I’m very thankful to Belsebuub for not only providing a background into what these sinister entities are after, but also for providing information about various methods of protection against them such as the Circle of Protection and recitations that when chanted, banish evil entities.
I wanted to share here a couple of experiences that took place one night that gave me faith in the effectiveness of two of these techniques.
Verifying the Circle of Protection
In his book The Astral Codex, Belsebuub writes about a technique called the Circle of Protection to keep out negative entities while trying to project or fall asleep.
This first experience took place when I was a student living in a residence hall on campus.
In the middle of the night I awoke feeling myself in the sleep paralysis phase, nearly projecting. I then had a small worry: what if I forgot to do the Circle of Protection around myself tonight?
Surely I’ll be taunted by evil entities. I decided the best strategy would be to draw the circle again, just to be sure I was protected.
I sang the Bellilin recitation to dispel any negativity first, and found myself more relaxed and even closer to falling asleep.
After the recitation, I then prayed to my Divine Father for the Circle of Protection to be drawn around me.
As I was making this prayer, I also began to see through my eyelids.
Around my bed, as I prayed, I could see a magical sparkling, green “curtain” moving around me in a clockwise direction.
This curtain was made of light, and it kind of looked like aurora borealis. Embedded within the curtain were the most beautiful and majestic sparkles, like twinkling stars, of many different colours and sizes.
They each seemed to have a life of their own. I observed this protective barrier throughout the process of creating the Circle of Protection, by which time I was already out of my body sitting on my bed in my astral body.
Once I was fully out of my body and the circle had been drawn, I couldn’t see it in as much detail save perhaps a sparkle or two. But since I had made it out without any negative encounters, I decided to go on exploring the astral plane.
I leaped out my window and landed on the sidewalk leading to the cafeteria. This lead to my next experience.
A “Friendly” Negative Entity and Recitation of the Cosmic Father
After I had landed, I turned my head to the right and one of my friends/classmates, who lived a few doors down, was walking out of the cafeteria. He walked up to me nonchalantly with a big grin on his face and said, “hey.”
I had serious doubts that this was actually my friend.
I didn’t think he knew about astral travel…
I thought it might have been an entity trying to distract me, so I responded with a different sort of greeting… I performed the Recitation of the Cosmic Father, also written about by Belsebuub.
After completing the recitation, this being just walked away and vanished. I was expecting a more spectacular departure, but he was gone and I was then able to continue exploring, without distractions. I think that was an entity trying to distract.
Knowing the Techniques Work
Having seen that these techniques work firsthand has been extremely important for me in moving forward with my exploration of the astral plane, as I used to have many fears about what could/might happen to me when astral traveling.
By seeing that I can be protected and that it is possible to banish evil/deceptive presences, I have been able to move forward with astral explorations with confidence and enthusiasm.
