Apr. 9th, 2006 @ 01:31 pm Sensing malicious entities
When sensing a spiritual entity, how would you/how do you determine if it's benign/friendly, or malicious?

If it's malicious, how would you deal with it?

Arris says:
Hmm...used to be simply be feeling...by that I mean how I feel when I sense it.

If malicious, I'll construct barriers around myself and leave it alone, while gathering energy and keeping track of it.

Saber says:
For me, it's more like gut instinct/feel.

As for malicious entities, shield and banish.

Catwingz says:
I can usually feel it, how it wants to interact with me, or I can ask it what its purpose is. If it's something that I'm not prepared for, or I feel is malicious, I'll use my crystal to transmit violet transformative light into it, dissolve it, and offer it back to the universe.

siabha_maellyn says:
Good and evil tend to be extremities, and are much rarer, I think, than most people believe... but something can be harmful without being evil.

Usually if something is outright malicious, and attacking you, that would be self evident, but sometimes things are a bit more subtle...I suppose you just have to go about it like you would any person you encounter...don't trust too much until you get to know them better. I just make a habit of making a sanctuary for myself, usually my sleeping area, so nothing can get in but what I allow.

If in event I needed to defend myself psychically, I will sometimes use a variety of crystals and/or herbs, and energy work either free standing or in conjunction with aforementioned tools... tends to be a case-by-case basis... what works for one won't always work for another.

eye_of_twilight says:
Ask it if it comes in perfect trust and perfect love. Even if it lies, you'll be able to 'feel' if it's telling the truth or not. If it's not vibrating in love and happiness (sounds mushy, but negative entities can't do this), just banish it by ignoring it.

Summary (by Sky):
- Try to use your own discretion in determining if an entity is malicious or not. While many can be subtle, the clear, outright malicious ones will exude the intention - if not the feel - of harm.

- Only take the entity on only if it's directly attacking/threatening you or someone you see. If not, run from it as fast and as far as you can. Don't overestimate your own abilities.

Jan. 30th, 2006 @ 09:33 am Pontianaks and fear
Refer to Pontianaks

Apparently, they/it just might be appearing again. And dammit, okay, this is dangerous. Suggestions to fighting this?

Also. A question: how can we ever lessen our fear of spirits and entities? It isn't easy, I know. But suggestions, maybe?

Saber says:
Fighting them? Er, Quranic verses? Keeping your house clean? Don't have banana trees near your house?

It's not easy to say "I am not afraid of spirits and entities". To say is to be a) very brave or b) very foolhardy. We can protect ourselves but we cannot shake off the fear.

Arris says:
It eats the soul of males...and their intestines sometimes...it attacks when they are alone...it's like it has a pocket dimension...but you probably will sense it long before it's near..its presense is very dark and empty. They cannot stand being around humans much. They cannot stand energy flows from humans or animals...and they fear most animals, because they are too insubstantial.

Use strong will and try to convince it to leave you alone..it's very human. DO NOT LEAVE WHERE YOU ARE!! Make it leave you...then get someone to get you away form where you are...you cannot like leave the room you are in alone..you'll get lost in it. It actually makes you lose yourself...then devour you..I know for sure you can make it leave you alone.

Conclusion(by Sky):
Pontianaks seem to be a purely Asian entity, without its presence having been felt in other parts of the world out of Asia (or maybe, even South-east Asia) yet. At least not from what I've heard.

They are mainly vengeful human spirits; all females. The most common allusion is that they are Malay entities, hence, the suggestion of reciting Quranic verses as a deterrent to their presence.

Their presence are strongest near/at banana trees, since it seems that those trees are where they reside in. However, NOT all banana trees contain pontianaks (I've had two banana trees planted in my backyard for more than ten years, and have never felt their presences).

Summary (by Sky):
Summary of points raised by Saber and Arris

1. Try Quranic verses as deterrent

2. Pontianaks attack when males/pregnant females are alone; never when they're in a group

3. They cannot stand the energy flow from living beings, and probably will not remain revealed for too long, even after they appear

4. Try to convince it to leave you alone: it was human, after all, and are as susceptible to human foibles as anyone is

5. (for Otherkin) For direct attack, try using your were-sides, and letting the energy flow out to deter it.

Date/Day: 17 December, 2005; Friday
Location: Singapore Botanic Gardens; beneath a huge tree

Saber and I had settled outselves underneath the shade of a huge tree, making ourselves comfortable amongst its roots. I'd seen a guardian there, cautious but not intrusive. We greeted the tree and offered some water. We warded the place, grounded, and released our negative emotions before attempting our journey.

Our specific intention was to find out what was causing the energy leakage/s from elsewhere into our world, as others (and myself) have experienced.

We asked our guardians over to watch over/accompany us. For me, B. came. Saber's guardian (let's call him Z) also came. As an act of trust, my own guardian stood with/behind Saber, and hers did likewise for me.

We'd originally thought that since this journey was to deal with energy leakages, we'd try journeying to the Lower World. Saber went first, making her/our intention clear. B. went with her, and I went after them, leaving Z. half-guarding our physical bodies, while seeing the same thing through his bond with Saber.

At first, we thought that we were in the Lower World. But no. We realized we'd entered somewhere else: quite possibly the world from where the entities are from. (I don't presume to say that it is that world, but there's a possiblity of that)

I didn't take notice of the sky, but Saber said it was a stark, clear blue. But what I/we both saw was a barren, desert-like landscape. She saw huge bones jutting out from the ground, and mountains looming in the distance.

While she was surveying upwards and outwards, for some strange reason, my attention was drawn to the ground, so I'd crouched to run my fingers through the sand/soil grains. The grains were thicker and coarser than the fine sand of a desert, though. I also got the impression of blood - that the ground had either been soaked with the blood of the dead or of the slaughtered; or that it was born from the blood of the dead/slaughtered.

Shortly after I noticed this, I started feeling the entities/beings there. They were not physical, not even in that world. And they felt very malicious. B. restrained Saber from pursuing them. But when they pushed too much, she called on phoenix for help, and those seemed to retreat a little.

Our attention was then drawn to one part of the horizon, where we both saw this blackness tinged with crimson. I had a strong feeling that it was coming towards us, like a storm cloud rolling in.

Shaken, Saber withdrew from that world first, leaving B. and me. (For my part, I say that yes, I was also shaken, but my fear has this habit of having a delayed reaction, so at that point, I was still "unafraid") I asked the tree if I cloud draw some energy from it for protection, but instead, I saw it appear in that world, in its fullness.

At that, the entities seemed to crowd around and advance more quickly upon us. Not wanting B. and the tree to risk anything, I made all of us leave.

I think that what we all saw was so...bad that Saber's guardian himself seemed shaken with worry; B. remained his usual stoic self, but I know him enough.

Decided to runecast then, with the intention of asking what exactly that world we saw was. What was more ominous was that up till then, the air had been perfectly still, so that it was very hot. But at the moment I asked the question and cast the runes, a strong wind blew, as if in dark warning.

Runes denoted by a * refer to face-down/reversed runes.

Wyrd instantly drew our attention. It was so close to the line it was almost touching it. I checked things out, and Wyrd represented the future, and is known also as the Rune of Fate. Saber got the strong feeling of protect your family, protect your clan from the runecast as well.

We also saw a skink - some type of lizard. Totemic connotation is to self-protect.

Mm...asking for thoughts/suggestions/experiences.
