Hi guys! Per my introduction post, I’m a beginner to this path (I’ve done lots of reading, but admittedly have next to no practical experience, mostly due to my own anxiety!), and my main interest is in the realm of spiritual companions. I’m in the process of practicing meditation to work on my astral senses right now, but am a bit stuck on where to go from there. My current goal is to get myself a Black Dog (think something like the Barghest, not your neighbourhood Lab!) but I’m unsure how to accomplish this goal. When I was browsing for information before I found the forum, I kept coming up with websites that sold spirits, but I would prefer to learn how to acquire my own spirit. You know yourself, “teach a man to fish” and all that!
So, having said that, how does one go about summoning or working with these types of spirits? I am still a bit nervous and not feeling terribly confident with my skill level right now (hence my astral senses practicing!) but I’d love to get some reading and information going right now so that I can feel more prepared when the time comes. I’m looking to use the spirit as a sort of companion/familiar type of thing - I’d like to use it for personal protection, perhaps some revenge work, and all-around spiritual “friend”, if that helps at all!
Thank you very much in advance.
