What is a daimon?

I’ve been experiencing some new and unusual energy patterns lately. Nothing coherent to blog about as I walk through this.

This word keeps coming up the past few days. I’m not looking it up yet. I have a sneaking suspicion you will lead me to my answer. What is a daimon? What significance does the word have for you?

Google rarely has the answer that resonates with me anyway. πŸ˜‰

Big hugs!

    Is he related to Matt Daimon? or like a diamond without the d? This sounds like a word Amanda would use. I don’t have the answer, but have seen it somewhere. Hope you dig the etymology humor.

    love ya,

      Haha! I love etymology humor.

      I’ve got no clue. I’m working on releasing the urge to look it up right now. There must be some reason Spirit wanted me to ask.

      Big hugs, Litebeing!

        Intuitively decided to reach out to you today because I missed you and lo and behold my Spirit is dead on! πŸ™‚

        My “Break from Blogging” post was about answering the call of the Daimon!

        I think of the Daimon as the guide to the soul and the mark of true genius. The Daimon guides our lives in spite of our exploitive ego’s best efforts at control, and can be considered as solely responsible for helping us to fulfill our “destiny.” I include several quotes about the Daimon in my most recent post, so def check it out. Another great source for writing on the Daimon is Monika’s blog at Symbolreader.net, she and lovely Debra of ptero9.com both frequently discuss the topic. Jung had a run in with his Daimon during his confrontation with the unconscious.

        Personally, I think Daimon and Kundalini energy are linked in totality; if you think of Kundalini as Libido and Libido as the Drive for Life; (after all Sex is Life, right? Shiva/Shakti create the universe in their union) then you may consider that your Daimon is what drives you to fulfill your “Life.”

        Love you Sarah xoxo

        PS. I have missed you but I will have you know, I am bringing new meaning to the phrase “Riding the Dragon”!!!!!!!

        ((((((HUGS YOU))))))

        Hi Amanda! It works just like Linda said. Maybe she has a magic genie lamp? πŸ™‚

        I’m so glad to see you. (And I don’t see a new post on your blog. Am I missing something?)

        My response to your comment is twofold:
        1. You commented at 11:11 a.m. my time. πŸ™‚
        2. Oh shit.

        And once I remembered my manners, thank you. For the information, the references and the new contacts who I will check out once I’m back on my feet. This combined with a message I received from a Facebook friend who was not able to post are giving me new brain melt. It’s been a (more-than-usual-for-me) freaky week.

        I can’t wait to hear more when/if you’re moved to. Riding the dragon, eh? (It does sound like an interesting ride.)

        Love you,

      Aw shucks! It’s like when someone’s says, Don’t think of pink elephants!

      It’s a good mental exercise at least. I’ll hold out until at least tomorrow unless someone posts. (I know, I’m soooo patient, right?) haha!

    I have never been patient when it comes to learning something new! Here is what resonated with me. From wikipedia: “Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and deities, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the deities themselves”
    But more interesting, (from wikipedia again): “Daimon is not so much a type of quasi-divine being, according to Burkert, but rather a non-personified β€œpeculiar mode” of their activity.”
    Now you will have to tell us what you think. Both of Matt Damon and your own daimon(s)!

      Thanks, Esther!

      Yeah, I’m always asking for help being patient. Then I get what I ask for and realize that I wasn’t ready yet. Nooooo!!! Haha.

      Hmm….this has given me a lot to think about. Thank you. I have a few videos that I need to get out soon and now I think this may be related to the giants I met this week and signs of shape shifting and the current energy shifts. I’ve been feeling that stuff Lisa Gawlas has been talking about. I’m having really off energy signatures in my three lower chakras and got some interesting input at a reiki share I attended Tuesday night. I think it freaked one of them out. Ever feel like a walking science experiment? (I think you do. Haha!)

      Big hugs!

      Oh and if Matt Damon shows up, well I hope he likes kombucha!

      1. Esther

        Lol! Love it all! Sounds super fascinating! I have just gotten mostly over blowing my nose 5000 times earlier this week. So I guess that means that the shift was all in my head! 😜
        P.s. Freaking people out means you made an impression about something they needed to see. Whether they follow up on it….not your problem! Hehee she wasn’t there by accident and neither were you. Besides I always liked freeky peeps!

    This sort of leads me into Philip Pullman and the ‘His Dark Materials’ trilogy: each character has a daemon, usually taking the form of an animal (though they can shape-shift almost at will) which completes them. To be separated from one’s daemon is a torture of the severest degree. Interesting concept and one I would like to play with.

    1. sayyestoeverything Post author

      Hmmm…now I will have to look up this trilogy. I’m not familiar with it.

      I did get a lot out of this question. I had a few offline comments as well which were interesting. I had no idea so much was associated with this word! Frederick, anything you do with this concept will be amazing I’m sure! Your writing is……I don’t even have words!

      Big hugs, Frederick!

      1. frederick anderson

        Yes, do get a look at the books if you can, the film of the first volume was very average, I’m afraid. Thanks once again for complimenting my writing, and I look forward to your next post!
