I was recently asked to write down some particulars regarding Demons. There are a few tenets that exist within the entire Demon Class, but many demons have individual traits not shared by others and until one encounters each demon there are things that just cannot be shared. There are millions of different classifications of the Dark and to limit one’s understanding to just a few seems negligent to me, as a teacher.
So, the task I was asked to complete was an unpleasant one for me, as often the teaching of this vocation is done in personal and is driven by the student’s gifts and abilities. If I write things down, they are often then viewed as “sacred” or “sacrosanct” – which is often a huge inhibitor to the student’s learning process. Each student must eventually switch to learning from me to my teacher to continue to learn and to be successful at this Work – and trust in oneself is incredibly important for this to be done successfully, not relying upon what someone wrote down.
I have little good opinion for those teachers who demand that students return to them instead of following their personal Guidance and Spirit Teachers. It is the job of the teacher to set the student on the path – NOT to dictate the path for the student to take. Lord knows my teachers don’t do that for me and they are always here for me, even when I plateau out.
So, every now and again on this site I will post some tidbits, shall we say, about demons here for my students and those in the future to review. Not the encyclopedic version they would like, but some general information about specific demon classes that will be helpful to those in need.
