First Principal Spirit is a King ruling in the East, called Bael.
He maketh thee to go Invisible. He ruleth over 66 Legions of
Infernal Spirits. He appeareth in divers shapes, sometimes like a
Cat, sometimes like a Toad, and sometimes like a Man, and
sometimes all these forms at once. He speaketh hoarsely. This is
his character which is used to be worn as a Lamen before him who
calleth him forth, or else he will not do thee homage.

Why Have So Many Humans Worshipped Bael?
Ancient historical records indicate that Bael, the first principal
spirit listed in the Goetia, has been the subject of human worship
for thousands of years.
The Hebrews were admonished in the Old Testament for turning away
from JHVH (an alien imposter) and bowing down to Bael. The
Sumerians worshipped several gods, including Marduk, another name
for Bael, also called Baal. The Cannanites and Amorites also
worshipped Bael. Some believe the Egyptian god Osris was none
other than Bael in disguise.
I suspect that this spirit, who seems to have escaped Solomon's
bindings even though he is named among the 72 Goetian Spirits, may
still have bands of secret worshippers bowing to him at
The irony of such behavior is that Bael cannot serve, nor admire
anyone created above him, yet foolish enough to bow down to him.
He thus makes a mockery of human religious zeal.
sigil, almost an image of a dancing stick figure with extended
crosses in both hands, portrays a prankster who enjoys misbehaving
whenever the opportunity arises. And the joke, for him, seems to
be aimed at formal religion, a creation of the angels and designed
to entrap the human race.
That Bael has successfully drawn thousands of angelic followers
into a lair of his own making may seem to be a silent attack
against the angels. Sad that the humans, who were the victims of
his tricks, never appreciated the humor in his antics.
old image of Bael, portrayed for years after early summoners
caught glimpses of three heads and what they thought were spidery
legs, was a close portrayal of the way this spirit really appears.
But they thought Bael had the heads of a man, a cat and a toad.
Magickian and master remote viewer Aaron C. Donahue, however,
caught the real image of Bael during a recent session in his own
private temple. This image, found at
Aaron's web site,
shows Bael as a three-headed and very alien appearing entity
emerging from an inverted crown. The crown is an indication of the
spirit's title. He is a king.
According to S. L. MacGregor Mathers, Bael is the King of the East
and rules over 66 legions of spirits.
Look closely at the Donahue drawing, which shows Bael as he really
looks to a remote viewer. The two faces are clearly alien. The
face on the left, showing only eyes, seems to be robed, while the
partly hidden face on the right shows one piercing eye mindful of
the gaze of a cat. Small wonder the ancients mistook that head as
that of a cat. Wrapped around the neck is the head and body of
something serpentine, identified in the old drawings as that of a
toad. Even the upside down eye of the serpent is staring directly
at the artist.
There is cunning reflected here. Bael may enjoy his jokes, but he
is not one to trust. There is no love of humanity reflected in
those eyes. Nor should we blame him.
There may be another, deep rooted and subconscious reason why many
humans feel an impulse to worship Bael. We look at him as a
"father" figure. Donahue said the remote viewing session with this
spirit revealed some kind of possible link with human origins on
Donahue writes on his site: "Representing three elements of the
evolved human brain, Bael presents itself within three human like
faces. Notice that the lowest face appears reptilian.
"It is clear that Bael involves the human genetic influence by
three separate entities. It is possible that psychological
evolution could be the means by which this is completed as well as
the use of other technologies," Donahue says.
He concludes: "One might consider Bael to be an early human father
or at least an architect working in concert with other 'fallen'
It is commonly stated that when Bael speaks, the voice is coarse,
perhaps gravelly. He is said to have the power of invisibility.
That is he can become invisible, and perhaps make his summoner
invisible upon request.
