I create, by hand, Daemon cast seals, altars, shrines, altar cloths, Daemon specific incenses, baths and oils, and will even create your spell powders with the presence and perhaps help of a particular Daemon if that is your preference. I will also perform an evocation on your behalf, either for information, spellwork, specific help, healing, or even pacts if they are well thought out. No pacts have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with selling your soul; don't even ask (since you won't get a response).
Each and every one of the Daemon items I create for you is made in sacred space. Oh sure everyone says that! Though in this case I actually mean it. I have two temple areas set up. One of them is for the Daemons as well as select Deities. By temple space I mean altars, offerings, candles, sacred items, the Daemon's seals in metal, gemstones and so forth, and various bits of magick work going. Where else would be more appropriate than that to create a Daemon item? The Daemon seals on the otherhand, the wax is worked on in sacred space; they are not cast in the sacred space since the fumes are not conducive to indoor closed off areas without fume hoods. Then the seals are bought back into the temple space, and often stored on the appropriate altar or shrine.
In some cases, I will ask the particular Daemon to bless the item; the incense, oil, bath, seal, and so forth. In all cases I will ask them to bless an altar or altar cloth, unless of course you would prefer that I do not.
The sacred space or the Daemons is a full time temple with daily offerings, rituals and work being done. If this however makes you a bit uncomfortable, I also have another temple which is more focused towards Enochian :).
The Pseudomonarchia Daemonum and The Goetia
The first list is from the Pseudomonarchia daemonum by Johann Weyer (aka Wier, Wierus), which he included in his De praestigiis daemonum in 1583, and in 1584 Reginald Scot included the same list in The Discoverie of Witchcraft.
The second list, the seals, and engravings are from the Goetia at sacred-texts.com 1904 translation edited by S. L. MacGregor Mathers. If you wish to buy a copy of the Lesser Key (which contains the Goetia) I suggest Joseph Peterson's edition. I'm only using Mather's inferior edition here because its copyright (along with Mathers himself) has long expired. The Goetia is part of the Lemegeton, also known as the Lesser Key of Solomon.
Scot's edition of the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum is in all probability the source text for the Goetia. While the Goetia includes 4 Daemons that the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum does not (Vassago and the last three), Peterson points out that "The fourth spirit in Weyers text, Pruflas alias Bufas, was accidently left out of Reginald Scots English translation (found in his highly rational 1584 Discovery of Witchcraft), or was already missing from the edition of Weyer used by Scot. It is also the only spirit from Weyers list that is not found in the Lemegeton.". It seems to me that the Goetia includes some of Scot's slight mistranslations of names as well. Noone's sure why the order of the daemons got so mixed up between the Goetia and the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum.
The first set of seals come from the Goetia. The bands with the names of the daemons surrounding the seals were added by Mathers. The Goetia did not contain the engravings, either. The engravings Mathers included in his edition were originally by Louis Breton, and included in Dictionnaire Infernal by Collin de Plancy in 1863. De Plancy's list is not reproduced here. The Pseudomonarchia Daemonum did not include engravings or seals.
I've also added the descriptions and seals from Arthur Edward Waite's 1913 The Book of Ceremonial Magic, but it doesn't have its own list as that portion of the book was another translation of the Goetia.
