A TOPIC THAT FEW WOULD DARE TACKLE
on October 10, 2002
Your average modern-day person does not believe in the spirit world. If they do, the spirits are usually thought of as benevolent beings of light or as angels etc... The truth of the matter is, people of ancient times knew better. They knew that the spirit world was real and consisted of beings both malevolent and benevolent. This knowledge was widespread and cross-cultural. This knowledge led them to take specific measures to protect themselves from negative spirit beings. The lack of such knowledge in the modern person in no way protects against the onslaughts of negative beings and in fact makes the person of today easy prey. The views held by modern people with respect to the spirit world are anomalous when viewed in the context of Man's history. It is only arrogance that has caused us to view the knowledge of the ancients as superstitions and the product of 'magical thinking'.
Robert Bruce brings a modern slant to ancient knowledge. He convincingly describes how negative influences from the spirit world wreak havoc with our lives causing obsessive complusive disorders, violent behavior, depression and even death to name just a few problems. He outlines praactical nuts and bolts techniques to protect one's home, one's children and oneself from these influences just as our forefathers would have done.I highly recommend this book.
FYI- other books addressing this topic are- 1) 'The Path'- by Esmeralda Arana and 2) 'The Active Side of Infinity'- by Carlos Castaneda. Both of these books say that once negative influences are removed from one's life, one begins to develop 'paranormal' abilities such as clairvoyance and telepathy.
