Symbols and the Sphere of Sensation

Ave,

I've been working to increase the amount of LVX I can move and contain, and figured that extended Middle Pillar practice would help with that. My normal practice involves a daily MP as part of the ritual battery; the actual Middle Pillar seldom goes on for longer than ten minutes. Yesterday, I performed the fountain of the MP for a good 45 minutes, and the results were interesting.

One things that stood out was the "appearance" of the LXV in my vision. Where usually it descends from the fountain like drops, after twenty minutes or so it appeared to descend in a sheet of light instead. This is probably not significant, but is definitely interesting. I've been donig the Middle Pillar for years now, though-the visionary part has been mostly consistent, so this stood out for me. I didn't get the light-headed feeling I used to get when practicing lengthy energy work without the vibratory formulae in the Middle Pillar, although I did feel exalted, full of grace. I'm sure the balancing effect of the vibratory formulae had much to do with it.

Another thing that stood out was that I saw symbols within my own Sphere. Well, symbol in the singular anyway. About 30 minutes in--when the LVX was like a sheet of light and no longer droplets-- at the height of the fountain above my head was a Red cross within a White triangle. I turned my attention to it as I continued the fountain circulation, and it appeared as if the sheet of brilliant LVX that descended around me emanated from that symbol. That was all that I saw, but this continued until I finished the ritual.

This was notable for me because it was a first-I imagine it isn't too uncommon, but thought I'd share.

In LVX,

AIT

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…
