Asmodai; A Powerful King
When Aaron C. Donahue evoked and then drew Asmodai in a remote viewing session, there was a pleasant
Instead of the dark and scowling figure portrayed by ancient magickians who encountered this mighty
spirit, Aaron's drawing brought forth a complex entity that looked bright and even happy. You can see his work at: http://ummo.cc/webpage107.html.
Like most kings from the Goetian forces, there is nothing simple about Asmodai's form. Donahue drew
the three heads, that of a bull, a man and a ram, although the face of the man was so slow to form, the remote viewing session
was completed before the spirit was fully materialized. Thus the face has an almost skeletal appearance, lacking the
flesh that the face would have.
Donahue's drawing also captures the lance, the suggestion of webbed feet, and the serpent's tail
that is said to be part of Asmodai's form. There is a large serpent's head showing directly under the demon which may
explain why the old masters thought he sat upon a dragon. Also surprising is the set of bull horns directly over the three
This spirit king is so powerful that he was feared, and always highly respected by all who dared
to evoke him. It was said that he can spit fire from his mouth.
Old writings say that Asmodai is a master of mind control. He has the power to turn those who serve
him into beasts for short periods if they ask. He can locate treasure, heal, and start wars. This mighty spirit also
is an alchemist, beast master, mechanician, merchant and navigator.
Other names for this spirit in Hebrew mythology are Asmodeos, Asmodeius, Asmoday, and Ashmedai.
He is believed to be the undisputed and infinitely evil king of the demons. He was said to be the son of Naamah and the husband
of Lilith although that might be disputed.
The Hebraic name Ashmedai, which means destroyer or evil spirit, is believed to have been taken
from the Persian words Aesham-dev or Aeshma, the demon of concupiscence and wrath. In the Testament of Solomon, Asmodeus reveals
himself as the demon pledged to plot against the newly wedded.
Whether he did all of these evil deeds is not known. What is clear, however, is that Asmodai is
a spirit well known to many ancient cultures. He is a powerful entity and his presence in the world once again is going
to be felt by everybody.
