Invoke - Call on (a deity or spirit) in prayer, as a witness, or for inspiration.
Invoking is a great tool for anyone looking to form a deeper and stronger connection with their chosen deity, invoking is a slight form of possession and thus, a very powerful tool for ones enlightenment/ascent.
I find people who struggle with evocation enjoy invocation. If you cant sense a spirit’s presence outside yourself calling it in to facilitate/guide your thoughts and actions is often time more potent. (or at least this was true in my case)
Invoke the spirit
Easy enough right? Simply call or ask the spirit to come into you to help with any given task.
Ex: “Azazel I ask that you come into my mind and guide me through this meditation.”
You can also command or will the experience into existence with the classic -
“(Entity name) I invoke you!” or “I invoke (Entity name)!”
All variants are effective and work, choosing is simply a matter of preferences for the magician.
If you find yourself having a difficult time or feel the need for a stronger invocation visualize breathing in the spirit’s energy into your third eye as the energy swirls and permeates throughout your brain and into your blood. Breath in the knowledge and the power of the diety as you relax and begin to turn yourself over to this higher power/altered state.
Learn and Discover
Now that you have successfully invoked this higher power its time to use it.
I suggest watching videos, drawing, reading, listening to music, brainstorming, daydreaming, and journaling. At first, the voice in your head may sound like your own, but you will find yourself using odd words, or a slightly different approach to tasks. With frequent invocation, you can expect an advanced degree of comprehension along with greater separation between your normal mind and the entities (if so desired).
It is quite common to have new profound discoveries, or cathartic spiritual and philosophical experiences.
Remember this is a shared experience, the entity is now directly influencing you and your comprehension do not be surprised if you find invocation addicting, or extremely rewarding. These beings love to help us grow, by offering your mind and body as a vessel you are giving these higher powers reign to imbue your psyche with their knowledge and practical application. Since they are directly tapped into your mind they will alter your beliefs in accordance with your will, and destroy any limiting beliefs you may have around your ascension goals.
With invocation, you give chosen deities a direct streamline and funnel to shamelessly manipulate you for your highest good/desires.
