I’ve decided to “reboot” my Draconian Pathworking, starting from scratch as my time has been occupied primarily by my work with Belial I haven’t done anything independent of him, so I figured starting from ground zero and completely reintroducing myself to the current would be the best course of action.
A/N: I am using Asenath Mason’s Draconian Ritual Book, but some of the practices and techniques will be used and adapted to best fit my style of work, so rather than following a workbook, I’m creating a more unique style of working with the energies and spirits included within.
Tonight’s work was meant to begin with Lucifer solely as an initiator, but during my evocation and meditation on the draconian sigil, I made for the workings I now feel that I’ve contacted the current as a whole versus one entity.
I was pulled into a deep state of unconsciousness, and into a darkness where I could feel the force of several entities surrounding me, the energy was intense and hot, causing me to sweat physically as I sat there in darkness just waiting.
I then began falling, I could hear numerous overlapping voices speaking to me at once until I fell at the feet of something or someone, alone sat large bipedal draconian figure dressed in regal armor at a throne, his energy was like a massive pressure and as he spoke my entire form vibrated, my heart racing as I could only lie there looking up at him.
“You seek to rejoin us? You must commit, and embrace the pain of change and the anguish of evolution. We will tear you limb from limb every time until you emerge perfect…your path will be filled with ash and flame, and none but you can extinguish them and forge your path anew.”
I began falling again, this time into a horde of small creatures that bit and tore away at me, devouring all that remained until a blue orb rose from the remains, but even that was devoured by a larger drake. From inside of the beast I heard the voice again.
“Will you embrace us, or will you run again? Should you accept your path, know that pain, anger, sorrow, and unimaginable beauty await you, but should you run, never turn to us again…what will you choose?” - A bit harsh, but understandable. He didn’t seem very bullshit tolerant.
I chose to embrace them, and from the heat and thick substance of the drakes stomach, my hand rose, before my own draconian form erupted from and consumed the beast.
“Very good. Call upon me for five days, and we shall see how strong your resolve truly is.”
I came too with tears in my eyes and sweating intensely. It was hard to breathe for a while, but once I gathered my thoughts I trusted that I made the right decision.
Looking back, I could feel their anger. It was like I’d betrayed them and had just waltzed back in like everything was fine, and so I was punished or at least put back into the place of a child in their eyes. The entity that spoke wasn’t Lucifer I could tell that much. The back of my mind screams ‘Typhon’ but I don’t know if I can put much stock into that, whoever it was he was pissed but willing to teach me all the same.
This was the most intense experience I’ve had in a long while, so to me, it shows that I’m back on the right path.
During this evocation, I used the Triangle of Manifestation I had Azazel help me make, along with a Crocodile skull fossil I bought - typically for fish tank decoration, but I figured a croc skull was the closest I’d get to draconian other than a snake and it all seemed to work really well, so I’m impressed. I’ll probably gather some more things over time, but for now, I feel it’ll do.
I think I’ll take a break for now - still pretty lightheaded, and I need a drink. I’m looking forward to seeing how this plays out, I know it won’t be easy but I’m all about a challenge, so let’s see how this goes.
Also: Don’t know what the obsession is with me being eaten or thrown into some pit of damnation, but I’d appreciate it if it didn’t happen every time I started a new project. Then again being devoured by something in the draconian workings is a common trope, so I shouldn’t be too surprised.
I’m thinking that “Call upon me for five days” May actually be the current itself? If that makes sense. To realign me with the energies within, maybe? I’m tempted to ask Azazel, but I’ve committed so I may just roll with the punches and see what comes of it.
That’s all I’ve got, 5 days of work and a duffle bag full of questions. I’ll probably start back with the basic energy techniques the book offers, but other than that, I’ll be playing it by ear.
