I feel a common misconception in magic is that in order for it to be effective it must be time consuming. It doesn’t. It means it’s inefficient. There are +30min long evocations vs just thinking about the demon and he’s there.
A common answer I get is meditating
Define meditating. I think some people regurgitate it and doesn’t really know what it means or why.
I get ‘meditate’ on the sigil as an answer. So I just stare at it? There are some good meditating which require visualisation. That’s not the stereotypically meditation meaning clearing the mind and thinking absolutely nothing.
A lot of rules in magic exist like you burn a paper as a letter to the Gods. Does anyone ask why or how that works to gain a profound understanding.
Maybe you’re already an experienced magician, and these hypotheticals don’t apply. I feel I guess this post is geared towards budding occultists, including myself. Ask questions. I think it’s more honorable for Lucifer to have independent thinkers as followers than those of a lower caliber
PS burning paper makes carbon monoxide which makes cancer so if there’s other methods please share
