I tried looking this up on here but couldn’t find the right words to put it in the search to get a result for this specific question so if theres another source about this on here already please feel free to link me!
I always get nervous about cleansing my space or house with sage before trying to contact a demon because im about 4 going on 5 years practicing magick and what not after coming straight from a strict and brainwashed christian family (so you can just imagine the mental challenges and screwed beliefs I had to overcome from that).
So anyways, you know the stigma of if you’re house is haunted by a “demon” or if an individual is, you dont use sage because it only makes them even more pissed?
So once I started using this forum and found out that one actually can contact a demon without being harassed or getting their throat slit and killed by them (I know but thats what was instilled in me)
I started asking the question if its smart to sage at all before doing a invocation, spell, ritual, or meditation. I felt like it was just more bullshit christianity says to instill more fear into people but i have done it before and the demon still showed up. But I still just cant help to know what the answer is especially now since im going to be trying to contact and start trying to connect with Lucifer and this is a really big and exciting thing for me because i’ve recently overcome my lifelong fear of him due to my family always spewing crazy shit “he’s done” and how he will only want to hurt me and blah blah blah. So even though I dont fear him anymore and believe he can help me out alot I still want to rule out ever insulting him (or any demon at that) or anything else in that nature.
What can you guys tell me?
