Review: Create a Servitor
In the summer of 2015, the e-book Create a Servitor: How to create a servitor and use the power of thought forms by Damon Thompson was available for free via Amazon for Kindle for a short period of time. I downloaded it on a whim, and didn’t read it until months later. Servitors are a bit more advanced than my current level, and I haven’t had any experience working with that complexity level.
My initial impressions are generally positive. I’ve read about servitors and/or tulpas from other sources, and Damon Thompson gives a clear, concise explanation of servitors from the get-go. (The main difference between servitors and tulpas is that tulpas have their own sentience. Servitors do not.) So that puts this e-book ahead of several physical publications that mention the terms, but not what they are. Thompson goes into directions for creating servitors, and does address several topics related to the process of creation. Destruction and feeding the servitor are both detailed—if either topic is relevant to you.
Create a Servitor is an easy read, and short enough for a casual afternoon. The language is clear, and unambiguous. Honestly, I feel like this reads more like a DIY instruction manual instead of the stereotypical occult text. I also mean that in the best way possible. It’s a refreshing break from reading texts that dedicate a lot of page real-estate creating a pseudo-mystic atmosphere with flowery language.
Even though a beginner could easily understand this e-book, I would not recommend it for a beginner. The techniques used in this book aren’t difficult to understand, but I think they require a decent background in energy manipulation and visualization to follow through. This looks exactly like the sort of thing I would have tried when I was younger, and grown frustrated with the lack of progress. Don’t have confidence in your magic, experiences, or even the existence of magic? Then save this for later in your studies.
I haven’t had the chance to try out the methods Thompson explains. But, they seem consistent with what I have read. Thoughts on servitors and/or tulpas or the text? Write them in the comments below!
