This invocation was very successful! I performed the standard incantations, and then invoked EXARP. I asked the great Angel if he were present, and he said yes. I saw a bright image of him within my minds eye-I asked if he would appear in the orb, and he agreed. His face was bright white, and his hair an ever undulating golden-brown. He had the air of the jester about him-a certain playfulness, a joyfulness. His eyes were rectangular and where pupil-less. Just blank white. His clothing was yellow-gold and billowing. I asked him what his nature was and he spoke-first in my mind, and then from my mouth! What?! I've done a number of invocations in my day, and the entities have never spoken through me. I asked him why that was, and he said I was "one of his children".-reffering to my elemental makeup. While speaking through me he said " I am the differentiating force, I am the invisible forces that hold the universe together, and keep it apart. I am gravity and the repulsive force. I am the Word of god, and seperate things so that God might see its own holy Face. " he smelled of cinnamon, felt like motion, and tasted sharply of citrus.
Cool. I asked him if I might invoke XCAI, and he said that's fine. I called her, and she appeared with golden bright hair, and less of a solid form than the outline of a woman. The way she appeared was interesting-she was birthed from his mouth. She told me that while EXARP was the force, she brought the force into action. He was the king, and she was the minister that implemented the king's will. That she could do so because she had a portion of each of the elements in her nature, while the king was pure. She said that this is the way of the forces on the tablet of union-the horizantal name is the king and emobiment of the force, and the vertical name is the minister/active principle-the force at work. The vertical forces take part of their nature from all of the elements, and worked the power of the force within not just their own element, but in all of the elements. (Air of water and air of fire, etc., for example.) They create the necessary co-mingling of forces within forces, and dance out the forces work within the worlds.
Sorry, it's hard to put into words well. It is interesting to experience that one's own makeup-easily discernible by doing a sidereal birth chart-has an effect on literally everything. Including communications and visions in magic.
