Items in a Field Kit

Ok, so someone asked for a better picture, and I can't do it. Blogger has this thing they do with photos, and I could go through a process to get a clearer pic published, but it takes a while, and there's enough detail to get the gist.

It was one Ebony Wand based on Trithemius made for me by Fr. Ashen, one old quartz point I got for a dollar fifty at the local occult supply shop a few years ago, the seven* Planetary Talismans, Holy Water, and Oil of Abramelin. In my garage already are several types of incense and a charcoal incense burner.**

When I bring a field kit with me in general, I don't bother with the wand. It's just too long to carry conveniently. Everything else can be easily stashed in a pocket if necessary, though it looks kinda funny.***

I was heading out to put an Evil Demon in some lead for a client. I brought the crystal to use on the side for communications with Cassiel, who I would be working with primarily, but also for my HGA and Kammael if necessary. I ended up not having to use it, the spirits and I have strong relationships and we were able to talk without the crystal. Still, I like to have a crystal on hand for viewing purposes.

So I went to the garage and cleansed and banished with Holy water, consecrated the ground for our defense with the wand, fired up some incense and conjured my HGA. When he was present, I cleansed my self with Holy Water, saying:
Asperges me, Domine, hyssopo et mundabor, Lavabis me, et super nivem dealbabor. Miserere mei, Deus, secundum magnam misericordiam tuam. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto, Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.****
As I said the Father-Son-Holy Ghost part, I crossed my forehead, mouth, and heart respectively. I conjured up Cassiel and Kammael, and was all set to bind the demon into the steel and lead when I remembered a Table of Practice might be useful. So I sketched one out on a pad of paper I had on hand, and went to town. With Cassiel, Kammael, and my HGA, we got the client's Evil Daimon bound, and then I sealed it up, waited for the wood glue to dry, and then wood-burned in the Seal and stained it a purty color. I like mahogany.

Now it's curing in the garage. It's taking longer than it ought to because we've been rained on all weekend. I hoped to get it in the mail today, but that didn't happen. (Sorry, R.!) I checked it this morning and it's still leaving streaks when you touch it. I could bake it in the oven for a while on low heat, but the family doesn't like their meatloaf tasting like wood stain. Picky picky.

* Venus was on top one of the others, so it looks like there's only six in the picture. Of course it was Venus. I'm pretty sure she was on Michael.

** The family has agreed the self-lighting charcoal smells like burning tires, and have formally requested that I stick to stick incense in the house.

*** "No, it's a crystal point I use to conjure spirits in my pocket. I've never been that happy to see anyone."

**** You will sprinkle me, O Lord, with hyssop and I shall be cleansed You will wash me, and I shall be washed whiter than snow. Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your great mercy. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and always shall be in ages of ages. Amen.
