I’ve been holding off on posting this question for a while now, since the concept can arouse a lot of fluff responses, and I’ve never needed to defend myself from any high level spirit, I have mostly good relations with all the spirits I’ve dealt with. I should make a distinction here though, I’m not talking about the Astral trash that you might pickup wandering through the Astral wilderness, or the small parasites that tend to just piss you off more than anything. I’m talking about full on, high level, godlike entities such as Azazel, Belial, Michael and potentially other deities from around the world.
My question, aside from summoning another entity, what ways (if any) are there for defending against attacks from such entities? If we are in fact “living gods” it should stand to reason that we would be able to stand against godlike entities on an even playing field. They hit you, you hit back harder at them kinda thing. The other side of it, is in the very unlikely event that YOU need to call up an entity to teach it a lesson or not to push you around. While I have very good relations with all the spirits I work with and have never run into this issue -and I suspect no one else has or they would have posted about it, what if a spirit breaks a pact? So for example, in the pact you specific that it refrains from doing something, and then for one reason or another it still does it and breaks it’s part of pact, are there ways to ensure that it doesn’t happen again? Pardon the pun…but ways to "put the fear of god (aka me…lol) into a spirit to make sure it doesn’t push you around?
I’m just curious if anyone has ever experienced (or ever needed to for that matter) a need to defend themselves against a godlike entities, if so, what methods would you /did you, use?
