'Familiars' Chapter


A familiar is like an ally, an agent of sorts. A spirit, that because of your connection to the force it lives in has taken an interest in you. They work on the law of sympathy, that energetic connection. No spirit is superior or inferior, and knowing your familiar is the best way to maximize your relationship. It is also a way to learn more about yourself, because you attract what you are kin to. By deliberate intent, by making something your concern, your focus attunes you to the energy. The more intent the more attunement, until it’s like standing in their world.

“The way to kill a man or a nation is to cut off his dreams, the way the whites are taking care of the Indians: killing their dreams, their magic, their familiar spirits.” William S. Burroughs
