Many people get confused between pets and familiars.Not every pet is a familiar.Familiars are spirits in animal form .Some say witches.I have came across some myths stating that animals are humans under spells.By loving them we release them.I do believe that pets that are telepathic and astral project are witches or spirits in animal form.I also believe we can create familiars in a pet form.
Lets say you have betta fish.These are also fighting fish in a variety of pretty colors.Yet I never hear of them as real familiars to witches.
How I create them is much like servitors.I look at their art,research them.Create a story about their creature much like a fairy tale.This is a good way to use storytelling/writing as a form of spell.
Name the servitor and pet the same name.Attach them to the pet.Over time,you will see them mesh into One.You should guide this either by ritual or visualization or written spell casting.
When completed,You will have taken a betta fish soul elevating it into a servitor form to mesh them into a spirit form which creates a spirit familiar in pet form.
The betta fish could be a beautiful chinese warrior spirit for yourself or even become your lover.You are elevating a fish soul into so much more .These are acts of apotheosis.kitten#0534
I have a few more posts to write on this topic.
What are your thoughts?
My beliefs are in myself.I claim no soul or spirit yet I am spirits.I hold atheist views meaning there are no Gods.There are none above me.I am able to see who I am on a spiritual level and make it my own.Spirits,gods and deities are created by us.They are our spiritual forms.We as humans walk around as gods with forgotten power.Humans forgetting who they are with out spirits or souls because that is where our power is.When craft these spirits into being us ourselves ,we allow ourselves to become more then what we are.Learn gnosis,work with possession of our own spirits that transcend into our soul.This is how the veil will lift.This is how spirits will walk the Earth.
One must go through every part of themselves.Finding tbe pieces to build or create these versions of ourselves.
I have a running list of the spirits I crafted and intregrated.I have a succubus and several deamonic versions.I have a few ancient queens and a djinn.
I am a gemini and I am able to create two souls for myself.This is soul crafting.
Recognizing the parts of ourselves in the universe,connecting with it,becoming its lover and seducing it into your soul.
Feeding it energy allowing it to speak think and feel.Make it human feed it into being powerful.Make it your own.
You will gain new abilities,skills and heal your wounded self.Battles of the self will become ways to know yourself heal and grow.
I will write more on this however if you read my blogs ,you will see much of this craft.
When we are children a lot of us had “imaginary friends”. Spirits we created with our minds to keep us entertained and be there for us when times are tough. They are there when humans fail us. They can seem so real, and even be your best friend. We might not know it at the time but these beings can be many different things from servitors, to egregores, to Tulpas, to companions gifted to us by a higher power. But…
What happens to these not so “imaginary” friends when we are done with them?
For more reasons then not we grow up and are programmed to think that magick isn’t real, that having these friends is unhealthy, that we are crazy and need therapy if we continue this nonsense…
So we forget them…
And they do what any creature that was created with such imagination for such a purpose as friendship would do… They wait for us to come back… they wait and they are ignored… they start to change as you do… they start to feel the loneliness of trying to complete their one task… they become corrupted as they start to rot away… most just disappear… Some fight to stay alive… the longer they live the more corrupt they can become maybe haunting around as “the ghost” in your life. Or breaking off connection on the hunt for new friends to fill their purpose… Is this where the legends of “the boogeyman” come from? Very possibly.
These beings can become violent and malevolent. Some become the fuel for horror stories by the campfire or demons in haunted houses. Most just look scary because they changed with the perception that things bad things. These beings will do anything they can for a “friend” which can lead to haunting or stalking. But in my opinion they can just as well be contracted to work with because of this willingness. In my opinion they are more powerful than any normal servitors being able to break away and complete these tasks on their own while also more easily controlled than most other entities because they are willing to listen and do anything to make their friends happy.
It may also be possible to break their corruption and restore them to former glory for a child’s protector. You can bind them to toys or other objects that the child holds dear. Or in their corrupted form you can bind them to their creators or others to cause chaos as they project that loneliness onto them or chase away friends and family to have them be only their friend forever. Friendship is magick you know…
The Black Knight legends are of usually unknown people, male or female, wearing black armor. They fought unfair rulers usually dethroning them and did good deeds for the poor such as give them their money back.
One such story is of a legendary black knight known as Ashor. And though the church censored these legends and tried to destroy them this legend prevailed throughout history.
Ashor stayed fit and practiced in his older age and specialized in killing kings and nobles but he would always first check if the rumors about such cruelty toward people were true before acting on such rumors. He had witnessed first hand a kings cruelty by saving an old priest who had been locked up for speaking his mind against the king. While saving the priest Ashor was horribly injured he still carried out his duty and freed the people along with carrying the priest to safety.
The priest knowing Ashor would die gave him a blessing and thanks and left him in the woods to die as he was told. When Ashor’s body bled out in those woods a demon had appeared to take him to the infernal realm for all the murder and killings and theft he had done in his life. At the same time an angel appeared to take him to the heavenly realm because of all the lives he saved and helped never keeping the stolen money. The 2 entities began to fight over who got to claim his soul. And after that Separatio appeared.
Separatio, the anonymous one, was a being completely in balance with all “good and evil”. He was neutral and has the knowledge to know good and evil are just perception of the mind. It was Separatio who lay claim to Ashor’s soul. After this Ashor’s wounds had healed. Separatio had pulled Ashor “out of the system” and granted him eternal freedom from any bonds to heaven or hell. He was also free from any fear of death, a virtual immortal, under one condition. Separatio said to him “you need not fear death or dieting, you are free to travel the world or even the universe as you please, but when you find the meaning of life and are ready to rest you must call upon me as your guide, and you must tell me what you have learned, not as something fearful but as an old friend.”
And so he did…
This story plays a lot into how I feel my magick should work. Within balance and without fear of repercussion. Freedom as pure as the soul. I hope one day to see the true face and live in of Separatio. My path may not be anyone else’s but I think we can all appreciate the story.
