Smiles start diplomacy. Conflict resolution without blood shed. Gallons and gallons of too much blood shed and it wasn’t from passion. Was actually very cold. Indoctrinated passion…unnatural.
In dealing with daemons, most people will never have to. As far as advice goes, don’t worry about daemons. If on the off chance you do happen to get in trouble with one, handle it much like you would with a neighbour you accidentally angered. Or if you really just can’t handle it, then go ahead and act the fool enough that they decide to leave the loony alone. Wave a fetish at them or something.
Just like you would your neighbour. Except those fetishes are things like expensive cars and clothing which daemons don’t care about and often don’t even see. Otherwise, keep your emotional, spiritual and psychic health up, and you won’t have any real problem with spiritual issues in general.
Your psychic health would affect how they interact with you? Yes. Your psychic health is sort of your literal image or body. Daemons don’t see your flesh as much as they see your soul form. This is why they seem to be able to read minds. They don’t. They are looking at your spiritual body and reading your spiritual body language.
So if you look weak, how would they react? Depends on the daemon. Some develop paternal views toward humans, usually specific humans. Others are much like human criminals and see the opportunity to kick a puppy. They are not any more or less moral than humans in general.
Hence in the movies when they use your fear against you, they’re just reading your spiritual body? Yes. They slam the spiritual door on your blind nose. They don’t have to be able to generate physical force to do violence to your physical body. Psychic trauma shows up as physical wounds. That psychic pimp slap can bruise you, especially if you are not very tough mentally.
Note in passing on the power of symbols to affect daemons. That cross someone might be wearing doesn’t affect a daemon, but it affects the wearer. It triggers an instinctive psychic defensiveness, like tightening up before being slugged in the gut. That coupled with the fact that daemons mostly give love taps anyway, can get you to feeling pretty invulnerable. Just as you might give someone a push if they try to enter your house uninvited, daemons do the same. But they do cringe at the idea of offending the Jehovah’s witness, metaphorically speaking.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
