I genuinely appreciate the responses.
Yes, I confess I do have a open portal within an mirrored Armoire in my home, a crossroad of the Living and the Dead/ Daemonic if you will - with a small handful of regular residents. However, with my home as a safe house of the spiritual - it does come with some strong restrictions.
Malevolence is a Dark Pneuma skill I appreciate in my spiritual allies, and I direct it accordingly when offered. My belief has been that Power seeks to be used, but no one likes to be called only when another “needs” something.
However, to reside here one has to earn their keep and we all have chores to do. Some keep the area clear of rodents (human or otherwise), some conceal my lab and library from prying eyes, some enjoy controlling who has a key that reliably works the doors. One seems to like being protective of my person. All are warned in advance that protection of my person and life is a priority or eviction is assured. Overall it is a peaceful existence.
While I typically doubted the banishing’s you mention as the “sole cause” of the phenomena of deterioration I mention, I concede that this may be the primary factor in play.
As I think on it now… I rarely ever have feelings of fear. Other than unexpected or unwanted visitors, it is an energy that the Daemonic will not find in any real abundance in my home, so feeding off of this is not really an option.
Thus, perhaps the physical deterioration to produce the energy of pain is? Everything needs to feed at some level.
Other than a ritual sacrifice of Blood and the pain itself at the moment of an offering prior to a Sorcery Event- I had not considered this rather obvious clue before now. (It feels right as I contemplate that possibility.)
If so - the “Me Time” via a spiritual retreat suggestion may be a valuable vacation as well. The Necromantic Simon Exorcism and the Square of Healing is worth seriously considering and I honestly appreciate it.
Questions that come to mind…
a) What other “Protective Measures” do you use? and…
b) Do Angels such as Raphael willingly work healing with LHP participants such as myself? Is the Daemonic such Marbas a better choice?
c) Is it even possible to provide a source of “feeding” for the Daemonic without the need for fear, pain or ritual sacrifice of a 3rd party?
Beginning to see that leaving a portal open non stop in my home, is likened unto burning a candle at both ends continuously. If so, it is steep, but a fair price that I grudgingly admit can no longer afford.
(After I wrote this I considered not posting it, as I realized the conversation had spawned some solid answers in my mind and was not exactly complimentary ones - however, BALG is for me a place to share information and learn, thus I will post hoping that the experiences I have had will offer others the same as I enjoy here - unfettered access to truth and hard won lessons. This Phenomena of Physical Deterioration via is very real and does not cast a complimentary light on the myself or victims of it - perhaps that is why so little specific information is readily available. Not discussing it only assures it will continue needlessly.)
