THEM Hypersigil – Part 3

PART ONE – PART TWO – PART THREE – PART FOUR – GRAPHIC NOVEL POST-SCRIPT THEM as HYPERSIGIL Let’s continue with the description of my Hypersigil with the next section, which was originally Issue Three. This will be a shorter post as this section has less going on Magicaly than the others. Panicked and upset by the appearance of THEM, Roman reacts by running away. I wanted THEM to become a bit Zombie like at this point, less human and almost like a loop recording but still quite imposing, bigger than life and unshakable. I wanted THEM to start to feel sticky and slimey as the Read More …

MEDITATION: How exactly do you Meditate?

How exactly do you Meditate? After the previous post I got a few messages asking me to explain exactly what my meditation practice is at the minute. I am no expert, so take all of the following information in the spirit it is offered. This is what I do and it seems to be working well for me. Hopefully it could work for you too. The meditation I am doing now has a few elements to it, which either I do on different days or split my daily meditation time up into each part.  I’ll break it down and explain each part.

MAGICK DIARY: Enjoying, not Enduring

Meditation. My Meditation practice is going really well at the minute. I have gone from totally hating it, to really looking forward to it. The ten minutes a day I started off with 7 or 8 months ago (which was such a chore and demanded so much effort to actually force myself to do)  has transformed into a wanting to Meditate for 40 minutes or more – even twice a day on some days. I was using the Headspace program but after going through their Three Foundation series I wanted to branch off into my own way for awhile. I probably will come Read More …

REVIEW: STAR.SHIPS by Gordon White

STAR.SHIPS REVIEW “Star.Ships addresses the question of who we are now by tracing where we come from, and by drawing out the stories and the spirits that have journeyed and evolved with us. The goal is the restoration of context.” At some point we have just taken someone’s word for a lot of the things we all take for granted as fact. Usually it’s because we believe and agree with them, it seems logical or it doesn’t look like anyone credible is refuting them. So we accept it as written and move on. This is necessary as we just don’t have Read More …

Meddling with Meditation

Just thought I should put some sort of text post within the art and weekly posts to remind everyone, particularly myself, that this is, in fact an actual blog. I will be getting back to the THEM as Hypersigil posts – there are two remaining in that series, but I want to leave a bit of a gap between the first two and the last two so that there is a bit of space between the posts. GET SOME HEADSPACE My Meditation practice has been going well, so much so that I actually am beginning to enjoy it. I am as shocked Read More …
