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. I have been meaning to write another post about THEM for a 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 …

The CMG AMA with Alan Chapman Round up Post (Includes PODCAST)

ALAN CHAPMAN ASK ME ANYTHING ON CMG. Last Friday we had an AMA with the great Alan Chapman over on the Facebook Chaos Magic Group (CMG). It went really well and you can read the thread HERE. (Note you will have to be a member of CMG to see it). In case you were wondering why I didn’t publicly announce this before the AMA, the simple answer is that these types of events have previously attracted a huge number of trolls, and spam and fake accounts, which put a tremendous amount of unneeded extra work on the Group’s Admins and Read More …

Resistance is Futile

I have a very rocky relationship with my understanding of the spiritual ideas of “surrender” and “letting go” in regard to what they actually mean in a practical day to day way. I have talked before about how, to me, it often seems that in taking particular (mostly bastardised) Buddhist ideas to their conclusions, it would lead you to the suggestion that the best thing is to”just give up”. It feels to me, that ultimately these sort of teachings purport that to be happy, you must give up on your ambitions, your goals, your dreams, your drives, your whatevers. The cause of your Read More …

The Uncrossing Ritual

So, in my last post I talked about the experience of sometimes getting the exact opposite of what you magicked for and discussed a bit about this has manifested in my life. One of the things that I disregarded as a factor was me being Cursed or Crossed or otherwise Hexed. However, as a number of people mentioned to me that I shouldn’t dismiss this idea so quickly, I said, yea why not? let’s look at this thing and see what I can do about it. The main feedback I got about doing an Uncrossing Ritual (i.e. a ritual to get rid Read More …

When the Ancestors call for Dinner

Ancestor work and Ancestor Offerings are seen as one of the most valued Magick practices, if not the practice, by many people who’s thoughts and Ideas on Magick I enjoy. Gordon White has a whole section on it in The Chaos Protocols, as does Jason Miller in his Strategic Sorcery course and books, as do many others. It’s cited as an extremely beneficial practice due to your Ancestors probably being the best spirits you can work with. They already have a deep connection to you, are likely to be loving, kind, helpful towards you and would want only good things for you. The problem Read More …

It’s Happening! – Magick Works!

MAGICK WORKS! So, Sigils have started working massively well for me, which is great as I am trying to properly engage my Magick journey. As always, Gordon is my go to guy for Sigils, and it’s his slightly updated version of a Sigil Magick System in The Chaos Protocols that has been giving me the recent results. The new version isn’t a huge departure from his Blog Version – it’s still Shoaling and Robofish – but it puts it all more properly in a  Traditional Ritual context. There is a banishing, a Goddess Invocation, a non-masturbatery sigil activation process and a Read More …

On the lack of a Magickal Origin Story

Gordon White’s new book came out early in the digital world and I have since read it twice (and now bought it three times – what can I say, I’m a fan). There isn’t going to be a full review this time or anything like my post I did for Star.Ships, as I really don’t like doing reviews. There is always a voice in the back of my head that reminds me of my complete lack of right to judge other people’s creativity as good or bad. So instead, I will just say that I really enjoyed it, so much I Read More …

THEM Hypersigil – Part 4

PART ONE – PART TWO – PART THREE – PART FOUR – GRAPHIC NOVEL POST-SCRIPT This part opens with Roman wanting to leave the City completely and we return to the scene which opened the story. Here we see “The Idea” has fully grown and starts to call out to Roman. THEM have become like tar and oil as Roman has warped the originally thoughts and memories out of all proportion. These beliefs tower over him and start to engulf him. This is me, trying my very utmost to describe the sensation around when your thoughts, feelings and emotions totally destroy you. To me, it feels Read More …

MAGICK DIARY: Planetary Prosperity Magick

Planetary Prosperity  Magick REASON FOR THE RITUAL I had an afternoon free to myself and I wanted to do a bigger and more involved Ritual than my normal daily routine. I decided to go with Prosperity Magick as money is always a good thing to have a round. Usually Money Magick is done in emergencies and this is certainly not the most opportune time. There is a huge element of panic involved in emergency Magick that usually effects the outcome, or lack thereof. So, doing a working for better prosperity while my financial situation is quite good felt like a good thing. Think Read More …

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 …

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 …
