This question strikes a huge cord in me. It's something I wish I could ask the angels, but Inward Quest comes pretty close to that.
Do people attract bullies? Why is it that even young children attract bullies? What's the best way to mold harmony into your life where everyone gets along?
(Personal note: I know I've asked more than a fair share of questions recently, so I hug you for your patience and willingness. Thankyou everyone)

Why do bullys do what they do? For the simple reason that subconsciously they feel inferior and unadaquate and try to compensate for this by bullying those that appear to be weaker. Notice that a bully is a coward for they wont bully people that will strike back in like but will allways latch onto those that are for whatever reason unable to respond in kind. What bullies dont know is that by the very act of bullying they are showing their weakness. Yes they are weak and inferior in their mental makeup but of course they don't know this for they think that by bullying they are showing their strength, power and superiority when in fact they are showing the lack of strength, power and superiority by over compesating for this lack by bullying.
So how does one deal with a bully? It depends on what type of bullying is received for there are many different forms. Some like to use physical abuse where as others like to use verbal abuse and than you get the real sickos that use mental abuse and some use all for the sake of disempowering others. When they disempower others it makes them feel powerful and superior and in control. It is like an addiction for without this they feel lost and weak and insignificant.
Remember that a bully is nothing more than a insecure and weak human being that is afraid of losing their power so they have to rob you of yours to feel good. They are nothing more than "Power Parasites". Of course they don't know this and would rather die than admit it. The real reason for their bulling is hiden deep within their psyche and they need profesional psycological help to figure out what causes them to be the way they are. Knowing this alone should make any victim have some compasion for their bully but compasion aside you have to think of yourself first and how to help yourself avoid being a victim and even more why do you allow yourself to be a victim in the first place.
Are you afraid? Fear is one of the bigest reasons people allow themselves to be bullied so if you are afraid of being beaten up or insulted or made to feel small in front of others or are afraid for your safety, that's OK. It is perfectly normal to feel afraid and it is a naturl reaction for self preservation. Do you feel you are too meek and kind and people take that to be a sign of weakness? In most cases of bulling that's the cause for your bully needs to pick on someone he/she thinks wont retaliate and in not doing so will make the bully feel strong. So should you learn to be more asertive to prevent yoursef from being bullided in the future? By all means go ahead and learn to empower yourself.
Report bullying and if it is just petty bulling put a stop to it by asserting yourself but please be carefull for sometimes bullying is not just petty but serious and this should be reported to the authorities. No serious bully should be aproached without seeking help so report and ask for help. There are a number of ways to deal with bullies and below are just a few.
Grow with love and compassion.

People attract bullies by being weak or different, usually through no fault of their own, although some like perpetually being a victim on some level.(certainly not all) People become bullies through their need for displays of power and control. People enable and empower bullies by laughing along, giving encouragement, or doing nothing to stop it. What are the reasons for those behaviors? They can be so many! Perhaps it is mental illness. Or personality problems they developed as a child in watching others act that way. Or perhaps in this incarnation they agreed to take part in this for some reason. Perhaps they are helping someone else learn karmic lessons. I can think of so many reasons that come into play with bullying, and believe that no simple answer is possible and that there can be many reasons behind it, some metaphysical and some not.

How do you feel when you are bullied? Disempowered? Weak? Useless? That is what needs shifting by practising the opposite and when you do, you won't experience bullies that make you feel this way.
Eyes off the bully and working out its reasons, etc. It's your creation that you don't want any more.

There's some great insight here, and clearly a lot of charge about the concept of bullying. Bullying and victim-hood are two sides of the same coin metaphysically. Both are aspects of the archetype of the victim. Victims create bullies, and bullies create victims. The key to transcending this dance is to work on any trace of victim-hood inside. Victim energy takes many forms aligned with thoughts like: I don't have any choice or say, I don't get any breaks in life, I have to work hard and struggle for everything, I don't have enough (fill in the blanks, money, friends, self-control...), and even - and I know that this may inspire much resistance - I guess Spirit had a different plan for my highest good....
When we work on transmuting our own victim archetype energy we become bully proof in the sense that we won't resonate or gravitate towards either bullies or victims.
Following the advice given here for dealing with bullies in 3-D reality is a great start in working towards liberation from the victim archetype.

All is One. As Within So Without. Both bully and bullied wanted it otherwise it could not occur. There really is only One of us here. The Conqueror is the conquered and the conquered is the Conqueror all is one. What we imagine will determine our vibrational state and we will experience a reflection that corresponds to the state in our circumstances. A person with a clean, serene state of mind can only experience serenity, but someone who has a victim mentality or has a feeling of dis-empowerment is more likely to experience bullying and the like.
