Exorcizing the Beast

Since the earliest times, people believed in magick. The Paleolithic man thought he could influence the Gods through chant, dance, and sacrifice. Later people revered Magi or Wise men who used astrology to predict the future.

Some cultures believed in oracles, some in casting sticks or water scrying, but most had a deep respect for magick. Although the Christian church condemns "sorcery" and magick as the work of the devil, the Catholic clergy practiced it widely until the Reformation.

Albertus Magnus was a Bishop and conjuror, and Thomas Aquinas was his pupil. Roger Bacon, a well-known sorcerer, was a monk, and Pico Mirandola was a Kabbalist. St. Augustine practiced divination by lots. Hildebrand was a magician, Pope Sylvester II was a proven sorcerer and Cardinal Wolsey was an alchemist.

Catherine de Medici even employed the services of a Jacobean Priest who murdered for her by means of incantations, effigies, and necromancy. Interestingly enough, the Catholic church had a service of exorcism in its prayer book until fairly recently. It was an important source of revenue for the Church for centuries.

The Exorcism Spell of Imprisonment

This method will not only expel the malevolent spirit from the victim’s body, but it will also transfer the spirit to an inanimate object so that it can be trapped.

First, you need to have as much information as possible about the spirit. This includes the spirit’s name and what is its purpose. You need to know if the spirit has higher powers and if it’s related to one of the four elements of nature more than the others. This information will be used to write an incantation to expel the entity, by taking advantage of the entity's weaknesses.

In addition to the incantation, you will need an object to contain the entity, a small stone should do it. You will also need a sheet of paper to write the entity's name. If you don’t know the name or it has not been revealed to you, you can use a symbol or design to represent the entity. This paper will be burned during the ritual, using a candle dedicated entirely for this purpose.

Perform the imprisonment ritual as follows :

Recite the incantation, while setting fire to the paper where the entity’s name or symbol has been written. Drop the object, chosen for the entity’s imprisonment onto the embers. This will allow the object to absorb the spirit. Pour candle wax on the object to seal it. After the spirit is trapped, you can symbolically destroy the object by throwing it into a consecrated fire. A fire can be consecrated by sprinkling salt into the flames while blessing them.

As I have illustrated in previous lessons, evil entities are not Demons, but sludge entities that feed on an individual’s state of being. When dealing with this topic it is always good to remember what Nietzsche said "He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee."
