On magical pentacles, lamens and seals.

alchemyparusha

On magical pentacles, lamens and seals. And the Art of making them.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

I observed that when one engrave the metal with a burin it seems that it is very powerful. Much effort is put into the fabrication of a Seal or pentacle. That is reflected in its magical force it has. Its not like some think that one has to believe in it and that is is just a psychological projection of the believer. It always works if one believe it or not. Everyone who is sensitive will feel that. Therefore I ask people to feel and describe what they feel when I put a pentacle/ talisman in their hands in a pouch.

A well and skilled made pentacle envelopes a magical energy and holds it, related to the beings/ entities and energies written on it. The magician creates…

Narcissism and Astrology, Donald Trump,ancient Pompeii

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

On Valentine’s day, archeologists display a beautiful find of a fresco from Ancient Pompeii, the old Roman city destroyed in a massive earthquake in AD 79. The fresco is very well-preserved of the Ancient Greek myth of Narcissus.

in Ovid’s telling of the story and the most well known, Narcissus was a very handsome Greek young man who had many suitors the nymph Echo among them- but he scorned all of his suitors. The Goddess Nemesis, as an aspect of Aphrodite the Goddess of Love, in revenge, lures Narcissus to a pool where he sees his own reflection in the water and falls madly in love with himself. He eventually realizes it’s his own reflection and withers away from his own unrequited passion until only a gold and white flower remains. The beautifully scented Narcissus. There are other versions of the story and more recent ones state that Narcissus’s suitors…

Isis Names: Is Your Next Magical Name in This List?

Let’s talk about theophoric names.

You may have spotted that “theophoric” isa Greek word; itmeans “Deity-bearing.” In other words, the name of a Deity is incorporated into the name ofa human being.Isidora is an example. Itmeans “Gift of Isis.” In the ancient world, a name like that would probably have meant that the parents credited the Goddess with helping them conceive, so the child was Her gift. Since for me Isidora isa “taken” name rather than a given one, I take it to meanthat the Goddess has given me many gifts.

This is the most common hieroglypic writing of Isis' name in Egyptian.
This is the most common hieroglypic writing of Isis’ name in Egyptian.

Of course, thesimplest form of naming for the Goddesswould be to just adopt Her name. There was at least oneancient Egyptian queen named Isis (Iset, in Egyptian), a queen…

The Goddess Isis & the Virtue of Tolerance

Isiopolis

I don’t have to tell you that we are living in divided times. I don’t have to tell you that we are living in intolerant times. I don’t even have to tell you that many people today think tolerance—political or religious—is a bad thing. Yet in my stubborn heart, I still believe it’s a virtue. Especially in a religious context, and even knowing all its attendant problems.

Yes. Religious tolerance is hard.

thomas_jefferson_on_religious_tolerance_bumper_sticker-p128998325021674241en8y3_400

And it always has been. Even in a polytheistic world where people were used to dealing with a variety of religious expressions.

For instance, Greek comic playwrights often made fun of the religious practices of Egyptians, usually focusing on their reverence for animals as manifestations of the Divine. This 4th-century-BCE bit by Anaxandrides of Rhodes, who won many awards for his work, is an example. He writes as Demos (“the people”) to Egypt:

I couldn’t have myself allied…

Iphis, Ianthe, and Isis, the LGBT-friendly Goddess

Isiopolis

This is one of my favorite posts. It has been criticized for being a too-modern interpretation of an ancient tale. The tale itself is merely a retelling and paraphrase from a translation of Ovid; so that is as it is. And yes, my interpretation is indeed modern. But reinterpretation is itself part of our Pagan heritage. Look at how philosophers reinterpreted ancient myths so they were relevant to their own thought. In Egypt, scribes made notes in the margins of older written texts, explaining the ancient symbols and stories for their own age. Because that is the power of the tale, the power of myth, the power of story. The core of it remains the same, but when we look at it with our modern eyes and take it into our modern hearts, we discover our own interpretations, enabling ancient myth to live for us today.

Hear now the tale…

This aspect helps us to deal with our nightmares our shadows and fears. My dreams have been very intense in the last few days. Pay attention to your dreams when you wake up, do record them. A good day for searching your soul and deep down scraping the bottom of your shadows. Your intuition is a sharp as a knife. Feelings are intense and its hard to not obsess about everything.

Musings …

THUS PREACHED HERMES:

“O people of the earth, men born and made of the elements, but with the spirit of the Divine Man within you, rise from your sleep of ignorance! Be sober and thoughtful. Realize that your home is not in the earth but in the LIGHT. Why have you delivered yourselves over unto death, having power to partake of immortality? Repent, and change your minds. Depart from the dark light and forsake corruption forever. Prepare yourselves to climb through the Seven Rings and to blend your souls with the eternal LIGHT.” – Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of all Ages, 1928, page 40

EVOCATION | Energy Clearing With Golden Light Energy Clearing with Golden Solar Light

 
To begin, allow your awareness to shift within… Focusing on your heart center, and allowing your awareness to enter into your heart and allowing your heart open.
 
Let yourself effortlessly and naturally tune into light, warmth, and peace within your open heart.
 
Then repeat in your mind or aloud:
 
“I call in my team of guides and angels and Archangel Michael, please cleanse my energy so that I may brightly shine and step into being of service at a higher level.”
 
As a quick side note, when you ask for things from the angels with the clear intent for being of service at a higher level, know that your request will likely be supported, because your aligning with being of service is supported by Divine Will, and is something that the entire universe can get behind.
 
So… You can supercharge your intentions by having the pure intent to be of service.
 
Once you repeat aloud, or strongly in your mind the above invocation…
 
Keep your attention focused on your heart center, allowing your energy relax, as you then begin to tune in to a golden orb of light above your head.
 
Archangel Michael steps forward, shining down upon you the golden solar Christ light to cleanse your energy…
 
Tune into this brilliant orb of golden light. And imagine, that it’s shining down upon you in a golden column …
 
Surrounding your body, mind and spirit with a column of golden light.
 
Now, allow the golden light to enter into your heart center, so that your heart center is ignited, awakened and filled with this golden Solar Christ light.
 
Relax, and breathe into your heart center, letting the golden light of your heart center expand all around you, until you’re completely immersed in the light.
 
Let the orb of light expand around you so that you are at the center within your heart chakra, but the orb of light surrounds your entire being.
 
So the top of the orb is way above your head. The bottom of the orb is below your feet, and you’re completely surrounded with this glowing orb of light… Above, below, in front, beside, behind, within…
 
This glowing Sun of Solar Christ light and angelic energy is all around you. Feel the warmth, feel the tingling, feel the clearing that’s already taking place as your energy is being cleared and elevated just by having this golden orb of light around you.
 
But now, sense, imagine or visualize that the golden orb around you now begins to spin, in a counterclockwise motion around your body.
 
This orb of light spins, spinning faster and faster. spinning at the speed of light, unlocking from your energy field anything that’s no longer meant to be there… Releasing any lower vibrations, any negativity, any fear, toxins. attachments are all unlocked from your energy field and released through this spinning orb of light.
 
The angels are on hand to assist you in letting go and releasing into the light. And as this orb of light continues to spin and spin around, you faster and faster…
 
Archangel Michael is also assisting you in this clearing process.
 
It is as if your energy field is being vacuumed through this vortex spin. The orb spinning around you faster and faster, clearing your energy on every level.
 
As this happens, let your attention remain focused on your breathing… And as you breathe, let go of and pay attention to whatever arises. You may become aware of memories, feelings or sensations coming up to release… Don’t grasp on to them… Just be aware of them… And then let them go into the spinning orb of light cleansing your energy.
 
Stay with this visualization for as long as you like, and for as long as you feel guided. The longer you allow the orb of Solar golden light to spin around you the more deeply and thoroughly it will cleanse your energy.
 
Then when you feel ready, allow the orb of light to lift up above your being. And as it lifts, allow it to take with it any lingering fear energy, negativity, dense energy, stagnant energy, distortion, anything you’re carrying with you that you don’t need to … That doesn’t serve, that isn’t yours, or isn’t for your highest and greatest good.
 
Let it go.
 
So let this orb lift up and with it allow a final release of whatever needs to go.
 
Archangel Michael takes it, releasing it into the light
 
Now, tuning into the orb above your head once again…
 
Notice that it begins to shine down upon you in a waterfall of golden light, and angelic energy…
 
Rinsing your etheric body, rinsing your aura, cleansing your mind, body, and spirit with light and gently flowing into your heart center.
 
Once again, allow your heart to open and brightly shine … So that your heart light expands around you, illuminating your body with light, warmth, and with glowing angelic energy from within.
 
Let your heart light clearly and brightly shine, empowering you to stand in more of your authentic truth, and to brightly shine your light clear, radiant and bright to illuminate your surroundings.
 
To bless and uplift everyone you come in contact with, and to through resonance, attract to you the highest and best for you in your life.
 
When you’ve finished this cleansing practice I recommend ending with gratitude:
 
“Thank you to Archangel Michael and all the angels for assisting in cleansing my energy. I ask that you continue to guide and assist me in shining my highest light, embodying my truth and being of service at a higher level.”
