Summoning Primers

For some folks, there are magical books where you are instructed on how to
summon Spirits given a set system that is simplified, easy and yet still
functionable with good results. I consider these manuals as primers for the
budding karcist (i.e. summoner) which virtually anyone can use with good effect.
Realize that these summoning primers are not set strictly in the Solomonic
system but the basic concepts and ideas are present for you to get your feet wet
in a safe manner AND experiment with until you are ready to jump into the deep
well of the grimoires. For the experienced karcist, these primers will be
unnecessary so please feel free to disregard this post and carry on business as
For the beginner these primers are priceless in that the manuals offer how-to in a
system that has been fleshed out by the author and worked through over the
years by numerous readers/fans of the primer. Some of these manuals you may
know from me speaking about them, others you may not.
Gods, Spirits & Daemons: A Beginner's Guide to Evocation by Seleneicthon ~
Teaches you how to summon the Four Elemental Kings. Inexpensive. Published by
Mi-World Publishing & available from Original Publications.
The Mystic Grimoire of Mighty Spells and Rituals by Frater Malak ~ A worthwhile
book that shows you everything you need to perform the summonings of the
Spirits listed. Fully self contained. Do not buy into the BS that you need the Spirit
Card that came with the original book. Photocopy the page with the Spirit seals,
cut them out and use those OR simply hand draw them onto parchment. Either
works fine.
The Miracle of the New Avatar Power by Geoff Gray-Cobb ~ One of the best
primers for the karcist to get their feet wet. Well written. Easily understandable.
Material works. Included is a section on using the Middle Pillar with NPE's. Gray-
Cobb is also none other than 'Frater Malak'.
Daemonic Magick by Seleneicthon ~ Essentially this is about how to summon
your own personal guardian demon.
Secret Magic Revealed by Anne & Nelson White published by the Technology
Group ~ Explains in a lucid and serious manner how to summon the Spirits of the
Goetia. One of the best primers for working with the Lemegeton's book of Goetia
but this manual was out of print for years and fetched a very high price from rare
book dealers.
High Magick's Aid by Anne & Nelson White also published by the Technology
Group ~ Explains how to make the magic mirror, circle, & etc, as well as having
the calls and other materials needed for a classical evocation of the Spirits.

Note results. then step up to the plate and choose a system such as the Grimorium Verum or The Almadel and start building the tools you need and choose which Spirit out of them you wish to contact first. Winning At All Costs by Seth & William Van published by Finnbarr International ~ Hard core and right to the point. Remember. The names & seals I have never found anywhere else such as Perabula. Experiment. Malcheor. and etcetera. you SHOULD have the requisite skills ready and developed to take you into actual grimoires like the Keys & Clavicles. The idea for the beginners is to get your feet wet first by using the summoning techniques in these books. Ritual templates for many different uses. Hardbound and a bit pricey for some on the used book market but I have heard it is coming back in print as a paperback. Spirits summoned are from a variety of sources. Rantupal and so on. Seals & sigils for Spirits are unique. GV. The Do It Yourself Witchcraft Guide by Luba Sevarg published by Award Books. read and study its system.
