I’ve been evoking through meditation for the past week now(except for Dra’talon, that was physical) and I’ve noticed some key differences between physical evocation and (astral?) meditative evocation…
I’ve noticed a blurring between the lines of reality and an almost drug-like dissociative effect in powerful evocations as well as a humming sound in a room host to consecutive workings… the after effects are (for me) is like one of the most controlled manic states you could ever imagine. pure power/euphoria… but I’ve also noticed it is dependent on the tools to a certain extent… decreasing the number of candles seems to decrease the effect and using no candles creates even less of a drug like effect. but you still have some drug like after effects most of the time.
Much less draining and borders on astral projection… the sensation is focused in your “other body”(and this is coming from a guy who can’t project for shit)… while I don’t physically see the entities in my physical evocations, mental ones are much more face to face, complete with things like body language… while it’s not dependent on physical tools it is somewhat dependent on your ability to project, and I’ve noticed from using this method my awareness slowly transfers from my physical body to my etheric one, essentially teaching me to project. while the after effects aren’t as “drug-like” that after effect is a more calm sense of “Knowing” like the path before you has been forged…
so my advice?
give meditative evocation a try, especially if you suck at projection, you’ll find your physical evocation is enhanced by the experience. Plus you want to be prepared for a situation where you can’t physically evoke.
whenever possible physically evoke, as this seems to have a much more palpable effect, blurring the lines between the worlds… while the end result is the same for both, consecutive physical evocations slowly collides the two worlds into one, whereas meditative evocation simply strengthens the etheric body
