Its a rare day when I get the writing bug during the Witching Hour, but for the moment, I find myself a bit entranced by the allure and pull of a spirit I know well.
Some of you may know of her as a "he" rather than a "she", and some of you may not know of this entity at all; in the Miracle of New Avatar Power by Geoff Gray Cobb, this spirit is called, simply, Elubatel.
For those of you who have worked with her, I don't think I need to stress just how damned effective she is at her job. For those of you who are unaware and unfamiliar with her, however, it is worth noting that she is a spirit who the text implies will bring one's intentions to successful fruition....one heck of a noticeable function, ain't it?
Ironically, its also something that goes more-or-less unnoticed in the magical world....I guess it just seems, well, too simple and not grandiose. That is, until you really begin to think on and understand the implications of such workings.
Now, I've talked about Elubatel previously; about how I experienced depression when working with her. About how she wasn't always the easiest to get on with. In reality, my difficulty came from within me, as I've come to realize over the past few months.
What I've also come to realize is that working with her was also a resounding success, even when the results manifested sneakily over a year after the working was done.
With that said, I pen this post for the sake of imparting a bit of wisdom on how one should go about working with Elubatel for the best results.
For those of you who don't know what I mean, if you want to utilize the seal above, clear your temple's space, then print or draw it out on a consecrated piece of paper. And yes, I would recommend creating a new one each and every time you work with her.
After doing so, I anoint a candle in charged and consecrated Abramelin, Cinnamon, or Bergamot oil, from the wick down, and then say a prayer to my Agathosdaimon, in effect invoking my Self as a Divine Being rather than as an incarnate human. From there, I proceed to place the candle on top of the sigil, light it, then pour her a shot glass' worth of holy water and place it on top of the sigil, in front of the burning candle.
This is where Will comes in, as I simply Will her to appear in the candle's reflection through the holy water while saying a prayer of intention and calling like so:
AIO, IOA, OAI, IAO
Vaki Elubatel, Vaki eða visa tu!
Ek vitki kveðja tu'um
Stir and waken
Stir and appear
Stir and show thyself as I command
Repeat your conjuration as many times as you need til she appears. You'll know when it happens, as either she'll make it clear through the Sight or something strange will happen with the candle and make it readily apparent, depending on your ability or lack thereof.
When she's appeared, run through the usual tests to ensure that she is actually there and verify that the spirit is who it indicates it is, then relay your charge in a manner like so:
Elubatel, heaven-sent glory-bringer
Hear me and obey, for I am the Son of the Master
I deem it wise for you to bring me success in the matters of my choosing
Go forward and bring my ventures pertaining to [what you need her to assist in] to successful fruition post-haste
I seal this command and conjuration by the Holy Name Yud Heh Vau Heh
And the power the Tetragrammaton embodies
My will be done on Earth as the Master's is done in Heaven
So mote it be!
Have fun, and happy conjuring!
