A set of ritual practices used to conjure, communicate with and control angels, daimons, devas, genies, and other personifications of the elements, planets, and stars.
In the Middle Ages many books of evocation were written, giving detailed instructions for the summoning of supernatural entities, such as angels, but most had an emphasis on infernal forces. These books were commonly known as grimoires. Simply put, grimoires were detailed books of conjurations, charms, magic rituals and spells, usually providing instructions on how to make magical objects such as protective amulets and talismans, and often invoking spirit entities, angels and/or demons.
Today some practices such as meditation, breathing exercises and prayer are growing in popularity. In reality, we are rediscovering our spiritual roots and laying claim to an ancient heritage that has been lost for centuries.
The Book of Enoch describes some of the angels as being so huge that they extend beyond the galaxies, and the seven great archangels are identified as stars created by God at the moment of Creation. Would this actually indicate that angels are cosmic forces with intelligence and purpose? Some modern astrophysicists, like Australian Paul Davies, are beginning to suspect just that. Under this light, to invoke angels, would in reality be an attempt to reestablish contact with the creative forces of the universe.
