So yesterday I performed my first evocation. It was supposed to be just a simple sigil magick ritual, but then I decided: You know what? Fuck it! Lets put some more “practical” in “practical spirituality”. I evoked Lotir as she is governor of true love, because i might have found my soul mate. The whole situation seems like destiny, but I am required to cleverly navigate a few social circles to make it happen and thought that I could use a little insurance. Anyway, I gathered any tools that I thought were useful, but didn’t have everything for a traditional evocation. So I kinda winged it and decided to make the ritual my own.
It went like this:
First I did a lesser banishing ritual, then made a circle out of flour (not the best idea if you have wooden floor btw) and drew the symbols found on the universal circle, also in flour. Then I lit a red candle and put a black mirror in the circle. I inscribed Lotir’s sigil on a medallion made out of apple tree wood with my athame as well as drew it on the other side with a black marker so it would be easier to gaze at. I should mention at this point that my athame isn’t traditional. I use a fancy single edged hunting knife with the handle made out of horn, that belonged to my grandfather who was very successful and strong willed person. I feel more empowered when using it rather than some generic dagger. Besides that with me I had a picture of the girl pulled up on my phone and a 5 grape offering to Lotir. So got into t/g sync and started to call upon Lotir, problem was i couldn’t maintain my trance. Usually with meditation, energy and sigil work I can keep my trance no problem, but now I was doing physical actions that made me in and out of it. Could not feel any presence even though I asked Lotir to make her presence known. Frustrated, but not beaten I acted as E.A. advised and proceeded as if Lotir was in the room. I explained the situation, made a blood sacrifice on her sigil to show my devotion, gave her my offering, made my request and dismissed her.
Sooo… I don’t know. What do you guys think? Ether way I’m kind of proud of myself and my first ritual. I guess I’m asking for you to point out my wrong doing so I could improve for the next time, because I’m pretty certain in this rituals success assuming Lotir actually showed up.
Oh, also. After quite tedious clean up I went out to light up a cigarette with the lighter that was in the circle during evocation and felt a sharp pain for a few seconds in my abdominal area. Coincidence? I THINK N… well yeah probably. But it was kind of out of the ordinary.
So let me know what you guys think. Any opinion is greatly appreciated.
