Elegant Demon King Paimon
It is not surprising that the great demonic king Paimon made such an elegant entrance into Aaron's
temple when he was summoned.
Aaron said he first heard trumpets, then was surrounded by an entourage of spiritual forces before
the king made his appearance.
You must remember that Aaron C. Donahue evoked this powerful demon in the midst of a private remote
viewing session in his temple, an old abandoned Masonic Hall. Donahue was quite alone to face Paimon and his battery of demonic
He regards Paimon as one of, if not the most powerful and dangerous of the Goetian Spirits encountered
Notice that this king is drawn as if walking on a special path, or walkway laid down just for his
feet. He is robbed in fine bright red garments, with a white, embroidered collar that some believe might be decorated with
A thin beard hangs from the chin of this almost human face. On Paimon's head rests a magnificent
crown that seems to radiate light, possibly from the gems embedded in it, or possibly energy. A serpent is twined through
the points of the crown.
Notice the two dark, triangular objects on both sides of this spirit. Donahue writes that they are
alien craft occupied by the supporting demonic kings Labal and Abalim who often appear with Paiman. That he stands above
them, rather than allow himself to appear below them, clearly shows the imprint of rank this spirit instills upon himself.
Indeed, being in the presence of Paiman is next to standing before Lucifer.
S. L. MacGregor Mathers writes that "Once of the Order of Dominations, Paimon is the Ninth Spirit
listed in the Goetia, who is obedient to Lucifer." He is so powerful he rules over 200 legions of demons. When summoned,
"he appears in human form with a crown on his head and is accompanied by hosts of spirits playing music. If offerings are
made to him, two kings named Labal and Abalim will accompany him, along with others in the Order of Potentates in his Host
and 25 legions."
Mathers also notes that Paimon "gives and confirms dignity."
Among the Jewish rabbis, Paimon also is called Ozazl, or Azazel, a name in the Old Testament Book
of Leviticus that refers to one of the Chief Demons. In Leviticus, the name meant "scape-goat," or a sacrificial goat that
was sent by Aaron, the chief priest, off into the wilderness to carry away the iniquities of the people.
Interesting irony that the man who summons this powerful Goetian Spirit is also named Aaron. Paimon
is known among the magickians as a very difficult demon to summon. Over the years, very few mystics have done it successfully.
Johann Wier wrote that Paimon "sitteth on a beast called a dromedarie, which is a swift runner,
and weareth a glorious crowne." It was Wier's belief that the arrogance expressed by Paimon was much like that of Lucifer,
which brought about the fall of these two powerful angels. But that is reverse Christian thinking, injected into the minds
of the writers by angelic whispers.
This beast, described as a swift runner, is undoubtedly a triangular flying craft. Since the ancients
could not imagine this kind of mechanical technology, their best way of explaining it would be to call it a horse, bear, or
some other kind of animal on which Paimon rides.
Paimon is one spirit the angels never wanted to see released from Solomon's brass bowl. He is a
natural enemy of the angels and will work diligently to help drive them from the face of this planet.
He also has some other interesting jobs to do. As indicated above, he will be working to restore
human dignity, which was lost a long time ago to the ravages of big business, corporate greed, and the worship of money.
And Paimon will, indeed, carry away the inequities of mankind. But it will not be done in the way
the ancient Hebrew rabbis thought, or imagined.
