6.4.3       Humans are exploitable to Spirit invasion when they are exploiting one another sexually or when they abuse drugs or alcohol, and the normal boundaries of control are removed.

6.4.4       Selfish motivations in the name of the spiritual (meditation, spirit contact) can open a person to be affected by discordant spirits.

6.4.5       Always use a Circle of Protection when engaging in spiritual exercises and technique.

6.4.6       When contacting a spirit helper, remember that the realm of lower, chaotic energies is closer to our own than those realms that are most harmonious.

6.4.7       Prepare for contact with helpers by filling yourself with unconditional love.

6.4.8       A lower spirit, masquerading as a higher one, will give you feelings of doubt and unease.  LISTEN.  If this happens, utter prayers and blessings of love at once.

6.4.9       SO, in order to not have contact with low-self entities, practice equal and unconditional love for all creatures / beings.  Keep your purpose on the highest level of vibration.

6.4.10  Understand that evil and negativity is an imbalance, a chaotic, ignorant, mindless energy or vibration.  It is a destructive energy, the opposite of growth and productivity.

6.4.11  Never forget that all that exists vibrates at its own particular frequency, at its own energy level.
