Okay so I recently started working with Belial and everything has been going well. A day or two ago he told me he would prepare me for anything, which was a very generic statement until I found out what he meant.
He told me to envoke him tonight and he would help me with divination, and I did. I did everything right, and all I got was momentary flashes of him until I heard “End the ritual.” For a split second before that I thought he was there, but the energy was very different, weak, nothing like Belial. It hit me that something else was there which didn’t make since because I knew Belial was watching me.
I blew out the candles, and cleansed everything, I started to panic because I already doubt everything enough as it is. Then it hit me, that thing was waaayyyy to weak to overpower him, the way Belial was acting was, well, acting. Over dramatic, like when I would tell my siblings they were adopted.
The second I cleansed everything I felt his energy again and he admitted that it was a test, a preparation featuring what is now my least favorite of all his familiars. Now I have a few questions. 1. has anyone else had an experience like this, 2. Do you have any advice on how to get over this, 3. WHY???
