So, I have an amazing update to share. I took the advice and went ahead and made a makeshift triangle out of an old fabric I had in the back of my house, I had actually purchased Solomon’s circle (I felt more inclined to that one rather the UC) so I drew out the triangle with a black marker and wrote the God names around the outside, but I also had an urge to draw the symbols that Koetting uses on his triangle (the one in the evoking spirits seminar). At first I was worried about combining systems since I know it’s been advised against in the past, but it appeared to work great for me.
When it had all been set up, I decided to perform my first proper evocation. I had tried to evoke Paralda before, with no result that stood out to me that said it had worked (however I didn’t have a triangle and at that time I hadn’t really worked on scrying vision, so I attributed my failings to that). Instead, this time I was inclined to evoke Michael. I had drawn his sigil out before hand (about a week ago) and had been practicing getting into the TGS with it, and connecting my mind to his, so I put his sigil inside the triangle (which I placed in the north only because my temporary temple is very very small and it wouldn’t fit anywhere else…).
I tuned the lights down and set out some candles, and I began to gaze at the sigil and vibrate his name. I found that I entered the TGS a lot faster than normal when I was doing the ritual. Once I was in the tgs I got up and performed the LBRP to start the ritual, which worked very well since I could feel a definite change in the atmosphere. I then continued to vibrate Michael and generally asked him to come into the temple, on the second wind of the incantations the room became more humid and I felt a definite materialisation in the north. He chose to ignore the triangle which I did laugh at afterwards, nevertheless I definitely felt a presence.
I told him that I felt him in the room, at which point (bear with me because this is where it’s gets weird…then again you all might be used to it!) I began to hear a voice in my head, it was essentially a form of weak telepathy I think. It wasn’t physical, but I’m still working on that, but I continued to ask questions and was getting answers in my head that didn’t feel like me answering, if you know what I mean?
I’ve actually been having trouble with a spirit recently, my mother kept saying she didn’t like being home alone because “there was something there” and it was evident that it was interfering with my energy work and meditations, so I asked Michael if he would get rid of the spirit for me, which he laughed at and then said he would, but in future I should “use energy to cleanse it”. He then told me to call him again once my other supplies had arrived (brazier and candles), which I thought was interesting because I hadn’t told him I had them on order, but he evidently wanted me to evoke him to full materialisation.
I then went to get up and get out of the circle and felt a gust of air (faint but still evident) that made me sit down again, at which point he said “you haven’t dismissed me, you must dismiss all spirits before you leave”. At which point I chuckled and thanked him for reminding me, then I dismissed him and asked him to “bring my will into manifestation” which is the phrase Koetting used in evoking eternity.
The presence then lifted and I blew out the candles and went to bed. I did get a nose bleed after the ritual which I thought was funny, but put it down to coincidence.
I remember someone saying to me that if you can feel a presence when you evoke you can go ahead and call it a full evocation, which is great because I proved to myself that my system is working which is a real booster!
