I have been working with the Necronomicon spirit Zahgurim lately, following the Baneful Magick protocol. I have however asked myself why his name or activation word is not said out aloud in the ritual (consecration of his sigil) (maybe it is too dangerous?) so I have thought about him, spoken with him in my mind, and have probingly whispered his name at times and every time he has always been there immediately. I see him as a 10 ft high 2 ft wide pillar of black smoke. In my door opening first, then on me as tendrils of black wandering smoke. Lingering a bit more than I really like. I do not like it when the smoke penetrates my forehead - gets warm and I doubt the healthyness of it. But he leaves as I send him off again to the mission I originally gave him.
However today as my mind yet again meandered to him, he showed me himself (as the usual pillar of black smoke) and me as a very strong knight in very strong armor. The armor also felt kind of colorful (even though mostly black metal) just like I did when I returned to the dark side a while ago and just drew darkness into myself. So I guess I asking whether someone has ever worked with this entity. Personally, I am very hesitant to it, because of his reputation.
I share this also as this spirit is someone that there is not so much written about - even here, so please, share your thoughts and experiences.
