The Magic Square

Sunday, 26 December 2010


I can feel a deep one coming on.

It is there hovering around the right side of my outer perception.

In between the here and the there where magick flows.

I look for something else to amend this however this is not thought and nor is it feeling. This is something else.

To be haunted by familiar company what a loss it would be if I could no more ascertain their movements in this field.

If this is not merely thought and not merely feeling then is this truly a reality or something more, it has transcended the ability to voice in recognisable words.

It simply exists woven between my particles. Yet what does it do?

It perhaps is a reflection of subjective energies projected on the conscious objective field. At least a reminder of our own interconnectedness. A nod or whisper that can be manifested in a loop - either way. At one singular moment from within and at the same moment from without. To one extreme passive at the other it could be grasped and stirred in spirals to a maelstrom cone of energy.

There a hint at purpose however is that The Purpose or the use that I have decided upon?

So then what is the point of my decision to USE this energy.

Yes it can effect the field and in this basic interconnectedness it can effect every field.

There is more, the above is only the perception of one small part of a subjective observation of manifested left hemisphere energy projected on the right awareness.

Despite all these considerations...

I feel a deep one coming on

The End of a Wiccan

From the age of three I recall my visions - from that age; I knew reality was more than this field of consciousness. By sixteen I had studied much and in earnest. I considered myself a solitary Wiccan - by twenty; I was formerly initiated into a working Celtic coven and began to work very hard to support Wicca. Life is full of up's and downs and I have developed my own way. The High Priest and the High-priestess who initiated me returned my measure and I passed through the degrees with ease over the years. During that time they always said I was a Mage not a Witch.

I have studies all religions, philosophies, myths and symbols I advanced as Mage and can hold my own in any debate. In any realm or any dimension. I know no fear.

Now I am in a very different place. No better than the next person. I only ask for a small measure of respect and to be accepted without Judgement or Opinion. For I will leave you be if you harm none.

Juxtaposed to the above I will break you like an egg should you fail to offer me what I offer to you freely. To say this is my right - I give love, support, compassion, empathy, understanding and acceptance. At least attempt to do the same.

If you wish to oppose me you oppose your own higher will.

There are many mansions in the kingdom which one you choose is of your free will.

Over the past two weeks I have seen too many examples of Wiccan's claiming superiority via their structure of degrees, claim rules and laws that in turn creates Dogma. What could possibly be more damaging to Humanities Evolution than creating another set of Dogma's to claim control and superiority of our fellows?

For 2000 years have we not seen a world ripped apart by monotheistic patriarchs who base a religion based on fear and oppression yet demand blind faith, hope etc on it's subjects!

And what I see is that no religion has the answer to our problems.

Sucking the thumb of illusion and expecting a pat on the back that it's all going to be OK is a delusion not a solution.

It's very easy to be religious something completely different to become holy. And there is not one human on this planet who can claim that or claim to be enlightened.

It has sickened me greatly. I will continue to support a little in my own way.

I am no longer Wiccan.
I am just a man. I will admit Pagan. Wizard, Fool, Discordant

13th Sign

A Question and an Answer

I used to have a rather long discourse on the subject on my old blog now deleted for my own patience..

Imagine if you will 13 signs across a more blended solar and lunar centric time. Now since discarded, after all many died in the name of our current calendar: yet they, (the alleged initiates to mystery and illuminati), have hidden the occidental occult mysteries and this is but one of them.

See how we meet and connect in this time cycle is where souls connect from the past.

Aged we are by aeons some remember that in this now we drag kicking and screaming the secrets of the ages from the void which must be passed to have union with our true higher will which is one and the same as that of the mulitverse.

The serpent holder is part of this transformation of healing humanities consciousness - The Scorpion is the Serpent of Wisdom borne aloft by the eagle man another twist in the precession of the equinoxes - aloft it flies over the centaur of the Galactic Centre the alleged black hole at Sagittarius B - yet if it is super massive black hole is as empirical science alleges.. why does this galaxy not be absorbed too soon in this Kulpa to another Night of Brahma? Why? Another secret in the knowing of quantum physics and magick - there was no Big Bang we are but the conscious out breath of the unconscious source.

The Sagittarius B galactic centre will along with other planets be in alignment to initiate the destructive healing of our DNA in December 21st 2012 - the recycling of matter is continuous ..

These above are as below - again my words once thoughts became inspired and feeling became experience that became an understanding a moot vacancy beyond such concepts as faith, hope and belief.

Cycles of Light

I am exploding in pure white light - the fire is stars manifest in this plain these elements mix and in the water, become as a rainbow all colours blend as one. - Their sound that of creation!

As I form from fire and water to lava, now I am as the warm earth again my hot moisture mixes with the air to once again twinkle between the stars from whence we came.

Câd Goddeu

The Battle of the Trees

I have been in many shapes,
Before I attained a congenial form.

I have been a narrow blade of a sword.
(I will believe it when it appears.)

I have been a drop in the air.
I have been a shining Star.
I have been a word in a book.
I have been a book originally.
I have been a light in a lantern.

A year and a half.
I have been a bridge for passing over -
Three-score rivers.
I have journeyed as an eagle.
I have been a boat on the sea.
I have been a director in battle.
I have been the string of a child's swaddling clout.

I have been a sword in the hand.
I have been a shield in the fight.
I have been the string of a harp,
Enchanted for a year
In the foam of water.

I have been a poker in the fire.
I have been a tree in a covert.
There is nothing in which I have not been.

I have fought, though small,
In the Battle of Goddeu Brig,
Before the Ruler of Britain,
Abounding in fleets.
Indifferent bards pretend,
They pretend a monstrous beast,
With a hundred heads,
And a grievous combat
At the root of the tongue.
And another fight there is
At the back of the head.

A toad having on his thighs
A hundred claws,
A spotted crested snake,
For punishing in their flesh
A hundred souls on account of their sins.

I was in Caer efynedd,
Thither were hastening grasses and trees.

Wayfarers perceive them,
Warriors are astonished
At a renewal of the conflicts
Such as Gwydion made.
There is calling on Heaven,
And on Christ that he would effect
Their deliverance,
The all-powerful Lord.
If the Lord had answered,
Through charms and magic skill,
Assume the forms of the principal trees,
With you in array
Restrain the people
Inexperienced in battle.

When the trees were enchanted
There was hope for the trees,
That they should frustrate the intention
Of the surrounding fires....
Better are three in unison,
And enjoying themselves in, a circle,
And one of them relating
The story of the deluge,
And of the cross of Christ,
And of the Day of judgement near at hand.
The alder-trees in the first line,
They made the commencement.
Willow and quicken tree,
They were slow in their array.
The plum is a tree
Not beloved of men;
The medlar of a like nature,
Over coming severe toil.
The bean bearing in its shade
And army of phantoms.
The raspberry makes
Not the best of food.
In shelter live,
The privet and the woodbine,
And the ivy in its season.
Great is the gorse in battle.
The cherry-tree had been reproached.

The birch, though very magnanimous,
Was late in arraying himself;
It was not through cowardice,
But on account of his great size.
The appearance of the ...
Is that of a foreigner and a savage.

The pine-tree in the court,
Strong in battle,
By me greatly exalted
In the presence of kings,
The elm-trees are his subjects.
He turns not aside the measure of a foot,
But strikes right in the middle,
And at the farthest end.
The hazel is the judge,
His berries are thy dowry.

The privet is blessed.
Strong chiefs in war
And the ... and the mulberry.
Prosperous the beech-tree.

The holly dark green,
He was very courageous:
Defended with spikes on every side,
Wounding the hands.
The long-enduring poplars
Very much broken in fight.
The plundered fern;
The brooms with their offspring:
The furze was not well behaved
Until he was tamed
The heath was giving consolation,
Comforting the people -
The black cherry-tree was pursuing.

The oak-tree swiftly moving,
Before him tremble heaven and earth,
Stout doorkeeper against the foe
Is his name in all lands.

The corn-cockle bound together,
Was given to be burnt.
Others were rejected
On account of the holes made
By great violence
In the field of battle.

Very wrathful the ...
Cruel the gloomy ash.
Bashful the chestnut-tree,
Retreating from happiness.
There shall be a black darkness,
There shall be a shaking of the mountain,
There shall be a purifying furnace,
There shall first be a great wave,
And when the shout shall be heard,
Putting forth new leaves are the tops of the beech,
Changing form and being renewed from a withered state;
Entangled are the tops of the oak.

From the Gorchan of Maelderw.
Smiling at the side of the rock
(Was) the pear-tree not of an ardent nature.

Neither of mother or father,
When I was made,
Was my blood or body;
Of nine kinds of faculties,
Of fruit of fruits,
Of fruit God made me,
Of the blossom of the mountain primrose,
Of the buds of trees and shrubs,
Of earth of earthly kind.

When I was made
Of the blossoms of the nettle,
Of the water of the ninth wave,
I was spell-bound by Math
Before I became immortal.

I was spell-bound by Gwydion,
Great enchanter of the Britons,
Of Eurys, of Eurwn,
Of Euron, of Medron,
In myriads of secrets,
I am as learned as Math....
I know about the Emperor
When he was half burnt.
I know the star-knowledge
Of stars before the earth (was made),
Whence I was born,
How many worlds there are.
It is the custom of accomplished bards
To recite the praise of their country.

I have played in Lloughor,
I have slept in purple.
Was I not in the enclosure
With Dylan Ail Mor,
On a couch in the centre
Between the two knees of the prince
Upon two blunt spears?
When from heaven came
The torrents into the deep,
Rushing with violent impulse.
(I know) four-score songs,
For administering to their pleasure.

There is neither old nor young,
Except me as to their poems,
Any other singer who knows the whole of the nine hundred
Which are known to me,
Concerning the blood-spotted sword.

Honour is my guide.
Profitable learning is from the Lord.
(I know) of the slaying of the boar,
Its appearing, its disappearing,
Its knowledge of languages.
(I know) the light whose name is Splendour,
And the number of the ruling lights
That scatter rays of fire
High above the deep.

I have been a spotted snake upon a hill;
I have been a viper in a lake;
I have been an evil star formerly.
I have been a weight in a mill.
My cassock is red all over.
I prophesy no evil.

Four score puffs of smoke
To every one l who will carry them away:
And a million of angels,
On the point of my knife.

Handsome is the yellow horse,
But a hundred times better
Is my cream-coloured one,
Swift as the sea-mew,
Which cannot pass me
Between the sea and the shore.
Am I not pre-eminent in the field of blood?

I have a hundred shares of the spoil.
My wreath is of red jewels,
Of gold is the border of my shield.

There has not been born one so good as I,
Or ever known,
Except Goronwy,
From the dales of Edrywy.
Long and white are my fingers,
It is long since I was a herdsman.
I travelled over the earth
Before I became a learned person.

I have travelled, I have made a circuit,
I have slept in a hundred islands;
I have dwelt in a hundred cities.
Learned Druids,
Prophesy ye of Arthur?
Or is it me they celebrate,
And the Crucfixion of Christ,
And the Day of Judgement near at hand,
And one relating
The history of the Deluge ?
With a golden jewel set in gold
I am enriched;
And I am indulging in pleasure
Out of the oppressive toil of the goldsmith.

My First Poem Written in 1985 - This Body was 15.

A Poem and Prose of Anything the Evil of Possession
Possessions own Tools Possessors are,
Abominations place is where fools are.

Lords of Power, Lords of Might.
Time has come to begin thy final fight,
And in this cause you are needed to sever ever the darkening haste.

Crimson Horsemen to pass you by,
Crimson as the blood lit sky,
Crimson as the freshest red rose,
Crimson as life’s own blood.
Over the plains on horseback gallop,
Over the hills under phantoms shadows,
Down a glade amongst the farmers furrows,
Colliding together pastels on a palette of sliding plates,
Atop the shattered corpses in they byre,
Fire and Flame leap from the farmyard barn after a drunken yarn.

Crimson Wolves eyes, heard howling in the twilight,
Crimson throats raw with tone,
Crimson stained the ozone layer,
Crimson layer of mankind the bloody slayer.

Drawn and halted overseeing the towers and wastes a atop now a mountain plateau where morbid shadows are spent in paranoiac ecstasy.

Lava thrust and earth trembles, the created Satan a hand only is out grasping for more twisted souls he took
And still the wolves once grey matted redder more blood they taste,
Once where buffalo grazed now is nothing but stained carrion hates.

Crimson twisted over,
Crimson nails, clawing, deeper,
Crimson as that vampire dream,
Crimson torn and forlorn hopes they scream.

No battlements need they crumble, down the valley still a rumble.

Broadswords have drawn another usurping blow and decapitations head tumble, the reaping are rich this night.

Nothing is now anything to me and more. In this dance, twisting turning lyric and there a flash of silver orb, deaths own head.
With my sheath I fumble trying from my charger I am humbled. I have changed, On I have moved into another dimension.

Crimson Sails of Junk boats from the land of the setting sun all torn with tempests whipped,
Crimson Rage and Lot the fools now starting to realise through dreams they are possessions tools.

Crimson life and death,
Crimson paths where even the saints and martyrs would not dare to cross.

Holding on tightly now to all that I have, struggling to hold my mind in place,
For believe me or not, if I let go it is surely lost.
To a merciless spirit freedom flows and it would go to a layer of darkness so foul.

There night is a forever and always to fall.
That and this the midnight hour within a darkened tower the souls of the dead collect as one begging to rest, theirs is the aid sought to stop pestilence and corruptions spawn.

And there to hear a hint at last of heavenly grace empowered my spiritual sword will find its place.
Crimson shelled in armor I ask the masters if they can see my angels fly.

Crimson in the shining ones shared blood and the mistress as well; I to all linked.
This does not stop the need when required to see my blade cold and wet with his servants twine!
Crimson do you now alive redeemer recall deaths halls?
Crimson clothed we walked its places rooms and portals!
Mystically sealed portals opened only with a sacrificial tear, and you a master’s son led me safely beyond eternities place.
For as the immoral mortal that I am, not the lords just another one, in us all kings blood from lovers loins.
You then deserted us and left us to die but now my friend I am back and quite alive in fact rather well.

Laughter rings in my ears, I listen to the smaller children’s songs they play carefree in flowery rings.
Like theirs an eternal wisdom is spread like love over angels wings.
“Try Harder”, I call to them for heaven will have no limits when the fires are dowsed.

They dance with fairy free and eldritch music. The Lords nod gnosis and knowing every living organism has a place with my love and hate is slowly extinguished.

Crimson Horsemen to pass you by,
Crimson as the blood lit sky,
Crimson as the freshest red rose,
Crimson as life’s own blood.
Over the plains on horseback gallop,
Over the hills under phantoms shadows,
Down a glade amongst the farmers furrows,
Colliding together pastels on a palette of sliding plates,
Atop the shattered corpses in they byre,
Fire and Flame leap from the farmyard barn after a drunken yarn.

And still you wonder what this Crimson was? It is whatever I wish it to be.
It is life, it is blood and fallen bright Lucifer or the master called God above.
For now the next time you turn to see the rain fall from the sky do not damn a weather vane’s prediction of the Gods or Demons that abound.

It may be one it may be all, however that will not stop the rainfall.

Lords of Power, Lords of Might.
Time has come to begin thy final fight,
And in this cause you are needed to sever ever the darkening haste.

Possessions own Tools Possessors are,
Abominations place is where fools are.

Tuath - Airt - Deas - Iar

Occultists of olden times regarded the spirits of nature as being divided into 4 groups, according to the 4 elements of life. The spirits of earth were called gnomes, those of water were undines the unseen inhabitants of air were called sylphs and the spirits of fire were known as salamanders. These names were traditional however, gnome seems to derive from the Greek "gnoma" meaning "knowledge". So the gnomes are the knowing ones.

Undine is from the Latin "unda", a wave, they are creatures of the waves.

Sylph is from the Greek "silphe", a butterfly, they are depicted world wide as delicate human forms with wings, those of butterflies or dragon flies.

The word salamander is less certain in origin but it may be connected with the Greek word "salambe" " a fire place".

The salamander was visualised as being a like a jewelled lizard or a small dragon having the colours of the flame of fire. All the above elementals may take on the form within your own subconscious racial heritage, that which they assume will be more pleasing to you.

Friendly elementals are believed to assist us in our magical work if asked in the correct manner. The sign of the pentacle is potent to control elementals.

It should have one point upwards when used for this purpose, because then it represents spirit ruling over the kingdom of the elements. Some magical practitioners regard the four elemental elements as being literally kingdoms and they give their names as Paralda the king of the Sylphs, Nixa the king of the undines, Djinn the king of the salamanders and Ghob the king of the gnomes.

The 4 powers of the magus are also related to the elemental kingdoms. The 4 ancient Latin names for the 4 powers were: noscere, audere, velle and tacere. It is believed that to be balanced, all these powers had to be present in the magic user, there is also a correspondence between the 4 elements and the 4 powers. Noscere to know corresponds to air, audere, to dare, to water, velle, to will to fire. Tacere, silence to earth. A 5th power ire to progress or evolving is spirit, the mid-point in circle or mid- point in the pagan cross of the elements.

To know means to gain the knowledge to do ritual magic.

To dare is to practice magic.

To will the manifestation through visualisation and personal power or energy.

To keep silent, to be silent about what you are doing. This last part is especially important as talking about the ritual or spell diffuses the energy flow. Silence also keeps unsympathetic people from directing negative energy or thought forms towards your efforts.

The ancient Celts saw the 4 quarters as being controlled by winds and called them the 4 airts. This is a Gaelic term for the 4 points of the compass, north, south, east, and west within the magic circle. In western tradition air is east, fire is south, water is west and earth is north. This attribution is based on the prevailing winds in Britain. The south wind brings heat and dryness, while the west wind brings warm rainy conditions, the wind from the east is cold, dry and bracing. The north wind is cold and freezing and brings snow. The Gaelic airts had a traditional association of colours attributed to them. East the crimson of dawn. South the white light of high noon. The west the grey of twilight and the north the black of winter.

The Scots Gaelic words for the cardinal points are: north / tuath, east / airt, south / deas, west / iar.

In modern neo pagan and Wicca the aspects are as follows:


Yellow Air Spring Sunrise


Red Fire Summer Noon


Blue Water Autumn Sunset


Green Earth Winter Midnight

Types of elementals, where they dwell and what the do for us.

Fairies and elves: forests, groves, fairy hills and rings, fields and wild places, they are also attracted to rose and herb gardens. These folk have the knowledge and magical secrets of herbs, stones and animals.

Gnomes, trolls and dwarfs: found in caves, mines, under bridges and hollow hills, they know the location of precious gems and metals and how to forge and form them.

Brownies, pixies, and kobolds: found in homes, cottages, stables, barns in fact any place where people live, frequent or gather in groups or where domestic animals live, the are also found in attics, cellars and wine cellars.

They will often protect the home and belongings and the live stock of people they care for and will do small chores at night. These folk are called by various names in different countries, here are some of the many names found in folk tales and mythology.

English: the gentry, the wee folk, faeries.

Irish: sidh.

Cornish: pixies, piskies, puck.

French: fee, fey.

Germanic: elves and trolls.

Arabic: djinn, spirits, genie.

Hawaiian: menehune.

Greek and italian: imps, fauns, sprites and dryads.

Ukrainian: blazhenni.

In egypt the elemental rulers were the children of horus.

South = amset or kestha or mestha. [All the same god.]

East = taumutef a jackal headed god.

West = quebsenuf a hawk headed god.

North = hapi a ape headed god.

To the Cabalists the archangels ruled the quarters, Michael was fire south. Gabriel was water west. Auriel was earth north and Raphael was air east.

To Wiccans who use astrology the south is represented by the lion and Leo, the west by the eagle and Scorpio, the north by the bull and Taurus, and the east by man and Aquarius.

The masonic teaching is that the eagle of fire represents the spiritual side of mans nature, the bull is the astral body and water, the beast with the face of a man stands for the physical body and earth, and the lion is a symbol of will or mental body in the east. Which is said to relate to the key to the mysteries written by Elipas Levi which was translated by A. Crowley.

To know, to dare, to will, to keep silent are the 4 cabalistic words which corresponds to the 4 letters of the tetragram and the 4 hieroglyphic forms of the sphinx and its riddle. To know is the human head, to dare the claws of the lion, to will the mighty flanks of the bull, to keep silent the mystical wings of the eagle and this is the answer to the riddle of the key to the mysteries of the universe so the kabalists say.

In wicca the magical aspects of the elements are:

Earth: money, wealth, prosperity, fertility, health, healing, employment are all related to using the magic of earth and its elementals.

Air: mental powers, study, writing, visions, psychic powers, wisdom and knowledge are related to working with air elementals.

Fire: love, lust, courage, strength, exorcism, protection, banishment of disease is related to the element of fire.

Water: sleep, astral projection, purification, prophetic dreams, healing, love and friendships, fidelity are related to working with water elementals.

A a Magick

Magick has been defined as "The art and science of causing change to
occur in conformity with will *" which could be put more simply as making
desired change happen; or as "energy tending to change"; a definition I use
is "magick is conscious evolution through directing energy". This does not
really explain magick though, so I will try to elaborate on these phrases
without jargon.

An aim of magick is to train the mind by harnessing and making more
consciously accessible such higher faculties as intuition, inspiration and
the creative imagination, and by drawing on the power of the unconscious -
to try and use more than the 10% of our brain's capacity that we do.

Magick assumes belief in, or rather experience of, subtle energies. We can
only see about one seventieth of the light spectrum, yet what we cannot see
still affects us - such as x-rays and ultraviolet light. Similarly, magick
is about focusing more subtle, non-physical energies, and directing them to
create change. To go about this requires experience, and training to improve
the power of the mind, and specifically, the will.

Acts such as meditation, breath control, voice work, body work,
visualization, drama, ritual, and others, are all designed to improve our
body and mind, to better sharpen us and balance us, and to enable us to
perceive and wield more subtle energies.

In the same way, an individual is as strong as their will, and the more
balanced and integrated a person is, the stronger their will (note, this is
probably one of the main reasons why so many magicians have experience of
counselling and/or psychology, recognising the help these processes can
give, both through training and experiencing them. This also acts as a
removal of farcical social stigma often attached to these processes).

Practising magick tends to act as a deconditioning mechanism and can be a
subtle process, the longer you practice, the more you change and the
unnecessary inhibitions, stigmas, guilts and sin complexes that society
builds in are removed. This has the effect of releasing their energy into
the psyche, where it can strengthen the individual.

The more physical side, such as yoga, bodywork, dance and massage, also
removes the tension held in the body as body armour, and releases this and
removes energy blockages which impair full efficiency and may result in

Possibly the major difference between magick and many of the religious paths
to spiritual growth is that magick is more dynamic, and places the emphasis
on you to work for change - there are no gurus in magick, rather there are
fellow students with different perspectives and experiences - we learn from
each other, as in other areas of life.

Magick tends to work a lot with symbols, as these are the language of the
unconscious, and this is an area of tremendous power to tap. Symbols have
many functions, and one of these, released through magick, can be the
ability to confound the ego and the censor mechanisms, and enabling us to
perceive more subtle truths, or experience direct revelations. Although we
may not be able to fully explain how symbols work, we know from experience
that certain symbols seem harmonious with certain types of energy.

For example a magician may tell you that if you want to attract love you
should wear green, and rose perfume, perhaps wear copper, like a bracelet or
necklace, etc. These are all things attributed with Venus, who is associated
with love, and so the principal is one of contagion - sympathetic magick, or
making something happen by working with items linked to it. This is one of
the oldest and most commonly practised forms of magick. Working with the
symbols of a type of energy does seem to attract that energy.

A cautionary word here, magick is often seen as a way to hidden powers, and
entered for the wrong reason, the "I want sex, power and lots of money"
syndrome. Now there is nothing wrong with these things in themselves, but
when you do magick you will discover that you tend to get what you need
rather than necessarily what you want.

When you do magick you generally use techniques to alter your state of
consciousness and raise energy, and then direct that energy to create a
desired result. The channel that energy takes as directed by your altered
state of consciousness is not necessarily the path you might expect in your
normal everyday state. Magick does bring you power, yes, but it is power
over yourself, not other people. It is the power that is important, to grow
and to create positive change.

This does not mean there is anything wrong with using magick to gain more
physical things, there is nothing wrong with doing a ritual or spell to get
a job, whereas trying to make a specific individual go to bed with you would
be wrong. Magick is very much about intent, and if your intent is to get
work, you are not imposing on people, whereas if you were trying to make
somebody do something that they would not naturally do, you are imposing on
their will.

If you did a ritual to attract love without specifying a person, but opening
yourself to the opportunity to meet someone where love may arise, and to
feel more attractive and better about yourself, you are not imposing, you
are trying to create positive change.

Magick is a commitment to yourself, and it requires determination,
perseverance, strength, openness to change and absence of rigidity, a love
of life (including yourself), and a desire to grow and fulfil your
potential. It may be that you already have all these qualities and do this
already without calling it magick - magick is not about labels, and those
who think and talk as if it is unfortunately put some people off. Magick is
learning about the natural flows of energy in the universe, and working in
harmony with them to effect positive change, both in yourself and in your

Some people ask why magick is spelt with a 'k' on the end. This is to
distinguish it from magic, associated in the popular mind with illusionism
and prestidigitation, stage magic. Magick is not about illusion, it is about
creating real change, and the 'k' signifies this. K is the eleventh letter
of the alphabet, i.e. the one beyond ten. Symbolically this is very
powerful, as we work in base ten, and eleven represents the unseen, or
hidden energies - the subtle energies of magick, eleven is considered to be
the number of magick.

Magickal training and experience bring forth the energies of the
unconscious, and so it is no surprise to see that symbols become more
important as you develop, providing not only the language of dream and the
unconscious, but also helping create a more flexible perception grid of the
universe. To grow spiritually, it is vital that you remain flexible and do
not become dogmatic, rather that you are open to experience and willing to
question your ideas and beliefs as a result of those experiences.

Magick can be a painful process. It is not easy to maintain the discipline
and honest self-critical approach all the time. It can also be hard work
dealing with the energy released without being knocked off balance
sometimes. The important thing in these cases is to remain honest and keep
at it. Nobody said magick was easy! It takes a lot of practice and hard work
and pain, but the rewards are spiritual and mental growth, the joy of life
and the beauty of unconditional love. Beyond the limits there are no limits!

Powering a Spell

Some believe that Witches say a few magic words and do a ritual and then a spell is created and performs its function.

There is a metaphorical plane, a plane where all the psychic energy of both the living and the dead exists. We draw from this energy when we are being creative. It can also be psychically tapped to energize one's will and envision the spells casting and release and intent.
The metaphysical plane acts like a battery. Psychic energy is alive and can be given a will of evil or good. Good psychic energy can heal and make good things happen. The evil energy creates a negative field around the person the spell was cast on, Some evil spells can cause someone to lose health etc.

It will effect random chance and make bad or negative things happen, causing luck and other factors to be reduced and depending on the nature of the spell and the psychic skill of the Witch. The spell could take years before it begins to lose its energy and effects.

There are several ways to create a psychic battery. Covens are great for this. A spell cast by a coven is much more powerful then one cast by a single Witch. There are also places in the world where there are rips in the psychic energy layer of the metaphysical plane. These places are ideal for Witches because the psychic energy leaking out of the metaphysical plane is very powerful and very easy to tap. One can also tap a person and use them as a psychic battery to cast spells, but learning to channel and draw psychic energy from the metaphysical plane is the first thing any Witch should learn.

Ozric Tentacles - Fractal Eternal Wheel

Dirty F*cking Hippies Were Right!



The Witches should worship the Gods as is their due, and obey their will. For the worship of the Gods is good for the Witches even as the worship of the Witches is good for the Gods: For the Gods love all their Witches.

As a man loves a woman more by learning more of her wants and desires, so should the Witches love the Gods by the learning (mastering) of them.

It is necessary that the Magic Circle, which is the Temple of the Gods in these times, be cast and purified such that it may be a fitting place for the Gods; and the Witches should be properly prepared and purified to enter into the presence of the Gods.

With love and worship in their hearts the Witches shall raise power from their bodies (and the elements around them), and they shall offer this power to the Gods so that the Gods may help their Witches.

The High Priestess shall rule her coven as the representative of the Goddess, and the High Priest shall support her as the representative of the God. The High Priestess will choose any member of the coven to be her High Priest, if he has sufficient standing in the coven. As the God Himself kissed our Lady's feet, gave Her the five-fold salute, and offered Her His power because of Her youth and beauty, Her sweetness and kindness, Her wisdom and justice, Her humility, gentleness and generosity, and shared His power with Her, so therefore the High Priestess should always be aware that all power comes from Him; it is only lent, to be used wisely and justly.

The greatest virtue of a High Priestess shall be recognition that youth is necessary to the representative of the Goddess. She will, therefore, gracefully retire in favor of a younger covener should the coven so decide in council. The true High Priestess should realize that gracefully surrendering the pride of place is one of the greatest virtues, and that thereby she will return to that pride of place in another life with even greater power and beauty.

In the Old Days, when there were many Witches, we were free and worshipped freely in the greatest temples; but in these times, we must celebrate our sacred mysteries in secret. Therefore, none but the Witches are to see our mysteries; no coven shall know the location of any other coven or who its members are, except the High Priest, the High Priestess and the Messenger; and that there shall be no communication among the covens, except by the Messenger of the Gods or the Summoner. Only if it is safe may the covens meet in some safe place for the Great Festivals; and while there, none shall give their true names or any information about their coven or its members. This law is made for this reason: No-one can tell our enemies what they do not themselves know.

It is ordained that no-one shall tell any person not in the Craft who other Witches are, or give them names or addresses, or in any way tell anything that can betray a Witch to their face. Nor may anyone tell where the covendom or covenstead is, where any meetings are held or any other information about the coven unless directed to do so by the coven in council.

If anyone breaks these laws, even under torture, may the Curse of the God and the Goddess be upon them, so that they may not be reborn upon the Earth (but shall live forever in the Hell of the Christians).

Let each High Priest and High Priestess govern their coven with justice and love, with the help and advice of the other and of the elders of the coven, always heeding the advice of the Messenger of the Gods if he should arrive. They will heed all the suggestions of their coveners and strive to settle any differences among them.

It is recognized that there will always be people who will try to make everybody agree with their ideas: these people are not necessarily bad -- they often have good ideas and these ideas should be discussed in council. But if they will not come to agree with their other coveners or if they say "I will not work with this High Priestess", then the elders will have them leave. It should be suggested that they might join another coven, or if they are of sufficient standing, they may be encouraged to found their own coven. For it is better this way, to avoid strife among the family of Witches.

When using geographic boundaries, whenever anyone of Third Degree lives more than a league from the covenstead (or are about to), any of these may found a new coven; indeed, any Witch living within the covenstead who wishes to form a new coven will inform the elders of this intention and immediately move to a new dwelling beyond the boundaries of known covensteads. Members of any coven may choose to join the new coven when it is formed, but they must totally avoid their old coven if they choose this course. The elders of the old and new covens should meet in peace and love to determine the boundaries of the covens. Any Witch living outside of any two covens may choose to join either coven, but never both. All may meet for the Great Festivals if the elders agree, so long as they meet in peace and love. Let the elders confer as to the use of this law when it is not directly applicable. Always be aware that the splitting of a coven breeds bad feelings (energy vortices?); this law was made chiefly for this reason. And may happier times come!

If you would keep a Book (whether it is called a Black Book, Book of Shadows, Book of Light, or whatever), write it in your own hand. Let your brothers and sisters in the Craft copy as they will from your book in their hand, but never let your Book out of your hands and never keep the writing of another. Every Witch should keep and guard their own writings, that none may be discovered through their Book being found in another's possession.

Destroy your Book whenever danger threatens, and commit as many as possible of these Laws to memory. Destroy the writings of a deceased Witch if they did not have time to do so themselves. If any of their writings are found, it is clear proof against both the writer and the holder, for our enemies firmly believe that "one may not be a Witch alone": their family and all who are known to be friends may be suspected as Witches. Be responsible with your writings and you will protect all who love you.

If your Book is found on you, it is clear proof against you along unless you tell our enemies what you know. You may be taken and tortured, but keep all thoughts of the Craft from your mind. If the torture is too much to bear, tell them, "I cannot bear this torture. I will confess. What do you want me to say?" If they try to make you talk about the Craft, do not; but if they try to make you speak of absurd things, such as flying through the air, consorting with the Christian devil, sacrificing children or eating men's flesh, say, "I held an evil dream; I was beside myself; I was crazed," or words to that effect, to obtain relief from the torture. Not all magistrates are bad -- if there is any semblance of an excuse, they may show mercy. If you have confessed to anything, deny it afterwards: say that you babbled under torture, or that you don't remember what you said. If you are condemned, do not be afraid, for the Craft is powerful and your escape will be aided if you stand fast. If you go steadfast to the flames, be certain that drugs will reach you and you will feel nothing of the pain. You will only go to death and what lies beyond -- the ecstasy of the God and the Goddess. If you betray anything, however, there is no hope for you in this life or that which is to come.

To avoid being discovered, choose your working tools to be ordinary items which you would have around the house. Make your Pentacles out of wax so that you can break and melt them at once. Do not keep a sword unless its presence would alarm no-one. Have no signs or names visible on anything. Write the signs in ink or water immediately before consecrating the tool and wash them off immediately after. Do not engrave anything, for this will only help you be discovered. Keep your athame and kerfan (working knife) among your kitchen knives, and let the colors of the hilts determine the one from the other and from the other knives. Always remember that we are the Hidden Children of the Goddess. Never do anything to disgrace the Craft or Her -- never boast, never threaten, and never say that you wish ill of anyone.

It is not forbidden to say, "There is Witchcraft in the land", for the Christians say so themselves and have made it heresy not to believe so; but always say, "I know nothing of it here, though it may be elsewhere." If any person speaks about the Craft outside of the Circle, say, "Don't speak of such things -- it frightens me. It is bad luck to talk about such things." Say this for this reason: the Christians have their spies everywhere. These spies have been known to talk as if they were drawn to the Craft and as if they would want to come to our meetings, and they say such things as, "My fathers and forefathers worshipped the Old Ones, and my mother; I would like to worship in this way myself." To all of these, tell them that you do not know what they are talking about, and that you wish they would stop. But to others, say, "It's silly to talk about Witches flying around in the air; they would have to be lighter than feathers or thistle-down. Besides, everyone knows that Witches are all bleary-eyed old hags; what fun could they possibly have at their meetings, and why should I want to participate? And besides, you know we were taught in school that there are no such things as Witches." Always make fun of the subject, that we may worship in peace when the persecution ends: let us all work for that happy time. May the blessing of the God and the Goddess be upon all who keep this law.

If any in the Craft holds any property, let all Witches guard it and keep it clear and good for the use of the Craft. It is the further responsibility of all Witches to guard Craft funds wisely.

If any Witch offers a well-made item, it is proper to pay them for it according to the value of the work; this is not taking money for the Craft, but payment for honest work -- even the Christians believe that "the labourer is worth his hire". Still, if any Witch works willingly for the good of the Craft and will not accept payment, this shall be to their greater honor.

It is known that a coven may be bound together by sexual ties, and that this is often not desirable. When it is found that this is not desirable, the coven should be made up of loving couples, and there may also be single coveners. In such cases, it is required that the search for new love be undertaken outside the coven except when two single coveners find love with each other; otherwise, it will often cause division in the coven. For while all acts of love and pleasure are indeed the rituals of our beloved Goddess, She is not inclined to favor acts which divide Her covens and scatter Her Witches unnecessarily.

If there should arise quarrels or disputes among the Witches, the High Priestess or High Priest shall immediately convene the elders and inquire into the problem. The elders shall hear each side separately, and then both together. Their decision should be just, not siding with one side until the matter is determined, recognizing that there are people who cannot work under others, and others who cannot make wise decisions. To those who must always be in charge, the possible solutions for them are to void the coven altogether, find another coven for them, or for them to found a new coven (taking with them all who will go). To those who cannot rule wisely, the solution is that those who cannot bear the rule will leave the coven. No one can truly worship the Gods when personal conflicts among the coveners are not resolved; all who cause strife in the coven must be told, "Go away from us, for the Craft must ever survive."

In the Old Days, we could use the Art against anyone who treated the Witches badly; but in these times, we must not do so. Our enemies have invented a burning pit of everlasting fire into which their God throws everyone who does not worship Him, except for those few who buy their penance from His priests (for their God always seems to be in need of money). Even as our Gods need our aid to make fertility for people and crops, so it is that the God of the Christians is always needing men to find and destroy us. Their priests tell them that any man who is helped by us will be damned to their Hell forever, to the point that men are mad with the terror of it. But the priests also make them believe that they may escape this Hell if they give up Witches to be tortured, so that these men are always thinking, "If I catch only one Witch, I will escape the fiery pit." For this reason we have our hiding places, and when no Witches are found, the searchers will say, "There aren't any Witches, or at least not in this area." But as soon as one of our oppressors dies or even catches a cold, the cry will go up that it is "Witches' work", and the hunt will be on again. And while they may kill ten Christians for every Witch, they will not care, for they are countless millions while we are few indeed.

THEREFORE, IT IS ORDAINED that none shall use the Art in any way to harm anyone or even wish them ill. However much they may injure us, HARM NONE, and may the Christians forget that we exist.

These laws are ordained to help us in our difficulties. No person, no matter how large the injury or injustice they incur, may use the Art in any way to do evil or harm anyone. But they may use the Art, after great consultation with the elders and fellow coveners, to keep the Christians and their tools from harming anyone -- but only to constrain them. To this end, some day men will say "That man says he is a mighty persecutor of Witches, but all we ever see him torture are old women -- we cannot see that they have hurt anyone, and if they are all such powerful Witches, why has he not been harmed?" They will see him as the evil person he is, regardless of his professed beliefs. We know that too many people have died because someone had a grudge against them, or were persecuted because another wanted their wealth or because they were too poor to bribe the witch-hunters. And many have died only for being old women -- so many that most men now seem to believe that only old women are Witches. This is to our advantage, for it turns many suspicious eyes away from us; but we mourn deeply for the old women. Still, in England and Scotland, it has been hundreds of years since a Witch "died the death"; be vigilant, for the misuse of our power might begin the persecutions again. Never break this law, no matter how much you are tempted. Never consent to the breaking of this law: even a High Priestess who merely consents to the breaking of this law must be deposed immediately, for it is the blood of all the Witches that she endangers. DO ONLY GOOD, and then only when it is safe to do anything at all.

Never accept money for the use of the Art, for money always smudges the receiver. Christians take money for the use of their arts, and they sell pot-metal charms, pardons and potions to men so that they may escape from their sins. Do not act like these; as long as you refuse to take money, you will be free from the temptation to use the Art for evil causes. All may use the Art for their own advantage or for the advantage of the Craft, but you must always be certain that no-one will be harmed by its use. Let the coven debate the use of the Art at length, and only when all are satisfied that none will be harmed by its use will the use be allowed. Remember that if you cannot achieve your means in one fashion, your aim may still be reached through another -- always harming none.

If anyone in the Craft needs a house or land and there is no one willing to sell to them, you may use the Art to incline an owner's mind to be willing to sell, provided that the spell does not harm the owner or the property and that the full value is paid without haggling. Never bargain or cheapen anything while living by the Art.

The most important of laws: Do nothing that will endanger anyone in the Craft or which will bring them into conflict with the law of the land or any of our persecutors. In this regard, it is NEVER permissible, in any dispute involving the Craft, to invoke any laws other than those of the Craft, nor may any tribunals be held other than one consisting of the High Priestess, the High Priest, and the elders.

The coven is to keep two books on herbalism. One of these will list the names and uses of all herbs which are cures for ills or are otherwise good for humans, and all may have access to this book to learn these things. But keep a separate book with the names of all poisonous herbs and those used in dark spells, letting only the elders and other trusted Witches know of these secrets or even of this book's existence.

Remember that the Art is the secret of the Gods and may only be used in earnest -- never for show, or pride, or personal glory. The Christians may taunt you saying, "You have no power: Perform some magic for us, and then we may believe." Do not listen to them, for the Art is holy and is to be used only in need.

It has always been the way of men and women that they should seek after love, and while no one should be reproved for this, it may be to the disadvantage of the Craft sometimes. It has happened too many times that a High Priestess has found a new love and run off with him, giving no word to the coven of this. A High Priestess may resign in full coven at any time, and this resignation is valid; but if she has not resigned, the coven shall wait for her to return for a year and a day (for she may return sooner, having left for love). If she has a deputy, that deputy is to act as Priestess for as long as the High Priestess is away. If she returns within this time, all will be as if she had never left; but if she does not return within this time, a new High Priestess shall be elected in full coven. Unless there is a good reason to the contrary, the deputy, having done the work, should reap the reward and be chosen as the new High Priestess. But if another is chosen, the deputy shall be the maiden and deputy of the new High Priestess.

The High Priest serves at the pleasure of the High Priestess. If the High Priestess is gone for more than a year and a day, he shall continue in his office while the deputy serves in her place. However, once a new High Priestess has been chosen, the new High Priestess will appoint her own High Priest (and it may be the current High Priest or not). Neither the prior High Priest nor his friends may be angry if a new High Priest is chosen, for pride must always give way to harmony in the coven.

The Art is sacred: it is the Art of the working of energies, and it must always be taught inside of the Magic Circle. It has been found that teaching the Art frequently leads to a sexual attraction between the teacher and student -- and that this often improves the result. If for any reason this is not desirable, it should be avoided at the beginning by both persons firmly - and verbally - resolving that their relations will be limited to that of brother and sister, or parent and child. It is for the reason that shared love often increases the result of working magic that teaching should always be done from man-to-woman and from woman-to-man. When a coven is made up of members of all one sex, the masculine-to-feminine energy exchange should be adhered to whenever possible. Teaching people about the Craft, however, may be done whenever and wherever it is safe, so long as the teacher is knowledgeable, the student is willing, and the information taught is available publicly or is not a secret of the Art. No-one may charge for teaching, unless it is to cover such expenses as the cost of the room, books or other printed materials, refreshments, and so forth.

Order and discipline must be kept within the coven: the High Priestess or the High Priest should and may punish all faults. To this end, all in the Craft should receive their correction willingly. With the culprit kneeling, all in the Circle should be told of the offense, and the sentence will be pronounced. Punishment might include the scourge or the recasting of the Circle, followed by something silly such as several kisses. The culprit must acknowledge the justice of the punishment by kissing the scourge upon receiving sentence, and afterward by thanking everyone for their loving correction

The Great Invocation A World Prayer by Alice A Bailey & Djwhal Khul

The Great Invocation
A World Prayer by Alice A Bailey & Djwhal Khul

What is the Great Invocation?
The Great Invocation is a World Prayer, an invocation for light and love, and is used globally as act of service to humanity to aid the Plan of God to find full expression on Earth.

Two versions are presented here - the original version released in 1945 by Alice Bailey and The Tibetan, Djwhal Khul, and the newer adapted version to accommodate the world's changing consciousness.

Original 1945 Version
by Alice A Bailey & Djwhal Khul...

The Great Invocation

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men -
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power
restore the Plan on Earth.

Adapted 2000 Version
by the Lucis Trust...

The Great Invocation

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into human minds.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts.
May the Coming One return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills -
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the human race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power
restore the Plan on Earth.

Note on the adapted version:

The 'offending' words which were modified are:
- "man". (This word is actually Sanskrit for 'one who thinks')
- "Christ" (This word actually refers to divine consciousness)
The adapted version replaced "man" and "Christ" with to a general misunderstanding of the true meaning of these words by many, which caused 'objections'. The words were modified so that they preserved their original meaning and intent, whilst making it more 'palatable' for some.

8. Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through all space activities throughout the world until every nation unites in cooperative service, so that God's Will may be manifest with our sisters and brothers throughout the Universe.

9. Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through the physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies of Humanity until all disease and human miscreation, its cause and core, is dissolved and transmuted into purity, vibrant health, and physical perfection.

10. Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through the food and water industries and through all of the food and water used for human consumption until every particle of food and every molecule of water is filled with Light. Empower this Elemental substance to raise the vibratory action of Humanity's physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies until physical perfection becomes a sustained manifest reality for every Human Being.

11.

The Gods and Goddesses of the Celtic Lands

The Gods and Goddesses of the Celtic Lands

The Celts were very religious and believed in reincarnation and the migration of the soul to the after life after death. They did not believe in punishment after death. The Celtic Pantheon held many female deities of primary importance ranging from war goddesses to mother goddesses to ruling goddesses. They also believed in 3 aspects of the God/dess, three aspects of a single god. The teachings of the Druids could be summed up quite easily: worship the gods, be strong, courageous and do no evil. Human sacrifices by the blade, burning, or drowning were done because it was believed that a life must be given for a life, as in murder, accidental killing, extreme illness, or to be spared from the horrors of battle. Generally, those who were killed were prisoners of war or criminals. This practice does not, however, seem to have been used much at all in Ireland and Britain.
Female were equal to males and held just as much power. The Priestesses were highly revered. Priestesses sang the dying to sleep, did charms, enchantments, prophecies, healing, etc. They knew the power of words, stones and herbs. One of the central features of their Groves was a cauldron, bowl or pool. Curses were cast for any mistreatment of women. Red-hair females were sacred to the war Goddesses, as their hair was the color of blood.

The Lady Of the Lake
Location: Wales, Britain
Description: To some she is a faery woman, to others she is a potent deity of life, death and regeneration. She was the possessor of the sword Excalibur (called Caliburn in Brittany), the magickal blade given to King Arthur. A Sovereign Goddess, it is this act of taking the offered sword which grants Arthur the right to rule, and it is she who claims the blade again, when his role as sacrificial king must be fulfilled. The Bretons claim she was a Breton addition to the Arthurian legends and that she never appeared in the original Welsh versions of the myths. Contradictory to the “sword in the churchyard stone” stories, the Breton version tells us that Merlin and Arthur rowed out to the center of the Dosmary Lake in Cornwall and that it was there that Excalibur was presented to him, the sword embedded in a floating stone. When he pulled it out, it was an act of reversal of the Great Rite, separating the female and male concepts of creation which were not to be united again until Arthur’s death. The Lady of the Lake is also said to have been the foster mother of Sir Lancelot, one of Arthurs knights, also a Breton addition to the tale. She is pictured as sitting on a throne of reeds in the center of the lake’s depths. Among her MANY magickal credits is that of a healer. She is associated with the crane, water lilies and marble.
