I am a chaote who is studying necromancy and deathwork . This journey is very personal to me and if you do not agree with what I have to say keep it to yourself and I will respect your opinions. Death has been a big part of my life both positively and negatively. I have had family members who had left this world too early and had good experiences with darker tones of energy. If you want to hear my opinion and definition about these two practices that I mentioned above, hear they are...
Once held as a form of divination, necromancy has now been sought out for as a form of spirit work. Necromancers will ask the dead for a certain task to be done in exchange of a reward or even to tell the future or release unkown information.There are endless types of ways to work with the dead as there are numerous ways to divine with them. Some people do extravagant rituals, while some explore doing simple yet easy ways to get the job done. No matter how you do it depends on you.
Necromancy is a more broader practice than deathwork due to it being more spread out by working with spirits. While deathwork is more individual and about having a more personal relationship with death rather than the dead. It is suppose to aid one to align themselves with the death current. This could be beneficial in many ways, but also destructive. Meditation and ritual are major parts in deathwork and can help someone face their fears of death, but too much can cause depression and possibly other symptoms. As far as I know don't push yourself too far with this practice.
If you want to talk to me don't be shy. I'm not usually a social butterfly in real life, but I try my best to make friends online. Despite the stuff I said I am a very kind person so if you feel the need to reach out to me because you have a problem, dont worry because I will be there for you. I love talking about other people's beliefs and practices. Though if you're wrong about something I will point it out.
Please remember I mostly study these practices and am still a novice!!! There will be questions I can not answer!!!
