Hi, this part of the process is really relevant and how long should it take? Damon Brand talks about thinking about the spirit for half an hour or even a week
My mentor spent 180 days on his and even those that had no spiritual Abilitys or training could feel it
I think it’s more of a depends on how powerful you want it
It’s completely individual. If you have a well developed imagination, it can take only a few minutes or
a few hours. John Kreiter, in his book on servitors recommends half an hour to several days.
In a lot of Chaos Magick materials, most magicians seem to spend only a few minutes on their servitors before sending them out. In Modern Magick, Donald Michael Craig says a couple of days for creating his ‘artificial elementals.’
In my opinion, it is wholly dependent on the magician.
In my experience I would suggest at least reflecting/feeding your servitor once a day - they are like a fledgling bird after created.
I have Damon brands book titled magickal servitors as well as my first servitor in gestation at this moment for the past week. I also don’t quite know when it’ll be ready. But I will when the time is right?
