Frenzy Magic

This type of magick involves the individual(s) becoming possessed by acausal energies by creating through specific techniques a physical and emotional frenzy. Frenzy magick to be successful requires the individual at the height of the induced frenzy to visualize (or using vibration to chant) the intended outcome of the ritual -for example, if the ritual is undertaken to destroy by magick a certain person, then the visualization is the death of that person in the manner chosen a suitable phrase...

The Dark Gods

According to tradition, the Dark Gods are actual entities which exist in the acausal universe. According to our spatial, causal perception, these beings may be regarded as 'timeless and chaotic'. Since our consciousness is by its nature partly acausal these entities can become manifest for us if we possess the keys to reach the appropriate levels of consciousness. What is termed the 'Abyss' separates our everyday consciousness from the consciousness (and thus apprehension) of the Dark Gods. The...

Aperiatur terra et germinet Lucifer

They then dress, and depart from the place of the ritual. It should be noted that in this ritual - as elsewhere - Lucifer is regarded as the light-bringer Prometheus, the bringer of Thought, the one who seeks to know. The third and final part of this stage involves you in setting yourself a difficult physical goal, and striving to achieve this. For instance, aiming to run 20 miles in 2 V2 hours or less, cycling 100 miles in under 5 V2 hours. Such a goal should involve you in training for some...

Vibration

Vibration implies that each part of the word to be used, (either alone or as part of a text or key) is resonated deeply and this requires the person to be standing and the 'solar plexus' to be used to generate the deep breathing required, the mouth acting as a resonant cavity. The vibration should be such that it is felt in the whole body - a vibration is not a shout or scream but rather a prolonged concentration of sound energy. For example, to vibrate the word 'Satan'. Take a deep breath and...

Dark Pathways I

The spheres of the Septenary may be said to be the Nexus between causal and acausal (or 'Being' and 'non-being') and the paths linking the spheres may be regarded from a magickal point of view as zones of energy. This energy is according to tradition symbolized in an archetypal way since it is through such symbolism that control of the energy is possible. The tables below give details of this symbolism, the chants vibration appropriate to a specific symbol, and the sigils associated with a...

Stage Five Entering the Abyss

In the Septenary system, the Abyss lies between the spheres of Sun and Mars - it is the region where the 'acausal' and the 'causal' meet. The Septenary system - the seven spheres and the paths linking them - is regarded as a map of our own consciousness. Our consciousness, by its nature, is both causal and acausal - that is, both rational and 'irrational', where this 'irrational' includes the unconscious. In one sense, the causal is linear, progressive, evolutionary, and the acausal is unified,...

Stage Four Internal Adept

The first part of this stage requires you to become skilled in the Star Game - regular playing of the game with an opponent (and, if possible, this should be your 'magickal' companion) is the best way to attain this. You should also study the esoteric theory behind the game - relating the symbols and their transformations to the Septenary system and so on. Once you are satisfied with your progress in the Star Game, you can undertake the Grade Ritual of Internal Adept, which is the second part...

The Modes

The seven Greek modes correspond to the spheres of the Septenary (see Appendix I) as follows The modes used in esoteric chant are the 'Gregorian' or plainchant ones and these are related, according to tradition, to the spheres and thus the Greek modes thus Hence, if a piece of chant is sung correctly in, for example, mode IV, then such a chant will be a re-presentation of the energies or forces associated with the appropriate sphere - in this case Moon Nox. Such energies may be used in the...

Other Methods

Willed concentration involves gradually building up the appropriate emotion while standing still through the use of breathing exercises and the alternate contraction and relaxation of muscles. Deep breaths are taken and the muscles of the arms, legs and back contracted imagine with the inward breath that energy (of the appropriate type - love, hate and so on) is being drawn into the body. The breath is then exhaled slowly and the muscles relaxed. This continues for at least a quarter of an hour...

Magickal Chant

Chant Return Atazoth

Magickal chant is essentially monophonic and for this reason is generally (when it is written down at all) represented in Gregorian notation - as distinct from the 'blob' notation used in modern music. Magickal chant is sung unaccompanied in one of the seven fundamental (or Greek) modes - Lydian, Dorian and so on, the modes themselves being representations of Septenary forces as described by the Septenary Tree of Life and the correspondences associated with it. There are three basic ways of...

The Left Handed Path

The LHP is essentially internal magick because such magick means the use, by the individual, of the Dark Pathways that link the seven spheres of the Tree of Wyrd. There are no light pathways since the pathways by nature imply a flow of energy and such flow can only be directional. Directional energy means Change, in the causal -the emergence of Chaos through a 'gate'. For a long time, the nature of the LHP has been misunderstood. The traditional definition as magick used for personal...

Theory Of Magick

Fundamental to magick is a belief that the phenomenal world of the five senses is incomplete. Magickians believe that we live in a world quite different from the one our five senses show to us - they believe that every living thing possesses, because it is living, certain energies which we as individuals can sense and 'see' if we become receptive to them. This receptiveness is one of the aims of magickal or Occult Initiation - and may be said to involve the individual in becoming aware of the...
