I hope you're not expecting to sit across the table from somebody with red skin and sign a contract, because that doesn't happen.
You can invoke spirits- in the sense that you can summon hatred or compassion as things that exist independent of you that you can tune into even when
they are not growing out of you naturally.
You can assist this with music, with deeds, with association to related people. places, and events, and with rituals that evoke a certain mindset and
reinforce certain kinds of behavior.
This is a gradual, willing spiritual process very similar to developing a relationship with Jesus Christ, and you should expect results on the same
order- the occasional unexplained miracle according to reports but mostly it changes your focus and makes you start to behave unusually and have
different perceptions and experiences more than it changes your actual circumstances.
And you have to know what you want. This is all about focus and will power. You can't just summon a one size fits all demon from the infernal temp
office- you have to cultivate an understanding of the particular spirit you want to experience, whether as a named entity with a whole dogma built
around him or just as a dimension of your own persona you want to expand.
If you are envisioning yourself being the classic anti-christ image of the sophisticated, cold, manipulative, covertly advantaged people-consumer who
nobody can see through or stop, well you're aiming high, but you're going to need to understand the fine motives and mechanics and downsides and
interactions of the spiritual states that make the real people such fictional images represent- you'll have to truly understand and embrace and train
in greed, deceit, cheating, dominance, exploitation, and cruelty as values, as a lifestyle, and as an intellectual obsession- do them with your body
mind and soul every day in an organized and purposeful way.
If you envision a more beastly aggressive you, that's a different set of values and practices.
It's really not as exciting as it sounds- magic is science and spirituality is self help- just with better metaphors and less literal understanding of
why our physical and intellectual labor accomplishes the goal.
