Imagine that you had grown up in a society that either did not know about bacteria or that denied the existence of bacteria. At the age of five, you drank water contaminated with the bacteria that cause Cholera and died. Would you feel this society had done what it was supposed to do for you?
Our modern societies do acknowledge the existence of invisible entities called bacteria that affect our physical bodies. But they do not acknowledge the existence of other invisible entities that affect our energy bodies, or rather the emotional, mental and identity levels of our minds.
And although these psychic entities are not (directly) deadly for the physical body, they can have devastating effects on our psyches. Such psychic entities are partly the cause of schizophrenia, addictions, depression and a host of other mental illnesses or maladies. They also seek to stop our growth in awareness.
This points to the need for us to learn psychic self-defense, so we can protect our minds from this hidden influence. This section will explain how learning to defend your mind can have a dramatic positive effect on your mental health and well-being. It can also speed up your growth in awareness.
