Dabibu


Dabibu is the consort or shakti of Yam-Hahar. This demon-goddess is the instinct. Whereas, Yam rules within the dark adept's unconscious, Dabibu activates the desire of the unconscious.

Dabibu is s double demonic goddess representing both "fire" and "flame." Isitu, the "bitch" of "llu refers to her assoiciation to the dog and wolf, a form of the Akkadian, Assyrian, Babylonian Goddess Lamashtu, represented as "fire" signifying the rebellious, individual instinct. Isitu energizes the unconscious passions which pushes the adept to action. Isitu is seated in the Svadhisthania chakra which also corresponds to Yam-Hahar. The fiery input makes the adept ready to act.

Dabibu initiates the demonic will of the adept allowing him or her to shape and master his//her selected path or goal. This demonic goddess is both passionate and seductive since she was born of Lilith possessing Kundalini energy (representing Lilith within the double goddess) and also a beautiful woman. When becoming Isitu, also possessing Kundalini energy, she is vampyric having a wolf-like or dog-like head and grinning, cruel fangs, her Lamashtu traits.

Also from its Ugaritic roots Dabibu, dbb, is associated with "flame" and "fly" representing the spiritual instinct, passion and power of the air in regards to travel. Some believe this may pertain to astral travel. Possibly at one time Dabibu was consort to Baal-Zebub (Beelzebub). As one can see Dabibu is no maid-servant consort but actively helps achieve missions and goals and will help her devotees. A.G.H.
