I am a huge fan of NAP and lately the MMG. Though condensed somewhat...ritual is not magic...it's what leads us to the inflamed state to which magick occurs (my opinion only). Invoking is key to evoking (thanks to my mate here who taught me this valuable lesson
) The NAP spirits are very old and well known spirits in terms of their appearance in older grimoires, esoteric writings and Kabbalah/Qabalah lore.
Anyway...long story short. Life has been rough of late and I have decided to use 4 of the rituals from the NAP and a total of 7 spirits. At once. 6 angels and 1 I am not so sure on...Every day. One at 8am/ the next at 12pm/ next at 5pm/ next at 10pm.
I have a consecrated parchment hexagram in a double circle with the angelic names in Paleo-Hebrew written around the circle. I have the petitions that I make in each ritual which I have beefed up to being just short of actual evocation to manifestation (if that makes sense ) written within the arms of the hexagram.
I have made 4 small cards on consecrated parchment upon which I have written the petitions (and the angelic names in Paleo-Hebrew on the reverse make to each set of spirits throughout the day. They are held within an envelope I have made from the same batch of parchment (consecrated as per old Solomonic style ritual). At night...I take out these four "cards" (which I have carried with me and used throughout the day) place them on the "wheel" as I have come to call it...and a massive blue candle burns in the centre. Angelica Root is placed at certain points.
Each night I do some deeper work and take it way past what is standard for the NAP and at a certain point address all 7 at once through evocation based on an older style of work. I'm not 100% they're keen on what I am doing but no one has said to stop...so we'll see.
Now I know this is very much my own thing and not "NAP pure" ...in fact, this is NOT how I'd normally work at all...but I thought I'd share what I'm doing with you all and I'll let you know how it went once the course is run. Not really going to give updates on the actual workings until they're done. I'm sure y'all understand that. I just thought there might be some interest in using some license with our magical workings.
(PS...the earthenware pot is full of small stones and I usually have a charcoal disc and burn my special blend incense in there. It had run it's course before I took the shot. The seal at the top in-front of the pot is that of an archangel I work with often.
