The Basilisk is the "King of the Serpents". All serpents acknowledge, respect and adhere to the Basilisk's power. The presence of a Basilisk in your collection means that any entity born of, related to or associated with reptiles or snakes will be under the guardianship and protection of the Basilisk.
There is no qualm about the power of the Basilisk. When on earth they were capable of devastating human life within seconds. Capable of endurance beyond human comprehension as well as running across water so quickly it would make your head spin they command the earth and liquid terrain.
You can feel the power of the Basilisk when you hold them. You don't have to wear this to have the effects of the Basilisk. You can wear it, put it on a chain, keep it in your purse or pocket, keep it on your nightstand, on a string around your bedpost... anywhere as long as the Basilisk is in your care you will feel their presence.
They are capable as manifesting as orbs and streaks of light, sometimes you can hear this kind of sliding noise - especially across carpeted areas, see lengthy, slender shadows, and they can manifest in true form. This past summer we had a surge of garden snakes in our yard that usually sees one or two and during the surge of garden snakes my husband's Basilisk was incredibly active! They can also manifest in true form in your dreams so don't take the appearance of snakes in your dreams as nightmares... it's not, it is your Basilisk contacting you.
They bring to you powers of Mind Control, Persuasion and Influence. They open the channels for you to get into other peoples and creatures minds. You will find that you can impress your will and want on others and they will side with you on things you want to do. This is great for anyone... at home, at work, at school... You will be able to persuade others to do your will and wishes, get your way and they will follow your lead... and you can influence the outcomes in situations when multiple people are involved to your favor! These powers are the most powerful tools the Basilisk owns and what they used to rule the entities of earth and their serpent races when on earth!
My husband is quite connected to his Basilisk. They are one of the few entities who don't take long to bond with when you have the secret... and you can find the secret in the Encyclopedia article linked below.

Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Basilisk is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality there is a way to keep your Basilisk under control if you feel it is becoming too energetic, too strong in manifestation or too "in your face". Bind the vessel tightly with string to subdue the Basilisk and get them to calm down. Only use this technique if you feel the spirit is becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.Tags: Basilisk, magick snake, mythological snake, snake legends
