Slavic Domovoi

By Phoenix the Elder – Autumn has come, which means the return of my apprentice’s Domovoi who has a name. He always returns around mid to late Autumn, and comes to my space, not hers. This year was no different and he arrived around the third week of Autumn. In 2015 he knocked on the glass window really loud, we opened the window, spoke out loud thanking him for returning and helping, and set out his welcome back dinner, for this Autumn arrival. I have been doing this for ten years. In fact Domovoi is the only spirit / soul that I have ever let in my space.

He is respectful and benevolent by the mere fact that each year in Autumn, he asks permission to come in. Up until this year I have granted that passage. This is the last year I will let him enter because my apprentice has graduated. I do the basic things like make him a bowl of food and drink like water or coffee, I figured he is Slavic by ancestry so he would like that. 

He stays generally until spring but comes and goes during that time, and then returns to where he lives. This year was very different (2019/2020 season), he came at his usual time about two weeks ago, but I had moved to a new place. My grad. apprentice just happen to be visiting and asked if I had thought about him and I said yes, last week, she did too. So we invited him in to come and eat the dinner we prepared for both ourselves and him.

That night, while I was sleeping I woke up in the middle of the night (but not awake in my body, only my soul), I could see him eating at the table, but he wasn’t solid, he was very transparent which was new. Something collectively has changed.

This is the second time now this moon cycle I have seen a transparent dead in their soul form. First was the domovoi (a dead aspect / past life aspect of my apprentice) and a friend of mine family friend, a young man who passed away a month ago who glided past my window in the daytime and he too was very transparent. After many decades of seeing and seeing shadow, they were transparent to a point because the soul is like a cloud of energy, but I have never seen them extremely transparent like they are seen this month.

That means the shift has reached second stage now and the newly dead, dead aspects of one’s past life and demons are dissolving being pulled back to the underworld where they will remain. They will not have a choice anymore, even those shadows and demons freed from shamanic plants, pot and drug use.

So, as I was watching Domovoi get up from the kitchen table, he was then walking towards my bedroom, walking towards me and he started to grow very tall into a full size man. That was of course his true identity of him as a tall man long ago. My estimate is that where he lost that part of his man soul, he shrunk into a short domovoi. That is how it works. Same too for greys (aliens), they are the soul loss of men who have been in the military for millenniums and have soul loss. This maybe a lot to chew on, but I have ten lifetimes of experience as a shaman and collective shaman and know the mystery from experience, not knowledge.

Although the Domovoi is a very kind soul (benevolent) who is helpful, this transparency of what I saw of him changing, told me his time is near to leave this plane, maybe he came to say goodbye. Domovios, Nesse, Tomten, Leprechauns etc are all the same, just different countries name them different things. They are just aspects of a human souls from long ago and they like to hang out with their reincarnated soul that they belong to. The realm of the dead, dead aspects and newly dead humans is a very, very complex mystery. But like all of them on this planet, its time for them to go and they can no longer bother, hinder or help the living.

I could tell his time was over by his transparency and seeing him as a short domovoi growing tall into his full human size, and with the shift he will have to leave this plane (between the veils) and move onto to the permanent place, the underworld. There are only two: Heaven or Hell. Heave in one and Hell has millions of layers of vibration according to a humans past life karma, paid, unpaid or palatially paid.

My ten year apprentice’s domovoi will now have to leave even though he hardly has any karma left this lifetime, he had to serve to burn off extra karma, even in his consciousness as a soul and he did. He is a benevolent soul not spirit, there are no spirits in human forms, spirit is elemental, weather etc.) He will be pulled out of this realm and return to his resting place.


He is a good Domovoi, very helpful, a benevolent daemon (not demon, two different parts of the soul). He also has come into both mine and my apprentices dreams at night and sometimes help that way, he also walks between the worlds, but will not risk coming fulling into the physical world unless its an old forest where he is protected. This Domovoi who belongs to my apprentice, is the only soul not living that I ever let into my space this lifetime.

When we first met him ten years ago, I just figured he was Slavic and from Russian, but that is not true, he is actually a Mongolian Domovoi which makes him even more interesting.

The words “daemon and daemon” are Latinized spellings of the Greek δαίμων (daimôn), a reference to the deamons of the ancient world, from Greek mythology, Hellenistic religions and Philosophy.  The word itself is used in many traditions around the world where “Deamons” are good and benevolent “supernatural beings between mortals and nature, such as inferior divinities or wandering light astral bodies.”

Since the internet age, everyone changes the originals of dark and light and that is depending upon the whim of the person, especially young people. This older folk tradition differs from the Judeo-Christian usage of demon, which is a “malignant” soul hat can seduce, afflict, make you sick with their karmic energy or possess humans are the types that I bind and send back to the underworld if they come into my space or my clients or apprentices. In this sense, the word demon is solely an evil soul.

Deamons on the other hand, can be referred to as trickster bad or are good. In my Slavic tradition (Polish), the Slavic and Balkan people tend to retain their older folklore traditions (pre-religious traditions) along side of their modern religions) and thus, here is a story from a Polish website on the subject.


Traditional Stories of Domovoi’s in the Home
The world within perception, is filled with folk magic and it’s beliefs in the existence of various kinds of supernatural powers and representatives of these forces, or daemons and that they exist and I validate that having lots of experience.

According to old folk belief, the daemons, a positive (but some can be slightly annoying or negative) and the demon, a negative all the way to pure evil, have had impact on our human existence and therefore one is sought to exercise caution and avoided contact with the negative ones. Many of the demonic creatures were related to the area of the house and farms or large gardens.

It was widely believed at home in the presence of small black human creature called Bożętami, they enter through cracks into the room and help the residents of this home like a Domovoi. First and foremost, Bozet helped women in their sleep mode and the rocking or soothing of children. The hostess left at home with the sleeping child, leaves some millet on the ground with the words: “Bozet, Bozet let everyone remembers about children, about the hut, and here you have millet”.

Another home was a familiar demon also known as Inkluzem. Initially regarded as a caring and benevolent spirit who lives under the threshold of the house, helping protect against the demon (devils), who serves the man by providing him with wealth and prosperity. The best way to get familiar with the Inkluzem is by lifting the first egg of black hen (called the kogucim egg). During this time, we are not allowed to pray, go to church or to use salt.

From the egg hatched a familiar as a black cat, a rooster or a bird. Nieosolonymi feed was familiar dishes, otherwise got angry and smashed the barrel of grain or Kiczki tore the roof sheathing. Familiar was nagging companion – occurred under your skin not only inmates but also to people passing by the house (for example throwing stones at them). He could also cause illness and even death. Getting rid of the familiar is not easy and required the intervention of a shaman, medicine woman (whisperer) or a priest.

In folk traditions its not kind to say that this shadow creature belongs or is a family or neighbors shadow, so all types of creature names were invented instead, especially when religions forbid such relationships with the nature of human or nature spirits. Of course this is how we used to heal our real shadow issues by confronting them directly or indirectly through magical folklore, which is much easier and less fearful.

Visiting-the-domovoiAnother demonic being haunted house and worrying has been the bane of residents also called gnieciuchem or gniotkiem. It came at night and suffocating sleeping people (nightmares). Also caused inertia in the legs and hands (restless leg syndrome). The bane of getting into the house through different kinds of slots or keyholes, just the same way he could get out. Clogging the hole, which enabled came to see this demon. It was said that great wealth could win the one who broke his nightmares. To protect against attack before bedtime cross oneself many different folk traditions would and still are used, especially in Romania.

The last report of a deamon was the Mamun in 1895, near Trzebniow, Silesia region, Poland – According to local folklore and eyewitness reports a strange group of humanoid creatures was said to inhabit the area around this village. The creatures or humanoids resembled the mythological Cyclopes and are called “Mamun” by the local peasants.

They were reportedly much taller than humans and well built. They were also hairy and wore primitive clothing. But the main feature distinguishing a “Mamun” from a human was the fact that the Mamuns were a one-eyed creatures. They looked ugly and seemed primitive in nature but never harmed the local people and didn’t approach their households.

These creatures reportedly lived in caves and wooded shacks inside the dense forests. One type as some villagers worked the fields in the vicinity of the forest a local woman had brought her children with her and had placed her youngest child in a cradle on a hammock closed to the forest.

When the child (a girl) fell asleep the mother went to the fields to work. After a while a strange inhuman wailing moan was heard coming from the area where the woman had left her child sleeping, the moan definitely did not resemble a sound made by a crying toddler.

The mother of the girl ran to the cradle and when she reached the hammock she began to scream in terror. As others gathered they could see that instead of her daughter in her place there was a naked deformed, one-eye toddler, the creature was weeping and wailing loudly in a strange voice. It was reported that the Mamun brought the human child back to her mother. Later the strange humanoid creatures were exterminated by the locals.

Sometimes the use of a changeling was placed on a pile of manure or wynoszono on the road outside the village and whipped with a birch tree branch and a cradle is sprinkled with holy water, and in the corner of the bed a bunch of herbs consecrated or blessed.

Mamuny could haunt young children and to prevent this from happening, rags were together to create two small dolls (called mamunami) and hang them upside down on the door and the window. At midnight when Mamun showed up, the ukręcała dolls head was shown making the Mamuny leave without harm.
