What I will say, however, is that in my younger days of following two or three systems at a time, I easily would become distracted by one or the other and not make progress in the other or one.
If you know what I mean

As far as multiple familiars, sure. Like having more than one dog. I guess it depends on whether you're giving over your own guidance to some "HGA" or being the master and having the servitors fetch.
Which angle are you looking for?

That's not to say that the rituals can't be adapted for your personal genius, your native daemon, your HGA, or whatever it is you seek communion with. But I don't believe that is what these rituals are, so I see no reason to assume there's exclusivity there.
It's also my personal experience, the experience of others I've talked to, and well attested in anthropological records, that there's no real exclusivity in the spirit world when it comes to "supernatural assistants" in general. So why would I assume there's such exclusivity here, in the PGM rituals, unless otherwise stated?
