I know as a friend, that is true, is Lilitu the same as Lilith? What about in a relationship, though, how would she treat a guy and how would the guy
relate to her?
Mythological-wise, one of her roles was to draw men into the temples so she is not 100% misandry-filled. But, when looking at what Judeo-Christian
culture did to her by combining her with Lamashtu, the side of her that defends women with a rather biased eye becomes more justifiable.
Everyone in a relationship, whether male or female, deserves equal representation under the law - an imbalance in favor of either sex makes the
relationship unhealthy. Both sides have to have a say, or it is not a healthy relationship -
Being a demon (or angel) does not excuse a being from quirks and faults. Even gods and goddesses have their personality ticks.
Is it inappropriate for her to be asking my other friend Topal to release me so she can have me? I mentioned to Topal that it is true that Lilith
asked, and we had talked about it the night before...
I can't answer that as I don't really have the authority to say what is appropriate or not for somebody like her. I can say, thought, that it
sounds like you are only getting one very focused aspect of her company. Lilitu is far more dynamic than just being a lusty demon who gets jealous.
In fact, when in full aspect, Topal may find her to be a valuable ally in keeping the two of you together.
Just a side note:
I'm not willing to assume we are talking about the same being for sure but I'm answering as if we are.
A question about your custody battles, is Lilita considerate of the guys involved, or is she taking inappropriate and unethical measures to favor the
So far, it's unpredictable. Immediate gripping fear is what my clients have reported their ex-husbands feeling. This stops when they stop trying to
be threatening or telling lies about my clients (in one case, anyway). Aside from that, it's just unbelievable misfortune. It was bad enough during
the last one that I would have not performed it had I known ahead of time.
Keep in mind, I do not invoke nor evoke her when performing my works in this regard but she is naturally a component in all I do now and I can tell
As far as being "considerate", I don't care. I screen my requests very carefully and gain agreement with more than just the client. These men are
themselves doing very bad things. I do not take actions against custody battles for the sake of it; these just happened
to be custody battles
involving men who were abusive and unfair in one form or another. Nothing will happen to them if they withdraw from their transgressions and the
connection between the action and reaction is obvious to them after a time.
Wow... I just typed a whole lot of crap I normally don't talk about. I might edit that out later so copy it if you want it for posterity.
My friend Topal is a feminist, but really didn't like Lilith at all when she came to talk to her. She told me that it wasn't okay, Lilith should be
happy that we were friends. She also warned me that this might not actually be Lilith at all but a demon, might not be female at all, but male -
Lilith came from Lilitu who is technically a Sumerian demon. However, "demon" is a different concept in that culture. "Demon" and "angel" are
practically one and the same from my perspective, they are just patrons for different things.
The "feminist" reputation of hers comes from the Hebrew tales they made up to redefine Lilitu. It's from the whole "Adam's first wife" thing
which isn't something I subscribe to.
Is Lilitu possibly a daughter of Lilith?
No. Well, yes... in a literature/spiritual successor sense of the word "daughter". Lilith is Lilitu, just a different culture (Hebrews largely)
reinventing her but definitely not mother and daughter in the conventional definition.
I also don't think that sucking the life energy out of guys until they die is appropriate behavior?
That has not been my experience. The tales of her being a succubus and baby snatcher is, again, the Judeo-Christian attempt to demonize previous
religions. They combined her with Lamashtu who did
do many of those things.
This is not to say there is no sexual side to her because there most certainly is. But as far it being a negative and draining experience, I can't
relate. It has been a very rewarding partnership.
I can tell you that my daughter and wife have a very vigilant and relentless spiritual guardian over them. I pity the man who wrongs them (including
me... which keeps me in check).
