Avoid the Demonic Disciple Trap
Drawing on demonic entities to help you reach your goals indentures yourself to them, and is to be avoided at all costs. Sometimes people don’t even realize they’re doing it, and those who do often don’t understand the consequences until it’s too late.
Once you die, in such an arrangement, you become their slave and must do their bidding, according to Manly P. Hall, author of The Secret Teachings of All Ages.
“First. The visible universe has an invisible counterpart, the higher planes of which are peopled by good and beautiful spirits; the lower planes, dark and foreboding, are the habitation of evil spirits and demons under the leadership of the Fallen Angel and his ten Princes.”
“Second. By means of the secret processes of ceremonial magic it is possible to contact these invisible creatures and gain their help in some human undertaking. Good spirits willingly lend their assistance to any worthy enterprise, but the evil spirits serve only those who live to pervert and destroy.”
“Third. It is possible to make contracts with spirits whereby the magician becomes for a stipulated time the master of an elemental being.”
“Fourth. True black magic is performed with the aid of a demoniacal spirit, who serves the sorcerer for the length of his earthly life, with the understanding that after death the magician shall become the servant of his own demon.”
“For this reason a black magician will go to inconceivable ends to prolong his physical life, since there is nothing for him beyond the grave...a man will barter his eternal soul for temporal power...in its various branches the black art includes nearly all forms of ceremonial magic, necromancy, witchcraft, sorcery, and vampirism…”
“Though the demonism of the Middle Ages seems to have disappeared, there is abundant evidence that in many forms of modern thought--especially the so-called ‘prosperity’ psychology, ‘will-power-building’ metaphysics, and systems of ‘high pressure’ salesmanship...”
For obvious reasons, short-term earthly gain through the help of demonic elementals isn’t worth selling your soul, but we believe it’s entirely safe to strive toward gaining abundance and whatever else you want as long as you don’t hurt anyone or yourself, and you don’t employ demonic energies to assist you.
How to Avoid This Trap
You must be very careful to only ask for help from positive other-dimensional energies, those of the Light. Whenever you’re in need of help, and we believe help is always available to you within your predestined framework, make sure to ask for help from God (or however you refer to the higher power) or “guides, masters, and helpers of the Light.” Our Spiritual Detox audio can help you keep your energy clean, and avoid harmful entities.
Aside from demonic other-dimensional energies, in our view there exist “guides” on the other side that don’t offer absolute truths and wisdom, and many have strong prejudices. Sometimes these entities are simply disincarnated souls who have not yet gone to the Light after their physical body died, so they may not be any wiser than you. There are also troublemaker entities who enjoy causing problems.
Any insight you receive that sounds biased Or that feels negative, be wary. Also, a very possible sign of a mischievous, or even dark and harmful other-dimensional spirit is one that claims to be someone famous, such as a deceased celebrity.
So go ahead and ask for assistance with your worthy goals from God or guides and Angels of the Light if you feel you need help. In addition, focusing on being grounded and centered and meditating regularly will give you plenty of valuable guidance from within, without having to ruin your soul through partnering with demonic energies.
