I’ve seen the word “binding” used in two different ways recently. And it’s worth sorting out.
The first is, “Let’s bind this person so they stop stalking my friend.” This is a form of manifesting: You’re trying to cause certain events to (not) happen, and to cause a person to choose not to do something they’re physically capable of doing.
The second way is, “Let’s bind this person so they can’t do magick anymore.” This is about actually preventing them from doing something, usually by disconnecting them from their ethereal software and damaging their mental muscles so they can no longer do magick.
Why does this matter? Well, if all you want to do is send instructions to ethereal software and let the software sort it out, I suppose it doesn’t. But if you want to do more, it matters in three ways:
- If you use multiple different pieces of ethereal software, one might be better for manifesting, and the other might be better for fighting. Choose your software based on which binding you’re doing.
- If you’re trying to develop techniques that don’t use ethereal software, (so you can understand how they work and build better techniques), you’ll want to practice each step of the technique before trying the whole thing. Which means you need to have some idea of how the technique operates, which means you need to know whether you’re talking about manifesting or about damaging connections and structures directly.
- And third, if you’re trying to un-bind someone, it’s helpful to know if you’re dealing with manifesting (in which case you want to do your own manifesting), or if you’re dealing with damage to their mental muscles (in which case you need to rebuild those structures.) I’ve dealt with both, by the way, and the solutions are quite different.
