The more I learn the less I know



The more I learn the less I know. I can't think of anything in my life where this is more true than with the reality of and interaction with spirits in any kind of loving way (friendship, companionship, etc.). All from occultists to the abrahamic religions seek to dominate, to enslave, to gain subserviant fealty of spirits and to bind them against their will.

Has anyone heard of "friendship"?  

Now, I'm sure that some spirits need to be treated in a certain hard-handed way, and those spirits are probably ones I'll never summon anyway.

But not all spirits are that way and need to be treated that way.

I'm reminded of a friend who asked me for help with a spirit who was making his job hell.  My friend was a plumber, and when he would go upstairs, the spirit would undo all his plumbing fittings.  Lol.

Anyway, my friend called me and asked me to banish the spirit.  I said no, it's probably his home and you're the tresspasser.  He said then what can I do?  I said lemme think about it a bit.

I meditated on the problem and figured out a win/win.  The spirit was attached to the place, and he just wanted to relevant again.  That was his frustration.  So, I had my friend get food and put it in a bowl, to stand at a crossroads at night and offer it as an offering to Hecate (Goddess of earthbound spirits) and to ask her to bless a small bottle of whiskey that I had him buy.

He did this and the next morning he went back to that house, and into the basement.  I told him to explain that he promised that he would be gone after he finished his plumbing work, and that the plumbing would make the house better.  I told him to tell the spirit he didn't mean to intrude, only to do his job and be gone.  He then uncorked the bottle of whiskey and left it in a hidden place in the cellar telling the spirit that the whiskey was a gift.

He said the spirit stopped taking his fittings a part and that the atmosphere just felt as if a great weight had been lifted.

He finished his job, he got paid, the spirit understood and felt better, the end.

How did I learn what to do?  It came to me in meditation.  

See, spirits are people or entities.  Entities think rather alien to how we think (we think circularly while they seem to think lineraly.  God and Goddesses are different of course as are many other entities), but they still respond to love and kindness in one way or another.

In my own experience I'll read about a spirit (one that is amicable to humans) and then read about what magicians say they are like, and the process that they followed to invoke it.  It never fails that half of them report the spirit trying to be crafty, to be elusive.

Well, duh?  They are playing the game as set up for them to play.  

I summon with kindness, with ideas of making friends (if possible).  I summon just to feel and understand the spirit, to bask in it's nature.  The 78 spirits of the tarot are a good bunch to work with. Also the 24 elder Futhark spirits, or spirits of the runes. 

I've only had one badass demon show up, and damn... yeah, they exist.  Anyone who says love spirits are demons hasn't felt a real "hate everything that is" demon.

The walls were practically dripping in blood.  The demon felt exactly as one who murders, and the horror of the one being murdered all wrapped up into one being.

I felt around for my protective spirits... they were gone.  

Oh, I prayed... yes, indeed I did.  It took a bit, but he left.  He was raw power of the most evil, nasty, ancient sort.  I don't know who he/she was and I don't care.  I'll never forget that experience.  As the worst thing I've ever felt, I use that to gauge the alignment of a spirit when I meet them.

I asked my mentor at the time why the demon came and she said because it was meant to at that time. Yeah, textbook answer but probably true. I didn't mention the silence of my protective spirits, but I have the feeling they weren't allowed to intervene in the "meeting".  Now that I remember back, they felt gone before it even got here for some reason.

I don't presume to know the rules.

I once was meditating and I felt something icky coming towards me from the periphery but one of my protective spirits told it "No, this one belongs to the Goddess."  The icky thing just turned and went away.  Dunno what that was about either but at least I could get back to thinking about not thinking and meditate.  Well, except for wondering who "The Goddess" was, was it an aspect of "THE" Goddess or was it a particular "face" of the The Goddess or... ah heck with it... you can figure out how the rest of my meditation session went.

Now, my personal favorites are the Olympian Spirits.  Every time they've been helpful, kind, friendly, and they answer true (not saying I can always understand their meanings though).  Honestly, they are really great to get to know.  They teach us who we are in all our aspects of being.  Or, they'll beat the snot out of you.  50/50.  Hah, no I've heard stories, but they all seem ok to me?  I don't seem to have any problems with them.  Then again I just want to know who they are.  To "commune" with them and to gain understanding of who they are, what they can teach me about who they are "in me". Maybe others are up to no good when they summon them?  I don't know.

But the name Olympic "Spirit" is a misnomer.  They are Gods in every sense of the word.  Long story short, I look at them like white light hits a prism and 7 colors are created from the one.  Those "colors" are the Olympian Spirits.  Take them all together and you've got a blueprint for who we are and who God is.  Well, my theory at any rate... and as close as we can get on this plane. Why does white light have to split on this plane?  Because it's too pure for here.  It had to be split, and the colors became dominion.  I'm talking of the "as above" form of white light, not the "as below" kind we see when we see white light here.

Some magicians use magick circles and triangles of art to talk to these Gods.

You think that magick circle and triangle of art are going to keep an Olympian Spirit in it's place?  

Hahahaha.  Ok.

My best advice to anyone who wishes to get to know them is to not piss them off and to be polite and humble.  There aren't any other rules. 

I got myself shamed out of a wiccan tradition because of my views regarding spirits. To most wiccans there's Goddesses, Gods, Fae, and demons.  That's about it.

Meh.  I have proof enough that I'm on the right track.

Anyone who comes to my home remarks at how peaceful it feels, how protected they feel. Like they can just relax for once in a really long time.  Actually it's hard to get rid of the guests because they like the feeling so much.  Makes me feel like Bilbo wanting to get rid of the dwarves sometimes :)

That's the effect I've observed of having good spirits around. That's the lasting affect of affection for what is not seen.

Why do I receive this?  I don't know.  Either grace, friendship, or I have a galactic multipass that says I'm a special needs wizard (who rides the metaphoric short bus and licks windows).

  1. Hi Rafe,

    wow, what an experience. The "Goddess" your spirits mentioned could be (could!) your patron.

    Im honest with you, i myself don't fully understand the patron stuff but as far as i understand its an immortal entity that watches over you... kind of a spiritual mentor.

    You know my story rafe... I think i made contact to my patron and she fulfilled my biggest wish (a "traditional" succubus companion).

    You know, this new succubus feel different then the ones i mentioned to you... more intense more lovely... i really think this time its "the one" like yours... at least i hope so :)

    The part where your guardian spirits "left" could be meant as a test/prove that you can handle the "dark" side as well... guess we will find out.

    2. I like a loving succubus more than a sex sex sex one. I guess I mean I like mine because it's love with sex and she even helps me with stupid things like where did I put my keys? I'll quit looking for them and ask her and I swear I can feel a little excitement from her for some reason, then I get a mental image of them wherever they are. I'll go to where the mental image of them was she sent and poof... there they are just like she showed me. Works for everything, really.

      Last night I tested it a little bit... I was playing a game in an open world and couldn't find a place. I asked her if she could help me find a spot? Anyway, I kept looking then suddenly zoned out a bit, wandered randomly and bam... right to the spot.

      Pretty amazing I think.

      I'm thinking it works two ways so I also send her a mental image of me hugging her, or or me giving her flowers or something like that, and I can feel a pleasant emotional response. Something to try to enrich your experience with yours :)
