Working in a metaphysical shop, one hears all manner of odd stories and interesting questions. Occasionally, a customer who appears to be solidly in the “muggle” world walks in the door and begins to cautiously peek around at the merchandise. Clean, well-maintained, wearing a business suit or a jogging outfit, he/she will usually wait until no one else is in the store and then timidly approach the front counter. Leaning over, almost in a whisper, this person will say, “I know this might sound a little weird, but I was wondering if you could recommend anything for spiritual or psychic protection.” From this point forward, whatever else I may recommend to these people, I will definitely tell them to pick up a copy of Spiritual Cleansing: A Handbook of Psychic Self-Protection by Draja Mickaharic.
