Daemonic manifestation has turned out to be quite different to what I first believed all those
years ago. Muttering strange languages while sacrificing the obligatory virgin on a stone alter in the hope that some smokey horned (and sometimes winged) demon would make itself present or alternatively or trying out some of the spells from Simons Necronomicon in attempts to conjure some tentacly Chthonic or possibly Chtulhu himself are far from the truth.
In my experience, daemonic manifestation is far more subtle. Suddenly finding something you have been looking to purchase after not being able to find it for many years. Being heavily into the fighting arts, I often look to Kimaris (Cimejies) for advice, for as it says in the Goetia, “..a goodly warrior riding a black horse, and possesses the abilities of locating lost or hidden treasures, teaching trivium (grammar, logic and rhetoric) and making a man into a warrior of his own likeness” to help me in my fighting skills. Not only have I seen my fear slowly diminish and my fighting skills improve, but my rhetoric (important in my job) has also improved, and for that I thank Kimaris.
Saying that, I still very much enjoy delving into my copy of the Necronomicon – the spells are most interesting, and it makes good company with Maksim Hul. I have been ‘exploring’ the Necronomicon now for many years, but have not yet managed to summon anything tentacly into the corner of my bedroom.
It should be pointed that sacrificing virgins is not only illegal but also the waste of a good woman and is hence not recommended.
This is my first blog entry, so many apologies if it didn’t live up to what you were expecting.
