Whatever the merits of this theodicy, its psychological difficulties are manifest. Gallegos Disclaimer: the purpose of this article is to present a condensed and formulated analysis of the use of Goetic ritual, primarily based on the early Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn system This is intended to be a basic philosophical and practical introduction; historical associations and academic sources will be limited as there are plenty of other well-documented articles on the matter.
Introduction As anyone in the sciences can tell you, the human will, in itself, is capable of achieving unbounded potential. The history of Goetic evocations date back, according to legend, to King Solomon. Likewise, he was able to maintain control over them through a series of magical instruments ranging from his ring to metallic seal inscriptions. It is truly a mystery as to who really might have written these strange passages and techniques.
However, if not properly controlled, they will strike back at you with great force. There have been many reported cases of this going wrong, leading to horrible poltergeist-like activity to even deaths. It is considered dangerous, and proper study must be met before even thinking of attempting anything from its passages. These spirits deceit, trick and do everything in their power to hurt you.
They have been known to give correct answers, but slowly overtime, will begin to mislead you and leave you weak and dependent on them. Like anything else, much of this is greatly exaggerated upon by Hollywood movies and internet rumors.
Yes, it is extremely dangerous, but it does have its benefits. The art of evocation is not of conjuring up actual pre-existing forces or entities that exist in the world. Quite the contrary, evocations imply the manifestation of archetypal forces that exist within an individual. This is nothing new or amazing. While undergoing psychoanalytic procedures, the psychologist might suggest hypnotherapy as a form of remedy.
Under hypnotherapy the person is then able to focus on the specific memory and begin to face the problem gradually face on , until the person comes to terms and gains control over the thought that causes the issue or manifestation e.
Addictions, bad habits, etc have always been around, and it is through these teachings one is able to subdue each archetypal demon that plagues us from within. The psycho-analyst is unable to assist a particularly bad neurotic patient suffering from a severe neurosis until he has delved into the Unconscious by means of his technique, and discovered the cause for the existence of the conflicts typified by those neuroses.
This examination of the contents of the mind, or of some portion of the mind and memory, gives clarity and coherence to the underlying neurotic cause, and the patient seeing clearly the form and cause of the evoked psychosis is thus able to dispel and banish it. So long as the complex is a hidden subconscious impulse, lurking without shape or form in the Unconscious of the patient, yet possessing sufficient force to disrupt conscious unity, it cannot be properly confronted and handled.
This is simply not true. The dualistic nature of reality is based on two energies, regardless of pre-existing connotations. In other words, both positive and negative electricity is neither good nor bad, but rather, both are reflective of a guiding principle and both are needed to make things work. Same goes for men and women. The dualistic nature of humans is neither representative of good or bad, they both are essential for the progression of our reality.
We associate many dualistic representations as either good or bad, this is just not true. Evil does not exist. Evil is ignorance. The analogy may be drawn upon darkness and light.
Many believe that darkness and light are always in opposition with each other, this is simply not true. Darkness is only the absence of light. In many ways, darkness is symbolic of ignorance, for where there is darkness there is only lack of light. The only thing that exists is light, and where there seems to be darkness, there is only lack of light.
The cosmic forces in the universe function on the principle of light. If any negative or malicious forces were to exist, it would be contrary to the evolutionary development of the universe.
Death, in this sense, is merely a vehicle for other creative processes to take place. No person can do harm unto you…unless you allow them to. By even so much as having a shred of doubt that somebody may be causing you harm, subconsciously you open a door to potential malicious intent.
You must maintain a pure belief that nobody can do you harm unto you regardless of their motive or ability. Do not allow any doubt to enter your conscious mind. Superstitions are ignorant beliefs once held in old times and do not have any validity within a mystical context. Gallegos Ceremonial rituals and theurgical incantations have been around for centuries.
Afterwards, the initiate, in their progression, would fully begin to understand the principles and symbolic representations by which all things are governed within nature and overall, the universe. It has been theorized that these later notions on subduing the lower parts of the self directly, in order to obtain higher truths, were those that later developed into early goetic practices.
Various representations beyond angelic manifestations or invocations were used as symbolic counterparts of the lower self dealing directly with various aspects of the human psyche in order to pursue or obtain a specific purpose, e.
The tools as mentioned by the Lesser Key of Solomon are the Circle, Triangle, parchment, seal, ring as well as brass vessel. The most important tools that are necessary for any Goetic ritual are the circle which establishes a boundary , the triangle which establishes a medium , and seal which directs the focus or attention.
These tools can be used to transfer the entities from the Triangle, and into the Circle and into a medium, such as Ouija Board, etc. This can vary in size, as some Golden Dawn groups maintain massive circles able to hold up to 20 people inside. I have also seen people use string or other items including salt , to maintain a stable perimeter in which to work.
Note this triangle is to be places upon [towards] that Coast [quarter] [that] the spirit belongeth [to]. It is the medium in which the entity summoned inhabits. The original Triangle, as drawn, maintains a black spot in the center which is where the entity enters into.
In all practicality, I do believe a mirror is the best medium to be used along with the Triangle of Solomon for the purpose of conjuration. Next is the the Hexagram of Solomon or Seal of Solomon which is used as a means of protection against the spirits. This seal can also be found on the ring mentioned in the Goetia used to command the spirits directly. It is for to preserve [the Exorcist] from danger, and also to command by.
Long white robes, and incense are also needed. In this higher form of Magic no exterior triangle is needed, for the Magician, both Circle and Triangle in one being, is desirous of mingling his own life with and surrendering his own being to the greater life of a God.
The Triangle implies manifestation and duality, the separation of a lesser being from the Theurgist. In Invocation duality is an unmitigated curse ; the purpose of that aspect of Theurgy being to eliminate duality. The Evocation, on the other hand, is the deliberate conjuration or the calling forth of an incomplete or lesser entity into the Triangle of manifestation which is placed away from the circumference of the Circle.
The definitions of the two major figures are very important and useful, and should, I think, always be remembered. The Circle is the sphere of consciousness; one, integral and complete.
The Triangle represents manifestation and separation, and it is therein that a being of darkness is brought into light from the hidden confines of the inner circle. A God may be presumed to be a complete and harmonious idea ; coherent and absolute within its own sphere, an all-encompassing macrocosm to which the Magician, who is a microcosm, unites himself within the protected limits of the Circle. On the other hand, a spirit or an intelligence is a lesser being, and although by definition it is a semi- intelligent force of Nature, it is an idea which is neither complete nor well-developed, and comprises but a limited and partitive consciousness.
In the case of Evocation, the spirit is evoked into a Triangle bounded and protected by divine names, placed on the outside of the sacred Circle, and the Magician within the Circle stands in relation to the spirit as a Macrocosm and a superior being. Just as the invocation of a God floods the human consciousness with an ecstatic surge of the divine light and life, so does the Theurgist stand as a God and energizer to the spirit.
The purpose of the evocation is, in short, that some portion of the human soul which is deficient in a more or less important quality is made intentionally to stand out, as it were.
Given body and form by the power of the imagination and will, it is, to use metaphor, specially nourished by the warmth and sustenance of the sun and given water and food that it may grow and flourish. The technique is the assimilation of a particular spirit into the consciousness of the Theurgist, not by love and surrender as is the case in the Invocation of a God, but by superior command and imperious gesture of Will.
By this assimilation, the wound of Amfortas is healed, the deficiency is remedied, and the soul of the Theurgist is stimulated in a special way, according to the nature of the spirit.

A footnote in one variant edition instead lists them as Oriens or Uriens, Paymon or Paymonia, Ariton or Egyn, and Amaymon or Amaimon, alternatively known as Samael, Azazel, Azael, and Mahazael purportedly their preferred rabbinic names. Samael , Azazel, Azael, and Mahazuel. Most of the spirits summoned are tied to points on a compass, four Emperors are tied to the cardinal points Carnesiel in the East, Amenadiel in the West, Demoriel in the North and Caspiel in the South , and sixteen Dukes are tied to cardinal points, inter-cardinal points, and additional directions between those. There are an additional eleven Wandering Princes, totalling thirty-one spirit leaders who each rule several to a few dozen spirits. The Ars Paulina is in turn divided into two books, the first detailing twenty-four angels aligned with the twenty-four hours of the day, the second derived more from the Heptameron detailing the spirits of the degrees of the zodiac. A 15th-century copy is attested to by Robert H. Turner, and Hebrew copies were discovered in the 20th century.
