So, I’m 16 and live with my family. I want to practice with my demon Az (no, he’s not related to the demon by the same name). We’ve been interested in setting up an altar, mostly for him but if I also start working closely with other entities. I don’t want my family to know, since my parents were raised Christian. Their beliefs currently are unknown to me, so I’m wary.
I plan on hiding it in the bottom drawer of my dresser, since I don’t use it and it’s big. I can’t have an open flame in my room, but I do own an oil diffuser I use every now and again. I have Az’s sigil and I know the things he likes, some of which are salty foods like saltines. I don’t want to risk leaving food out because I hate bugs, so I eat the food for him in a way, and he gets enjoyment out of it. He may like sweets too but I’m not sure yet. I have a “candle”, but it’s just a glorified piece of plastic with an LED in it that probably won’t fit in the drawer.
I really want to practice and make an altar, but keep it hidden, and I have some other candidate spots in my room but they’re out in the open. I could try covering them, though. Any advice is greatly appreciated, and any tips on what I can put on the altar would be great. Thank you.
