King of Many Heads
The old magickians described Balam as a demon that "appears with a serpent's tail, flaming eyes, and three heads: a bull, a man, and a ram. He rides a bear and carries a goshawk."
That image is difficult to imagine. It was even more difficult for the old artists to draw, since the image I found fails to show more than one head on the human-like figure riding the bear.
Enter contemporary magickian and remote viewer Aaron C. Donahue. Donahue evoked this powerful spirit recently in his haunted temple and then, through the power of remote viewing, drew Balam as he really looks.
Behold, his picture, taken from Donahue's web page at:, shows a coiled serpent with many heads of animals and human faces peering from the center of the coil. But there is more. The spirit seems to be positioned on something I perceive as a large, crystalline platform. Perhaps he is in a ship. Another craft is visible above his head, marking him as alien like all the other demons.
Remember that Balam is a powerful king. "Balan can tell of past/present/future events, teaches cunning, finesse, and the easy way to see without being seen," writes Collin de Plancy.
Donahue said Balam's specialty is to "make men seem invisible."
