A to Z Blogging Challenge word of the day - Odic Shield

Throughout the month each word I’ve picked out has taught me something or explained more on a subject I’d only heard of today. Today’s word is no different. I’d heard of such practice in other areas of research for some of my story ideas, but never knew what word related to it. Today I found out when I read over the definition of Odic Shield.

Odic Shield, is a magical theory and practice of etheric energy around the outer edge of the a human’s aura. It’s to protect the user from hostile magic or spirits who wish to assault them.

I’ve always heard of aura’s and a person’s energy field being used as a type of protection, but never knew in what ways or from what. Today’s word told one way.

Hope all enjoyed today’s post and comes back tomorrow to find out what “P” words I chose.

Remember all my information for the daily chosen words come from:
The New Encyclopedia of the Occult by John Michael Greer.
This particular word can be found on page 340

Have a great day and remember:
 Let Imagination Soar
Write and Read With Creativity
