I agree with those who say do not engage with summoning demons unless you have been guided to knowledge and have very strong connections with
practises in white magick/occult arts.
I also fully endorse what MischeviousElf has been kind enough to explain.
I am not comfortable divulging much of this side of myself, seems when i do people always want to know too much about it and i do not encourage, not
my place in this life to do so, but sufficed to say i've been born with certain 'talents' lets say, so have been a natural most of my life.
Before i was 21-22 years old, main battles etc aged 14-19, i had a very bad time with demonic forces which were very dark indeed and did their level
best to subvert me to a path of darkness.
I prevailed, these days evil sees me and it runs.
I know full well though, too many take the forces of darkness lightly and try to summon and control dark demons to do their bidding.
Not going to happen without somebody being consumed and used as a tool for evil unless you have a lot of occult knowledge, which most cannot access,
it's called occult for a reason.
Much of it isn't even written knowledge you read in a book, it's Astral knowledge which demands levels of practise achieved to even be aware of it
and to reach the levels of the adepts, requires many years.
Summoning demons is not something you learn about for a few months from books, cast summoning spells and presto, a powerful entity appears to avenge
your foes etc or lead you to powers or riches, those who do who are doing so from naivity as to the gravitas and potency in demonology and magick,
will regret it, some worse than others, depends what has been invoked or summoned.
There are no shortcuts to acquiring the necessary knowledge and most are guided to it.
Not all demons are evil, all are tools on the physical plane of existence, we do use them because a balance needs to remain and many influences affect
that balance, but the original poster wasn't speaking of engaging demons as to the machinations of other levels of existence, they were speaking of
summoning to control.
As has been said, light or dark, those who know how to and still remain sane & alive, work with them, not the other way around.
In our creed we do engage demons for good reason or foul but wise people do not do so without much practise.
Channelling white demons using wiccan arts is safer than the Satanists demanding and forcing foul demons to endow them with power and riches.
Whatever, whoever, reach a level high enough to use protection magick correctly First and foremost and channel lesser demons
whatever, don't FFS invoke them to do bad things for you or summon them for power.
You've to be "Adept" before even thinking of it & even then it Will adversely affect your personality, turn you insane and megalomaniac and you
die, then your energy in existence is theirs, those who do that are only obsessed with this life and being powerful, they don't care about their next
existences and how different it is being owned by dark demons in the non corporeal planes above physical realms.
Don't fool with magick and occult arts before you know how and you aren't going to learn unless guided from an early age along that path, you know
when you are guided and again, not exactly something you ask for, you have to have the right energies and mind & develop yourself with time &
The crafts are not something you choose, more they choose you, a sort of quantum/temporal dynamics element.
People have said to me along my path, i wish i could do what you do and know what you know etc, my reply is usually, no you don't, you may think you
do, but if what's in my mind and soul jumped into yours, it'd destroy you, mine has been a very hard path and i'm lucky to still exist, put it that
Evil may run a mile from me now, wasn't always the case.
I leave it there.
