By Rosemary Ellen Guiley

My work in the paranormal and metaphysical fields has always embraced both the light and dark sides of experiences and phenomena. It is easy for most people to accept the good and benevolent, and much harder to come to terms with the bad and malevolent. Some even deny the existence of the dark side, perhaps in subconscious hope that they will never encounter it, or, by ignoring it, it will cease to exist.

Many of the inquiries and requests for help that I receive from people concern troubling paranormal issues and problems. The media and religions sensationalize the dark side, and so objective information is hard to find. This collection of articles is an introduction to the shadowy underbelly of the occult, a resource for the casually curious and those involved in paranormal work. I have included some of my own experiences as well. Where appropriate, I have included helpful tips for avoiding and resolving paranormal problems, and increasing protection against paranormal influences.
