Update: Never summon the Goetikon for violent purposes other than self-defense. Even justified revenge is a huge no-no with this entity.
A metagod is a unified consciousness consisting of two or more independently extant deities. Amun-Ra, Lidagon, Hermaphrodite, Hermanubis, etc. are all examples of metagods, and a metagod really is two actual spirits merging together, kinda like the characters in Dragon Ball Z, but hopefully without the dance. The conjuration of metagods was a common magickal practice and is delineated all throughout the Graeco-Egyptian Papyri.
The most influential metagod in modern demon magick is Chavajoth, a metagod composed of the Qliphoth’s eleven reigning deities. While these eleven gods do manifest as eleven separate entities, they also occasionally manifest as a singular divinity which appears (to me) as an eleven-headed black dragon. Another prominent example of metagods in demon magick was provided by the author of Liber Sitra Ahra in his descriptions of the “demonic armies” of the Qliphoth. A “demonic army” is a collective of demons, which collective consists of members with uniform or appearingly uniform faculties and appearance, which is particular to a Tunnel of Set (a pathway between two Qliphothic spheres). Before Liber Sitra Ahra, every Demonologist to date had described the demonic armies as multitudes of demons. Whenever we called forth a demonic army, we’d get two or more identities that looked alike. But the author of Liber Sitra Ahra witnessed the Qliphothic armies appearing as singular deities– metagods in the forms of massive black dragons.
Someone I used to know recounted to me a time when the 72 demons of the Ars Goetia appeared to him as a single black dragon. You likely already know that the appearance of a demon is a metaphor for its faculties. In my experience, the only demons (or demonic metagods) who appear as quadruped black dragons are the most transcendent infernal deities. Examples include Satan, Chavajoth, and of course, the metagod of the Goetia. At its core, the Goetikon is essentially formless, so the magickian approaching it should not limit it, by way of preconception, to any given form.
The experience of the person who told me about the Goetikon was backed up by my personal gnosis and experience as well as gnosis channeled by a third party from Sepheranz. I’m more than experienced enough not to need confirmation that this entity is not an egregore, but I say this for the audience.
The Nature of the Goetikon
The Goetikon is far more powerful than Chavajoth for obvious reasons. There are three demons which are obviously in both Chavajoth and the Goetikon– Astaroth, Asmodeus, and Bael. Since my gnosis and that of a former friend both confirm Mark Allan Smith’s gnosis that Belial and Baelzebuth are the entity, I would prefer to say that four demons that I know of are in both metagods.
Chavajoth, the Goetikon, and all 80 individual demons could appear on the same football field separately. In this scenario, Astaroth, for example, would be perceiving the field from all three perspectives and processing them with a single mind. I have evoked the Goetikon to the point of visible manifestation. I got it to manifest pretty clearly too– it was closer to physical than most of the demons I usually summon appear as (I worked with the Goetikon a lot before that). I’ve invoked it a few times, which was quite a trial– as many spirits you invoke will tell you how many more times you are to invoke them, I was instructed by the Goetikon to stop after the fourth invocation.
I have an idol to the Goetikon which does act the same way that my idols to demons usually do, but I think it’s pretty clear that the idol is less effective than my idols for demons usually are because of the size of the entity the idol contains. The ways that I have gotten the Goetikon to manifest would be very difficult for most, but for me, it was easy, if only for my preparations– save for the invocations.
Samael is the entity who rides upon the Goetikon, Samael being the Qabalistic name for the aspect of the metagod I call the Devil who resides beyond the Qliphoth alongside Ustrina and Hecate. The Goetikon is a violent, wrathful, destructive, and invincible creature. He collaborates and conspires at length with Chavajoth.
The Goetikon can help one self-initiate through all 10 Qliphothic spheres as well as Da’ath. When it comes to magickal violence, the Goetikon should only be called upon to cause harm for the purposes of immediate magickal self-defense and the protection of others from serious upcoming threats– but only call it for the second purpose with confirmation that it will work. The second purpose does not need to remove magickal threats specifically. Even calling the Goetikon for justified retaliation or some kind of vigilante-style execration is a horrible idea with bad consequences. It is unclear to me whether or not these consequences are caused deliberately by the Goetikon or whether they are the result of damage to the psyche, some combination of both, or neither. Either way, the least severe potential consequence which was listed was uncontrollable self-mutilation.
Working with the Goetikon for self-empowerment is wonderful. Vibrating the secret name of the universe for self-empowerment is wonderful. Doing both in one ritual will create an atmosphere you can’t stomach. A colleague of mine and I would both describe it as like having a physical tentacle move in your stomach.
Protecting people is one of the Goetikon’s primary functions, but it only does so when asked to. Below you will find two sigils. I created and consecrated the first sigil and, assuming that the Goetikon would accept any other sigil created for it, requested a better sigil be designed by my audience. Until 4/26/18, the sigil my friends designed was only half as powerful as the one I drew, but the Goetikon has linked the three symbols (three including the artistic version of the second sigil) together, such that they are all, energetically speaking, the same sigil after I offered some incense sticks– dragon’s blood was the most appropriate.
Above: My Original Sigil for the Goetikon
The sacred numbers of the Goetikon are 97, 87, 94, 37, 68, 35, and 91.
*The dichotomy between a Right Hand Path and a Left Hand Path originated in heretical denominations of Hinduism, and the terminology came to be borrowed by magickal authorities in the West. Unfortunately, many modern black magickians have pontificated at length about which philosophies and spiritual practices are and are not LHP and polluted the concept of the LHP to an extent at which it’s basically a useless term. Many black magickians claim that worship is an RHP practice, but a brief look at where the LHP actually comes from will show that the LHP has, in truth, always been a path of religious devotion. In my opinion, the LHP-RHP dichotomy has no place in Western religion or magick and I only use the term LHP as a very general, loosely-defined title for black magickal religions in general (it’s basically a convenient slang term to me).
Magickal Chants to the Goetikon
Goetikon + Khaosophoros + Goessabbim + Xulogos + Aeonifer + Semolshedim + Diabalachara + Ala-Mashavah + Rimkaggaggathal + Limkallaggor + Goetikon
This is a name-vibration paragraph which the magickian may vibrate to call forth the Goetikon. All of the names from Khaosophoros to Ala-Mashavah are invented magickal god-names which I have spiritually charged & consecrated such that they may be used as magickal god-names for any demon, any demonic metagod, and any selection of demons. After the last invented magickal name, “Ala-Mashavah,” two of the Goetikon’s secret names which I channeled appear. (Note: channeled secret names should only be used in ritual, never in mundane conversation, and are not to be revealed to the unitiated. These two, however, I have been given permission to post)
“Hail the Chaos-Bearing Metagod of the Goetia!” I usually recite this magickal phrase when I’m either strarting a robbery or started on, but the chant may be used at any part in the rite.
Io Goetikon Io Ho
Really not very different from the above.
Zobeteuma, Goetikon, Atozephos, Aeonifer
This chant conists of my three invented magickal names for the Goetic metagod and an invented magickal name which can be used to refer to and call upon any demon, group of demons, or demonic metagod.
This means “Hail Zobeteuma-Goetikon.” It serves to call upon the Goetikon for any given purpose or working.
Salve Megist Atozephos
“Hail to the Great Atozephos!” Simply calls up/on the Goetikon.
Agios Ischyros Zobeteuma
“Numinous and Mighty is Zobeteuma!”
Amplus Goetikon, Veni
“Mighty Goetikon, Come!”
Salve Aeviternitas Dominator Atozephos
“Hail to the Everlasting Lord Atozephos!”
Liftoach Pandemonium, Et Germinet Goetikon
This translates to “Open the Infernal Plane, and Bring Forth the Goetikon.” It has two simultaneous effects: (i) it calls forth the Goetikon and (ii) it presences Qliphothic energy to create or strengthen a sacred space.
Arcesso Praevalidum Agenti Smola– Invito Zobeteuma
This chant translates to “I Summon the Mighty Emissary of the Left Hand– I Call Zobeteuma!” It’s only useful for evocation.
In Nomine Adamas Ater, Aperiatur Acharayim, Et Germinet, Et Germinet Goetikon
This translates to “In the Name of the Black Diamond, Open the Infernal Plane, and Bring Forth, and Bring Forth the Goetikon.” The “Black Diamond” (Adamas Ater) is the version of the Philosopher’s Stone (i.e. the achievement of the “Great Work” of alchemy that many black magickians call self-deification) which can be achieved via demon magick. This chant has two effects: calling forth the Goetikon, and focusing the mind of the celebrant.
Invoco Goetikon In Nomine Qliphoth
This translates to “I Call to the Goetikon in the Name of the Qliphoth.” It calls forth the Goetikon and drifts the celebrant closer to a trance/gnostic state.
Voco Te Goetikon
This translates to “I Call to the Goetikon.” It calls forth the Goetikon with no additional/simultaneous effect.
Tasa Reme Laris Goetikon
Here we have a demonic enn for the Goetikon. The demonic enns are a mystery to all of us, but I know just enough about them to be confident that this phrase adheres to the basic logical & grammatical rules of a demonic enn. However, while this chant is structurally (linguistically speaking) no different from any other given enn, it’s still not a traditional enn, so I had to have Mephistophiles consecrate it for me.
Liftoach Sitra De-Smola B’Shem Ha-Goetikon
This chant translates to “Open the Sinister Left Side, in the Name of the Goetikon.” This chant calls on the Goetikon to strengthen any rite. It can be simply exclaimed once at any point in the rite.
Goetikon Liftoach Shaari Ha-Qliphoth– Ia Ia Zobeteuma-Atozephos
“Goetikon, Open the Gate to the Qliphoth– Hail, Hail Zobeteuma-Atozephos!” This chant serves to presence Qliphothic energy to build or strengthen a sacred space and program the sacred space to help the celebrant(s) look beyond thepsychic filter, irrational doubt, and normalcy bias– these things will be deteriorated permanatently, albeit not to the extent that they are escaped within the sacred space.
If you are reciting magickal chants to the Goetikon, you will have the best result if you recite the chant a number of times relevant to the Goetikon. Specifically, I would recommend that the above chants be recited 6, 21, 27, 16, or 22 times each– these being sacred numbers of the Goetikon not provided in the list above.
In case this massive lists of chants has not made it easy enough for you to design your own rite to the Goetikon for whatever purpose you like, here is a list of magickal words of power which are useful for demon magick in general:
And here’s a list of magickal chants useful for almost any rite of demon magick:
Here you’ll find two rites to the Goetikon. The first is the long (advanced) version, and the second is shorter and more appropriate for novices who are almost intermediate:
