I have recently had to deal with the issue of occult permissions. I am tempted to say that magickally, no one has any permissions to me whatsoever. However, does this mean that my occult order, namely Wicca, does not have permissions to do whatever a religion mihht do, like provide halps, etc?
 
The official statement I came up with is: Nobody has permissions to me whatsoever, except whatever permissions are necessary through my occult order, which is Wicca.

What do you all think?

Be Blessed!

Please define "occult permission?" I admit I am rather confused as to exactly what you are asking.

Basically people having "permission" to cast spells, affect you psychically, etc. I would use the term "magickal permission", but then that could perhaps be. Construed to mean you can't cast spells, but could somehow be able to affect me "in some other" way psychically. Of course some might argue that all psychic abilities are magick, but then is that the "true definition? You see how it gets thorny! :P

I don't know that something like this works well ... a lot of it depends on the intent of whomever you want to keep out and how skilled they are at manipulating energy.  Think of it like this - you can claim that no one can physically harm you, but if you were to antagonize the wrong person they can still punch you and break your nose if they are strong enough and/or a skilled boxer.

Energetic ties are impossible to completely cut and a person highly skilled in directing energy could (assuming their ethics allow them to harm another) get around most anything anyone can do to prevent it.

IMHO the best course is to stay centered, use appropriate shielding techniques, and deal with the individual oddities as needed.  Also, if you aren't behaving in a manner that pisses people off and aren't sending our "victim here" vibes, nothing else is needed. ;)

Think of some people as having very strong kundalini energy, if you piss off such a person they will direct that energy toward you sometimes without even meaning to, permission or not. Some of the greatest people of power I have run across were little old Pentecostal Church women from the hills, they no more thought of themselves as witches then my dog but what they prayed would happen for they had the energy. So don't break any hearts or treat people wrong and neither they nor the universe shall cause you much grief.
