You have to learn how to walk before you can run. So I agree on the fact that people need to learn the basics before they start evoking spirits. I just don’t think the problems people are having with evocation is because imposter/parasitic spirits are showing up. I think they’re doing something wrong which is causing this to happen.
Trusting your abilities is important when you’re using will to manifest something. I would say will is the most important thing a magician needs to learn how to use and without confidence those abilities you’re talking about would be rendered useless. You need to be confident in yourself and your abilities to will something into existence.
If they took evocation seriously and did their research then they would know the proper precautions. Most grimoires cover shielding, binding, protective circles, etc. I’m assuming people who are doing evocations have some kind of understanding on how an evocation ritual works because it’s pretty advanced compared to what you’ll find in your bargain shelf occult book at Barnes and Noble.
I never said it was unnecessary to learn the basics. Sure they want to speak to the spirit they’re evoking. I’m just pointing out that some of these spirits command legions and it’s not out of the ordinary for one of them to show up.

Is there some kind of schedule? Because lilith is booked up for the month. Maybe I can get her on Tuesday if blacksun666 cancels his morning evocation with her…
If people are limiting the demonic in such rudimentary ways then it’s pretty clear to me why people are having so many issues. The demonic are aspects of something much bigger than what we experience on the day to day. To humanize them is a pretty big mistake.
Yeah, norse had a pretty solid post.
