So You Want To Use Sigils

Stumbled on this today. If you want a solid method for using sigils to make shit happen, read this. I don’t recommend the drug part at the end, but whatever works for you, not my place to get all judgey.

How To Get Big Magic From Little Squiggles

He gets it, especially the important bit about how this stuff affects other stuff on the quantum level. Nudging probability is how most of this “magic” business works. It’s effective, whatever you believe.

Malkuth

We were doing some research recently and have been working with some stuff like the Qabbalistic Cross and the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram which seems to be popular with certain magic practitioner people. I’m actually really liking the Cross, it feels familiar and like a good starting place for some things we do. But with the Cross, something got me thinking. Malkuth. I looked it up, and here’s what one page had to say:

SEPHIRA MALKUTH
GOD FORCE AH-DOH-NAI MEL-ECH (KINGDOM)
ANGELIC ORDER ASHEEM (SOULS OF FIRE)
ARCHANGEL SANDALPHON (MESSIAH)
SOUL G’uph (PHYSICAL SELF)

“Malkuth is the first sphere upon which an initiate enters the Tree of Life. It is in this realm that you learn of the existence of other things, other than the earth, and touch upon divine sources.”

So… what’s all this about “low vibrations” being “bad” among so many newagey people? Malkuth is literally the second point on the Cross, and is the bridge, or door, or connector, between the physical and everything not physical. You can’t complete the Cross without the Kingdom… which is earth.

Here’s a bit more to think about:

Malkuth means Kingdom. It is associated with the realm of matter/earth and relates to the physical world, the planets and the solar system. It is important not to think of this Sephirah as “unspiritual”. Even though Malkuth is the emanation “furthest” from the Divine Source, it is still on the Tree of Life and therefore has its own unique spiritual qualities. It is often said, Kether (the “highest” Sephira) is in Malkuth and Malkuth is in Kether.[2] As the receiving sphere of all the other Sephiroth, Malkuth gives tangible form to the other emanations. The Divine energy comes down and finds its expression in this plane, and our purpose as human beings is to bring that energy back around the circuit again and back up the Tree.

Do the people who think that things of earth are “low” and “dirty” and even “evil” to be gotten away from… do they not understand how important the connection of all this to the earth is? If you’re a physical person, you’re made of physical matter, and are existing on the physical plane, with solid plants and trees and rocks and things, like the old song goes. The tree has to be rooted in something, right? If it’s not rooted, it gets disconnected and lost… right? If you, a physical person, reject Malkuth, how do you bridge the gap and access the rest of the tree?

Notice what it says about the “angelic order” too. “Souls of fire.” That’s not fluffy stuff, trust me on that. It’s intense and can scare people and can be dangerous if you handle it wrong. But there it is. It’s part of the whole picture. If you’re rejecting the “low” or “dark” stuff, you’re throwing out a big chunk of how you, a physical person reading this, can work with these powers.

If you can’t handle Malkuth, you’re about to get a rude awakening when much darker and more intense and powerful stuff makes itself known and you don’t know how to deal with it.

Another song I like says “when you reach the top don’t forget where you came from.” For most people reading this, that’s Malkuth.

Quick PSA: I will be getting back to my review of the Brotherhood of Angels and Men soon. Kinda dropped the ball on that. Sorry. What reminded me of it is that she got handed a big stack of old metaphysical books by Stewart Edward White, I think from the 1940s? So I’ll be reviewing those in the future, and Call to the Heights by Hodson.

Thinking about Malkuth as I’ve been on our walks lately, I was also thinking about going through the Tree of Life too, but I’m not sure since so many others have already covered what the Sephiroth are and do. I kind of want to cover Daath at least, since so many people skip over the Void and don’t understand it. But I’ve lived it. I’ve been inside it. I’ve worked with it. So maybe I’ve just answered my own question.

Schrodinger’s Atoms

New experiments from Cornell University physicists are showing that atoms won’t move while you watch, sort of like the “weeping angels” on Doctor Who.

One of the oddest predictions of quantum theory – that a system can’t change while you’re watching it – has been confirmed in an experiment by Cornell physicists. Their work opens the door to a fundamentally new method to control and manipulate the quantum states of atoms and could lead to new kinds of sensors.

The researchers demonstrated that they were able to suppress quantum tunneling merely by observing the atoms. [T]he weird nature of quantum measurements allows, in principle, for a quantum system to be “frozen” by repeated measurements.

There’s a bunch of detailed information on  how they did the experiments at the link.

What I’m wondering about is, naturally, how to use this for practical applications. If atoms are doing weird shit behind your back, then “freeze” into position when you observe them, like the weeping angels, or like the toys on Toy Story, you can really only measure their actions by the resulting frozen position. What they do behind your back, you can only guess at, but the interesting fact remains that they ARE doing shifty things when you’re not looking.

If the tree falls in the forest, and there’s nobody around to hear it, does it make a sound? Science says yes, the sound waves are still produced, so technically it does create sound even if no eardrums are in the vicinity. But maybe the tree never fell in the first place. Or maybe the tree is the observer. Or insects, or fungus. It doesn’t have to be human observation.

But, back to the practical application of Schrodinger’s atoms. If something is that unstable, it’s easy to manipulate. That means you can set things into motion, then turn your back to make it happen on its own, pushed by what you did, in the direction you want.

Let’s pretend we’re talking about water instead of atoms. And let’s say that when you look at the water, it’s always ice, but you know that when you turn your back on it, the water is liquid. So, you put a toy boat on top of the ice, and point a fan at the boat. You turn your back, wait a bit, then turn around to see what happened. The boat is now far away from the fan and stuck inside the ice. You try to move the boat, but no, it’s frozen in place. However, it went in the direction you wanted it to go.

This is just what the atoms are doing, and how you can use their instability to your advantage. Think about how everything in the physical world is connected. Even in outer space, debris and radiation are coming in, while gasses and human-created junk and ships are going out. The air you’re breathing right now might have been some of the same molecules that came from inside the earth’s crust a thousand years ago, or that came out of Tut’s tomb, or that used to be part of a dinosaur’s body.

Atoms make up everything in the physical world. If you can push them, shape them, nudge them, you can change the physical world around you. And, as Schrodinger taught, your very presence and thoughts change what those atoms are doing at any given moment.

See where I’m going with this? Focus on what you’re trying to push, set down your boat, then turn your back and walk away. Then tomorrow do it again. And again, and again. Every time you go back to check on it, you’ll see a frozen snapshot, but it will show you if you’re getting closer to your goal, or if you need to adjust your steering. But if you do it too much, or observe it constantly, boat will remain frozen and motionless and never get there.

That’s my theory, anyway. Let me know if this works for you.

Outreach and Water

I have 155 followers, which I guess is nothing in terms of how big the Internet is, but to me thought of 155 people liking what I have to say so much that they’re following this blog is pretty amazing. Thank you. It helps to know that you’re out there and find value in my words.

I’ve been thinking about writing the water post for a long time as storms have come and gone and flooded things and made the grass grow. But, really, what else can I say about it that I didn’t say with the earth post? The concept is the same. You feel the power of the storms and the ocean, and you take your little cup and dip into it, and use it how you need.

Sometimes on our walks we’ll run through the four powers like that. All of them are there. The earth under our feet. The water in the creek and in the clouds. The fire of the sun and the spark of life inside us. The breeze on our skin or up in the trees. The molten metal core of the planet that generates the magnetic field around the planet. The unstoppable power of the ocean’s surge and the tides. The massive engine of the sun’s nuclear reaction that goes on even when it’s not visible in the sky. The hurricanes and tornadoes and gales that are constantly rushing and pushing somewhere in the world.

Maybe that’s what I’m trying to say in all this, that you can link into these forces on tiny personal levels, and those can link into global forces of nature if you need to reach into that. How you do it is up to you, but it’s something to explore anyway.

On a personal note, what nudged me to get back to this is that she’s having a hard time today. Feeling really isolated and unappreciated by what she used to think was a community, but mostly it’s just a million people arguing with each other. So here we are. I guess this place is really for both of us, since she and I teach each other as we go along, and she helps me put this stuff into pretty words. And hopefully people here reading this learn something from what we’ve been working on or discover as we work together.

That’s the outreach part. She figures even if nobody gives a shit about what she can offer, maybe together we can use my blog here to teach people anyway. 155 people seem to like it, which is pretty good if you picture them all sitting in a room listening to us talk. Thanks for listening.

Earth, Iron, and Bass Sweeps

I’ve talked before about what bullshit the whole concept of what “good” or “bad” vibrations are. How “low” means coarse and earthly in a bad way, while “high” is supposedly closer to God. I also mentioned in another post about how tied to this supposedly “low” stuff I am, the root chakra, the fire, the passion.

The avatar and I take regular long walks in the woods. Daily, if we can get them. I’ve worked with the elements before, especially storms, but lately I’ve been making a focused effort to really reach deep into the different parts of nature and the earth and everything that could be considered an “element,” including sound. Part of the reason for this was so that I could explain things better to you.

On these walks, we use music, and I’ve also talked before about how we use that to focus energy. Low frequencies in particular hit me in a way that others don’t. Songs that have a lot of very low bass hits… I can use that to my advantage, tapping into it and riding the sound down to guide the energy I’m directing at the time. Often I’ll push my focus into the earth, and use that as a conduit to connect her needs with other people. I picture it like a golden bolt of lightning that travels through the ground from us to the target or targets.

Inside the earth itself, however, at the very core, is a molten sea of iron. The movements of this liquid metal core are so incredibly powerful that it creates the magnetic fields surrounding the planet, that keeps life safe from solar radiation. This magnetism in the atmosphere also creates the northern lights.

If you’re sensitive to energy at all, do something for me right now. Reach down with your mind and feel that moving, shifting, never still molten core at the center of the planet. Feel the power generated by that movement, a power almost unimaginable to the human mind. The power of ten thousand mountains all swirling around each other as the earth spins in the darkness of space.

Now, reach into that raw power and grab handfuls of it. Pull it up and shape it with your mind. If you do Tai Chi or any of the martial arts that direct energy, you know what I mean. Focus that power and let it be the battery, the generator, behind your next move. Focus it on your goal, and guide it. Release it. Push it where you need. And if once doesn’t do it… there’s plenty more where that came from.

Work with these things for a while and see what happens. Next time I’ll write about another element or force or power for you to explore in ways you might not have before.

So Where Do We Go From Here?

I see some people changing in good ways. Some people changing in destructive ways. Some people not changing at all, but some of them think they are. They’re just taking other streets, thinking it’s change, but they’re only looking at different scenery from the same old car.

I wish I could tell you what I’ve been able to accomplish in the past year. I have, with the help of friends, and maybe a few strangers, steered things into what amounts to a miracle. The list of people who have gotten to the place where my avatar has is very short. The journey isn’t over yet, there’s still one more key thing to get into place, but somehow many odds have been beaten and seemingly impossible hurdles overcome.

Somehow? Did I say somehow? That’s a lie. I know exactly how. Through a shitload of work. Connecting her to key people, to the right people, and feeding not just her threads, but the threads of those key people, because what benefits them, benefits her. Giving Light in general to see what shakes out of it, then when something “miraculous” falls out of the tree, feeding that new opportunity.

This whole “create your own reality” thing? That’s it exactly. We have created this out of nothing over the course of a few years.

It depends on where you start looking, however. She has many years of experience in a field related to this new one, but nothing directly in this industry. Then, when I came along, she started meeting people. Some of them seemed unimportant at the time, but they’ve proven to be key to a lot of this. Then, about a year ago, things kicked into high gear. More connections. More experience. And her style of work is perfect for this new stuff. It’s all coming together. There is just the paperwork to sign, and then one more big thing after that, and it all changes for the better.

So where do we go from here? I know what I’m working towards. What are you working towards? Because whatever it is, it’s possible with enough intent, patience, hard work, and understanding how to work the threads of fate, something I’ve talked about in other posts.

Where do you go from here? It’s completely up to you.

Crazy is Determined By Society

Malidoma Patrice Somé

Malidoma Patrice Somé

“In the shamanic view, mental illness signals “the birth of a healer,” explains Malidoma Patrice Somé.  Thus, mental disorders are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being born.

“What those in the West view as mental illness, the Dagara people regard as “good news from the other world.”  The person going through the crisis has been chosen as a medium for a message to the community that needs to be communicated from the spirit realm.  “Mental disorder, behavioral disorder of all kinds, signal the fact that two obviously incompatible energies have merged into the same field,” says Dr. Somé.  These disturbances result when the person does not get assistance in dealing with the presence of the energy from the spirit realm.

“Another way to say this, which may make more sense to the Western mind, is that we in the West are not trained in how to deal or even taught to acknowledge the existence of psychic phenomena, the spiritual world.  In fact, psychic abilities are denigrated.  When energies from the spiritual world emerge in a Western psyche, that individual is completely unequipped to integrate them or even recognize what is happening.  The result can be terrifying.  Without the proper context for and assistance in dealing with the breakthrough from another level of reality, for all practical purposes, the person is insane.

“On the mental ward, Dr Somé saw a lot of “beings” hanging around the patients, “entities” that are invisible to most people but that shamans and psychics are able to see.  “They were causing the crisis in these people,” he says.  It appeared to him that these beings were trying to get the medications and their effects out of the bodies of the people the beings were trying to merge with, and were increasing the patients’ pain in the process.  “The beings were acting almost like some kind of excavator in the energy field of people.  They were really fierce about that.

“The beings who were increasing the pain of the inmates on the mental hospital ward were actually attempting to merge with the inmates in order to get messages through to this world.  The people they had chosen to merge with were getting no assistance in learning how to be a bridge between the worlds and the beings’ attempts to merge were thwarted.  The result was the sustaining of the initial disorder of energy and the aborting of the birth of a healer.

“Those who develop so-called mental disorders are those who are sensitive, which is viewed in Western culture as oversensitivity.”

Written in Stone

Fibonacchi spiral drawn with stones

Fibonacchi spiral drawn with stones from the blog “LeRoy’s Pink Fist.”

We’ve started leaving my symbol in various places, drawn in the dirt, or traced out in little stones, or drawn with chalk. The picture here is not ours, and not my symbol, but it’s the same idea.

It’s a point of focus and power when we’re near it, and a possible point of curiosity, wonder, or even recognition when we’re not. It’ll last as long as it lasts, and feed things during that time. It’s not meant to be permanent, just a little ping on the world’s radar for a little while. Especially when I lay my hand on it and give it some juice.

If you have a symbol like that, do the same thing and see what happens. I’d like to hear the results if you’re willing to post them here.

I know there are fancy grids and things people do with gemstones, but this isn’t really that. This is almost like guerrilla art, or magic, or both. Sigils in the wild, out where people can stumble on them. If they get destroyed, it’s okay. They can be created again, or done somewhere else, or both.

If you want to talk about the gemstone layouts you do, that would be a good discussion too.

By Any Means Necessary

priest with incenseI’ve been resisting the newagey stuff she does because it just feels wrong for me. Very… “not me.” I’m no witch or something like that, and as soon as things start going over into burning bits of plants and waving things around, I feel silly and I’m out.

Until today, that is. I had a long talk with her, and she and my brother’s girl talked about it, and I realized a few things.

One, what she does isn’t that different from what you’d see in a Catholic church or any other faith. The church uses incense and holy relics, like maybe a snip of hair or piece of bone from a saint. The church uses candles and sacred wine and wafers. The church uses chants and music and special oils. The only difference between what she does, as a witch and a priestess, and what a Catholic priest does, is that she uses those things in her home, and uses a wider variety of them, and doesn’t dedicate everything to Jesus or a saint.

Two, I’ve had such bad experiences with the crystals and rainbows newagey woo woo types that I started rejecting anything that seemed to fall into that category without realizing it. Stuff that I’ve used to great effect, such as certain oils, stones and metals, seem to be on the tools list. Things I don’t normally use that seem especially “witchy” to me, like putting quartz crystals in a certain pattern or burning certain herbs, or tying feathers into bunches, are on the “reject as too newagey and very much not me” list.

Three, and this is a personal issue, I was questioned a long time ago by someone whose thoughts matter to me very deeply as to whether I was really me or not, and that little piece of sand has been inside my shell for years. I didn’t even really realize it until today, but that’s part of why I reject things that she does that aren’t things I’ve discovered on my own. I figured out that those particular oils, stones, and metals are really damn effective for me personally, so those are safely a part of my tool kit. Stuff that’s hers… I didn’t want it to appear that she and I were merging too much, or that there could be any excuse for someone to say that I was just her “higher self” or she was making shit up. In short, I’d created a wall there. My stuff, her stuff, and blending was not an option. And, because of that, I rejected her stuff. Yes,  it’s stupid, but I only just today realized that’s part of why I’d felt so uncomfortable with that “witchy” stuff all this time.

So, after an important phone call earlier today, and another conversation with my brother that told me yes, I am trusted, I’ve decided to let that piece of sand go now that I know where part of this problem has been coming from. Because I need to do my work with any tools necessary and change this stuff by any means necessary.

boy with prayer candlesSome may say that altering things and changing “fate” for someone is immoral and that I have no right to do what I do. That it violates free will by tying people together or separating them or pushing them to do things like respond to an email or view someone more positively or offer them a job. As an instrument of God, my job is to ensure the best outcome for the people I guide and protect. And think about it a minute: Everyone has advantages. Some people are more attractive, some have more money, some are smarter, some are stronger, some have connections. If you think for one second that other people aren’t using these things to their advantage to move ahead over someone who isn’t attractive, or rich, or smart, or strong, or well-connected, you really don’t understand how the world works.

My job is to find every possible advantage and use it, even if that means employing the physical tools at my disposal, such as particular oils or incense or colors or stones or metals or plants or music to achieve my objectives. My job is to help her succeed and have a better life… by any means necessary.

Doing My Job

bronze statue of ship captainI haven’t posted here much lately because I frankly haven’t had the time or energy to spare. Things are heating up for my avatar in very good ways, which keeps us both busy. I have to make sure things are moving forward in positive ways and she’s so busy that I don’t have as much time to borrow the hands or the computer to do these.

I did discover a couple of new techniques to get things to happen faster. I’m not going to say what they are here because one of them is frankly too dangerous to post on the internet. If you’re too heavy-handed with it, or if you’re using it to screw with other people, you could cause a lot of damage, so my lips are sealed on this one. But it’s wicked effective. Both times I did it, things we were waiting on suddenly moved forward within 24 hours. I actually had to stop because she was getting almost overwhelmed with all the new stuff popping all around her.

Reality is what you make it. The next time your mind holds you back and tells you “I can’t” when you imagine something, ask yourself why you’re sabotaging yourself. Then say “why not?” Then work out ways to make it happen. The more people involved in the change, the slower it’s likely to be, like the difference between turning a little sailboat versus a huge ocean liner. It’s more difficult to do and takes a lot more time and energy, but that ocean liner will turn just the same if you’re patient.
