Everyone knows that I was a Daemonolator for a lot of years. I thought it was 14, but I miscalculated. I was a Daemonolator for 10 years. I was counting to current time. Fucking DUH. Whoops!! I started worshiping Daemons. How did I go from worshiping Daemons to not? And just working with them on a “as needed” (or prn in medical terms, lol) basis? I don’t think *I* found Palo. My godfather said Palo is in my blood, I’m supposed to work with the Dead, be an espiritista, sell my wares, and work magic for others. It’s all in my readings. I started my studies of Palo in 2010.. Not to long after I stopped with the Daemons.
I still think Daemons are great. I don’t work with ALL of them like I used to. I have only been working with divination Daemons, mainly Astaroth and Delepitore. I also like all of the Ba’al Daemons and the Death Daemons. Do I worship them anymore? Nada. Do I respect them? Definitely.
Now that my skills are way better they were when I was a Daemonolator. I can visualize the Daemons and see them too. My divination skills are heightened. I use Daemonic oleums (oils) on my hands when I use my shells. Either Delepitore’s or Astaroth’s. Since I’m in Palo, I would use Lucero’s. but I have to come up with a better one.
I definitely like the Daemons, and I have a system of working with them. No blood offerings like Daemonolators. I still burn sigils though. I know some Goetia magicians think that’s not good, but no one I’ve ever known, myself included, has had any wrath from a burnt sigil. In fact, I get a positive response and so do Daemonolators. I’ve never encountered an angry Daemon.
Leviathan will always be with me, as he’s my patron. I feel him around me, at times. I have his sigil tattoo on my upper arm. I don’t regret that tattoo, but my other tattoo, I kinda regret. It was the OFS’ mascot, Fred the infinity snake. (That’s what I call him, I don’t remember is official name, except for Fred)
I’m probably getting a new tattoo on my right lower arm, but it’s going to be something Palo related. Nothing confirming allegiance yet, just something cool. Maybe the Congo cosmogram, simplified version.
That’s all I have to write for now.
