New Hermetics Sex Magick

Sex magick does not form an official part of the New Hermetics instructions, but it is an important and useful technique for the adept, and I thought I should address it in some way. A lot of wordy drivel has been written on this subject in the last few years. In truth, sex magick is very simple and straightforward and can be entirely explained in just a few sentences.

Sex magick has often been thought of as an unsavory and sometimes evil technique, relegated to the "left-hand path" or "black magick" side of a number of magical and mystical traditions. However, this is not at all true. The idea that sex magick is evil came from the antiquated and malignant idea that women were, in and of themselves, somehow impure. Hence any connection with them was viewed as necessarily partaking of evil. We are now capable of recognizing the absurdity of this.

Sex magick is a beautiful sacrament, an ecstatic communion with a lover. Through this connection, you can achieve communion with the cosmic consciousness of the universe. When a woman and a man come together in the act of love, they are, at that time, the true image of the living god, male-female, mother-father, Pangcnetor-Pangcnctrix. (I Iowcvcr, it should be noted that sex magick can, for the most part, be performed by any other combination of partners, male-male, female-female, or even by oneself-—with varied results, of course).

To really understand sex magick, you must consciously recognize that, in our genital fluids, there is the power to create life—millions of lives, in the case of the male of the species. The moment of orgasm is a moment of pure potentiality in which a new life can be created. This power can be directed toward making a baby or, as in the case of sex magick, any other creation. In the sex act, we are connecting the spiritual and physical planes in a singular fashion, and we can direct this spiritual power in any way imaginable. Usually, this takes the form of a specific "bud-will," or desired manifestation in the sex magicians lives. This can be anything from wishing for increased wealth to connecting with some form oí godhead. Really, any purpose can be adapted to a sex-magical context. However, this technique should only be used, if at all, once you have explored and mastered all of the previous techniques of the New Hermetics. It requires a one-pointed concentration that will be quite natural once you have completed the New Hermetics program through the Adept level. That being said, here is a general outline of the procedure.

1. A purpose must be decided in advance of the sex act. For what will this sexual act be consecrated? It is a good idea for manifestations to have some sort of talisman, which should be handy at the time of the operation. Those described earlier in the text arc perfectly suited to this purpose. For other purposes, you may easily adapt many of the earlier techniques in this manual (i.e., gods, elementáis, energies, etc.) All people-involved with the sex act should definitely be working toward the same purpose.

2. Participants should bathe, consciously purifying themselves, clearing body and mind for the upcoming rite.

3. Before commencing, some sort of preparatory exercises should be undertaken, such as entering the altered state (see page 73) and perhaps performing the New Hermetics grounding and centering (see page 99). But at this point in your career, your inner world should be naturally balanced enough that a few-simple focusing breaths may suffice. You may also wish to perform some sort of opening ritual. This is up to you.

4. Sexual stimulation can now begin. For the moment, the purpose of the rite should be forgotten so that the fires of passion can really be ignited. Sexual stimulation should be complete and passionate. Once all is ready sexually, you can begin having sex.

5. Once you start having sex, your concentration must turn back to the purpose of your operation and remain directed toward that purpose for the rest of the rite. Direct your pas sion ecscacically toward the purpose of the operation. If working with a partner, truly connect with your partner on all levels and, through that connection, direct your will.

6. This passion must extend for as long as possible, no less than half an hour. Passion should be heaped upon passion, until orgasm seems impossible to avoid. However, do not yield to orgasm. Instead, continue focusing on your purpose, directing ic through che ecstatic connection with your partner. It may be useful to chant some sort of mantra or spell to keep you directed. This mantra can be anything from the name of some god to a word of power or some rhyming couplet you write or borrow. You can also use one or more of the New Hermetics tools during this period if it seems applicable. Continue until you lose all sense of yourself and your partner in pure ecstasy.

7. Orgasm should be simultaneous with your partner, if you have a partner. This indicates both your intimate connection and che singularity of the act. Ac the moment of orgasm, the will must be entirely focused on the operation, even though consciousness may be lost in ecstasy.

8. The sexual fluids should be gathered. A portion of them should be placed on the talisman if there is one, and the practitioners should consume the rest. This is of the utmost importance and must not be omitted. These fluids are the charged product of the working; this is a true Eucharist. The combined fluids of man and woman are a perfect substance, "not living and not dead, neither liquid nor solid, neither hot nor cold, neither male nor female."10 It is one substance, containing all possibilities. This is the Elixir of Life.

It is said that, once a person begins to use sex magick, all sexual acts must be consecrated toward magick, or negative energy may accumulate due to the unbalanced forces attracted by undirected sexual force. I have not necessarily found this to be true, but I think it best to share this information in the interest of prudence and completeness.

Since the publication of my previous book, 21st Century Mage (Weiser Hooks, 2002), which is all about obtaining cosmic consciousness or the I loly Guardian Angel, many people have asked me about The Hornless Ritual, which was the tool that Aleister Crowley used to attain to his own Holy Guardian Angel.11 I was initially hesitant to include anything on this subject, because it is a very specific rather than a universal tool. However, 1 have since found quite a lot of value in it, using the "barbarous words" as a sort of long, varying mantra. Some may find this a useful tool. Still, it is not without trepidation that 1 add this as an appendix to the New Hermetics system as an alternate or complementary technique for attaining cosmic consciousness.

With this mental ritual, you will expand yourself actively into cosmic consciousness. The purpose is to establish an active link between your consciousness and cosmic consciousness. This link will increase your power to transform your life positively. This method is similar in structure to the New Hermetics grounding and centering pattern, but adding some ancient magical words of power from the Hellenistic Hermetic formulae of ancient Alexandria. The magick words that you will use with this are at least 2000 years old. There seems to be a mysterious power that comes with age. It will, of course, take some time to memorize all these formulae. I personally made a GD to guide me through the whole process. You may wish to do the same, or you can purchase my GD if you like.12 The technique goes as follows:

1. Enter the altered state using your meditation anchor (seepage 132).

2. Go to your inner temple (see page 90).

3. Perform the New Hermetics grounding and centering if you wish (see page 99), although you can probably omit it at this point if you have really solidified your inner temple with several solid months of work.

4. Look up at that shining globe of white brilliance above your head, and you can allow this globe to become larger and brighter.

5. Become aware of the crown of your head. Feel the pure white light ol cosmic consciousness entering the crown of your head so that you see your whole head beginning to glow. This is the energy of cosmic consciousness moving into your body. Feel and see this light energy moving through you, feeling the warmth and tingling of pure pleasure and joy as ecstatic waves of energy wash over you. As you experience the pure pleasure of the light of cosmic consciousness filling your being, say to yourself:

I invoke you Hornless One, being)¡ess that has no beginning and no end.

You who create the earl!) and the heavens.

You who create the night and the day.

You who create the darkness and the light.

You are myself wade perfect that no one has ever seen.

You are matter, destroying to create, you are force, destroying to create.

You have distinguished the just and the unjust, the female and the male.

You produce the seed and the fruit, making all to love and to hate one another.

You create the moist and the dry and that which flourishes all life. I am your prophet to whom you have given your mysteries.

Hear me, for I am yours. You are myself made perfect.

6. Now look toward the east of your temple ahead of you, to the yellow wall of air. See billowing clouds of yellowish air before you, and see a giant golden yellow being forming in the billows of cloud in the cast, a bird, perhaps. This is the guardian of the element of air. Move into the wall, becoming one with the guardian, feeling the awesome elemental power of the guardian within you. glowing brightly. Allow yourself to expand outward to fill the universe more and more with each word as you say to yourself the sacred words:

AR... THI-A-0... RHE-l-BET.. . A-THE-LE-BER-SET ... A . . . BE-LA-THA ... AB-E-U... EB-E-U... PHI. . . THE-TA-SO-E. ..IB.. . THI-A-0

7. Say to yourself:

Hear my word, and make all spirits subject to my command, so that every spirit, whether of the heavens or of the air, of the earth or beneath the earth, on land or in the waters, and every force, feeling, and form in the cosmos is mine to command.

8. Look toward the south of your temple coward your right, the red wall of fire. See burning flames before you, and see a giant fiery-red being forming in the flames of the south, a lion, perhaps. This is your guardian of the element of fire. Move into the wall, becoming one with the guardian, feeling the awesome elemental power of the guardian within you glowing brightly. Allow yourself to expand outward to fill the universe more and more with each word as you say to yourself the sacred words:

AR-O'GO'GO'RU'BRA'O. . . SO-TO-U. . . MU-DO-RI-O. .. PHA-LAR- TA-0. . . 0-0-0. . . A-PE

9. Say to yourself:

Hear my word, and make all spirits subject to my command, so that every spirit, whether of the heavens or of the air, of the earth or beneath the earth, on land or in the waters, and every force, feeling, and form in the cosmos is mine to command.

10. Look toward your right, to the west of your temple behind you, the blue wall of water. See undulating waves of water before you, and see a giant pulsing blue being forming in the flow of water behind you in the west, a dragon or serpent, perhaps. This is the guardian of the element of water. Move into the wall, becoming one with the guardian, feeling the awesome elemental power of the guardian within you glowing brightly. Allow yourself to expand outward to fill the universe more and more with each word as you say to your-self the sacred words:

RU-A-BRA-l-A-O . . . MRI-O-DOM. . . BA-BA-LON-HAL-BIN-A-BAFT. .. A-SAL-ON-A-I.. . A-PHE-NI-A-0... /. . . PHO-TETH. .. A-BR/l-SAX... A-E-O-O-U... I-SCHU-RE

11. Say to yourself:

Hear my word, and make all spirits subject to my command, so that every spirit, whether of the heavens or of the air, of the earth or beneath the earth, on /and or in the waters, and every force, feeling, and form in the cosmos is mine to command.

12. Look toward your right, to the north of your temple, the black wall of earth. See rocky structures forming before you, and see a giant earthy black being forming among the structures in the north, a hippopotamus or cow, perhaps. This is the guardian of the element of earth. Move into the wall, becoming one with the guardian, feeling the awesome elemental power of the guardian within you glowing brightly. Allow yourself to expand to fill the universe more and more with each word as you say to yourself the sacred words:

MA . .. BAR-Rl-O. .. l-O'EL . .. KO-THA A-THO-RF-BA-LO . . . A-BRA-OT

13. Say to yourself:

Hear my word, and make all spirits subject to my command, so that every spirit, whether of the heavens or of the air; of the earth or beneath the earth, on land or in the waters, and every force, feeling, and form in the cosmos is mine to command.

14. You will now connect more fully with cosmic consciousness, so look up once again at that shining globe of white brilliance above your head and allow this globe to become larger and brighter.

I 5. As the light grows, you become aware of the crown of your head. Feel and see the pure white light of cosmic consciousness entering the crown of your head so that your whole head begins to glow as the energy of cosmic consciousness moves into your body. 16. Allow yourself to flow upward into the light of this globe as the light flows into you, and feel yourself grow upward and outward, dissolving into the light as you say to yourself the sacred words:

A-OT. . . A-BA-OT.. . BA-SA-U-M. . . l-SAK. . . SA-BA-O. . . l-A-0

This is the ruler of the universe whom the winds fear. . . / his is who made voice and all things were created. Ruler, master, helper . . .

l-E-O-U. . . PUR. . . EO-U. . . PUR. . . I-A-OTH... E A-E-O. . . I-O-O-U.. . A-BRA-SAX. . . SA-BREAM. . . O-()... U-U. . . E-U. . . 0-0. . . U-U... A-DO-NA-l. . . E-Dli. . . li-DU. . . AN-GE-LO-STON- THE-ON. . . AN-IA-1A . .. I.A-1. . . GA'l'A . . . A-E-PE. . . Dl-A-THAR-NA . . . THO-RON

/ am the hornless one. Having sight in the feet: strong and the immortal fire. / am the truth. I am the one in lightning and in thunder. My sweat is the rain that showers the earth with life. My mouth is ever flaming. I am the maker and begetter of the light!

I am the grace of the world. The heart girt with a serpent is my name.

17. Allow yourself to move beyond these sensations into pure undifferentiated white light, feeling yourself at once all things and disintegrating into nothing.

18. Cease being anything and allow yourself to be with infinity.

19. Return to your inner temple.

20. Perform the New Hermctics grounding and centering.

21. Return to normal consciousness.
