A problem arose last night, which will probably take some explanation and background. I took a break from all things magickal for about 4 years, but now I am back, have my path mapped out and have started moving forward again. Last night my wife and daughter went out for the evening and I stayed home to evoke Bune. When they got home a short chat found my daughter in tears.
A few years back I started working with the Voudon Gnostic Workbook and I did one of the exercises, I think it was to call the Dead or the Voodoo Hoodoo Spirits or something. Work with that book didn’t last long, I found it to be a bit flakey, however on that night while I was doing the Working my daughter was asleep and was awoken by something, when she opened her eyes there was someone standing next to her bed. It freaked her out to say the least and she has never forgotten it.
She is now 17 and is afraid of the dark and being alone. She always feels like someone is in her room watching her. I’ve tried to talk her through it but it doesn’t seem to help. Now my talk of evoking demons has set off some fear in her. She knows what I am doing, she understands the meaning of “demon”, we talk a lot about magick and all of this, but Hollywood movies have gotten to her and she is just not taking any chances. She’s afraid of this thing in her room and she’s afraid for me.
I asked her last night if it would help if I were to summon this “thing” and see what it is and find out what it wants. She admits herself it might be her own fears, but she’s taking no chances. It’s mostly the unknown part she is afraid of. We have a house ghost who she knows and she is not fearful of that in the slightest.
Where I am stuck is, how do you evoke an unknown entity? If I can do that, then I can work on the rest.
