How to Invoke Spirits

When you hear the phrase invoking spirits, some people automatically think evil spirits. Invoking spirits doesn’t always mean they have to be evil spirits. Peaceful spirits can also be invoked, and so are deities, gods, goddesses and ancestors. This can be done by chanting prayers that are sincere as well as peaceful responses. Addressing the Spirit with our prayers brings it into our life and guides us throughout our daily life and actions.

Summoning and invoking is an advanced form of spellwork. Whether a Spirit, God, Goddess, or Deity can be summoned is debatable. Do not take invoking an entity who may not wish to be summoned lightly.  When considering summoning such a high-frequency entity—frequency is the vibrational level at which an entity operates—be sure to do complete preparatory research about the Patron.

DividerThe Importance of a Distinct Purpose for Invocation

Many beginning practitioners either think they have nothing to worry about or that they might study too much; either extreme is dangerous, as either may freeze the practitioner’s confidence. The other hand of advice falls after the Patron is summoned: Have a distinct purpose in mind. Knowing your purpose will help focus, and strengthen, the attempt or ritual.

To be precise, a Patron listens when its attention is drawn to your presence. Otherwise, if its attention is to be had, you probably already have it. A Patron is not all-encompassing, but, whatever the denomination in question (e.g., Christianity, Voodoo, Wicca, Santeria, Obeah), each has a sphere of influence (e.g., love, war, death, a chosen people).


Ritual to Invoke a Spirit, Deity, God or Goddess

Before starting any rite or ritual, make sure you are clean spiritually. Meditating before hand can be a benefit to you and prepare you for your ritual. You can do these rituals for many different reasons. People do them for money, as love potion, health, peace, guidance and many more reasons. Couples who are trying to conceive may do these rituals for fertility reasons to help them have a child.

An important step to take in the beginning, is to ask the spirit you are praying to for guidance. You can do this by simply praying to them. Make sure that you are always thankful to them and show kindness for the help they do give you.

Don’t take protection lightly!

Asking for protection from the spirits is a must. This is done to protect you from evil spirits and make sure you surround yourself with a white light and you can do this by using your mind power and just try imagining that you are enclosed in a white light. Sincerity and kindness should be in your heart during this whole process. Imagine that the light is surrounding your whole body in all directions. The light will protect you.

Also, take 40 candles and place them around you in a huge circle as this gives an extra step in protecting you from evil spirits. Sitting in he middle of this circle is required as again this circle protects you.

The chant that should be said can vary with each ritual. An example that most people tend to follow is

As I stand before you, almighty spirit, Bless me with the wisdom to understand you, Grant me access to your kingdom so that I may communicate with you, Keep me safe as I enter your domain to ask answers of you, Surround me with the light of grace and the divine guide as I enter your plane, I invoke you, oh great spirit.

And then following you can start to look for answers from the spirits.

How to End the Invocation Ritual

After you are done with all the answers you are seeking, again be sure to give thanks to the spirit and thank them for letting you ask questions and for their cooperation. The candles should continue to burn until they go out and then dispose of them. Never reuse them for another ritual.


Easy Spell to Invoke a Spirit, Deity, God or Goddess

Most everyone has, at one point or another, the need to either summon a spirit, ancestor, deity, god or goddess. There are many different names you can call a patron, some even call them guardian angels or ghosts. Spirits will show themselves to you when you are open and ready to receive them. However, if you feel that time is now and you are in need to ask the spirit for help, you can cast this Spirit Invocation Spell to open the lines of communication. This spell is best cast Wednesday during a full or dark moon.

Ingredients for the Spirit Invocation Ritual

  • You will need a gift for the spirit. This can be almost anything but food, drink or Tobacco are good choices.
  • White or silver candle
  • Sage smudge stick
  • 1 cup of salt

How to Cast the Spirit Invocation Spell

You will want to be sure that there are no negative energies around or on you for this spell. Prepare a cleansing bath by running tepid water in the tub and add a cup of salt to the water. Soak in the bath for at least twenty minutes. Dry off and dress in something comfortable.

Cast your circle and be sure to call the quarters and ask for their blessing.

Light the sage and smudge yourself and the area within the circle to remove any lingering negative energies. Leave the sage burning.

Place the candle in a holder and put the gifts around it. Close your eyes and take some deep breaths. Focus on being open and welcoming. Light the candle and speak the incantation:

Spirit guide [or name of deity/patron]
I wait for you
With open mind
And open heart.


Spirit guide [or name of deity/patron]
I beckon you
With open hands
And willing spirit.


Spirit guide [or name of deity/patron]
I bring you gifts
To honor you
And welcome you.


Spirit guide [or name of deity/patron]
Please come to me
To share your wisdom
And guide my way.

Be silent and sit for as long as you feel you need to. When you are finished, thank the quarters for their blessing, release them and close the circle. Over the next few days, pay attention to any images that come in your dreams or your mind and pay attention to any voices that you hear.


Invoking Ancestors

By doing the same thing with our ancestors, we can decide whether or not to wake them from their peaceful eternal sleep or to leave them be. By waking them, we have the option to ask questions that we have wondered about that weren’t answered while they were alive. It’s important to remember never to invoke an evil spirit. This can be extremely dangerous and especially for those of you who have no experience or little experience. This can cause serious consequences to you and the people around you.


Warning Regarding the Invocation of Spirits

No matter what kind of answers you are looking for, you should always use caution and be sure to do thorough research before starting. You should always make sure you do not rush and do it correctly to avoid problems. It can be a very rewarding experience for some but if not done correctly, it can have consequences.


The Patron you Belong To

It’s said that “You may not believe in the Devil, but the Devil believes in you.” This means that you have a Patron that you “belong” to, whether or not you know who/what it is. Everybody, when they pass from this plane of existence, has somewhere they need to go that their soul or “spark of life” belongs. There are, however, two straightforward ways to summon, or make contact with, a Patron.

  1. Just talk. Talk in your head or out loud. As you talk, though, “address” your thoughts to the Patron you mean to choose by focusing on the look, syllables, and sound of the Patron’s name.
  2. Hold a ritual for the Patron you specifically wish to summon/contact.


Coven Tips

  • Alternatively, summoning can also be achieved by recognizing a Patron’s associations (e.g., favored animal, favored drink, favored holiday, etc.). Like attracts like.
  • So far, what has been described for summoning a Patron has been somewhat ambiguous—but why? Studied practitioners trust their intuition; without intuition, difficulty is found in following what stands as the “correct” path, or, the path of least resistance (in spite of the ease of events found on it). There is much about faith that cannot be proven through physical sight; practitioners, instead, have developed a hypersensitive “gut reaction” in which they trust what conclusions come to mind or emotion.
  • This reaction is a tool. With time and practice, like other skills, its accuracy is honed. In summoning a Patron—which, if the practitioner is inexperienced enough not to be able to differentiate the summoned entity in question from a lesser-frequency entity—a Circle should have been cast to safeguard the practitioner from the unexpected (e.g., impostor entities, energy flares or backlash, “piggyback” entities, etc.). Once main spellwork is finished, then the caster may close the Circle with as simple a phrase as “It is finished.”
