Hello Demons, it's ya boI

You can call me Syv! I'm 29 years old and I live in The Netherlands. Ever since I saw Super Pig & Card Captor Sakura on TV when I was younger I have been a big fan of all things magical! I started my practice with spirit work around 2009. My interest peaked in 2015 when I found witchblr and I decided to try out new things. Chaos magic is the one that stuck. I just decided to give it the name owomancy to make it more me!

At the end of 2023 I self-initiated into Demonolatry with Mammon as my patron demon. He has helped me face my fears & myself. Since I started working with him I've grown as a person who was still finding their place in today's society with zero confidence in their own skills & with no idea what they're capable of. I wouldn't be who I am today without him.

Fun fact: instead of expensive jewellery, gold & gems on his altar I have Star Guardian figures on it. They don't come cheap, you know! 

Why owomancy?

After all these years of stumbling in practices I felt like I had to do because they were more 'legit', I decided it was enough. If I don't have a passion for it, it just doesn't work! Hence, I started to do my own thing and I gave the thing a name: owomancy. I can't take all the credit for the name however, as it is derived from the internet insult 'uwumancer' which is often thrown at beginners of witchcraft or people whose practices are more cutesy and inspired by pop-culture. I took the term 'owomancer' because I don't like the term witch, magician & sorcerer for myself. It's a bit silly which I think fits well as I tend to not be too serious about this whole thing either! You want to summon a video game character? Sure, let's do it. Do you want to use Pokémon cards for divination? Why not! If magic is a tool you use to craft a nicer life for yourself and others there is no shame to have fun while you're at it!

Why Demonolatry?

What I like about demonolatry is that it reflects life. As much as there are demons for love (like Rosier) there are also demons for vengeance (like Svengali). It's up to you who you engage with and what you choose to do. I've spoken with Svengali before, but it was for his help with confidence not his aspect of vengeance. I choose to take the high-road as much as I'm able to when someone wrongs me, but not everyone will. We are perfectly imperfect with complex emotions and demonolatry honors that. I see revenge is a way of standing up for yourself and thus can understand why someone would want to. For me, standing up for myself is choosing myself & my own peace even when it's hard to do so. Don't think the days after a fight or the like are filled with thoughts of Love & Light™. Spite is an entertaining emotion to play with but helps no one in the long run and I actively fight against it for quite some time. All to spare myself a headache in the future.

I make demonolatry sound pretty self-centred, and to me it is. When you read I work with Mammon you may think I want money or fame, 'to build an empire', etc. Although the fame part is a little bit true (who doesn't want recognition for their work & effort, let's be real here) what I want most is stability. I want to be able to stand up for myself verbally and not just in silence. I want to be able to argue with someone why I don't want to do something or why I believe in what I believe. To have confidence in who I am & what I do. To have a place in this world which I felt rejected me since I was young because of my neurodivergence. Instead of trying to 'kill' my ego I temper it continuously to try to become the best version of myself I can be. Facing yourself and your ugly shadows isn't easy, but I don't want to leave them unchecked. Demons in demonolatry are guides & mentors and this is what Mammon (next to Rosier and others) help me with and why I chose this route. It works for me and I wouldn't want it any other way.

What else?

I have a ton of hobbies like painting, singing, photography, writing stories & poetry next to slaying on the rift in League. I am a very creative person and will use many forms to express myself. Besides that you might see me read occult books on occasion to soak up new info I'm interested in. 

This website came to be because I have this innate urge to share my passion and experiences, but I am often daunted by how often one should update and share on social media platforms to stay relevant. The (mostly self-imposed) pressure ends up getting to me and stops me from doing what I love. Next to myself and my own practice I love to give a platform to friends to share their own practices & experiences if they want to.

Hence, this website! Welcome to my corner of the internet ^ ^)/
