Reachelle listens to the nickname "Peanut"
The last time the family saw Peanut, she was 3. This year Reachelle will be 6. No words can describe how the family still aches for their Peanut to be brought home. Peanut's family asks that if there is anyone who might think they saw her, know they saw her or anything, to please, come forward. Contact the Minot Police Department at (701)340-0998. Any and all help is greatly appreciated to help bring Peanut home.

The corrupt ache of insanity
This world is filled with empty souls
Who thought the cure was rock n roll
Time has come and time has fled
Can you stop that ache inside your head
You cannot hide behind a myth
Believing the lies won't justify this
Preparation, connective clarity
You know where you're supposed to be
Walk that line now, balanced on a thread
Open your own mind, get out of my head
I wonder, can you see
This world won't follow willingly
The clock is ticking, time is wasting away
Are you ready, your time is up today.
MoonGoddessMagick Life isnt a matter of ...http://firstname.lastname@example.org:fubar.com,2010:BlogAtom-164894.6837612008-01-21T01:37:05-08:002008-01-21T01:37:05-08:00Psychic ProtectionOriginally posted at <a href="http://www.wicca.com/celtic/ramble/psychic.htm">wicca.com</a>
This is a massive topic and I apologize for the length of this rambling. It isn't something that can be covered briefly however and I'm sure this discussion will still leave many questions.
Occasionally, either through a journey in the astral or contact with people in the physical realm, it is necessary to protect or cleanse yourself Psychically.
We've all known people who always seem to have a major crisis brewing in their lives right? What happens, is that some never have learned how to maintain their own energy or draw upon natural energies to keep themselves whole and in good condition spiritually as they should.
These people continually seek out others that will allow themselves to be attached to. They use a ploy of feel sorry for me, or come to me and I will give you access to the powers of the universe or any number of other pick-up lines that can be very convincing or tug at your heart strings. Essentially, these people, while we can and do have sympathy and concern for them are psychic vampires and we need to protect ourselves.
Have you ever spent time talking with someone and afterwards felt drained and tired. Guess what? You've just been tapped. In the magickal community, there are those who become very proficient at this skill and can attach themselves to you over great distances and maintain that attachment. The actual mechanics of it can be quite complicated to describe, so for now, just accept that it can and does happen. The same thing can happen on journey's into the astral too. If you are not focused and allow yourself to aimlessly wander in the lower levels negative entities inhabit, they can and will attach themselves to your energy centers and cause problems.
Either way, the result is that you increasingly begin to feel tired and all drug out. Your energy levels drop substantially and chaos can and will begin to occur in your life as well as the potential for growing health problems.
So how do we recognize and protect ourselves from this? Actually it's pretty easy. First off, you need to realize that your aura and your energy are yours. No one or nothing has a right to them unless YOU give them permission to attach themselves or you open your energy centers freely.
If they attempt to attach without your permission, it IS a form of Psychic Rape and needs to be resisted strongly and without hesitation. In the astral, you simply will them away or yourself into a higher level away from these low-level entities. It works much the same way as trying to put to equal ends of magnets together. It can't be done. If you truly want them to go away, they will.
Low-level entities in the astral will always try to attach themselves to you below the throat chakra, so this is a pretty good rule of thumb for what you may be dealing with. Higher level beings will ALWAYS offer a joining of aura and energy above the throat level. If one appears and asks or attempts to connect below the throat chakra, simply will it away or move to a higher level yourself, they cannot follow you there. The exception to this, is that you've encountered another human traveling in the astral looking for someone to tap into. Again, your energy is your energy and no one has the right to trespass if you don't want them to. Just say NO! and will them or yourself away. The astral is a magickal place and you can make anything happen there that you will to happen with skill and practice.
The key to avoiding low-level entities in the astral, is to trust your instinct and use common sense. If a contact makes you feel uncomfortable, move away and will yourself somewhere else. The purpose for astral travel is to contact guides or spiritual beings to learn and grow.
In the physical world, you can recognize psychic vampires although it is a little more difficult. People can be very clever at disguising it or they may not even realize that they are doing it. All they know is they feel bad and talking to you or spending time with you makes them feel better, so they crave being around you. You can still spend time with these people and care for their well being, just protect yourself. You can also choose to let them have a little of your energy to let them feel better, and then close off the flow. Ultimately however, it is best to not let anyone become dependent on YOUR energy so that they can feel good. It is much better to show them how to raise their own energy or draw it from mother earth and nature as we are supposed to do.
One of the simplest ways to prevent someone from tapping into your energy is to sit with your legs crossed at the ankles and then do the same with your arms or wrists or by holding your thumbs and index fingers of each hand together. This can be done very inconspicuously although you might get comments that you feel suddenly distant. What this does, is it closes your energy loop and keeps your aura and personal energy recirculating within yourself.
Contact between people should be an exchange of positive energy that makes both of you feel good about being around one another, it is a sharing of spirit and soul that benefits and energizes both of you, not just one. I bet quite a few of you are going Hmmmm, right about now... We've all experienced relationships like that and it can be difficult to bring them to closure especially if our hearts are involved.
In the case of an intentional psychic attack, it can be much more difficult to detect and deal with. It can happen through many avenues and if you feel or know that someone is trying to attach themselves to you. Break all contact immediately. These people, if allowed, will attach themselves to you astrally and completely drain you. They have no regard or concern about your health and well being whatsoever. They are Psychic Rapists and could care less about you and should be treated accordingly.
Now I'm going to depart a little from the usual Wicca "White Light" everything is coming up roses philosophy here. I am a Witch and have no qualms about zapping a psychic attacker when the need arises. Actually I just kind of reverse the energy their sending back to them which makes them kick their butt in a manner of speaking. Ultimately I'm just helping them zap themselves, so my karmic slate stays clean. Sly smile...
Ok, on to the meat and potatoes.
Strong visualization skills play a helpful role in this but they aren't absolutely necessary.
If you suspect someone is intentionally attacking you psychically, break all contact with them immediately and do not have any more to do with them.
FOR THE BEGINNER:
If possible, get out into nature and at a minimum, take off your shoes making as much physical contact with the earth as you can. Take deep breaths and relax. Feel the warmth and energy of the Goddess and earth flowing upward into your body, focusing your thoughts on letting it fill and refresh you completely. You are trying to enter a meditative state. Call upon the love and protection of the Goddess to fill and cleanse you. Feel it wash over and through every molecule of your being. Become one with nature and the earth. You can do it... Smile...
The best that you can, visualize all negativity flowing upward and out of your body through the top of your head as the warmth and love from your connection with the earth replaces it. As this warm glow fills you, see and feel yourself being surrounded by a swirling white light of protection, positive energy and well being.
Will the negative influences away from you. You will feel yourself becoming more relaxed and cleansed as the negativity flows away. You will also intuitively know when to return to the physical realms of consciousness. When you do, give thanks to the Mother spending some time to enjoy the connection you feel and let the beauty of nature surround, fill and balance you.
FOR THE INTERMEDIATE OR ADVANCED:
Although I prefer doing this out in nature, it isn't necessary. Since I live out in the boonies, it's easy for me to go to one of my working areas and perform this cleansing and balancing skyclad. Your circumstances and environment will dictate.
If you are familiar with self cleansing or know someone who has developed these skills, either check your own aura or have them do it for you. Enter a deep meditative state and look for fluctuations, ripples or dark spots in your aura. You are also looking for thin auric threads attached to one of your chakras below the throat level indicating you have psychic lice.
Call upon the Goddess, your astral guides or animal totems to help cleanse your spirit replacing the negativity by feeling and seeing the same positive energy flow into you as described above. Fill and surround yourself with the swirling white light of protection, love and harmony as you visually sever the thread or threads breaking the connection. As the threads are severed, visualize a strong beam of white light pushing them away from you. If you are working with someone in this, they are softly talking to you, helping you visualize this as it happens. When done, spend some time in quiet reflective meditation and figure out how you allowed this to happen. You should have known better...
This topic is actually quite detailed and could lead off into numerous directions and good discussions. Time restricts this however, and I hope what's presented here is of value and help. Please exercise caution and common sense in your contacts in both the physical and astral realms my friends.

Myths, folklore and fairy tales are valuable sources of information about the human spirit and psyche. These stories, passed from generation to generation, serve as literal containers for crucial lessons of mankind. One classic, mythical character is the "vampire." Want to guess what the mythical vampire represents in our lives today?
While blood-thirsty vampires don't roam our streets at night, you might be surprised to learn that "psychic vampires" do! You probably don't think you know what a "psychic vampire" is, but you've probably encountered at least one of them each and every day! Unfortunately, they can't be recognized by their physical appearance. They don't grow fangs or develop hairy bodies. However, they can be easily identified by their direct impact on other people. Psychic vampires are people who cause others to feel totally, emotionally drained after interacting with them.They seem to sap the psychic and physical energy right out of the person they're talking with. Interactions with a psychic vampire leave one feeling exhausted. True to the story of the mythical creature, a desire to escape is the most common reaction when someone has encountered a psychic vampire.
Understand, psychic vampires are typically not mean, cruel people. Oftentimes, they are totally unaware of their impact on others. Initially, they are quite charming and attractive. They draw others in with their cunning and guile. Like vampires displayed on Hollywood's silver screen, psychic vampires avoid looking at themselves in the mirror. This avoidance of mirrors signifies a psychological tendency to avoid the self. The psychic vampire avoids, at all costs, self-examination. As you know, vampires literally live in the dark. Similarly, psychic vampires refuse to become enlightened by the light of knowledge. They lurk in darkness, under cover and unaware of how they negatively influence and drain other peoples' emotional energy.
Having avoided self-reflection, these individuals naturally deny responsibility for how they affect others and how they attempt to live off the energy of others. For instance, a typical interaction with a psychic vampire might appear like this:
The PV usually begins a conversation with a complaint of some sort. If the person they're talking with chooses to respond with a solution, optimistic comment or some other positive response, the PV will literally live off that person's positive energy. Rather than do this for him/herself, the PV relies on other people to provide him/her with this type of energy. As the word "vampire" conveys, the PV saps the energy of others, which is why the other person ends up feeling emotionally drained.
Modern day language and culture have coined the term "co-dependent" to describe the individual whose life revolves around the life of another. Rather than develop a true sense of "self," the co-dependent attempts to define him/herself through another person --- usually the one s/he is in love with. There are few or no psychological boundaries between the co-dependent and the significant other. "Co-dependent" is representative of the mythic psychic vampire.
By describing the psychic vampire, I have attempted to bring new life to the worn out term co-dependent. Unfortunately, the word co-dependent has been so overly used, it has lost its impact. People are comfortable with the label "co-dependent." I see many people cozy up to the concept and almost pride themselves on being a classic co-dependent! The Bible, fairy tales such as Rumpelstiltskin, etc. remind us of the power of the "word." Perhaps, the negative connotation of "psychic vampire" will encourage all those co-dependents in the world to shed their attachment to living through and off others, and seek to reclaim a true sense of self.

Don't get sucked into their endless series of melodramas.
Limit your interactions with them as much as is humanly possible.
Always keep your cool and maintain your composure when dealing with them. (They will likely try to get you just as worked up and upset as they tend to get. After all, as we all know, "misery loves company;" so don't fall into their emotional traps.)
At the workplace, you are compelled to socialize with them, at least on a minimal basis, but if they try to get you to socialize with them outside of the workplace, do not accept any of their invitations.
Use a tone of voice that is not cold or cruel, but that does send the message that you intend to keep your emotional distance.
Once they see that they cannot easily engage you or rile you up, the emotional vampires in your midst will likely figure out that you have already "got their number"; and chances are that they will give up and stop targeting you for emotional harassment.

<strong>The Mental Rapist Enjoys Abusing Women:</strong>
He abuses then backs off. After he has abused to a certain point he will back off and take note of his accomplishments.
If he is not satisfied that he has reached his desired level of control, he will step up the degree of abuse, coming back and swinging harder.
He has to win, and it is very important to him that he is always right.
<strong>He is Shy and Timid:</strong>
In real life he is shy, especially where three or more people are gathered.
He prefers one-on-one encounters that he can control.
<strong>He Hates and Loves Women at the Same Time:</strong>
Endless Cycle of Love/Hate with his Mother
This person was probably abused by his mother and then coddled. (For example: She would slap him in a violent rage and then love, cry and apologize.)
He probably hated his mother and loved her at the same time. The relationship with his mother was a never-ending cycle of love and hate that he could not control or stop.
He transposes these feelings to other women. He tries to create the same type of environment with other women.
This time he IS in CONTROL. Therefore, in his mind, he is controlling his mother through other women, surrogates of his mother.
He may have a wife. If so, he is a model husband. He needs one relationship with a female that is solid and wholesome; that is why he looks elsewhere for women to abuse.
He was disillusioned by an early love, so, in his mind, all women are liars and whores.
He was very much in love with someone once who he thought to be pure. The other person did not feel the same for him, and turned out not to be quite the virgin he thought her to be.
In his mind, if this ideal woman whom he thought was pure above all else, turned out not to be, then surely all other women must be liars and whores too. His mind is fixed on that as pure 100% fact and can not be changed. His mother might have been the woman he loved and thought to be pure, and he may have found out that she had several affairs.
His biggest problem is simply that all women just won't admit that they are liars and whores.
When a woman does not submit to him and admit what he knows to be true (that she is a liar and a whore), he feels he is back in the unbreakable cycle of his mother again. This upsets him to the point of bursting forth with so much profanity.
<strong>Delusions of Superior Intellect</strong>
He considers himself to be mentally superior to all women.
He is sure he is smarter, because he knows all women are liars and whores, but he has to prove it by making them admit it.
This type of individual probably possesses an above-average I.Q.
He has engaged in this behavior many times and knows what avenues and shortcuts to take to reach his objective as soon as possible.
<strong>He is a Mental Combatant, not Physical</strong>
This type of person is not likely to use physical violence because he may not win.
He is a mental combatant because he has learned to fight very well at that level and can always win to some degree in his own mind.
There are a few conditions in which he could be violent. Under the right circumstances this person could rape or beat a woman physically because of his dominant personality and if he felt he had to in order to prove his point.
He would probably not actually stalk a woman physically, but for sure might mentally via the internet.
<strong>The Internet is his preferred hunting ground.</strong>
Remember, he is most likely very shy and timid in the real world and has low self esteem until he gets on the Internet. Then he is the MASTER of his domain.
If his victim lives in a different state, or very far away, she is probably safe from physical harm by him.
The mental rapist does not need to go to that extreme to prove his point. It's much easier to go on the Internet with lots of prey to pursue.
