I'm curious about using this, I've heard its a great book to start on summoning but what's your guys experiances or stories with it? Anything in general will be appreciated
In the modern day, acquiring all the necessary resources to prepare the summonings is beyond the means of most people, although I seem to remember that someone here, probably one of the Fraters, had managed it.
Thats pretty cryptic..
Maybe not, but i didnt expect you to comment on it for no reason
Just out of curiousty what materials do you need? I still havent gotten around to reading the book and I'd like to find out if its worth it either just for being interesting or actually being useful
>Just out of curiousty what materials do you need?
Here's just some of the examples:
"THIS is the Form of Pentagram of Solomon, the figure whereof is to be made in
Sol or Luna (Gold or Silver), and worn upon thy breast; having the Seal of the Spirit
required upon the other side thereof. It is to preserve thee from danger, and also to
command the Spirits by"
"This is the Form of the Secret Seal of Solomon, wherewith he did bind and seal
up the aforesaid Spirits with their legions in the Vessel of Brass.
This seal is to be made by one that is clean both inwardly and outwardly, and that
hath not defiled himself by any woman in the space of a month, but hath in prayer
and fasting desired of God to forgive him all his sins, etc.
It is to be made on the day of Mars or Saturn (Tuesday or Saturday) at night at 12
o’clock, and written upon virgin parchment with the blood of a black cock that never
trode hen. Note that on this night the moon must be increasing in light (i.e., going
from new to full) and in the Zodiacal Sign of Virgo. And when the seal is so made
thou shalt perfume it with alum, raisins dried in the sun, dates, cedar and lignum
"The other magical requisites are: a sceptre, a sword, a mitre, a cap, a long white
robe of linen, and other garments for the purpose;29 also a girdle of lion’s skin three
inches broad, with all the names written about it which be round the outmost part of
the Magical Circle. "
Senator, the only problem I see is the tattooed lion skin, since they are endangered. The other stuff is both cheap and accessable.
And yeah, it's time consuming and needs to be precise
That's not even all of it. That's just some of it! Some people claim you can half ass it but I don't buy it. And I mean, none of that's IMPOSSIBLE, but it would take a lot of time and a decent amount of money.
I dunno, think about it. We don't see "brass" as expensive, but getting a craftsman to make a brass urn to those specifications is going to up your costs considerably.
A black virgin rooster's blood isn't inaccessible, but to make sure you're getting the real deal (definitely black rooster, definitely never had sex,) is going to cost you months of your time.
So yeah, not at all impossible, but it reaches a dollar value and time commitment that I guess I would just conclude are outside of what most people are willing to commit to.
I don't even see gold or silver expensive since 2008 since everything turned to shit. It never came back high as it was before.
I live in rural central Europe so black roosters are a common sight for me.
yeah, but can you be sure they haven't slept around? You perform the ritual and at the end you're all, "holy shit that farmer burned me this rooster was a MACK!"
Yeah, he's a champ. He's playful like all cats, only bigger and more energetic, with more predatory agility.
Found him as a frightened, starving, abandoned (don't know what happened, cats take care of their young) kitten sometime in 2014 during one of my walks through the forrest
I've tried half assing it and it doesn't work. Regular cock blood (mostly black, probable virgin not hard to find if you live near Jews). A friend of mines dad had a lion skin carpet so I cut a piece of it (looked legit enough said he paid pretty high for it).
Those were pretty much the hard parts. Everything else you could buy pretty cheap online. And steal gold/silver dust from your school/university's chem lab.
Didn't work for me but black cock + lion skin was probably the problem.
Check this book out. DuQuette is a pretty well respected author, as well as a pretty high ranking member of the OTO.
The deal is Crowley worked a lot with the Key(s) of Solomon, and DuQuette takes a slice of that and makes things very practical. The "summoning" part is very real, but also depends on your point of view. I am going to give the very quick version:
1) Some say that the "demons" are just "forms" of your own psychology. So when "summoning a demon" you may be in fact "talking to yourself". It can be a matter of belief either way.
2) You always use a scrying method when talking with the demon, so that despite whether or not you get a physical manifestation, you have some way of getting information back and forth.
3) despite whether or not you believe the demon is real or imaginary, the protection steps are a must so that you basically don't go crazy. In other words "demon possession" from a secular point of view may be an awakening of a dark part of your own psyche.
Lots of fun stuff, check the sticky link on /x/ and don't forget you can get some mega downloads on the torrent sites.
