Living With Legilimens - by Queenie Goldstein
In 1923, The American Society of Legilimens approved this self-help book for family members and significant others who are living with natural legilimens. Living With Legilimens provides an understanding of your beloved and gives you concise instructions on mastering the art Occlumency.
What is Occlumency?
Occlumency is the art of magically defending the mind against external penetration, sealing it against magical intrusion and influence – the defensive counter to Legilimency. A practitioner of Occlumency is referred to as an Occlumens. It is ancient, and has existed since medieval times. It can prevent a Legilimens from accessing one's thoughts and feelings, or influencing them. It can even be used to feed the wrong information to a Legilimens. A person who practises this art is known as an Occlumens.
In its most elementary form, Occlumency involves clearing the mind of thought and emotions in such a way that the Legilimens can’t find any emotional ties to thoughts or memories that the person doesn’t want to be seen. Thus, in order for both Occlumency and Legilimency to be better understood, it’s important to comprehend how our brains create memories.
