Quick Note

Ave,

V.H.Fra.SR communicated on another blog (Fra.Peregrin's excellent blog at magicoftheordinary.wordpress.com) about our curriculum, and I thought it would be good to clarify that all my Enochian work isn't part of the curriculum in my current Grade. I'd removed info about my grade a while ago so there wouldn't be that confusion, but as it is generally known that I am a member of the Outer Order, I figured I'd go ahead and state that plain. The Enochian that I am doing apparently is Inner Order work. Just so you know. We haven't moved everything into the Outer, primarily the Greater and Supreme Invoking/Banishing rituals.

  1. Just one important point that I forgot to mention on Pergrins blog. The curriculum in our Order is not set in stone, as in non-variable. As I have written in one of my recent blogs, the tutor-student relationship is paramount in our teaching system. Whatever a student does when it comes to actual work is someting between these two persons. It is the tutor who finally decides if someone is eligible for advancement. And no student is alike. Therefore there of course is head room for changes and alterations of curriculum if it is juged that the student would benefit from it. The curriculum as presented on my blog and elsewere is a general guidline which has proven to be opitimal for most students. It is also a minimal requirenment what a student must master in our Order in a normal case scenario. But the tutor has the final word when it comes to the exact requirenments.

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…
