Psychic Self-Defense: The Classic Instruction Manual for ProtectingYourself Against Paranormal Attack

Psychic Self-Defense: The Classic Instruction Manual for ProtectingYourself Against Paranormal Attack. I really enjoyed this book,while it wasn't quite as filled with exercises to protect yourself as I was expecting and occasionally I didn't get what was being talked about( Could have done with a glossary to explain some terms to the novice occulist)and it was rather christian in places(I'm a witch so would have to adapt some. of the exercises),I found hearing about the authors experiences fascinating,and its very apparent that she was a highly intelligent lady with much skill in the psychic arts. One person found this helpful.

Psychic Self-DefenceA Study in Occult Pathology and Criminalityby Dion FortuneI don't remember why I originally purchased this book, several years ago, but I recently re-read it. It was just as good the second time around. It's an absolutely fascinating book - it's very readable and entertaining. For example, she describes PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome) quite accurately. This is pretty amazing for a book written in 1930; long.

This is an extremely detailed and comprehensive book about the various forms of "metaphysically-based attacks" (for lack of a better term) to which a person may find themselves prey. Using lots of anecdotal data, Fortune explains the origins and possible occult analogs for many folklore phenomenae such as ghosts, vampires, hauntings, and the like. Also of interest is a section on the various pitfalls of ritual or cermonial magick. The bulk of the book, however, deals with the subject of psychic attack by another person: how to recognize the signs, the safest way to handle it, and how to prevent it from reoccurting.
I disagree with the complaint that this book is not specific enough regarding actual techniques for psychic defense. Fortune outlines in detail the forces at work in any psychic attack in such a way that anyone with a reasonable grounding in the field can formulate a plan of defense (this information is augmented by caveats from Fortune regarding what *not* to do, as well). If a person is not savvy enough to synthesize the instructions clearly implicit in the book, then that is an indication that they are almost certainly better off not dabbling, and should seek help from an outside source.
The final section of the book includes specific rituals, which should be helpful to anyone who needs more concrete examples. The emphasis is on efficiency and effectiveness rather than theatrics.
This book is probably not going to be of interest to the novice. One should have a grounding in general occult principles (most notably, the Qabala, as Fortune refers to it frequently) in order to get the most out of it.
If it is being read for simple elucidation and entertainment rather than as a practical manual, however, anyone with an interest in the paranormal should enjoy it a great deal.

Ok, first of all if you are a wiccan/witch/neo-pagan, take it easy. Dion Fortune obviously had a different definition for you than you had for yourselves. She saw the term "witch" not as a neo-pagan religion, but as a synonym for practitioners of black magic. As for the people offended by use of racist and class terms, remembber this was written around seventy years ago in a class conscious society. Lastly, as for the people who found her writing to be difficult to read or understand, it is archaic, and filled with references that are no longer common. I also admit that she puts a definite Judeo-Christian spin on things. If you can't deal with any of these facts, then don't read this book. Instead read "Practical Guide to Psychic Self-Defense" by Denning and Phillips and "Monsters" by John Michael Greer, both titles by Lewelleyn. They have the same information, but in greater detail, and they lack the Judo-Christian slant.
If you want to read an excellent first hand account of psychic attack, and the development and mistakes of an occultist, then read Dion Fortune. She is great, the writing is wonderful and witty. She gives tons of information, and she was one of the first people to write on the topic. I recommend this book for those reasons. Plus the stories of her experiences in the beginning of the book are fascinating to say the least.

This book is a very helpful book when it came to extra senses that I was experiencing when it came to energies around me. I would suggest this book for anyone seeking answers about tapping into themselves to work on those senses as well. There is energies all around us,and knowing as much as possible to help us understand us and them is crucial!

I found the book well written, practical, and very informative and insightful. It provided clear step by step exercises on how to protect yourself. I learned so much with this one book - it gives enough background information to give a layperson knowledge about occult. The most interesting part was the psychological aspect or influences of occult and it's purpose. Not too different from what advertisers and media do today.

Fantastic book. 10 stars. some old types of thinking in this book but almost entirely relevant to today as well. This book is probably one of the best books one can find on the subject even today... Dion Fortune is amazing!
Sermak Light
Considered a classic, this book was one of the first to directly address the topic of defending oneself from magical, emotional, or other metaphysical "attack." The writing style is a product of its day, and therefor somewhat ponderous to sift through.
Leniga
Dion Fortune's "Psychic Self-Defense" is an interesting and sometimes useful material on psychic attacks but I don't put too much stock in some of her interpretations plus there was a little to no practical discussion for protection from the attacks. Indeed, there are occult influences scattered throughout this book, but still it was a worthy read, from my historical perspective, of its time. I found it to be a sober and informative examination of the phenomena, especially a section where she was talking about non-human or soulless individuals (as she could very well be describing a psychopath).

All in all, it's an "okay" book on the subject but a classic. If one would want to indulge more into this subject, I would recommend Unholy Hungers: Encountering the Psychic Vampire in Ourselves & Others for more modern study of certain "psychic attacks."
Arrived just as described, on time
