So i finally bought the book ‘DoM’ and it seems interesting that i want to try it out. I am still half way through the book, but there is a lot of confusion and questions that are making me feel lost and unsure. Before anyone coming to me saying “use the search function there is a lot of topics on this” well guess what? i did!
One of the things i found that made me feel more lost is a reply on a topic by @DarkestKnight saying its more like a framework than restraining the spirit by using the gods names and angels. but, in the beginning of the book the author states its to restrain the demon to do the work we desire??? so is it restraining or not! I know a lot would say that there is different paths and different traditions and systems that people follow. I am not sure what is the title of my system/tradition that i am following, but what i know is that I work with demons in a friendly working relationship way. I don’t worship them or anyone. i am done worshiping and in terms of religion (if its true then i accept my spot in hell with lucifer) if not then who cares
I don’t want to command or restrain them… i go by “asking/requesting” their help in a situation and offering something in return, and if they wanted something else and i was able to perceive that desire since my senses are not fully develop yet, i would offer it if possible or depending on how much i want to achieve my desire. So, this book as much as it seems that a lot of people have found success using it, makes me wonder if i should use it, but with the intention of using these god names and angels to generate more power and energy to get the results i am seeking and not to restrain! do you think demons would understand my point of view or would they feel offended.
Furthermore, while i was doing my research i found someone who said they were feeling unwell or lets say uncomfortable while reading the book and making them feel worried. I honestly was surprised cause i felt the same way and in addition to that i actually felt as if there was a spirit next me and sending me thoughts. Note: i am in a pact with king belial currently. So was that him telling me not to use it with him? was it my imagination? or was it my principles in magic saying thats not the kind of approach u said u would follow?
Lastly, i noticed the sigils are done inside a circle and a triangle and they look a bit different than the goetia sigil’s. for instance, belial’s sigil:
it looks different in someway and it made me wonder do i have to draw the whole thing? or can i just use that sigil without the triangle and circle with god names and angels on it? Also if i were to use it as it is… do i have to color it with the same colors or is it all done with black color?
Please tell me what do you think about the book even if you have not used it? and if u did what was ur experience with it? Do you think i should follow it even though i had such feelings? is there a book that follows my approach/system of magic? and if yes, is there some that don’t have that long ritual ceremonies!? or just follow the modern version?
