The Blood is the life : Using the vital fluids in the Evocation of Spirits

 

55cb2-sigils_0004

“And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.”- Book of Ezekiel, Chapter 16, Verse 6.

 

The Bathroom is dirty,lights flicker, a man in a leather jacket calmly walks in whistling “Easy” by The Commodores. He is wearing a Top Hat,a stained white buttoned down shirt rolled up at the sleeves,Red vest,black jeans,black boots. Turns and locks the door,walks to the sink and mirror like he owns the place,takes his Hat off with a flourish and puts it on the sink,stops whistling.Smiles at his reflection.He reaches in to his vest and pulls out 4 objects,lines them on the sink,a Straight razor, a zippo, a pack of camels and a small lead coin with something etched upon it.Takes a cigarette out, light’s it up, puts it on the rim of his Hat.In a soft respectful voice he chants-

 

“I lite this cigarette in the name of Belzebuth, in your honor do I send up this smoke in an offering to thee.”

 

He picks up the straight razor,then cuts his right arm with it,winces at the pain,then with his left hand draws the sigil with his blood on the mirror In a Strong,Commanding voice he calls out-

 

“In the Name of Belzebuth, King of the powers of Air,Prince of Demons,I inscribe your Signature in my own blood,to call upon you so that you may honor the pact we have Previously made.You who May send or avert plague or sickness, whose vessel is the fly, I adjure you……”

 

No, I’ve not lost my marbles, but thanks for asking. This is an example of a ritual that I’ve performed (I wrote this as the opening scene for a script), and it’s quite typical of off the cuff evocation that I prefer with spirits that I have a relationship with. I’m talking to you straight about using Cum, Blood, Shit and Piss in ritual magic. When you have no Incense, or powders, or magic wands, this form of Spirit working is the last resort.

 

But after a number of years, it becomes the quickest way to call something to you, but there is danger in speed. Now note, By this I am not talking about animal sacrifice but that does have a time and place. In fact, it is an all-purpose Taoist ritual tool. Useful for mixing chicken blood with ink to write talismans, to throw the blood at ghosts, to offer en toto to ghouls or demons who may be appeased by the chicken instead of attacking humans, and more. Whenever it looks like a living sacrifice is necessary, out comes a chicken. Which is a shame, because I could think of a few of the modern occultists that probably could’ve used a ritual murder. But I digress….

 

 

Most types of Demonolatry have all incorporated some form of blood letting or blood ritual.   the sacrifice, which is the act of making something sacred, of a few drops of your own blood as offering to deity is the most personal offering you can give. Not all Spirits demand or insist upon blood sacrifice, but most Taoist ones do, and many from the west expect it out of hand. As a matter of fact some prefer sexual fluids instead, and I will cover this later on.

 

Now please, don’t go cutting your Arm and bleeding out in some back Alley, if any of you try this and come crying to me, too damned bad, your horrible choices are not my responsibility. Spirits can and do feed off the ‘Vital force’ in blood, ( the bio electricity in the red blood cells ), but only if it’s fresh from the vein and you only have a 10 to 20 minute time window before the Gore loses it’s potency.

 

The human body stores about 5 litres of blood and after 2 litres have been lost, major organ failure occurs and it is pretty much the end, one way or another. Keep this in mind, when starting to work with this part of your essence .Blood, contains all the mysterious secrets of existence, no living being can exist without.

 

The Arabian Art workers thought It profaning the great work of the Creator to eat blood.” In his turn Moses, following the universal and traditional law, forbids eating blood. Paracelsus writes that with the fumes of blood one is enabled to call forth any spirit we desire to see; for with its emanations it will build itself an appearance, a visible body. The hierophants of Baal made deep incisions all over their bodies and produced apparitions, objective and tangible, with their own blood.

 

The followers of a certain sect in Persia, many of whom may be found around the Russian settlements in Temerchan-Shoura, and Derbent, have their religious mysteries in which they form a large ring, and whirl round in a frantic dance. Their temples are ruined, and they worship in large temporary buildings, securely enclosed, and with the earthen floor deeply strewn with sand. They are all dressed in long white robes, and their heads are bare and closely shaved.

Armed with knives, they soon reach a point of furious exaltation, and wound themselves and others until their garments and the sand on the floor are soaked with blood. Before the end of the “Mystery” every man has a companion, who whirls round with him. Sometimes the spectral dancers have hair on their heads, which makes them quite distinct from their unconscious creators.

 

The taboo connected with this subject, shows us how carefully guarded are its mysteries, as well as how powerful they can be. And we can add to this the taboo connected with a women’s menstruation, but I leave that to the Ladies to write upon. Feces can work well as material for evocation, but only when piping hot out the shoot. The time of use is quite long, 30 mins to an hour, but can only be used with Earth entities and the unsavory idea of it and our deeply implanted social aversion to the unclean makes this a difficult working to pull off. Sperm and vaginal fluids gathered after masturbation can be used in the calling of sexual and love dominion entities, but your window is even smaller (about 5 mins) and it often times works best as an accumulation offering with other methods to “Prime the Pump”, so to speak.

 

When it comes to urine, nothing is better for banishing an entity, if a brazier is lit at the start of a calling in the name of the spirit, and you feel that it has decided to hang out after you have asked nicely for it to leave, piss in the brazier commanding it to flee, as the fire goes out, so will the spirit. It goes without saying to only use your own Blood or Body leavings in such workings, if you disregard this advice and do something foolish with an animal or human being, the results could be destructive, outside of a very structured spiritual tradition like Vodun, Taoism or Palo Mayombe.

I hope some of you can put this info to good use, stay Gold Everyone.

Black Friday’s Evil Egregore :Magic, Thanksgiving Genocide and Black Friday Stampedes

Black Friday

 

 

I’m of two minds on the existence of evil, really. I think people are entirely capable of it, certainly. And being Subjective on the idea of Evil, I’m not so sure about the existence of entirely evil spiritual entities, but I would put in some votes for part time ones whose goals aren’t human.But I do believe that we as Humans we can create entirely Evil Egregores. I realize this kind of puts me out there in Crazy Magical theory territory, but hey, I’m a Left Hand Path Taoist. I specialize in Crazy Magical theory .

 

I think genocide is an illness,and this illness creates Egregores though, whether it is mental or spiritual energy, or some combination of both remains to be seen. Being the both/and sort of person I am, I’d argue that it has to do with both because I believe that the mental and spiritual realms overlap on many levels. So, when you look at the Egregore of Thanksgiving you can never ignore the genocide that eventually befell Native Americans. The pillaging of land and resources, rape of women and other atrocities for the most part have been erased from our history books and replaced with the story of a festive feast where humanity was recognized and family and community uplifted..

 

What drives evil in the human heart is a question that’s plagued our species from the beginning. Humans in mobs always seem to act differently than humans as individuals, and I think that mob psychology, or maybe that egregore of psychic mob energy has something to do with it, driving us to the lowest common denominator — in this case, genocide. People pick up on each other’s emotions so easily sometimes, and I suspect that riding that kind of murderous power high is a really easy emotion to pass from person to person. I think it’s similar to terror in a crowd, when people stampede and crush others in the rush to escape rather than trying to help each other.

 

About 10-15 years ago we started hearing about bargain basement sales if you were willing go to the mall the day after Thanksgiving.The news stories about happy shoppers and the festiveness we saw at malls were replaced by stories people getting killed or seriously getting injured as folks made mad dashes for the limited items placed on sale.. Each year we saw footage or heard tales of full on fist fights and assaults with patrons fighting over the last cabbage patch dolls or that one last video camera or the only widescreen TV. Others would find themselves getting robbed in the parking lots moments after making bargain basement purchases. Something vital switches off inside us that would ordinarily lead to compassion.

What the fuck is an Egregore?

Egregore (also egregor) is an occult concept representing a “thoughtform” or “collective group mind”, an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people.

 

Sounds like the Holidays, doesn’t it? Influencing, the thoughts of a group of people, it happens everyday, and when we come closer to Thanksgiving and X-Mas, these Egregores raise there ugly heads, and lap up the Cash and blood that is spent and  split in their names.If you think about it what we are seeing is the completion of a circle.. That first ‘Thanksgiving meal between Native Americans and invading pilgrims was underlined by their greed and the desire to take over..The Egregore was created by that Greed and Desire. It wasn’t about the feast, it was about sizing folks and getting them ready to be slaughtered. We are now seeing that today, folks getting primed up to be economically and spiritually slaughtered..And the Egregore of Thanksgiving and it’s bigger cash fat Brother, Christmas, just become more and more powerful each year.

 

We will soon have a generation that will look at the holidays not as a time to spend time with family and loved ones, but a time to go shopping and score a good deal for self, and fuck that old lady holding the X-box, she doesn’t need it as much as I do..Black Friday has mutated into an unsightly beast, and we keep feeding it. And this is Magic my friends, pure dark magic, and the Corporations know it. How could they not? It has worked for so long that this entity is now able to feed itself and propagate without us. Black Thursday, Cyber Monday, all smaller Egregore’s feeding off the same energy. Retailers have manipulated customers so much that consumers are begging them to take their money,The invisible hand of the market is too busy doing invisible things to care about children, the elderly, and other people get exploited and if people get exploited its their own fault, as long as the Egregore is empowered. Rape, exploitation, and genocide is the fault of the victim, at least that is what they are trying to sell us. And we are buying it wholesale, for only $99.95.

So this year, if you think about rushing off from your loved ones to get that great deal on a 50′ Plasma TV, try and remember that you are performing magic, but not for your benefit, but to benefit those who want to destroy you.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, Stay Gold.

How to Speak with Demons: Some Practical Advice

How to speak with demons

 

 

In my travels stalking the Interwebs ( if that term offends you, what in the hell are you doing reading my page?), I am often asked the question “How do I communicate with Demons, Angels, or Aunt Penelope’s Aardvark spirit guide ?” . These queries come up over and over, by those new to the practice, and at times, in hushed tones and with baited breath, during personal messages from those who have been at it for years. This being the case, I’ve decided to give a bit of advice to help the everyday spirit worker “part the veil”.

 

Let me make myself clear about what I am talking about, ( “Cough” ) Calling Spirits, Casting out and Bringing in Demons, Binding Elementals and having High tea with Angels. Yes, gentle reader, that is what I’m writing about here.Because we live in a multi-dimensional reality, interactions with the spirit world are a natural part of the human experience. It happens every day, if you know it or not. Encounters with spirit entities can either be positive and uplifting or negative and detrimental. No, I’m not talking about Angels and Demons as a classification here when it comes to Positive or Negative:

 

“Kirsty Cotton: Who are you?”
“Pinhead: Explorers in the further regions of experience. Demons to some.Angels to others.”-Hellraiser, Clive Barker

 

The only classification that truly matters here is that the spirit has no material body (of its own) and can be called to the practitioner in a way that can be reproduced with some modicum of reliability. This can include such entities as Thought Forms and Elementals, Demons and Angels,Seelie and Unseelie Fey, Gods and Goddesses from around the world. The Art of the Karcist mainly deals with those entities that have never been mortal, or have been dead and changed for so many years (in the case of Gods or Loa) that they no longer recall their mortal lives. The funny thing about such entities and their relationship with man is that until roughly a century ago, all mental illness was treated as a sign of spirit oppression or possession.

 

 

Today all signs of oppression and possession are treated as a sign of mental illness. Because the outward symptoms of spirit oppression or possession (anxiety, disorientation, fantasies, delusions, etc.) are similar to textbook symptoms of neurosis and psychosis, the prevailing tendency is to diagnose such cases as paranoia, hysteria or schizophrenia. What I am proposing here is that the “spirit world” itself could affect the Physical and Mental body through the subconscious emotional connection with an individual Spirit. The resulting subconscious emotions will continually surface as dreams, visions, and flashes of images. Because these subconscious emotions stem from a natural interaction with the spirit world, they could never be totally repressed, but instead continually redirected into either positive or negative actions. When you look at the Preparation and Ritual that most of us go through to summon an entity to us: the states of paranoia (feelings of persecution and an exaggerated sense of self-importance), hysteria (exaggerated or uncontrollable emotion or excitement) and schizophrenia (hallucinations (most reported are hearing voices), delusions (often bizarre or persecutory in nature), and disorganized thinking and speech.)You can see that we are simply driving ourselves Mad for a short time to Evoke or Invoke an Entity.

 

So, my advice to you is simple, if your emotional state is directed towards purposely influencing the environment around you, a Spirit is called. Every individual’s mental state is accompanied by certain vibrations that resonate on the energetic and spiritual planes. The plane of physical vibrations arising from the human brain and nervous system has energetic counterparts that manifest through the vibrational resonance of the entity. To put it simply, we are filled with spirits, bacteria and the biospheric network of DNA based life has consciousness on a molecular level. “What the fuck are you blabbing about, Vincent?” I know, it sounds Mad, but that’s the point, calling an entity to you is a sort of controlled madness that we as practitioners must learn to turn on and off at the drop of a hat.

 

 

The effect of an individual’s influence over a spirit is initiated through the energetic principle of “induction,” which manifests on all three planes (physical, energetic, and emotional). The principle of induction is described as “that inherent quality or attribute of energy by which the manifestation of energy tends to reproduce itself in a second object by setting up a corresponding vibration, even though there is no direct contact between the two objects.” For example, the vibrational manifestation of heat generated in one object tends to induce the vibrational response of heat in other objects that are within its range of induction. Likewise, the vibrational resonance of light striking another object can render it capable of additionally radiating light; and through induction, a magnet can induce magnetism into a piece of steel suspended nearby, even though the two objects do not actually touch each other. In the same way, every form or manifestation of energy, including the thoughts and emotions of we hairless apes, can and do “Evoke” spirits or even cause change in other people. Take, for example, two people sitting in a room. If the first individual has covertly suppressed feelings of hostility and the second person is sensitive to the energetic resonances of anger, then the second person will begin to feel uncomfortable or suddenly act out the first person’s suppressed hostility (even if the hostility is not consciously being directed towards the second individual).

 

The emotional discomfort or the sudden acting out of emotional release then seems to happen for “no apparent reason. “This suppressed emotional state is like honey wine to a spirit with the same vibrational resonance, like attracts like and all that jazz. If the Practitioner can generate the same emotional state as, say Loki, then suppress this state and maintain it while creating an atmosphere of paranoia, hysteria and schizophrenia, the God of Strife and Mischief could not help himself, if just to see what felt so “right” about that particular time and place. When a spirit or entity approaches an individual, it will use whatever existing core images that it can find to gain access into the human’s mind and physical space. It will choose the strongest natural image available (sexual fantasies, anger and rage grief and resentment, fears and phobias, depression and despair, obsession and compulsion, happiness and joy, etc.).If we control what those images and emotions are at the time of summoning, we can have that much more influence over the end result of the ritual. More so, if we can recall that emotional state and invest it into an Item or even a hand sign (Mudra, for you Yoginis out there) the process of calling and summoning becomes accessible outside of the Ritual Chamber. Or, conversely,  if we empty ourselves of all emotion and become a still and clean cup for the spirit to reside in for a time, the process of Invocation or becoming ridden is made much more accessible.

 

I do hope this Advice is found helpful by all of you, and that you find just what you are looking for in the ritual chamber of life. Stay Gold Everyone.

READING OMENS like a Taoist Sage, I mean like a Boss!

24248365ef4dd7ac3712b734018d0d67

 

 

au·gu·ry
ˈôɡ(y)ərē/
noun
a sign of what will happen in the future; an omen.
“they heard the sound as an augury of death”

 
Augury and the reading omens is a big deal to the Taoist Wu. Signs can come to you in the natural world, and according to an ancient Han text, these observations are considered to be important Omens that all Taoist Wu and lay persons should watch for in their day to day life.Some may seem  familiar to the Western Occult Practitioner,but a few are quite odd and culturally peculiar. These omens are based on observing certain phenomena that occurs externally (in the Macrocosm) rather than internally (in the physical body). Have fun looking for ravens and magpies, and read those Omens like a Boss…

 
. Animals
• If a raven flies over one’s head Calamity will come

• If an owl is seen entering the house His visit does not come for nothing, change comes with him
• If magpies come before noon, They announce joys

• If magpies come after noon, There are demons about

 

House guests will come
• When wild magpies chatter
• When the cat washes its face
• If ants plunder and rob the nests of others ants – there will soon be rain

• If many mosquitoes fly against the wind, It will rain

 

. Candle /Lamp Flames
• If the flower of a candlewick snaps or flashes, ­ Wealth approaches
• If a lamp wick sputters and throws out sparks tonight -Happiness will arrive in the home tomorrow”

. Sky
• If a rainbow is observed in the East It indicates that fine weather is approaching

• If a rainbow is observed in the West It indicates that rain is approaching

• If the sky is observed as red in the morning ­ It indicates that it will rain in the afternoon
• If the sky is observed as red in the evening Fair weather is approaching

• If a halo is observed around the Moon It indicates that a wind Dragon (Typhoon!) is approaching

 

. Phantom Stars
According to the Miscellaneous Divination of Lu Fong,the Heavenly Patterns and Phantom Stars, observed in the Heavens could reveal the following:
• Red Colored Star: A Great army approaching, much death is coming
• Yellow Colored Star: Extremely long train of army soldiers approaching, but the land will be defended
• White Colored Star: Great mourning, illness, plague
• Green /Blue Colored Star: The condition of the annual harvest will be positive
• Black Colored Star: Approaching flood, buy a Ship!
. Miscellaneous
• When the stones under the house posts become wet – it indicates that rain is approaching
• Five days of rain or ten days of wind Are both good omens for winning at Gambling on the very next dry day (the term used was Mahjong ,but I bet it could apply to cards as well)
• A Six-petalled snow fall (I’m from the south, and haven’t a fucking clue what this means) – Indicates a good omen of an abundant year for prostitution !
• When eyes quiver and eyebrows grown long, somebody’s telling what you’ve done wrong

• When a woman in the state of Ch’i is abused, there will be no rain for three years

•A son should not live under the same sky as his fathers murderer, if he tries to, dogs will bark more often till he moves away or avenges his fathers death.

 

Stay Gold folks….

On the Paris Bombings: A Word from Voltaire

Engage!

“Those Who Can Make You Believe Absurdities, Can Make You Commit Atrocities”—Voltaire

VoltaireVoltaire, the clearest of Enlightenment thinkers wrote those words in his 1765 essay, “Questions sur les miracles.” And they resonate as much now, 250 years later, as they did then.

That’s why I guard against Buddhist extremism and absurdities, like “You do not exist; nothing exists in the absolute sense.” Or the notion that “Nothing I do is inherently good or bad; it just is; everything is ultimately pure.” That kind of doctrinal extremism can lead to “It doesn’t matter if I kill you–you do not actually exist and neither do I. I can do no wrong.” Buddhist extremism has been used in the past to justify Buddhist wars and genocide of other religious minorities. Ambedkar devised a Buddhism that avoided doctrinal extremes, that could not be used to justify hatred and maltreatment of others, whether because…

Clinger 2015 Directed by Michael Steves- Review

images (9)

 

When her possessive high school boyfriend dies in a gruesome accident, Fern Petersen’s life is thrown into turmoil. Things go from bad to worse when he returns as a love-sick ghost to kill her so they can be together for eternity. And yes that is the movie in a nutshell.Part teen romance with a twist, part Horror Comedy that works at times, yet falls flat when it wants to deliver. Clinger attempts to provide a lot of laughs, and would like to scare you at the same time, unfortunately, it didn’t quite have the actors or the budget to pull this off consistently. Over-acting is the word of the day when it comes to this film, but I think some of that was planed,  and the fact that the movie makes fun of it’self made it worth the watch. The ending was one of the most ridiculous seances that I’ve had the pleasure of watching, and a number accidentally funny bits had me smiling for an hour after. All and all, the film was worth the time spent, and keep an eye out for Fern’s sister and the sister’s boyfriend, these two made me laugh the loudest, and gave the comedic relief in all the right places.  I give it 2 1/2 Hats
