Well, here’s an interesting I can’t seem to find on here, so I’m going to ask if anyone here ever did any of these spells in the book, more specifically the one on page 407, and according to the page, this is the instruction that the page gives.
Whoever wishes to obtain for themselves something desired should examine this chapter of the work, and see how easily it can be fulfilled. Beforehand you must obtain a lapwing, and when you wish to operate, you
should extract its blood and carefully preserve it in a glass vessel, closing it
so that no air or impurities can enter. And when you wish to operate, go to
a secret wood with a bright sword in your right hand, and when entering
you should remember, you should arrive (?),begin to write on virgin
parchment with the above-mentioned blood: Bethala I in us (?) I suspensu
suspensus in ethera super ea enpeogidum pamelon anguis norius Egrippusi fons florisses de sede Baldachison saporisi Araarastano.
These are names of the necromantic art.
Afterwards rise to your feet, and make a squared circle as shown below, with the
same sword held in your hand, and standing in the middle of the circle, say the words
you have written two or three or four times, toward the east, as the time of the Moon
might require. When that has been spoken, you will immediately see a fair soldier
sitting on a horse, carrying a hawk on his hand. And he will say to you, quid vis quid
petis, cur vocastii me paratus ad omnia respondere et voluntatem tuam ad implere
[ “What do you wish? What do you desire? Why have you called me? I am ready to
answer all things and fulfil your wishes.”]
But avert your eyes from him, as though with indignation, and say nothing to
him, and then he will immediately depart. You should rest for a little while in the
middle of the circle, while he is departing.
Then rise again to your feet and face the north, and recite Bethalani etc. as before.
And immediately a second soldier will appear to you, even more fair than the first,
and more distinguished, on a horse, carrying a hawk like the first, and he will also speak like the first, but do not speak to him, but do everything as you did with the
first. And he too will soon depart.
For a third time, rise to your feet and say as before, Bethalani etc. facing west, and
soon a third soldier will appear to you, more noble and fair that the previous two, on
a horse, carrying a hawk on his hand, crowned with a golden diadem. And he will say,
ecce ad sum tota die fatigatus, et dicet, quid vis [“Behold, I am here the whole day, wearied” And he will say, “What do you wish?”] etc.
Then you may speak with him and examine him without fear, and petition him
for what [ + you wish] , and he will calmly respond, and will ask, vis societatem meam
[((do you wish my fellowship?"] But you should respond with discretion, and defer
that possibility to another day. When he hears this he will immediately depart. Nevertheless, in the morning you will discover what you desired. I have proven this many
And the square that was mentioned.
So, yeah like all of these instructions I wish they were clear, but it sounds to me like this ritual is a tall order. Mostly for the Lapwing blood, like I don’t know where to buy some or even if it is necessary. So, I in turn ask anyone here, are there alternatives to use this ritual and give me some clear instructions on what to do? Mostly wondering what do they mean by “Secret wood?” and what kind of wishes (again, really wish they were clear on what these entities are capable of, otherwise I assume they can grant literally anything), like I understand the whole ignore the first two fair soldiers,
