“Hail Verrine, full of green, the life is with thee, lively art thou amongst demons, and lively is the fruit of thy self, health. Happy Verrine, maker of health, dwell in your followers, now and each hour of our lives amen.” -A Healing Prayer by Catloving Demon, as recorded in Ater Votum
Verrine is a little-known demoness. While he/she is recorded in traditional demonography, very little is said of her other than that she is a “demon of health,” a “demon of impatience,” and a spirit of the wind. She is one of the nine primary infernal divinities of modern Demonolatry, which list of nine infernal divinities oringated from the Dukante Hierarchy of demonography. Said to have been from the order of thrones prior to her alleged fall/rebellion, she is a spirit of a “positive polarity” and said to be “good-natured.” She is held to be a “creation demon,” rather than a destructive one.
While traditional demonography records her as male, Verrain appeared to me as a woman made of foliage. She wore a revealing white dress and had buttefly-like wings, which wings displayed colors of blue, green, and yellow.
Verraine can increase the body’s ability to heal and recover—from sleep deprivation, for example. In addition to this, she can increase the body’s resistance to the side effects of sleep deprivation. She can empower your aura so that it converts incoming energy into blessings. Her auspices are useful for all workings intended to engender protection.
Verin represents the positive polarity of life. She can teach the witch to consecrate a garden to magnify its abundance. She can increase the witch’s ability to purify place’s spiritual atmosphere and otherwise raise sacred space. She can relieve a magickian of her impatience. She can also stir one to action. According to The Black Grimoire by T.J. Dawson, Verrain rules over “Health, Medicines, Invention” and “Herbs.”
Verrine can teach the witch to shapeshift her astral double into a bear, which is one of the harder atavisms to assume. The atavism of the bear is a very common one assumed by archangels and archdemons.
The traditional enn or magickal chant attributed to Verrain is “Elan Typan Verrine.” The chant I use to summon her is “Liftoach Pandemonium, et germinet Verraine,” which chant translates to “Open the Infernal Plane, and bring forth Verraine.” My chant has the additional effect of presencing Qliphothic (demonic-infernal) energy to raise or strengthen a sacred space.
