My problem with most spiritual things is that I'm more or less blind to them, unless they actually intend harm or threat.
In those times, I find that I experience a sort of mental shift and am not quite sure what I am doing. As time has gone on I have become more cognizant of what has happened during these mental shifts, and even have been able to apply myself in a conscious action, such as the event that transpired and I am discussing in the "best defense is a good offense" thread.
I remember the first time I acted aggressively, there was an entity which started hanging around my home. At the time I was vaguely aware of it. It seemed to be just on the edge of perception and steadily grow hostile or aggressive (as much as a spirit can be anyway). I remember being home alone, walking out from my living room and turning down the hallway, perceiving that it was blocking my path and seemed to not wish to move. I do not entirely know what I did or how I did it, however I raised my right hand, felt a motion of energy and from the best I can tell, tore the entity into nothingness.
In the spot where the entity was is seemingly an astral void, no color or activity, when either Chai or I have noticed entities in the house, wherever they travel they avoid that spot. That was the experience that prompted me a long while back to start up the discussion of "soul death" or other forms of total and complete obliteration, as I theorize that is what I did, or quite possibly more accurately what Terro did.
The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.
