Target’s protections

Is it always necessary to break down a target’s protections before you for instance curse them? I have read here that we all have natural protection, so does sending a spirit like Vine to destroy it, speed up baneful work?
New to cursing, so I need advice. Thanks


I recommend it. You never really know who or what is protecting your targets and you don’t want to deal with the backlash later. Even if divination shows nothing I still focus on destroying protection first. Also divination can help with identifying your targets protection
