Having recently discovered Marchosias is my guardian demon, I bought a special offering candle (jasmine, topped with labradorite) and a talisman and made contact last night.
If, like me, you lose count while chanting enns, there are some useful videos on YouTube. I put on the talisman, lit the candle, and hit play on the enn video.
About halfway through, the candle flamed sputtered and flickered wildly. The room got even darker - so dark the shadows created by the candle flame disappeared. (It was after midnight, and the blackout curtains were closed, which rules out other light sources.)
Marquis Marchosias didn’t appear as a full-body manifestation, but I felt the presence - like a protective older brother. I asked for his help in getting my life into better shape (I know I can do so much more) and left the candle to burn for a bit. (He was very patient when my surviving cat interrupted. She does that a LOT.)
It came to me to wear the talisman to bed (or maybe Marchosias suggested it?). I proceeded to conk right out and stay asleep until the cat woke me up wanting food, then I went back to bed, conked back out, and stayed asleep for hours. I’m a VERY light sleeper, wake up a lot, and toss and turn. Last night I didn’t even move, as far as I can tell. For the first time in over two years, I woke up feeling rested.
I already like where this is going.
