This came up in a discussion with Zoe in another thread and I wanted get peoples views, and it would be great to get Erics if he sees it.
I think there are a number of cherished fears for people who are working or thinking of working with the LHP. One that has came up a lot already is karmic repercussion for harming others. I’m surprised the issue of involuntary possession hasnt came up more yet.
Its not just Hollywood that works up a story on demonic possession, the Catholic church is still pretty big on it too. The Roman rite of exorcism is still taught (though not to many) and still used. You dont have to look far in either popular culture the internet or indeed the bible to find stories about possession…
So how much of a risk is this in practical evocation? Is the person inviolate unless they offer to be a ‘horse’ for a spirit? Can we get an evocation ‘wrong’ and be at risk of possession or as Zoe put it undue influence and manipulation by an entity? Are their different risks for different levels and types of spiritual being? My intuition is that we would need to open ourselves voluntarily for this to occur, but then there does seem to be accounts of this happening involuntarily to some.
