Holy !@#$%^. It worked.
1.) The ritual to contact Belial was a success. I ended up doing it on Halloween night since the veil between worlds is thinnest then according to the lore. I traced his sigil with pencil from the laptop screen, then went over the tracing with black sharpie on 6" x 6" white printer paper. I had previously bought an expensive bourbon (called Devil’s Share, no less ), as well as Dragon’s Blood stick incense. After showering to clean myself physically and spiritually, I put on a pair of black jeans and no shirt and went into my temple area around 9 PM or so. I lit my two red candles to either side of my altar, closed the door, and lit the incense, offering it up to Belial. I also poured a glass of the bourbon, offering it to Belial as well. I then sat down in my chair facing my altar and proceeded to meditate for 10-15 minutes, clearing my mind and focusing on my breathing.
Once I felt ready, I started gazing at his sigil and entering the TGS (Theta Gamma Sync). I also chanted his enn (Lirach Tasa Vefa Welhc Belial) over and over and focused with great intent to summon him forth. This phase lasted maybe 20-30 minutes, and finally I could hear a thought, resembling my own almost identically, but subtly different, say “I am here.” I then proceeded to state my desire to make the lawsuit go away with the condition that in so doing no harm would come to myself or any of my loved ones, and that in return for the speedy and satisfactory fulfillment of my desire I would sacrifice my e-cig habit to him as well as give him an online shout-out. I also offered my blood as an offering to Belial, by pricking my thumb and tracing it over the sigil. He telepathically responded with an “Okay” of agreement to the terms.
After this, I remained in the TGS state and proceeded to commune with him, the details of which I’d rather keep private for now. During this time I also kept going into hard-to-remember, almost hypnagogic/sleep states, where I’d experience weird thoughts/visions in my mind’s eye and then snap out of it. At the same time I felt an almost addicting sense of power, a good feeling of almost intoxication while in touch with his energy. I remember him saying at one point that his essence was that of Power. Finally, after 45 mins to 1 hr of this, I thanked him and said Goodbye. I blew out the candles, let the incense keep burning, and left.
After leaving my room, I went to talk with my girlfriend in order to ground myself only to discover that she was anxiously pacing outside our apartment in the cold. Apparently, she had been just fine watching TV in our living room for the fifteen minutes after the start of my ritual, but right about at the same time as I had moved from meditation to the actual summoning she had felt an incredibly strong negative rush of energy around/by her. She said it felt like something intelligent, alive, and very powerful was in the room or passing by her. It was so intense that she felt she was about to throw up, so she had to rush to leave our apartment. When she walked down the stairs outside she didn’t feel it anymore, but when she came back up to use the bathroom after waiting as long as she could, the instant she got within a certain boundary (and definitely within the apartment itself) she experienced the same rush of overwhelming energy.
After she mentioned this, I realized that I could notice an almost electric sense of vibrations or energy, concentrating in my temple area but also permeating our bedroom and some of the living room. She felt it a lot more than I did, and it went away eventually (probably 3-4 weeks before it was almost completely gone). Our cats didn’t seem to care about it or even notice, though. I kept his sigil on me or in our apartment continually from that point.
2.) The results have, as of today, manifested precisely as I had asked. The lawsuit has been completely dismissed, very unexpectedly and a little less than a week and a half before the already scheduled court date. My stress has been completely lifted and I feel free to move on without worry, thanks to Belial. And on the plus side, I can also thank him for providing the necessary motivation to kick my straggling nicotine habit!
So, thank you, Belial. You’ve helped me tremendously in terms of my material affairs, and not only that, but you’ve given me a most enticing introduction to what intentional magick is like. Thank you, and I can’t wait to work more with you.
Also, I’d like to thank @boredomkill5, @nikki, and @Lady_Eva for all their kind and thoughtful help in answering my many questions. I couldn’t have done it without y’all.
Onwards, and upwards!
