(Man-Tee-Core)

They are creatures whose body is a lion, with a human head, three rows of sharp teeth, voice like a trumpet and they can shoot their poisonous spines to kill or paralyze their victims. They can provide a medieval energy level of protection and can provide protection for spirits as well. They have ancient wisdom that can only be derived by owning a Manticore.

Associations can be used to create a closer connection with the entity. By recognizing their associations with the Earth and Universe you can use any combination of these tools to create treats, rituals, and bonding exercises between you.

You can purchase candles, incense, cones, oils, sprays, etc scented with the Scent, Herb, or Foliage they are associated with. You can purchase statuary, paintings, prints, textiles, etc with the Color, Animal, or Foliage they are associated with and keep them in your home where the entity will see them.

To boost their presence and give them a natural feeding of Earthen core energy you can buy raw, polished or cut specimens of the Gemstone they are associated with. Place the gemstones where you keep their vessel or wear the jewelry with the gemstones when you wear the vessel.

To have peak results it is best to meditate, perform rituals, invocations or spells for the entity on the Weekday they are associated with. The Month they are associated with is a block of time to celebrate and show your appreciation for your entity!

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 Manticore is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality there is a way to keep your Manticores under control if you feel it is becoming too energetic, too strong in manifestation or too "in your face". Place the vessel of the Manticore near salted water or on top of salted water on a plate or flat surface for at least 2 hours, they become subdued and submissive. If the Manitcore is bound directly to your spirit place a bowl of salted water by your bedside overnight. Only use this technique if you feel the Manticore 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.

===============================================

THE FEARSOME BEAST THE STRUCK TERROR INTO THE HEARTS OF EVEN THE MOST COURAGEOUS WARRIOR. THEY ARE DEPICTED AS RUTHLESS, MERCILESS MURDERERS. BUT, IS THAT THE TRUTH?

WELL, TERRIFYING THEY CERTAINLY WOULD BE IF YOU ENCOUNTERED ONE WHILE YOU'RE OUT FOR YOUR MORNING CONSTITUTIONAL, BUT AS SPIRITS THEY ARE MERELY INTIMIDATING. THEY ARE ON THE DARKER SIDE OF THE SCALE, THEY AREN'T YOUR WARM & FUZZY SNUGGLER, BUT THEY ARE DEVOTED & LOYAL TO THEIR KEEPER. THEY CAN BE TERRITORIAL, THEY DO WORK WELL WITH PROTECTIVE SPIRITS, & THEY CAN BE A SOURCE OF INTIMIDATING SECURITY TO MALICIOUS SEEKING UNBOUNDS.

THEY ALSO POSSESS INCREDIBLE WISDOM & THEY CAN IMPART ANCIENT WISDOM ON THEIR KEEPERS. THEY ARE CLOSELY GUARDED IN THEIR INTERACTIONS & THEY ARE SELECTIVE IN WHOM THEY CHOOSE TO BE WITH. FOR THIS REASON IT CAN TAKE A LITTLE LONGER TO FIND A MATCH WITH A MANTICORE THAN SOME OTHER SPIRITS.

THEY ARE GREAT FOR KEEPERS WHO ARE REALLY INTERESTED IN THE DARK ARTS BECAUSE THEY BRING TO THE TABLE ASPECTS FEW OTHERS CAN.


WISHES FOR YOUR DELIGHT,

They sound great, I foresee a manticore joining my family sometime!


Think you've seen it all? Think again. Outside those doors, we might see anything. We could find new worlds, terrifying monsters, impossible things. And if you come with me... nothing will ever be the same again!

Will they help protect me from the demons that have bothered me since I was a small child?

I was kinda wondering the same thing except dealing with my second husband (deceased).. He's already talked his way past my crew twice. I unloaded on them the second time.. I think they figured out I was highly ticked off LOL but one can never have to much protection. Have to think about this one, don't seem like it would put up with any bs let alone let anything sweet talk it's way in.

These guys ROCK and KICK ARSE!

I have 4 in my keep. They not only don't take crap from anyone or anything... but, have a somewhat "gentler" side in that they are great teachers who offer amazing words of wisdom. At least they show that side to me, but when someone else is around, the tough guy attitude takes over.
:U


I am ME.... and that is that!

Human head with lion body reminds me of a Sphynx. What are the main differences between a Manticore and a Sphynx?

Just a wee bump, as this thread has dropped waaaay down and the question above might get lost.
