Great explanation of ritual summoning on the My Occult Circle blog today:
the spirits actually very rarely ‘come through’ fully. Most magical rituals work much more like a phone call. The carefully created sigil together with the name of the spirit work as the telephone number…
these days our ‘Arte’ revolves around trying to make the best phone calls.
This is what I’ve been trying to get at, talking about the difference between sending instructions to outside forces / ethereal software (making a phone call) vs driving magick yourself with your mental muscles. I love the phone analogy.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
