do you want them to continue keeping a great deal of yourself?
if so, perhaps 'reformatting' them toward other, only somewhat
related purposes would be the proper option.

you could ask the implements what they want if you are in a
quandry about it.

I know you said that you don't want to some things, but I'm doing
to suggest what I understand to be your range of options which
come to mind:

	* destroy these objects through loss (throw them into a
	  crevasse, running water, into a crossroad, etc.),
	  disintegration (crushing, burning, rending, etc.),
	  distancing (bequeathal, donation, gift, etc.), or sale.

	* remove the original intention of the objects through
	  reformatting, banishing, or purification.

	* add to the original intention by generalizing,
	  complexity, or accumulation.

	* accept the objects as they are, but deal with the
	  demons -- befriending, negotiation, banishment, etc.

	* accept both objects and their demons, and fortify
	  yourself so as to resist any coercive influence.

>Any suggestions?

I would recommend selling the items and using the money for items 
of comparable type but different linkages. I would also work on
your defenses and your relationships with demons. as long as
you have enemies and demons in your universe, then you are at
risk and must bolster your strength (through discipline, battery,
and alliance) so as to keep from vulnerability.

the best path is Agape, as Simon Iff has advocated, but if you
can't manage that, Thelema is your best recourse.

blessed beast!
