Invocation is a practice for actualizing your own possibilities. Through this practice you, the magician, configures a space from which emerges an element of darkness, something which cannot be described directly but only tangentially as the “unthought”, the “shadow”, the “other” or the “original”.Through and by the act of invocation, the “darkness” is illuminated, reanimated and made itself into a mode of action which may hurt or heal or offend or reconcile or attract or repel, break or dissociate, disunite or reunite; it cannot help but liberate or enslave. You, the magician, is transported to ground zero.
Whether you are a true worshipper of Satan or a follower of Christ, these medieval texts provide an insight into the mythology and folklore behind magical theory and practice. Now translated into readily accessible and simplified texts, the Handbook of Invocations is required reading for the uninitiated. A ‘recipe’ on the systems of magic that started during ancient times, these books are a must for the serious amateur or the professional student of religion or mysticism.
