Something I’ve been wondering about for a long time… what’s the difference between a patron demon and one you have as a companion?
Is a patron more like a teacher? If that’s the case, mine would probably be Bael, as he’s been helping me business wise (I’m trying to found my own nonprofit).
But I have several demons that are closer to friends because they check in with me a lot to see how I’m doing. Leviathan helps me process my traumatic memories by going into a trance state/astrally going to see her. Paimon helps keep my negative and intrusive thoughts at bay.
Then there’s Gremory, who has bonded with me in an almost girlfriend way. She comes almost every night and helps my anxiety calm down so I can sleep. I see her as a shadow at the top of my bed. This whole thing started with astral sex which I’ve read she gets up to with people sometimes.
So which are patrons and which are something more? And is this dangerous or fool-hardy to develop such close familiar bonds with them?
