Re: Suggestions for a ritual that I'm working on

I'm actually setting this project aside. I think I have found a better way of accomplishing this, but we shall see what happens.

Suggestions for a ritual that I'm working on

So, that idea I mentioned in my HGA thread, to make a mask involving a sigil that I scried, did not really work out. My girlfriend and I both did tarot readings on the subject, and they both strongly suggested that I should not use the mask, and that there was a fundamental misunderstanding involved...

Re: Offended Selene

I've done a ton of preparatory work. I've also invoked her before, and it's always been a bit of a wild ride haha. This time was just the most powerfully she's ever manifested. This time around with the invocations, I'm working on balancing the masculine and feminine forces within myself. I've notic...

Re: Consecrating Tools

I can't really say exactly what you would want to do in your situation, but I can give an example of how I generally go about charging or consecrating my tools and amulets. I set up my altar with a few candles, the object in question, a bowl of water, and a bowl of salt. If I am charging it with or ...

Re: Offended Selene

Thanks for the replies you guys. Definitely some good bits of advice in there, and I'm glad it sounds like I'm handling this right haha. And this is actually something that comes up quite a bit. You went into the Ritual with certain expectations. When those were met - you thought you were done. When...

Offended Selene

Alright, so, having had a desire to do more experiments with using entheogens as a magical tool, last night I took some magic mushrooms and invoked Selene. For awhile it worked out really well, that was the first time she has mainfested so strongly. Then I made a dumb mistake and I'm pretty sure tha...

Welcome to the forum [yay] *Presses play on a small radio.

Re: My Beginner Questions

When it comes to the advice about practising banishing for a good period of time before doing anything big, I would extend that same advice. It's a good idea to at least have practised that kind of ritual for long enough to know that you'll be able to banish the hell out of anything that you may nee...

Re: In Emergencies, Rituals & Everything: Cleansing & Banish

Just to add a little bit more on the idea of constructing your own ritual. I actually used to perform my own version of the LBRP. Lol the construction of it wasn't thaaat good honestly, but it worked just as well as the real thing. These rituals need not be slavishly imitated; on the contrary the st...

Re: In Emergencies, Rituals & Everything: Cleansing & Banish

I personally prefer the Star Ruby when it comes to banishing. It's also my go to ritual when things get out of hand haha. If I'm in need of some heavy duty banishing, I like to follow the LBRP with the LBRH, and just cover all of my bases. But other times, if I find myself faced with a pesky spirit ...

Re: Sell my soul to or make contract with an entropic being?

I generally lean to the side of "selling your soul seems like a really bad idea". It's probably impossible to trade your soul for a life free of restriction. Even if it worked though, what if you decide it was a bad idea? Like amping up the entropy in the system that is your life is probably not som...

Re: non traditional methods of achieving K&C

That's interesting, I like the idea of using divining as a form of prayer. It sounds like a really sound approach to divination. That image that appears in your head is also really interesting, I'm not totally sure what to make of it either though haha. I haven't been reading Tarot for very long, bu...

Thank you, Insomni4c!

No problem haha. The differences between the different br...

Re: non traditional methods of achieving K&C

The HGA also isn't your Higher Self, it is its own being separate from you, and assigned to you by the powers that be to watch over your fates. It's precisely because the HGA is not the Higher Self that you can learn so much from it that isn't your own knowledge. I've heard arguments for both sides...

PoisonPen has a good point; if you're going out of your way for a spooky experience, you're going to have a spooky experience.

Re: On the Nature of Will and Determinism

1) The True Will is not your ordinary desire of the ego-personality. It is the Will of the Higher Self, that part of the Human that is named Spirit. The Spirit has its own Will, which is the True Will since the Spirit is the only part of the human being that is fully immortal from the start. This t...

There is no way to fight against the current of Will, Sure there is. It's called Discipline. Not if everything is the Will of the universe haha, which is what I was kind of getting at. In which case, that discipline would be just as much that Will as any other action, so it wouldn't really be fight...
