Scrying the 29th Aethyr RII , invoking GONZIAM

I performed the invocations as normal, although I experienced some strangeness doing so. The incantations were having a more-intense-than-usual affect on me; its a bit difficult to describe. It was as if I were holding a firehose, and had turned up the water pressure beyond the norm.....the incantations wriggled and thrashed about in my grasp. The moon was full-perhaps that is the cause of this. My previous Aethyric scryings were done fairly early in the moon's cycle. I'll just have to keep tracking, so that I san put this to use in the future.
I invoke the Governor, and he appears immediately in the orb. I ask him his name and he gives it. He appears like a classic angel, robed in white and winged and crowned. It had six stars floating about it. I asked it about RII, and received no answer. I asked if it had something to teach me-it told me that I needed to practice a broader sense of responsibility-that I should view all things that occurred in my life as being rooted in my own actions. Not because it was true, but because it was a useful way to approach things. I'd thought I was already doing that, but he pointed out an area where this wasn't the case-in my personal relationships with folk.
I asked him about crowley's assignation of the Governor's and Aethyrs to the Tree of Life through the planes, and he said I should use it.....because it was useful. But that it wasn't strictly true. That I was trying to fit a world into a tiny box. He said I could filter my experiences that way if I wished, but that truly exploring the Aethyrs would not always result in easily categorized images-he asked me "what is the nature of California?". Of course I said, "uhh....." and he said "right."

This is of course an (arguably) semi humurous interpretation of the thought bombs and visions.....the conversation didn't literally go like that.

He spent some time teaching me about the nature of truth, and how what is true changes based on understanding-and of how truth can be applied wisely, and situationally.

After our conversation I wanted to explore the Aethyr and had a vision of first a sky, and then an island afloat in the sky, with winged and robed angels floating at spaced intervals about it. I wasn't looking for anything profound, and I found it. Haha.

Another interesting experience, another valuable lesson.

Results: Spagyric Tincture using an unknown flower

I've created and refined my first spagryic tincture, and gotten results from it's use! For those not in the know, a spagyric tincture is an alchemical product made using a plant. The Process is deceptively simple; the results immediate and powerful. To create spagryic tinctures, the following equipment is required: 1 Mason Jar 1 Mortar and Pestle 1 Knife, blessed in Ritual Spagyric Supplies 1 Plant, that will be evolved by our Alchemy 1 Container containing a pure Alcohol 1 Retort 1 Butane Burner w/Fuel 1 Tripod/stand for the Retort Filtering Paper-lab grade is nice, but a couple of coffee filters will do just fine. 1 ceramic container for heating 1 Receiving Flask You will need some plastic wrap-to cover the lid of the Mason Jar, to prevent the metal from contacting the tincture. First Method Pick the plant during either the Planetary hour of the pow

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

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 spir
