LIFE: W.L.F.T.S Update 4

If you haven’t read the other posts then all this will make more sense if you do. ? INTRO POST – UPDATE ONE – UPDATE TWO – UPDATE THREE WEIGHT LOSS FOR THE SOUL: UPDATE 4 I had my fourth weigh-in last Saturday and I have lost over another  8 lbs (3.6Kg) with my total loss now being 48lbs (22kg) or just under 3 and a half stone in 132 days! This was a shorter round than previous but only by a week or so. PHYSICAL I started jogging during this round as I am now light enough to use the treadmill we have here at home. I Read More …

LIFE: My Cat Púca Died

Púca So, my cat Púca died last week, which led into a pretty sad week for me. I can always tell when I am out of balance as the physicality of the world really starts to play up – liquids spill, items get knocked over more easily, stuff won’t fit back into places I just took them out of and other stuff falls over no matter what way I try to balance – it seemingly disobeying the laws of physics to do so. The physical-ness of the world seems out of kilter as if I don’t fully fit in anymore. The first Read More …

LIFE: W.L.F.T.S Update 2

If you haven’t read the other posts then all this will make more sense if you do. 🙂 INTRO POST – UPDATE ONE Weight loss for the soul: Update 2 I had my second weigh-in today and I have lost a further  10 lbs (4.7Kg) with my total loss now being 30lbs (13.7kg) or over 2 stone! This is just awesome as it is only day 69! PHYSICAL This section was slightly harder than the last section in that the momentum and drive waned a bit, and I noticed I started to say things like “50 more calories today won’t Read More …

THEM Hypersigil: Post Script

THEM Hypersigil: Post Script OR the “Hold on a minute I have been too hasty” update. PART ONE – PART TWO – PART THREE – PART FOUR – GRAPHIC NOVEL POST-SCRIPT Having recently worked on formatting THEM for release on Amazon, the hypersigil element of the book has been on my mind a lot recently. I actually re-read it last night and I have to say that it looks wonderful on my Kindle Fire. You can check it out HERE if you like, if you have Kindle Unlimited you can read it for free.

LIFE: W.L.F.T.S Update 1

If you haven’t read the first post then all this will make more sense if you do. It’s HERE! PHYSICAL So, I had my first weight in today. I am aiming for a weigh in every 30 days but on the Saturday that falls after that. So this is in fact day 34. The great news is that I have lost 18 pound or just over a stone – which is fucking awesome. This is the most weight I have lost in years, so I am delighted. People have been asking what my goal is, but I’m not really sure yet. At my Read More …

Magick, Facebook and I

A recent conversation about social media with my wife led to some interesting insights about my friends list on Facebook. My wife was saying that she was sick of people on social media always going on about how great their lives are and all the wonderful things that are happening all the time to them. She said it isn’t a jealousy thing, she loves hearing good news from people, what annoys her is that she doesn’t believe it’s true. My response was that the vast majority of my social media timeline is filled with people talking about how shit everything is Read More …

LIFE: Weight loss for the Soul

Happy New Year everyone, I hope this year is your best one yet! One of the things that I have been working on over the last number of years is becoming more healthy – particularly I want to lose weight and I am bringing a renewed sense of determination to it going into this new year. For most of my life I have been overweight, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, but it has always been an issue with me. Since I gave up nicotine I have put on a further two stone or so. It has become a constant companion Read More …

Wilde At Heart!

WHAT STUART WILDE CAN TEACH CHAOS MAGICIANS I have spoken numerous times before about how Stuart Wilde was one of my early and lasting influences and yet I am always surprised by how few people actually recognise the name. He was a huge deal back in the day but now his name draws blank stares. Admittedly this has probably a lot to do with the circles I am in these days – Chaos Magicians really don’t like getting too close to any sort of New Age ideas just in case their friends see them hanging around with the nice kids. That New Age Read More …

Adventures in Krishna Consciousness

TEENAGE KICKS One of the biggest eye opening experiences for me was when I was about eighteen. At that stage of my life I was heavily into Stuart Wilde and Alice Bailey but was looking to widen my horizons on the spiritual side of things. Both Wilde and Bailey had come into my life because of my Aunt who originally owned the books and had loaned them to my parents. She later bought me a full set of Bailey Books, which have since dwindled over the years as friends “borrowed” them. I have two battered copies of my original Stuart Wilde books Read More …
