Though I have not practiced my hand at summoning spirits or anything of that nature, I have had an ongoing relationship with magick and occultism. I just never thought of the danger of being attacked by these evil forces before. Is there a real threat out there that I should be aware of? oh: one more thing - in the interview this guy Peter Lavenda kept saying that you need a certain level of initiation to be able to protect yourself.. I just don't get it. To be properly initiated wouldnt someone need to join an school of the mysteries?
But as always, I advised against any kind of summoning without understanding exactly what you are doing.

I would suggest a book called Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham. Even if you are not Wiccan, you may be able to adapt some of its exercises to your own beliefs. It also has a good self-initiation ritual.
