I consecrated and charged my black mirror this evening. Finally got a full moon with good weather. I’ve been attempting to evoke Mepsitahl for a couple of nights now. Tonight I used my newly charged and consecrated mirror. I’m a little blown away. Here’s what I wrote in my journal immediately afterwards. This was after opening her sigil and watching it flash for several minutes, and telling her what I wanted:
"As soon as I started gazing at the mirror, wow! She didn’t appear, but immediately I saw energy rippling across the face of the mirror. I watched in fascination, and felt a thrill. I remember thinking, “That’s energy. I’m seeing energy”. It then changed into a pattern of gold and pastel purple, and maybe some other colors, pin points of light. Almost immediately, a purplish-goldish orb sparked out of the center, giving me a bigger thrill, and bouying me up with confidence. I saw a few orbs, mists galore rolling across the surface, pulsing, but dim, glowey patches. I saw what looked like tendrils of smoke, and this made me look over at the stick of Nag Champa burning to the left of the mirror. The smoke was going straight up, and what I was seeing was coming from the right. I don’t think it was from the tea light behind the mirror.
A couple of times I could tell I was very deep inside my own head. Cool, but not long lasting. After a while, my vision started greying out. This also happens when I gaze at sigils for more than a few minutes. I can still see outlines of things, but everything gets kinda monochrome. After that started happening, I didn’t see much. There was a brief period of red mist, and a few mists here and there rolling across the surface, and some glowing patches. The mirror also basically turned grey as well.
When the “grey out” started, I stuck with it for ~5 or 6 more minutes, but I feel like a lot of stray thoughts were starting to run around inside my skull. All in all, a very cool experience. Evocation was a fail, but I still got something that was worth the price of admission. This makes me eager to use my mirror again. I realize the results of tonight won’t necessarily be repeated next time, or the next, but tonight shows it worked for me once, it can and will work again."
