Alright, so I have decided that at some point after discussing the basics an outline for actual works needs to be laid out. Here is a five tier/twenty conjuration tier system that I have been studying, but is not of my own creation. Now this system does not require you to adhere to any specific belief system and can be tailored to your personal preferences. I will not provide every step just the outline for what needs doing. It?s up to you to figure out how to do it. Also, a journal should be kept to mark the passing through of each conjuration at each level. The proving grounds for the conjurations herein are the social and business places of the witch. It is important to keep interests around outside of one?s magical practices.
` To begin I will explain how the system works. There are five conjurations Evocation, Divination, Enchantment, Invocation, and Illumination. Each conjuration should be completed before moving on to the next tier as each plays a role as you move on. As you move from Sorcery, the most physically based, to Astral, the most psychically based, will have a different level of each of the conjurations. As you move upward through the tiers you will be attempting to break down the barrier between the conscious mind and the subconscious and move from one state of mind to the next. It is advisable to have a journal where you can make note of the accomplishments of each conjuration on each tier and completing the set of five before moving on to the next tier.
Evocation is working with independent spirits (Wights, Demons, Angels, Egregores, etc.) to achieve results, generally through divination and enchantment. Divination is any attempt to glean information otherwise unknowable, through a magical medium. Enchantment is any attempt through any magical means for a witch to enforce his or her will on reality. Invocation, generally working with god-forms (These god-forms usually taking the form of pagan deities) which allows the witch to be a horse to empower enchantment or help working towards divinatory ends. Finally, illumination is the strengthening of one?s self through the machinations of enchantment.
