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 twentieth century.
