In her book, psychic self-defense, Dion desribes various techniques to help an ordinary person or adept protect themselves from spiritual attacks. The ring of fire and the invocation of the four holy angels of the quarters has always been my favorite, and it is routine Golden Dawn practice.

I found her story very touching about when she was young and expereinced the horror of an obnoxious pig of a woman
breaking down her mental psyche. What validates this experience is that it didn't even involve a ritual or spell of any type;
it was just the sheer will of another being imposed upon her as an innocent girl. I can so relate to that tale.

I feel this is a helpful book of her expereinces with attack and how to deal with them. Interesting material and some effective techniques.

There are no books like the classics--no matter which genre you're reading.

Well worth the investment.

Amazing! Teaches how to protect yourself from people that use the occult to harm others, take advantage by using Black Magic. Also describes how certain people can drain your energy, make you unhealthy by conscious practice, on purpose and unconsciously without knowing it or controlled through another influence. Variety of different types of attack and ways to protect, defend yourself.

I worked for people similar to Dions boss. Read the book and decided to break free before more harm was done. The energy, aura strengthening and other techniques helped protect me. My boss actually backed off when she felt the energy one day when coming to my room to request something. She quickly walked away and I never found out what she wanted. I also like Dion's other books, including 'The Secrets of Dr. Taverner'. A classic! ; The Secrets of Dr. Taverner

I first became interested in Dion Fortune's books from the many references I noted while reading Nancy B. Watson's Practical Solitary Magic. I found Psychic Self Defense to be thorough. Ms. Fortune was very well educated and rounded in her actual experience. As a psychologist, an occultist and a psychic she was able to approach the subject from an experienced and solid basis. The writing may be a bit old fashioned to the contemporary reader but I felt charmed by her voice. Her authority on the subject matter rings true.

I have yet to read the whole book but this isn't just dealing with witchcraft. Every day we bump into people who are obsessive & greedy. They want to take everything from our energy to our money or psychically attack us without even knowing they're doing it. The manipulative girlfriend that you always end up arguing with over next to nothing. The old lady who always makes a fuss in your store. Your little brother tries to game you into something & the know-it-all at work who just won't shut up are all forms of psychic attack. Not everything is witchcraft. But the book is primarily concerned with that kind of psychic attack - involving spells and concentrated intention to hurt another human being and of course witchcraft rituals but it is very informative and very helpful.
If it doesn't save your life it will probably make it easier.

I wanted to get a book to better my understanding on this topic. This book happened to be the 'foundation' of the psychic science. It is NOT for a casual reader - it is better suited for people who are interested in a 'deeper' knowledge of the subject. This book scared me about the reality of all this.

The greatest value that I found in the volume was its historical perspective on the development of the "spiritualist" / "occultist" movement. The author's personal experiences are interesting not only as record of paranormal phenomena but also in their "catty" or "gossipy" nature - the spiritualist community was fairly small at that time, and it is all but certain that everyone knew who "Mr X" or "Miss Z" was, even though they weren't specifically named.

This little book is a good read for several reasons, although the reader is advised to remember that it documents the experiences of a particular person at a particular point in history and reflects that as much as it does any specific spiritual practice / tradition.

This is a great book to understand with what you probably know about psychic self defense wise, but that your knowledge had been probably just dumped into your lap in the first place. In this book, you will get the correct info about psychic self defense - explained the right way. This is not a book in which you will get protection spells from. Instead, the author took great care so to make sure you understand exactly what she is getting at about psychic defense: what it is, what is for, and how to go about defending yourself for that purpose. Those who would say this is a book for Christians, need to re-read this book over again, and properly this time. Rather, this is a book that leads you towards understanding how your own Divine-self (your Higher-self) is much more capable that most would give it credit for, or dare tell you about. Never what faith or spiritual belief mentioned in this book, because they are cited in this book as it exactly says it is...
