An update on the situation described in my previous blog post. The general sense of dread I've experienced has lessened. In fact, the last few days have seen me experience quite the opposite. I began to worry at how easily I found things amusing and was prone to laughter. With these two extremes of emotion in mind, I delved into the library for information. Based on certain texts related to clairvoyance and scrying, I believe I may have come under occult attack from a knowledgeable source. This attack took the form of first driving me into a state of dread while subtly implanting the suggestion of seeking affective shift to break the connection, like I described in "My Experiences With Astral Perception." Had I not been reading accounts of psychic assault and defense against it, I may have continued the winding road to madness. As it stands, I am currently in a much more level emotional state.
Regarding the situation with the murder, the police have yet to get back to me. I have a feeling they won't acknowledge my request, and I am currently weighing whether possible avenues of investigation are worth it. For now, no progress has been made.
As for the possible surveillance situation, I saw a car with its lights off parked in the middle of the street directly outside my window two days after posting the previous update. This was at 2:30 AM. I was able to make out someone at the driver's seat moving, but they appear to have seen me at that moment before driving off. Other than this incident, the last few days have been quiet, and I haven't observed any further signs of being watched. But then, I've also made a concerted effort to dampen my astral presence rather than explore.
Now that the library is back online, I will do some research and resume my meditations.
P.S. If there really is a cult or coven out there spying on me, could you just contact me directly? I'd much rather have a civil conversation than engage in this game of spy vs spy.
