Can I do a ritual in my head not out loud so I can do it infront of non practitioners
Yes. That is what working in vision and the astral temple is for.
I haven’t been able to reach that yet
Imagine your voice thundering out to the ends of the universe when you do
Though for demons of Goetia I find rites work best when spoken out loud
You don’t need to “reach” anything.
It’s all done in your imagination, so if you can imagine something, then you can build an astral temple and work in vision.
I will be high on cannabis this will probably help me create it but will I be able to retain it sober
As soon as contact is imagined, contact is made
The rest of dressing up a ritual is your trance state and getting out of your head enough to accept it as real
You should pick up a copy of Lucifer and the Hidden Demons, or Raziel’s Paths of Power, or even Goetia Pathworking, and learn how to use elemental imagery to contact spirits.
I find it’s a very good state for “hearing them”
First time I realized “Demons are REAL!!!” was after talking to King Paimon and hearing his voice in my head faster and more precise than I could possibly think due to how twisted my brain was from the herb.
It really lets you feel the spiritual in a big way, just don’t come to rely on it if you can. Boost, not a platform
Truth be told, I do some of my best work while I’m asleep.
I do to I see sigils sometimes I get the chance to draw them when I’m awake then sometimes I loose them to quick
