I just accomplished my first evocation (and it was delightful!), so I’m curious…
I can have a demon charge a sigil. But, why do that when I can create one on the fly, muster up a flash of energy (Austin Spare style) and do it myself? Same with divination, I suppose. Why have another entity involved when Higher Me is capable?
- Will I learn more more quickly?
- Do they get it done more quickly?
- Or elegantly?
- Can a demon read my intent more precisely?
- Can a demon rearrange currents into the future for a better overall outcome than my Higher Me?
It seems like unnecessarily inconviencing a new friend or acquaintance. It also seems like I’d want a damned good bond with the demon before attempting this.
That and evocation is a bit of a production being a mother with a teething baby and such. The energy requirements are enormous to both grow a human and undergo that kind of psychic/emotional/physical strain. Its a sharp learning curve. Especially since my two demon contacts are fond of whiskey.
