Invocation of HCOMA

Ave,

Performed the incantations, then invoked and requested an audience with the Angel HCOMA. Immediately had images of the open sea-not suprising, but not enlightening either. I asked if HCOMA was present, and got a "yes". Usually the visions take off a bit on their own, but not this time. I vibrated her name again to get a better connection. I asked her if she was there and got a yes again. The problem was with me, it seemed. I asked her what her scent was, and I smelled the ocean, pregnant with salt. I asked for her sound, and I got a dull roar-the ocean again. I asked for her form and I received an image of a golden eye afloat in black space....and still have no idea what that means. I asked again, and she said that she had no form; that she was formless in nature. I asked what her function was, and she said meaning. Context. Experience. She also said that my makeup-that I was all Earth and Air, with very little of water-made it difficult for me to receive her and communicate with her on a surface level. That she and I could communicate best experientally, and through feeling. She gave me an analogy to work with-she showed me a holy book, and its cover and structure and pages where NANTA. The spaces in between pages, the very idea of differentiation was EXARP. The words themselves where BITOM and HCOMA. The two did not seem seperate, more like poles. The ink was mostly HCOMA, the meaning was mostly BITOM. There was defenitely interplay between the two, although I don't pretend to have grasped all of it.

She also told me that the reason Faith keeps coming up in my lessons, is that my earthy and airy nature reduce my sensitivity to subtler things-that I should rely on divination whenever my vision leaves a gap. That I should keep my technique multi-varied. She also intimated that was why Geomancy has been so effective for me-it is an earth/air divinatory system by nature. Interesting, because id never considered if from that angle before.

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…
