Gamori - Demon of Perverted Love


By James Donahue


He is identified as a duke among the demons, but old drawings of Gamori, the Fifty-Sixth Spirit of the Goetia, depict it as a beautiful female figure riding on a camel. The drawing by Sixteenth Century researcher Johann Weyer also shows a Duchess’s crown tied around the demon’s waist.


A remote viewer said he evoked Gamori a few years ago and also drew the figure of a woman. She was wearing a blue and gold covering, and a large undulating serpent was coiled around the entity’s neck and waist. An inverted crown was shown in the serpent’s mouth.


To make the RV image even spookier, there was a large hole in the place where the face should have appeared. Gamori thus appeared as a figure with a donut shaped head and no face at all. And there goes the historic old depiction of Gamori as a beautiful woman.


Yet another drawing by Collin de Planey shows this demon with a plume of feathers rising from a diadem at its forehead and cow horns that look like the two sides of a crescent moon. A veil hangs from the back of Gamori’s hair. As in the Weyer image, the demon is riding a camel.


Is there a message to be learned here? Old practitioners wrote that Gamori governs 26 legions of demons. His office is “to tell of all things, past, present and to come, and of treasures hid, and what they lie in; and to procure the love of women both young and old.”


Therein lies the warning. This spirit provokes lust in humans for knowledge, wealth, power and the flesh. Because it appears to humans as a woman it might be suggested that Gamori offers a destructive subjugation of love. She calls forth the whore for physical and financial pleasure. When she is involved, man must make distinct choices between real personal goals and prostitution.


The kind of physical “love” seen through this demon can be destructive because it lacks the purity of the all-encompassing, unconditional love of the Creator. All who submit to the powers of Gamori become caught up in the lust of the flesh and forget the cardinal rule involving love. Before we can love others, we must first learn to love ourselves.


While Gamori might help a practitioner enjoy wealth and fleshly pleasures, the rewards are shallow and payment for these services might be costly. The loss of true love would be the most destructive disaster to strike an individual’s life.
