Daemonolatry Goetia (S Connolly)
Seek Paimon to understand alchemy. Seek Paimon for creative pursuits or to design a plan of action. Paimon can also help in emotional understanding.
The Ninth Spirit in this Order is Paimon, a Great King, and very obedient unto LUCIFER. He appears in the form of a man sitting upon a’ dromedary with a most glorious crown upon his head. Before him march an host of Spirits, like men with trumpets and cymbals, and all other sorts of musical instruments. He has a great voice, and roars at his first coming, and his speech is such that the Magician will not be able to understand him unless compelled. He can teach all arts and sciences, and other secret things. He can reveal to you what the Earth is, and what holds it up in the Waters; and what mind is, and where it is; or any other thing you may desire to know. He gives Dignity, and confirms the same. He binds or makes any man subject unto the Magician if he so desire it. He gives good Familiars, who can teach all arts. He is to be observed towards the West. He is of the Order of Dominations.(Dominions) He has under him 200 Legions of Spirits, and part of them are of the Order of Angels, and the other part of Potentates. Now if you call this Spirit Paimon alone, you must make him some offering; and there will attend him two Kings called LABAL and ABALIM, and also other Spirits who are of the Order of Potentates in his Host, and 25 Legions. And those Spirits who are subject unto them are not always with them unless the Magician compels them.
Luciferian Goetia (Michael Ford)
Paimon is an angel-daimon of Lucifer, whom appears as a man crowned upon a camel. This spirit is a familiar of musick, thus by invoking Paimon one may work through an avenue of self-initiation through creating musick. Paimon is a powerful Angelick King of the Witchcraft, whom has 200 Legions of spirits –half are the Orders of Angels, the others being Potentates. Paimon appears with two Spirit/Djinn – Label and Ablim who are referred to as Kings. Paimon is perhaps one of the most significant Angelick Rulers, which along with Astaroth (whom is more bestial/demonic in nature and appearance) opens the way to the “Grail” of Lucifer’s crown – the perception of “I” and the mind separate from the universe. Paimon is a higher spirit of self-initiation, who is a path maker for ones own becoming. Paimon sometimes appears as an angelick spirit with a flaming sword. His office is Guardian of the Path through Leviathan, the Guardian of the Depths and Subconscious
