Hi, beautiful JillBlack! Was wonderin’ where you’ve been hiding yourself! It’s always a relief to hear back from someone, that I haven’t totally run 'em off!
Now then, a little further input regarding the Circle … You WILL reach a point when the circle is no longer necessary. EA’s statement “You are the only tool you need.” is 100%, unequivocably RIGHT. Having said that, I now return to the idea of protection.
Some of the more narly, aggressive Nonphysical entities will push you, frighten you, test your metal or otherwise bully you. If you are not solid -Grounded- in your Surety, your Utter Conviction YOU ARE SAFE and you are in charge of all that pertains to you … well, if nothing else they can sure do a number on your Esteem in the arena of Magick, chip away at your confidence & implant Doubts. You just simply don’t need that, so don’t put yourself in the position where they can challenge you, provoke you… I think you get the picture. Nice Circle; Pretty Circle. Its your temporary friend
And YES, by all means, Full Speed Ahead & ALL LUCK TO YOU! Z
