Now I am veeery new to all this and am doing some reading on the matter, but could use some advise if you could bear with my very amateur and (do doubt) incredibly silly questions.
When it comes to evocating Beleth or any of the other nine Kings, some book and practitioners offer very complicated rituals with very specific offerings to get anywhere close as well as putting on the paper exactly what it is you want.
On the other hand, others - that it is sometimes simply enough to inviting the said Spirit in your mind and there is no ritual required. As long as you're relaxed, not afraid and genuinely want to encounter them, it will work. And one doesn't need to specifically write of say what they want in a very clear way - the Spirit already knows as it feels your emotions, and, if youe very lucky, briefly passes through you.
The only thing the two sides seem to agree on is -
1) Don't be afraid;
2) Know that you can do it - not think 'did it work? Is anything happening? I can't see anything;'
3)Know that Spirit is not a servant and you yourself are strong, you'e no slave;
4)Don't just leave it half way. When you'e done speaking with the Spirit, thank it and say goodbye to it to let it go.
Now, I have not attempted any of the above before, but I wish to try. What are your thoughts on it and how do you, personally, approach it?
