“Why study demonology?” is a question I get asked frequently, so I thought I would take a moment to describe my personal reasons for devoting time and energy to the study of the demonic in their many forms.
And before I begin, here is the disclaimer:
These are my personal views, and I am not here to debate them… and no one persona has all the answers (myself included).
I have personally always had an interest in all sides of spirituality. When I am told that I should stay as far away from Lucifer as possible because of x,y, or z.. my natural curiosity gets piqued and I want to understand why I am to stay away from this being or entity. I also want to understand what their purpose is, and why they exist. If there is a reason for everything, what is their reason/purpose? Some will immediately jump into long diatribes as to the evil the demonic present, but I do not feel that it is that simple. We are also seeing an influx in interest due to a growing amount of movies, tv programs, books and this interest generates energy towards the creation of new myths, ideas and gives life to these forms.
The study of demonology is not for everyone. One of the cautions with studying this field is that we do on some level open ourselves up to their energy when we venture down the road of study. As we study them, they study us. Having appropriate shielding, psychic protection work, and daily cleansing is recommend. We have to approach this type of study with respect, and my personal goal is not to prove or disprove existence, but to understand why they exist. Different cultures will describe the purpose of these beings in different ways, seeing the common threads that run through culture/religion/and society help us to paint a much fuller picture of who and what they are.
As an intuitive consultant it is also my job to be able to help people where they are on their path. Sometimes the roads we are on brings us into contact with the beings and the more I know the more of service I can be to those in need. I’ve had to perform exorcism, banishment/clearing
There are not many people who would venture into the dark. It requires a special understanding of self, but also and openness and respect for what you might find along the way. I’ve seen some pretty terrifying things in my studies, but have also had my perceptions and personal beliefs shifted because of what I have learned on this road. I am currently working on a book about demonology, and will be doing a series of posts over the next couple of weeks on my personal beliefs, theories, and understanding.

One thought on “Why Study Demonology?”
This entry literally had me holding my breath while reading. As someone who has experienced the darker side of spirituality (and it was beyond my control and certainly beyond understanding), I just feel so much fear when people talk about opening themselves up to it at all…even just for the purposes of examining it.
Do you feel that sometimes we open ourselves up to it without even knowing? Do certain events, choices, or personalities open us up to demons? What leaves us vulnerable?
I do not struggle with demons anymore, but I did in the past, and I have no idea what might have opened me up to that type of negativity. Life events? Something I did? I often worry that it will happen again and I’ll not know why or what allowed it.
