Enochian Chess Board of Earth


I've noticed that there are almost no images of the Enochian Chess Boards (that aren't absolutely horrible) available to those of us working that system; when I first started studying Enochian Chess, I bought a ready made board from a certain well meaning individual. When it arrived, I was thoroughly disappointed at the quality-while I appreciate that he made the effort when no one else had, it was not suitable for use. The boards need to be beautiful as far as I am concerned-bad coloring or a sense of cheapness ruin my concentration. So, in order to make my personal boards I'm doing the following:

-Making high quality vector-based images of the boards, with the full correspondences.
-Uploading them to, and having the board printed with quality inks and on a pleasant wooden base.
-Hand painting the Figurines.
-Distributing the images so my fellow magicians don't have to sweat for a week on their laptops. =)

Below is the Enochian Chess Board of Earth-click on it for the big 12x12 version, perfect for printing on the boards at plywerk. And no, plywerk isn't paying me-I wish they were...those boards are expensive! I'm just stoked to have a solution for making the chessboard that is beautiful and simple to execute. I'll post the boards of Air, Fire, and Water as I complete them.

I make no claims at being a great scholar-there may be mistakes. You're welcome to the boards, just be sure to examine them well. If you want a simple way to create the boards, the method I mentioned above couldn't be easier, and with beautiful result. I'll post images of my physical set as soon as it's completed.

Remember to click on the image to get it at the appropriate size.

Quick overview of Simple Spagyric Technique

The following is a simple rundown for creating Spagyric tinctures and Elixirs, from the manuscript 'Book of the Blossoming Flower." I wrote it so that there would be a baseline, unobfuscated understanding of how to make Spagyric products with extremely basic tools. I posted something similar earlier, but without explaining much as far as how the steps relate to the classic alchemical progression. So, here we are!
Making a Spagyric Tincture
1.Take up your plant, and on the Day/Hour corresponding to the energy you wish to refine (Planet, Element, or Sign.) Chop the plant into fine pieces on your cutting board, beginning the Mortificatio stage. Sunrise on the Day corresponding to a planet is best-for astrological forces. I had success capturing the Astrological powers by beginning the work when the Sign is in the Ascendant, preferably during an Elemental Tide that corresponds to the Triplicity the Sign is associated with. For Elemental powers, I have found that beginning the work …

Bullshit Siddhis

Nsala malongo,
So.....powers. They exist. You work your alchemy, and they start popping up.
It isn't what you expect.
It's not like the comics.
Subtle things happen. You get a little something here, a big something there. Some of them appear useless at first.
Some years ago, after work in the upper cinnabar field, I gained the dubiously awesome ability to see a sort of spirit double floating around people. At first I was BEYOND stoked, and thought I was well on my way toward ascension from my normal state into a vicious and powerful spiritual overlord, as was foretold. By me. When I was like, fourteen.
Then, after the wonder wore off, I realized that this was absolutely useless. The double gave me no information about the person, no power to manipulate myself or the other. It was just there. So. Countless hours of heat and concentration, and the end result was this?

Of course it *was* useful in the long-run, as a mark of my developing spiritual sight. And continuing to wor…

Working Nature

Sala maleco,

Medicine is messy. Sorcery is messy. Lot of times you see folks posting images of pristine altars where they have their work's going, and that's cool. However,  I can't help but notice that these altars are regularly almost purely about symbol, with little in the way of materia.

*Warning: There will be ranting. Feel free to disagree....just don't share your opinion if you cannot handle debate.*

This can work, and often does. Nothing wrong with it. It is, in my opinion, lacking depth.

Working spirit without Materia, in my experience, just plain doesn't get the same result as working with the virtue of natural, fully-manifested substances.

Now, there is plenty (-endless reams-) of textual evidence for materia's ascendancy in practical work in near every text written about actual practical sorcerous work. See *all* of your grimoires nearly, see Picatrix, Alexander's Treasure, Agrippa, etc etc etc.  This isn't a Black-African sorcery vs Europe…
