, gathering a large amount of energy and blasting it out in the exact spot. That drove it off. Immediately I mended my astral wounds, but still have the marks on my feet. I whipped up a shield layer, one with tornado-like force to repel attacks, and it hasn’t happened since.
I listen to music often, so I generally have headphones on. But that doesn’t make me deaf to hair raising calls for my name by unknown voices. I have a gut feeling that this is another practitioner, toying with me. And I want to take my turn.
So I need advice. Sigil magic, psionics, something for breaking this person. I don’t like being toyed with. I’ve already consulted Uncle Chuckie, but he seems to pair most of his major works with radionics- something I don’t have access to.
What I’m asking for is some advice for enacting vengeance, whether or not this is a spirit or a person. If a spirit, I’d like to crush it. If a person, I’m feeling like widespread pain should be caused.
But I’m new. I don’t have any arcane idea for combating it. So I’m reaching out.
EDIT: I’ve never had a history of mental illness, so I’ve ruled that out. I also fear that I’m too weak to actually do mental combat. And, a question to someone seasoned: Could this have anything to do with me beginning the Black Sun ritual? I only started yesterday.
