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 work with it enabled a sort of Flowering. 

It's worth noting that this growth isn't a goal, but a signpost along the road. Don't get too caught up in them.

  2. I see the same thing. My conclusion is that consciousness is multitasking through several bodies in a group with the same aims. I tested the theory out when I was surprised to find a famous politician hovering between the head & shoulder of another man who bore some resemblance. I happened to have a connection to one of the politician's staff & I sent a message intended for this literal spook & the result was immediate.

    It's not useless. Start with why. What is the motive of the watcher. Figure it out. I believe we are there to intercede & provide a short cut. Or be given something. Why else would we see it?

    It was 2007 & the politician was the prime minister Blair. The place was the King James room of the Holiday Inn at Newbury Park London. I was working as part of the G1K with Neale Donald Walsch. I had this sight for as long as I can remember. But that was the first time I started intervening because I saw a course of action.

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

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
