Telesmata and Gamahe (BOC)

 Talismans and Gamahe
A Talisman is an image created to represent and contain a spiritual force. To create a Talisman, you first craft the image that represents the force-you will find the Images in the correspondence list at the end of this chapter. Create the image in the planet's corresponding color. After creating the image-which must be done during the Planetary hour of the force, preferably on the Day of the Planet as well-the desired result is written on the belly of the figure. The name of the persons to be affected are written on the Head of the Figure. The symbol of the Planet or Element should be written upon the chest of the figure. On the back, write the time within which you need the work accomplished. It is recommended that you give at least a lunar month for full completion. If this amount of time is too long, it is wise to evoke the Planetary Spirit and request it's assistance in completing the task.
A Gamahe is a talisman created using abstract representations (such as symbols and sigils) instead of a direct representation. The standard RR et AC-style talisman is actually a Gamahe, by the standards of our forebears.
***A quick note of thanks to John Michael Greer, who teaches about Gamahe's in his book "The Art and Practice of Geomancy"


  1. Lol, I am reading Greer's work and have found myself here looking for a gamahe definition. Small earth.

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 s

Golden Dawn--WTF

Ave, I've been trying my level best to not talk about this latest eruption of foolishness, but good folks are being dragged through the mud (on both sides), and I've grown weary. This whole thing is a steaming pile of bullshit. No one is trying to "destroy" the Golden Dawn, that's just silliness. No one is trying to become the only "legitimate" Golden Dawn order either. I'm sickened by this display. Argue in a scholarly fashion! When did this sniping nonsense become the norm? A debate between honorable and wise gents (both of whom I consider Brothers in the Work) like Fraters AM and SR about the Sabbatian Qabbalah would be wonderful, if we could cut all the bullshit out. Quality conversations, ya'll.  Skip the vitriol, the name calling and the idiotic marketing methods. Yes, it is idiocy. This "McGolden Dawn" nonsense is stupid.Ya'll. GROW THE FUCK UP. For the record, The A+O's transmissions are valid, they are real. T

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 wor
