I alluded to this in another thread but wanted to flesh it out in its own topic.
Lucifer has been teaching me ways to use magick without tools.
One of the questions that has been on my mind has been, why would I use a spirit, vs. just using pure thought-based magick?
And something Lucifer told me the other day totally blew me away and changed my whole perspective.
So first I should mention that in my own belief/experience, spirits—whether demons, angels, elements, gods, etc—are just streams of consciousness or energy. In the astral, individuality isn’t quite so defined as on the physical, so energy streams can easily merge, separate, and merge again in different configurations. This is what we commonly call “masks”—how one being or “stream of consciousness” can present itself to us with many different aspects, but all having the same essence.
So here is what I was shown:
In magick, we’re manipulating energies to our will.
In evocation, we’re summoning a spirit to do our will.
Basically the same thing.
Even in the law of attraction, our desires evoke certain streams of energy that resonate with that desire and which bring it to its completion.
Energy = consciousness, beings are streams of consciousness.
And therefore, when we do any sort of magick, or even intention setting/visualization/whatever, we are tapping into consciousnesses/beings that we just aren’t labeling, who are choosing to help us.
As Abraham-Hicks might say it, it’s all a co-creation.
It’s all evocation.
When we choose the energy stream/being/demon we want to work with, it’s just more deliberate. We’re calling out one particular stream out of an entire ocean of streams, and calling it forth to aid us.
But it’s all the same thing.
