What happened for a First time experience of Goetia, for four, along with our guide.

Just a little preamble. We did a one day Ceremonial Magic Course with Andrew T. Austin. There was people from all walks of life that attended the workshop. . For me I grabbed at the course, never come across nothing like this any where, it was in the right place at the right time.  Anyway this is what happened with complete novices in a Magick Circle and Seasoned Guide (magician) Andrew, so our first time Goetia Happening.

Date of working: 5th August 2016.
Moon age in cycle: 3 days (waxing moon)
Astrological date: Anno Vii Sun in 13° Leo, Moon in 14° Virgo

Rituals begin: 1010hrs, Rituals finish: 1330hrs.
Location: Arundel, West Sussex, UK.

Weather: Bright and sunny, heavy clouds to north, dry.

Participants: 5 participants, 4 male, 1 female.

Following explanations and “walk through” of the operations, three complete Goetic operations were completed, each using the following format.

Following the adornment of the vestments, each particpant took their place within the circle. One participant serving as scryer sat on a chair facing a raised evocation triangle, in the centre of which was placed a large obsidian mirror and censor. A seal of the demon was placed beneath the obsidian. Another participant opened with a full LRBP for preliminary banishing, and a second participant then read the preliminary invocation. For our purposes in this instance, Psalm 51 was used. The participant serving as exorcist then began the evocations.

At the conclusion of the evocation, a second full LRBP was performed immediately after the licence to depart was completed.

Experiment 1.

The exorcist (1) wished to evoke Paimon for the purposes of learning more in the arts. Despite repeated demands for obeyance, Paimon failed to appear and the operation was abandoned.

During this operation however, it was subsequently learned that participant (1) reported a strong vision of the following symbol appearing in front of an oceanic scene (a cross – X – vertically in the center a wooden staff) Within this symbol appeared the face of Baphomet. This symbol then turned from 2 dimension to a 3 dimensional image before fading. Two distinct sentences were heard from this figure, “he is not listening” (the target of which was not ascertained) and “he believes he cannot” which was clearly directed at the exorcist. During the secondary evocation, Reggie, our dog sat outside of the circle to the west at rear of the room began growling whilst facing to the east before settling down to go back to sleep. Shortly before the abandonment of the operation, he then vomited in the South just outside of the circle. Participant (1) also reported having very cold feet for the duration of this operation, something from which he has never had a problem with previously.

Participant (3) reports: On opening the circle I experienced gold shimmering completely encircling the whole of the circle. As Paimon was summoned a red horned creature appeared in the scrying triangle, red in colour with shiny skin and about the size of a small Labrador Dog. The creature sat facing the Scryer but appeared to get impatient and turned slightly towards the Exorcist we heard the creature say ‘He is not listening” and another statement I cannot remember. Reggie the Dog growled at one point and then was sick just outside the Circle a short while after the Evocation was stopped.

Participant (4) reports: “After using hyssop [for washing] I took my place in the magic circle. A participant was nominated scyer participant was appointed exorcist. In the magic circle the evocations started. I could visualize the angels in the 4 sides. I saw on the east wall as patterns of light and shadow form an entity that seemed like a demon appears and disappears. I was aware of the movements of the group. I think at one point we became synchronized, I did not notice and did not hear the dog which was sick outside of the circle.

Scryer (1) reports: “[Whilst] acting as the scryer the mirror started again like a pool which turned into a deep well. Some swirling action and grey mist appeared. Some specks of light (orange) appeared to swirl within the mirror. I experienced some slight frustration/ disappointment at not being able to do more. There was some bright lighting from the room lights that perhaps were hindering the process.”

Exorcist (1) reports: “I was the first to be the exorcist. I decided to call Paimon, my reason for doing so was because I wanted a familiar. Ok keep this simple, I felt a presence not long into the invocation, I saw flecks of gold and Aiwass came to mind. Bless the Scryer because I knew I had a manifestation. And to be honest by the time I had read the second conjuration I was pissed off with scryer (not personally) At this point I saw a red mist. And could feel the scryer’s frustration. It was come on for fucks sake. I noticed after reading so long I felt out with the stars, my perception of reality had changed. I was half in the room and also out to the stars.I felt like I was in a cone (elongated triangle) And up to my ankles was like I had been standing in a fridge. Reggie (dog) I felt was protecting me in a way. As he had come round to my right side and was out of the circle and puked and when Andy said dog has puked, I looked and my answer laid there, Reggie saying I puked for you. I was going to start reading again, but after seeing Reggie, my heart was not in it and Paimon had gone.”

Experiment 2.

For the second experiment, the lighting in the room was dimmed further. The exorcist (2) wished to evoke an unnamed demon associated with a series of events in his life connected to the number 13. A unique seal and name was established prior to the experiment, the nature of this was not discussed with the other participants.

The Dittany of Crete incense crackled and popped and the scryer (2) reported quickly the appearance of “the vixen” announcing dramatically, “the vixen is here!” before changing into human form in the form of a female of ancient Egyptian form. What was interesting was the dialogue between exorcist and the entity demonstrated the manipulative nature of the entity and the exorcist was reminded to take control and not be fooled by the demon. The entity was attempting to take charge by making demands upon he exorcist.

Scryer (2) reports: “The Exorcist wanted to evoke a Demon which was a number as it appeared in quite a few episodes of his life. I was scrying for this evocation and as soon as we started the incense popped and straight after a symbol appeared which resembled a Vixen it said ‘The Vixen is here’ and then walked across the Triangle changing into an Egyptian type woman about 2foot high. The Demon was very bossy and the Exorcist had to take back control of the conversation.”

Participant (2) reports: “As reader for Psalm 51. The scryer appeared to pick up visualisations very quickly – a Vixen. Some dialogue was then engaged with between the Exorcist, Scryer and Demon – which had taken human form as an Egyptian. During this session, I saw 4 blue lights act as corner points for a square; behind which was a light blue pentagram. Would like to have another go at this, with a bit more preparation. (After thoughts: what an interesting bunch of people…and what an odd way to spend a Friday morning!)”

Participant (3) reports: “13’s presence I felt straight away, and the incense popped and made me jump. The scryer started to speak to the exorcist. I went off in my mind. I saw a Blue Triangle, Eye of Horus, all Egyptian Phenomena was happening. Sparks of blue energy? The river Nile came to mind as did a woman. Did not feel emotionally attached to what was happening. And I felt the exorcist nearly lost control of 13. I projected energy to him to TAKE control. Not meant in anyway personal. I think there was a language barrier, what do I know. But was glad Andy was there, as my head went oh fuck, we are going to reverse engineer The Demon.”

Exorcist (4) reports: “I read the evocation. I was interrupted by the sribe. I was reminded that we must take control of the discussion. I had a strange conversation with the demon, which took the form of an Egyptian woman who had somehow sense. This has given me new meanings on the situation. I sent the demon to where he came with some regret.”

Experiment 3.

For the third experiment the exorcist (3) wished to evoke Barbatos in order to learn more of the language of animals.

Upon the first mention of the name Barbatos, participant (1) witness a strong astral vision to the west of “the dead arising from the sea” complete with blowing trumpets. The arisen then assembled to the west of the circle remianing their until the licence to depart was given to Barbatos.

Exorcist (3) reports: “I wanted to Evoke Barbatos to learn how to communicate clearer with animal the Demon appeared as a white bearded man in a long cloak. The Demon answered my questions and then I asked him to depart. Paticipant (1) witnessed behind him the Legion of the Dead.”

Scryer (3) reports: “The exorcist invoked Barbatos. I was to scryer and even before the prayer I saw a presence. Thought how could that be, we have not invoked no demon (they were already in the triangle, i thought on reflection) He appeared Etherial in white-to-grey cloak and had a long white beard in the mirror. I also was not having much luck I felt looking into mirror. So closed my eyes Barbatos was still there. Then I was thrown right off when I saw a donkey and a horse. When I went to right down some notes I was put of track, when they questioned me about what I saw. Could not write much after that, I was in mid flow to writing more then it disappeared. I don’t blame the exorcist (as they were curious) but mind went blank. Sorry.”

Participant (4) reports: “I read Psalm 51. I could feel the power of the words. After reading Psalm 51, I started to see ue sparks and blue flames in the obsidian mirror, even though I wanted not to look in the mirror, for the entire duration of the experiment.”

 

 

Participant (4) reports: “After using hyssop [for washing] I took my place in the magic circle. A participant was nominated scryer a participant was appointed exorcist.

Date of working: 23rd September 2016.
Moon age in cycle: 22 days (last quarter)
Astrological date: Anno Vii Sun in 0° Libra, Moon in 1° Cancer

Rituals begin: 1020hrs, Rituals finish: 1300hrs.
Location: Arundel, West Sussex, UK.

Weather: Bright and sunny.

Participants: 3 participants, 2 male, 1 female.

For these experiments we performed two operations.  Both opened and closed with the LRBP, with Psalm 51 as the preliminary invocation.

Experiment 1. The female participant acting as exorcist called upon Furcas (50th spirit) for the purposes of furthering her studies in tarot and astrological symbolism.

Furcas is thus described: “He is a Knight, and appeareth in the Form of a Cruel Old Man with a long Beard and a hoary head, riding upon a pale-coloured Horse, with a Sharp Weapon in his hand. His Office is to teach the Arts of Philosophy, Astrology, Rhetoric, Logic, Cheiromancy, and Pyromancy, in all their parts, and perfectly. He hath under his Power 20 Legions of Spirits.”

It should be noted that in our ignorance, we assumed that divination by card (i.e. tarot) and not in fact, palm reading.

Initially despite repeated invocations, nothing happened until it was realised that the seal of Furcas had not been placed within the triangle. Once this was rectified and invocations resumed, a presence was soon witnessed.

582a32ba95d77e68312c17ac6a649e3eCuriously, prior to the appearance, three animal forms were independently and distinctly seen by two participants: an elephant, a bull and a goat.

(Earlier at the Adornment of the Vestments, one participant made a comment, “It feels like I’m getting ready for some kind of wedding.”)

Participant 2: “I reiterate that the Exorcist exclaimed “Feels like I am going to a wedding today” before Adornments and Adorations of Hyssop.

The first Demon to be called was Furcus and they thought it was about Tarot cards and infact it was meant to be palm reading. The skryer felt the frustration of the Exorcist. Initially despite repeated invocations, nothing happened until it was realised that the seal of Furcus had not been placed within the triangle.

Before all this and prior to the appearance, three animal forms were independently and distinctly seen by two participants: an elephant, a bull and a goat/Ox what ever it was it had horns.

The skryer reported see a Knight on horse back of a white/grey horse in full armour carrying a spear, infront of a lake and a castle could be seen in the back ground and reported seeing a sword coming out of the water with just the hand holding the sword.

Conversation followed between exorcist and scryer. After a little while and some confusion it was ascertained that it was about Tarot cards (in skryers mind) and The card was The Fool. The exorcist realised that the skyer was speaking about the Tarot Card The Fool (and not “a fall”). And asked how they could learn more. Furkas spoke of learning the basics element (earth air fire and water) and Planetary signs how they related to the days of the week. Exorcist asked “how do I find out that information” and Furkas half laughed and said “Google!!” It was at that point the skryer noticed an orange and pale colour cross. The top point and the arms ended in points.”

Participant 3: ” The first demon to be summoned was Furcus in order to learn more about the Thoth tarot (but not for Palm reading) and to understand the relationship between the images on each card and in relation to astrology and the qabalistic Tree of Life. The exorcist read the invocation and there wasn’t anything coming through for the Scryer, until it was realised the seal of Furcas had not been placed in the triangle. Once the seal was placed the Scryer saw a Knight riding a Horse with a weapon in his hand also 2 participants reported seeing an Elephant, Goat and Bull. The exorcist asked Furcas how they could learn about the pictures and symbols on the Thoth Tarot Furcas replied start with the fool and also agreed when summoned by the exorcist to help when they were studying the cards. The exorcist thanked Furcas and then banished.”

Experiment 2.

For the second experiment, Crocell (49th spirit) was selected. Crocell is described thus, “He appeareth in the Form of an Angel. He is a Duke Great and Strong, speaking something Mystically of Hidden Things. He teacheth the Art of Geometry and the Liberal Sciences. He, at the Command of the Exorcist, will produce Great Noises like the Rushings of many Waters, although there be none. He warmeth Waters, and discovereth Baths. He was of the Order of Potestates, or Powers, before his fall, as he declared unto the King Solomon. He governeth 48 Legions of Spirits.”  

Krocel did not appear himself immediately, but instead sent a familiar, in the form that could only be described as resembling a Wookie. This was explained as a “friendly face” to path the way. Crocell himself appeared authoritative, mysterious and dark. In response to The Constraint he stated that he had infinite patience and feared nothing. Cocell spoke with precision and laughed openly at the exorcist’s sometimes vague and mumbling questions.

Participant 2: “The exorcist picked Crokel to help them with learning geometry and other liberal sciences. The demon sent a familiar at first called Wooki!! The Exorcist mumbled his way through a few questions.The Exorcist thenasked how he could move forward in his occult studies and Crokel answered “by your feet” and openly laughed (bastard!) I believe the Exorcist may have laughed. Another question asked was there any dark energies effecting him and the answer was none. Every question they asked Crokel had a answer, a comical one to him. The Exorcist by then was rather muddled during the whole contact.

But the Exorcist seemed calm when Crokel said to call on him when needed and he will send familiars. The Demon spoke and said even God trembles before me!! After Licence to depart when the skyer stood up, a figure was noticed on his back. He was in a very dark blue or even black cloak there was just blackness you see at night instead of a face. In his hand was a light it reminded the Exorcist of The Hermit except the light was like a golden star. Then we banished.”

Participant 3: “The Exorcist chose the Demon Crokel in order to learn about Geometry and Science it didn’t take long for the Scryer to have a familiar appear which they said looked like a Wookie. As the Scryer was in conversation with the Wookie I could see red, green, blue and yellow swirling around the circle it seemed to encompass all in the circle rising up it stayed until the banishing. Crokel appeared on the table to the left of the Scryer and the exorcist asked his questions in a very unassertive way. Crokel seemed to be humouring the exorcist as when asked “how do I move forward with my studies?” Crokel answered “by moving your feet.” The exorcist asked if there was any dark energies around him, Crokel said “no” it seemed to me Crokel was quite mischievous in a nice way and the exorcist *wasn’t quite sure what a familiar was.* (Micomunication there as the Exorsist knew perfectly well what a  familiar was, only 20 year ons and it was learnt through Paganism or Wicca maybe, definitely witches)  Crokel said he would help him to find his and to just call on him when required. The familiar stayed on even when Crokel left and then we banished. To add as we were able to look at Andy’s tarot cards as a result the ritual and my experience made a lot more sense to me and also helped me understand a bit of how the ritual and Tarot are connected. Fascinating insights thank you.”

What I would like to point out here is that myself and another had only trained a day at a MMM workshop. This was to be final happening in 2016.
On reflection a lot of change has happened. Maybe put some myths to rest, especially that Demons are evil, was it scary, and that it is Black Magick afoot.

Some close friends were shocked sadly, now we are not speaking and actually hurt my feelings as they had been friends since our childhood, and disappointed that it was not taken in the perspective that I saw it from.

Perhaps I will first show any name can be turned into a divine name. Just by adding EL, ON REN to the end. EL means “of God” hence there are so many names (Holy ,Angel Forms) that end in EL & ON which means “Sun” in Egyptian. REN is Egyptian and means “the true name”.

 ************************************************************************

Aleister Crowley’s variant of the circle and triangle, used in the evocation of the seventy-two spirits of the Ars Goetia.

Goetia or Goëtia (Medieval Latin; anglicised as goety /ˈɡ.ti/) is a practice that includes the invocation of angels or of demons. The use of the term in English largely derives from the 17th-century grimoire The Lesser Key of Solomon, which features an Ars Goetia as its first section. It contains descriptions of the evocation of seventy-two demons, famously edited by Aleister Crowley in 1904 as The Book of the Goetia of Solomon the King.

IS this actually sounding evil, I think not and do your own research on this subject and who was “King Solomon”?? And what are the 72 Demons? Bottom line the

These are the key points from A. Crowley. Goetic Operations are psychological ?

There are changes to stimulate the brain. And in my own personal opinion it was these ritual devices that stimulated my own, as it has done for others for 100’s of years..

(1) Sight. The Magick Circle, Triangle, Robes, vessels, lamps, candles ect.

(2) Sound. The invocations

(3) Smell. The perfumes (incense)

(4) Taste. Sacraments

(5) Touch. (in 1 )

(6) Mind. The combination of the above and ones understanding of, there of.

To be continued.
