Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Ancient grimoires say that spirits can grant magicians remarkable things—supernatural abilities, the location of hidden treasure, the admiration of others, and all forms of knowledge—making it clear why the practice of evocation has maintained its hold on the minds of magicians all over the world.

The truth, however, is that few practicing magicians actually do evocations. That may be because although many of the books talk about evocation, they don't describe how to actually perform evocations. For this reason, Summoning Spirits by Konstantinos is more useful than any other book, including the ancient grimoires, when it comes to evocation of spirits. It is the only book you'll ever need to learn this esoteric art, and it is the only book that covers every aspect of magical training necessary to obtain results. Even if you've never worked with magic before, you can safely perform evocations after practicing the techniques in Summoning Spirits.

Evocation is a positive, beneficial, and safe practice that puts you in touch with a limitless source of knowledge about the physical and spiritual universe. Read Summoning Spirits and discover how evocation can change your life.

I have been studying Magicknow for around 10 years, and have come across LOADS of books about the theory and practice of the subject. I have been through the armchair-phase, the practicing-phase, the back to armchair, the back to practicing several times now. The enduring problem that I have come across in my development is what this book presents widely,freely and openly:<B>NO ASSUMPTIONS!!</B>
The author speaks from his own experiences when explaining the whys, and gives step-by-step directions when explaining the hows. And I can tell the newcomers to Magic(k) that this is rare indeed!
One note to beginners:Dont believe the author's time-frames for how long each exercise should be practised. Each of the beginning exercises are in themselves giant. You just try that first one about emptying the mind of thoughts! I learned that the goals of this book are many more than the final evocation of a spirit: And believe me, these entities are REAL!

Format: Paperback
Excellent primer on evoking entities for the intermediate magick practitioner. Unlike many books of its kind, I believe that Konstantinos' book will be applicable for many types of practitioners. That being said, I don't agree with the author who was bothered by Konstantinos' suggestion to focus on benevolent entities, nor do I agree that those who prefer not to go near the nastier entities are 'fluff bunny pagans'. While this breed does exist (I've met quite a few perky cheerleader-Witch types), I hardly think that choosing to avoid certain more malevolent entities is akin to denying the dark side of one's life, spiritual and otherwise. I also think that the author's suggestion was just a SUGGESTION, not a condescending fluffbunny dictate. I know many don't follow the Wiccan Rede, but I do--and that usually led me away from many evocation books which for the most part focused A LOT on the Goetic entities. This one seemed to have something for those like me who chooses to use my practices either for positive spiritual goals (at my most lofty--and for this, I loved the selection on evoking the Angels, Archangels and Earth entities)or (at my most 'low magick')to improve my life without harming others. It seems too many authors in Pagan/Wiccan/high or ceremonial magic genres tend to go to extremes--either turn the ritual into a Grateful Dead peace'n'love for all no matter what be-in, or compete for who can be the most eager to prove the now-debunked, formerly popular notion that all pagans/witches/magicians are evil/in communication with demons/scary, etc. Finally, a book that is the happy medium. And for those who dismiss the idea of evoking angelic entities, you don't know what you're missing.

If you are interested in summoning up elementals,Planetary spirits, Angels and Goetic beings this is the book to get. Though I do a diffrent ceremony for goetic spirits. I do use the methods in this book for the other beings. The auther gives very good and solid information on the Elementals, Angels, Planetary spirits and Goetic beings. But dont be decieved sometimes evoking these beings are not very easy at all. Be prepared for successes as well as failures. This is a great book to get on the subject of evoking these forces.

Format: Paperback
This book will give the beginer an excellent foundation to start evocation. The author draws on several old world texts and simplifies them so that the every day "Joe" can grasp the concepts.
I began my first works in evocation with the Golden Dawn material. However, "Summoning Spirits" gave me a clearer understanding of this working.
The first spirit I summoned from this book was the archangel Michael. Although I didn't "see" the spirit in the crystal, I could sense the presence and there was a sweet smell. As I continued to evoke various entities, my life began to improve. I had been very ill and was in a bad situation; in fact, I nearly died at one point. But thanks to the contents of this book, my life gradually improved, and today I have to say my health and life have improved 210%. (I must also credit the
People of the Orisha and the African baba who helped me, too).
This is a terrific book...however, if you're going to evoke a spirit, make sure you're reasons are very clear. Don't just do it to see if you can.

Format: Paperback
"Summoning Spirits" is the one of best books I have read so far in regards to the ancient and powerful art of magickal evocation. Although I have only just recently purchased this book, I have found it to be very informative, educational and interesting. As an individual aspiring to master this ancient magickal art, and science, I had found Konstantinos's advice and guidance quite beneficial about only working with benevolent spirits such as Angelic, Planetary and Elementary entities. However, I will be looking forward to summoning the Goetic entities as well, as I believe that a magician should have a 'magickal and spiritual balance' between both benevolent and malevolent entities, in addition to mastering them. All in all, a great book for a magician wishing to practice magickal evocation. In addition, I am especially looking forward to evoking the divine and beautiful Archangels and striving to unite and become 'one' with Divinity, which Konstantinos mentions is the 'true' defintion and purpose of magick. A truly magickal and spiritually inspiring book. I know that I will always enjoy and value keeping it as part of my personal magickal library to cherish, reflect upon, and treasure the ancient magickal wisdom and power within it.
Good magick to all,
