Many here on this forum claim showing mutual respect to ranking entities is simply acknowledgement of power. But by definition, reverence is the expression of having honor or deep respect for a figure in heed of worthiness. Worship, by definition, is to honor or show reverence to a spiritual entity. Magicians who align with daemonic energy tend to claim showing “mutual respect” is important yet they do not worship their entities but create energetic connections. Yet they offer many forms of gifts and energy as notions of mutual exchange. But giving attention/respect is actually giving energy – fueling the entities influence.
The thing is, I’ve had entities plainly tell me not to worship them, but instead utilize their power for mutual results. (Experience for both parties) But working with these entities will naturally align your energy with theirs, thus slowly shaping your behavior to resemble them. I’ve found this to be a constant factor very early on. To remain grounded without being overtly affected, it’s necessary to maintain energetic balance to keep your mind under your own control. So wouldn’t it be necessary to shield yourself off from these entities’ auras while meeting them? Some say that shows fear (which is said to agitate them) but I don’t really think so. It’s just consciously remaining in control of yourself.
Creating a more ideal reality is a subjective matter between varying personalities. (people) But why should we give offerings and bodily energy (our own vitality) to fuel the manifestation of that reality. At that point we willingly give subservience to the energy (spirit) driving it. We become nothing more than spiritual batteries while claiming to be powerful or “godlike” for simply having the ability to do so.
So wouldn’t it be a more potent choice to radiate energy thus aligning/molding outer reality to resemble our own energy, instead of draining one energy to fuel another reality? It’s true that energy is never created nor destroyed but always shifting. I do wonder, however, if humans are truly in control if we rely on our ability to drain energy from something to fuel something else?
