Publisher's Summary

After finding herself the subject of a powerful psychic attack in the 1930s, famed British occultist Dion Fortune wrote this detailed instruction manual on protecting oneself from paranormal attack. This classic psychic self-defense guide explains how to understand the signs of a psychic attack, vampirism, hauntings, and methods of defense.

Everything you need to know about the methods, motives, and physical aspects of a psychic attack and how to overcome it is here, along with a look at the role psychic elements play in mental illness and how to recognize them.

This is one of the best guides to detection and defense against psychic attack from one of the leading occult writers of the 20th century.

This is the one

I think this version might have been put out in response to people not wanting an edited version and the publisher delivered.

Even though her work is criticized for culturally outdated content, the content that IS still relevant far outweighs the outmoded opinions. The outdated worldviews are jaw-dropping, but having the entire text available gives important context (thanks to the publisher for including everything). If a reader is a student of the occult, then seeing past these things should be magic circle 101.

In some other review (for the print edition, I think) someone said it was like sitting with their stuffy, but interesting aunt. We should remember however, that Fortune was groundbreaking at the time as a woman, an author, and an outspoken representative and critic of the occult world.

The reader is excellent, seeming to embody the author with her beautiful elocution. I'd love to listen to her read everything by Fortune — and really, anything else for that matter.

Don't read this

Not accurate and full of energy that actually attacks yours if you're gifted or have beliefs that step outside of this book.

A Classic Occult Text

Marred slightly by over enunciation and unbelievably slow reading speed on the part of the narrator, the book itself remains a classic.

Though dated and tinged by Dion's flights of fancy, the discerning occult practitioner will find useful advice from one of the last century's foremost practitioners!

Good account of Dion Fortune’s experiences, but it’s not a “manual” on self defence

Go elsewhere if you’re looking to buy an instruction booklet on psychic self- defence. The content and narration are good, but the content is more about Dion’s experiences. There’s not a lot about how to defend yourself against psychic attacks

below expectations

Skip to the last 15mins, it's the only useful part. Wish it had been deeper and more detailed.
