I think it was upsetting to me because I felt you were assuming I'm clueless just because I'm a new Keeper and only 2 weeks into my journey.
It's not the first time I've been treated like this on the forum by experienced members.
I've noticed from reading some posts that some very experienced members have been attacked, but I haven't. I'm an unbound magnet, and there are many malicious unbounds around here where I live. However, my protection team is just as strong. Just because we're a very small Keep, it doesn't mean we're weak, or if I'm new, I might not know what I'm doing.
You have to realize that the races of my protection team were mentioned above are like hiring professional security guards. They're not like other races.
I suppose when I say "Archangel" you would think of one of the 7 holy Archangels, but it's not. An Archangel is a Warrior race of Angels. They're a non-social race just like a Fylgia or a Volkh. You can look up all you want, CH doesn't have their info. But they're the type that banished Lucifer. So if he said no, and all the spirits/entities in my Keep said no, I trusted them.
My Courtwind Angel is different. CH doesn't have her info either. She's a Fallen Angel living entity and her reason for falling is being overprotective. Lol. So she'd be extra on the protection end despite everyone else said no need for more.
Normally, if you don't have any protection measures in place, it's quite easy for unbounds to influence your pendulum and you may not know who you're communicating with. So CH suggests verifying through a few sources to make sure it's the spirit(s) in your Keep who gave you that info. And they're right.
But even if my Keep has 0 protection measures, my pendulum was spell casted with protection, literally by an entire coven, so it couldn't be influenced in any shape or form. And if there was, the protection team would be on point, like Satella already said.
I hope this gives you some new ideas and clears the air, if any.
I've clicked and read through all of the links on CH shop site too by the way. And there are a bazillion of them including third-party items/spells. I think I know their store quite well by now. So I come up with the idea to use a binding box for Darknorth's pendulum. This is a "cheap" way to access to protection spells for your cherished objects from being ruined by outside forces. Yes, anything you put into it will be protected by the said spells. So you can make charms for friends.
