A Traditional Goetia Ceremony Conjuring a Spirit to Visible Appearance

As there has been a few blog entries lately by some well known individuals about the ins and outs of so called “physical manifestation”, I thought I would also contribute to the world of magical blog entries upon this matter, because I am one of those few who have performed it traditionally with all the required equipment and tools as stated in the text of the Goetia. But, this article will not be about the difference between the terms “physical manifestation” and “visible appearance” which, I have described before now, here   or why it is, or is not a necessary requisite for success, as this has already been extremely well articulated by others such as Frater Ashen here = Instead I will share with you four workings from my magical diary about traditionally conjuring the 70th spirit called Seere to visible appearance, which I did about two and a half years ago.

In this article I will explain exactly what happened in the ceremonies, what I seen, what I felt, the after effects, even the mistakes I made along the way, and details of the manifestation of the result I conjured the spirit for. By sharing a detailed account like this, I hope it will help others catch a glimpse of what a traditional evocation is like, while also showing the learning curve I went through in the process.
Diary entry friday 29 May 2009 Goetic Conjuration of Seere 
Started 11:17am Ended 1.17pm

I repeated 1st conjuration 3x, the 2nd conjuration 3x, the invocation of the King 3x with the 1st and 2nd conjuration, and the constraint 3-4 x.
After the 3rd repetition of the first conjuration I felt very hot, but then it suddenly went a lot cooler. At one point I did see an electric coloured blue spark of light over the triangle which was in the east. I stopped at the end of the spirits chain and observed the area over the triangle, and I did see a lot of blue coloured light, which moulded together to form a football size ball of blue light. This happened while intently staring at the space in the air over the triangle. It felt like I was scrying, but staring into space in mid air. No manifestation, so I did not give the charge and instead repeated the license to depart 3x. I did not want to use the sulphur and asafoetida, and chickened out of using it.

I realised that I had forgotten to use the hyssop oil to anoint my eyes and temples with!

Diary entry 30 May 2009 Odd happening!
My son was sat on the floor watching t.v. I called him over to come and have a look at something on the computer, and no sooner had he got up and walked over to me, there was a mighty big crash and bang! My stag horns which were screwed into the wall had fallen off somehow, and had knocked over a solid granite stone cat statue, and two heavy wooden book ends off of the shelf below. The whole lot came crashing down and left a massive dent in my antique opium table, and landed on the floor where my son was previously sitting! The horns and wooden book ends would of landed on my son if I had not called him over to me!!!

The odd thing about this is that I had just taken a photo of my goetia book I was using to draw the spirits seals in. I had placed the book on the table to take a picture of it to show my friend, and then picking it up and then sitting down at my computer desk, and I then called my son over to me, and then BANG CRASH exactly where I had just took a picture of the book on the table! My friend suggested that the spirit's energy may have been responsible for this because it had possibly shown up and was still around. He thought this because when he had called the same spirit, he had heard lots of moving of things in his next door neighbours house during the ceremony, while the house was empty. I will never know if it was to do with the spirit or not, but, if it wanted my attention then it certainly had it now!

Diary entry : Tuesday 2 June 2009. 2nd Conjuration of Seere
 Started: 10:30 am Ended: 12:03pm

At first I felt very hot, and then it went a lot cooler. I felt very anxious, as if something was about to happen any minuet. I started to see the blue light again, lots of it and with some purple colour to it as well. It again moulded into the shape of a ball that was quite big. I did not take this as a sign of the manifestation, and therefore I carried on the conjurations. At another point the wall on my left creaked. It does not normally do that! I also seen what appeared to look like heat waves in the air at the far tip of the triangle, like you see outside rising off the surface of the road on a hot day. Then I seen very briefly a beam of white light in the same spot, but the the telephone rang, which totally shook my concentration and disturbed the visionary effects. I let it ring as I did not want to leave the circle to answer it. I kept getting thoughts of “I can't be bothered to do this” and “is it worth the hassle”, then I started yawning and feeling really tired. Suddenly I found a new burst of energy and went for it with the conjurations once again, but after repeating them all for the second time back to back, I gave the curse and stared at the triangle to see nothing happen. This time I used the sulphur and asafoetida, but to no effect, except for a coughing fit and an awful smell. I could not seem to re-establish the higher state of consciousness I was in after the phone call had disturbed me. The phone rang again, and so I thought “oh fuck it, I give up” and I gave the license to depart.

Diary entry : same day : time: 8.00pm
Thinking about the goetic ceremony earlier today, I think the spirit did arrive and quite quickly too because the blue light display I observed was quite phenomenal! I remember it being quite bright blue with streaks of violet/purple. The light spread out across the space between the North-East & South-west quarter candles. It seemed to lap up against the edge of the circle like a wave rolling onto the shore. I now think this is the time that I should of given the address, and then the welcome because the spirit had arrived and was showing me a visible appearance of its presence. Which, is exactly what I asked for in the conjuration. “therefore come ye peaceably, visible and affable now without delay

After speaking to a friend on the phone who also does traditional goetic evocation, he said to me that the spirit is only supposed to take on full manifestation after the address is given. Well its all part of the learning process.

I want to call the spirit again on Thursday, but it depends on how I feel because tomorrow I have to go into hospital and have one of my top wisdom teeth removed under general anaesthetic.

Diary entry : Friday 5 June : time 2:00pm
In too much pain to do any conjuring yesterday, there is no way I could recite conjurations, when in this type of pain without even moving my mouth.

Diary entry: Thursday 11 June.
I have been in horrendous pain and feeling very ill because I somehow managed to get an infection in my mouth where I had my wisdom tooth removed. I have not been able to eat properly or even hardly speak. I look like Pop-eye the bloody sailor man with his puffed out cheeks! I am taking antibiotics, tramadol and dihydrocodeine pain killers. This last week and a bit after the evocation has been a living hell because of the pain I have been in, and yesterday was my birthday. I certainly was in no mood to celebrate. This morning I was sick a few times, I really feel awful. I hope I start to get better soon. I wonder if this is all because I conjured the spirit the day before going into hospital and not giving it the charge, but this is where its energy has leaked out too instead effecting me in a negative way? It has hold of my attention again, and I must succeed with calling this spirit.

Diary entry Friday 26 June 3rd Goetic Evocation of Seere
Started 11:07am Ended 12:53pm
 I entered into the ceremony feeling positive about calling Seere with a successful outcome, but I did not succeed. After a short while I realised I had forgot the gas stove fire that I use for heating up the seal in the box, should I need to use it. I carried on regardless, and no sooner had I decided to be determined, I was disturbed by a lot of noise from outside my house. The bin collection was late and made a right racket outside emptying everyone’s bins. By this time I was on the the second conjuration which I had repeated 3 x. I could not seem to reach the required spiritual state of mind, and felt more frustrated and annoyed than anything else.

The only significant occurrences were once to my left hand side of vision the space in the air seemed to tremble or move like a vibration, and the light coming from underneath the curtains was very briefly blocked, but this could have been anything outside, or even a trick of my mind. So this was another unsuccessful evocation attempt. I felt very tired and I felt as if I would be sick, as well as feeling very pissed off!

Diary entry Sunday 28 June. 4th Goetic Evocation of Seere
Started 10:40am Ended 11:40am
 This time I had everything prepared. I repeated the first invocation 3 x and then I stared at the triangle on the floor. After a very short while a started to see a ball of blue light that became bigger. It then expanded into a mass of blue light, and like before it enveloped the eastern area of the room. It started to pulsate and I got excited, but contained my excitement because I new what I had to do this time, although I felt totally mesmerized and captivated by what I was seeing with my eyes. I felt like I could just stand there all day staring at this phenomena, but thought I better take it as a sign of the spirit's arrival. So I gave the address and lit the charcoal block and cast the incense upon it. Next I gave the welcome while continuing to stare at the blue light that had now gathered together directly over the triangle. I still felt hypnotised and totally captivated by the light, so I asked the spirit to take on human form visibly. Once I did this I suddenly had a clairvoyant vision impress itself upon my minds eye, while I was still seeing the blue light over the triangle with my physical eye sight. This was strange, as I was expecting the light to change into a form of some sort, but it didn't, and instead I had a type of split vision of an outer perception of my physical eyesight seeing the blue light, and this very strong impression of the form of the spirit that impressed itself quite forcefully upon my inner vision. The image was of a grey coloured slender being which had red eyes. It had the body of a man which was bare, with thin legs that looked like it was sat on something invisible. It was not very tall, maybe a little smaller than me, as I am only 5”5. It certainly looked otherworldly, but with brushed back hair and pointed ears, like pan or an elfish creature of some sort.

I gave it the charge for my request which was; “to give me a better home and enable me the opportunity to be able to live in a home that is more suitable for magical workings, a place where my son and I will be happy living in. I also asked him to reveal to me treasures that are hidden.

After this I thanked the spirit and gave the license to depart 3 x. I said prayers to God thanking him for the experience and how the working went.

Diary entry Monday 29 June Dreams
I was with a person who was stealing money to pay off his depts and to pay me. Next I stepped over these two sisters who were play fighting with each other in the street. Next I was in a shop where a baby that looked like a cat was asleep, she awoke and turned into a young child. Next I was in a room hiding inside a lion skin suite because another person or lion was waiting to eat a woman that would come in to the room.

Diary entry same day
Since the evocation of Seere yesterday I have felt very positive and upbeat. All negative feelings have vanished. I looked in a book today a friend lent to me, and I came across the name “Seir” which said “enemy of the rod of Jacob, a goat like demon” Remarkable! Seere actually looked like a satyr, a goat like demon!

Diary entry same day time : 2.18pm
Just had a phone call from my landlord housing company, informing me that my house has come up on the list for a new gas boiler and central heating system! This is excellent news, especially considering that I had a letter 3 months ago saying that there would be no heating improvements done to my house until the year 2019. I couldn't believe it, because it was one of the reasons why I wanted another place to live, because the heating system was an old back boiler in the chimney breast, which was costing an absolute fortune to run, and was so inefficient and noisy, I hated it and the old fashioned monstrosity of a gas fire which was connected to it in my living room, which would also be removed.

here is the letter I had 3 months before the ritual stating the date outlined in green of when the heating improvements would be done. 2019.
 I was very pleasantly surprised by this because I got what I asked for, although not in the way I had wanted, as I thought the best option was to move because of the letter I had a few months previously telling me about when they would be doing the work on my home. I did also get treasure revealed to me, but not in the way that I thought it would. I will save that story for another time.


  1. extremely interesting, brother! Thank you for sharing these accounts!

    Is the hyssop oil something picked up from Imperial Arts? Don t remember it being in the book itself.

  2. Thank you Asterion, I thought it was about time that I became a little bit more open about the things I have done and do. As I have remained in the magical closet far too long..LOL

    No, I have always known that hyssop oil is used as a cleansing oil in the Bible and in the Goetia straight after the part that says says "and anointing oil to anoint your temple and eyes with and water to wash yourself with" it uses the psalm of David which mentions the word "hyssop"

    A friend of mine who used to also do a lot of traditional conjuring with the Goetia, also suggested to me to use hyssop, which I was in total agreement with

  3. Hyssop is usually used as a herb to put in the holy water and sprinkle it around. Priests in Romania use basil branches for blessing. I believe the annointing oil to be the traditional oil used by Moses, the one Abramelin gives and Mathers erroneously translates with that galangal thing...

    but still, seems to work, why not!

  4. Thanks for the link, this gives me an idea about another article I could write ;)

  5. Hi Darren.Very interesting Work. Good Job :)
    Hoping that your problems of heating will be regulated soon..

  6. Yes the new central heating issue was sorted out within a couple of weeks of the end of June 2009. I had the news about it less that 24 hours after the visible manifestation

  7. Darren, I just realised you are not in my blog list with this, I don t know how I forgot. I ll put you in right now. Sorry!

  8. Thank you Asterion, that is very nice of you and I feel very privileged to be put on it. :)

    I still have not figured out how to put a blog list up. LOL, but when I do I will be sure to include you on it.

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. Ha, nevermingd. Thanks for the blog up!

  11. Always loved the stand! ..And the candles too ;-)

  12. Thank you Fra.Ashen.

    The stand is a Victorian mahogany plant stand. It is a family heirloom, one of my great great uncles made it. I was told he used to make pews for some of the churches in Wales.

  13. Impressive. Please make a new post about the "treasure" that was revealed. It is interesting to see the results of working with spirits.

    1. Thank you for your kind comments Lisa, I will post it up at some point, but I am a bit busy with another writing at the moment and also I am writing a book about the Goetia, and what mysteries I have found out about the system. keep a look out ;)

    2. Cant wait to Read Your book Mr. Scriven. Though, there is another Author named Kuriakos who is writing'm as well. The summonings in them dont really work though.

  14. Impressive work Brother.

  15. Dear Darren, My Name is Francisco, I am a Full-Time College Student and I love to Study Ancient Civilizations, dead languages, and took an Interest in the Occult. I chose the Spirit Marbas for My Goetia Summoning, and Believe Me, I did everyting to the letter!! I even made Oil of Abramelin from scratch, the skin around My neck is still Healing and peeling. but nothing Appeared or happened, having a lucid or Deep state of Consciousness helps, but, I just dont have Time to Relax and put Myself into a tranced state of consciousness. After Preliminary Invocation, I performed first conjuration X1, then Conjuration of Fire X1, then The Greater Curse X1, Nothing Appeared or Happened. I'm not made of Money so I had to improvise on My wand, I used the non-pointy end of My Bokuto(Japanese Wooden Sword) it is made of Oak wood so I figure...why not? and My white robe is made of white towels stapled together(Though still presentable). I'm falling in Love with these Goetia Summonings, but I still cannot Summon any of My chosen Spirits? What am I doing wrong? Any Advice?

  16. The Oil of Abramelin is made of galangal, myrrh, olive oil, and cinnamon bark oil. If I remember correctly its placed on scalp, then forehead, throat, solar plexis, navel, groin. That stuff burns like FIRE!! I almost keeled over from the Pain, and I had to skip a weeks worth of college classes to make time for it, but Marbas never Appeared. One seems to need to have a high state of consciousness and or Mind in order to see these spirits like mind over Matter basically. Darren is One of the few who seems to have gotten lucky enough to make his happen, he saw a blue ball of light and violet electricity, and Myself? the Flame on My candles flickered abit...but it was most likely the Wind because I forgot to close a window. I just want to become strong and Knowledgeable to Protect My loved Ones, but to do that...I want to use a aupernatural route. Useing science and technololgy got Me nowhere. I Humbly Ask for assistance from Anyone...Please Help...from One Father to another.

  17. Okay, so, when I was mixing My Oil of Abramelin from scratch...prior to it I've never touched cinnamon Bark oil before. I had some cinnamon bark oil left over after I finished mixing together the ingredients, it wasnt easy getting cinnamon Bark instead of leaf mind you, and I didn't want to waste it, so I thought "hey, I'll put in on My Genitalia to Relax, Warm, and Consecrate My Phallus and Testes and the same Time! God I'm so Smart AND Productive! Crowley would be Proud(Smile)." Then I Realized, "My hands reek of cinnamon and burn like Fire, I'd better wash it off. Wait, if it gives a Burning sensation to My Hands?..." Yeahp, you guessed it, I keeled over in Pain it felt like My Testicles were on Fire! "It Burns us! It Burns us! I'm washing it off with soap and water and the pain still isn't going away!! Maybe if I run around bit!" So, just picture a Tan, Muscular 23 year old Latin college student running around stark naked wearing nothing but a white robe(White Towels stapled together, I poor Bastard), and the Pentagram of Solomon on a paper circle with demons sygil on other side, and said bloke's arm's are waving around out of Pain of His Genitalia...that was Me Mate. LOL!!!!!!! Eventually the Pain went down after a minute or two, and finished My First unsuccessful Goetia Ritual.

  18. Personally, My evocations have produced wonderful results without the need for oils and elaborate layouts. The spirits/entities themselves are not concerned with incense/oil types nor how correctly the circle was drawn, complete with enough Hebrew to even shy the local rabbinical groups to shame. However, I do admire those that follow a traditional approach in attaining manifestations. It's refreshing to see those that contain to uphold the traditional solomonic vestures into the new world.

    1. What kind of evocation do you do? I've never had any luck with it.

  19. Thank you for your kind comments!

    1. Comment deleted because I do not know the person who's contact details you put up, as far as I know they may not even want their contact details posted on the internet, as you confirmed in your post.

  21. Hi Darren,
    I have a friend who believes she is cursed or has a generational curse. I have the book of Goetia and the key of solomon, but I am new to this. Is there a particular spirit that could help with this? Or is there some other type of ritual to banish the curse? Thank you for your help!

  22. Your blog has been posted into facebook..

    this link has been highlighted, along which I have ventured.. I will end here and wish you a safe journey..

  23. Wish this blog had more updates. Any new insights Darren?
