@Lady_Eva Very interesting reading this especially as I voted for the opposite.
In my case I’ve studied psychology as well as the occult, I tend to see the hypothetical clowns of the Goetia as manifestations of not only one’s own subconscious beliefs but also wishful thinking too.
In other words most people will often see, hear and feel what they expect to in many occult practices. Whether they realise this fact or not? Its all to do with our individual psychology, life experiences and the way our brain is wired.
However in my own magickal practice I quite often see even the goddess that Ive worked with for years in multiple different forms, different locations and sometimes her voice sounds different at times too.
The same when I am contacted by the dead ever since I was a young child. The same thing. When I can actually see them they often look different, sound different, feel different and even smell different.
So that’s why I voted the way I did and believe we often see what we expect to. Along with the human collective unconscious playing a huge part from the works of Carl Jung. Most of us usually see what our own psyche itself projects to us and then we believe it to be true, but is it?
That’s why its taken me so many years of study and magickal practice to truly differentiate between fanciful thinking or actual reality whether from thhs realm or the next.
There is far more that I could say about this topic. But am so tired and am using my mobile to write this atm.
Hope your all having a great week!
