I feel like some skill of mediumship should be achieved or a prerequisite before practicing conjuration. Else, how would you know you succeeded or failed or brought in something unintentional? Simply reading a book sometimes is not enough to prepare for this kind of thing.

Of course, if you have some ability with discerning, sensing, and communicating with spirits, and you know how to protect yourself and banish, I say go for it. :)

Ive learned strictly from books. It can be done but its no substitute for a teacher or experience. A teacher can be hard to find though and experience comes from doing the work.

In my experience with evocation all one needs is a strong entent. The only time i got sonething i didnt want from it was when i:
A, had doubts
And B, lacked certainty

Yes, I enjoyed doing the one for calling a White Dragon and am looking to do more of that.

What with that book, the university classes and some CH products like conjure a spirit for yourself we can all have a taste of conjuring for ourselves. But I stress that - from my point of view of course - this is a 'modern' type of approach to evocation /conjuration etc and differs significantly from what we can read about in old grimoires etc.

I am really impressed with the approach to these things that Creepy Hollows and other similar metaphysical sellers have. I've read quite a bit of what Magnolia and Ash and other long experienced forum users and practitioners have said on this forum and think it's worth acknowledging the distinction between this new approach and the old ways.

I completely agree with you about the older traditional texts and grimoires actually. There's so much new-age and modern stuff up on the internet and it reminds me of a lot of those getting into witchcraft purely through 'spells' posted on the internet versus what you can learn from members of a coven...formal training...etc etc. I had the chance of meeting the high priestess and her husband of a Gardnerian coven once and a lot of what they know is very similar to what Ash and Magnolia know. I think that's why I pretty much respect the posts they've made on their individual forum threads.
