My success with evoking spirits range from clear speech and energy, to garbled mess, to no reaction(bare in mind, all from the goetia). Is your ability to work with a spirit limited by their personality or compatibility?
[I don’t know if I’ve asked this before. Everything gives me deja vk resently]
Possibly, this is where a clear and detailed magickal journal of some kind (DON’T groan! ) comes in.
if you observe that you get fantastic results from X spirit/method, but lousy crappy shit and loss when you try D method/spirit, you can actually, depressing as it may seem in this era of “oh yeah it’s just tools, we create meaning as we choose, all is tra-la-la” - you need to figure out your actual Strengths and Weaknesses.
Try getting a birth chart done, I think tarot dot com used to offer a basic automated one to show you the position of your planets at birth, then hit a reliable search engine and search up what that shows, you may find that useful.
i know it’s Work and not a neat answer but it;s the kind of shit that, pre-BALG forum, a lot of us had to do on our lonesome!
Also, try a bit of insight - how did you FEEL about these - did the failsfeel different in any way from the wins?
Was there a day of the week (asotrology shit yet again sometimes) or ANY other factor you can hone in on, and start to control?
Ah crap. I have my birth chart but didn’t do anything with it because I didn’t feel like learning ascendant, houses, trines,and all the other stuff. Perfection has no shortcuts I guess.
Oh! Actually, you reminded me of something. If they’re related to east and south or fire and air it’s 100% success rate. Facing north, or summoning things related to wealth, sex, relationships, a trial, divination,or law often ends in failure. Belials the exception, cause when I asked him for a sign he either increased the gravity and gave me couch-lock.
just asking cause i always wondered if magic ould grant us powers like for instance transforming shape shifting id like to be able to shift outside of the astro plain even though i still have yet to separate from my body once in that state i was dragged out of a dream last time by who i think was azazel
would have been great if i could all this through PM, but well i will just start here.
okay i am relatively new to magic.
i met someone who is helping me with my situation while teaching me and i have always felt that i have to do something myself also for it to work, we can’t just simply ask others to do our work.
so i did a petition some days ago and then i tried to do an evocation. (not sure if it worked or not) but i am believing it did, at least the entity heard me.
so the question is how one can know if the request is being worked on?
how one can make sure it manifests?
how much is too much?
At the moment it seems like transformation on the astral planes is infinite, you can grow a ten fooot thorned phallus from every pore (I, for one, like to do this every Tuesday ) or be stripped of flesh (shamanic dismemberment - to be a bit more serious) or whatever.
I am not curently aware of a method that grants this kind of abiliity to reshape your physical form with the same ease you can in the spiritual plabnes.
That may be my loss, but, I have observed a lot of bullshit and hype attached to shapeshifting and literally zero physical evidence - which, since physical claims are made, seems like a reaonsable reuqirement?
i did request that, but what i got was the green flames, when i burnt but then my mundane side(which is still so strong, started reasoning was it just science?) still i argued myself and tried to believe that NO! IT WAS A SIGN!
ive tried a were wolf spell only thing that changed was the sharpness of my teeth and strong head aches during full moons thats it so in reality no real proof that for sure works all the way so i was thinking if i incorporate a entity that has the ability to help with those kind of spells
yeah it does sound crazy at first until you think about the ablities you havethe physical strength speed and hightened senses and an incressed size to protect the ones you love by scary the crap out of ppl i love animals to but you know as a single parent its just me my familly has to protect them honestly the thought of doing that and changing as crazy as is sounds is more then enought to make me want to try
