Taken very well! wow, I will have to give that a go- maybe it is a sign of sorts. Hell, maybe Belial can have fun flopping her big ears?? Maybe there is even ‘Demon doggies’ she could hang with… now you got me thinking. I find that if she just has to wake up when i go in, but if I went straight to bed she would remain asleep there must be something going on.
You know me- you can just say it, irking me
takes quite abit more.
and I was feeling abit miffed last night- I was so close, again, and in away am wondering if it is not like the drill sgt who throws an artillery simulator at me when i am shooting to see if I can focus through it and hit the target.
Plus, Belial know how wierd I am about having certain things ‘perfect’- which has way too often been an obsticle in itself, which ironocally has prevented more success than I can understand. I have little doubt that He is going to have his shits and giggles with me for the next 2 months. Even though it is work; doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it.
[quote=“Lady Eva, post:12, topic:5031”]Please don’t take the the wrong way because I don’t wish to downplay your frustration, but I keep my pooch in the room a lot when I do evocation, unless he starts looking edgy - you can make a protective amulet, and tie it round their necks.
I have bedroom/Temple/TV/computer/home office all in one big room by choice (I had them all seperate, but that just annoyed me), and the mutt’s on the bed while I’m on the side of the room (no carpet, it puts him off walking there) where my altar and stuff is kept.
You can simply command (NOT ask, in most cases) that the spirit you evoke neither distress nor afflict your animals, and with them in a comfy bed where you want them to be, maybe in the corner, that’s one less issue.
When I learned shamanic trance, I was told the most skilled shamans in Siberia especially consider it a matter of pride to be able to remain in trance working on a healing case whilst the family’s kids are tugging on their beard or coats, and since we’re not mimicking the solemnity and anti-animalistic, anti-life atmos of a church in most cases, animals, kids etc., shouldn’t IMO rule out being able to do deep work.
I know others will disagree, and that’s cool, but for me magick is life, spirits are family (or friends, or allies) and it’s not acceptable to me to pack away my life and go do it in a seperate space.
If we start a family, that will also have to be worked in - and not factored out or isolated.
This is just my approach and I’m not saying it’s the only one or the correct one, but if these distractions, which are also people and animals you love, are causing a problem, then maybe shifting your paradigm of how to work is simpler than, y’know, shoving them into a truck and pushing it over a cliff! ;)[/quote]
