By permission giving do you mean permission to harm or possess you?
If that's what you mean, based on what limited experience I have, I've found that communicating and giving permission are not the same thing.
I've been giving offerings to all the spirits in my area, from helpful ones to not so helpful ones for the past month. I've seen all kinds of figures in my peripheral vision while I'm giving the offering, but none of them have tried to harm me in any way. The worst that has happened is on the first night of giving the offering, while I was about to go to sleep, I saw an image of a woman lunging at me with a knife. That freaked me the **** out but after that everything has been fine.
Maybe it's different with demons I don't know, but I think anything that has the ability to cause you any real harm would have better things to do than **** with you just because you communicated with it, unless you provoked it in any way.
If you know a banishing ritual that adds to the protection and makes it pretty safe to communicate with most things out there.
If you or anyone else have any different experiences I'd love to hear about it.
