Hand Pick A Demon
Unlike what the majority of people think, not all demons were created alike. Exactly like humans, there are respectful ones, pleasant ones and downright nasty and horrifying ones. Similarly, each demon specializes in a different field of expertise. In the case of unanswered questions, for instance, seek Asmodeus or Astaroth. That promotion at work you can’t seem to get? Belial is your guy. Eligor is the best choice for advice on court cases. If you’re indecisive altogether, best go with Goetic demons as they have proved to be the friendliest towards humans.
Narrow Down Your Request
As stated by the Ministries of Joy of Satan, “it is important to have a specific purpose; know exactly why you need to summon a demon in particular.” It is also highly suggested to “treat the demons with honesty and respect. Never command, demand or try to exploit them in any way.” Additionally, prior to summoning your desired demon of choice, make sure to carefully select your request. This ascertains you achieve your goal.
Offer A Bargain
It is plausible (and decent to say the least) to have something to offer a demon when you ask for their services. In most cases you can simply ask the demon what they would like. However, “fighting against the enemy in some way, publicity for the demon, working against the enemy, or working to advance Satanism” are plausible choices you can think about. At the end of the day, it is imperial that both you and the demon are on the same page.
It is vital to bear in mind “the Elder Gods value one’s word, honesty, integrity and one’s honor as the utmost importance” when prepping for an offering. Undoubtedly, avoid presenting offers that you are incapable of following through with.
Means of Contact
Once you settle on the demon you would like to contact, make sure to decide on an appropriate means on contact. Based upon prior experience or familiarity with the process, you may witness physical evidence that the demon was present.
If it happens to be your first time, the energy of the demon you invoke can be sensed and you will be “engulfed in a powerful, electrifying aura.” You could also attempt communicating with the demon telepathically. A scrying mirror is one of the more common methods used to communicate with a demon. It is a special mirror that opens up channels of communication with the supernatural.
Power meditation is a great skill to exercise your mind with before you summon a demon. The exercise is known to “open your psyche. You may experience ‘gut feelings’ through enhanced intuition, in other cases, your mind will be open and more receptive to astral entities.” Thank to the Joys of Satan Ministries you can get more help about the topic by making use of “Correctly Aligning the Chakras,” “Telekinesis,” and “Invoking The Elements.”
Preparing The Ritual
Preparing the summoning ritual is a whole other process on its own. It is not necessary to conduct the ritual in the wee hours of the night. That being said, it is highly advised that first-timers and newbies follow this method in order to heighten their chances at making contact.
Although movies depict demons summoned by means of giant pentagrams (and also confined to such spaces), but the Joys of Satan Ministries disagrees. According to them, “Demons hate circles and there is no need for a ‘license to depart’ as both are offensive and insulting.”
Incense is a key part of the entire ritual. Different demons are attracted to different kinds of incense. The Joys of Satan Ministries states that “incense varieties correspond to the planets.” For example, upon summoning Sargatanas in order to boost sexual prowess, an incense that corresponds to Venus (ruler of love-making magic) such as chamomile, jasmine and lilac should be used. Valac on the other hand, the demon to be summoned for lucky lotto numbers, pick an incense that corresponds to Jupiter (ruler of luck magic) such as honeysuckle, cedar or nutmeg.
Candles are just about as necessary in the summoning process as the incense. The right candles need to coordinate in color to the demon you wish to summon. As an example, summoning Balam for the upcoming weekend date or to make you funnier the colors to choose would be orange, yellow, white or gold. These hues coordinate with the Sun which is the ruler of charisma and magic. In case you do not find appropriate colors, a safe bet would be black, red or dark blue.
The Demon’s Sigil
Focusing on the demon’s sigil will help you achieve premium results. You could either neatly draw out the demon’s sigil or print it out and study it. Memorizing its shape will help you. Because then you will need to “close your eyes and visualize the sigil in your mind as best you can. While visualizing, recite, or chant, the name of the demon repeatedly either in your mind or aloud.”
The Demon’s Prayer
Following the chanting of the demon’s name is the ritual of reciting the demon’s prayer:
“Lord Satan, by your grace, grant me, I pray thee the power to conceive in my mind and to execute that which I desire to do, the end which I would attain by thy help, O Mighty Satan, the one True God who livest and reignest forever and ever. I entreat thee to inspire [name of Demon] to manifest before me that he/she may give me true and faithful answer, so that I may accomplish my desired end, provided that it is proper to his/her office. This I respectfully and humbly ask in Your Name, Lord Satan, may you deem me worthy, Father.”
By this point you will be consumed by the energy invested by Satan to summon your requested demon. If you do not make contact at the first try, do not fret. The Joy Of Satan Ministries states that “most people have had to perform the summoning ritual more than once for the demon to manifest. Often, the demon does answer, but many are not aware. Look for positive coincidences and things out of the ordinary. Awareness here is everything.”
Making Contact In The Future
Once you successfully make contact with a demon, it is unnecessary to carry out the ritual all over again. It is important to do so for the first time only. Afterwards, contact can be maintained via crystal balls, Ouija boards and even candles or mirrors.
Speaking To Demons
It is important to “always treat the demons with honesty and respect,” if you are lucky enough to manage contacting them. Remember to “never command, demand, or try to exploit them in any way.” Politeness and manners will play in your favor greatly. Also, bear in mind that granting the demon with a “license to depart” is humiliating. Onceyour request has been made and the conversation ends, they will depart on their own. It is common to experience being “achy, tingly, or noticing an extremely powerful energy,” owing to the excessive levels of bioelectricity possessed by demons.
Now that you are aware of the steps that are required to summon a demon, perhaps you will not feel so lost the next time you are faced with bad luck. However, it is wise to remember that demons are not to be toyed or played with. They are not beings created to serve you and your needs. To summon a demon, one needs to be respectful and mindful of the boundaries that are in play. Additionally, you need to have a very specific aim in mind. Otherwise you will incur the wrath of the demon upon yourself.
