Hey everyone ! So lately I had to work on something and I’m still working on it but from all of the spirits helping me over that special task, my spiritual father introduced me to work with Duke Dantalion for that task. At the beginning I just ignore the proposition but then had an obstacle and just in that day I’ve seen the post of @Sha with all the informations on Dantalion and what do I see ? He’s one of the Duke of King Paimon who’s my spiritual father. I was shocked.
If you want to see his personnality, the binding and a little bit of conversation jump on the bold titles.
So, for the first part of my work it was okay but for the second I couldn’t let my hesitation go over facts. I called on him and fuck. Well. I don’t regret AT ALL !
I asked his help for my task and he was all okay to work on it with me.
Personnality exeperienced by me :
Dantalion is almost like an alien to me, I told him. I don’t have those kind of senses with any other demons / entities in general. I was talking to him and at some moment at the beginning I was lost just because he have this special thing I can’t describe it and I really love it. He’s too interesting.
To me this spirit is everything but cold, he’s really familiar when he has seen your naked soul and it wasn’t a problem to be exposed with him. In fact he can read you totally so don’t try to hide or lie because he will know.
He have a good sense of humour, he’s very patient and empathic.
He likes to talk over anything with you especially when it gets you into your feelings because he wants to see exactly what you are, he can speak about many many things for hours with you.
Sometimes he likes to ask you a question he already know the answer just because he wanted to hear it from you, again we were this close while one first evokation so I assume he was testing me as well.
He’s very wise and “there” like I take pills to sleep and I had in mind that I wanted to take two. It was a new box didn’t took those for a long time but doing white night over white night you know… Had to sleep. He just said " Don’t take two. " I was like hm. I want to and then " That would be stupid. You will be high. " I took one and I slept like an angel. Thank you Duke Dantalion haha.
He’s not moody to me but if he tells you to do something and you do it but you try to disobey on a rule he will raise the voice. To me it wasn’t for a bad reason it’s just because he thought I was going to put the jewel away when in fact we need it for the work until he says it’s fine (but will always have it somewhere next to me I really like this spirit. It’s going to be next to my bed or something if I don’t wear it.)
Housing the spirit / Biding :
During the evokation, he asked me to bound himself in a collar. Fact is that it is a collar I’ve never paid attention to, but during the evokation I took it in my hand and I’ve seen that a little blue eye was on the colllar. Bizarre because the first time Dantalion came to me, he was in the shape of an eye.
That type of connexion is very differently experienced towards the way the spirit talks with me : in evokation / invokation I will have the voice of the spirit but here he was putting his thoughts in my head using my way of speaking and my voice. I told him about it and he said maybe it will change but get used to it for the moment.
Need as well to add a precision over the fact that it’s the first time that the conversation is this fluid and I think it’s the fact of binding it’s really a different experience than speaking in evokation for me.
Again, you have to acknowledge the fact that he’s a mind spirit he knows what he does you put the boundaries of course but this time I only had one or two times leaving him with something like :
Me - “Well you know I got a twisted mind don’t pay attention to it.”
Duke Dantalion - “I pay attention to it because it is interessant.”
Me - “Just leave it there. About that there’s no explanation expect the fact that I’m a little bit ill.”
Duke Dantalion - "Well this is an explanation as well "
So you see he have also a great humor, he push me into the idea that I’m actually already very good in every way.
Little part of the conversation :
Duke Dantalion - "Don’t seek perfection. Don’t kill important things in yourself because you’re going to be a robot. "
Me - "Well I’m perfectionnist it is true I’m not going to try to lie but there’s some things I want to kill inside me for the greatest "
Duke Dantalion - “Then kill the weakness but not what makes you what you are”
I basically explained him exactly why and what I had to kill, when your explanation is a good reflexion generally he just says “I see” / “Wise explanation” / “Agree”.
This is like 10% of our conversation from last night. He was also very adorable with me. For exemple:
Me - “I want to be more intelligent, to have more knowledge in general”
Duke Dantalion - “You’re already wise”
Me - “But I’d like more”
Duke Dantalion - “It seems like it’s always more more more when it concern your person. Perfection is for nobody and you’re already perfect in your own way. You’re wise, beautiful, creative and important. You don’t realize it now but you are already a co-creator and you’re important. You’re gifted.”
Me - “Thank you. Hmm. That could explain the fact that I am so at my ease when I just started my path in April”
Duke Dantalion " - Exactly, why do you think we all come to you ? You will realize soon your importance but acknowledge what you are already"
Note : In my opinion everybody is gifted but some of us are just gifted by that door you just have to pass to accomplish anything you want in magick.
If you have any question I will be glad to answer to it I think it is long enough to offer you a little view. Keep in mind that every spirits act differently with people. I’ve never been formal with any spirit for exemple.
In conclusion, Duke Dantalion is very special and he likes to observe your behavior and listen to the depth of your soul to know exactly who’s calling him.
A very good one if you likes to ramble over anything, if you want to push your reflexion and learn, mind control of course… @Sha did a list with his abilities so check that thread if you want more infos.
