lilith an enigma revised

  Lilith from Goddess to Demoness; and back again.
The story of Lilith is perhaps the oldest as Humanity’s time on earth. She first started as Lilitu a goddess of fertility and sex in Mesopotamia. And has been identified with Abtagigi as Kalili. And later identified as the Hand of Inanna/Ishtar and her high priestess. In her darker side she has been identified with Ardat Lili a summerian succubus as well as with Lamashtu  a female demon that preyed upon children and  and pregnant women. When in 508bce the Babylonians  under Nebuchadnessar  attacked Jerusalem. And took some  of the Israelites back to Babylon. The jewish captives incorporated some of the gods and goddesses into their Religion. and labelled them as demons.  One of these was Lilith.She appears in the book of Isaiah chapter 34:14-15 and the Alphabet of Sirach. the latter as the first wife of Adam. who left him after an arguement over equality. and was demonized. This demonizing of Lilith continued through the middle ages in mystical commentaries of the Torah such as the Zohar. Which borrows from the Alphabet of Sirach. and looks upon Lilith as a queen of demons. and mother of the succubi whom are known as the Liliot or Lilim and as Qarinah Djinneyeh in Islam.  However not all of the books of the Zohar saw Lilith as evil.  In the Zohar the book of Concealment chapters 4 and 5 tells of the symbolism of the two prositutes whom came before king Solomon. who were amazed by his wisdom. and was attached to it. it also speaks of the daughters of men who seduced the sons of God would be reconcilied to Adam through  the Wisdom of solomon. the daughters in some commentaries  are actually  the daughters of Lilith. (see the Zohar volume 5 the pritzker edition pages 569-580 notes 67-68;79 translated by daniel c matt). One kabbalist of the 16th century who’s name was rabbi Issac Luria went further to say that Lilith was actually reconciled to Adam through the marrige of Leah to Jacob. (see window of the soul: the kabbalah of issac luria pages 85, 158) and there are many Liliths (148). the other Liliths one is the wife of adam qadmon also refered to as the first eve. another Lilith is refered to as isheth zenninim.  or Malahat a darker Lilith whom is the wife of Samael.  identified with Cain and Esau in the kabbalah.  In the late 19th to early 20th century a christian fantasy writer by the name of george mac donald  wrote his book Lilith. that tells of Lilith’s reconciliation to Adam and Eve.
Lilith in Islam is hardly mention except as Al Qarinah the mother of the Djinn. whom is later identified as Laylah A mysterious divine feminine entity in the poetry of the Sufis. Most Muslims and Sufi agree that the Djinn can be redeemed if they turn away from evil as surah 72 or sura al jinn teaches.
what all this means is that Lilith is slowly emerging from being ostracized and demonized; to be restored as one of the Aspects of the Divine Feminine.  whom is called the Shekinah, Allat, Sophia.
in celtic mythology she is linked to the Morrigan the phantom Queen . through their shared Avatar Morgan the Fey.
and in greek mythology with Hecate, Medea, and Lamia.

for  me personally  Lilith is the primordial Eve, She and her daughters whom are also Liliths are Grandmothers, mothers , sisters and at times spouses to the human race.

    How does one tell a difference between a Qarinah and a “regular succubus” that a lot of bloggers are with? In fact, how does one tell the difference between the species other than ‘they just feel different?’

      Actually it’s the name given to a succubus in the middle east.
      In the middle east especially Arabic countries they refer to all none human spirits as djinn. A succubus is referred to as a Qarinah. There is not much of difference. I had my spirit ladies come with the coolness as if they took a swim or a bath. To the warmth of being under the covers.

        Thanks for the quick reply! Do you think they have ‘original’ or ‘true’ form? What do you think they look like if so? Something like from The Book of Felicity or Kitab al-Bulhan maybe?

        I never asked my ladies about their true form. From what I gather they can become as beautiful and seductive as can be. Or down right ugly and terrifying as well. I see them as both. If they have a true form. They resemble the djinn or Fae or Faery folk which both are kin. Even human spirits can be frightening at times.

    I’ve another question, if you don’t mind, and this is a bit more personal. Have you ever experienced your ladies ‘spraying you’ with some kind of liquid? Basically feeling like drops of water on your skin, usually cool water? A lot of people who share these experiences online report this, so I’m curious if you’ve experienced the same thing, and as to what your opinion on this liquid is? As in, what does it mean. Thanks!

      Sure. The answer is yes. But I won’t go into details about it. Only that from a medical point of view it seems to happen when they themselves like human women reach an orgasm. And if this is hard to understand. Remember the old pagan and esoteric phrase as above so is below. Which means that which is in the physical world is a reflection of the spirit world.

        I suspected that would be the case, but a part of me dismissed the idea because this would occur at random times, when we were not doing anything sexual. Interesting. Thanks for your time.

      • acrossinfinity August 26, 2019 at 7:30 am #

        No problem. About that when it’s not sexual. Well just because we are not doing it. Doesn’t mean they are not. You have to remember. These are spirits and spiritual beings. Just because we are not responding on a physical level. Doesn’t mean we are not on a spiritual level. Sex is a driving force of creation. It’s in many myths and legends. About gods and goddesses, about djinn and Fae, etc. It’s the reason why sex is connected to marriages. Because it’s on a spiritual level. But marriage isn’t necessary. Since devotion to the one you love is all that matters.

    Yeah, they do find loving thoughts from their partner arousing and what not. So what you said makes sense. Once again, thanks for a detailed reply. πŸ™‚
