To be fair, these spirits and deities have always been there. You are honestly diving into what Self truly is.
Deities and spirits are fragments of yourself. Reflections. You look in the mirror often and even though there is a similar image always looking back, a change of countenance, a hairstyle, a mood, a thought can change what is reflected. There are many aspects that create self. So many, they deserved to be understood.
Navigating "SELF" is navigating the Spirit Realm. Each pitstop a new entity that must be explored. The "Self is not your body. Your body is a dense aspect of this physical realm that contains and harnesses your Soul. Your true self can be expressed through the body. The body is not the Soul, but it can be used to reflect the Soul.
1.CREATING YOUR OWN DEITIES
WHO IS CREATING THE DEITY?
So when dealing with spirits, you have to find where your intent is stemming from. You find your intent from your perspective, and once you find the intent, creating the deities will be that much easier. The intent behind the deity will be what drives and directs the deity to do its purpose.
Why does perspective matter when dealing with spirits and their realms?
Perspective matters because in order to deal with the spirit realm, you have to deal in spirit. So addressing your spiritual creations in the eyes or perspective of “a human” or something not up to par with the spirits you are conjuring will only end in frustration.
So some key things to know and will involve inner work is having an understanding of who YOU really are.
When you know your name, you know where to work from. You will easily be able to tell who is doing the creating, and which eyes you are looking through and creating with.
You find your own reflection in your creation, just as god created Adam in his own image, or your parents created YOU. You end up not only creating a realm for them to reside in but also giving them a purpose, You begin to give them authority in this realm, a role, substance to keep going, the more you carve out the details, the more you breath life into them.
Some key sources to address your spirits from a place other than HUMAN may be your Honest Self ( your higher and lower self) , Your Ego, Shadow Self, etc. When you can identify where your intent is coming from, you will be able to address the creation from a stance of authority, and power and not from a place of begging and weakness.
One thing with spirits, is that if you address them as the lesser party, they will treat you as such. You want to address them as the creator, not the created. You will need to deal with them in respect, not worship. Addressing a spirit from a lesser stance will inevitably be an agreement you already placed on yourself. Or rather a spell you placed on yourself. The agreement being that you are lesser than the spirits you wish the work with. This will be to your detriment unless you plan to worship spirits not work with them IN SPIRIT!
HOW DO YOU FEED INTO YOUR DEITIES AND GIVE IT A SOURCE OF POWER?
You create a source of power by making it a ritual. For example, if your deity was Zarabunda (of all that is iron ) You could make everything you do with iron as a ritual for him like taking iron tablets, iron your clothes, use a cast iron for cooking. Be creative in everything you do. That's how you develop relationships with spirits, because ultimately you are nurturing the relationship.
Just as you fed into the relationship as creator, your reflection will do the same. Give & Take. You are dealing with reflections of yourself. If thought is energy, then setting up your mind to work with your deities is feeding into them. When feeding into your deities, use concentrated thought. Go into the realm you have created and work with them there.
Now to be fair, your deities where always there. They just needed to be conjured or called upon. Its like walking towards your mirror. The reflection was always there, but you had to look. You have to look and see the multiple different fragments of yourself. Find those sacred jewel fragments and put them together. Identify their power and allow it to work with you.
*** DONT BE FOOLISH, SPIRITS ARE NOT HUMANS. THEY DO NOT CARRY THE SAME MORALS, OR IDEAS. DOESNT MEAN THEY HAVE NO MORALS OR IDEAS, BUT ITS FOLLY TO CONSIDER THEM TO BE THE SAME AS HUMANS!***
HOW TO CREATE A FOUNDATION/REALM
A foundation is what you choose to stand on. Its your TRUTH and is as stable as you make it. Think of the 3 little pigs. They all had a foundation to stand on, but what really held up to the test was that of stable foundation. It sure wasn't that bullshit straw and stick house. Your house wont stand if you build it off of bullshit lies, and bullshit avoidance of self.
Standing on your creation is the same as understanding that you are God, Adam, and the Devil. The Way, The Truth, and the Life! For example, one of my foundations/realms is made from VULNERABILITY. It is my strength, and my weakness. When I saw that in myself, I was able to create a realm where my weakness in my physical, was my strength in my spiritual.
What helped me create my foundation was to go backwards. This physical isn't the beginning, but the end ,or the manifestation. So going back to the roots is essentially creating life from death.
So in order to find out where my manifestations and projections where stemming from, I had to go to my root. Ultimately you want to find what you are ALREADY projecting. Whatever is projecting is doing a great job already, so why not use it to your benefit?
Going to the root does a couple things…
1. It puts a crack into your façade and breaks in. It shows you what you truly are and isn't sweet about it for your benefit. You reach a point of utter honesty. The roots are not as pretty as the petals. Yet its still the same flower.
2. Gives you a chance to be honest and accept what you find in yourself, because here is the kicker, YOUR REALM WAS ALREADY THERE….except you haven't accepted what you have done with it so far. You where always creating within it, but you where not that attentive or addressing it with the wrong eyes so to speak.
BEWARE means to Be Aware! When you find something within yourself that you are afraid to investigate or dive deeper into, that's where you need to look the hardest. Don't be afraid to dive in to your own self. You will do best to Be Aware of what it is. Its your Realm, correct?
In order to create my realm, I had to find my weakness. When I found my weakness, I found my Strength. With that, I had my duality. I found something to stand on. My Strength.
