Ritual Night Talk for September 15

Here is the video of last night's Ritual Night Talk, covering containment and targeting.

I've had a couple of questions come up recently about containment structures and how they work, and adding in comments on magical links that can be used for targeting operations seems like a natural fit. Using both of these methods well can result in far more effective rituals in terms of practical results.

Hi Scott, I'm a big fan of your blog so far! These ritual night talks are some of the most informative and immediately digestible esoteric content I've ever seen.

If you're able to, next time you do a ritual night talk, could you go into detail about spirit communication during evocation?

Oh, and a little on pathworking, since it seems to be integral to the technique for communication?

Tips on what to do, what kinds of information you can get from the spirits, optimum communication length, etc. Would be much appreciated!

Also, specifics on the technique of gematria for a word a spirit gives for confirmation, I get that if a spirit gives a number like 63, you can look it up in sepher sephiroth for meaning, but I'm not sure how to apply this to the complete magicians tables, as it's number scale doesn't go up to 63, unless you use gematria, which I'm unclear on how specifically to apply.

Any information on these subjects would be pretty cool.

Sure. The ones that I specifically mentioned are the Trithemian table from The Art of Drawing Spirits into Crystals, the Sigillum Dei Aemeth from John Dee's Enochian work, and the Triangle of Art from the Lemegeton's Goetia.

We are doing the elixir rite tonight, but I can talk about spirit communication and pathworking the week after. They are related, especially with how I go about scrying and the like.

Don't use The Complete Magicians Tables as your generic gematria lookup. Get something like Godwin's Cabalistic Encyclopedia. Using Magicians Tables is like trying to do all your gematria according to the key scales in Liber 777, which can be useful as far as it goes but only goes up to 32.

Oh, and sorry about the delete, Eli. I clicked on the wrong thing there trying to remove the duplicate comment after yours. My answer to your question is in my previous post.

Cool. Thanks for the response, I'll see if I can get a hold of a copy.

Sorry about the duplicate comment, I thought blogger was acting up and didn't realize the comments had to be approved.
