When you interact with a nonphysical entity, the information you receive is filtered through the structures of your mind. These structures, in turn, depend on the imagery and concepts of the cultural mythologies you have inherited." -Crowley, Rose, Satan
Most beginner texts on chakras or mantras, held significant provisions against proceeding with such practices if one was not ready to shift perspectives, and hence possibly the direction of their life. However, these texts failed to provide detailed analysis of the psychological process discussing mostly procedural-process. In doing such practices, you are essentially purging the light-body of dense perspectives that limit/direct the flow of consciousness, and hence, the flow of vital-life-essence (manipulatable prana). Conscious focus on each area of a designated chakra tends to release conditioning/programming associated with such chakra, leading to dark night psychological processing. By focusing on the light body aspects, or rather not focusing (neti, neti) to cause an intense flush, causes the physical body to react due to prior issues, traumas, and mental patterns embedded in muscle-memory giving the psychological adage of "bottled-up" emotions.
Just as one shouldn't make decisions when suffering from the emotion of "anger", like radio flipping through stations, the mind tends to gravitate towards "thoughts" at an "emotional" frequency, where the typical human mind-set is often governed/dictated by the individuals sway of emotions. Moreover, should one "clutch" in anger, such should give the feeling of how the muscles would be embedded by memory, particularly if an emotion or mental-habit is continuously repeated.
Hence, with cleanse of dense "beliefs" that distort perception at the light-body level, the physical body will react with muscular tension release which may show "dense" memories, all the while bringing the adept closer to clarity of perception, undistorted awareness, and the "bliss" of dropping one's psychological baggage (a relaxation to the central nervous system, a break from chasing heaven/hell) known as "Ananda" in Self-Realization circles. Nonetheless, the drastic shift in perspective causes tangible changes not just physically, but like peeling back the layers of an onion, the adept may not find themselves as the same person as they were before.
The Enochian Calls relate to the Biblical "Enoch" only by name, hence the two (2) should not be confused. Rather, the name "Enochian Calls" relates to "Angelic" Magick, a divination system channeled from the works of the pious-religious John Dee (007) and the crooked-scryer Edward Kelly. The essential aim of the calls is using the Angels for "Enlightenment", or to return humanity before the "fall of man". As occultists Jason Louv describes, as a representation of the entire universe, the effects of the practice are not solely for the individual adept, but holds the potential for mass change, or rather the "revelation" of divine information defined as "apocalypse".
Prior to such rituals, or "calls" (total of 30), the adept is asked to build furniture and complex occult symbols such as the Sigillum Dei Aemeth. As has been my practice, such externalities are mainly a way to "court" with such energies to be conjured, where the adept builds the psychological-momentum to "commune" with such energies. Hence, practices such as the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram come in handy in building a rapport, or the use of psychic techniques such as that of Dr. Lauren Cielo (Golden Rose Psychic), to begin an experiential-feeling-understanding of Angelic energies. Such energies appear to transform the astral body, creating a trickle-down-effect towards the physical. Nonetheless, I've taken note that without any prior experience, Jason Louv's audience all had vision-type experiences, as Mr. Louv provided one (1) meditative "Call" for his audience through his course-work. The authors experience will be described below.
Jason Louv provides the clearest explanation of what is required under his course-work and book "John Dee and the Empire of Angels", having synthesized the prior work material on said subject from occult greats including Lon Milo Duquette. Just as the gnostic works of Carl Jung have been "shunned" by society for later print during more "progressive" time-periods, including others with far-stretching ideologies including Wilhelm Reich, Bruno and Tesla, John Dee is another genius whose occultism is often downplayed to stress his numerous other accomplishments. Such shows the societal-communal-programming that pervades society, creating a rather ignorant/uninformed "reasonable person standard", sheep-mentality which occult practices seek to undo. After John Dee and Edward Kelly, it was Aleister Crowley and Victor Benjamin Neuburg who provided us with "The Vision and The Voice" addressing his visionary experiences from ritually expressing the Enochian Calls. Thereafter, we have the brilliant Jack Parsons work product he compiled, with the devious L. Ron Hubbard, which paved the way for his "Babalon Working".
Left Hand Path:
There are occultists-authors who have swapped the El/Yahweh (Judeo-Christian) themes for Heylal (Lucifer) not only as a means of deconditioning and removing oneself from the limitations of religion, but it becomes quite political between the ancient Canaanites and the adoptive-Semites. In addition, John Dee was a pious Christian, where ancient grimoires are done from a Judeo-Christian perspective of dominating under "El/Yahweh's" authority as opposed to recognizing one's own Will. From the tantrik perspective, mantras are to be done as "Shiva" as one's own "God-Authority-Perspective" as the human/will/ego tends to distort/limit potential. Those on the western LHP tend to adopt such attitudes choosing to be sovereign, viewing deities/guides as energetic potential for personal empowerment.
Nonetheless, I would recommend the Angelic form of Enochian, at least to begin and should be enough to move an adept forward in doing practices relatable to both Right and Left Hand Paths. Particularly the infusion of the "Enochian Language" with other systems, where I have discovered and used Enochian "mantras" for Left Hand Path rituals as described under the Temple of Ascending Flame. Therefore, the Enochian Calls will move you forward in working with occult practices generally, where in effect as an aftermath, my own sensitivities had significantly ripened making the practice of Shakti-mantra thereafter significantly more energetically "boastful".
In addition, for western occultists, the work product of John Dee is where we are offered the name of the feminine half of the "the Beast" who resides in the qabalist abyss (Daath), "Choronzon". While modern-day Abrahamic complexities seek to establish anything "not them" as "evil, devil, dark, etc.", where the Old Testament appears to be more so propaganda-type politics of the "chosen ones" in opposition (satan; adversary) to other groups thereafter being demonized, the Enochian Calls point to a clear-cut archetype for adepts to understand/comprehend/experience the "Beast" or what John Dee referred to as "that Mighty Devil". Provided that Daath is the gateway to the dark tree, Enochian "mantras" are also quite beneficial in opening particular sefirot/qliphot for experiential-exploration. As Daath stands between the top three sefirot (supernal triad) leading towards Self Realization and the bottom seven sefirot representing the "fall of man", Choronzon challenges identities, concepts, mental-constructs, as an ego-death purity process before the adept proceeds to the ordeals of Binah (Saturn). Such "trials and tribulations" can be found/experienced through the workings of Asenath Mason on the Qliphoth. Do note, the deconditioning of the Left Hand Path, is adversarial-antinomian, and quite energetically-powerful in the path of Self-Deification. This ain't your momma's nonduality, unless your momma is a badass. In addition, nondual perspective moves well-beyond a "merge" or "lack of differentiation" between the perceiver (subject) and the perceived (object) as "awareness" grasps "awareness", where sattvic, raja, and tamas modes of personality, all appear to be conditioned requiring an adversarial truth seeking modality to break away from herd-mentality and establish sovereignty.
In summation, I found the Enochian Calls to be extremely rewarding in developing psychic sensitivities and gaining recognition/authority in the Angelic realms. Moreover, I've taken note that Angels in these practices are not exactly in opposition to Demons, but rather "stop being distracted" as Angels may take on more vicious teacher like standards. In addition, like Jack Parsons who chased after Babalon, my initial experience in beginning with the 30th Call raised visions of Goddess Parvati. As with my prior description, please relate to Jason Louv's course-work in proceeding with the Enochian Calls, where he makes the calls quite easy for adepts to immediately utilize, with an overall better understanding of the system and its history.
The Vision and The Voice (Innerstairwell):
-The Vision and The Voice (Visionary Comparison)
-John Dee and The Empire of Angels (Jason Louv)
I'm providing my visionary notation for comparison with other adepts. Each of the 30 calls (done in reverse order) were conducted rather quickly to fit within my work schedule. Such should be done timely for psychological and physical adjustments and whatever external changes may occur as a result thereof (as within, so without). Do understand the "tower" card of the tarot as required before meeting the "star".
Personally, after each call, I would feel a significant energy drain requiring sleep soon thereafter, not longer than three (3) hours, so prepare accordingly. Moreover, do not become fanatical about visions or experiences, but question everything down to its core and continue to collect seeds of evidence to flower into something more. Avoid conditioning yourself and limiting yourself into not just the dogma of others, but your own personal beliefs.
The 30th Aethyr:
-More sensation than vision, lots of inner shifts with a "lightening up" feeling.

consciously return to body (ground).
(Done under a video group teaching with Jason Louv, where audience members all had their own experiences.

The Enochian Calls have significantly pushed my psychic-sensitivities, and as I have felt, created a "standing" or a "signature" in the multidimensional universe recognizable by other astral entities. As such, working with Angels had intensified, mantras are more boisterous, and the Enochian language is further used in other occult practices, including Asenath Mason's Qliphothic workbooks. Such practices help the adept not only push towards the "empty" of "enlightenment" (deconditioning all identities and constructs), but work with archetypal energies to help adepts stand on their own feet in getting the most out of their lives.
When it comes to Occult practices, find teachers who have been there and done that, as opposed to the ignorant competitors plaguing mainstream spiritual markets (including the ones listed on my blog), who hide behind terms such as "the highest", or "authentic", "soul", "true self", etc., spiritual teachers rip each other off, including marketing gimmicks and narcissist-type expressive style, and brush off legitimate competitors in favor of culling kiss-ass sheep. As I have found, Occultist are the only ones doing their homework properly, scientifically (Psychology meets Physics), when it comes to spirituality (and well-beyond to be a well-rounded individual). I also do not trust a teacher who is afraid of the dark, as they can only perceive half the picture, or will portray a distorted/biased surface-based perspective, something I've continuously seen among agenda-type spiritual teachers. I hope my "vision and voice" has been helpful and an ode to sincere seekers, as the torch of those occultists before us is handed to a new generation.
