While squatching, I don't recommend using iconographic candles with religious imagery on them, particularly depictions of Jesus Christ; the old Scandinavian wives' tale about trolls (sasquatches) avoiding displays of Christianity is actually true; likewise, if you would like sasquatches to leave you alone, and you are, more or less, a Christian, banish them as you would a ghost or a spirit by invoking the name "Jesus Christ," in addition to shining the brightest flashlight you possess in their general direction.
Even cell phone illumination is better than nothing, as is turning on electronic devices. Followers of other religions might well have the same luck by calling out the name of God in their religions (Jehovah, Allah, Elohim, etc.) in an attempt to banish unwanted sasquatch encroachment that comes "too close for comfort."
Use of Iconography, Prayers, and Invocations
Like djinn, sasquatches DO react to prayers and displays of faith, even when the speaker is not terribly religious. You may have heard the statement that there are no atheists in foxholes. Well, the same goes for supernatural activity that threatens one's wellbeing, such as stone throwing, infrasound blasting, and simply coming too near.
I have indeed repelling sasquatch activity that has made me uncomfortable by praying the Lord's Prayer, singing hymns, etc., especially when my heart was racing too fast and I felt faint due to infrasound blasting. And for those readers that are put off by the fact that sasquatches are repelled by the name of Jesus Christ, whether such readers are atheists or highly religious, my advice is the same: Experiment for yourselves. I am not trying to push my experiences on you. I am merely relating them for your benefit.
My opinions are largely based upon personal experience. I've gone bigfooting well over one hundred times in my life. I'm the kind of person who notices patterns of squatch behavior when they emerge. Every good squatcher would do well to do the same.
