Alex Sumner’s answer to I’m going to do a love spell to attract my true love. Is there anything I should know and any easy spells you could recommend? – Quora

Don’t think in terms of casting spells on other people. This is bad. (See: Alex Sumner’s answer to Why are love spells considered white magic?)

Instead, think in terms of casting a love spell on yourself – i.e. to transform yourself into the kind of person who can attract true love. Mind, though, you have to really transform. If a new lover enters your life and you haven’t changed in any way, you will still have the same luck that you’ve always had, so he will walk straight out again.

A simple spell might be to perform the Middle Pillar Ritual, and then breath bright Green light into your aura, so that is shines like an Emerald, whilst vibrating (i.e. chanting) “Yod Heh Vav Heh Tzabaoth.” (Emeralds and the colour green are traditionally associated with Venus, whilst the words chanted are the Divine Name associated with Venus in the Qabalah.)

Witchcraft in the Orkney Isles: The torture of Alesoun Balfour

In my book Eternal Witch, I feature as a side-plot the story of Alison [sic] Balfour, who lived on Mainland, the Orkney Isles, towards the end of the sixteenth century. This was a period during which Witch-hunts were prevalent in Scotland (King James VI, the future James I of England, was particularly eradicating them). So much so that ‘Witch’ became a dirty-word – calling someone a ‘Witch’ was tantamount to accusing them of being in league with the Devil, and also put them in serious danger of them being arrested, tortured and executed.

As with most Witch-hunts later in England, many of the women so accused were not witches in any sense of the word at all, but were in fact people whom their accusers did not like (e.g. they were Catholics instead of Protestants; they were caught up in an inter-family vendetta; etc).

Alison Balfour was unique amongst women accused of Witchcraft, in that, as a herbalist and ‘cunning-woman’ she was the closest thing to being a ‘Witch’ in the true sense of the word – i.e. a ‘Wise Woman.’ Moreover, her crime was not that of getting caught up in a falling-out between neighbours, but of being scapegoated during a politically-motivated murder plot. She protested her innocence vehemently – even under torture – and only made a confession (which she later retracted) when she was forced to watch her family being tortured in front of her.

When I first heard her story it struck me that Alison Balfour was probably the best example in the British Isles of a woman who was a genuine witch, and who used her skills and powers only to help people, yet who came to a bad end nonetheless because of the machinations of others (i.e. men).

Soccer Thugs Mistakenly Attack Black Magician

HOLBORN, LONDON: Football Hooliganism took a supernatural turn last night, when thugs attacked a man they believed was Croatian – only to find out that he was a notorious black magician and sorcerer instead.

Alex Sumner, 45, who is also a novelist and writer on the occult, and has a new book out at the moment, said in a statement:

“I was out at ‘The Happy Templar’ pub, which was noisy because of the game on. One of the guys asked me my favourite grimoire, to which I replied, ‘I’m a big fan of the Goetia.’

“Unfortunately, some upset England fans nearby overheard me and thought I said ‘I’m a big fan of Croatia -‘ and came after me with broken bottles.

“I quickly visualised the sigil of my favourite Spirit, Andromalius, and mentally repeated the demonic enn which summons him – and ran out of the pub, and across the road.

“The thugs tried following me – but immediately they were run over by an 18-wheeler articulated lorry that just so happened to be passing along Kingsway at that moment.”

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police, Detective Inspector Alan Crowley, said:

“Having reviewed the events of the evening, we are satisfied that Brother Sumner – ahem! I mean ‘Mr Sumner’ – did nothing wrong, and he has been released without charge. We take a dim view of soccer-related violence, and have arrested and charged the alleged attackers with offences under the Public Order Act – they will appear before local magistrates in due course.

“I should remind members of the general public that violence directed at someone because of their beliefs constitutes a Hate Crime. The Metropolitan Police will come down hard on anyone who discriminates against not only Goetic magicians, but also those who use other popular grimoires such as the Heptameron or Grimoirum Verum as well.”

Conjuring Demons for Love

The Goetia of the Lesser Key of Solomon the King

Romance is in the air. Something is in the air, at any rate, because several unusual things have been happening in the world lately. Anywho, by careful analysis of the traffic to my website I have come to the conclusion that most people who are interested in Black Magick are looking for LOVE (see my remarks on Zepar below). I have therefore decided to go through my notes on my favourite grimoire, the Goetia, and compile a list of all the Demons who are said to procure love in one form or another.

I should point out that over the years I have evoked all 72 of the spirits at one time or another, if for no other reason than to investigate what the spirit was all about. I do not work with all 72 spirits, because as a result of my investigations I have realised that I have an affinity with a small number but not with the rest. However, the small number that I do work with are satisfying enough for me to be getting on with.

It would be irresponsible of me not to point out that the elaborate safeguards described in the Goetia – the Circle, Triangle, the prescribed preparations and conjurations, etc – are all safeguards for ensuring that ceremonial magick is conducted safely and responsibly. However, the biggest safeguard is one not mentioned in the grimoire itself, and that is the Intent of the Magician. Goetic spirits are powerful. And dangerous. They are dangerous because they are powerful. If a magician went into a ceremony with a Bad Intention – or worse, a Badly-formed Intention – the results could be disastrous, and causing much evil as well.

As you read the notes below, you ought to realise that magick is not simply about getting laid. There are four words for Love in Greek – Agape (charitable love), Philia (love between friends and equals), Storge (love between parents and children), and Eros (romantic or sexual love): the spirits of the Goetia assist in procuring all four kinds, not just the last one. According to my own work with these spirits, they do not just indulge the capricious whims of the individual, but also help procuring love between peoples and nations as well.

Finally I should point out that I present these notes for information only. I personally have never resorted to any of these spirits for amatory purposes. I personally believe that the Law of Attraction pure and simple is far and effective, especially if you are trying to cosmically order a romantic partner at the same time that the romantic partner is cosmically ordering you.


Amon

7 Amon

‘…[H]e tells of all things past & to come, and procures love, and reconciles controversies between friends & foes…’

I personally noted that Amon’s imagery is primarily Mercurial, e.g. the Wolf and the Raven, even though a Marquis Amon would supposedly by associated with Luna. I would suggest that Amon be evoked in order to facilitate love through communication, or to put it another way, ‘gaming’ on the object of one’s affections.

12 Sitri

‘…[H]e puts on a humane shape very Beautiful, Inflaming Men with women’s Love, and women with men’s love, and causes them to shew themselves Naked, if it be desired…’

Unfortunately I haven’t got much or indeed any notes for working with Sitri, so for me this spirit didn’t create much of an impression.

13 Beleth

“This king Beleth causes all the love that possible may be, both of Men and women till the Master Exorcist hath had his mind fulfilled…”

I should advise caution when dealing with Beleth in regards to love. On the one hand Beleth’s influence can make one feel positive, and has a definite erotic tone to it as well. However: I also noted that Beleth has a dark side, being responsible for obsessive love, or the kind which is not real but an illusion or glamour.

15 Eligor

[H]e causes the love of Lords and great persons…’

I.e. probably more relevant to gaining power and influence than for Eros, per se. A ritual for evoking Eligor appears in Shall We Kill The President?

16 Zepar

‘… [H]is office is to cause women to love Men and to bring them together in love; he also makes them barren…’

Another post on my website mentioning Zepar seems to get an unhealthy amount of clicks on it, although it is not about Zepar per se but Goetia in general. I must assume that there are a goodly amount of perverts visiting this site who want to get laid but do not want the hassle of fathering children. Guys, the magic word you are really looking for is ‘contraception’ – look it up some time, you will also be helping to stop the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases.

‘Well, hello! Is that a crocodile you’re sitting on, or are you just pleased to see me?’

19 Saleos

‘He causes the love of women to men & men to women…’

I noted when evoking him that I could psychically detect Saleos’ erotic influence, which to my mind make him potentially a powerful demon to conjure.

25 Glasya-Labolas

‘He … tells all Things past & to come, if desired, & causes love of friends and foes…”

Glasya-Labolas is a formidable demon: I noted that when I evoked him I experienced several spontaneous Out-of-Body-Experiences afterwards. However, Glasya-Labolas is also feted as ‘an author of bloodshed and manslaughter,’ so clearly all is not sweetness and light with this Spirit.

‘…[H]e makes men to be beloved of their foes as well as they be by their Friends…’

30 Forneus

‘…[H]e makes men to be beloved of their foes as well as they be by their Friends…’

Forneus is actually said to appear in the form of a ‘sea-monster’ – in my magical record I noted that he is the real-life inspiration behind stories of Great Cthulhu, so perhaps not one to be evoked to visible appearance on a regular basis.

33 Gaap

‘..[H]e can cause love or hatred…’

One for the highschool sweethearts out there. Gaap appeared to my mental vision as a mediaeval doctor, which is not dissimilar to the garb that doctors of learning still wear at graduation ceremonies at modern universities. Although the evocation was pleasant at the time, I note that in my dream-life it stirred up memories of my own thoughts and feelings regarding my time at school – suggesting that Gaap can lead one to resolve issues relating to that time in one’s life.

Furfur

34 Furfur

‘He … will willingly make love between man & wife…’

I.e. in the sense of causing love – if one were in any doubt. I personally noted that Furfur’s main power is that of raising Thunder, Lightning, Blasts and great Tempestuous storms.’ My main experience of this was in the form of psychic Lightning etc – not to be weaponised against others, but to explode one’s own Ego in a great blast of self-transformation.

40 Raum

‘[H]is office is … to cause Love between friends & foes…’

Raum is a powerful spirit. His reputed powers, which include stealing treasure out of kings’ houses, along with his ability, have caused many to invest him with their hopes and thus their collective energy. I noted when evoking him that he is in fact not just some spirit to help people get laid, but has great potential to cause social change – help make the world a better place, and so forth.

Vual

47 Vuall

‘[H]is office is to procure the love of women…’

In my magical record I appear to have written VUALL IS POWERFUL in underlined capitals (which would normally mean that I got a strong psychic contact when first evoking him). So powerful in fact that Vual could potentially bring about world peace!

Gemory

56 Gemory

‘She*… procures the love of women, both young & old…’

* Although in the original text Gemory is described with masculine terminology, this demon is also described as appearing in the form of a ‘beautiful woman.’ One must remember that this inelegance of language is due to the fact that this grimoire was written over four hundred years before political correctness, when there were only four Genders, Sociology was not considered a subject, and being described as ‘home-schooled’ implied that you were of noble birth and had received a decent education in your father’s castle or palace.

But I digress.

The powers of the spirits of the Goetia often seem to be removed from reality as regards ordinary men and women in the street – e.g. blasting cities with lightning bolts, raising armies – what good is that? This has led some to believe that these are metaphorical – however, this is not the case. They are meant literally – they are powers which would have proved useful to a King or nobleman, who, at the time the grimoire was written, would, apart from those educated in a monastery, would have been the only people capable of being able to read such a grimoire! This is why when one reads old grimoires, one can discern that they fall into one of two camps – either ‘Royal’ or ‘Sacerdotal’ i.e. they assume that the intended reader is either of royal or noble birth (such as the Goetia of the Lesser Key of Solomon), or that they have a priestly or clerical background (such as the Heptameron or Sworn Book of Honorius).

In this sense, a nobleman would turn to Gemory to seek help in finding a woman of noble birth, fit to be a princess – this being a major concern of the nobility at the time.

On a more prosaic level, I note that I had vivid astral phenomena of a not-unpleasant nature occur to me after I evoked Gemory, so I rather suspect him – or her – to be a powerful spirit.

71 Dantalion

‘[H]e can cause love…’

While this may be true, I noted that Dantalion’s power of thought control to be more significant. On the benign side one might be able to direct that power inwards upon oneself, in order to achieve perfect mastery of concentration. On the less attractive side it would suggest that Dantalion tends to cause love by unpalatable means.

What the Stars Have In Store For… Gareth Southgate

Gareth Southgate, England Manager

Gareth Southgate was born on 3rd September 1970, in Watford, Hertfordshire, in England. Birth time unknown (as far as I can find out), so I have approximated it to 12 noon for the purpose of computing his horoscope, as follows:

Gareth Southgate, 3rd September 1970, Watford, Herts, 12 noon (approximated).

This may be briefly analysed thus:

Gareth is a mastermind and a healer, but his emotions are rather whimsical. Friendship is what makes him emotionally happy.

He thinks in a fruitful way, but can communicate his thoughts and needs in an impatient way, and might often be hasty and impulsive – in doing so going against his natural inclination for patience and caution.

He expresses his energy in an efficient way: when he becomes angry, he can become violent. He prefers to stand out in a crowd than to follow. He should watch for a tendency to be stubborn or dogmatic, which can impede his progress in life and cause unnecessary delays or obstacles.  He can be very temperamental, but he tends to get over things quickly.

In love he will be thoughtful and he seeks support.

Attracts the most good fortune he puts his “all” into a project or undertaking, and uses his magnetic powers to heal others. Enthusiastic for deeper studies and meanings, all that is taboo or mysterious, psychology. Values decisiveness, intensity, willpower, commitment, and strength. Very strong problem solver who cuts to the chase.

You are very persistent in carrying out your goals.  On the positive side, you are a tireless worker and have determination, discipline, organizing ability and can go the distance when those around you fall. Hard work is your forte. Your feelings are serious, well-controlled and not easily changed, although at times it may be hard for you to forgive and forget. Loyalty is important to you. Building structures that last is a need you have.

Otherwise he has an easy, likeable charm: although he finds the Mr Nice-Guy image that the public have created for him both a blessing and a curse.

The celebrities he is most like, personality speaking, are fellow footballer-turned-manager Ruud Gullit, English monarch Richard the Lionheart … and Tsar Ivan The Terrible.

(l-r), Gullit, Lionheart, Terrible.

How can you time travel in a lucid dream? (Quora.com)

(A2A) I tried this once, and was pleasantly surprised by how successful it was! The basic technique is the same as how you do anything in a lucid dream: by carefully using self-suggestion before going to sleep one can influence the content of one’s dream. In this case I gave myself the suggestion: “I am able to travel through time whilst dreaming.”

So I fell asleep, started dreaming and became Lucid. I then willed myself to travel forward in time, imagining that I was physically going to a place where I knew I would be meeting someone in real life the next day. Once I got there I noticed what they were doing, how they were behaving, etc. Eventually I woke up.

So I then went to this actual meeting. The other person was completely unaware that anything supernatural has occurred or was occurring. But they did behave in the way I had observed them behaving in my lucid dream.

So one may argue that I didn’t physically travel through time and space whilst lucid dreaming. However, I do believe that the very act of at least attempting to do so gave me some knowledge of the future.
