The 9 Easiest Demons To Summon

The 9 easiest demons to summon woman with demon behind her.

“Who are the easiest demons to summon?” is a question I see a lot on social media and on Quora. This is a rather difficult question to answer as it greatly depends on you and your personality.

For instance, Lilith and Archne/Sepheranz are patron deities (I consider demons to be divine, so these terms are interchangeable for me) for me and have been my whole life (I later discovered). So, they respond well to me and are usually very loving and helpful. Others do not seem to have this kind of experience with them…

And which demons are the easiest demons to summon depends on what you consider “easy”…

What Skills You Need To Summon Demons Easily

Skills you need to easily summon demons.

There are some deities that work well with beginners, n00bs, practitioners moving into evocation later in their practice, and people just looking to explore the occult arts/dabblers. Here, I detail who these deities are and why I believe they are good for beginners.

But keep in mind that if you do not know how to summon a demon, are underprepared for the process (for instance, you cannot keep yourself in the right state), or have not done enough preparatory immersion, then no matter how easy the demon is to summon, it’s still probably not going to happen–at least in a way that you really notice it.

It’s like seeking out who the easiest boss in a certain video game is, but then never playing or getting far enough into the game to get to the boss: you’re never going fight that boss, so it doesn’t matter. That’s a bad metaphor, but I hope my point is taken: you need to do the work so that the evocation is possible.

Evocation (summoning) assumes that you’re reasonably adept at other types of magick and have a least a slightly open third eye. You can of course train all of these skills while you learn how to evoke, but that means that evocations are going to take longer (i.e. the ritual will be longer) and the skill itself will likely take some time to master as you have to work on the basics like getting into the right state (a deep “trance”), seeing astral energy, solidifying your will toward a goal, the smaller skills of casting circles like calling the corners or the LBRP, etc.

Be patient with yourself and see this as a skillset, and you’ll get much further along. Of course, if you believe you can and should summon a demon, don’t let a caveat stop you! Just know that it does take some magickal skill to make it work right usually.

But let’s assume you have developed all of those skills. So, without further ado, here is my list of the easiest demons to summon!

9 Easiest Demons To Summon

These demons are not in any particular order, but I start with the ones that are considered gentle or at least not mean and end with those that will bring more energy or strife. Many are from The Goetia, but not all of them are. [FYI, many popular demons are in this book, but not all of them because the grimoires from the middle ages often overlap.]


Seere has two sigils in the Goetia. Sigil one is on the left, sigil two is on the right.
Seere has two sigils in The Goetia. Sigil one is on the left, sigil two is on the right.

Seere is the 70th spirit of The Goetia. In the Mathers translation, Seere is described as having an “indifferent good nature, and is willing to do anything the exorcist desireth”. He usually appears as a handsome man on a winged horse, but like most demons, he can take other forms. He can travel quickly and is adept at bringing things, including treasure. And he can tell you about theft and the location of treasures. He is a prince who serves Amaymon. In practice, he often gives gifts and makes people think favorably of you, usually causing them to give you gifts.

Orobas is the 55th spirit of The Goetia. He is generally considered a kind, benevolent entity. The Goetia says, “He is very faithful unto the exorcist, and will not suffer him to be tempted of any spirit.” He appears as a horse (see the image above), but he will put on the form of a man once asked to do so. His role is to discover the truth about the past, present, or future. He can also help someone to become more powerful, particularly to help someone gain titles and positions in government or the church. In practice, he is best called upon to help you to make new friends and to gain the favor of others, even enemies or people that just don’t like you for whatever reason.

Ipos is also thought to be one of the nicer demonic entities. He is the 22nd spirit of The Goetia. Ipos knows the past, present, and future and he “maketh men witty and bold”. He appears in many forms, but the most popular depiction is in Plancy’s Dictionnaire Infernal.


Vine 9 Easiest Demons To Summon Frater Lucath

Vine is the 45th spirit in The Goetia. He appears “in the form of a lion, riding upon a black horse, and bearing a viper in his hand.” When I worked with him, I saw him as an ancient warrior, maybe a Spartan. He wore a mask that looked almost exactly like his sigil. The Goetia says, “his office is to discover things hidden, witches, wizards, and things present, past, and to come. He, at the command of the exorcist will build towers, overthrow great stone walls, and make the waters rough with storms.” Given this description, I worked with him to help me to overcome the blocks in my own mind and in the minds of others. [Remember, these duties are figurative as well.]


Beleth from the Dictionnarie Infernal and his sigil from The Goetia.

Beleth is the 13th spirit of The Goetia. The text describes him as “terrible”, requiring the summoner to call him into the triangle with a hazel wand and many threats. The text also suggests you wear a silver ring and place it to your face to protect against his demonic fire breath. This hasn’t been my experience with him: he was sweet and cool. Regardless, you may wish to call him with caution nevertheless. I summoned him on DMT once upon a time, and he played the most beautifully intoxicating melody and mice danced around him just like in the drawing of Plancy’s Dictionnaire Infernal. My girlfriend said my cat was entranced looking under the doorway and swatting at something, I imagine the astral mice (she seems to be able to see these spirits…). I had that melody stuck in my head for weeks and wish I’d transcribed it to musical notation. He causes men and women to love the summoner. In other words, he has power over the emotions of others.


Amon and Amaymon/Amaimon are considered the same entity by some sources, not by others. In my work, I’ve found them to be the same entity, so I’ve included them here as one. Amaymon is a powerful entity that The Goetia recommends commanding into the triangle and wearing a silver ring held to your face to protect yourself from fire breath, etc. But like with Beleth, I haven’t seen this to be necessary. Working with him was cool other than one mistake I made… Fire is one of my favorite ways to summon entities, though it’s occasionally kind of intense or dangerous. In the censer below, the fire usually gets about 4-8 inches high. I’ve done about 30 fire evocations with it. Amaymon told me not to call him with fire, but I did anyway. As he arrived the fire shot up to about three feet tall and pretty much instantly melted the censer. [It’s silver plated white metal, so it’s not that far out he melted it, but the fire was far more intense than usual and way larger than usual. It roared like a campfire for the minute or so it was on fire.]

Amaymon melted this with his huge fire in about a minute.

Amaymon told me “My role is to help people become one with themselves, their bodies, their intentions, their desires, who they are, their darkness, their light. I turn dark into light. Alchemy of sorts: it is what it is; what it is it isn’t anymore… We are the re-connector… Life changing, that’s our business.”

In The Goetia, Amaymon is not listed, only Amon. [Though, Amaymon is talked about, he is never described or shown. One of many reasons people assume they are synonymous.] The powers listed are to tell things past and future, and to create feuds and reconcile problems between friends. According to The Book of the Sacred Magick of Abra-Melin the Mage, Amaimon is a sub-prince of hell.


Paimon from the Dictionnaire Infernal and his seal from The Goetia.

Paimon is the 9th spirit of The Goetia. He is a very popular demon, and while easy to call is not necessarily simple to work with. He appears on a dromedary (one-humped camel) with a crown upon his head. He is said to come accompanied by music and to speak in a harsh, rough voice. He has been known to ask people point blank, “Who do you think you are to summon me?” According to The Goetia, his roles are to “teach all arts and sciences, and other secret things. He can discover what the Earth is, and what holdeth it up in the waters; and what the mind is, and where it is; and any other thing thou mayest desire to know. He giveth dignity, and confirmeth the same. He bindeth or maketh any man subject unto the magician it he so desire it. He giveth good familiars, and… can teach all arts.” According to The Book of the Sacred Magick of Abra-Melin the Mage, Paimon is the same entity as Azazel


Lucifer in Paradise Lost drawn by Gustave DorΓ©.

Lucifer makes this list not because working with him is simple–it’s not necessarily–but because he is simple to summon. He generally appears rather quickly and easily to most who call him, but is inclined to shine a light on your whole life.

He is after all, “the light bringer”. This means he often shines a light into the parts of your life that are frustrating, hard, block you, or that need to be dealt with in order to move on–and more often than not, if these areas of life are “darkened”, you’re likely purposely avoiding them…

While this sounds like it could be a bad thing, ultimately it’s good. Think it was JS Garrett who said that working with Lucifer is often like shining a flashlight under the fridge: you can see what’s there, but then you realize you probably need to clean it.

So, only call upon Lucifer if you’re really ready to clean up your messes; however, as far as I can tell, he thinks of this as a blessing. So, he’ll really only illuminate things for those he thinks are worthy enough to clean them up.

He can appear in many forms, but the most common (at least for me) are as a small child (think Damien from The Omen), as a toned adult male (the form he’s most often painted in), or as a being of pure fire (a form he only showed himself to me if after I started practicing Draconian Magick).


Satanic figure. Satan technically doesn’t
have a sigil sans the Sigil of Satan which

Depending on who you ask, Satan and Lucifer can be considered the same being. I do not see things this way. I’m more in the camp that they’re either different entities or two different aspects of Samael. Samael is a much more difficult entity to work with in my opinion because the egregoric elements of Satan and Lucifer add greatly to their ability to be easily called.

Satan is the spirit of adversity. Because of this, Satan has also been linked with Prometheus, who delivered fire to mankind (though, I believe Lucifer is a better entity to syncretize Prometheus to) and with Loki. There are reasons to believe this and to not believe this. In my mind, these kinds of disputes are much better settled by working with them yourself and seeing what you think.

Satan, like Lucifer, is easy to summon; however, like Lucifer, he is very powerful and brings with him a certain type of energy into your life. Whereas Lucifer has a light and knowledge he brings, Satan has a tendency to bring a “What?!? Bring it!” kind of attitude. Expect disputes, standing up for yourself, having to stand your ground, and being a bit aggressive. Unfortunately, this is likely why (or a byproduct of) some edge-lords are attracted to Satanism. The members of the metal band Mayhem are perfect examples of this…

Demons To Avoid Summoning Until You’re More Skilled

Do what you want, it’s your life, but the following entities will likely ignore or give dabblers or n00bs quite the experience. Not for the light of heart or the less-than-seriously-dedicated practitioner.


Given the childhood I had, Arachne likely had a hand in orchestrating some suffering for my personal development. I love her and her energy, but many people do not. For instance, VK Jehannum recommends not calling on Arachne/Sepheranz for any reason other than she’s already calling you or your tradition requires a very high level of personal alchemy. She demands people are serious and dedicated to personal growth or she is displeased. I’m dedicated, disciplined, practice daily, and focus on my personal goals and I still irk her sometimes. The first time I irked her, I found a brown recluse in my house–and I lived in an area where they are really rare. Not for the light of heart.


Lilith is a dark moon goddess or demoness, depending on how you look at it. [FYI, “dark moon” + female entity means they are related to the reproduction cycles of women and usually menstrual blood. Working with Lilith is often symbolically related to menstrual blood and many of her path workings involve it.] She is all about the sexual freedom of women, and purportedly was ejected from Eden for refusing to let Adam take her sexually (the story goes that she wanted to be on top during sex, but from my gnosis, it seems more like Adam was a rapist–I could be wrong, but this is my interpretation). Lilith is harsh to many people–at least from what one can gather reading Internet reports of magickal workings (I’m rather skeptical of them from my own experiences and the amount of keyboard warriors I’ve met who are fake occultists that tell tall tales). I’ve mostly had good experiences with Lilith, but many people report her being mean to them and she rightly has the reputation as the dominatrix demoness. She doesn’t seem to take kindly to dabblers or those who wish to use her energy to subvert the sexual will of women, and she is far from kind if you’re asking her for stupid things: she definitely speaks her mind. She also has a tendency to straight up ignore people she sees as unworthy.


Belial is one of the most powerful demons I’ve ever worked with. He is very good at helping you find work, get raises and promotions, bring friends, make enemies into allies, and to help with legal issues.He has helped me with everything I asked him for within minutes or days. He has protected me in crazy situations like moving across the country in a blizzard and given me strength I didn’t know I had. He has also run me in circles, made me mad, confused me, told me incorrect things to test me, given me tasks that make no sense, and straight up mocked me. He loves his dad jokes and confusing imagery. And of course to run the practitioner in circles. He also seems to ignore those he sees as unworthy.


Typhon is technically a Titan, but he’s a giant serpent with 100 serpent heads that shoot lava. He also kicked Zeus’s ass on several occasions until Zeus dropped a mountain on him… If that doesn’t sound like a demon, I don’t know what does! [Hopefully, it’s becoming clear why you might want to wait on this one…] Plus, the Titans have many of the same religious overtones as demons. Regardless of typography, Typhon is one of the major forces in the Draconian tradition. Though, Kenneth Grant equates him with the Egyptian goddess Taurt or Nuit. This, like much of Kenneth Grant’s work, get confusing really quickly. Putting all that aside, Typhon is actually a rather cool entity to work with, but the preparatory immersion and lack of a sigil make it more work than most new magickians can handle. When added to the above, it’s best to wait to work with Typhon until you’re ready.

    • I rarely post spells because I don’t think magick is so formulaic… I’d use Belial for this and make it a personalized ritual, but it’d be simple: I’d call him, use blood, then ask him for help and see if I get any additional gnosis. Many people would recommend a beginner not to work with Belial, however. So, that’d be up to you to decide… There are also methods in Lucifer and Hidden Demons that could be helpful ( That book is rather simple and aimed at beginners. You could read the pertinent sections in about 3-4 hours tops and do the ritual tonight. Many people have a lot of success with it.

  1. i dont know anything about summoning demons but now i feel the need to summon one. but i could really use a pal with the know how on the right demon for me to summon and how to do it and what not.

    • These questions are somewhat subjective and even after helping you, you’d still have to do it. Many magickians describe this as somewhat like riding a bicycle. You can read or be told all about how to ride, but you have to find the balance for yourself. That said, I have many articles that address these points on this blog. So, if you just look around, you’ll find what you need here.

    • Great question. [Though, I’m not sure why you used a fake email address so you probably won’t see this reply… No one sees it but me anyway plus you could have just created one for this purpose…]

      Skepticism is a very valuable part of spiritual growth and is a healthy approach to things. On the LHP, one needs to think for themselves. So, this response should be something to be proud of! Question everything without being close-minded. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      Ultimately, I believe that Luciferianism (how I approach the spiritual question) is a personal path. The proof is in personal working, not in looking to others. So, until you’ve done the work, it’s a leap of faith whether or not you believe anyone’s spiritual experiences… And maybe even after that. Frankly, there are some professional occultists/writers whose experiences I question…

      I know what I’ve done, but there’s no way you really can know what I’ve done other than a personal litmus test. [This is true in many facets of life, however. There’s also no way for you to know how skilled pretty much anyone is at anything. This is the point of certifications and state boards, etc., but even those can only test rote knowledge, classroom hours, and the opinions of some. Hence why even lawyers and doctors can be disbarred…] Without experience in something, it’s hard to know. E.g. if you don’t know about physics, people could just lie to you about Einstein and you’d have no idea. Many new agers talk about quantum physics in very confusing ways if you know anything about it…

      There are a lot of occultists who say some far out things. I have pretty moderate experiences all things considered. I think what I suggest is easier to digest than others because I don’t think you can do things like manifest millions overnight, etc. Most of my personal approach to magick is in personal development… I think you shouldn’t ask for things to be easier, you should ask to be better and that’s mostly what I use magick for personally. It works better and is easier to quantify the results of. Plus, why not become the kind of person who can achieve what you want rather than just having it handed to you?

      I’d say read my stuff, do your own work, and if it resonates with you, great. If not, then move on. I’m not offended either way. There are really only a dozen or so ways to do ritual workings (though, the details vary by tradition) and I do my best to give well-rounded approaches from many angles. If you look at many of the articles on my blog or my blog as a whole, I offer different approaches in the hopes that people actually explore these methods. I’m also rarely the only one talking about the methods I write about. So, you could seek consensus verification.

      I really don’t set myself up to be someone to look at and say, “Wow, he has all the answers!” Rather, I hope to be someone who can interest you to take the steps yourself and to become a colleague. I know that’s not really an enthralling answer, but it’s the truth. Explore, see what happens, troubleshoot, see for yourself. All this stuff takes some effort and skill, so give it a serious exploration, however. I’m happy to help when I can.

      Good luck! πŸ™‚

  2. Hi Frater Lucath, I am very new to the LHP so I am reading lots and listening to YouTube talks, planning to buy a couple of books at some stage. I am a little confused as there are so many different perspectives and opinions out there! For instance, one black witch insists you must use animal blood to summon a demon – not for me, I don’t want to do that. Also, some say you don’t need circles, etc and others say its essential. I am too confused to even bother starting with a lot of this stuff. I find there is a lot of fear mongering and I don’t know if its justified or not but it smacks of some other religions around who put the fear of god into you, etc. I would appreciate some sane, no nonsense advice and basic requirement information. For another example, I have a 12 year old son, should I hold off on this type of practice because of him? Ugh, so much information, which is right?!

    • Hi Kristen,

      Glad to hear you’re exploring the LHP! It definitely can be confusing. I agree there is an obscene amount of fear mongering, especially considering how many “demonic” entities when traced back were pre-Abrahamic gods…

      My articles about evocation, pathworking, blood magick, and EA Koetting’s Evocation Mastery course may help you out quite a lot.

      But to answer your questions…

      1) You do not need to use blood to summon demons, animal or otherwise. While you could sacrifice animals, some LHP groups prohibit animal sacrifices (most notably the original Church of Satan and Temple of Set). People think of four major “doorways” for evocations: fire, water, blood, and smoke (incense). But you can also use mirrors or just intention (e.g. people praying to “God” or that feel his touch, etc. are experiencing evocation phenomena without any of the accouterment). A lot of people overcomplicate it. The major necessities are mind state and intention. From there, the rest help, but are not necessary. I find a few drops of my blood on a sigil add to the effect as it seems to connect the spirits to me on a deeper level (but you just need a few drops from say a diabetic lancet, though some women use menstrual blood for this and to draw sigils… I go into both in my blood magick post linked above). Pathworking (article link above) is also a way to evoke and technically, you just need a sigil and the ability to do a semi-guided meditation…

      2) Circles are optional. They serve two purposes: hold in energy and keep energies outside. The first use makes sense, but it’s kind of hard for me to believe that circles prevent energies from flowing into your life. I also only occasionally banish. It’s really about your comfort level. When I began, I used salt circles and did the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram religiously. Now, I’d be hard-pressed to do the LBRP from memory, ha. That said, I think they’re helpful at the beginning to create the proper mental state for evocation and to help you feel safe, etc.

      3) Really, all you need to practice magick is the will, focus, mind state (i.e. “the theta-gamma sync”–I have an audio that helps train you to get into it here: Mind State Training For The Occult). You can even practice in a temple in your mind/on the astral (depends on how you think of all this stuff).

      4) I’m not a parent, so take my advice with a grain of salt, but I wouldn’t worry about it. I haven’t seen any reason to worry about these influences in your home and there are many occultists who are parents. I’m skeptical that most demons are harmful, tbh. Ultimately, though, this would be up to you. So, maybe start with safer entities and move forward. I like Michael Aquino’s thought that the entities we work with are neteru, which is to say a force of nature (see MindStar or my article Left-Hand vs Right-Hand Path for more on this position).

      The problems you’re facing are twofold: there are a lot of approaches that overlap and contradict each other, many from the Middle Ages and many from the 20th century, and occult authors often purposely write in blinds to mislead (who they deem) not serious students. (And of course, there are ideologues, traditionalists, and people completely full of shit…) The best approach is to find a teacher, join a temple or coven, or find one tradition or author that you resonate with, then master it/their teaching.

      Occult, as you likely know, means “covered over”, “concealed” or “hidden”. So, much is left to the explorer themselves, which is freeing and awesome, but also irritating. But the good answer is that there are basic processes and principles and everything else is tradition and existentially dependent… Ultimately, those that succeed in magick experiment with it rather frequently. Hence many of us follow Crowley into “Scientific Illuminism” of which he says to use “the method of science, (with) the aim of religion.” So, experiment and see what happens! (Though, keep in mind the mental skills needed to achieve certain things, e.g. visual evocation requires a lot of mental training whereas chaos magick sigil magick or pathworking require much less.)

      Many modern approaches are based on chaos magick, so that’s a fair paradigm to master, but it’s helpful to know things from the past to really get that paradigm… There’s a book from the Victorian Era called The Magus that’s widely available online. It covers much of the basics, but has more than you need. Taylor Ellwood’s The Process of Magick is also helpful as it encourages you to look at and explore all the different things to see what you need/the minimal amount needed to practice.

      I like Draconian Magick. In that case, a great book to read is Draconian Ritual Book by Asenath Mason.

      Anyway, there’s a lot to these questions. So, I hope that helped! Good luck on your exploration of the LHP! πŸ™‚

      • Thank you so much Fr Lucath for taking the time to read and respond to my questions. I really appreciate it. I will take a look at these sources you mention. I do find EA Koetting’s works a little pricey (esp in Australian dollars!) but I think most can be obtained in paperback, pdf file and they do have a system for paying a certain amount (per month?). Perhaps I should just stop fussing and get on with it πŸ˜‰

        Many thanks and kindest regards, Kristen

  3. so im young and want to have just a honest and friendly conversation with a demon,so who would be a good demon to talk to

    • While being a hypocrite as I started messing with this stuff around age 10, I’m not sure I recommend younger people to do evocations. That said, the demons listed on this page are some of the easier ones to summon and work with.
