With Cat Eyes
The old magickians said Marbas first appeared to them as a large cat . . possibly a lion.
S. L. MacGregor Mathers says Marbas is a shapeshifter that can appear as either lion or man. "He possesses knowledge
of secrets, causes diseases and cures them, and has great knowledge in the mechanical arts."
Aaron C. Donahue knows why this very large spirit was mistaken for a big cat. He said the demon hovered over
him as he drew it, remaining totally still but focusing directly on Aaron's back as he drew its image through the science of remote viewing.
"It had the feel of a cat," Aaron later said. "It appears still once formed and does not waver for the entire
session," he later wrote in his brief analysis.
Seagrave suggests that the powers of Marbas to alter its shape may extend to an ability to cause others around
him to look different. "He also may change the shape of men by his touch so that they become as wolves or bears."
Johann Weyer in Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, says Marbas also goes by the name Barbas. He is a "great president,
and appeareth in the forme of a mightie lion; but at the commandement of a conjuror commeth up in the likenes of a man and
answereth fullie as touching anie thing which is hidden or secret . . . "
Weyer continues on to say that Marbas brings on disease, but also cures disease. "He promoteth (wisdom) and the
knowledge of mechanicall arts, or handicrafts." His talents also include changing men into "other shapes."
The concept of shapeshifting is not foreign to this writer. A few years ago, while my wife and I lived among
the Navajo, Hopi and Apache Tribes of Arizona, we actually met a woman who practiced the black arts. We believe she came to
visit us one windy day in that desert, while in the midst of a severe sand storm. The dogs were putting up a terrible fuss
and when my wife looked out, she saw what looked like a large wolf among them. As she watched the animal ran around the house
and disappeared behind an abandoned hogan that was no longer in use and boarded up.
I grabbed my rifle and we went out to look. There we saw the wolf tracks still clearly imprinted in the blowing
sand, but when the tracks reached the other side of the hogan they turned into moccasin tracks. This person had small feet,
like those of a woman. The tracks led right to the wooden wall of the hogan and disappeared. This person seemed to have passed
through the solid wall and was hiding inside that boarded up building.
My wife suggested that I return to the house and get our camera and try to capture the prints on film. She
realized that nobody was going to believe such a story as this. The sand was blowing so quickly, within minutes the prints
Since seeing evidence that some humans can do this, the story that this cat-like alien can change form at will
is not unbelievable to me. I suspect the picture on Aaron's web site is an example of how this spirit naturally appears.
While the pupils of its eyes are slit, like those of a cat, the form of its body is not unlike the image of many
of the other Goetian spirits. I am convinced that they are all aliens.
