As to where inspiration comes from for demons and angels, I think it is a combination of vision, emotion, and attempting to put what one see's/feels
down on canvas, not easy to do when dealing with angels and demons.
Unless you have seen one, then it becomes a little easier....
I often wonder if these spirit entities manifest themselves according to our own imagination and interact with that?
When I was opened up to all of that I had the craziest experiences. It was mentally much too beyond my capacity to cope.
I went into all the magic stuff after deciding that the Hebrew Scripture was just one of many angles of perception and stopped believing the Devil
existed as such and thought all that usual stuff that it was just a demonization of Pan and other pagan entities liked the Horned God, etc.
The problem is that through that I ended up being in total chaos and torment and Satan revealing Himself and asking for my homage and worship.
Once I got that far I did a very swift u turn and went running back like a screaming and frightened child to Jesus, begging forgiveness. It took a
long time for my psyche to escape from the darkness I had opened myself up to.
Magic is a strange business. Back then I was so successful in worldly terms; everything I wanted would materialise. Yet at the same time I was living
in torment with terrors in the night.
With magic I think we disturb the natural order and there is always a big price to pay. I barely escaped with my sanity intact.
The rabbit hole is as deep as we wish it to go. I went as far as I did and came running back out having really disturbed myself.
Playing with that stuff is detrimental and nothing "good" comes out of it.
But fools rush in where Angels fear to tread!
