Who is IZABAEL?

IZABAEL DAJINN

I'm as close to a living, breathing genie as you are ever going to find!

I stumbled into my uncle's Qabalistic texts at age 15 and there was no looking back. I photocopied the parts I thought were juiciest and with what I understood from Cunningham's Wicca (the only other book I had access to at the time), combined them into an effective spell system. As the years went on, I continued to practice and study Eliphas Levi, Aleister Crowley, and Chaos Magick. I am NOT a Wiccan, I am a high magician trained and initiated in the Golden Dawn up to the 5=6 grade, and Thelemically initiated to 8=3 in the A.A. I practice and teach high magick, shamanism, and other forms of occultism. I am the webmaster of my own magick message board, The Fool Speaks: Magick & Occult Forums. If you need more information about me keep reading below or visit my home page: Izabael: The World's Premiere Genie, which is home to my blog, links to all my social networks and other interesting tidbits about me and magick.

Part I: Genies

[ Jump to Part II, Part III ]

What is a genie?

Genie is the English term for the Arabic جني (jinnie), a magical fiery spirit. 

In particular, I use “genie” to refer to any of the 72 spirits from the Goetia.

What is the Goetia?

The Goetia is the first part of a 17th century grimoire (“book of spirits”), called The Lesser Key of Solomon the King.

The most successful and widely read version of the Goetia is a 1904 book by Aleister Crowley and Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers. 

Earliest renditions go back as far as 1500.

Why use a genie?

To get everything you always wanted, of course. Why else?

Genies are experts in their field.  In the Goetia alone, there is such a wide array of genies, that no matter what your desire, there is one to help.

How do genies work?

In his introduction, Crowley espouses the modern view on demonology: the work of demonic evocation is simply psychological self-exploration.  

Therefore, genies (a.k.a. demons, daemons, djinn, jinni, spirits) are actually aspects of our subconscious and not external spirits at all (although in practice you can treat them as either.)

By evoking or invoking a genie, we are connecting with a part of our subconscious that is an expert in its own area.  

If a genie’s abilities include acquiring “wealth and hidden treasures,” we can contact him and work with him.  What happens next is that our psychology will change slightly over the next few days, weeks, months and even years.  These changes may be small, but they add up and can lead us to places we never would have found consciously.  For example: We may make a left turn on a street we normally would make a right and discover a lost wallet full of cash.

Using a genie causes a “butterfly effect” of almost infinitesimal changes that will eventually transform your entire life.

Why use Izabael instead of another Goetic genie?

This is a matter of personal choice, and there is no reason not to use any Goetic spirit one desires.  However, there are a few distinct advantages of IZABAEL to other spirits:

  1. She is especially good-natured.
  2. She naturally connects us to our highest and most divine intuition.
  3. She plays nicely with other spirits in the Goetia.
  4. As the first genie to evolve out of the traditional Goetia, she is most adept with technology and the modern world.  You won’t find a more up-to-date genie.
  5. She’s entirely adaptable to any situation, therefore the need to use endless Goetic genies for each specific thing we want becomes unnecessary.

Is using a genie dangerous or evil?

No, and no.  As long as your intent is pure, no harm can come of working with genies.

As mentioned above, genies are hidden aspects of our subconscious and are no more evil or good than anything else tucked away in our unconscious minds. 

How does one work with a genie?

There are a myriad of ways to work with genies.  Continue into the Holy Spirit Izabael section of the FAQ and I will reveal many effective techniques.

1. What is Izabael?

Izabael (IZABAEL) is a spirit, genie, djinn, daemon, demon, or hidden aspect of the subconscious--depending on one's belief system. For our purposes here any term can be used interchangeably.

Izabael also refers to the High Priestess of Izabael, the physical embodiment of Izabael the spirit.

This section of the FAQ is primarily concerned with Izabael the genie. For the rest of Part II of this FAQ, "Izabael" shall be assumed to refer to the genie and not to the Priestess, Izabael DaJinn.

 

2. What can she do?

She can bring love and sex.

She can make many things happen at once.

She can help facilitate and orchestrate the use of other Goëtic spirits so that they work harmoniously together.

She can be a direct link to one's "Higher Self" and can give flashes of insight into many situations.

Like Ariel from The Tempest, she is an all-purpose spirit, and there is nothing she is unwilling to do for the astute and daring magician of any sexual persuasion.

 

3. What does she look like?

Usually a beautiful woman, but specifics will vary depending on the personality of the magician. Typically she will appear as some sort of seductive genie, impish fairy, or girlish sprite.

Some magicians may only "feel" her as a soft, but penetrating essence. Others may only hear her voice.

In a deep enough trance she will appear as merely an "energy pattern."

 

4. What is her personality like?

She is highly intelligent and strong-willed. She has been known to be coy, mischievous and playful. She may often times appear to be disobedient, but in the end it's only because she knows better than the magician on how to bring their desire. She can sometimes be jealous of the very lovers she may bring.

For men, she may manifest qualities of the Jungian Anima.

For women, she is a healer and protector.

From a magickal standpoint, her name adds to 56 by Gematria, and 7 letters hath her holiest name, so she partakes of the nature of Venus, Nuit, and Babalon. In contrast, she also has strong Mercurial tendencies and a link to path Zain (Gemini) on the Tree of Life. [For more detail check out this blog entry.]

 

5. Where did she come from?

She is decended from Seere of the Goetia, almost like a granddaughter. She has retained many of his abilities while developing into an independent demon in her own right--including powers unheard of with Seere.

Seere

 

6. How Can I work with Izabael?

There are many proven ways to work with Izabael, including all the usual ways associated with Goëtic spirits.

The standard way would be to evoke her by the method given in Donald Michael Kraig's Modern Magick, and various versions of it scattered around the Internet and other books on magick.

This method, known as evocation, is considered traditional and would usually include a magician to invoke the spirit, and a seer to relate the experience. This method often utilizes a "magick mirror" (or "black mirror") into which the seer scrys (i.e. "stares") to receive visions.

Another more intimate and advanced method would be to *invoke* her presence into one's own body or aura. There is no one way to do this, but a rather exhaustive (and exhausting) example of how to do such things is given in Liber Astarte. Simpler approaches can be divined from it.

A Shamanistic approach is given in So You Want to Be a Goetic Shaman?

The above three methods take some work and preparation, not to mention courage, but they yield the most powerful results.

To help whet you appetite, an introductory method of genie summoning is in my blog, (which was also discussed at Abrahadabra forums.)

Another beginner's method is here.

These last two methods, though harmless, can still yield powerful results among the innately sensitive.

 

7. What is Izabael's sigil?

This is Izabael's sigil (septagram optional, but recommended) and should be used for all major workings. Usually this will be drawn or painted somewhere permanent:

Izabael pink sigil

A sigil is the truest and most universal symbol of a daemon's nature.

The linking sigil is a more simplified symbol that "links" back to the energy of the main sigil and can be used anywhere and anytime Izabael energy is needed. It can be stylized as suits the magician.

Also it is more easily "doodled" which is a mild form of invocation:

Izabael doodle

 

8. How do I make Izabael invocations stronger?

Practice and experimentation with different methods.

Patience.

Taking time to read the omens and signs she is leaving behind.

For the truly adventurous I recommend Salvia Divinorum. Precise instructions for utilizing Salvia for invocation can be found in Goëtic Shamanism.

9. What if I invoke Izabael into an actual woman?

This is possible and very fun!

One can choose to make the dedication permanent, in which case the aspirant becomes a priestess of Izabael, like myself.

 

10. What sorts of things does Izabael like?

Favorite places for her sigil are large silver coins, seashells, and genie bottles.

Her favorite scents are rose and jasmine, but she also enjoys any other scents appropriate to Venus or Nuit.

Her favorite colors tends to be purple or pink, but certain lovely shades of green or yellow often titillate her as well. Izabael herself may share other enjoyments after working with her.

 

11. How do I get rid of Izabael?

Simply ask her to go away, and she will do so. If you want to make it permanent, simply give away anything you own of hers.

 

12. Where can I discuss Izabael with others?

There are a few occult forums online you can try:

Izabael's Forums

Abrahadabra Forums

Occult Corpus

 

13. Where can I learn more about magick in general? All this talk of evoking, invoking, talismans, and charging is confusing me!

As I started my path with the aforementioned Modern Magick, I'm still partial to it, but there is plenty free information online for those willing to put in the time doing the Google searches and checking out the message boards above.

 

14. Who is BABALON what does she have to do with Izabael?

Beyond the essential Book of the Law and Waratah Blossoms, try searching for Babalon on Google as well as for the workings of Aleister Crowley.

The High Priestess Izabael has written a post on Abrahadabra forums explaining the relationship between Nuit, Babalon, Izabael and the priestess. It's written simply enough but requires some basic knowledge of high magickal Qabalah. [Also available in this blog entry.]

 

15. Is Izabael good or evil?

There is no good or evil save what happens to be "good" for you in the moment. In that sense, Izabael is entirely good since she opens up your intuition to the divine, which is to say she opens you up to the joyous sensuality of spontaneous existence.

As far as her being a "demon"--it's an old fashioned term so I prefer to use "genie-demon" as it makes implicit the connection between the Arabic "Jinn" (or "Djinn") and the demons of the Goetia.

Izabael is just a spirit, not a religion. In Christianity she could be a "Saint," or a "Loa" in Vodou.

 

16. Is Izabael powerful?

Indeed! Give her a little love and attention and she can transform your entire world through an infinite rippling of microscopic changes.

 

17. Can I ask you questions about Izabael?

Yes, of course. Check the forums or email me at izabael -at- izabael.com.

Part III: Izabael DaJinn

[ Jump to Part I, Part II, Top ]

Who are you?

I’m Izabael DaJinn, High Priestess for Izabael the djinn.  Read my about page for more details.

What's the difference between you and Izabael?

I'm Izabael DaJinn and I'm human. That is my legal name, which I changed when I fully invoked the daemon Izabael into my psyche. Izabael is a spirit which exists independently of me, but she seems happiest speaking through me, though many other magicians also utilize her as often as they like.
