GIRP Fire, with Divination

Ave,

Performed the GIRP Fire as directed by divination-I needed to determine whether I should spend more time working with the force. Communion and divination revealed I needed to perform the GIRP once more for a specific purpose; to ask for Wisdom and Understanding of the element of Fire. I performed the battery as normal but with the recent addition of the LIRP directly before the GIRP, which worked quite well. I felt a receptivity to the force. The invocations hit me harder, in a good way.

After stating my intent and performing the Middle Pillar, I sat in the throne to meditate. I immediately saw a red triangle-a good sign. I continued the circulation, and then fell into vision. I felt as if I were an unborn infant. I was surrounded with red and gold, blood and flesh. I was still, and then I was struck! My heart began to beat, the bio-electricity flowed throughout me. The vision stayed here for a moment, and then I was born out into the world. At this point the perspective changed to the third person--I watched the baby as it took in it's first breath, and that breath was laced with Solar fire. The vision moved forward, and I saw myself as a teenager. My body again was lit with Fire, as the hormonal changes of puberty worked their magic to start another kind of growth. Again, the vision moved forward, and I lay with my wife-we are both transparent, and the Fire within us combines to empower new life. I asked where it went from there, but the vision was still--I felt it was being communicated that this was the natural culmination of that particular kind of Fire energy, that the life creating cycle was a sort of culmination. It was quite a vision.

It faded, and I continued to meditate upon the red triangle. Next, I saw myself projecting the red light that symbolizes fire, and I was struck yet again! The force that is Fire isn't something that can be visualized, it is formless by nature. The symbols I use to work with it are exactly that, symbols. They aren't the force itself, and each individual symbol may describe one aspect of the force but doesn't capture it's whole. Even the descriptions of Fire that we use (heat, expansion, growth) describe some functions of the force, but they aren't the force. For example- I am tall, dark skinned, with black hair and a burly build. This is an accurate description of my appearance, but the description isn't me. I'm not sure I'm describing this correctly, but it was a revelation.

The rest of the ritual went well. I was very grateful, and expressed my thanks. The subject of fire is massive, everyone of the elements is a multi-varied and subtle force. It will take more than one session to gain the full understanding of it, but all I need to do is meditate on the triangle to receive further vision, which I fully intend to do.

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…
