When I first got into Magick over a decade ago, I was being attacked by a psychic vampire. I now realize that what drew the vampire toward me was the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram since this was the only Magickal activity I was doing at the time. When you do the LBRP it draws away negative energy for a period of time. But at the same time it also draws the attention of many types of energy.
I used to go to sleep back then, many times very intoxicated since it was my college partying days. I would wake up many days extremely fatigued, not being able to gain back my energy till later on in the day. And I couldn’t figure out what the cause of this was.
Then one day I went to sleep completely sober and woke up in the middle of the night to a green blob of energy floating in front of me. I then saw it fly into my chest and instantly starting gasping for air. After a few seconds of fighting it, I saw it fly out of my body. As soon as it did I regained my composure and breath.
A couple of days later, I again woke up in the middle of the night when the dark green blob of energy was right in front of me. I instantly turned my nightstand lamp on. Then I put my hand into it and felt static like electricity. As soon as I did that, it again flew into my chest. I felt the pressure on my chest and was also gasping for air again. After a few seconds it flew out and I was fine.
The third and last encounter I had with it, I woke up in the middle of the night when it was in front of me, but instead of going for me it flew away from me. I realized that since I was going to sleep sober now, the vampire couldn’t have free reign with my body and energy. I find it interesting how my higher self was now able to wake me up at night whenever the vampire was approaching. It made me feel powerful in a righteous sort of way. And now, when fully conscious, I could sense any foreign energies/spirits when they are around. But this is due to years of growth.
Have any of you had similar experiences? What do you think of the LBRP causing a sort of beacon or sign in the astral that can make you a target to malevolent energies/spirits?
