Build the Wall
I am sure that many people are aware of the importance of building a proper wall. Walls have been used for centuries to protect against adversaries or threats of various kinds. I am surprised that so many people still discuss the necessity of such protection! As a matter of fact, every magician, priest, or priestess, usually knows very well how to build a wall and the reason why. This is not something new, but the question often arises, and not just in politics.
I like to make a distinction between magic and theurgy. Many practitioners speak about the necessity of being protected before performing any kind of spiritual or magical practice. In Western traditions, such as Hebrew and the Christian Qabalah, this idea is emphasized. This blog is not the place to discuss specific ways to create this invisible wall at the beginning of a ritual. Everyone knows there are a few differences according to the tradition in which you are working.
