The Djinn, Watchers and the Archons: A Shaman’s experience by Hank Wesselman
“J(inn): You humans are creators. We, the Jinn, cannot create but we can mimic… we can imitate… and we can affect potential outcomes, but we cannot create.
(There was a long thoughtful pause and then:)
J: Few can perceive us anymore and fewer still can bind us to their will. Now that I have told you my name great one (offered respect to me,) you can ask me to serve you, and I will.
HW: I have been called by other Jinn ‘El Kobbet’—the binder… And what qualities and abilities do you possess that might be of service to me?
(The Jinn flickered thoughtfully, then answered.)
J: I can protect you from enemies and I can inflict curses and misfortune on those who oppose you.
HW: I am constrained in my practice from inflicting harm on anyone for any reason…
(Still, I thought, this genie might come in handy if a real bad guy came along or someone threatened me of my family with harm.)
J: …Or with ill will…
(I had momentarily forgotten that the mental channel was an open one.)
HW: How about healing work?
(The Jinn’s field dimmed in intensity. His answer was startling.)
J: Who can say what is written on another person’s soul? We cannot purposefully influence their destiny without tampering with their agreement.
HW: Agreement with who…?
J: With the higher organizing intelligences…
HW: Are the Jinn below them in the spiritual hierarchy?
J: Oh yes. Some of the younger Jinn occasionally misbehave. The watchers approach them then and encourage them in more appropriate forms of expression.
HW: Who are the watchers?
J: The ones among the higher intelligences responsible for this world. We are not allowed to interfere with humans on their path although there are some who do, as well as those who function as adversaries.
(I thought about some of my recent reading and asked:
HW: Are those the ones that the Gnostikoi called the archons?
(I used the Greek term for the Gnostics.)
J: Oh… so you know about them… (The Jinn’s field brightened reflecting excitement.) The archons are not true spirits. They are mind beings, mental entities many of who were created by humans as thought-forms. Many of these function as attachments… as mental parasites.
HW: How do they do that?
J: They feed on the energy… on the attention paid to them by humans. This includes the energy generated by human belief systems. But they are not true spirits and they will cease to exist if nobody pays attention to them any more. The ones you call ‘the archons’ are those that we call ‘the deceivers,’ and like us they are not creative. But they can mimic and they can take on forms in response to human belief systems.”
