A demon summoning ritual.

This refers to a set of rituals that summons demons. There are several summoning rituals and they vary according to the type of demon being summoned.
Trevordemonsummoning

One of many books that contain instructions to summon demons.

Generally, summoning a demon would require several ingredients, fire, whether by form of candles or by igniting the ingredients, sigils, and most of the time, a Latin incantation. Although summoning a demon requires spellwork, and are usually performed by witches to draw power from demonic forces, demon summoning rituals could be performed by other people. Examples include hunters who seek to capture a demon, or, in the case of crossroad demons, even ordinary folk.

Crossroad DemonsEdit

This ritual specifically summons crossroad demons. This is usually done to strike a deal or, in the case of hunters, to retract or negotiate other deals or to capture a demon.

IngredientsEdit

Crossroadingredients

Ingredients to summon a crossroad demon.

This ritual requires a crossroad and burying a box in the middle of it. The box must contain a picture of the mortal wishing to make a deal, graveyard dirt, and a bone from a black cat. The crossroad, sometimes must have Yarrow flowers being planted at the crossroads. It helps in the ritual, though appears to not be a necessary component.

IncantationEdit

Unlike most demon summoning rituals, summoning crossroad demons do not require incantations--with the exception being the King of Crossroads, Crowley, who is summoned with a different ritual altogether.

However, in Captives when summoning the crossroad demon possessing Snooki, Sam uses an incantation. The Incantation is in Latin:

Daemon, esto subiecto voluntati meae.

Any DemonEdit

Demonsummoning2

The witch Trevor summoning a demon.

This ritual summons any demon that answers the invocation. This was performed by a young witch named Trevor.

IngredientsEdit

It required several lit candles, a bowl of mixed ingredients atop a symbol containing a pentacle or pentagram with what appeared to be a head of a goat inscribed within it.

IncantationEdit

The incantation was rather short and only one line was clearly audible.

Ad ligandum eos pariter eos coram me.

Exorcised DemonEdit

Summoningexorcizeddemon

The instructions to summon an exorcised demon.

This ritual summons a demon that has previously been exorcised. This ritual was described by a white witch to be the strongest summoning ritual she has ever seen, because the spell can summoned even the demon was casted to the deepest side of the Hell.

IngredientsEdit

It required a bowl of burning coal atop a sigil, the blood of the exorcist, the heart of a dog, and an incantation.

IncantationEdit

The incantation is in Latin, like most incantations to summon demons. Speaking the incantation will cause the earth in surrounding vicinity to violently shake, until the demon is able to manifest in a nearest, suitable vessel.

Te invoco apro fundus inferni

Specific DemonsEdit

It is possible to summon specific demons provided the summoner knows the corresponding ritual. 

AzazelEdit

Azazelsummoning

John summoning Azazel.

Azazel was the first demon shown to be summoned with a ritual, and by extension, a ritual exclusive to him.

IngredientsEdit

The ritual to summon Azazel required acacia, oil of Abrameli, lit candles positioned atop the Sigil of Azazel, also known as the Sigil of Saturn.

IncantationEdit

The summoner must recite an incantation in Latin:

Attenrobendum eos, ad consiendrum, ad ligandum eos, potiter et solvendum, et ad, congregontum eos, 'coram me.

CrowleyEdit

Crowleysummoning

Bobby about to summon Crowley.

Crowley could be summoned through a ritual specific to him, although he could choose to appear with just a simple crossroad demon summoning if he was interested with the deal being made.

IngredientsEdit

Summoning Crowley required several ingredients. Interestingly, the ritual requires the use of a sigil very similar to Azazel's. Lit candles must also be aligned with the sigil. A bowl of several mixed ingredients with the blood of a summoner is also required. The bowl must then be set aflame by throwing a matchstick into it.

IncantationEdit

...Et ad congregandum...eos coram me.

VariationEdit

923Crowley

Dean about to Summon Crowley in Do You Believe In Miracles?

In Do You Believe In Miracles?, Dean using another variation summoning ritual to summon Crowley. It requires a sigil that very different than Bobby's used. A sigil (which constituted by triangle enclosed by circle) had to be drawn and three lit candles had to be aligned with or around the sigil in each tip of the triangle.

The ritual also required various ingredients. The ingredients seem very complex, which consisted by various dried herbs, nuts, and preserved fruits. The ingredients must be put in the bowl which placed atop the sigil, properly mixed, and set aflame. There were no form of any blood offering nor incantation required to perform this summoning spell. Sam later in the end of the episode, later using the same spell to summoned Crowley again. However, its unknown, he mixed the spell from the scratch again, or he simply used the remains of Dean's summoning attempt.

RubyEdit

similarities with the ritual John used to summon Azazel. However, the Latin incantation Sam uses is slightly different from John's:

Ad construgendum, ad ligandum eos, pariter et solvendum, et ad, congregantum eos,coram me.

The sigil Sam draws differs greatly from the one John used, depicting a circle within a single closed triangle, with three additional symbols drawn inside each triangle corner. The placement of the bowl of ingredients also changes; it is placed in the center of the circle. Only three lit candles are used and they are positioned on the tip of the triangle corners.

SamhainEdit

Tracydavis2

The witch Tracy summoning Samhain.

Samhain could only be summoned once every six hundred years. The exact details of how he is summoned were not revealed. However, unlike all other demons, the ritual to summon Samhain is more complex than lesser demons, this is because Samhain was incredibly more powerful than a regular demon. His arrival was carefully prepared by two extremely powerful witches who were able to hide themselves effectively against angels. Summoning him also broke one of the 66 seals.

l to summoning must be performed by two powerful witches. It required three blood sacrifices to performed over three days, the last one on the final day of the Harvest, Halloween. Blood from the final sacrifice must then be collected in a chalice, where one of the witches will recite a Latin incantation at a black altar with pentagram, 5 black candles, goat skull, an unidentified grey rock/ore, a chalice filled by blood which collected before, and (strangely) a Coptic cross. Once done, the earth will crack allowing Samhain to take possession of a meatsuit.

Special DemonsEdit

DaevaEdit

Daeva

The altar to summon and control a Daeva.

This shadow demon could be summoned by the use of an altar with a Zoroastrian symbol drawn in blood, candles, talismans, a card depicting the same symbol, among other things. Keeping the altar intact is important to maintain control over it.

AcheriEdit

This demon was summoned by the special child Ava simply through the power of her will and mind.
