[quote=“Flame, post:5, topic:9481”]Guarantee for success exist, and it is you. For instance, a lot of people desire wealth but (not less than) 99% of them don’t deserve it. To get something what you want, you will have to work for it, there is no way to skip something and manifest it instantly without having setup for manifestation of that desire.
To explain it a bit more. If you want to work with Lucifer (not just him, many other spirits behave in same or similar way) you have to be ready for challenges. If you don’t like challenges (not talking about you directly) then magick and working with that kind of spirits is not for you at all. Every fool have some desire but only some of them are capable of understanding and have setup to go for something more and ascent into something greater.
Now regard that term “evil”… such thing does not exist at all, it is just a term that we (beings from this earth) made to express something what is bad for some person or group of people, from their point of view. Also I wouldn’t say that Lucifer has a 'habit" to do that but instead he do it on purpose to test people. Personally, my mind can’t understand how people don’t get that. It is so simple to put yourself in his point of view. So, if you have powers and some “random” person ask you to do something for them out of nowhere… you would do what they “commanded you” without testing them? I think that this will answer so many things that you have in your mind from that point of view, all you have to do is to put yourself there and answer(s) will come to you.
I can’t really say what he wants exactly since it depends on each individual. For instance, if you desire power and to become something greater then one of many things that you should do is to be loyal to him. He does not force you into that but it is just something what you both have to agree with.
Since human beings understand better when we talk about money, I will give you some example that will explain you why being loyal to some spirit is important and also why spirits are willing to spend their “time” and energy with some people.
(Classic human point of view)
Look at yourself as investor with a lot of money. You are “seeking” for other people that have nice ideas (desires) that can give nice profit. So that person comes to you and ask you if you are willing to invest some of your money into their idea and at the end you should have some benefits from it as well. Be it becoming a business partner with that person, earning money of it etc.
(Point of view from spiritual world)
Now, all what I said above just replace terms “money” with “energy/power” and term “business partner” with “ally”. And you will get answer on that question.
Now, what happens if you refuse to do something what spirit told you? Well, let’s say that spirit may not manifest what you desired. Usually what spirits may ask for (if you ask for some big thing such as power, success, wealth etc) to give them blood offering. Reason for it is because blood is like some sort of power-fuel in our world and it is part of our race. So, spirit will literally get your blood in exchange for their powers, from their world.
However, I think that spirits may “curse” you if you make like some sort of pact with them or some long-term desire and they manifest you something but you don’t give them what you offered them in that agreement.
So they can try to destroy what they manifested for you or whatever is it. But usually they will first come and try to remind you of it, and then if you refuse (to give what you agreed for) you should be ready to face their FREE-WILL.
Well, I guess you got my point there.
Does it always have to bind you for your entire life? Can’t it be a single exchange of favors and be done with it? “I gave you this thing and you gave me something else in return. Now let us never meet again.”
