Publisher Comments:

Author and expert on metaphysical subjects Francis Melville asserts that psychic attack, the practice of the dark arts, is more common than many of us would like to believe. Often taking the form of nightmares, illness, and accidents, it is practiced on unwary subjects by personal enemies who have turned bitter as a result of envy, hatred, resentment, or spite. He divides his latest book into two parts. Part One explains the basic principles behind all forms of destructive magic, and Part Two discusses ways in which readers can protect themselves against negative influences, whether deliberate or unconscious. Several destructive magic arts are described in detail, including Satanism, Black Lodges, Voudou, and Demonic Possession, among others. Recommended protections described by the author include specific physical exercises, the making of amulets and talismans, angelic invocation, recital of mantras and meditations, and exorcism. This fascinating study is printed in two colors and supplemented with more than 250 illustrations.

Not everybody believes in the power of love. Do unto to others as you would like done unto you is not followed by all those that we meet. Some people see you as the enemy before they know you. Francis Melville has chosen his subject wisely: his quest, this book, will arm us with that paticular knowledge that will protect us from the weakest to the strongest spiritual enemies that we can come in contact with everyday. This book is a gift, a warning to those that don't know. Your enemies understand your ignorance and use it against you. They do not wish for you to read Melville's accurate account of protective thoughts and practices. Knowledge is power. Your life is sacred. You should read this book.
