best defense is a good offense
So it's been a while since I've ventured over into this topic, however I had an odd theory/experience I wanted to relate or get some feedback on.

Given that a simple "white light" protection is an exercise by which one uses positive energy to form a protective barrier, and that many describe it as taking two possible manifestations, either that of a field of light that others cannot push into, or that of a solid barrier of positive energy that malevolent entities cannot cross.

I have always seen my white light as the latter, as a wall, I have practiced usually by making white light barriers on each wall, then the floor and ceiling. Recently however at my occupation there has been a new entity hanging around that doesn't seem to like me (most don't seem to for some reason of me and absorbing energy cause I'm apparently a jerk like that), one night as I was leaving, I heard a faint growling sound and perceived an aura on the other side of the lobby window as I was locking it up (I'm often the last person to leave).

I decided to test out a little application of this white light and formed a wall, which I then projected directly at it and past it as fast and hard as I could. I think that I managed to launch it through the entirety of the building.

After that I've been practicing this application and movement of the walls, based on the idea that in this sense, the best defense is a giant defensive wall used as a mobile offense... or possibly using a Wizard of Oz reference and dropping houses on people.

Anyone have any similar experience or related knowledge/input?

Not really. I have just decreed that my dwelling is off limits.

Re: best defense is a good offense
Our usual screens are more of a filter/mesh. Part of our routine when we play Warrior in the Kheprian ritual structure (neutralize the space's energy, hold the space, ground excess energy, bring back to neutral after) is to reprogram the outer shield and expand it to hold the generated energy inside. Still working on wicking away the right amount of excess energy and grounding it.

So we definitely have the ability to make a specialized wall, and I presume we could make a not so specialized one...just never shield bashed anything with it yet. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Re: best defense is a good offense
I have concluded the best defense is not to get in a position to need to defend to begin with, and to that end I have always been fond of barriers that hide or disguise. A shield of this sort could be as simple as as hiding the energy of a place and giving the feel of being exceptionally boring. Or you could go more advanced and make a sort of phasing/pocket dimension kind of effect (something I'm still working out.. I'm sure its possible though). Perhaps its just the kitsune love of illusions that makes me feel such though, I dunno. Hope that helps at any rate ^^

Re: best defense is a good offense
Well I guess I can't compete with actually hurling around the force of the Creator... I don't know, that's the basis of almost all magic in religious practice. The application of faith and use through prayer to attain the blessing or action of a higher being, in that specific case being the Creator itself. At first glance however that seems to be a bit of a tall tale (not that I really have a leg to stand on... but relatively speaking), pushing a barrier across an area and having the word or enforcement of the Creator at your beck and call. Unless of course I'm misinterpreting, which if one would claim to be an Angel and a servant of the Creator, than technically their own enforcement of something is by extension a force of the Creator and by stretch of terms the enforcement of the Creator.

I like the "yet" on the end of that tirade, Shaynin. It makes for an interesting concept, does it not?

As far as the best defense being not to get into a position where there is an assailant, I fully agree with that. The issue here is that I was in another area that an entity entered and felt territorial over, and me being the kind of jerk I am, saw fit to extradict it forcefully. Believe me I know an awful lot about defense based on deception or obscuring energy, I believe that Angels do this by default when incarnated in horrendously complex ways.

Re: best defense is a good offense
Well.. If you think about it sometimes entities have reason to be ticked off. I would get annoyed if someone burst into my house for example...and so do they. I really don't get the common feel about spirits at all... often they aren't doing anything and they get treated like they are out to eat incarnated souls or something... thus I usually go with the idea that I don't bother them if they are in the right, at the most i will restrain them until i can get whatever task needs to be done over with, then let them be.

Re: best defense is a good offense
My place of work is a gymnastics school, and thusly after a long night of kids bouncing around, music on, some kids having fun, kids in my class being worked to the bone... there is a lot of ambient energy around.

I tend to drain energy from around me, I am leaving, and the other entities come around because it is snack time on all that energy... I come back in because I forgot my keys and they get ticked. Wouldn't you in that situation?

It's not really that the gym is their house, I would equate this to an amusement park ride. They're waiting on line until it's their turn all day, I've been cutting the line and going through over and over and over again. Finally I leave and they get a turn... and then I go and walk back in.

Re: best defense is a good offense
I don't feel i have the authority of the creator at my beck and call. Seems to me that it works only in certain ways for specific reasons set by said creator. It's his agenda, not mine, if you will.
