The Path of Initiation: Imagination, Inspiration, Intuition – Gnosis Denver

Gnosis is a cosmic teaching that aims to restore in each one of us the ability to live consciously and intelligently. One of the fundamental principles of Gnosis is that all Religions teach the same thing, they teach the Path to return to God (the Authentic Path of Initiation). And this path is present in the Kabalah and in the Tarot plates as well. God, for the Gnostic, is something which exists within, that every human being can connect with and access if they learn the methods to do so.

Something that we need to understand is that Kabalah and Tarot cards are not a game. They are a Symbolic representation of the Cosmic Science (the Science of the Union with God) which allows us to grasp the universe and our place in it. The Cosmic Science teaches us the path which will end all suffering. When we apply this Science to our lives, we can escape the laws of Evolution and become something like a Super-Man or Super-Woman.

But in order to do this, we must be serious about the work that is necessary on the Path to return to God (the Path of Authentic Initiation). This work is synthesized into the 3 Factors or the 3 Keys of the Revolution of the Consciousness:  Death, Birth and Sacrifice.

THE GOLDEN HANDSHAKE: The Secrets of a Neophyte

In the ceremony of Reception, the candidate is instructed in the secrets of the Neophyte grade. These are the modes of recognition present in most mundane organizations and societies, as well as to other esoteric orders of this nature. It is common for students of the Order to spend much time studying other features of the basic rudiments of Occult science, and neglect the grip and word as mere `claptrap`not worthy of attention. Any attempt given to understanding the import of these symbols is not a wasted effort by any means, for they are in fact of great importance. Even a small amount of study by the new Neophyte magician will reveal why these are indeed considered to be `the secrets of the grade`.

The Many Magical Uses of Herbal Waters

Herbal washes and waters are among the most popular tools used in traditional forms of shamanism and folk magick around the world. They have existed for as long as humans have known how to make herbal teas, but their uses go far beyond medicinal beverages. In fact, they are exceptionally powerful tools in any witch‘s arsenal—it might just be easier to list the ways in which herbal waters cannot be used than to list all of their diverse applications. Visit any botanica (shops that cater to African and Caribbean Traditions, such as Santeria, Voodoo, and Hoodoo) and you will typically find several shelves fully stocked with herbal washes for as many purposes as you can imagine….

The Hermetic Hour – The Magick of Franz Bardon – YouTube

The Hermetic Hour presents a lecture on the magick of Franz Bardon, the 20th century European alchemist and magician. Bardon was the author of three books on magick, and one semi-autobiographical novel. His Eastern style methods of training, owing much to raja and tantric yoga, have had a considerable influence on modern Western practice. We will discuss each of his three books in sequence; where his information came from, and what his philosophy was. You will learn about “fluid condensers,” “volts,” “elementals,” magnetic and electric fluids, and magick mirrors. His debt to P. B. Randolph will be mentioned. We will discuss the origins of his myriads of spirits, the way he derived his sigils, his unique concept of Kabbalah. Bardon’s background as a professional hypnotist, alchemist and healer will be compared to his mundane life and problems. The Master was an over-weight chain-smoker who died after eating a bacon sandwich—but he was still “The Master,” and we should appreciate him all the more for the faults that made him human. Tune in find out why Simon, King of the Witches kept saying “Magnetic-Electric,” while having fun with the D.A.’s daughter.

Shamanic Meditation:  936hz Shaman Ayahuasca Ceremony DMT Release Meditation – YouTube

This audio track was made as a meditative technique that uses spiritual notes, solfeggio frequencies and real Native Shaman singing and chanting. This combination will help the mind generate particular wave patterns whose fields induce resonance in the brain. Such effects will occur because of the specific fields they generate within the brain. These fields cause multiple systems to vibrate and pulse at certain frequencies. You will be able to feel your mind and body resonate with these spiritual sounds. Of course, the pineal gland will also buzz at these same frequencies. The pineal gland will begin to vibrate at frequencies that weaken its multiple barriers to DMT formation. The end result will be a psychedelic surge of the pineal spirit molecule, resulting in a subjective states of mystical consciousness.

I have extended this track and edited out the whistle as many people requested. You can find it here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCSIp…

A Shaman is a person regarded as having access to, and influence in, the world of good and evil spirits, especially among some peoples of northern Asia and North America. Typically such people enter a trance state during a ritual, and practice divination and healing.

Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content. or as an end in itself.

The Pentagrammaton of Eliphas Levi

Evocation:

The Spirit of God moved upon the waters, and breathed into the face of man the breath of life. Let Michael be my leader, and Sabtabiel my servant, in light and by light.

Let the Verb be my breath, and I will command the spirits of air thereby, and I will bridle the horses of the Sun with the will of my heart, and the thoughts of my mind and the commandment of my right eye.

I therefore exorcise thee, creature of air by Pentagrammaton and in the name of Tetragrammaton, in which is firm will and true faith. Amen, Selah, Fiat, so mote it be.)

Prayer of the Sylphs:

Spirit of light, spirit of wisdom, whose breath gives and takes away the form of all things; you before whom the life of beings is a shadow which changes and a vapor which passes; you who raise the clouds and who walks on the wings of the winds; you who exhale, and then the space without end is peopled; you who inhale, and then all which comes from you goes back to you.

Movement without end in eternal stability, be eternally blessed. We praise you and we bless you in the ever-changing empire of the created light, of shadows, of reflections, and of images, and we aspire ceaselessly to your immutable and imperishable clarity.

Allow the ray of your intelligence and the warmth of your love to penetrate all the way to us: then that which is mobile shall be fixed, the shadow shall be a body, the spirit of air shall be a soul, the dream will be a reality. And we will never again be carried away by the storm, because we will hold the bridles of the winged horses of dawn and will rule the race of the night winds to fly to your presence.

O Creator, breath of all beings! In the flow and reflow of your Eternal Word, that is the Divine Ocean of Movement, Protect us! Be it so!
