When seeing the unseen world, sick angels can become visible too and they can do some harm. Father Ilarion Argatu tells that sick angel materialized and palmed his face and that he prayed for the protection of the people around him as not to be affected by the sick angel. Praying for the protection of the family members, including grandsons can be very important as well as praying for the protection of the goods.
To allocate an important time to the prayer can have an impact on life and can be sustainable on some occupations
however not in other. The decision to go on this way , as well as the decision of entering a monastery should probably not be taken based on an impulse. The best way can be seen immediately by somebody on a high level of prayer or by passing of several years on going on the way.
Practical teachings are also on another much older book named [http://orthodoxwiki.org/The_Way_of_a_Pilgrim The Way of a Pilgrim] and this book recommends saying "Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, have mercy on me !" many times.
