Invocation of King EDLPRNA

Invoked the king of the Fire Tablet, so that I could begin working it. He appeared quickly and within the crystal. He was unsuprisingly fiery in appearance, with dusky reddish skin, hair the color and shape of flickering flames. His eyes where a flat white. He didn't wear any clothing, or a crown. I asked him about that, and he said he was "crowned by his nature." I took that to mean that the positions of Angels are determined automatically by their nature-that a King couldn't be any other than a King. Interesting.
I asked if I could connect with him, and did so at the heart feeling a strong rush of energy. I asked him if he would initiate me into Fire, and he said "Certainly, but it may be painful." I saw a small flickering flame travel up the connection we had made, and when it reached my heart it created an intense sensation. Not unduly uncomfortable. I asked him to show me where my understanding of fire was lacking in my life, and he showed me how my application and of it affected my work, love, and spiritual life. He gave me leave to work the realm of Fire, and to invoke those entities that were below him.
I had a bit of trouble with my focus near the end; he seemed to have left the crystal, but responded when I spoke to him.
Performed the Rose Cross in closing, and am free of the whole anxious/paranoid bit from the previous Invocation.

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 w

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

Hoodoo and Palo Mayombe

This is an article I wrote for the Lemba Congo American Society for the Preservation of Palo Mayombe (or simply the Society, as we call it, because that's a whole lot of name) that addresses heating and cooling spirits, and the links of tradition and approach between Hoodoo and Palo Mayombe.    There is a way of thinking about reality--and learning to interact with it--that empowers all of the Congo-rooted magical systems currently alive here in the West. Having years of experience as a conjurer in the Hoodoo tradition here in America, and learning from an experienced Tata the methods of Palo Mayombe as an Engueyo,  I continually am finding parallels between the two. There are two ideas in particular that stand out that I wanted to discuss. Heating and Cooling Spirits In Hoodoo, we "heat" a spirit to great activity using herbs and roots and powders, and "cool" a spirit using water and herbs and roots as well. The concept of heating and cooling a spirit
