Gargoyle as a guardian.

Postby Enki » Fri Dec 07, 2018 7:48 pm

Greetings

I have been planning on which bindings I wanted to order and for protection I was wondering if Gargoyles were the best choice since they're naturally known for protecting against evil. Is there a better choice or is a gargoyle the way to go?

Thank you.

I know gargoyles have a great reputation.

My own basic team is a fylgia, three volkh and four courtwind angels, and I've been very happy with them. But I've still got a gargoyle-shaped opening. :)

I'd say at a minimum get a volkh anyway. The maintenance is pretty much nonexistent.

So long as you are adding protection, though, you can't be headed in the wrong direction.

They are a good choice for beginners, or those wanting to dip their toes into the Dark Arts with a spirit that is (generally) on the lighter side of the spectrum, or anyone who just generally wants a good spirit for protection that is unquestioningly loyal and fierce against negative influences and unbounds in your life.

Mine is very wise and has taught lessons to me in the past about organic and Earthen energies and using the power of the Earth to cleanse, and is very grounding, as well.

I don't think you could go wrong with getting one. (:

Also, there isn't really a "best" spirit for anything, there is only whichever spirits are best for YOU and which resonate with YOU best at that point in time. So if you feel called to get a gargoyle, then I say go for it. But if you feel like a different spirit is better for you, then that is the better way to go.

The good thing about Gargoyles is that they are very obedient, they are, for me, are a neutral yet powerful forces of energy. They are not as scary and as intimidating as Wraiths or other protctive DA spirits. Gargoyles are easy to deal with, perfect for beginners.

8 years ago, when I started keeping spirits/entities, my first protective spirit was a Volkh... next, I went with 4 Courtwind Angels, a couple of Gargoyles, and a wraith. Over the years, as I grew accustomed to the darker energies, I added, literally, an army of protective beings... ranging from Watchers, Fallen Angels, Vampires, Lighter-natured demons (but, only from a very trusted conjurer), and mainly dark elves and fae. Black dragons, hydra, and Norse Berserkers are in the mix.
But, really.... almost any of the beings you have bound to you will have your back. Some are warriors, some are magickal, some are beings who can put up a scary persona and scare off any would-be attackers.
The main thing is to go with what you feel comfortable with at the current moment. As time goes by, your comfort level will change, and there will be others you will want to add to your family.


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