This is simply a basic view on the understanding of summoning forth spiritual entities, and is by no means an extensive overview of the practice, and I am also not responsible for how you choose to use this information, or what comes forth from it’s execution.
In order to do this practice effectively you are going to need to understand, or have a method of
- Protection through shielding
- Divination, or spiritual communication
Conjuring spiritual entities is a process in which you summon forth an entity to your location in order to communicate, and interact with them. In order to conjure an entity to you all one must do is call for them. this can be done in many different ways but will usually include some form of connecting with them, so that you can ask them to appear to you. There are many different ins-and-outs to this practice, and practitioners do it differently based upon their tradition, and understandings, but in this post I will be going over my understanding of the practice, and how one would go about allowing these entities to appear to them in a basic effective, and safe manner.
Protection, and banishment:
All entities that you run into may not be friendly, so before you attempt to bring forth an entity you should be ready to protect yourself. You should take some time to learn some protection, and banishing methods so that you will be able to defend yourself if needed. You should also try not to bring forth anything you will not be able to banish, or protect against, so that you do not put yourself in any position where you will not be able to be safe. Practices that I would recommend that you should learn before attempting this practice are things such as the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram, and the practice of casting a circle, or some other variant of these two things.
Respect, and Trust:
When dealing with other entities you should be respectful, and honorable to them to the best of your ability, and to the most that you would like to provide. You, and them both have a say in what goes on when you guys work together, and a little bit of respect can go a long way. When working with other entities you are engaged in a partnership with which both parties should acknowledge, and honor.
Remember that one entity does not know everything, tou should trust them but you should also always check to make sure the information is right, and true. Do not just accept things because entities tell you that they are correct they could always be misleading you, and not have your best interest at heart.
How to communicate:
There are many ways to communicate with spirits, and other spiritual entities that exist on different planes of existences. These can be complicated, or they can even be very simple. In order to make sure your communication was spiritual entities is clear and consistent you should take time to learn communication practices, because it is very important to be able to communicate with anything that you bring forth into your space. The methods that you can use in order to communicate with entities:
- Ouija board
- Automatic Writing
- Astral Projection
- Along with many other methods.
For the practitioner to bring forth all manner of spirits, and entities they should try to follow this paradigm that will lead them down the path to fulfillment. The primary purpose of this paradigm is to bring forth lower and higher spirits. There are two pathways in which one can choose from: Evocation, and the other Invocation.
In evocation the practitioner will summon the entity outside of themselves usually into a triangle of the art, or another form of spiritual binding, so that you will be able to place yourself in a seat of power over the entity during the summoning. This will be done with spirits that you do not trust, you do not know, or entities you believe would try to harm you. Things such as demons, nature spirits and any entity you don’t have an established relationship with are summoned through this pathway of understanding.
The triangle of the art or another form of spiritual binding should be used like chains to constrict the entities who do not generally work in your favor, or that you are not sure about. This will allow you to control their movements outside of your protection and will make it easier for them not to hurt you and for you to send them away if needed. Though the binding will not be able to hold all forms of entities such as deities.
Invocation brings the entity very close to you, so it is a good idea to make sure that you trust The entity, and have a good relationship with it before doing so. Invocation is primarily used in order to connect with higher spiritual entities such as deities, ascended masters, angels, and positive metaphysical Energies, or it can be used to call forth entities that you trust such as your spirit guides, thought forms, loved ones and spirits you have interacted with that you know will not harm you. you should only invoke higher spirits and not lower ones in order to keep yourself safe and protected from negative influences directly.
Step-by-step for conjuring spiritual entities:
Nothing is needed to call forth the spiritual entities except a sigils, and a name that the spiritual entity is known by. If you do not have either of these tag locks you could always go through the process of making your own by giving it a name that you can refer to it as and by creating a specific name sigil for that name. After you have that all you will need to do is follow these steps in order to summon forth spiritual entities.
First you will need to start off by cleansing the area, so that you will be able to bring it back to how it was naturally. This can be done through any cleansing method, and should be done quite thoroughly. This will allow you to make a space where you will have complete control over all the the energies that are present within it, so that you have no surprises during your conjuring of spiritual entities.
If you are going to be conjuring spiritual entities that you do not trust, or are iffy about you will want to construct a triangle of the art, or another form of spiritual binding. Remember that you want to place this outside of your circle, or other form of protection, so that the entity will be able to be stuck within it. Place the sigil in which you have constructed within the binding apparatus, or on top of it, so the entity will be binded once it is called from that sigil.
If you are going to be invoking the entity into your space you should bring any connection to that entity, including the sigil into the space where you will be casting your circle, or other protective shielding. By doing this you will allow the entity to be able to come into your space to communicate, and interact through the invocation process.
Next you will want to take time to center, and ground yourself in the spot in which you will soon be making your space of protection through the circle casting process, or a another method. This will be good in order to get yourself balanced, and aligned to the energies of the universe, while also giving you a connection to the earth, and the moment in time in which you stand.
Once you feel like you have yourself in order you can then begin the process of setting up your space of protection. You can do this through casting your circle or any other form of protecting method that makes a shield between you, and the outside space. It is imperative that you do this in some regard in order to keep yourself safe, and to keep out other forces that you do not want to interact with.
Next summon the elements, and guardians to the cardinal directions that you associate the elements with. This will go through the process of empowering your working, and your shield in order to provide you with more power. Take your time to call in the elements of fire, earth, water, and air.
If you are going to be invoking the entity into your space you should bring any connection to that entity, including the sigil into your circle, So that the entity will be able to come into your space to communicate, and interact.
Calling forth the Entity:
Once you have reached this point begin to charge the sigil through any sigil charging method, and then activated through an active activation method in order to release your calling out into the world to summon forth the entity that you are targeting. This will allow the spiritual entity to come to the location of the sigil which is either going to bind them within your triangle of the art, or allow them to be drawn directly to you, so that the communication and interacting process can begin. You may also want to chant out their name, and express your intention for them to show up,so that you will be able to will there manifestation into being. It may take them some time to show up depending upon different factors, but once they do you will be able to feel their presence. Once they show up you will be able to work with, and communicate with the spiritual entity.
Next you are going to begin your communication process, during this time you are able to communicate with the entity for whatever reasons you decided to summon them for. This part of the practice is really up to you to decide what you would like to do. whether or not you want to build a relationship with this entity, take it on as a spiritual companion, ask it to complete a task for you, and then send it out to accomplish that task, or anything else that you can come up with. It all really depends on you and your prerogative.
Once you are done communicating with the entity you must go through the process of sending them away. If you invoked them you can simply say goodbye to them and allow them to leave on their own accord, because there is nothing holding them here. They will simply be able to leave, and go on with what they were doing.
If you used evocation in order to summon the entity to a triangle of the art, or other form of binding you will have to banish them in order to make sure that they never are able to directly interact with you. This can be done simply by using the Lesser banishing ritual, or other banishing method in order to banish then out of your space.
Once they are gone you can then begin the cleanup process of your ritual.
Now you are able to undo your protection, and cleanse the area in order to bring everything back to how it was naturally. After that it would be a good idea to center, and ground yourself again in order to connect you back with the physical world and any energies that may have gone astray during the ritual. Once you complete that you can then return back to go about your day as you do normally, or maybe even record your experiences.
