Last night I had a rather curious dream. I dreamt that I was conducting an evocation rite of some kind in a strange abandoned mansion. But what was so unusual was that instead of calling four watchtowers I called three, creating a triangular arrangement with water, air, and fire. I then called earth below the circle and finally called down ether/spirit from above which formed a ray that penetrated down into the earth, seemingly activating the entire configuration.
The elements were furious, swirling tornadoes of elemental substance - except for earth which was dark and dense and cold. Finally a luminous angelic figure appeared before me. Except this angel was this strange kind of cosmic samurai - although thats not exactly how i would describe him either - there certainly was an alien/asian/knight esthetic there nonetheless. He gave me his name but I cannot recall it clearly.
Most curious of all is that my style of ritual rarely involves opening the watchtowers or angels! I am considering using my pendulum to divine the spirit's name and trying the ritual as per my dream to see if i can contact him again. I remember the first letters and the general feel of the name; so who knows maybe after all of my critical indifference regarding angelic contacts one decides to talk to me. Go figure.
