GOETIA SUCCUBUS DAKINI DAEMONICON
The term Goetia is derived from the Greek, which means to ‘Howl,’ as a shaman would do when to howl out the barbarous names of the spirits to conjure, while accessing ecstatic trance. Basically, the term Goetia refers to the practice of Shamanism, which doesn’t have anything to do with evoking malign Demons dancing around a Devil, apart from that of a horned shaman conjuring up spirits, who had been demonised by the Abrahamic trinity of patriarchal faiths.
The practice of shamanism has nothing whatsoever to do with any particular religious doctrine; hence, it cannot be classified as a religion. Shamanistic practice is primarily to do with a system of techniques, which enables the practitioner to access an altered state of consciousness, so that he/she can explore inner space, where the spirits exist as a reality.
For example; a shaman would be adept at accessing a lucid dream, within which, conscious contact can be made with the spirits. A lucid dream can be otherwise seen as being similar to a ‘virtual reality,’ which has been created by your ‘computer’ brain, and said spirits are akin to ‘software programs,’ with whom you can consciously interact with as individual (Tulpa) characters.
Your nervous system cannot tell the difference between a real or a vividly imagined event; this is more so the case, when to experience a vivid lucid dream.
This neurological fact was explored by shamans, who were well aware that the more intense a lucid dream is, the more probable it would affect, not only the psyche of the shaman in order to experience an expansion of consciousness but also affecting the body, for healing purposes.
Hence, the sexual impulse was internalised in order to induce as well as empower lucid dreaming, which required an erotic focus, such as a (Tulpa) dream lover to conjure.
In Tibetan dream Yoga, a female dream lover would be called a Dakini, which in medieval Europe would be otherwise termed as a Succubus.
The above is a general summary of the Goetia; Dakini Daemonicon, which investigates shamanic lucid dream conjurations of Succubae. The book takes a modern look at these techniques and more besides of shamanic exploration:
