Product Description

Product Description

Is everything that goes on in your mind really you? Perhaps not, says Australian psychic researcher Robert Bruce. Drawing on more than two decades of firsthand research and experience, Bruce reports that our minds are subject to influences from many unseen spiritual sources. Some of these can influence how we think, feel, act, and even how our bodies function. They can make us unhappy, irritable, confused, sick, unstable, even crazy. This is why we need practical tools and countermeasures for psychic self-defense, all of which Bruce provides.

This is the ultimate guide to combating the influences of earthbound spirits, deranged ghosts, astral snakes and spiders, demonic spirits, and poltergeists. This is a highly anecdotal and comprehensive practical guide to the dark side of the psychic universe.


The existence of psychic parasites is apparently not new or unknown. The phenomenon has been called by many names since ancient times, including night terrors, haunting and possession, and the more common names of anger, irritability, depression and chronic fatigue syndrome. Using the techniques in this text, the reader can learn to identify, confront and get rid of unwelcome energy parasites that disrupt physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awareness is the Best Protection 20 Sep 2002
This book is first-class. Robert Bruce gives a straightforward and practical guide to the harmful spirit entities that harass human-beings and how to counteract them. This is a clearer and simpler book than his "Astral Dynamics". Everthing put forward is based on his personal experience over many years and the emphasis is on recognising what is happening and chosing the appropriate strategies of defence. All the psychic self-defense books I have read previously have fallen into either the sensationalist "the-devil-is-out-to get-us" category or the vague and woolly "all-you-have-to-do-is-raise-your-vibes" school of thought - neither of which is very helpful if scary things are happening to you! Robert Bruce's approach is to give not only food for thought with some extremely interesting and original ideas but, more importantly, a whole armoury of tools for positive action. This is a book for "doing" more than theorising. In addition to this, he is an amusing and colloquial writer and will leave you feeling cheerful rather than depressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Review 10 Sep 2009
By Dan
This is a very interesting book, with a good practical knowledge that the author most probably has by is experience in the real world.

The only two remarks that I have is that the author underestimates the power of the white light for protection, because the white light path is a path of devotion and believing, and it cannot work in a single time experience. And the children "innocence and purity". The children are more susceptible to attacks because they don't have their energy bodies developed, but they aren't innocent and pure, they are what they were before incarnation, as a child, we have all the problems in our being that we need to solve in our evolution.

I shall say that this is the right book for you if you need to learn methods to protect your self, others and places in a practical and easy way, things that are very important when dealing with this problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars A frightening necessity for all! 20 Sep 2006
Being a follower of Traditional Witchcraft I meditate very often. I have had dealings with negs on a few occassions but nothing too severe as one must always protect themselves when performing regression or deep meditation. However, my mother was being terribly tormented during the night and I could not help her because neither of us understood what was happening to her.

After buying this book I was able to explain what could be happening to her and explained that she must take control and act... However, even just her having the knowledge of knowing what it could be made a huge immediate difference and she has not had a problem with disturbed sleep or nightmares since!

Be warned - it is a scary read, but is necessary for everyone to know what is out there and how to deal with it. I feel it is especially important for those people who are starting or following a magickal path or practising meditation, astral travel or regression etc.

This is a book that is never stuffed away on my shelf, and is always at hand!

5.0 out of 5 stars A interesting and practical book. 3 Jun 2004
This book is separated into three sections first describing negative beings then describing the signs that they may be influencing your life and then finally providing countermeasures that are very effective in remedying this situation.
Just knowing what's out there, and how it operates makes you a much harder target and R.B. writes about this in a very informed fashion.
Most of the methods described require no magical training. It's mostly the case that knowledge and doing the right thing is enough. That said techniques are given that are powerful and will help you!
Many unseen influences are not bound by any kind of moral framework, so I was pleased to see extensive information provided about the protection of children.
I recommend this book most highly for every parent and anyone who has got as far as even thinking about it!

4.0 out of 5 stars The frightening reality 5 Aug 2004
By Nikki
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When beginning to read this book, the reader may initially feel that the author has somehow lost the plot. Soon enough though, the reader realises that what the author describes in great detail, are things you have experienced yourself. This book is written with the novice mystic in mind, and written in an easy to read language - no prior knowledge of negs required. The majority of preventative measures the author describes are easily done, and do not require mystical objects. It is a must for anyone delving into the psychic world - however be warned the truth can be frightening.
