Targets are never told why Voices Demons yell at them continuously while they try to listen to music, or when they are walking along a busy roadside; but, they do know that the yelling abruptly stops the second the volume is lowered.
This has consistently been the case since 2006, when the Voices Demons now attacking me first made their life-long presence known to me directly; but, until the Voices Demons started physical assaults by magic, I could not ascertain the reason.
Subsequent to their use of magic, however, I have observed (and reasonably concluded) that a high sound volume limits the effectiveness of their magic, and, in most cases, blocks it altogether. It appears also that the noise must be more than just ambient; it must be engaging or distracting to the target in order to shield them from magical attacks by Voices Demons.
Such sources of high sound volume include stereos, TVs, and headphones, over which the target has control; and, they also elevate the stress to which they subject their targets when in high-volume areas, such as roadsides, restaurants or clubs (over which the target has no control) in order to condition the target to subconsciously avoid such places.
Shadow magic amplified by target's awareness and attention
A past observation of the way shadow magic works, and, in particular, the amplified effect a targets' cognizance of the fact that they are being targeted has on such magic, may shed light on why the Voices Demons require full attention, and are otherwise adverse to noise distraction (or any other kind of distraction, for that matter), especially pervasive and insistent ones, such as music.
In MAGIC | Why some demons freeze when you see them, I wrote:
The target's awareness of and focus on the caster [of shadow magic] enhances the results greatly.iPods afford greatest protection against Voices Demons' subliminally suggestive, hypnotic speech, magic
Even those who are not plagued by Voices Demons should listen to music as frequently as possible, as, like dreamweaver demons, Voices Demons can project telepathically, subliminally (i.e., they can influence you without your awareness).
It is this fact that explains why the left earbud on my iPod headphones used to always go out years before I could hear the Voices Demons. I must have replaced them over 20 times, and, each time, it was always the left earbud that died.
That, too, has an interesting story. The Voices Demons have long threatened—and have already taken steps—to reduce my hearing, and, in particular, in my left ear. It appears that years before I was even aware of these demons, they had already planned on the causing specific physical injuries, based on their choice of earbud to damage, and the (same) choice of ear to deafen.
NOTE | Currently, the Voices Demons are saying my failure to listen to them, work on things I like, eat food, remember happy times, etc., are the reason why they are slowly, but surely, causing a wide range of disabilities, such as the deafness mentioned here; however, it is clear now that there is no cause-consequence aspect to their abuse. Rather, it was planned long before any dialog was established between us.Targets who choose to defend themselves against Voices Demons' attacks should be prepared to fight to keep them in working order (and to keep them, in general). For all six of the years we have been in direct contact—and for three years prior to that—every iPod I have owned has been a major source of contention between us.
Evidence of at least two of our battles over the iPod have been captured on video.
In a clip from a video made late last night, sucker demons try to prevent me from putting one of my earbuds in my ear, and, at one point, spin it in my hand like a propeller:
In Angry Earbuds, sucker demons spring my earbuds off of the top of my microwave and onto the floor, doing so to discourage the use of my iPod to "ignore my voices" [see also VIDEO TIMELINE | Angry Sucker Demons Manipulate Power Cords]:
A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.
You do not have to say everything right now. Slow down! There is a time to hold back speech to yourself – there is a time to talk and tell all. Wise men know what to do before speaking and when to speak, but fools spill everything without preparation or thought.
Fools talk a lot. They cannot keep their mouths shut. Any little thought, no matter how frivolous, no matter how unstudied, no matter how inappropriate, has to come rushing out. But a wise man speaks carefully. He does not speak hastily, or without study, or offer opinions as truth. He rules his mouth to choose wise words and wait for the right timing.
A talker is a fool. If he talks arrogantly, hastily, or loudly, he has confirmed his folly even more. A fool loves the sound of his own voice, and he thinks others should love it also. He thinks he has wisdom to share, and he thinks others are blessed to hear him. So he gets angry when he is eventually isolated due to his ignorant and obnoxious speech.
Solomon said there is a time for everything: “A time to keep silence, and a time to speak” (Eccl 3:7). But knowing the right time requires discretion and prudence, two branches of wisdom the fool has never considered. As long as he has air to breathe (and a full belly helps), he will vent his pea-sized brain through his lips (Pr 30:22; Eccl 10:12-14).
If a fool could keep his mouth shut, he might be thought wise (Pr 17:27-28). But he cannot do it, for he has never held back words in his life: he has no will nor power to do so. He must pour out foolish ideas in the hope of satisfying his agitated conceit, but it will never happen; when he runs out of things to say, he keeps talking anyway (Pr 15:2).
There is nothing virtuous about being “outspoken.” It is merely another word for a fool! It would be much better to keep those words in and let them dissolve in the bile of your liver and go into the draught. It would be much better to ask the Lord to set a watch before your mouth and to keep the door of your lips (Ps 141:3). Do not speak out!
Many things – idle words, filthiness, foolish talking, jesting, backbiting, talebearing, and slander – should not be spoken (Pr 10:18; 11:13; 25:23; Matt 12:36; Eph 5:3-5). And many words raise the probability of sin (Pr 10:19; Eccl 5:3). How much damage and pain could have been avoided by restraining your words (Pr 12:18)? Therefore, the fewer, and more carefully chosen, and more slowly spoken, are your words, the better (Jas 1:19)!
A fool’s wrath is quickly known, for he cannot keep his angry words in (Pr 12:16). A fool pours out unstudied nonsense, and worse yet, his personal opinions; but a righteous man studies before answering anything (Pr 12:23; 13:16; 15:28). A fool shows his folly and shame by answering a matter even before hearing it fully presented (Pr 18:13). He cannot rule his spirit, and thus proves himself a failure and loser among men (Pr 16:32; 25:28).
Wise men restrain their speech (Pr 17:27-28). They study before answering (Pr 15:28). They are slow to speak (Jas 1:19). They choose their words carefully and wait for the right time to say them (Pr 15:23; 24:26; 25:11). Discretion and prudence are the guardians of wisdom – they restrain words and actions until you grasp a situation clearly and can wisely choose a godly response (Pr 12:23; 13:16; 14:8; 16:21; 19:11; 22:3).
Wise men keep words in “till afterwards”! After what? After they let passion dissipate and can speak prudently (Pr 19:11; Jas 1:19). After they apply Scripture to the situation and find the godly, charitable response (Ps 119:11; I Cor 13:4-7). After they have studied for an answer with the certain words of truth (Pr 15:28; 22:17-21). After they have sanctified the Lord God in their hearts (I Pet 3:15). After they have heard a matter in its entirety, and someone has sincerely asked for their response (Pr 18:13; 25:6-7).
Samson uttered all his heart, and it cost him greatly; he could not resist the provocation of Delilah to open up and spill the beans (Judges 16:17). Yet Abigail, a beautiful woman of good understanding, waited for the right time to give her husband some bad news (I Sam 25:36). The Lord told Samuel to answer Saul only part of his mind (I Sam 16:1-3); and when in court, Paul declared only part of his relationship to the Pharisees (Acts 23:6).
Christians, to be wise and avoid folly, are to be circumspect in their conduct – inspecting all the circumstances in every direction (Eph 5:15). Their words are to be predominantly gracious, with only a seasoning of salt; and the purpose is always to be edifying (Eph 4:29; Col 4:6). Can you keep from uttering all your mind today? Can you wait until you have the right words and the right opportunity to say them? Help, O Lord.
