Invocation of NANTA

Ave Fraters et Sorors,

I sat down after vibrating all of the incantations, and then making my formal invitation to and Invocation of NANTA.

Saw a plain, with a dark, starry sky. The quality of the light was that of just before complete sunset-there was a thin ribbon of light wrapping the peaks of blue-purple mountains in the distance. The sky itself began as orange-purple at the mountain peaks, and darkened almost immediately to a deep black from which stars shone.  NANTA stood before me, and there was no mistaking her/it. It was huge, so large that I couldn't quite perceive it-I would focus on it and see parts of it, but it seemed the actual shapes of the Angel were beyond me. It was a huge, towering thing. It was as if I were a 2 dimensional entity trying to perceive something that was 3 dimensional. NANTA spoke to me, and it's voice was solid and very cold. I asked it what it's nature was, and it said simply "form." I was expecting it to say that I couldn't comprehend it, but it gave me none of that. NANTA said it was the very idea, concept, and spirit of Form-that it was the solidification of matter, the architect and the building at once . It governs over and shapes the form of creation, as dictated by the Ineffable One. It was immense. It showed my a black pyramid, with a glowing, dancing golden female figure inside. Spirit within matter, dancing because it needed matter to do so. Matter enlivened by the presence of the Spirit. It showed me a reaper like figure-it wasn't menacing, it just Was. Interesting. I asked if it were male or female, and of course it said "neither, and both". The cold voice definitely had a female-if not feminine at all-tone, and NANTA was neither talkative nor imperius. Not flashy either-dark. It was interesting to see that it stood as a mountain, still and immobile in my vision, whearas BITOM moved constantly inside of and through things. Things moved into NANTA, and that's where they stayed. It stood there under that sky, and it felt like the heaviness of size and time. I opened my Heart to connect with NANTA, and I felt a flood and a heavy "kick" of sorts, and NANTA invited me to invoke it's subservient Angels.

I plan on Invoking all of the Great Angels of the Tablet of Union before working with the tablets themselves-each tablet is a mix of the elements, and to work through Fire, for instance, one would have to Work with the Angels of Fire not just on the fire tablet, but in the Fiery quarter of each tablet. I'm tentatively planning to alternate between Elements with each working, so that I don't spend a year working with just one element and risking massive imbalance.

This was another solid vision-I've grown comfortable with the Enochian incantations, and my scrying skills are getting a workout like they've never seen.
I need to start thinking about incorporating more of my senses into these conversations-I think perhaps I'm missing important information by not delving into smell and texture when connecting with the Angels. Its very easy to stick with sight and sound; adding the other senses can only add more useful layers of meaning to each communication.

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…

Palo Mayombe

Ave,

I've been engaged in a deep study of Frater Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold's work Palo Mayombe, and have been steadily amazed at the deep understandings within it. For a long time I've known some small measure of what Palo is--that it is a worship-centered religion, that it is necromantically powerful. I've also known what it isn't-- Palo is not just black magic, it isn't a club an African/Afro-Latino sorcerer wields to beat people over the head. That being said, engaging in metaphysical contests with it's practitioners is generally un-wise....they don't mess about. Palo Mayombe is a fierce religion, but it Is a religion.

What I didn't know was the true depths of it's Wisdom and alchemical understanding. That's right,alchemical understanding. Palo Mayombe isn't a simple practice. It's a multi-layered and living religious and alchemical practice, and it's grasp of the forces of life are unparalleled. It's spiritual technolo…
