Our own AI rendition of a servitor taking shape on the ethereal plane.
So you want to create a servitor?
Well you’ve come to the right person. Servitors are my main area of expertise. I’ve made dozens of them at this point, and at this moment in time I have eleven servitors running tasks for me at this moment.
But what is a servitor?
A servitor is a local spirit created by the practitioner to serve a specific purpose. They are a semi-autonomous thoughtform created by the magician through various means in order to perform a series of tasks.
I tend to look at them as psychological entities created by branching and sectioning off parts of my consciousness. They do not exist prior to being created, and they exist solely to serve their preprogrammed purpose, whether it be to acquire you money or to bring luck or to protect you from outside forces, whatever. The uses for servitors are endless, as is the number of ways in which one can be made.
The relationship between servitor and practitioner can be viewed as a symbiotic relationship where the magician allows an outside entity to rent space in his or her consciousness, and in return the servitor performs a preprogrammed task for the magician.
The creation phase
Today, I am going to be showing you how I create my servitors. The process is simple, and only requires a pen and paper (or a word processor/note app, cheers for technomancy!). For this article I will be building a new servitor, one to bring about good luck and prosperity.
After I know what purpose or task my servitor will have, I come up with a name. This servitor is going to be named Tychi because that’s the Greek word for luck, and I incorporate a lot of Greek elements into my practice. You can also strengthen your servitor by associating things with it such as deities, runes, symbols, planets, or any other correspondences you believe may be in line with the task of the servitor. Tychi is associated with Jupiter and the rune Fehu, which I will include in his Statement of Intent.
Secondly, decide what you want it to look like. This makes it easier to visualize your servitor as a living being, something that actually exists within the ethereal spirit world. For Tychi, I’m going to say he is a blue Chinese dragon made of electricity that flows through power lines like a ghost.
You can get as creative as you want here. You’re creating your own entity, it’s fun to make them unique and otherworldly. The more detail and personality you give them, the more life-like they’re going to seem. This not only makes them easier to visualize, it also means you’ll be more likely to see success in them completing their assignment.
Next up you’re going to want to figure out where it resides, or what it’s anchored to. This can be anything from a crystal to a part of your body to a necklace. This spirit is going to reside within that item. Think of it like a genie in a bottle.
Tychi is going to be anchored to the power lines, specifically connected to my house, but later I’ll add in his statement of intent – for him to follow me freely through any power line.
Next up is this power source. It’s important to note that all servitors need to be fed through attention, you must occasionally pay attention to them by calling them and simply acknowledging their existence. I’m going to add a little extra oomph to Tychi and say he also draws power from the electricity in the power lines he resides in.
Next up you’re going to draw a sigil representing your servitor. Use whatever your favorite method for creating sigils is, there’s no wrong answer here. Here’s the one I did for Tychi.
This sigil is a symbolic representation of your servitor for your subconscious to use. After the creation of the sigil, it’s time to write the Statement of Intent.
This is a straightforward, written out directive of what your servitor is and what it’s purpose is. It’s important to touch on all points of your servitor in the Statement of Intent so that your servitor knows exactly what it was made for.
Statement of Intent for Tychi:
“Your name is Tychi. You are a blue Chinese dragon who lives in the powerlines and feeds off electricity. Your purpose is to bring good luck, fortune, and prosperity to those who call upon you. You may do this through whichever means you may find as long as no harm is done.
You are magically bound to my will and must come to me when called. You are constantly within my presence, and are always working your magick around me.
You are associated with the planet Jupiter and the rune Fehu, and this serves to strengthen your power. Should I have to, your existence may be ended by me stating “Tychi is declared dead on (date/time) and writing it in your file.”
The activation phase
Now that you have who and what your servitor is, it’s time to bring them forth into reality. As with all magick, there’s a number of ways to do this, but I tend to go with the following ritual:
First do a banishing of your choosing. Light four candles in a small circle and place the servitor’s sigil in the middle of them. Sit in front of this set up cross-legged with your servitor’s description in front of you. Meditate until you feel yourself to be in a calm state.
Visualize your servitor in your mind’s eye. Imagine as many details as you can, and actually see a blue Chinese dragon floating around you and the set up of candles. Imagine your servitor as a living being with a sole purpose and try to actually feel its presence.
Do this until it seems right, usually around ten to fifteen minutes. Once you’ve properly brought forth your servitor, read it’s Statement of Intent out loud to it so it knows what its purpose is.
And there you have it, you’ve created the servitor.
The next phase is upkeep. Since servitors require attention to be kept alive, it’s a must that you acknowledge their presence every once in a while. This is especially important if your servitor has successfully performed its task. You’re essentially telling it “Good job”, and this reinforces their programming to keep performing their task(s).
Feel free to evoke Tychi all you want. I specifically made him for this article to bring about good luck and fortune to the readers of The Occult Living Room, something we can all use a little more of. Hopefully this article was useful to you, and you can get to work on creating your own servitors. I’ve experienced life changing effects from working with them and recommend at least dabbling with servitors if you are an aspiring occultist.
Until next time,
