I want to tell you a little story here about a kind of ‘glitch’ I have experienced at certain periods. Lets say that I’m working with various spirits from a certain era (or even grimoire if you like) and I obtained my requests through these spirits and then I abandon these in favour of something completely different.
Now because I have changed to different spiritual beings, or gone in a somewhat different direction I tend to start seeing flaws in the gains, which I have received from the previous pantheon! This however only seems to affect the recent physical results and not the distance results that I got from older rituals. I also still tend to be able to make use of any knowledge obtained through the previous demons or spirits I was using.
This phenomena has occurred twice in my magical journey, its like a kind of ‘psychic short circuit’ that appears whenever I jump ship? You could also say that I have broken that line of belief I set up so the end results are also starting to crumble now. I get the impression that I have acted in an ungrateful manner and the spirits have seen this as an act of disrespect…….so they have cancelled their help.
Anton Levey said something that ran pretty close to the nature of this in the ‘Satanic Bible’ years ago. He said that if you should ever disbelief the power of magic after using it, then you would lose everything you have gained through it.
Has anyone else here on BALG experienced something similar to this, or is it just my overactive imagination making this happen due to the loyalty I exercise in my own relationships. I am very faithful and loyal to my friends and lovers over the years, so this might also tend to be mirrored in my magical connections I have with the spirits.
