Just open sigils before evocation, until you feel comfortable handling their energy.
you don’t need to use a $600 dollar book. And the beauty of it is, if you use E.A.'s free help, you can learn how to get $600 dollars with magick to buy the book. And I don’t know about you, but this seems to be useful for a lot.
The methods he gives for free on sigil opening. You can apply to other grimores, and you can do a lot with them. This is much safer and easier and requires less preparation than evocation does, but this just gives you access to the same types of powers and things you can accomplish, it seems to be enjoyed a lot by people on the forum also.
I posted the method E.A. gave out a while ago, I made a HUGE post containing it in this thread which I posted a link to, if you can find it you will have the formula for opening sigils.
Best of Luck,
if i sold my copy, i’d sell it for 250 AUD. that’s what i paid for it and i have the complete works now. i also own all the other books EA’s written. i think my KoF is a first edition, too. i’d be willing to part with them for what i paid, but i paid a fair bit, relatively speaking.
Links with ! in them break. Fixed your link.
