Hey BALG Family,
So I finally tried it for the first time today…and well…it was pure comedy!!
Here’s the play by play:
I’m using Gordon Winterfield’s Demon’s Of Magick Book, and I wanted to do 3 Ritual #1 invocations with King Paimon, Prince Sitri & King Belial.
I carefully considered what I wanted to request from these 3 mighty demons and made sure to prepare myself to give them the utmost respect & reverence while asking for my requests.
The first was to King Paimon, I totally fumbled this one up, as it was my first ever…I was highly unprepared. As I jotted down notes and summaries for myself to remember key parts to the ritual, I found out in real time…I sucked…lol. I took way too long, forgot I needed certain things or to read certain parts that pertained to King Paimon only and not the general ritual. I then went to burn my request and almost burned the house down!!..lol…I ran to the bathroom to douse water on the paper…ritual 1…FAIL!..lol
Ritual 2 to Prince Sitri…I tried to analyze everything I did wrong with King Paimon’s ritual and not make the same mistakes. I prepared even more, had all the things I was supposed to do and say down pat and went for it. Welp, I thought I was doing well and reading everything ok, although I was still haunted by what I did wrong with King Paimon…I kept saying to myself…I hope I didn’t offend him as I truly respect him and feel bad for messing up the ritual. As I’m going through the ritual with Prince Sitri…I realized I skipped over the Invocation Psalm, so went back to do that and repeated everything after. I then did the License to depart and realized…wait…I didn’t do that for King Paimon…so after I completed the ritual with Sitri, I did the license to depart with King Paimon.
I was getting ready to do the ritual with King Belial but my grandmother who lives in the basement of our home came upstairs and said something smelled on fire…of course, this was the smell from earlier and it scared her. I assured her it was only me burning a cheap candle (wasn’t cheap) and everything was ok. I decided to postpone the ritual for King Belial until another time.
So, I realize I have a lot of more reading and work to do to be better at this, I have seen and heard nothing but great results from using Winterfields methods, so know it was me and not the book. If anyone has a pipeline to King Paimon and Sitri, please apologize to them for me. I actually got the feeling they weren’t upset with me, more rather amused and laughing, but I still want to offer them my deepest apologies and if I did offend them, please let them know I plan to make it up.
Well, there goes my first time in a nutshell. Definitely not going to stop and it was exciting still to actually do this type of magick…I’m looking forward to trying again:-)
