I'm going to buy some more books to prepare for my first evocation. Can you
please share your ideas and recommend about 5 - 10 books a complete newbie
should study please? Thanks.

- That's a good one too Aaron! Will have to try that. I was taught another one similar to that but without the mirror, using a flipped glass of water with a reversed candle on a saucer like you described, except you place an egg in the glass of water. In this case the egg "takes the hit" and after the candle has burned down you dispose of the egg at the crossroads, or if you don't know where the attack is coming from - you can very carefully crack the egg into the glass of water and read it for signs to see who, or what, is causing the problem - before disposing of it appropriately. This doesn't reverse the spell back to sender but instead uses the egg to absorb it.

Invert the candle, light the wick *from the bottom of the candle* and affix this to the upturned bottom of the tumbler. Place the mirror beside this on the East, so that it reflects toward the West. Address a prayer to the Archangel Michael- to defend you against your enemies, to argue your case before the Divine Throne, etc.

If you attempt to light the bottom of the candle and it refuses to catch, then you likely have the wrong person's name on the candle.
> After the candle bottom burns completely away, replace it with the top half of the candle. This time it should be lit from the top as normal, and affixed to the tumbler rightside-up. Address Michael (or the HGA) once more with the typical grimoiric prayers of thanks, presenting the wax (and perhaps some incense!) as an offering, asking Him always to protect and defend you, etc. Allow that candle to burn away. Carry the tumbler to the front door and toss the water out as far as you can.
