difference between spirits and entities?

8 Dec

not really. my own spirits laugh at the classification of  spirits and entities.
they see humans as spirits with clothing (i.e. flesh.)
using the term entity is used by most occultists  and mystics in attempt to separate the human and non-human. like using the term souls, ghosts, entities, etc.
the truth is we are all from ONE SOURCE>
that source is the Divine Masculine and Feminine
God and Goddess whom are one>

spirit keeping :you own path.

8 Dec

spirit keeping to me is a personal path that one has a personal relationship with one’s spirit.
that no one can really direct you.  it is the matter of one’s heart. 
everyone has a different way of seeing how this should be done. and how it is addressed.
although a beginner may need guidance at first. in the end the path of a spirit keeper is a path that one does alone.  it is between the keeper and the spirits.

how to deal with those who are negative towards your spirits

22 Oct

if its skeptics. just laugh with them.  swallow  your pride. and just go along. you know the truth. who cares.
issues at home with those who see spirit keeping as demonic, evil, etc because of their damned beliefs based in their religions, etc.
sadly you can’t fight against such things. the only thing you can do is pretend to be complicent, agree with them. but hide your spirits. and pretend you are a collector of gems, antiques, etc. hiding the true nature of your collecting. witches, mystics, and shamans have been doing for thousands of years. hiding within their religious practices of the religion of sorciety of their time.  although some have been discovered during the burning times. the majority kept it hidden for centuries.

paths of shamanism: your own vision quest

13 Oct

i have, several times taken my own vision quests. there is nothing complicated about it. all you need  to do is do some research on what path of shamanism that you  want to follow.
or through them discover your own path. Shamanism my friend is like a road connected to other roads. those roads are paths that were created by other shamans. their roads help us make our own road  to our own vision quest and enlightenment.

the Dybbuk

30 Aug

I decided to write about this since the new movie entitled: the possession  is out as well as  on  an episode of paranormal witness  of the sy fy channel is portraying  is dealing  on this subject.
What is a Dybbuk?
A dybbuk is a spirit that attaches itself to a person, place, and thing.
Mostly it is a human spirit that refuses to move on until it has completes a task.
However it also applys to human spirits as well as non human spirits that are  malevolent in its intentions with the living.
According to the kabbalah these spirits are usually male. And attach themselves to women. And they are usually dispelled by reading passages from the torah or  tanakh. As well as reciting prayers such as a Kaddish.
The spirit is either driven through an open window. Or forced into an object.
Which is then inscribed with certain phrases, prayers, that are in hebrew.
Such as wine cabinet (as seen in the movie and in the the t.v. program.
Jewish mystics he kabbalists feel most hauntings and possessions are caused by Dybbuk.

who are the djinn?

19 Aug

who are the djinn?

the djinn are spirit beings said to be created  from smokeless fire  long before the creation of man.

according to islamic religious and mystical texts. this was  thousands of years before man.  and were created by Allah and Allat.
these beings were created as stewards of the earth and the universe.

and were divided by several groups.
these are the ghoul, afrit, the aamar,  the jann, the marid, the qarin, the shaytan.

the shaytan being the worst are refered to as the red djinns

and are the ‘demons.’ they hate the human race.  however  not all are evil.

the afrit or ifrit are  darker djinn who dwell in the desolate places of the world in hidden or invisible cities. not all ifrit are evil. some of them are my companions.

the ghoul are djinn who dwell in burial grounds and tombs. and feed of the life essences of a newly buried corpses. they are the shades of myth and legend. however like the ifrit;  not all are evil. and do help those in need.

the aamar  and the jann are  djinn that are interested in our world and us. they have inspire some of fairy lore. as well as nature spirits.

the marid are godlike or deify spirit beings. that inspire some of the myths and legends of the worlds. they are at war with the shaytans. and are helpful against evil.

the qarin are djinn who have relationships with humans. and are said to be the  incubi or succubi. and in some accounts are the incubi

and succubi. and are called qarinei and qarinahei

like us the djinn have the power to choose good or evil. and are good and evil.

mostly the evil ones are the shaytans lead by iblis who is said to refused to bow before adam and eve  at   their creation. because of  this  iblis and his djinn hate humanity.  and the good djinn are at war with him.
It is said in some legends that Lilith is the mother of all the djinn. And according to the Kabbalah  the spirits in their writings the parallel the djinn in islamic folkalore are : the Shedim, Shiddahim, Lilioth, Lilim, Seirim.
Their beliefs:
according to the quran (sura 72) some believe in Allah (God) or Allat (Goddess). some do not. some sources go far ar

to say that there are christian djinn, jewish djinn, muslim djinn. as well as pagan djinns  as well as satanic djinn.

as noted; like us they have free will and have the ability to choose between good and evil.

descriptions:

according to middle eastern folkalore they have human like form that can be either majestic and beautiful to something terrifying.

But they are master shape shifters. and can take any form they choose. and have abilities that are  far

beyond humanity which their psychic powers seem like magick to us. however this power is not

beyond us. its just we haven’t learned it yet. and are limited by how we preceive the universes

however they  are like us:

besides having free will. they are born. grow old and die. their life span is measured in eons.

the youngest being the aamar the oldest being the marid. they have family units: a father, mother,

and a child. each family is part of a clan. each clan is ruled by a chieftan. each chieftan answers to o

prince or princess. that prince or princess answers to a king or queen. those kings and queens

they answer to a surpreme sultan or sultanna. like us they are divided into nations. and co exist with our world but also exist in their own plane of existence; their own dimensional plane. that we sometimes reach in dreams or shamanistic experiences.

djinn like us are divided between two sexes. but like us have their own deviants.

the males are called djinni. the females: djinneyehei
they eat. sometimes our food. but mostly they draw energy from the universe. but eating for them is a form of amusement and enjoyments

their cities exist partly in our world. but mostly in their world. and the entrance points are in the highest mountains. to hottest deserts, and other desolate places.
they like the fae have places on this world where they through like the wadi rum in Jordan or the cave of the djinn outside of Oman

please note :

what i write here is not a reflection of my beliefs. but what i’ve read about the djinn in several books such as the following:
the djinn and their hidden agenda by rosemary guiley and philip imbrogno
legend of the fire spirits by r. lebling
living with djinn by barbara drieskens.
my personal belief is that like us the djinn as well as the fae, succubi and incubi,  and other spirit beings are like us have the ability to choose good and evil. and those whom i have in my collection of spirit vessels are loving, kind, affectionate, are good natured.
i love them.

spirit keeping: revised

18 Aug

what is spirit keeping?
well to me; contrary  to the title. it has more to do with keeping the vessels that the spirit is connected to or bonded with.
i also learned that the spirits themselves are actually watching over the keeper.
spirit keeping for me began when i was a teenager when i became first involved with a succubus.
after this  throughout my life i had collected antiques such as an old medieval flogger and mace that had paranormal phenomena such as a orb appearing above it. to the sound of battle coming from it. as well as an  old bronze statue of the hindu goddess durga-kali.
recently i became interested in collecting djinn haunted items. and was fascinated  with  both the marid and the ifrit.
both djinn races are easy to work with. and will communicate with you providing you are patient with them.
the paranormal phenomena that follow when i adopted them were anything from full bodied apparitions, orbs, and streaks of light.
next i adopted fae: woodland and  fire faes. they are a hoot. they tease me at times. and sometimes i hear them giggle. however if i’m not feeling good. they are always with me. and as i sleep they rub my back. and neck.
one night i was watching television. and i saw something fly past me. at first i thought it was a large moth. then i realised that the moth had a body of a tiny human being with dark hair.
that night i went to bed. my neck had a cramp. and felt them on my back. while my succubus laid beside me. i heard them say: the magic man is hurting. so i felt them rub my neck.
i have so far collected a khodam whom is the most majestic being i ever seen. as well as wraith. whom appear to me as warrior women.
it took me a month  to bond with my  first. however i never did any real meditation. although i studied zen meditation as well as various visualization and awareness meditations.  i just touch the vessels and talked to them in my mind.
i never opened my third eye until later.
if i had any suggestions i could give a beginner is this:
1.be patient. sometimes bonding with an entity takes some time. as noted it took me a month or so to bond with my first a marid djinneyeh.
2. hold their vessels and talked to them in your thoughts. even if you don’t get an answer. that doesn’t mean they  are not listening.
3. love them. always tell them that you are happy that they are with you.
about the promises of the spirits making you rich, finding love, etc.
i think it depends how you interpret this.  my view is the spirits take what you already have. and help you with it.
you may get what you want. then again you may not. however as always; the entity knows what is best for you. and will act accordingly.
the main purpose is for the spirit to aid you on your spirit journey. it is no different than an angel encouraging you by signs. or a chaos demon testing your faith. and making you strong through it.
each spirit is here not only to help you in your journey. but also helping himself or herself on their journey. for by helping you; it helps itself.
this was all planned of the Divine (god / goddess) to teach all about the nature of selfless love.
to me there no greater calling than being a spirit keeper. no greater love than sharing it with a spirit.

my experiences with negative entities (spirits)

18 Aug

lets face it. if you are a sensitive, a paranormal investigator, a shaman, witch, wiccan, wizard, spirit keeper, paranormal collector. you will have run ins with negative entities. whatever they be demons, fallen angels, dark fays, red djinn, bad human spirits, dark succubae, etc.
i myself  had run ins because i’m a student of shamanism as well as the occult and mysticism  and being a spirit keeper  i  have  had experiences.
first thing i learned is don’t be  too afraid. the other is conditioning your mind.
conditioning i refer to is an affirmation that you are a child of the divine. that god, the goddess is your parent. if you don’t believe in any deity. that’s fine too. just believe you are the light of the universe in intelligence and influence.
also remember there are good spirits; helpful spirits out there.   and you can call on them to aid you. you just need to believe.
with that said and done. the  easiest ritual to clear one’s self or home, etc of entities is just telling them to leave. not in anger. but in a calm but very strong voice to tell them to leave. depending what kind of entity you are dealing with. it is good to be polite to them. the reason for this no spirit not even a demon can ever accuse  you of being impolite. and use it against you in the spirit world. however if the spirit  is impolite to  you. you may be likewise.
if it continues (that is  the negative activities) you may use whatever prayers or rituals in your belief system against the entities.
then there is smudging:
smudging is burning either sage sticks or grounds. after you light them the latter in a smudging bowl.
ther you go from one room to the other to each corner and say the following:
in the name of father sky mother earth to all unwanted entities who wish to do me harm leave. this is my home. leave now.
i myself use rituals based on ceremonial magick of the hemetic order of the golden dawn.
this is  the banishing ritual of the lesser pentagram.  you stand at each wall and draw a pentagram as shown in diagram
hwb-lbrh-1

and you say the following:
before me raphael
behind me gabriel
at my right hand michael
at my left hand auriel
before me flames the pentagram
behind me the six rayed star
i hereby banished all negative and unwanted spirits from this space.
and repeat this at each wall of a room while burning incense which can be sandalwood, frankincense
and if you ancestry is jewish there are  some kabbalistic prayers.
most of the time i use a ritual that involves using the name of God and Goddess of the Hebrews: the tetragrammaton  and burning incense (mostly frankincense) and blessing the letters of god and goddess’s name in hebrew ( the letters themselves are in hebrew as well). as i hold the incense in my hand and point it in the directions of the earth. and at the end of the ritual i asked God and his shekinah. (the name of God’s bride the hebrew goddess) to clear my living space of negative entities. and to welcome positive ones in. i learned this ritual from reading passages in the zohar and the sefer yetzirah.
if your muslim the reading of surah 72 while burning incense such as the above can be used.
christians would read psalm 91 and  recite the lord’s prayer. as well as the hail mary if they be catholic.
if all else fails. and if you fear for the safety of your family. please seek help from paranormal investigators as well as  those of  your religious
and spiritual backgrounds.
if you are a keeper of spirits and have relationships with spirits. make certain that the spirits that you have a connection to. understand the limits and boundries of that relationship. even spirits can make mistakes. so be patient with them and love them. if there be negative spirits in  your presence. chances are they are aware of situration. and will try to get your attention. sometimes those spirits may behave in strange ways even in negative ways. do not pass judgement on them. instead asked them what is wrong. once you know. then asked for their aide and guidance.    trust them. they will help you. or lead you where you can get help.
