I have never known
the use of the Manteum to cause mental or physical harm
to anyone, but anyone who has spent time searching for
esoteric experiences will know that it makes sense to
take sensible precautions when dealing with such matters.
If you are undergoing
psychiatric treatment or have less than a full grip on
reality, the manteum is currently not for you.
Wait until you are mentally strong enough to make the
journey into this particular unknown. You need to be
of sound mind and body to be sure of dealing with anything
that might come along. No weak hearts please!
Do ensure that you will
not be disturbed during your sessions. Each experience
should be a good one if you allow it to develop and
flow naturally, without worrying about who is about
to disrupt a crucial moment.
Try to resist the temptation
to use the manteum for helping the bereaved come to
terms with their loss, until you are fully conversant
and comfortable with the manteum experience and are
able to deal confidently with whatever may occur
during a session. The bereaved have a right to
know that you are capable of dealing with any matters
which arise, and there is no substitute for experience.
If you are thinking of using the manteum for this
(grief therapy), you should consider getting some basic training
in the subject beforehand. Remember you would be dealing
with people who are often desperate for another few
minutes with their lost loved one, so they should
be treated with care, compassion and respect.
If you want to
allow other interested people to try it out of curiosity,
that's fine. It is perfectly ok to sit outside whilst
your visitor is inside, and it will comfort him or her
to know that someone is at hand.
Do remember to
protect yourself before every session. Use white light,
prayers, words, visualisation, whatever makes you feel
secure, but remember to do it - this is important.
Alcohol and drugs do
not mix with the manteum. Trust me. You need to be fully
in control of your faculties, to avoid negative energies
influencing your experience.
